Healer Episode 1
I’m already on to the latest episode of this drama (episode 14) as I write this. If you’re just about starting, be prepared to be swept off of your feet because Ji Chang Wook delivers! At first, it’s vaguely reminiscent to City Hunter. But the story line and the chemistry between the leads make this an even more top-notch drama than City Hunter.
Ji Chang Wook plays the role of Seo Jung Hoo, a shady character who lives in an abandoned building and whose only company is a faceless ahjumma who contacts him regularly when there are new contracts.
The ahjumma is Jo Min Ja, a reclusive old lady who has very impressive hacking skills. She receives and accepts odd jobs for Jung Hoo, who goes by the code name Healer. As a night courier, he does shady, sometimes illegal jobs and gets paid handsomely for it.
And what would you expect a night courier to wear than an all-black ensemble? And as all black attires go, Jung Hoo does it so well – the leather jacket, the hat and even the glasses that frosts over at the click of a button. He makes it look so stylish though.

Their first job of the month is to safely transport a guy named Go Sung Chul. But when he got to the train station, Sung Chul is also being hunted by another team.
Park Min Young plays the role of Chae Young Shin, a reporter from Sunday News. Her job is to stalk famous people just to get news-worthy reports.
As befits her job, Chae Young Shin dresses mostly for comfort. Her idea of a comfortable work outfit consists of a leather jacket and scarf around her neck.
She quickly sheds off the leather jacket though to disguise herself as a delivery girl.
While stalking a celebrity, Chae Young Shin stumbled upon Bae Sang Soo, who was on the phone talking to someone about Healer. Upon hearing Healer’s name, Young Shin’s curiosity was picked. She crept over to the guy’s car and stole the photo of Healer he dumped there.

Yoo Ji Tae plays the role of Kim Moon Ho, a reporter from a big television network who is known for his impartiality. Even against the wishes of his home network, he still went to see a worker who got injured.
Back to Jung Hoo, he’s busy trying to escape Sang Soo’s men, who were also out to get Go Sung Chul. Min Ja hacked into the train’s network and Jung Hoo got Sung Chul out of there.
Chae Young Shin has a foster father, Chi Soo. From the looks of it, they seem to be well off.

There’s another character coming into play – Choi Myung Hee. She’s celebrating the birthday of her daughter, who passed away when she was seven.
Myung Hee reminisces the past. She was one of five friends. One of the guys was her husband. He also died before her daughter. After that, it was one her husband’s friends, Moon Sik who took care of her and eventually became her second husband.
Jung Hoo may look fit but his eating habits are far from healthy. He loves to order chicken and gobbles them almost every day. While eating, he receives another call from Min Ja ahjumma saying she got another contract.
The new job is to look for a woman named Chae Young Shin and get a credible sample DNA from her.
