Scent of a Woman
After the classic My lovely Sam Soon, this was one of Kim Sun Ah's best project. It is a romance drama about a girl who was given the notice of having a short time left to live. She decides to quit her job and live her life to the fullest. While traveling she meets the love of her life.
From the synopsis it sounds like a bittersweet drama and in the beginning I really thought the ending will be either dramatic or nonsense (with a miracle). I was wrong. The writer kept it realistic and the moral of story teaches audience that we should live each day like you're alive even if you don't know what's going to happen next. I won't ruin it for everyone but it's a drama I think you should all watch. It was inspiring, touching and filled with precious moments. Note: The story did remind me of Annie Chen's character in Love, Now where she was given a wrong prognosis and met the love of her life while traveling.
Pursuit of Happiness
This drama is full of emotion and surprising. It's not a usual pairing for Taiwanese drama. Most of us are used to watching Kingone Wang, Aaron Yan, and George Hu dominating the screen. So, when I first saw Sonia Sui and Tony Yang I didn't expect much. Partially because I never watched any of their dramas before. But, I'm glad the drama found its way to me.
Sonia Sui plays the main lead Ji An Lei. She's a 34 years-old career driven woman with no love life. Her life is then turned upside down when she meets her ex and a new housemate. I think the best part about this drama is the relationship development between Ji An Lei and her roommate Huang Yi Kang. It was one of the best ending in Taiwanese drama where I felt like it couldn't have been a better ending.
