Jang Dong Gun who saw this talent as a lawyer wished to hire him as his partner.  He asked to study properly through law school and come to the office.  Park Hyung Sik said that he took the exam for someone else and choose a wrong answer in order to avoid the perfect score.  Jang Dong Gun hired him as the lawyer and his partner finally by giving him the chance to shine.

The next day Park Hyung Sik came to the office and Jang Dong Gun who entered the office later said to Park Hyung Sik to leave the office as he got fired.  The episode ended just like that and got me curious about what happened next.

Suits (슈츠) K-Drama Reviews

I got interested in this drama since it is a remake of a popular American Series.  Overall first half of the episode makes me think about what the drama is about but the second half of the episode gives the clear idea of the drama.

This drama is good and got my attention even though it is the first episode.  In most dramas, the first episode won’t be a good one.  And in some drama first episode will be a good one and the further episode will be bad.  I wonder is will this drama be good one till the end.

Here two charismatic characters get together to solve the cases.  The Park Hyung Sik memory is the main attraction in the first episode.  He attracted and amazed everyone with his super good memory power and makes us wonder if we have that kind of memory power we don’t have to study hard for the exams.  Just reading will give us the perfect score.

If I have that kind of memory power I would easily pass the government exam and reach the higher post in no time.  Do you guys wish to have a superpower to make your life easier?

From the look of the first episode, I am giving a rating of 8/10 for this drama.  The drama was good but it hasn’t amazed me like Descendants of the Sun, or My Love form the Star.

  1. Well done with your review! I may look at this one down the track.

    As such, I have really enjoyed the American Suits up until Season 7. However, I have found Season 7 just a bit frustrating.

    As for a superpower to make my life easier, being able to move through time would be handy. Even being able to use lightning bolts would be of benefit -sometimes some people just need to have that subtle reminder regarding their bad behaviour.

    In terms of memory, it’s a matter of perspective. Exams only test a certain aspect of a person’s learning and understanding. I was a terrible undergraduate student and very bad at exams, but a very good post graduate student later in life. I didn’t do well re the government exams where I am from, but I still went on to have a very successful government career (I worked my way from the bottom to the top). If I can, anyone can.

    Descendants of the Sun and My Love From Another Star are great shows. Two shows that are turning out to be very special are Something in the Rain and My Husband Oh Jak Doo.
