Bad Boys J did well. The music wasn't as entertaining as it should've been but it still got my attention.I enjoyed the fact that the main character was introduced weak and you would've only thought him as a side. I give thumbs up on the fan (girl *wink*) service. Though the battles could've been a bit more realistic, especially their stumbling were kinda over acted. The never ending turn about, when one read more stories ends anther begins. The cliche hero changing people. The adorable and cute boys. Honestly just about everything you'd want to see in a title Bad Boys J.

I love how I get satisfied the most with dramas where I didn't expect much. Oh boy, what a lovely surprise Let's Eat was. It was one of the best underrated kdramas I've seen. Half romcom, half mystery, 100% food porn -- that's Let's Eat.

Its slice-of-life take with a hint of mockumentary is a refreshing combination, not your usual kdrama, and in this case it was nicely presented. It worked because read more the characters are interesting and relatable.

Lee Soo Kyung as Lee Soo Kyung is so easy to emphatize with despite her paranoia. It's easy to understand where she's coming from, why she's so guarded, except for the times she's eating. Her eating scenes are hilarious and she can easily beat Meg Ryan in orgasmic eating.

Yoon Doo Joon was super effective as Gu Dae Young. I've seen him at Splash Splash Love and both times I loved him. Gu Dae Young is a smooth talker, funny and weird, but you can easily see that he's considerate of others and that he's a genuinely nice guy. His love for food and its proper consumption is so funny and charming, I love how mock-angry he gets when someone says something ignorant about food. I always looked forward to his food spiels.

Yoon So Hee as Yin Ji, Soo Kyung and Dae Young's young neighbor, is so optimistic and amusingly dense. I normally get annoyed with such character but it was easy to like Yin Ji because she genuinely sees the good in people. I saw Yoon So Hee in Marriage Not Dating before, and I must say that I liked her more here.

The supporting characters are all funny although Oh Do Yeon the female lawyer sometimes got on my nerves for being so delusional. The real star though was the dog, Bara.

At the core of this drama is the message that no man can survive alone. Even if you live alone, you need people to lean on -- neighbors, officemates, families, friends. I liked that as the show progressed, I saw how the characters grew and built awesome friendships, most of the time through food.

My question at the end of every food scene -- which is a lot, btw -- is this: how did they not get fat while filming?! At least a third of each episode are just scenes of them eating. The food scenes are so long sometimes that I end up fast forwarding it. I mean, I love food but I was more interested at the stories of the characters.

Although this show was classified as romcom, the romance part didn't come until later and even then I didn't expect it. I really didn't see it coming but man, I loved it. I loved how it slowly developed and that words weren't needed to seal the deal. Which is why I was so sad when I learned that only Yoon Doo Joon starred in season 2. :(

The show could do away with the mystery, especially the second one, but I guess they needed some of it to establish the romance. It just sometimes felt that the mystery was forced.

Overall, Let's Eat was a real treat.

I truly enjoyed this drama. It has the blend of humour and mystery. The romance is subtle but very touching. Each episode is focused on a day of events of Kyoko Okitegemi, a private detective as she takes on her assignments. The early episodes are fun and light hearted, but it gradually builds up. Soon, you find yourself caring for the characters especially the leads, Kyoko and Yakusuke, as they deal with read more Kyoko's daily amnesia. The mystery plots are interesting, varied and unpredictable. Unlike some dramas, the plots do interlink, and they help build the characters and the relationships between them. The drama climaxes nicely, leaving me wishing there was more...

I've been in a 8.0 rating slump and I have finally got out of it! Yesss!
I did originally watch this for the comedy and I wasn't feeling it until Episode 5 when really every character just goes wild. I laughed so much and I'm not much of a LOL-er.
I sped watched the first few episodes to get a feel for this drama. There's one main secret and all the characters read more responses to it are so hilarious the way they try to keep it hidden or try to reveal it. There's a lot of raised eyebrows and winking.
I think the interesting thing is that a lot of the troublemakers will talk big but they in the end don't really want to hurt each other.
Towards the middle of the drama there enters a new character who really spices everything up.
The ex-girlfriends completely go crazy with their own agendas.
The outrageous scenarios in this drama and the chaotic feel is nailed so perfectly. I was always waiting for the other shoe to drop, but not in a bad anticipation, it was very satisfying when they had their knock-em-down-drag-em-out moments.
I could feel the face-palming that each of the characters wanted to do every time.
The ending takes on a different tone, but it's still a lot of fun and really holds its own. I like that it simmers down on the comedy aspect and instead finishes off with a deeper exploration of the characters that makes me feel more connected with them.
I was watching a Chinese dr ama at the same time as this and I just have to say, Korean dramas just capture the feels so well. And they portray people with so much heart. The actors put a lot of personality into their moments that make their relationship and their drama unique.

Myeong Soo
I bumped the rating of this drama up another .5 points because of this guy. I just really liked his personality.
I think after watching Rooftop Prince it was nice to have a hero who was an ordinary guy – not too up himself and willing to help without a hidden agenda. I really enjoyed his soothing demeanour.
He's more boyish than childish which is a big difference and he doesn't have a hint of arrogant chaebol.
He's really funny and never failed to amuse me.
I really like that he makes an effort to maintain good terms with Soo Jin. Myeong Soo is even quite physically affectionate.
His exasperated face always made me laugh. And he is exasperated a lot surrounded by four crazy women that he genuinely cares about but has no idea what to do with.

Romance
Myeong Soo and Soo Jin have a great relationship as friends. They gel together beautifully. And I love how they joke around so physically like mates. They have a lot of fun together and I love their inside jokes.
I liked their unusual dynamic. They don't hate each others guts and get along so well. Both of them know how to give in so it feels like an equal relationship. Financially, socially, and occupationally, they are equal as well. I really liked the even playing field.

Soo Jin
I like that Soo Jin isn't overly sensitive to insults.
She's not a young, inexperienced thing either.
“Being passionate is so yesterday.” she's not endlessly cheery and optimistic.
I love that she stood up to the Lioness and even the Lioness was scared of her.
Also, random note, how classy does Song Ji Hyo look with her hair up? And I liked her cute glasses.

The Ex Girlfriends
“Because we're going around together, my intelligence is evaporating.”
I kind of like how they all had their personalities but all had the weakness of Myeong Soo.
I liked seeing them go from enemies, grudging allies to friends...and then back to enemies.
There are no elders but these three are so freakin' meddlesome and always picking sides.

Director Jo
This guy just made everything so damn interesting. I love in the second part how sinister his takeover is. Also, because of the situation, pretty much every single one of his lines is sarcastic. It was so hilarious how he became a part of the gang. Although, “Why did you become one team with that abnormal bunch?” was a very appropriate line. He also has this face that constantly looks like he's thinking, “Oh why is this happening to me?”
His banter with Myeong Soo is a cracker.

“How long are you going to follow Soo Jin around?”
“Longer than you will.”
“Didn't you get rejected by Soo Jin last time?”
“'Aigoo, that's the first part of the long process of pushing and pulling. This person only watched the opening and thinks he's watched the entire movie.”
“There are many movies in which the opening is the only good part.”
[both reach for the rice cake] “Eat something else.”
“I picked it first.”
“You were the one who cut in.”
“You didn't even look at it first!”
“Why are you challenging me after I picked it up?”
“Aren't you trying to take something that I had in mind from the beginning?”
Soo Jin - “Um..excuse me, there are lots of rice cakes. Lots of potatoes too.”

Music
The music is very appropriate and works well with the drama. While I wouldn't say it's good music, I do think it's a progressive step towards more diverse soundtracks in Korean dramas.

The Ending
It's obvious it was a quick wrap up because the loose ends were suddenly shoved together in a HEA.

This is the number one feel good romantic drama of the year. Great main character couple, So Ji Sub and Shin Min Ah, with off the chart chemistry. What an amazingly cute couple. Shin Min Ah, got so beautiful as she got a little older from My Girlfriend is a Ghumio. Her trademark dimples were so incredibly cute, you've got to see how it worked to rope in So Ji Sub. After read more Master's Sun, I was not sure if he could do another drama, that could measure up. I was pleasantly wrong. Oh my Venus, surpassed my expectations. This man stays in incredible shape, so being a fitness coach was a great fit for him. I also absolutely loved the supporting cast as well. 5 of my favorite male actors in one drama is almost mind blowing. If you understand English, Henry, from Super Junior was a hoot.

Drama was so good, the episodes went so fast. It was funny, it was incredibly romantic, I thoroughly enjoyed it. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

Oh god i just love Zhao Wei. If i have to choose one actor/actress in the entire world it would be her. She's like my role model so i'm bias to all her works. But i would say that this one is a great family drama and it really hits home for me. It really reminds me of my own family where EVERYONE meddles about the private lives of another. What I read more love about C-dramas is definitely their ability to warm up your hearts, slowly but surely. It's the kind of drama that you can watch while you're doing assignments or doing any daily activities. There's also a realistic appeal to it which I always look for in a drama. It also gives a refreshing perspective on Chinese tough education in comparison to the west. I also like how it teaches me about finding the balance of ambition and just simply having a good life. Sometimes constantly trying to be on the top is so exhausting and it requires certain sacrifices.

I also like Tong Dawei, even though his character is soooo confused?? and not assertive AT ALL. With this kind of character sometimes you just want to scream. But in a weird way, I do like his relationship with Vicki here and it ends well. He has redeeming qualities and Vicki's character is flawed also which definitely adds realism to the drama.

The first series was a bit of a letdown from what I thought it was going to be. For the second series, maybe because were were already introduced to the characters, I thought it was better. There were one or two episodes I could have done without (I'm not a fan of all of the characters so the single-character focused format of a couple episodes were painful to sit through). Other than read more that the ending

Story: Its a continuation of the first series. So if you liked that then you'll like this one. The only real difference is that there is a solid ending for everyone (you may not like it, but...)

Acting/Cast: I really can't complain. Even though I rated this as a 8.5 overall, I can't argue that the acting was bad. It was amazing, especially considering the racy topics. Whether I loved, hated or was just frustrated with a character it was solely because they were doing their job well.

Music: Cute and fitting. And when the actors sang or the band played it was believable and appropriate for the scene and characters.

Rewatch Value: Nope. I mainly watched this in order to find out how a few of my favorite characters would end up (hopefully together!) so it was hard to really get into everyone and truly appreciate the drama as a whole and it never really won me over fully. But (depending on who you find yourself liking) there are some VERY funny and rewatchable scenes.

Overall: It was ok. Better than the first, but still left me wishing for a few different endings.

This is my first review. I’ll try to not make it very long but I’ll apologise in advance because I really have a lot to say about this drama.

This is, for sure, a must-see! If you want to watch something thrilling, with a lot of moving moments featuring two brothers whose relationship is tormented by the past and you love stories with a bit of a psychological side, don’t think twice. read more I didn’t even hesitate on giving this the highest rating. I had only a watched a few episodes and I already knew I’d be giving it a high score. But only after watching the final episode (which doesn’t disappoint at all), I decided that it deserves a 10/10.

I don’t want to give too much away so I’ll only tell you that the story goes way behind the synopsis you can read above. In my point of view, the perfect word to describe the plot is “thrilling”. I never got bored watching this. A lot of dramas tend to drag a bit from episode 11/12 but that didn’t happen, fortunately. There were many powerful scenes full of tension but they were pretty well balanced with a few feel-good scenes (mostly consisting of the romance since the drama doesn’t focus on it as much as it seems). There were a lot of unexpected plot twists (mainly in the last episodes) and I loved how they build up to the climax. The way flashbacks were interlocked with present actions was extremely clever and not confusing at all.

I have only great things to say about the actors: their performance in conveying the characters emotions and thoughts was totally convincing and I think that it wouldn’t be possible to choose other actors who could fit better each character. They make you feel so intimate with their character that you can feel their suffering. Seo In Guk, in my opinion, has a remarkable ability to adapt to every role he gets. Park Bo Gum’s role was exceptionally performed (I’m definitely going to watch more of his work and I’m looking forward to what he’ll do in the future). Choi Won Young did such an excellent job with his character that I even got chills. Jang Na Ra was also brilliant and Do Kyungsoo really contradicted the myth about idols not being talented in acting. In most of the dramas I’ve watched so far, there’s always a character whose story I’d like to know better or whose point of view seems lacking. In “I Remember You” I didn’t feel this: I was extremely satisfied with the character’s amount of screen time. It’s a story full of wonderful characters who, individually and as I group, add a lot to the drama’s quality.

I couldn’t finish this review without mentioning the OST, which I really liked because of the feelings each theme evoked. However, it isn't the best OST of all time but it did its purpose: matching each scene’s atmosphere.

I don't even know where to start with Kiss Me. I guess I could start by saying that it's the first Thai drama that I've watched and I most certainly will be watching more in the future. Kiss Me is based off of the manga, Itazura na Kiss. There have been countless adaptations of the story, but this version really stands out from the others.

While Kiss Me does follow the story read more and premise of Itazura na Kiss, this version had its own twist to the tale. While I don't dislike the other versions, I didn't need another perfectly accurate-to-the-manga adaptation (I already got that with Mischievous Kiss: Love in Tokyo). Instead, Kiss Me provided a new and interesting take on the classic story, without completely changing the plot. While there were some changes to the story itself, I thought that they were well thought out and made sense. Of course, there were a couple scenes omitted from this version that I wish I could have seen, but I'm not too bothered by it. One of the biggest surprises was when they changed one of my favorite scenes (the rain scene for those who've seen it). It's one of my favorite scenes in all of the adaptations, yet they totally changed it in this version. But I actually liked the change and really liked what they did instead. While I love that scene, this version did something unexpected and it was refreshing, since I've already seen the other versions.

The acting was fantastic. I loved the whole cast and everyone had great chemistry. While I love the characters in the other versions, I'll admit that the male lead is a jerk and the female lead is over the top and annoying. Yet in this version, we got to see a nicer (not always nice) male lead and softer portrayal of the female lead. I was able to relate to both of their characters more and thought it was a nice change from the personalities that I'm used to. Plus the two leads had absolutely amazing chemistry. I haven't seen Full House Thai yet, but that will probably be the next Thai drama I watch. I was extremely impressed with Aom and Mike and can't wait to see them again in different roles. Another character that really surprised me was the 2nd male lead, King. In the other versions, while he loves and cares for the female lead, he's a little bit of an idiot. In this version he was more calm and collected, and extremely sweet. This is probably the worst case of 2nd-male-lead-syndrome I've gotten out of all the adaptations.

I really liked the music as well! I especially love the song that Aom and Mike sing together. I'm amazed how I can even feel and see their chemistry while they're singing. Plus I'm a sucker for OSTs where the actors actually sing. The soundtrack was a wonderful combination of instrumental and vocal pieces, none of them iconic, but all enjoyable.

Overall I was really impressed and pleased with Kiss Me. It's not the most accurate adaptation, but it is in my top 3 favorite adaptations. I've very excited for season two especially since I don't know what to expect. I'm assuming that it will also follow the basic plot of the manga, but due to the changes in season one, I'm sure that season 2 will also be a refreshing take on the story. I would highly recommend watching Kiss Me. Whether you're a fan of ItaKiss, or are looking for a good 1st Thai drama to watch, it's definitely one to check out.

When I started this drama I was wondering why the ratings differed so much. Well, after finishing I got it.

First of all, Kim Soo Hyun upstaged all of them. He was the brightest actor among them all, his acting was matchless and the awards he got for this are damn well deserved. Yeah, the other leads were good, too (esp. since I really like Gong Hyo Jin), but not as much read more as him. Following KSH, IU was the second one I was really impressed with. I totally loved her character and IU acted her out pretty well.

I laughed off my butt through every episode. Seriously, Kim Soo Hyun's character was so loveable from the beginning to the end, esp. his drunken state (and his family! was great). The actors and their characters went very well together. They harmonized pretty nicely, you could feel it.

The unusual way of handling the camera, the scenes, editing, interviewing and everything else was refreshing and fit into it (well, this drama WAS all about 'producing'). It took on so many clichés and exaggerated them so hilariously, that it clearly made my day (well, many days, to be exact).

There were two things I was disappointed about. First, the romance part. It started nice, I was full of expectations, but the way it turned out left me quite unsatisfied. Why start something like that, develop it so nicely and then...? I don't want to spoil the outcome though, maybe I'm the only one who felt that way and others were satisfied with it. Idk.

The second one specifies the "2Days, 1Night" scenes. I would have loved to see more scenes from the show that was aired within the drama. They shot the scenes and talked about the editing and the airing, but showed too little exact scenes from it. Every time I got so damn curious and was left empty.

Nevertheless, I enjoyed the drama and I did gave it a 9.0 rating because I laughed so hard so many times that I won't forget about it for a long time. It even got me to cry in full scale in one scene.

Rewatch value only 5.o because although it was good, I don't think I will watch it again, in reagrd to my 'plan to watch'-list. It didn't get to the point where I would rewatch it when there are so many other dramas prior.

Music was nice, nothing remarkable though.

Unlike many fans, I did not watch this show because of Vic Zhou or Barbie Hsu. In fact, I did not know them for I watched Mars before Meteor Garden... There are so many detailed reviews already; I'll just avoid another recap.
Mars is one of the best, if not the best, romantic drama/movies I have watched from Korea, Taiwan, China, Japan (plus a dozen from Thailand).
I do not write reviews read more normally since I am probably not contributing more than what everyone has written already. That said, after watching over 300 dramas and almost 100 movies by now, there are a few that I find truly outstanding. Mars was probably one of the first 50 shows I watched, yet I have decided to write about it now because Mars deserves significant praise after experiencing so many other shows. Mars is timeless and a masterpiece.
Mars' story is pretty good but Vic/Barbie acting makes it fantastic.
It is beautiful to see how Chen Ling wins over Han Qi Luo; how those two fall in love; and, how they hold and help each other as they grow...
I must say I did not like when the plot turned dark because of Tong Dao; however, that is how the author wrote the story.
By the way, after this show, I decided to watch all Barbie Hsu and Vic Zhou's works-- Mars is the best.
I truly highly recommend watching this series!!

It is fully about how disguisting and crual can be (korean?) society. The drama is stuffed to the edges with intrigues, evil-like people, and abusing of kind-hearted people. It's super-hyper exaggeration of unfairness that people can face - absurd and nonesense, not realistic one, and all other synonyms of these terms ;)

I dropped this drama and then only watched some moments from further episodes to see if it by chance gets read more better. But it was still same.

I like Joo Won the actor for his very simple and yet handsome image, and great acting. But I unfortunately don't like any of his roles. May be he is too unlucky with scriptwriters. His character Park Shi On in Good doctor is unique and somehow interesting, and JW's acting is great though. Unfortunately... I couldn't see anymore how adsurdly others push him to the hell.

Seeing this drama detailes before watching it, I was interested and excited with the plot and the cast. But it was a big disappointwent.
