Because This is My First Life shows how to take a common cliched premise (contract marriage and forced cohabitation) and make it slice of life, romantic and heart-tugging in the best of ways.

The show has multiple strong aspects, all of which come together to create a great viewing. There's flawed, realistic and relatable characters who slowly grow and change while also remaining consistent to their base personality. There's strong friendships, great acting and directing but it's really the writing that elevates everything. The story is written like an ode to the writer's own life; it's painful but heartfelt, brutally honest but also filled with a sense of fantasy that if a contract marriage was to happen, this is how it ideally would occur. No big shenanigans, no crazy exes but mature, responsible adults that hurt, heal and are wiling to overcome misunderstandings.

And because all the conflicts arise from the characters themselves, it never becomes melodramatic or overwrought, which is a breath of fresh air in a medium that often relies on such crutches to carry the story when there's little left to tell.

A definite recommend for any fan of romantic comedies, slice of life, romance or dramas in general.

I havent watched the japanesse version so I am only going to say if I enjoyed this or not.
Truth is yes, the drama was slow, but the characters were so nicely developed that the pace was pleasurably slow.
You could relate or you know someone in their silutation which makes it even more enjoyable.
The only negative was episode 15. I felt they did what they did only to create tension between the two main characters and it was not very fitting.

Other than that a good time, a good message, nice character development, a lot of sensitivity, perfect scenario that made you think about life. What's not to love?

4.5/5 stars

Gostei bastante para falar a vdd mas não me entra aquele episódio 15, aliás não entendi qual foi o objetivo da protagonista de fazer aquilo. Mas no mais gostei te todos os personagens e o roteiro foi muito feliz na maior parte do tempo, Su Ji foi com certeza minha personagem favorita.

I previously left a comment talking about how disappointed I got after ep 14 because they dragged certain things of the story too much that it made me kind of get bored of it, so I dragged to watch the last ep for like 3 weeks and I just finished and regret dragging it for so long so much! The drama lived up for the expectation I had of it through it all, although
I think Jiho kind of lost the sparkle she had, that strong character she was, shortly after she moved in with Sehee, which was very disappointing. Characters like Choi Aera from Fight For My Way are very rare and I thought Jiho was going to be like her till the end because of how promising she looked, but I guess it wasn't the case.
Nevertheless, I still enjoyed this drama a lot, I screamed, I cried, I got sad, I got happy, I laughed... This drama has it all. I rate it 4/5 because of those things I mentioned earlier, but it's still a drama to not miss out!

Voltando pra dizer (já que to quase no fim) que continuo amando o dorama, mas que RANÇO peguei do Woo Seok. Aff, não consigo engolir ele. Vamos ver no final né.
