“My soon-to-be bride all of a sudden disappeared. And I turned into a monster to find her”. The drama depicts the heartbreaking, pure love by a man, who drives himself to the extreme situation in order to find his only love, his bride.
Cast & Credits
Helpful Hint: I found the first episode rather boring, the second episode ok, the third episode full of misunderstandings and then it gets good by episode 4 and you'll be completely hooked by episode 5!
"the heartbreaking, pure love by a man, who drives himself to the extreme situation in order to find his only love, his bride." <Pretty much describes the base of the drama - and it was presented in such a powerful and touching way! Thank you OCN!
Cast: Kim Do Hyung (Kim Mu Yeol) a man with a painful upbringing falls in love with a girl from his high school - they get separated and meet again, are about to get married and then she vanishes - he looks for her like any man would, finds himself messed up with the police and loan-sharks and something even more sinister behind the loan-sharks. I have never seen someone love as sincerely and as deeply as Kim Do Hyung does on this drama - it's powerful! It's a new definition of self-less love! He'd sacrifice and risk anything just to protect his "Beautiful Bride" - and man was this guy good at keeping a secret a secret! He was also in the UDT in the Marines for his military service - and I sure hope I get to see some more dramas with guys from that unit! B/c they know how to FIGHT! This guy wowed me several times with some of the things he'd do - I was stunned at things I saw - He was that good! And I loved how all the bad guys referred to him as "the bank guy" - I'd laugh whenever they'd say "the bank guy did that?" :P Yoon Joo Young/Joo Hee (Go Sung Hee) - not my favorite actress (she still needs practice) but she did pretty good in the beginning of the drama - towards the latter part I found her a bit annoying and she seemed to keep making stupid decisions (but that didn't ruin the drama for me). Cha Yoon Mi (Lee Shi Young) a great detective, who was a great partner in helping Do Hyung catch the bad guys and find Joo Young.
All other actors did well in their roles - especially Ryu Seung Soo as Seo Jin Ki - I knew he could play the bad guy role exceptionally well already - since he was the bad guy in drama special 'Sirius'.
Music: 'Stay' by Steelheart < My absolute favorite track off the entire drama!!! I love listening to it and singing it on repeat! <3 Awesome song! ^_^
I would definitely re-watch this drama if only to see those awesome action packed fight scenes again! ;) and the flashback romance stories were so romantic^^ <3

As a OCN serious project , (My Beautiful Bride) is surely one of the good ones but ... could be much better !
STORYLINE : 7.5 /10
A man who's totally in love with his fiance , suddenly loses her and through finding her , strange and interesting facts about him and his lover are revealed to the audiences.
The fact that he knows everything about her past but keeps acting like he doesn't have a clue , was meaningful and a brand new one to me !
BUT unfortunately the storyline losts the balance it had between action and romance as the story goes on and on ! The main idea was good but you can see it's not processed goodly specially as love story !
It feels like the writer just wants to sum up the couple's past and their complicated love-life at the few first Episodes , cause he/she insists on getting to the Action and Crime parts ASAP ! But the surprising and shocking fact is that the screenwriter of this drama (Yoo Sung Yeol) is the creator of the greatest action K-drama ever seen =&amp;amp;gt; CRUEL CITY !
I'm not saying that this drama IS NOT a sucess but who can compare it with (Cruel City) , U know !!!
ACTING : 8/10
(Kim Moo Yul) : After watching his unbeatable , incomparable and unique way of acting I was like : Where Have You Been ?! Lol ! It's such a pity that it was my first time enjoying his acting skills ! He truely shined ! and I wish he'll appear in more action dramas !
(Lee Si Young) : I mean what's with that character ?! You know sometimes you wanna punch a good actor/actress in face for choosing a pitiful role to play and maybe you punch the writer instead , for creating that kind of character ! Anyways ! Let's stop punching ! XD I really don't have any doubt about
her acting ! I've seen enough of her skills in (Divine Move) and (Killer Toon) action movies ! But hey that character was really a disaster !
(Ko Sung Hee) : thinking carefuly about her acting I don't think she was that bad but she wasn't good enough too ! I think she needs to learn more about natural kind of acting where you can find true emotions through someone's glance or even way of talking ! she couldn't goodly response to the feelings the first male lead sent to her ! (you know what I mean ) comparing to what we saw of her in SPY drama she has improved a lot but has got a long long way to go !
Other actings were also admirable ! thumbs up for them all !
MUSIC : 8/10
WOW ! I loved the unexampled soundtracks !!! And I loved that they were in English ! XD I didn't need to check the meaning anyway ! They really matched with the project.
REWATCH VALUE : 7/10
For director (Kim Cheol Kyu) , this is his first ever action drama (if I'm not mistaken) and as the first one ... let's give him a round of pleasure !
I liked the ending ! it wasn't very special but it was totally suitable .
As I mentioned the storyline isn't processed enough for the whole 16 episodes and it could be even more challenging and thrilling , for the audiences not to feel bored little by little !
Those action things were great and as good as they should be ! I really don't have any negative points to mention about fightings... e.t.c !
I don't have any plans for rewatching this now but maybe I'll give it a try later !
The drama style is my cup of tea , after all !
Thanks for reading my words ! Enjoy your action drama ;) XD
