    Fine executed. As most of you would know Holy Land is an adaptation of the manga Holyland. This adaptation is not the best but also not the worst, simply ok. I must confess I chose this drama because of its poster. I simply liked the dark colours, and concerning the setting,lights and shooting it satisfied me a lot. I'd give simply a 10 for that. I would like to give another 10 for the story, but that goes for the story of the original manga.It may not work the same with you but personally I like this kind of stories. But for the story of this drama, I gave an 8, because there were some gaps, not about the incidents but particullary about the characters. Still read more

    Okay,before I review this,please Dongho fangirls,don't go into rage mode,it's just my opinion.

    So,overall,the only thing I liked about this drama was Hoon's acting. I'm not a fan of U-Kiss,so apparently I'm not biased,as most people that review this.
    Dongho's acting,was as good as a diving board's. During this drama,to me,he was like the Korean Kristen Steward.
    The story could've been good,but it was incomplete almost everywhere.I cannot even call it a story to be honest.
    I'm sorry, but this drama was so boring to me that I was barely able to watch it all.I finished it because I was expecting a nice ending.Well,I was wrong.
    I won't even start on Dongho's martial arts skills. Just no.

    Whoever read this review,thank you. My suggestion to people

  • They are adaptations of the same manga Holyland, leading the same story line.Both of them are well done and they offer you a different taste with their acting and shooting.

    When I first sas Dongho on the poster i immediately wanted to see it. The poster looked so cool.
    Even tho the Drama was kinda boring, like he was on the streets all night, I still liked it a lot. It made want to be strong and confident. This drama is only 4 episodes, but it teaches you that ANYONE can do ANYTHING.

    I admit this mini series is not the BEST action series I've watched. I can honestly say that (in my opinion) it is admirable. Dongho's acting may not be Hallyu worthy although the mannerism he established perfected a replica of Kang Yoo in real life. However the magnitude of recognition the episodes get good or bad, it leaves an incomplete impression of having only four episodes and not really having a grounded, firm conclusion. I still wonder if there is a making of part two or if the writer was just messing around. All-in-all not bad word and good job to the actors. I just hope for a more detailed storyline with a complete ending next time.

    The first thing I noticed about this drama was that the background music started with Muse's Hysteria! MUSE! <3<br ></3>And then Rolling in the deep, Adele. :D
