This year has seen plenty of flame out K-dramas of the Go Big or Go Home variety that unfortunately went down the slink home in shame style. Big name stars with big budgets and/or big expectations such as My Lovely Girl or Tomorrow’s Cantabile or You’re All Surrounded, dramas that never lived up to the hype either in ratings or quality. The upcoming Healer on KBS is doing the reverse and delivering wave after wave of promising promotional materials with little fanfare. Leads Yoo Ji Tae, Ji Chang Wook, and Park Min Young all look soooooo good it’s like all three have been painted with the magic filter of awesome.
The first two teaser videos were fast paced and fascinating and the just released third teaser keeps the positive momentum going. Even better is learning new cool details about Ji Chang Wook’s Healer character who turns out is merely the technical brawn of the operation while perpetual gruff mom Kim Mi Kyung is the totally out-of-left-field pick as the computer whiz hacker that advises Ji Chang Wook’s character during all his operations. It’s going to be so awesome to watch a frizzy-haired ahjumma manning computer terminals while barking orders to the kickass Healer. Check out the English subbed third teaser below.
