This short series was very promising. The first episode was full of emotions, it had me that emotional that I was on the verge of crying. Autism is not a disease, it is a disorder and I am happy that they put this in the spotlight to raise awareness about people having it. We should not hate them, instead we should be patient with them...they are the most talented people in the world. I admired the pacing the story and the actors are very convincing.

I cannot wait to the next episodes to come. So far, I rated this as perfect, because everything about it is great.

This is one of the best Thai Dramas that I've seen so far.

Kudos to the whole production in this project!

I just finished watching this series and all I can say was that it exceeded my expectations. It was a pre-produced drama and it was well crafted, the development of the characters are being done beautifully. The pacing of the story was well crafted and the acting was as natural as it can get.

I wish I can read the English version of the novel by Bittersweet. This show just brought everything into one, there's a bit of comedy, bit of drama, bit of annoyance and much on romance.

Themes like friendship, respect, acceptance, rejection, romance are being tackled here. I loved how the title of the series did actually focuses on the story. At first, I have worries that it will get boring and the theme will become darker because I thought that the story will be about bullying, abuse of power and violence but I was so wrong...I loved how the character of Krist as Arthit took its turn from being mean to the sweetest guy towards Kongpob. Though he was confused as hell at first that had him worried about everything else in the world he was able to sort out his feelings and the way he acted to Kong was just the sweetest, i really love the tender moments between them and I couldn't get enough of it, I want more haha. Singto as Kong was also great in his character, he was this sweet guy all throughout the series but was vulnerable about his feelings towards Arthit. He knew for sure that he like Arthit and that his admiration developed into a stronger feeling but I just loved how positive his character is, despite of fear of rejection he was still positive that things will work out fine. These two main protagonist of the series are just so adorable, they're just so perfect together. In reality, Singto is a year older than Krist but him playing as a younger character was perfect and Krist on the other hand was convincing as a senior. Damn, you must agree I believed that you have your full admiration to Arthit especially with how his character evolve.

The supporting cast was great as well, they brought balance to everything in the series. And the people that surrounded Kong was as adorable as him, Em, Tew, Wad and Oak. They reminded me of myself when I was still a student having a squad like that made my student life memorable enough with the experiences I had from good ones to bad. The girls were so pretty as well. People around Arthit reminded me of my ROTC in college where that kind of squad was well respected at the same time, most juniors were scared of them.

I love this series that I didn't want it to end and getting extra episodes was still not enough because I need more haha. Somehow the story has to end, but one thing that made my viewing of this series more fun and enjoyable to watch was because of the side comments of the person who translated the subtitles from Thai to English. He or she injected his/her inner thoughts and side comments as subtitles as well. It had me laugh so hard.

Ahhhh that Pink Milk Monster is killing me!

God, why do this series has to end?

My first impression of "My Annoying Brother" was that it's going to be comedy, but I was in for a surprise that this was a tearjerker.

I like the plot for its simplicity and originality. This film was full of emotion and human touch. The struggle for each brother felt real. The start of the film gave a hint of how this was going to be an emotional one, but midway, I couldn't stop my tears from streaming down, I was literally sobbing like a baby.

I was impressed with how the film was rolled out. I have cried watching drama before but I never cried that much until this film.

I understand why they called this film "My Annoying Brother" but this film never annoyed me at all. Instead it was one of the best that I've seen in years.

Sure! This movie has wonderful cast. The start of the film was absolutely great and looks promising that you wanted to look forward for a surprise or something. And surprise! The surprise never came, it get boring towards the middle and becoming bland towards the end. Very predictable story! Overall, it's a complete mess.

I am sorry to other fans of the show if I have to rate Make It Right as only a 7.

The story and the plot sounds very promising and interesting but somehow in a way or another there was something lacking with the show. Maybe I was looking for more, maybe I don't like the execution.

Some acting made me cringe a little bit but I can understand since the actors here are still young and just starting acting.

Book and Frame has been my favorite couple in here, they're very cute and adorable to look, they're the only reason actually that I have to hold on with the show because for most part of it was just off for me.

49 Days is fresh and very interesting to watch. There may be flaws but you could barely see it. The way the story progress always put me at the edge of my seat. I never watch a drama this good.

When it comes to the actors, I commend Lee Yo Won for taking this very challenging role. If you are not following the story very well, you can say that Song Yi Kyung has split personality or worse multiple personalities on the highest level. She was able to bring the quirkiness of Ji Hyun's personality. She should have received a Daeksang for this role.

On the other hand Nam Gyuri as Shin Ji Hyun is a very interesting character as well. There are moments when she look like a doll.

Jo Hyun Jae as Han Kang is a very vulnerable character. If I were him, I would go crazy over the resemblance of Yi Kyung to Ji Hyun. I love his character here because he was like a martyr. It was hard for him to express his love to Ji Hyun so he somewhat become a bastard towards her because that's how he he deals his pain of longingness. But also he deeply cares for her. (Jo Hyun Jae and Jo In Sung are my favorite Korean actors).

Jung Il Woo as the Scheduler, what can I say about his character? He was perfect, he brought a lot of fun and one of the reason why this drama is highly entertaining to watch.

Bae Su Bin as Kang Min Ho is quite a dark character and even if he is the antagonist here I love his character, it was well represented. There are moments when I kind of hate him but as the story progress, you kind of understand his character. But still a villain is a villain.

The music used in the drama was perfect for me. The production knows when to inject the music that suits the scene. It adds drama, it adds thrill.

When it comes to re watching this drama. I would but not right away. Give me 4-5 years and I would want to re-live the drama brings.

Overall, this drama never disappoints. Previous comments and reviews I've read are correct. It's quite difficult to put it in a genre. It is something refreshing to watch, something you could never thought is possible. Something you have never seen on TV. The plot is very interesting and the story was very well executed. It was close to perfection. There are moments when you can't help but laugh at the quirkiness of the leads and there are times when you just can't compose yourself over the emotions you got from what is going on. I felt that the funny moments were unintentional but it really works.

Memories of Bali is quite an interesting story. For me it was like a love story gone wrong. The 4 main characters was vulnerable. Fear, doubts, insecurities played a big role in each character.

Personally, I can relate to Jung Jae Min's character. He was the kind of person who was passionate yet scared in so many forms. He was the most vulnerable among the characters. He was arrogant and rude but I felt like that's how he dealt with his struggles. He had a hard time admitting to himself that he did fall hard to Lee So Jung. He was a rebel with fears that if he pursue the person that makes him feel better he will lose everything.

I was moved by the scene when he finally admitted to So Jung that he fell for her and that he wanted to be the only guy that she sees and that he wanted to make her feel good and that he's the only to make her laugh, but in reality it was the opposite. He was rude, arrogant and a bastard towards So Jung. Adding insult to the injury was that the people surrounded him always threaten and beat So Jung badly like blaming her for Jae Min's actions.

Towards the end, he's ready to lose everything behind as long as he can pursue So Jung. By that act, it only means that money isn't everything in the world. What's important is the happiness Jae Min feels when So Jung is around.

But with twist of fate, everything went wrong with a shocking ending.

I like the plot, the cinematography, the musical score. The acting was superb, very believable. Jo Jin Moo as king was outstanding. In Sung is a master of his craft. Song Ji Hyo as queen was also great though there are scenes where I find her facial expression somewhat robotic.

The only complain I have about the film was the extensive sex scenes, it was too much to the eye. In a story like this, audience are more interested in the story than the sexual portrayals. A one extensive scene between the King and Hong Rim and between Hong Rim and the Queen would be enough but in every encounter between Hong Rim and the Queen the scenes are no longer pleasant to the eyes.

I love the ending where the audience are given to chance to have their own conclusion as how Hong Rim really felt. Whether he really love the King or not. Seeing Jo In Sung in this kind of film was shocking and suprising I doubt he will do this kind of film again. Jo In Sung is my favorite Korean actor by the way.

Ahh this drama made me sad after it ends...it made me sad because I don't want it to end.

I definitely rate this drama high because it's perfect in all aspects. The story is original, though this is not the first drama about sports but highlighting Weightlifting as a sport was refreshing to watch. The pacing of the story was superb, it was not rushed. We know in a way that it's going to be a romantic drama but we do not see the romance between the leads in the first 9 episodes. The characters was well developed.

Lee Sung Kyung as Kim Bok Joo was just perfect, she is such a versatile actress. Give her a role and she'll definitely pull it off. There couldn't be a fitting actress for the role but her. After watching her as Baek In Ha in Cheese In The Trap, I could tell that she is a very talented actress. Nam Joo Hyuk as Jung Joon Yung is perfect as well, it seems like he's not acting at all, it was so natural. And the chemistry between the two was superb that it was not awkward or painful to watch them together doing those silly and funny antics. The supporting cast, ahhh I couldn't say anything bad because they were all perfect. From Bok Joo's bestfriends Nan He and Sung Ok who gave colors to the story and the ever persistent of a best friend of Joon Yung Tae Kwon. Who can forget Bok Joo's father and uncle, Joon Yung's ex Si Ho. And Bok Joo's first love interest Jae Yi.

The characters surrounding the leads was perfectly put in place. From their families, to teammates. The balance was just impeccable. I just love how the story progressed. I admire this story so much because it anyone can relate to it, themes like friendship being tested were shown, the annoying ex, the quirky parents and uncles, the nice brother, respect, hard-work, perseverance, rivalries and peer pressure. Though comedic in most parts, it did not fail to tackle the emotions of all the characters, it was played well, especially their vulnerabilities and how they handle it.

So "Do you like Messi?"

The Heirs:

For starters of Korean Dramas, this was actually a good one. Some funny scenes too. For teens probably they will like this kind of drama, not too deep, not too dark and the best thing about it is that it portrays several situations that a person can relate to like first love, child-parent relationships, rivalries, bullying and others. Overall, the drama was entertaining but nothing screams special.

The story was full of clichés and cheesiness but always touches base with reality.

I commend the actors because they delivered well. The characters have different personalities that when they met each time, it was like a circus. With this drama, 2 actors did actually stand out for me, Kim Woo Bin and Choi Jin Hyuk.

The songs played are musical scores used in the drama was an okay for me...forgettable.

I think watching this once is enough but if you want to relive the funny sides of the story you might want to watch it again. But for me, watching it again will be a waste of time.

After watching this drama, it did made me feel good. a lot had said this this is quite long and draggy. I felt the same way but the pacing of the story was superb. When I decided to watch this drama, my expectations was somewhat like this is going to be hilarious all the way through but I was wrong. The drama has more sense. A lot of people have dreams of becoming a royalty but seeing this drama has shown a different side of it. There is a price to pay. Greed, selfishness, ambition, innocence, love, family, crisis, pressure has been tacked in this drama. We are not royalty but Goong did touched base with reality.

The acting part was outstanding, I cannot say anything bad about it because they delivered well. From the innocence of Shin Chae Kyung to the coldness of Shin Goon it was all believable. The greed and ambition of Yul and his mother. The quirky and innocent Queen Mother. The King and Queen. And all supporting cast did a terrific job.

Music was superb as well. It blend well with every situation.

This drama is worth to be watch again once in a while.

Overall, I rated this drama high because of the sensibility and the realities of life it shown. Even royals have a lot of troubles. We may see how happy they are but who knows it's all a facade. I just love this drama. This goes directly to my Instant Classic List.

Considering the fact that this drama was in 2004, it is one at that time that has original plot and the cinematography was great especially at the start. This is one of the first Korean drama I had watched and I am re-watching it again. I love this drama because it was light and most of the time funny. Han Chae Young was prefect for the role as Cha Eun Jae while Jo Hyun Jae was a heartthrob in the making. This drama spiraled his popularity in mid-2000's.

This drama is not perfect but it got me hooked!

I first watched the Filipino remake of this one and I was really entertained. It did became addictive to me. So I decided to watch the original and what can I say? The Filipino remake was 100% copy of the original and I love that. Well, watching the original was the best decision I had made. Even though the show is already 12 years old it never loses it's luster even up to this day. Of course the show has a lot of flaws but I will NOT compare the dramas of today from the drama that was made more than 10 years ago.

What I love most about this drama was that I had a really good laugh at every episode and as the story progress I kind of get used to the characters instead of feeling awkward. They were cute, Rain and Hye Kyo did really gave justice to their characters. I never laughed so hard watching a Korean drama, this is the first and I am happy to have decided to watch this.

Another superb acting from Jo In Sung. And Song Hye Kyo did a great job playing a blind character. The end was quite confusing to me but what made it good was that it kind of gave me my own conclusion as to how the story ended. The cinematography was outstanding and the score was perfect. I loved the symphony and the orchestra playing on the background. There are lots of surprises in this story.
