Thousand Days Promise is about Lee Seo Yeon, a woman who has Alzheimer’s disease at a very young age. After Park Ji Hyung learns that she has Alzheimer’s, they get married and he takes care of her. This drama is a sad one and it was hard for me to watch. Seo Yeon was an intelligent woman and as she started to lose her memory, she turned into a fool. She forgets to turn off the stove, how to get home from work, the names of people, how to dress up and even how to go to the bathroom.
One of the things that Seo Yeon says in the drama is that she didn’t choose her path. It was given to her. She’s miserable about her life but there isn’t anything she can do to change it.
When watching Thousand Days Promise, you will see that Ji Hyung takes responsibility of his wife and does everything that he can to take care of her. It’s beautiful but I don’t think it’s common to see this in real life. Can love be so strong? After all, it is a drama.
