Ok, this is the first drama that i watch when it was still airing..

STORY
It is based on Bu Bu Jing Xin novel from China, so i cannot criticize it for it's weakness.
However, I still think that this show should have more episodes coz the few last episodes seem to be fast forwarded, everything happened so fast and somehow i don't understand why certain people did certain things? There are read more too many characters that have not been developed well enough, so I don't really have attachment with the characters here except maybe 4th Prince character lol.

As for Hae Soo character, I really dislike her character so much. I know the author of that novel created her that way, ok, ok, but i really don't like her. She is weak and too naive. Somehow her sense of justice is twisted too, i don't understand her action.. Or maybe since this show does not have many episodes, i still don't understand hae soo's character.. I don't know. I don't see what's the reason many princes fall for her. She is quite pitiful though, to be trapped between palace politics.

I like the politic but the politic is not deep enough, too focus on romance and romance as the reason for them to act. Certain part/scene seem to be forced just like that without any reasons to back up. Certain action is also questionable and without explanation why they do it. I still left with questions even though the drama has ended..

ACTING
Acting is good, especially for Lee Joon Gi and Kang Ha Neul. IU is also not bad, could be better.
Lee Jon Gi can act perfectly, he can show 4th prince character so well without being disrespectful.

MUSIC
Music is good from the beginning although some musics are too modern for this era.. So it's a bit out of place while listening it during the scene...hahahaha so weird, but if the songs are listened by itself, without the movie, they are catchy..

Re-watch
I don't really re-watch anything

OVERALL
My feeling while watching it just like a roller-coaster, sometimes annoyed, sad, angry, happy, disgusted etc.The ending is satisfying for me, coz i believe hae soo need to get a lesson for her poor actions, but i think she does not even realize what her mistakes. I don't really like the Chinese novel original story, But this show really bring Lee Joon Gi for more fame and I don't mind since he is such a talented actor..

I admit that this drama is great, they put everything in details, like the scenery, the costums, make up, the palace, really beautiful, but i really disike lead female character so it may harm my review..
I still recommend u to watch this drama, if u want something unpredictable u should watch this.




****SPOILERSSSSS!!!**************************************************************************************

When I said certain things seem to be forced without any reason, that Eun's death, oh come on, it's Yo who Killed him and why Eun asked So to finish him instead, it does not make sense.

I also don't understand why woo hee needs to sacrifice her life, yes she is baekje princess but there is other way to stop the war.

Don't understand why Queen Yoo hates her child 4th prince so much but love her other kids so much????! There is no reason at all, Why is she so cold blooded with her own blood? If he is not related to her, i would understand, but he is her own flesh and blood. Also don't understand Kang family, i thought they hate 4th prince but then why they are helping 4th prince to take the throne? I NEED TO SEE MORE WARS!! HAHAHA, i really hope to see how well they fight when 4th prince take the throne, but there is no scene like that hix!

Don't understand why finally Won drink poison when he read ChaeRyung's letter, i mean he is clearly a cruel person whose hobby is to kill his own brothers but why only now he is sad and regret of his action only because of 1 slave that he used before? No idea. And so many more that i could not explain one by one here. The writer nim is weird.

Jung is being a good husband, perhaps if Soo did not die, she will be happy with Jung... Too bad Soo does not have enough time to turn her affection to Jung hahaha

I was bored and wanted to find something short and light in between heavy duty & time consuming k-drama. So i watched Splash Splash Love. At first i did not put attention to this show coz the tittle is kinda irk me, i thought it's a cheesy teenage romance drama, But since it's short, it's kim seul gi from ohmyghost and the rating is quite high, i gave it a try.

Eh read more actually i was so hooked from the first episode. It's so much fun!! The r/s between the king and the gosam is so funny. I really like kim seu gil, she really can pull it off. The story is refreshing, it is also well written, the ending is so unexpectedly beautiful and unpredictable! Definitely different from other k-dramas. I love this show.

I hope more k-dramas like this, do not have so many episodes and filler in between, just film necessary scenes that are related to the story without milking the successful drama too much and keep it short.

Do not hesitate to watch this drama, highly recommended.

Be careful, if u watched signal, your expectation for other k-dramas will be higher! This is really a masterpiece, everything is so detailed, not boring at all, very emotional and full of suspense.. it requires your brain to keep thinking while watching it.. definitely a very very very well written drama, the cast, the writer and director deserve Oscar for this! Everything is just perfect.

Ugh.. i am ashamed that i have read more rated other k-drama with high points, but when i watch this drama, it just surpassed all my imagination. I Couldn't believe that a TV series could this damn good that i need to edit all my ratings for other k-dramas (i was too generous for ratings), now i have edited all other k-drama ratings after i watched this one coz this one is definitely an 11 out of 10!

i highly recommend this drama, of course, but again, be careful , the feeling while watching other drama will not be the same again.

From the beginning, the story is already strong, my emotion is like mixed together. I feel really sad without being manipulated, true from the bottom of my heart. When i feel angry, i also feel so angry, i cannot control my emotion when i watch this, there is no break at all, everything is so tense until my brain want to explode. My heart pain when i watch the story about detective park's brother. This is really a beautiful drama. :,)

I don't know, i really like this drama. It might not have such an unique theme like other dramas but they are so cute together despite the age gap, gosh!!

What i like about this drama:
1. It has a very kind hearted male lead, OMG, i think this is the best male lead character in k-drama!!!
He is so sweet and he loves to help others, not only to his woman read more but to everyone.
I always adore this kind of character even in real life!! He is also very matured that's why he can get along with a 39 years old woman :D
2. There is no evil villain who tries to kill main leads
3. Very light romantic comedy very fun to watch
4. So many sweet stuff between the main leads
5. Damn funny especially in the beginning of this dramas
6. I like strong successful female lead with a killer personality like ji yeon
7. OMG park seo joon is damn sexy and hot here
8. Their chemistry is all over the place!! I don't find their age gap is weird because their chemistry is so strong and everything seems natural to watch.
9. Hot sizzling kiss between main leads, i never really like kiss in kdramas because it seems awkward and forced but their make out scene is damn hot, natural yet funny
10. There are many lessons to learn from this drama because it's quite relatable

What i don't like:
Almost nothing that i don't like, maybe if i want to be nit picky, perhaps the middle of the episodes when the photojournalist return, it's a bit draggy, i'm also a bit sad coz there are so little funny moments, but i do understand her decision coz i also have a friend who took back her ex despite of so much chemistry between her and her current bf, coz in r/s we need to think about logic and reality not only heart, but anyway the r/s with her ex is not working out well for her since it has become as dry as salted fish and my friend learns her lesson well, in my friend's case, she lost the current bf already, and she cannot have the same feel with her ex thus she broke up with him. Too bad coz i never seen her happier with guys other than her current bf that time, i also dun understand why she choose her ex back, i guess r/s is complicated. She wants to get married soon coz her ex already proposed her and wanted to get married.

In this show, dong ha still wait for her, it's so sweet, i don't know whether in real life there is a guy like that though. I think it's too good to be true hahaha.

All in all, i like this show.

This show is so refreshing. I don't agree with some people who said that the show is struggling about the genre, I mean does a show need to be categorized? If it's a romance, does it only need to talk about love? I will get bored if the show only talking about one theme.

I think the charm about this show is because of it's mix combination (comedy, romance, thriller, mystery), just read more like cooking, when u cook, if u only use one spice,HELLOW?? it would be so boringgggggggg! U should add more spices to make it flavorful. I like this show that it talks mainly about human emotion and r/s in it's own unique way.( I laughed hard, I scared, I was curious, I was angry, it also makes my heart feels warm, etc. mix feelings) It also makes me sitting in front of tv to watch this show until finish, coz i was curious about the ending.

The characters have their own growth too during the show. I mean, they become better person, they are not perfect but they try to be better, that's why i like this drama. I love human interaction is this drama as well. You should watch the show yourself.

STORY:
I love story about cooking, i love how the main couple becomes closer and become better person in their personalities and career too. They support each other to be better. I cannot explain well here, it just has it's own charm that makes me glued. It doesn't have ridiculous plot too. I feel that i learnt a lot from this movie about our life, about doing anything that u want while u r still alive. If not, u will regret it. The ghost and the girl r/s is also unique and they care to each other, the girl learnt a lot from the ghost. I also feel pity about the villain here because of his past, i dun hate him, i just feel pity, the show did not allow me to hate people here hehehe, that's why it's a plus point too. Making me feel that bad people also have their own story behind so i think i will have sympathy to this kind of people.

ACTING:
Superb, they are very convincing and makes me moved emotionally. I like jo jung suk now haha, park bo young is so cute and can act well, Kim seul gi is also daebak, Lim Ju-Hwan is very convincing to act as a psycho.

MUSIC:
It's good, i have downloaded the ost from itunes and i am listening it right now.

REWATCH:
Eh, i have watched it 2 times ahaha in fact, after one episode ended, i repeat some scenes that i like.

OVERALL:
A warm heart-ed drama, should have given 10/10, dunno why it only gets 8.7 score, haiz.

Umm At first, i thought this drama is like other romantic comedy drama. But when i watched the first episode, there is something about this drama that makes me feel interested to keep watching it. Normally i will drop the drama after i watch the Pilot (1st eps) if it's not interesting.

But it feels kind of different and quite funny yet not too ridiculously funny. The situation is very real, like read more in the normal world where it's not only talking about couple love r/s, it's also talking about friends r/s, family r/s, colleague r/s, it's just complete, that;s why it's not boring at all. The pace is just nice, not too slow and not too long. It's quite unpredictable too, as i didn't think that the plot will get quite serious in the middle of the series. It also explain why certain people behave that way. People always have their own story and background to begin with, so we can understand each other more.

The protagonists are not perfect too, normally in other drama, the protagonist seems very perfect and the plot is cheesy, but this drama is not like that at all, it teaches us about hard-work to love people surround us, Love is not always like in fairy tale where people will live happily ever after, we need to put effort in order to love. Sometimes we also need to priorities others in order to love. So this story is very real. That's why i like this very much.

It certainly worth your time on watching this drama. It's not too heavy until u want to scream dying thinking about the plot, nor it is too light until u feel bored. Not at all, it's just nice to watch it after workday. It will enlighten your mood with it's quirky plot and witty jokes.

I quite like this series in the beginning. It's a warm and funny movie.
I also like how this movie turns the second lead female to be friend with the first female lead.
Love rival doesn't mean making people into bitch hahaha.

actually the story is so typical, rich chaebol likes poor girl. Nothing new, just that the girl is pretty strong.

I like all the acting here, everything seems natural. I read more watch this drama because I like Ji Sung.
But all the castings here are wonderful, especially president Cha hahaha.

But towards the end of drama, it's getting boring and annoying, it just dragged. Like typical drama, there is a big misunderstanding, poor communication between them, I actually have skipped 4 episodes for those unnecessary mellow drama, i just hate the sadness and tears that caused by misunderstanding, it's just unimportant, i skipped and just watch the last episode hahaha, and just read the recap in between when i dun understand. Coz i don not want to waste my time watching a very lengthy kdrama that has pointless plot just to lengthen the drama and episodes.

This is a great movie that i watched at the cinema. I don't regret it at all.
The acting is superb even the kid can acting well. The zombies are scary and believable.

Even though it's a movie about zombie, doesn't mean it doesn't have meaningful story behind it.
Surprisingly it has a warm story about father and daughter relationship. Normally western movie that is about zombies doesn't have good story but read more train to busan has a very strong story as the backbone of this movie. It makes you feel sad dan warm at the same time.

This kind of high quality movie from asia esp. south korea really makes me feel proud as an asian, we, as asian can also make very good movie, i hope it can win oscar lol under foreign movie category.

Thank you Train To Busan! Thank you to writers, directors, actors and all crew for making such a proud movie like this.

Oh My God, I am speechless, this series made me hooked from the first episode. The story is brilliant and unexpected. I won't even mention on how handsome Ji Chang Wook is, but the acting is superb, the action is also good! This series is really one of a kind, comparable with Signal.

I don't know why i only watch it now.. haha silly me. Luckily i decided to watch this, coz read more i read the rating is not good so i judge it, but now i watch it and omg, i dunno what's the heck is wrong with the rating? The story is good! I laughed, i cried, i worried, etc. It has a good plot, haiz! I am gonna miss this drama! I have binge watched it for two days hahaha, I am gonna watch it again, yes! it's that good! Very recommended!

I LOVE ALL THE ACTORS HERE! They have their own story and backgrounds, THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THERE IS NO STUPID FLASHBACKS hahaha! I just hate flashbacks just to fill airtime, but this one doesn't have it and I LIKE IT!

Yes, i am gonna edit my other drama's review coz this one is perfect and not comparable to other drama! Thank you healer, u have kept me entertained!!

PERFECT SCORE 100/100!!!

I like how realistic this drama is. Very heartwarming drama about real situation in life, how to cope with sadness, anger, love, forgiveness. It contains life lesson. Beautiful story, love it so much! I can learn a lot while watching this drama. Sometimes people also have this kind of problems in life too and the pain is real. Life might not always be fair and we need to cope and face the read more situation ourselves. However, present and future are more important than our past, especially our loved ones who always support us, let's just focus on that :) coz we don't even have enough time in our life to hate, it's better to spend our time to love.

However, for some people they might find it boring hahaha. it does not have suspense at all that makes u super curious. For me, i don't really wait for the next episode nor i need to binge watch it, coz yes, it has slow plot, coz it's a drama that is about everyday life. So i just enjoy it every now and then until i finish it. but it's a wonderful ride.

Actually i don't like drama coz it's full of cliche and boring stuff, but wow how i was so wrong, after i watch this drama. I even watch this drama because someone forced me to watch this. :P

I finished watching this drama in 3 days, when the show is soooo good, i just cannot stop watching it. The story is so different. It's funny yet very sad, i cannot describe it. read more My emotion was like up and down when i was watching it. It's just wrecking my emotion, i understand now, how my friend has been tru. Coz i have a depressed friend who sometimes i cannot understand why she is acting like that, I thought she only wants to get attention from other people, but i now i can understand her better. People with mental illness cannot control their behavior, the illness just play with their life, and causing so much harms.

I really hope we and society think twice or thrice before we treat someone else, coz if we are not careful, someone might get hurt and they will be depressed. Anyway, i need to review this drama haha.

I have watched this drama 2 times, going to watch it again. Coz when i feel sad and if i want to relief my emotion, i will just watch this kind of drama. hufff... I like all do hyun's characters and i like shin se gi the most, coz this is a part of cha do hyun that needs to be healed. His characters are wonderful and Ju Sung can act really well, natural and convincing. When i watch it, i feel that the drama has absorb me into that world, and i forgot that it is just a movie. I really can feel all the emotion in this drama, wow, the acting is damn good. I LIKE JI SUNG!

I mean my life is not so boring anymore after i discover that a drama can be this satisfying and wonderful. Gonna watch other good drama soon, Thanks Ji Sung, Thanks kill me, heal me team for making this wonderful show. I really appreciate it.

The music is also awesome. Thanks for the soundtrack team! Especially auditory hallucination, it brings up the soul and emotion of the scenes in this drama. I am gonna sleep while listening to this music :)) U GUYS DID A GOOD JOB!! THANK YOU!!!

If not for the ending, i would give it a 10 ahahahaha, although it's understandable since it needs to stay true to the history. The plot is good since the beginning, different people have different character and the plot twist is also good. Acting is superb!!! as expected from Kang ho song and jo jung suk and all the casts here. Just take care of your heart to watch til the end.

I was interested to watch this drama coz it's so damn funny!! Very light hearted and enjoyable, But then after eps 11, how come it become so serious? I still continue watching it since it's already halfway, but i kind of miss the laugh that i had in the beginning of the drama. I like to see how silly gong shim and ahn dan tae. But then everything becomes boring about uncovering read more ahn dan tae family's mystery, not a good approach writer nim! It shld be kept short and continue the focus about gong shim!

This is actually a good drama, because it teaches you something. After watching this, you will think about life. I like some of the quotes here. It taught you about courage and justice. The leads here are not perfect but they grow in the series, we can see how they become a better person by the end of the story.

For my preference, I like attorney cha more than park soo ha. read more Maybe it's kinda weird to have noona and younger boy relationship haha. i think it's better if it does not have love story between Soo-Ha and Hye-Sung. Perhaps they can stay as brother and sister.

Anyway, apart of that, well, the story is good.
