Korean Drama Quotes Galore : Because This is My First Life


It’s been a week since I last finished watching “Because This is My First Life” and I still couldn’t get over how good it was.

I know, I know. Your girl is late into the fangirling game –– like 2 years late –– but hey, let me have my moment to shine and obsess about this drama with my imaginary pom-poms. Cause god damn this drama was good. It just came as a surprise since I wasn’t really expecting much going into it, and came out a changed woman. Okay, nothing that drastic, but you get what I mean. 

Not only entertaining to watch, “Because This is My First Life” also talked about societal pressures as you get older with things such as marriage and having kids, and generally just a whole lot on growing up and being an adult-but-not-really.

It’s an altogether very relatable piece of drama. Which I cannot stop giving praises for; because it’s just that good.
