“Amy: I was excited for Mr. Baek but I wasn’t sure what to expect as dramas like this tend to be hit or miss for me. I really enjoyed the first episode, though!

Wendilynn: I didn’t know what to expect either. All I knew is that our lead male, Shin Ha Kyun likes playing goofy characters and that I love Jang Na Ra. So I really wanted to see this one. Besides… Lee Joon makes excellent eye candy”.

ninja@ninja reflection:

“It looks like the show is going to go with plenty of intrigue and villain plotting. I don’t necessary have a problem with that, but I am actually a lot more interested to see how this once powerful Chairman adjust to everyday life and realize his vow of finally taking his time to really live”.

Episodes 03 to 16 (finale)  First impressions

dea@beatus corner:

“Mr Back has completely captured my heart”.

Episode 05  Episode 04  Episode 03  Episode 02  Episode 01

rinchan@couch kimchi:

“I am curious about how she would react if she learned the truth. It would be telling if she chose to stay by his side despite the circumstances”.

Episodes 09 & 10 


“I don’t know what’s with the fantasy genre and Wed-Thu slots, but we have a new fantasy genre drama from MBC, Mr Back, taking over the slot from My Spring Days. Episode 1 definitely looks more normal than Blade Man, but it requires as much (okay, maybe lesser) suspension of disbelief”.

First impressions


Mister Baek‘ is a classic example of a drama which seems like it has no idea where to go and what to do. Instead, it glues scenes together, uses as many elements to keep things going as possible and eventually manages to say very little about all of its themes. It is a shame, given the cast is good and that the emotions are often well portrayed and written into these scenes. A clear goal and a plot to achieve it could have made this great”.
