This was a beautiful special. It came out of the blue and there were literally no promotions.

Kikwang plays the role of a leukaemia patient extremely well and the love between both best friends was evident.

Since it was only one episode long, there were some parts of the story that were underdeveloped but yet, I still enjoyed and I still loved it.

I would definitely recommend, besides, it's only an hour read more of your time. Why don't you take a watch and see for yourself?

so beautiful I cried a lot watching this ;;

I would totally recommend this, it's only an hour long but it's really really really beautiful and most of all it delivers a really meaningful message.

I love how the story mainly tell us about both friendship and romance, it's a really nice balance. the friendship shown in this special is really beautiful.

I think all actors and actress are doing a great read more job in portraying the role. I really love the main actress, she looks gorgeous. And I think Gikwang did really great, but I would say the guy who played as his best friend might be the best actor here :) But overall they're all really great !

Overall I would give this special a 10/10 cause I think this is perfect

Quite same plot, but the action is different. Maybe because I'll Die Soon is about a middle-aged man that want to live every day like is the last one, while My Friend Is Still Alive is about a high school kid that wants to die without regrets.

    The drama is insanely boring and cliched to all hell. However the moment when he tells him that his friend was his first love made up for most of it, Knowing that the love between two friends can fill your heart so much.

    I love this!! Seeing such a strong bond between friends really warms my heart, though this was sad at the same time. I was very touched, I feel that in the short span of just an hour this little drama special managed to convey a very valuable and meaningful form of love (a kind that often goes overlooked in favor of romance...but personally for me, the type of bond portrayed in this special touches my heart far more than most romances). Platonic love can contain some of the strongest bonds you will ever see, and I really appreciate this special for highlighting this.

      Please share the link where you watched this movie. I'm hoping, since it hasn't been very long since you watched it, that you have a valid link that hasn't been deleted. Thanks for your help ... I need a link with English subtitles

      Thanks so much for this link! I, too, love the Drama Specials. I have yet to watch one that I didn't like everything about it. I continue to see that some of the actors that I follow have been in them also, but I can never seem to find the ones I want to see. Hopefully, the second link above will help me find them. Thanks again... I'll be watching this one soon ;)

    I always had the same questions regarding friendship and what defines the borders between that and romantic love. I remember having a conversation with my best friend about if we were to be the opposite gender would we be eachothers romantic love. Platonic love between friends exist for sure and it can be beautiful without having the physical aspect of it. Some people see love as friendship while others see love in it's physical form and as a bond that can not be friendship.
    For this movie I saw it as a very deep friendship where friends love each other as much as if they would've loved their girlfriends.
