What I Liked Best about Beautiful Mind
The best thing I like about Beautiful Mind is the way it tells the story of each character in the drama, making us rethink about various aspects of humanity and society which we may have ignored or overlooked. Eg how we perceive people with mental disorders, how doctors have to deal with the dilemma of doing research at the expense of patients, how patients who could not afford treatments due to poverty etc. It makes us reflect upon ourselves.
What I Liked Least about Beautiful Mind
I think some of the medical jargon may be too hard to grasp for some viewers. It will be good if they can explain it a little in the drama in layman terms to the audience.
Would I Recommend Beautiful Mind?
Of course I would. It is a drama that provokes thinking and feeling. But I would not recommend it to people who do not like to think too much and prefers fluffy light-hearted comedies.
Similar/Other Kdramas I’d Recommend?
These 3 shows are not really similar to Beautiful Mind but all of them involved the male leads having to deal with a mental disorder. They were all great.
* “It’s Ok, It’s love”
* “Kill Me, Heal Me”
* “I Remember You” aka “Hello Monster”
