The thing about this show is that starting from the first scene right to the end, there is nothing that can be considered filler content. Nothing is done without reason. You are given a puzzle of a story but the truth is it's not about the answer to the puzzle but about the things you learn getting to it. In a time, where people only want guilty pleasure and happy happy happy, this show gives a voice to so many children who are ignored every day. I'm one such survivor and this story got to me in a way that is hard to explain. Children of Nobody. Can there be a more heartbreaking phrase? The actors made it so you get lost in the fantasy and even root for the villain at times I believe that was the point. That people lose their way. N's story was the saddest and no spoilers but I'm glad finally in a TV show this topic was touched. Honestly just a phenomenal script and acting I wish there were more like this one.

This show is so trippy I totally got hooked by the very first episode. And even though it starts out becoming entertaining because of the mystery aspect, there's a lot of depth to the story which I loved. It's the story of trying to overcome your trauma and for once the characters act like people who have suffered trauma. Both physical and emotional. Hyun Bin plays Yoo Jin Woo a tech hotshot with two broken marriages, who is rude and overbearing. Through chance he gets involved in the life of a hostel owner in Granada played by Park Shin Hye who happens to be the older sister of a genius game designer played by Chanyeol. To give out anything about the plot would be a spoiler tbh so I'll just talk about the other details and things that I liked. First off great acting by all the cast. The cast was picked well even the supporting cast you fell in love with. The shots are beautiful and the script is good for the most part. The concept is unique and the execution is not bad. The only thing that felt somewhat anticlimactic was the ending. But Hyun Bin is so handsome and just gorgeous! I could have watched a hundred more episodes. Especially that one episode where he's completely desperate and goes to his office to start the server and encounters the real side of his boss who once kicked his own son out for monetary gain. That scene the way it was shot, just heartbreaking to watch. And then all the sadness regarding the constant struggle between the friends only because of that one awful person. And especially jinwoos secretary, he was my favorite character! Even when he started playing and their banter, and Hyun Bin says "do you like me" lol and he responded with "I have a gf" I was laughing and crying! So it's the kind of show you really get emotionally invested it. That end if it was second season bait I'm fine with that but on it's own I think a proper conclusion would have suited this one more. But hey that's just personal preference and it didn't change my actual viewing pleasure of the show at all. I wish Chanyeol had a proper role considering he's a good actor! Regardless, I was not disappointed with the show at all and in fact would have happily watched more episodes. Another thing I want to mention is I love the subtleness of the love story. It didn't feel forced because the characters started to feel love when they actually developed a rapport and as a viewer you don't feel cheated because it feels natural. Also, the love story is not too fluffy which I think is perfect for someone like me to enjoy. The mystery part is more prominent. And it's a good mystery, really well done. Overall, a unique dark drama but darkness wise it wasn't as dark as The Smile Has Left Your Eyes or Children or Voice or Save Me. It was mild comparatively.

I started reading the negative reviews and the positive reviews and I'm laughing so hard at both. He's either the Devil incarnate or Mother Teresa lol when he's nothing more than an actor and sucks at that job. So why all the fuss? I've never been a fan of this guy. Mostly because he's the Shin Se Kyung of male leads and the kind of person who can only be an "actor" because of a casting couch. Because what he does it can't be called acting in any shape or form lmao to top it off he has zero personality. Most dramas the actors are uncomfortable in the beginning but get better with a few episodes. That doesn't happen with this guy. The bubbly female lead was wasted on this show. Anyway here are my thoughts. I liked the beginning couple of episodes. The con man plot with time stopping twist it was amazing. Especially adding the reapers. But then it became something else by episode 3 and I was watching stories of random characters which fine, I'm sure it will make sense at some point right? It didn't. The couple lacks chemistry mostly because um the main lead can't act. I did get involved in the mystery though and the parts where they banded together with In Seop were more interesting than the romance. No real build up so the relationship seemed fake when he kissed her. For the amount of episodes there was too much going on. They gave so many things focus the couple barely got any time together. It was mostly just her talking about him with her friends and him doing random stuff. I'm thankful for the Reaper plot I suppose because as a romance it totally fails.

This is just one of those dramas that will scar you for life and you'll be happy for it because apparently you have masochistic tendencies. Go figure. I'm in love with this drama and needless to say Seo in Guk I don't know what he's doing to me right now but I'm a total mess after watching it. God, it was EPIC from start to finish. EPIC. Subtle when needed, and melodramatic when needed. It's just something thAt doesn't come by every day. Which is something I've realized after trying to find something to take me out of this dramas world but not found anything like this that I haven't watched. Very close to Hello monster feeling wise just replace Jung So min with Park Bo Gum. Both shows are at the same level of highest possible rating even though cinematography wise TSHLYE is better. And Hello Monster begins like a rom com with Jang Nara this one has a more subtle, stylish, edgy look. It's phenomenal.

Ok someone please tell me what the hell was in that coffee! Lol not going to lie some parts of the drama were clearly made on something more than regular caffeine. That said I really enjoyed it! I'm betting the ending will piss people off for sure lol but it didn't bug me I'm happy for the direction they took. And while it was very well shot and had a pretty engaging story and characters, it was nothing special. That was the only drawback for me. The good part was the bromance and the romance. And it was really funny without being too annoying. So all in all not the best but pretty damn watchable and both male leads are gorgeous and I fell for them both.

Ok so I honestly love this show!!! It was exciting, mind blowing action, emotional and gave me all the feels. The romance is EPIC. God. The way he was so crazy about her and I love love love the mystery of not knowing the very person you're married to but then it becomes something so deep thoughtful and just plain brilliant. Shot so well and just BEAUTIFUL. Totally fell in love with the main couple. And the things that happened broke my heart. I started watching and literally could not stop so yeah it's addictive too. Very fast paced and just wow.

Okay here's my thoughts about the show. I'm sure there will be people not okay with a lot of stuff, and without giving out any spoilers I'm just going to say it's just fantasy. Gu Hai was OBSESSED with him. There are so many things I would never think of doing in real life that I totally enjoy seeing in fiction! Like the bad boy trope. Or stalker love. Or the bad guys getting it in the end. So yes to me his obsession made the fantasy even more exciting. Personally, I loved the really hardcore make out and sex. Skinship wise, I'd say it's sufficient. Kind of a slow burn but when it does happen it's so satisfying.

The story made me feel every possible emotion. I knew the finale was coming and felt like I was going to miss these characters. I love the very raw, powerful kind of portrayal. Something that begins from basically bullying each other in stupid ways to growing into a deep love. Just wow. Just one thing, if you get offended easily this is not the show for you. If like me you prefer flawed characters who make blunders because of what they're going through and you can suspend disbelief then you'll love it. The unfortunate reality of the majority of the Asian world is their lack of understanding for same sex couples. I realize that the entire team and actors were threatened and basically they were unable to make a second season. There's nothing you can do about that. But you know what, just forget that last scene of her appearance and it finished off perfectly at the parking lot car scene. That's it. Let's show our support for these shows so people can understand same sex stories are marketable and people love them, so love can win over hate. Again, thanks to the creators for being brave enough.

As for the two main leads both Timmy Xu and Johnny Huang are gorgeous (though I have a shameless preference for Huang).

Xu plays the role of Bai Luo Yin who was abandoned by his birth mother and has been living with his father for most of his life in a financially tough situation because of his father's meagre earnings.

Huang plays Gu Hai, who is extremely rich, but his birth mother died in mysterious circumstances and since then he's always held his father and his step mother responsible. Even though the step mom tries hard to get along with him, Gu Hai never listens to her or his father.

Basically when they interact at school neither Luo Yin nor Gu Hai realize that they both share a person-- Luo Yin's birth mother is actually Gu Hai's step mom who is about to marry his father.

But Gu Hai and his father have a falling out and Gu Hai leaves home to live in the same neighborhood as Bai Luo Yin. He hides the fact that he's rich from everyone. And the first time Bai Luo Yin encounters Gu Hai it's not pleasant.

They both end up not getting along and literally bully and tease each other to hilarious lengths. But one day when Luo Yin's complaining to a friend about Gu Hai, the friend tells Bai Luo Yin he believes Gu Hai doesn't hate Luo Yin at all in fact he explains why he believes Gu Hai actually likes him. Bai Luo Yin finds it strange that a person who bullied him that way could like him.

Anyway from here on out you are taken on a somewhat strange journey. As Luo Yin goes from extreme annoyance with the new guy who refuses to sit anywhere else but behind Luo Yin in class, to a weird kind of friendship to love and plain obsession from Gu Hai's end.

But man what a journey! I couldn't get over it for months.

They started with a bang but despite the fact that I preferred Lee Jin wook to Jang Hyuk in the Detective role, I wasn't exactly wowed tbh. For one there was no real resolution, so it's pointless to comment on the overall story arc. I also don't want to give out any spoilers but the ending cliffhanger I'm okay with that. Its just the overall story was pretty mediocre and personally for me Kim Jae wook made it worth sitting down for the last part in the last season and no doubt the last half of Voice was mind blowing. Voice 2 though the stories are interesting I feel casting choices were not great. People ended up being villainous who basically I felt nothing for so there was no real sense of loss and I do find the main female lead bearable at best so it's impossible to relate to her. Just like last season, Yesung played the role of the computer hacker on their team and I could connect to him and the other supporting characters more, this time around it was officer Jin. Even in the finale I was able to get some entertainment because he was involved. But the thing is how he reacts to what happened to him wasn't realistic at all. He was basically just fine and talking to people, has anyone on the show ever been through actual trauma? So even in that they were lacking. Overall, just an average show. Not terrible but nothing memorable either. I did like the Detectives storyline. Even darkness wise it was pretty mild compared to last season.

If your criticism of a movie that STATES CLEARLY it's dark, adult, violent, is that it is dark, adult and violent, seriously learn how to read. I don't care about the four grade school children who got "offended" by the view of nude human bodies (THE HORROR) and I assure you neither are any of the actors or creators. I don't understand why you seek out such movies? So hypocritical. Anyway, moving on. I'm a total wreck right now because sure this is a gangster film some heartbreaking was expected but honestly when Korea does cinema right, it becomes PHENOMENAL. Obviously, this is an ADULT film so please don't watch if it's not your thing. If you're a well adjusted adult and these things don't offend you I would absolutely recommend this. The filming, the acting, the two main leads are both my favorite actors but what I love about this one is that Lee Minki isn't some desperate guy mulling over making a kill, fuck no, HE IS A KILLER. That was established in the very first scene. But he's the protagonist. So yes, I absolutely loved it

I really loved watching this during the comeback promotions and I really enjoyed their conversation and Key making a meal and Taemin showing off his non existent driving skill lmao ???? seriously and it was touching watching their days pass during live stages. But the best thing about the whole show was getting to see the members Minho, Onew, Taemin, and Key really enjoying their time together. Shinee has always worked hard, no matter what, they've been through so much and still stand tall. Nothing makes me happier to see them shine.

"Before your name can be forgotten
I long for you again. "

There's nothing like a drama that makes you cry not just during the sad scenes but also the happy moments. Because it means the words aren't the only thing evoking that feeling of sadness but also everything that you're witnessing on screen. From the shots, to the actors subtle emotions, to the soundtrack, this drama makes you feel. A starcrossed lovers story that reminded me of this Spanish film Little Ashes about Salvador Dalí and Federico García Lorca. I feel there's a lot in fact in this drama that will remind you of Spanish films in general. So, anyway that's how good it is. And truly the most beautiful thing about Hymn of Death is that it feels less about the actual characters portrayed and more about the struggle broken people face when they try to live a life of love and passion. In fact, even more beautiful was the way both the leads cried in many different moments, but don't shed a single tear in the entire last part. Like, that's PHENOMENAL. Because I was still a heartbroken mess for the entire last episodes.
Must watch for anyone who truly appreciates art.

You know what Knock says Yiwah is like when she watches people getting romantic on TV and cries with the couple like she's their family? Yep. That was me watching the finale.

I'm so in love with Knock and Korn lol it's not even funny. But ok lets be honest, Bad Romance has plenty of faults and yes the whole series has plenty of inconsistencies but that's what happens when you make a single season and then start writing another one that wasn't planned. Everything changes naturally. For instance the actors are younger in Bad Romance and older in Together With Me which is a past story, but you know what that's why it's called suspension of disbelief. My advice is, of you want something fun that you don't have to take seriously watch it. If you want to experience and explore Knock and Korn's world then watch this because some of the moments just wow.

Right, so on to the review.

First off, this isn't Bad Romance it's TERRIBLE romance lol

The two main couples Yihwah and Cho and Knock and Korn are never properly without problems. One couple the girl Yiwah believes that not only is Cho the main love interest, gay but also trying to get her bestie Korns boyfriend Knock to sleep with him. The second main couple, Knock tries to make his boyfriend Korn jealous by hanging out with Cho and pretending to flirt with him. But it gets out of hand when Cho falls for Yiwah and tries to convince her he likes her but Yiwah believes Cho is gay and decides to stalk Cho and Knock to find evidence of Cho being gay with hilarious consequences.

The main lead Yihwa and her love interest Cho they made it so entertaining and also the rest of the supporting cast! Be, Dewey, Martin, Tanguy. Not going to lie the guys Knock constantly kept hanging around ugh they pissed me off lol all except Cho.

But I think that was the point of the show. To show rather dysfunctional relationships in a rom com setting.

But seriously the supporting cast especially the couples were all gorgeous too. But my favorite (aside from Knock and Korn naturally lol) was definitely Cho and Yihwah. From the first moment they meet to the end they're constantly battling.

And same goes for Knock and Korn. I know Knock was just trying to make Korn care for him in the beginning by flirting with Cho but then it escalated and suddenly everything is a total mess!

Seriously gave me anxiety lol especially when that jerk Chinook came in I was cringing so bad. But minor spoiler *when Knock and Korn have that fist fight in the second to last episode lol sorry but it was epic*

But seriously though it's a fun entertaining show with a badass heroine who doesn't wait for some Prince to solve her problems. Yiwah is loyal, extremely arrogant and entitled but in a cute way. Cho is the guy who gets mistaken for a heartless playboy type but turns out to be a really sentimental and caring guy.

Knock appears to be someone who is flirtatious and uncaring but inside he's a total mess and ends up regretting his own mistakes and truly loves Korn but has a hard time saying it because of his own insecurities.

Korn appears to be a people pleaser type everyone likes who looks like he has his shit together but in truth not having Knock is driving him crazy.

It's always entertaining always fun!

Another movie that will go unnoticed because it's dark. If you don't mind going through dark experiences then this is the perfect film. It's heartwarming and heartbreaking all at the same time. I loved the way they showed the characters different lives but how they end up together and change each other. There are dark topics like prostitution, suicide, cheating, drugs etc portrayed realistically.

Ming is a young boy who works in a sales store. Soon he meets Yan and an affair starts between them. When Ming's mother confronts him of his sexuality, he leaves home. He also loses his job. His roommate takes him to parties where once an older man makes him an offer for sex for money. Slowly he gets deeper into the world of prostitution and drugs. Following a police raid Ming is sent to a rehabilitation center where he meets Kueng. When Keung is leaving the center he invites Ming to visit him. Keung has no idea about Ming's sexuality...

I'm now going to have a new genre that I love. Bromantic Comedy!!!

This is easily one of my favorite movies now, because two of my favorite people being friends, and their banter and the whole scenario, it was so much fun to watch! Kind of like the Korean version of Kick-ass! Two regular friends banding together to fight a much stronger evil force.

We all know Park Seo Joon and Kang Ha Neul are two of the most amazing actors and it shows in this movie where they both play the parts of guys who meet in the police academy and become friends when Park Ki Joon (Park Seo Joon) saves another trainee Kang Hee Yeol (Kang Ha Neul) when he gets hurt during a training session without thinking about getting a penalty.

Not only does this bond them but it shows a side of these two people who while still struggling with their own identity and the usual dilemmas people that young face, worrying about making the wrong career choice, money issues, not having a girlfriend, just basically being a young adult.

They go out one night to a bar to have fun and meet girls, but instead end up being caught up in a world of human trafficking when they witness a girl getting kidnapped and thrown into a van. They try to get the cops to help but realize that without the pressure of an adult, no one is going to listen to them especially because the girl in question is a runaway and doesn't have a family who would file an actual missing persons report.

Ki Joon (Seo Joon) gets angry and starts to lash out at the cop who refuses to take them seriously but Hee Yeol (Kang) manages to get him to calm down and they both decide to catch the criminals on their own because they learned in their training that the first seven hours are crucial in a female kidnapping case. After that time has passed, there's less chance of finding them and they don't want to waste any more time.

With no idea who the victim was they go back to the site of the kidnapping to look for clues.

After that ensues an interesting little plot about a young girl being sold to human traffickers and how two naive trainees go in search of her applying whatever knowledge they have of police work and even end up putting their own lives at risks, when they could have just as easily not bothered and stayed safe.

One of the things that I love about this movie is their characters. They're well thought out, well acted, such an amazing combo! When they go from total badasses to acting their real age you fall in love with their inexperienced innocence, and their naive charm. In a time where people are forgetting about family values and give very little importance to friends because we all think we can live in a bubble and survive, this movie shows two people who believe in each other and in the goodness of people. And they do it not by demanding everyone to be good to them but by SHOWING them how it's done.

An amazing, fresh new take that you have to check out!

I wanted to leave a review while the show is still fresh in my mind. I just want to say exactly what I felt. This show is downright one of the most beautiful things you'll ever see. From the casting, to the cinematography, to the writing, everything is sheer perfection. It's kind of EPIC. You can feel the beautiful way the creator sees the world, with its particular touch of darkness. It will hurt you, and make you laugh, even in the midst of your pain, like the Grim Reaper in that one scene, you'll not have a choice. Rating the show the highest possible rating wasn’t even up for debate. The thing about a good story is that you can have a massive budget and top rated actors but if you have a stale, unworthy story and half boiled characters, it just doesn't work. The value of this show is that every character is so deep, so believable, so REAL, you can't help getting lost in them. Few minor gripes I have was that Duek Hwa and Jung Hae In should have had better storylines. Second, toward the end the amnesia bit dragged a bit for me. (Minor spoiler) Even the whole finding love in past lives instead of present was again a bit typical for a show of this caliber. What you can do in a next life you can do in this one, for this reason the last two or three episodes in places it got a bit boring for me. Still, I'm happy to have seen this show, I've never quite seen anything like it. All in all, bravo!
