    Pretty cool stuff. Actually, w.r.t. Iwai, I think he’s actually quite big in Japan, even though he’s relatively unknown here in the us. I had a couple of foreign exchange classmates in college, and when I asked them to name a current big name Japanese director, they said Iwai.

    Nice show, and keep it up!

    Korean films and television series are really becoming more interesting each year. The concepts are unique and they go all out in terms of production design. It’s not surprising that they are so popular in different countries in Asia especially in the Philippines.
