The Master of Revenge 마스터-국수의 신 (2016) – K-DRAMA REVIEW


Firstly, let’s talk about the cinematography. The camera movements make you feel like you’re watching a movie at the cinema, instead of a drama through your computer screen. The colours and background music makes you feel tense, as everything is set for a well prepared production.  

And that’s exactly what it is. The story in itself has an amazing plot, the main characters are set up well, with a interesting backstory. The first time I saw Cheon Jeong Myeong 천정명 acting was in Glory Jane (one of my first ever dramas in 2013),  alongside Park Min Young박민영 (Healer); and I’ve only seen him in one other drama (Heart to Heart). I was very excited to see what he would bring to the table. I’m definitely pleased with his acting so far, even though his full potential hasn’t shined through yet. Baro 바로 (B1A4 비원에이포) is definitely a talented idol/actor, and has proven again and again that he can be very versatile. He plays a ‘Catch Me If You Can’ kind of role; the character goes by the  name of Kim Gil Do 김길도.  He becomes whoever he needs to be to achieve his own greedy goals. He grows up with an abusive father who beats him whenever he lies and steals. He ends  up on the wanted list for killing someone, and then ends up forging a new identity for himself. His history of bad behaviour carries on in unimaginable ways.

The cast is an amazing one if I do say so myself, and everyone fits so perfectly! The story is sad, eventful and just perfect. However one thing I didn’t like is all the time skipping! Sometimes it’s nice to see the growth of characters instead of seeing the final result. But hey, we can get past that! Spoiler ahead! One day Kim Gil Do 길도 knocks on the door of a man named Ha Jung Tae 하 중 태 who spends most of his time perfecting his buckwheat noodle recipe. The owner of the house is completely oblivious of what his guest has done, and he invites Gil Do 길도 into his home, none the wiser. Gil Do 길도learns from him and becomes excited at the possibility that he might actually be good at something. He asks Jung Tae 중 태 to start making a business out of his talent, but he refuses and tells him that’s not what he is after. After a while Jung Tae 중 태learns of Gil Do’s 길도 identity and becomes anxious around him; he acts as if  he knows nothing and he carries on as usual. Gil Do 길도 however knows everything and decides to end the life of Jung Tae 하 중. He takes his identity and proclaims the recipe to be his own. He finally releases his recipe and learns that a business man wants to hire a man to help his business grow…
