A drama that makes me laugh is a treasure and Blade Man makes me laugh a lot. In fact I laugh every time I think about it. It seems to be a parody of “X-Men" with a little "Avengers" mixed in and I suspect it will appeal to a select few. Hong Bin is the CEO of Global Games. He is full of rage and when he gets angry all hell breaks loose. The weather changes to thunderstorms, there are power blackouts, and blades sprout from his upper body like a porcupine with which he does major damage to trees, buildings, and anything else that gets in his way before he passes out. And it’s all because of a lost love. (His father interfered.)
The drama starts out with ominous music, stormy weather, various objects being slashed or broken, and the chief housekeeper, Butler Yoon, bemoaning her difficult life. The master has started with his episodes again.
Housekeeper pushes her way past Secretary Go to announce breakfast. Since HongBin gets angry whether or not she she tells him, it’s better to let him know. It seems that he experiences the world mostly through his nose so he sniffs the air and confronts her with everything they have prepared; and the marmalade in the fridge has gone bad. She checks the marmalade and it is bad.
HongBin leafs through his clothes trying to find something to wear that doesn’t smell like detergent. Then he tells SecGo to change his fragrance because it smells like spit. But why has his nose gotten so sensitive lately?
At work, HongBin severely damages a couple of employees and a lot of equipment because video game sales have gone down. Outside, SecGo calmly orders new supplies including laptops and chairs to replace the broken ones.
On the way to somewhere he kicks out his driver and secretary because they have the same fragrance that smells like spit. It’s not the first time he did something like that. While he is driving, the report of last night’s devastation comes on the radio. Apparently the same thing happened recently on a rainy night. It’s not clear if HongBin is aware that he did it. He mentions having nightmares and SecGo always gets him home in bed before he wakes up.
Meanwhile our heroine, SeDong, is being harassed by her landlord for living with a bunch of guys. They hide and she denies it but they get caught in the end. Turns out the group comprises a company of video game creators.
One of the guys get stuck under the sink and it takes all of them to pull him out. Somehow this results in a herniated disc and he has to be hospitalized.
In the same hospital, HongBin is compensating his damaged employees with money and promotions. Their scent nauseates him but he soon catches a different scent and follows it to SeDong.
For HongBin, the smell of SeDong’s breath is reminiscent of peaceful music, fresh fruit, and beautiful flowers. It’s the familiar scent of his lost love and he flashes back to the good times they spent together.
Turns out that SeDong’s partner sold the company to Global Games. without consulting her and is on his way to America. SeDong isn’t taking it sitting down and determines to get their game (Monstro) back before it is released to the public. SungHwan tells her that the CEO is the worst of the worst. In fact there are no pictures of him on the Internet because he looks like the devil. HongBin calls SecGo and asks if he really looks like the devil?
HongBin is determined to get back to Global Games before SeDong gets there. But on the way he runs into his bad dad (literally). Bad dad wants an apology and HongBin gets so angry that the weather starts to change.
SecGo picks HB up and carries him to a gym so he can vent his anger before a full fledged storm breaks out. He beats on SecGo until reminded that SeDong is coming to the office. Then he beats him a little more for good measure. (SecGo seems to have a supernatural pain tolerance.)
When they finally get to Global Games, SeDong isn’t there. She took a detour to try and stop the betrayer from leaving the country. Betrayer hides in the men’s restroom. HongBin calls him and betrayer reminds HB that he refused to hire the team when he bought the company. But other forces are at work.
A little boy is brought into the airport by a mysterious woman. She sends him into the men’s restroom and is chased by some suspicious men. One of them stumbles into SeDong and is arrested for sexual harassment. Turns out he was on the wanted list for threats and blackmail. The woman goes into hiding and the little boy is taken to the police station.
The little boy is afraid of the police because police were there when he lost his mother. The only one that can calm him is SeDong so she ends up taking him home with her until they can find his parents.
HongBin reflects on happier times with TaeHee and his father who put an end to it. This results in another episode of thunderstorms, power outs, and random destruction. HB passes out and SecGo carries him back to his bed.
Turns out the boy is a result of the love between HongBin and TaeHee and the woman is trying to contact him. But Butler Yoon is afraid to wake him.
SecGo stands over HongBin until he wakes up and tells him where to find SeDong. When she arrived with the boy HB is waiting and becomes intoxicated on the fragrance of her breath once again. DramaFever
