Lee Yo Won and her latest Soap Opera, 49 Days, are you contented with the Ending or have other endings in mind
One of my Favorite scenes from 49 days
The ending of 49 days caused an uproar in the Netizen community. Everyone failed to guess the ending corrrectly... The mystery was focus on who among the main cast is going to die, and who will end up with who... emotions rose on Episode 19, when Jihyun told Yikyung that she is going to die again, and that was the end of 2nd to the last episode. leaving televiewers open mouthed and shocked, and sad... They just can't believe, They have been following the drama for weeks and they all witnessed JI hyun's hardships during her 49 Days challenge. NO one wants Jihyun to die, everybody was expecting her to comeback to life, then start a relationship with Han Kang and become Yikyung's friend.
The 20th Episode confirmed that indeed Jihyun is going to die, that is why she pretended not remembering or knowing anything especially with Han Kang's presence, but she, told the truth to Yikyung, and told her she can't tell Han Kang how deeply she falls for him because knowing will only hurt Han Kang more, she is going to die and will not stay long, so it's better to just remain a friend to him.
Another unexpected ending is the revealation that Yi Kyung was Ji Hyun's long lost sister. The drama is full of Twists and coincidences, and some viewers expressed rants about it. Personally I like 49 days, it never fails to excite viewers every week that all became addicted to it, reactions of televiewers are natural, some maybe went overboard reacting, but that was the impact that the writer successfully triggered.
Lee Yo Won in one of my favorite scenes in 49 days
Missing Lee Yo Won
If you're favorite actress is from another Country, you content yourself by watching her soap opera over and over again. You can't imagine how many times I watched Queen Seon Deok and Bad Love, and still looking ang digging for Lee Yo Won's old soap opera and Movies too.
When I was told by another LYW fan that our favorite actress will do another soap opera, I was so excited I can't wait for the first day of airing. LYW fans from all over provided me all the links that they know but the bests were the EPDrama and KImchidrama.
I would like to thank my friends at Facebook Lee Yo Won PHilippines for links and updates. Nikachan, Ninimi, Unni and also all my friends at Soompi for wonderful photos... Phetboe, QSD I miss you guys
Story of 49 Days
When I first read the synopsis of the story of 49 Days and another actress will be doing a role of someone in Coma, and her soul will use another woman's body (a role portrayed by LYW), my first question was, will Lee Yo Won get the lead role?or is she the lead character?
That made me more curious about how the story will flow... and watching the first episode, the story did not seem to focus on her but to Ji Hyun ( played by beautiful Nam Gyoo-ri), which is very understandable. To give impact to Ji hyun's life and how she got connected to Yi kyung (Lee Yo Won). but as I get deeper with the story, I can say it's really Lee Yo Won getting the Lead role because she was the one portraying two different characters, as SONG YI-KYUNG and as SHIN JI HYUN. And she is doing it very well, the Lively Ji hyun, and the aloof Ji Kyung.
She made me cried a lot of times as Ji Hyun especially before her father's surgery, she made me cried when she received her first tear. As Yi Kyung I was moved by her very aloof character, a woman of few words, her sad unaffectionate look is really very convincing, that I can feel the load she is carrying.
One of my first favorite scenes (in fact I recorded it in my cellphone) is when she received her first tear, the camera movements were dramatic, Jihyun cried for joy and the background music, Forever/ Always (49 Days OST) was just perfect. Of course Lee Yo Won's acting was great.... I admire her even more..
Admiring other characters
Just like what I have experienced in Queen Seon Deok, I came to like other actors or actresses in the the drama. Lee Yo Won always developed a good chemistry with her leading men that no wonder you will like them for her too or you will like them and consider them as your new favorite.
Jo Hyeon Jae as Han Kang
He is my favorite among the three guys in 49 days. He has a good chemistry both with Lee Yo Won as Song Yi Kyung and Nam Gyoori as Jihyun. He did good as the Character of Han Kang who is indifferent and yet has a soft heart... The way he protects Ji hyun and Yi Kyung made me look at him as a modern day hero, and women wish that in reality there is someone like Han Kang who will do everything to protect his love. Jo Hyeon Jae is not just good looking but he is a good actor, with good singing voice. His Song in the 49 days OSt is a real favorite.....
Love him with simple gestures of love that he expressed to Yikyung and Jihyun, remember that scene when he asked for a shake hand to Yikyung/ Jihyun and it took long before he let go of Yikyung's hand. He melted my heart in the backhug scene, When he confirmed it was Jihyun doing it, he held Jihyun's or Yikyung's hands with his two hands and said "Please tell Jihyun to tell me everything that she wishes to tell me when she wakes up, I want to hear it, and also not to leave without saying goodbye". .Good Looking actor, and Good acting... whose heart won't melt?
Love him too during his last date with Jihyun, pretending he did not know that Ji hyun will soon die, and instead teased her just like what he did during their highschool years.
I thought he will end up with Ji Hyun . But with the death of Ji hyun, I felt disappointed I can't see the two of them acknowledging their feelings for one another. but a good story is the one with the unexpected twist, the one that makes the televiewers react no matter how unfavorable it could be. The ending of 49 days left us to wondering whether Han Kang will soon fall in love with Yi Kyung/ JI min, but as the story showed it, they were very close, and almost have similar love story, and most of all both knew the secret of 49 days, and the power of love even beyond life...
Jeong Il Woo as the Scheduler and Yi Soo
Jeong II Woo had a very remarkable character as the Scheduler, As a Scheduler he was very funny even if he was mean sometimes... He and Jhyun also has a good chemistry, but in this drama they are not mean to be lovers. His Human character as Yisoo and the greatest love of Yikyung won the admiration of majority of televiewers, reminded me of the time of Bidam-Deokman love in Queen Seon Deok (I wonder who's got the most number of fans LOL), All his scenes with Yikyung were heartwarming, whenever Yikyung recalled the time that they were together (with the song Tears are flowing playing in the background) you can see how much he sacrificed for Yikyung.. Great love that started from childhood, from the time he gave Yikyung her name as Song Yikyung, to their teenage years when Yikyung pinned her ribbon/awards to Yikyung because he said he is Yikyung's Father, Mother, siblings, oppa and etc... Yi Soo and Yi Kyung growing up together, helping each other to become stable in life....Yi soo getting double jobs to pay for Yi Kyung's Tuition fee. One misunderstanding separated them temporarily but Yi soo was preparing to fix everything but death came his way, and all words were left unsaid, leaving Yi Kyung choosing to live a miserable life.
I can't forget their reunion, when you love a person too much you wish you stay with him forever, but if he begs you to go on with your life for him, do you have choice...? Just like what Yi Soo said,"you gave me reason to live, you are very precious to me so you will be precious to someone.... Repay me through that someone you are going to Love", then kissed Yi Kyung, and left her crying.....when he turned his back, he was crying too, I was deeply touched with his acting,. and for me that's unforgettable.
Nam Gyoo-ri as Shin Ji-Hyeon
Nam Gyoo-ri is so pretty and her innocent look made the role Ji Hyun as perfect for her... I like her Highschool days scenes with Han Kang, and I like them together in their last date. I love her when she smiles, can't forget her smile in the place where Han Kang brought her to say their wishes.
She has a good chemistry with the Scheduler too and I guess one of the liveliest scenes in the drama was her communication with him specially when she panics. .. I nejoyed their scenes a lot especially if the scheduler called her the "trouble maker". I always Love that part when the Scheduler let her rode with him in his motorcycle...
I always love the part that she called Yi Kyung "Unni", and was pleased with the idea that she chose to tell Yi Kyung that she is going to die again... I mean Unni became her confidante..in a matter of life and death
I am one of those who did not like Jhyun to die, because I expect to see her with Han Kang once she woke up, but I guess some endings are made to make dramas or soap opera more remarkable and unforgettable for the viewers.

Bae So Bin as Min Ho
Saw him first in Shining Inheritance and did not expect that he will be the bad guy in 49 days. His past is pathetic, but his mother did everything for him to have good educational background, but for what ever reasons his mother became sick and needed to be confined in a Mental Institution. He fell in love with Yi Kyung, and he later on regret everything that he did.
He is also cute, maybe a team up with him and Lee Yo Won will not be a bad Idea too..
Though the ending is sad because Ji Hyun died, still it is not a tragic ending. Ji Hyun left with everything placed in its proper order, and it was a feel good drama because it shows hope to human race. If Yi Kyung died in the story, it will leave a negative ending that a miserable person can only get her happiness in the after life world. With her returning to a normal life, aren't we encourage that whatever disappointments that we encountered, there is always something good next to it, we only need not to lose hope.
Do I like the Ending, YES I like the ending.... In case I will be asked to change something in the drama, there is nothing I will change but instead I will add on the part of "finding" the long lost daughter. Maybe a bit more detail, like parents talked about it, more recollection on why they had hard time finding her until they finally lose hope and stopped searching for her and what convinced them to believe that their daughter died. Han Kang finding out about it must be more dramatic.... I guess that's the only part that I wanted to change.
Asking about hints in drama that Yi kyung is the lost sister, when she went to her parents' house for the first time and the mother said she felt something like connection to her... hope I just did not overlook that part.
