Fate, destiny, I believe in them. If they did not exist, why would words for them exist?

Whether someone misunderstands or understands me, it did not matter to me at all. I was like that.

Enjoyment: 10/10 Pace: 9/10 No. of times I watched it: 2
Plot: Kim Moon Ho (Yoo Ji Tae) is a popular reporter at a major broadcasting company run by his older brother. As he tries all ways to make truth come to light, he helps people who feel wronged. He kept silent about his brother’s bad deeds towards his brother’s very own friends due to his lack of power. With people on his side and the power of media, he finally managed to do something about it. Meanwhile, with the help of Kim Moon Ho, internet reporter Chae Young Shin (Park Min Young) and Seo Jung Hoo (Ji Chang Wook), known as “Healer,” grow into real reporters.
Zoom into characters: Seo Jung Hoo, code name Healer, is a night errand guy who does any work except murder as long as the payment is sufficient. His dream is to get an uninhabited island in South Pacific (if I did not remember wrongly) and live there until he meets bold and sunny Young Shin. In order to find out more about Young Shin as requested by his client (Moon Ho), he stages as a coward reporter in Someday News. Despite being framed as a murderer and suspected to be near Young Shin, he continues to be around Young Shin on impulse. Young Shin was adopted by a gangster+lawyer after being physically abused by her first adoptive parent. Despite having breathing problems whenever she witnesses violence, she is not afraid to stand up against the bad guys and is protective towards “chicken-hearted” Jung Hoo. She calls herself a veteran entertainment reporter until she gets the chance to learn from her idol, Moon Ho.
