Falling for Innocence aka Beating Again: A Jumpstart!


I’ve always wanted this plot to come to life in a drama ever since I listened to Timeless by Junsu and Zhang LiYin which came out in 2006. A super long wait which I am finally satisfying with Falling for Innocence. This drama tells the story of Kang Min Ho whose family endured betrayal and a corporate coup instigated by his uncle. As a result, his father died and his mother committed suicide while his uncle ruled the company for 25 years. Min Ho dedicates his whole life to getting revenge for his family and taking down his uncle. He becomes known in the corporate world as a ruthless businessman who is so jaded about life that he doesn’t give a rat’s ass to whoever he is hurting. However, his time is limited as he has a heart condition (that his father also had), which gives him only a month’s time left to complete his revenge. As he tries to land the last blow on his uncle’s company, he meets Soon Jung, a very capable secretary whose father was the one that betrayed Min Ho’s father. Thus, he marked her as public enemy number #2 for payback.

Meanwhile Soon Jung is about to get married to her lovable and adorable boyfriend who is a cop. She and her boyfriend are friends with Joon Hee, who is a lawyer to the same company that the uncle rules. Methinks he has feelings for Soon Jung, too, but does not want to cause trouble with his cop hyung. Unfortunately, her boyfriend instigates a fight with Min Ho to which Min Ho makes a settlement with Soon Jung by offering her to be his own secretary instead of his uncle’s. He shows her the uncle’s true colors and manipulative ways. She also learns that Min Ho is sick as he falls into her arms when they had arranged a meeting to discuss business matters. Min Ho’s condition is found out by his uncle and his whole plan falls apart. He thinks that Soon Jung was the one who leaked the info and completely loses his temper. He is rushed to the ER in a critical state. Meanwhile Soon Jung’s boyfriend find out that Joon Hee is doing illegal dealings as he is ambitious and wants to rise to the top instead of being someone’s dog. The cop boyfriend coincidentally gets into a car accident to which he passes away from. However, not before his heart is deemed compatible for Min Ho who had only a 1% chance of survival and finding a donor heart. Min Ho receives the new heart and possible a new personality change?
