I'm also still curious about Jung Hoo's relationship with his mother, I know he ended the relation, but I still can't believe he'd end something just like that either. Ride the roller coaster of America and am sure this will wake you up.... This may not be the best Korean drama ever played on TV but mind you it's one hell of excitement (I've watched it so many times) and the romance..story..will make you feel what love ( for anybody on that matter) can make to a person... Yes its my First time to be "obsessed with kdrama", and i just bought the director's cut too.... The bts, and there's even more unaired scenes thats why i bought the dvd for this.... I experienced new things which I've never done with the past dramas I've watched before. I love this drama so much I give it Ten Stars Rating. After watching the whole episodes, I found myself watching it over and over again. Ji chang wook is a really talented man i love him to moon and back. Their fashion, music-- i wish its already out in i-tunes, even the celphone ringtones!! Ji Chang Wook is good in choosing his project role. It's free to disagree with my comment but in terms of drama for me Kim Moon ho doesn't fit on my standard : D . Directors just get Yoo Ji-Tae as Kim moon ho because He resembles as Park Sang-Won as Kim moon sik . This is the first time I've watched a korean drama and had absolutely NO complaints about anything (acting, plot, cast, etc) the only thing I would've liked is that they showed us what happened to the Elder and Kim Moon Shik and all, Youngshin and her mom together, and of course Junghoo and Youngshin after everything that's happened BUUT that isn't the director's fault because apparently the ratings in SK were bad which I really don't get though like ???? And let's not forgot the OST and everyone's backstories. For example, we never really see all of the Elder and Kim Moon Shik's bad deeds being exposed. In one side, they have this great ideas, but they stuck with the rating isues. But i love Healer even more because of its sense of humour make this drama keep me watched it till the end. Because of the lack of time, they were not able to film them, so it was a bit rushed.
There's many aspects of the story that seem to still be open to me. :") I had lots of high expectations for this drama since it had such high ratings, and while there were a lot of good moments here and there, as well as really good characters and interesting plots, I felt there were many aspects missing. Not to spoil anything for anyone but while in the beginning there were many interesting scenes that got audience's attention, as the show progressed the meaning of these scenes seemed to be forgotten. I even bought a director's cut dvd which is my first time and is very very expensive but it's all worth it. Ji chang wook/healer is soo wonderfully awesome in here. Healer is the part 2 of "Sandglass" or "Hourglass" series that was a huge hit in the 1990's. I've seen PMY in many other roles and I can tell how much she's matured as an actress. I just can't get enough of JI Chang Wook's handsome face. JCW is the most sexiest hottest man in Korea ever so far. If you've seen City Hunter and loved it, this is going to bring back them feels~. Now, it's been nearly 20 hours since I finished it and I'm so gutted that I have nothing to look forward to now. Watch him in Healer and he will make u melt with his hotness. Apart after Empree Ki drama, this is another his recognition successful acting as Seo Junh Hoo. : D This Drama is not fully appreciated by Koreans because of it's Bad rating. Before i start watching this drama , i read all the comments on every page about this drama . Too good lmao it's taking me a long time to move on. This is an Action Drama, Romance, Comedy, packed all in one. The main lead actor and actress did a good job, they are nice to look at, both very passionate with their love, so much in love with each other, very real, very sincere! Moreover, I demand a second season, because I'd love to see my dream team H4 fight those who are behind the Elder. I've never watched Ji Chang Wook before, I skipped Empress Ki because it's too long for my preference. there is no words to describe how wonderful is #Healer . And, just like Cheon Song Yi have said in one scene, the audiences today are really mean sometimes. If you guys are able to read the Q&A with writer Song Ji Na, she explained some of the unfilled scenes.
So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections.
In the end I still really enjoyed the drama for sure, it just isn't my favorite. By the end everything seemed rushed and many questions were left open, nothing was really resolved except for the love lines, which was in all disappointing because the idea behind the drama and everything that led towards the end seemed good. I so loved Ji Changwook in this Healer is my all time favorite kdrama! His looks,the way he talks,the way he walks,the way his body moves; oh my God! Wish to see him again soon in an action-romantic kind of a drama like this. Though Healer only achieve less than 10% rating much less than the original 1st series (Sandglass received 40% viewer ratings) I still consider Healer a hit for the young generation of today. (though ji chang wook will be old by then and probably wont be the main character) the storyline is very nice and enjoyed the romance aspects of this drama. This is my first time watching JCW, and I think he's a young star to watch. I think that this drama has a more fulfilling ending than City Hunter. And i am telling them now, they MISSED this wonderful drama! Ji chang wook & park min young is the best couple ever! Ji Chang-Wook I fell in love with you in this movie.... I first saw you in Empress Ki but I was so engrossed with the King and Taltal that I didn't noticed you that much as the emperor... I highly recommended to watch this and you will never regret it. I womder why the rating is so low but there are so many positive feedback on it . So THANK YOU directors, writers, actors, and staff of Healer for giving us the best drama ever. and park min young you are just absolutely gorgeous! PMY she can act really,she has a nice smile, and when she cries it melts my heart. I've just seen him once in Running Man, and I remember him as an adorable good looking young man, with his shy and low profile personality. i wish Park Min Young would shave her sideburns at least though. excellent story with excellent cast and on the the top of all of these Beautiful Lovely main lead couple ji Chang Wook / Park Min Young . wish to see both of them soon in new project O if it is possible we want Healer2 . Because of the poor ratings, I guess KBS didn't even bother to extend it even for just one episode, which sucks.
I hope you can help me answer some of the confusion I had as well. Perfect cinematography, plot, acting, chemistry (NOT just the leads but all of them) and soundtrack! I wouldn't say it was a bad drama, or a waste of time to watch, but I'd skip it if you don't like to be left with more questions than answers. (Before was secret garden) i luckily found my fave type of kdrama. I especially liked his undercover scenes as Park Bong Soo because I think he has great comedic timing. Anyway, kudos to the writer,that I even research, with awesome profile.. If one dont like it, then maybe that person has bad personality/ sad upbringing hahaha ... The ratings it got definitely does not define its ability to capture you and get you hooked up. Almost perfect because there is no such thing as perfect! JCW is a handsome hottie, PMY is so cute & adorable. You have done well and I am excited to finish watching the Healer. After finishing all 20 episodes of this drama , i can now confirm you that Healer is a MUST WATCH DRAMA ! The ratings in SK may have been shit but just know it's a huge hit everywhere else. These 2 had such great chemistry on screen like it wasn't cliche and annoying! Right now i'm tryna get my friends to watch it so I can fan girl with them bc fangirling by urself is really hard??? a good cast..written and the best couple, I love them both Ji Chang Wook & Park Min Young..blessed found this drama, thank you..both of you be a couple again at next drama....saranghaee... I'm so surprised how he transformed into his character in Healer, which is amazing! I'm guessing she's naturally hairy so she can't help it but she should shave them shorter if she's going to be on TV. The script utself is already good, and it has been implemented very very well in every part on the screen's show. aeyo....i cannot recover watching healer....i watched 2 times but after i finish my mind can't recover...i m feeling sick..r great...
I also felt that compared to how strongly affected Myunghee was about the incident with her child at the beginning, it felt like how she reacted at finding out that her daughter was alive the whole time kind of underwhelming. The first episode captured my heart already and I must say that it's the BEST kdrama I've ever watched so far! The last episode was pretty good though, it had everything that I loved about the show. You may not like the lead cast..saying that it's boring???? I have became so obsessed with him that I find myself stuck on my IPhone all day everyday for the past month and a half. Im so glad i watched this accidentally now re-watching it over again, i even memorized some of the lines!! It may have similarities to other dramas but the difference is the flow and the chemistry... Became a fan of the two and also Yoo Ji Tae and everybody in the cast. Ji Chang Wook & Park Min Young do portrayed well in their role. especially JI CHANG WOOK OMG OMG OMG OMG he is the coolest and the handsome actor that i ever saw... So I just finished watching healer last nigt and the only word that comes to mind is "amazing". Park Min Young's character here was charming and cute! Some other stupid main female lead, if having seen misleading information about her lover's father who possibly killed hers, would definitely have dragged out the drama and anger and silent treatment to 3-4 episodes.
Yes she cried about it, but in all honesty if a mother that had loss of control whenever her child was mentioned suddenly seemed fine at finding out her child was there the whole time, it kind of seems fake. I just can't think of anything that will excite you... I even searched for writer's interview, and i was so impressed..... (Before was secret garden) i just luckily found my type of kdrama. Just this June 2015, I discovered this Drama "Healer"by listening to MLTR song "Eternal Love" on You Tube. JCW caught my eyes instantly cuz he is Super Handsome. As soon as I learned that this handsome guy is in a Drama, I then decided to watch it. LOVE all the sweet scenes of these healer couple as they make all fans breathtaking. The cast was really good and the actors really played their parts well! Maybe I gonna change my idol into Ji Chang Wook much but he is so tanlent and very handsome_A ideal boy which I dreamed. and everytime Ji chang wook smile or sometimes smirk! But Yeong Shin absolutely exceeded my expectations and I love her for that. can I just say that he is absolutely the most perfect boyfriend/lover/husband?! Anyway, romantic gushing aside, I think that some parts of the drama could have definitely been wrapped up a bit better. It's really frustrated situation, especially for film makers and writers. And she has got really great chemistry with JCW, they were cute together and really worthed as the best couple of the year :) Those who are all wondering whatever happened to the other characters, the writer has a plan for all of them.
It doesn't have to show those bad guys died or something... and also remember this is focused on romance, only means love wins and prevails no matter how chaotic your surroundings are..... And as for Myunghee who just know about Youngshin being her daughter, the scene was to vague and most viewers expected a lot of crying and compensating scenes, but I guess the director thought it'll be so draggy and left us imaging that scene, because as we all think they'd really cry their hearts out. -but he was not-i cried (with PMY x D)for nothing). I like it how they connect the past to present, to parents to children. This was a classic masterpiece, my all time favorite!! Like the 'new' dramas, there are good parts and sad parts BUT they don't make me cry a bucket like healer did, they don't make me have goosebumps like healer did, AND they didn't make me want to marry the lead male like healer did with Ji Chang Wook... Love Ji chang-wank the guy is awesome and active aslo park min young. Wish to see ji chang wank in more drama or main role. Im taking notes of their romantic lines, soooo love it.... seriously, healer as far more in common with superman than pinocchio. we need more dramas as good as this, or even better. @asdss please dont compare this amazing drama with heirs or city hunter. I guess the lead actor and actress would not win Best Couple Award if there are no chemistry, right? like when Choi Myung Hee discovers that young shin is her daughter!
