The Choice is more of a thriller-esque story, but it definitely has some really horrific themes! There’s something truly messed up going on here.

Born with just one heart between the two of them, the Kang sisters face a sinister fate: for one to survive, the other must die.
Their mother faces a horrible choice. How would you decide?Manta
The Choice starts off quite confusing, with a woman searching for people and simply saying they’re not good enough.
Turns out the female lead used to be a conjoined twin. However, in flashbacks we see how twisted one of the twins are and it makes us wonder, which one is the female lead.
I can’t say I know what to expect, the story is keeping me on my toes.
What I will say is that’s heavy with suicide-talk, psychological and physical abuse but also hope.
When we start out with the series, several events have occurred. We’re then pushed into the past, discovering what caused the situation to be the way it is.
Our female lead doesn’t seem to be evil or mean, but she’s not exactly free to choose her own path in life.
The mother is honestly quite nuts and is seemingly an abuser. The conjoined twin also seems to be wanting to make life a living hell. She’s clearly not sane, either, and even ends up killing someone as a child!
I do like the art and character design, with the tone being quite cool and dark. Our female lead is attractive and smart, studying to become a doctor or something like that.
She’s clearly not feeling well mentally, which makes me wonder how much is her own ideas or thoughts. And how much is her mother’s desires and wants.
I’m not sure why, but I’m having a feeling our female lead will turn out to be the “evil” twin. It’s seemingly a cliché end but I can’t help but to think that way.
Final thoughts: Overall, I quite like the story since it’s intriguing and I’m not sure what to expect. It’s definitely keeping me on my toes!
