Rated this 7/10

... Because a drama educating adolescens on love and loneliness in high school, can't score higher.

7/10 is not a bad rating and I did not dislike this drama. Honestly it was very entertaining to watch and it was very well made. The actors did an incredible job despite being so young and I have great respect for them, since they pulled off the "Mature" tag without making it seem trashy or unrealistic.

Before watching this drama you should prepare for:

sexual scenes (Underwear, over the bra touching, covered up sex scenes, making out, and other mature content.)

A lot of inside dialogue

Lesbian love

High schoolers making countless mistakes and being generally butter brained.

The feels.
This drama will not make you cry but since it is a Jdrama, don't expect things to go the way you want them. This is basically a drama showing how people grow with time and experience. YOU WILL FEEL FRUSTRATION

It was very well made, so if you have nothing against the things listed above, I think you should take your time to watch this. It will be a nice memory and each episode is only about 23 minutes long. Nothing to lose and it will surely be an experience.

ENJOY!

I rate this drama 2/10 (Dropped it at episode 16)

Because if you make the rules, you can break them!

So we all know that there are two kinds of logic in this world; Real world logic and Drama world logic.When it comes to Drama world logic, you just accept it and move on but if a drama contradicts it's own logic then I'm done!

There were so many reasons I dropped this drama.

It had so much potential to be an inspiring drama about the Hwarang boys struggling and dealing with their problem. Growing, making friends, they could even have added a death of a beloved character to tugg at our hearts a little bit and in that case, it would have been totally fine to add a bit of romance but NO.

This drama contains 90% triangle love drama, 6% recapping romantic moments. 3% fighting and 1% problem solving. Not to mention that the female lead is so pathetic, there wont be an episode where they don't show a 5-minute front angle of her walking and crying...

So because the writers based most of the characters off of a real life royal family and they used the true bone ranking system to create conflict, you'd think they couldn't go wrong.... until they add fictional characters and create relationships and events that never happened while still trying to follow some of the original story. There is nothing wrong with that but if you're going to add some spice, do it right! This just ended up giving the show a lot of contradiction, odd relationships and lose ends.
(Apparently, it's okay to marry your brother if you're royal but not if you're poor.)

To me, some "emotional scenes" turned me off completely. They had so many opportunities to really rip my heart apart by adding some real brutality and feeling into it. I have a specific scene in mind and I'm thinking that they could at least spend some time on this scene to make it believable... This scene got a little over 1 minute screen time... Go Ah Ra got 10 minutes screen time for walking and crying...

Oh well... If you love triangle love dramas with a lot of romance and crying and pushing and pulling and recaps after recaps of scenes that don't really move the story forward then this is PERFECT for you! Don't hesitate to watch it! As a bonus, you get a bit of plot on the side. It's weak... not very well worked out... not very logical... and it doesn't really start until episode 16.... BUT there is one heartbreaking death scene in the first episode so maybe I should give this show 10/10

ENJOY!

This review may contain spoilers
My overall rating of this movie is 2/10 and I'll explain why.

Let's start with the story.
There is nothing wrong with it...
It's a pretty creative base to an alien action movie and if executed well it could have turned into "Movie of the year". It had a lot of potential but sadly this movie did not live up to it.

The Characters, (Beware of spoiler - ish comments!)

This is a war movie so obviously, people/monsters from both sides are going to die. But don't worry, you're not gonna feel sad watching them get brutally ripped apart because you're gonna have only a few seconds with each character. What happens is; They briefly tell you why they are criminals and then for the rest of the movie, you get to watch them die without knowing their full names, their background stories, their dreams, who their loved ones were or how they got into this mess in the first place. Out of 7 or 8 forgettable main characters (Can't be bothered to remember how many they were), you only get a half-butted background story for 2 of them. Not to mention that at the end they try to make you think they were best buds, even though some characters barely had any screen time together.

The Make-up and the CGI
Okay, so a lot of people gave this movie some really big thumbs up but as I understood it, all they could say was good about this movie, was the CGI...
I have to admit that the CGI was better than most Japanese action movies. It actually gave me some hope for the upcoming Live action adaptions of FMA and Joe's Bizarre adventures (Even though they picked Yamaken to play a macho man when he has a typical ikemen face...). The make- up was not too bad either. I don't know how to feel about people being half morphed into insects but they were very creative while trying to make it work and it looked pretty okay.

The music
No comments. Not memorable.

Actors.
I don't know what to say. All of a sudden Yamapi starts speaking English then a Japanese terrorist starts speaking random English, both for no reason at all... I guess the acting was okay, though. Not much to talk about since they did not get much screen time and the script was a mess. Well... The whole movie was a mess so if the actors couldn't show their best performance, it wasn't their fault.

To sum it all up
The story was good. It had a lot of potential but because everything was so rushed it couldn't live up to my expectations. Had they divided this one movie into 3 movies and added more detail it would have been more interesting. The characters were hollow so I could not emotionally connect with any of them and the actors did not have so much space to act so their general performance was bearable. The visual effects were better than expected but the music was not memorable at all.
In the end, it was barely entertaining enough to keep me watching so I give this movie an overall 2/10

I do not plan to watch any upcoming movies.

This movie contains:
- A lot of violence, blood and graphic, disturbing scenes. If you are a sensitive viewer, discretion is adviced.

- This movie does not have any romance or comedy in it. It is purely action

- It's slightly fast paced but it didn't bother me personally. The actors were amazing, the scripting was good and the effects and stunts were really well made.

- The story is heartbreaking, crazy, clever and corrupt.

- High chance of crying

- Over imaginative use of technology but I will let it slide for now.

...because it's fan service with a running time.

With experience in watching Kdramas and Jdramas, you learn when to expect a well made, deep plot and good acting, and you can quickly see when it's purely girly fan service. For those who did not figure it out yet; This is girly fan service.

Ways to spot this is for example the cheesy title that implies incest. The super pink and girly cover. The fact that it's a reverse harem. And lastly, it is based on a romance manga. This combination is how you know it's a low budget drama.

I can understand why it's low budget though because this is just a prequel to a movie coming up at the end of June.

Before watching this prequel or the movie i suggest you abandon you expectations of:
a plot, good acting, deep message, good soundtrack, good filming, good script or a red thread. It's just a cute girl in a reverse harem with a lot of ikemen playing 18 years old.

All my guilty pleasure friends.....

...ENJOY!!

4.5/10...
...Because 18 episodes felt like 50

If you've read my reviews before then you know I'm a major binge watcher but this Kdrama was purely unbingable!

When I first started this drama I thought the concept was great and it completely chained my interest but as I saw the mystery unraveling I got disappointed and the concept turned cheesy. Which, if I'm to be honest, matches the rest of the story because this show has a heavy emphasis on ROMANCE.

I'm not a big fan of pure romance and the comedy was not my style so this drama did not hit home with me. Yes it is somewhat super natural but it's only there to fuel the love story. so if you're a major romantic, you will love this. If you like awkward but proud women, you will like the lead. If you like the concept of evil exes then this is for you. On the other hand, if you dislike loud humor, lovey dovey couples and mothers you'd like to kill then this is NOT for you.

the acting was average, the music was good, the scenes were pretty and the script tickled my vomit reflexes but if you're a fan of Eric, ignore all the above and...

...ENJOY!

This drama is a character introduction to a movie with the same name that came out on October 12. Although it doesn't focus much on the main character here, it builds a better foundation for the friendship and everyones relation to each other.

Five, twenty minute long episodes with super relaxed, funny and smooth characters being nerdy, bromantic and weird while they attend a cheesy high school where all the girls stalk handsome guys. Don't let that scare you away though, as cheesy as that sounds, those girls don't take up much of the screen. Instead they spent the running time on short stories of people falling in love and epic friendships.


Boys love is totally allowed

ENJOY

Content.
- The perfect amount of romance where you can see the characters fall for each other a little bit in every episode. This is NOT a "from hate to love" type of romance which I found so refreshing.

- The characters were well developed and had really good back stories which will break our hearts and slowly glue them back together. With lovable personalities they showed great chemistry in all sorts of relationships.

- A lot of justice will be served. Regardless of the social status, Kang Ho will roast the damn out of every single person in the room and leave with a mic drop. Prepare to feel empowered and excited.

- The plot was very interesting and very original. It wasn't too predictable and kept me curious with a variety of different events and plot devices.

- There will be some violence and blood but not too much.

- Theres a medium chance of tears.

- Epic acting and Yoon Shi Yoon syndrome.

- With some solid points and clever questions, the writers highlight the flaws and corruption of news stations and law practitioners in Korea.

This is one of the best dramas I have ever seen and it's going into my "loved" list for a future re-watch. I can honestly say I feel empty now that it has ended and I will miss the impatient waiting for the next episode. I recommend that everyone tries to watch it and spread their love because this is a real candidate for best drama of the year.

ENJOY!!!

...cause if all the ends are tied at episode 38, don't make 40 episodes.

If you're considering watching this, this is what you should expect:

Great acting. All the actors did a great job portraying their characters. If you're a fan of JCW you will not be disappointed. Also a very special hats off to Dong Ha who plays the criminal in this drama. He was outstanding. I'll be following his work a lot more after this.

The sub story was amazing.
It really took me by surprise. I've never seen such a well thought out and executed villains plot and it was very deep and moving. They had all the right twists in the right places and I love that they put out subtle hints throughout the drama, warning you about the final twist, so subtle that I did not figure it out.

There's an on and off relationship.
The reason I'm calling it a sub story is because it gets over shadowed by the romance.
Indeed this is a romance thriller but I would have wished for more emphasis on the "thriller" part since that part of the story was so great. Although I love a bit of romance, I can only take in the right amount and when it's an "on and off" relationship like in this drama, I want to shoot the female character. Therefore I will not be taking my hat off for the lead actress. Because of her character and because I didn't really enjoy her acting.

There is also a few faint love triangles moving around but it was bearable. they lasted very shortly and all the female and male characters were all very cool about.

38/40 episodes.

They could have easily wrapped up the whole thing at 38 but they added 2 extra filler episodes. As if you didn't get enough romance through out the entire drama, the last 2 episodes will put you in their everyday, boring life, which, if you're anything like me, will make you hate the lead actress more than you did before. But you can end the agony anywhere you want. 38, 39, or 40. Depends on how much you care about their romance.

Overall this drama was very enjoyable, the acting was great, the characters were a piece of work but that really made them feel realistic. Hope this review was of any help to those who are still considering, instead of pressing play.

ENJOY!!!

......because she cried all the frikkin time....

The basic plot is kind of original but honestly super weird and it made me really uncomfortable but the execution lacked any originality. You will see the female lead who is kind of "unique" and cheerful with her two side kick best friends, the bad boy who needs friends and the broken male lead.

As usual with Japanese dramas or movies, when life gets tough, the female lead cries.... a lot... all the time.

The couple didn't have any chemistry so their on screen time was just really awkward while some scenes were just really uncalled for and didn't make sense at all.

I recommend this movie to Kamenashi Kazuya fan girls cause he is dressed as a cop. To everyone else I'd recommend you find ANY OTHER shoujo with a higher quality story and execution.

ENJOY!

Like cheese with holes in it.

I like dramas with the right kind of drama for the right kind of romance and because this, had that, I could enjoy it without any problems. Though I'm not too happy with the many plot holes here, it was still enjoyable if you try not to pay so much attention to it. The character development was good enough and because there is a twist to this typical high school story, it didn't get boring at all.

On the other hand, I didn't think the dialogue was well written because there were so many useless, time-consuming conversations that didn't even contribute to the story and sometimes the characters made me want to high five myself in the head with a chair.

Still, recommend you watch it though!

Enjoy!

Because plot holes are inevitable in time traveling dramas

Although this is an adaption, you wouldn't notice that unless you already knew about it before hand.
I think they did a very good job on this live action and the characters are very talented considering how young they are.

Like I said, there is some time manipulating going on in this drama so of course, plot holes are inevitable but if you see past that, I think you will enjoy this as much as I did. It's a very beautiful story with smooth progression and character development and I liked it to the very end.

ENJOY!

7/10 ...Because you shouldn't commit suicide for that reason...

I'd recommend this drama to those who are really in to romance dramas with a bit of conflict unrelated to the actual romance. This doesn't contain a major love triangle that would bother shape haters, like me. Even though I'm extremely allergic to triangles I survived this one without any difficulties.

I think the writers succeeded very well in surprising their audience in romantic ways and I got hooked so bad, once I started watching. I'm not a big romantic but I have to say, I really liked everything about this love story....

... except the part where her sister has committed suicide for the DUMBEST reason ever...

No spoilers, you will have to watch for yourself.

I enjoyed this but honestly there is still some work to be done. Too many loose ends and hazy paths and I honestly don't understand the way some characters think. Especially in the Chae family...

Other characters were very well developed though, and they felt very human. I think all the actors did a good job in keeping the awkward air when it was needed as well as getting the comic relief just right and giving us all "the feels", from time to time.

This Kdrama will set it's roots in you and you will definitely remember that you watched it. It's also totally bingable but you can slow pace it if you want. Just not sure you'll be able to cause I'm pretty sure you'll be shipping couples too hard

ENJOY!!

When I read the plot to this movie I thought it was going to be one of those typical high school romance comedies. I should have known I was wrong just by looking at the insane running time. Even though the running time is quite scary, I decided to take a shot at it, and watch it anyway. I was not disappointed!

This has become one of my favorite movies.

It reminds me a lot of Quentin Tarantino films by the way it makes you feel gloominess and darkness right from the start but with just the right amount of comedy and lightness to not make it too heavy. The story invites you in to the life of psychologically damaged people and contains a fair amount of gore, violence, incest, romance, sex and PANTIES.

The part I love the most is that it handles very serious matters in a comedic way without making it seem like a joke. It actually makes it more horrifying. You get to see the characters fall apart little by little and this might lead to you feeling sympathy towards a psychopathic killer. This wouldn't have worked without these great actors though. I was starting to wonder if their minds got slightly more deranged after making this movie. For them to be able to pull through one sick thing after another, I am truly impressed.

I can't find anything about this movie that I dislike.
The story was incredibly well done. It was interesting throughout the whole film even though it was 4 hours long.
The actors were amazing. Even though the characters weren't lovable, I loved them anyway.
The scenes were beautiful. I'm not in to gore, but some scenes were just shot perfectly.
The music fit right in. It set the mood just right. it wasn't too heavy and not too light but I can't say it was comfortable either. I still felt the psychological chaos.
Lastly, the ending was better than I expected. In movies like these you never know how it is going to end. Especially when it's Japanese but in my opinion it ended just the right way.

Take time to watch this film. It was funny and twisted at the same time and it definitely left a print on me. It's a journey you wont forget easily.

P.s I am sorry for my messy review. I had so many things I wanted to write but It was hard to put it all together. Hope it was helpful anyway.

You're reading this review wondering if you should watch this movie or not so I will try to quickly summarize what you will encounter if you choose to watch it. (lower down, I will go in to a bit more detail.)

The story revolves around LANDS, a five member rock/punk/pop band who hasn't made it big yet but is one hit away from a break through. Due to the pressure of showbiz the members start losing themselves and the reason they play music. Because some members in the band are more valued than others they also start losing faith in each other.

This is not a love story. Even though they are generous with scenes of the male and female lead connecting, it doesn't show the usual "boy meets girl" kind of love but rather the fine line between hating someone and loving someone with the focus on the frustration of losing yourself and becoming someone you hate. Because the movie is about such a sensitive thing the feel to it is very dark and gloomy. The colors are very grey-ish and faded and even though it does contain a lot of music, it has a few beautiful scenes with no soundtrack at all.

The acting is decent. There isn't much to say about it. Some scenes were better than others and some scenes were like watching a dog try to communicate with a fish, random, difficult to understand and confusing. Their feelings didn't always reach me while some scenes were surprisingly convincing and heart breaking. I wouldn't blame it all on the actors though. I think they did a pretty good job considering that the characters weren't as well developed and worked out as they should have been.
Since the selling point of the movie is to make you see the change in the characters as the movie goes, the lack of actual characteristics was a big miss. Instead of showing the audience what the people are like, they list it up in a conversation between the lead roles near the end of the film.

This is one of many details they didn't execute well for this movie, which made a lot of the scenes hollow and confusing. Personally i felt like i didn't know the characters well enough to actually sympathize with them and because of the constant time skipping I didn't really feel like i even had the time to process what was going on. This made it very difficult to understand the relationship between the characters and there for I didn't get as much out of it as i would have wanted.

I don't want to comment too much on the music since it's very difficult to judge but i think they did a good job creating the right atmosphere in some of the scenes. The additional music by the band is something I'm a bit more critical about. Since their intention is for you to notice the sudden change in the bands music, the film makers try to convince you that LANDS were playing rock in the beginning and then started playing pop after they sold themselves cheap. The reason I'm not convinced is because the songs played in the movie weren't really rock to begin with and they made it clear that the band members didn't know what they were doing either. That isn't all bad though. It actually made the feel to it more realistic, apart from the fact that they were supposed to have played for at least 10 years together already.

So to finish this review off,

The story was good, it had a lot potential and I think that the topic of losing yourself and becoming someone you hate is a very interesting subject to make a film about. Sadly the movie didn't really live up to my expectations because of hollow characters and lack of detail. There was a lot of time skipping which made it difficult to grasp the feeling of the atmosphere and understand the relationship between characters which made heart breaking scenes less heart breaking since I didn't feel like i could connect to the character or feel sympathy for them.
The scenes were beautiful though and the music was good and appropriate not to mention that some of the dialog was moving.

Over all i give it a 8.5/10 because I actually enjoyed watching it and despite my negativity, it was a pretty nice movie.
