It makes me recall my childhood!
25 August 2016 | by (South Korea) – See all my reviews

It's been a long time ago that I saw kinds of TV show dealing with an innocent child story. While having this show, I was so busy recalling my missing childhood when I was braver and more active than any friends of mine. In this show, I especially like the scene where Chris and Caruso(perhaps the strongest boys of his friends)continued fighting in words because Chris showed his bravery in front of everyone in the school. Also, I obviously felt as if I were in the show because the story developed with Chris talking about his daily life. Are you exhausted with a busy, heavy- scheduled life? then, I want you to have this show, return to your happy childhood and put aside your stresses for a short time.
