I just started watching this but you know when you don't get popular cast due to budget cut then cast look alike actors. Thats what happened here(in my opinion).

The 19 year old one looks like Seo In Guk and the 29 year old looks like Kim woo bin. I shit you not. I had to look clearly to confirm they were not.

The premise is good and different characterisation is also read more good. But the 29 year old one, I mean come on. If you got crush on someone you don't go around fuc**ing people of her friends, colleages etc in front of her creating an image of playboy, slut. Then go around moping after finding that crush has fallen for other guy. Come on , what kind of shit is this character smoking??

Will update after watching other ep.

This drama has it all romance and suspense, however its your run of the mill Korean drama and i have seen a lot of similar once. Its very typical but doesn't lack its charm it was very fun to watch but if you don't have a lot of time on your hands i don't suggest delving to deep into this drama. they do switch actresses towards the end and i couldn't help read more but notice it, a lot! however watching it to the end didn't make it impossible and the actress did her best with what she got. overall if you like having a drama playing in the background while you do household chores like i do i recommend this one!

Totally recommended!
If you want light but thrilling drama, you guys should check this out. The only downside of this drama is that it gets really unrealistic at times but really enjoyable overall. The chemistry between the leads is SO LIT and I couldnt get over it for weeks. I really love the acting and there are no awkward moments of acting between the leads. All seems natural and legit!

The movie is great! Lots of action and fighting scenes, the plot is intriguing and full of surprises. I enjoyed watching it a lot. The best part for me is the relationship between Kim Je-Ha and Choi Yoo-Jin as these strong willed characters, full of power and each having its own drive manage to form a strong connection with each other.
The other characters in the drama are also interesting, each having read more his/her own thing to be remembered with.
I recommend the drama to those who like dramas like City Hunter or The Healer, for me watching this was a really thrilling experience.

At first I was skeptical about watching all four episodes. Of course I really thought Dash was hot, handsome and very cool. The actor who plays Dash, Victor, got so much more handsome since his last Ukiss Ugly Duckling series!! It was the girl , Rene, who at first turned me off. Just how she's a slob and so lazy. But as I stuck to finishing the episodes I found myself really read more enjoying the interaction between those two characters. I will say that the opening song is just so hot. Sounds so nice. And the photos. Just so nice. It's so cute and sweet. I wound up really liking this one. Really good! You should watch it! It's worth watching just to look at Dash! ;)

First of all, I really loved the chemistry between the main two leads. They were just extremely cute and it's also probably the reason why I enjoyed the show that much. To see Ahn Min Hyuk's reactions to DBS's cuteness was just... I was just in love of his acting in the show!
Then about Ji Soo, I just wish he will get the girl in a drama someday and be the read more main lead, he's a good actor and deserves it !
It's the first time I saw Park Bo Young in a drama and while I usually don't like the main female lead, I liked her a lot.
It was good to see a show with a strong woman ^^ I mean, usually in shows women are weak and are being rescued by men but here she was the one rescuing others and it was refreshing.
I loved Bong Soon's family too. Especially her dad. But yeah, to see that they took the wife beating the husband part quite lightly and joking about it was wrong. Even if they tried to explain it at the end... So, that was the part I didn't like about the DBS's mom.
I liked Baek Tak and the gang's part, that was quite funny. And I enjoyed even more the high schoolers part. I wish we saw them more.
Then the plot with the serial killer was also interesting but I'm disappointed that we don't really know his motives, his background.. Why is he really doing that? What made him become like that? How come did he have that much money?

So, I would say this drama is mixing a lot of different genre especially a thriller plot and a romance comedy part. I feel like they did it good but only in a shallow way. They didn't go deep at all and that for every aspect of the show expect for the romance part. Which is why I wouldn't rate it higher.
However, since it was a more of a funny drama, I wasn't expecting them to go deep I think, I just wanted the drama to be entertaining and it was.
Usually, dramas are funny in the beginning and then it is more and more sad with a lot of obstacle towards the end but here it was different. It was funny from the beginning until the end and that's what I liked in that show.

Of course, there is an exception : episode 13. It was the worst and most cliche episode of the show. I seriously was afraid the remaining episodes would be like that but thankfully they weren't. Seriously this episode doesn't make any sense for me. And, if ever I rewatch the show, I would probably skip it.

I wish we knew more about Min Hyuk's family, and that they went deeper about some characters and part of the show but well they just focused on the funny and romance part. They maybe could have add more episodes (2?) for that but well I still like it that way. I also think a second season could be great too. Maybe not with 16 episodes but well, I would watch it for sure.

The music in Strong Woman DBS is good, not great, but good. In the first episodes, I couldn't remember any songs from the show but eventually I did. The music was cute, refreshing like the drama. It suited it well.

So, I would say that you should watch it if you want to watch a funny drama that you are ready to not take seriously and just enjoy without thinking too much.

Take your usual rom-com, shake it up and reverse all the roles. There, you have it— Across the Ocean to See You. A show where the female lead is the aloof, haughty protagonist that calls the shots! And the male lead is Mr. Nice Guy trying to win the affection of his boss.

The writing is smart and super funny. I love the banter between Su Mang and Zheng Chu, alternately playful read more and frustrated. The mad chemistry between these two leads leave you wanting more.

This is an easy watch (mostly). No maddening hateful characters that take over the entire show and leave you drained. The last third of the drama starts to get heavy and melo-like but overall it is a very well done romantic comedy with sprinkles of melo. Supporting characters and secondary OTPs complement the show well without overtaking the importance of the primary leads.

The show does have its share of scratch your head moments. For example, where's the baby bump Su Mang? And the ending to one of the characters is questionable but these are but minor quibbles.

Overall, very entertaining. And the OST is super catchy. Loved it.

It's my first review so I'm not sure if I can be helpful but here we go.
The story: it's your typical drama plot, the only difference is that there's a lot of kimchi involved in the first third/half of the drama.
It's way too long, at one point the drama is literally dragging to the end, I finished it just because I had it in the background as I did other read more things. If we skipped all the unnecessary stuff it would have been a lot shorter.
The acting: The actors are good at what they do and facial expressions are the main point here, I was particularly impressed with the child's (the one that play Da-Yool) acting, for her 10/10. But again, there wasn't much variety in the acting as well as the characters don't really develop and the expressions you see in the first 10 episodes are basically gonna be it for the rest of the drama.
Music: Overused drama music and soundtracks, I gave it a higher score since I don't dislike them, but it's nothing new.
I wouldn't rewatch this drama, but if like me you like to have some background noise to which you don't particularly pay attention while doing other things then this is perfect.
Even if you miss something don't worry, half of the drama consists of flashbacks anyways.
Overall it is not a masterpiece but it's watchable, and made me crave for kimchi.

Edit/ (a little spoiler)
There's no fact check in the drama, they receive a newspaper from Italy and it's in korean, on top of that they talk about kimchi in Italy when we (yes I live in Italy) do NOT have kimchi in Italy, unless it's imported from korea and you can only find it in small asian shops.
I get that it might sound cool, but it would've been better without these kind of things.

It will be nearly impossible to beat 49 Days as the best kdrama for me,even up to this date.
The first time I watched this was in 2011,then in 2013, again in 2015 and just finished watching it today. I can relate to every bits of it.

Fo me this is a "Life Checker",I can get fond of things same as watching RomCom Dramas like Full House, Be carelessly in love as read more Coffee Price/Only You, be maturely in love as DOTS, be under love's mystery as Goblin, but just as how it is in real life, one should have a stage in their life to see how I've done in life so far, how well I dealt with people, how people dealt with me, how I felt about things in the past, present and future, how people might have felt towards me, and while being with the one you love sharing all nice things together and able to express your love really happens, at one point, there is a Han Kang in you or would wish someone like han kang exist in your life, the unexplainable love you have for a person or a person has for you that you get to show and appreciate or he get to show or appreciate, in spite of time, opportunities,distance, presence or absence.

And as for Ji Hyun's life in the drama:
"Does a reality exist where you do not mis-understand and you are not misunderstood? Is sincerely something i should consider first from my position or the other position?"
Even with purest intensions, you might find yourself asking those questions, but just as how the story turned out, the best way to life your life is to choose to love even if you ended up misunderstood, and to be sincere first even if you ended up being betrayed, because a person's heart can always change, and what you do greatly affect what would one's heart turn out to be."

Shout out to Lee Yo-won's acting, I have never seen any other Korean actress acted as good as her. There were not much of changes they had to with with her appearance to distinguish the 3 characters she played, her great acting alone was convincing enough.
Rest of the cast did good acting too.
Jo Hyun Jae, will always be close to my heart :)

How do I describe Healer? It's an action/romance/career oriented (the focus on journalism) drama that succeeds on all those counts. The male lead Seo Jung Ho (aka Healer) is a superhero with no superpowers, who comes complete with a cowardly public identity and a secret life as a kick ass "night errand boy." Female lead Chae Young Shin is a spirited journalist who struggles to do what is right and eventually gets read more caught up in a scandal involving corrupt individuals. Second male lead Kim Moon Ho is an older news anchor, whose longevity in the business hasn't hampered his drive to fight for justice and for the oppressed, and who early on finds a connection between himself and both Jung Ho and Young Shin- a connection that starts more than a decade ago, which involves their parents, who were also employed as journalists fighting for a just cause.

While this drama delt with serious issues such as the corruption of high ranking officials, a master puppeteer behind it all and a mystery/tragedy regarding Jung Ho and Young Shin's parents, it never felt like a heavy watch. This really worked for me, even if I am a fan of heavier melodramas. The fight scenes reminded me a bit of the Bourne series but they were graceful and acrobatic as opposed to brutal/gritty. The romance is what I'd call squeal inducing and the chemistry between the actor and actress playing Jung Ho and Young Shin is one of the best I 've seen. I really enjoyed watching him slowly fall for her. Initially, he'd thought her strange and annoying but once he got to know her it all changes and fans of the romance genre will enjoy the sweetness of their moments together.

Side characters such as master hacker Jo Mina and Young Shin's (adoptive) lawyer father Chae Chi Soo were also a delight to watch- their interactions with the main leads added a lot to the lightness of the series. Another thing I liked about Healer is that the main characters aren't always overwhelmed by the villains' actions. I've watched a handful of kdramas now and I've noticed that in the heavier ones I've seen they often write it in such a way that the villains seem to always be one step ahead of the heroes. I guess they do that to make the story more suspensful and aggravating for the viewers but this has always been a hit or miss for me. I'm glad they took a different approach with Healer. I wouldn't say that the villains didn't give the leads substantial difficulties to overcome- they certainly did. But the leads always came back fighting and then we'd get another round of challenges. This didn't make it any less exciting.

Overall, this was a fun, fast paced (romantic! action filled! hilarious!) watch and I can easily see myself rewatching this, even over many of my other favorites :)

Most beautifully haunting story about faithful love and makes you feel every emotion as if you are going through it all together with them. This has topped my list of dramas watched in my whole life so far. I almost always avoid starting dramas with more than 20 episodes but thanks to good reviews and in trying to get over Love O2O, I discovered this. Now I wonder how I will be read more able to watch other dramas because the acting was the best I've seen. Mark Chao made me believe YeHua Is real. This drama has set the standard and I believe it will become legendary among all dramas. I totally recommend this and it deserves 10 stars. I enjoyed this more than Goblin, DOTS, Coffee Prince, etc.

This series came heavily recommended to me when I was looking through popular website 'favorite kdrama' categories. The premise is that 8 students are stuck in school during Christmas break in the midst of a snow storm and there's a killer on the loose. Being a mystery fan, I decided to give it a try.

Overall, I'm glad I did but it really wasn't as exciting or suspenseful as some of the read more reviews made it out to be. The first half of the series dragged and was quite boring. The second half picked up and got better. I wouldn't say it wasn't worth the watch and there were things I liked about it. But I can't give it a much higher score due to the 1) slow, dragging pace of practically half the show and 2) there is a glaring plot hole that stretches my suspension of disbelief a little too much. Let's say that in these type of shows, the police/authorities are usually portrayed as somewhat inept in order for the leads shine in the detective/issue solving. In this case, the error was over the top- I couldn't even imagine a rookie cop making such a mistake. I know they wrote it this way so that the leads could have a needed showdown with the antagonist but I had to take away major points since the flaw is inexcusable.

There are good things about White Christmas. All of the teen leads did a good job with the acting and were able to potray the differences in their characters, as well as represent their character issues well. I also liked how each of them (with the exception of Cho Chi Hoon/Cho Ji Hoon) got some character arc focus at some point in the drama. Park Mo Yul was clearly the MVP, but each of them had their moment to 'shine' or something like that. Their interactions with each other, and with the adult characters, were the highlights of the show for me.

I think White Christmas was trying to achieve something unique with the crime/mystery genre but I'm not sure if it succeeded. I will say that it had significant differences compared to the run of the mill whodunnit murder mystery, police procedural or even Battle Royal/Hunger Games type of show where the leads are pit against each other...but did those differences amount to a cohesive plot where all loose ends are tied up in a way that is credible? I'm not so sure. The drama goes on and on about whether or not 'monsters are made or born?' but it doesn't really resolve it (or even leave an open ended question) in a way that made sense.

Ok, so perfect 10? Probably wondering why. I'm a sap for sweet romance, and this drama has it.

It's hilarious, the heroine is adorable and loveable.

I enjoyed every element of this drama. The cast had great chemistry and some of the moments had me laughing so hard I cried. The scenes were written beautifully. The crime element of the story was intriguing, and I felt like it left something for everyone read more who wasn't just interesting in the love story to enjoy about the drama.

The music in this drama is amazing as well, and whenever I hear it, it puts a smile on my face.

Strong Women Do Bong Soon is a pretty fantastic drama, there's not much I would change about it.

Initially I was worried based off the cover that the 'love triangle' aspect would be overwhelming (as it tends to be), but I was happily surprised that it was well done, and I didn't feel annoyed by it as I usually do when they spend 14 episodes dragging the main girl back and forth between two guys.

There are tons of memorable scenes in this drama, and all of her action scenes showing off her powers were hilarious and empowering.

Overall, I gave this a 10 because after finishing this drama I felt like a 10. I will definitely be watching more stuff from these actors, they are absolutely amazing.

I'm sure you've already read other reviews, but I do 100% recommend this drama to everyone, not just people looking for romance, It truly has it all.

Watching this drama, I often found myself in a poker face.
There were just fragments of interesting scenes..
I think what went wrong here is that the production tried real hard to merge various genres equally. I mean, they tried putting in the comedy part which I think doesn't went accordingly to the story. Yes, it would be much better with the comedy but it shouldn't be overdone.
Nonetheless, the actors are read more really commendable. Park Bo Young gave a really awesome acting here. She could pass into melo. The scene in somewhere about episode 14, WOAH. Park Hyun Sik also did a good job. I'm just kind of distracted when he acts kind of gayish (maybe because he's friends with KwangHee, lol). Lastly, I think Ji Soo could also pass as An Min Hyuk! He's really good and got great bod, hotter than Clara LOL.

Oh, and I can't help but notice Bong Soon's mom's pretty face. OH OH OH, and Jang Mi Kwan!! I looked into him and it's said that this is really his first project. WOW, he could go real far with his acting. I wasn't scared much as the drama has a weak storyline but his acting is really commendable.

Finally, what's really good about this drama is their OST! SUPER POWER GIRL!!

A piece of advice (well, it goes differently to different people), don't expect much from this drama. It's good but not as much as it is getting attention.
