I miss you (2012) 想你
Genre: Melodrama, Mystery
Enjoyment: 8/10 Pace: 7/10 No. of times I watched it: 1
Tragic start but good ending for the lead characters. It was too cruel for me to watch the separation of the lead couple so I just read about what happened. Hyung Joon plays a important role in the later part of the drama and is a character I feel sorry for. Hyung Joon is actually Jung Woo’s step uncle even though he is younger than Jung Woo. From young, he is forcefully separated from his mother as Jung Woo’s father prevents him from inheriting a huge fortune. He even becomes physically disabled as a result. He does no wrong yet misfortunes keeps befalling him. In the end, he loses everything even his mother and Soo Yeon.
People usually call this a second lead syndrome? The second lead leaves a deeper impression on me. He does not feel love since young so he also does not know how to feel compassionate. He has become a murderer since young age and it seems a second nature to him. Is it really because of his misfortune that he turns out this way? Will he be better if he was born in a family full of love? It is a waste that he places revenge as the priority.
Young Jung Woo and Soo Yeon make a sweet couple. Jung Woo teaches Soo Yeon a hand signal that can help her forget all her misfortunes. Learnt that bad memories should not be remembered and we should work towards creating good memories. I can feel how much joy Jung Woo brings to Soo Yeon’s life, giving her company and sharing her sorrow such as being an outcast with her: having rubbish thrown at them. While rain may not mean a good sign, rain in this drama helps Jung Woo and Soo Yeon meet and helps them reunite.
