What made me watch the Korean drama “Because this is my first life”?
I was looking for a drama to binge watch. Then I remember seeing those Instagram videos featuring clippings from the dramas. Many people commented that the drama is good and have some reality. So it is always good to see something you can click to. 🙂
How I felt when I saw the first episode of “Because this is my first life”? (First Impression)
Just like the image below, it felt so great and light at the same time. ❤
The characters are so relatable, you will definitely find a character to relate to. 🙂
Yoon Ji Ho is an assistant writer, who after some experience decides to be a freelancer. At the same time she is naive and knows nothing about the world.
Although she is naive, she can still make bold decisions in her life. Like she kissed a stranger on the bus-stop whom she spent just few minutes with, even though she has no experience in dating. (Pretty bold right! 😉 )
I found her character full of positivity and determination. She is a kind of girl who doesn’t stays on the ground for long and gets up even more stronger.
The next character you can relate to is her friends. Yoon Ji Ho friends are really supportive to her. One of her friend is having a bold character who tells Yoon Ji Ho to fight for her rights from her parents, who favour more to their son then their daughter.
The next character is Nam Se Hee.
“I can’t work overnight, I have to feed my cat, else find me a roommate”
Haha! 😂 His character is full of humour. He is honest and says what he have to say, he doesn’t care about what others will say and he rarely smiles.
The plot of the story looks fine, there are a lot of its and bits going on in Yoon Ji Ho’s life, which is quiet interesting to watch. Overall! an enjoyable drama with a mix of humour. 🙂
The drama focuses more on problems people face in their lives and what they do to overcome them. Well! that’s why I’m here, always loved such dramas. ❤
Cinematography was amazing, the drama looked beautiful every minute.
I also liked how Yoon Ji Ho was looking time to time at the camera to explain how messy her life is to the audience.
Would I recommend the drama “Because this is my first life”?
If you are looking for a Korean drama with reality and comedy or a drama having a character you can relate to, then this is the drama. Still..
Four reasons to watch it~
1. The Characters
A girl who knows nothing, learns new things, living by herself for the first time and decides to be a freelancer. Isn’t it something we always like to see? 😉
A man who don’t like people easily, ends up liking his roommate very much and who have theories for everything happening with people’s life.
2. Sense of Humour
Since it is a rom-com kdrama, the drama holds a good sense of humour. I literally smiled and laughed throughout the show.
3. Combination of fiction and reality
Although the drama revolves around real life problems, but still it has many fictional aspects which only adds fun to the drama.
4. Watch it if you have a cat
Nam Se Hee has a very cute cat 😻 and he often talks a lot about cats.
So I would say! Go for it. 😊
