Editor’s Comments
Well, what i can say about this great Korean Drama. I not used to watch asian dramas, but since we had KBS World on the TV and my Sister watching it, soon i ended watching it as well. At first i tho it was another of those Dramas with guns and drugs and that. But hey, since the story passes it get really interesting. So interesting that i’ve downloaded already the Full episoded, and it still going to watch . I really recommend this drama, it worth watching and makes you so bad to watch the next episode, until the last episode on a single day…
Oh and last, the main Actress is the one from old and famous korean drama
Stairway in Heaven.

Stay tuned with this post, i’m going to provide soon the OST of IRIS / 아이리스.
