Daemang/Great Ambition Review – To be or not to be…a hero

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Jae Young (Jang Hyuk) was an unlikely hero, humble, sweet, nerdy and full of fears. But he was also a smart kid, with a positive attitude  and a persistent smile. Until one day, his scheming father and psychopath older brother caused the death of his best friends, and managed to make him somewhat responsible.

Jae Young lost his will to live and his self-esteem was nearly destroyed. From that moment on, he carried that cross, the debilitating burden of guilt, and you could feel it in every gesture. His voice had become but a whisper. Jang Hyuk’s interpretation of the character’s deep depression was wonderful.

Hi: I decided to write these short reviews as a guide to anyone who is currently “discovering” Jang Hyuk. Of course, everyone’s taste is different but I hope this is helpful to someone. These are only highlights of feelings and impressions that stuck but for more detailed reviews I will need to re watch. In the meantime, here we go with the first group of series.
