# k-drama review # recommendation

Yong Pal

Assalamualaikum, good day everyone. I hope you are staying strong until this situation solved. I know and I understand that it was a hard time for everyone but there was nothing we can do but to comply with the government, and of course don't forget to make du'a ! Anyway, I feels like it's been so long since I wrote the last review and I don't really know how this review would turn out, so bear with me ! This is a drama from few years back and it's great to fill in your days.

Title : Yong Palie / Yong Pal
Episodes : 18 episodes
Genre : Medical, Drama
Writer : Jang Hyuk Rin
Network : SBS
Cast : Joo Won, Kim Tae Hee
Plot :

Kim Tae Hyun is a third year resident at Hanshin Hospital. To bear the cost of medication of his sick younger sister, he worked with a loan shark to make house call for the gangsters. He then rose in rank at the hospital and was placed at the twelve floor where the VIPs treated at. He then caught in the middle of the conspiracy of the hospital owners when he decided to help Han Yeo Jin woke up from her forced comatose state.


Honestly, this is my first time watching Kim Tae Hee works. As far as I remember, I had never watched movies or dramas that starred in, and I don't even know why. And maybe that was why I mistook her for Kim Ji Won. 

Back to the drama, at first in was intense because of Kim Tae Hyun involvement in illegal house call. I love the action scenes (oh please, I am a sucker for this!). Then, there was Han Yeo Jin who was trapped in her body and confined because of her brother. I personally love the concept of betrayal.  
Is it bad that I kind of feel sorry to her brother ? Nah ? When she finally saved from her nightmare, things are going a little slow and almost got me bored. There was so much unnecessary repeated scenes from the past and it annoys me so much. 

The elements of surprises and plot twist was close to none which kind of sucks because I keep anticipating that. Every single thing that could be a twist was not really a twist, at least for me it's not. They had a good concept but the story line aren't really great. If they had twist the plot a little more, it definitely would be my favorite. 

If you can't walk to the throne, you can't sit on the throne either. - Yong Pal / Kim Tae Hyun

The romance between Kim Tae Hyun and Han Yeo Jin is great. I definitely could feel the love they had for each other. But I kind of get annoyed with Yeo Jin who still wanted to take revenge towards her brother in stead of let things go. It would be easier for them if Yeo Jin let things go. But then it is great that Tae Hyun had the 'patient and understanding' kind of characters. They were made for one another. No doubt.

The ending for the drama was a duh. Like, literally. Well, first, I felt like it was rushed, which a big loss for the plot, definitely could be better than that  and there was so much unanswered question going on at the end. I mean, doesn't an ending supposed to be the end for every character ? But this drama had me question the end for every single character, including the main. Yeah, sucks.
