On August 13th, Saturday-Sunday’s tvN drama ‘Live Up to Your Name’ depicted Heo Im (Kim Nam Gil) a 400-year-old acupuncture, visited Seoul in 2017 and met Choi Yeon Kyung (Kim Ah Jung), a home surgery specialist at Shin Hye Hospital. Kim Nam Gil’s acting which portrayed a character with an impressive performance had given surprises and made his drama to be funny and interesting.
When Choi Yeon Kyung saw Heo Im for the first time, she mistakenly thought he was a ‘night club waiter’. Though she had trusted him as an acupuncture specialist in Joseon’s time, Choi Yeon Kyung could not take her eyes off. That’s because she did not believe in acupuncture, regardless of the age difference between the two. It can be known from Yeon Kyung’s expression when she saw Heo Im giving his saliva to the patient.
Yeon Kyung skipped Oh Ha Ra’s patient who got stabbed at the club and watched a man falling into the pneumothorax. When she saw Heo Im, she asked ‘Are you crazy?’ He pushed the coffin into the emergency room and took out the gas.Ha Ra who suffered from liver disease ran into the hospital corridor with a gasping breath. At that moment, she slaps Heo
Ha Ra who suffered from liver disease ran into the hospital corridor with a gasping breath. At that moment, she slapped Heo Im using acupuncture and said she has made a mistake. It seems that it was because Yeon Kyung lost her mother due to a sickness, and she was treated by acupuncture instead of being taken to the hospital.
There are some interests in overcoming the stereotype toward acupunture and also interest in building a cooperative system through Heo Im, a gifted Korean acupuncture. Viewers also anticipate Kim Nam Gil and Kim Ah Jung’s great chemistry.
