Kang Goo’s Story Korean Drama Review

Kang Goo's Story Korean Drama - Lee Dong Wook and Park Joo Mi

Kang Goo’s Story is a two episode mini drama about a man named Kyung Tae (Lee Dong Wook) who is a rough around the edges gangster.  After his best friend is killed, Kyung Tae returns to the man’s hometown to take care of his ill sister, Moon Sook (Park Joo Mi), and her son, Kang Goo (Shin Dong Woo).

Kang Goo’s Story is like watching a movie with a drama feel.  Two episodes is not a lot of time to work with, but it packed a lot into those two hours.

It took just over half of the first episode for me to really get in to the story, but then I was in.  Although Kyung Tae is there because of guilt he feels towards his deceased best friend, he soon finds himself genuinely falling in love with Moon Sook.  He also grows fond of her son and the entire town.

He struggles to balance his gangster ways with the simple life he longs for with Moon Sook.  But their love story blossoms beautifully, and we see the toll her illness has on both of them.

Kang Goo’s story had gorgeous visuals throughout, with music to tug at your heart.  The love story is pure and simple, but completely moving.  I experienced a wide range of emotions, and I recommend having a box of tissues handy for this lovely little drama.

    Thanks for this review….I didn’t even hear of this..probably because it was a drama special. Looks like a tear-jerker to me…does it have a sad ending?

      For the most part yes, but it’s not all sad. It definitely leaves a sense of hope and a little bit of happiness. I figured it would be sad, so I tried to brace myself going in, lol. It was a nice little drama though, and I especially enjoyed Lee Dong Wook.
