Surprisingly, I am watching sageuk again. I believe Queen for Seven Days is my second one this year. The first one was with my Yoo Seung Ho in Ruler. And I also started Six Flying Dragons early this week with Mari. Trust me, I have more historical dramas to watch. Now that I am no longer allergic to sageuk, I will watch more and more. Be prepared *wink*.
From one reporter drama to another reporter drama, it suddenly becoming a trend again. I usually avoid the same kind of drama back to back but Healer is getting so much commotion and hype, and my tweeter feed is constantly bombed by Healer tweets I just can’t help but to join the crowd too. I saw the first couple of episodes and I was just meh… I remember telling myself that it is okay to not have the same mutual feeling as others. The next night, I saw another two and another two and another two. After episode 8, I started to feel something weird. My heart was not completely shaken but I felt something. That something is quite tingling and I like it! I like it a lot!
Healer reminded me of City Hunter but in my opinion, it never really exceeds the coolness of City Hunter. Lee Min Ho was definitely daebak as Lee Yoon Sung but Ji Chang Wook did not meet that coolness (due to lack of action as the story progress) I wanted but still…. watching him leaping from one building to another, he is still a badass! But you know what, he met my expectation in the romance department. The marriage of quirky and charming he brought in as Park Bong Soo stole my heart completely. I like that one minute he is a badass, kickass swoon-worthy Jung Hoo and another minute he’s a teddy-bear cuddly cutie pie Bong Soo. I was torn between the two but I know ultimately it is Jung Hoo that we will end up with. And surprise surprise, Park Min Young is as good as she was in City Hunter. Perhaps this style of drama really appeals to her personality. As Young Shin, she’s quite a feisty and strong and I like her character a lot. Strong yet feminine. I like that and she is creative when she received rejections.
At this moment, Healer is scheduled to run for 20 episodes and 16 episodes have aired so far and we have two more weeks before it ends. I have not heard any extension rumor and I hope there will be no extension. Healer story is not complicated but it seems like my mind is complicating it. I tried to write my own synopsis but in the end, it sounded so awful and tacky and frankly, quite disaster too so I think the best way is to shorten up by focusing on Healer alone. Healer is Jung Hoo. He was trained as the modern Robin Hood by his late dad’s friend, Young Jae. At the beginning, he gave me that Simon Templar vibe by stealing and gathering info for his clients. One of his mission was to get Young Shin’s DNA. Before all this, he does all his work without putting much thought into it. But after meeting Young Shin and was told to keep eye on her more often, he started to put his work on the line more and more. As he falling for her, he also realized his fate with her is not just coincident but rather predicted since the beginning. He tried so hard to separate himself as Bong Soo and it took a toll on him. She herself started growing on him as well.
But what is the mutual connection between Jung Hoo and Young Shin? Their fathers were once best friends. The conspiracy between their dads and the friendship they had with Young Jae, Young Shin’s mom, her now step dad (which she still hasn’t figure it out) and Moon Ho could hold the key to Jung Hoo’s and Young Shin’s happiness. The story is kinda complicated and at times, I found myself feeling lost. But I am certain with the OTP story and to be honest, I only care for them. Just them *giggles*. They make me happy. They give me that warmth fuzzy tingling feeling. I like that. This show is highly rated and highly recommended by all. As for me, I’m watching it just for the OTP. So yeah… that. What is that means? I don’t really care for the story line to be honest. All I care is my OTP. Love love love!
