Just finished this drama and on the whole I enjoyed it. It stars Yoon Kye-sang and Ha Ji Won as the main couple. I have to also put a word for the secondary lead actor Jang Seung-jo who I really liked as well.
THe basic story is that these two characters met at different times in their lives and totally impacted each other and, in true kdrama fashion, realize that fate does have the upper hand at the end of the day. After a few twists and turns, both find themselves working at a hospice where people live the end of their lives and the drama does a great job of showing each case in a very sensitive way. I won’t lie..it’s very sad to get fond of them knowing that they will soon be gone but I tried to focus on the positive and brightness they brought…as the heroine said: They are not here to die but rather to live the final days of their lives..emphasis on “live”. I loved the reminder that at the end of the day making a person happy can be as simple as making someone a special dish..it’s the little things.
I really loved the way there was so much healing in this drama..if not physically then emotionally ..and these people really need it. They carry alot of scars. Even more than the main couple I loved the up and down relationship between the two men (who were cousins taught to hate each other)..love how they slowly realize that what they’ve been taught to do is not what they want to do at the end of the day. Even her annoying brother was given character growth..lol..though there were a few that were left intact..and that’s life too..some people are beyond repair.
Some might consider it slow..maybe even depressing at times.. and I had a bit of quibble about the ending but overall I’m not sorry that I watched it. I felt a certain comfort in watching the heroine approach life and realize the reason why and the beautiful scenes in Greece were the icing on the cake!!
