What am I going to do with my life now that this is over? ㅠㅠ
I loved this drama whole heartedly from the first seconds right to its last. It was perfection. The characters and the story telling were beautiful and real life. There was no extra makjang or overly romantic scenes: Se Hee and Ji Ho alongside the other characters were perfection in their imperfection. The characters had flaws but they learned to live with them.
There was only one moment I hesitated and that was when Se Hee’s past aka the dreaded ex returned but Because This is My First Life did not disappoint. There characters faced their problems. This drama can actually gives you good advice and encouragement in life. The lines and transitions between view points are like from a book: they’re effortless and enhance the scenes’ mood.
I can’t remember ever liking a female character as much as I liked Ji Ho. She was strong with her convictions and decisions but she was calm and collected. Se Hee was such a cutie I couldn’t help but love him. Their relationship was an amazing trip.
Like I said in my CW, this drama reminded me about myself in many ways and just played with the questions I love to ask. There really is no over selling this drama and I can’t seem to find the words to describe it. If it clicks with you then you will love it to no end, like I did. Because This is My First Life gives us a good reminder that is really is our first life. It’s ok to fail and go for your happiness.
