49 Days: Episode 19

Oh man, I think I’m out of tears. 49 Days, you owe me tears! Like, a bucketload of them — I need to rehydrate. Drama, I’ll accept my payment in lattes, please.

How can a story with such sad elements be so satisfying? We start wrapping up our story threads, but the drama still manages to keep one step ahead of us, with new curveballs thrown into the mix just when you think everything’s all resolved.

EPISODE 19 RECAP

Ji-hyun gets her three tears, and the Scheduler marvels, “Wow, you must’ve lived your life pretty usefully after all.” She’s in shock, saying, “But there’s nobody who’d cry for me,” but the Scheduler reminds her how changing their minds (and hearts) are what humans are all about.

He teases, “Don’tcha wanna know whose tears they are?” But she tells him not to tell her: “If I knew, I think I’d only love these three people.” Or, put another way, she might harden against everyone who isn’t those three. The Scheduler approves her wise choice.

Just as she’s about say her goodbyes to Yi-soo, he starts to fade from her sight, although it’s really Spirit Ji-hyun who disappears, leaving the Scheduler behind.

And then…Ji-hyun wakes up!! Eeeeeee!

She opens her eyes to see her mother and Seo-woo sobbing over her, and it’s Dad who enters and sees that Ji-hyun’s awake. Aw, their happiness is so sweet.

At Heaven, Manager Oh comes upon Yi-kyung as she’s leaving, surprised when she tells him that she has no reason to stay anymore. She moves back to her place, which seems sadly empty without her ghost friend anymore.

Manager Oh calls Kang, who’s just landed and driving back home, to say worriedly that they must’ve calculated the days wrong. Worst. Phone call. EVER!

Okay, here’s where I know I’ve got a sadistic streak because knowing that Ji-hyun is safe and sound, I’m giggling like a little fool at how Kang is gonna have to stew a little in his misery — that’s what you get for jetting off in secret without so much as a goodbye! But Mom calls Kang right away to let him know that Ji-hyun’s awake, and I’m actually a little disappointed he didn’t have to suffer a little more.

Ji-hyun’s recovery defies medical explanation, and she undergoes tests. Kang arrives as she’s in the exam room, and tells Dad the added good news that his father agreed to invest in the company. Her parents are stunned and grateful.

Tests complete, Kang comes by again, entering the room looking thrilled to see her…until he registers that Ji-hyun isn’t thrilled back. She says bluntly, “Han Kang, long time no see. But why are you here?” She asks why In-jung and Min-ho aren’t here, and Mom trades uncomfortable glances with Seo-woo.

Mom, Seo-woo, and Kang step outside to decide that they shouldn’t upset Ji-hyun, and will keep the news of her father’s surgery and business troubles a secret from her. Mom assures Kang that she’ll tell her how much Kang did for them, but he says sadly that that’s not important. Poor crushed Kang-ah. Buck up. Maybe there’s a cure for otherworldly amnesia.

Min-ho continues with his plans o’ destruction, getting Haemido ready for takeover and readying to resign tomorrow. (Dude, your cover’s been blown, and bigtime — why the wait? Are you so OCD that you have to keep to the original timetable, even when Dad already knows he’s harboring a viper in his midst? “NO! The schedule says tomorrow!”) Plus, news of his villainy has spread throughout the building, so that he attracts scornful stares from other employees. Another businessman makes a disdainful comment about how he doesn’t even know his fiancee has woken up.

But instead of heading for the hospital, Min-ho goes to Yi-kyung’s place, although he didn’t expect it to be occupied. Yi-kyung tells him flatly that Ji-hyun is no longer connected to her and demands he go, leaving his key behind.

Ji-hyun’s parents fill her in on what went on during her coma, each joking that they spent more time glued to her bedside than the other. Heh. It’s the kind of thing you can joke about when you’re so giddy with relief that just about everything is funny and wonderful.

Ji-hyun still finds Kang’s presence odd, but her parents assure her how devoted and helpful he was, and she concedes that he stuck by his sense of friendly loyalty — something she’s surprised by, but also dismisses as out of character. She tells him he can go now, treating him like a distant acquaintance, and he excuses himself.

At Heaven, he admits to Manager Oh that although he should be happy, he can’t help being saddened that Ji-hyun has no memory of their recent time together. He mulls over their exchanges during the past 47 days and their growing connection, and how he told Ji-hyun to tell him everything she wanted to say after she woke up.

In her lonely apartment, Yi-kyung looks at her old calendar marking Yi-soo’s passing and wonders sadly, “When are you coming? Come quickly.” It’s sad how Yi-kyung is the only one for whom Ji-hyun’s recovery means even more gloominess, because she’s now without companionship and without hope. All she can do is sit and wait for Yi-soo to come get her, which is pretty depressing. What she can’t see is that Yi-soo sits next to her, unable to do a thing.

In the morning, Kang visits Yi-kyung to tell her the good news of Ji-hyun’s recovery — and also the bad news that she probably won’t remember Yi-kyung, which makes her alternately happy and disappointed.

He thanks her for all her help, and offers her a job in his restaurant, since she’s now jobless. Ha, how great would that be? — it’s a familiar scenario, but just off enough to be strangely uncomfortable. Alas, she declines, answering that she’s waiting for somebody. She retrieves the bracelet from her dresser, telling him that Ji-hyun asked her to return it to Kang, as it’s his mother’s. He’d never known it came from Mom, and as Yi-kyung doesn’t know the story, she tells him to ask Ji-hyun about it.

She conveys the rest of Ji-hyun’s message: “She asked me to say that she’s sorry that she just received from you [without giving back], and that if not for you, she wouldn’t have been able to endure that time.”

Min-ho gets the bad news that Daddy Shin has come up with funds, which completely takes him by surprise. His investing partner blames this on Min-ho, saying that being named beneficiary in the will made him deviate from The Plan out of greed. Not untrue, those words.

Min-ho calls his mole at Heaven, Ki-joon, asking how the funds came in. Ki-joon tells him cheerily that Kang got an investor in the States, and at Min-ho’s angry exclamation (“Why didn’t you report that?!”) he says innocently, “Why should I?” Ki-joon explains that he isn’t that greedy, and that he’s plenty capable of advancing in his career without Min-ho’s support, thankyouverymuch! Hmph!

Min-ho then gets a call from the district prosecutor saying that they’ve received a petition regarding Min-ho, requesting his presence tomorrow morning.

In-jung sits waiting for Min-ho at that lunch spot, having asked him to meet her, and when he doesn’t show, she sits there eating alone, crying.

Meanwhile, Min-ho drinks with his driver friend Jin-young, bitter at his impending demise. His friend tells him gently that he can’t stand to see him falling apart, and he’ll be quitting too. Min-ho says he won’t die like this.

In-jung comes to Min-ho’s apartment in the morning to say her goodbye — she’s returning to Jinan. She tells him to call if he needs anything, and apologizes. He says bleakly, “You’re making it impossible for me to even say I’m sorry.” Which…is the stupidest logic ever (you can JUST SAY YOU’RE SORRY), but whatever. Sociopathic villains do tend to have their own rules of what is and isn’t appropriate behavior.

Kang drops by the hospital with more pink roses, ignoring Ji-hyun’s perplexed look and saying, “I’m going to come by every day, so you’d better get used to it.” Yay, adorably decisive Kang is back!

Mom tests the waters by asking if Ji-hyun remembers her friend Jung-eun — er, Song Yi-kyung — and how she left her seal in her care. Ji-hyun recognizes the name of her club friend, but has no recollection about the seal, so Mom hurriedly lets the matter drop.

After a physical therapy session, Kang takes her through the garden. She asks why he’s being so attentive, saying that it makes her feel uncomfortable. He asks how she feels to be alive (“It’s wonderful”) and says he feels the same, then asks how she spent her 47 days: “Did you just sleep? Did you have dreams?”

She says, “Even if I did, why do I have to tell you?” He asks, “Did I ever appear in them?” She retorts, “Why would you?” Hm, she’s being a touch defensive at his line of questioning. I wonder…

Annnnd…. there’s Lurker Min-ho, lurking yet again. Any more of that and he’ll have to get a license and pay taxes on it, for all the mileage he’s getting out of his lurkitude.

Ji-hyun has been pressing to see In-jung, wondering why she hasn’t been by. Mom makes up a few excuses, but finally she and Seo-woo find In-jung and tell her that Ji-hyun is insistent to see her. They want her to drop by briefly and act like all is normal between them, which is a prospect In-jung can’t bear, unable to face her ex-friend.

In-jung begs to be excused, but Mom tells her she acted plenty well for two years before the accident — surely she can extend the act for a moment — and Seo-woo drags her with her.

Meanwhile, Ji-hyun asks if Kang is truly planning to skip out on work every day to come to the hospital. Ah, but she forgets that Kang can magically run businesses without actually, yunno, doing any work, and he replies yes.

She tells him she wishes he’d work harder at his architecture, because he has special talent that he’s just wasting. Her comment actually lands with him, as though he hadn’t considered she’d feel that way, and he replies, “I have nobody to show it to, or share it with. If I worked diligently at designing, would you watch me?”

Alas, no time for a response, because Mom enters and announces In-jung’s arrival. Ji-hyun asks for a moment alone, so Kang escorts Mom out and leaves the ladies to talk.

In-jung enters with head bowed, afraid to confront Ji-hyun, who says:

Ji-hyun: “While I was sleeping, I had a dream. On my engagement day, my shoe broke. I kept seeing you taking your shoes off for me. You took off your shoes unconsciously and ran barefoot. In that moment, you’d taken them off for me.”
In-jung: “What are you saying?”
Ji-hyun: “They say that shoes are a woman’s pride, but in that moment you threw your pride aside for me. Forgetting the engagement ceremony, you thought of me first. Because I was your friend.”

Ji-hyun closes her eyes as they start tearing up, growing oddly emotional for someone who doesn’t know anything of In-jung’s backstabby ways. Or…does she?

She sends In-jung away to sob her misery alone.

Yi-soo watches over Yi-kyung impatiently, dying to meet her but restricted by his one-week penalty. He curses his mean granny sunbae, only to get a summons.

He whines and complains before she informs him that he’ll be allowed to meet Yi-kyung tomorrow, since today is the end of his 5-year tenure. He points out his one-week penalty, and she retorts that he’s required to be a Scheduler for another week — but they never said he had to wait to meet Yi-kyung.

As Yi-kyung looks over her old letters and cards from Yi-soo, a new one floats down from above and lands in front of her: “An invitation from Song Yi-soo-nim.” Realizing that the time has come, she gets ready with anticipation in the morning, using the beauty products that Ji-hyun left for her.

Yi-soo waits at the appointed meeting place, and they approach each other slowly. With a smile, he tells her, “Song Yi-kyung, long time no see. You haven’t changed at all.”

She lifts a hand to his face and confirms that he’s real, then throws herself into his arms, sobbing, “Why did you come only now?” He answers, “Because this was my time to come. I couldn’t come until now.”

He asks her to do as he wishes for the day, without complaint, and takes her someplace. Which turns out to be, macabrely enough, the site of his accident.

He explains that back then, he’d been full of excitement over this new world, making music, and felt cramped by his old life. He’d thought the issue wasn’t something they could talk out through conversation, so he decided to show her how he felt — but while he had fun with his music and hanging out with girls, “You were like my hometown.” And that’s why he bought a proposal ring.

The rings are, miraculously enough, still buried in the dirt nearby, and he retrieves them, putting them on their fingers, then takes her to his next destination: an amusement park.

They’d never had the money to come here, but he reminds her that he’d promised to bring her for her birthday. Since Yi-soo has no more human money than he did back then, I’m going to assume he’s pulled some celestial strings to get in. They spend the night doing the usual amusement-park activities, and there’s something very sweet about them on this very common date for the first time ever, and seeing how happy they both are.

Next, he takes her back to her place and asks her to go shopping for groceries, because he misses her cooking. She’s nervous to be separated, but he assures her that he won’t leave this time without a goodbye

In her absence, he cleans and redoes her room for her — which is either the fastest remodel job ever or the slowest grocery shopping trip known to man. Dr. Noh drops by, alarmed at the signs of new tenancy, though Yi-soo tells him Yi-kyung hasn’t moved. In his amusingly rude punkass way (hee), Yi-soo advises the doctor to stay away for two days: “If you leave right away, I’ll tell her you came by. If you dawdle, I might not.” Dr. Noh has the vague feeling he’s seen him before, but can’t quite place it, which isn’t surprising since he’s the dumbest doctor ever.

When Yi-kyung comes back, she almost doesn’t even register the pretty new room because she’s immediately afraid Yi-soo has gone. She’s relieved when he comes out of the bathroom, but asks why he bothered with the room when she’s going to leave with him. He doesn’t correct her, and just says that he prefers to stay in clean quarters.

That night, Yi-soo looks over Yi-kyung as she sleeps, like he’s memorizing her face. Oh, you’re already breaking my heart, and nothing’s even happened yet. But it’s one of those disasters you can see from a mile away and are helpless to avoid, and unable to look away from.

In the morning, as they go out for a walk, Yi-kyung keeps staring at him, amazed that he’s still here. In contrast to her, Yi-soo’s in a darker mood and reminds her, “Still, I’m a dead person.”

And then he gets to the point: “I waited five years to meet you. To tell you that I loved you, that I never for one moment had feelings for anyone else, to say ‘Let’s marry.’ But not now — the things I want to tell you have changed.”

He untangles their intertwined fingers and says, “I loved you until then. Starting from now, I won’t love you. Because I didn’t want to leave you with only hurt, I waited for five years, wanting you to forget me and be happy.”

Yi-kyung protests, trying to hold his hand again, saying, “Don’t say that, Yi-soo. I’m going to go with you.” He tells her that they can’t go together, and that even if she chose death in order to be with them, they’d be apart: “That’s what death is.” Cruelly true.

She says she can’t endure living alone, but he asks her to do it anyway, for him: “I have to let you go to be happy in the next life. If you’re unhappy, my heart twists and I won’t rest easy. I’ll be born as a bad-tempered guy who can’t receive love, who can’t love either, who lives unhappily.”

He orders her to throw away the ring, which no longer has meaning, which only existed to clear up their misunderstanding. He takes his ring off, despite her pleas, and throws it into the water.

Yisoo: “You know now how precious you were to me. You weren’t thrown away, you were the most important person to me. An incredible person. And so, you’ll become someone else’s incredibly precious person. Promise me that for my sake, you’ll be happy. So that I can leave this world without regrets, so I can start over in the next life. Yi-kyung, be happy for my sake.”

With that, he pulls the ring off her finger, and this time she doesn’t stop him when he throws it into the water.

He says, “I’m thankful for meeting you, and I was happy.” She cries, “I’m sorry — I only ever received from you, and never paid you back for anything.”

Yi-soo tells her, “Pay it back to the person who loves you. Instead of to me, give it to him.”

He kisses her, then turns and walks away, holding back his own tears. Yi-kyung sobs as she watches him go, until he finally fades away into the backdrop.

Oh, gah. What’s this blurring my vision? How can something so inevitable be so heartbreaking? OH SO SAD.

Min-ho visits his mother’s hospital, watching her through the window and thinking, “Mother, I’d meant to come for you once I’d made a success of myself. I’m sorry.” It’s here that he’s accosted by two police officers with an arrest warrant.

He asks for a brief moment to see his mother first, and asks her urgently whether she’s tucked away the documents his friend Jin-young delivered. He tells her to not give them to anybody until he comes back for them, but she looks at him blankly, not recognizing him.

Finally, it clicks for her and she greets him warmly, though she’s still locked in the past. He can’t help shedding tears as she exclaims, “I knew you’d become an important person!” It really lands when she cries, “I knew you’d be different from your father.” At that, she embraces him and he breaks down, like a lost little boy.

GUH, and here I thought I was all cried out. Who’d’ve thought I’d have any tears left for the dastardly villain? It doesn’t make him any more likable, but it’s strangely satisfying to see him emotionally vulnerable (not just jealous) on the way down. Unrepentant villains can be so one-dimensional.

After that, he’s led away by the police, and looks up at Mom through the window. The way he covers his handcuffs from view has an oddly heart-twisty effect. And then, when he’s interrogated by police, he denies that the informant at the company was In-jung. Looks like he’s taking the fall on his own. Well, it’s too late to earn him a get-out-of-jail-free pass, but at least it’s better to grow a sense of honor late than never.

Yi-kyung thinks over Yi-soo’s last request for her to live on happily, sighing, “I want to, but…” as though it’s just beyond her. Then she remembers Ji-hyun asking her to a similar thing — that, in moments of difficulty, she should think of Ji-hyun and live on.

That recollection takes Yi-kyung to the hospital, but she belatedly recalls Kang’s warning that Ji-hyun can’t remember her. She turns to leave, but Ji-hyun steps out of her room and sees her there.

And says, “Unni.”

Yi-kyung is surprised as Ji-hyun continues, “Yi-kyung unni, did you come to see me?” She steps forward and grabs Yi-kyung in a hug.

I KNEW IT! She remembers! Muahahaha, amnesia angst is for naught!

As they sit together, Yi-kyung asks, “You remember me, but not Han Kang?”

Yet Ji-hyun’s reaction says otherwise, and Yi-kyung notes it. She wonders why Ji-hyun would pretend not to remember him — to which Ji-hyun answers, “Because I’m going to die again soon.”

WHAT?

 
COMMENTS

Ooh, way to make this interesting! We were all expecting her not to remember, and that development has been worked into the plot along the way, so it’s pretty clever of them to turn that expectation right on its head. As to WHY she’s dying again: My theory is that she can feel that something’s gone awry, and the presence of her memories is an ominous sign. Especially since the Scheduler has told her numerous times that it would disturb the balance of the whole life-afterlife divide for a living person to know the secrets of the Hereafter. Ergo, I must not be long for this world if I’m allowed to keep my knowledge of the secrets. The logic’s a little convoluted, but makes a certain sense.

Now the question is how they’re going to renege on that logic satisfactorily — once you bring it up, you can’t just wave your hand and go, “Oh well, she’s alive, never mind!” And there’s the culmination of the whole Kang/Ji-hyun romance to look forward to. Finally! I feel like I’ve been such a patient little girl, now won’t you please give me the payoff I’ve been so eagerly awaiting? This episode was pretty thin with the Kang/Ji-hyun storyline, which I might have minded more had not the Scheduler/Yi-kyung story been so satisfying. Now that that’s wrapped up, I’m antsy for the rest.

Speaking of which: Man, never has a doomed relationship engaged me or satisfied me as much as the Yi-soo/Yi-kyung one. There’s something inherently sad about splitting up a couple in love, but in so many dramas the focus is on getting them back together, either happily or tragically. Even in the tearjerkers, there’s often some mechanism indicating that they’re going to reunite in the afterlife, or maybe a future life. But we rarely see a couple still in love, post-death, having to move on. The problem was never “How do we reunite the lovers?” but “How do we help Yi-kyung return to the land of the living?” And also, how to get the Scheduler out of his limbo and on to whatever comes next.

I loved his goodbye speech to Yi-kyung, which was full of love at every turn but also realistic and wise and also very, very heartbreaking. I like that they pointed out that going together in death isn’t some romantic way to stay together forever, which is the message we often see in other narratives — but that death is death. It’s an end to what came before, and you have to cut your ties cleanly to be able to enter the next phase. So in that way it’s just as much for Yi-soo’s benefit as it is for Yi-kyung’s that they accept that they had a really good thing, and that he adored her, and that she still has lots of time ahead of her to find new love. Aw, tear. It’s just so goddamned sweet.

My spoiler theory (or is it just predictable and I'm only now catching on)
So Yi Kyung and Kang will be the ones who understand each other over losing their first loves... and THEY are the two who Yi Soo and Ji Hyun want to get together!

The scheduler's last assignment is Ji hyun I bet. :) hmmm.

Hi! This is my first time commenting here but I've been lurking for a long time. I really want to thank you for recapping 49 Days! At first, I was hesitant with watching this. However, reading the recaps made me realize that this is an awesome show!

But reading this during work wasn't probably a good idea. I had to stop myself from crying so many times, or else I'll look crazy O.O

How can this be so heartbreaking!!!!! More tissue!!!

Yi-soo and Yi-kyung's story drove me teary crazy! I heard my heart break into pieces when Yi-soo was tracing her face as if trying to memorize it... it's just so sad.

I knew for sure that Ji-hyun remembers after she spoke to In-jung and when she got teary-eyed talking to Kang. What would Kang do now?

How could a last episode bring more questions? Maybe a sign of a well-made drama...

saw this from other site, just want to share with you guys :D

This is an amusing article written by 守厚※幸福 on kdrama. Read it in the original Chinese if you can. If not, you’ll just have to read our translation.

申智賢,你真是個夠狠的女人。

Shin Ji-Hyun, you are a cruel woman.

十年前一個燦爛如花的笑容讓那個叫韓江的男人十年無法忘情,千里迢迢從美國回來只為找你。 而你呢,和你命中註定的男人訂婚,華麗地演繹你的幸福,還死皮賴臉地非得拉人家做什麼伴郎。

Ten years ago your brilliant smile made a man called Han Kang unable to forget you all these ten years. He returns all the way from the U.S.A. just to find you. And you, you become engaged to the man in your destiny. You blatantly flaunt your happiness, and you even have the nerve to make him serve as best man [in your wedding].

老天爺都看不下去了,你出了車禍。

Even the Heavens can’t stand it anymore. You have a traffic accident.

車禍第二天,你換了副皮囊,繼續騷擾那個可憐的男人,什麼摳手指、變魔術、海帶湯、彈鋼琴,一路下來直到把人家搞到亂七八糟,好不容易確認原來是你,人家為了你,眼淚也流了,把你爸爸的公司也救了,能做的不可能做的都為你做了,好了,你翻臉不認人,兩眼一睜乾脆什麼都不記得了。

The next day after the traffic accident, you change your form and continue to harass the poor man. All that twisting of fingers, performing magic, seaweed soup, playing the piano, and so on make him all confused. And then he finally figures out it is you. For you, he has shed tears, he has saved your father’s company, he has done everything that can be done and even that which cannot be done. OK, you don’t recognize any of these. You open your eyes and you don’t remember anything at all.

申智賢你夠狠,原來是欺負人的,但不要這樣這麼欺負人呀。

Shin Ji-Hyun, you are really cruel. You are a bully, but you cannot bully people like this.

韓江啊韓江,你上輩子到底做了什麼對不起申智賢這女人的事了,這輩子這樣現世現報啊!

Han Kang ah Han Kang, what did you do to this woman Shin Ji-Hyun in your previous life that you have to repay her like this in this life!

再加把勁吧,趕緊把這麼狠的女人娶回家吧!這麼狠的女人除了你也沒人敢要了。

Work harder. Hurry up and marry this woman! Such a cruel woman no one dares to have except you.

LOL! Now that you pointed that out, only now I realized that Hang Kang is 'hangkang' in my native tongue too! Hope we won't be broken beyond repair.

Hmmm..I am trying to guess which guy will end up with Yi Kyung. Mr. Dr or Mr. Architect-cum-restauratuer?

or maybe the ending plot will be crazier than crazy?

maybe could happen...but it would be a waste for Yi-soo to give the whole speech he gave for the opposite to happen. Maybe, if Ji-hyun does die...Yi-kyung and Han Kang might eventually end up together.

Scheduler has an extra week of penalty. In which, the last person he escort will be JH. Probably from a relapse of her condition since her waking up was a miracle anyway.

Thank you so much for the recap. I couldn't believe that I was sobbing just from reading the recap.

I really like how this writer thinks. Not pedestrian, at all.

I would be satisfied with the ending if Ji Hyun was Yi soo's last soul. The story would come full circle if the end scene was Ji Hyun riding the elevator. That would tie everything together for me with the life and death theme that this drama so brillantly captured.

Oh my gosh! I just watched the unsubbed version. Soo glad to have read JB's recap beforehand. Now am hanging out for the subbed version and the final episode! Will there be a massive bow(happy ending) on the box(show) or will we have to wait for 49 Days, The Sequel?

I have to say, at the rate this drama is going, I am loss at how they are going to end it. One thing is for sure--I feel just as abandoned as Yi Kyung did when Yi Soo left her for the last time. Especially at the prospect that when she DOES die, he won't be the scheduler anymore to take her up the elevator like she thought he would. They really did part forever. After 19 Episodes...T.T

Gah, why does this drama have to be so tear-jerking???

So I've pretty much been an anonymous reader here for awhile now and I've read (and loved) a LOT of your recaps here in dramabeans... but a lot of the times for previous dramas, I've been either only reading your recaps and not watching, watching way back when and then reading recaps again, or watching first, recaps later (within a few days)

But this is like the first time the curiosity has nagged me so much that I'm watching the raw while reading your recaps (as your recaps are so damn fast!!!!). I usually can wait for dramas until subs come out but for some reason... 49 days is wayyy too awesome for me to wait.

with that said, now my eyes are kinda puffy, my nose stuffy, and my face all red. But the heart is so sadly satisfied with a hint of curiosity for tomorrow's episode.

Off to watch something funny now!

Oh right! THANK YOU!!!!!!!

Waaah!!!!

So unexpected. Best Episode to date (and I haven't even actually seen the episode)~ How could the recap make me cry so much? This drama is definitely in my top 3 (which is really like my top six because I have to kdramas in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place). Loved the whole Yi-kyung&Yi-soo/Scheduler goodbye scene...had me bawling worst than any baby imagined. Also, what?!? She remembers? Didn't see that coming or rather didn't see her dying "again" (coming?)--> happening. Seems like the writers set it up so Yi-kyung and Kang to maybe end up together...possibly? Maybe? No?...Just a thought~

And looking back at the screen cap of Yi-soo walking away from Yi-Kyung...It occured to me that is was not only a goodbye to Yi-kyung...but, for me atleast, a goodbye to his duty as being the scheduler...do I sound too cheesy? Aah why couldn't they just cop out and pull the same move as the writer of the movie Postman to Heaven? Now there was a happy ending? But i know that they couldn't do that and it would be a lame way to end the drama that has done so well thus far. Sorry for the long rant! Can't wait for the last episode!

I feel sad for Han Kang. I could almost feel his pain and disappointment. And I think it's more hard for Ji Hyun that she has to pretend. :(

Oh I think I'm gonna cry when I see the video.. Thank You so much Javabeans for super fast recap :D

after reading YS & YK part i couldnt stop my tears from falling down T.T when i saw the piccy at the top i was SOOOO happy that they were finally together but >..< lol for some reason eventhough he is cute i dont want him and YK together ;P or maybe they will show Kang and YK living their own lives happily or sth like that..

PS: does anyone remember the episode when YS was explaining to a new soul reaper or sth X.X on how to use that mobile.. n when he was looking through it he had kind of shocked expression :S i guess he saw Ji Hyun name there :S i am not sure but i just have this feeling :S

You know what's going to happen next ? -JiHyun is the last person scheduled to go with Yi-Soo . I knew she'd come back alive for her dad and to see to it she gets her justice .

Han Kang will go for Yi-Kyung .Their courtship is something to look forward to.

Min-Ho because he did not implicate In Jung means he now understood who is meant for him after he served his term .

How did I know this ? Look at the positioning of the main poster and you will know who will end with whom .

Kang-ahhhhhh (small sad voice)

This show really shocks with its unexpected twists. Kudos to the scriptwriter! Just when I thought I could predict what's coming - MH goes to jail, IJ goes away for a fresh start, YK learns to live again and maybe even hooks up with Dr Noh Brainer, Kang-ah and Ji Hyun end up together - the final moment makes me gasp. Ji Hyun is going to die? But in a way, her death would be the ultimate twist that would lift this drama from Good to Unforgettable. And it would tie all the loose ends together, and pay tribute to the two lead stars, Kang-ah and YK. So what we may get in the next ep may be: Ji Hyun dies, and Kang-ah is devastated (oh, I'm crying just thinking of this....so sad). He finds solace with YK who is also lonely but at peace now. They'll form a strong and lasting friendship together, forged by their connection to Ji Hyun. I do not envisage any love developing, for I believe Kang-ah will remain true to his first, last and only love (oh, I'm tearing again,so so sad....why can't Kang-ah get a happy ending?). YK end up with Dr Noh Brainer? Maybe, out of loneliness, one day. Kang-ah end up with YK? Never. He's a man who loves once, and only once in his life. And when he loves, it's a love that lasts forever. He's given all his self and his fiercely guarded, all-encompassing love to Ji Hyun, and he has none left for YK or anybody else. Oh lord, I'm crying again....

And I think we should note the significance of Ji Hyun going to die and not DYING. Which means her impending death is going to be totally sudden and unexpected. Maybe Min Ho will escape and exact his final revenge on the world through Ji Hyun. He barges into hospital and kills her as a final defiant act? And the reason she can remember her 49 days is cos she's going to die....I find her memories so ominous. They are a foreboding of evil to come.

I don't think that HK never loving again is in line with the theme of the drama: that you cannot stop death but you can keep death from stopping you. In other words: even if you lose someone there is a chance for you to love again; death doesn't have to stop you in your tracks. The person you lost would probably want you to go on/move on with your life like YS wanted for YK. If JH dies she would probably want HK to move on and love again rather than being miserable like YK was after losing YS. And who would be a better candidate for someone for him to love than YK. JH likes her unni and would probably be happy knowing that HK was able to go on with his life, like YS wanted YK to do so he could rest in peace.

Maybe the final name on the Scheduler/YS's list was JH's name. The day of her accident she wasn't supposed to die so she was given the 49 days for a chance to live again. But no one ever said how long she would live if she got her 3 tears. If she got her 3 tears, she would live again UNTIL it was her scheduled time to die. It was never stated that her scheduled time to die was years fron now. Maybe she wasn't supposed to die the day of her accident but soon after. Still it would totally suck if we went on this emotional roller coaster ride only to have her die anyway. But if she does die then the writers should have YK/HK get together. They match, have great chemistry, and share a similar situation: having lost someone but given one more chance to say goodbye.

to me it makes sence, because there is no other explanation. Why would she declaire that she will dy, if she won`t. Maybe she had an unknown disease or something like that.....,
Although I don`t like the way how things for Kang and Ji Hyun will develop, I have to say I also didn`t like the way how things for Yi Soo and Yi Kyung developed also....
-
So we can start again to discuss about the whole plot....
-
Is this about Ji Hyuns life, or Yi Kyungs life or Hang Kangs or In Jungs or Min Ho`s or her parents, and some how ..don`t need to think about Yi Soo because he was already dead in the beginning of this show..???
-
I think what they want to say is , live your life without regrets.., so love a person if you have the chance....and if he is gone , leave the pain with the dead person and start a new life....
-
But those 49 days were not only for her to say farewell to her parents and friends, it was also a way for her to pay those people back who deceived her .(Of course with the help of others ) And she was able to bring others back to their sences like Min Ho and In Jung and Yi Kyung and of course Kang, saving the company ...
Although it seems to be a little harsh and cruel, her death or her struggling to live brought others a lot benefits.....
If there wouldn`t be those 49 days there would happen only bad things like,
Min Ho would gain the company,
she would learn about their affair and would collapse...
She wouldn`t be able to trust an other person again ....
-
So in the end, it would be great if she could live ater this 49 days penealty but even if not, I think she won`t have regrets like she would have if she would dy right inthis accident.

Ohhh gosh I just had a thought! A lot of you guys here are speculating that, if JH were to die, HK would end up with YK...well from the writer's hints, it does seem like JH will die but I think there's a high possibility that YK will end up with the doctor and HK with Seowoo! Honestly I really hope that would be the case instead of getting HK and YK together...that would just seem too weird wouldn't it? Wouldn't HK still be reminded of JH when he's with YK? And wouldn't YK think back to all of JH's memories with HK in her body (YK's) if she were t. End up with HK? I don't think they would ever be able to love eachother completely and wholeheartedly. On the other hand, the doctor, no matter how incompetent he is, has been there for YK throughout the whole drama and Seowoo has been in love with HK since forever so it would make much more sense the both YK and HK would see the good in the doc and seowoo respectively and eventually find happiness with them. I think this ending would wrap up the drama quite well because we would get the "realistic" ending showing us the natural path of life with the schedule and JH dying but we'll still get a bit of romance and optimism as HK and YK find love for the second time....and this drama was aol about second chances was it not? I just don't think I would be able to accept and ending where HK and YK get together...sure the actors have a lot of chemistry but plot wise...it sort of goes against the great love the HK had for JH, even while in YK's body!

Agree with you Kat. Just feels wrong, doesn't it, having a HK-YK ending? Cos I feel HK's love for JH is the core of this show, as is YK and Scheduler's love. That love never dies, even with death, and that HK and YK's love for their beloveds can never be replaced by new loves. If they have a YK-HK ending, or a HK-SW ending, I'd be disappointed. It's the strength of HK and YK's love that makes me like this show so much. I'd rather HK and YK remain single and friends than together in the end. I'm a romantic and I want them to stay true to their loves.

Yaaa, I'm not happy about her dying!!!

I thought that during Kang helping Yi Kyung they would fall for eachother...
Like a cure for Yi Kyung and cure for Han Kang ....
-
In the end this could still happen, but it is not how I thought it will go on....
-
To me it is still unfair :)
I mean Ji Hyung wouln`t fall for Hang Kang if she wouldn`t see him through Yi Kyung. I mean his real self!
To me this was one of the main reasons why Ji Hyun in YK-body fell for him. Because when she first saw Min Ho in Kangs place where he was drunk, she absolutely ignored Kang and tried to help Min Ho getting in the car.
After realizing what was going on and how she was deceived it is easy to fell for a person who is always helping you.
-
This was my reason why I thougt she doesn`t deserve his love.
-
But I thougt it is O.K. if she will forget everything what happend during this 49 days and begin a new relationship after waking up.
-
And now I think, Hang Kang and Yi Kyung both loved Ji Hyun in different ways.
The tears are the proof.
So there won`t be jeleousy between them and they will fully understand eachother . The next is both of them were kind of orphants so they will nees eachother comfort.
I am not sure what kind of relationship this could bring...
Since YK made up her mind to let go of YS, maybe she will be ready for a new relationship, but I am not sure about Kang.....
Will he see always Ji Hyun in YK or not?
Maybe after he talked with Ji Hyun he will not see any commons again...and will be able to differentiate....

Reading your beautiful recap, JB, was bittersweet. On the one hand, I am happy about the resolution for the Song couple -- their separation due to YS's untimely death is cruel, true, but like you said, cruelly true. Loss, pain, acceptance, healing, moving on -- we've all had to deal with these in our own lives, and I am glad that a kdrama has given us a heartrending, but lovely exposition of how resilient human beings are, wonderfully acted by LYW and JIW. It teaches us that letting go doesn't mean forgetting, and that we all have the capacity to love again no matter how painful a loss we have sustained. I am happy for YK -- she's now slowly regaining a sure footing back into this world, a world without YS, yes, but a world that holds so many wonderful possibilities for her nonetheless.

As for JH and HK -- you have pointed out early on that this drama is about parallels, and reverse parallels, and I think that the writer is forging on with that for the last episode. The possibility of JH dying doesn't elicit as negative a reaction in me as some of the commenters, because I am that confident about writer-nim's writing. Pursuing parallels, I believe it possible that ultimately, JH's 49 Days was a tool not only to set things right with MH and IJ and save JH's dad's company from their betrayal, it was also a vehicle for HK and JH to resolve their big past misunderstanding and come to the realization that they loved each other, in a similar fashion that it has happened to the Song couple. This revelation of the truth -- for both JH/HK and YS/YK, now leaves the two people who will be left on earth -- HK and YK, FREE to love again, comforted by the thought that they were once loved fiercely, and have reciprocated the love as much. This may require a time jump, but a HK-YK ending is something that will leave me smiling --hopeful, optimistic, and reveling in the wonderment that is this drama. If this scenario happens, I believe that my ultimate take-away from this drama is this -- that there are second chances, not always with the same person, but as intense and beautiful as the first.

This Show ROCKS MY WORLD. :)

Thanks, guys, for your kind words. Honestly, tears were falling on my keyboard as I wrote my comments above -- I may never be able to approximate the pain that YK felt when she lost YS -- but I bore witness to a true to life love story that was so strong and so doomed that I drew from that when writing. All my emotions came bursting forth unabated from the moment YK laid eyes on YS again.

49 Days, in many ways, is like a tie that binds us all, doesn't it? We may remain anonymous to each other for the rest of our lives, but I feel like everyone here who have shared their thoughts, exchanged ideas and had their most educated guesses about the next plot development thwarted by the awesome writer of this drama, have become kindred spirits because of 49 Days. And I am so grateful to JB and GF for making this forum possible.

Much love from Manila. :)

i thought it was obvious that ji-hyun remembered at least some things when her mother mentioned song yi-kyung and ji-hyun explained that she was a club friend. i've been skimming the episodes so i may have missed something? i know they went to high school around the same area, but they weren't acquainted any other way before the accident... and of course as the episode progressed we got more hints.

oh man i cried during the yi-kyung yi-soo goodbye scene, and i never cry...

Has anyone else noticed that Yi Soo's 5 years is up 49 days after he died!?!?! Did Yi Soo get the 49 days too?! Did he fail?! This drama just doesn't seem like they would make that type of error. They know that Yi Soo died the day of Ji Hyun's accident so they MUST know that they planned the end of his 5 years EXACTLY 49 days after his death! Because even though Ji Hyun woke up on day 47 Yi Soo had to wait til day 49 to see Yi Kyung!!! AHHHHH Driving me crazy! Does anyone have thoughts! In my dream world... Yi Soo could come back to life haha like he is really not dead and in a comma somewhere. If only if only.

I was wondering about that too! He probably did fail since he probably only had YK who sincerely loved him and he needed 3 tears. In those 49 days, he probably saw how depressed YK was and went crazy and asked for another chance.
