As I write this, Once more My Life will end airing in about ten days. This can be a drama recap quite than presently watching. Please get pleasure from anyway.
Lets me begin by saying that I completely hate gritty crime dramas. Arduous nostril prosecutors and corrupt politicians usually are not my cup of tea…….like ever. When my streaming feed advised I watch Once more My Life, I used to be quite bored, so I took a leap and clicked. Someplace I noticed the phrase Fantasy as a style and nicely….I’m a fantasy kinda gal. Besides this fantasy began out as a gritty crime drama. Eewwwwwww!
However then it received higher……….
Among the attention-grabbing individuals in Once more My Life
This present is okay piece of labor tailored from the novel collection of the identical identify by Lee Hae Nal. Perhaps if the title have been totally different like My Life Once more or Once more, My Life (yeah, I’m like that), I might have guessed what this present was about. Due to title confusion, I had no clue, which was in all probability a very good factor as a result of I had no preconceived notions for AML.
AML begins with Kim Hee Woo, well-done by Lee Joon Gi, a quite vigilante sort of prosecutor who would do something to catch the supervillain. The dope, Kim Hee Woo, is oblivious to a lot evil subtext that the viewer and each different character in Episode 1 perceive fairly clearly. He seems to be the one individual on the planet who doesn’t concern or love the supervillain. In truth, lengthy earlier than the top of the primary episode, NOT A SPOILER, our fearless prosecutor is killed by a minion of the highly effective supervillain.
Therefore the title, Once more My Life. Kim Hee Woo is given a second probability to stay once more, and this time, put together correctly to take down the baddie.
This supervillain Cho Tae Seob performed by Lee Kyung Younger is WAY MORE highly effective than this cocky, and albeit, fairly annoying legislation man. Regardless, I began AML and was moments from dropping this gritty crime drama earlier than episode 1 was midway by means of (please see my whiny ideas about gritty crime dramas).
Kim Hee Woo – Poor man will get bloodied lots
After our fearless hero dies, a lady in crimson, meets the corpse (he’s nonetheless transferring round fairly nicely for a lifeless man). Kim Hee Woo needs to satisfy up along with his expensive departed dad and mom……wait, this cadaver had dad and mom? The girl, who we come to know is Han Ji Hyun, gives Kim Hee Woo the chance to return in time and put together extra successfully to take down the tremendous villain who seems to be all-powerful.
She is mysterious, supernatural, and clearly has a really giant chip on her shoulder for the evil unhealthy man. As soon as the viewers determine who the girl is and the way she received the flexibility to assist the lifeless Kim Hee Woo, it makes their head harm (it’s a hen and egg situation).
Fortunately with the looks of Han Ji Hyun, THIS SHOW BLOSSOMED INTO SOMETHING INTERESTING!
Grim Reaper? Angel? Private Assistant? I don’t know.
Avoiding spoilers, simply know that in Episode 2, Kim Hee Woo morphed from a cocky annoying prosecutor right into a loving son, protector of girls, and all-around good man. Virtually to episode 6 and I nonetheless like him……fairly a bit.
That is the primary present I’ve seen with Lee Joon Gi because the lead (LOVED his cameo in Resort del Luna). I haven’t discovered a very good place to stream Moon Lovers: Scarlet Coronary heart Ryeo and I’m just a little suspicious of Flower of Evil (I like joyful endings). I’m fairly impressed along with his appearing as a result of I didn’t like him in episode 1, however I certain do like him in all the opposite episodes. Any actor that may make you hate him one second after which love him one other is an efficient actor.
There isn’t an obvious love curiosity as but however many of the feminine characters adore Kim Hee Woo. My guess is its Kim Hee Ah portrayed by Kim Ji Eun, however thus far, he likes all the ladies. Both approach. There are a number of fascinating feminine and male characters, a veritable cornucopia of characters.
Aside from the supervillain……all of the baddies thus far are fairly stereotypical. Inform me in case you’ve seen these characters earlier than:
- How in regards to the corrupt prosecutor dude who’s a hideous father?
- I do discover the formidable prosecutor a little bit of a nitwit…..however he makes me chortle.
- Evil enforcer dude can actually take a punch, carrying black in fact, however is kind of standard.
- Ahhhh….can’t neglect in regards to the scummy son of the corrupt police chief……ick.
The nasty characters are acquainted however not so tiresome to look at. However the GOOD GUYS are quite thrilling and witty. I am fairly entertained by them.
Loads of good guys and unhealthy guys and cannon fodder to maintain issues attention-grabbing
A number of episodes in and I actually like these songs. What the Ggang carried out by Yoon Do Hyun and Carry It On sung by Son Seung Yeon are two that stand out for me thus far. None have reached the repetitive irritating level, however this will likely change by episode 16. But, I could obtain What the Ggang earlier than the top of the month. It’s fairly cool.
- It’s rumored that Lee Kyu Han was solid as Lee Min Soo however left the collection attributable to private causes. I did get pleasure from him in Sleek Household. Lee Min Soo is now performed by Jung Sang Hoon. Thus far, the character is stuffed with quirk, and I LOVE THAT!
- Primarily based on an internet novel with the identical identify and a webtoon of the present was launched in early 2022.
Everybody bows and scrapes to the supervillain
I’m not fairly midway by means of and I’ve found that AML may very nicely dig me out of my drama stoop. It’s amusing, clever, scary, and simply sufficient fantasy to make me want I might return to my faculty days and begin once more.
I’ve excessive hopes this received’t drag as I close to the midway level. Plus who would not like the concept of adjusting the longer term by going again to their previous with all of the astonishing data? The thoughts boggles.
Must you watch Once more My Life? Heck yeah! With snappy dialogues, intense motion, mind numbing pondering patterns, it’s a curler coaster journey (thus far). I’m quite excited……to be excited once more…….a few drama. Thanks, staff AML.
What about you? Have you ever saved up with Once more My Life? Do you adore it as a lot as I do?
After you die, would you need to return to the top of highschool?
I believe not……
