Having been a fan of Aragaki Yui for ages I was really looking forward to this drama when i heard about it
and im happy to say that i was not disappointed.

The main storyline revolves around the solving of cases of most detective and mystery drama's do. The
individual cases were well thought out and though each case may appear simple they are anything but.
The cases and how they are read more solved by the cast are well explained and illustrated via the use of diagrams
that are both flashy and easy to understand a fact that i applaud. The main story is very light, funny and pretty relaxing and it was fun to see the relationship between the two main characters develop as the show went on.

In terms of characters and casting Yui Aragaki and Masaki Okada did a fantastic job of portraying their respective characters. As a long term fan of Yui i have to say that she gave a flawless performance portraying Kyoko. Masaki Okada is one actor that im familiar with as he had lead role in Legal high 1 and 2 where he acted alongside Yui and i have to say his performance here was really good.
Apart from the main cast the support cast i felt also did a pretty good job especially the owner of the cafe and the waitress that knows martial arts.

Overall this show has a great story that is both fun and light and this is backed by the excellent performance by the cast. The music for this show is also pretty well done.

Im not normally one to rewatch drama's but this will probably one that i will watch again at some point.

I liked story, but acting in some scenes was awkward or funny, especially a scene, where Charlie cried on episode 2. Music was not my type :( , so thats why i gave such as small rate *evil smile* but no matter how acting was awkward in some scenes or music, i still love this drama, especially Charlie and Xiao Feng and many many characters. So, i give 10/10.

Actually I don't know why this drama low rated! , maybe it isn't master peace but its not that bad too .
.
I watch it because of curiosity , I wanted to know how it could be rated 6.9 .. specially I like Rain.

I admit it’s full of Clichés , but most of the K dramas based on clichés .. I can say that is a sweet clichés .

may read more be the problem was lack of Chemistry between Rain and Krystal but I really enjoyed the world of entertainment , the world of making music .

Rain : in his best performance , sexy , handsome , attractive .. (I really liked the way he hug her) .

L: (Shi Woo ) was really good and attractive .

Krystal : she did her best but I think she wasn’t the best choice for the roll . Zero Chemistry and she wasn't that lovely .

This drama simply reminded me of Mairunovich Manga. The main guy character becomes the main girl's mentor and helps her to woo the guy she likes back in her high school days. She goes through various training and harsh words from her mentor day after day. After finishing one episode of the drama, I keep wondering what would happen next and kept watching and lost track of time. It was exciting how read more the girl progress in her love affairs and the quarrels she had with the mentor.

All the characters were so good at acting and my most favorite after the two mains was the mother of the girl main character. She wasn't a mother who was too pushy to her daughter into getting married and had her own sense of humor.

Tbh, I was shock to see the girl main character and didn't even realize that she was the main till I realized her personality is exactly what was written on the plot summaries...."NOOOOOO!!!!......." was my reaction at the beginning of the drama probably cos my expectation of the female main was high. Her personality is sort of conceited unlike the girl in Mairunovich and looked pretty older than I thought she would be. However, my opinion changed after I kept watching the drama. Her personality seemed kind of cute and she looked more prettier.

The reason why I gave this drama overall 5.5 because I wouldn't really re-watch this all over again. It was a fun story and I would recommend people to watch this who loves romcom that has a lot of bickering between the two main characters, but it's not to the extent of Secret Garden (Korean drama I really liked so much) that I would re-watch it 3 times. Besides that everything was good to me (y)

First off I would like to say that I did not rate it six stars because of the age gap or ending. The age gap was handled in a way that I didn't cringe (also I'm sorry but YSY doesn't look 30 more like young 20s) and the ending was realistic. It said it would be sad from the start...how would you expect anything else?

Why I rated it six stars:

the read more characters were so STUPID. Yeon hee was a weepy mess. She'd literally mope about the kingdom thinking "wow, I should fix this curse...but I don't know how" this is the same kingdom...that is filled with plagued people, how do you NOT know how. Fix up a potion, it's not rocket science. And then the characters just seemed so unconcerned with the whole curse thing. They were all like "we could be fixing up potions...but let's stare lovingly into eachothers eyes instead" *vomit* And then the whole red robes. what the heck???? I can imagine the writers sitting down saying "well, we need someone to be red robes. Let's totally throw them off! Like really throw them off, and pick someone that just gives innocent vibes...even after the viewers know that he/she is a ruthless cutthroat..." I just couldn't believe that red robes...was red robes...like who thought of that??? And then I thought maybe we'd get some explanation on WHY red robes is evil...because they sure as heck don't appear evil, but nope, we're just given the fact and have to accept it. I almost felt bad for hongjoo. Seriously. She was surrounded by a bunch of idiots. How many times did she have to tell the main cast that if they try to kill her the kingdom will be cursed...seriously this would happen like at least once an episode...I basically felt like the characters were ruled by their emotions instead of mastering them. That they had no logic and spent the majority of the drama (or at least the last half) wallowing away in despair without doing anything to overcome their problems. While it started out good it quickly went down hill as the characters made the same mistakes over and over and over again. This is a real shame because I was super excited to see this since YSY is one of my fave actors.

GREAT drama.
I really enjoyed watching this one.
This shows what the world is truly like, how cruel life can be.
A slice of life drama with very realistic scenarios and acting.
I liked all actors especially the villains, they did a tremendous job.
The OST by Ali is very touching and suits the drama perfectly.
Thanks to all who worked on this drama. It was definitely worth my time ^^

Daebak if only there was 15 points i woulda put extra . I havent laughed this much since japanese comedies. The whole freaking cast was amazing seriously. These are the ones who stood out. This show needs an award
Seo in guk - just become my top 5 actors and im gonna watch everything hes in. He is very real and honest in his acting and emotions the best part was him read more cursing out continously i dont think he practiced it just flowed naturally. Hes not drop dead when u look at him but when u watch him act u fall in love, he did that to me in reply 97 series. .
Jung soo young - she was just pitiful and nerdy and aloof and hilarious and amazing and alot of stuff. Her acting had me laughing alot esp when the romance started in ep 9. I was balling. Shes like a twig zombie swaying with her shoulders down all the time but still amazing she did that character justice
Jin woo - aside from being the bad guy hes super hot u forget hes bad. Those eyes
Section chief - his voice is everything and hes hilarious always mad and wants to kill min seok but then he falls for his tricks and he gets frustrated. He has a signature voice
Harabuji- u cant not love this guy. Everyone loves him. So freaking funny and has dementia. Every scene hes in u will burst out laughing. I will miss him hope hes the same in other shows
MUST WATCH THIS SHOW VERY VERY ENTERTAINING

Kind of the same as other romance movies now. Heroine Disqualified just has some more funnier moments. Hatori mostly carries the movie. There are little bit of parts that are different then normal romacne movies. The acting in here is pretty good. Its really a fun movie. The plot is kind of weak just regular plots. I really liked the music at the end of the movie. Kiritani Mirei played the best read more character in this movie which makes it watchable to me.

This drama could be split into four cases: Gyeonggi Nambu murders, 1995 Larceny case, 1997 Hongwong-dong murders and the final, most important case - Injoo (poor Sun Woo - my heart broke for him.)

It actually kickstarts with the kidnapping of a young girl, and the thriller starts.

In the first two cases, they did a slow reveal of who the killer was, which was pointless in my POV, because I figured read more out who was the killer and burglar respectively, in like, 2 seconds. In the first one, the second the bus driver said, "No-one got on at that stop" it was bloody obvious who it could be (hint: it's not the bus driver.) In the second one, there was no witnesses except the rich boy...and lo be'hold - it doesn't take a genius to figure out who it could be. I felt like my intelligence was being mildly insulted, but the walkie-talkie side-drama, kept my score around 7/10. You know - that awesome thing that can communicate with Lee Jae Han in the past :)

In the last two cases, they revealed who the culprits were straightaway, so I just settled in to watching the net closing in on them! It was actually kinda fun. My fav bits were the flashbacks on how the crimes were committed, and the human emotion it wrought. We really were spoiled! Also any scene with Lee Jae Han in it. The time looping was very impressive.

Questions that I still want to know the answers too:

1) Park Hae Young's phone kept ringing at 11:22, just before the 11:23 transmissions, 2 or 3 times. Who was it? Why was it never mentioned again? (That bugged me the most, surprisingly)

2) Does this have a second season? :)

Extra mention to Cha Soo Hyun, she was brilliantly acted by Kim Hye Soo. That woman!

Also strangely - my most favourite character besides, LJH, was Ahn Chi Soo. He wasn't quite a good guy, nor was he a full out blown bad guy (I love how he supported the Cold case team sometimes, at odds with his jerkface boss, Kim Bum Joo) and the reveal with his character in ep 11 (was it 11?) was my fav cliffhanger of the show. I like people who straddle both light and dark, in the murky grey area.

The soundtrack was great. Really elevated the show throughout. I didn't even realise the last episode was 1 hour and 1/2, I was so amazed that a show, could still remain exciting to the end, raising questions, instead of solving them! Kudos Signal team. You outdid yourselves!

What a great show! I was hugely disappointed after watching "Hyde, Jekyll, Me" a few months ago, so I was a little wary of watching this, which also uses the DID motif. Boy, was I wrong to be worried about this show. It's of such high quality and an absolute blast to watch.

Story:

A little ridiculous, yes, and the show's portrayal of DID is a little off, but for the purpose read more of the TV show's plot, it was just fine. Do Hyun and Ri Jin's past is intriguing and filled with interesting twists as they slowly begin to recall their memories of the past. All of the personalities have interesting origins, and how they fit into Do Hyun's past is very interesting and fun to put together. It's never overly convoluted, and I was always excited to see what would happen next. It's creative and an absolute joy to watch unfold. The story can be very deep and emotional one moment, but hilarious the next (like when Se Gi makes a wheel for Ri Jin to spin to see which personality she should save). I do have to say, the last two episodes, while action packed and very interesting, leave a little bit to be desired in terms of Do Hyun's final treatment.

Acting/Cast:

This show's casting was downright amazing. I'm actually glad that other actors turned down the role of Do Hyun, because Ji Sung ended up playing the character's 7 personalities brilliantly. He gave a no holds barred performance, making Se Gi dangerous yet appealing, Do Hyun charming and kind, and Yo Na just a little bit terrifying, not to mention the other four, Perry, Na Na, Yo Seob, and Mr. X. Also, I don't think I've fallen for a character as hard as I did Do Hyun. Hwang Jung Eum is an actress whose work I will definitely seek out now that I've seen her in "KMHM". She gave a very strong performance and added her own flare to an already quality character. Park Seo Joon is another actor I'd never seen before, so I'm glad this was my introduction to him. His portrayal of a brother with conflicting feelings about his sister's past and what sort of love he holds for her was great. The two of them seemed like real siblings.

Music:

The main theme, "Hallucination", is wonderful, and though it was used a lot, it never became boring. Park Seo Joon and Ji Sung's songs were very emotional, and they meant so much more when something important was happening on screen, and you hear the voice of one of the characters singing about their pain and fear. The music always fits the mood. It was very enjoyable, and I actually downloaded the OST because I liked it so much.

Rewatch Value:

After seeing it once and knowing the whole story, I would love to see it again just so I can further delve into each personality and to see exactly why they are who they are. Ri On is also a really interesting character, and his feelings towards his sister, Ri Jin, are much more complicated than they seem at first, and the things that he felt for her when they were teenagers, and then as they grew up into adults are very deep, and they definitely deserve another look through, just so you can better understand his unique love for her.

This show blew me away. I had very few gripes with it and it was a ton of fun to watch. More than anything else, watch it for Ji Sung's amazing performance as Do Hyun and the other personalities. He's captivating, and brings so much life into each personality, and so easily fools the viewer into thinking that they are actual, separate people, and not just facets of one person. Watch it for Do Hyun and Ri Jin's beautiful relationship, which isn't fueled by abuse, or anger, or misunderstandings like so many other K-drama relationships are. Watch it for Ri On and Ri Jin's special relationship, which is so wholesome and heartwarming. Just... watch this show.

It has a promising story and the two leading female actresses, So Yi Hyun and Kim Yun Seo, act really well. I think "Cha Seo Rin" is nicely developed compared to the other main characters but there are just some aspects of this drama that made me drop it.

I wasn't a big fan of the main protagonist and antagonist portrayed as binary opposites, Ji Yoo embodying purity and kindness and "Cha read more Seo Rin" being jealous and vengeful. It makes sense given that the main theme is revenge but I find it unappealing when characters are given a set of characteristics that make it too easy to pick a side.

Oh Min Suk, the actor does a good job, but the character himself annoyed me most of the time. I also feel that Park Bok Ja, the maid, overdoes her part and Ji Yoo is two-dimensional.

Up until I gave up, there was a good amount of slapping scenes. Funny to watch (I'm being sarcastic) but I think the recipients move their heads to early?

The soundtracks are alright but not my cup of tea.

I have seen drama's up to a 100 episodes (some way more) and finished them, so I guess I just lost genuine interest in this one. It's predictable and reminds me of another drama, Two Mothers. My mom is strict and still wants to finish it so I'll just have her update me on how the plot evolves.
