Lee Hyeong-min (이형민)

Screenplay by:
Lee Kyeong-hee (이경희)

Cha Sang-doo : Rain (비)

What's popping:

Sang-doo is Rain's debut in the Korean drama scene. I think he did a very good job in Sang-doo. He looks like he was having so much fun playing Sang-doo and he takes you through the journey of Sang-doo's life effortlessly. It is fun to watch.

The plot:

  • Cha Sang-doo (Rain) and Chae Eun-hwan (Kong Hyo-jin) were high-school sweethearts. Although they were the best of friends and spent lots of time together in the beautiful sea-side town of Namhae, they did not confess their love for each other.
  • In a series of tragic events, they were torn apart from each other without a chance to say good-bye.

  • Sang-doo had to go to juvenile prison and his foster parents abandoned him.

  • Fast forward 10 years later, in the bustling city of Seoul...Sang-doo is now a gigolo. He does this to support his seven-year old daughter Cha Bo-ri, who is battling with cancer.

  • One day, he bumps into Eun-hwan by accident (accident is the right word – because he nearly kills her). She is now engaged to a cute, well respected doctor (played by Lee Dong-gun) who happens to be treating little Bo-ri.

  • Sang-doo realizes he still loves Eun-hwan and is determined to win back her love. He becomes a security guard at the school she teaches in, and later becomes a student there – just to be close to her.

  • Who will Eun-hwan choose? Her first love or Mr Hot-Shot, kind-hearted – treat me like a tree, doctor?

the story was an art
the cast was great
funny & light yet very moving

my favorite quote here is..
"i try to drown my self into the river 100 of times, I try to drink poison too 100 of times and tried to cut myself 100 of times yet there are always 2 person who hold me whenever I think of that, those are Bori and Eun hwan and for that they save my life more than 900 times. For me that is love" - Sang doo

Really one of the best i've seen!
Two Thumbs up for this drama :-)

After hearing so much praise for Full House I was really disappointed after seeing it. I didn't think much of Rain as an actor. But then I stumbled onto Sangdoo and my thinking changed. He did a really good job in this drama. I wish he could have done the same in Full House- although it was a very popular series, I think his performance in Sangdoo was 10x better.
