“A Bloody Lucky Day” ending review
That was one intense ride, all in all, one of the best thrillers of 2023. And I’d say one of the best kdramas I have seen this year. Truly marvelous.
Might have not made sense at times, but for a binge, it was everything.
Both Lee Sung Min and Yoo Yeon-Seok deserve nominations for their roles here. Both were absolutely marvelous. Yoo Yeon-Seok as the villain is amazing, I hated Lee Byeongmin’s guts and wanted him dead, but I do think this is more humiliating of an ending to him. getting exposed, not being able to see his son, and handed the death sentence. Also, he’s now blind. Total karma, deserved.
While Oh Taek did cause the death of a bunch of people, I always rooted for him. he was under duress, now whether you believe this is an excuse or not is up to you, but its not easy saying no if you fear for your child’s life.
Many parts of the story were REALLY darn clever, the execution was flimsy at certain plot points, but the main points execution was done amazing, which is what matters to me.
The biggest thing I didn’t like about “A Bloody Lucky Day” was the rollout. I don’t understand what tvN and TVING are doing, seriously. Such messy rollout, it airs here, then there, and its all over the place. TVING releases in parts, then tvN airs, then the other part is released, but its still airing on tvN….
Had to wait for it to finish to see what the deal was. Overall, this year, TVING has been all over the place. They have great ideas and dramas, but pick a lane, either release it on cable or streaming, you’re confusing people with your approach.
I get it, it feels like a waste to just release it to streaming, but they need to be more decisive.
I really enjoyed “A Bloody Lucky Day”! thanks to all the cast and crew members for their hard work.
