I’m up to episode 6 of 49 Days, and while I started out with high expectations and excitement, I must admit it has all kind of waned. I think it’s because the focus on Bae Soo Bin and Seo Ji Hye’s mysterious connection was so strong, and yet I wasn’t really interested. I mean, I was, but I’d rather have that spaced out a bit with more revelations/interactions between Nam Gyu Ri and Jung Il Woo.
More of Jung Il Woo = GOODNESS GALORE! He’s the nice amount of humor much needed for the drama. And Lee Yo Won is surprisingly cute as the episodes go on; in a way, she’s getting better at portraying a bubbly Ji Hyun now.
One thing I can’t stand is how much of a dimwit Ji Hyun can be. If her higher IQ means she can finally realize that no one thinks of her as Shin Ji Hyun because she’s in Song Yi Kyung’s body then…she’s worse than Ma Hye Ri in Prosecutor Princess. And Ma Hye Ri was smart – she just followed logic differently.
I’m personally hoping that Han Kang (Jo Hyun Jae) ends up with Song Yi Kyung – shallowly, it’s because I think they look better together, and honestly it’s because I kind of want Ji Hyun to die. I think I just want her to devote her remaining 40 days to helping others and getting Song Yi Kyung’s life back on track.
I’d really like it if the rules start changing and Yi Kyung realizes there’s a spirit possessing her body – and then she actively helps Ji Hyun with the tears-gathering. Heehee – Who Are You much?
Update: I’ve watched up to episode 8 now, and I still stand by my opinions regarding my wish of Han Kang ending up with Song Yi Kyung – even though it seems like that won’t happen at all. I can dream, right?
