Yeah I totally loved this drama. I don't think I will ever be able to get over how powerful this drama was and how emotional this drama made me. The only character that I thought was lacking was Mok Dan. I thought her character was just a link b/t the past and the present for Kang To. She was also a link b/t Bridal Mask & the freedom fighters. The romance part didn't rly affect the story much except w/ Shunji, & all that emotion was a given. Overall I thought this was 1 of the best drama's this season & will be placed on my top 10.

Wow I don't think there was an episode that I watch were I wasn't pissed. The last episode was the best of them all. I don't rly know what to say about it w/o telling every1 what happened & y I was mad the whole time. I am going to try to explain.

The character Da Hae, even though I know she didn't mean for everything that happened to happen, was just evil. I know she felt remorse for certain things (u will only understand if u watch), but she still continued to make choices that were selfish & evil (the only word I can think of to describe it).

The character Ha Ryu was just too sweet. I know he did the whole revenge thing, but that wasn't his motive. It was more along the lines of making ppl pay for what they did. If u ask me all his actions were totally justified, but I still think that he was too sweet for his own good.

The other characters were awesome. Each character was necessary and the actors that played them did such a good job.

I have to say that this drama kinda blew me away, but b/c I had such an angry feeling most of the time I had to give it lower scores. I don't feel that anger is a good way to feel entertained. But b/c I was so invested in each character I had to continue to watch till the end. I am glad I did b/c the ending left me w/ happy & sorrowful feelings. It was appropriate for the drama. Don't go into this drama thinking that you're going to come out all sunshine & roses, b/c that is so far from this drama. I suggest only those that can handle a serious melodrama should watch this, b/c it is like no joke.

I love life after death stories, & this was a really good story about that issue. Do u want to move on to the next world or stay in this 1? Do u have a reason to stay? Those r questions that r answered in this movie. The dark essence of love & the need to always be w/ the 1 u love is a exceptionally well expressed theme in this movie. I loved the music. I will be looking it up to dl to my mp3. I will watch this movie again. Enjoy !~)

I watched this b/c my sister suggested it. If I had found it 1st I would have told her to watch it. This was such a touching story of how music can connect ppl. I rly wish they would have actually gave us a voice to listen to that came from Koyuki. The fact that every1 was stunned by his voice made me want to hear it, but that does not take away from the story. I rly enjoyed the blend of music & that they didn't just spotlight 1 genre. I will 4-sure watch this movie again, but it not only left me w/ good feelings but I love the actors. I loved that Hiro is all about the fluent English. I wonder if they all rly can play their instruments. Despite that pondering of mine, I was excited to watch something that focused on music that the ppl actually played. I love bands that show their talent. It makes u feel special just being around them.

This was a rly good story. I enjoyed the chemistry b/t the 2 leads. I loved how the story b/t the leads drew me into their lives. I loved how Dal Ja was so innocent at her age. Most ppl @ that age r so jaded & resentful that it is hard to see what is positive in life for them. Just like her friend Wee Seon Joo. I personally believe that we should consider ourselves w/e age we feel we r despite how many yrs we have been alive. I rly think that when u watch this drama you will connect w/ it in some way b/c so many things happen that r real. Enjoy!

This drama had a good story & the acting was really spot on. I enjoyed it & was left with a good warm feeling in the end. But this is not the best drama that I have ever watched. It explored things that r strong issues, but it didn't make them a huge issue like other dramas I've watched. I enjoyed the relationship b/t the 2 leads. It had a realistic feeling 2 it. Good drama can't wait 2 see the next 1 that is in this "school life" series.

So it took me a couple of days to finish this drama. I have to say I really enjoyed it. I thought the story line was well done & that all the main characters had good chemistry. I liked that it was a well written mix of comedy and romance. I have to say that the only draw back for me was having to listen to them "smack" their food while they ate. Noises like that just grate on my nerves. I understood what they were trying to do by putting those parts in there, but it still drove me crazy enough that I had to mute it while the were eating sometimes.

The main characters did an excellent job of acting out their characters parts. I thought the main couple was cute as well as all the characters.

I rly didn't pay attention to the music which is usual for me unless it is amazing.

I will prolly watch this again in the future especially when I want to look up interesting food.

Overall it was a good drama & I recommend others watch it.

While watching this drama I thought that this was some strange attempt to mimic the comedy of jdramas & tdramas. I was very confused. At times I was a little blown away w/ how serious the situations were meant to be. It kinda felt like they solved a problem then they decided to move on to the next one. I thought that the whole "story within a story" plot was a little interesting. It was a little strange that her story went in the same direction as the story she was writing for her internet novel. Like she alrdy knew subconsciously. Oh well, It was rly just a weird drama all around.

OK So this drama got a 10 b/c of the ending. EPIC ending. I actually heard so much from Unnie about this drama being a rly bad drama, but I'm not so sure we were watching the same drama. I thought it was pretty good. Of course there r some issues, but that comes w/ the fact that it was done in 2004. Other than the crappy set & the annoying supporting actors (i.e. Soo Jung's brother, money stealing ex-boss, & best friend) I liked it.

No, this drama will never be 1 of my all time faves, but I enjoyed watching it. I enjoyed the fact that these actors (that I love) So Ji Sub, Ha Ji Won, & Jo In Sung confirmed that they are great actors & not just "Eye Candy." The ending was the best ever. Whoever came up w/ that ending was a genius, b/c it gave an ending to all sides of the conflict.

I was slightly upset that Ha Ji Won had to play a cry-baby, indecisive character, b/c to me she is just much stronger than they let her be in this drama.

So Ji Sub blew me away. I mean who do u know that can be as silent as he is in this drama, but still show so much emotion that u know what he is feeling the whole time? NO1! He is an amazing actor & I will forever watch anything & everything he is ever in (if I can find it subbed).

Jo In Sung is like amazing. I wanted to cry & go crazy w/ him through this whole drama. I felt bad for him the whole time b/c of his family life. Which kinda reminded me of Lee Je Hoon's character in Fashion King. I actually wanted him to get the girl even though he was a giant Scott (South Park Reference).

Overall I liked the drama & think that others should give it a try. It isn't as much torture as I anticipated, except that is is older & it reminds me of the 80's. ENJOY!

OK I have to admit that I only watched this b/c my sister keeps saying that Song Ji Hyo is beautiful & she knows this b/c she saw her naked...LOL!

Despite the porn-esk scenes, I actually enjoyed it. I have my own thoughts about certain characters & lots of ppl will prolly disagree w/ me, but I am going to share anyway. I may confuse some & a light may go off over their head for others.

So, I totally thought that the King (Joo Jin Mo) was a child-molester. He sounds like a predator of the classic kind. He gathered up a group of little boys & picked the 1 that he liked the most. He then treated him to lots of goodies, but made sure that he understood who was in charge. He tried to make it out like it was a "love" type of relationship as they got older. BUT, the way I see it; he totally had Hong Rim traumatized & too scared to try to leave. He even showed his strength by making sure Hong Rim knew he could never beat him in a fight. It is a classic fear technique. I thought Hong Rim showed Stockholm syndrome (a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy, sympathy and have positive feelings towards their captors, sometimes to the point of defending them). I totally thought Stockholm's when he showed his concern for the King after he got hurt & when he told the Queen he was afraid. This is the relationship I saw that was confirmed by the jealousy of the king along w/ the perfect ending statement from Hong Rim.

To me this drama was a wonderful expression of psychological disorders. I enjoyed interpreting the behavior of all parties involved. I thought the actors expression of their characters were realistic and believable. I also thought that the ending confirmed all my deductions of each characters psychological state that was expressed through their behavior.

Not every1 is going to enjoy this drama like I did. Or at least not in the same way I did. It may make you feel uncomfortable, b/c it is very graphic during the sex scenes (my face totally turned red). Once u get past all that the story becomes a very, very tragic love story.

This is one of those "feel good" drama's. It is just what u would expect from the beginning to the end. The fact that every1 is happy at the end is like totally expected.

I enjoyed this drama even though it is not like a personal fave b/c there r several other drama's that I have watched that rank so much higher.

But, I can tell you I will watch more of Kim Sun Ah. I enjoyed her acting. She gave off the exact vibe a person would have if they were alone & the difficult transition to being part of a family that she didn't plan. She made her character seem real to me. The fact that she only showed emotion to the 1 person that made her feel out of her comfort zone is exactly how I would see this going in reality. I knew that she had feelings for both male leads b/c of this. Both made her feel uncomfortable & they were elements in her life that she could not control.

Lee Jang Woo's character was just too cute. Even when he was serial it was still cute. I will be looking in to more of his work also. He rly surprised me. He not only had a comedic side, but a serial side to him as well. He did a good job in balancing these parts of Park Tae Kang's personality.

I think that most ppl will like this drama b/c it leaves u w/ a good feeling of "all is right in the world." But, I am sure there r some that will not like this drama b/c it doesn't pull ppl in like other drama's this season. Even so, It is a good solid drama; that I will recommend to other drama addicts to give a try.

I rly loved this story. I love how the actors alluded to themselves while playing their parts. I laughed so often while watching this drama. Ella always plays a character that acts like she is very naive, & innocent, but always comes out w/ some kind of profound meaning behind her behavior. I love that about her acting. Ppl that watch this drama will leave w/ a good feeling in their heart. Enjoy!

I liked the story of this drama. I just want to know in what law book does it say that u have to like ur family? There r a couple of mine that I would not spit on if they were on fire and screaming for help. Ok I'm not really that heartless but I still don't have to like them. Besides spitting is a really nasty thing to do and I would not do it unless I was choking.



I liked the acting but the character Gun-Hee got on my nerves a little b/c he is always yelling. It's like "hello fog horn alert!" He is a classic behavioral psychology case (oppositional defiant disorder), inappropriate displays of emotion (yelling, hitting, calling names). He kinda reminds me of my k-9th graders at work and I diagnosed them all w/ "spoiled brat syndrome."



I liked it and might watch it again at some point but it's not on the top of my list of "crack dramas." I suggest that others watch it b/c it will take u through a ring of emotions that some dramas just can't touch. Enjoy it for what it is and don't try to make more out of it like I do.

Wow! That movie was just bad all around. I watched it for ZE:A. I thought "hummmm maybe it will be 1/2 way decent." No it was bad. There's just too much that I could talk about that didn't work. So I will limit myself to just a few things. The cinematography was supposed to make it feel like a graphic novel, but it was a little off. I don't think they did the coloring correctly. The pieces that should have been drastic & stand out weren't prominent enough to make a difference. Another thing; I thought this was a Japanese movie...So, y did every1 speak Korean? I have a good thing to say about that! If they had dubbed it in Japanese then this would have been 100 x's worse. OMG to watch them speak in another language & the voice be all messed up would have this an epic bomb. So, I totally thought that
