"I want to light a small light in the dark path that is death"

If you are here for a fluffly rom-com, you are dead wrong - no pun intended.

This story is about the lives and work of those in service of a funeral home. It will make you cry, smile, and develop a deeper understanding for the inevitable tragedy of death and the value of life. -Similar to the protagonist of the story.

Sanyue starts as a bratty girl who has given up on life because she feels like life has given up on her. While contemplating suicide her aunt appears and convices her otherwise. She helps her get a job at a funeral home as a make-up and restoration artist. With time, Sanyue not only learns the skills required for this demanding job, but also gains a deeper respect for the deceased and the people they leave behind.

This show is not perfect. Some of the younger actors only deliver passable performances, but it's not so bad that it takes you out of the story. The story itself can appear a bit overly dramatic at times, almost making the protagonist appear like Detective Conan with people dying left and right arond her. However, considering that this is a story about a funeral home, it is not too unrealistic.

Here are my top 3 reasons why you should watch this show:
3. The show depics relationships between humans very realisticly. Whether it be Sanyue's messy relationship with her mother (and later also father), her ups and downs in pursuit of love, or the relationship between family members and the deceased.

2. It offers a glimpse into the work and lives of people working at funeral homes. Including the demanding things they have to do, and the hardships and prejudice they have to endure from the outside world on a daily basis. After watching this, you will gain a deeper respect for the profession and the people who dedicated themselves to this service.

1. The deceased are pitiful, but the living need even more compassion. With each of her jobs Sanyue meets and learns more about life and death, and so do the viewers.

Overall this is a very meaningful show. Yes, it has its flaws, but so does life itself. And maybe that's what makes it so beautiful.

This drama is really meaningful!!!! Give it a try and ignore some bad reviews

I came across this drama and decided to read the reviews to see if it is worth it. After reading the lowest review on here, I decided to drop the drama. However, I saw the trailer of the main lead when I was on FB and it caught my attention. I then decided to give this a try and I am so glad I did. I don't know why the person complains this drama involves so much about deaths/funerals. I mean the FL works at a funeral, do you expect to see weddings there or something? I also don't get it why they complain the main characters just stay on the side when others cry during the funerals. I mean the main leads work there, yes, they are sad, but of course we have to leave the screen time for the family members. Of course everyone has their own opinion, but I just want to defend and let others know that this drama is actually worth it. Just ignore that bad review because it just didn't make sense to me. At first, I kind of dislike the FL's character but later I grew to love her. If you guys want a short drama that is meaningful, this one is for you. There were some episodes that I cried so so much. Love this drama
