Sometimes it seems like if you’ve seen one corruption drama, you’ve seen them all but I can’t help but be left on the edge of my seat whenever I watch Forest of Secrets. If you haven’t been watching this drama, I strongly encourage it as it feels timely but I also feel like the show allows the viewers to come to their own conclusions about the characters guilt or innocence.
Adding to my heavy load of K-Dramas that I’m currently watching, Forest of Secrets is another drama that I’ve been looking forward to. Yes, the cast is made up of veteran actors but the story somehow feels very timely as it deals with political corruption.
PART OF YOUR WORLD
After a series of encounters in Spain, a modern-day mermaid (Jun Ji Hyun) follows her love, Heo Joon Jae (Lee Min Ho), to Seoul to reunite with him. Unaware that she’s a mermaid, he is intrigued by the peculiar girl and names her Shim Chung. Despite traveling miles to be with him, the innocent Shim Chung is unaware that Joon Jae is skilled conman. He works with Jo Nam Doo (Lee Hee Joon), a veteran conman who taught Joon Jae the trade, and Tae Oh (Shin Won Ho), an expert hacker.
