Thousand Days

I'm hooked with this Korean drama entitled A thousand Days (1000days) or Cheon il ui yaksok (천일의 약속). It is the No.1 drama now a days here in Korea. Cheon Il means 1000days and yaksok means promise. So, I think 1000days of promise is the right translation in english rather than 1000 days.

The synopsis of the drama is about the girl (Soo Ae as Seo Yeon) who has an Alzheimers disease because she broke up with her boyfriend (Kim Rae Won as Ji Hyeong). Her boyfriend is about to marry a rich girl whose parents are his father's friend and boss. They have known each other for a long time but Ji Hyeong doesn't love her. He's in love with Seo Yeon, his friend's cousin. A few days before his wedding, he found out that Seo Yeon is sick so he told his girlfriend and parents that he doesn't want to marry his fiancee because he never felt in love with her. He said he loves someone and he wanted to marry her (Seo yeon).

Seo-yeon tried to avoid Ji Hyeong and begged him to marry his fiancee. But Ji Hyeong already made up his mind. He wanted to live with Seo-yeon so he cancelled his marriage the day before his wedding. Seo-yeon's disease is getting worse that sometimes she even doesn't know her way home. One time she was driving home and lost her way. She almost had an accident so she stopped and tried to call someone but she couldn't remember any number on her cellphone. She dialed and the number was Ji Hyeong's. Ji-hyeong picked her up and at that moment, Seo-yeon decided to marry Ji-hyeong. Since then, she started to take her medicines which she refused to take before. She even allowed Ji-hyeong to take him to the hospital.

Seo Yeon's parents left them when they were kids so she and her brother grew up with her aunt. The drama is unique. Unlike most drama now a days that most of them have the same story. That even if you haven't seen yet, you know what will happen next. But this one is absolutely different. It's so exciting, full of emotion and romantic. The SBS drama is on every Mondays and Tuesdays at 9:55p.m.
