Summary: If you don't mind having numerous questions and suspicions unanswered until the final 2-3 episodes of a show, then you will love this. It has a steamy romance, several conflicts, a semi-confusing case of fraud, time travel (obviously), all mixed so that you're left in a whirlwind of confusion.

+/- Plot:
I wouldn't say that I was ever left on edge with this drama--there were no major cliff hangers that left read more me wanting more at the end of an episode, which may be a crucial fault as this drama was made to draw you in with its twists and turns in the plot. I will say that I was more often left confused than intrigued. I was really a fan of the first quarter of the drama, while I was bustling with questions they kept the plot line fairly light, due to the budding romance, and I wasn't too confused as to where the writers were trying to go with the show. However, about halfway through the writers began to focus more on how the show was going to conclude and building up the drama to the finale and that's where things began to fall apart and really drag for me. It felt like the lead couple was constantly fighting, making up, and fighting again. And since the writers were trying to keep the audience in the dark about the backstory the only thing holding this drama together was the romance--to which I have a few aggressions toward and will mention in the following section. Or when there were things revealed, it was done in a confusing fashion and left you even more in the dark then before--don't get me wrong if it's done in the right way then this is great for viewers, however I didn't feel that way about this plot line. The couple episodes leading up to the finale are where things start to pick up again and why I ended up giving this plot a higher score than I had originally intended. I felt that the writers got things back on track and made the story interesting and entertaining again and finally, almost all but one or two questions I had were answered by the final episode and I felt that they ended up doing justice to the show.

+/- Characters/Acting:
Lee Je Hoon and Shin Min Ah...I have so much confusion with this coupling. I was completely on board with them for the first few episodes and was shocked at how well they seemed to be hitting it off together. But then things got pretty steamy between the two and pretty much made me cringe. There were literally some scenes where I just couldn't watch because it was painfully embarrassing. Granted it may have just been the overtly cheesy lines and the constant flip-flopping (fighting then making up) that made me not enjoy the two more.
As for the two individually, I'm going to have to say that Lee Je Hoon outperformed Min Ah. I was a little disappointed as I had really high expectations having seen his outstanding role in Signal. However, he made you fall for his character even when you knew he was questionable and shouldn't like him, which is seemingly a hard thing to do. I think he did a fairly well job at displaying all the proper conviction and emotions during his scenes and did Yoon So Joon's character justice. Overall, I was left feeling pleased and satisfied with both his acting and character.
Moving on to Shin Min Ah...there's just something about her that I'm unsure about or dislike or something, but I can't quite put my finger on it. As an actress she has so much room for improvement. I could not ever get on board with her crying scenes and there were so many of them! They were terrible, completely outrageous. At some points I was convinced she was laughing until they showed her face. I will say that there were times when she played her role convincingly, but because of those crying scenes I have to say I'm just not a fan.
Baek Hyun Jin played an unusual villain; one that I'm not too sure I liked. His character while a little mental, simply was played out all too reserved in my opinion. It felt to me like the character was stifled and wasn't at it's fullest potential--I really love the actors that are able to perfectly depict the psychotic tendencies of a villain rather than, in this case, just escalated frustrations.

+/- Music:
I overall, really enjoyed the soundtrack for this drama and was one of the best things out of the whole thing. Almost all of the tracks were ballads, which I love, and were all beautiful in their own ways. My favorite songs had to be the ones by Seo In Guk and Sarah Lee. I was soooo shocked and delighted to hear Sarah's track as I have been following her even before she became a part of SuperstarK. She has such a great voice and thought that it went really well with the selected scenes.

Rewatch Value:
I would maybe consider rewatching this show, simply because I felt like I was left in the dark for the majority of it and may have missed a few things. However, after a fruitful debate of weighing the uncomfortable romance scenes, terrible crying scenes, and how the plot line strings you along, versus the questions and confusions I have...I would then make the decision that there are some other shows that I really enjoyed that I would prefer to rewatch. But at least I gave it some consideration!

***Shout out to the editing team that did a fantastic job of ensuring viewers weren't confused with when So Joon was in the future. I really appreciated the differential filters and the wide vs. full screen. At least I was never left wondering when it was the future and when it was the present!

What if you knew that the One True Love of your life would end in bitter tragedy and you were sent back with an opportunity to do it all over again? What would you change?

This series was short, 4 episodes around 75 minutes run-time, which if binged can be seen as one typical-length movie. HOWEVER, so much story is packed into that, with so many emotions and such a thought-provoking narrative. read more I couldn't help but think of my own past and kept asking myself if I would (or even could) make the same decisions the main character made.

The chemistry between the actors was fantastic and very believable. It was predictable in parts, and there's a strong seme/uke trope so I docked the story a star, but the title is Obsessed, so it lives up to its name. You will cry as there's both a lot of sad and sweet moments in this video. No screen time is wasted. The music was good too, fit the scenes. Definitely wanna re-watch this with a friend.

TL;DR: Would you give up on a tragic true love if you could change history? Think about it.

Let's get the elephant in the room out of the way -- Tomorrow With You is a slow burner. It is not an action packed, quick paced drama. This was not an issue for me, nor did it make the drama boring at all. I think this quality of the drama pairs well with the fact that the drama circles around the concept of living in the moment, enjoying life for what read more is, and reveling in the little things. It does have a more serious and melancholic vibe, although there are many comical and lighthearted moments sprinkled into each episode.

The plot of the drama is very meaningful and emotional. It deals with the subject of fate and destiny, and how sometimes there are things that are inevitable. There will be moments of frustration and annoyance that despite knowing the future, things still go a certain way, but it doesn't bog down the drama. The drama embraces the fact that some people tend to make the same kind of choices or refuse to change, but the characters and the plot adapt and keep the story rolling. In the end, it is a great reminder to be present, enjoy life's ups and downs, and to always be grateful, and all those other feel good life lessons. The drama also tackles issues like love and marriage, corporate greed and crime, family relationships, friendship and frenemies, and life's regret. Overall, I felt that the story had the appropriate pace and unfolded in accordance with it's vision and purpose.

The characters developed beautifully and I felt that as an audience member, I really got to know them and accept them for all their strengths and weaknesses. The changes in the characters were gradual and reflective of what they were going through in the story. The actors did a great job in their respective roles, and were really effective in conveying deep emotions in dramatic scenes, as well as comedy in those lighthearted moments. I also love how it didn't shy away from kisses and love scenes (though still very demure). The couples in the drama had electrifying chemistry with each other, and even the whole group as friends really had a natural feel to it.

The music was composed of more emotional slow songs and ballads. Understandable given the context of the drama, but I still really enjoyed them.

It's a great (re)watch and always gave me something to look forward to on the weekends. I hope people out there decide to watch it or at least give it a try.

Soo, clearly from my scores, you can tell I did not like this show lol.

Story:
I decided to watch this after watching season 1 of The Genius. I read in the comments that it was based on this drama, or something along those lines, so figured I'd enjoy the drama as well. I think the story is definitely the greatest aspect. It's interesting and right up my alley; it's a shame read more that the other elements of the drama prevented me from enjoying it.

Cast:
I don't know if this is the case with all Japanese dramas, but I found the acting weird. Like, I couldn't tell if the point was humour or not, which made it awkward to watch. I didn't know whether to laugh or feel the intensity of the scene. Basically, too awkward for me. The only character I kind of liked was Akiyama (I mean tbf, he was cool), but just not enough to keep watching this show.

Music:
I don't remember any particular tracks.

Overall:
It was just too awkward for to me continue. In all honesty, I hear that once they start playing the games, it's a lot more interesting, so I do feel compelled to continue it. However, not anytime soon, so it shall remain on my 'Dropped' list :(

This was my first Korean drama, and I really enjoyed it! I didn't actually know much about it, I just saw a few gifs on Tumblr and decided to check it out. So here's my first review:

Story:
I liked the story because it was different. Yes, there was romance, but it was also about the female lead realising her career goals and working to accomplish them. In fact, I was a read more bit surprised by how late the romance plot actually began. Also, I liked how it was set at a sports university. The problem I have with YA series set at some sort of school is that they're all quite similar. The fact that the story took place at a sports uni and we got to see the dynamics between different students within that setting made it interesting for me.

Cast:
I loved them! I didn't know any of them, but now I'm a fan of both Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk! I hope to watch more of their work. I thought Lee Sung's acting was amazing. She really played her character well, and her facial expressions are both humorous and adorable. Nam Joo Hyuk is just as adorable haha, and he definitely gave me the warm fuzzies with his coy grins. Although these two were my favourites, I really liked Lee Joo Young as well. Mostly because I could relate to her character more, she was the voice of reason in their crew lol.

Music:
I watched this a while ago, so I don't particularly remember any of the songs. That's why I gave it a 7. Unlike other dramas like Goblin, whose OST I don't think I could ever forget, I think this OST didn't have any particular stand out songs. Then again, I may just have a terrible memory.

Overall:
Good characters! Good story! Very nice, heart-warming drama to watch! ^^

As a fan of It Started with a Kiss, They Kiss Again, Kiss Me, Playful Kiss, Mischievous Kiss as well as the manga series, I can honestly say Miss in Kiss wasn't really the best version of Itazura na Kiss.

Wu Esther was quite adorable and I actually really liked Gong Yi Teng he's adorable but Lee Dino was completely emotionless. Towards the start of the series I thought Dino might actually read more have something special about him but sadly, he became more and more robotic as the series continued. It was very sad and almost cringe worthy to watch his interactions with Esther. Of course, his character is supposed to be like that but compared to the way other actors portrayed Irie-kun, Dino's version was by far the worst and most disappointing.

Would I watch a series 2? Absolutely, because I have hopes that Dino will bring more to the role. But as a remake I expected much, much more from this version of Itazura na Kiss especially considering how legendary the original was. You'd think they would want to do better in honor of the original series and the fans who loved it.

As a gamer I got really excited for this!!!
I really liked this drama because of the gaming.
As odd as gaming relationships are, they DO EXIST XD
(Totally relatable to this drama!)
The story is really adorable.
My first time seeing Yang Yang in here & I fell in love with him.
There are so many cute guys in this drama :3
(Huge crush on Zhang Vin & Bai White as read more well.)
One of my top faves for the rest of my life!

This drama is cute, warm-hearted drama. All the characters developed in their ways.

Kim Seul Gi performs this role well and this role seems to be easy one for her. Ahn Hyo Seop has potentials and I think he can improve further in the future. However, the main characters do not have that strong chemistry. Their chemistry is ok and natural.

The music is great.

This is worth watching drama.

I'm really unsure of my feelings towards this show. There were some things I loved, others that I hated. There were many times were I just wanted to stop watching the show, but I had to know how it would end.

My biggest issue was probably the male lead, Yoo Jung. With regards to the actor playing him, he did a really good job. But he does look a lot older than read more he should. Yoo Jung is just an unlikable character throughout the show. I'm not sure if the few glimpses of his past was supposed to make me feel sympathy for him, but it only strengthened my disdain for him. He has no redeeming qualities and frustrated me to no end. The Yoo Jung storyline was tiring and disappointing

The relationship between Yoo Jung and the female lead, Hong Seol, made no sense. They have absolutely no chemistry as a couple, it's uncomfortable to watch. It felt unnatural and forced. The way Hong Seol continuously rationalised and accepted Yoo Jung's actions because he did those things for her was upsetting as well, especially towards the end.

Baek In Ha and Baek In Ho were wonderful, I loved them. Honestly, I wish there was more focus on them. Also, Baek In Ho and Hong Seol had such a great relationship / friendship, you could see and feel their natural and effortless connection. They should have been together.

My disdain for Yoo Jung himself and his relationship with Hong Seol aside, this is a good drama. Phenomenal acting, and an okay storyline with compelling supporting characters. The ending wasn't as conclusive as I would have liked, but it wasn't too bad. I wont rewatch this though, I might just die from frustration.

I wouldn't recommend this to you if you're looking for something romantic and lighthearted, because this show is not it. It's also not exactly a dark or sinister show. If you're curious about it, watch a few episodes and see how you feel. And if you want to stop watching it, I won't blame you. You could even skip right to the last episode, you won't have missed out on too much, seeing as the storyline is very predictable.

(This is the first time ever writing a public review, so if some of the things i write are low key spoilers, then i apologise, i in no way want to spoil anything or ruin the show for the readers who are thinking of watching the show, i am just trying to write about my thoughts without giving anything away, which is quite difficult.)

The story of this show intrigued me, i read more love the whole 'Detective sees ghosts\ helps them solve their murders', it's what made me want to watch this show, the mystery the creators gave truly was there, and i wish they continued that, i wish the show was based on that story line, like the show Cold Case x the ghostly twist, it would have been amazing, however it did not go that way.

The main protagonist Detective Shi On (Played by So Yi hyun) ruined the show for me. Her over exaggerated expressions through out the show really put me off, For example - even after many episodes she would still be so surprised to see a ghost, as if she had never seen one before, and that really was displeasing to me, because the expressions she made in certain situations ruined the 'moment' in a way, if over-exaggerated expressions is your thing, by all means, i recommend this show. If not, it'll probably stress you out as much as it did for me.
This is merely a personal preference - but I wish she was a stronger person, both physically and emotionally, she was a very weak woman for a police officer and it made everything seem - for a lack of a better word - messy.

I wish the relationship between Shi On and Hyung Joon (Played by Kim Jae Wook) had their own show, the relationship between the two was so freaking adorable, i wish that couple had their own cute show where it has a happy ending and everything is adorable af. I truly only stayed to watch the flashbacks of the two.

Hyung joon's present character was very important yet very unnecessary, i understand why his character was important in the development of the story, however at the same time, in many scenes his presents was unnecessary, which really ruined some scenes.

I could write 100 paragraphs on how so many "coincidences" happened, from coincidental phone calls to coincidental characters entering scenes at the "right time", it was truly cringe-worthy. Nothing was smooth and casual, everything was just sudden and coincidental.

The ending of the show was the icing on the cake, i wish i could write about what a catastrophe it was but i cannot write spoilers, and that's what i would be doing. All i can say is - it was unnecessary.


(I'm not trying to bash the actors, or the creators of the show, it's just the show had the potential to be something really great and it went in a different direction in my eyes.
I hope no one becomes angry at my words, this was just my experience, if you enjoy/enjoyed this show, i am truly happy for you.)

My favourite Taiwanese drama and the best series I have watched in a LONG time!

I'm a huge Taiwanese drama fan, and usually there are about 1-2 good series released per year with a lot of familiar cast members. I decided to give this drama a shot as I hadn't seen a good Taiwanese drama in a while, and although I usually go for the romance/ comedy dramas (most Taiwanese dramas fit read more this criteria) I didn't know what to expect from this series as it was a melodrama/romance, BUT I am so happy that I started watching this.

This literally drew me in, within the first 10 minutes! I finished binged watching this drama in a matter of days.

The soundtrack fits with the drama and I have listened to the tracks over and over again (esp. the OP theme song.. LOVE the opening song). I love how the drama is filmed with the scenery/ mood of the drama being a little darker and more serious (usually there are always a cute title of the drama with cute animations during the breaks/ on the bottom of the screen). The actors have GREAT chemistry and the lead actor is SUPER HANDSOME, lead actress is BEAUTIFUL. It is refreshing to see new faces in this industry and I hope to see more dramas with the leads, because the acting was FLAWLESS and they played their characters really well- chemistry was 100/100. I felt every frustration, friendship, betrayal, sadness, love and happiness that the characters felt and overall I really really enjoyed this emotional roller coaster.

I love the story and romance in this drama. This is not so typical that it gets boring and cheesy in the middle, but a drama that constantly keeps you drawn in! It showcases the dark realities of the world and how a naive woman chooses to face it, which I really like. The only downside is the last half of the last episode where everything felt a little rushed, but for me, a Taiwanese drama that keeps me engaged for over 95% of the series deserves a huge RECOGNITION.

For those considering whether to watch it or not, don't say anything - GO WATCH THIS SERIES NOW! I highly recommend this drama to anyone who enjoys romance (with some cute bits in it too), handsome/ beautiful leads, stories about betrayal, friendship and building trust/ learning forgiveness. I really enjoyed this drama... and now that I have finished it.. don't know what to do in life anymore but rematch this series! GO WATCH IT :)

Damn... I never had a Chinese drama got me crying SO hard... Now that it is over, I am super, freaking sad and having withdrawals.

Story is soooo good. Got me so hooked and in love with this drama!
I was never a fan of Yang Mi, but ugh man she was perfect for the role!
I didn't think Mark Chao was attractive, but maaan, I fell in love with him...

At read more first I laughed at the summary thinking it seemed funny, but I got hooked and everything made sense. I finished it in like 4-5 days. Days after that, I don't know how to live anymore, I keep listening to the soundtrack (which is AMAZING BTW, my favorite song is Liang Liang) and reminisce about the drama, got me also debating if I should even rewatch it because I miss and love it so much... This pain felt so odd...

This is sooo good. I highly recommend it and it should be shared with the world. F*ck what you haters out there think, call me crazy, but this is currently ranked as my #1 out of all the movies in my life T____T I am so blessed that it was fate that I had came across this Chinese drama XD

This is my second thai drama that I've watched. I really really really love it than the first. Though the plot is really heavy but they made it in a much lighter way. I was really touched by Jee. I like the chemistry between Mark and Yaya they are really adorable. I hope more lakorns for Mark and Yaya together
