Inspiring? Maybe.

I'm a sucker for cancer/terminal illness dramas. I specifically look forward to the scene where the hero/heroine finds out that they are dying and their reveal to their loved ones. Those scenes are usually so emotional, and I usually love every minute of it. Well in this drama, I enjoyed it as well..

Scent of a Woman starts out light.. and all throughout it felt like it did stay LIGHT, not as melodramatic as I'd expect with a drama with this kind of premise. The way Lee Dong Wook's character fell in love with Kim Sun Ah's Lee Yeon Jae was believable as it took its time like it should. But sometimes they get really confusing and unclear with their feelings, which I blame on writing. They get frustrating to watch and seemed to be going around in circle. Pacing gets slow towards the end, but overall the message is clear and inspiring.

ACTING: I honestly did not like the pairing of LDW/KSA. I like them individually, and they both did their part in this drama. I just couldn't buy them as a couple, but that is all clouded by my superficial thought that she's too old for him, which is what they were aiming for anyway so I can't complain. If it was different actors that played their characters, I still would have probably felt the same way due to the age difference required.

MUSIC: Fitting.

Overall, it's a good drama, but also typical and mediocre. Deserves a few tears, and could be inspiring to some though.
