This drama was a bit uneven for me. Some of it was on par with the best k-dramas out there (The monarchy setting, the lead and secondary couplings, as well as the push-pull dynamics of the hero and villain), while some of it was truly unwatchable (the silliness of the WOC, the huge cast of random foreigners and the makjang tendencies of killing all my favorite characters)

My Rating: 8.0

In short: read more All in all, I enjoyed it. However, I would have enjoyed it much more it had been a bit shorter. At the very least, they should have removed the actual WOC competition part. Actually risking the king's life for a military competition is just dumb, and the change of setting really sucked the life out of the drama. They could also have done without the countless horrible conversation in "english".

Pros: The secondary coupling really stole the show for me in this. Jo Jong Suk and Lee Yoon Ji were fabulous. They could have been the entire drama as far as I was concerned. Lee Sung Min was also adorable as the royal hyung.

Cons: I think Ha Ji Won overacts in everything. Luckily, this character was, compared to her character in Secret Garden, an actual badass. That certainly helped, though she was still the most dull character in this. And what does that title mean? It certainly does not make sense in english...

1. STORY
School love thing, with a "Cinderella" and a gorgeous princess. And some more people around who want to have one of the two as their own lover. Romantic? Yes it is, definitely.
But there's some real thing in this unreal drama, business vs girlfriend, will one choose girlfriend instead? And if not, why does he have to choose so?
But it needs more, I don't know, but really, it needs read more more to reach "good".
2. ACTING/ CAST
Park Shin Hye, Lee Min Ho, Krystal, Kim Woo Bin... Too much for a girl like me.
3. MUSIC
Great! I love the OST
5. REWATCH VALUE
Maybe I'll rewatch it, for some romantic scenes only.
6. OVERALL (SPOILERS - SORRY FOR POSTING SPOILERS)
Why Kim Tan fell for Eun Sang that easy?
Why I feel like Young Do with Eun Sang more than Kim Tan with Eun Sang?
Why in the last episode they don't make it real but just imaginations?

1. STORY
Right at the beginning of the movie, after seeing the main lead actress we might know the ending directly, at least we might know good ending or bad ending.
But I loved watching it, like how they fell for each other, their romantic chemistry, even though the boy couldn't talk!
I cried at the ending.
2. ACTING/ CAST
Bo Young did a great job.
Joong Ki did an excellent job. read more How could you act that good Joong Ki?
The rest were pretty good too.
3. MUSIC
I loved the song which Soon Yi sang with the guitar. What a beautiful song for a beautiful movie!
4. REWATCH VALUE
I'm not sure about this cause if I rewatch it I'll have to cry again
5. OVERALL (please don't read if you haven't watch it, SPOILERS AHEAD)
Hmmm 9.5 cause I can't stand how she went away, left the boy again, alone... And how long will he have to live on? He didn't turn old or something... but I have to admit it makes the story feel much more painful.

OKAY. THIS DRAMA IS CRAZY GOOD.

The characters, the story, and the relationships were all so well thought out! I loved all of the characters, and they all have really wonderful relationships with each other- that are REAL. They fight, bicker, annoy the hell out of each other, get seriously frustrated with each other, and they realize that they all have their own flaws. And the story stays realistic, (funnily enough to read more say about a drama based on mental disorders) showing the true struggles people in relationships (wife, mother, girlfriend, brother, daughter, etc.) with people with mental disorders have to face. It's really wonderful. The cast acted out everything brilliantly- the emotions were conveyed very well and wow, some of the best acting I've ever seen.

AND THE MUSIC. *BREATHES DEEPLY* I DON'T KNOW HOW TO EXPLAIN TO Y'ALL HOW MUCH I LOVED THIS OST. LIKE... THESE SONGS. THEY'RE GREAT. THEY FIT IN SO WELL WITH THE SCENES AND I'VE DOWNLOADED A BUNCH OF THEM AND I NEVER GOT TIRED OF THEM (like I have with very many other songs in other dramas) AND WOW. A++++++++++++++++++ TO WHOEVER PICKED THESE SONGS. A FREAKING PLUS.

Anyways, I totally recommend this drama! It's probably one of my all time favorites now and I loved this drama from start to finish!

For a country still dealing with its own discrimination towards mental disorders, I thought this drama was just plain- WOW. Wonderful. Seriously, good job!!! (I'm in awe)

The thing that kept me interested and made me continue watching this really odd, weird, sometimes gross but also funny movie was Baek Sung Hyun - he was the life of this movie - him and his blind sidekick Hwang Jeong Min - they were hilarious together. I laughed a lot b/c of them - hit, bonk, duck, I got you again lol and the blind guy whenever he would laugh I'd read more laugh lol - this kind of humor is funny to me. The weird thing is I started this movie for Han Ji Hye and to be honest I didn't see the reason for her being on this movie - she has a very small role and not a very gripping one either - and Cha Seung Won - is he a vampire or something? lol, that's what I kept thinking about him throughout this movie - whenever he'd smile and show his "wolf" teeth - I'd think man he looks like a vampire O.o weird.... the only scene I really didn't like was when they went to the gisaeng house - (the gross scene - no it's not explicit or anything if your wondering - it was just something the blind guy said to one of the gisaengs that I found disgusting after I figured out what he really said - yuck).

Overall: this wasn't what I was expecting going it - the story really has no point - but if you like funny stories where people get hit a lot and you are wanting a laugh - this may be one to consider - I have a bad sense of humor - so the lead guy getting picked on by the blind guy who could fight was rather humorous to me lol ;P

Acting: great only by Baek Sung Hyun and Hwang Jeong Min - they were perfect in their acting and facial expressions ;)

I'm really not even sure where to start... Since my first foray into Korean Dramas back in April of 2014 I have see many dramas that I wholeheartedly enjoyed, a few I found lacking somewhat but still fun and entertaining, and very small few that I just didn't care for. The Three Musketeers doesn't really fall into any of these categories because it transcends them all.

I literally cannot count the amount read more of times I cheered, laughed out loud, cried-mostly tears of joy but a couple times were for sad or simply melancholy reasons, cursed at whomever I detested or disrespected, clapped my hands, or was most profoundly stunned into absolute silence with my mouth agape and my eyes blinking ever so slowly.

This drama offered me everything I could ever desire in an amazing viewing experience. Bromances, romances, betrayals, action and adventure, revenge, loyalty, self awareness, self sacrifice.... None of them done in an over tired or cliched way, as so many dramas are wont to do. Even the villains in this were not evil for the sake of being evil. They were layered and deep and had understandable reasons for their treachery. Even if their actions seemed extreme to the other characters they interacted with, or us as the viewing audience, you could see how, from their point of view, everything they did had purpose.

While watching this drama I only ever had one negative criticism in my mind about one single character. I immensely disliked the Crown Princess, and was ready to deduct half a point from my overall rating of The Three Musketeers which caused a lot of inner turmoil. However, I am so very glad I followed the guidelines for reviewing and waited as, in the end, her character fleshed out and became one that I look forward to seeing develop in the future.

That being said I can say without any doubt there was nothing I didn't love about this drama. It was a wonderful adaptation of Alexander Dumas' Novel. I was thrilled at the ending and also saddened that I had no more episodes to look forward to... at least not today. Whenever they decide to air season 2 it will be like Christmas and my Birthday wrapped into one and I will count the days until this epic adventure continues.

All For One, and One For All !!!!!

Have you ever had that moment were you stuck on a Asian drama slump? well that was me for two months until I had watched Sweet 18. What I loved about this drama was that it had every kind of genre for anyone, if you want romance, action, mystery, drama, and a good old laugh, then Sweet 18 has it all.

Story: 9.5/10

The story was an easy 9.5 out of 10 read more for me, when you are watching Sweet 18 you're so captivated by the story line that you ease by the episodes one by one. When you first start off with the show, some people are probably thinking that this is going to be a regular romantic comedy drama, but if you keep on watching there is more to the story as time goes on.

Acting/Cast: 9.5/10

The acting and cast gets another easy 9.5 out of 10 for me. I don't know what it was about this cast, but whenever everyone had interacted with each other I could feel all the emotions and the feels that were coming through my phone screen. I loved the relationship between Kwon Hyeok Jun and Yoon Jung Sook, when cute couple had interacted with each other I remember just fan girling for about five minutes before having to watch a scene. The chemistry between both of the actors felt so real, but you can't blame them because they both dated each other in real life. In all I loved the acting and the cast so much because of the actors and actresses abilities but also had their emotions had affected my emotions.

Music: 8.5/10

The music was fun to listen to and I could heard a lot of American songs that I had knew, but sometimes I felt the music would not match up with the scene that had been playing.

Rewatch value: 9.5/10

The rewatch value is am obvious high for me, it was funny, romantic, beautiful, and down right just an amazing drama, so if you have not seen this drama take my word on it is amazing and wonderful and you will not be disappointed.

Totally overrated!!!! The only thing that really l liked in this was the "ability to hear other people thoughts" and the plot of the story, but what killed it for me was acting and character matching. Watching this drama was just ok for me. By episode 4 i did not know if I should continue, but I hate to drop out from any thing to watch so before I ended this torture read more I decided to continue. It was ok, but this drama did not move me as other dramas such as YOU WHO CAME FROM THE STARS or SECRET GARDEN did ... not even close, and rating here was much higher - how can this be is my only question here...

Funny, funny and more funny! This drama should have a little higher rating in my eyes. It was well played and really nice (light) storyline made this that more enjoyable to watch. If you want to laugh, and really spend few hours of good entertainment watch this one and I'm sure you will agree with me - Personal Taste will be on your favorite list too!

No wonder this drama got so much popularity. Well deserved by the way! I loved the humor, acting and plot. The music was phenomenal and all actors played their roles very well. I really enjoyed these series. Love the chemistry between main characters, and enjoyed the ending too. I did like the fact that there was no artificial acting in the drama and all felt more natural and smooth.
I already watched read more the last two episodes twice so I might watch the whole series again in few weeks/months and I'm sure I will enjoy it once again!

I was surprised how many people said this drama was overrated. I loved the overall story and the wisdom behind it. Perhaps, many have been thinking there is no many things to laugh about, and this drama is more of a tearjerker, but to me it was one of those series I would watch again, again and again Can you believe I was crying like a baby in the last 2 episodes? read more Half a tissue box used because things were so emotional... so for those who wrote reviews early, you loss you have not continued to the end!
The acting moved me to tears in some moments. It was really romantic sci fi drama!
The end is only thing I would change slightly... but overall I think I will watch it again for sure - this time with another box of tissues by my side again!

Actually that was the worst drama i have ever seen: not because of casting which was very well or not because of the music or all the other elements (which i confess were all great), but because of the story and its ending ....i did not like the lead romance in it , i just could not understand how a happily married man can throw away all his married life and just read more because of 3-4 days and a 3 hour - trip, fall in love with a woman who just humiliated him both in 10 years ago and the time being (with such a shameful proposal!!!!!) ..... it seems that from the first Cha Seok Hoon didnot love his wife as much as he claimed and he was ready to fall in love with all the other woman he might meet in future, so Na Hong Joo was so right in not trusting him any more ...
to be honest , the Cha Seok Hoon's characteristic and behavior made me frustrated and disgusted very much , and i wonder if it is so easy for a married life to be ignored and ruined so easily????
it was so shock able and unbelievable that i couldnot believe his love towards Yoo Se Young at fist , it was really really unbelievable ... i wish with all the good memory we had with unforgettable roles of Kwon Sang Woo he did not play as Cha Seok Hoon....

though it is easy to understand Yoo Se Young's love .... she is nearly 40, and very alone and sick , so it is normal for such a woman to be envious when she sees the love between Na Hong Joo and Cha Seok Hoon, and decides to steel that love....i did not like Yoo Se Young's character as well: maybe it seems that she is a successful, beautiful and a very rich lady but all are just in appearance : with all her money and nobility, she not only stole the Na Hong Joo's husband but also her shoes !!!!

the melodram tastes so bitter that i am still sick of it ....

Such a great cast with exemplary acting with the exception of Jin Se Yeon (Jae Hee). It's a pity that what started out to be a heart wrenching story of love, and betrayal, intense international politics and more turned into a reality game show within a medical drama.

This drama could have been salvaged if the story had been condensed to say, maybe 12 episodes and been thoroughly enjoyable.

Also, some of read more the characters stupidity and what they decided was rational and logical scheming was just plain dumb. My eyes rolled so much they almost stayed up in my head permanently. That's not to say that the actors playing these dumb characters lacked in skill. They did the best they could with the script they were given. Except as I said earlier Jin Se Yeon. She could have been replaced by a robot and the robot would probably have done a better job.

Anyway, I didn't hate it as a whole, and really enjoyed many of the performances. It had enough tearful moments, intriguing moments, and laugh out loud performances that I basically gave it a C+. It passed, but just barely thanks solely to the strength of it's cast.

I love this drama so much that when I finished it for the 3rd time I started to tear up b/c it was over lol - yes I am that attached to this drama <3 I'm always laughing while watching this drama and I only ever cry once :'(

Story: Jung Sook & Hyuk Joon's grandparents had arranged for them to be married when they grew up (there is a 10yr age read more gap between them) - When they find out his grandpa & her mother plan on keeping that arrangement - you can imagine the hilarity it will bring. It's a very fun, quirky, easy, sweet, and romantic drama to watch whenever you feel like it - I fall in love with it over and over again whenever I decide to re-watch it <3

Cast: Jung Sook (Han Ji Hye) she starts off as an 18 year old immature school-girl who had fallen in love with a man she met in passing - she sees him wearing traditional clothing and carrying an old piece of literature and develops a one-sided love on him - she later becomes his wife & her character growth and maturing start to show. Hyuk Joon (Lee Dong Gun) a 28 year old Prosecutor and firstborn son of a clan (people who follow the old traditions) he decides to marry Jung Sook and we slowly start seeing him falling in love with her^^ Prosecutor Suh (Hyuk Joon's friend and co-worker) he always cracks me up with his laughter ;D He was a great supporting character ;) Ga Young (Lee Da Hae) she plays the ex who wants him back - she's hateful at first but later turns out to be rather funny with her scheming ways :p (when she is fighting with Hyuk Joon's sister) it's quite entertaining ;) Grandpa - I loved him all the way until the end... All of Jung Sook's friends are entertaining^^

Music: Some of the funniest music I've heard in drama-land and a few American songs that I love like: Kiss Me Darling By Blink and Stupid Cupid by Mandy Moore <3

Re-watch Value: 10 - I just finished it for the 3rd time and enjoyed it just as much as if I had watched it for the first time ;D
