When a Man Falls in Love
One of my favourite Korean dramas this year...It has other titles : When a Man Loves / Man in Love but basically I love the story line whereby the main character has to face some challenges in his life in order to live in happiness and to be loved by others.
Although the plot - love triangle is being used (like other dramas) but this time around Seo Mi Do (Shin Se Kyung) was brave enough to make bold decision of who she should choose instead of being pushed by anybody else in the family.
Han Tae Sang (Song Seung Heon), on the other hand who was a former gangster, had to endure with so many incidents in his life - starting when his mother left him (with another man - leaving behind her husband and the wounded Tae Sang) many years ago and the worst part was, she brought Han Tae Min (Kim Seo Kyung) along with her. Desperate to search for his little brother somehow lead him to a dreadful life journey.
Baek Sung Jo (Chae Jun Ahn) was the other woman in Tae Sang's life. She loved Tae Sang so much and she was willing to do what ever it takes just to make sure Tae Sang is happy. This can be seen when she withdrew herself on their wedding day just to save Tae Sang's life...
Jae Hee (Yun Woo Jin) was somehow involved in Tae Sang's life when he seduced Seo Mi Do and the triangle love began to take place. The story is interesting for it has so many elements in it and the way the actors and actress put themselves in the shoes of each character creates a really good mood for me.
