Famous screenwriter Lee So Hye is busy with writing a new TV drama and with having to deal with Ryu Hae Seong, a popular but terrible actor who betrayed her before, when she finds out that she has cancer.
Unlike many other cancer dramas, Fantastic knows its strengths and plays them up using great characters.
The strength of this show is with how the core group is written. From the two leads, to their best friends and support group, you really come out of the show believing that these people will always support each other. Each has a unique personality, and well written storyline for both genders. And while the villains are fairly one note and flat, they manage to enrich the core cast even further by making them seem nuanced.
The acting deserves some credit as well - everyone is natural and display the friendship well.
The only real flaw are the villains; if they were written as well as the rest of the cast were, it would have been great. Admittedly, their pure evil just made their comeuppance that much more satisfying but having strong villains that still got what they deserved in as fulfilling a way would definitely have made this show perfect.
A definite recommend for anyone who wants a bit of a romantic comedy, a bit of sadness and just a whole lot of beautiful friendships.
