5 Reasons You Should Watch Helena's Promise

Known internationally as Scent of a Woman, this drama comes to Philippine TV today on ABS-CBN. Belle tells you why she loves it in this blog entry. By Belle Yambao

As soon as I saw the trailer for Scent of a Woman on ABS-CBN, I was excited. Renamed to Helena's Promise for local TV, the series was originally aired in Korea from July to September 2011, and being the drama addict that I am, I couldn't resist marathoning the episodes as soon as the series ended. After all, it stars two of my favorite stars, Kim Sun Ah (My Kim Sam Soon) and Lee Dong Wook (My Girl). This is Dong Wook's comeback drama after returning from two years of military service.

Scent of a Woman tells the story of Lee Yeon-Jae--played perfectly by Sun Ah; she even lost weight for the role--a woman who gets the shock of her life when she's diagnosed with a terminal disease. For the past 10 years, Yeon-Jae has been tolerating her officemates and scrimping on the things she likes so that she can enjoy life later on. Now she discovers she doesn't have much time left, so she comes up with a bucket list and embarks on a journey to tick off all the items on it before it's too late.

Alternately inspiring and heartwrenching, Scent of a Woman is bound to appeal to different kinds of people because of its universal message: life is short, which is why you should live every day as if it were your last. Not convinced yet? Scroll through the gallery below for five reasons to watch this drama!

Catch Helena's Promise on ABS-CBN from Mondays to Fridays at 2:30PM.
