Even more stills from 49 Days
I’m trying not to get my hopes up, but I have to admit that a lot of my drama expectations for the immediate future are riding on this one, since there aren’t any other shows coming along that pique my interest right now. PLEASE DON’T FAIL ME, 49 DAYS.
The first quartet of images below give us our main character (Nam Gyuri) back in her school days with her besties, Seo Ji-hye and Bae Geu-rin, who maintain their friendship into adulthood. It appears Nam Gyuri’s the leader, with Seo a solid No. 2 who later turns into rival, and Bae the one in between.
Then we zip forward to the present day, where Nam is a happy bride-to-be, here at her engagement party to her honey, the smart, successful, and hot Bae Soo-bin, on the fast-track to a life of wedded bliss…
…if only for the car accident a week before her wedding that knocks her into a coma. A detail that has me curious is Jung Il-woo‘s offer to her, as her trendy Reaper, to give her a second chance at life if she can “earn the tears” of three people unrelated to her. Does this mean she’s a bad person, or just incredibly shallow, or was she actually unhappy but didn’t know it? Or maybe she’s a nice person surrounded by people who never loved her? In any case, she’s got 49 days to earn her life back, in the body of Lee Yo-won…
