KDrama: 49 Days

49 Days ended a few days ago but my heart is still heavy with all the crying and angst.

I so love the story and pace, with each episode leaving you on the edge, wanting for the days to move a little faster to watch the next one.

I wanted to write about it every episode but I felt I cannot give justice to the complexity of the story.

There’s the stories between

1. Ji Hyun-Min Ho
2. Ji Hyun-Kang Ah
3. Kang Ah-Min Ho
4. Min Ho-In Jung
5. Ji Hyun-In Jung
6. Ji Hyun-Yi Soo
7. Yi Soo-Yi Kyung
8. Yi Kyung-Ji Hyun

And there’s still about the parents and friends.

It’s a melodrama about life and death.

After watching, one would reflect if you’d

1. Lived your life with purpose
2. Been loved and have truly loved another
3. Believe in fate/ destiny

I cried for everyone on the KDrama, even for the evils Min Ho and In Jung. I hate them but also felt pity.

But I cried the most for the love between Yi Soo and Yi Kyung (even now that I am typing this my eyes are blurry). Their love is so pure but tragic, I soo wanted them to be together but I know they can’t. I love-hate the ending because of that.

I really recommend this drama, I plan to watch it again, I already miss Yi Soo!

In order to do this, she borrows the body of Yi Kyung, a part-time employee at a convenience store for 49 days.
