Kim Tae Hyeon is a surgeon with extraordinary skills. Unfortunately, faced with financial problems and trying to save his ailing sister and escape from debt collectors, he decides to perform illegal operations for the upper classes. Everything changes when he meets Han Yeo Jin, who lies in coma. After she suddenly awakes, he decides to help her take revenge on the people who put her in that condition.
Yong Pal is a show that starts of with a bang, taking its' intriguing premise all the way, before slowly languishing.
The first few episodes of the show are strong. We have great character development that plays alongside a fast paced narrative that keeps you on your toes. The directing is amazing and you always finish an episode wondering, "What's next?"
However, the show does fall victim to the strains of live-shooting and chaebol ministrations. The developments that kept it interesting fall to the wayside for corporate machinations that have little to do with the premise. And while many of the characters remain endearing or just entertaining, the key plot falls short.
That being said, it never fully becomes terrible or melodramatic as you would expect. It retains some of it's heart. Unfortunately that heart is a shadow of the premiere.
Watch as a fan of the actors, or because there are worst shows that could be seen.
I wasn't really going to watch this drama, I was not excited about the plot of another doctor as the trailer wasn't really informing or even the Synopsis didn't express how much the first episodes were really breath taking!
A friend recommended it strongly, and I'm glad she did, this drama was really exciting.
But like all of the dramas there was a little set-back at the middle with the exciting plot, when Yong Pali stopped being a Yong Pali! and the story want completely romantic!
I wasn't really into the love story but I'm glad that the actress is pretty, they are both eye-candies xD.
I liked Lee Chae Yeong at the beginning as she was smart and was helping out Kim Tae Hyeon, but then she turned pathetic after her husband died! She wasn't treating him well, when he was doing everything to get her attention and love, then she wanted to revenge him out of guilt after he died!
It's human of her to want everything she got when she was married but I thought she was better.
Our Evil Cheif Lee was amazing, I liked that he turned good, he has a cute face and his acting gives evilness a whole another meaning ;D
