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?
