Addictive Rating: 2
Synopsis: [Taken from wiki.d.addicts.com]
Shin Ji Hyun was enjoying absolute bliss as she was about to marry her fiancé, Kang Min Ho, but her perfect life is shattered when she gets into a car accident that leaves her in a coma. She is given a second chance at life by a reaper, but it comes with a condition: she has to find three people outside of her family who would cry genuine tears for her. In order to do this, she borrows the body of Yi Kyung, a part-time employee at a convenience store for 49 days.
What I have to say:
Seeing actors pushed to take on another person's mannerisms always attracts me. In this drama, the actor that plays Yi Kyung has to both act as the depressed Yi Kyung, but also the perky Ji Hyun. The romantic aspect is also nicely done. Seeing someone who's in a coma but can see what's going on with her family and friends around her adds to the suspense and drama, and of course the pending deadline in which Ji Hyun has to get enough genuine tears adds to the addictive nature of this drama. I didn't go into this one expecting to get sucked in, but I did! The twist at the end is good, too.

Soju (1) | It had me coming back for more, but left me with a hangover. Worth it in the moment, but slight regret the next day.
Kimbap (2) | It moved well and often left me wondering what would happen in the next episode, but it wasn't as fulfilling as it had the potential to be.
Bibimbap (3) | I lost a lot of sleep because they knew how to end each episode with a cliffhanger! Lots of harmonious ingredients making this one a win!
Fanatic (4) | An amazing drama that was very well told and nearly every single episode ended with a major cliffhanger making you scream for more! I'm an absolute fan!
(I only put on here the dramas I actually recommend because I think it's really good. Even a soju rating means it was good and satisfying. A fanatic rating just means it blew me away and was near perfection. There are many dramas I've seen that I don't have on my recommendation list.)
