Likes: Totally love the story and how it was told. A combination of several pasts and a present. The going back and forth in the timeline to give meaning to every life our heroine once had. The pain, struggles, rejection, defeat, heartbreaks, all of it that Ban Ji Eum had to endure in her present, because she simply remembers everything in her past lives. The emotion is so real, that makes this drama very likeable.
The love that transcends two lifetime. It all started when our heroine met an interesting boy in her 18th life. She was simply drawn to the boy. However, her life got cut short by an accident. She died murmuring to the boy, “See you in my 19th life.” As soon as our heroine reached a certain age and started remembering everything in the past, she looked for the boy. Isn’t that the cutest plot?!
See You in my 19th Life. I even love the title, it’s deep. It sounds like see you later, see you tomorrow, see you whenever, but yes in one lifetime. But see you in my next life, our heroine was so determined that her feelings will be the same. Even the episode titles were so meaningful, like episode 4: The Inability to Forget About The One You Long For. Or Episode 8: Casting One’s Fate Unto The Dice.
Love the cast. Simply good actors in this drama starting with…
Shin Hye Sun as Ban Ji Eum – Shin Hye Sun chooses her roles properly and she definitely knows a good script. Ban Ji Eum is an old soul. She knew what she wanted. She was aggressive towards Moon Seo Ha and that made this character pretty interesting.
Ahn Bo Hyun as Moon Seo Ha – Ahn Bo Hyun is such a versatile actor. He is really into the character. He was so different when I watched him as the annoying rich guy in Itaewon Class. Also he was so into his character in Yumi’s Cells. In this drama, as Moon Seo Ha, aloof and distant but I find him the most handsome and likable.
Ha Yoon Kyung as Yoon Cho Won – Cho Won’s character is just too cute. Can’t be ignored! I loved how she cried like a baby when she was talking to her sister. And her facial expressions whenever she sees he crush, Ha Do Yun.
Ahn Dong Goo as Ha Do Yun – a very quiet character but cares a lot. I understand his hesitation to go for Cho Won. Poor guy, he was bleeding inside. But love when he finally took the courage.
Two love teams. Ban Ji Eum and Moon Seo Ha had a really good chemistry. Their love team would have sufficed to make the drama interesting, but I can’t complain that they added another one. And I love the cute love story of Cho Won and Ha Do Yun as well. That made the whole show much more fun to watch.
The mystery of the first life. Well, this one I didn’t see it coming. I’m still new to the reincarnation thing. So there was a connection already in the first life. Although it wasn’t romantic, but obviously Moon Seo Ha, in his past life had cared for Ban Ji Eum. He wanted to protect her, but couldn’t because she was getting swallowed by her rage. In the end, Moon Seo Ha was the key to end Ban Ji Eum’s curse of remembering her past lives.
First love never dies. That holds true in this drama. Ban Ji Eum’s first love was even from her past life. She desperately searched for him in the next life. And Moon Seo Ha couldn’t also forget his first love, the traces of her, and he was bound to meet her again. And these two souls were just drawn to each other, because of that young love they’ve started.
12 Episodes. I think it was good that way. It would have dragged if they’ve forced it to be 16-episode long.
Sweet ending. I love how Moon Seo Ha took the effort to approach and be near the forgetting Ban Ji Eum. It was the other way around this time. Moon Seo Ha came to her and asked her to date him, like how she did it to her before. So cute!
