    This the best teen drama so far! I love how the story was plotted. But, i was a bit discontented with it because there are some events that are not clear. Anyway, the music is so good! I just can't stop thinking about this drama! Omg! I feel like i wanna watch it over and over again. It actually tells us that through music we can overcome every problems. Inspirational it is! When you are looking for korean teen drama, i recommend you to absolutely watch this! Superb! :)

    I started watching Monstar only cause I was curious on Junhyung's acting skills,but after watching the first episode I found my self wanting to watch more.The story is a simple one but the characters are intresting.
    Junhyung did a great job with his sassy acting and Dahee really captures the moody feeling.No need to mention Kang Ha Neul's charisma (he alone,can be the reason to watch the show :P).I wasn't very satisfied with the main lead,not Ha Se Yoon's acting ,but Min Se Yi as a character.
    The other three members of the drama's "team" are kind of cliche,but the actors did a good work as supporting roles.
    This drama isn't a master piece but its definetly GOOD.I was watching it while it was

  • Monstar reminds me so much of love in disguise... The plot is very similar in the way that a star goes to school and falls for a girl who in the beginning dislikes him and likes another guy.

  • Both involve a group of high school students with very different personalities who come together through unknown circumstances. They all have a passion for music and use that as a means to bond together.

    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.

      You should see her in Potato Star. She's improved there :) And it's such a good drama <3 I mean, Yeo Jin Goo's in there ;) He makes it even more awesome.
    • mszither Dec 27, 2013
      I think she portrayed her emotion just fine, not to ask much, but its her character that makes it emotionless at times.

    If you're a true B2uty and wanna squeal over Junhyung's elegant egoistic cuteness, YES PLEASE WATCH THIS!

    i came in with no expectations (except maybe that i'll see jung joonyoung.. lol) and although there are some characters that i absolutely hate, and the storyline wasn't super original, i still liked it. i like how they pay attention to the side characters (who are at times preferable to the main characters) and the music in this drama is just amazing. some bits were a bit off, and i hated the idea of the main couple getting together at the beginning, but by the end of the drama i was okay.

    main point: the music makes up for a lot of the shortcomings.

    so much hate for a few of those characters though like seriously. so annoying. the ending was eh but i guess it's not the worst ending they could've had.
  • tokkipanda Oct 28, 2013
    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.

    • Alexija Oct 22, 2013
      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.
