    When I heard that Ji Soo and Kim So Hyun are going to be the lead actors of “River Where the Moon Rises” I immediately waited for this drama to be broadcasted and as expected I was totally not disappointed. So far, their action scenes were on the track, acting abilities were great and there was also stunning cinematography and OST.
    PS.Will be waiting if Jisoo’s finally going to have an endgame this time or at least have a nice ending uwu.
