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 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.

Gente, estou amando. A gente super se identifica com as personagens e o dorama tem até uma pegada feminista, passa umas ideias bem bacanas e tal. Curtindo muito. Sem contar que o casal é lindo, super shippável, o Se Hee é estranho de uma forma cômica, e eu me identifico bastante tanto com ele (com isso de não querer casar, ter uma vida pacata com um pet, etc kkkkk) quanto com a Ji Ho, já que sou escritora amadora também e tenho esses sonhos dela. A empatia chega a tanto que até nos emociona em várias cenas. Enfim, MUITO CATIVANTE esse dorama. Quem ainda estiver em dúvida vai na fé. Acho que está sendo o melhor do ano pra mim.

At first, I didn't like it that much because I had problems warming up to Se Hee weird robotic behaviour. But just when the drama grew on me and I started to like it very much, the worst two episodes of my life happened and it really ruined it for me.

I still think it's a really important drama in terms of social commentary and I hope it will not be the last. (but please no more solution to uncomfortable bras being that you should buy a 250$ bra!)

Wow, I loved this so much. Even supporting couple's stories were highly enjoyable. 5/5
