Aww this movie isnt as bad as the other review suggests. Yes the ending sux but the stuff that comes before is kind of interesting to watch. The acting was pretty average but I liked how all the characters come together, each having their own special talent, to put on this fashion show. Its the one last chance to spend with each other before the inevitable occurs (the sucky ending). I was really disappointing with the romance part cause they could've just added that one last scene at the end showing them together at least to give us some hope. But yeah I'll repeat the ending sucked. There are worse movies out there so if you just need something to watch this is okay, although 2 hrs is a little much for the story.

Dream High is an entertaining watch for sure...

Story- The writing was very solid with twists thrown that took what could have been just another romantic comedy and made it an addicting and unpredictable watch. It's only downfall would be the ending. The ending kind of seemed random and I didnt understand why certain people couldn't be together.

Acting/Cast- Everyone played thier parts well and were believable. However, I did not like 3 of the main 6 characters. To me the characters Hye Mi, Jin Gook, and Sam Dong were highly unlikable to the point I wished the writers didnt focus on them too much. My favorite characters were actually the adults and of course Pil Sook & Jason couple.

Music- Awesome and went on my ipod straight away. The music really added to the excitement of the show.

Rewatch- I'd watch this every year cause it was funny and i worship pilsook/jason couple.

Overall Dream High's plus's would be its solid writing and its OST which make it a drama that is highly recommendable.

Well after watching the first 6 episodes I didn\''\''t expect to become addicted. I actually contemplated on dropping it. Then episode 7 happened. The storyline changed so dramatically. It became dark, unpredictable, romantic, and exciting. The story stayed fresh and exciting all the way to the end. The last episode was seriously WTF till the last 5 minutes. Of course they couldn\''\''t part with thier signature unpredicatbleness. Still, the ending was very satisfying.

The acting was very well done. Han Ye Seoul shined throughout ans showed acting wise she is not to be messed with. Eric did a good job but I don\''\''t think this is his best role. Lee Jin Wook really is a good actor. Yes his character was stoic for most of the drama but the small scenes where he got to show his personality (like smiling and his love for MW) really proved his acting abilities. I rally liked the character of Joo In Ah. She was cute and all she wanted was to be loved.

The music suited the changing moods of the drama.

I\''\''ll rewatch this but probably farther down the road.

Overall this is a drama that gets better towards the later half of the episodes. I\''\''ll miss this one for sure.

Going into this I had no expectations and this was my first time watching anything with the leads...

Story- Predictable yet so engaging that you won't want to stop watching by the end of it. The cooking theme was done so well that even though you watch them do the same things every day it is fascinating and not repetitive. The romance was perfectly done because it wasn't so intense/messy but it wasn't simple/without conflict.

Acting/Cast- The leads are known to be amazing actors already but they were perfectly casted because of their amazing chemistry. I fell in love with the entire supporting cast.

Music- The first time I watched this I didn't notice the OST but the second time I watched it I downloaded all the songs to my Ipod. I listen to the songs all the time now.

Rewatch- Already watched it twice in the same year and I'll continue to do so.

Overall Pasta gives no surprises but it really is fascinating and with the awesome cast and OST it really is the whole package.

I thought this movie was really different. It had a really interesting plot outside of the whole setting up a bakery premise. The ending was kind of sad to me for some reason. I really liked the entire cast and thought they did a fantastic acting job. I didn't expect to like this movie so much because its not something i'd really go for but I ended it up loving it! I know i'll be watching this again.

Really silly but heartwarming drama about people becoming a family. There's a little twist thrown in there and mystery. You also question who really are the good guys. The romance is not the best but its better than a lot of other J dramas. The end was nice. I just hope there is a special at least! Really fun drama to entertain you for a couple hours. Watch it!

To be honest the story is quite average. I found myself bored in some parts mostly with the romance storyline between LMJ's & Daniel Choi's characters. They didn't have any chemistry so it made it hard to root for them and the way it was written made thier "love" not that believable. There were quite a few funny scenes though which I appreciated. The ending was surprising and cute.

The acting was really well done by everyone. I really loved the cast! I really was impressed with PSH's acting. I liked her character the most=D Wish she had more screen time though!

When I first read the synopsis for Padam Padam I honestly didn’t think much of it. Okay so a guy falls in love with an unemotional girl but has a “guardian type” friend played by Kim bum on the side? Just so you know all I got from this was Kim Bum. That is basically the only reason I even thought of watching in the first place. Amazingly enough though the first episode was so interesting that I looked beyond what first attracted me to even watching in the first place…

Story- Right from the first episode your mind will be all over the place while watching. I kept going WTF every moment and then the ending of that episode was like “are you serious?!” but in a good way. After watching that first episode I knew I was in for a show with a story I had never seen before in the Kdrama world. The story went at a slower pace but it was needed to not only build up the plot in a way that will keep the audience interested throughout the entire run, but also it was needed for the development of Kang Chil’s relationships(not just romantic). I wont give a way the ending (which honestly with the way they started the drama it could’ve gone anyway the writers wanted being unpredictable) but I will say it was bittersweet and not completely closed. Really though I cried in the last 2 episodes and its hard to make me cry!

Acting/Cast- Phenomenal acting by everyone involved including every single one of the supporting characters. Really though JWS. HJM, and KB really shined and brought their characters to life. Those three deserve acting awards and I hope they at least get nominated. I just wanted to point out that I really did not like the character Ji Nah at all during the first half of the series so much so I didn’t care about her romance with main character. But her character development during the second half was so good and made me root for her. This is what good writing is all about. Making you hate a character one minute but then changing your mind in another is pretty amazing to me.

Music- I liked the music score more than the OST but the songs did elevate the scenes in which they were meant to.

Rewatch- I would wait 3-4 years before watching this again just because this is one of those dramas that doesn’t need to be watched for a while because once the plot is known you don’t get the same feel you had the first time. Hopefully by then I will forget most of what happened during the story so I can enjoy watching it again.

Overall Padam Padam plays like a movie with the excellent cinematography, acting, plot, and score. This drama was new, refreshing and I hope there are more dramas like this to come.

You can't really compare these two because if you try you will not be able to watch the J version.



The story is pretty good but of course a lot of things are left out because the episode count is cut down. They did a good job of including the important scenes. I didn't bother watching the last episode cause I kind of got bored with this drama but I heard the ending is better than the K version.



The cast was great and did the best they could, but I didnt really care about their characters. The entire cast didnt have the same chemistry that the K version did. Still everyone managed to pull off thier parts.



The music in this was just good. I kind of forgot they were playing a band because except for 2 scenes you didnt really see them practice or play anything. Definitely cant compare to the Korean OST.



I'm not sure I'd rewatch this or not just because I could watch the K version.



Overall this isnt bad or amazing its average. I'd recommend watching the Korean version if you find the summary interesting.

So this is an update review after rewatching it a 2nd time...

Story: A predictable HILARIOUS well paced romcom about the entertainment industry. Had an awesome ending!!

Cast/Acting: Cha Sung Won was PERFECT as Doko Jin. Really I dont know anyone who could have played him better. He had a subtle chemistry with Gong Hyo Jin (same tame natural acting style you see in every drama). I didnt really care for the supporting characters as their scenes tended to bore me. That was kind of disappointing because the Hong Sisters usually tend to write interesting supporting characters that I love in addition to the main characters.

Music: Catchy songs for the drama but I was disapointed that it wasnt as good as their past OSTs that get me to download them.

Rewatch: Being super hilarious Ill watch this again in the future when I want a good laugh.

Final Thoughts: This is a must watch if you like romcoms and are a fan of Cha Sung Won.

I wasn’t originally interested in watching this just because the farming theme really wasn’t appealing. And although I like Eun Hye Unni I also didn’t know who the male lead was so I didn’t bother with it, that is until I saw Whats Up and got introduced to Oh Man Suk…

Story: The first couple episodes were really funny but once they do get to the vineyard, it kind of becomes repetitive because all they do is fight while learning to farm on the vineyard. I would have also liked to see a bit more romantic development earlier on instead of their whole relationship being squished into the last episode. I will say that it did have one of the best endings ive seen that will surely make anyone leave the drama with a smile.

Acting/Cast: If you never heard of Oh Man Suk (watch Whats Up! Now) don’t not give this a try like I did for a while. He is an underrated actor. I loved his pairing with Eun Hye(who everyone knows is a great actress). They had the perfect chemistry and they were just too cute together especially at the end. As for supporting, I really didn’t notice them.

Music: I liked it for the drama, very funky and hip for that time.

Rewatch: I wasn’t that into the story so I probably wont be watching this again but I think some people might want to.

Overall this is a light must watch for the OTP.

Happen to watch this on a whim cause I wanted a break from Kdramas and the synopsis sounded right up my alley...

Story: I really really liked it. It wasn't that predictable with a lot of things happening that I wasn't expecting. It also wasn't so much a comedy but there were some silly scenes thrown in, some which took away from the quality story telling. I loved the ending it was perfect.

Acting/Cast: Oh dear I must talk about Roy Chiu first even though he wasn't the first lead. This was my introduction to him and I'll tell you now, he will win your heart so much so that you'll wish the writers did a last minute switch up of the final loveline. His subtle but natural acting out-shined Blue Lan. Speaking of Blue, his acting was so stiff that his character development although written well, was just not believable. He had all these great emotional scenes and none of it reached the level it could have. He did have chemistry with Joe which made for a watchable romance. Joe is one of the better Taiwanese actresses out there but sometimes the overacting her character called for was annoying. For the supporting I have to mention Xiu Jie Kai who I've seen in a lot of T dramas but always makes his characters so loveable.

Music: Very catchy and fitting but they played it way too much!

Rewatch: This isnt really on my got to watch again lists just because I didnt connect with Blue Lan's character but I'd maybe watch to see the story again.

Overall Easy Fortune Happy Life is one of the better Tawiwanese dramas out there but with a better lead actor it could have been amazing.

Miao Miao is a very simple human movie. The plot is very bare but if you like calm movies with a go with the flow type of feel than you might like this. If you like faster paced stuff where things are actually going on to keep you engaged than this is not for you.

I thought the acting was really good and I was invested in the the 3 main characters. I wanted to follow thier stories and know more about their pasts. Surprisingly enough the character who stood out the most was Chen Fei's dead lover who had only flash back scenes. Chris Wu did a great job of making that small role that he had stand out.

There are 2 love lines in this but none developed by the end which made me disappointed. Because of the ending i dont really have an interest in watching this again.

Overall Miao Miao is watchable because its very short and the acting is very good but it wont be a movie you'll remember.

This movie isnt that complicated but i ended up liking it a lot. Its a different kind of romance movie. Kim Min Hee's character is in between her past lover and a new one. Will she choose her crummy cheating boyfriend or the new guy that can offer her a comfy future? Well in the end she makes the best decision for her self which results in a kind of anticlimactic close.

I really liked the casting for this. Kim Min Hee plays her character so raw that you cant help but like her not perfect character. Lee Mi Sook is a vet so all i can say is she played her character perfectly. I liked her relationship with the younger actor, they had good chemistry. As for the guys, I kind of preferred the musician ex for Kim Min Hee cause he was less boring and more energetic on screen than the other guy.

Overall this movie might not be groundbreaking but i like it enough to watch more than once.

This review may contain spoilers
I was excited going into this because Joo Sang Wook was back with another drama and the premise sounded fun as I thought this was going to be a romantic comedy…

Story- The first couple episodes are the child/teen part of the plot. It was unexpected because I had thought this would be a comedy and it was more like the beginning of most melodramas. While confused, I just went along with it because the events that took place made me curious as to how the rest of the drama would play out.

Unfortunately that feeling only lasted till about half way through because things started to get repetitive and predictable by episode 20. Most of the episodes are too emotional and became draggy. It didn’t help that I read spoilers for the last episode and found out it had a crappy ending. That’s why I decided its not worth my time finishing 12 more episodes and just read a recap of the last episode. Really 32 eps is too much for the material.

When it comes to the romance I have mix feelings. I did like that it was unpredictable but the way they handled it made me kind of mad. I don’t want to give anything away but I just have mixed feelings about it.

Acting/Cast- While the acting was phenomenal by all, I had mix feelings about the casting choices. Sung Yuri is a good but not amazing actress. She makes her roles believable but at the same time all her characters feel the same to me. As for Joo Sang Wook, I am so mad at the writers for what they did to his character. They made him so unlikable and kind of pathetic. His character really didn’t provide much to advance the story. It didn’t help that he didn’t have any chemistry with Yuri. However, someone who I seen in a few other drams but hadn’t taken notice of before was Lee Sang Woo. This guy impressed me so much and his character was so memorable. I am glad I watched this drama because I was able to find another actor who im going to keep track of now. The other main actress did an amazing job playing the messed up In Joo. She was a really good villain because she did all these horrible things and yet you still feel sympathetic for her.

Music- It had a good OST that fit the show well.

Rewatch- I didn’t have the motivation to finish it the first time so I cant say id rewatch this although its rewatchable because the story wasn’t boring.

Overall Im kind of disappointed with Feast of the Gods cause it started out really interesting but since I didn’t like the main female character all that much and it was too long this is a drama that is watchable but not enjoyable.
