Healer: A Romance Addicts Paradise

22 Feb

HealerI have no problem admitting I’m a romantic sap. I’m one of those people who likes the way romantic Kdramas focus in on handholding and longing glances and back hugs. It’s adorable. And I melt into a puddle at the sight of a passionate Kdrama kiss. So, I was in Kdrama heaven with Healer. Let’s start with the premise of the story.

A Brief Word About the Premise….

Ji Chang Wook is “Healer”, a night courier/errand boy who (for an appropriate price) will complete any task, as long as it’s not connected with murder. Healer is a superhero of sorts, so there is definitely some action in this show, as well as romance. Only a couple people know Healer’s real identity – his teacher, Ki Yeong Jae (played by Oh Gwang Rok) and his partner, a genius hacker he calls “ahjumma” (aka Kim Mi Kyung). However, there are organizations that are “out to get him” either for what he knows or for what he’s done. One of the tasks he is hired for puts him in contact with Chae Young Shin (played by Park Min Young), a young girl who is a tabloid reporter. This show tells the story of their relationship and how they discover their common past, including a mystery about their parents and the friends of their parents. Continue reading

Crazy For Kdrama Podcast Episode 19: Kdrama Take Down

18 Feb

It’s no surprise what we’re talking about during this episode — the takedown of Crazy. We laugh (and I… possibly cry) our way through the pretty crappy events of the last week, trying to shed light on what happened. But more than what happened, we talk about what it means for the future, and, most importantly, what you can do to protect yourselves (for the love of Mike, back up your works!). If you don’t have time to check out the podcast, or if podcasts are not your thing, Cherry has done a ton of research, and there are all sorts of informative links in the notes below. And as a reward, after blogging class we do talk about dramas and then end on a “Who Would You!”

Bet you guys didn’t think we could beat last week’s guest- and drama-packed doubleheader episode — and you’d be right! Just kidding. While Cherry and I were both sick and tired, we managed to chat for way longer than we had space for.

What A Difference A Teaser Make: Healer

22 Nov

Scrolling through my Instagram feed there he is again, Ji Chang Wook.

진짜 얼마안남있다!! #힐러 #둑흔둑흔 #떨림 #진짜 #진짜!!

A photo posted by 지창욱 (@jichangwook) on Nov 18, 2014 at 1:50am PST

He is, of course, smiling, which is good as that’s ow I like him  best. But sadly, seeing his smiling face always makes me a little blue. While I loved him in Smile Dong Hae, he has yet to be in another drama I wanted to sit through.

Well–except for Bachelors Vegetable Store. I sat through that entire pile of poo for him (and of course the other bachelors) the only reason I forgive him for those wasted hours is the fact that his part of the drama was almost really good. He can not be held responsible for the the depths of maudlin suckitude the other plots fell.

(If you didn’t catch that–don’t watch Bachelors Vegetable Store–friends don’t let friends watch bad kdramas.)

So back to his Instagram. Currently all his photos are of him in costume for his latest drama, Healer. Ho-hum, not another one–please don’t make me dislike you Ji Chang Wook.

I’d read a blurb as to what the drama was going to be about, and of course, I had no interest in it. But that changed when I saw the first official teaser:

Oh my freaking goodness–how awesome does this look?

My furor up, I went hunting for more information on the plot–and he’s not a lawyer who stumbles upon a wrong he has to uncover–he’s like this elite bad-ass messenger.

Wait. A Messenger? That can’t be totally right either, especially considering he has a hacker for a partner. Anyway it is the messenger who stumbles onto the big bad. Why does that one occupation make a difference in my interest level? Lord if I know. I think it may fall under the umbrella of my love for caper movies. Mr Messenger is cocky, quick, and has the ability to move just that side of the law.

The drama (from the teaser at least) looks awesome and something you usually see more in movies than dramas. It also looks like not only is Ji CHang Wook perfect for the role, he looks like he’s having a blast while doing it.

So thanks Ji Chang Wook, thanks for taking one for the team, for finally doing a drama I might actually watch.

Now if you could just have Goo Soo do the same, that’d be great. Thanks!
