Mi Rae wakes up from her so called “happy life” by deciding to follow her dream: to become a broadcast writer. But you cannot avoid fate, not matter how ill-fated it is…
Putting aside the fact that I had to spend so long time finishing this drama, I have to say I couldn’t be more annoyed with the half assed ending. I am not saying that these kinds of endings work in dramas, but when you make a drama based on one girl choosing one of two’s, even returning back in time in order to fix the actual result, and not telling the viewers what her choice was, is like having a drama with a random name. Like in Korean the drama is called “Mirae’s Choice”, but surprisingly no choice was made, or maybe it was but we weren’t told what it was. Sorry for the spoil, but I would not recommend people to watch this unless they like that kind of dramas. To say something nicely about this Lee Dong Gun is the star here, no one else. I was disappointed in both Eun Hye and Yong Hwa for such random and boring characters that I couldn’t care less for their relationship. BUT to say something nicely the first part (6 first episodes) are quite amazing, just ruined it later on.
So here are my ratings, and I hope you get anything out of it.
