Because This Is My First Life – Ep 13
We’re inching closer to the end and I feel myself slowing down – something I always do when I’m really enjoying a drama and don’t want it to end!!
Because This Is My First Life – Ep 12
Awesome – perfect start and another perfect cliffhanger and so much sandwiched in between!!
Because This Is My First Life Ep 1
Sorry if I’m jumping the gun. It’s my day off today and since I had a few hours to kill I dived in. Also, I just got a Firestick, so for the first time I’m watching a Kdrama on my big-screen TV instead of my laptop. I like it! Easier to take notes!
But on to the episode!!
Thru episode 6 of ‘First Life’
I will try to avoid anything that will spoil this for you because this drama is all about discoveries (in a good way!) But 6 episodes in and I love everything about it, but especially the writing and the development of the characters.
I was charmed and intrigued by the lead couple – how could I not be with that cast? – but the secondary story of the best friends of the leads has grabbed me almost as hard. You know how you get annoyed with the story shifts to anyone other than Him and/or Her story? Well I am just as invested in the story of her friend Soo Ji and his friend and boss CEO Ma and how they intersect. It is stunningly contemporary to what is going on in the news these days and there is a scene that happens in this last episode that is just so now and so un-Korean in the way it voices out what women (and the men who support women’s rights) around the Western world are rightfully exposing.
I love the way this show has made me shift from outrage to glee to sadness to sweetness so effortlessly and so well. This one is one I want to watch again; the perfect solution to waiting for the newest episodes!
