Just finished watching this and first thing I have to say: WOW ! This sure is different from the usual K-dramas yet still this has all the cliches you'll find from pretty much every K-drama.

When I started watching this drama I had only one reason: Jung Jin Young from B1A4. However right from the beginning of the first episode I was really captivated by the randomness and funniness of the drama. After the first two episodes I thought "Wow, this sure is not your average K-drama".

Then when the story moved along, it started to get a little messed up at some points if you didn't pay attention to what's happening on the screen. I mean you have to look at every little detail in the show to understand its real meaning.

This drama had it all: comedy, romance, family issues, revenge, tragedy and what else?

I liked every little detail of the story and I liked how the side stories and the main story all went to one at the end of the drama. It was nice to see how things changed and how the "puzzle got solved" as the story moved along.

The ending was what I really liked. I mean the very last scenes. Some might think "What was that ending all about? I don't get it." and some might say "Was that supposed to be an ending?". To me it was the perfect ending. A new beginning. There's no other words to describe the ending.

Then, should I talk about acting? I was really mind blown by the fact that this was Jinyoung's first time acting. Okay, at the first episodes he wasn't that good but as the story moved along his acting got better and better all the time.

I really loved the way the cast portrayed their characters really well. It really showed me that they chose the right cast.

About the music... It was really good. I think this was one of the few K-dramas where there isn't any singing in the OST in the insert songs. The opening and ending had. The insert music was really captivating. If anyone has watched Utsukushii Rinjin (Japanese drama) or American show Desperate Housewives you'll know what I mean.

I wouldn't rewatch this because I already know the story. If I am going to rewatch this it would be just the first episodes or then just some random clips from here and there.

I think this is one of the dramas that you need to watch with your brains to understand the real meaning because the plot is made up from so many "pieces". That might be the only problem in the plot... Which is why I gave 8 to a plot instead of 9.

Overall, I really liked this drama. When I was reading the comments I thought "What? How can they say this is boring?". But then again, everyone has their different tastes.

I really recommend this to everyone who needs a break from the usual K-dramas.

Just finished this ~~
Gonna give this 9/10 which is better grade than what I gave to the original (8/10).

Even though it dragged at some points in the middle, I liked how they made it different from original version. At some points especially in the beginning it seemed like an exact copy of the original.

The ending, the "double scene" (you know what I mean haha), them kiss scenes and the acting itself was better than in the original. Except that some characters *cough* Xin Yu and the reporter *cough* were way worse and not as natural or funny like in the original version.

What comes to the acting in general:

- I didn't like how Jiro Wang was missing the "Hwang Tae Kyung" style aka the facial expressions. They were in Japanese version so I was hoping them to be in this one too.

- Su Li Wen was annoying when she was playing Mei Nu playing to be her brother. But when she was playing Mei Nan himself she was kickass. I hope they would've showed more interactions between the twins haha

- As I mentioned above... Hwang In Deok playing Shin Woo / Xin Yu was awkward. A big minus from that. He was worse than Kim Hyun Joong in BOF (Don't kill me. I love KHJ btw)

- Evan Yo as Jeremy was super adorable yet he couldn't reach the level of the original Jeremy played by Lee Hong Ki.

There were no annoying characters in this one. I remember how I hated the mom in Korean version and the biach in Japanese version.

I liked the music in this one of course. I also like how they changed the "Otteokhajeo" to a completely new song. Points from that ~~

But the original one is the best one to me because it's the original and special to me.

Would I rewatch this? No.

Funny, because I can rewatch the original many many times and so far I've rewatched it like 3-4 times.

I guess there is some "magic" in the original one always hahaha XDD

By the way, the Japanese version got 6/10 from me. I can't even remember anything from it...
While I was watching this Taiwanese version I could see the Korean version in my head all the time. Which is why I was always surprised when they added some new things to this version ^^

I think that's all I have to say. Thanks for reading this ~

At first I tell you why I decided to watch this one. Like many others I started this for the same reason: Lee Da Hae and Micky Yoochun. I know it's a shallow reason to start a drama but I'm glad I did.

I started this one in May this year (2012) and marathoned first eight episodes at one go. Then my laptop started to have issues and I was without a laptop for last 2 weeks of May. At the beginning of June I got new laptop and watched other dramas.

Then one day I decided to get back to this one and watched 1st part of ninth episode. I lost interest to this show EVERY time I tried to watch episode nine. I tried to watch that episode for so many times that I don't even remember.

And finally this week (in August) I picked this up again and continued from episode 9. Then 10 and 11. After that I knew I would finish this in no time. After episodes 12 and 13 I was really hooked. And today I finally watched episodes 14, 15 and 16.

This drama basically is a drama that has really amazing and strong start and it gets somewhat boring in the middle. Then after episode 10 it gets really good.

If it wasn't for the strong beginning and superb last 3 episodes I would have given this 6. But thanks to those 2 things I gave this 8.

In my opinion this had a perfect ending. It was a bit rushed but I think it was still perfect. It was different from your usual romantic drama.

Watch it and let me know your thoughts ~~

I just finished watching this. This was my first Japanese historical drama. I'm not good at writing reviews so I usually don't even write them. However this time I decided to write something.

I watched it because of my favorite actress Nakama Yukie. I've seen her acting very different characters; high school student, high school teacher, Sadako, clumsy police, woman with multiple personality, silly yet lovable reporter and her character in Utsukushii Rinjin whom I have no words... So I was tempted to see her acting in this one too.

Second reason why I watched this was Gackt. I loved his creepy yet attractive character with long tongue. If you're curious what he does with the tongue watch the drama.

I was amazed by the drama. I'm glad it wasn't super long. Otherwise I would've ended up dropping it...

The music was very good and now I feel like I know something about Okinawa's history.

The acting was good but from some new actors it wasn't as good but I still liked it.

Okay I have no idea what I'm babbling about. I liked the drama and that's all. I think this is a drama no one should miss.

I just finished watching and I just have no words to explain what I think of this.

This was a pure masterpiece! Full 10 out of 10 and I think this goes to my favorites here on MDL. If possible I'd give this 11/10.

I absolutely loved the acting in this one.

The actors may be young and yes, flower boys, but they are the kind of flower boys who knows how to act. At least that's what I think. In my opinion there are 2 kinds of flower boy actors: the ones who are there for eye-candy and just for that. And the ones who are there to act and offers some eye-candy too. This drama has the later.

There are few things in the drama that didn't make sense...
The ending was good but I don't quite understand the meaning of the ending... Maybe I need to sleep through the night and recap the drama on my head while sleeping and then I'll realize the meaning of the ending?

The music was really good and haunting. Except the Britney Spears song that was used as the ending song for some episodes... I skipped the ending song :D

I think Korea should make more dramas like this one.
It's a rare gem and I haven't stumbled upon Korean dramas like this one before.

My rewatch value for this one is really low because... You already know what's going to happen and how this is going to end.

Just finished this one. I gave it 5/10 yet still I really liked this. Why 5, you ask? Because I think this would've been a lot better if it was a movie instead of 12 episode drama.

The acting... really bad. I felt like I was watching stones :'D The music... it fits the drama but it's repetitive. I hope there would've been more variety to the music. The story... slow slow slow. Like I said, would've been better as a movie.

This is very short review but... yeah.

This drama is cute indeed but... that's all.

This is the review I wrote to DC as soon as I watched the movie when it came out. Not gonna edit it so bare with it XD
---

My jaw dropped and eyeballs almost popped out of my head when I logged on to DC today. The long waited Liar Game Final Stage movie has come out. And what’s better it’s SUBBED.

Deceiving, believing, greediness and back stabbing. Plus top of it good plot, an awesome cast and more awesome music. This movie has it all.

Even though I hate Kanzaki Nao I have to admit that Toda Erika CAN act. Her acting in this movie was way better than in the drama.

All in all: this is a movie that is definitely worth watching. If you didn’t like the drama then I guess you may like the movie because this movie was way much better than the drama. The only good point of the DRAMA was the music and Akiyama Shinichi (minus his hair).

Have fun watching this movie! It really makes your brain work. I watched it while I’m suffering from light fever :D.

As a person who likes mystery/crime dramas as soon as I started to watch this I knew this one would fly straight to my list of good dramas.



Plot is good and I think it's similar to American series "Cold Case". I liked that series but I think this one is better because this doesn't have many and many more seasons like non-Asian dramas usually has...



Acting was great. Ueto Aya is my favorite actress (well one of them) so I might be biased a bit. Her character was different from her characters before. I also liked every other character too. I think the "lab nerds" were amazing, especially Kimura Ryo.



I liked the insert songs/music in this drama. Opening and ending suited for the drama but they weren't my taste though..but I still liked them...maybe it's a bit weird..



I re-watch only rare few dramas and I think I might just re-watch this one day. Though there's still SP and 2nd Season for me to watch.



Overall I gave this 8 even though most of the ratings are 6...



This is a good drama for Ueto Aya fans and people who likes mystery dramas like I do :D

Just watched episode 10 of this~~
I know I have still 2 episodes left but I'm going to write this review XD

I don't know why people are saying that this is cheesy or boring or that the plot is lame :O

I think this is one of the most original j-dramas for a while. The plot is really good and there are mysteries coming all the time. Just the way I like it. And just the way a good drama is supposed to be.

The acting is superb and gives me cold chills all the time ! Not to mention the music that stays haunting in your head.

This is one hell of a short as a review but this is totally worth watching. Will watch last 2 episodes tomorrow and I'm afraid I won't be able to sleep well or concentrate at school tomorrow at all. Not that I normally would either :'D

I don't think this is really considered as review...or it might be. Not sure. Anyhow here's my personal experience with this drama.

I started to watch this in 2010. So it took me more than one year to finish this one.

I think the drama started out great and it was really cute. But then guess what happened? I didn't find any working mirrors. When I found working mirrors the drama started to repeat things over and over again. Which lead me to get annoyed since in my opinion things between main leads took so long to evolve.

Then this week I decided that I'm gonna finish this drama finally. So on Monday I started from episode 9 and just finished watching episode 16.

I'm glad I finished it because last episode was totally worth all that struggling. I really recommend it to everyone as long as you can get through that the drama repeats the same things a lot and the fact that the clothes are horrible. Especially when it comes to male actors' clothing.

Thanks for reading this so called review :D

At first I'll say: this is my first review and I'm not good at writing these...

I've watched this movie two times and I loved it on both times. It's my favorite movie. Well one of my favorite movies. Anyway first time watching this movie I laughed my ass off all the time starting from the first seconds. Same with second time.

This is a typical Japanese movie with a silly story and not-so-good-but-not-bad-either acting, but isn't that the reason why we love Japanese movies/dramas? For me it is.

The chemistry between two main actresses is good. Not the best but it's good. I love the cast. Fukada Kyoko is an amazing actress but her acting wasn't the best in this movie...

Okay I'm making no sense anymore...

But,
Watch the movie and see if you'll like it or not.

First of all I'll tell you why I watched this; I was scrolling through DC and saw that there was a movie named Jenny & Juno. I thought "What movie is named like that? Sounds like some soap bubble movie for little kids." I was sure I had heard the name of the movie somewhere and then I remembered. I heard the name on facebook. Yup. My friend had commented on one music video (Cyndi Wang's song to Momo Love OP) I had shared there.

So today after school I was really bored and looking for something to watch. I was planning to continue Lucky Seven but realized that I want to watch a Korean movie after a long time. And I haven't watched many K-movies either. This was my 4th K-movie.

THIS IS WHERE THE REAL REVIEW BEGINS :D

Anyhow, the plot of the movie was very good. Main reason why I decided to watch this was the plot. Mainly because it's really similar to my all-time fav j-drama 14-sai no Haha.

Acting was...well how could I say it. The main actor and actress were REALLY CUTE. They were so cute that I couldn't concentrate on the acting...Plus I always kept comparing the actress of Jenny to Shida Mirai's superb acting in 14-sai no Haha. So acting in this one didn't blow me out.

When the music started for the 1st time I thought it was really cute and catchy. Then while the movie went on the music stayed the same, only singers changed. So I got annoyed of the fact that the music was repeating and repeating again.

I think I won't be re-watching this. I usually don't re-watch series/movies unless they're something "special" to me or unless they blew my mind out while I watched them.

So overall this was a cute movie but nothing special. Thus I'll give this a 6.

Thanks for reading my review ^^

I heard lots of good stuff about this drama:
"It's so cute and everything"
"It beat out 1 Litre of Tears and Gaksital on MDL"
"It's so different from other typical k-dramas"
etc etc.

So I thought, why not giving this one a chance? After all it has Seo In Gook, Eun Ji Won and Hoya ^^

I started to watch this yesterday and watched first 8 episodes = 1st half of the drama. After those 8 episodes I thought:
"I really can't understand HOW and WHY this became the #1 drama on MDL. Of course, the story is cute, it has good and strong comedy, it has good looking cast = perfect drama right? But to give this 10? No way. I'm not sure if this gets even 8 from me."

And today, I watched rest of the episodes = 2nd half of the drama. The second half was stronger in my opinion and I really liked how they didn't reveal the ending before the final episode. It was funny to figure out which one ~

Then about cast: I liked how they used new actors but of course that can be seen in their acting as well. I really loved how all the cast members used the Pusan accent. I just think it sounds really cool XD Before I haven't thought nothing of A Pink. I just haven't been able to get into their music so I was hesitating whether to watch this or not.. After all the female lead is from A Pink.
"They're boring and dull", I thought. But the acting of Eunji proved me wrong. At first she was REAAAALLY annoying with all her whining and stuff. But then I grew to like her character a lot.
I knew that Seo In Gook is a cutie pie but this drama made me appreciate him even more. He's just so cute XD And Hoya.. His acting wasn't the best but the character of him was really well acted ^^ Eun Ji Won is over 30 and he did really well playing a high school kid. I really loved his chara a lot ~~ The parents of Shi Won were really amazing XD

My conclusion:

Gave this 8. Just because the story was cute and I liked the cast. I didn't like how it jumped back and forth all the time. But while going forward the final episode it all glued together well. I considered giving this 9 but I just can't. The acting wasn't the best out there... But still, very cute drama ^^ Seo In Gook, Hoya and Eun Ji Won were superb ~~

If you read all this I'll be really thankful XD Sorry for this messy review...

If you want to watch a horror movie with scary elements, I think you should watch this.

I was expecting this to be better but it was quite good. Though I think this would have been better if I didn't watched the original/earlier Ju-On/The Grudge movies before.

I think that the actors did a great job and music was awesome. Though I was hoping to get to see more Seto Koji's and Ai Kago's acting.

The movie was quite confusing at the beginning but then it got better. It would've been better if the movie weren't in different stories but in one big story. Though all the stories filled each other.

The ending was different than I imagined it to be. You have to watch this really patiently because it's so confusing.

All in all I think this was a good horror/suspense movie :)

A review I wrote to DC when I watched this in 2010. Not gonna edit it.
---

WOW! When I saw this movie was added to DC today…it literally made my day!

The movie I’ve been waiting like forever is now here!

This movie was something too awesome. I didn’t expect a half American half Japanese movie to be this good! The ending song was awesome. This movie has Horikita Maki, my favorite actress, Matsuyama Kenichi, one of the best actors in the world, AND Tegoshi Yuya, one of my favorite JE members.

This movie made me cry and laugh through the whole movie. This was one of the best movies I’ve seen so far. I really recommend this to everyone..
