Story: I really liked this drama. As a woman is always really hard to watch dramas where the female lead has to deal with an abusive love, but this one has very strong female characters and for the time of the set up of the story is very hard to find dramas like that. When I came across this drama at MDL I was really confused if I would’ve started or not, read more as I read that this drama had a very possessive love and strong scenes.. Since I watch a lot of lakorns (where this kind of behavior is really common) I didn’t find this one really out of planet, I do find Murong Feng selfish and hard to understand sometimes; but if you understand the time that the drama recite and how were man at that age I don’t feel like he’s really a bad guy for Jing Wan. I felt like he tried to lover her in his own way through the whole drama, just learning that love can’t be so selfish at the end but he learnt in such a beautiful way (I always think that if you do things wrong and unknowingly or knowingly hurt anybody, and after that do anything to fix yours wrongdoing it’s a beautiful way to grow into a better person.. After all we’re all humans and we’re born to learn from life). This drama brings to us all kinds of love, friendship. loyalty and how pride and selfishness can change a world. There are some parts of the story that are really overboard and sometimes gets a little boring, but overall the plot is really good so it deserves a 9.
Acting/Cast: Like almost all chinese dramas I have a hard problem with the acting of some actors, but I must say that the chemistry between the leads at this drama is amazing! Wallace Chung became one of my favorite chinese actors after this drama, I have a huge problem when I came across with actors who have beautiful eyes language and although sometimes his acting is a bit weird he nailed Murong Feng in a very handsome way. He could transpose all of the character feelings and almost all the time I wished I was Jing Wan, specially when he was kissing her (OMFG, he’s an amazing kisser! It felt like he was devouring her, such a passionate and hot kisses). Li Xiao Ran also did an amazing job as Jing Wan, my only problem was when she needed to look strong and firm since she looked kind weird, but almost all the time she transposed really well the feelings. For me it’s really hard to find good chinese actress, they always look weird for me but for this character they made a good choice.. I’ll repeat again: what an amazing chemistry and we have a lot of hot kisses! My huge problem with the cast of this drama was Qi Fang as Cheng Jin Zhi, I didn’t like any scenes with her.. her acting skills are really bad in my opinion and her wig at the beginning of the drama make it a lot of worse. All the rest of the supporting cast did a great job and did their role well.
Music: This drama didn’t had any memorable song for me, the music in the drama is really good but not too much into my liking ><. The one that I did liked was the opening song.
Overall: This drama became definitively one of my favorites chinese one. The reason is that I found all of characters here so real, so human. They deal with their pride, dreams and desires in a very realistic way; almost all the time putting themselves before the other (wich is very human) and they pay the price of their choices. I know that sometimes this drama can be very unrealistic, but wich drama isn’t? I found the love story very beautiful and I really liked the way the characters progressed. It’s a drama that is very worth to watch if you like historical dramas with strong leads and militar/civil war theme. After this drama I’ll try to find another ones with Wallace Chung, cause I fell in love with him here. Be prepared to cry a lot and be addicted! You will not want to get up of front of the TV, since this drama flows really well that you didn’t even see the episodes going by.!

This drama was on my list for a long time but I didn't pay it much attention. But after my recently developed obsession for Lee Joon Ki, I had to try out this one of his works as well.

So, what's this drama basically about... Love, revenge, adventure, action, drama. Park Yoon Kang, son of the head of the palace guard becomes a criminal after his dead father was falsely accused of read more high treason. Common plot in sageuks. He swears to take revenge on everybody who was involved in those conspiratorial accusations. And how is he doing that? He's taking on the new identity of a Japanese merchant.

Although the main story is nothing new, the way it was developing was quite interesting and kept me glued to the screen. One misfortune chasing another, and every time something good happened, at the same time a subtle ominous feeling was coming along. I was never able to relax because it seemed like the bad guys were always one step ahead which drove me crazy to a point that I wasn't even able to concentrate at my work.

What I liked about this drama were those well-defined, multi-faceted characters. Watching their development - for better or worse - was really interesting and sometimes shocking at the same time. You grew to like someone, understood him or her... and suddenly everything changes and you just get disappointed in that person. Or you discover a new side of somebody you didn't like at the beginning but can now relate to him/her a little more. If I remember correctly, the only character that stayed true to himself till the end was the main lead. And as we have Lee Joon Ki here, he delivered his role perfectly and didn't disappoint one bit. He just got even better during the drama.

I also and especially liked a particular bond between one bad guy and his daughter. Although I don't pardon everything they did, I'm still able to acknowledge the suffering that drove them. The only thing I really missed was the daughter's inner conflict caused by her lost love and the decision she made afterwards. I would have liked it more if they had made her look more torn by her actions in the second half of the drama.

But the romance part was sometimes lacking anyway. I was not always convinced by it as there were just too few scenes that got me emotionally. Most times it was solid but it didn't get me completely.

What also bothered me were those obvious moments where you just think "Wtf?! Keep a straight face if you're going to spy!" or "Stay at your hideout if you're one against hundred!". Minor issues but they kept popping up towards the end. Maybe I'm too stubborn on this as it is a general issue in k-dramas. So, don't mind me ;)

Nevertheless, something I enjoyed wholeheartedly were those awesome fighting scenes. Seriously, just perfect. I wish they had added more of those because it was highly entertaining to see Park Yoon Kang (Lee Joon Ki) fight off the bad guys. That alone should be a reason to watch the drama.

So, despite my small criticism on some points, Joseon Gunman is still a highly recommended drama in my eyes. If you wanna watch an adventurous historical drama, this one will quite satisfy you.

This could have been great. This could have been the next You're Beautiful with a more memorable female lead, but it just wasn't.

The story is nothing too unique but it's definitely fun and if executed well could have been excellent. The begining was slow but not horibble and towards the middle I really started enjoying it but unnecessary drama happened and the quality dropped. The story was going nowhere for about read more 8 episodes or so.

The main female lead wasn't really unique but following her was fun nonetheless. My feelings towards Lee Tae Ik and Won Gang Whee changed as the drama went on. At first I wasn't fond of our main male lead's unique or shall I say feminine personality but by the end I loved him for who he was and enjoyed a really interesting character, because we don't see that very often. The second male lead...while I really liked him at first towards the end my feelings changed drastically. During the start I even wished that he would end up together with Jang Man Ok but he did a thing that I hate the most - he played the victim card. Now me disliking Won Gang Whee is a really personal thing, ( and maybe influenced by the fact that he was an obstacle for the ship to sail ;> ) because a lot of people seemed to have liked him till the end. And sure, no spoilers, but I know that his situation was hard to endure and all but I do not have to force myself to feel sympathy for him, I don't have to make myself feel anything, the writers who wrote the drama dictate whether I should feel happy, sad or angry and if the mood doesn't match my feelings that is in most cases a sign of bad writing. But again that is just my personal opinion and don't let it hold you back form watching this drama.

Another thing is that they focused so much on the unnecesary drama that they left a lot of plot holes, especially ones concerning the characters's past. It angers me, because they could have spent all those hours on some decent characte development.

The music was...while a lot of people praised it I had really mixed feelings about it. The melodies were fun and catchy but the lyrics were...well I didn't like them at all, I thought they were cheesy and it felt like not a lot of thoughts went into writing them.

Overall the drama was average maybe less. I really wish that some writers wouldn't try to overcomplicate stories with love triangles, bad exs, unnecesary drama and bad attempts at making a story deep and meaningful, because without all these Full house take 2 would have been an excellent drama.

As I though I have seen most of the popular dramas out there and didn't know what to watch anymore, I came across this amazing, intense and beautiful drama, a real gem in the kdrama world. One of those which never got you bored, irritated or frustrated, one of those which make you want to watch episode over episode without pause till the end, and then regret finishing it so fast. (I read more finished it in just two days)

Story
Beautifully written, excellent plot, intense to the point that your heart hurts, and you cry and feel relief with the everyday of the characters. Love, family, friendship, treason, politics, traditions... as many say the korean version of Romeo and Juliet.

Acting/Cast
it's uncommon, a weird exception, but for me this was one of the few dramas in which every single character is play absolutely perfect. From the main to the supporting roles - the main couple, the princess Kyung Hye, Shin Myun, Jo Suk Joo, and the rest.
Moon Chae Won was incredible in this role, her character was strong, determine, intense, reckless and graceful, growing up in every single episode, gaining confidence as she tried to live with her name and her own decisions.
Kim Seung Yoo was no less, he showed so many faces along the series. His character was complex, enchanting, confident, full of despair and sadness, due to the different hardships that life has put on his way. Both of them, had a great chemistry. Their emotions truly surpassed the screen, reaching everyone.

Music
The OST was absolutely unique and original for a drama.
My congrats to the one who made the selection.

Rewatch Value
Should you rewatch this? Of course, I'll surely rewatch this someday.

Don't hesitate to give this drama a chance, you'll fall in love with the story, the characters, the setting and the music!!

~mild language. Like one word. ONE!~

Okay, let me start off by saying it is 1am, i'm in pieces, and can soundly say that this show has been the best experience of my Japanese drama watching life. This show has everything you want in a drama: Comedy, feels, bromance, action, drama, fourth-wall breaking, and leaves you wanting to punch a puppy you're so mad at it being over.

Story--9.0: Best goddamned revenge read more plot i've seen in a while. Throughout the whole show it never once dropped it's pace. Sometimes i had to pause in the middle of an episode to gather my bearings I was so overwhelmed or crying from laughter. The comedy and drama mixed so well together I was in bliss.

Acting/Cast--10: Okay. Lemme tell you a thing or two about this cast. These little s***'s have ruined me. Their chemistry was outstanding and heartwarming. Their stories will haunt me forever--even now i've turned insomniac from the pain I have endured.

Kamenashi Kazuya: This bastard right here deserves a goddamned award for his acting. He played the part of a mischievous thief swimmingly. His little 'meow's were freakin' adorable. The way he delivered the comedic relief...no words.

Narimiya Hiroki: ALRIGHT THIS B*TCH RIGHT HERE IS THE SOURCE OF MY AGONY! Oh my stars. I watched this show for this dude right here (because of Bloody Monday) and never in my few years did i expect to have him reach into my chest and rip out my heart. AGAIN. Like rude. His acting was phenomenal. Anyone who's gonna watch this show be prepared for falling in love with him. His character is so endearing.

Hirose Suzu: She's awesome. Total badass. 'Nuff said.

Music--10: Everything fit. Like. Everything. No negativity from this gal.

Rewatch Value--7.0: Well, going in to watch this show knowing about all of the plot twists kinda ruins the mood. Still, I'd rewatch it just to watch the comedy and pure amazingness. Although, i'm pretty sure I'd breakdown crying somewhere around episode 2 shouting at the screen and scaring my cat. That's just me though. So yeah.

Overall--10: Like whew. What a ride. Now i'm just gonna sit here and think about my life decisions and how much this show has ruined me.

Thank you Kaitou Tantei Yamaneko for destroying my soul. Thank you. Real pleasure.

I was really looking forward to Totto TV, mainly because it stars one of my favorite actresses, Mitsushima Hikari, and I wasn't disappointed at all. It's a really short watch (I finished it in just a few hours), but it's also really fun.

The story was great. It was really cool learning about Tetsuko's life and how the TV business started in Japan. I loved the style of the show: it's very read more lighthearted, and it quickly makes you hooked. I laughed a lot, specially during the first 4 episodes. There are few moments during the last few episodes that are more dramatic, but they're just as heartwarming as the rest of the show.

The acting was absolutely top-notch, just like I expected. Mitsushima Hikari's performance is arguably her best beside Soredemo, Ikite Yuku and Woman. It's clear that she had a lot of fun playing this character and that shows on screen. She carries the entire series on her own, but the rest of the cast was also very good, specially Yoshida Kotaro, Hamada Gaku and Nakamura Shido. It also made me really happy when Nishikado Ryo showed up for a couple of episodes, since he's one of my favorite actors. He's as charming as ever, of course.

As for the music, there is one performance at the end of each episode, and I really liked how they were incorporated into the story.

I also want to comment on the style of the show. It mixes a lot of different elements: there are times where it feels like a documentary, while at other times it feels like a biopic or theatre. It's a very original approach to the story and it makes Totto TV different from any other dramas.

In conclusion, Totto TV is probably the best drama I've seen this year, thanks mainly to a brilliant, charming performance by Mitsushima Hikari. I really wished it would've been longer because it's awesome. I recommend it to anyone looking for a fun, short watch.

I like how realistic this drama is. Very heartwarming drama about real situation in life, how to cope with sadness, anger, love, forgiveness. It contains life lesson. Beautiful story, love it so much! I can learn a lot while watching this drama. Sometimes people also have this kind of problems in life too and the pain is real. Life might not always be fair and we need to cope and face the read more situation ourselves. However, present and future are more important than our past, especially our loved ones who always support us, let's just focus on that :) coz we don't even have enough time in our life to hate, it's better to spend our time to love.

Jung Sung-Joo ( Secret love affair, A wife's credentials) is my favourite korean drama screenwriter.
Once I started watching her dramas I found it very difficult to go back to the ones I used to watch.
Everything looks so precise, so well thought, so realistic that you end up questioning yourself on how you were able to accept all that clumsiness that is the main ingedient of the average korean drama.
Heard read more it trough the grapevine is an amazing show that deconstructs the elements at the base of the typical rich marry the poor tale in order to question its moral assumptions.
From the start, the stereotype is reversed. Instead of an inexplicable and adamant purely platonic attraction we are confronted with the complex emotivity of two teenagers that cannot distinguish so clearly between the spiritual and the physical.
The progression of the story is not that through her unjustified pride the heroine, after having met every possible calamity to atone the sin of her poverty, finally enters the word of the riches. It's exactly the opposite.
Even the usual family revenge subplot is treated in a much mature way, without incredibly tragic past events providing material for lenghty heart-rending flashbacks.
I particularly like how the corrupted environment of the upper class, an essential ingredients of this kind of play, is not portrayed in the usual exaggerated manichean way. Instead of being pure evil ready to committ all sorts of crimes the characters walk the ambiguous line between a simple moral misconduct and the crime of corruption. Because in the end we do not expect lawyers to act like gangsters, even when they are shady they would somehow try to manipulate the law instead of openly breaking it. Moreover for once is not that everyone is willing to compromise is moral integrity for money ( As dramas have accustomed us to think), but people are moved by complex and intertwined motivations that can make a corrupted person redeem or vice versa.
In this respect I noticed that usually people appreciate how moral seem dramas or movies in opposing the poor good characters to the evil rich, seeing in this a portrayal of our society.
But firstly I do not think that the good and the evil usually present themselves with such clear distinction, secondly i dislike how the average drama end up teaching us that there is no use opposing the rich ad the powerful because their corruption is so deeply rooted that only ficitve characters with superpowers can oppose them. In Heard it Through the Grapevine, instead, we find a world ( as the one we live in, I suppose) where if you are not to greedy you can choose to be honest, that it is not so worse than being a corrupt rich, and people usually prefer to live honestly so that they can quietly sleep at night. In this respect I find exemplary how the people working for the Han family progressively end up questioning their authority and decide to leave them.
There would be much more to say about this drama, as for instance how it portrays the ambivalent power of education and knowledge to both free and bind people, but I think I'll end this review here.
Just to finish, I have to say that I find the narrative of this drama very compelling, I thought that every character and every subplot were amazingly interesting and in the end I really enjoyed watching it.

I don't know why a lot of people spout hate on this drama. I love it. It's one of the best I've watched, mostly because of the incredible chemistry between the two MCs. Gosh, they were just so adorable and friggin realistic! I love that the plot led to some closures between the characters. Park Shin Hye is all grown up indeed! She's becoming better and better. Her acting here is far read more better than her previous ones. The back story and the other characters were also very flavorful. They made the story brighter.

*sigh*

Now that I've finished this, I kinda don't know what to do with myself. What to watch next? lol

Anneyong!!

The whole medical drama concept is something i live for. I have watched hollywood and bollywood dramas but Hallyu sort of takes the cherry on the top because i actually get to enjoy it till the end. Coming to the drama,

Genre : Medical, melodrama, rom-com, action(though you won't see much of it towards the end)

Story-line : Troublemaker goes through personal tragedies to strive and become a successful neurosurgeon. The read more plot-twists are rare and a tiny dash of revenge is the only thing that keeps you waiting through a painfully almost realistic journey till the end. The excitement of Park Shin Hye being the action queen slowly dies down and she becomes a little annoying at the end. There are scores of tense medical situations and you are almost at the edge of your seats with anticipation but technically that has nothing to do with the base story. What makes it a melodrama is the mental ordeal that the characters go through and the growth in them. You almost start praying for the characters because they cute af and decide to forgive the weak ass story because the actors and characters have stolen the show away. With a weak story and fairly repetitive plot, you start to get bored of the main characters but the supporting characters are what to look out for, because i have had second lead syndrome but this drama takes a whole top notch for all the other characters too.

Acting : That is the only thing that kept me watching it till the end.... Hats off to the all the actors of the show because you start saving a soft spot for everyone at some point or the other.
Kim Rae Won's portrayal of Hong JI Hong is flawless. Either the character is perfectly donned or may be it's actually him, that you start believing him to be a goofy doctor because he's that good.
Park Shin Hye let me down a little. The first few episodes had a lot of promising character developments that you really don't want to stop seeing the tough girl that she already was (i personally feel they should have added a few more action scenes and instances)
The chemistry between them was so bad. I am sorry but the first kiss was horrible, the second kiss looked a little desperate and you are just holding your head trying to imagine what the directors were thinking when they cast them together. Although the actors tried really hard to play the characters well, it simply didn't work out.
I will have to mention the supporting cast though. Yoon gyun sang was a cute little lover boy, while you really want to see more about Baek sung Hyun and KIm Min suk's characters. All in all the actors saved the day!!!

Adoro o Seo In Guk, e foi um dos maiores motivos para eu assistir... Acabei demorando alguns episódios pra pegar gosto pelo drama, mas depois que a coisa andou... Achei a "gangue dos golpistas" genial! hahaha O retorno de um dos "violões" para ajudá-los a acabar com o chefão de uma vez por todas foi ótimo também... A retomada da "confusão de identidades" do começo também foi inteligente. Mas queria apenas mais read more um episodiozinho.... Quanto a OST, praticamente só tem uma música - se não for somente, tô confusa agora hahaha - enfim, ela anima e dá aquele embalo nas ações dos nossos golpistas favoritos. Gostei de ver que cada um deles teve de fato uma importância, não estavam ali apenas pra preencher buraco... Não tenho muito apresso pela Soo Younge acabei não vendo muita graça na personagem dela...

How do you let go of the past and live in the present? Doctors explores that question deeply through Hye Jung and shows the ramifications of not being able to let go of the past versus the hard decision of just living in the present.

I came for a romance and that's what I got with Doctors. I think many expected it to also be a great medical drama on top of read more the romance. Honestly, you can take them out of a hospital setting and the story wouldn't be that different.

I don't think the drama was as bad as many made it out to be but yes, plot-wise the story wasn't strong. It had a promising beginning with the potential for the story to really branch out well, especially with the revenge plot. In that area, the story wavered: it wasn't vengeful enough to go the revenge route, and it wasn't medical enough to create a compelling medical suspense drama.

I loved the cast though. Fun cast? Check. Eye candy? Huge check. Park Shin Hye as Hye Jung was such a fiercely awesome with her martial arts in the beginning and that was what attracted me. Unfortunately, it did die down as the drama went on but she still had her uniquely strong willed spirit that never gave up. Personally, I just didn't completely feel PSH and KRW's chemistry but not because of their past teacher-student relationship. If anything, I felt like even after they are both doctors, Ji Hong still cared for Hye Jung and looked out for her, as a teacher, more than lovers. Thankfully, the chemistry did get more convincing near the end but don't expect passionate sparks. Nonetheless, they were still adorable together and PSH's kissing scenes were well-done!

The supporting cast was hilarious, the residents, the nurses, Soon Hee, etc: everyone just made Doctors a lot of fun to watch! As I said earlier, the revenge/hospital politics plot fell flat so that made Doctors not as suspenseful as it could have been and it took up a lot of time with little progression between episodes.
I'm a little disappointed with Yoon Gyun Sang's storyline though- they could've done so much more with him! And Lee Sung Kyung, I actually really enjoyed her character, she came a long way and had tremendous character growth.

Doctors did follow a episodic patient storyline (well more like every 2 episodes) and some of the patient stories were in fact really heart breaking to watch, and wasn't filler. Nam Gung Min's cameo stood out to me the most as the single dad and that sub-plot had me in tears. So, as a whole I liked the interweaving main plot with patient sub-plot. Some of them even taught the main characters a lesson that moved the plot forward in the right direction.

The OST did its job in the emotional scenes but they didn't stand out to me that much-some songs felt a bit overplayed at times.

I don't think I would re-watch this as a whole. I did go back to some scenes though so that counts right?

I recommend this drama if you want to watch a fluffy, sometimes heart-warming romance drama with a dose of comedic relief and camaraderie from the rest of the hospital cast members, with some side effects of annoyance from the slow revenge plot progression.

I saw the cast and I immediately started watching .. I was instantly hooked! the plot was really interesting and I couldn't stop watching but that only lasted for a few eps.. soon enough, it reverted to the usual drama you find in EVERY k-drama! it turned predictable and the ending(not sure I can even call it that) was a huuuge let down.
Nonetheless, it was a good watch (most k-dramas don't read more have a good ending anyways :p ) ! the acting was really nice and it has some cool scenes.
I'm not saying it's bad , it's just a bit disappointing compared to the trailer and the first few episodes. so if you're watching this , don't have any high hopes. It's still really enjoyable and somehow interesting.

This is a korean drama for men. Or maybe for women that want to watch something manly.
Since I feel that most dramas are made for women, it stands indeed somehow apart from the majority.
That's how I can explain the enthusiastic reviews it gets.
But that doesn't mean that it is really something different, that would be for me something good or interesting. It still relays on a convoluted plot that read more does only a slight amount of sense, being only a pretext for a collection of cool scenes. Each character could be nice taken alone, but is clear that they are together only because so says the script. Also, as usual, there are liters of tears running down, plenty of emotional flashbacks, countless tragedies befalling the main characters and so on.
That's what i find annoying about this drama: you are constantly left with the impression that what you're seeing was only thought to look good and to lure your emotions in a cheap way, without paying a minimum of attention to the internal coherence of the story.
In the end is still somehow enjoyable, I liked the acting and Jo Dong Hyuk, but is not something above average.
