I’m currently diggin’ Healer. Who’s with me?
I went into this drama without any expectation. I knew it would be good because Song Ji Na wrote it but I didn’t expect it would be THIS good (two thumbs up). Who’s Song Ji Na? She’s the brilliant Korean writer that wrote Sandglass and my favorite Faith drama.
I’ve seen Ji Chang Wook previously in Smile Again – not really impressed with his acting there and am not really a fan of Park Min Young. While I’ve never watched any of Yoo Ji Tae dramas. BUT right now I’m really loving the three of them. They make a very nice trio.
For me, Healer is about finding the truth, finding the lost one and finding your one true love along the way. It’s sweet and thrilling once you put on the Healer’s seat belt. Perfect acting by Ji Chang Wook, Park Min Young and Yoo Ji Tae. Bravo.
Synopsis from KBS World:
