Debt-laden and feeling unneeded to theworld, he sells off all his belongings and plans for his death date.

Cast & Credits
The theme is suicide, so I guess numerous people will drop it just because of that. But it's not as gloomy as it seems at first. Actually it's very funny at times and the action scenes are the best!
The acting is superb. Every one of the characters is believable, you'll love them, you'll hate them, but one thing is for sure, you will not be untouched by them.
I recommend this drama for those, who are looking for an unique piece, and aren't afraid of heavy themes and the bad sides of people.
Also be aware, that the the story drags at ep 2 and 3, but after that the pace is very good.
Two more things I'd like to compliment in this drama; the writing is great and the music is very good too.
So for those who are looking for non-romantic drama, this could be a great choice.
