Life Can Be Beautiful

12:15-12:30 PM

This soap opera was immensely popular for much of its 16 years on air. Life Can Be Beautiful told the story of Chichi, a teenager taken in by a wise book dealer. Despite its occassional reliance on the genre's standard meoldrama and characterization, the show's philosophical nature set it apart from other shows. The show provided messages on the ways that life can be beautiful, often by quoting people such as John Ruskin.
