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.

Hana Kimi Remake wasn't as bad as I thought it would be...

Story- Very different from the original. It is more realistic but I found the plot to be just as interesting. The ending was perfect!

Acting/Cast- The played thier roles well but I just didnt connect with any of the characters. The leads didnt have any chemistry which kind of ruins my wanting them to be together.

Music- same music as original.

Rewatch- I wouldnt mind rewatching this if I actually liked the cast but because I didnt I'd probably just rewatch the original. Although because this story is pretty good, id say its rewatchable.

Waiting in the Dark is a simple movie. The plot is not that complicated and the mystery is pretty much predictable starting in the middle. The story is very slow in the 1st hour, this is due to the lack of dialogue. Be ready for a lot of silence. The acting was very good. I can't really say there's romance but the movie ends with the potential start of something. Overall this movie has just enough to keep you watching till the end.

To be honest the acting outshines the actual plot/story. The story was really good but somehow i didn't find it exceptional. Won Bin really impressed me with his acting. It's like he played two different characters cause in the beginning he is like this quiet/loner pawn shop guy then he turns into tho raging killing lunatic. Both are hot btw=D The little actress was really good too. I liked the supporting characters, they were funny to me. Overall this movie probably could have been more exciting just because the story was a little predictable and the ending was blah. Still the acting is top notch so worth the watch.

This movie was really funny. I sort of lost interest towards the end though only because I wasn't feeling the romance between Kim Ha Naul's character and Kwon Sang Woo's character. But overall this movie is worth watching and is entertaining. Gong Yoo is too much in his role!

The story started off with a bang from the first ep. However, soon after it became a bi polar drama. Its suppose to be a light romance/ comedy but it had episodes that felt like I was watching a melodrama. There were many times I felt confused by the plot or should I say lack there of. As each episode past by I found myself saying okay maybe in the next ep conflict will arise and something big is going to happen. But nothing really happened. They had so many great characters that could have been used to make the plot more interesting but its like the writers brains went blank the entire drama.

The entire cast fit in thier roles well and they all meshed well together. PSH showed off her excellent skills as always. Young Hwa did okay enough with his role but I think if the script was better he could have shown off more of his personality. I feel like his character was one dimensional. Min Hyuk was love. He really outshined his CN Blue buddy. The actor that plays Ki Young is soo talented and I wished he had a larger role within the drama instead of 2 lines per ep.

The OST and score is brilliant. So fresh with the mix of traditional and rock. I also liked FT Islands song that is featured.

There is a great chance Id watch this again because I love the cast and music but im not really in a hurry.

Overall, the drama is a big disappointment story/plot wise but the characters and music will help get you through it.

Story- Suspenseful. Somehow even though the plot is simple, you still want to watch to see what happens in the next episode. The ending was nice. The episode count needed to be shortened to 16.

Acting/Cast- Moon Goon Young was chilling as the evil cinderella. The second female lead is annoying but still likeable. I really felt sorry for her. The male lead is amazing. The supprting cast are all great actors.

Music- Very good songs that make he drama flow.

Rewatch- Id watch this two years from now.

Overall- The phenomenal acting will keep you watching till the end.

Why not watch a romantic drama starring the great Jang Geun Suk??

Story: The first 4 eps take place in the 70s and tells the romance/breakup of the couple (who becomes the older couple in the present storyline 2012). I'll tell you the truth, I did find these eps boring and i was ready to drop but i wanted to see what the present story-line would be like. Well ep 5 happened and i was quite surprised by how light everything was and i found myself watching a romantic comedy instead of a melo (i was quite confused). Well i was intrigued for a few eps after that but then things werent really going anywhere and nothing interesting outside of many tears (now i know why its a melo)that most of the characters shed due to the complicated relationships (Parent romance). This can make anyone become tired after watching the same thing for a while. The ending was the best!

Acting/Cast: Jang Gun Suk definitely is a chameleon and can make me believe any role he takes on. I think the girl from Girls Generation did fine (this is the first thing ive seen her in) but she did have the luck of having chemistry with JGS. I do think any other actress her age could have played the same role and probably better. The supporting cast did an amazing job cause i ended up liking most of the side characters.

Music: I loved the score and the OST fit the drama well.

Rewatch: Honestly if the drama didnt have the great casting and the ending that it did, i probably wouldnt want to watch this again.

Overall Love Rain has a plot that might tire you but its definitely a must watch for Jang Gun Suk, the beautiful cinematography, interesting side characters, and great ending.

Story- I liked that it takes place in a business setting. Many competitions take pace which creates the \"tension\" in the drama. This drama is also about So Yeong\''\''s journey in reaching her dreams. I felt like this drama was too long which made me lose interest towards the end. I skipped like 6 episodes. The last episode was actually one of the best ending episodes Ive seen. It was dramatic in the beginning but was happy & cute and the end.

Acting/Cast- Jang Nara is so cute. She has a small body and small voice. I thought the character fit her well. Daniel Choi did a great job playing the immature Jin Wook. Even till the end he had the childish quality. Even though I liked thier characters, somehow I didn\''\''t feel the romantic chemistry between them. The rest of the cast was great.

Music- Very nice OST to go with the feeling of the scenes. There will probably be some songs to go on my IPod=)

REwatch- This is a cute drama that can be watched again.

Overall- A good romantic comedy to watch at least once.

I was looking for a good Taiwanese drama to watch and decided to watch this since the reviews for it were good and the summary sounded pretty interesting...

Story- It is very dark. Many things bad things happen to the couple in which they must over come it to reach thier happy ending. I loved the romance in this. Although the obstacles they had to face were a bit too many in my opnion. It got tiring after a while. I would have also enjoyed it more if the episodes were cut short by just a little. Loved the complete ending.

Acting/Cast- The actors did a very good job of playing thier characters. Although, I have seen better acting. The leads had an amazing chemistry that made me want to keep watching to see how thier relationship develops. Amazing character development for Vic Zhou's character. He changed from this womanizer who is able to love wholeheartedly his opposite and his love for her is so lovely to see.

Music- Very good OST but I didnt have an interest of listening to it outside of the show.

Rewatch- This was just too tiring at times so while I would like to see this again it would be a while.

To complete this drama you will need patience. Unfortunately for me I am not a person with any so I wasnt able to finish all the eps. i got to ep 29 before I skipped to the last ep. Still, this drama has an interesting plot with good character development. I really like Bae Doo Na as an actress because she is not your typical glamour girl. She brings a certain toughness to all her roles. However, her terrible singing really made her character portrayal of Gloria less believable. Suh Ji Suk is sooo handsome. I liked that his character portrayal really had a good development. He started off as a cold hearted businessman to a man who just wants to love wholeheartedly by supporting Gloria in her dreams. The supporting cast was funny & just great to watch. The music was nice to listen to. I don\''\''t think I can rewatch this cause theres just to many eps and if i did id definitely skip around. Overall if this drama was more like 30 episodes it would have been brilliant. Still worth watching once tho.

Story- Had an interesting start. The writers did a great job of writing Misaki\''s character growth. She matures into a real cabin attendant but still keeps a little part of her rough edge. The romance part as in most J dramas lacked. I feel like there was room for more comedic moments. The end was cute.

Acting/ Cast- The lead female was very fun to watch. The actress did a great job. The supporting cast filled their roles well.

Music- The theme song is a remake of Pretty Woman. A cool rock version. There wasnt too much music in this one.

Overall- A drama to entertain you when your bored. Not one of the best J dramas Ive seen. I didn\''t bother to watch the specials for this one.

The story was well written, hilarious, and melodramatic in the right places. The ending was awesome!

I like LDH and feel like she fit her role perfectly. LDW was very attractive but he can't act! He feels like a statue to me. They also didnt have any chemistry which ruined the romance portion. I liked the second male lead better. The second female lead cant act! I hated her character. The rest of the supporting cast was just okay.

I really liked the music. Fit well with the changing tone of the show.

Average rewatch value just because the cast wasn\''t spectacular.

Overall I really loved this drama because of the writing and the music. It couldve been better with better casting but I would still one of the better older dramas.

I love music themed dramas/movies so I was very interested in watching this. Not to mention Hiro was in the cast so it made me even more excited...

The story... was kind of disappointing. It felt long and I grew bored towards the end. I also disliked the fact we could not hear the singers voice.

The acting...was also disappointing. I did not like Hiro's character that much. I was surprised his English was so good, but yeah his surfer dude accent kind of ruined it. The supporing cast were alright nothing memorable.

I won't waste my time and watch this again...

I like crime drama movies but ones that usually involve romance. I was under the impression that Countdown would be that type of movie...

The plot was fast paced and kept me engaged in what was going on. Its pretty much just watching how the main male character tries to get this crazy con woman to the hospital so he can get his liver transplant (with her as a donator) but then all these things keep getting in the way (some crazy gangsters chasing after them and also a bigtime conman). It kind of seems like a good time right? Well by the end, the story just takes a on a more serious tone and leaves us on a bittersweet note.

One thing I thought the writers did well with, was the character development of the main female character. She was as awful as a conwoman can be but by the experience she has with the main male character, she changes little by little becoming more human. With that being said, I thought the acting was okay by the leads but they didnt impress me enough that I'll remember their characters or anything.

Overall this is good for a one time watch if you like crime drama movies.
