I wished for a good drama, and this delivered in an unexpected way

Just finished watching it and will definitely rewatch it again. Yes, it was THAT satisfying. By the end, even though there were still unlikeable characters, they were at the very least understandable. I also felt that the songs used to propel the drama forward were appropriate for the scenes where they were used. My favorites were Someday, Dream us, and Night and day.

This drama was not perfect by any means. There were some things that were irrational if you examine them closely but then again if you do, then it will lose the emotional edge. Since the drama gave a balanced reality and fantasy I felt it deserved a perfect rating.

To be honest, I only watched this after about half of the series had already aired because I thought a story of an "old" singer would be boring. But since I really liked Park Eunbin in her earlier works, I gave this a go and ended up chasing the drama.

This is about Seo Mokha. Accompanied by her friend, Kiho, she set out to audition for Roo Ranjoo, her favorite singer. Unfortunately, she got separated from him and was stranded on a deserted island for 15 years before she was finally rescued. Can she meet Kiho again? Can she still go after her dream when so much time has passed?

The kids that played Mokha and Kiho nailed their roles. They seemed vulnerable yet resolute. I look forward to their future projects. The side characters and their stories were also a nice touch. I also liked the 'who is Kiho' mystery though it was pretty obvious. The Kiho reveal and their reunion was one of the show's highlights for me. The girl bonding between Mokha and Ranjoo was also good. I think there were 2 castaway divas in this story, one was Mokha who was physically stranded and the other was Ranjoo who was emotionally cast away. Both became overcomers.

Just a touch of caution, this tackled domestic abuse. Also, there may be times that you can see Extraordinary Woo Young Woo since Eunbin is playing a society awkward person. If those are non-issues for you then I definitely recommend watching this drama.

Interesting premise but nonsensical development

As a drama about a nontraditional heroine who still gets a traditional prince charming in the end, I wanted to like this. I really did. Her appearance were anything but what is expected of a heroine. She was at first considered unattractive by her husband, the emperor, but through the course of the drama, he learned to love her, become independent, be a better man, be a better king.

I was glad that the FL is chubby while the ML was dreamy. That he ignored the traditional beauty SFL but can't help falling for the FL's personality. The leads chemistry is subtle but it's there. I can't choose a more handsome ML than Li Hongyi. He portrayed a believable slow but reluctant attraction for the FL. You can feel his confusion about his feelings but you can see that he's slowly falling in love. When he's jealous, you can immediately feel it just by changes in his eyes. Jackie as the FL was also a good choice to be a strong female lead. That she loved the ML at first, lost her love for him, then loved him again because she now knew him felt organic.

The acting was not a problem. I blame the script for my disappointment. As a romcom, it was funny in some instances but mostly the jokes felt flat. Most of the time I felt like the FL and her father were pushing the court to accept her. In other dramas, the FL's antics would have surely landed her in jail, but she was always tolerated because her father essentially holds the power more than the emperor. She frequently used the palace's PA system to air her displeasure for the emperor or to show off her talents.

I admit that I quite enjoyed the first few episodes and I tried to gave it a chance but show keeps trying to make me accept character reactions that made no sense. The emperor had diarrhae because of her cooking but she got away scot free? I think it was when she taught a Bollywood like dance and people supposedly enjoyed it that I gave up on understanding this drama.

The SML also did not help. He was not swoon worthy enough to sway my heart. I found him whiny most of the time and he kept on preening like a peacock.

Aside from the leads, I liked the grand chancellor, his villain-not a villain stance gave this drama it's unpredictability.

All in all, this is a good enough drama, the kisses and longing looks were fluttery. Just be prepared to throw away your common sense and accept events as they are.

Love is a choice, not just hormones

I know some people were disappointed in the endgame of this drama. Most of them wanted a Jojo x SunOh reconciliation. But from season 1, I've always felt that being with SunOh was toxic to Jojo and Hyeyeong or even her original boyfriend will be a better match for her.

This is not really a spoiler because it all happened in S1 but you may skip this paragraph because I'm about to rant. What people don't seem to realize was that in S1, SunOh only approached Jojo because he wants to show Hyeyeong that he can get the girl his best friend was crushing on. He's a childish man who had almost everything handed to him in a platter. His mom is an actress, his dad a politician, a supposedly 'perfect' family. His only complaint is his mother does not love him. He looked to Hyeyeong to fill his need for affection. He can never support Jojo emotionally because he's so damaged and wants to keep affirming people's love for him. He was at first jealous of Jojo because she took Hyeyeong's attention from him. He was just testing how much Hyeyeong was willing to give up for him. Then he started an almost stalker behavior. If it was an average looking man, what he did would be scary not sweet. And he kissed her knowing she has a boyfriend? This guy's moral compass was very wrong. To top it off, he somehow made her feel pitiful when he paid for her lunch money and he made her a target of hate but was not able to protect her from his 'fans'. And he was so obsessively clingy, first to Hyeyeong then to Jojo. Okay, maybe Jojo was wrong by installing the shield but what ticks me is that he didn't even support her anymore once she stopped ringing his love alarm, he just felt sorry for himself.

Some people can't seem to find a reason why SunOh and Jojo broke up but it's very simple. Being with SunOh in HS only made her feel small. His fans kept saying she should just die. She felt unworthy to be alive all over again. Yes, he kept ringing her alarm, a telltale sign he still loves/wants her, but he never ever became someone she really needed, someone she can rely on to stand by her no matter what, someone who really respects her and her boundaries. What's funny is that in HS, SunOh kept saying it's Jojo's choice who will be with her and she is not a thing but became angry when the choice wasn't him.

So I think you can guess that I never really rooted for SunOh despite liking their cutesy dates and fluffy kisses. I liked the boyfriend better because even after they broke up, he still cared about Jojo. Hyeyeong was the best match for Jojo because he was emotionally stable and he doesn't even have the 'perfect' life. He has a 'criminal's son' tag for goodness sakes. But he was just always there for her when she needed him. Even when Jojo disappeared from people who might love him, he still rang her alarm 10 times.

Unlike with SunOh, Hyeyeong and Jojo's love may not be instant attraction from both sides. But it is a love that's built on respect and support, a love you want to keep. I really like what Jojo said to SunOh when he found out about the shield "You made me install the shield but Hyeyeong made me want to remove it". It was Hyeyeong who made her feel worthy of being alive.

Some says that it was not fair that SunOh settled for Yukjoo, but for me she was exactly what he needed. Someone who will constantly give him affection.

I couldn't give a perfect rating because I didn't like the other characters. I really couldn't relate to Gulmi, her mom, Brian and DukGu. They felt like plot devices, their characters were not really fleshed out. If it was only about the love triangle arc, I would have rated this 10/10. The underlying theme is love is a choice, choose to live, choose to love.

A story on fighting for your dream

This gave me a very bad first impression that I almost dropped it. The second hand embarrassment I felt for Tong Nian as she kind of stalked Han Shangyan in the first few episodes was just too much. After Episode 4, it got better. I did not really like the main romance because I felt that Tong Nian was too submissive. It's good thing that he never really took advantage of her. Grandpa was their matchmaker, without him they would not get together or get back with each other. The second CP of Mi and Yaya made up for the sweetness I was looking for in this show.

More than the romance, the journey of team solo as they fight for country pride either as individuals or as a group was the main essence of this show.

My favorite romcom of all time, not just 2024

This has fluffy romance, comedy aplenty and a lot of heart. I can't believe that within 10 minutes into the drama, I was already crying with Im Sol. Kim Hye Yoon delivered such a great performance in the first episode that before it ended I was hooked.

The story is about Im Sol (Hye Yoon) who was about to give up on life after an accident. Because of the encouragement she got from an idol Ryu Sun Jae (Woon Seok), she decided to live. For more than 10 years, she supported Sun Jae as a fan and was very shocked when news came out that Sun Jae died from apparent suicide. A mystic occurrence brought her back in time when both she and Sun Jae were still in high school. Can she stop Sun Jae's death? Was it really a suicide?

Only 2 episodes are out but I am already enjoying this drama. In fact, the last few minutes of Episode 2 had me silently screaming with excitement. Scenes that may seem cringey on paper turned out lovely and sweet because of the music used and the chemistry between Hye Yoon and Woon Seok. And then there's also Geon Hee who's playing the second lead. He also looks good with Hye Yoon. But I'm still team Sun Jae. The scriptwriters so far made somewhat believable scenarios (yeah, I will also run/get scared when a person seems crazy). I am looking forward for the next episodes.

Edit:
I am now at episode 7 and this just keeps getting better so I'm changing my review score from 9.5 to 10. This deserves it for making me look forward to Mondays even though it's the start of my work week. Now I'm not just on the Sunjae-Sol ship but also on the Woo soek-Hye yoon ship too. These two are really lovely together.

Edit 2:
After completion, this has become my standard for a romcom and has become my favorite drama of all time. I would rate it more than 10 if I could. I love all the OSTs, they are used at the right timing throughout the drama even the BGMs. This also has the best pacing among all the dramas I've seen with the focus mostly on the leads. Its romance is satisfying and was not stingy at all with the kiss scenes unlike usual kdramas. Its comedy despite a few misses are ones that remain funny even after a few rewatches. Its logic as a time travel drama made sense and was not messy at all. I know I'll rewatch this just for the comfort it brings. There was a time in Ep13 that this drama broke my heart but immediately fixed it again in the next episode. Parallelism and easter eggs are spread throughout the entire drama which makes you want to rewatch. It shows you again and again that the leads are made for each other. I'm so glad that I chased this because I was able to discuss theories and ship the lead couple with fellow capellas (eclipse fandom) and subeoms (solseon fandom)

Beautiful artwork, epic love story. Best xianxia of 2022

To start off, the artworks in this drama is the best I've seen so far. You can see that a lot of thought was put into designing the drawings and the scene settings. The costumes in the 3 realms are so distinct, white for the fairy realm, mostly black for the moon tribe and reddish tints for the mortal world.

The music is also amazing. My favorite is 'I still remember that day' which played when DongFang QingCang (ML) asked Changheng (SML) to choose whether he'll save Orchid (FL) or the fairy realm. It's just full of regret. The OSTs of this drama is now part of my regular playlist and might stay there for a little long time. I'm still trying to find the haunting flute song.

On the acting, I love Esther Yu and Dylan Wang as Orchid and DFQC. They are perfect for the roles and I am totally aboard their ship. I have to give Esther some credit because I felt Orchid was annoying in the beginning but she made me love her. She may have a weak body but she's smart, caring and loyal. Dylan just shines as DFQC. I really loved how he transitioned from a person who has no feelings to a person who feels very deeply. Dylan had so many microexpressions that I never thought he can actually have. He proved his naysayers wrong in this drama by showing he can really act. I also loved it whenever he shows off his badass powers. All I can say is that both actors deserve awards for this drama. Esther completely charmed me and I still can't get over Dylan's pleading eyes. And their kisses, wow the kisses are the most believeable kisses I've seen. Each of the kisses is needed in light of the storytelling and not just for fan service. When they have accidental kisses, both actors mouths were closed. When it's a forced kiss, the one who's forcing the kiss looks more passionate while the other looks unwilling. When it's a lovers' kiss, even though they don't really look like they're french kissing, both looks like they're into it. Their reactions after the kisses are also consistent with their characters at that particular parts of the drama.

Another great revelation was Zhang Ling He as ChangHeng. The microexpressions of this guy is at par with Dylan. As the God of War in the fairy realm, he is great in his own right and deserves someone who is also great. He is the kind of SML you also want to root for but just can't because you know the ML is really the best choice for the FL. I really love his backstory and character development. If only I can split Orchid into two so both guys can be with her. But alas there's only one Orchid and she can only belong to DFQC.

On the story itself, it's just obvious how much work was done to the script. The storytelling may not be perfect but it was very good. What you think is just some dialogue in one scene can turn out to be very significant later. The characters' actions were consistent and logical. The support characters like Sangque, Jieli, Dayin, Ronghao, Chidi, Xunfeng, etc were given ample time to also have character development, but not too much, meaning they did not overpower the main story. I also did not hate any character, well okay I strongly disliked Yunzong, but maybe he was needed as someone really ancient to explain some things. The ending, though good, wasn't quite enough. An epilogue or an additional episode would probably make this perfect.

I have to admit that I still can't let go and want to see these actors in new dramas. I want Charles Lin and Hong Xiao to have their own drama, Esther and Dylan to have a modern drama and even if I'm a Dixin shipper, I still want a Zhang Ling He and Esther drama. But for now, I guess I'll just have to be content in rewatching this drama.

Messy, confusing and boring

I kept waiting for fireworks and it never came. This has the most disjointed storytelling I've ever watched. There were a lot of storylines that did not seem to be connected to each other at all. It might be better if this was separated into mini dramas instead of being presented together.

Lee Hsin Ai as Weiwei and Ma Kui as Ling Xiao did not feel like leads, I just guessed they were because the story started with their meet cute. Then this was followed by the meet cute with the second male lead Zhang Yunlong (aka Leon Zhang) as Zhao Zennan. All this were done with cliches that made Weiwei look stupid and clumsy. I kept watching hoping to see some chemistry between any of the leads. When I finally felt some chemistry between Weiwei and Zennan in Ep 7, she then goes to have a relationship with Ling Xiao because of a doll when they didn't seem to click at all! Until the last episode, I was not convinced that Ling Xiao and Weiwei was endgame since they don't feel like they were lovers even when they were hugging, while Zennan and Weiwei had sparks just by staring at each other. Maybe this was because Leon Zhang just looks really cute and sexy when he's being flirty while Ma Kui acts like wood most of the time. Also I felt like Ling Xiao was a weak character because he has a hard time saying no (except maybe to his parents). Imagine a boyfriend who rejects his girlfriend's offer to go to the movies but instead agrees to go with girl who obviously has a crush on him and be her hugging post just to apologize! Then buys roses for that same girl just because a vendor urged him. I would really have to be very understanding to let that go.

The only satisfying relationship arc is with the director Shikai and tomboyish Ning Yu.

Then the drama unexpectedly hits you with a revenge plot with the hidden villain trying to takeover the ML and the SML's family businesses. Though slightly interesting, I wondered why they did not report the villain for stock manipulation.

Characters had inconsistent setup. For example, Ning Xue felt it was ok that she chose another guy over the director but was angry when she found out her sister and the director were dating, even saying her sister stole her boyfriend. Zennan was the overbearing CEO to Weiwei then he suddenly became nicer without reason. Ling Xiao's mom said that Weiwei has inferior breeding and should not be allowed to be with her son when she herself married the family driver.

So while there were some good acting (i.e. Leon Zhang) here and there, most were boring (i.e. Ma Kui) and the script was obviously bad. This made the drama so unfocused that you easily lose interest in characters and it resulted into a mess.

Aww, another wonderful youth drama

I only watched this because of Zhang Ling He because of his wonderful performance in 'Love between fairy and devil' and found another good drama.

Like other youth dramas, it uses the cold straight A student ML who loves a warm but not studious FL trope. Its notable difference in other youth dramas is the depiction of a differently abled person as an ML. So Jianghao's coldness is understandable. It came from his insecurities of having a father that is no good and having an artificial leg. He only trusts Lu Miao because as she's his childhood friend/almost sibling who never judged him. I loved how the drama showed that being differently abled has some advantages and was not a disadvantage to love at all. Another thing I learned was 5211314 is another way of saying 'I love you forever' because it sounds like "wu er yi" = "wo ai ni".

Too long but still a gem

I immediately fell in love with this gem of a drama and if asked I'll rename this as 'The Bandit who Loved Me'. I've been on their ship from episode 1.
If it's just the two of them I would probably have rated this a 10/10. The fact that there was no big misunderstanding between them for all 40 episodes makes me love it more. The main goal of the drama seems to be equality for all.

The FL was a timid little mouse because she's a concubine's daughter. But being with the ML even just for a night made her stand up for herself. I liked that she wasn't truly scared of the ML even when she knows he's a bandit. She was even amazed by him during his battle with the scholars. As the story goes on, with his love, she began to have a backbone and became confident that she deserved to be loved.

The ML was too good to be real. His talents and leadership skill just can't be hidden. His back story was so heart wrenching and his efforts to move forward was amazing. Of course the tenderhearted FL can't do anything but feel moved. I'm glad that he loved the FL so much that he can even let go of revenge. In a sense, she tempers him. And he had a lot of patience. Imagine they were married but not really lived as husband and wife until about 2 years after. But still there were a lot of sweet scenes in between.

My favorite character in this whole series aside from the leads is actually the little emperor. He was just too cute reciting all those mature lines in his obviously childish voice.

I think a lot of people will also love this drama.

Aside from SoMun getting hotter, a lot could be better

Halfway through and I still don't feel as attached as I did in season 1. I expected a fleshing out of characters by this time, but they still haven't even shown the main villains' back story and how they ended up together. In S1, I saw how the characters grew. So Mun getting more powerful, Hana, Motak and Mae-ok becoming more at peace with their past, So Mun's friends overcoming bullying, CheongSin becoming evil to please his "father" and so on. But in S2, I didn't see any character growth at all, even with the new counter. As for Ma Juseok, the main focus of this season's hullabaloo, his becoming evil just doesn't flow smoothly as it did with CheongSin, I don't feel his conflict as a good person with the evil spirit within him. If the story don't improve by the next episode, I will surely drop this.

Intelligent, fast-paced, best modern drama of 2022

This is a time loop drama done right. It's cohesive and coherent. I've watched when it aired in Jan 2022 and rewatched it again to see if it was as good as I remembered. And it still is. And it's just 15 episodes which is very short compared with other Cdramas so it is a good introduction piece for those who are used to watching Kdramas.

Time loops like Groundhog Day tend to bore me because they repeatedly show the protagonist doing the same things over and over again. They also tend to be so inconsistent that I usually regret watching them in the first place. So it was really mind-blowing (pun intended haha) how much I enjoyed Reset.

Never once did I feel that this drama insulted my intelligence. The leads' growth and their romance (which was a bonus) were gradual and logical. The police and other passengers' reactions seems like they were experiencing the explosion each time for the first time.

There's even a reason for the loop. This is not really a spoiler because it's a dialogue in Ep 2 but you can just skip this paragraph if you want. When a person dies unjustly, he goes into a loop of that day unless he can find a person to replace him. I did not understand this dialogue until I have actually finished the series.

Also, unlike other dramas, it's not open-ended at all giving me a satisfying closure.

Inferior than SOOD but still worth a watch

I was so excited when they announced this adaptation of Someday or One day because I truly loved the OG.

I kept asking myself if I hadn't loved SOOD so much, would I have watched this? Sadly, the answer is no. This didn't hook me from the first episode like SOOD did. ATCY muted the grief that future girl felt when she lost her fiancee which was what got me. The OST for time travel also wasn't as memorable. The leads didn't feel like high school students. The homeless man look of old Nam Siyeon was unnecessary. Still, I am glad they didn't ruin the story.

If you just want to watch something to pass the time or just know the story, I would still recommend this. But for a rewatch, I would still return to the OG.

Uuuhhhmm, what was that?

I had high hopes for this, too bad it failed miserably. It was long and boring. I kept watching because I know the leads could do better. I've seen their separate works where I liked them. Sadly together, they just had no chemistry. Even the tropes could not saved this and yes there were a lot of tropes, amnesia, long lost son, fake deaths, obsessive ex and many more. Instead of developing a believable OTP, most of the story was vested on helping the guests of the near to bankruptcy hotel resolve their problems. And so, even when the leads finally became a couple, it felt forced. They also had many misunderstandings that could have resolved if they trusted and confided in each other.

Weird love triangle

This probably has the worst FL I've ever seen. She made me so frustrated, falling in love too easily. Then she kept switching her shallow love between the cousins, letting one cousin console her when the other broke her heart, then she'll fall in love with that cousin and get brokenhearted all over again. I was not convinced with her final choice because she probably will like the other cousin again. The two boys are teases, they make a girl fall in love then drop her midway. If you just want longing looks, quick flutters, accidental kisses, yes this drama has that. But for story depth and character development, go look somewhere else.

Good story, horrible editing

I was hesitant at first to watch this drama because 55 episodes is pretty daunting. But I was glad I gave it a chance.

I loved how unpredictable this drama was. There were a lot of things and arcs that I did not expect. Most characters were very well developed, with motivations pretty much understood. The actors had chemistry. The scenes gave the other worldly vibe that this xanxia needed. The music was good enough. Overall this should have been one of those great epic dramas. But and there's a big BUT, it suffered from bad editing. There were inset scenes before the opening song that you might not understand but still need to watch because sometimes these were key scenes that should have been placed in the middle of the episodes. I was often disoriented because I felt some scenes were missing. Sometimes you will think that a scene is happening when in reality it only happens in a character's subconsciousness. Also, there were some inconsistencies in the lighting and sometimes confused me whether it was a daytime or a night time scene. This really affected the flow of the story. But still it is understandable enough.

ZaYao and ChenLan had swapped places in a typical romance. ZaYao is the cold, disillusioned antiheroine who was changed by the gentle love of ChenLan. It was really amazing to see how ChenLan's eyes becomes adoring everytime he remembers ZaYao. And then there's JiangMu, he's actually my favorite character in this whole drama. I didn't expect it because he was a very deplorable character at the start of the drama. But his development was amazing. I had tears in my ears when he was was giving ZaYao his sword before that last battle.

There were a lot of unexpected deaths in this drama that you will wish did not happen but I guess that's just the reality in the pugilistic world.
