resurrected 12 years after he died. From the get go, we saw that Sung Hae Sung found a student (Yang Kyung Chul), unconscious and bloody in the school's art room, then rushed out to get help but was hit by a car while cycling really fast to get across a road. He died and was pinned as Yang Kyung Chul's murderer. As for the car accident, the car belonged to Hae Sung's friend, Cha Tae Hoon's father, but the driver was another man who was later revealed as Cha Min Joon's uncle. Also Cha Min Joon was Cha Tae Hoon's half brother but Tae Hoon didn't know that until the final episode. Of course, the real driver wasn't the uncle but Tae Hoon's father Cha Gwon Pyo and the uncle took the blame in exchange for Gwon Pyo's investment in Min Joon's restaurant. Finally, Tae Hoon lived 12 years of his life thinking he killed Yang Kyung Chul but the real killer was Park Dong Seok, Kyung Chul's friend who accidentally killed him in a scuffle over - need a pause here cause the reason is really stupid - a really stupid reason. Finally finally, Hae Sung had to return to wherever he had to and the mystery of how & why he came back was unanswered. There, I just spoiled everything for you in the first paragraph.
So in the end, the mysterious atmosphere of Reunited Worlds wasn't as strong as the synopsis portrayed it to be. (Which was why I think I took several gaps watching this drama and one gap was way too long. Heh.) We get lots of family and friendship drama in between. Bearable, not too bad but can be boring and draggy at times. Especially the times when Hae Sung and girlfriend Jung Jung Won swooned over each other. We would learn things like Hae Chul having a daughter, Young Jun becoming a cardiologist and kept mum about his siblings, Tae Hoon and Young In seeing each other and Soo Ji needing a kidney transplant. I may have just spoiled more things for you. Occasional comic relief was provided by Hae Sung's friends Hong Jin Joo and Shin Ho Bang as well as drunken Cha Min Joon.
One thing I really like in the show is the apartment. Jung Won lived on the top floor, Ho Bang and Hae Sung became her neighbours in later episodes and in the final episode, Hae Chul's family lived on the ground floor. There was on the top floor a recreational space with a table and two benches where Jung Won and friends could gather and drink beer. How cosy is that? The downside about it though is it was right beside the road.
Sure there were herrings thrown in the way, like the first art teacher who refused to talk, making her seemed a little suspicious. Then the suspicions got thrown to the second art teacher who was like all secretive with Tae Hoon's mother but let me tell you, if my memory serves me right, the real mystery is this: why did the second art teacher told Yang Kyung Chul to meet her at the BACK gate of the school at 7 PM just to scold him for some damage he did at the art room? That is one dedicated art teacher.
The second real mystery is this: is the school not locked at night? Is this just me or is there a cultural difference between schools in Malaysia and South Korea?
