DNG is the weirdest movie you will ever see!

The story starts off as just another teen comedy but turns into something just completely insane towards the end. I seriously felt like I was on drugs watching this (You'll see what I mean). This movie has teen troubles, a transvestite business Unnie, a Cyclops student, transgendered student, a prostitute student turned dancing video sensation, a man principle turned lady dragon, and plenty of laughs. You will be saying WTF am I watching throughout the entire movie but that's what makes this movie fun to watch.

The cast is mostly unknowns but they managed to make thier roles believable.

Really loved the use of color.

I'd recommend this movie because its funny and out of the ordinary.

This a really great movie. Its interesting to see how each of the 4 couples relationships remain throughout the 2 years that they are separated due to their military service. Couples you expect to stay together, break apart and couples you expect to dissolve surprisingly flourish. I loved the entire cast but especially enjoyed the performance by Jang Hee Jin ( can be seen in Spy Myungwol) because her character was different than what i'm used to seeing from her other roles. My only problem with this movie is not enough Jang Gun Suk lol. No but really this movie is really interesting and has a cool cast of characters. I loved it and will easily watch again!

The story imitates real life. Friendship turns into romance. Basic very straightforward story. It's one of the better realistic dramas. very refreshing actually.

The acting is very natural by everyone. You believe the large group of friends have been friends for a while. They make you want to be a part of their group. The leads had a good romantic chemistry that made you frustrated that they didn't get together sooner.

I'll probably rewatch this a while from now just because the story wasn't too out of the ordinary.

Overall this offers a piece of real life that you will also take a way something from.

First, I wish there were more writers like this one willing to take chances and evoke every emotion out of the audience they can...

Story: Twisty, Unpredictable, fast paced, melo melo melo! I loved that there were so many time jumps and the writer just kept changing the story but in a way that flowed so the viewer could keep up. Be ready for a dark plot all the way to the end filled with tragic romance, obsession, betrayal, revenge, lies, murder, and multiple deaths. The ending is bittersweet but everyone gets a closing fitting to their story.

Acting/Cast: Soo Ae and KSW as the OTP were perfect. They had chemistry which made their unhealthy relationship so painful to watch. Their acting was what you'd expect from A list stars. Just be warned that Soo Ae's character has no redeeming qualities, so you might want to feel like stabbing her in EVERY episode. The other female lead played by Kim Sung Ryung was sympathetic and I kind of wished she got a better ending. Yunho was the weakest link out of the 4 main leads. He was okay but he had zero chemistry with Soo Ae which made their relationship pointless and boring. The supporting cast were amazing and made their characters stand out. Oh yeah and Go Joon Hee really should be getting lead roles soon!

Music: The OST was powerful and fitting of the dark themes. I loved Ice Flower by Ailee and plan on downloading just that song from the OST.

Rewatch: It is a bit long and so dark but just exciting enough to watch again just not for a bit.

Final Thoughts: Queen of Ambition is a dark drama that is not for the light hearted fare lovers. You gotta truly be into melos to enjoy this one like I did!

I had seen all the popular J romance dramas and I wanted to take a break from Korean dramas for a day so I started browsing for a J drama to watch. I didn’t think I’d like this very much because it is an older drama but I read a positive review and decided to give it a chance…

Story- I absolutely loved it! It was so romantic and angsty. It has everything I look for in a good romance drama. I liked that you don’t have to wait for the main couple to start a relationship cause they start from like episode 3. There is a lot of conflict having to do with life choices though that separates them for a couple of episodes. Each episode gives a little cliff hanger which makes you want to see the next episode. The ending was awesome for the main couple but I like that all the supporting characters find their happy ending as well.

Acting/Cast- The 4 leads did a great job. They made their characters very believable. I loved Fujiki Naohito in this because it’s so different from his Hotaru no Hikari character. The main female actress that played his partner didn’t leave a lasting impression on me. I did appreciate that she had really good chemistry with Fujiki.

Music- There is a lot of music played but I didn’t care for it.

Rewatch- I would definitely watch this again in the future when I'm in the mood for a J romance.

Overall Love Revolution is a romance drama for a more mature audience that I definitely would recommend.

History of a Salaryman is the most underrated drama of all time…

Story- I honestly don’t know where to start! The first half of episodes deals with the main character Yoo Bang trying to make it in the business world. Along the way we are taken thorugh hilarious antics while he fails a lot and but starts to succeed by the middle of the drama. During that time the murder mystery gets solved. After that your wondering how are they going to fill the rest of the episodes. Well there is a lot that happens. After Yoo Bang Succeeds he hits a roadblack, succeeds, then falls once again. Basically the theme in this drama is power. Everyone wants it and you get to see what all these characters (good and bad) do to obtain it. I never expected I’d laugh so hard from episode 1 all the way to the very end. I usually never give a 10 for a dramas story because I always find some fault somewhere but seriously this drama is perfect. The ending was the most original I have ever seen in a drama. It definitely keeps in line with the tone of the show.

Acting/Cast- Perfect casting! I like that the writers wrote the characters in a way that everyone’s role was important whether they were a lead or supporting. I loved the 4 leads the most but Jung Gyu Woon really outdid himself acting wise. His character was complex because he was one of the villains but you really can’t hate him for it. It was very interesting to see all these different sides to him. Yeo Chi was another character that I absolutely adored. I loved that they made her a chaebol but not your typical well respected one. She cusses a lot and shouts at everyone but I love that she never hides her emotions. I think her character development was really well written.

Music- the score matched the scenes so well as they helped to heighten the ever-changing moods. The OST was very good but there is this one song that I put on my ipod cause it was so fun and catchy.

Rewatch- I can rewatch this drama once a year because it’s so freaking hilarious.

Overall History of a Salaryman is the most innovative show to come along in a while. It might be a change from your typical preference but if you give it a chance you’ll be in for 22 hours of nonstop entertainment!

I honestly don't know why I started watching Nodame Cantabile just because 1. I dont like classical music and 2. I didnt know who any of the cast was...

Story- It was hilarious but also inspiring. Other than that the plot is pretty ordinary.

Acting/Cast- The acting was perfect. Loved the entire cast because they fit their roles perfectly. I'm a new fan of Tamaki=D

Music- Wonderful score that matched the theme of the show. I wasn't interested in listening to the music outside of the show though. I do have more respect for classical music though after watching this.

Rewatch- Because it was so entertaining and I loved the cast I'd watch this every year.

Overall Nodame Cantabile is different but I'm glad I gave it a chance. Its one of the best J dramas out there. So watch it!

The Musical started off so strong. The first couple episodes were funny and the leads had a good chemistry...

When the characters were actually working on the musical it was very interesting. Then somewhere in the middle the story took several directions. Towards the end it became just very dramatic and there was no focus on musicals. I actually forgot that this drama was called the Musical just because there wasnt that much music. I didn't watch the end but heard it was rushed so I'll probably just read a recap. Still though for most of the time the story kept my interest.

I think the casting was perfect...except for Ko Hye Sun. I think what brought the quality down was her poor singing voice. Also, her character development was poorly written so that plus her awful voice just made it hard to want to root for her. Daniel Choi was perfect in his role. I did like all the supporting characters.

The music was memorable but nothing I'd want to listen to outside the show.

I'm not sure If Id rewatch this or not.

Overall if this drama was written better and casted with a better female lead it would have left a lasting impression but since thats not the case I'd just rate it as being average but worth watching once.

Tazza is not going to be everyone's cup of tea. That's probably why not a lot of people have seen it. However, I'm glad I watched it cause I was able to learn quite a lot...

The story idea didn't interest me in the beginning but as it started getting into the gambling aspect it became very interesting to watch. And then the plot just started to move quickly with twists coming out at every corner. The romance portion is very very light so if your more interested in that then this wont be the drama for you. Revenge is the theme.

The ensemble cast was awesome! Jang Hyuk is love of course but the supporting cast was really really good and stood out. Each minor character plays a large role in Go Ni's master plan. They were quite memorable.

Rewatch- I'd rewatch this in a few years cause i really did love all the characters.

Overall this drama is different but exciting enough. More people should give it a chance.

I don't read manga so I wasn't aware of Switch Girl but the premise seemed interesting enough...

Story- Really the story is nothing original and has been done many times before. Its a school drama with your average villains trying to mess with the leads throughout but becoming good by the end. However, I found it so funny, cute, and the romance was perfectly done (what I would like to see in more J dramas). My only complaint is that is was really too short. There's only 8 eps and thier barely a half hr long. I want more!

Acting/Cast- For the casting, I didnt know much about the lead actors beforehand, but they had awesome chemistry which made me invested in thier romance. I remember the guy that played Arata from Hana Kimi Remake. The impression he gave me right off the bat was he was HOT but not really memorable. In Switch Girl though, I really took notice of him! He was perfect as Arata. I cant wait to see him in more things.The actress who played Nika was soo good as being the switch girl. It was eery how she changed from being the popular school princess to being a nerdy looking slob at home. She convinced me well though.

Music- It was fun and silly when needed.

Rewatch- I could watch this many times over in a year because its short and really funny.

Overall Switch Girl is just a really sweet and fun watch.

I was interested in watching this cause the premise sounded like fun and I'm a fan of both leads…

Story- I liked that the episodes went by fast. With that being said, the story at first is fun when it focused on the development of the main character from a gangster into a teacher. Then towards the second half it’s all about the fight over the kindergarten. This is where it started to lose my attention. Towards the last couple episodes I just had them playing in the background while doing other things. I did like the romance but it really was only a small part of the story. I liked the love triangle of the side teachers & the gangster boss. It has a sweet ending=)

Acting/ Cast- KJW & HJM were perfect as always. They had a good chemistry. I liked most of the supporting cast. The 4 main child actors were sooo cute and their characters were so funny!

Music- The type you’d find in an older drama. It fit the scenes well enough but I didn’t like it.

Rewatch- I liked the characters so I’d watch this again but not for a really long time cause the story wasn’t that memorable.

Overall Great Inheritance is really only a must see if you’re a fan of the leads.

Story- The pace of the show is good. Although the first couple eps may seem a little too slow for some. I wish they would have built the relationship more of Ada & Daichii even if it was their friendship. There was room for improvement. The ending was cute but a little disappointing. There needs to be a special!



Acting/Cast- the acting was good not spectacular, enough to carry the show. The supporting cast was helpful.



Music- I'm not one to really notice the OST unless Im able to get it in my head therefore being memorable so Id say this was an average OST.



Rewatch- Fun & entertaining makes this one to watch again.



Overall- Pretty good J drama that is entertaining.

If this didn’t have ideal casting why did I bother checking it out? TvN tends to produce not boring dramas and Im always on the lookout for a good medical drama…


Story: Often intense but also mixed quite well with humor. Plot wise it hasn’t done anything different Ive seen in all the other medical dramas but I found myself glued to the screen wondering if these two brothers will be able to mend their hostile relationship and also who would end up with who romantically in the end (the romance was VERY light but there is a OTP made clear by the end). So while I did find the romance weak, the writers did a good job establishing an actual plot, while focusing on certain patients and not stuffing several medical cases down our throats like a lot of the medical dramas ive seen tends to do (making it repetitive and causing me to lose interest). The ending is a bit up in the air for one of the characters but all in all i liked it. I think what made the story so enjoyable was the excellent pacing.

Acting/Cast- Ive seen the 3 main actors before but their not on my got to watch their dramas list. However, I came to like the casting choices because the chemistry was there and the acting was solid. The Girls Generation member Soo Young pleasantly surprised me. I didn’t think I would like her (this was her debut an actress) but she really did a phenomenal job playing Eu Jin who had to go through a lot of obstacles. A lot of the plot centered around her character also so if she didn’t make her character believable, the drama could have gone south for me.

Music: Didn’t care for the music but the score was kind of intense.

Rewatch: I wouldn’t mind rewatching because it wasn’t boring, but I don’t really see a reason to watch it again cause im not obsessed with the actors nor was I blown away by the story.

Overall Third Hospital is a very watchable series whether you like medical dramas or not.

I’ve been trying to watch Country Princess for a couple years now but had never been able to find it subbed; it previously became available on Crunchyroll so I decided to watch it right away…

Story: I knew from reading the synopsis it would be an interesting story but I had no idea all the unexpected things that were going to happen. Bae Doona’s character had more than enough of her shared tragedy I’ll tell you that. There was some subtle comedy but it really can be classified as a family melodrama. Now there were some things that I didn’t like about it though. First, the romance was written in a way that had me confused. In the beginning you think she is going to end up with one guy but close to the end you still don’t know which guy she will end up with till the very end. Another thing I didn’t like was the birth secret really didn’t have the closure I was expecting. It gets drawn out to the every end without anything really being solved. As for the ending it was okay but could have been better.

Acting/Cast: I already know Bae Doona is an excellent actress (have seen quite a few of her past works) but she was really perfect as Eun Hee. Now as for her character, she can come off as borderline crazy and sometimes off putting but when you get past all that you will see her as a tough, hardworking family girl that you can root for. The actress that played her Unni was good (not as good as Doona) but I hated her character. I didn’t feel sympathetic for her character in the end and it pisses me off she gets to keep her cushiony life after all the evil things she did to her own sister. As for the guys, they were just okay not really impressive as the girls but they both had chemistry with the ladies. I think the writers screwed up when writing their characters though. At times they were both unlikable and I just didn’t understand some of their decisions. The actress that played the mom was brilliant and although she can be seen as evil, you will feel sympathetic for her character.

Music: Not memorable but I do like that it wasn’t in your face. I hardly remember what was used.

Rewatch: Really liked the story but the characters (except for Eun Hee) wasn’t memorable so I cant say whether id rewatch this or not. It’s a possibility though.

Overall Country Princess is one of the better older dramas I’ve seen, that I would recommend.

I was bored and looking for a romcom cause ive seen all the best ones and I thought this one seemed different...

Story: Kind of have mixed feelings about it. It was very well written because it had a plot and at the same time kept the lightness of usual romcom fare. I also liked that the romance was very simple and straightforward. However I'll be honest and say that the antique crimes setting wasn't the most fascinating and often bored me. Cute simple ending.

Acting/Cast: Kim Sun Ah and Lee Dong Gun are already known to be talented actors but i just loved thier chemistry. It wasnt intense or anything but thier relationship felt very natural which matched the lightness of the drama (it didnt focus heavily on romance).

I thought it was interesting that Kim Jung Hwa played a supporting role when she started out playing main roles in dramas and movies. I dont know but her acting in this was just over the top. It really made her character annoying. I did think her side romance with the Chief was cute. Oh and I cant forget to mention Park Ki Woong who although only had a supporting role as KSA's brother, he managed to play a significant role by the end. He is just an amazing actor so it was nice to see him in this.

Music: Fit the drama but nothing too memorable.

Rewatch: I dont think this is something i have to see again.

Overall if you like light crime dramas then you'll enjoy this, but if your looking for something more engaging id say look elsewhere.
