I am running out of superlatives to describe 49 Days, while the drama is clearly not running out of steam or gamechanging cliffhangers. O.M.G. I was not expecting the ending of episode 18. Heh, how many of you are going to skip ahead and read my last paragraph after what I just said? Bravo for the completely awesome and unexpected (only as to timing, otherwise I thought this might happen), but oh so rewarding moment.
Two episodes away from bidding farewell to all the people we have come to care for in 49 Days, I’m really touched by how much the story has developed organically since it’s pretty contrived start. There are very little gotcha moments or plot twists for the sake of milking our emotions. For a drama that is based on the supernatural and fantastical, 49 Days has ended up being all about what it means to be human and to live in this world – frailty and strength, jealousy and compassion, selfishness and selflessness
