What people are saying about Because This is My First Life (From Viki Rakuten) - 

"I'm hooked its so good I can't wait for the next episode"

"Excelente drama 10/10"

"What can I say that hasn't been said? And yet I have to jump on and agree - this is one of the most amazing, refreshing Korean Dramas I have seen in ages - it starts with a premise not at all unusual for K-Drama - a couple of people somehow wind up living together through a misunderstanding. I was reluctant to watch for that reason - MAN am I glad I got past that! This is NOTHING like any K-Drama I have seen - it is grown up in it's treatment of relationships, hopes, dreams, and even sex and sexual harrassment, and patriarchy- it doesn't try to skirt around these issues, doesn't make romance between grown ups some taboo thing - yet somehow brings in all the innocent romance too! The leads and supporting actors are amazing - but I also have to give a shout out to the first few scenes with a came by Yoon Doo Joon which sends up the whole product placement which can be so silly in K-Drama. If you haven't watched - watch!"

"Love this show so much. Says 2 more days but will probably be more like 3 or 4 because of time difference in Korea vs. US. Can't wait to see how leads progress!"

"WOW I love this Drama it one of the BEST of the year it is so GOOD !"

"Omg this drama is so good...everyone in it is soooo's really hard to wait. If possible I want all the eps right this instance which is not going to happen
