The biggest disappointments of 2013.
CheerfulSoul's look back on the supernatural dramas of this year.
I'm gonna be honest right now. My scoring is a bit misleading. The only reason this drama got a 6 from me is because I feel in love with Song Jae Rim. Besides him (and Cheondung) I really am amazed at mediocrity of this drama. When I first started watching it, it was actually pretty good, but as it got along it just went from pretty good to what the heck.

The story made no sense and was just all over the place. It felt like the writers were just throwing things in just for the sake of it. Especially that last episode. And don't get me started on the fanfic clips...
Then the cast didn't help much. I originally watched this for Cheondung, he wasn't
bad, in fact him and Song Jae Rim are probably the best part of this drama. Gyuri was so emotionless, like I could tell how Kei was feeling but in most of Yeo Joo's scenes it was more like, when did this happen? Did I miss something? Because I couldn' follow her emotions. Then Alex was just like a robot throughout the whole thing.
The drama was a farce. Luckily, Song Jae Rim did make it endurable for me and there were some really cute scenes between him and Gyuri. Actually, there were really cute scenes everywhere not just between Song and Gyuri, so perhaps the fluff had something to do with my scoring. Frankly, I wouldn't really recommend it though.

After reading the reviews I thought this looks fun not the best, it kinda fell into that cheesy smoltz that I like.

The Story:I can see how some people are comparing this to Coffee Prince it has a similar feel If i had to sum this up it's like Ouran with a higher budget, You'r beautiful in that we have the, Tsundra,Dormat nice guy, and adorable almost loli but can drink blond guy. I liked how they got the girl into the situation, she's obsessed with a boy but not because of the reasons one would think. The story kinda resolves around one of those god organizations which means that you have the overall plot while you have a secondary vignettes each day where they help
someone out. The story has many mystical elements that i felt that some of the writers shoehorned in.
Pros:Good reason for the female lead to try to get close to them
They try to flesh out all the characters even if their background can be a bit silly
Cons:The fantasy elements can feel a bit shoehorned in
The story is romantic comedy or at least tries to be but sometimes you get such a tonal shift from comedy to serious topics that feels a bit strange.
The show for some reason felt very flat It might have been the acting or the script but i'l talk about that later.
Acting:The acting was ok I knew about what the characters felt and their motivation but sometimes it felt a bit forced.
Alex:Jun Ji Hoo felt very bland to me, he was the stock i'm a nice perfect pretty boy, he tried very hard but their's isn't much to do with the generic nice guy you smile you laugh that's about it.
Kay:played by Song Jae Rim I felt this character was written as the generic Tsundra he's tough and cold but oh he has a heart of gold we just ned to find it. I felt his acting was really good for this character, This character can easily be played as too much as a jerk or to forced but I think he found a nice middle ground i felt for him when he was going through emotional turmoil and wanted him to succeed.
Jin-This character is the adorable guy, blond hair and energetic all the way, for some reason I felt like he only was acting when the Camera was on him, in the background he's just meh to me. He's got the look but I think their should have been better direction or he should have put in more effort.
Bunny-She's the determined girl who just so happens to fall in love. She quirky sometimes but overall nice I didn't care much about this character she wasn't bad and she wasn't great i just didn't really care. Although if she's dressing as a guy and doesn't anyone to think she's a girl or gay why is she still wearing lipgloss. Also I can totally see where people are coming from when they say she annoys them she's always flip flopping and the last three episodes are her just being indecisive and I know that's how real life can be and what we expect but could you drag it out any longer.
Pros:The Tsundra character is done quite well in this one
Cons:The rest of the class was passable at best and extremely bland and boring at worst.
Rewatch value:Low I mean you could but it doesn't reach that so bad it's good maybe so bad it's slightly intriguing, but in the End it's just bland, hot boys can only carry a story so far.
Overall:I can understand why people don't like it it's boring and feels like they have a checklist of what they need to put in, we need a near death scene for drama, we need a kissing scene where someone misunderstands someone else, rinse and repeat. I personally didn't mind because I like strange supernatural elements but their's alot of better stuff to watch,
