Finally finished, i started the show then put it on hold for a long time then finally decided to get it over with. I couldn't get past ep 1 and 2 for a while it was too cheesy esp the old man. he was doing too much it dint feel natural. I watched coz of joonishi, his smile is so adorable and the girl is cute too.it wasnt really that memorable i read more dont ebeven remember the music. The driver guy was funny and i liked the manager lady. My favorite part was watching eun ha so being aggressive and initiating kisses and sad part was the Christmas puppet stories. Other than that it was ok

i just finish this drama, and i regret how could i miss this GREAT drama!

First of all, this is my first review, I'm trying my best to not spoiled anything. Now onto the review,

Story
To be honest I'm sold to this drama because of its storyline.The main girl life seems so perfect, but then an accident happen, one by one puzzle pieces were revealed. As the title suggest, she's given read more 49 days to collect 3 drop of true tears.

Acting/Cast
Lee Yo Won definitely my favs in this drama. Her acting was superb, being able to distinctly change her expression. Jung Il Woo acts perfectly as Scheduler, lot of scene with him adding comedy to this not-so-happy-going drama. The other cast also great enough to make me glued to my chair.

Music
The music is okay, there's some track that i love as it add more sad-feeling right.

Rewatch Value
A second watch maybe will lessen the excitement of this drama. But I think this drama still worth a rewatch, as the story itself is so meaningfull.

Overall
At first I didn't put a high hope for this drama. Turn out my expectation is very wrong! You people should watch it, for me the story and acting was very superb! Also please always keep your tissue beside you as you will used it a lot !

This movie is absolutely stunning. I knew this movie existed for a while now, but i didn't watched it. I really don't know why, but i'm so glad i did now.

First of all you think this is a sweet movie (unless you haven't heard from everyone how sad it actually is and how much they cried), because the daughter is so adorable and her father is soo goofy it's really sweet. read more But then when the father is taken away from her, because he has to go to jail, you're already about to tear up... or at least me.
I can't describe how much i loved this movie, because it was so funny and sweet, but at the same time so heartbreaking.
I loved every character from the adorable little daughter over the people from cell no. 7 to the jail gurad and the chief (with little exeptions... you know who).

The story is told really great and it leaves you wondering about a few things like unfair treatment and false accusation (which leads to unfair treatment of course).

In the end i cried so much, i really coudn't breathe. It was the first time i cried so much since hachiko i think..
And if you haven't seen it you should obviously watch it, because of it greatness. But beware: Bring at least 2 boxes of tissues with you.

The Murder of Snow White is based on a book by Kanae Minato, so I knew it was going to be great. And it was.

The story was fantastic. The ending was a bit predictable, but the story was so mysterious that I didn't really care. This film is filled with black comedy, which I LOVE. It can be said that this film criticizes the huge influence that social networks and the read more media have in our lives, and how they can even ruin somebody's life.

The cast was fantastic, but the best performance was given by Mao Inoue. It's clear why she's considered one of the best actresses of her generation. Go Ayano, Nanao, Misako Renbutsu and Shihori Kanjiya were great too.

The soundtrack was amazing. It fitted the film perfectly.

In conclusion, The Murder of Snow White is great thriller, with great performances and filled with black comedy. I highly recommend it.

N no Tame ni caught my attention when I read that it was based on a book by Kanae Minato. Kanae Minato also wrote a book called ''Confessions'', which was adapted into one of my favorite films ever. That's why I decided to watch it. And it turned out to be AMAZING.

The story is slow paced, but it's extremely addictive. It's very mysterious you never know what's going to happen, and read more I didn't figure out what happened during ''the day of the incident'' until a few seconds before that scene started. I loved the way they used the scenes of ''the day of the incident'' throughout all the episodes, adding a few more seconds to the scene in each episode. There were a ton of beautiful moments too. Also, the character development was brilliant.

The acting was AWESOME. Nana Eikura was amazing, she did a great job playing Nozomi, one of the best performances I've seen in a while. Masataka Kubota, Kento Kaku and Keisuke Koide did a fantastic job, too.

The music was SPECTACULAR. This is probably the best OST I've ever heard in a japanese drama. I can't stop listening to it. And the theme song is really beautiful.

The cinematography was so beautiful that it left me astonished. You need to watch this in HD.

To sum up, N no Tame ni is a really mysterious and beautiful drama, filled with great performances, a fantastic story, outstanding music and a spectacular cinematography. You really need to watch this as soon as possible.

I wacthed Gomenne Seishun! because it starred two of my favourite japanese actors: Hikari Mitsushima and Ryo Nishikido. And it was pretty good.

The story is very original and quirky, I really liked it. It was very funny and entertaining. The story also tackles on some very important issues like discrimination, bullying and LGBT, which rarely appear in japanese dramas. What's more, they were tackled with a surprising seriousness, and that was read more great.

The cast was great. Ryo Nishikido and Hikari Mitsushima were fantastic, as I expected. The rest of the cast was also great, but Yuta Koseki deserves a special mention for his performance in episode 8.

The music was nothing special, but the theme song by Kanjani8 was pretty good.

In conclusion, Gomenne Seishun! is a very funny and well acted drama that also has a serious side when it tackles on some very important issues, which I appreciated.

I decided to watch ''Crying Out Love, In The Center of the World'' without knowing too much about it, and it surprised me a lot, because it's a fantastic film.

The story is completely beautiful. Yes, it's very sad, but it's a fantastic story. Many people say this film is too slow, but I didn´t think so. In my opinion, the pace was perfect for this story.

The acting was great. Mirai read more Moriyama and Masami Nagasawa were fantastic, especially Masami. Ko Shibasaki was very good too, but she has a rather small role in the film. Takao Osawa was the weakest one, but he was very good too.

The music was quite simple, but it fitted the story and the tone of the film perfectly. The song at the end credits was beautiful.

I also have to mention the cinematography. It was gorgeous.

To sum up, ''Crying Out Love, In The Center of the World'' is a beautiful but sad film about first loves and how those have in an influence in our lives, even when we grow up. I'll definitely watch it again soon.

P.S. The book the film is based on, which is titled ''Socrates in Love'', is even better. I really recommend it.

/My expectations for Wakamono Tachi were REALLY high. I mean, just look at that cast. That is, simply, one of the best casts in drama history. At the end, this drama turned out quite well.

The story was very simple, but beautiful anyway. It was also pretty realistic, although there were times where it was a bit corny and/or slow.

The acting was the best thing in this drama. The cast was read more outstanding, but I think Hikari Mitsushima, Yu Aoi and Eita gave the best performances. Satoshi Tsumabuki was great too, but he was a bit over the top at times. The rest of the cast was fantastic too, but they weren't as good as the ones I mentioned, in my opinion.

The music didn't really stand out, for me. The theme song was pretty good, but the rest of the music was not really anything special.

To sum up, Wakamono Tachi is a great drama, with an outstanding cast and a good story, even if it's a bit slow at times.

I am BIG fan of my sweetheart Kang Dong Won and i will support him in anything he is but why he always breaks my heart?!

Story:
The plot is great and it shows the people that there are such horrible cases as the sickness the main boy had. Our Dong Won played amazing father and he was simply...amazing. I think every kid should have such amazing father as he was. The read more emotion he showed me..i just couldn't watch it without any tears. The story whole is so beautiful that i have no words for it.

Acting:
Great. All actors did amazing job.

Rewatch value:

Okay i think i should write a review on my first korean movie. The movie that brought me in the world of korean dramas.

Story:
The story it's just simply GREAT! It has completely everything and u just can't get bored while watching it! It has action, political issues, martial arts and as we all want romance! The romance is not just ordinary romance because in this movie we see strong love read more and also forbidden one. The combination is absolutely amazing. The main girl is not girly and actually HAVE balls to go against killers which one of them is our main handsome man Kang Dong Won. I have fetish for long hair men so i melted okay?! With his hair, his acting and the mystery surrounding it...it's simply amazing and the best movie koreans ever made! The love is so pure and strong that i didn't saw it in other movies...simply outstanding and beautiful. I will forever keep it in my heart. I just wish there was a bit sequel. I know it ended very romantic but still....we don't want teasing. But yes it ended how it should be based on the characters. <333 I just LOVE IT!

Acting:
Everything was amazing. I concentrated on the main leads which made me to fly high because of their intense meetings. It wasn't JUST fighting...it was like confession of their love. Dance of lovers i would call it. The main girl Ha Ji won is completely my style. I am almost similiar to her...i just loved to see her bursting in pure anger and sadness...i just love it. After watching the movie u can die peacefully.

Music:
I have whole OST on my phone and i play it as a lullaby. What more should i say to it?! The one who did the music did a great job! It fit everything....i just must clap and do standing ovation...It's amazing. It can bring u tears to ur eyes even if u are manly as me!

Rewatch Value:
EVERYDAY! If i had the time i would rewatch it everyday because it's freaking awesome! Everytime u watch it, it feels like u watch it for the first time. It brings u back the same emotions!

Overall:
THIS MOVIE SHOULD GET AN OSCAR!

I really enjoyed this show - there were plenty of thrills and spills, and I was emotionally connected and invested in most of the relationships in this show too. Seems like it didn't do too well in the ratings, which is a pity, as I think it doesn't get the credit it deserves.

The show starts off right in the centre of things, which is great and gets you excited about the read more events that have transpired. A theme I enjoyed from this show is the father-daughter bond which is the beating heart of this story. Yes the romantic relationships were important too, but this familial relationship is the strongest and most compelling for the characters and viewers. Another theme I enjoyed is Taesan's personal journey during his two weeks on the run, his maturation and self-reflection on all the wrongs he's done to the people in his life. It's so damn satisfying to see him making an about-turn in his outlook towards life.

But about halfway through the drama, I started feeling slightly weary, which hinted to me that this wasn't an *excellent* drama. There's just something missing from this show to make it excellent.

On a positive note, Lee Jun Ki did a very good job with this role. He was utterly committed in all aspects - the action scenes, his conversations with In-hye or his daughter Su-jin, and in particular, my favourite, the scenes of self-reflection. Park Ha-sun was good too, particularly in the flashback scenes.

The villains were alright, but I guess one thing that got me frustrated was how the villains could sometimes outsmart the good guys so easily, or even how the villains were so incompetent at being villainous.

On the whole, a very very thrilling ride, packed with action but emotionally compelling and heartwrenching.

Ah, where to start with this review.. Overall this drama was by far the best historical drama I've watched. It has the perfect combination of everything. Story, characters, music, comedy, heartache. During this drama I've cried, I've laughed, I've laughed and cried at the same time, and I've even punched the screen out of frustration. I mean, there's really no other way to describe this drama it was beautifully tragic.

The story read more of this drama was very well developed and everything was spaced out very evenly. You would think that because this drama is so long with 29 episodes that the story would drag out, but no. Never once was I bored, and as soon as one storyline ended a transition was carried out smoothly and the next storyline took off without a hitch. The great thing about this drama is that each character gets his/her own little story. Every one of them have depth, which is why the entire series is so heart-wrenching. If you're wary of watching this because of the episode count, don't worry its entirely worth it. The first couple of episodes may be slow because it's a backstory, but I promise you'll get hooked as soon as the actual story starts.

Oh, dear. The characters. I'm warning you, this is going to be a reaally long paragraph. First of all, let me start off with Yeo Woon. Freaking Yeo Woon. Woon is just so....Agh seriously. Woon is by far the most pitiful character I've ever come across. His fate was to walk a lonely path, and he walked on the path alone until the end. He's someone who's essentially a prodigy. He has amazing martial arts skills, and he has friends and people he can rely on. But he was raised to be an assassin. He has to betray his friends. He likes someone but her heart is taken by his best friend. And yet still he walked that path alone. To be an assassin is to bear someone else's pain. Woon bears so much pain by himself, but in the end no one was there to help him carry his burden. In the end he was the most selfless person out of all of them, but no one knew that except for us pitiful viewers. His character is just so so so sad. He never let himself have happiness. Always blinded by that stupid fate of his. I cry for him, but he's not even real. That's just how pitiful he is. Anyone that watches this will not only pity him, but also love him too. He's supposed to be a bad guy, but we all love him anyway. He just has this cool aura of badass. Not to mention he's played by Yoo. Seung. Ho. Like dayum boi he can really pull off long hair, I'm sure gonna miss it. Then again, both the child actor and the adult actor can pull off Woon's swaggy long hair. I would get into the other characters, but then I would be writing a novel. But seriously, if you're still hesitant, watch the drama for Yeo Woon. You definitely will not regret it. The only complaint I have about this is Ji Sun. While I appreciate the fact that she can shoot a bow well and that she's a strong independent woman, she's just so bland. Her face is always the same, sometimes I even think that maybe the episode had stopped playing or something. Her voice also never changes. It's the same with everyone she talks to. No emotion put into it, no nothing. Not to mention she had no chemistry with Ji Chang Wook whatsoever. But yeah, that's all. Yeo Woon. Did I mention Yeo Woon?

I really enjoyed the music. They were paired perfectly with scenes, and thanks to the music during some sad scenes I would burst out sobbing, it was just so sad. During happy scenes, I would laugh and smile along with the characters. And the fight scenes. Oh, the fight scenes. Literally they looked so genuinely epic it made me want to learn martial arts. Except of course, in modern day swords are completely useless against guns. Still, swords may be useless, but there's a reason they call it martial ARTS. Swordsmanship really is an art. It's beautiful, graceful, and deadly. Getting off topic here, but yes I will definitely be downloading some songs. (*cough* Wild by Park Eun Tae *cough*)

Overall, this drama was a beautiful drama. Tragic, but beautiful. I really hated the ending though, so much that I wanted to cry. It's not so much that the ending was a bad one, it was just one that I personally did not like because it was so heartbreaking. I understand though, that it was needed. I got closure. But I sobbed my heart out in that last episode. For a cast of characters that aren't even real. Ha. But that's just what dramas do to us, huh? Anyway, please please watch this drama. I swear you won't regret it. Yeo Woonnie, Fighting!

After my second time watching it, I'm making a review. This first time I saw it was when it originally aired and it got a 10/10 for me. It was one of the first doramas I saw so I thought I'd rewatch it again now, seen as I've watched over 200 doramas since, and my god it's stood up. 10/10!
The story is amazing and touching.
The music is cryable (every dang read more time that theme tune comes on I wail like whale!).
The interactive between both characters and the actual actors themselves is so amazing and their friendship both on and off screen can be see and is so tight knit!
The tumbling is amazeballs of course!
You just can't not watch this drama and not feel like crying from sadness or from utter joy!

As you can tell; this is the dorama I cry at every 10 minutes!!

It is truelly an amazing and touching story &lt;3

Okay so i know lot of people waited for this movie like months because of one actor/singer Do Kyungsoo from popular band EXO. But we are here to rate a movie so i can't only watch his beautiful face right? Let's get down and think about this movie. See it through my eyes.

STORY:
The story can be rated as the most horrible movie ever. If you have different opinion that's your read more problem but look at it. The story has absolutely no point at all. As i can't say spoilers i just say that whole movie is about the same thing and the plot won't move from the place. I waisted my time for this movie. I will never watch it because the point is hidden and let me clear it...i DON'T see any point in this movie at all! As in the description '' the team of sellers fight for justice'' oh come on. They fight WHOLE movie and at the end it's not solved and it's all unrealistic! If it was normal situation NORMAL people who's company did something illegal would sue the company and the police would arrest them. No, these ladies as all team of sellers were ladies did something also illegal and than they were shocked why they ended up the bad way! Well i was cursing whole movie because simply boring/unrealistic/stupid/not-moving-plot was there. If u enjoy the slow plot with NO reason than go ahead and watch it i'm not stopping u. I saw lot of movies guys but this was the worst. I thought it would be full of life and a bit action so the plot would go on but no plot change at all...nothing. I expected so much from this movie but i ended up dissapointed!

ACTING:
Acting was great as the actors were proffesionals but they could do whatever and still the movie was bad. U can't watch good acting with good plot. Many viewers wanted to mostly see Kyungsoo BUT i counted that our Kyung had only about 8 screen shots? So that's very little. I was impressed how good he can act so point for that one. Other actors were also great as i saw them before.

MUSIC:
Was there any? My favourite part from this movie is...THE CREDITS! Sorry but Kyungsoo's voice is the best at the end and actually light me up and not like the movie that was boring as hell.

REWATCH VALUE:
None...u can bash me/curse me but i won't change my mind. Show me one thing that you learned from this movie except doing illegal things and fighting! Only the kid actors were cute and had a point!

Rom-coms with mistaken identities are hilarious and especially when characters play along out of whatever emotion: friendship, love or just being plain mischievous, the ensuing circumstances are hilarious. Watching the characters concoct stories, build up scenarios and get into all kinds of predicaments was a hoot to watch. But at the center of it, ran a love story and the cutest bromance possible with all their trial and tribulations.
This is the read more first time, I have seen the second leads get their show going and then the mains come in after the fact. interesting in a good way. The second leads are the life of the drama, crackling with good-natured energy and enthusiasm. The second lead male is like a boy who never grew up, you want to scold him but smile instead, in that way the actor fit the character to a T. The main leads are GORGEOUS to look at. WOW his smile! and she is very charming too. The supporting cast is well-built up too. The main parents and Aunt are hilarious, so many meta references to their real-life accomplishments was a sneaky humor. The Main's Dad was so lovable, Best Dad Ever!.
The reasons why some act as they do is all made obvious to the viewer. No screechy females, no over the top villains, no deathly melodrama either, which is good. The music sits well with the situations. Every thing was going sooooo well, then why did I suddenly began to skip......... for the simple reason it...began...to.....draaag. So many good points and then so many let downs. Oh my disappointment! But I still watched it to the end hoping for it to pick up tempo and thankfully it did, towards then end.Not a lot, but enough to make me feel my time wasn't all lost.
So watch it with a smile, my advice: when progress becomes slow, reach for the forward button but don't miss out on the ending.
