Bubblegum plots and military, but oh, so good!
15 October 2016 | by sjim-98769See all my reviews

I would give it 12 out of 10 if possible. It was a shock to find a Korean TV series on Netflix. Haven't lived in Korea since 1967. Not like the people I recall, but it's easy to become attached to these characters. Plots are like the Snake River: 6" deep and a mile wide. The acting is often stilted and a major stretch, but at times the crew just bust out some great acting chops. Even though they all look like kids. It's cool hearing all the Korean and trying to catch words I understand. Too bad more scenes weren't shot in Korea to see what it looks like today. But the shots around Greece are beeeeeeutiful! Hard to keep up with acting and plot while reading text. Some characters are more like caricatures, especially the Captain. We have two Romeos and two Juliettes with a bunch of capable actors filling out the crew. Right down to the injured plant manager advising the doc to save the man with a forklift tine through his chest. Excellent cinematography, color, and site selections. They display the soldiers like the "hard ROK troops" I knew. But these have hearts and obvious feelings. Right down to the funny doc asking a nurse to delete his porn file on his laptop if he dies...which causes a middle age nurse to come unglued because files are dirty. Yes, a stretch. But the Korean mentality is unlike our American mentality in many ways. Must admit I love the Korean people (in general) today as much as I did when I lived there and served with the military. Too bad the North and South can't get along. This is one pretty series! My wife doesn't understand my attachment to the country, people, and my desire to see Korea again, but this series brings it all back. So well made. "Power in Unity!"
