Loves you, loves you not...
A simple straight-forward love triangle. You can somehow predict who loves who and ends with who for this series. The other prevalent ‘party’ here is loves towards God. Not just one’s loves and worship to God, but a commitment as a priest versus one’s childhood sweetheart.
I have hinted straight-forward love triangle because the storyline is easily predicted. One boy loves one girl but didnt say it out loud, then feel threatened when discovered he has a rival. Then came the family’s complication from behind that further makes things more colourful. Then someone diagnosed with terminal illness. What happened next?
Of all parts in this drama, the one that I find intriguing is the dialogue with ‘God’ in the church and when it is precisely summed up by the Archbishop! How important this ‘hero’ is. Not just any leader of the parish, or any church, but the Archbishop himself - personally visited him at the hospital! isnt it astounding position to be sought after by the Archbishop himself? That is a bit too far I would think.
Anyway, the advice given by the Archbishop is very true with in-depth meaning. General but applicable!
Nice to watch though not really a thumb-up performance. Veeeery slow from one scene to another. But I like the ‘religious’ subtle debate here.
happy watching… Enjoy! :).
