!Pop-Sup : A day before us


It’s been quite a while since I’ve done one of these Pop-Sup posts – Well what’s so surprising if all I’ve been doing is scheduling them? In any case, I’ll be bringing an interesting dish to the table! It’s still anime – But it’s a Korean anime. I’ve never heard or seen Korean anime, but when I chanced upon this one, I absolutely loved it!

If not for the intelligent recommendation algorithm by Facebook, I wouldn’t have been able to stock up on diabetes (which my current life doesn’t provide) as supplied by this sweet sweet series.


A day before us is a RomCom mini-series (More romance than comedy, but they both tie in well) with 2 seasons so far. Each season may last up to 15 episodes (correct as of date of this post – Season 1 had 10 episodes, and Season 2 15.) where the episode length may vary between 1 minute to 10 minutes long. The studio animating this series, LICO, releases an episode every Friday (~6pm GMT+9 timezone).

The language medium for the animation is in Korean, but it comes with english / japanese subtitles. The english subtitles given by default aren’t always grammatically correct, so you might have to count on translators providing their input in the enabled annotations to get a better experience. (Hey I don’t know Korean, so… … I’m blindly believing the subs are right)


As with any typical school RomCom, we have our protagonists coming together with a chance encounter (rhyme much?). We begin our story on a rainy day with Ha Eun and Yeon Woo as they wait for their bus for a trip home. You know how Murphy’s Law states that whatever will go wrong will go wrong? That’s just what happens to Ha Eun, but what goes wrong also sets in motion the relationship between the two in time to come. Yeo Reum and Wook are mutual friends with Ha Eun and Yeon Woo, and we get to see the adorable displays of adolescence (and drama) between the former.


The series adopt a light water-colour animation style, very reminiscent of Ao Haru RideOne Week Friends and Usagi Drop. That just makes the show more fluffy and cute (let me stress on fluffy), and highlights the heartwarming feeling that it portrays in every episode.

I’m not one who listens to Korean songs (I mean, I am rather nit-picky with the genre for K-songs, so just the ballad ones work fine for me), but the soundtrack in A day before us is not only soothing but also brings the inner thoughts of the characters to life. The vocal inserts are also beautiful. Don’t think that this is just a mini-anime series released on youtube! The attention to the little things creates an unforgettable viewing experience in the show.



This mini on-going series (It’s currently entering season 3) is a really fun one to watch. Though it doesn’t remind me of my younger days (I’m not that old…), just binging the series just made me a smile to myself like an idiot as I watch the characters and their interactions. It doesn’t take up a lot of time, and it can help you forget your worries just a little while you become gradually involved with the characters as the series progresses.

Did I also mention that there are hot guys and girls too? I probably have been writing them off with the “cute” label.


Have you seen this Korean mini-anime series yet?
If you do, how did you feel about it?

That’s all for this sharing!
Take care~

Living life little by little as I try to understand how life works. As complex as it is, so as I am, it may take a lifetime to understand. But regardless it is not pointless to pursue a near-impossible goal.

    Haven’t heard of this one, but I also have to be honest romcoms are (usually anyway) not really for me. Nevertheless I did like your post, and I am glad you enjoyed it. Ps: did you see you passed 100 followers? Congrats 🎉🎉

    • Haha yeap I did saw the follower count went pass 100. I don’t actually get all too concerned with follower counts and blogging statistics milestones though. 🙂
      I do however, sincerely hope that I produce good enough content and reviews that are nice to read for my followers!
      Thanks Raistlin!! :)))
      No worries if romcoms aren’t your preferred genre. I’m more rom-fluff myself, looking for the warm fluffy feel that … umm … feels like I’m hugged XD. We all have our beloved genre and the kind of drugs that it feeds us ^^

        Haha, it’s exactly the same with me too. The only thing for me that is important in blogging is interacting with everyone and even if I would only have one follower, I would still enjoy it 😊And no worries about producing content that is good and nice to read: You do exactly that 😀😀
        haha..well I don’t even think I have a favorite genre (although I do love science fiction and horror), but I’m open for pretty much everything (like right now I am watching March comes in like a Lion and it’s amazing 😀😀).

"Consider, can the universe be justifiably called infinite? Doubtful. It may not have a discernible end, but it had a beginning and its component parts definitely have a limited cosmological shelf-life. Splitting hairs or not, if history tells us anything, it's that scientists often make very poor poets. We're all just a ship of fools chasing phantoms, heedless of what really underwrites natural law." - Okabe Rintaro
