  • Title: 49 Days /49일 / 49 Il
  • Genre: Fantasy, Romance
  • Episodes: 20

  • Synopsis: Shin Ji Hyun was enjoying absolute bliss as she was about to marry her fiancé, Kang Min Ho, but her perfect life is shattered when she gets into a car accident that leaves her in a coma. She is given a second chance at life by a reaper, but it comes with a condition: she has to find three people outside of her family who would cry genuine tears for her. In order to do this, she borrows the body of Yi Kyung, a part-time employee at a convenience store for 49 days.

This series was one of the more popular ones from last season.  It really was amazing, and not to mention different from typical Korean dramas.  While it did have the romance and the comedy, it had supernatural stuff as well, which I believe is what made the show so great.   The brilliance of this series is that everyone is connected.  As you get further and further into the series you see how everyone is connected with one another.

This drama was amazing up until about the last episode.  Most people who watched it told others to avoid watching  this series because of the ending.  Now, I”m not saying that the ending was good or bad.  All I will say that it was shocking and unexpected.  It really depends on your perspective.  It had both happy and sad moments, it just depends on what you choose to focus on.  In my opinion, it was an okay ending. Although, I am annoyed with the writers for pulling a stunt like that in the last episode.  There were not only one, but two, twists at the end of the series.  Both caught me off guard.

I highly recommend this series, simply because it’s just so different from most Korean dramas. It really is good, despite it’s controversial ending.

My Rating: (4.5/5)
