Well, Well, Well... I didn't expect this film to be that good after reading the synopsis, but I was pleasantly surprised. Considering that this was one of the first films the young actors had played in their acting was spot on. With this kind of film it could be easy for them to go over the top and become unlikeable horrible teenagers but I found them relatable and more importantly likeable.

The storyline was good, it had be guessing at the murderer all the way through and wasn't obvious. The film was just right in length, short enough to keep the thrills up and long enough to tell the story without confusion.

Watch this if you love a good mystery but with a bit of comedy and doesn't take itself too seriously.

This film has it all. Horror, Humour and Hurt. The main character is likeable and understandable, you will find yourself rooting for her to be happy from the first scene. There are some extremely funny parts in the film were I had to pause it to catch my breath for fear of missing something important. The main male character is just too adorable for words. Yet at the same time this film made me jump out of my seat. It's an odd combination thats for sure, but well worth watching on a rainy afternoon. Throughly entertaining!

I thought it was finally time that I watched You're Beautiful as it seems the drama that most people watch when they first get into asian dramas. And I can now see why...

This drama is likeable, funny, at some points silly and moves at a quick pace. Sometimes with dramas like this I find that I skip parts because the storyline isn't moving quick enough. However with this drama I wanted to watch every bit because it well written and there is always something interesting happening.

The acting in this is amazing. The characters I was supposed to hate, I hated and the characters I was supposed to love, I loved!So they're all doing their jobs properly! Jeremy was by far my favourite character, as he was totally hilarious. I bet that you will love the characters too. I can't find a fault with the acting.

The music was also brilliant, which is especially important in this drama as it is focused in the music industry. I was bopping along with the songs, and by the end of it I had even started to sing along!

The only negative (Which isn't really that negative) about You're Beautiful is the love triangle. It's one of those ones where you want the girl to be with all of the guys and not to have to chose one. This drama certainly plays with your feelings and I was shouting at the screen at points. Trying to get the girl to with a different guy, but then when I thought about it, I decided that all of her options were good. I wouldn't be able to choose.

However the love triangle would make it hard to rewatch this, because once you've watched it, you know who she ends up with. But I would watch again for the funny moments!

Overall a brilliant drama, well worth watching. Plenty of eye-candy, drama and good music.

If I could some this drama up in one word it would be 'meh'. Boys before flowers isn't that special, it was kinda disapointing to be frank. Yes the actors were brilliant but the storyline lacked spark.

I'll start with the storyline, it was ok at the beginning and good through the middle but the end was an anti-climax and a half. The ammount of cliches in this show is annoying, I've seen it all before. I haven't seen any other adaptions of this show and since watching Boys Before Flowers I don't think I will. It was average at best.

However the actors in this show, particulary Lee Min Ho and Kim Hyun Joong were awesome. Each and every emotion was potrayed brilliantly and had this show a better storyline it would have easily got a ten. I liked the different styles of acting and personalities that each character brought, even the minor ones. Plus they're all nice eye candy.

The music in this show made it worth watching. I loved the soundtrack and plan to buy every song that I possibly can from it. A nice mix of classical and pop that fitted each mood. Very very good music in this show.

In the end I would reccomend watching it so long as your not one of those people who like to pick wholes in every detail. Its easy-going and makes for an enjoyable watch. But it's not life-changing or addictive. And you probably won't watch it again.

This drama blew me away. When I started watching it I was expecting a carbon copy of Dream High but what I actually got was an amazingly well written story-line, some great acting and an awesome soundtrack.

I'll start with the story-line. Although this drama doesn't have the most creative of story-lines it makes up for it with good pacing, I never felt bored while watching it (Which has happened with other dramas), developed characters, each one makes a visible journey from start to finish and you never question their motives. And the fact the story-line shows off the raw talent of the actors rather than making it too complicated.

The actors are well chosen, especially the females as I always find that some actresses don't pull their weight in dramas. Nobody's lines felt awkward, and there was chemistry between the characters despite there being little romance in this drama.

The soundtrack is what makes this drama go from good to great. I just wish it was available to download. You'll find yourself bobbing along and singing along to most of the songs. Each song is well-placed and none of it seemed forced.

This drama had me in fits of laughter and fits of tears, but in the end I was left with a warm feeling in my heart. If you liked Dream High then I am sure you'll like this drama too. But even if you didn't like Dream High then give it a shot anyway. I think you'll find yourself pleasently surprised.

URRRRGGGGHHH, this drama. I watched it while it was airing and never got round to writing a review. But I thought now would be a good time to add another rant to the pile and explain why you shouldn't watch this drama.

There are two things that are so wrong with this drama:
1. It totally sucks after about episode 10 when it just gets so repetitive.
2.Before body switch Kang Kyung Joon and after body switch Kang Kyung Joon are NOTHING alike. Which defeats the point of having a body switch storyline. Grrrrrrrrr.

The first two episodes of this were brilliant, I loved them. Shin Won Ho was brilliant, despite being a newcomer. I will deffo check out some of his other work because he's so slick and cool in this. Except he then goes and spends the rest of the series lying in bed looking pretty but not really adding to the story.
I don't know if this is just me but I found all of the other characters a bit annoying, especially Gil Da Ran. And there's nothing worse than an annoying main character. I also didn't like Suzy's character either, which makes me sad because I loved her in Dream High. Just another let down in this drama.
The ending was the worse part. This drama went from being awesome and funny in the first episodes, to bearable with some funny moments in the middle. And then just pure terrible at the end. Did the writers suddenly get ill or something? Because I cannot see how the ended up writing such crap for the last episodes. It literally makes me angry!

Overall, I would DEFINITELY NOT recommend this drama. I think it's one of, if not he worst drama I've ever watched. Want my advice? Stay well away and save your time for a drama that doesn't turn to dog dodo half way through!

This drama is one of the best written dramas I have seen, and the proformances from the actors involved was incredible.
If you like simple dramas where you always know what's going to happen then this might not be the drama for you. I found it deeply thought-provoking and exciting for the point of veiw of somebody intressed in how the mind works. If you're intrested in psychology then watch this, it really makes you think about criminality and why people become criminals.
On top of that, this story isn't just about murder, each character has a backstory which makes them more realistic as characters. Which is why I think that the writing is wonderful. If you like to connect with characters and care when something bad happens to them, then this is a good drama for you. As I fell in love with all the characters and I was almost shouting at the screen at points because of it.
The background music fits perfectly, and I found myself wanting to buy the soundtrack straight after watching it.
The only negative points about the drama, is that a) it's too short, only 8 episodes is not enough, so it's all over too quickly. And b) Once you've seen it the suspense is ruined because you know what happens. However I feel like rewatching it because of the acting and characters.
On a bonus point there is also great cinematography in this drama, it's shot in a beautiful location!

Holy Moley this film is good! At a glance its a fast paced, adraline pumped and thrilling action movie. But unlike most movies of this type it also offers an explantion as to why the things are happening. The cast are amazing, the main girl is hilarious and Lee Min Ki is hot and funny. With a side of badass. The oneliners and swearing only add to the fun affect.



I seriously suggestion you watch this if you like any movie that gets your heart pumping! A real good watch 10/10

This is the best drama that I have seen. Period. The friendships, the arguments, the reactions. Each and every character and storyline is perfect. I was so glad that I didn't stop at the second episode, because I would have missed so much. The music is perfectly timed and so catchy. Plus the guys arn't half bad to look at.

City Hunter is amazing, there is no other way of putting it.

The leading characters are protrayed beautifully and they seem so realistic, they are supported by an aray of different characters each with their own personality and traits.

The storyline is possibly the most original storyline I've ever come across. It had me hooked from the start and mantained the flow till the very end. It had me laughing, crying and shouting at the screen throughout the series.

The music is catchy and it gives suspense in all the right places and makes the fight scenes even more badass. I was humming the tunes whenever they came on.

Overall a brilliantly entertaining and egaging watch, that I would recommend to anyone. A nice mix of action, romance and with a hint of commedy. Plus theres the fact that the lead is tottaly hot!

If you love action then this is deffo the drama for you. It's fast paced straight from the start and manages to maintain the suspense right until the end. I'll go through the things I liked/disliked about this drama.

Liked-
I loved the storyline of this drama, you can tell that the plot was well thought out as it flowed nicely, had good pace and you could never tell what was going to happen next.
The acting was also great, although I'm still unsure as to what the point of TOP's character was. He was good at acting badass (but maybe that's because he IS a badass), but I didn't understand his character fully, maybe we weren't meant to. But overall a good cast and FINALLY two characters with chemistry. I'm so tired of dramas were the two romantic interests have no chemistry what so ever. This drama isn't even focused to heavily on the romantic genre but it wipes the floor with chemistry! Plus this drama includes one of the sweetest kisses ever (It will melt your heart!)
Another thing I liked was the use of special effects and the fight scenes. They were well choreographed and it made this drama visually stunning.

Disliked-
The music. To be more specific this one song that plays whenever theirs an intense scene which includes this weird buzzer sound. Like the buzzer sound you get in the board game 'operation' when you hit the sides. Obviously not a deal breaker for a good/bad drama but it REALLY bugged me.
The camera operators. Seriously, would it have killed them to buy a tripod?? I got motion sickness watching this drama. They need to reign themselves in and stop touching the zoom button when a characters face already covers up the screen.

Overall a very good drama and I would recommend if you like action/fight scene and if you're not that fond of cutesy romance dramas with cliche plot lines.

This movie seemed a bit pointless to me. After watching the first two death notes and having the second film end the way it did. I was unsure of what this movie would be about. Since the first two films were rounded off so nicely.

This film seems to have nothing to do with the fist two death notes, except for the fact that L's in it. But this film could be a completely unrelated film if it wanted to be. It doesn't even feature a death note.

For this reason I'm going to review this movie as if it was a seperate film from the death note series...

The acting was good, L is such a loveable character that he doesn't even have to say anything for you to like him. The child actors used in this film were suprisingly good for their age.

The storyline was fair, it was slow at parts and sometimes it didn't make sense to me, I wasn't sure if that was the writing or the tranlastion I watched. But I was satisfied by the ending.

I don't really remeber anything about the music. It wasn't impressionable, therefore neither good nor bad. I would have noticed if a song was completely out of place.

Overall I would say watch this movie, but don't expect it to be anywhere near as good as the first two movies. I would watch it again again just to watch L. No regrets!

I liked this movie, however I don't think it's as good as some of other reviews suggest.
The storyline is well written, but I found it a bit too simple as if it was written by somebody intent on playing it safe. I felt like this storyline was lacking something, although I can't put my finger on what. I didn't really like the turnaround near the end and felt like they should have taken the storyline in a different direction. Although I did like the ending and I thought it was quite sweet.

The acting was reasonable, although some of Jang Geun Suk's pretend crying really bugged me. That's my only complaint on the acting.

The music wasn't anything special, I can't really remember anything about it, good or bad.

As for rewatch value, this film is light hearted and fun while subtly giving across a good message. I feel like you can watch this film again and again even though it is predicable, you'll still crack a smile and points and be left with a warmed heart.

One big thing that bugged me about this film was the baby's voice. I felt that the film could have done without it. It striked me as an attempt to be funny, that wasn't actually funny. It just annoyed me. That's why I'm giving this a lower score than most other reviewers. It's a good film, just not my favourite.

This film is not my favourite, I only watched it because it had Lee Min Ki in it.

The storyline was solid but not amazing. It was a little slow in parts for the genre the movie is in. There were a few moments when I was intrested but for most parts its just average.

This movie is the type of movie where you need good actors or else it won't work. I mentioned before I watched this because of Lee Min Ki, he was good in it and if you like him then I definatly suggest watching this. I have also been introduced to some new actors and after watching this I will go check them out. For such a large cast, I think the variety worked well.

There wasn't much music in this movie, mostly it was instrumental so I didn't really notice it. Which is a good point because the soundtrack fitted the mood and It would have affected the veiwing if a song was out of place.

Overall I don't think I would watch this again purely because it is not my type of film. But I think someone who likes action, being trapped and realisim then this film would make a good watch.

I liked this drama, its fun and easy going but with storylines that are indepth enough to keep you watching it. Some parts were extremely funny yet others were mature and sad. Each and every character was played by a brilliant cast who can all sing and dance very well. I was sad when I finished watching it because I wanted to see more, good job there's a dream high 2.
