By in News posted Oct October 16th, 2014 No comments

 

"Modern Farmer," the k-drama about a disenchanted band that tries to live the country life, begins this weekend. The drama, which stars FT Island"s Lee Hongki, Park Min Woo, Lee Si Un, Lee Ha Nui and Kwak Dong Yeon, is the latest in a k-drama legacy about the boys in the band.
