starring Lee Joon Ki as Jang Tae San and Park Ha Sun as Seo In Hye and Lee Chae Mi as Seo Soo Jin (Tae San’s daughter).
Plot: Jang Tae San (Lee Joon Ki) escapes from an overturned police car after being falsely accused of murder. His daughter is sick with leukemia and only Tae San’s bone marrow matches hers. Tae San has to keep himself alive and uninfected until the surgery date. With the police and bad guys hot on his heels, will he be able to survive and prove his innocence? The drama spans exactly two weeks, and tells of Tae San’s desperate struggles to save his daughter who brings him courage to live on.
Zoom into characters: Tae San is a kind-hearted person who does not even reject eating his girlfriend’s favourite food even though he is allergic to it. Although he does not seem to be able to kill a fly, he suddenly forced his girlfriend into an abortion. In Hye is Tae San’s girlfriend who gives birth to his child without him knowing and raising her as a single parent. She cuts all ties with her parents as she does not want to go overseas with them. Soo Jin (Tae San’s daughter) is a bright and mature child who is determined to recover from her illness.
Lee Joon Ki is very good at acting in action and historical dramas! The daughter of Tae San is very cute and optimistic which makes the viewer hope that Tae San will survive the ordeal. Tae San helped many people as he seek refuge in those peoples’ houses like helping them catch chicken, repairing the burglar alarm, give birth… A murderer who does not seem like a murderer. Overcome by emotions, his love rival is actually a detective who does not believe he is being framed and makes his 2 weeks more difficult.
Looks like blood is thicker than water? Soo Jin seems to like Tae San more than his rival who treats her very well. One who is good will always do good things. It is difficult to change one’s nature. Bad guys will just continue to carry out evil deeds while good guys who did bad deeds are because they are facing difficulty. Whenever Tae San wants to give up, imaginary Soo Jin always appears and guides him along the way. A mouse can also bite a cat when it is desperate. This applies in this drama. The bad guys think that they can always make use of Tae San who is not cunning and intelligent. Little do they know that there are times when a person who is desperate and determine can also hinder their plans and escape from their clutches.
Why you should watch: It is a thriller and makes one excited to know what happens next. Every episode means one day past except the 1st and last episode. The action part of this drama is what makes it good! You can just skip the first episode when watching it. It is fun to watch when he destroys the bad guys’ plans.
