OPINION

I highly recommend this drama! Especially if you are into mystery/thriller, even if you aren't I ask you to at least give 1-2 episodes a try. So many used to be popular male leads are in white Christmas that it was enormously fun watching them all together. All the actors fit their role and acted it out amazingly. I also really believe that the age of the drama really added to the mystery/thriller concept and made it much better. Something interesting I noticed is tha white Christmas is filled with several hints if you aren't watching close enough, you will miss loads and be completely and utterly confused! In my opinion the two most important quotes from the drama are the following: "You tainted me, made me pitiful; you made me a monster in the corner; you silenced me; you ridiculed my false hopes; you took the only thing I had and put it around your neck; I held out my hand to you and you let go; you deleted me from your eyes. Finally, you overtook me. Merry Christmas and happy new year. After 8 days, walk up the path by the zelkova tree. Under the clock tower, you will see someone dead. The night that Jesus was born, I curse you." And "Are monsters born or created?" The reason that I chose these as the most important from all 8 episodes is because the first quote is where everything began; the second quote is really the quote of white Christmas honestly, the entire drama was based immensely on those 5 words, "are monsters born or created?" White Christmas really gets you thinking. I truly pondered on that question for days after finishing white Christmas, and the ending viewpoint is that monsters are created. I-after long thought- disagree with this ending because in my viewpoint monsters are both born and created. When watching white Christmas, you will always have questions, but that's what keeps you so interested: even when you think you figured it out your wrong! Luckily, at the end all questions are answered.
