I was totally surprised by how good this was. Looking at the director and writer, I personally don't think either has done any standout work. Usually with dramas, the writer is a good clue if it will be good or not, and her last drama (Wild Romance) was nothing special. This on the other hand felt completely different, and had the type of smart writing that I would attribute to some of read more the most well written dramas like the Reply series.
I completely fell in love with each of these girls. They were all unique and interesting. And even as a guy, I find them all very relatable. While of course there are still extremes, like multiple characters having dark pasts coming back to haunt them (as well as a psycho ex), it still never fell into cliches or silly situations that we are so used to in most dramas. It told it's story with care, with mostly relying on the girls' relationship with each other to push the story further, rather than throwing extreme situations or crazy plot twists at them. They had such great chemistry with each other that you really felt that they were roommates. They were close and friendly, yet also awkward and weary of each other, and that felt real.
I did not want it to end. Twelve episodes was not enough. The way it ended didn't even feel like it should have ended there. They could come out with another episode now, and it wouldn't even feel like a new season, just a proper continuation. I really hope there is another season, but that is a rare thing in K-dramaland, so I won't get my hopes up.

Ah, I started this drama for all the wrong reasons. I was very snobby about it and thought it was a no brainier that I'd have to dump it. But I have a four episode rule. Imagine my surprise when by episode 4 I moved straight to 5 and 6, and didn't look back.

Grinning like a fool, smiling, warm and fuzzies are all words/descriptions I used a lot when reviewing episodes read more for Lucky Romance. Not to mention insanely crazy! Lucky Romance is a totally over the top drama and that's where it's power is. It doesn't take itself too seriously. Which is good because there's so many plot holes this thing is Swiss. ^_-

The main idea is that Bo Nui's sister is in a comma. She believes that she is unlucky and bad spirits surround her so she's become very superstitious. All in the hope that by doing these actions her sister will some day wake up. It's madness, and I had a hard time connecting with Bo Nui at first. However, I thought the writer did a good job in showing that because of all these horrible events she felt powerless. By doing this she could “help” her sister. Bo Nui's belief that she causes everything bad around her can be frustrating, but at least you understand it.

The real insanity of Lucky Romance is it's plot. Which you can't really wrap up in the synopsis. The plot shouldn't work, but it does!!! Suspend belief and just go with the goofy. It does have a more dramatic tone with Bo Nui's sister, but this is very much a comedy.

Su Ho started out as the typical cold character. Quite honestly I thought he was just going to be another jerk that they disguised by being a genius and leave him at that. But he's so warm and adorable! I would watch a video of just all his scenes. He was the main reason I pretty much had a smile during the entire show!

The side characters were so much fun especially Bo Nui and Su Ho's best friends, respectively Dal Nim and Ryang Ha. Watching them finally realize they liked each other was perfect. Though it annoys me that Dal Nim had to get a makeover to get the guy. However, if I think about it they were the only other characters that truly get fleshed out.

Gary and Amy were just love obstacles and besides being part of the game the leads are working on together through most of the show I don’t think they added much. Even with back stories they were just love drama add ins. The parents of Su Ho as well. I really liked the Zeze team, Su Ho's employees, but they were utilized to the bare minimum. Which was a shame the time we got with them was great and I really enjoyed their personalities.

It's an odd observation but I also liked the look of this drama because of the cast. Sometimes the actors and actresses look so much a like. However, everyone has a very unique look and I never confused anyone. I know it's odd to say but sometimes I feel like they pick the actors based on a check box of mandatory features. Much like Kpop groups. So I just feel so happy to have a different gorgeous/handsome/whatever to look at.

The music is fun and while I don't need to have the OST, if I hear it you bet I'll sing a long with it. I did like the customized ring tones. They added such character to the characters!

Would I rewatch it. Well I would for Su Ho scenes.

To be honest this drama borders on a 5 rating from me. However, certain aspects elevate past it's failing episodes. Such as the Su Ho treating Bo Nui so well. It was refreshing. Not only that but he thinks she's beautiful and he doesn't hold back once he starts realizing he's falling for her. It's also a great tale of people who don't know much about love finding it and exploring it together. In all the insanity I think that's what was captured the best.

Overall Lucky Romance is a very feel good drama. The last episodes sadly disappointed, but the rest of the drama truly entertained. This seemed like a very hit or miss with viewers, but if you're like me and give it a chance it may grow on you. There's plenty of plot holes, especially with those horrible later episodes, but with a synopsis like that you kind of expect that going in. This drama is a great filler drama to have fun with while waiting for other dramas. Or simply a pallet cleanser. It's easy and unique! Who doesn't enjoy a good campy romance? This is an adorable drama and you'll be making odd cute noises along with the characters. Be prepared to feel good.

I was really excited about this drama when I saw the trailer come out (probably a year or two ago). Lord knows when I anticipate a drama, I rewatch the trailer a million times until I've probably memorized the lines LOL. I love Ruby Lin, her acting is always on point and the dramas she produces are always superb! I have to say, though, that this drama was a bit disappointing and read more got boring and draggy in the middle.

Story -- The drama started out very interesting and probably the first 10 episodes I was sucked right in. It did start to get slow though, and at certain points I didn't even feel like watching anymore, but I pushed through! Later on it did get a lot better and I was super interested again, so you just have to be patient. Overall, the plot is a bit like the typical periodical/historical Chinese dramas--there's always the kind-hearted female lead and the anti who wants to ruin everything and get revenge.

Acting/Cast -- I never doubt Ruby Lin's choice when she picks her own actors/actresses for the dramas. They always do a great job and bring the characters to life. Yuan Hong was a great choice for the main lead; I haven't really seen his previous works but this one was enough for me to recognize his great acting skills. Honestly, the only one I have to nitpick about is her eldest brother. His acting was really off-putting, like... I couldn't tell if his acting was just that bad or if his character was just so shitty?? (excuse my language).

Music -- there weren't really any OSTs in this one, I was surprised. There was really only the opening theme and ending theme, which were also used as insert songs. There were also variations of the song sang by other singers, but I prefer the original singers.

TLDR; This is a good watch overall, but the middle gets a bit slow and boring, just a warning! The acting is great, don't worry about it. Basically the drama juts gets draggy in the middle and is a bit lengthy but it starts and ends great (which is a bonus because who likes to have terrible endings!!).

(WARNING: Long review)
I have to say that I *am* biased towards this drama because it was my very first drama ever. I think I'm judging more from an old point of view (since I watched this when it came out in 2006) rather than a modern POV. This was another one of the few dramas that made me so excited and I couldn't wait for the next disc! Yes, disc, because read more I watched it while it was coming out and back then we used to watch on DVD LOL.

STORY -- I really liked the plot because it was different from typical romance dramas. I feel like back then there were more creative stories for TW dramas, but now 80% of them all follow the typical love story. This is a more comical version, but I don't remember what the jdrama version was like so I can't say much for a comparison. The pace is pretty good and the story moves on to a new topic every few episodes. I love the character development for everyone and all of the supporting roles are very fun to watch! There's a bit story for the second leads, too, so it's not just focused on the main two.

ACTING -- I know a lot of people either love or hate Ella because her personality is so wild/exaggerated, but I personally thought she was perfect for this role. I can't imagine anyone else who would play it any better. Her exaggeration and super extroverted personality was obviously incorporated into the role, which is one of the reasons you'll either love or hate her acting. I found it very fun, honestly, because not many dramas have such a crazy character haha. Now, Wu Zun ahh my bias (fangirls). His acting might have been a little awkward at some parts but it's no biggie. For most of these actors, this drama was one of the first or earlier works so their acting may not be A+; cut them some slack :)

MUSIC -- Okay I really loved their songs, like all of them. Quite rare for me to like all of the OSTs in a drama, but I really did like them! I tend to prefer sad OSTs but all of these are upbeat and happy, and I seriously just replay them on loop. Very nostalgic!! This drama led me to fall in love with Fahrenheit and S.H.E., hardcore!

Anyways, I think if you were to watch this back then when dramas weren't as popular, this would have been the bomb (which is why I love it so much). But if you watch it now after seeing so many creative and interesting plots, this may not get as high ratings. So advice to someone who plans to give this a try: please be open-minded and remember that this was 10 years ago when dramas were just starting to become a popular thing. This is a great drama to rewatch in the summer because it's so fun and refreshing!

8/10 for pure enjoyment. I actually marathoned this one. All 40 episodes!

So much goes on in this drama I can't even start. Please read the summary and know that it really doesn't convey how addicting and well done this drama is. Sure It's you're average family drama but only in that it follows all the basic "guidelines" we all get familiar with after awhile so it doesn't count.

This one is read more worth the watch. Really. Maybe it did go a little nuts toward the end but I still liked it. All the feels and a happy ending! Give it a try. I past it over so many times because of the summary. You can find it on Kissasian.com. The subs get all Google translate for a few episodes but then it goes back to normal.

This drama was a breath of fresh air. After watching some seriously depressing, but still seriously great, korean historical dramas I wanted a light-hearted tale of a sweet love to lift my spirits. This drama was it. Its not the type of light-hearted drama that gets super boring, rather its the type that leaves you wanting for more after every 45 minute episode. It has two of my favorite actors in it read more which is a big bonus. The actors are Mao Xiaotong who plays Er Xi and Zheng Shuang who plays Bei Weiwei (if your wondering) The plot is fun and interesting while the twists and turns of the drama make you anxious and anticipating.

This drama went above my expectations. When I first clicked on it I was expecting a boring, typical sci-fi drama with boring and average romance. But after the first 2 episodes I was hooked. It was a great main story plot with other plots including one of murder. It was very interesting and the ending left me with a bitter-sweet feeling.

One of the best and most classic Chinese dramas of all time. I finished all 50 episodes in 4 days. Yes, I spent about 12 hours a day watching this non-stop. This series has a perfect blend of adventure, action and romance. It had huge themes such as sacrifice, regret and love. The ending got so intense that I was sent on an emotion roller-coaster. This drama literally messed with my emotions. read more The cast was perfect especially Big Sister Sha (Ma Ke) and the female Superior Immortal. In conclusion I say that this is definitely a great drama to binge watch and cry your heart out to.

I fully enjoyed this even if it really isn't my type of story. I started watching this because of the queer baiting I saw floating around on Tumblr. It caught my attention and I knew I had to check it out. There is however no LGBT story to this, the girls just have a really close and lovely friendship, joking around about lesbians.

The romance is a teacher/student, if you're into that read more kind of thing, and there isn't much romantic angst. Since it's a medical there are cases of the week that are interesting. Good side characters and side plots. The actors were... You guessed it... good. The main story was annoying. A childish revenge. A grown woman who should know how things are dealt with. High production quality. Nothing "new" nothing special. A "good" borderline "ok" drama, worth watching if you like medicals and non stressful romances without angst.

Aaaah, this made film history.... (And the book is great, too, btw.) And for that reason alone it should be watched, just like Star Wars or Citizen Kane or classics alike.

I am old enough that I had the joy to watch this movie shortly after its release, so I didn't have to compare it to nowaday standards. Back then, it was top nodge and of course, the story and setting were read more something totally new to me as a Westerner.

You gotta be warned, if you didn't know this beforehand, but this is not a happy story. Set in a futuristic alternative Japan, each year a class is selected to be sent on an island where the pupils have to battle each other until only one stays alive. Of course, this is a rather radical setting, and one has just to accept it, because the interesting thing is what happens psychologically later. As the fighting continues, many emotional developments occur, as is epected when humans are pushed to their limits. And as a viewer one keeps asking oneself "What would I have done?" It is not a flamboyant fantasy story like Hunger Games (which I always saw as rip-off of this idea here), it is not Hollywood, it is a stab in your heart and your brain, and either are you a viewer who enjoys this ... or not.

Other than other reviewers, I give this a very high rewatch value (I have seen it about 6 times myself), because each time you get the occasion to focuse more on the psychological aspects rather than the slaughter itself. It's just one of those movies, which can offer deep insight if you give it some time.

To those who liked it a lot, I recommend the book, it gives a deeper inside into the persons' feelings and thoughts and enriches the experience by this.

This is not really a drama in the sense we understand drama to be. This is a historical series which lacks all "drama". You have to realize this before you start!

The whole series is focused on the REAL historical and political story of more than a decade - the Meji revolution and restoration. You HAVE to be interested in history, otherwise you will not enjoy this.
There is no romance or read more drama or villains in the sense we drama-lovers are used to. You will get no romantic scenes or unrealistic depictions of anything. Even when the heroine marries, you will not see her kiss or ever know whether they "consumed" the marriage or whatever.

You can call this a very dry story, because it lacks the "extra fantastic spice", but because of this, it is very pure, too. The story blossoms like a flower and you get attached to its characters very slowly, but on a deep level, it's like you share their experiences with them, because you take part in so much and for such a long time.

I love history and although I knew already some background facts about the end of the Bakumatsu period, I have never seen anything where the historical and political development of the 1860s is presented in such a detailed way. I learned so much about the clan wars of those times. You can watch and at the same time google the characters (the names are displayed) - they're are real. Also, at the end of every episode there are a few minutes of documentation about historical sites that are connected to these events! What a bonus! The documentary character is emphasized by the voice of a woman, who in each episode will resume some events or political settings, thus giving us a better overview.

It is quite outstanding to see the plot from Aizu's perspective (because Yae is Aizu), because they were the ones protecting the Shogunate in the end. (For those who don't know how history went, I don't want to spoil what's going to happen, so I won't say more on the content). As many others I had the opinion that they were just conservative and against change, but this drama showed me that in fact, they were victims to overall circumstances, too.

The directing and scenery are top-nodge, it is as realistic as it can get. Like a veeery long historical movie. I am happy with the actors, with the exception of (sadly) the main actress! I find her acting too obvious and she depicts Yae in a naive, plain way that I don't like or see fitting. In the opening of each episode (which is by the way maybe the most beautiful I have ever seen, beating even that of Nirvana on Fire), Yae is clearly stated as the heroine in such an dramatic and elegant way, that it just doesn't fit her display in the episodes itself. But oh well, that's a comparatively minor letdown.

So, for you out there, who love history and are interested in the end of the Samurai-period, this is maybe the rarest drama-jewel out there. Let me know what you think.

This was apparently a sleeper drama in 2015, and since then has gained quite a bit of attention. Unique dramas are something I love to find in Dramaland. Especially as there's an overabundance where the stories tend to follow step by step tropes and concepts. So the idea of a anthrophobia female lead with blushing issues blew my mind. The whole concept behind the drama really interested me and especially since the read more writer also wrote Coffee Prince.

Honestly it was an awkward start. It took a while for the drama to find it's footing, and the director felt like a newbie at first. Once it found its way I was captivated. All of the characters were wonderful and everything felt so heartfelt. I was moved again and again. There's skinship totally shocked me! But I LOVED it and it was done so well. Enough so that it felt very real. You could see and feel the emotions of the characters as they forged a bond of trust in that moment. Even better is that even though they slept together it wasn't a guarantee that they would be a couple. They didn't love each other yet and I enjoyed seeing their emotions grow and develop. Though it did grate on my nerves when the main love interest would call her ugly. Even in the end.

Heart to Heart was on it's way to being one of my top favorite dramas. Until the last 5 or 6 episodes. In which a typical drama plot came in to affect. In which the leads actually new each other from the past and of course there was this whole horrible mystery. It killed this drama. What I don't understand is why writers or the networks believe that they have to add drama plot tropes in such as corporate espionage or take overs, kidnappings, amnesia, and so on. We're here for the characters and unless that story is written in well to the overall plot it only ruins the drama. I really had to force myself to watch this and mainly so I could see how my beloved characters would end up. Though to be honest I ended up skipping a lot due to extreme boredom. This is a drama where I ended up sticking through to see how the side characters ended up more then the main couple.

I also found how some of the mental illnesses where handled to be incorrect at times and a very shallow reflection of serious issues. Don't get me wrong the hilarity of the two suicides at the beginning did have it's own points and merits. A different take on many very serious issues. At times I could applaud Heart to Heart for adding that comedic edge to the issues. At other times I felt like the writer just didn't quite understand.

The actors were great! Choi Kang Hee is brilliant as Hong Do and I really look forward to seeing her in future dramas. The depth of feeling and nuances she brought to Hong Do were both refreshing and precocious. I hope to find more female leads that are this well developed. Chun Jung Myung and I have a somewhat sordid past. I watched him in Cinderella's Sister and I feel like were just destined to part on bad terms. He's a fun actor! I just wish I could see him in a drama I love. His character isn't exactly the best guy, in fact he's kind of scum. But he owns it and like the lead we end up falling in love with him.

Actor Lee Jae Yoon was a surprise find! I've already become quite obsessed with him and hope in the future he'll land that lead role he deserves. His character Doo Soo is definitely the right guy at first. Until you realize that he over thinks things until someone else wants them. (Yes, I am referring to Hong Do.) I enjoyed that he seemed like the perfect white knight, but as we get to know him we see that in his own way he is just as bad as Yi Seok. So it's up for debate who is the better man.

That's where the charm is. Despite the over the top nature and seeming unrealisticness of the drama. The characters are very human and flawed. Giving the drama a more down to earth quality. I love flawed characters because as humans that's what we are. There aren't perfect guys and flawless ladies.

The music is brilliant! I love, love, love the OST. Certain songs were fun and others totally moving. The music was so unique and fit the drama well.

I really loved the fashion of this drama as it emphasizes Hong Do's illness. Using clothing and items to hide behind. Her style doesn't change that much, but I loved the use of clothing to emphasize how she hid from the world. I also thought Yi Seok's suits where daaaaaang smexy.

Would I rewatch it again? Huh. I'd watch key moments, but considering the slightly rough start the and inevitable boredom of the last 5 to 6 episodes it's not likely.

Overall I think Heart to Heart is a very charming drama. I feel greatly disappointed that the director and writer chose to botch the final episodes. Because Heart to Heart is a very character driven series and I thought many ideas and concepts where lost to simply fulfill a required trope check off list. I wish more writers would be brave enough to keep their original ideas going. I know a lot of it probably has to do with the networks. However, the majority of this drama was moving and beautiful. The take the writer tried to convey on mental illness and the power to heal others was refreshing. Not to mention how well developed the characters are and that none of them were stereotypes, they were outside the box. Which I am very grateful for. They've made a lasting impression.

Ahhh, a movie made before I was born, I feel young. Hong Kong movies hold a special little place in my heart, I blame Jackie Chan for introducing me to the quirky world of Hong Kong Film. God of Cookery delivered pretty much what I expected to find. Granted that this is a film which was made much before my time so I have no way of knowing whether this is a read more well made film for the time or not, however compared to other Hong Kong films I've seen from this generation, it's a pretty darn good movie.
The film started off well, we have the arrogant chef who has lost his way in the world of cookery and we also have the traitor who sells out the so-called 'God of Cookery' and takes his place. Fairly routine start to a movie good guys, bad guys, the rebel who befriends the hero , pretty average storyline. It progresses well, until the last... half an hour or so. Now I'm not saying it was a bad ending... it was just weird. Like, this film starts so believable and then they just pull that out of the hat. I won't lie that I didn't per myself laughing, but it was weird. If you watch this film, be aware it follows all the predictable laws of film making, but it does it in its own special little way.
There are quite a few innuendos within this film, but that's something that I know will happen in a Hong Kong Film. I don't think I've seen one of this films without at least two sexual innuendos. It's beautiful. Man I love directors with a sense of humour, it brightens up my day.
If you want to watch this because you're a fan of food... the food porn level is at about 3/5. There is lots of food, obviously it a a film about a chef, but there are few scenes where you sit in awe with drool seeping from the side of your mouth. A majority of the food scenes are to add comedic value. The 'ping-pong ball' meat ball.. things... there is basically no "ERHMAHGAWDSHOVEITINMYMOUTH" moments. It's fairly average looking food. There are the odd nice food making scenes, but very few. In addition the fancy chef skills are obviously CGI and a lot of flailing. Pretty sure the actors had never cooked before... or they were shown an anime video and told to pretend they could do that. But again, this awful cooking acting stuff didn't downgrade the film at all. It just added a segment of vague amusement for the enjoyment of the viewer.
To me, based on previous films I've seen, this is a pretty basic Hong Kong movie. The actors are funny, the director has a sense of humour and the actual filming seems like it's done by a group of well versed students with a decent budget. However that last one is probably more to do with the era it was filmed in. I quite enjoyed watching this movie, and although it's probably not one is recommend to my friends (due to strange ending), I would recommend it to anyone who wants to have a bit of a giggle and be entertained for a couple of hours. The film crew obviously had a lot of fun during this movie, and it is expressed deeply though the acting, that is something which really completed God of Cookery for me. By seeing a group of actors enjoy acting out this film, I myself found myself enjoying it. It's worth the watch if you have time, so have fun and enjoy it.

Why I watched it: Seo In Guk. That’s pretty much all I needed.

Was it worth it: Probably?

What I liked the most: The cons. It’s fun to see the guys you’re rooting for get the upper hand.

What I disliked the most: There was a lot of content overlap and it got a bit muddled towards the end.

Moment Meter: 2/10 – Not too many romantic moments, but there were a read more few feel good “gotcha” moments in there.

Other thoughts: There are a lot of characters, so you have to pay attention, especially to names. The constant cons can also break your brain if you’re not paying attention. After a while you just start second guessing everything. There were some cute parts. It had a bit of an Ocean’s 11 feel to it at the beginning. The ending was pretty solid, but again, you have to pay attention. I would have liked to see more between Yang Jeong Do and Cheon Seong Hee, but then again I’m a sucker for romance. Rewatchable only if you were lost the first time you saw it.

Conclusion: A solid drama. It could have been cooler given the subject matter, but not bad all together.
