Reactions and Reviews
What is healer 2021?
What does Healer 2021 mean?
I’m really liking Healer 2021! It’s a little too early to tell whether it will become a long-running drama like Secrets and Lies or Secret Garden, but it’s already promising to be a great drama! Why am I so happy about this? Well, let’s start off by getting to know the writer, Song Ji-na.
Song Ji-na is a writer from the publishing company, HarperVoyager. For a long time she wrote for dramas such as When a Woman Falls in Love, Door to Door, and Finding Mr. Right. On May 26, 2014, her drama The Woman Who Lives Alone was announced to be renewed. Unfortunately, she got sick and could no longer take part in the preparation. So she sat and waited for 4 months for this drama to air.
SBS is premiering Healer 2021 this weekend! I don’t know what to expect from this supernatural thriller and honestly, I don’t really care too much either.
However, Healer 2021 is my first Korean drama I’ve ever watched, and it’s a real eye-opener for me. I think it will be hard for me to watch SBS dramas now after watching this.
First of all, I’ve always been curious about Korean supernatural and fantasy dramas since I saw the first One Piece episode when I was 15-years-old. And when I read the synopsis for Healer 2021, I figured I would probably like it as it focuses more on the supernatural and less on the romantic angle.
At the same time, I’m kind of scared of supernatural dramas since I’ve already watched so many of them.
