No mission too impossible for the Healer

We’ve already seen the brief teaser of Ji Chang-wook leaping tall buildings in a single bound, and now we at least get a bit more context for it with Healer’s first official teaser. And I’ll say, this show looks pretty snazzy.

The teaser starts out with Ji Chang-wook strolling into a building looking like a badass spy on a mission, who then asks, “You came to see the Healer?” Cue action sequence with Ji pulling out some swift fighting moves, and then running — through tunnels, along rooftops, staying one step ahead of whoever it is who’s got him in their sights. We know that he’ll play the titular Healer, a code name for his identity as an elite errand runner for hire — he’ll take any job for a high enough price, and boasts a perfect track record of successful missions.

We only get a tiny glimpse of Park Min-young and Yoo Ji-tae as the other two leads; both will play reporters, though on opposite ends of the career ladder. Park can only dream of becoming the star reporter that Yoo is; her resumé has nothing worth boasting, though she does brim with passion for the job.

In addition to the character stills that have just been released for the main trio, we also have some for the supporting cast, which features: Do Ji-won, playing Yoo Ji-tae’s sister-in-law who also has a connection to Park Min-young; Kim Mi-kyung as a consummate hacker and Ji Chang-wook’s partner, who can infiltrate any computer network in the nation; Woo Hee-jin as Yoo Ji-tae’s colleague, who advanced to the position of broadcast station director quickly and at a fairly young age; Park Sang-won as the president of a major newspaper and one of five friends, along with Yoo Ji-tae’s hyung, who was involved in a 1980 pirate radio broadcast; Oh Gwang-rok as another of the five friends and also Ji Chang-wook’s teacher; and Park Sang-myun as Park Min-young’s adoptive father, with whom she has a fun rapport, who pulls double-duty as a lawyer who specializes in police lawsuit cases who also runs a cafe on the side where he provides jobs for ex-convicts.

The teasers are stirring my hopes for Healer — not that I wasn’t looking forward to it already; I just wasn’t sure what to expect. I really do like the writer, Song Ji-nah, but even though she’s penned some excellent dramas, I’m always aware that nobody is infallible in dramaland (or anywhere, really). So while Faith was rather plodding, I know she can produce fun caper hijinks (Story of a Man) as well as history-tinged melodrama (Sandglass), which have me optimistic. As does that teaser, which just looks plain fun.

Healer will follow current Monday-Tuesday drama Cantabile Tomorrow and premieres on December 8.

Healer!!!
I'm actually still curious why this drama named "Healer", after the code-name of an errand boy. Why is his name Healer? Something related to healing? Can I have my own Healer?
*swoon over Ji Chang Wook*

City Hunter!!!

even the plot of five people involved in some conspiracy is similar to it...

does sound a bit similar to City Hunter, but the start is not as tragic ( I assume, although we might find out some secrets in the course of the show) and seems like it is not a consipiracy but something revolutionary and presumably positive?
and he doesnt seem to work in the name of revenge, he is just a rogue ninja.

if only the writer didn´t repeat plot devices over and over.... is all I ask.

I think the five friends not have conspiracy but they run illegal radio stations, but then something (bad) happens.
And the Healer doesn't have revenge motive, in fact he wants quiet life somewhere in South Pacific Island.

But it's true that the style looks a bit like City Hunter.

Am I the only one out in KDramaLand that DID NOT watch 'City Hunter?' Not a huge fan of Lee Min Ho, so I never jumped upon that juggernaut.

I'm foaming at the mouth (more than normal LOL) anticipating the interactions between this stellar cast. These are some heavy hitters involved in this production! Very interested to see how the early 1980's timeframe is handled - those were some tumultuous times in Korea back then. And Action Changwook is the cherry on top of the whipped cream icing on the cake. (Mmmmm.... cake.... )

Yeah yeah yeah, compare all you want. By Healer's finale episode, you all will be saying "Lee Min WHO?" :D

D-21 AND COUNTING!! *squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee*

if you haven´t even watched CH then how can YOU judge? Nope, I can guarantee you, one does not replace another.
unless there is a cameo from a certain handsome and heroic prosecutor.

Sweetie, *I* am not the one judging -- but in looking at all the comments here and in prior posts, it seems everyone else is. Such is the nature of the beast.

Oh girlllll (assuming you're a girl) - you NEED to watch City Hunter and be prepared to take off a couple hours from work/school/life to binge watch this one.

I know plenty of non-LMH fans who fell in love with him after this one.

hahahaha "Lee Min Who?" +1
Though I've been saying that since Personal Taste...He's so painfully wooden! (Note: I watched his dramas backwards starting with Faith.)

Anyways I'll be over here squeeing for Yoo Ji-tae.

@paroles I see the resemblance in the character('s clothing: dead ringer but in all black) but not the plot so no beef there.

Oh and PMY's new look is charming! Especially the second still when she's wearing the beanie!

Ditto to "painfully wooden". I could never sit through the drama despite it's nice, lighthearted storyline and awesome lead actress (Son Ye Jin) because of Lee Min Who.
