A Hallelujah Chance for me

I must admit, when i first heard of this drama i was intrigued to no end. I thought it might be interesting, as the plot sounded to be quite a nice one, a person gets a second shot at life, and an opporunity to relive the past and reshape it so he will not have any regrets, especially his biggest one, letting the love of his life slip away due to his blundering. Even to this level, such a plot would have satisfied me, but this drama i must admit went far and beyond my expectations.

As i said, i initially thought this would be just a guy goes back to the past, and changes enough to show the girl his affections enough that he does indeed win her heart and they live happily ever after. Feel good? Yes. Romantic? Of course. Would it have satisfied me? no doubt. Is that what they did? looking back, thankfully not. It would have been well enough to just have him win the girl in the end plain and simple, it would make tihs drama good but not to the level that it became.

By the second episode i realized, this was not going to be as simple as i thought, that perhaps, he would in fact not win her in the end. I won't spoil the ending for those who don't wish me to, but i will tell you, i was amazed and pleasantly contented with what happened to him. Not since Nobuta Wo Produce, or another drama of that caliber had i seen what i saw in this drama. I was amazed by the romance, the love he truly did feel for that girl, but even more amazing to me was that main character. I loved seeing the complete evolution of a man, a metamorphosis from a man with inner demons, ghosts from his past that haunt him, to a man who, through a course of 11 episodes, goes from the highest of hopes and confidence, to the lowest pits of despair, a man thinking all is set, to a man believing full well he has lost and willing to accept it. We see a man changed completely, a man who, at the beginning, even if he HAD managed to win her heart, was not a man who would be able to take care of her, who in all respects was not worthy or ready for something of this magnitude. Seeing him grow, he gained the traits required I believe for a truly wonderful love to develop, he must have sunk to the level of her hating him and realizing how bitter it is, and when given the chance to forget her to save his own pain, chooses the harder road of not giving up because he cannot forget her. Thus through 11 episodes, we see a man unready but willing, to a man fully prepared to make the biggest gamble of his life.

If you have not been able to tell by this point of my review, I love this drama, everything about it, not since 1 litre of tears have i loved a drama so much, have i believed whole heartedly that there can be nothing, NOTHING, that could improve it, a drama that i in my own honest humble opinion view perfect. This drama was amazingly developed, character relationships strong, the casting was excellent with well known people, and the music suited it perfectly. In just about every aspect, this drama, as i have rated it, gets high high marks. To anyone thinking of watching this and reading the review, i sincerely hope you watch it. Any person who calls themselves a drama fan cannot miss this gem of a story.
