This drama isn't as spectacular as I thought it was going to be. The episodes were only 36 min. but they felt longer just because the story was a little slow at times. I was disappointed, that although the leads were suppose to have this great romance, they only dated briefly before breaking up. Then they spent the rest of the drama a part. So it was kind of hard to feel for them and want them together in the end. I actually liked the stories of the supporting cast much more than the actual romance. The ending could have been done better as well. Still, this is just a great drama to watch when you've seen the better J romance dramas.

I started this one a while back when I was on a Jang Hyuk drama spree. I only managed to watch about half the eps before I lost interest. I didn’t plan on dropping it though because I knew I wanted to finish it someday…

Story: One of the first romcoms to be labeled as such, it comes with all the laughs and romance one would expect. It did have a nice plot which was an added surprise. The story is mostly about how the main male character changes from a rich douchebag to a poor guy with a purpose. The first half of the drama is the developing romance and the downfall of the male lead. Then in the second half (after a time jump) it kind of turns into an office drama with the bad guys competing with the good guys. The ending was very cute.

Acting/Cast: Jang Hyuk was awesome but his character was crazy! Like he just goes nuts and starts randomly punching things around him or yelling out of nowehere quite often. He was quite interesting though. Jang Nara matched him very well chemistry wise and I loved her character because she was strong and could handle his wild temperament. The only thing I didn’t like about her character is her accent. It was just too much. As for Ryu Soo Young (My Princess, Ojakgyo Brothers) it was so weird seeing him play the villain. But he played a very good one. As for the rest of the cast I didn’t find their characters that important.

Music: Very old school but I guess it went well with this drama because it is very old!

Rewatch: I liked it so I would watch it sometime in the future.

Overall Successful Bright Girl is impressive for an older drama.

I wasn’t planning on watching this cause I wasn’t that impressed by the casting but it was added to Dramafever and I happen to check out the reviews, which were surprisingly positive…

Story- Your average predictable romcom. However there is enough that goes on to keep you watching without getting bored/wanting to skip eps. I did find the setting of a divorce matchmaking office/divorce law office refreshing and the different cases the female took on were interesting as well.

Acting/Cast- I was really impressed by the lead actress. I had never seen anything with her before but her acting was very natural and she made her character extremely likable. The lead actor was the same in other roles I had seen him in (stiff). I wasn’t into his character because he was just too bland/boring. I did appreciate that there was chemistry between the leads though. I really liked the supporting cast and I enjoyed watching the side character’s stories.

Music- It was good but not memorable.

Rewatch- This is something I could definitely watch again but not for a while.

Overall Love Marriage is simple but the main female character and all the side characters make it an enjoyable.

You know it's hard to give a review when I don't even know what the movie is about even after watching it. The way the scenes were put together were so choppy and made following the story very difficult! That being said, I did somehow enjoy watching the movie and never found myself bored. The acting was fantastic by everyone but especially Bae Soo Bin and Kim Byul. Their characters were very strange so they managed to pull it off really well. Although I didn't like the unpredictable ending, Id still watch this again cause i love the cast.

At first I thought this drama would be boring because of the theme but it turned out be interesting enough. This is one of those dramas that is more about teaching life lessons. I was more interested in the relationship with the main girl and the actor boy. I did like most of the cast. Overall it is a very good watch but I wanted more from the ending.

I’ve seen the main actress in a lot of things and really like most of the characters she’s played. The premise also sounded like this drama might be a lot of fun so I wanted to give this a try even though I didn’t know who the male leads were…

Story- The first episode had potential so I was excited to watch the rest of the episodes but they turned out to be just average writing. It’s your typical predictable romcom but they kind of let me down with the entertainment theme cause they could’ve did more with it. The romance was a letdown also with an ending that had no resolution and basically brings our heroine back to square one.

Acting/Cast- So Yi Hyun basically carried the show. Her character was awesome and just so magnetic. As for the male leads their acting was passable but they just weren’t able to get me to care about their characters. The supporting cast was good enough but their characters were forgettable.

Music- I actually ended up liking the OST and will download when I get the chance.

Rewatch- Since the story wasn’t boring it’s rewatchable but I have no intentions of watching it a second time.

Overall while Glowing She wasn’t boring or anything it’s one of those dramas that had potential but fell flat. You won’t remember it down the line.

This movie is truly unpredictable! I had no idea what was going on in the last half hour. The story is really messed up but it always kept me watching. Very interesting topic covered.

The acting was really well done by everyone especially the crazy Seh Hee/See Hee.

This is one of those movies that makes you think. The end is a WTF just happened. I didn\''t really understand but it was still an interesting movie so I\''d recommend it.

I really liked this movie! It was funny, angsty and had a good plot. I thought the whole movie would be just about dancing but was surprised to find that a development of a romance was a large part of the plot. There were some parts that did feel a little slow. The movie ended on a nice note.

I liked the leads and even with their large age gap they managed to convince me that their characters loved each other. Props to MGY who showed off excellent dancing skills. I can tell she had to work her butt off filming this movie.

I know I'll be watching this again in the future, just not right away.

I dont even know why I started watching this show because I dont like sports. I mean the only person I knew from the cast is UEE but I didnt even like her character in Your Beautiful. But for some reason I wanted to see if her acting was any different...

Story- UNPREDICTABLE. The story starts off slow (not to the point of being bored) and is too focused on the character of Hae Ryung (not UEE's character)but by episode 10 things start to pick up and become super interesting because it focuses on UEE's character. The last episode made me want to rip my hair out. The ending kept in line with the unpredictable theme. Its probably the worst ending Ive ever seen in my life! Seriously if it werent for the first 23 eps having solid writing i would have rated the story lower just because of the sorry ending.

Acting- UEE can act her butt off! She changed my opinion of her (hated her in YB). The rest of the cast all made thier characters believable. I really despised the character of Hae Ryung though (very pathetic and no character development until the last ep.)

Music- Nice enough music that was memorable but nothing that i would be obsessed with.

Rewatch- If it werent for the ending Id probably would have rewatched it in 2 yrs or so but i have no wish to rewatch this drama, although it is at least rewatchable.

Overall this drama had huge potential but the lack of a believable romance and the nonsensical ending really ruined the good feelings i had about this show throughout its run. I'd still recommend this drama though because the writing is good and the acting is very good.

I wasn't really looking forward to watching Can You Hear My Heart just because the summary made it sound like it was going to be really weird/boring. But I love Hwang Jung Eum & Nam Goong Min and read positive reviews for it so decided I would try the first episode out...

Story- the first few episodes told the child stories. Normally I’ll fast forward through these because I don’t have the patience but I found the story compelling already. By the time the time the adult characters come on you are already immersed into the story and wanting to see how these damaged characters grew up and how they come together. This drama made me laugh and cry. The ending was just perfect=)

Acting/Cast- The acting was perfect by everyone. I am a new fan of Kim Jae Won! He portrayed his deaf character so well. Really spectacular acting by NGM. His character had so many layers and he was able to portray his complex character so well that I was able to feel Maru’s pain.

Music- Lovely score.

Rewatch- I’d watch this again in 2 years. That will give me enough time to forget a lot that happened. I loved the cast so i would want to see this again sooner than later.

Overall for a drama that is 30 eps, it is worth the watch because it’s so well written and acted.

Shocked that this drama has such a low rating. It wasn't the best drama but it was pretty good. Most of the episodes were silly but funny. I loved the friendship between Lily and Ana. Lily is such an oddball but thats her charm. I wish she had a little more character development. The lead male is super hot but he is wishywashy when it comes to his feelings for Lily. The ending is really weird. Wish there was a more realistic. This drama is entertaining but the romance part is lacking. Still I enjoyed the cast so I would like to see this again someday.

Wow so a family drama with not so popular actors and a dull sounding synopsis, its not a wonder why this drama isn’t on anyone’s radar…

Story: First, everything about the drama after the first sentence of the synopsis is misleading. In fact it just gives a summary of the main female characters background (everything that happens to her before the time that the drama takes place). Everything that happened during the dramas run was so unpredictable, which I never expect from family themes dramas. I don’t want to give anything away but be prepared for a ton of drama. What I liked most about it though was the fact that the writers balanced the funny scenes with the emotional stuff really well. I laughed a lot in the beginning but by the last few episodes towards the end it gets pretty heavy making me shed many tears. I just wanted to add that there is romance in this but its very subtle and not the focal point of the story. The ending is sad, happy, and hopeful all in one if that makes sense.

Actors/Cast: This was an ensemble cast where all the characters get a chance to shine even if they only had small roles. When it comes to the 2 female leads, I had never seen anything they had acted in before but wow you can tell they are veterans. They gave powerful performances. Anyone who has ever heard of Shin Hyun Joon (Stairway to Heaven, Cain and Abel, Bridal Mask) will know what an amazing (and underrated in my opinion) actor he is but wow his character in this was so unexpectedly different than any of his characters. As for the supporting cast, they made their characters memorable and the villains did a tremendous job of me hating them but also feeling pity for them by the end.

Music: They did a pretty good job with matching the changing tone of the show.

Rewatch: I will rewatch this one day sometime soon but not right away cause this drama is pretty heavy.

Overall Dummy Mommy is an unexpected but heartwarming and enjoyable must watch family drama.

Story- Nothing special here folks. you got the love quaddrangle, pathetic girl becoming obsessed with guy, guy in love with other girl, then guy later hiding his true feelings for pathetic girl for the longest time. Ending is blah.

Acting/Cast- I was intrigued by the casting but in the end the way the writers wrote the characters just made me lose interest. The chemistry was there between the leads but it was wasted. I thought the casting for the second female lead was all wrong. She wasn't as pretty as Han Chae Young so it was hard to believe that both male leads would pick her over HCY's character.

Music- It had a couple of nice songs but it wasnt too memorable.

There's no way i'd rewatch this!

Overall- this drama had some funny moments but with the average storyline and ending, this should only be watched when all the best dramas out there have been watched already.

When I first heard of Can We Get Married, the synopsis didn't appeal to me, but then I found out Sung Joon & Jung So Min were in it so I decided to give the first Ep. a try…

Story: There isn't really an exciting plot so if that’s what your looking for don’t even bother. Instead, you’ll find a realistic portrayal of what couples in different stages of their relationship go through ie. engagement/planning wedding, marriage on the rocks/divorce, long term relationship/commitment problems. I loved the ending so much because each couple got their ending that suited them (not everyone reconciles or marries).

Acting/Cast: If this wasn't casted the way it was, I don’t think I would have been as obsessed with this show. All the actors (Main & supporting) portrayed their roles perfectly making their character seem like they could be a real person living out their situations. There are some characters that might seem annoying like the girls’ mom and JSM’s character but if you come to accept who they are you’ll find them likable in their own way. The thing that made the casting so perfect is the chemistry. The chemistry between the all the families was perfect, each family felt like they were related in real life, not just acting. Each couple had amazing chemistry that made you root for them. There are so many characters in this drama and I loved each one because even smaller characters got their time to shine. Oh and what makes them so interesting is most of the characters in this drama are flawed like you wont believe which is something you don’t see in Korean dramas.

Music: Not anything to get excited over but it did fit the drama well.

Rewatch: I already want to watch this again because I miss the characters and also the pacing is so well done its easy to rewatch over and over again.

Overall Can We Get Married is one of those realistic dramas with flawed but interesting characters that will make you root for them.

I just happened to come across this drama a few months ago while searching for a good J drama to watch cause I hadn't seen one in a while...I was only able to finish it recently cause the rest of the eps finally got subbed=)

Story- The story was simple but never boring. The first part deals with bullying but most of the plot is just the trials that the couple faces in order to stay intact. I found myself becoming too into the romance between the leads. A lot of the scenes they had together were awkward in a good way, they made me laugh because it really was cute. I liked how they came together as friends first because they had something in common (they wanted to escape from their reality). The Kingyo Club is the place where they could that. I even wanted to be a part of their club too! lol. The ending is sweet.

Acting/Cast- Most of the cast is newbies which really surprised me. The acting was very natural which I'm not used to seeing in J dramas. The leads were phenomenal and had an amazing chemistry. They really made the cutest couple ever. The supporting cast all played thier roles well. The villains were villainy but you still felt sympathetic for them.

Music- Fit the scenes well but nothing I'd listen to outside the show.

Rewatch- This drama is short and I loved the leads so I definitely could rewatch this every year.

Overall Kingyo Club might be simple but its a very memorable piece.
