Today I finished watching Life on Mars

This show really a good representation of โ€œyou canโ€™t wait to watch the next episode, but at the same time, afraid with what will happen nextโ€

I sincerely afraid with what the ep 15-16 will give me… so I wait until the very next day to completed it

Now I already finished it,
Iโ€™m speechless tbh, THIS IS A GREAT DRAMA FOR SURE
But Iโ€™m not sure if this is really a happy ending that I want
I get to see his smile but why my heart hurts?

(More thought in comment)


    Since ep 15, Iโ€™m pretty sure this is not time travel… it was really Taejooโ€™s coma dream and this opinion is supported by 2018 Chief Ahn Min Sikโ€™s explanation

    at his first coma, he still have desire to live, to going back (to real life)
    and part of me thinking thatโ€™s because heโ€™s not ready to leave his mom alone, and he need to know with his own eyes that Seohyun is safe and sound

    After he woke up, we learned that He donโ€™t need to be worry about that anymore, and these two womans sincerely want him to be happy…
    It was like validation for what he will do afterwards..

    He jumps off from the building… so he can go back to his dream (1988) to save his friends

    with that heโ€™s back to coma state (the conversation between him and his doctor showed that)

    And after successfully save the 1988 team,
    He still had chance to wake up again (that transfer note indicate that he could still be saved, he only needed to go back)

    But at the end.. he chose to tear up that transfer note, he chose to turn off the radio…
    He really had no desire to โ€œreturnโ€
    He prefers to โ€œliveโ€ in his happy dream rather than in real life
    it really shows how unhappy his life was before..
    and that fact makes me depressed

    Iโ€™m happy he can reunited with 1988 team, trully happy
    But with him โ€œshutting downโ€ his own life, thatโ€™s mean no hope.. An ending without hope is the thing I hate the most, because it makes me feel miserable… and the epilogue didnโ€™t help at all

    Maybe the only theory that can ease my mind is he never been in coma state, he already dead since the very beginning (after being shot), and the 1988 journey is him in limbo, trying to let go whatโ€™s he leave behind, and finally make a peace and going to afterlife


    Ahhhhh really need to get started on this. I downloaded it so I can watch with my Mom but we both got busy and never got to it.


      I hope you will fine the time soon 😆😆 highly recommended drama and perfect to binge watch




        I hope so too. We’re going into summer break soon so more hours for drama watching! I still work the summer but I won’t be doing my exhausting split shifts so crossing my fingers for this!
