Cast & Credits
If I had to describe Man of Honor in one word it would be disappointing, because disappoint it will. The story was supposed to be about a nurse and a baseball player who find love in their journey. This was EXTREMELY misleading. Yun Jae In (Park Min Young) was a nurse in training, and Kim Young Kwang (Chun Jung Myung) was a washed up baseball player with one successful game in his career, for about two episodes (and one more after being absent for 20 episodes). The remainder of the series mainly deals with faux-cest and revenge. The story was very makjang driven and unstable. It seemed like the writer didn't really know where he was going with the story, which made it feel unfinished towards the end.
Despite these flaws, Man of Honor was fairly enjoyable until midway through, after about episode 12, the story went on an unsalvageable downward spiral.
While the main problem lies within the writing, the acting was also poor. There was a lot of overacting, and Park Min Young looked as though she had a mental illness when she smiled widely for minutes on end.
Overall, this is not a drama that I would recommend, and it is longer than the average of 16 episodes (this one totals 24). There are many good to outstanding dramas out there that can be substituted for this much inferior one.
When I started watching the drama, I had a lot of expectations. My best friend is a baseball fanatic and it kind of rubbed into me; so I was pretty excited at the beginning solely because of the baseball factor. If you were hoping for some baseball action, then forget it.
You're in for a borderline ridiculous plot about revenge and the strong hold of the past on these characters' lives, really bad acting, non-existant chemistry between the two main leads, extremely evil and insane cut-board characters (stereotypical), and a great dosage of lameness in between. LAME. SILLY. This is what this drama is.
Don't watch it if you don't want to waste your time. I wish I could take all the time I spent on this back. >:O
