Despite the fact that things just never seem to go his way, Sang Ha always manages to find a reason to smile. A member of the school track team, Sang Ha loves to run, but distance has never really been his thing. For Sang Ha, sprinting is what brings him the most joy. Jin Won, on the other hand, is exactly the opposite. A record breaking marathon runner in high school, Jin Won is well on his way to becoming a marathon superstar. Determined to live up to the expectations of his coaches and colleagues, Jin Won cares about one thing and one thing only: running his next race. When Jin Won finds himself struggling to maintain his record-breaking stats, his coach suggests Sang Ha step in to help as a pacemaker. Disappointed in the coach’s decision, Jin Won is anything but friendly to his new partner but with time and determination, the two runners come to find they share a similar passion, both on the track and off. As the two become closer, they begin to realize their feelings for each have taken an unexpected turn. But can they move from friend to friendlier without risking everything they’ve worked so hard to achieve? The followup project to the popular BL drama, “Where Your Eyes Linger” (2020), “Mr. Heart” is a 2020 idol web drama directed by Park Seon Jae. (Source: Viki) Edit Translation

CUTEST THING EVERThis drama just warms my heart! <3
When I heard a Korean bl was coming out I knew it was going to be good. With “Where Your Eyes Linger” still fresh in my mind I was so ready for another amazing Korean bl, and “Mr. Heart” didn’t disappoint. I feel like they could’ve had a better name though, maybe something do with running...but that’s besides the point.
I just finished this drama, and let me tell you, I’m still recovering from the huge amount of adorableness in this drama.
I was so excited for this drama, so I did something I rarely do— watch a drama while it’s airing (because I hate waiting for the next episodes) but I just couldn’t wait! Every episode left me wanting another, and when I finally finished, I was sad that it was over.
The leads have good chemistry and they’re both so adorable! The storyline wasn’t that deep, but obviously the main focus was the romance. I found myself getting attached to the characters, and smiling at the screen allll the time.
I’m definitely rewatching it in the future when I want to feel happy, and I highly recommended it!
My biggest problem was how Sang Ha's story and the romance were disconnected. They felt like two different shows. We had fun comedy and fluff between main leads, and punches and threatening with debt collectors. Both put next to each other just didn't click well, since they almost always were presented separately.
The characters were also quite a mess. Sang Ha and Jin Woo had both half a brain cell that they must have shared. The bad guys told you they will ruin Jin Won's chance to win by throwing water at him? You tell Jin Won about it. It's that simple. It's not like his debt was a secret. They could have easily prevent it from happening, without Sang Ha going after first place (good for him tho lol). Why did he even cut contact with Jin Won after the marathon? His whole logic for winning and paying the debt was to protect Jin Won and be able to keep running with him (as he "passionately" screamed at his face in last episode)... but then he just left? LoGiC
Jin Won with the whole "go buy yourself proper new running shoes" when Sang Ha already told him he is running early morning to deliver milk, coz he ain't got money but he needs to pay debt. Something didn't click right in Jin Won's brain I guess. Not to mention that punch in the last episode. WHERE THE HECK IT CAME FROM? Not once they hinted that Jin Won might be one to react aggressively with physical force. And here he is punching kid in the face. This is called bad writing, ladies and gentlemen.
The debt storyline was truly the worst part that ruined the whole show for me. Why they couldn't keep it simple with a sweet romance is beyond me. The debt collectors went from punching the kid in the face to crying when he finally paid it off, giving some bullshit, out of place, emotional reaction. Not to mention, apparently in korea, when your parents die when you are in middle school, you don't go to orphanage or foster family You are left alone to deal with it... go figure
It had some cute moments, I'm not gonna lie, but instead of watching the whole show, you could watch the highlights on youtube. Even the last scene with, they had to ruin by making them run in a semi formal clothes ON A DATE lol We get it, they are runners. Damn the writers... why?
Get rid off the bullshit debt angst story, use the few minutes you gained to develop the relationship a but more, and it would be easily 9/10 for me.
