This drama is one of my personal favorites because despite the heavy drama on the plot itself, it managed to deliver the message to the viewers in a light and not so draggy way. It was actually kind of realistic compared to most dramas. I personally commend on how the characters are developed like real persons and not that in a fictional drama. Emotions were depicted as how a real person would feel it, definitely not exaggerated. It showed life's uncertainties and the reality that people, most of the time, don't know what to do when faced with adversities. It was also straight to the point and didn't include unnecessary drama and it has subtlety. I honestly admire all its aspects: the cast, story line, soundtrack and even cinematography and I hope that more dramas could have this high quality.

Blue Salt/Hindsight portrays people who are searching for happiness. For this longing to be felt by the viewers, I believe that this has become a great movie. I admire the relationship between the two main characters especially their lack of words yet total understanding of each other. The actors are really into their characters, even the supporting actors were commendable. The pace is neither fast or slow, but just right to get indulge to the flow of the story. It is also refreshing to see a "gangster" movie with less action and more feelings.

Though not boasting of a unique storyline, this movie definitely has a lot to offer. Won Bin played a mysterious man, definitely a character telling you there's more to him than what you actually see. The little kid, definitely a character that gets in to trouble. I think the best thing that kept the movie at top is the high-class acting by the whole cast. There is 'realistic' action in the movie, not the type where the character goes flying everywhere unscratched and a reasonable mix of gruesomeness on the sides. This is a movie that's hard to miss.

This drama is a big disappointment. Though I didn't have doubts that it can't surpass the first season's success, I didn't expect Dream High 2 to be at this level.
The story might have been well-grounded since it looked into the realistic bitter side of artists, which is really promising. I think the disappointment was also because I expected too much on the first episodes thinking that it can hold onto a potentially great story line, which obviously didn't materialize.
Halfway, it became a love story where you'll be amused and annoyed in guessing who the hell ends up with who. The "dream theme" is slowly vanishing. The "super idol" thing going on is rather dragging rather than exciting.
I felt the casting was a waste since they weren't able to shine in their respective characters. Their skills on stage are unquestionably exceptional yet weren't brought to the spotlight properly. Their acting was acceptable, I guess since it's not awkward to watch.
One more thing is that the drama doesn't have anything to keep it together. I actually tried skipping an episode and felt that I didn't miss anything, though I eventually watched it anyway.
One scene that gave me hope for this drama was Jin Yu Jin's dancing. It's a must watch! The dance, I mean.

This drama breaks the Japanese trend for detective dramas and other heavy plot dramas, since romance themed jdoramas only come once in a while. The cast are perfect to their roles, Oguri Shun as the indifferent computer genius and Ishihara Satomi as the typical nerdy clumsy girl. Aibu Saki is a bit underrated for her role, but still displayed great acting. The two leads have brilliant chemistry, and though the rich man, poor woman theme is almost a cliché, this drama had a breakthrough by making the characters grow by not standing by the extremes, meaning the guy doesn’t need to be the richest in the planet, and the damsel in distress need not be the poorest girl alive. It is a breather for the usual issue of social status, and it focused on the change they have to go through because of love. The subtle comedies, exceptional characters and a heart fluttering kiss scene make this drama not something you dare to miss.

Live Actions either surpass or disappoint their originating works. I believe that this movie actually surpassed my expectations. I pretty much liked how George is kinder and softer than in the anime. And most importantly, I loved the ending of this than the anime's. It was also commendable that there were no substantially missing parts in the movie unlike other adaptations which are literally stuffed, that though you hadn't watched the anime, you could still comprehend the story completely.

I think the story is too shallow and the characters are too rigid. It could have been better off as a sit-com or the like since there are scenarios capable of good laughs. Indeed, the actors are great but even their great acting didn't compensate for the mediocrity. The drama didn't offer something more than the superficial.

The Good The Bad The Weird. Even the title offers thrice the thrill. This is an all-star movie that you wouldn't want to miss. (Sounds like I'm promoting it or something but this movie really deserves more than a 10!)

The actors are undoubtedly great. Everything is set perfectly. The locations, costumes and everything else... You got nothing else to look for. So watch it now!

Boku To Star No 99 Nichi is a typical drama of a 'least likely to fall in love' couple, with encompassing themes such as "love conquers all" and all that drama. I was kind of expecting something different despite the cliched plot since it was notably a Japanese-Korean drama, and it was Kim Tae Hee who's starring, one of my faves. Their characters are too superficial and too much defined, that anyone could have guessed the whole story if they watch halfway. This drama is just too ordinary, I guess.

If I judged right, this is somehow a silent movie. And silent movies aren't exactly my cup of tea. There were too many unnecessary scenes. It was too tragic. At least the acting was great. I felt the guy's emotions but I was kind of wondering how an unconditional love was developed in him. I sympathize with the girl and her overly dramatic life. I pity the guy's best friend. This movie failed to make an impact.

This drama is rather disappointing as this is starred by top actors yet failed to use that advantage. The story is rather repetitive and the only thing that kept me going are the mystery cases and not the main story itself. The premise, that is: a butler is rude/sadistic to her spoiled ojou-sama, could have opened a lot more side stories and conflicts which could have perked up the drama. It is really a good thing that this is mystery drama, otherwise, I really don't know what I'll say.

The story is fresh and interesting, enough to say it's a drama I have yet to see anywhere else. The characters are lovable especially the idiotic and naive (and really beautiful) Serina and the comedic Jinnai. It was a drama that kept me wanting to know more about the characters, and it was granted as the drama portrayed even the stories of supporting characters. Every 45-minute episode is worth watching because it is not easy to guess what will happen next, unlike in other dramas. I also believe it doesn't fit the detective/mystery genre, since the story focused on the transformation of Serina to a strong and beautiful woman (as what the introduction in every episode says). This is a heartwarming drama, at times heartbreaking, which will keep you loving it until the last scene.

This movie is genius.
I actually have nothing more to say since I can't even express in words how much I love, adore, praise this masterpiece.

This movie left a deep impact on me because at a certain point, my conviction as to who is right is questioned. I think that it exposed the bitter reality of the world in a way that people can understand.

Well, I didn't mind the music that much but I guess it just had to be a perfect 10.^^

This movie is extremely hilarious! There were scenes which I seriously can't get over with and had to replay a couple of times. The two mains' chemistry was surprisingly good and their characters are well-matched. I find the actress' voice really funny and Lee Dong Wook actually pulled off the action parts quite well. Although a lot of scenes were forcibly coincidences, you'll let it off since it is really compensated by fun and great acting. This movie is what you call comedy!

Hitsudan Hostess being a true story is a well enough reason for it to be a must see. Kitagawa Keiko matches the role quite impressively. There is good transition and the feelings easily reaches viewers. It is somehow in part a documentary because the real person appeared herself. Needless to say, it is an inspiring story of an amazing person who finally obtained and reached her dream. Watch it and let the story speak for itself.
