It's A Wonderful Life 'Korean Version'. Lesson: when you suffer injustice and life deals you a bad hand, rise above it and enjoy living (life is precious). Everyday is a miracle, so be thankful for every moment. I believe Kang Chil was being TESTED by being givin the oppotunity to redeem himself through love and contrition. It was touching watching Kang Chil's shadow and protector Gook Soo take on his burdens to lessen his pain. Undeniably his GUARDIAN ANGEL. I also found Kang Chil's forwardness and lack of social etiquette towards Ji Na rather amusing and refreshing. The passion they shared for each other excited the senses and melted the screen. LOVE IS MADNESS and UNPREDICTABLE in many ways. Both Ji Na and Kang Chil had to come to terms with the revelation that their intertwined destinies in the end might get in the way of their happiness. This hurdle definitely tested their love and commitment to each other. LOVE CONQUERS ALL, and you will be surprised to see how this story ends.
Question, does having plenty of money make you happy? It all depends on your definition of happy, however, if your dubious about the answer then watching this drama should clear it up for you. The protagonist, Kim Do Hyun had everything a man could want; the love of a good woman, friends and a bright future. Like Scrooge in a Christmas Carol nothing good can come out of greed. A hard lesson learned, but the experience makes him wiser. On the flipside, his mentor uses greed as a substitute for the emptiness in her life. She opens up a Pandora's Box by taking him under her wing, ha...ha...ha...oh how she's regretting that decision. You are certain to find elements from the movies Wall Street, The Devil's Advocate and A Christmas Carol revealed throughout this drama. My, my, my it was a joy watching this man come full circle. In all, masterfully written, directed and acted, not to be missed.
My heart ached for the character played by Kim Sun Ah. To be stricken so early on with this disease and yet persevere is a testament to her strength of character and her willingness to survive. Lesson: when life blindsides you, it doesn't mean you should stop living. Knowing that there is only so much time to live would make those who have something to live for reflect on their life while others sadly would just accept their fate. However you cope determines how you will be remembered. Knowing this, Yeon Jae made up her mind to make the remaining time she had left mean something. It is no wonder Dong Wook fell in love with her. The sacrifice he makes to be with her proves that love conquers all. In essence, he gives her the strength to keep on living. This is a drama about hope, salvation and deliverance which will tug at your heart and make you reflect on your life. It was truly inspirational, not soon to be forgotten, a must see.
