About the Drama
“Feel Good To Die” is based in the webcomic “Jookeodo Joa” by Goldkiwisae. Is the drama of Wednesday and Thursday’s night of the KBS2 network. This drama combines romance, the business world and fantasy. its acceptance in the audience was good for the first two episodes in the always competitive and hard world of K-Drama.
The drama focuses on the “horrible boss” Baek Jin Sang (Kang Ji Hwan) and the temperamental and frank assistant, Lee Roo Da (Baek Jin Hee), who tries by all means to transform him into a good person, as she determines that the terrible personality of her boss, which causes intense hostility of everyone around him, is the reason for his almost certain death.
Lee Roo Da, has constant dreams of revenge towards her superiors, for the unfair treatment they give to their employees. Although this woman’s life is normal and unimportant, unexpected obstacles appear in her daily life when she is trapped in a time loop and the same day of November 7 is repeated every day for unknown reasons. However Lee Roo Da as the days go by discovers that the problem is not her, but Baek Jin Sang and that in order to avoid his continued death and live her normal life she has to ally with Baek Jin Sang and make him a better person.
“Feel Good To Die” generated great expectation because the webtoon of the same title was popular among Internet users and won the “Today’s Cartoon” prize in the 2015. It also has elements that make it very entertaining such as the fun and crazy fights between the two main characters, the adressing of the concerns and strugles of the office workers in the company that causes sympathy among viewers, and what will soon be a romance between the main protagonists that we can not miss.
Personally I didn’t expect much from this drama… until I saw it and loved it, I have high expectations for the development of the plot and characters, for now, I love the protagonists and their chemistry, yet, their hatred is so real, and the character of Baek Jin Sang is so close-minded and obtuse that I can’t wait to see how exactly will Kang Ji Hwan fall in love with Lee Roo Da and resolve the issue (and perhaps the cause) of the loop in time. The drama just started and will have a total of 32 episodes, hopefully you’ll enjoy it as much as I am doing.
