"Abyss" is the tale of a man and a woman who tragically meet their demise but are granted a second chance at life through soul-reviving marbles found in a mystical abyss. Go Se Yeon, a resilient and exceptionally beautiful female prosecutor at the Seoul District Public Office, succumbs to a fatal accident. However, her revival comes with a twist as the enigmatic Abyss marble transforms her appearance to a more ordinary one, reflecting the goodness of her spirit from her previous life. On the other hand, Cha Min, the brilliant heir to a leading Korean cosmetics company, is a smart, humble, and kind-hearted man who struggles with self-esteem due to his perceived unattractiveness. After his own fatal accident, Cha Min returns to life with a newfound handsome appearance that matches the brightness of his previous spirit. As they both embark on their second lives, Go Se Yeon and Cha Min join forces as a lawyer and an administrator at a private law firm. Together, they delve into the mysteries of the magical Abyss and, amidst their investigations, find love blossoming in their shared journey of self-acceptance. (Source: MyDramaList) Edit Translation

I feel like this drama is getting a lot of negative reviews so I believe I should talk about the postitive sides of 'Abyss' so hopefully new viewers are not scared to watch this drama.
Because trust me you not going to regret it!

Okay let me start with the most important thing. Plot/Writing. Which seems like a lot of people complain about. Now I'm not saying it was 10/10 however I was not bored for even one second or had any problems with how the story was layed out. We start off the whole drama with a lot of questions which I personally liked as it made it much more interesting. The action and the misery parts were truly amazing. It is a rom-com kdrama so I wasn't really expecting much of a twists and exitment but I gotta say that I've never seen such a well balanced kdrama. We got the right amount of romance, comedy, action and fantasy. Masterpiece.

I gotta say that this was the first time watching a kdrama with An Hyo Seop and Park Bo Young ( because yes I did not watch Strong Girl Bong soon) and Oh my God. I am a fan. Totally. Without a doubt. I loved her acting as I feel like she was able to deliver emotion in a really professional way. She was truly impressing. As for Hyo Seop I kinda felt like he was a pretty face rookie actor and in the beginning I thought that would ruin his character however I felt like it suited his cute, clusmy and a little bit dumb character. A lot of people criticized Cha Min's character and I might have to agree with that a little bit as I think they could've give more to Cha Min. More charisma maybe more seriousness however I think it wasn't a big problem as his cute silliness suited the drama

I have nothing much to say about this. It was just truly amazing and I am usually really picky with ost as I get bored of listening to the same songs through 16 episode.

Another element of the drama that I read a lot of hate comments about. And I seriously thought for a good 10 minutes that I'm gonna hate the ending. But obviously I didn't. To be honest it wasn't anything special we seen it before but sometimes extravaganza endings can ruin a drama. I'm gonna be honest this was the ending I needed. Sweet and chill. And nice refreshing ending after all the excitement.

I seriously don't get why this drama is getting a lot of hate. If you are unsure of watching it, Trust me! It's a worth watch. Perfect plotwist. And it is just so entertaining!!!

Abyss had so much potential with that all stars cast and the fantasy story. However, the drama got quickly boring and messy.

The drama had a nice dynamics between the two leads. They were funny and cute together. However, the romance took forever to progress and the ending was terrible. The mystery part was good at first as well, but it got complicated and messy. Plus, the fantasy part was not properly presented or explained.

At least, the performances were good, as expected, from everyone in the cast and the pacing interesting.

So, five out of ten.
