Where to Watch Hi! School - Love On
Cast & Credits
I call this drama the king of circles to my friends. Why? Because this drama goes in circles over and over and over again. The problem is that this drama should have never been over 10 episodes. The writers stretched this plot so thin that most episodes after episode 9 is the characters talking about the same thing without the plot actually moving forward. It stayed inside of a repetitive state that almost became unbearable to watch. The only thing that kept me watching was Woohyun and Seul Bi who were the only light in this drama. Also the drama has some of the dumbest plot devices I've ever seen.
As for the cast, I think they did an okay job. As most of you know this drama stars the young wonderful actress, Kim Sae Ron, and the two hot Infinite band members as her leading boys, Woohyun and Sungyeol. Kim Sae Ron is the strongest actor in this drama. While I do think Woohyun and Sungyeol do need to work on their acting a bit it wasn't that bad. I think Woohyun was the luckier one in the character choice because his charisma shined through. Sungyeol's character is one of the oddest characters I've ever watched. The writer's made a complete 180 with his character around the halfway mark and decided to make him the villain. Too bad they forget to give him real character motivation to make him a villain. It made Sungyeol's character hard to connect with and at one point I could say I really hated his character. There is a difference between teen angst and just being an asshole. I actually felt bad for Sunyeol (the actor) that he got a character like this. As much as I started to dislike Sungyeol's character the worst character to me was Angel Sunbae. He is a character with no purpose and almost seems to be used as a tool after a while. He would be gone for 3 episodes and then pop back up just to cause drama. He had no other purpose other than being an asshole. This also lead me to questioning the whole angel society because somebody should be regulating these angels.
The writers failed to give the rest of their characters any depth too. They had so many students there and it's a shame that they didn't use them to their advantage. Some of the students had cute romances but I felt like they could have built on these characters a lot more. By the way, the adults in this drama act like children. I have never seen adults act so irresponsible in my life before. They were even more childish then the students were.
The strongest part about this drama is the music. I usually don't pay attention to OSTs but this one is very good. It was the best thing about this drama to be honest.
As for rewatch value, I give it a 2. I would never go back to watch this drama but if I did it would only be to see the beginning of the show.
I would only recommend this drama to people who are fans of Infinite or tell them to watch the first nine episodes for Seul Bi, Woohyun, and Sungyeol (when they actually had common sense) and then skip to episode 18.This drama to me, story and character wise, wasn't good. Even the cute moments between Seul Bi and Woohyun weren't enough to make me stop disliking it. The writing was just too repetitive and the characters refused to grow at one point.
I really, truly enjoyed watching this drama. Not because it's deep or serious is super original story-wise... but simply because I've always had fun watching it - you can lean back and enjoy, just don't expect it to be more than it is: a nice and simple high school drama, with lots of fluff, cute scenes and fun.
It's a high school drama about an angel that became human and two guys that become interested in her romance-wise. Nothing more to add here, read the plot.
The acting of the three main actors was perfectly good. I've always had the feeling that the actors enjoyed themselves and had fun while filming, especially Kim Sae Ron who acts impressively good for her young age.
Not the best soundtrack ever and highly repetitive (although that is usually the case with K/J-dramas...), but still cute and it always fit the story.
Definitely high for me! Simply because I became a total addict to this drama and there was always just one episode per week, so I always rewatched the episodes to help my addiction.
Also, I'll definitely rewatch the series some time later... whenever I feel like watching something fluff, easy and funny...
I loved it! The feeling I got from it was a bit Coffee Prince - like. Like the actors themselves really enjoyed being these characters and having fun with each other in comedic scenes. Every week when this drama aired, it was like coming up for fresh air and it totally put me in fangirl-mode... I'll miss it a lot!
