My impression of "My Annoying Brother" is that its a great family type of movie, at least in my opinion...
I expected a sad story about how Du Yeong(D.O Kyungsoo)becomes blind and deals with his brother Ko Doo Shik(Jo Jung Suk)who goes out of prison(i remind you,a SAD story(its worse XD)). Well...it was actually really different from what i imagined. First the swearing is a lot, i dont know if Korea sees read more this as a family movie, considering they blur out knives and guns...And i like how they delivered the story! There was Comedy, swearing, family drama, sadness and tragedy(duh!what can you expect from the peson who made it)brotherly bonding and love, i'm glad the movie is not another sad tragedy movie hit ;) , which i expected from the person who made it(well....proved my expectations kinda....). The reason im giving the story 9.5 is because i feel something was missing, just a little in the beginning. Im still in shock from the ending, i did not expect it at all. So im not gonna give you a spoiler, watch it and see if your gonna be just as shocked.
The acting was great. The bromance made me scream, cry and laugh. It was funny to see the swearing which is really really a lot more than in any drama you have ever seen. Jo Jung Suk is one of my favorite actors because of this movie(in my top 3). His acting is out of this world, i did not doubt his acting for a second. Next lead D.O Kyungsoo: I was worried about D.O because, since "I Remember You" i havent seen him in a lot of dramas or movies. Gladly there was nothing to worry about,he is just as good as always. Lets hope we can see him in more dramas and movies.
Next: Park Shin Hye(Lee Soo Hyeon) was a big suprise for me when i found out about the cast. Her acting was great i'm so glad she was in this movie i cant imagine another female in this role (that's not an A list actress) to grab my attention. Otherwise the role would be very simple, bland and waste of screen time. She delivered the role of caring for Du Yeong so well, that felt it! I dont know why i expected romance between her and the brothers. I shiped her and Du Yeong so hard, but i have a feeling, that if it was a romance movie she would go to Ko Doo Shik and Du Yeong would be the sad second lead who is blind.... so maybe its not good to have romance in this movie after all but just cute, lovely-dovey bromance. The acting is a 10, best cast ever!
Now to the topic about the music in the drama. Its the only thing that didn't stick out enough to
impress me. I dont get it they had D.O Kyungsoo of EXO and Jo Jong Suk(they sang one song at the ending which was good) who can both sing couldnt they make them sing the songs or at least give the signers better songs! They werent bad dont get me wrong but they were not on the same level as the story,acting and visual of the cast and scenery. That's why im giving it 8.5.
As a rewatch value i would soo watch it again. Yes, yes and yes. I only wish i could watch it with my family but they don't even understand english. Thankfully i can watch it with my sister because its a great family movie that plays with your emotions. Even if there are a little shirtless scenes XD. 9.5
Overall its a great movie it had comedy it wasn't all sad like i expected it to be.(Thou from the discription is missing a few generes besides those "Comedy, Drama, Family, Life". Well what happens in the movie can be summed up in genre ''Life'' i guess.)The relationship between the brothers really made my legs jelly. I really liked it! Even if i gave the music 7.5 im still giving it a 10 for overall impression because the other movies that could hold my attention that long without me spacing off are only Train to Busan, Miracle in Cell No. 7 and Werewolf Boy. And as i said in the beginning SAD....prepare food and prepare a place where you can blow your nose and hang your face to dry after the movie...my face is still drying from all the tears....

The movie sucked out tears wherever it could. I thought it would be a light-hearted type of movie but it evolved quickly into something emotionally tense. You get to see the complete asshole character of Jo Jungsuk at the beginning and I honestly thought they didn't leave enough transparency for the viewer to see possible future concern coming from the older brother. But his character surprisingly evolved quickly enough for us to read more see some brotherly love. There were a lot of tragic circumstances that accumulated and the viewer didn't get a break from carrying a heavy heart while the movie progressed. Even though the comedy side of the movie was outweighed, individual scenes succeeded into tickling a good amount of laughter out of me.

I was quite pleased by the acting and the actors/actresses really pulled on my heartstrings. I honestly believe this was one of Kyungsoos best acting accomplishments. There were instances where it bothered me that Jo Jungsuks character treated his brother rough - even after they started opening up to each other I still couldn't get used to him screaming sometimes and showing his type of "manly" love. But this was only a trivial negative aspect of the movie - all in all I was somehow pleasantly surprised how deep the movie turned out to be.

Make a Recommendation Recommendations

These dramas are very different overall. But both delve into the issues which blind individuals face, and also familial bonds and such. While Hyung is more of a story of acceptance, having hope and forgiving yourself, and moving on in life, Blind is a story of realisation, suspense and closure.
Recommended by Tenshinyan
Both have a male protagonist that is a convicted swindler who gets out on parole with the excuse of taking care of a family member. Both undergo significant changes, as tragic challenges await for them outside of prison.
One is a drama, the other a movie.
Recommended by Geanina

    Well this turned out completely different than I had hoped. I cried a river of tears! There should be a warning letting people know to have tissues with them while watching the movie.

    Good movie. Good actors. The only problem I had was the sound. The voices were too low and the music was at least three to five times as loud. It gets very annoying and distracting to have to turn the volume up and down all the time. Otherwise, I gave it an 8.5 rating.

      I think that was just the video you watched. I've seen several versions of the movie and never had the same issue.

      Pretty minor. The main focus is on the two male leads and their relationship as brothers.

      Is she just the romantic interest?

      Kizzy Jul 12, 2017

      Nope! There is none in this movie. It really is focused just on the brothers and their bond.

    I ended crying like crazy but it was definitely worth it - Jo Jung Suk, D.O. - once again you didn't disappoint me. It was great movie and inspired me to think about what is really important in life. Yeah, it gave me food for thought...

    I just finished watching this movie and I still can't believe what I just watched. The only thing I knew about this movie was the cast, that one of the characters was an athlete and that they were brothers, nothing else. So while I was watching this movie I didn't know what I was getting myself into. My heart couldn't stand this movie so I admit that I cried A LOT. I TOTALLY RECOMMEND THIS MOVIE.
