I have to admit i was waiting for this drama for about half a year and now I finally finished it!!! In this drama what i liked most was the acting and chemistry between characters.

Typical drama

the friendship that made me wish i had a best friend like that- someone who understands you and thought the same as you or close to same as you.

There was a couple of people that bothered me.

Love triangle - its nice to see the relationship develop between Xiao Je and the two male leads.

the fashion- I live in Ny therefore if i try on some of asian fashion people will look at me funny, but how i wish i could get a stylist to do my makeup and clothes. The whole drama i was staring at the females eyelashes- too bad they are fake, but its nice to look at. ^.^

Not typical drama
I always get annoyed when the story rises to its climax and so many problems arise- most of the time I would just drop the drama or start looking for another drama to watch, but this was an exception.When i say this is not typical I mean It had this kind of nice and warm feeling. No evil mother. It was a mother who was open to accepting things- as many other characters except a few.

Although this is a mature drama, but i really enjoyed the romance and you know how romance can be childish at times. You have to see it.

And finally, this drama had a mature characters. A strong female lead- I saw how she grew in work,she doesn't always need someone to protect her because she can do it!!!

Overall there were many "awwww" moments and moments where i could not stand to see what the old grandpas where saying. But they weren't up to where i would drop the drama.

Melodrama? I totally dislike to watch melodramas. However, I do not know what it is in New Tales of Gisaeng that grabbed my attention and kept me until the end. This is the first drama that I watched fully those 52 episodes.

The plot is very interesting and it kept me at the edge of the seat most of the time. There were some parts, but I did not mind. I felt connected to the characters and the screen writer Im Sung Han had presented very interesting aspects in life, which I had never really thought about. As I was watching, I wrote down some aspects of the conversation because it was very well said. I think I was inspired to learn things that I have never learned before.

I found the couples have great chemistry. Even those who had been living together for more than 30 years. I was laughing and crying along with them. This is truly a TV show that would make you feel good on the inside. I did not think it to be a melodrama. Most of the aspects that the author had presented seemed real. I think this is what makes Korean dramas stand out and make us go out there and enjoy watching them because in the end I grew very attached to the characters. It felt sad that I have to find another great drama.

Overall, I believe that everyone would find something interesting as one would sit back and relax and start watching New Tales of Gisaeng. Let the drama take its course.

This is the first time I am writing a review! I just finished watching this drama. My suggestion is to keep watching!!!

Once, my friend and I were talking about which drama we preferred. And she said "One that would make me cry."
Well if i had the chance i would definitely would suggest her to watch this.

I have to say the acting was simply great. Those characters that I despised in the beginning changed my thoughts in the end. I was actually crying for them. It turned out to be a lesson for them.

I loved the romance. This is a great remake of Romeo and Juliet!!!!

As for the story of revenge. I thought about what the writer was thinking. In my mind the writer wanted to create a story line - "life isn't perfect. We fail. We succeed. But in the end we learn." From some of the scenes I thought about "when you don't think things through, you simply fail." Therefore, I have to say this drama teaches you a lot of powerful lessons.

Unfortunately, the meaning of revenge in this drama is quite different from what I have in mind. In my opinion, I prefer City Hunter's, Iljimae's, etc. ways.

Remember everyone has a different opinion.

This was a fantastic movie. I lost too many tears, now my whole face is swollen from all the crying. I think I cried more than in drama, 1 liter of tears. It is a pity for such a great guy to go through so much hardships. But in the end he found his true love, and he no matter what takes care of her.
I cannot believe Alzheimer exists at such a young age. I know someone with Alzheimer's disease, and this lady recognizes the voices of her loved ones, or I feel like she does. But I didn't expect that this is how it is. Anyways, I'm glad I've seen this movie-it is totally amazing.

I know this is a sad movie, but trust me I loved the ending, even though I cried and knew what might happen in the future. I am glad the writers ended at that, otherwise, I many more tears will be lost.

I had an English essay where I had to write a sad story, to get into the mood I was watching One liter of tears mv, but now I can add this movie to the collection.

I wanted to start watching this drama when I will have a spring break; however, I started with the first episode and continued watching. I could not stop because it was really interesting. I did not know what was going to happen next. Each episode had its own unique charm to it.

I felt the story line is very unique. At first when I started watching I thought this would be smallville type of series. However, this is a very cute and mature drama, not about the powers, but more about the connecting and realizing that this person is meant for you. Honestly, I felt I was part of the story. I believe it is very well written. The actors had done a great job.

One thing I would tell you is to sit back, relax and keep your mind open about the possibilities because you do not know what course the drama will take.

10 Promises to my dog is a heartwarming, sweet, cute movie between the owner and her dog. It is like seeing a cute dog on a street, but this movie goes in depth with the friendship and the bond between them. This movie reminded me of my pet - Antosha the hamster (he may not be a dog, but he was my best friend!). It is the friendship, loyalty, and love that we shared and the memories we created.

The real message of 10 Promises is to cherish our loved ones:

The girls mother created the 10 promises because she realized the true nature of life. Day after day living on earth, we forget to open our eyes and see the beauty in life. Therefore, we should life without regret and tell to the people we love how much we love them. Otherwise, we may regret in the future.

Overall, this is a great movie to see. However, be aware you need to have a box of tissues at your hands....

There are some dramas, where you watch them, but you forget what happened. This one, on the other hand, you will remember the name and the plot. This drama had a very interesting start and very interesting ending; however, it turned out to have many melodramas elements, which I'm not a fan of: too much tears, and pain, plus I did not like the abusive behavior of grabbing someone's arm ( It bothered me). However, this drama had presented real life elements, which if you do watch it you will recognize them. It also presented some tips such as not trust your boyfriend that easily....

Anyways, this drama turned out to be very interesting plot-wise because it contained many twists and turns, which reminded me of a crime drama (see how the crime is unraveled). The actors had played their role, and I was not aware of what will happen next.

As for re-watch: I might rewatch or i might not. For the most part I found out what happened, so I probably won't watch it again. But I might come back and watch parts of it....

Usually i don't finish watching dramas because I get annoyed easily and start looking for something else to watch. I admit I am trying to catch up on so much- that I left this one be. Every time I go back watching it sucks me in.

I am NOT a fan of Japanese Dramas simply because I don't get them! But this one - you must give it a chance. It did have a slow start and at some point I According so some of the reviews...

Yes the plot is not as original- the whole rich man vs poor woman (the title says it all)BUT this is my favorite theme of dramas. In my opinion that is the whole point a drama- to forget about what is happening in our world. And simply relax and enjoy the ride of emotions.

In the beginning I thought "oh boy this is going to be annoying" because of the main actress'es voice. It becomes so high pitched that it made me want to run away. After a while I did not care.

What I did care about was how is it going to end? We as viewers can predict oh they will be together, but how that's why stay and find out for yourself.

I have to say- the story will keep you at the edge of your seat the whole time.

I am a big fan of City Hunter, therefore I gave this drama a chance because there is a lot of technology is involved. Definitely awesome!!!!! Too bad there wasn't any action, but who cares. The actors did an awesome job. There were well chosen- many cute guys (even those who are evil- so it's hard to tell until the writer wants you to know).
As a fan of City Hunter, I loved the music- here it's pretty much the same story. SIMPLY AWESOME MUSIC!!!!!

Therefore overall a great drama, if your into Crime and Investigation. You might be disappointed if your favorite genre is Romance. You won't walk away with nothing because there is a lot you can learn about the tech.

Awesome, awesome, awesome. I liked many things about this cute 3 ep drama.
1. It's only 3 episodes. Give it a try, it is only 3 hours of your life. I'm sure it's going to become much more. I'm putting this as my favorite drama!!!

2. It is a school drama. A lot of innocent love. It's very cute.

3. Double identity. When I was younger I loved this theme. Now, when I saw this it brought great memories of childhood.

4. The music- I'm definitely downloading the soundtrack. I loved it. It was catchy and it will definitely serve for more years. The dancing scenes used great music. And I loved what Geurim said "don't fight dancing simply enjoy it." If you enjoy what your doing- there will certainly be more success.

5. No melodrama- it's light. Less stress. I simply enjoyed watching it. This is my face at the end ---> :D

I found "I need romance" on a list of the best dramas of all time, so I figured why not give it a try.

From the beginning, I was dragged into the show. It has been a while since I started watching a drama without watching other dramas in-between.

The story: It had its ups and downs. I felt like it started off smoothly, but it still needed some work done towards the end. I don't want to spoil it, so I would only say: Guys? and What happens next?

Acting: The actors had played their designated roles. Even the main actress, who over-smiled, brought out a heartwarming feeling.

Music: At first, I didn't really pay attention to the music, but after a while, I felt that everything fit together. I especially liked when the girl friends got together to discuss the 'problems', the music at the moment brought out that these girls are besties for life.

Will I rewatch this drama? - Well that depends if I won't find anything else to watch, then I would go back to my favorite dramas. However, I would definitely go back for the guy tips. LOL.

This drama had a slow start, but it picked itself rather quickly and by the end I found myself enjoying and smiling along with the characters. although at first I was annoyed by the stylists hairstyle, but I got used to Jang Man Ok curly hair, which made her look like an old lady, but just watch and ignore her hairstlye because she will get another! I absolutely loved her strong side. This season I found it was lighter, which a great start of my Christmas break. I won't compare the two seasons of Full house because I need to re-watch the first season; however, for those who were wondering if this season is the continuation of the first, my answer is no because this season had a brand new start with new actors and new plot. This drama showed a great characterization of characters, especially for Tae Ik. I would totally recommend you to watch it. It is great satisfaction or should I say relief after watching too many dramatic series.
