# OF EPISODES
In this Filipino re-telling of the popular Korean drama “49 Days”, we first meet Diane whose life is storybookperfect. She is the apple of her parents’ eyes, adored by her two best friends and is engaged to be married to an almost perfect gentleman.
In another part of the city, Ysabel lives a life in total contrast. After her night shift, she goes home to her
rundown apartment at daylight where she lives alone, and sleeps until it is dark again. She has no family nor friends, and in the hours between work and sleep, she frequently contemplates suicide.
One fateful day, their lives become entangled when Ysabel finally decides to end her life by walking towards
an oncoming truck on the road. A stranger saves her life by pulling her to the side but her action causes
Diane’s car to crash into the car in front of it.
When Diane regains consciousness, she finds out that her physical body is now in coma and she is now a
wandering soul. She soon meets The Scheduler, a spirit assigned to guide souls of dead people to their final
destination. He explains to her that although she is brain-dead, it is not yet her time to die and is thus given
the chance to resume her life.
That is, after completing a mission within 49 days, which will require her to take over
Ysabel’s physical body while she sleeps.
Main cast and character guide
Alex Gonzaga as Diane
24, an only child of a wealthy businessman, pampered, sheltered, and a Daddy’s Girl. She is Miss Optimistic and Cheerleader of the Year. Her daily goal is to cheer up her family, friends, and everyone who crosses her path. She thinks every problem in the world can be solved with a candy bar and a smile, two things that she is always ready to pull out from her pocket. The last thing she likes is to see someone sad, and the biggest thing she fears is to cause anyone any disappointment.
Yen Santos as Ysabel
26 years old, works at a burger joint on a night shift and sleeps during the day, lives alone and never talks to anyone except when necessary. She grew up in an orphanage with a bossom buddy, Jake, who later became her fiancé. When Jake died in an accident, Ysabel became a recluse, insipid, and spiritless. With nothing to live for, her only goal is to die. Her lifestyle becomes useful and convenient when Diane’s soul is tasked to possess her body so she could complete her task.
Joseph Marco as Dave
24 years old, a non-practicing architect who prefers to cook and run a restaurant called Heaven to keep her mother’s dream alive. His friendship with Diane in high school ended in a misunderstanding. He never never got over it, but neither could bring himself
to patch things up with her because of the complexity of his emotions and the complicated situation they are in.
Matt Evans as Scheduler
His mission is to guide the dead to their final destination. As a spirit, he is curious, impulsive and carefree, but has a cynical view of the world of the living.
