I’m going to treat 49 Days like my personal redemption project. I’m going to will it to keep getting better, and see if that works. If not, then I’m going to be in for a rough few weeks. Episode 3 was better than episode 2, which was better than episode 1, so the trend is happily still on an upward trajectory. Sadly, the drama continues to be a choppy and plodding sort of thing, one which makes me bored and working to involve myself into the story.
I don’t hate it, but my determination to keep watching it rather befuddles myself. I think it really is my love for Jo Hyun Jae and my adoration for Jung Il Woo’s Scheduler that makes me loathe to give this one up. The plot holes and excess symbolic moments and gestures make me shake my head at the silliness, but luckily it doesn’t hit a raw nerve of stupidity that makes me gnash my teeth in frustration
