My Fantastic Funeral was actually broadcast as a two-part special on SBS last month, but I only got the chance to check it out earlier today. The only thing I know about the drama is it stars Kyung Soo-jin and Choi Woo-shik as the leads, but it leaves a deep impression on me. Hours after I finished watching it, all the feelings I had are still intact: the sweetness, the bitterness, and the tears that follow.
They are not really rookies anymore since their names are widely known among the drama viewers, so the caption used by one of the magazines is fitting: Super Rookies! These people are just waiting for the right moment for them to ‘graduate’ into leads (except for some of them, who already grabbed the chance) but no worries, I am willing to wait a little longer for their breakout projects! After all, I’m a bit reluctant to lose these awesome sidekicks in dramas..
It’s that time of the year again, when airing dramas end and new dramas take over the empty slots left by the predecessors. Yesterday, several dramas aired their premiere episode as two of them caught my attention. I realize that nowadays I’m not that consistent with my drama watching schedule as I tend to drop halfway and in some rare cases, I even dropped dramas right after I saw the first episode. This time, I’m quite happy to say that I’m quite relieved when the two dramas that caught my attention, Shark and Dating Agency: Cyrano, exceed my expectation.
The young ones take their final bows and it’s the time for their adult counterparts to take over the stage. Time flies, almost unnoticed by some people, but quite slow for others. If someone could turn back the time, what would they do? Stay the same, or try to change what they’ve done? Although we can plan and do whatever it takes for our future, the future still holds many great surprises for us and at times, the regret is going to get us for whatever we have done in the past.
Is this the fate’s game? Trampling over the people’s lives, throwing them into the deepest, blackest hole in their hearts. To me, the characters are not at total fault for their greed and betrayal. It’s the cruel fate that’s giving reasons for them to act almost inhumanely. What can they do when at one point, they can only choose to protect one side and eventually sacrifices the other side?
