Story: The job of a night courier is not only dangerous and oftentimes highly illegal but also a place where one must be able to fight and stand up for himself in every situation. Strong and beast like Seo Jung Hoo (Ji Chang Wook), codename “Healer”, is the most famous night errand guy in Seoul and its neighbourhood who only accepts the toughest jobs with the highest payment. One day, popular broadcasting reporter Kim Moon Ho (Yoo Ji Tae) hires the “Healer” to find and protect a certain person for him. Seo Jung Hoo has to go undercover and disguises himself as clumsy and shy news reporter “Bong Soo” to find a job at a news company. There, he not only meets Kim Moon Ho himself but also a girl named Chae Young Shin (Park Min Young), an enthusiastic, strong willed and good hearted person with the goal to become the most famous broadcasting reporter in South Korea! And while Sung Hoo’s desperately trying to perfect his act as “Bong Soo” is his real business – the night courier job – slowly starting to draw its dingy circles arround him…
Own opinion: MUST WATCH!!! I can’t believe I’m saying this but… “Healer” really did what none other drama was able to do until now: It shoved my second favourite drama “Bad Guy” out of its place! O.o I mean: I LOVE “Bad Guy” since Kim Nam Gil is my favourite actor and the genre of melodramas basically my most beloved one… but “Healer”… really now… what’s this? What did you do to me?! XDD
Whoever created the story, whoever directed the scenes and whoever casted the actors and actresses for this one… I so want to thank them for doing their job perfectly perfect even to the tiniest detail! The action scenes are awesomely cool; the music harmonizes with every word spoken, every look given and every move made in such a breathtaking way that one wonders which genius might be behind this work of art; the acting by every main character is so intriguing that my feelings got all mixed up since I could hardly decide for whom I should root!
There’s not even one single person I disliked to the point of hate but so many lovable people that there was not one dull moment during the show. Wherever and at whomever the drama focused didn’t matter for I was excited at each and every story on its own! I watched “Healer” weeks ago but I’m still kind of enchanted by its perfectness… so impressive! ❤
Ji Chang Wook as “Seo Jung Hoo” a.k.a. “Bong Soo” did such an awesome performance by displaying so many different layers of a person in just one moment that I wondered how the hell he was still as unfamous as any other random actor in SK before “Healer”! Acting a cool, foreclosed and mysterious guy like Seo Jung Hoo who’s undercover acting as clumsy, warm hearted and friendly “Bong Soo” who, sometimes, has to go undercover as well and act like a sophisticated and realiable chaebol but still display certain character traits of Bong Soo must’ve been a really difficult task to do! Still, Ji Chang Wook mastered this job like he’s never done anything else and so great at that that I was really able to see all three “characters” he’s displaying in one of these awesome undercover-undercover-mission moments!
Plus I really love the way how randomly normal Seo Jung Hoo is at home! 😀 Normally, especially main guys in kdramas tend to be overly perfect and would walk around in a suit even when they bake or cook. Not so this time – the oh-so-cool Healer is not only eating simple microwave food (which doesn’t look healthy, by the way) but also lazily lying around in grey and worn out sweatpants with some comfortable shirts and simple slippers. XDD Sooo cute!
Park Min Young on the other hand was already one of the most beloved South Korean actresses even before “Healer” which’s why her doing a perfect job was to be expected. She’s infamous for always picking projects which later on turn out to be absolutely brilliant and successful; and so she did again with this one! I love her “Chae Young-Shin” in the drama because this girl is neither annoyingly weak nor uncertain of her feelings or unreasonably unforgiving. She’s simply to die for cute and funny! >.<
Rating: 10 / 10 – When something’s as perfect as “Healer” we should recognize it and give it the love it deserves! 😉
