Honestly, I read the other reviews for this drama and it's not even worth reading.

One, the story is amazing. I mean yeah the plot could have been better written, but overall the story is good. It revolves around these kids who find their true selves in this school that teaches martial arts. But the school also teaches how to find your true self but indirectly. It gives the students challenges that read more they never thought they would do in their whole life.

Two, the acting/cast is amazing. Lee Hyun Woo is pretty much the main reason as to why most people watch this drama, unless you're new to kdramas and only watch it because of you're a fan of VIXX so you watch it because Hongbin. Speaking of Hongbin, he's actually a pretty good actor. I honestly thought he wouldn't be THAT great of an actor to the other drama I watched him in, but he's actually pretty good. Like his character changes and he shows the character has a bratty rich chinese kid who doesn't really want to befriend anybody but ends up befriending them anyways because of the development of the story. Seo Yi Ji was also an amazing actress because of the way she showed her emotions due to the situations that were happening. As I was watching this, I literally cried every time either Lee Hyun Woo, Hongbin, or Seo Yi Ji cried.

Three, let's talk about the music for a minute. The music is so bomb. Like legit, every time a song was on, I was turning up as I watched the scene happen. It made everything so much better like wow. Plus who wouldn't enjoy osts that are by VIXX? Especially when it was amazing to listen to. Also the song Lee Hyun Woo done also was amazing like damn. That shit was lit.

I highly recommend this drama to those who love either action or love, or even both! I loved this drama because of the way it was developing and the action of it was just amazing. The love also was amazing and I was legit on a rollercoaster ride with my emotions omg. One moment I was feeling this way, the next I was feeling something totally different.

First of, story line is LAME. Like literally LAME. My advise, don't waste your time with this one if you are into dramas with gonna-screw-you-over plots like me. The story is about a bunch of students in a martial arts school and it tends to show some supernatural things as well but they are hardly focused on. The story revolves around an once-idol falling for one of the students (it just suddenly read more happened and I'm still trying to make sense of it) and another rich boy who has eyes for this girl only. Romance wasn't particularly cute or attractive AT.ALL. Half the time I was trying to process how come they are already in love and from where all these feelings are coming from? Friendship was the only best thing in this whole drama. First few episodes of the drama were really good and kept making me want to go back to it again and again but then it changed so drastically that I kept processing the stuff happening till the end. It was like the acting, the plot every had fell apart.

To be honest, I'm hyunwoo and hongbin's fan. Like HUGE fan of Hongbin and as a starlight I wanted to see his first drama with the lead role. His character was kind of annoying? I wanted to pull him out of this drama half the way. Hyunwoo was sleepy most of the time (last I saw his acting was in Con Artists) and was this ultimate sensible boy who was totally different in the beginning. What really happened to change him like that? I don't know. Eugene was a sweetheart, I LOVED her but the main girl Ye Ji? Not so much -.- I loved the idea of using International Cast, I was so great and new to see them. I hope they use this thing in more upcoming dramas. =3

Music was good, I mean the OSTs and other tracks used in the drama. Two osts are from vixx (YAYY).

Rewatch value? Not so much except for the friendship parts and some fighting scenes and THAT'S ALL.

In both dramas, the two main leads have the same fears. And you'll see what happens when you watch them.

Similar scenarios: A real friend will trust in you no matter what. Both drama's show the bond of friendship is stronger than greed and ambition.

    Being as objective as i can - the visual effects are cheap and not breath taking, that's for sure. Acting is pretty terrible. Storyline is not captivating and very confusing.. But i think it's not totally a waste of time. Something to watch if you have nothing better to do, i guess? The martial arts scenes are fun to watch tho!

    Pretty boring drama. If it wasn't for Shannon, I wouldn't even bother watching this.

    The acting was so bad that I wanted to quit but, unfortunately, I am a fan of HyunWoo and I wanted to finish it. It was a mistake, one big mistake. I wasted precious 20 hours of my life.

    At first I was so into this drama and then the next thing I know I'm putting off watching it to watch other things. Around episode 7 or 8 I started to lose interest. I started watching it when it was still airing and after forgetting all about it I'm now on episode 12 and I am sooooo over it but I feel like I came too far to just give up. The plot is very obvious and I feel like I'm waiting for the show to answer the questions I already figured out episodes ago. Like, just get on with it.... it's too obvious to drag out. I'm also soooo sick sick of hearing about this stupid key.

    It feels like watching Naruto! Action, Friendship and Love.
    So exciting especially when the OST plays on. It gives me LSS even after I completed watching this drama. The down part for me is the Chintamani thing. Almost half of the story revolves around the Chintamani but the ending of searching it is so lame. Overall, it's still worth a try.

      I know right! Those were my thoughts exactly!! Though I think the ending about the Chintamani was on porpuse. It basically goes hand in hand with the lesson learnt, that's it's really not what is important.

    The first few episodes where getting me hooked up and all. Like the building frendship between Yoon Shi Woo and Wang Chi Ang was just THE BEST in this whole drama and cute and all. But later on it felt like the story was getting a bit boring and I ended up skipping a lot knowing that I won't miss on anything what I already don't know... and to be honest I actually liked the role Hongbin played.
