Wow, this is one of the best dramas I have seen in a while.
The plot may seem simple, but do not let it fool you! You will be in for a good watch!
The drama touches into deeper aspects of life, and how one should continuously strive for their dreams no matter how impossible it may seem. This drama teaches the audience the importance of working hard for one's success and even if you don't reach your dream goals, you may be able to help others and guide them to the path that will help reach their goals.

While some people are against student-teacher relationships, Junko is very careful in this drama to not be in a relationship with her students while they are her students, so you do not have to worry about that. She does not break any laws or rules here because she is not in any relationship with her students while teaching them. The chemistry between Yuri and Junko is absolutely wonderful, and Yuri is super mature for his age. I would even say he's even more mature than Junko herself and even as mature as the other male competitors in this drama. The character development for Yuri is amazing, and we can really see how much he has grown as a person mentally.

Watching this drama, you can't help but rethink about your own life and values. Just because I didn't reach my dream, should I give up? Is it worth helping others reach the same dream that I myself couldn't do? Do I have confidence in helping others succeed when I myself did not in the past? These are some of the questions that come to mind when I watched this show, and it really made me think about my future.

Overall, I loved both the plot and romance of this drama, and this is must watch if you want something light or fun to watch while still having a deeper story behind it all :)

I never thought that I would end up liking this drama. I actually really liked season 1. And ended up marathoning through season 2 as well! Finished both seasons in one day! I know, I know... crazy right?
This show is full of randomness and over dramatic scenes, but that's what makes it so entertaining for me! Overall, this a worth a watch! Make sure to watch the first season as well!

STORY-7, Nothing that special to the story. It's just about a couple and how they spend their time together, loving each other and thinking about taking their relationship a bit further. But it's really cute. I really like seeing Arata and Nika together. Renn and Mariya have such great chemistry! TO be honest, they have better chemistry in this season than season 1. Probably because they feel more comfortable now since they've already worked together. This show is stuffed with funny, romantic moments... random moments.. not any twists or trouble happening here.. but that's what makes it fun for me to watch! I've been watching dark dramas lately, so I decided to see a romantic comedy. I ended up loving this so much!

ACING/CAST-8. The acting from Renn and Mariya improved a lot. I can feel them getting much closer. I liked their chemistry in season 1, but I feel they have better chemistry in this season. The supporting characters did a great job as well.

REWATCH VALUE-7. I might re-watch this whenever I finish a depressing drama... Haha, I mostly likely will get a bit bored though.

Trust me, try this drama! You might end up liking this as much as I did!

WOW, what a phenomenal drama! Please watch this if you have the time to! It is simply AMAZING!
The story is super intriguing. Just imagine being able to go back in time over and over again to change your life to the
"perfect" life that you want to live. I wish this was reality sometimes! Our main characters, Saiko and Otaro, have such
great character development throughout this drama. We see them grow as individuals, and we see them improve on
themselves by the end of the drama.

Each character has flaws in this drama, and we get to see how their flaws affect their endings and the flow of the story.
I can't really be specific because I don't want to post spoilers, but this drama is SIMPLY AMAZING! The characters are
all intriguing, and I love everyone of them, even the "evil" ones!

For anyone who is skeptical on watching because of what they might have heard about the ending, do not worry! It's not
bad at all in my opinion. Just watch and you will see! And make sure to watch episode 10 of Todome no Parallel for a complete
ending as well!

All in all, a very interesting story that keeps you at the edge of your feet with really good characters that you will fall in love
with by the end of it. And bonus, this drama has AMAZING music! PLEASE WATCH! Easily one of my favorite dramas of all time!

[*My first time writing a review. Sorry, it might not be good :/]
Gosh, where should I start? I really didn't expect myself to like this horror movie. It wasn't so scary, but the story really moved me. I cried buckets at the ending! :'(

Story: Wonderful. The story was not the best, but very wonderful. It's a bit scary at times, but the overall story really moves you.

Acting/Cast : Love Park Min Young's acting in here. I could see her expressing every of her line very well. The acting was quite good overall.

Overall, it is a good movie to watch. If you're into one of those VERY scary horror films, this one isn't for you. But if you're not into super scary movies, and you want a horror movie with a good story line, I recommend this! ^^

This is hands down my favorite Chinese drama, and possibly my favorite drama of all time as of now. I have heard many things about Mo Dao Zu Shi before the drama even aired. I've ran across trailers and clips of the animation, and I have heard about both the novel and Manhua, but I never actually ended up watching it. I only saw a few trailers, but I never had the time to pick it up until now. The live action version is the first adaptation that I picked up, and let me tell you, I was not disappointed. This is probably the best decision of my life, deciding to watch this drama this summer.

As a fan of BL dramas, I was a bit disappointed that they had to take out a lot of romantic and skinship scenes from the original novel between Lan Zhan and Wei Ying, but I decided to give this drama a go anyways. This drama is PHENOMENAL even without all the BL scenes that I originally was watching this far. On top of depicting the beautiful love and connection between Lan Zhan and Wei Ying, this drama teaches very valuable life lessons. We see themes of betrayal, love, hatred, forgiveness, and regret all throughout this story, and it really touches your heart deeply seeing how so many characters are actually misunderstood and sometimes, there was nothing that they could do to change how others view them and how to make the situation that they're in better. Wei Ying is an extraordinary character who radiates love and forgiveness even after everything that happens to him. He lost so much in his life, but he never lost his love that he has for other people. Even when the world was against him, he stood for what he believed was right, willing to accept any hatred and false accusations against him.

Lan Zhan was also such an amazing character, the total opposite of Wei Ying personality wise, but he was just as righteous and as willing to fight for justice as Wei Ying. The relationship between the two is just out of the world. Even though the censorship didn't allow for romance to be explictly shown between the two, it was just so obvious that they loved one another, especially through their facial expressions and actions towards one another. Actions speak more than words <3 Having a person like Lan Zhan in Wei Ying's life made me so emotional and happy especially after everything that Wei Ying went through: Lan Zhan stuck by his side from the beginning and never betrayed him or swayed to other people's side. Oh how I wish people like Lan Zhan exist more in today's society XD

The OSTs are perfect. I listen to them on repeat! It's been around a week that I've seen this now, and I am still obsessed! I've rewatched this drama at least 4 times now! I've also read the novel twice! Read the audio drama as well <3 This story is just too beautiful to NOT rewatch several adaptations of!

Xiao Zhan is literally the PERFECT person to play Wei Ying. He definitely did justice to this character! Wang Yibo was really good as Lan Zhan as well. The casting this time is amazing! I could not imagine anyone else playing the leads. Plus, their chemistry on and off screen is off the charts <3

This drama is really underrated. Realy worth watching. An interesting plot and an amazing cast.

STORY-8/10. At first, I really did not like how the story went. Like really? A Makai Knight defeats Horrors to protect the humans. Sounds cliche eh? I mean, where else do we see a brave person protecting his people? Also, the horrors that he fights seem so unrealistic! But as the story develops more and gets more into depth, I realize that this is starting to get really good. Each episode has a new plot and story to tell. And before I knew it, I was hooked. I never thought that I would turn out to like this series. Plus, the love story between Kouga and Kaoru. It's one of things that kept me interested.

ACTING/CAST- 8/10. The cast is amazing. I loved every single actor. Even some of the evil characters were portrayed very well. Kouga(Hiroki) is so adorable! He portrayed his role very good. And Kaoru was great as well. I also liked Rei! Ahhh, what an amazing cast! They seem to have great chemistry too!

REWATCH VALUE-7/10. I've rewatched this once already. I skipped a couple of episodes, because I remembered some boring episodes. Haha, but I ended up enjoying rewatching it again. It's a really good drama to be honest.

Overall, this is a good drama. Not great though, but still good. You may think that this drama sounds stupid at first, but it's worth a watch! Try something new for once! Well, have fun!

I was honestly really looking forward to this season because of Miura Haruma, but I just didn't really fall in love with most of the characters as I did in season 1 and season 2.. (especially season 1)

It's really great seeing Gokusen coming back with another season because of its successfulness.. it really was. But seeing the same storyline again for the 3rd time really bored me. Also, I didn't feel the closeness between Yankumi and the 3-D class as in season 1. I just wished there was a plot twist or a new storyline.

Don't get me wrong. I LOVE Yankumi's strong personality and physical strengths.. but I'm tired of seeing her students getting beat up and has to need her help every single episode. I wish that the writers made up something a bit new... like her students try to not get into fights more often or fight back for themselves.

If ONLY I liked the characters here a bit better, I would've given this a 7. But I just didn't really any of the students. Don't get me wrong. I LOVE Miura Haruma, but I seriously dislike his character here. I love Jun's and Kame's characters in seasons 1 and 2 the best. They care about their friends the MOST, and actually have a lot of times that they were calm... unlike many others.

Overall, if you're a fan of this series like I am, you should continue finishing it off... but it might get a bit boring at times. I definitely enjoyed seasons 1 and 2 better ;)

This is my first review on this drama, so please bear with me here!

I know that some people will not agree with what I'm going to say, but I thought this was an outstanding drama. It was NOT perfect, but really good. Sure, the action might not be that superb, but the story kept me interested throughout the whole drama. I especially loved the parent's story. Wol Ryung still loved Seo Hwa even after what she did. Even though kang Chi and Yeo Wool's story isn't as deep, it was still so cute! ^_^

Acting/Cast... Lee Seung Gi is amazing as always! I could feel his emotions and all. Of course Choi Jin hyuk was fabulous too. Suzy's acting truly impressed me. I know some people hate her acting, but she did well here! She carried out her character really good. I thought she couldn't act back in Dream High and I was ready for her to ruin the drama for me, but she was great ! I wish the chemistry between Suzy and Seung Gi is a bit better though..

Story... I really liked the story honestly. It really kept my interest up. But it jumps all over the place sometimes. Kang Chi's goal was to find the Gu Family Book, but because of so many problems occurring, he ended up not. And I didn't like the ending much either....

the Music was absolutely amazing! I love Suzy's Ost "Don't Forget Me" !

There ya go! I really do recommend this drama. My favorite drama of this year so far!

I was reluctant watching this. I didn't know if I should have of shouldn't have. I was afraid of wasting my time since I didn't enjoy the Korean version of this. BUT, I ended up liking this drama, surprisingly. This drama is no where near the ''BEST'', but it's still worth a watch.

STORY-7, I'm sure everybody already knows the story, so I won't bother summarizing it up. Basically it's about a girl who has a one-sided love for a this dude and somehow ended up in his house. To me, the story is kind of stupid and unrealistic. I mean, couldn't her father just rent or buy a new house/apartment? BUT, despite that, I still think that the story is cute. If she moved, then we wouldn't get to see a lot of moments between her and the Naoki. One other thing I liked about this version is that the lead actress didn't annoy me for some reason. I actually really like her. But in the Korean version, omg, the female lead annoyed me a LOT that I almost dropped the drama because of her. Anyways, I like this version better since it's quick paced and simple. Not slow and draggy like the other version.

ACTING/CAST-8, the acting was actually pretty good here. At first, I thought Naoki couldn't act, but that was probably just his character. Honoka Miki was really good as Kotoko. I can't believe she's only 16! I thought she would be around 19 or 20! Oh, and I love the guy who played Kin-chan! He made me like him so much that I wanted Kotoko to end up with him instead. This is the only version where I wanted Kotoko to end up with Kin-chan instead of Naoki!

REWATCH VALUE- 5,I love the chemistry between Yuki and Miki! They're so cute together. I've already seen so many versions of this though. The story is getting old watching it over and over again. So I most likely won't re-watch this!

OVERALL- 7, so overall, this is a good drama. Not very good, or even close to awesome, BUT it is worth a watch. One of the most popular of this year too. I recommend this to people who wants a cold guy ending up falling for a girl who he never once liked. But if you're a person who hates these types of story, then don't watch it.

I never thought that I would actually watch 'Switch Girl' one day. I usually tend to drop these types of dramas or give it a really low rating, but it was different in this case. I'm not gonna lie. There were a lot of over dramatic moments and stupid moments in here, but that's the point! I laughed throughout every single episode. I love the chemistry, the PROPER kisses, the cute moments, & how the friends bonded. This type of drama may not be for you, but you should still give it a try. You might end up liking it like I did :]

STORY-7. Although the story is kind of meaningless and random at A LOT of times, I honestly didn't mind. I smiled and laughed throughout every single episode. It was hilarious. I think it's because I haven't watched a romantic comedy in such a LONG time. I've been watching more dark-action packed dramas.. and watching this really lightened up my mood. Cuteness, cuteness, and CUTENESS everywhere!If you're looking for a drama that can you make you laugh and squealing out of cuteness, this is it guys! You might think that it's stupid, but just give it a try! It won't hurt!

ACTING/CAST 8-The acting wasn't too bad, but it wasn't 'great' either. I LOVE the chemistry between Nika and Arata. I could feel their love. And their kisses were proper too. They don't look like they're uncomfortable together. SO CUTE KAWAII! I feel like the cast is just perfect for this drama. I would not replace anyone else and exchange them for this cast.

RE WATCH VALUE-8, I actually marathoned through BOTH seasons! I couldn't get out of my seat! It's worth re watching as well! I would re watch this after finishing a sad depressing drama and has a sad ending.

I think you guys should give this a try. Who knows, you might end up enjoying it more than you think you would!

**May Contain spoilers**

nothing special or unique about this drama. Like really. It got so slow and boring half way that I wanted to drop it. I actually thought that it would end up being one of my favs. But no.. it only got worse.

STORY-6. Nothing interesting about this story. I don't feel the chemistry been the main characters at all. The love story even faded away at the end. Sun Woo and Nana's relationship never developed either. Just ridiculous. Se Yi should have also broke off ties with Sun Woo so he could have known earlier that she rejects him. He already had a feeling. .. just needed it to be confirmed. This story just got slow and draggy for me. I just like how the friendship was made and how they bonded. And Nana's backup story as well. I wished she got together with Sun Woo. And Se Yi really annoyed me :/

ACTING/CAST-8 I actually like the cast. Not the acting that much, but I love the cast. Da Hee and Ha Yeon Soo are rookies, so their acting wasn't quite good. I like Kang Ha Neuls acting though. Sometimes, I just couldn't feels their emotions. Especially Ha Yeon Soo... Seol Chan was alright. Not too bad.

MUSIC-10 The only thing I loved about this drama us the Music. I love their OSTs.

REWATCH VALUE-4. I would never ever re watch this unless I want to hear good music and see how awesome Nana is over again. This was a waste of my time. Sorry Monstar fans.

I know my rating of a 3 might seem harsh, but I'm just rating ACCORDINGLY to MDl. A 3 is considered ''poor.'' And trust me, this drama deserves AT LEAST a ''poor'' rating. I would've given it a 4, but a 4 means ''decent.'' And this is worse than just ''decent.''

At the beginning, it was slow, but it wasn't that bad. I thought ''hey, maybe this will get better.'' I actually started watching this only for the cast. I miss seeing Yamapi. I haven't watched a romance drama of his for a while, and same with Erika. They're my favorite Japanese actors and I was SO excited to see them onscreen again after a long time, since their other newest dramas didn't seem so intereting... but no, this was a TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT.

First of all, where is the chemistry? I didn't see any chemistry between Yamapi and Karina or even Yamapi x Erika... ? Like, really? I couldn't get into this drama ONCE. Well, maybe sometimes there were some cute scenes and I was fangirling... but there wasn't even that much.

And I thought that this was supposed to be a love triangle... but, I don't know what you would call this... ? It's all mixed up, so confusing. He likes her, and she likes the other, and the other likes another, the ex shows up, it gets complicated... now.. ugh, I don't even know where to end.

All in all, this drama was a WASTE of time for me. I was so disappointed. If you're a fan of the cast, then you might give it a try... but if you're not really a huge fan or Yamapi, Erika, or Karina... just don't even waste your time.

I don't even know where to start... it's been such a LONG time since I've seen a drama as amazing as this one! And I know it really irritates people when reviews are being made when the dramas aren't finish airing yet, but I'm sorry. I can't help it. This drama is superb.

Story-10 , Definitely one of the best story lines in the dramas that I've watched. It made me laugh, jump up for joy, frustrated at times, and even get mad at the leads sometimes! Very unpredictable! I expected for things to happen, but it twisted and went the other way around. I usually don't like romance between an older woman and a younger guy, but it's exceptional here! The story definitely kept me at the edge of my seat throughout the whole episodes!

Acting/Cast-9, The actors portrayed their characters very well. Lee Bo Young annoyed me a bit at first, but she turned out to be really good. Lee Jong Suk is just simply amazing. This is my first drama with him in it, and I fell in love at first sight! He is spectacular for a 23 year old. Yoon Sang Hyun is really good too... but I didn't really payed much attention to him in here xD Plus, the chemistry between Jong Suk & Bo Young is incredible!

Music- 8, the music's pretty good. Some really great OST's there!

Rewatch value- 9, I watched this 3 times already and never got bored once! xD

This is one of the many horror movies that I actually rally enjoyed. I LOVE horror movies, but I haven't been seeing any good ones lately until I came across this. Definitely worth my time.

I didn't want to watch the second movie of ''One Missed Call'' because I honestly did not like the first movie. The characters in there annoyed me to death, and Idk... I liked this one much better than the 1st.

I loved the horror part of this... the twisted ending that I wouldn't have suspected... and even the light romance between the main characters. This movie was scary... but also very touching. The ending made me shed a bucket of tears. It actually kind of taught me something a bit more about love. Haha, I never thought that I would ever say this about a horror movie.

Overall, this is definitely worth watching. If you didn't like the first movie, you should STILL give this second movie a try. It kept me on my toes until the end, and the characters won't be forgotten easily.

Wow, I must say that I did NOT expect myself to like this movie.

10 minutes into the movie, and I found myself being immersed. The action scenes were seriously spectacular. The story was very interesting as well. I really did like that plot twist at the end.

My favorite parts of this movie were definitely the action scenes, and I also liked the characters. Sebastian is just plain awesome. He's sexy, strong, smart, and dependent. What more do you want in a butler?

I really liked Shiori as well. Her character development was great! She puts other people before herself, and she isn't greedy about her life.

The actors that were chosen for their roles fit it perfectly! Mizushima Hiro is awesome as always. He fit Sebastian so well! I didn't really like Ayame before this, but I really like her now. Her acting in here was actually really good.

The ending was really sweet. That's all I'm going to say about that.

So YES, this is worth watching! You will not regret watching it. I'm saying this as a fan of the anime!
