Jang Tae San is a little gangster who lives off from managing a small pawnshop during the day and side activities at night. One day, his ex-girl friend, Seo In Hye, reaches him and reveals she has a daughter, Su Jin, and he is the father. Since she is rebuilding her life after their nasty break-up and is in a stable relationship with Im Seung Wu, detective and son of police chief, she doesn’t want Tae San involved in Su Jin’s life but she desperately needs him. Su Jin has an acute leukemia but no bone marrow donor can be found. As a last resort, In Hye turns to Tae San as surgery is the very last chance of survival for Su Jin. Surprisingly, Tae San is thrilled to have a daughter and is gladly willing to be a donor. However, two weeks before the scheduled day for surgery, Tae San’s boss, Mun Il Seok, pins on him the murder of Oh Min Suk, one of the pawnshop clients, who also happens to be a spy for prosecutor Pak Jae Kyeong and the witness of criminal activities between Il Seok and Senator Jo Seo Hee. As Tae San can’t be incarcerated, he escapes and does all he can to stay alive while Il Seok and the senator wants him dead and Jae Kyeong and Seung Wu do all they can to catch him.
That was a good action drama. I really like the story line and the way they mixed up past and present. Good make and special effects. Very good cast. Little Yi Chae Mi is so cute she steals the show. For those who don’t know Korean, Tae San means “big mountain” hence the little story Su Jin tells her mum. Very good cast. Good performance by Yi Jun Ki who is in almost every scene and has a very physical part… Also you probably have noticed excellent Kim Hye Ok (Dr Jin, Scent Of A Woman, Bad Guy) and Jo Mink Ki (Five Fingers, The Great Seer, Iljimae) as the villains. They made some technical mistakes like the mike in the frame episode 10 for Tae San birthday event. I always notice those… ha… Anyways, overall, it was really good and no loose end. I enjoyed this one.
