Stroy
It's a huge topic, really painful issue, close to the heart, like you don't even understand just until you going through this kind of thing, shaming in school and women status in the society, two strong ideas

the contrast of the ideas are so strong you can't excape unless you are teen and you dream to find your first love , or maybe you fall in love with handsome boy in your class...so you like it a lot, it's a fairytale, but if you older you understand the meaning behinde this contrasts

The opening was promising (but than in the middle of episode 1 i realise it's another mediocre Kdrama)

1. The girl trying to kill herself and after that went changing her all face , not just one thing but overall!!! this is the opening
To go through this kind of moves- it's something huge and painful, it's like you take what mother earth/ god or parents give you and erase it forever, you don't like anything in your face and your life you don't treasure even a piece of it and think only what the society think of you ,

So if You are a ugly woman- people judge you and throw you out of the society

after she come to change her life she meet a handsome guy, he rescue her from all kinds of situations, yes! she can also do it alone but he appears every time and comfort her, he is there all the time until their romance become the main story

She even end up choosing him just because he look good, he can't provide anything like strong communication or deep dialogue
What exactly they have together ? what keeps them together? we don't even know realy

2. Soo ha - the woman that become mentaly ill from the idea of beauty

That was some of a great role she had, she play it amazingly . yet they didn't gave her even the privilege to reveal all her emotions through her past.
in the webtoon it's very strong.with flashbacks , her past story with the bad grandmother, her lousy mother that abandoned her, her father, she didn't even get this benefit even if they had enough time to show it...they choose to focuse on the bitch part and the romance= men

3. Another woman - Na Hye Seong the mother- her husbend use violent against her make her lose her ability to smell , lose her future as a woman and also lose her custedy of her kids , they choose not to get in the deep of it and in some way to defend the father. it's subtle you can't see it at first just if you read the webtoon you understand

She lose her all , he wants her to be pretty and shut up, the webtoon made her story very very powerful but here....no no no, we just have some parts

4. The fat woman - nobody want her because she is fat

In Sk you fat you end up as a joke, fat woman maybe worse? i don't know
but she end up just taking about Soo ha, why exactly? why they focus on Soo ha and not the man that betray her ....don't u find it funny as well?

There are more women..but i skip it

Acting and cast

all of the actors are looking good, even the "fat" actress look attractive, it's draw all the attention of the beauty and the status of women in the society to the power of a romance equal "men" , but more than that you didn't get anyone looking bad...how funny is that

Skills: Overall half of the cast was good actors, the others not so much

i loved Jo woo Ri and Im soo H they amazing actresses in this drama, for me they was the best
and the only scenes i can watch was with 2 of them,
The men...ho well, the lead actor is very very bad, is worse than bad, he just stand there like a tree and gaze at nothing...very strange,

Park Joo Mi..she is very strange actress,look more slay to me, fake, also what they made her to be very strange unlike the webtoon, her background story also related to women status - they menage to cover up her story so much you can't even relate to her.
Her actions in the drama was contrast in the best.too much. from women that dissapeared for so long to a loving caring mom...they could have develope her background story but they cover up the violence and the battle of custody, they could have make her story also on the spot. but it bacame trashy

To tell the truth i feel sory behalf the actresses that play in this drama, i feel sory for them to go through this like they in some of a cage or prison, maybe they want to reveal their personal toughts but just have to play this dumb role again and again, but here it's more hurtful because they need to face this issue strongly intensively
especialy Im soo H



Music
The same old mediocre ost, nothing moving or make you feel something. just for the sake of Cha Eun Woo to earn more money.and trying to be SUNG SI KUNG will not even near

instead of taking some underground band or anonymous singers that sing from their heart
or maybe even old old korean songs

Overall
This is a cruel issue that women suffer a lot, even men suffer this days, but women suffer twice, to make this happy ending and all this romance out of it as escape of this issue it's ugly, it's even slump, and the only reason behind this is purely of the sake of money, it's a huge industry of plastic surgeries control the finance of sk, i feel so sad people will not understand how much it influence this drama,it's like they don't even care of people..there' no morality left.
because it was such advertising drama and the last episodes are the worse.

This drama should have been darker, less sweet, more rough feeling, dark like even with sad ending.

i don't think it would happened in real life , all those sweet taking with this bad actor called CEW, i write enough of him. i think most of the audience are his fans and teens so they love this kind of dramas, the editing is with high quality producers but the overall plot was so hard to watch i just force my self to watch this .. the plot had a lot of potential it could be one master piece but they just though about money and teens...i feel it's sad because it's such a good topic and important one,

Ossan’s Love mainstream television drama , it was first aired in 2016( so quiet no one notice ) only one episode that no one even know about even now....but with the asian bl wave in 2018 everyone hear about the second round . almost the same story line but stretch into 7 episodes. almost all the same actors (only one replaced unfortunatly couse he was better)
I watch it when it was on stream with english sub , waiting for every episode to upload with huge enthusiasm. and i'm not the only one.
The main actor Tanaka Kei is -absolutly amazing!!! this actor just makes this little drama for what it is and there's no doubt about it.
on the other hand Hayashi Kento is so so , not convinsing and even annoying, he have the look of (excuse me) a villain like his previous role but not someone sweet and gentle like the character he had to play here ...it didn't work. the gap of the acting made his mark and it could be a lot better .
Another point is that i feel the main lead didn't take action even at the end, he never develope or change ever so slightly, so there isn't any depth of the characters it's like a 3d manga
overall it was satisfaying at the time i watched it and with a sweet moments ..i think the bl Jdrama could be alot better if they didn't use the effect of comedy , because the Japanse don't want to deal with the LGBT community they make it look like exaggerating comedy or manga while they have straight high quality dramas with depth this was too much for my opinion.the hype was because it was bl Jdrama ...we don't see it often and it's rare, even so you should watch it to support this and maybe we could see more of that kind and better!!!

The first moment i watch this drama this week and fell in love, the title present it as a series in youtube, but i get the vibe it's a film, after i search i found it's indeed a film from 2015

How do you recognise high quality film?

1. The cinematographic is on high level, this is like they make SK movies, the color, editing, position of the camera, also the scenes like the first one in the karaoke when they drink the bear, it's a starnge but funny angle, they use this combination of editing and filming mostly in the old SK films,

2. Another scene in episode 1, when Yoo Yang sitting in her room, you can see she is in the middle and after it she is on the side of the frame, usually they film from far and use this kind of symmetric frames, also the background is accurate , all the books and the mess in the room is not even a mess , it's well orginised so it's a "beautiful mess".

3. No make up, no fashion, no hair style (of the main actress)

Story
the story is about a woman called Yoo Yang , she is brave and optimistic, she doesn't care about what other think and she is also a Justice warrior, even if it's cost her losing her job she continue to be happy and believe it's all for good, i realy like her attitude, and mind set.

She doesn't wear makeup, her style more like a man, she is a tomboy , but her voice and pronouncing is like news anchor, very good voice she have,

The romance is like a Dessert, it's not what make her or moves her to act in a certain way, it's particularly amazing because in SK the romance always in the main story and plot and men usually are the leaders , here it's very different- she is the leader in the relationship, she don't want to get marry and she is accepting herself as the way she is,
i think that acharachter like her could have been a better choice for dramas like "ID Gangnam Beauty " that trying to deliver idea of beauty and women power

is like a short stories combine together, but still have line through it so there's a development or connection

Cast
Ahn Young Mi doing amazing job here, no one can replace her in this role
although i'm not a fan of Noh Min Woo he is also doing a great job to deliver a quirky guy

Rewatch Value
Maybe i watch the first episode again

Overall
I didn't want it to end!!! it's really good drama

At first i didn't like it, but the end was so good that it make me like it ,

Story
The story revolve around 2 women that met each other in some weird situation , the development of their relationship is quite fast and they end up in kind of a relationship without title,

Yoon-Joo ( 32 years old acting like a kid) she act like a virgin who never talk to people or even had any interact with them, more than that, it's like she born yesterday and kind of a social cripple.
So it's hard to august her introvert personality

She delusion herself that Jisoo like her but it's not the case, apperenatly Jisoo use her us a rebound and she only care what her father think and don't give a damn about Yoon-Joo

So she act to Yoon-Joo as nothing , using her just for sex,. while Yoon-Joo showing her love and affection and trying hard but she is so boring and dumb , every time she open her mouth and want to share what upon her hear Jisoo just make her shut up and ignore her feelings. so it's hard to watch.

To sum it up, it's like a first discovery of adulthood and your kind of Sexual identity, she is try to find herself through her difficulties in life,she don't find her self

so just at the end it's feel like she beginning to understand the pain about life, the role between them switch.
suddenly Yoon-Joo is the stronger and not wanting Jisoo anymore.

About the place of lesbian in the SK society , , it's influate on their relationship but i don't think its the main reason for the conflict between them, although it's have power,
first: it's the first Kmovie i watch with 2 women inlove, it's not so typical in general so in SK...even more, i guess it's very difficult for them to make this kind of a film,
second: there's characters that make them understand they are not welcome in their environment as if it a disease...so it's hard

Acting:
Great no fllows.

Music
there's no music , it's fit very well to the overall feeling

Rewatch Value
overall it's woth watching even twice to understand those conflict and the development of her personality

If you looking for fluffy sweet drama it's not, more for older audience , it's have a vibe of cinema film (also it is in a movie lenght 6 episodes contain 20 min) i didn't watch drama in this level for ages

After you read the manga (and dislike it) it's surprise me and it's up brighten the story and solve the low quality of the manga, if you want to read the manga, read it after you watch the movie

Ep 1-5 where spatacular!!!
First the editing and filming are number one, cinema quality on the aspect of light and shadows, colors, background, every word and every angle is calculated.

And they don't stop themselfes for filming intimecy scenes

Cast: 10 /10
The actors are amazing in every way, their skills is on the top , i love them, i can feel a lot of emotions, esspecially from Takezai Terunosuke that he's sexy, vulnerable yet firm and strong, his look so different from his character but he is so convincing you fall in love with him very fast, he is a king.

Music 10/10
The music is nostalgic, like the editing and filming also the music, the song called: "twilight dreams" by Chihiro Onitsuka she is also not young singer, with old voice, so also here it's remind some old vibe and emotional , fit perfectly for the background

Rewatch 3/10
Although it's fabulous i don't watch it again, because there is no mystery or something to figure

Episode 6 was moving and good also, again Takezai Terunosuke nail it, he was so great in express his emotions that it was even more real than real, it was like i move into his head, this is something that not every actor can do,

i confess i sympathized with him deeply

It's not that i didn't like the ending, but in the manga it has a nother chapter, and i wish they would add it, but i'm not so sure it will be. it's just can close the story better,

This was one of my first Kdrama, and it's a gay drama in disguise, read my review to understand why!

Cast: 10
The cast is just perfect, they act natural, every one of them fit to their roles! i think the main actress discovered, and she was so so lucky! and we are also lucky by that!, she was a star shining in this drama, you can't even think how perfect she was there because no one can replace and reach to the level of cuteness she where, first- she was a real real tom boy, her act was natural, she was born for this role. i love her so much!!! but only in this drama, why? because after it she became so sad you can't even imagen!!!
this role was so huge that she made it international and than get into so much troubless because she was maybe too naive or sensitive i guess, someone just want her to fall, she couldn't cope, she became a sad person, it's also making me sad because i loved her so much , she like die inside, the light of her heart is just turn off, if you watch her dramas afterword you will understand, she was so huge star that someone just want her to get hurt and rip off her smile and cuteness, every time i think about her i get sad,


Story- 9
Originality not by the plot but the script, the dialogs, very emotional, natural, real!!!\
You know why it's epic?
After this drama nothing came out in this level. nothing!!! it became a desert!
because it's so care free and natural like a glance to their real world and struggles and love so that you feel it's real, and this story almost could happend to anyone, even you, this is the level of this cute drama,
so you feel in love, and you want to hug the charecters and be with them so much.
You can't see this anymore

cons:
the only con i have about this drama (and this is why i gave it 9.5 and not 10)
it's to my opinion was a libiration of the LGBT community, call them to come forward and give them some little joy in their gloomy LGBT community in korea
its gay drama, this is only my thought!!!

the conflict in the drama about being gay it's huge , everything is around this idea, so they take a spin on it and made her a woman dress like a man, but the struggle that someone found out he is gay and need to cope with this - cover up later- so if you are gay it's ok because she is a woman

what i like about this is that they light this idea of struggle and show how hard it is and there's no bounderies of love...
but still at the end they cover up...


Music 10
i swaer this k unforgetiable ost, i'm crying from thinking about how real music was there...it was so srong because it's like they take young artists and gave them a stage, it's not the usuall kpop, it was more rock and indie, so it was so so great and epic that since then nothing !!! again...no bands in those kdrama, no more!!!
those indie band was the corner of the corner in SK, they are srtist you just don't hear in the dramas..and also it's again one of the pain that they are going thtough, by not giving them a voice any more,

You will watch it 50-100 times a gain because there's nothin else!!!

This is a short film you must watch if you like Bl Drama

Story
it's very realistic, not something special but touching, because you can indefy yourself with the lead character and could understand him and observe his deep emotions without even talking too much
everything is focuse on the 2 boys understand their feeling against the enviroment (their classmates) questening their place in the socity nd what the other will think of them, it's not like you watch fluffy tv drama with sweet moments, it's like you observe the deep emotions of this boy
this what's make great films the way they are, sometimes the actor do not need to be that great but if the producer is great the film will be really good

Cast
the cast is just wonderful, there not better then this , they could not choose other actor for this role, , i connected with them and they make you feel
more reason to like them that the actor is little dark skin then the usual in Thai dramas( at lease in TV dramas) it's make you feel they also have choosen not because of color and just because skills
Also the background it filmed in places that look real, not flashy

Music
To tell the thruth it surprise me a little,because the only song i hear is english and i don't know if i like it , i prefer thai if you make a thai film...
there's not so much music (it's the best to my opinion in those films because it's have a great influence on the quality)
So it was a good choice overall

Rewatch
if you looking for fluffy drama it's not what you get, what you get is like a food for the soul and it's precious

Story
the story is very simple, love triengle
A girl try to choose from 2 guys and she is checking her feelings ( unfortunatly out loud - most of the time we need to hear her thoughts
Because i can't put any details of it i can say you can skip to the end first before you watch so you don't have high expectation like i see others have

Music
The music is the worst,not invest at all, they realy like to play the synth , you ask yourself did they on a tight budget? so much tught like a kid playing in the computer with all the sound effect they like so much

Cast:
The only actor there is Che , he didn't get the credit he deserve
i don't think the others are bad but the problem is not with them
Uselly in Taiwan or china the actress acting like a retarded not reflect her age at all, its like they want teach women to act dumb so they can be "good" "pure" and "get the man" if you speak normal and acting like a real woman you get the "bad" role, like that is episode 3.
other people will think it her lack of acting but it's not. they want the lead actress to look average with her hair and speak look like 4 years old , it's not her fault!
But it make you want to stop watching if you are smart enough and know couple of things on women and life

Sum up:
Watch the Japanese version it's better( i'm still watching it)

Iv'e notice this drama in 2013 after i have seen the Korean remake (called "The Suspicious Housekeeper" that i liked also )
The difference between them that i understand now after reading some reviews is that the Korean virsion is more Digestible and the western viewers can relate to while if you into Japanese dramas and Japanese culture you can relate to this maybe more then the K virsion.
What i feel about the Japanese tv is "Still waters run deep" , it's slow and revealing piece by piece with some kind of deep emotions that hard to understand , and maybe the view on the woman is different
The korean version is more memorable as times go by now after a couple of years i can see the empact on me.

worth a watching

I watch it in one day, the few first episodes was great, they manage to capture your mind because the story line is refreshing
a woman losing her memory but it's not fantasy or melodrama, just a simple romance
it's make you want to know the end, what's happening to her and if it's going to be sad or whatever!
every episode was a jam and live you wanting to watch the next episode. so i didn't stop myself watching this until it come to the middle.
the first half is good because it make you identified with the character, even if it upseting to see someone so patetic (the main role leading charecter) there are some scenes that you feel this into your face.
Right in the middle Rolling downhill very fast it's become a melodrama , you even don't understand the action behind the main charecter .(playing
Furukawa Yuki)..you ask yourself if he isn't such a great actor or is it just the charecter?! he's looking like a human doll so you kinda forgive him, But his acting and the character combination didn't make any sense,
Also the main actress Nakamura Anne..she isn't so convincing to me , she deosn't look and speak like geek even if she's dress like one...
Ithink it could have been better and the storyline had a potential but it's ruined in the middle for some reason they have tried to make it longer maybe as it should and be "sophisticated" like combine triller with simple drama romance , go figure..i don't understand the writers mind,
Also something was off with all the decision of Otani Ryohei...no depth to his confusing behavor
The end live me with regret i even started watching this...it was aweful and i almost forgoten what is all about

I enjoy this drama because it was differente and unuseule on Jdrama scene. Dealing with transexuality, see how this woman or man very open with his sexuality and even dealing with his familty. the only issue for me was the only 4 episodes,
I'm 99% certain that they cut it in the middle and it where suppose to developed ,
The family issue maybe can be in progress and also the relationship between the gay living in the appartment and her
..yet we will never ever know.!!!
if you watch it till the end you understand.
It's very sad that someone had the power to cut this drama because it could be a jam.

I watched it in 2012 when it's aired and wait for every episode with enthusiasm ...i re-watched it 4 - 5 times because it was so good!!!
the plot
the acting and all the actors-every one of them
the producing
everything was perfect
it was perfect because it's like i can get into the real authentic South Korean modern culture and at the same time it was crossed with my culture , it's like i can see the connection that it's not so far and different.
The drama itself was refreshing and special in the Kdrama TV landscape off all the 11 years i'm watching Kdrama. it was more like the Kcinema production
it was like this because:
1. The story was special and original as if you can see it's real contradictory from other Kdrama that combine fantasy storyline
Yet it kept the humor and the ingredient used in Kdramas
it was like a salvation for the Kdrama at the time because it was for me at list the pick of the Kdrama,(addicted - i watched everything and know every drama there is....so i get tired from the same old plot
but this one was a sunshine through the rain. I also know that Korean people especialy from Busan (where is the story took place) love this drama a lot.
2. The acting was amazing...so moving , i love then the actor Seo In-guk at that time he was at his second role i've seen and i waited to see him on the screen...from then on i can't even watch him because this drama was so perfect and he is keep choosing bad roles . so this was his life time role (for now:)
3. the love story is not so far from reality i know couple who fell in love in hightschool and still in love so it was very real fro me
4. every episode make you want to know more .you don't know how it will end
love love love

I watched this Drama in 2007. The drama was so good that had stay in my memory for so long and i have to write this review. it's remain in my heart.

The acting is great, the story seems real and original it's get right to your heart.

It's one of those drama like "replay 1997" that you can see a young writer who bring new and refreshing simpe warm heart story.

You can see that Even it's pass 14 years from then it is still one of the best what is indicate that it's good drama

I waited for season 2.. don't know why, maybe that's because there's not so much Bl drama with average production. (usually it's bad ending or rediculous story)

The actors:
Krist is a great talnted actor, i like his acting he have skills , on the other hand Singto is immature actor that not convincing so much and he's character even less convinsing. so it was probably worse for him.

The chimistry between them was bad and the characters not realistic whats so ever, their relationship is a fiction, there was no affection or communiction like a normal human being. It's been 3 years since they started their relationship and still they are not comfortable with each other and not talking so much. even not hugging or something normal dialogs occurred.

The music:
Not to my taste like most of Thai dramas ost its banal , i don't know why all the ost in gmmtv sound the same.without connection.

The story
Boring and plain without emotions, they are in the office most of the time with no interaction between them , the characters around them also plain, it's almost like a long commercial

I try to watch this again ...but i just can't!

The first episode was promising. the title drew me to watch , it was little different.
After i began to watch i fall in love with the actor (remind me a little of Cha Tae-hyun vibe and overall the movie "my sassy girl") and even if the music is not my cup of tea It was cute
The actress..not so much, she is pretty so" i forgive" her bad acting and lack of charm
even if the plot is not unique and even a qliche, i had hope
But episode 2 Highlighted more and more her bad acting and singing.and the plot worsen .that was hard to hear and watch from the middle. the ending was truly bad.
