Actor Shin Hyun Joon recalled his relationship with Kim Tae Hee.
On February 20th, Shin Hyun Joon had an interview ahead of the release of the movie “The Assassin” in Samcheong-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul.
During the interview, Shin Hyun Joon mentioned SBS’s drama “Stairway to Heaven”, which aired in 2003. The drama is still a hot topic to this day thanks to the acting skills of the cast and famous scenes.
