A KDRAMA RECOMMENDATION =)Heartless City (2013)

JTBC Monday -Tuesday Aired May- July 2013   I am back from my hiatus and practically hitting my head against December, so naturally I am thinking back on all of 2013’s dramas, which makes me totally remember how much I freakin’ deakin’ loved Heartless City, which then leads me to this very moment where I make yet another post demanding, begging, pleading with other drama fans to give a my favorite drama this year a chance.
