The K-drama Healer is almost to the halfway point, and it is gaining momentum as it progresses. The action romance, which stars Ji Chang WookPark Min Young, and Yoo Ji Tae, has developed a devoted following of viewers waiting on the edge of their seats for the next episode, and we can't say that we blame them! Here are 8 factors from the first 8 episodes that have fueled our intense Healer obsession.

Watch the latest episode:

1. The whole Clark Kent/Healer vibe

Seeing Ji Chang Wook transform from the stuttering, nervous Bong Soo to the confident Healer is both hilarious and amazing. What a difference a pair of glasses makes!

2. The thrilling stunts

In keeping with the Superman theme, he leaps buildings with a single bound! It may not be realistic, but it sure is fun to watch.

3. The tech-savvy ahjumma

Kim Mi Kyung is an absolute chameleon of an actress. She has played almost every type of role imaginable, and as the knitting hacker Min Ja, she brings comic relief to the series.

4. The knee-buckling chemistry

Swoooooooon. I mean, I guess if you don't like sighing and clutching your heart, you shouldn't watch this show. For everyone else, just how much did you squeal in delight at the end of episode 8?

5. Chae Young Shin's sweet, sweet dance moves

Reportedly, Jaejoong himself helped Park Min Young with this choreography! I just love how uninhibited her character is. She's someone I would want as a friend in real life.

6. Kim Moon Ho's charisma

If I were an aspiring reporter, I would hang posters of Kim Moon Ho on my wall, too. He's confident, charismatic, and bold — everything a hotshot reporter should be.

7. The mystery

The pieces of past and present are starting to come together, but it will be interesting to see what happens when the full mystery unfolds. Do we have the full picture from the flashbacks so far, or are there more surprises in store?

8. Your friendly neighborhood thugs

Just how much do you love that Young Shin's best buds growing up were all of the ex cons in the neighborhood? They haven't appeared much, but here's hoping they team up with Healer later in the series!

And a bonus...

Look, it's not the main reason to watch, but Ji Chang Wook sure doesn't hurt, either.
