Where do I begin to tell the story of how great a drama can be? Because this drama was great. Although it made me spend 20 hours of my life on an emotional rollercoaster, I can't complain because it was just so good. There were many scenes that broke my heart and a lot more that were so full of suspense that I was really anxious most of the time. Even when read more the writers were kind enough to endow us with a nice and fluffy scene, because that only meant that something really awful is going to happen.

Even though there was a lot of angst, I found myself smiling happily and even laughing out loud because some scenes were just ridiculously funny and just made me happy. Those scenes were very welcomed breathers between all this anxiousness and nervousness.

I actually liked all the characters (except the root of all evil Choi Jin Cheol) and the way they all were intertwined. Their relationships were interesting to follow and I was especially fond of the relationship between Sun Woo and Young Hoon, Sun Woo and Chul Min and of course Sun Woo and Min Young.
The interactions between each one of them and that everyone has some kind of a relationship with the others was great. Especially since we didn't know from the very beginning where they knew each other from.

To be perfectly honest I am not such a big fan of the time-travel-theme. But I found myself enjoying this drama very much. Although I found the beginning and the ending somehow confusing or just too much for my brain to grasp I didn't think that the whole time travel thing was difficult to follow. Even though that's often the case in such dramas.
But I don't think that not understanding the ending is a problem because I believe that this was intended by the writers. Everyone can interpret the ending the way he wants. There are many possibilities. And depending on which ending you choose it's either a happy or a sad ending.
For my part I still don't know if it has a bad or a good ending. But the last episode made me equally happy and anxious. But I guess the happiness or the funny parts in the last episode exceed the sad ones.

Nine_ Nine Times Time Travel is one of the best dramas that I have watched. It is awesome. The story and the characters are great and for me there is nothing more to wish for. Although at first I wasn't sure if it would be worth my time I am so happy I gave it a chance.
And I think that's also what you ought to do.

First: this is a brilliant series and I wished I could give it a 10/10 because it was that good. But sadly not good enough. I would have given it a 10 until the 12th episode (or was it the 13th?). But then the drama lost a bit of its quality. Episode 13 to 16 I would rate between 8 and 9 and episode 17 would be a 10 again. I don't read more mean that episodes 13-16 are bad, but they aren't as good as the other ones. You could feel that something changed and this change wasn't much to my liking. Other people might have liked this change, but not me. I still enjoyed watching this drama, because it's just fabulous with great actors, good music and heart-warming scenes.

Master's sun was the first horror-drama I've watched and I thought that it was pretty cool (although the horror decreased in the further episodes a lot).

One of the most important things for me to like a drama are the supporting characters and I have to say that hey were really awesome in this drama. I mean, how could one dislike Secretary Kim or Kang Woo? Even Tae Yi-Ryung was adorable.

And about the main couple .. I honestly don't know what to say. I liked them big time! Gong Sil was such a cute person and it really surprised me that I liked her character. I tend to dislike such simple-minded characters, but there was no way I would dislike Gong Sil (thumbs up, Gong Hyo Jin!). And Joong Won, our little master was also a great character. I couldn't help but fall in love with him, despite his somehow rotten character. He made me laugh everytime he told Gong Sil to "get lost" with his epic characteristic gesticulation. Although it was really mean I couldn't help but laugh my ass off. Haha.

All in all it was a really great drama. With probably on of the best endings ever. You must know that I'm pretty much hooked on happy endings. And I say it was great. Although I hoped so much that Gong Sil and Joong Won would marry .. but I can't help it. Drama-makers apparently dislike marriages *shrug

I enjoyed watching this drama thouroughly. It was kind of refreshing and honestly it was the first drama I've watched where a guy dressed as a girl instead of a girl pretending to be a boy. All in all it was really good, but I still can't rate this drama higher, because I've watched many dramas that left me more breathless and were just awesome. And this drama can't really be compared read more to them.
Don't misunderstand me. I mean it was really good and very cute. I liked watching the characters interact with each other and I honestly wished that this drama would have been enlarged so that I could enjoy it more. It is an easy watch but I actually prefer dramas which are longer with fully developed stories and characters.

The figures in this drama were so cute and so fun to watch. I would've liked to cuddle with a lot of them (not with Tackle, Ackle or whatever).
At the beginning I thought that Tae Joon would be annoying and vain but he turned out to be a very fun person who made me laugh more than once. And I loved how he gave his best to win over Irene, haha.
Irene on the other hand was kind of strange. I wonder how she survived in school without talking. Didn't anyone find her behavior somehow suspicious or anything?
Actually I liked "Irene" more when she was Hyun Woo and when Geu Rim found out about "her" identity (ääh, confusing, haha). "She's" really such a gorgeous guy. "She" looks good as a girl as well as a boy. That's something, eh?
And the ending was so cute.

Guys, you should definitely give this drama a try. I don't regret watching it even a bit and I can imagine rewatching this very well. Have fun!

What should I write? Where do I start? This drama is probably the worst thing to happen to me. And with worst I mean best. Honestly, this drama ruined me and I'm still trying to figure out what to do with my life.
Omg, I don't know what to say. Maybe I should stop writing about my feelings ..

Well, this drama was really good. The story was brilliant and the characters read more were really well developed.
What I really liked was that there were only a few persons in this drama (if you ignore the parents and the police, etc.) and that the whole drama found place in just one place (again with a few exceptions). This way we got familiar with the place and got to know the characters better.

White Christmas reminded me a little bit of SAW. A person playing around with people and terrorizing them. But White Christmas plays on a more psychological level whereas SAW is more brutal and bloodier.

I watched this drama in one day which wasn't hard considering that it only has 8 episodes and I honestly felt empty after finishing it. This ending wasn't what I was rooting for. I really didn't expect it to end this way. For me this was the worst thing that could happen. I was just shocked and felt like tearing my hair out. I was so heartbroken and mindblown. I am honestly still not over it. And I still hear this awful/awesome music in my ear that was often the reason for my goosebumps because it fit perfectly into this drama and was really helpful in creating an emotionally disturbing atmosphere.

So you are asking yourself why I would probably not rewatch this drama if it was so good? Well, it WAS good, but I honestly couldn't go through all this pain again. It would be too much. Generally I am not such a fan of psychological dramas/movies/etc. because they mess too much with me and devastate me.
I actually just gave it a chance because of the cast and the good reviews I read about it and also because I liked the description of it.

At the end I want to say that you should give this drama a try BUT if you are more sensitive than I am (as if you know how sensitive I am, haha) you should give this drama a wide berth.

I have to say that this is a very refreshing drama if you start watching it with an open mind and an open heart (does that sound weird?). At first I was suspicious of how this drama will turn out but I found it to be a good surprise. It was funny and light-hearted and it just made me feel good. Moreover I haven't watched a drama that made me feel this read more way.

I loved the characters and the interactions between each of them and there weren't really any characters that I couldn't stand at all. It was just that I liked some more and some less. Even the "evil" characters were somehow lovable. At least in my opinion. What I enjoyed the most was the relationship of Nam Da Jung with the kids and the way they grew to like her. That was really cute. Also her relationship with the prime minister was awesome. I loved the way they handled their problems and actually TALKED things out. Yes, you read right. They talked, which happens rarely in the land of korean dramas. And that was a really great experience for me.

I also loved that you could see how the characters changed throughout the drama. I don't think that anyone stayed the same as in the beginning. But I think some character developments were better than others. For some of the characters it just felt like their development was rushed or like they didn't really change but the circumstances changed and made them behave differently which made them seem like they developed even if they didn't really (does that make sense?).

I guess I could and would have rated this drama differently if it weren't for the last few episodes (I blame the one-episode-extension). As I said this drama was somehow a new experience for me that I liked very much. But something changed in the last few episodes that I can't really point my finger at. It felt as if the characters kind of behaved out of their character. They did things that they shouldn'T do.
Furthermore there were one or two plot twists that I hate in any korean drama.
But still, I don't think that the ending was half as bad as most of the people who have watched this drama said. It just wasn't at the same niveau as the rest of the drama but it still was quite ok.
It's not the ending itself that I disliked, but some events in the last few episodes that spoiled the drama a bit.

All in all I am very glad that I watched this drama and I don't regret one second of the time I spent on it.

Actually I wasn't sure if I should give this drama 4/10 or 5/10 and I am still unsure if my choice is the right choice.
It's undeniable (for me) that "Pretty Boy" is one of the worst dramas I have ever watched. Which is really sad considering that I liked the first few episodes a lot. I honestly thought that this is a very promising drama.

At the beginning I really liked read more Bo Tong's character and her fangirling over Ma Te. It was really funny and sometimes I could recognize my fangirling self in her behaviour. But as time went by I didn't get her obsession with Ma Te. It didn't make any sense. Ma Te wasn't a jot interested in her and only used her to reach his goals and although Bo Tong knew this she didn't care much. She deified her Oppa and scaled down her value. Her sole reason for breathing was Ma Te. She was diligent and brave, that's an undeniable fact. But without Ma Te she wasn't really living. She had no real purpose in life. And that was kind of annoying.
I found her more bearable when she was together with David. They had many things in common and I just liked their relationship. And I honestly wanted her to end up with him. But this only went on till he was deeply in love with her because then David somehow turned into a male version of fangirling Bo Tong. That was a pity.
I think that was the point when I couldn't wait for this drama to end. I even thought of dropping it.
In general the idea of this drama is good, but it wasn't really well executed. Many things were overdone and repeated until they were luke-warm and just boring.
Also this whole thing about Ma Te and his woman started very interesting but it somehow lost it's meaning on the journey. At
some point I couldn't understand why he did have to conquer
this women. And I also didn't understand why he stopped using the things he had learned from the women he conquered. It didn't make much sense.
But I guess what annoyed me the most was the whole talk about the password. I was annoyed by his mother when she didn't allow him to see his father because he didn'T have the password. This is so stupid. What kind of parent would do this to his own child? Although at the end it was explained why this password was needed for me it still was superfluous.

What also made me cringe were the crying scenes in this drama. I couldn't stand them at all and was always happy when the person who cried stopped crying. It was even worse than those open-eyes-kisses. Really, it made me just feel very uncomfortable.

I didn't like this drama very much but I wouldn't say that I regret watching it. There were some funny scenes and I didn't hate it all the time. That's why you should give it a try if you like the story/the actors. Read some reviews and forge a personal opinion. I believe that there were a lot of people out there who actually liked this drama.

I first started watching the movie because I saw some really cool gifs of "Antique Bakery". And I have to say, that I was not disappointed.
I sitll am not sure what exactly made me like this movie, but I guess it is the characters and their unique storys and struggles. it's a movie about people who have to fight their demons of the past and still look forward with enthusiasm and read more hope.
I also liked the relationship between those 4 men and it made me kind of jealous that I will never be able to be in between them, go visit their coffee shop or even try one of Seon Woo's gorgeous cakes (really, this movie made me so hungry).
Anyway .. at the end of the movie I felt somehow lonely because the life of those people will continue without me knowing about it. Hmm.

I honestly don't know what to say. This drama is my all-time (yeah, i still haven't watched that much dramas) favorite. Everything is great. And even the things about the story that I didn't like (like the ending. I mean, what was that?)just make the story even better. If the drama was just happy-go-lucky i wouldn't love it even half as much I do now. It's the perfect mix of drama, romance read more and action. I am currently rewatching it and I still love. Maybe I appreciate it now even more than the first time.
One of the most things I like about this drama are the Woodalchi-warriors. They made me so happy and sad while watching the drama. So much feelings. And they just give me the needed dosis of Bromance. Bromance is essential to me. Ah, what should I do? I think I took an overdose. Damn, this is so addicting ..

Ah, I've nearly forgotten to write about the villain: I think Gi Cheol is my favorite villain of all time. I admittedly wanted him dead most of the time, but I dind't hate him. I could even feel something like sympathy toward him.

All in all a really great drama. definitely worth watching. Once. Or twice. Or thrice. Omo ..

This movie was so disturbing. At least i felt disturbed by it. Although I knew it would be a dramatic movie, I thought that it would have its funny moments. But I should've thought again because this movie was nothing near "funny". It was just dramatic.

This movie practically shows you the worst thing that could happen after a person has been raped. I am not sure how much you can take read more that seriously because everything was overdramatised but rape is strictly speaking one of the worst thing that could happen to a person.
But the worst thing for me was attitude of the people towards this issue. Honestly I couldn't believe my eyes.

Generally speaking I think at least 80% of the people in this drama aren't really normal. They should all visit the psychologist. Really, that's no joke.

After Kim Eun Young has been raped and some things ocurred I figured that this movie would never have a happy ending. And I was right. But I don't want to say more than this (No spoilers alowed).

All in all it was a good movie. And I think you all should give it a try. It is different than other things I have seen.

I actually can't believe this drama is over. It's been a long time since a drama made me feel the things that 'Fated to Love You' made me feel.
It is a drama that is funny and sad at the same time. It makes you happy and anxious but it always makes you look forward to what is yet to come. You can never get enough of it. At least that's how read more I felt about this drama.
Since I haven't seen the original taiwanese version, I didn't really know what was going to happen (although I was spoiled a few times because people couldn't stop sharing their knowledge) so I was often surprised with the happenings in the drama.

"Fated to Love You" started with being a really funny drama. There was a lot of comedy and love, which is exactly what you expect from a romantic comedy. At that time I watched one or two episodes without subtitles (although I didn't understand a word of course) because I just couldn't wait for the next episode and for the deep love you could watch on-screen.
But the cuteness didn't last long. In the middle of the drama (11/12 episode) "Fated to Love You" somehow took a melodramatic turn which I actually didn't hate. Because it didn't feel out of place and it somehow fit perfectly into the the story.
The thing that I may have "disliked" (oops, sorry drama, I really love you to bits) is that I sometimes had the feeling that the drama dragged on (after episode 14 a bit). The angst continued on too long. Not that I actually minded it because I could watch the snail-couple until the end of the world.
But to be honest, this few episodes made me actually think of deducting 1 point from the overall score, but that wouldn't have been fair because this drama was just awesome to the core and I just loved it so much. Really, there are no words that can describe how much love I have for this drama and all the characters. I simply loved everyone of them. If you are patient and don't judge anyone of them and actually give them a chance, they will prove you at the end that they are worth your love.
Just don't be judgmental and try to put yourselves in their places. I promise you, you won't regret it.
Learn to love them and you will enjoy every moment of interaction between each of those characters.

Another thing that I really loved about this drama was the music. It was simply awesome. Whether we're talking about the OST or the other soundracks that were played throughout the show, the music was simply genius and it accompanied the scenes perfectly. It sometimes made you laugh and sometimes made you cry.

All in all I am really glad that I have discovered this drama because it's a masterpiece in my eyes. In the last few weeks I was sucked in to deeply in the World of Mi Young and Gun and the rest of the other beautiful persons as that I could forget about them in the near future. This drama will always have a special place in my heart.

PS.: I f you have any tips on how I should move on, don't hesitate to tell me. Thank you!

This was probably one of the funniest dramas I have ever watched. At some points I had to laugh so much I had to stop watching for a while. I am not sure if it was only because Dokko Jin was such a strange and perverted stalker who did really strange and sometimes very embarrassing things or because of something else. It was kind of surprising that such a cocky and narcissistic read more person could behave this way. I have never seen a character as childish as him. And he was so sometimes so innocent which was really cute.

I've read a few times that Gu Ae Jung had no personality and that she let Dokko Jin do whatever he wants with her, but I absolutely don't agree. Actually I think that Gu Ae Jung is a really strong person who knows what she wants and how to get it. The only problem is that she doesn't have the luck needed to achieve her goals. And that's exactly the point where Dokko Jin helps her. Things she can't do because of her circumstances he does to help her. And there is really nothing wrong with helping people. She also helped him a lot. Moreover they were in love so that was really ok.
Even when she "followed" him around because she loved him I would have rather said she fought for his love and didn't give up. And that's why she got the boy at the end.

Although I watch many (*cough) dramas with love triangles I can't getting over the second-lead-syndrome. Although I wanted her to end up with Dokko Jin I sometimes wished that she would still somehow end up with the doctor. He was so sweet and it was so sad that he didn't get the girl. I wanted to hug him and comfort him. Poor guy.

What I also found really enjoying was the relationship between Dokko Jin and Gu Ae Jung's nephew Ding Dong (haha, he kept calling him Ding Dong till the very end) and the relationship between Dokko Jin and his manager. His mangager was also very adorable. I liked him a lot.

All in all this was a really nice drama. The reason I didn't rate it any higher is that it's not been so long that I've watched "The Master's Sun" and I couldn't help not to compare both dramas at some points. I sometimes had the feeling that "The Master'S Sun" was the better version of "The Greatest Love". But that's just my opinion.

Aah, I nearly forgot! This drama had many kisses which were not awkward at all. The were actually one of the best kisses ever seen in kdramaland!

Well, I can't deny that this drama was fun to watch. It was funny and made me even laugh at times, but still there were some episodes hat make me wonder what he writers were thinking when they wrote this drama.
As long as you didn't think about the things that happened, everything was (almost) ok. But I am not the kind of person that can blank out their thoughts while watching read more a drama. Sometimes the whole story and he development seemed so messy that I was really annoyed while waching and I was often on the verge of dropping it. But the curiosity and my love for the absolute adorable and funny side characters made me stay.

The first few episodes were just fun to watch. Although there were some mistakes it wasn't hard for me to turna a blind eye to them. Bu things started to go downhill when Eun Jae started to fall in love with Mu Yeol and turned in to an annoying jealous girl.
But the sweetness of Manager Kim and DOng Ah coaxed me into giving this drama a chance. And thanksfully the protagonist "soon" got a hold of herself and the drama was yet again enjoyable to watch and I didn't have the urge to fast forward things anymore.

Until the end it was entertaining although near the end things got really messy and the characters behaved out of character and some things just got srange and didn't make sense.
But at last they gave us a somehow cute ending.

This was a really good drama. I enjoyed watching it most of the time.
After watching episode I actually felt like dropping this drama, because Lawyer Jang'S character irritated me so much and I had the feeling she was not willing to grow and change some of her rotten (sorry, haha) features. Thankfully she changed and proved me that she figured out that she can'T continue the way she did before. [I read more actually enjoyed watching her, but I thought that some of her character traits don't match with her being a Lawyer].
The story was good and I was really so happy that I didn't have to see Joon Gook all the time. He was such a creepy person who made me have goosebumps all over my body. Jung Woong In did his job really amazingly. I hated him, when he did something despicable, believed him even so I knew he was lying and I had sympathy for him although I knew that he was a monster. Really well done.
Generally Ienjoyed watching all characters. I actually liked allof them. Wait .. no, that's a lie. There was one person who I hated even more than Joon Gook and that is Seo Dae Seok (Do Yeon'S father). He was such a detestable character. I really wanted him punished.

Before submitting my review I have to say something about the ending: You can't believe how relieved I was that this drama had a happy ending. I was expecting a really sad ending with at least one dead person. But this dind't occur. And for that I am very thankful.
The ending was really good. I liked especially the part, where Soo Ha was talking about all the people who brought him to be the person he is now. It showed how much everyone of those characters improved and how the affected each other. That was reall good.

I guess that's it :)

I probably should give this drama a 9/10 but I think it wouldn't be right. Not because it was not good or something, but because my feeling tells me that I would overrate it if I gave it a 9 or even a 10.

This drama was definitely one of the most enjoyable dramas I have watched and I honestly have to say that it's been a long time that I felt read more so good about a drama. I had to love very often because the characters were just amazing and funny and lovable and I just had to root for them. I fangirled so much during watching this drama.
The best thing about it is definitely the bromance. But I am generally speaking a sucker for bromance. I enjoy watching dramas with bromance more than romance. This kind of brotherly romance is just so sincere and honest that you can't help but love it. Especially since the person's involved are all men over the age of 40 who are behaving like teenage boys in the bodies of grown-up men.

I don't know what to say right now. I am still high from watching this drama and I just can't describe with words how much I liked it. Moreover I am probably not objective because this last episode was just amazing and I am still not over it. So if you want to know if this is your cup of tea or not I recommend you to watch this and judge for yourselves. have a good time!

I liked the ending of this movie a lot. Like a lot a lot! It was really good and I love happy endings like this. I didn't expect it to end this way and that was a very nice surprise.
If it weren't for the ending I would have given this movie a rating of 6/10 because I didn'T actually get why it is so hyped. I've read a lot about how read more good this movie is, so I was a bit disappointed as I came to watch it. I expected a real cool sassy girl, bt I just got a very mean and harassing b**ch. And I so often had the desire to kick her a** because she annoyed me so much and I just couldn't stand her character. I hate bossy people and control freaks and she possessed both features. But as their story went on I could understand her a little bit better.

After all it wasn't a bad movie and you probably should watch it because it seemingly is a classic. It's a nice pastime.
