Healer Drama Review
Summary: An event which happened decades ago brings together three completely different people; an errand boy who goes by the codename Healer (Ji Chang Wook), a second rate internet reporter, Chae Young Shin(Park Min Young), and a star news reporter, Kim Moon Ho(Yoo Ji Tae). All three were affected by the event in different ways, though Kim Moon Ho is the only one who remembers it, and all three will have to work together to solve it.
(That was possibly the worst summary I've ever written but this drama is so hard to explain. Very good but so difficult to summarize.)
Review: Just how I like my drama heroes, mysterious, in love, adorably-dorky, and hard core awesome. Oh I could have watched another 20 episodes of this drama. Sleek, fast paced, full of good angst, smart characters, and a romance that made my heart skip beats. The writing was spot on, though not without flaws. It's been a while since I've gotten so engrossed in a drama and so taken by it's leads that I've wanted to do nothing but watch it. This drama was stylish like City Hunter but without the noble stupid-idiot angst. Our characters were well developed with their own special flaws and thought processes. The plot was interesting and moved quickly. Characters weren't there just to push the plot along or force our leads together, they did that all on their own. Every character had a purpose and each purpose was relevant to the plot. The chemistry between our leads was fantastic. The acting and emotions were amazing. I could watch this drama over and over and I might do just that. Some people might say this drama is overrated, but they are so wrong! Yes it is popular but for good reasons!
Memorable Moment: Oh heavens, how to pick one... Everything I want to pick spoils something in the drama... Every scene with Ji Chang Wook? Seriously though. I'm going to go with the Movie Theater Date in episode 11. Such a simple yet cute scene.
Young Shin goes out for her perspective date and wanders around and narrates how the possible date would go. They'd walk around while talking and laughing and then stop at a food stand.
Such a cute scene! I watched it so many times. The beauty of this scene is seeing Jung Ho indulge himself a little.
