This show was not in my radar at all but when I heard all the commotion of how great and intense it is, I confessed my heart was moved a little bit. Even that, I hesitated just because I had too many dramas on my plate. The show itself sounds very serious and I was in no mood to start something that doesn’t make me laugh. But the pressure I received from friends made me succumbed to watch it. Sigh… I sounded very easy to manipulate, don’t I? Oh well… Amuden, I’m glad I started God’s Gift. I started it right before I left for my work trip and oh my god, it was like a roller coaster ride! I couldn’t sit still. There were few sitting-on-the-edge-of-the-sword scenes, stupid-yet-believable scenes and of course *shakes head like a drug addict* scenes that just made you jumpy! Unfortunately I couldn’t get a proper net connection abroad, so I had to put this show on halt. If not because of work, you can imagine how crazy I could get! Believe me, you don’t want to sees me crazy! No no no…
Back to God’s Gift… One of a thing I hesitated to watch it initially was because of the story line. I am a mom. I have all those sort of thoughts in my head. I especially don’t want to watch it right before leaving my child behind. However, the minute I started the first episode, this show gets to me so badly it is so good. I immediately put on my “protective mommy” helmet on. I can relate to the main character immediately. Because of that, I started to marathon this show religiously and now that I’m towards the end of the series (currently on episode 16), I can see me in her totally. No one would understand this “paranoid” feeling more than me… I mean if something tragic happens to your dear love, wouldn’t you want to turn back the clock and save him (or her)? Well, God’s Gift is exactly that! A mother, Soo Hyun, lost her daughter and the body of her daughter was found days later. Because she was depressed of this unfortunate incident, and blaming herself wouldn’t bring her daughter’s life back, she decided to take her own life.
Meanwhile, Dong-Chan, a former detective turned private eye, got into trouble himself. He is out to find out the truth to his ex-girlfriend’s death. Her death pointed to Dong Chan’s mentally challenged brother and Dong Chan is out to prove his brother’s innocent do. At the time when Soo Hyun jumped for suicide in the lake where her daughter was found dead, Dong Chan was pushed over into the same lake by a group of thugs. The water became their medium and brought them back to live to two weeks before Soo Hyun’s daughter was kidnapped and murdered. The two joined forces and raced against the time to save Saet Byul, her daughter. While rushing to find out the truth and in hopes to stop the kidnapping from happening again, their search unveiled many secrets that involved power, politics, money and dirty tricks used by influential people.
Like I mentioned before, this show is like a roller coaster ride! It keeps going higher and higher and higher, and I don’t know when will we go down from here. Many viewers were disappointed with the ending of this series and warned me about it. Excuse me, do I really care? Kdrama has been doing this a lot lately I’m starting to get immune to bad ending. But surprising ending on the other hand? I care. I care so much and I want to know how this show will end. God’s Gift started with 16 episodes received an episode extension ended on a high note. Well, in my opinion it is simply by this episode. I highly recommend God’s Gift. If you are as curious as me, please DO NOT listen to others and just watch it. You be the judge for this drama. I am happy with how this show turns out to be. One advice if you decided to watch, please watch it carefully because the clues are everywhere. You might need to make a mental note on it… *wink* This thriller drama is more than you can imagine and lot to swallow but I believe you will enjoy the ride as much as I do!
