I love sageuks. I always do. When they come in with romance and eye candy I just end up loving them. Jang Ok Jung is one of such sageuks. Is it brilliant? NO. Is it entertaining? Hell YES. This is why I gave this drama an 8 in spite of the things that bugged me about it.

Firstly, the plot is fictional as well as realistic. It presents you the love between read more King Sukjong and Jang Hee Bin as epic and legendary irrespective of what happened in reality. It was a controversy in Korea but hell I don't care- I am not a Korean. It presents me a history with all the twists and tropes of a formulaic Kdrama. However whatever it presented was cute, sad and likable. But I have to say I was yelling in some parts because of having seen Dong Yi before (they are related, you see). So separating Dong Yi and Jang Ok Jung is crucial when you watch either of the two.

I loved the romance between Lee Soon and Ok Jung. Both Yoo Ah In and Kim Tae Hee are ridiculously good-looking people and had believable chemistry together. Their romance was for most part cutesy and angst-ridden. It's been a while since I've seen a drama like this one. I also liked the male second lead in it and plan to stalk the guy from now on. :D

There were moments when this drama had me tearing out my hair in frustration or left me plain annoyed. Similarly it left me very high when it had its good parts going. So this drama managed to make me feel a variety of emotions. It is even cheesy at its best in many parts where you just wanna LOL but it is so DAMN entertaining!

For me the drama was an interesting one-time watch. The OST wasn't great but I didn't hate it either. Overall, this drama is good and definitely worth the time.

I actually started this drama when it first began airing but at that time I was distracted by other dramas (mostly Pinocchio) and gave up on it after watching only half of first episode. I picked it up again after a couple of months. 14 episodes were out by then and I remember dramathoning the whole thing in two days straight. This drama is seriously addictive and edgy. The plot is fantastically read more written and every ending makes you want more. And apart from the amazing action and thriller sequences, this drama has a great romance. There are no second leads annoying you but there are those terribly sweet jealousy moments. I love mysterious sexy male leads who turn clingy and cute. I can't believe the ratings for this drama weren't sky-rocketing in Korea. I really don't understand Korean preferences. They watch makjang shows one after the other but when gems like Healer turn up, they switch the channel.

Coming to characters, Healer. God I love healer. I love how he's jumping around buildings and coming up with these exciting plans. I love what he does for a living and I love his little high-tech shack. I love that he's a loner. I've only watched Ji Chang Wook in Empress Ki other than this drama but I must say he is always a delight to watch.

Park Min Young. I must admit that the only reason I ever hesitated to watch this drama, it was because of Park Min Young. I've watched many of her dramas and I've generally not cared much for her roles. But it was Kim Nana in City Hunter that ticked me off. God I hate Nana. She's a bodyguard who needs a bunch of bodyguards. In fact, I think it would be better if someone locked her up somewhere far, far away until everyone's done with whatever they're trying to do. She seriously messes things up and then goes around acting cute about it. So, yeah, basically I was weary that Park Min Young is going to play a role like Nana here. But I guess 2015 is the year of Reinvention for Korean actresses (with Park Shin Hye also winning hearts for her performance in Pinocchio). Park Min Young not only did a wonderful job in this drama, her character Cha Yeong Shin was a delight to watch. There were a few times in this drama where I held my breath because I was afraid that Yeong Shin would make a terrible choice that would create a havoc and make me hate her. But she was so awesome at those points that it really made me love her character overall.

The rest of the cast was great too. My favorites were definitely ajjumma and Yeong Shin's family (her dad and the rest of the criminal staff). I really held my breath there towards the end when I had a feeling Ajjumma is going to die. My Eun Shi Kyung feels were returning to me, I was all set to cry. I'll never forget that moment of relief when I realized she will escape. Thank you writers for not killing her off. I wish they had shown an emotional reunion of mother and daughter though. The ending was just a little rushed. Or maybe it's just me never wanting Healer to end. lol.

The music was great. I have the whole album on my phone. My personal favorites are Eternal Love and When You Hold Me Tight. I like that song by Ji Chang Wook too, although I've only heard it a few times.

Overall it's a masterpiece and even though the ratings in Korea weren't all that great I'm so glad it's getting it's due on MDL (9.2 avg yay!) and other internet portals. It's doing well in China too, with Ji Chang Wook being one of the most searched Korean actors there these days. I guess a good story would always find it's worth one way or the other.

I've waited for a few weeks before deciding to do a review because I wanted to try to write a balanced review.

I didn't know anything about Healer until episode 6 had already been aired and I was stuck with no other drama to watch. I've seen Ji Chang Wook in Warrior Baek Dong Soo and although I liked the drama, I didn't take a special notice of Ji Chang Wook. I read more decided give it a go and at first I thought it had a similar feel to City Hunter which I loved.

First few episodes were interesting enough for me to continue but by the time I watched episode 6, I was totally hooked. I ended up marathoning all 6 episodes in one night and then joined the sad Healer fan club and live streamed the rest which I thoroughly enjoyed.

Without a doubt, the thing that got me into this drama was the characters. The writer, Song Ji Na did a remarkable job of creating a bunch of very unique and interesting characters with depth. Luckily for us, the actors were perfectly casted for their roles and they brought the characters to life brilliantly. The interactions among all the actors felt very real and genuine due to a great script.

The main characters are not your usual two dimensional Kdrama characters. They may each have a past which has effected who they are presently but the way they react or behave will pleasantly surprise you. This is a drama that managed to avoid most of the Kdrama cliches which was so refreshing to watch.

I know many people have already gushed about the OTP. But I really got to say, this is the best OTP I have come across in any drama. The chemistry between Ji Chang Wook and Park Min Young were undeniably off the chart GOOD. You know a drama is good when it grabs you and sucks you into their world and when you are watching it, you don't see the actors, you only see the characters they are portraying.

Now the story, I was a little confused about what was going on for the first few episodes and the flash backs to the past didn't make much sense at first. But it was like pealing an onion, as the drama progressed the relevance of the flash backs became more obvious and meaningful.I have to admit that the story itself isn't that original as it is about a typical story of the wrongdoings of previous generation having ramifications for the next generation. I think the execution of the story could have been better if the momentum of the build up towards something big at the end was more focused.

As for action scenes in Healer, some were good and some were not so good. The parkour was the most disappointing aspect, they shouldn't have used any wires for those scenes because the beauty of parkour is the fact that you are using agility and skills to move around. Too many of the action scenes were either too blurry or done in the dark. I know I am being critical here but it's because I really appreciate good action scenes. However, Ji Chang Wook looked very capable and cool as Healer in action. He certainly had the swagger and pulled off the nonchalant attitude of Healer perfectly every time.

I am giving an overall score of 10/10. Why? Because watching this drama gave me more 'feels' than I've ever experienced with any other drama. Like I said before, it's all about the characters. I couldn't help investing in the characters because they were so relatable and likeable. This may not be a ground breaking drama but I sure enjoyed watching it, and it actually made me happy and that's why I would recommend this drama.

I loved this series. I never thought I'd find such an interesting take on female characterization and deconstruction of female stereotypes in this drama by the time I started watching it. I was faced with my own pre-conceptions of internalized misogyny more than once and I thank it for showing me better. The sisters seemingly represent prototypes of female characters, showing in the surface what the viewer can easily assume, whereas the read more only character who really knows them fully is non other than their mother, whose figure is extremely important. This drama works on the value that women give themselves versus the one society gives them in a lot of moments, especially in Takemi's character but also in every one of the sisters. Takemi superficially seems the careless gorgeous heart-breaker, Fujiko seems like the obsessive over-achiever, Sakurako seems like the girl who just wants to settle down in the most traditional way and Ume seems like the artsy teen with low self esteem. And they are that. Only in part. Discovering these characters throughout the series is like seeing the tip of an iceberg to then explore what's lying beneath. And, as a girl, I felt very deeply many of the worries and tribulations these girls go through. Yes, there are some plot-lines that could have been better taken care of and some characters that could have been more developed, but all in all, it's a drama where girls are the center and they're realistically portrayed, all funny exaggerations and caricature moments aside. I really loved this drama.

Honestly, the only reason why this drama dragged a bit was because the concept was waaaay too simple. A guy was a coward and never confessed to his first love and now she's getting married to another man, so he travels back in time and tries to change things. In my opinion, this would've been great for a mini-series, but not a drama. Basically, the writers had 16 episodes on their hands read more with one simple storyline, so they had to keep stretching and stretching and repeating and repeating until finally, whew, the ending yay. There were many moments in this drama when it was like he purposely CHOSE the harder path for himself. It seemed that no matter what he did, he never. got. the girl. Why? Because if he did, what the hell were the writers gonna do for the rest of the show? Write 5 hours worth of them cuddling and being all romantic? Still, I found myself rooting for Baek Ho all the same. There were many times where I have wanted to slap him for being an idiot, or yell at him for being an idiot, or beat him up because HE WAS AN IDIOT. It's like, does he not remember what he went through to get to where he was? He just goes and throws it away like it's nothing? Oookay. There was this one time that I legit spit out my water mid-drink and started yelling at the screen upon hearing a facepalm worthy thing happening. Just prepare yourself.

The actors were definitely not the problem in this drama. Everyone was great. Yoo Seung Ho never disappoints (as always) and Park Eun Bin matched him pretty well. I don't know if it's because they were childhood friends (ok let's be real here it's because they were childhood friends) but they had heaps of chemistry. I didn't like Yi Seul (portrayed by Park Eun Bin) towards the end though. It was pretty obvious in the beginning that she was someone with a spine; a girl who spoke her thoughts and definitely wasn't shy. However, towards the end its like someone reached inside and completely crushed it. She was told time and time again "I like you", hints were dropped, actions were done. And yet. Your crush for 2 decades confesses to you and you say "Nice joke"?! Wow. Anyway, it's all good though, because she grew her spine back pretty quickly. Overall, everyone was amazing, even the small supporting roles.

If you read my other reviews, you'll see that music almost never stands out to me in dramas unless its from a historical drama. I don't know, I'm just like that haha. For me, I either like really kpop-y songs or deep emotional songs. There is no in between ;)

I also don't tend to rewatch dramas, simply because there are always scenes in dramas that I don't like but watch anyway because it's my first time and I need to know everything, but the second time around I just skip. What's the point of watching if you're just gonna skip everything, right? But who knows, maybe one day when I've forgotten about it I'll come back.

Overall, this wasn't a bad drama, and the actors certainly weren't bad either. The concept was just too simple. There were too many times where I was like "If only you done THIS, or if only you had listened to her, or if only you didn't misunderstand so easily." But, give it a watch. I find it kind of fun when dramas aggravate you, and this one definitely will.

Healer is really an unexpectedly amazing drama, because I really didn't expect it to be as nice as I imagined it to be initially! It's a drama that don't draws your attention just by watching first or second episode, but you will get hooked eventually as you continue watching.
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THIS DRAMA: HOLY MOLY CAN I JUST SPAZZ ABOUT THE SOUNDTRACKS FIRST?! The OSTs are super duper perfect - read more they just fit into those scenes whenever they are played! I got myself grooving along the songs especially Eternal Love. And I have got to say this song really has got the power that makes me feel like crying whenever it is played. (":
Okay, moving on, yes the casts. Even those villains are really great because they make us hate them so much especially that annoying Secretary Oh HAHAHA! And I'd really want to compliment Ji Chang Wook for his acting skills! I admit that it is really my first time watching his drama and one word - DAEBAK! His facial expressions really tells it all how he feels - especially the scene when he wanted to cry but had to hold it in. )': The actress played as Choi Myung Hee is another one I would like to praise. She just somehow attracts my attention because of how she could actually portray the character very well, making me want to love her yet pity her at the same time! Hope to see her in future dramas! (:
And yup, the story plot is what that makes this drama receiving so many likes! EVERY SINGLE EPISODE IS JUST FULL OF EXCITEMENT, TENSION... YEAH JUST 20 STRONG AMAZING EPISODES. Really expected a few episodes to be draggy like some dramas, but it really didn't happen.
WHAT I DISLIKE ABOUT THE DRAMA: Hmmm... I would have to say that the ending was really a rushed one though. They didn't show what happen to Ahjumma and MyungHee and other small characters which was slightly disappointing.
Overall, really worth watching drama. And please don't compare with City Hunter because it is definitely and way different! Honestly, this drama attracts my attention more than watching City Hunter. OKAY I AM HAVING WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS NOW ):

Let me start by saying that I normally dislike specials, I find them boring. However, I really liked this special. I watched every minute and was actually interested.

The story is about Next Innovation still trying to improve and develop the Personal File project, and Toru and Makoto's relationship. We are seriously playing fast and loose with the tern "NEW YORK special". Its a normal special with a few bits of cringey read more English and about twenty minutes in total of New York scenes.
I found the script and enjoyable and comedic, without being over the top. I loved the bit when Makoto was buying things for the house, it was very nice to see more of their relationship. The story was quite realistic and mirrored the normal problems we all go through when trying to figure out where you are in a relationship, and all the new things that come with it. The acting was amazing in my opinion, couldn't fault it at all.

While it was enjoyable, I probably wouldn't re-watch. Also, the soundtrack really starts to grind on you. There are only so many times you can hear the same song before wanting to mute the TV and stab yourself in the ear.

I am writing this review after watching this drama for the third time. And every time I re-watched this drama, I have rated it a little bit higher. Yes, the story isn't exactly original or unpredictable but I have to admit that it is entertaining.

I have no idea what the budget for this drama was but they must have spend it a bit, especially for the overseas locations. I can't say read more that the actions were done that well but for a Kdrama, it has one of the biggest gun battle scene I've seen in a drama.

Overall, the acting was okay, the story was good but what was exceptional was the OSTs, there were some very memorable ones that stays with you.

I would recommend this drama to anyone who is bored with rom-coms or melodramas and want something with a revenge theme and a lot of action.

Story was awesome, you will never know what will happen next and will want to watch the next episode fast...

Acting: Yes, they can definitely act... I could feel the angst, and the King's smile, will just melt your heart.

Rewatch Value: well, I won't it is just that I like watching over and over again happy and light dramas, this drama is full of heavy emotions.

I would have rated it read more higher IF I liked the ending. I am just a sucker of "happy" endings. So, it is worth the watch and painful too (well it was tragic...) so many tragedies in one drama...

I kept putting off this drama because of the title- "Rich man, Poor woman" really?! But after going on a Oguri Shun binge I decided I may as well give it a go.
The first episode didn't draw me in, but I never give up watching something when I've only seen the first ep, be in English or Japanese. I'm so happy I kept on because I LOVED this!! Hyuga Toru can read more be the rich man to this poor woman any day.

The story isn't original: a rich, arrogant, attractive business man hires a poor clumsy woman to work for him. Sounds basic and dull, but it's the opposite. I found myself staying up till 4am binge watching episode after episode, I just couldn't look away. The acting was flawless, I am already a big Oguri fan but will have to add Ishihara Satomi to my list! She was amazing and so beautiful, I will be checking out more of her work now. Also- her characters style is on point, I found myself super envious over all her outfits.

I loved the music, found myself singing along on more than one occasion. I will be buying this on DVD to re-watch soon. This is a must watch for any romantic comedy fan. Now I'm off to watch the New York special!

My kid introduced me to Korean Dramas, and my life was never the same again. I could not get enough, not to mention nothing gets done in my house anymore, but I digress. I am another one of those swear by Korean Dramas until I drop. However, because of Arron Yan, I checked out Taiwanese Dramas, and boy I did not know what I was missing. I watched Autumn's Concerto after another read more Xtreme must see Drama, FATED TO LOVE YOU. When you watch a quality drama like Autumn's Concerto, I, as a U.S. tv viewer, wonder why do I bother watching any of the garbage they now have in the states. Autumn's Concerto, sent me into such a roller coaster ride of high and low emotions. The story is basically a fated pair of star crossed lovers from extreme wealth and poor backgrounds. Drama had typical tyrannical mother-in-law, self-sacrificing but very frustrating to watch main female lead and HOT, Alpha, Gorgeous male lead. Bonus is the cutest and sweetest little child actor, you will ever meet. He was absolutely adorable!!! Drama will put you through the ringer of lots of crying moments, but I promise you a happy ending. Nuff said, Just watch it, Highly Recommend.

An extraordinary movie that sums up the courage of a middle cast woman who under goes the lamentable circumstances in a world where 'justice' and 'humanity' are just dictionnary entries.. The movie is bit long but it is not at all boring since every scene contributes to the climax of the story. 'The Road Home' is based on a true story, so it is a perfect portrait of the world as it read more is. A must watch for everyone who got the courage and the will to open the eyes to see the real face of this materialistic world,

I was looking forward to watching this movie. I had heard it was one of the bigger hits in Korea so I had high expectations. In the end, it was a silly little look at marriage and the various stages of relationships.

The film relies a great deal on gimmicky and a slightly crude type of humor instead of what I considered funny and clever dialogue between the characters. There were several read more amusing moments between Jung In and Doo Hyun that were easy to relate to. When couples are together for any length of time their barriers disappear and modesty gets pushed aside. These scenes, though a bit over the top, were also realistic and I understood some of the difficulties they were facing. I felt for Jung In as a frustrated housewife and for Doo Hyun as a disappointed husband.

The story is predictable. There are quirky scenes and entertaining antics but one the biggest details I noticed was the growth of Jung In as an independent woman. The other characters seemed to revolve around her and served more as a backdrop to her story than having their own identities. The out of touch and obviously clueless husband Doo Hyun had his own journey and realizations but it didn't grab me as much as Jung In's.

I found part of the movie very telling of cultural perceptions of a woman’s role in society. Whether women are housewives, mothers or work outside the home is often strongly judged by other people. Opinionated and straightforward women can come across as threatening to those around them. Jung In is one of these women. While this plot was used for some laughs, it also felt too serious and out of place in what I thought was supposed to be a wacky comedy.

It was interesting to watch Ryu Seung Ryong as Sung Ki, the Casanova. On one hand, he was portrayed as a depressed and tortured soul but on the other hand he seemed overly cartoonish and ridiculous. It was difficult to take anything his character did seriously, even when I think I was supposed to. Ryu Seung Ryong did have a deadpan look I found humorous. One of his funnier moments was after a scene that mimicked a famous sequence from one of Patrick Swayze's most beloved films here in America. I enjoyed seeing that particular Hollywood reference.

Even though this was supposed to be a comedy, the comedic scenes felt disjointed and did not flow well. I felt as if I wasn't getting all the play on words or meanings intended. This may have been due to translation or maybe I just have an off sense of humor and couldn't relate. The bottom line, not all jokes are universally funny. I found the beginning amusing, the middle a bit jumbled and the end a little somber and slow. Overall, whether it was funny or not, I enjoyed watching two people revisit their relationship and what made them fall in love in the first place.
