This drama is a hard-watch. It's great at some aspects and terrible at others. The kind of drama you can't drop but you feel frustrated watching it. The writer had an idea. That idea was great. But she messed up when she involved the over dramatic love story especially with a really bad-written and acted female lead. The sub-plots were so interesting. But at the same time the troubles the characters went through were exaggerated much. The comic scenes were amusing and hilarious. But the supposed touching scenes were cheesy and superficial. The music, songs and performances were magic. Nothing I've seen before in a drama. The drama showed all the issues happening in the behind scenes of entertainment business. That was cool. But the way they were presented made me feel like I was watching a makjang rather than a musical drama.

Themes like Brotherhood vs. Love, misunderstandings ruining lives, being human means making mistakes, mistrust, rivalry and suspicion were presented and again in a dramatic way. At moments -especially when they were singing or the supporting characters were on screen- I would gape at the screen mindblown. And at other moments I would be gritting my teeth fighting the urge to vomit.

For the music and the supporting actors, the drama is totally worth it. But at the same time there are the other issues. So..

I will and I am re-watching the songs and performances. I even wrote the titles of the songs down to keep them. As for the female lead, I'll try to avoid dramas she's in when I can.
I'll try to avoid the writer as well.

If you enjoy Korean music from different decades, then this would be a good drama for you to watch. They take some of the biggest hits and use them to make a fun and enjoyable drama. The rearrangements of the songs are fun and flow with the drama well.

Although the music was good, I'd have to say this is not the best drama when it comes to the plot and some of the acting(but it's not bad). The connections between the characters are farfetched and everything wrong that could happen, did happen. It was fun seeing how the characters would develop and overcome their individual conflicts, though.

The drama is definitely funny and it's not too long(just 12 episodes). If you're a fan of Korean music from all the ages, then this may be a drama for you to try out.
