Chae Young Shin (Park Min Young) is a bright and cheerful girl  whose only dream is to be a real reporter, that’s what she shows her surroundings. She carries a heavy pain, which has left her traumatized. One day she runs into a weird man who attacks her, stole her bag and cut her fingernails.
That man is a night courier that goes by the code name Healer (Ji Chang Wook), which job is to do what people can’t do, the only thing he don’t do is hurt or kill people. His safety depends on the fact that no one knows who he is. He receives a job one day to find a certain person; little did he know that person would change his life forever. The one that hired him to do the job, was none other than the famous reporter at a major broadcasting company, Kim Mon Ho (Yoo Ji Tae). Together all three of them gets tangled into a mystery from the past, that will either break them or heal them.

I know if I write this review right after finishing the drama my opinion would be too biased (Ehm Ehm, I’m a big fan of Ji Chang Wook), but even after a few days I can’t seem to cool down, so here it goes; BEST DRAMA EVAAAAR! No, but serious, it was an amazing action romance which covered a mystery that connects two generations. I’m satisfied with it and the great cast! And the plot! The first episodes might leave you confused and with a feeling that you have overlooked an important clue, but fear not, they did it intentionally, because the more you watch pieces of the story slide into place and reveals an intriguing and very well thought off plot. I read an interview with the writer behind the story and she claims to have written this plot with only Ji Chang Wook on her mind as the main, how can I ever thank ├Żou!  He delivered a great performance that gave us a character that not only makes you want him to save you from the wicked people with his uber cool fighting, but you also want to hug and squeeze him. He got that talent to play a vulnerable and tormented incredibly well, making you feel his pain and loss as deeply as if it’s your own. I was actually satisfied with Park Min Young, I like her quirky character, she is not like a typical female lead (although she have a hard time acting out those crying scenes). Something I read about the drama really struck me, it’s that each character feels like their own drama, own story to tell. Healer managed to really present every character as complicated as real people, not an easy job to squeeze all that to a 20 episode drama, but they did it! As intriguing and interesting the main characters were, the characters from the past managed to be on the same level (Loved them!). The crown or the finish touch on the drama were definitely the OST, that background melody that comes every time Healer were fighting really sets the mood. Sigh… I can’t conclude this. I’m not over the fact it ended yet. Definitely a drama I’m going to watch again.
