Who knew a drama I initially thought would be a whimsical romantic melodrama would turn out to be such a nail-biter. I think the writer has managed to deliver plot twists I wasn’t expecting in the second half, as well as built up so much emotional investment into all the characters, I might actually be nervous for next week’s finale. Which hasn’t happened in a long time, and truly marks 49 Days as a solid drama.
Written preview for episode 18:
Ji Hyun, who is inside Yi Kyung’s body, sees the genuine Kang who has come to be by her side. Ji Kyung cannot hide her feelings and embraces Kang from behind. The tense and nervous Kang asks “are you Ji Hyun?”, but Ji Hyun cannot answer and her heart breaks.
Min Ho finds In Jung, who has been so frightened by Ji Hyun that she is shaking uncontrollably. Knowing that In Jung completely supported his plan from the very beginning, Min Ho tells In Jung “you started it, now you go finish it.” Hearing Min Ho say such devastating words to her, In Jung is stunned.
