I honestly want to get some things of my chest from this drama. First of all i started watching this with the idea it would be an awfull drama, so i didn't expect much, but i was pleasantly surprised at how much i enjoyed this drama. Alot of people had super high expectations and hopes for this drama, i think that's the reason why many don't like it, but it is NOT read more that bad, yes they could have done so much more with this and there were things left unfinished, there were too many side storys, and some scenes had poor acting, the plot lacked alot, but none the less it is enjoyable. Not to forget this drama was filled with rookies, all in all i think, it's an okay watch, just don't expect to much of a plot.

dissapointed. they put soo much information in the last episode. i felt like there was soo much information and not enough foreshadowing and not enough time to take it in. the episode was just confusing, soo many cliff hangers, there wasnt enough information to interpret meanings. i liked the actors that was good. I didn’t really enjoy the songs in the last episode either, they were just ok. The plot was weak read more and had a bad closure. all in all i’d give this drama a 6/10. The beginning episodes were good that i had anticipated so much but the end was just didn’t cut it in my opinion. i like high school dramas, but i would definitely not rewatch this again

both dramas are similar in the sense that both the mains are going to a music school and play some sort of instrument.

it has the same plot as it is all about the music industry, also in the drama you will find some famous k-pop idols (i will keep that a surprise)

    even though kim nana almost didnt say anything she annoyed me as hell, had to skip most of the scenes with her gloomy face

    i wish i could find a guide with all their covers, including the ones by all for one, the music [and nana + sun-woon] was really the only thing worth in this drama .-.

    Most of the time, I really can't connect to Se Yi's character & emotion.She always had this clueless look no matter what situation. Consider that the actress is newly debut,I'll let it slip this time.

      I think she portrayed her emotion just fine, not to ask much, but its her character that makes it emotionless at times.

    I thought the ending would be worst because of the comments here, but It's actually not that bad. It just feels incomplete. The writer probably thinks.. "I'll leave it to the watcher's imagination". It could've been better if they added another episode. ANYWAY! I LOVE KANG HANEUL!! HE'S SO HOT AND TALENTED :"> Kim Nana was also great! Love her voice~ Overall, I enjoyed watching this though the ending was nothing spectacular.

    when i watched the first episode i was like omg this drama will be amazing but -_- its so boring the ending was so boring...it's like dream high 2 :( you feel like you expected too much

      Exactly! I was so amazed by the first episodes but then Se Yi started to be so boring, she couldn't choose one man (but she hated her mother for the same thing...) and by the ending of the drama she even went with Sun Woo to the movies. I really couldn't understand that girl's thinking. I had high hopes in regards to Se Yi's character... now I'm disappointed... She turned out to be characterless person. Beside her great voice and nice looks I don't know what they saw in her... I liked Kim Na Na for her determination as well as Sun Woo, he didn't give up until the end.

      So who does she ends up with??
      I'm up to episode 4 and I already feel like dropping this (drama). So depending on this answer, I will either drop this or finish watching this because this not that enjoyable to watch so far. So pls any1 let me know as a spoiler to not mess it up for others.

      Thank you for letting me know, I thought it was going to be a open ending without a clear relationship status. Ok I will continue to watch the drama. Thanks again.
