Gang Min Ho pursues only one goal: The ruthless investment director wants nothing more than to destroy HERMIA, the company his uncle had stolen from his father after the latter passed away, which drove Min Ho's mother into committing suicide. But the tough man hasn't much time left himself, as the same illness which cost his father's life threatens to end his own in the near future.
Kim Sun Jeong, one of the best secretaries at HERMIA, is preparing to marry her childhood friend and long time boyfriend, detective Ma Dong Uk, when her happiness is brutally destroyed: Dong Uk dies in a hit and run accident, leaving his fiancée with nothing but memories.
When Min Ho's heart eventually fails him, he is lucky enough to get a heart transplant, the donor being no one else than the late Dong Uk. Soon, the cruel investment director and the strict secretary are connected by more than what they assume, as Ma Dong Uk's heart is now beating strongly in Gang Min Ho's chest.
Falling for Innocence has it's peaks and downsides. Well acted with a great leading couple, the show does have some gaping plot holes. However, it's still an entertaining watch.
We start off with a male lead that's a large jerk and quickly raises the question of how we'll come to even remotely like him. That changes quickly following his heart transplant. And while the change is for the better (there's no where else to go frankly), the show never really manages to make the transition smooth. The lines between new and old are really blurry, and sometimes used as a jump rope. That being said, watching him fall for the female lead is a blast and more than makes up for the other issues.
While the idea of cell memory and taking on someone else's personality is interesting, the plot never manages to make the most of the story. Questions are left unanswered and some of the characterizations could use fleshing out. But when the characters are winning, they manage to knock it out of the ballpark and make up for the lack of strength of the others.
An enjoyable watch, it could be better but it could also be worse.
