Because I feel guilty… for not writing anything about this drama which I claimed to be one of my favorites and the best drama for year 2012. It’s one of those drama which I would eagerly watch all over again.
It will start airing on Philippine television via GMA channel starting July 22 on 10:15 PM. Click THIS to WATCH the TRAILER. Wala na akong tulugan nito. LOL. I’m sure I marathon this drama… I can’t stop talking about this to my friends, family and acquaintances. I even made sure my best-friend, who is not a KPop fan, to watch this drama. After watching this drama, I downloaded and watched A Werewolf Boy, Penny Pinchers and Tree With Deep Roots because I can’t get enough of Song Joong Ki. Before I continue talking about The Innocent Man, let me tell you that one of the best characters played by Joong Ki is in A Werewolf Boy. Why? just watch the movie. ^^
Kang Maru Song Joong Ki is the epitome of the man am looking for… of every woman perhaps. Just like as the the note in the GIF above says… Kang Maru is the innocent man that doesn’t exist in this world.
CASTS CHARACTER LINES:
Song Joong-ki as Kang Ma-ru
Moon Chae-won as Seo Eun-gi
Park Si-yeon as Han Jae-hee
SYNOPSIS / PLOT:
A man is betrayed by the woman he loves. To exact revenge, the man uses another woman who lost her memory….
Ma-Roo (Song Joong-Ki) is a promising medical student. He lives with his younger sister Cho-Ko (Lee Yoo-Bi), who suffers from poor health. Meanwhile, Jae-Hee (Park Si-Yeon) is a reporter at HBS broadcasting company. Both Ma-Roo and Jae-Hee come from poor family backgrounds, but try hard to achieve their dreams: Ma-Roo to become a doctor and Jae-Hee to become an anchorwoman.
One day, Ma-Roo goes home and finds his sister feverishly sick. While he puts socks on his ill sister, Ma-Roo receives a phone call from Jae-Hee. Jae-Hee sounds completely frantic and asks Ma-Roo to come over to save this man. Even though Ma-Roo’s sick sister begs him to not leave her, Ma-Roo rushes over to help Jae-Hee. When he arrives at the motel room, he finds Jae-Hee completely shaken and a dead man laying on the floor near her. Ma-Roo attempts to counsel Jae-Hee to turn herself in to the police. Appearing completely broken in spirit, Jae-Hee begins to call the police, but Ma-Roo hangs up the phone. He kisses Jae-Hee and then goes through the motel room to wipe away Jae-Hee’s fingerprints. Ma-Roo then tells Jae-Hee that he will take the blame and turn himself into the police.
Meanwhile, Eun-Gi (Moon Chae-Won) is the rich heiress a to family that owns the large corporation Taesan. She has been groomed to become the successor to the Taesan corporation and, consequently, shows very little emotions. When she pulls her car over in front of her home, Eun-Gi sees a woman hug her father. The woman hugging her father is Jae-Hee. In tears, Jae-Hee tells Eun-Gi “You have no idea what I did to protect you. What I just did to the man I care the most for in my life.”
6 years later, after serving a 5 year prison sentence, Ma-Roo travels to Aomori, Japan to retrieve money from a woman who swindled his friend Jae-Gil (Lee Kwang-Soo). Ma-Roo seduces the woman and retrieves the money stolen from his friend. At the same time, Eun-Gi and her now stepmother Jae-Hee are also in Aomori, Japan. Eun-Gi looks down upon her stepmother as nothing but a gold digger.
On the flight back to Korea, Ma-Roo waits to use the restroom. When the restroom door opens, Eun-Gi walks out and collapses onto Ma-Roo. Ma-Roo places Eun-Gi on the floor and walks back to his seat. Eun-Gi’s condition quickly worsens and the airplane asks if there is a doctor on the flight. Since nobody comes forward, Ma-Roo is compelled to help Eun-Gi. While administering aid to Eun-Gi, he asks for the woman’s guardian. At this time, Jae-Hee walks over to the scene and states that she is her mother. Jae-Hee also has a child next to her that is calling her mom.

Added bonus to this drama is the Running Man funniest guy Lee Gwang Soo play Kang Maru’s best-friend Jae-Gil.
My favorite scene in this drama is when Eun Gi was writing Kang Maru‘s name in the wall incorrectly. Then, Maru came up after hearing his name and write his name correctly on the wall. Shets.. I can repeat that whole scene over and over again. It’s like they’re drawn after being apart. You’ll know why I feel such when you watch the drama. ^^
