The best version of BOF ever, F4THAILAND highly recomended

When you are remaking a classic, the drama that had been watched by the whole world, remains the “first drama” of thousand of drama lovers (mine too). So it had to put its best work to at least maintain its reputation as a classic remake.

●PLOT VIEW
With all due respect, I had seen most Thai dramas with abusive, arrogant ML relationships go wrong with forced kisses and all, and BOF had this plot too, but F4 THAILAND did everything right with this classic. While the Chinese version put extra creativity to have more number of episodes, the S.K. version showed extra richness and some cringy moments.

The brand new Thai version compacted it to 16 episodes, making each episode into titular storytelling. It added all the highlights of the novel like kick, bullying, necklace, engagement, amnesia, etc and weaved a modern saga full of technology, love, and friendship. Every single moment is so practical and likable. Yeah, it gave a pure friendship between Gorya and Ren + a secret story of IRIS(MJ who is always left alone for no good reason).
The nuances in Thyme’s character just show that he has truly changed and is not like his past self. On top of that, instead of just forgetting about his past self, he faces it and clears the bad relationship with anyone he has treated harshly. ALL the characters are also so well shaped and portrayed. This is the ONLY version where the two main leads are perfect for each other. I can feel their strong bond and it’s not just because of their appearance but also their identical personalities (strong, unrelenting, and compassionate) I feel like that is just sooooo powerful.

Lastly, it's titled F4 for a reason, because they had shown THYME, REN, MJ, and KAVIN's friendship more prominent. They take each other back in good and bad. Bullying and asking forgiveness, teaching lessons and learning lessons. we can feel their extraordinary bond in each episode.

●ACTING
whoever did the casting deserves a raise, I had lots to say about every character because everyone deserves applause, starting with my favorite.
BRIGHT as Thyme, had a bulky build but a childish heart. Very perfect for the character, thank god he didn’t have any particular hairstyle but had the distinct trait of speaking incorrect words. His innocence is overflowed in each episode until we see how his mother had ruined him. BRIGHT had done a commendable job being arrogant, cute, shy, kind, snobby, and supercilious.
TU TANTAWAN as Gorya impacted everyone in a good way. She was like the unidentified leader of F4. TU is supernatural playing Gorya so effortlessly. She isn't shown as weak but as a strong yet compassionate person. She is gonna be my favorite FL of all the previous versions.
DEW as Ren, the person who can be the SML syndrome. But the pure friendship just saved it. He acted mostly with his eyes and smile. I paused at times to appreciate his smile.
WIN as Kavin, sincerely he didn’t seem like a playboy. But Kavin's character says he is, I think that needed some extra charm because he always kept a cold face.
NANI as MJ, this fourth member had no story but the Thai version secretly created a secret story for him. MJ's long hair, riding a bike wearing leather jackets show his badass mafia character.
PRIM as Kaning was so beautiful, I like her simple laced hairstyle throughout. She is a strong and helpful friend who knows what she wants.
Lita, Mira, Hana, Tia, and Roselyn showed a line of strong powerful women. And none of them could be hated for their characters but applauded for their realistic performance.
Also, Talay, phupha, and uncle Ga were amazing.

●MUSIC
The music is enchanting. I felt like I am at a musical concert. The opening track “Who am I” sung by F4 is worth millions of likes. Am truly happy that most of the songs have been sung by the actors themselves.

●REWATCH
Of course yes, I think this is gonna be a favorite of all. And if any new versions appear it will have a tough fight with F4.

●APPRECIATION
The use of technology and social media gives a modernized and realistic approach. Also, the Thai cultural aspect is improvised by showing the importance of flower garlands.
It omitted all the cringy content that many viewers didn’t like in the previous BOF version.
It pays tribute to previous versions in many scenes by mentioning the characters names in the background (like if you watch carefully in episode 15 the market name is Gu Jyun Pyon).

●QUOTES
Each episode title invisibly tells the episode story but they have a deeper meaning if given a thought.

●RECOMMENDATION
If you have BOF before, you should give F4 THAILAND a chance to show its charm.
If you haven't watched any BOF or any Thai drama before then, take F4 Thailand as a highly recommended one to open doors to the Thai drama world.

Cliche yet heartwarming

●FIRST IMPRESSION
I am overwhelmed and suddenly get all the memories of my school days flashing in front of my eyes. That first crush, that best friend, that picnic, those phone booth calls, and many others.
Although the memories are hazy cause we didn’t have access to the camera to click all the moments, but it still flutters my heart cause it is saved in the hard disk of my brain.

●PLOT VIEW
The movie is heartwarming with some light cliche teen story which is cute. Two girl best friend relationship becomes complicated after getting to know two boys HyunJin and WoonHo. The movie follows them falling in love and realizing what is important for them in life. Every moment needs to be cherished and do everything which doesn't make you regret it later in life.

●ENDING
The ending is bittersweet and must be seen carefully to understand why the movie is titled, 20th CENTURY GIRL. It tells us to enjoy every moment, cause many people as grownups are stressed in life and unhappy so sometimes look at the past to see how you were happy. enjoying yourself.

●ACTING
Acting is super by Kim Yoo Jung. Her long hair flying while she runs in the school uniform is breathtaking. Her eyes when she was crying made my tears fall, but she looked cute even with puffy eyes.
Yeon Du was reminding of her role from Our Blues and she is really good. I hope she gets more projects.
Woon Ho and Hyun Jin served the male charm needed in the drama. The friendship was nice as they cared for each other more than the girl.
Han Hyo Joo was a surprise and I liked her seeing, after her last work "Happiness."

●REWATCH
Yeah, it was a great watch so am gonna rewatch this.

●APPRECIATION
The cinematography is amazing, the time period when the internet had just started was not much stressful but used as some key elements were just perfect.
The lights and color usage were the visual appetizers.

●RECOMMENDATION
watch this if you want some feel good light movie.

short series with amazing story

I watched this drama for a quick break. It was short sweet and enjoyable.
I had a fun time enjoying the drama. It was like a sweet candy until the end. The story was engaging and as it's a short drama you don't wanna give up before its completion. It's worth binging.
Both the actors performed very well. All the emotions absorbed are well portrayed in the drama. Sometimes I actually wanted the story to be more in length.
As its short, it is unable to stir up the emotion in me
Watch it for a quick time pass.

fangirl depiction is so divine

●FIRST IMPRESSION
Wow, I enjoyed it a lot. The whole fangirl scenario was awesome depicting true fans, crazy fans, and obsessed fans. Any fan could relate to this show and be engrossed with the story. I wondered what I did in the past as a fangirl was cutting pictures out from the newspaper and sticking them to my diary.
but the shift of track from Sung Duk Mi to Ryan Gold wasn’t smooth. It felt like the title should be changed to His Private Life.
Kdramas taking a childhood trauma is nice but at times it felt forced into the story and creating more and more layers until I was bored. I wish if they kept the story focused on the Fangirl thing.

●ACTING/CAST
The cast is amazing. Park Min Young and Kim Jae Wook had charm oozing from them. Particularly their chemistry was so killer to watch. Park Jin Joo as a best friend was my favorite.

●FAV SCENE
When Ryan gold comes to know from Sun Joo Just friend relationship.

●MUSIC
OST is awesome. Especially “Help Me” shows the fangirl feelings with its lyrics.

●REWATCH
I loved to rewatch rom-com scenes. They are so light and heartwarming.

amazing lovestory within a typical Lakron

Being a Thai drama watcher the most interesting thing about lakron is, that it begins with a crazy overdramatic plot, raising the tension so high that, I can't resist but binge it. But the only thing that I don’t like about lakrons is the toxicity in the relationship between ML and FL. And this drama is exactly my type, besides an enticing plot, it serves a beautiful love story.

●SIMPLE ADVICE
-if anyone doesn't like the revenge trope lakron, please watch something else. there are lots of other dramas without this topic. stop watching what you don't like and rant about it.

●PLOT VIEW
The synopsis gives a clear hint of a typical lakron as Ingjan is forced to marry Sichon to clear off her debt. While he married her in order to take revenge. Well, Sichon's idea is to make her fall in love and hurt, and the relationship between IngJan and Sichon develops gingerly. the bickering of the duo is pleasant, whether in the bedroom or vineyard. At first, it might seem annoying (with one forced kiss in the beginning), but we get to see a warm love story where IngJan helps out and Sichon also takes her suggestion. They both were smart and perfect solving problems at the same time hot and sassy sharing explosive chemistry.
The past storyline of Tuscany is well developed and I loved how it was revealed in bits to maintain the curiosity of the viewers, that what actually happened.
Also, There are 5 evils wanting to split the duo creating a whole lot of confusion but making the plot very interesting, gripping, and full of action one woman Mekhla has a secret and is more dangerous than any other evils. Thip is Ex of sichon, these women fight but they aren’t bitchy. They show off their plans and mind games than using the ugly slap and back sequence. Also, there are a stepmom, stepbrother, and village chief are another set of pain and negativity in the whole drama.

●ACTING/CAST
Whoever did the casting deserves an appraisal to take in BigM and Hana as the leads
-BigM as Sichon, he is smart, clever, caring moreover loving. He loves IngJan to the core showing his loverboy and sexy sides. he was always full of charm and a good person caring about the workers and villagers. He never missed any opportunities to kiss her or hug her. They kiss passionately and it makes me want to repeat and rewatch. It made their relationship look realistic, as they were newly married but took time to understand each other.
-Hana Lewis as IngJan, is beautiful and charming like a rose petal, portrays a strong and decisive person, who never gives up but adjusts to time and situations. she took time to know Sichon better as a person, and also her feelings because it was a forced marriage. Her chemistry with the male lead was very great, Indeed the kissing sequence was so amazing to watch.
-Anisa as Mekhla, portrays a woman with a secret. She seems evil with her body language and I also got terrified watching her in dark scenes. She acted very well. Her secret reveal was well done
-Ploy as Thip seemed crazy at times but shows that she is a victim of her own bad choices. I have seen her before and she did well too
-Sasimorn, Sichons aunt is one beautiful character. I just loved her for her straightforward dialogues and good nature. She always tries to pull Sichon and Ingjan together.
-Fifa as Jomphop was a good friend and worker. I liked how he manages to maintain the peace in the vineyard and keep Tungpaeng aways
-Ching ching as Tungpaeng is one cute character who is oblivious of her father's evils. But she always stands on the side of goodness and does good deeds. People like her make this world a better place.

●MUSIC
I really liked the closing track. It's sung by the lead actor BigM himself. The tone and melody is soul touching.
The only thing I didn’t like about BGM is that it got sudden changes may be due to commercial breaks as we binge it, so it feels rather weird how it changes.

●REWATCH
Yes, I would rewatch this, It was entertaining and had epic romantic scenes for me to rewatch.

●FAV SCENE
Opening bedroom scene in Ep 8. I love how they bicker and fight. They are forced to stay together but the chemistry we see is full of charm and romance.

●APPRECIATION
I love the wardrobe of IngJan, especially the nightwear. They were elegant and cute, no wonder she looked tempting that Sichon can't resist.

●RECOMMENDATION
-Anyone who loves a typical lakron can watch JAO SAO JUM LOEY.
-If you are a first-time Thai drama watcher but want a mild dose of lakron, you can watch this.

●AFTERTHOUGHT
Although this lakron has a typical story but shows great chemistry of leads in a warm way. ML may seem vengeful but he is a loverboy IMO who was hurt. its a good drama that is entertaining with excellent leads characters and good secondary characters.

watchable

This drama was adapted from lots of internet novels reduced up as one drama. I once had an addiction to these Enovels so I kind of had this vibe. the drama is very short just goes straight into the story without any delay and FL is being abused by her stepsister to marry a disabled person and then he is a CEO of some company, rich like hell really dude. and then he wears a mask, was that even necessary, he was handsome, it was just to create a character vulnerability but this one failed for me. only if that mask didn't exist, and come on man we live in the 21st century, there are accident photos but not the photos before the accident really??
I can't say I have a predicament with the plot but it simply drives into a typical Cinderella story.
the plot is not original but the FL strong personality and devotion is the most attractive forte of this miniseries. just loved her, she was beautiful in and out... claps for her...

but for a super minidrama, it was pretty cool. fast-paced, ample acting, satisfactory production quality, good music, and a happy ending. GOOD WORK

There is no slap/kiss. Forced kiss,rape scene. No slap and back girl fight.

●I watched Great in my secret bride and wanted to see another one of his dramas so I searched for a long time and found SAMEEE(husband). the name itself gave me orthodox feels that it would be a typical arranged marriage. But wait the synopsis played a striking part and changed my perspective.
●Story- I thought this lakron would be as the name says Husband would be the breadwinner of the family, But here he takes care of his siblings after their mother passed away. Plays a gigantic role to maintain peace in the family for there is a greedy stepmom. And lastly loving a woman unconditionally and making her fall in love after the marriage. But that's a twist because their marriage isn't simple, it is the circumstances that put Rasika to marry Rab.
So all sorts of questions arise after the first ep. and with each episode, the questions get answered that
Why Rab doesn't want to be with his GF Sih.
Why he wants to marry Rasika when he has a son. And how many flings did he have? All the siblings accept Her Lady Walee, why at least one should ignore her.
How can a mother-daughter marry into the same family? It should be either siblings or in-laws. That relationship status just sucks.
●Acting- Great Warintorn was awesome and felt truly a husband material.
Preem as Rasika was awesome. I was totally surprised to read that she was just seventeen during this drama yet gave a totally mature and powerful performance.
Alex Randell as Ram was just wow. He aced his role as a rude brat who is affection deprived and only a tool for revenge.

●Music- I’ll love you all my life ost was used perfectly in BGM and is worth listening to.
●Rewatch- yes amazing chemistry and story

●Conclusion-Seeing this I felt why Mr. Christian grey had agreements before he went into relationships in fifty shades of grey
It was a total blast of emotional moments while on a journey to Rab and Rasika falling in love, embracing each other flaws, past mistakes, and forgiving each other.
●Note- there is no slap/kiss. Forced kiss, rape scene. No slap and back girl fight. Thank god for this lakron.

You can find this in JTBC Drama YouTube channel. Its quite fun seeing the cast doing other things than the original drama.
All the cast divides into two teams that is ADULTS and WHAT(the baby actors of the drama), each with four members. They play a game of guessing songs with the music played.

I loved watching Lee Do Hyun as he is most of the time in the character he is playing.I read somewhere that he is a method actor so this shows his dedication. He is in the character of our favourite hong dae young, teen version but still a father. His vibes are something else, makes you laugh on his amazing dance moves.
Here I also got lots of Hwang In Yeop visuals and he is ofcourse slow in the beginning but very active later in the game. The drama has little of him but here you will love him. He is teasing the kids team very much.

Literally In yeop and do hyun had more fun coz they have heard most of the songs than the kids team.
Do hyun gives ajusshi vibes but InYeop is More youthful.

Watch it to know who is the winner.

Since its no story and no acting series, i just rated 10, coz i loved every bit of it.

Why romance when we have bromance !!!

Am a big fan of medical dramas and love seeing all the surgeries and doctor-patient interactions. But this drama is just shot in the hospital premise and has a little medical aspect, it's more of the ghost world. with ghost and doctor helping each other to fulfill their needs to survive the cruelty of the world proving the title GHOST DOCTOR so apt.

●PLOT VIEW
Having seen a lot of K-drama, I had known that the secrets are meant to be known by villains, benevolent, and some family members. Wherein some try to use this secret and some protect you, the same happens in this drama too. The secret of ghosts in the body getting exposed in layers is done geniously. This drama while maintaining its ghost essence manages to cover today's society of greed. But it highly disappoints in the romance section, because it seemed very unnecessary in this drama. The Ghost Cha Young Min who is an ace cardiothoracic surgeon goes into a coma. And he somehow enters the new resident Ko Seung Tak who is not skilled. CYM is rude but seeing KST struggle, he needs to enter his body to save the patients. CYM's body gets better when they both do good, so KST helps him to wake up soon.
Also, I didn’t like the senior doctors who want to transfer the patient just because they don’t have one genius doctor. Why are they even there if they cant treat the patients properly? I mean the interns are shown running around every time for emergency and surgery both. And seniors don’t even give the basic treatment to the emergency patient.

●ACTING/CAST
I loved the entire main cast of this drama, but KIM BUM's character is so amazing. He is a man of exception. His witty nature and Ghost impolite character were done exceptionally well. I have been a big fan of him and seeing his various character it's hard, to not be one.
RAIN was good, I never get impressed by him but he is good. His angst and rudeness are pretty good to watch. His struggles of being a ghost are hilarious.
UEE is such a good actress but this role didn’t utilize her. She didn’t have a big part in the story and just felt like a supporting character.
SON NA EUN was a friend and keeper. I wanted to see more of her chemistry with KIM BUM.
The three ghosts and their head Tess had also made a good part of the story.

●MUSIC
The music was mediocre. “I can Fly Away” is the only OST that gives the vibe of ghost doctors which I enjoyed.

●REWATCH
Overall I liked this drama a lot. As I can acknowledge the flaws It's not going to make my favorites list, but it's certainly one of the good dramas I've seen in a while.

●RECOMMENDATION
It's a good watch, The story was pretty decent but got a bit draggy near the end, tho it was tolerable because of the bromance storyline. The chemistry between the male leads is undeniable.

●FAV SCENE
When the three ghosts show CYM how to be a better ghost.

●QUOTES
A doctor can wait for the patient, but the patient can't wait for the doctor - Ko Seung Tak

I took my conservative mind out and watched BOKU WA IMOTU for its excellent acting and enormous emotional turmoil. I completely loved it the way this story was told.
Story was better since they both had mutual feeling, unlike one sided forcing one on the other. While they both due to society standards knew they were wrong they still jump into this relationship. The story had a nice end but still I felt its incomplete. So I searched everywhere and read the full story, its far deep and the movie is just a very small part of it. Its a taboo topic but the way the story baseline and characters are involved its awesome.
Yori and Iku acting was superb!!! Mothers concern when she sees the clean bed was commendable. As we all know nothing can be hidden from the mothers.

Well I am from a society were I see cousins are also treated as brothers and sisters, and there is a festival for sibling relationship Raakhi in one religion. Whereas in a different religion there is marriage between cousin, so it wasn’t hard for me to digest this topic.

As its a sensitive topic if one wants to criticize and stop others from watching it, please don’t. see this as a movie. Its a good movie and let one watch and decide on their own if its good or not

Avoid if you are looking for romance or humor

●In dramas they say the person least suspected is actually the killer, following the same theory, the ADAMAS was at a place least expected to be and i guessed it right.

●I believed that nothing can go wrong when Ji Sung is in a drama. I have a strong faith in his projects for his spectacular character portrayal and amazing performances. I was a bit confused due to the twins concept but at the end of ep1, I decided to binge it. The story is unbelievably crazy, every episode revolves around ADAMAS Theft, murder, and powerhouse and when viewers think OK, the ADAMAS is found, a new twist happens and shows that what happened was just the tip of the iceberg with new secrets being revealed. The ending was a disappointment, I can be happy with an open or sad ending but a hint of season 2 was the least I expected. I don't want to be in a cliffhanger for a year.

●Acting is top-notch by everyone. No complaints about this., even the minor characters were bang.
#Ji Sung is always incredible. I was convinced with acting but not the actions so that minus the points of writers. He magnificently plays the twins and gives a usual twin sibling yet has a distinct emotional characterization.
#Seo Ji Hye playing Eun Hye Soo is a mysterious grey character. feels like a twisted, game-changer. To be saying psycho would be wrong, she is an elegant devious person. She is neither wrong nor right. She is a victim of a powerhouse but shows a strong character. it would still be wrong to put her as antagonist or protagonist until we know her full story.
#Lee So Kyung playing Kim Seo Hee was such a pain, she was on my nerves until the end. She was so stubborn and put everyone in danger with every decision she makes. The actress plays the character beautifully but was a pain in the head.

●Music is spooky and mysterious, like a series of mysterious events, it dropped at perfect scenes giving chills.
Park Hae Eun, as Sun, seems cute, but high on drugs. she really left an impression with her appearance as psycho. hope to see her more work.

● rewatching this drama is not possible because it is ending even though a roller coaster ride, it's disappointing.
● Also the twins concept is still a mystery cause I think the writers might have an unfinished base story so they left us with a hint second season.

●Watch this drama if like a thriller, mystery, or treasure hunt type of drama.
●Do not watch if you want some romance or humor cause the series has no romance, but an unusual tension between both the lead pairs.

Initially there are 6members playing the fun game but later there is a surprise guest that is Han so eun who played young jung da jung
The first part of game is to choose one of the two options for each question thrown onto every member.
With every question and answer there is some amazing conversation and opinions about the real world.

When the guest arrives the twins respect, for Han so eun and Do hyun is amazing.I love how the si-ah and si-woo still call her as EOMMA and Do hyun as APPA outside of the drama. They were so joyful to meet her.
Infact other than Do hyun nobody had scenes with her so it was first meeting for all of them.

There is the second part where a lie detector is used. The cast is given a yes/no question and they have to answer while placing their hand on lie detector. This part is also very fun to watch.
Hwang In Yeop literary keeps the atmosphere more vibing with their his statements. And yes he is actual 18again person.

Romantic Banter of leads

●FIRST IMPRESSION
2022 had given lots of law drama, so I was skeptical to watch because I had watched so many law-themed dramas in years, leaving aside the ones released this year. But still, I gave a shot for Lee Seung Gi, he is my faith and I was right after 2episodes I was hooked.

●PLOT VIEW
It has the usual pot of good lawyers catching the criminals, but what is so good about this drama is the chemistry of the leads. They have known each other for years and crossing each other after a long time, sparks the feelings that were hidden.
The cases were a bit extraordinary and how the young lawyers YuRi and JungHo resolved them was different, so they didn’t go to court often.
These minor cases lead them to clear out the past and unmask the rich people who caused them pain.
criminals were miserable so they made others miserable, I don’t pity them cause the way they hurt others for greed was unforgivable. More than criminals they felt like jokers.
The story is well written and gets uncovered in bits to keep the curiosity, and so it helps in clearing out the presumptions of the leads they had made. The pacing is slowed in the latter half.

●ACTING/CAST
Lee Se Young as Kim YuRi was badass, hot-tempered, crazy, sexy cool. I just loved her, because of the times she shouted at the moments when one should shout and don’t remain mute. She was strong and wasn’t afraid to fight anytime anywhere. She was so sassy inside out, and lastly, she was a fashionista, I loved her clothes.
Lee Seung Gi as Kim JungHo was genius yet calm but he suddenly has a soul awakening and that was so exciting to see. Seung Gi getting crazy was so fun. The action while chasing baddies was delicious. He sported tracksuit so much looking damn hot.

●MUSIC
A. More Than Me- by June is upbeat and sweet, felt like tapping my feet every time I heard this. I loved the drum arrangements of the song.
B.I am in love with you-by DVWN is had soft vocals with soft guitar tones. This song felt like seeing steam rise up from hot coffee on a cold winter day.

●REWATCH
I would watch the romance for they were just so perfect.

●APPRECIATION
Even though it didn’t have a fresh story it managed to stand out because the actors made this series so enjoyable.
I want to applaud the art director for giving beautiful background.
Also, the stylist of the lead actors, felt they were off for a fashion show every time.

●FAV SCENE
The rain sequence in ep 3, didn’t have much significance but it was visually aesthetic.

●AFTERTHOUGHT
Because of this sizzling chemistry, it reminds me of other dramas.
School time vibed Our Beloved Summer
The badass couple felt like Lawless Lawyer
The cases of the drama remind me of Extraordinary Attorney Woo

●WATCH
If you like a light heartwarming drama with law themes.
Light crime with action
Romance with unending banters.

For Action lovers only

The story is what is just written in a synopsis, with an ample amount of action. So if you want a more deep story of character growth and bonding please just avoid watching this movie and bash it later.

It serves an audience who loves action, and we all know Jang Hyuk doing action sequences, killing the baddies, and firing guns as if in a war is a treat to watch. Not much for acting but he really put a lot of effort on action, as viewers we know that action requires more physical strength.

Since I like watching JangHyuk's works, this was an OK movie for me but I enjoyed it.

lightweight, humor with touch of retro action

A wine bottle from 1988, I know the taste is good. I wouldn't mind sipping it again someday. It's a light humor action movie that gives the audience an escape to feel the retro fast and furious in 80’s style.

The story had nothing special to offer, few youngsters who dream to live big get entangled between prosecutors and villains, trying to save themselves from both. Riding on modified fast cars, and wearing 80’s fashion on the Olympic opening day is the chosen for the movie climax D-day, and that's the reason for the movie title as SEOUL VIBE.
It isn't super complicated but within the first half one can probably guess what's gonna happen next. Although the story is not fresh its stellar cast which performed outstandingly without a doubt wouldn't let anyone down for watching the movie. They kept me entertained from beginning to end with pro acting and semi-humor.

The Chicago Typewriter duo reunion of Yoo Ah In and Go Kyung Pyo in one frame reminds me of TCT as if am rewatching the drama again. The fake gold chain is super funny on both of them. They are both amazing and YAI never disappoints its viewers, he always had the depth of the character he portrays. He is leading the team and drove like he is fast and furious.
GKP gave its usual pleasant and easygoing performance.
Ong Seung Wu had a messy curly hairstyle portraying the youngest of the team. His small and thin build added the necessity of the youngest and loving member. I loved seeing him because he lit up the screen with humor.
Park Ju Hyun, rode the bike like a pro. She had a good wardrobe of the ’80s and I loved her to see in that crop tops which enhanced her long hairstyle.

The 1988 Olympics of Seoul is just a time taken to intensify the fashion, funk, racing cars, and color palette of the movie which serves its purpose. Because it picks up the viewers and takes them on the nostalgic, retro ride of the 80s.

If anyone wants a deep story, with lots of action this isn't the one for you. Because its story is weak and has mild action. But yes it has amazing car chasing sequences, which are thrilling to watch.
