Such a good drama. I cried so much watching this. Everything about this drama was sooo good: the acting, the music, the story, and even the ending was good.

All the characters in the drama are super dramatic, emotional, clingy, and extremely annoying. The story is good, but the characters and acting aren't good at all.

Indeed it is a comedy drama. I enjoyed a lot. I thought Lee Ji-Hoon was the main character. But it turned out to be Yoo Hyun-Jae (I wonder if his character is same in real. All the dramas which I have watched has almost the same character, very jolly, talkative, funny and cute. I enjoy watching his drama). And that bakery Ajumma (she is a beauty),Choi Woo-Seung ,Lee Gwang-Jae,MC Drill;Lee Soon-Ta,Park Young-Jae(that read more guy who looks cute when he is angry);Cathy,MJ,Mal-Sook(too cute),Cathy-This people are dapong without them the drama would have been boring. I just wish the last ep. could have done better. Overall, Dapong dapong dapond dapong,dapong!!! you should watch.

Since there are already a lot of good, positive reviews for this drama, I'll keep mine brief and focus on what I disliked.
I really, really loved the first 2/3rds of the drama. However, the drama loses interest for me after the romantic tension is gone and all the problems are solved (I seriously don't count his grandma's resistance a real problem, since we have seen how nice she is to Eun read more Chan in previous episodes and know there is a strong likelihood she will come around). Sure, there are some plot points to complete and tie up during the remaining episodes, but none of them come close to being as engaging as watching Han Kyul's emotional turmoil over liking Eun Chan. I also did not care too much about the three side couples in the drama--even Yoo Joo's and Han Seong's relationship became dull for me around episode 11.
Apart from all that, yes, the drama is great and deserves all the hype it gets.

It's a fun drama with some untypical elements in the story, but if you don't appreciate the over-the-top humor, it's nothing special. I felt that it dragged at times. The story dealt with corruption, connections and covering up big schemes. Those themes are nothing new. For example Pinocchio, Healer or Uncontrollably Fond dealt with similar issues. However, there are enough comedic elements in Chief Kim to make the story way more balanced. read more I also appreciated the variety of female characters, none of which try to fight over a cute guy. That's a huge plus of the show. There are many references to other dramas in Chief Kim and those are honestly the funniest scenes in the show.

The main conflict between Kim Seon Ryong and Seo Yool reminded me of Falling for Innocence. It has a similar vibe. There is virtually zero romance in this show which was refreshing, but was also a missed opportunity. I thought that the initial scenes between Seo Yool and Ha Kyung were promising and I was waiting for more scenes between the two of them. I am not saying there had to be any serious romance, but this showed did a good job showing the progression of many cool relationships except for this one. I think the writers dropped the ball with those two characters.

Most of the actors did a good job in this. Personally, I am not a fan of Namgoong Min's acting, though. I didn't like his style of acting in Beautiful Gong Shim and I didn't quite like it here. I was totally flabbergasted about Ha Dong's performance after seeing him in Suspicious Partner. What a versatile actor!

"Stranger" was pretty much perfect. It might ruin other crime dramas for me in the future because it was so good. I'm giving it a 10 which I hardly ever do. Lots of crime dramas rely on shock, sordid details or graphic violence to thrill and create interest. Stranger tells a story about complicated characters with passions, motives, and morals that collide, corrupt, and too rarely bolster and strengthen each another. Though read more this is a crime investigation story and definitely contains some gruesome scenes, most of the thrills come from the characters playing off each other.

The script is so tightly written. The story is a cleverly and methodically laid out multi-layered labyrinth with compelling and intelligent characters at each turn. There are no throw away characters who behave stupidly, frustrating plot details, cutesy comic relief or romance just for the sake of adding romance. Every line could have a potential effect on the outcome. If you let your mind drift for a moment you might just miss out on some new clue or development. While watching, I often had the unsettling feeling that everyone is not who they seem and everyone is up to no good. It's just that I'm not sure what they are up to yet. Then a moment later I would often come to the exact opposite conclusion and think maybe this character is exactly who he appears to be after all. It had me on the edge of my seat and guessing up through the last episode. It is really impressively done.

"Stranger" is well-acted all around. The 2 main leads do such a great job. Jo Seung Wo is excellent as Prosecutor Hwang. In playing a cold, emotionless, and calculating character with limited facial expressions, he somehow manages to shine with goodness and integrity, gain our sympathy and win our hearts. Bae Doo Na is excellent as Lieutenant Han who may be the more stereotypical good cop character, but she brings her character to life with warmth, passion and toughness. I also particularly enjoyed Lee Joon Hyuk as Seo Dong Jae. He portrays his smarmy despicable character with a lot of emotional range. He's the guy you love to hate and sometimes feel sorry for. All the characters have great chemistry together - both the heroes and villains - though you never really know for sure who is who until the very end when all the pieces fall together perfectly. It's a thrilling and compulsively watchable ride that builds in intensity as the story progresses. I am sorry to be done. I even re-watched the last episode immediately so I didn't have to say goodbye just yet.

This drama brings up ideas about what makes a person who they are. Does a person ever fundamentally change? What make us human? What makes us good or bad? Is it our emotions, our ideals or intentions? Our actions? Morals? A sense of justice? If you are into crime stories you have to watch this. But I also highly recommend this to people who appreciate an intelligent well told story that makes you think.

This drama contains enough action and comical situations to keep you entertained till the very end. Especially the leading actor was so good, acting perfectly his role that was eccentric and odd, even when he acted like a cat. The big twist in the end wasn't easily predicted, and that was a plus for the drama, even though it was a bit sad. The action scenes, in addition, were plenty and, along read more with the small cases, it aided to make the plot really interesting. Plus, the friendship dynamics were really good. So, 8 out of 10.

Saw it last week, went just for Song Joong Ki. Unfortunately I didn't like it much. I didn't feel much of a connection with the characters. I understand that it is based on historical events but there was too much violence and was overall incredibly depressing. Afterwards I felt utterly drained emotionally.

I haven't had as much fun watching a drama in a long time. It was a perfect mix of comedy, drama and action. Do Bong Soon is one of the best female lead characters I've seen so far in k-dramas. Park Bo Young did a fantastic job as did the rest of the cast. This show also has one of the most satisfying endings I've ever seen. Truly heart-warming and a definite read more must watch as far as I'm concerned!

Romantic movie for the lonely hearts in Taipei on Valentine's Day in this light musical novel that made history featuring a cast of pop singers, "52Hz, I Love You" proves to be a nice mess, which does a much more effective job of pleasing Than tinkering with the hearts of the spectators.
In a story traced that also curiously avoids choreographed musical numbers (K-pop vulgar), we follow the florist Xin (Zhuang Juan-ying read more of the musical group Katncandix2) and Angol-turn-chocolatier Ang (Lin Zhong-yu of the Cosmos People).
"52 Hz, I Love You" is generally a purely sweet movie but remains superficial to the end, the film is more fairy-tale than a romance affair with a lazy narrative and the development of symbolic characters .

The sunny seaside town, perched houses in the open countryside, leaf rustling and long epilogue beaches of family ties are present in "Hotori no Sakuko" which are interwoven with stories from the past, where a young woman travels with her aunt for a well-deserved rest and then back to study...
"Hotori no Sakuko" has a structure that lets the show perspire, not only for the facts but also for the simple and read more subtle dialogue, the inspiration that oscillates between Rohmer and Kore-eda; It is in the pictorial structure in which it came: Au Revoir l'Ete Koji Fukada. Great movie.

Hong Kong making prison film is something unusual, but they do.
Just like the premise I found the film somewhat sensational but high quality.
Neo Yau Hawk-sau deserves distinction for excellence in acting, for playing a very different character, a gang leader convicted and taken to a detention center. The infamous disruptive and arrogant is quickly destroyed by the sadistic guards, whose shocking brutality and humiliation led him to attempt suicide on read more his third day behind the bars.
A dark and oppressive story, animated only by the hesitant bond of the characters with other prisoners and with the presence of a solitary and sympathetic guard, Ho, with prisoners offers a nightmare account of institutional depravity, based on real events.

"The Truth Beneath" is a film that talks about violent revenge.
When a politician's daughter is losing, the scandal threatens to change his ambitions for a major election. We soon find that mother-daughter relationships are not so great when Min-jin resides in who is doing his homework.
Instead of starting an investigation, Jong-chan is more concerned about the election victory. He is left to his mother, Yeon-cheong, to look for its daughter. read more Things take a tragic turn when your daughter's body is discovered dumped in forests ...
After this point the film provides a certain interactivity, as the objective of distinguishing the truth from the lies, already in the flashbacks, we see how the relationship between Min-jin and Mi-OK was in the past and present. What was interesting was how their relationship was affected by the corrupt adult world. He also showed that for all his recent modern developments there are still many traces of the Chung-hee dictatorship in present-day Korea. For those looking for a good weekend movie, "The Truth Beneath" is a suggestion.

"Suddenly At Midnight" is featured in cinematography, although the film is rich in this subject, at the time there was superior care to leave environments as close to natural as possible, an elaborate setting with smoother camera movement and a transition of scenes soft. The story of "Suddenly At Midnight" can be said that it comes from the base of the classic suspensions, it is sustainable by a good scientific thesis, it read more has its falls in course but it keeps well on average, the cast is great, only problem is the soundtrack , Very inefficient for a film so rich in cinematic details.
