First, I didn't think this was as bad as everyone is making it out to be...

Story: In the beginning I wasn't sure how the story would go or end up and yes it was predictable but I did like the romance plot of it. The episodes are super short so it makes for an easy watch. I was disappointed by the ending and found it a bit confusing.

Acting/Cast: I liked he entire cast and thought everyone fit and the chemistry between the 2 girls as friends were great adn the chemistry between the romantic leads were great as well. With that being said, the acting was awful. I was disapointed by Aya and Yuta who I've found charming in other roles. The breakout I would have to say was the actress that played Komachi(the other vamipire girl). She was very convincing and found her emotions to be real. I liked the supporting characters.

Music: The opening credits was too long and the song was annoyingly catchy.

Rewatch: The pacing is quick and the romance is nice so its rewatchble a long time from now if needed.

Overall, its a short love story between a vampire and a human but also a friendship story between 2 vampire girls and their adventure into the human world so if you expect anything more I'd say skip it.

Well I did it...I managed to finish it! It did take me a couple months...

Story: Even though it has familiar themes such as hotel setting, rivalry for power, baking, birth secret, jealous ex gf you want to punch etc. the writer did a great job of keeping each episode well paced, which made me want to keep watching. The ending is wrapped in a nicely neat bow for those who care;)The last 20 episodes felt dragged out though, that's pretty much the only critique for the story.

Acting/Characters: The acting was spot on for all the characters. Well except Lee Jang Woo who I can't seem to like in anything. It doesn't help that his character is a spoiled whiny chaebol who blames everyone else for all his "problems." The actress who played Saewa was really great with her character because I cringed every time her character came on, probably the most annoying character I've seen in a drama ever (and I've seen a lot!). My favorite characters were Sae Young & Tae Hoon Oppa(Alex). They were too funny and cute! As for the lead couple most of the time I felt like they had more of a cute chemistry meant for friends. I really like the lead actress though (saw her in King of Dramas first, really different characters). I forgot to mention the actress who played the mentally handicapped mother Anna. Excellent acting although her character got annoying towards the end as well...

Music: Not a lot of it, and not memorable either. It's to be expected though cause most daily dramas don't incorporate music.

Rewatch: It's rewatchable but I don't know when I'll have the time to sit through all those episodes again. I also don't care to watch all the annoying characters again so there's that...

Overall Smile, Dong Hae is worth a watch if you like family themed shows with a happy ending. It is possible to finish...if you dare!

I watched half, gave up, then had it on hold for a really long time. Why you ask? Probably due to all the angst…

Story: In the first half, you get to see the relationship develop between the two leads. It’s very funny, sweet, and definitely romantic. Then about half way the tone changes, and there’s a time jump of 3 years. After that the rest of the drama is just filled with angst and conflict due to the female lead’s dad that building up to a lovely ending.

Acting/Cast: First time seeing the two leads. Wilber Pan is a good actor but there were plenty of times he overacted in his “dramatic” scenes. It became distracting because instead of feeling for him I just thought how he could have made the scene more real if he had a more subtle crying style. As for the lead actress, she was amazing! I was stunned how she could play this bratty heiress (I hated her character in the beginning) and later on change dramatically to the point where Im rooting for her and like her character more than the male lead. Her and Wilber had a really really good chemistry. I just wanted to mention the second lead actress did a horrible acting job and even though her character could come off as likable, the way the actress portrayed her was just awful. I really liked the second lead actor and his character. I also ended up liking the rest of the supporting characters.

Music: It was okay. Nothing that made me take notice.

Rewatch: I would watch this again because it had good pacing and a great ending.

Final Thoughts: If you like angsty romance dramas with amazing chemistry between the leads, then I would recommend Endless Love.

Although the only cast member I knew was Blue Lan, I wanted to watch this cause the synopsis seemed fun…

Story: Not so predictable romance in a cosmetics industry setting. Competition is the main theme when it comes to work and love. The ending could have been better considering they had a whole episode to convince me why the female lead character chose who she chose and I just didn’t buy her reasoning, although I would have chose the same guy. Yes I also agree they could have done more with the plot but I was never bored.

Acting/Cast: When it comes to the acting, yet again was Blue Lan serviceable. I feel in every role he does, he seems bored due to his rolling eyes and lack of expressions. Nick Chou is a new actor so I expect serviceable acting but not from Blue who has been around. I think the lead actress did a really good job with her character who was annoying at first but has great character development and becomes someone you root for. Although, the writers made a mistake with her indecisiveness traits when it comes to hern her romances. The second female lead cant act and all her crying scenes were horrible. I liked the rest of the characters although their acting was just okay.

Music: Really really good. Im going to download it cause it was too catchy.

Rewatch: I liked it so I would watch it again once day.

Overall: I Love You So Much is a Taiwanese drama I recommend that isn’t boring or draggy and has a great OST.

History of a Salaryman is one of my Top 5 favorite K dramas ever so I was excited to see another drama from the writers…

Story: The plot had good pacing and twists that made it hard to get bored. The romance was minimal but I kind of expected it due to that being the writers’ style. I think the story lacked more wackiness. I was expecting more laughs, which we didn’t get. I loved the ending!!

Acting/Cast: I don’t know what it is but I haven’t liked any Kang Ji Hwan led dramas. His characters always end up pissing me off in some way. However, he is a solid actor and he pulled off his character well in this. He also had a subtle but cute chemistry with Hwang Jung Eum, who I think needs to change it up because I feel like this character is something shes played before (and the hair!). Her character though wasn’t really incorporated into the plot very well. It felt like she was just there in the background as the token love interest. Because of that, I think it was hard for me to connect with her character. The two characters whom I found most interesting and I sympathized with happened to be the villains. Oh Yoon Ah and Park Sang Min were perfect. As for the supporting characters, there were just too many of them and took away from the mains screen time. The overall chemistry of the cast could have been better in my opinion.

Music: Kind of disappointed cause I loved the Salaryman OST, but in this the music was barely used in a way it would be memorable.

Rewatch: Its rewatchable because of the engaging story but Im not interested in seeing it again just because I didn’t love the characters.

Final thoughts: Didn’t hate it or love it. I dont really think this drama will be memorable in the future for me.

Wow did this take me a long time to finish...


Story: A typical revenge themed drama with a bit of romance thrown in there. The plot was very good in the beginning, dragged in the middle, and got good again by the third part. The pacing of each episode was okay but as a whole the drama felt way too long and it could have been so much more enjoyable if it was only 16-18 eps. I liked the ending because it was kind of open ended but you knew where everything was headed.

Acting/Cast: Uhm Tae Woong and Han Ji Min were amazing as usual but I loved their chemistry as well. I enjoyed the supporting characters and all the actors played their parts well. The drama however, could have did without Go Joo Won or even his character. His acting was bland and it made his character not charming or sympathetic.

Music: Overplayed but fit.

Rewatch: I liked most of the characters a lot that I might one day in the far away future sit through this again. Wish the drama was shorter though!

Final Thoughts: Revenge could have been a lot more exciting within the plot and tighter with a shorter episode count but its worth watching at least once if you like the main actors and revenge themed dramas.

It took me 3 tries before I made it past the first 2 episodes. I recently was bored enough to give another go because I wanted something funny to watch...

Story: Just realistic portrayals of relationships. The main OTP doesnt even interact that much until almost the end so that was kind of a bummer. I didnt like the open ending.

Acting/Cast: I already have seen the lead actor and actress before so I know they can act well but I loved their chemistry. Just wished they had more scenes together. The actress that played Min Ae cant act and it didnt help that her character was a b*tch the whole time. The actress that played Yu Jin has the most annoying voice ever and her character was so unlikable! I really wanted to fast forward all her scenes which unfortunately she has a lot of. I really liked the other supporting characters!

Music: All indie which is a genre Im into so Ill definitely be downloading the OST when I get the chance.

Rewatch: There isnt a point really to watch this again since the ending isnt all that great.

Final Thoughts: Soulmate isn't boring, has a lot of interesting characters, and a cool OST but its not something that has to be watched unless you have time to spare.

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 wasn't planning on watching Hotelier just because it was so old and none of the mains were actors I was that interested in. However, Ive seen most of the best dramas out there and out of desperation I resorted to giving the first ep a try...

Story: Hotel politics and romances= nothing new but it had great pacing, which is key to keeping me engaged. Great ending!

Acting/Cast: So I'm going to start with Bae Yong Jun who plays Frank. Ive heard so many things about this actor and did find him attractive in his small bit in Dream High, but his acting in this was quite disappointing. He had no charisma, and I never managed to connect with his character, therefore rooting for the female lead to be with the other male lead. The rest of the three leads, who I am familiar with all were great as I expected them to be. I really liked all the supporting characters, they made the drama much more enjoyable.

Music: What you would expect from an oldie.

Rewatch: I had a good time watching this so I wouldnt ming rewatching again sometime in the near future.

Overall, Hotelier might be old but its one of the better dramas out there.

A drama starring Kim Bum (the only highlight of BOF) as first lead, who wouldnt want to give this a try...

Story: Its realistic and simple. Themes that are discussed: Older woman/younger man romance, friendships and their lovelines, and finding career success. Really these are themes that have been done in other dramas but the writers had good pacing. The ending could have been a little more specific.

Acting/Cast: I enjoyed Park Jin Hee's performance in Kimchi Family, so I knew what to expect from her but I was suprised by how good the chemistry was between her and Kim Bum. I think KB was a bit miscast though, because although he was playing a 24 year old, he looked like he was still in high school so some scenes were a bit awkward with him and the main female character. Some of the supporting characters I could of did without.

Music: Not really memorable but alright for the drama.

Rewatch: It could be watched a gain if you like these type of stories.

Overall, The Woman Who Still Want to Marry is a cleaner version of Sex and the City so if you liked that show you might enjoy this.

Invincible Lee Pyung Kang wasn’t particularly a drama I felt I needed to watch just because the casting didn’t attract me and the synopsis seemed like the same ole same ole but I was looking for something light to watch and to pass the time…

Story: Pretty much a standard workplace drama set in a hotel resort with rivalry ownership/competition as the main focus, and it kind of reminds me of Ji Hun Woo’s other drama Birth of the Rich but less dramatic. The romance could’ve been written better because for most of the drama the main character is in love with his childhood crush and towards the end he just happens to do a 180 and falls for the main female character (I prefer straightforward romances).

Acting/Cast: Now I went into this knowing what to expect from JHW just because I’ve happened to dabble in some of his other dramas (never managing to finish them due to crappy stories) so all I can say is he was serviceable but his character was just one I didn’t connect with. He also had no romantic chemistry with Nam Sang Mi, who is an actress I had never seen before but found her character extremely annoying (her fake laugh made me want to punch her at times). I found the second leads more sympathetic and more real.

Music: Fit the drama perfectly and some were catchy.

Rewatch: I don’t see why anyone would want to watch it again unless you’re a fan of the leads.

Overall, Invincible Lee Pyung Kang is standard fare and should only be watched when you really have nothing to watch.

I'm not a crime drama fan in the least but I thought I'd branch out cause I like the main actors...

The plot is well written and paced; straight up police themed. It does have a love-line, but it just consists of sparingly scenes sprinkled throughout. The story itself is something I've seen too many times in American crime drama shows so it made it hard to keep watching cause I got bored.

The acting by the leads was exceptional as to be expected, their huge acting talents in the movie world. Their chemistry was just right for their character types. I wasnt really captivated by the supporting characters so I didnt feel attach to them.

Overall if you like crime/police themed shows you might appreciate H.I.T. more than I did.

I’m not an avid historicals watcher but the fact that it had a large main cast of actors I like definitely got me curious enough to try out the first couple eps…

Story: It was like I was watching three different dramas because the plot changed so much and there were many time jumps. The first part is about Ji Sang growing up meeting both his loves and discovering he is a Seer. The second part is romance, political war, and the journey of Lee Sung Gye to be come King. The last part is tragedy central and the eventual crowning of Lee Sung Gye. The ending is bittersweet so expect both sad and happy endings for our main characters.

Acting: I'm going to start with our 3 male leads since they got the most screen time compared to the gals. Ji Jin Hee mostly has played stiff characters from the dramas I’ve seen but I got to say you haven’t seen him play a character like Lee Sung Gye. His character development was so awesome as he starts off as what seems like a crazy lunatic eventually becoming what you’d expect from the King of Joseon. I’ve only seen Ji Sung in Protect the Boss but he plays a different character in this. He did a great job portraying his character that experiences different personality changes from playful to serious/dramatic due to circumstances. Song Chang Ui played the villain well and his chemistry with Lee Yoon Ji was so great that I was rooting for their characters to get together and find their own happiness. As for the 2 female leads, they were perfect, as I would expect from them. There were MANY supporting characters and they all were able to make their characters stand out because a lot of them came and went as the plot kept changing, I found myself wondering what happened to them or I felt bad when their character was killed off.

Music: What you would expect from a historical drama but nothing particularly memorable.

Rewatch: I wouldn’t mind watching this again cause the plot was fresh but not for a while cause the drama is long and it was kind of sad.

Overall whether you like historicals or not the Great Seer will not waste your time and it’s a very intriguing ride.

The fact that I adore Moon Geun Young and Park Shi Hoo, in addition to being a romcom made Cheondamdong Alice a must watch for me…

Story: The first couple eps were a bit funny and there was a good paced plot but shortly before the half way mark the plot kind of fizzles and everything became slow paced causing me to push myself to finish an episode. Even though most romcoms don’t have a plot, they will push the laughs for entertainment purposes but this one didn’t even have that. The ending was nice at least.

Acting/Cast: MGY and PSH were amazing as expected. However, I think the writers could have written Se Kyung better because her flat character didn’t give MGY very much to work with expressionwise. I don’t think its her fault because her character was too intense and she was able to service that. I liked all the supporting characters but once again Kim Ji Suk failed to make his second lead stand out. I just wanted to add that chemistrywise, I didn’t feel that intensity between the leads. It might be that MGY looked like a kid the entire drama to me.

Music: I liked most of the songs and will be downloading them to my ipod=)

Rewatch: I didn’t really care about the OTP, the boring story, and the fact I skipped 4 eps the first time doesn’t make this something Ill be torturing myself to watch again.

Overall I really don’t recommend this even if you’re the biggest fans of the leads cause its just a waste of time.

I like the writer’s past work, Yoon Eun Hee as an actress, and I was curious if Yoochun could win me over (haven’t liked any of his characters)…

Story: I actually think the writer had a solid plot. It’s a bit darker than what I expected but twisty stories are up my alley. The writer’s downfall is a slow moving plot. An episode count of 16 would have made for a fast paced plot. I loved the surprise ending!

Acting/Cast: Wow did Yoochun really impress! His character was my favorite in this drama and has made it in my top 5 favorite drama characters of all time. Yoon Eun Hye did not disappoint but the way her character was written didn’t sit well with me. Her character was too depressing and in the beginning really unlikable. Yoo Seung Ho was brilliant for being the youngest main actor, being able to keep up with the vets. As for the supporting they all did a great job.

Music: It was what you would expect from a melo but nothing memorable.

Rewatch: I would consider watching this again because of the ending and my love for Jung Woo, but not for a while because this drama was too depressing to watch.

Overall if you like melodramas with amazing acting and a good ending Id recommend this.
