K-Drama Review: Oh My Geum Bi
K-Drama Review: Oh My Geum Bi. That maybe makes you feel in touch with drama!
“Oh My Geum Bi” tells the story of a conman (Oh Ji Ho) who finds himself caring for the ten years old daughter (Heo Jung Eun) he didn’t know he had, but she includes a rare disease referred to as childhood Alzheimer’s. He then meets a lonely woman (Park Jin Hee) who helps look after his daughter.
Wow. What a moving and heartfelt drama! Once I first read the premise for “Oh My Geum Bi”, I said there was no way for this drama to not be horribly depressing, and I’m not getting anywhere near it.
Then I saw the primary trailer, and something about it just drew me in. But I still wasn’t sold yet. Then the drama premiered, and also the reaction thereto from fans was quite positive with people saying such a large amount of wonderful things about it. So I made a decision to allow it to go. And I’m so glad I did!
Main Characters in “Oh My Geum Bi”
The true star of the drama is our little Geum Bi played by the oh-so-talented child actress Heo Jung Eun. And this girl is ridiculously adorable! She took on this weighty role and completely nailed it. Geum Bi could be a sassy girl who is robust, smart, and witty.
She is additionally mature beyond her year’s thanks to the difficult life she has had. Geum Bi really has nobody and only has herself to depend on. and he or she carries the burden of knowing she includes a deadly disease all by herself for awfully while.
Heo Jung Eun has the power to completely draw you in. She conveys different emotions so well, especially together with her very expressive eyes. And when she cries, she’s going to break your heart. This girl is unbelievably talented, and she or he just shines in “Oh My Geum Bi”.
I thought Oh Ji Ho fit the role of Mo Hwi Chul perfectly. He’s a conman who is extremely immature, irresponsible, and contains a temper. to mention he’s unhappy at the prospect of getting to worry for a baby is an irony.
He’s the sort of character who will be hard to love within the beginning thanks to how he treats Geum Bi. But as we peel back the layers of his character, we get a window into his pain and see that below that gruff exterior is someone who wants to be there for his daughter. Oh Ji Ho does well with loud, exaggerated characters like this, but he was also ready to convey Hwi Chul’s vulnerability.
We have Park Jin Hee as Go Kang Hee. She could be a lonely woman who is in need of healing herself. When Hwi Chul and Geum Bi inherit her life, she is ready to share her love with them and find hope again. I actually enjoyed her sweet and calming presence.
“Oh My Geum Bi” may be a truly beautiful drama. I’ve got to admit, I cried in every single episode. But it’s not always for the explanations you will be thinking. The drama is about a sick female child.
The Story of “Oh My Geum Bi”
At its core, it depicts the link between a father and a daughter. It’s not a simple relationship far and away. They bicker like the devil, but they also genuinely love one another, and also the two last such a moving journey of healing together.
And I was completely drawn into this relationship. The drama perfectly built up the conflicts and issues between the 2 so delivered completely moving and exquisite moments where the characters experienced growth. These are the days I cried. Watching a conman and a lonely child learn to become father and daughter was so moving.
But Geum Bi doesn’t just change the life of her father. She alters the lives of everyone around her. She warms the center of Kang Hee who is crammed with hurt from her past. Geum Bi gives her the prospect to like again.
Geum Bi also makes a difference within the lifetime of her biological mother, Joo Young (Oh Yoon Ah). Joo Young is selfish and irresponsible and only wants Geum Bi for the incorrect reasons. But Geum Bi gives her an opportunity to maximize and take responsibility for the primary time in her life.
Geum Bi even influences Hwi Chul’s friend turned enemy Chi Soo (Lee Ji Hoon). Chi Soo has spent his life feeling wronged by Hwi Chul and looking out for revenge. But a touch girl shows him that there’s more to life than living in hate.
I think the drama shined the most when it focused on Geum Bi and Hwi Chul’s relationship. Occasionally, it spent longer on a number of the opposite relationships than I’d have liked, but this was a really tiny love thing. Everyone that comes into contact with Geum Bi has their lives changed, so I am never bored with seeing people grow.
There’s also an awfully sweet romance between Hwi Chul and Kang Hee. It’s a minor subplot of the drama, but it delivers some very lovely moments between two people growing to like one another through their connection to Geum Bi and eventually becoming a family within the midst of very difficult circumstances.
But yes, Geum Bi’s disease plays an outsized part of the drama too, and I definitely shed some serious tears over what this girl and her family were facing. There’s no way around the indisputable fact that it’s truly sad to observe anyone suffer through a disease like this, but a toddler suffering through it’s just heartbreaking.
For those unsure on whether you ought to watch thanks to the topic matter, hopefully, this may facilitate your decision. The majority of the drama focuses more on the healing and relationships of those around Geum Bi. Her disease is discussed in most episodes, and she or he does experience minor symptoms in many of them, but it doesn’t desire the first part of the story.
Things don’t get unfortunate until a previous couple of episodes. That’s the purpose where we’ve got to face the fact of Geum Bi’s disease and what it does to her mind and body. And that I definitely cried through the majority of those episodes.
The drama doesn’t turn away from tackling serious issues like how children react to death. It also depicts how hard having to observe and take care of a dying love is for the family. Sometimes they’re drawn together, but other times, things become too difficult, and they become angry and knock at one another.
Things aren’t sugar-coated concerning the family or Geum Bi’s reaction to things furthermore because of the many difficult decisions they face regarding her treatment. It’s an incredibly difficult process for everybody involved.
Overall, “Oh My Geum Bi” excelled at hitting the correct emotional beats to completely warm my heart while watching the link of a father and daughter blossom. And this special female child transformed the lives of everyone around her.
She brought many smiles to my face, then again her harrowing journey through illness broke my heart. But even within the midst of sadness, there was always hope. This story was told so beautifully, and I’m glad I ended up giving it an opportunity.
