𝑮𝒓𝒊𝒎 𝑹𝒆𝒂𝒑𝒆𝒓𝒔 𝑺𝒂𝒗𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝑳𝒊𝒗𝒆𝒔 - "Tomorrow" Review
I've seen "Goblin", "Doom at your service", and a few other series like that to know that the idea of a Grim Reaper in a movie is to escort dead people to the afterworld and not to save lives and so, this series was definitely a new kind to me and very unexpected.
It was recommended to me while I was searching for a particular series and I think the poster image drew me in to read the storyline. Under the recommendation, I saw other series that are like it and I happened to have seen them. "A Korean Odyssey", "Black", "The Uncanny Counter", "Abyss" and a lot of others like this series. That gave me a little bit of what to expect so I had it downloaded.
"Tomorrow" is fantasy Korean drama series, 16 episodes long and was released in 2022. It is about a cheerful guy who got involved with a suicide case and fell into a bridge and into coma. In his half human and half spirit life, he is made to work with Grim reapers who saves lives.
The scenes that follows are all unpredictable and really interesting to see. Every episodes had a new case of suicide to look forward to, a new lesson to learn and a new strategy to save the person who is about to commit the suicide.
In the first few episodes, I could feel myself being understanding of the other Grim reapers who were against the idea of having a set of grim reapers save those who are about to commit suicide but then, they gave a silly reason why they have to be saved. While they go on each mission, I learn better why it is a great idea to save them even if they have concluded to want to end their lives.
You can imagine how hectic, suspenseful, thrilling and funny it could get with saving people who are determined to die.
Our lead character, the half human - half spirit played a great role in making this series very fun to see and our female lead did great in giving us the thrill and suspense we would love.
I feel the fantasy in the series was too much, a lot of things that would never happen in reality was played out perfectly like it could. From the characters style of clothing, their facial expressions, the afterlife company and then, their means of saving lives with their superpowers. Everything spoke fantasy and surprisingly, fun to watch.
My review won't be complete if I don't mention the Grim reaper who escorts the dead ones and is strongly against the idea of saving lives of suicide cases. I've seen him in the series "A Scholar That Walks The Night" and he was perfect for the role he played, this series is no different. He definitely knows how to take on a role like his life depends on it.
The series is a good one for any who enjoys the fantasy genre and I must say, you should prepare your mind to learn really good quotes, lessons and go through some emotional roller coaster scenes that you'd love it was added.
The series got a rating of 8/10 from me but I think I have another favourite series with this genre to this one. In any case, you'll love this one too.
