It's not your ordinary romantic-comedy Korean drama. It won't only make you fall in love and laugh, but it will also give you a valuable life lesson.

"Whatever you're going through, stay alive because it will get better."

I knew about the drama through its official soundtrack. It has been in my playlist for years now even if I haven't watched it yet. When I finally did, I think that the songs perfectly fit the show. While watching through the series, I cannot imagine any other songs playing than those songs. They gave a strong impact in each scene. And they are also the reason why I tear up every time.

I watched this drama two or three years ago, and I got stuck in episode 1 since then. I randomly decided to finally find some time to watch it, and I don't have any regrets.

The story is about a man named Park Do Kyung who took revenge on the wrong people. He accidentally ruined their lives.

As a background, he got stood up by his bride, Oh Hae Yong, on their wedding day. She suddenly disappeared without any trace. After a year, he learned that Oh Hae Yong was about to get married. He was bitter, which is normal. But he also didn't have any plans on acting on it until his friend pushed him through it.

He plotted revenge on the groom of Oh Hae Yong. Embarrassed by the sudden turn of events, the groom breaks off the wedding by dumping Oh Hae Yong. The conflict was, it wasn't the same Oh Hae Yong!

So, there are two Oh Hae Yongs. What a twist of fate!

What's even crazier is, they both came from the same class in high school, and they even lived in the same neighborhood. Everyone would assume that it's just the same person. Right?

To make things worse, the other Oh Hae Yong, that got ruined because of the misunderstanding, fell in love with Park Do Kyung.

The drama has a cool plot. But I admit, there were times where I felt that it should've ended on the 16th episode. It was unnecessarily dragged to 18. 

Honestly, the male lead was one of the reasons why it was hard for me to go on with this drama. Initially, I was not sure if I liked him because he looked boring in the first episode. But I eventually learned to love his character. I like how natural he was in his role. He was introverted, a perfectionist, and miserable. I didn't cringe a bit, but I felt like his character development was too slow.

The female lead was the total opposite of the male lead. She was very open to everything. It was fun to watch her chase the male lead. It somehow shows us that expressing feelings for the opposite sex knows no gender. It's okay. If you like someone, let them know. There's nothing wrong with it as long as you don't step on others' toes. 

I liked them the most when they became a couple. Who would've thought that the reserved character of the male lead would soften because of the bubbly character of the female lead? I liked how they fought for what they had. They set aside everything for what they had together.

I also loved all the supporting characters. Usually, supporting characters have a flat role all throughout. But the director and writer developed each of them in a good way. My favorite will be the male lead's sister and friend. I already had a hunch that something fruitful will come out of those two.

How can I even forget the female lead's parents? I love how they are all-in for their daughter.

I can consider this drama as a healing drama. It may be over the top, truly impossible to happen in life. But its life lessons calmed my anxiety. It taught us to stop being scared and to keep going. 

What really hit me was the idea of seeing flashbacks on my deathbed without any regrets. I think this is a must-watch for people who are going through mid-life crises. It helped me a lot. 

Have you watched this drama? What are your thoughts on it? Feel free to share it below. I'd be happy to read it.
