Korean Drama: High Kick 3! Revenge of the Short Legged (하이킥! 짧은 다리의 역습)

Monday, September 3, 2012

So I recently just finished watching the drama “High kick 3: Revenge of the Short Legged” (하이킥! 짧은 다리의 역습). This was a daily, sitcom style drama that featured: Ahn Nae Sang (안내상), Yoon Yoo Sun (윤유선), Lee Jong Suk (이종석) as Ahn Jong Suk, Krystal from girl group f(x) as Ahn Soo Jung, Yoon Kye Sang (윤계상), Suh Ji Suk (서지석) as Yoon Ji Suk, Park Ha Sun (박하선), Park Ji Sun, Kim Ji Won (김지원), Julien Kang, Baek Jin Hee (백진희), and Kang Seung Yoon (강승윤).

You may have noticed that not all the actors have a separate character name listed. This is because in a sitcom, the names of the characters tend to be the same name as the actors playing them. However I did list the character name if it was in some way different from the actor’s name (mostly the last name).

The drama follows the Ahn family and their neighbors at both home and work. In the very beginning Ahn Nae Sang’s business goes bankrupt and his business partner runs away with the money. His family who is used to living in luxury must learn to live without all the glamour while hiding from their creditors. They end up living with Yoon Yoo Sun’s brothers and learn to adjust living in four-bedroom home with six people. Ahn Nae Sang ends up drilling a hole into the bathroom floor of the neighbors, which paves the way of a new friendship.

Being a sitcom, this drama was mostly hilarious with many fun stories happening. Towards the end of the series, the mood got serious but they never failed to deliver the laughter as well. I absolutely love the character growth that occurs throughout the series, but you don’t truly notice till the very end. With every character’s story line you grew with them and saw how they had changed little by little. The actors really delivered their character well and my favorite was definitely Seung Yoon, who was a rich country boy who thought the world was square.

This lighthearted comedy with a great story line and characters receives an A+ and high recommendation to watch.



PS. Other dramas that the actors have acted in include: The Moon that Embraces the Sun (Ahn Nae Sang), My Girlfriend is a Nine-Tailed Fox (Yoon Yoo Sun), Secret Garden (Lee Jong Suk), The Greatest Love (Yoon Kye Sang), Manny (Suh Ji Suk), Dong Yi (Park Ha Sun), and To The Beautiful You (Kim Ji Won and Julien Kang).
