Likes: I love supernatural being and this one gives me a “Meet Joe Black” vibe! So totally! Why do they have to look so hot? Brad Pitt, Gong Yoo, Lee Dong Wook and now, Seo in Gook! I knew it, it was something I needed to watch no matter how lacking the script was.
The Story. The idea was awesome although I thought it was poorly executed. (I’ll leave the negative one later for the dislike part.) Doom roaming around doing his job (basically being doom), through an unfortunate event meets our heroine, Tak Dong Kyung, who just received the bad news that she’s dying. Her dying wish to end the world summoned Doom to her doorstep. But wait, she actually didn’t mean that wish. Too late, Doom was there to claim what was supposed to be claimed, and she was left with no choice but surrender. Good thing, it was Doom’s birthday that day and he gave her one wish. Of course she wished not to die but if Doom couldn’t claim her soul, the person she loved most would die on her stead. So she came up with an idea of turning Doom to be the person she loves most! Smart eh? Told ya, it’s Meet Joe Black!
The Leads. Love Park Bo Young. I always watch her dramas but Seo In Gook, I think I watched one drama where he was second lead and I didn’t really warm up to him. Glad, I gave him another chance. I was totally smitten by him as Doom!
Park Bo Young as Tak Dong Kyung – She was so cute and funny here. I love the character and the character name. It’s something you remember for a long time. She also looked gorgeous with her outfits. Love her long hair too. Her teasing personality was quite fun.
Seo In Gook as Myul Mang / Kim Sa Ram – He actually really looked handsome. I love that mole under one of his eyes! I think it makes him more gorgeous. He was cute before but I think he looked much better now that he’s older. His mysterious character Myul Mang must be the icing on the cake. I loved his expressionless looks, so cold, so sexy lol! And I shouldn’t forget, his grayish hair color. It really looked good on him! Thus, he just made it to my list of watchable male leads!
The Chemistry. Park Bo Young and Seo In Gook definitely have an awesome chemistry. I love the kiss in the rain, the almost kiss on the beach, the walk through cherry blossoms, the sunset talk and the wishing-upon-the-stars night. These two make me fall in love!
Second Love Team. It was a completely different story which sometimes too distracting to the main, but nevertheless, a nice and sweet addition.
The House Set. Tak Dong Kyung’s house reflected her personality and so does Myul Mang’s. Having them both combined was awesome. How do you feel coming home to your cute, cozy place with an extension to your boyfriend’s impressive mansion’s living room? Of course with your gorgeous boyfriend in it?
The Mystery of the Butterfly. The deity’s intention was so puzzling. She came at first as someone annoying, meddling with everyone’s life. However, I like how the butterfly story turned out to be.
“False hope is still hope. Fake love is still love.”
“What is frightening is not living to the fullest.”
“The reduction of the universe to one person, and the expansion of one person to a deity. That is love.”
Addicting OST. As the drama ended, I only not miss the characters but also its moving and addicting tracks. Here’s Doom at Your Service OST!
Ending. Getting a happy ending from something that would seem end disastrously is a huge treat. I also got my epilogue bonus!
Dislikes: As what I mentioned above, it was quite a good story but poorly executed. It was lacking explanations. I would have rather have one storyline (Tak Dong Kyung and Doom) to give more details on how everything come into place than switching back and forth between the main and the second loveteam’s storylines. It was so lacking, it didn’t justify the love that broke realms.
I don’t know why Doom was always wearing something too big for himself. Was it supposed to be a fashion statement? I love Tak Dong Kyung’s outfit, they suit her so well, but Doom’s, nah! His winter coats are too big! The only outfit I like on him was the doctor’s gown!
And why were they suddenly in Jeju? Just like that?
