So, this is probably one of the weakest sentai seasons out there... it had great potential at first, but it ended up as shallow as it started.
I mean, the first episode was great! Really fun and with nice effects, despite de uninteresting characters and amateurish acting (wich is okay and totally expected for a sentai at the start), but then episode 2 came, and was still nice, but nothing so new read more there, and it went on without any story and character progression up until Star Ninger is introduced.
After they all became allies, it continued the same lame pacing and no story progression as it was before, and went on until the ending, without any real game changer. Just boring to watch, as nothing happens, and characters remain the same as they were in the very first episode.

My advice: watch it if you really like ninjas and don't care about story, because some fights are cool. If not, there's better stuff around.

WARNING: Watching this drama when you are hungry and/or on a diet may be an extremely bad idea. If you do choose to do, accompany each episode with food LOL

As you can tell from the warning, this is a food-based drama so it showcases a lot of foods. Adding to the blend of genres this drama has, it's also a combination of romance, mystery, and comedy. I went into this drama read more expecting very little but ended up being a devout fan. The mystery angle of this drama was very refreshing and the overall pace of the drama was excellent. In my opinion, the romance is very practical with the setup of the characters' circumstances compared to most other K-dramas. It wasn't the main focus of the show but nevertheless the couple was cute on-screen.

I won't lie that I had some negative misconceptions about Doojoon's acting before watching the drama. I didn't expect a lot but his acting is fantastic here and he gave the role some great justice. As for Lee Soo Kyung, I was already a fan of her acting since "Call of the Country." Her acting skills never fail to impress me. The other characters were lovable as well and I'd say that everyone's action was smooth like butter, almost very natural. It shows the maturity of the actors in the show with the direction of the production.

The OST for this drama is something I'll say. A hilariously catchy song by K.Jun is the main insert. I can't believe I ended up liking this song so much. It shows how much of a dork I can be but I thoroughly enjoyed the music in this.

Overall, tasty drama with some elements of surprise. It is the kind of drama that you can slowly sink into. Definitely a recommended watch for all kinds of drama watchers.

Honestly, I don't know what should I write here... I liked the plot, the show was funny and entertaining, the characters interesting and the actors play was top-noch, really amazing. :D
But in the last episodes I just had that feel that I don't even need to watch this to know what will happen, it was immediately obvious, predictable: scenes, dialogs... So sometimes I was just fast-forwarding video.
On a final note, read more it is a good show, some people may get bored sometimes, but this that won't I can sincerly say that it won't be a lost time. So regardless of some factors that I disliked I still recommend this drama.

This was a pretty cool prologue to Lesson of the Evil. It did a great job setting up the movie. There was a slight killer mood that would foray well into the crazy good psychopathic sadistic mood in the movie. However, I wish more focus was on Hasumi than on the other creepy teacher, Tsurii. Tsurii got a lot of unnecessary screen time stalking everyone and he quickly became boring.

So if you are tired of the same old plastic perfect dramas. Tired of seeing these pretty oppas and wonder what else is there under those sexy eyes and beautiful cloths. Maybe something darker - this might be the perfect balm to satisfy that part of you mind that wonders a little more.

I've seen reviews of this movie in lists out there but avoided it. This is definitely turn out to read more be a nice surprise! Hope you will enjoy as well.

Honestly this drama seemed like it was really long but that is due to plot, but once everything got set up it smacks you in the face with all of the craziness that is about to happen. I personally loved the music choice because it is different from the norm. The story was great it had me going thought all of the emotions. The ending was great & was how i was read more hoping it would go, but it would have been nice if they would have added how the (Yoo Ji-Ho & Hong Da-Mi) relationship ended. Overall this was a great watch & i would recommend this to anyone who wants to binge watch a drama with an amazing plot that has you going though many emotions.

I gave this one a 10 for re-watch value. Simply because I actually liked it the second time around. Initially I did not like the female lead and quite a few other characters. The story line was improbable and being an older kdrama lacked the polish of recent productions.
However if you are a Kim Rae Won fan definitely worth a watch. Jang Ryeo Won fans as well.

Story - nothing special

Acting/Cast - The adults are okay, but the younger girl is pretty lacking in acting

Music - Can't remember it, can't be too good and can't be too bad then, right?

Rewatch Value - I won't rewatch it unless too freaking desperate as in having only a movie available to watch.

Overall - it made me feel basically nothing but I love the ending though :)

Aww what a movie! I don't know what I actually expected from the movie but that was not it!

The story was great! - it went exactly as in the summary, a commoner pretending to be a king for the king's sake. So many things could have happened during the period yet I totally didn't expect everything to be portrayed in such a funny way the movie did it, I was impressed! read more Funny moments, though short lived, was totally welcomed in such a stuffy palace. I love how the 'imposter' managed to make changes that were against what the real one would do, in an acceptable manner instead of in the over-the-top manner movies/dramas tend to do. Humanity was another point heavily portrayed in the movie but it was executed so nicely that me, as an audience didn't feel burdened by it. II think that's a really great job!'

The acting was brilliant! - Lee Byung Hun as The King / Imposter was fantastic in his roles. His funny moments rendered me crazy (with laughter of course) while his all-highness act was quite nice for a historical character. The rest did a nice job portraying their characters though in my opinion the rest of the characters don't need much to portray since they were just simple ones.

The music...must have been so not memorable as in not amazingly good or not amazingly bad that it's not worth remembering. Too common I guess.

It'd make a nice rewatch! - Because it was funny!

So as an overall, I would give it an eight out of ten because it made me laugh at crazy while making me think about the fine line between right and wrong and how the world perceives both of them.

This drama is 100% politics but I loved every minute of it. It's a tragic memoir of the Imjin war. I loved Ryu Seong Ryung & Lee Soon Shin - they were my favorites on this drama (and their close companions). I liked Gwanghae during the first half but by the second half I was disappointed with his actions... :/
A great drama however, if you don't mind watching one that has read more zero romance. I cried a few times while watching it and cried at the end too :'( It's more sad b/c you basically see history take place before your eyes :'(

This drama follows the writings left by Ryu Seong Ryung about the Imjin War that he titled 'Jing Bi Rok' - and we watch this unfold before our eyes, the invasion of the Japanese army, the fights in the court, the actions of King Seonjo as he tries to hold onto his power and suspects everyone. The righteous leading of Ryu Seong Ryung & his followers, the Bravery & Heart of Lee Soon Shin, the anger of Prince Gwanghae, the secret "peace talks" between Wae & Ming, the deception of the envoys, the patriotic spirits of the Righteous armies, the punishment brought out by Seonjo b/c of his fear of praise being taken away from him....the Japanese internal struggle with each other, and Toyotomi's crazy greed for power.

Ryu Seong Ryung is a character I admired throughout the entire drama & I respected anyone who followed him & believed in him. Lee Soon Shin a man who no matter who asked what of him would only do what he felt was right - he never brought harm to his men. He was upright, brave, unyielding and strong of heart - another man to be greatly admired - without him who knows what would have happened in history... I loved his friendship with Ryu Seong Ryung ^^ Both of these men are so brave - they go so well together - definitely the best of friends <3 While watching King Seonjo all I could do was shake my head at his childish, and petty ways.... and there were several other great characters throughout the drama :)

Actors I have to give a shoutout to:
~ Kim Sang Joon (Ryu Seong Ryung), Kim Suk Hoon (Lee Soon Shin), Kim Tae Woo (King Seonjo), Jung Tae Woo (Cheon Ri), Choi Chul Ho (Lee Hang Bok), Noh Young Hak (Prince Gwanghae), Lee Kwan Hoon (Shin Myeong Chul), Nam Sung Jin (Lee Deok Hyeong), & Jeon Kwang Jin (Song Hee Rib) ~

I for one would re-watch this drama if time allowed. If you like historicals - especially factual based historicals then you should enjoy this one as we watch history unfold.

The only OST I remember is just an instrumental that came on at the beginning and during the drama - nothing spectacular but it fit very well with this drama.

If you are looking for a quick, cheesy Japanese vampire drama - this isn’t it. Yes, I was also surprised by this drama. One glance at the cheesy poster made it look like the Japanese equivalent of Vampire Idol. The synopsis made it sound like a teenaged highjinks with a soft-porn touch. Sorry, that’s not what this movie is about.

Story: The vampire-love-me-or-loathe-me synopsis seems shop-worn - something straight out of a read more quickie romance novel. Despite this initial setting, the plot generally made sense and the supernatural storyline dovetails nicely into the other school story lines. It’s a puzzlement why these Japanese vampires seem to follow the traditional European vampire rules but - it doesn’t happen enough to block the flow of the story. Twists and turns within the plot are also not telegraphed ahead of time. I was about halfway through when I realized that this series was going to have a noona-romance component - you’ll have to guess how!

Acting/Cast - Another surprisingly good performance from the Japanese idol actor Nakayama Yuma as the conflicted, would-be vampire Kuromiya Ruka. He’s such a willowy guy who always looks likes he’s going to break into whatever the Japanese equivilant of aegyo is - and then he hits the ball out of the park when it comes to portraying a questioning, modern man.

Actress Kato Rosa who plays the slightly older teacher Natsukawa Makoto also does a great job. She’s innocent, caring, funny, kind - without going over board. What is also pleasant is that she is a slightly rounder shaped actress so it’s completely believable that guys from all walks of life would like her. You just want to hug her.

As this is set mainly in a school, there are a variety of of idol and teen actors involved. I don’t know how the director pulled it out of them but the ensemble cast did great jobs being classmates and romantic rivals. Sometimes, school dramas take this over the top but this group seemed like a real classroom in all its teen angst and glory. Also, Kyo Nobuo who plays the teacher heroine’s school principal and other romantic lead, Fujii Masayuki, also did a fine job showing how love can sometimes veer into madness.
Sadly, someone has inflicted a ridiculous costume cape on the man with the largest photo on the poster, Masahiko Kondo, playing the vampire Kaito. Even though he plays an essentially selfish role as a vampire who simply wants some company, his dialogue was also surprisingly deep. That damn cape, though, keeps you from taking him seriously. Thank goodness it doesn’t appear to be standard Vampire-issue wear.

Music: Really some lovely piano music that grows quite organically from the plot.

Rewatch Value: I would definitely watch this again, if only to see Kato Rosa pull off her kind, real-life performance once again. This probably won’t be my highest rated J-drama ever but it is so much more than that synopsis and poster would lead you to believe. Give it a try!

I started watching this series because of a review I read on another blog. I don't know how true this is but audiences in China were unhappy that Tiffany Tang's character chose the 2nd male lead instead of Rain. However, after watching 12 episodes, I will have to say that her character made the 'right' choice. The potential story and plot is good but Rain - seems out of place in the read more drama - he is more like a Korean pretty boy that looks good and is always put on 'display' like a model but his acting potential is never realized. It is the 2nd male lead and Tiffany Tang's character's acting chemistry that is really good to watch. The show should not have dragged on to 68 episodes but should just stay withing the 16 episodes or 24. It started becoming boring after episode 7 when everything becomes very cliche.

This was one of the dramas I accidentally stumbled upon while looking for something to watch. To be honest, I didn't know 95% of the cast in this drama but decided to give this drama a chance. Even though this drama is long, it is worth watching. This drama is about heroes such as Qin Qiong and Luo Cheng who fight for justice and to root out all corruptions in the Sui read more court. There is a lot of corrupted officials who are greedy for money or power. This is a story about brotherhood among heroes working towards a goal of ending the Sui Dynasty. The main idea is how Qin Qiong encounters lost family members or virtuous friends on a quest to fight for injustice during his journey. We have heroes that are not smart but have immense strength, we have heroes that are loyal to their lord even if the lord is corrupted and then we have heroes that have a sense of righteousness and work towards that cause. There are a lot of characters which may confuse you in the beginning, however once you start watching, you will get to know all the characters portrayed. There is some comedy involved in scenes with Cheng Yao Jin but that is because this character is not bright and also causes trouble. I really liked the chemistry between Qin Qiong and Yu Er. Yu Er is one of those type of girls that will go through thick and thin for their husband. There are a lot of things that happen and I wish some areas were more detailed with more scenes. There are also happy and sad scenes where you root for the characters. Overall, I enjoyed this drama. Try watching several episodes to see if this interests you.
