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? (Source: Viki) Edit Translation
Where to Watch Mr. Heart (Movie)
Cast & Credits
Cute movie, however, it's not different from the showIn this movie edition, there weren't really any cinematic changes. All the inner-dialogue was still there, the music was pretty much the same. Basically, the only difference between the show and the movie was there not being an intro and outro every episode.
To be completely honest, the story was boring, even though it's painful to admit. Or maybe the story was actually good, only portrayed poorly? I believe that the issue is, that trying to portray mature themes like Sang-Ha being in debt, just doesn't work when the "episodes" were only 10 minutes long. It could be portrayed in a movie form, but this movie was just a compilation of the episodes. What saved the movie for me though was the chemistry between the two leads. Both Sang-Ha and Won's characters were luckily very likable and from a viewer's point of view, it makes great sense why they fit together. Even though the story was very all over the place, they both saved the story because they were a great match. And honestly, the climactic kiss was terrific. It seemed so much more realistic than a handful of dramas out there. It was very fitting to the mood.
Really big applause to Lee Se Jin and Cho Seung Ho for their fantastic acting. And the soundtrack was excellent, I really enjoyed the different songs and have saved most of them to my playlist. If I were to rewatch, I'd definitely watch the movie adaptation just to save myself from having to skip intros all the time. However, I wish the movie had some sort of change compared to the drama.
Mr Icicle meets Mr Hot cup of milkThis drama is sweet but also makes me go what... The story is sweet we have the emotionally closed off icicle in desperate need of some one to though his col, cold heart and Mr heart or more fitting Mr Hot cup of milk who is a tad obsessive and in desperate need of a lesson in consent and finding his self worth.... Unlike other obsessive male leads this guy shows persistence without any aggression witch makes it hard to dislike him, This movie (also as a series) shows us the importance of equal footing in a relationship with the added bonus of sweet loan sharks.
All in all an okay watch.
