Bokgu, the orphaned son of an abusive mobster, who idolizes the older brother who raised him. Believing that famous actress Cha Eunsuk abandoned his brother and caused the attempted suicide that left his brother hospitalized in a coma, Bokgu plots his revenge, landing a job as Eunsuk's bodyguard in order to try to seduce her, destroy her reputation and her career. Bokgu is bound by both guilt and affection to Han Dajung a childhood friend who pulled him from a fire and saved his life, but was burned and left with permanent scars. He stays with her in a life he despises, as strong-arm man for her loan shark business. As Bokgu exacts his revenge on Eunsuk, he is torn between his growing feelings for her and his sense of obligation to Dajung, between his duty to avenge his brother and the increasing uncertainty that his revenge is justified. His external actions contrast with his inner turmoil and, finally, he is filled with self-loathing at his revenge's successful result. Written by
Had very high hopes and it never disappointed me. Was absolutely blown away
I had extremely high hopes for this series as it's Rain's newest work and since I have seen "Full House" and "Sang Doo! Let's Go To School" which I thought were outstanding, I didn't expect anything less - in fact I expected it to be a life changing thing! Haha. I was worried that I was going to be disappointed because I had such high hopes but it amazed me and managed to blow me away.
Using non-verbal communication, you can tell from the cover that it's very serious, Rain's character is going to be very cold, and just from the title you know that the story is going to be exciting and epic.
Even though it's not the first time this kind of story has been done, it still seems so original because it seemed so fresh.
The thing I enjoyed the most was seeing a completely different side of Rain. If you're a Rain fan from such series as "Full House", don't expect to see the sweet and gentle Young-Jae you saw. Rain's character, Bok-Gu, is cold, UNBELIEVABLY smooth and has the attractive 'bad boy' attitude. After watching this, I was convinced that Rain can act any role because he just nailed this character. There is nothing worse than when you're watching a film or series and you don't care about the characters. You won't find that in this you will genuinely care about the characters, pity them, hate them, understand them, be frustrated with them and fall in love with them.
You also cannot ignore the incredible music used in this. The music alone touched me and broke my heart - it was so effective. A superb soundtrack.
Girls must watch this series for the excitement of the development of the 2 lovers' relationship and see what ending will come out of this completely against fate scenario. And most importantly, in all seriousness, no joke, Rain's handsomeness. The shots used for all the characters were done so unbelievably well I melted every time Rain came on screen.
Guys get ready for a new role model. There is also so much action in this it's more than a drama. Also, follow all the courting steps in this series and you will melt any girl's heart you desire.
All the cast's acting skills were generally extremely good but hands down to Rain who once again holds nothing back and always gives it his all.
The ending is beautiful and at first you may find it very unsatisfying because you needed more closure but I was thinking about this series for days (along with tears yes it was also very sad, heartbreaking and really touching) after I finished watching it and I found that I loved it more and more. It turns out to be such a brilliant story and it's a must see. Definitely another brilliant piece with Rain.
