little peace of advice

if you love noisy mothers , this drama is made just for you. without her being the center of the drama, i would rate it a lot higher. this drama was carried by leads who hardly even get romantic scenes together. don't get me wrong. i love a good business centered drama but this time, it added nothing to the story. not to mention, whoever wrote the body of work must have terrible family. otherwise, i can't explain a mother who gets away with treating her daughter by playing a victim until the end of the drama

should've been at least 10 eps shorter

I can't believe that it took them years to release this series, and this ended up being the final product. Nothing wrong with actors, everything wrong with the writing. Initially, I thought that Ye Han and Li Xiao Xiao are the only MCs based on promo , so imagine my disappointment when I found out about other five characters who were quite irritating for most of the series. It caused me to skip a lot at some parts

underwhelming but better than s2

i start this review of by saying that i really hated subplots of season 2 so i sort of knew that i won't be enjoying this season completely. military centered story lines which started last season didn't peak my interest even back then. i continued watching for ah yi (who imo was the best addition from previous season), lee siblings and hyun soo.
good things about this season:
- no struggles with story spacing (major issue in s2)
- hyun soo seems to have decent amount of screentime compared to last season
- top notch cinematography
- great acting
bad things about this season:
- last season, writers brought in a lot of new characters to k!ll off (as i mentioned before besides s1 characters, i only liked ah yi for her mysterious aura and park chan young for his friendly non stereotypical military characteristics) . when most of them ended up dying, i didn't really care.
- i never read the books, but would've one romantic scene between CHS and LEY killed the writers? they already changed things in season 2
- the ending feels underwhelming because of the non existent built up for it. also, viewers deserved to see core 3 happy for one whole episode (i really hate when we don't get filler episodes when we need them)

headache at times...

I think when I'm writing this I'm speaking for the whole fandom. This series is far from perfect. I would say the best part of this series was the acting. Also, the chemistry was glowing trough our screen which was nice to see. Freen and Becky did a wonderful job on what they had to work with. I am looking forward to their next project together. Now, at first, the plot was promising but it fell flat and dragged out in the end. We hardly even got to see mon and sam happily together in peace. I won't lie. Wedding ending was nice but it felt rushed. I blame it on writer who focused too much time on sam's emotional abusive grandma and manipulative kirk

Hot Mess

PS: it's my first time writing a review so bear it with me
I must say that I feel underwhelmed about the whole drama. The casting choice was good and the special effects were all well done but something important was missing from the plot.
I liked the topics that were addressed and how those were adressed. From the characters' pov, the story was confusing and jumpy. It felt like a lot of important scenes were removed from the script. Instead of those, there were only action scenes.
Regardless of this factor, I completed it. I don't know if it was the smartest move to leave this drama with an incomplete ending knowing how past netflix series have been treated. Would I rewatch it? No, because I would grow to hate it

might be triggering...

My Broken Mariko is a visually stunning Japanese film that explores complex themes like mental health, grief, and redemption. The story follows Tomoyo as she travels across Japan to deliver the ashes of her best friend, Mariko, amidst the struggles of her painful past.

Through the visually striking imagery and outstanding performances, the audience is transported into Tomoyo's emotionally-charged world.

The music is thoughtfully composed and helps to create a vivid atmosphere, heightening the emotional impact of each scene.

Overall, My Broken Mariko is a journey of self-discovery and redemption that serves as a reminder of the human capacity for resilience and the importance of accepting help from others. The main reason why I can't give it a higher rating is because it has a low rewatch value because of triggering themes.

bitter hell

this drama really had many loop holes, draggy plots, very dumb main characters despite their degrees, a villain from comic books (can't believe that writer let her get away without punishment for so long). two things that kept me watching were the two leading ladies: kim hee sun (also, her character was the one i was rooting for this whole series) and lee hyeyeong for their masterclass acting despite this horrendous script and cinematography which was so breathtaking. what made me extra bitter was the ending of NYW. i can't believe that writers made NYW give up her career for a suicidal psycho.
for people who are considering watching this please threw logic out of the window.

could've should've ending ruined the last episodes of the series

i had to narrow down my ratings after seeing the last few episodes but overall it was an enjoyable watch. let me start with the strong suits of the drama that kept me watching:
- good acting by everyone from the main cast
- great cinematography
- interesting plot
- lovely support characters (i really liked that all characters had their own ambitions in this story . we even got flashbacks of their past which added a lot to the story)
- chemistry is out of this world
- moral of the story: don't trust men
- women were portrayed as smart people, especially XFF
now the things i didn't like that much:
- at some parts downplaying SA
- promoting it as an angsty romance (there was no angst since the beginning, only yearning)
- cheap cgi effects (but it's slowly becoming a trademark of a popular drama)
the biggest mistake writers ever made the messy ending of the show. they were trying to please core audience the book lovers and viewers at the same time. it ended up blowing up to their face
- SYR just offing himself after writers portrayed him as the obstacle
- WN's forced ab*rtion
- don't get me started on the battle scene where everyone got offed followed by peaceful epilogue of the leads

comfort drama material

things that i loved about this series...
- the main characters (not only them as a realistic couple but also them as an individuals)
- chemistry was chemistryng
- the acting (i've followed leads' works for years and i'm so happy that they got cast together)
- the setting (as a casual contemporary cdrama viewer, i don't mind when drama focuses more on occupation than romance)
- the cinematography and editing (ahn pan seok has magical hands)
- proposal scene (most of the "noona" genre dramas have open endings or leads barely make up so this was refreshing)
thing i didn't like that much
- just a little bit too much focus on some of the side characters (some of their scenes could've been cut)

definitely one of the best dramas released this year

call it lee hanee effect, but whatever this woman touches turms into gold. don't get me wrong, everyone involved in this drama has done an excellent job, but carrying the lead role especially so complex kind is amazing. i have zero complaints about the series besides the music. i've been waiting months for another drama struck me like storm like this drama did

maybe turning 16 eps dramas into 12 eps dramas is a good idea

This drama was a roller coaster of emotions. I have several complaints about subplots. Spacing at times was over the place. Why did they waste so much time on BDH's cheating husband or BIN's bully (who was pampered by writers)? Give me a good reason why Ina was forced to forgive a girl who bullied her out of the blue because others ignored her (as they should). Dohee deserved so much more and I wish that we had a better insight into her life after dropping that sorry excuse of a man. I can't believe that they dragged these story lines until the last episode. I've made my remarks previously on how leads chemistry isn't chemistrying but it's not actors' fault that their characters got together so late on the series. Also, I don't think the ending is open. It was pretty straightforward. The couple had a child (5 y.o in a clip) and Gwiju was pulled into his memory of them. Although, I wish that they would've had one episode to explain how BGJ survived the fire and maybe how their family earned superpowers in general.

episode 13 felt like a finale

it started out good but the logic flew out of the window in the middle of the series. there's also a lot of things that bothered me while watching.
- antagonists were made stupid as possible to make leads seem smart. it made me think that i'm watching some wattpad live action series. description of a psycho rich girl who tries to take the MC's man belongs right to that app
- the leads' acting was horrendous at times (especially during crying scenes), which made me less sympathetic towards MCs. wipe those teardrops of your face
- phone's plot line would've worked so much better if
a) there was another phone holder (who was trying to save one of the antagonists)
or
b) only yuan xia could accept phone calls
or
c) every time yuan xia survives, someone else d!es
unlike most of the other people, i liked the fact that they didn't threw in random comedy bits and kept leads' relationship romantic and realistic at the same time. second lead' couple didn't make me roll my eyes which was another plus.

maybe 12 eps would've been enough?

The only issue I had with this drama was that, at some points, the series felt a bit dragged out. I was also a little frustrated with some of the choices made by the female lead. However, I'm glad that all the characters ended up getting the ending they deserved. I am a bit sad that we never got to see a side romance develop between MC and you know who, but it got renewed, so I'm keeping my hopes up

loved this series to tiny pieces

the simplest way to describe this drama is that it's something between makjang and melodrama. unlike similar dramas, all characters had a purpose. although some of them managed to make my blood boil (cough cough FL's husband), the leads kept me enough hooked until the final moments of the series. the acting was flawless and raw, but what else to expect from such a skillful cast?

still waiting for renewal news...

this show had everything i grave for...
- good acting
even extras were acting like rent was due
- good chemistry between the cast as a whole
- well written from start to finish (origin stories, characters' personalities, dynamics and motives)
honestly, i might downgrade my rating, if we aren't getting renewal news any time soon
