The Invisible Man is a Korean drama series. It is about Choi Jang Soo, a powerful detective, devoting his limited-time life to the happiness of his wife and two children after he receives the sentence.
This drama stands apart from previous dramas by reminding viewers of the importance of strong family ties through its main character, an Alzheimer’s-stricken detective Choi Jang-soo. Jang-soo decides to do his best to make his family happy after he learns that he has little time left to live. Portrayed by top stars, Chae Si-ra (who plays So-young) and Yoo Oh-sung (who plays Jang-soo), the main characters of the drama depict a true-to-life story of a married couple: a wife who holds several jobs to buy a home and her sly yet lovely husband. The couple goes through a challenging time when fund manager Jun-ho, who has loved So-young for a long time, and ex-criminal Hyun-soo, who loves Jang-soo, appear in their lives. The portrayals of Jun-ho by actor Cho Yun-woo and of Hyun-soo by Choi Yeo-jin are quite impressive. The drama honestly depicts the everyday reality of fathers who have no other choice but to neglect their families to earn the living and mothers who turn into stouthearted “warriors” who can do anything for the sake of their families.
