Review: Persevere Gu Hae Ra (칠전팔기, 구해라)

Delaying this review by more than a month because there was nothing much to talk about this one.

Persevere Gu Hae Ra 1


Music, Romance


Three friends, Gu Hae Ra (Min Hyo Rin), Kang Se Chan (B1A4’sJin Young) and Kang se Jong (Kwak Shi Yang) dream of becoming singers. They participate in an audition program. There they meet Henry (Super Junior M’s Henry), Lee Woo Ri (Yoo Sung Eun) and Jang Goon(Ulala Session’s Park Kwang Seon). Due to certain events they are forced to quit the show. Kang Se JOng is taken as a trainee in an entertainment company. Things become rough between the three friends because of this event. Kang Se Chan decides to put things straight and goes to meet his brother Se Jong but loses his life in an accident. Gu Hae Ra finds Se Chan’s diary and sees a bucket list. One of his wish is to get back together with his friends from the audition program and become singers. She decides to fulfill his dream with the help of Ray (also played by Jin Young) the long lost twin brother of Se Chan. How they succeed in the cruel entertainment industry when a big man is trying to stamp them with all his means is what this drama tells.

The Plus Factor:

Just one thing. This drama lived up to its name of being a musical. The re-made songs were really AWESOME. I actually watched the drama only to get to know of good songs. The supporting characters Henry, Lee Woo Ri and Jang Goon brought a nice breeze to the otherwise dry drama. Yoo Seung Eun has a wonderful voice and i loved all the songs she sang in this drama.

Persevere Gu Hae Ra 2

The Minus Factor:

They dragged the love triangle more than necessary. The plot was going in circles around the same thing for a long time. So it was actually boring.

My Rating

7/10. Would have rated it lower if not for the songs.
