Eobiseu is a Korean romantic sci-fi murder mystery soap opera now playing on Netflix

Abyss is a glowing marble that brings people back to life. Cha Min is an unattractive, but wealthy, bachelor who is contemplating suicide over a lost love. things go awry and he dies, but is brought back to life by aliens and the glowing orb -- the thing is, he's brought back in a new body, one that reflects his soul, which is beautiful. He then discovers that his friend, who he has long held an unrequited crush, has been murdered -- he resurrects her with Abyss, which has passed to him, and she returns, but in a body much less beautiful than before. together, they set out to solve her murder.
What follows is part rom/com, part sci-fi, part murder (oh, there's more than one!) mystery, and part soap opera (lots of cliff hanger endings).

It's fun!

I'm halfway through ( I actually can't believe there are 16 episodes). Each episode is almost an hour, so I watch it when I can. The main characters are likable, the baddie is a dastardly foil for them, and a lot happens in most episodes. it's definitely different than standard american tv shows and I am enjoying it because it definitely doesn't take itself seriously. I think the acting is great too. Also, they eat A LOT of Subway.

OK I thought I would comment again now I've watched a bit of it. I'm enjoying. I particularly like the kind of Greatest American Hero aspect of the orb.

One thing though-in the first episode there's a scene where the female lead comes out of what looks like a university building. Men are all there with flowers. She rejects them all to accept her father's flowers at which point they cheer him as father-in-law.

What is going on there? I'm getting this is some sort of right of passage thing, but no idea what it is.

Oh and the killer's old man act is hilarious.
