76. The Innocent Man 세상 어디에도 없는 착한 남자 (2012) Korean

Song Joong Ki, Moon Chae Won, Park Si Yeon, Lee Kwang Soo

Drama Rating: 7/10     Neck Score: A

This is a heavy show.  Lots of hard things, but also lots of great actors and eye candy.  Song Joong Ki never ceases to amaze me, and neither does Moon Chae Won.  But seriously, this show is about a bunch of not nice people.  The point is that there is no such thing as a nice guy/innocent man.  Kang Ma Ru (Song Joong Ki) goes to prison for six years to cover up the manslaughter of his girlfriend Han Jae Jee (Park Si Yeon), only to get out and find that she's married a rich older man and had his child.  So, after becoming a bartender and gigolo, he decides to get revenge by seducing the older man's daughter Seo Eun Ji (Moon Chae Won).  Things of course get super messy.  Even with the whole brain surgery and memory loss type deals that get thrown in, this show is super well done.  Like I said, Moon Chae Won is on of my favorite actresses, and she is super great in this one.  However, its a very heavy drama and hard to watch because of the themes and all the depressing type things that are happening.  In fact the only bright spot of the show most of the time is Lee Kwang Soo, who plays Kang Ma Ru's best friend, and Lee Yu Bi, Ma Ru's little sister, who are probably the funniest part of the whole show.  But I think the show ended fairly well for how messed up everything gets, and it gets pretty messed up.  Still, it is a very good show, well written and executed.  Basically all these actors are pretty amazing.  Especially Song Joong Ki.
