Mirae’s Choice – 2013 Korean Drama Review

Mirae's Choice - 2013

This is a drama that I had to see, because there’s no way I was missing one of Yoon Eun Hye’s performances. But I have to say that even tho I liked it more than other productions I’m currently watching, this story was kinda bland.

From the starting point, I don’t tend to like time skipping stories, maybe because I think it’s better than stories are totally sci-fi or completely down to earth. The mixture, at least in this case was not what I expected.

Mirae's Choice - 2013

Since these are my first entries, you might wanna know that I don’t start my analysis from a scientific point of view, I will just introduce a little about the story trying not to spoil anything (unless I state it beforehand) and tell you what I think about it, but that doesn’t mean is the holy truth or anything, just an opinion.

I’m scared of saying that I didn’t like one of Eun Hye’s dramas cause I’ve loved her acting for such a long time, but I’m really sorry to state that this drama wasn’t nearly as good as I thought it was gonna be.

From the start, future Mi Rae was annoying and intruding someone else’s life just basing on the fact that she made the wrong choices and completely ruined her life. She could have thought that it was her life, but that didn’t give the right to manipulate her younger self or the people around her. It took me a long time to learn to cope with this character because I had to, I knew she was going to be the entire drama and I didn’t want to quit it, even though the whole story started stating that 32 years old are almost trash and need to go and die. Didn’t like that writers!

Along with the story I started to like the chemistry between main characters, specially between Young Mi Rae and Anchor Kim Shin. As always Yoon Eun Hye is magical, her characters are always warm and fuzzy and this wasn’t the exception. Male characters were really well performed, Lee Dong Gun still has it like he did in When it’s at night, apparently he doesn’t age. *envy*

Yonghwa is adorable and so was his part over here, the little young CEO that falls in love at first sight and tries to conquer someone whose heart is completely taken. Or is it? hehe

All along the story had twists and turns, mostly because of the ethereal future that came to be changed by the annoying ahjumma and its constantly mutating. It had highlights thanks to the wonderful actors and actresses.

At last, I didn’t like the ending, you will know why when you watch it, just because oneself doesn’t spend 16 hours watching something to end like it did, but still I respect it cause, it just makes sense. I only recommend this if you love the actors, otherwise you’re gonna be as annoyed as I am right now.
