If there is one thing to say about "Fantastic" is that the drama has bold ideas. Combining the promise of a happy, light series with the premise of its lead dying of cancer is a very daring move, although one Dramaland has not succeeded very well in yet. Still, this drama tries to juggle the illness, romance and a hefty dose of family drama to go with.
Lee So-hye (Kim Hyun-joo) is about to write her most ambitious drama when she is told that she is terminally ill with cancer. So-hye struggles with her illness and a budding romance with Ryoo Hae-seong (Joo Sang-wook), an old acquaintance and terrible star actor who becomes the lead in her drama. As you can tell by the premise, this is a romantic drama at heart, although its desired romantic comedy label is at odds with its premise.
