I’m giddy today. Twenty Again is making me super crazy happy! Wae? Because the main character, Ha No Ra, is taking charge of her life completely! Just like me!!!! Taking charge of my life! I’m all for girl power! Wow, Twenty Again is another awesome production by tvN! I know, I’m just super excited right now and I’m not even through the first paragraph! This drama is so wonderful and energizing I even tweeted Bel to watch it! Aaaaggghhhh and I just completed episode 8! I’m so giddy! Too giddy to even type this post! Just look at his face! Yeap, I just can’t help but to screen shot that face! He was shocked! He was surprised! He was proud! The man is proud!!!! And for the first time, in a loooooooong time, he’s in love again! *squee*
Was that too immature of me? I told you I was giddy! Omo, I think I’ve overused the word giddy too many times today! Who cares! Giddy, giddy, giddy!!!! *claps* *squee* Oh my god, I feel like I’m dreaming right now! *giggle*. What makes it even better? The fact that the lead actress, Ha No Ra took over her life back and said yes to her hub’s ultimatum divorce? Wow, I was blown away by what she said! Do it! Yes, go for divorce! It is not the end of the world! Take that, sucker!
And here is No Ra, the woman in control, who said (not her exact words but…) “Go ahead sucker, go ahead and divorce me. I will still go to school!” Muahahahhahahhahaha! I was clapping and laughing so hard! She said it so confidently that she needs no reinforcement (aka her bestie) to back her up this time. I believe her self-confident has skyrocketed so high even her sucker husband was blown away by it! After all, she is no longer the housewife he’s known for the past 20 years!
So now you know why am I so giddy? She’s in control! She’s in power! She finally snapped out of it! After years of being behind the scene, aka serving her manipulative-yet-acting-as-an-angel evil hub Professor Kim Woo Cheol, Ha No Ra finally decided to be in charged of her life by finishing what she had left in the first place: getting her life back and earn a degree. She decided to go back to school secretly even though her idea was shot down by her husband and son. No Ra and her husband have been living separately under the same roof for the sake of their son. And he’s been blackmailing her that if she ever crosses the separation terms that they’ve agreed on, she will lose her store (I didn’t quite get the name but I think it is the store that belongs to her grandma). On the surface, her husband did not portray himself as a typical bad jerk but eventually his true evil started to emerge when NoRa caught him with another woman. Her identity was revealed to us as one of NoRa’s professors but she doesn’t know. Yet. *wiggles brows*
And one of NoRa’s other professors is Cha Hyun Suk, her school mate who once had a major crush on her. But when he found out that NoRa was pregnant and got married to that sucker Professor Kim, Hyun Suk became extremely upset and left to Russia for his studies. NoRa moved to Germany with her husband so he can completed his studies while she ends up alone with their only son. Hyun Suk may have thought she had a great life because she did not come back for her grandma’s funeral but in reality, she couldn’t afford to go home at all. I have yet to know the reason as it was only revealed on episode 8 but she publicly thanked him for being at her grandma’s funeral. Her grateful towards him was beautifully done, in my opinion. I even shed a few tears… It felt really sincere and genuine.
Twenty Again is a 20-episode drama that debunk the myth that your life will end after divorce. I know how NoRa feels. I would feel lost as well had I not have a great support and to be honest, I too, will be as scared as her to move on with life on my own. Twenty Again brings a great message to us. We CAN move on after divorce. We WILL move on. What I love the most about this show other than great acting, except for….. the kids as NoRa’s son and his yoeja chingu, is the script. The pun. The punch. The lines are so daebak they really poke us at the right spot! Believe me, you will feel so good hearing it! I highly recommend Twenty Again if you have not see it. And if you are watching it, isn’t Twenty Again another must see drama for this year? *wink*
