“Life” is a grand “comedy,” some say?!

A new episode of this drama joins you in your living room every week just like clockwork, opening with a comedy skit devoid of any punchlines. Delivered by a male trio struggling to make their big break, the comedy skits turn out to be a prelude to the stories that unfold in the remaining 53 minutes of each episode!

Today, the three “masters of comedy” decide to give up on their dream and break up.

A woman who became a shell of her old self after dropping out of the top-tier corporation she worked at for years. Her younger sister’s excuse for working at a hostess bar with no meaningful goal is to take care of her.

Five men and women in their late 20s, all stuck in a situation that anyone would call a “failure.” But could it be a telling prelude to a glittering future?!

Through laughter and tears, this ensemble cast accept their downbeat “prelude” and turn it around!
