This 15-episode romantic drama has all the key ingredients of what I consider a good romantic Korean drama should be:
1) Beautiful leads
2) Good story line
3) Within 16-episodes
Cha Bong Sun is a police office under the care of a psychiatrist for having some issues. She comes from a broken family, her parents remarried, leaving her to fend for herself at a young age. She finds solace in being a fan of Pink Chicken, a pop singer, and in her job.
She meets Seo Jae Hee, a parking valet who is actually a handbag designer who owns the large department store opposite the police station. He is an orphan who was taken in by a mentor as a teenager and Cha finds them alike in their experience.
One day, a diamanté handbag was stolen from the store and was found in Jae Hee’s bag. The robbery was staged by Jae Hee’s business partner as a marketing ploy. Cha soon learns that Jae Hee is actually a millionaire and shares an apartment with the business partner, Park Hwa Young. Jae Hee had accidentally killed Hwa Young’s husband and had vowed to take care of her and her son. Hwa Young is jealous of Cha and decided to use Cha‘s step-sister to break off the romance.
Yoon Shi Yoon as Jae Hee, looks a tad too young for the role but I was soon charmed by him. (Although I must admit to being distracted by his too-white teeth and suspected plastic surgery looking face.) He is one actor who could cry on demand and has many scenes which we see tears streaming down.
Lee Ji Ah, an actress whom I liked in Beethoven’s Virus is cute and her relationship with her psychiatrist Park Tae Hwa provides the comedy relief. In one very funny scene, he hugs her to provide comfort yet did not let go after a long while. So she had to shrug him off with ‘er…I think that’s enough.’
I enjoyed this light drama and managed to finished all 15 episodes on demand within a week.
