Synopsis

Yoo In Na - Touch Your Heart
Yoo In Na

Oh Yoon Seo is a very popular actress but she is also kind of the joke of the town when it comes to the entertainment industry. Simply put, her acting is horrible. But since she is pretty, she continues to get booked for roles. Unfortunately, everything changes when she gets mixed up into a very public scandal with the son of a rich family.

Fortunately, right when it looks like her career is coming to its end, a famous screenwriter wants to cast her for a role in her movie. Oh Yoon Seo wants to convince her that she will do a great job and agrees to intern as a secretary in a law firm since the female lead is a legal secretary.

Touch Your Heart Review

Touch your heart is a romantic comedy through and through. If you are looking for a light drama that will make your heart flutter without making you cry, this series is for you.

Yoon Seo and Jung Rok

Plot

The plot is well thought out of and coherent. Nothing extremely farfetched so you will not have a hard time getting involved in the story. Throughout the entire drama, the writers do a great job of not deviating from the main storyline even though all the characters get a chance to shine.

The drama is clearly about the love story between Yoon Seo and Jung Rok. The show will tackle many cases that will bring out different aspects of the main characters’ personalities. This will help them address the hurt and traumas from their past. Every subplot is designed to help the characters grow.

This is executed beautifully because by the end of the show both Yoon Seo and Jung Rok will grow as individuals and as a couple.

Performances

Korean Drama to Watch: Touch Your heart

Yoo In Na and Lee Dong Wook’s chemistry is undeniable.

Yoon Seo’s lighthearted attitude and her charm will make you adore her. She starts off a little ditzy but she evolves into a strong and smart woman.

Jung Rok is reliable and devoted. He does not have a lot of experience dating women but he sure knows how to make a woman feel that she is the only one in the room. You will melt as you see him transform and start to open up to Yoon Seo

The supporting characters also played a great role. With Yeo Run and Se Won, we get to see a more serious tone to love and the power of forgiveness.

And with Yoon Hyuk and Moon Hee’s romance, we learned that it is important to value your worth in a relationship. Moon Hee realizes that she could not go around giving everything to men who did not respect or cherish her.

What did not work?

Korean Drama to Watch: Touch Your heart

There is not much to complain about when it comes to this drama.

Yoon Seo and Jung Rok’s innocence can be off-putting in some scenes, especially considering that they are almost in their 40s, but overall it works.

However, I have to mention that the build-up to certain plotlines will not live up their expectations. For example, we spend almost 11 episodes anticipating Gang Joon’s return.

Throughout the show, we get little hints that Yoon Seo was terribly hurt by the scandal even though we are not sure exactly what happened. Then, we learn about the stalking, the drugging, and how she was accused of being an accomplice.

We expect that when he returns, he will come with a vengeance and Jung Rok will have to use his amazing lawyer skills to send him to jail.

Alas, it took less than 2 episodes for the conflict to be resolved. Gang Joon attacks Yoo Seo. Jung Rok saves her and punches him. Gang Joon gets arrested. The END.

Excuse me while I go back to bed. Boring.

But then again, I had to remind myself that this is a romantic comedy, not a thriller. Therefore it gets a pass.

Final Thoughts

I highly recommend this drama. It is the perfect drama to relax, laugh, and swoon. It also has a strong message about how rumors can destroy someone’s life. It draws attention to the fact that public opinion can be harsh and tend to condemn before knowing all the facts

The show really drives home the point that we should not judge a book by its cover. It’s important to take the time to get to know people and not to make assumptions.

PS: You may get annoyed towards the end with the high amount of product placements.

Touch Your Heart OST

The soundtrack is one of the best parts of watching this drama. Touch Your Heart’s OST is the perfect score for a romantic show.

My favorite songs of the OST are definitely Wendy’s What if Love, Chen’s Make it Count, Jeong Sewoon’s Good Night.

What if Love – Wendy

Make it Count – Chen

Good Night – Jeong Sewoon

Touch Heart Ranking

During its time on air, Touch Your Heart’s ranking did not change much. They ranged between 3.33% and 5.62%, with the first two weeks receiving the highest ratings on Thursday. Source:  AGB Nielson
