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.

Both dramas involve a special school that trains them and superpowers.

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

    Shin Hyun Joon and the older actors saved this drama; he gave it a little stability. Loved the whole 'friends forever, whatever', scenario, the music, the martial arts scenes, but the relationship aspect left a lot to be desired.

    But why doesn't anyone mention the main lead's DRAMATIC hairstyle change? That couldn't be any less subtle and yet nobody even seem to notice. They didn't expect us to just let Hyunwoo's professional need to change his looks pass by, right? Oh no, they didn't!

    I love the storyline of this drama, and the character development that goes with it. Idk why some people thought that the storyline was confusing; because this was the first drama where I actually quickly understood the storyline.

    Of course I absolutely shipped the main couple, but I felt like their romance was a bit it rushed. And omo, Lee Hyun Woo reminds me so much of Park Go Bum!

    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!
