Classic romance drama formula that worked for me. I love the characters and the actors who played it because they have chemistry and the actors are versatile. I love the fact that the drama is just light, entertaining and well-balanced because there's melodrama and comedy. I really enjoyed it's soundtrack and cinematography. For me, it's one of the best soundtrack out there. The drama in general is fresh and charming that I read more can re-watch again and again and certainly could stand the test of time. I love the Paris shots. I recommend this to romantic people who likes watching light enjoyable dramas. This classic drama is certainly a MUST-WATCH! :)

"Lovers in Paris one of Korea's top classics"... I have heard this sentence so many times ever since I started watching K dramas back in 2006, since then I've been holding it back for some reason I wasn't too eager to start it. However, I know that being a K drama fan I have an obligation to watch the Top Classical K dramas and Lovers in Paris is one of them. I read more have always been wondering why is it considered classic and why did it receive high TV ratings (it is ranked top 11 most highest rated K drama of all times and received 57.6% !!) so I was wondering WHY?? Well here is why...

Story: The main reason why I doubted this drama is because of the story (Rich man falling in love with poor woman and everyone is against them) let's be honest here this concept is been used so many times already not just in K dramas but all over the world. What makes "Lovers in Paris" story so special?? Well, it is special the story made me go through so many emotions (and I'm not the type of person that goes through emotions or cry over scenes no matter how sad they were... it's my first time tearing up for a Romantic Drama such as Lovers in Paris). This story is really classic now I understand why, cus even though towards the end "certain characters" made me really pissed off and annoyed (I almost kicked my screen) I thought that I wouldn't rate it as 10 because of those characters behaviors towards the end (it was just too much) but what happened in the last episode was more than enough for me to forget about how annoyed I was with some characters. The main couple's lines and scenes were enough for me to rate this drama 10 they deserve it this drama deserve a 10.

Acting: Park Shin Yang !! OMG I saw him in sign and loved him there he's such a great actor I never saw his romantic side...but I saw it in here he is MAN you'd wish to have for your own he did a great job I loved him the most (his romantic scenes, his character and his acting SIGH everything about him was mesmerizing me). The rest of the cast did a great job as well Kim Jung Eun annoyed me at first but as the story proceeds I started liking her. As for Lee Dong Gun oh my I really hated him and got really sick of his character but that just shows he acted it too well for me to get this annoyed by him.

Music: I LOVED one song (To Your Side by Jo Sung Mo) OMG how I love this song whenever they played it I would always repeat the scenes and react strongly to the them... it's just too mesmerizing with breathe taking lyrics I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT I'm even trying to memorize it to be able to sing it as well as Jo Sung Mo I will love it forever.

Rewatch: This is one drama I would gladly rewatch because it is filled with sweet romantic scenes and I'm sure I'm going to miss this cute couple very soon.

Overall: This drama is one of the best romantic dramas out there, it is PURELY and COMPLETELY romantic filled with sweet romance!! Lovers in Paris is also known for its drama lines ppl still remember those lines said by the actors (I didn't know why ppl were making such a big deal about those lines even after so many year have passed I didn't get why until I actually saw the drama).... My favorite line for Park Shin Yang is "Ore Aige (My Baby)" and for Lee Dong Gun "You're inside me".

Reason behind this is it both has KJE and both are in the Lovers trilogy. Both have different storylines but both have the same sort of meaning behind it.

The story may sound different but I think they have the same concept (rich man falling in love with a poor woman and everyone is against them). They are both SUPER ROMANTIC dramas and the main couples share an amazing chemistry!! In these two dramas you will find nothing but romance, romance and again romance (those are two of the best K drama couples that I've seen) plus both dramas have a crazy jealous fiancé and a love triangle. The only difference is that in LIP the girl isn't sick.

    The two male leads are great. The female lead is whats causing me to struggle to watch the show. Her facial expressions and general demeanor she is trying to convey (comedic/clumsy/airheadish) is so forced that one can barely call it acting. she's good at crying faces though, but don't think i am going to make it. I am watching this for Lee Dong Gun. He's good in this, but the one capturing my attention is the other lead male in the triangle: Park Shin Yang. I am going to look for some other things he's in.

    This drama started out in a really romantic and promising way both for the plot and for the setting in Paris. However as the story progressed it somehow lost its charm and it all started dragging until the end. I was expecting a little more from the plot and hoped the story would have developed more in in Paris. However, notwithstanding the typical clichès found in most Korean dramas I enjoyed the romance on the whole and the acting of both the male leads was really good (I didn't like the female lead too much). Good as a 'vintage feeling' drama.

      Did Park Shin Yang grow on you? LOL :P
      To me he's the perfect man that any girl would want *_*
      but seriously his character is unlike other male characters I've seen before his seemed realistic to me... don't you think so?

      Yes he did grow on me...& I agree the dialogue & his portrayal of his character was so different from the norm, very natural & refreshing. He seemed so real & not as if he was "acting" at all. I will definitely watch his other dramas. Thanks for the recommendation!

      Yeah, i didn't like the ending either. It was kind of random and unnecessary.
