Y’all, Abyss is out and I am so excited I can’t stand it. The leads are two of my favorite actors, Park Bo Young, who is good in everything and Ahn Hyo Seop who killed it in Thirty But Seventeen and in Queen of the Ring, which is one of my favorite lighthearted k-romances of all time. How could they not be great together? I think that’d be impossible.
BUT I can’t watch it yet 😢 😢 😢 because there is no way I can watch the first episode and then wait, patiently, for the next one. I am not that girl. It is a lesser of evils to wait until 3-5 episodes have dropped, so at least I can watch knowing that I will see a little of what happens next.
Waiting will only be a little less painful, and about equal to the pain I felt when I maturely decided not to take a whole donut from the box my co-worker brought in to work this morning.
Please think good thoughts for me while I try to pretend Abyss didn’t come out yet 😉
The plot is below:
“Abyss” is about a man and a woman who tragically die and are given another chance at life through soul-reviving marbles in a magical abyss.
Go Se Yeon was a tough, accomplished, and an unrivaled beautiful female prosecutor who worked in the Seoul District public Office but gets into a fatal accident and dies. However, due to the mysterious magical marble—Abyss—Go Se Yeon is revived, but now in a totally different appearance. Go Se Yeon now possesses a common appearance based off of how “good” her spirit was in her previous life.
Cha Min was the highly intelligent heir to Korea’s top cosmetics company but was also a smart, humble, and a kind-hearted man. Although he has both the brains and an astounding amount of wealth, he considers himself unattractive and is insecure about his looks. Like Go Se Yeon, Cha Min gets into an accident and dies. Due to the mysterious magical marble—Abyss—he comes back to life with a different appearance as an exceedingly handsome man just as bright as his spirit he had in his previous life.
Go Se Yeon and Cha Min begin to work as a lawyer and an administrator at a private law firm and decide to investigate the magical incident. Romance blooms in the office as the two intertwine together to accept their same fate.

I was just scrolling past this on Netflix last night. Park Bo Young is good in everything – I wholeheartedly agree! Have yet to see Ahn Hyo Seop in anything, so I can’t comment there. (Haven’t seen Thirty But Seventeen.) This caught my eye on Netflix, so I might give it a try. I don’t really have the time to binge-watch, so it might work in my favor that I catch it while it’s been released on Netflix. Guess I’ll have to practice my patience skills if I like this one, haha!
I basically binge watch everything now that I’ve mastered multitasking. I can officially write work reports and read subtitles at the same time. Not sure this skill will make it on my resume lol, but it is useful.
