    Actor Seo In-guk in Pipeline, Doom At Your Service, Reply 1997, Squad 38 & More

    Here's another foray into the wilds of Dramaland on the back of our yak - specifically a "shigan yohaeng" (time travel) into Seo In-guk's filmography, from his recent film, Pipeline, all the way back to the impression he made as Yoon Yoon-jae in Reply 1997 (aka Answer Me 1997)...and even further back than that. What was your first Seo In-guk? We'd love to know!

This yak is premiere-heavy—we discuss our first impressions of a LOT of shows, as well as some ongoing and final thoughts on other dramas.
