Cha Mi Rae is a doctor who is used to giving tragic diagnoses to her patients and does so in a calculated and cold manner. However, one day she discovers that she herself has cancer and has only twelve months left to live. She decides to invest the time that she has left to find her daughter a new guardian, who would take care of her when she's not there any longer. Her only hope turns out to be Han Yeol, a former baseball player, who parted ways with her on bad terms in the past. Will she have enough time to turn him into a perfect father?
Super Daddy Yeol, on paper, sounds like an interesting mix of melo with a heart lifting comedy. There`s the terminal illness , the ex lovers reuniting, the bad split. But there`s also a heartwarming family dynamics, a bumbling hero trying to do his best and a sassy kid not afraid to speak her mind. The results, however, are mixed.
The show starts of strong. We have Mi Rae, a smart woman whose clearly able to handle herself and her daughter well. Neither females are weak, which is a bonus, with a loving mother-daughter relationship that makes for a great foundation. And Yeol is a complicated man whose well-meaning. Watching the criss-crossing interactions is entertaining when no one clearly knows who the other is.
Unfortunately things start heading spiraling with the terminal diagnosis. Mi Rae, who was level headed and calm, starts become slightly irrational. Sa Rang, who was spunky becomes supremely bratty and Yeol starts losing his shine in ways that don`t bode well for character development.
The plot also spins its`wheels for quite some time. However, the family interactions and dynamics remain heartwarming and the comedy solid.
The lost potential is saddening but the show definitely could have been worse.
