I so want to give this upcoming jTBC drama the benefit of the doubt that it’ll live up to it’s name and actually be Fantastic, because it certainly has a fantastic main cast in Kim Hyun Joo, Joo Sang Wook, Kim Tae Hoon, and Ji Soo. But it’s hard to remain optimistic when the glaring word in the plot synopsis screams out terminal illness and the rest flows from the diagnosis of such in the female lead. Kim Hyun Joo plays a top drama screenwriter hit with the whammy medical news that she has 5 months to live, sending her down the path of making the most of her remaining time which means goal number 1 is rekindling the romance with her former boyfriend now top star played by Joo Sang Wook. She’s super good at her job while he’s got the looks and charisma with no acting talent, which is basically imagining in real life screenwriter Kim Eun Sook with terminal illness deciding to date Song Seung Heon, lol.
