Innocent man (2012) 无辜者
Enjoyment: 8/10 Pace: 6/10 No. of times I watched it: 1
starring Song Joong Ki as Kang Ma Roo and Moon Chae Won as Seo Eun Gi.
Plot: Ma Roo was such a brilliant doctor yet cannot be one as he went to jail as a murderer for his girlfriend, Jae Hee (Park Si-yeon). He sacrificed his well being for his girlfriend only to be dumped by her for a rich man. He approaches Seo Eun Gi (Moon Chae Won), the daughter of the chaebol group executive in order to execute his revenge yet falls in love with her. One day, Eun Gi who loves him finds out his motives in getting close to her and decided to hit him with a car. He did not dodge. After the car accident, Eun Gi has to learn to read and write again and Ma Roo may die if he does not receive treatment. They met again as Eun Gi who has no recollection of the past finds Ma Roo who is in her photographs and Ma Roo decides to help her take over the company. When she knows of her past, what will be her reaction?
Ma Roo even places his girlfriend as a priority as compared to his sister, Choco. He did not choose to save his sister when she was very ill and choose to save his girlfriend. Not sure why he did that though. The betrayal must be very painful. If not for Jae Hee, he would have saved many people as a doctor. What a waste! Happy that Eun Gi treats his step brother well at the end of the drama. After all, he does no wrong. It is his mother that does all the wrong doings.
I learn that we should treasure our lives. Song Joong Ki plays the bad guy for the 1st time? When one acts evil, the looks change too. I did not believe that but I have come to believe it. There is no such thing as a evil looks, just that when one do evil deed, one will seem evil. It is sad to see that they love each other yet cannot enjoy moments together truly. When one loves the other, the other has ulterior motive. When one loves the other, the other finds out about the past and hates him. Quite a lot of kissing scenes especially before the car accident.
