Oh, what can I say about this movie! It had so many elements to it that made it so wonderful. It was very heartwarming and heartbreaking all at the same time. It really gives a nice view on what family can really mean and people who have hard lives. Even though some would say that the storyline is not something very possible, it is. I've had people in my lifetime that I know go through similar situations as Jae Soo and his Mom, so it really made me feel somewhat attached to this movie and imprinted it in my mind. Although... I would have loved for it to have a different ending... I think if the movie didn't have the ending it did, then the movie would not quite be what it is and it wouldn't have the same meaning.

First off the storyline was a little confusing at first, but that's what kept me watching it. It had that sort of -you have to watch it to understand it- storyline. The music was also incredibly appropriate for the scenes that it is put with, it will have your heart stopping at just the right moments. I hate it when I watch movies (especially horror/suspence) and the music that they play does not fit the scene at all, happily though, I did not find that in this movie.
Also it is officially the FIRST horror movie that has EVER made me cry, if you want to know why, you have to watch it and find out for yourself.
So, in the end all I can say for this movie is "Wow." This movie had some things I was not expecting for a horror movie.

This was a cute and funny movie that really got me laughing. I love almost anything that can make me laugh and this did a pretty good job at doing just that. I will say this movie was a little gross at times, but it wasn't something I couldn't endure. I think there were probably only two scenes in this whole movie that I didn't like, but there were quite a few good ones that made me like it. This is also definitely a type of weekend movie. One of those movies where, when you have a little extra time, can just sit back to watch the movie and have a happy feeling when it's all said and done. I think that more could've been done with the story but it kept my attention. It's not one of the best things I've ever seen, it's not the worst, but it's not regrettable.

This movie was beautiful and cute all at the same time. ^u^ I have previously read the manga, watched the anime and fell in love with the story. At first, I was a bit wary to watch the movie. In many movies things differ so greatly from the original, it pains me to watch it. When I finally came around to watching this, I was amazed! They somehow managed to keep the beautiful storyline in tact with very few changes. I love how well these actors interacted with one another, I think they did a wonderful job portraying their characters. The innocence was also very well portrayed, so for those of you who are hesitant or have not seen nor read the anime and manga, should not put off watching this. It is a very good adaption and has put a refreshing twist in the story that brought it close to my heart. I hope anyone who watches this will thoroughly enjoy it as much as I have.

Ugh. Almost complete rip off of the 2006 movie; The Holiday. I wouldn't mind if it was marketed as a remake or if it was a spin off or even made out to be "based on The Holiday" but the fact that they tried to make it out like the plot was original to this film is quite sad.

There were so many aspects that made this adorable, it could have been a very good movie without the copy cat bits. However, because it was copied and I have recently seen The Holiday for the first time, I could tell how many things were rushed in order to stick to the original concept.

I personally don't mind remakes, spin offs or movies based upon another older movie, but I can't stand it when they make it out to be super original and it ends up rushed. If you want to watch a really good movie, try The Holiday; it's got feelings that are more raw and beautiful.

I wouldn't stop anyone from watching this movie, but I hope that other people will realize it's just a copied product trying to do it better.

Okay, let me start off by saying that I did not finish this drama; however, I think I have some very valid things to point out, which might help others ultimately decide if they want to watch it or not.

1. Story
Okay, I will be 100% honest, I really think the story-line to this drama is really intriguing. I think that it has many elements that are not cliche and can be found very enjoyable. I was constantly wondering when and how the story would develop and couldn't wait to find out more secrets behind the virus.

2. Actors
I will once again be completely honest. I think that most of the actors in this drama did wonderfully. I think since Ahn Jae Hyun us a relatively new actor that showed a bit and I personally have never been able to stand the acting of Gu Hye Seon; however, I think there are those who do not mind her acting and have nothing further to say about her. Anyway, the other actors did an amazing job. Whether it was from the hospital patients to the doctors and nurses, there were mostly good and great actors.

3. Execution
With everything seeming really good, some of you might want to hop on over to your favourite drama site and start watching this right now, but I have some bad news. While the cast and story are good, the execution is not. There are scenes that are extremely slow and draggy because of the way the directors chose to portray certain scenes or moments. Some scenes that only would require one or two minutes to get the point, seem to drag on for at least ten; while other moments leave you confused, because something important was glossed over too quickly.

4. The Hype and the Hate
Honestly, this is one of the many dramas that can go either way, you either love it or hate it. Honestly, I think there's a reason why. I'm not claiming this to be the truth, but I have seen this happen again and again on many occasions and even with myself when I first started dramas.

Many of the people who are giving this drama a good to moderate review, seem to be those who have not watched many dramas yet or have only been drama watching for a couple of years. Even when I first started my drama addiction, Panda and Hedgehog along with Full House Take 2 were some of the best dramas I had ever seen. Looking back on them, yeah they were good and cute, but there were so many more that were just, better.

As for the ones who seem to hate it or don't understand the hype, they are mostly what I would call veteran drama watchers. Those who have seen enough of the older dramas to recognize who the supporting roles are and can even tell in what drama the set has been previously used. These seems to be a majority of the people who can pick out the flaws a little better and were expecting more.

Now, not everyone, this is just some of my observation along with generalization, but this might help you decide if you want to watch this drama. If you're fairly new to dramas, you might like it. If you're a long time drama fan, you might not.

Anyway, I hope this can be of help. for my 2017 drama resolution, instead of resolving never to drop a drama, I am resolved to never force myself to watch one.

Even though this movie is not one of the best movies ever, it still holds onto my memory quite well. The storyline was also a bit cliche but I think the way it was executed made it okay, and it somehow managed to pull off being a bit heartwarming. There is something in this movie that makes me want to go back and watch it again to find out exactly what made me like it, at the same time I don't want to watch it again because I'm afraid it might make me realize that it is not as good as my first impression of it. I think many things could have been improved, so for this movie, it leaves me unsure as to how it weighs. Likable or not? I'm not sure, but I can say, I do not think it was a waste of time.

Hmmn, where should I begin? I have such mixed feelings about this film.

There are three major good points and three major bad points. I'll start with the bad points first.

Bad points: Story, Ghost, Timing.

Let me start off by saying first and foremost, that this story was lacking big time. And the reason for that is the motive of the ghost. I was honestly expecting something much more deep and complex. I suppose the writers thought family bonds were enough of a motive, which in some cases they can be; when there is more development. There are some scenes that especially confused me; I couldn't tell if there was possession going on or just crazy delirium. Both of which don't make a lot of sense with the storyline that was chosen. To top it all off, I feel like certain scenes were timed pretty badly and cause a lot of plot holes all in the name of building suspense. (Which didn't work.)

The good points: Acting, Music, Filmography.

Now to the good stuff~
The acting in this movie was totally on point. The way the actors portrayed their characters was just awesome, especially Kang Byul's acting. Her character switches behaviours frequently in this film and the actress keeps things interesting with each new behaviour that arises. Honestly, I have to say her character's behaviours were quite scary; scarier than the ghost as someone has already stated. Those crazy and odd behaviours that portrayed, when paired with the music and off balance camera angles, always had me on my toes. I kept expecting jump scares to happen, which threw me off for when there was an actual jump scare. It gave me chills occasionally and the way the camera was angled, made me feel like the characters were being stalked in more than one way which gave a pleasant element of creepiness.

All in all this was not a favourite movie choice, I personally felt like it was a slight waste of time and could have been done so much better. There were too many plot holes and things that weren't expounded upon enough to give a clearer picture or to make things more interesting. The end of the movie just left me feeling like: meh.

To be quite honest, even though this movie is marketed as one in the horror genre, you will not find too much horror here. Granted, while there were a few jumpscares and borderline gruesome moments, this movie lacked the right mix of elements to make it truly scary.

For example, the music is usually a key part in horror films, it keeps the suspense up and to keep to nerves on edge. Silence can also be a powerful tool, but they opted for more silence than any music which I personally find sad.

The best thing about this film was its storyline. It had so much potential, the story was very much like a fairytale and had a similar feel to the stories that have been written by the Brother's Grimm or Hans Christian Anderson. (In my personal opinion.)
I felt so much for the character Minna, she was truly a likable character, but the story lacked proper execution, which caused a lack of feelings and a sense of detachment from most of the characters. Which can either be seen as good because of certain deaths or bad as it didn't leave enough of an emotional impact for it to be scary or to cause the viewer to be worried about which character is in danger next.

When you mix several lacking elements with mediocre acting and scenes that are trying way too hard to be scary, you end up with a film that has an interesting storyline but leaves you unimpressed and detached. Usually you feel a sense of relief as a horror movie ends; knowing the character has successfully conquered the horrible experienses or it ends leaving questions and suspense causing you to question what would happen next; imprinting the movie into your memory.

Sadly, this movie is one I will most likely soon forget.
I wouldn't necessarily say it was a waste of time, it was lighter for those who can't handle full blown horror, but I will never recommend this movie to anyone who is a fan of the genre of horror.

Oh goodness! I can't even explain how much I liked this movie! Mostly because of Chan Yeol and Yuan Shan Shan's acting; Chan Yeol surprised me, he's pretty good at acting. Not to mention the fact that Chan Yeol is uber adorable and I thought the leading actress wouldn't be of any interest; however, I found her acting and looks just as cute and charming as Chan Yeol.

For those people who like a fresh and new story concepts, I'm sad to say you won't find that here. But! I personally think the way the actors interacted was pretty sweet and in a way "fresh". Then again, I am absolutely a fan of the cliché "Cinderella" stories and love/hate relationships. I don't know why, but for me, you can either make the cliché story your own or you can majorly fail.

I personally think that these two made it loveable and absolutely adorable! (The handcuff bit made me laugh so hard!)

All in all, I liked the movie for what it was: Light-hearted.
It's a great movie for anyone who has a little time before bed on a weekday night to unwind, have a couple of laughs at the cute and cliché couple and go to bed with a fluffy feeling inside.

I personally have a saying with food that I love to apply to movies as well: Don't knock it 'till you try it; loose the expectations, and experience it as it unfolds.

I really like horror movies; I don't know why, but I do.
But what I don't like, is a horror film with little to no real plot.

While this movie did seem interesting at first, it became very boring very quickly. The problem of this movie, was that there were too many plot holes and no real explainable plot. It was all sort of muddled and confusing.

People died without explanation as to why they were the target, the film relied on jump scares for the main element of horror and there's no real explanation as to why possession became possible in the first place.

I don't mind if a movie leaves a few loose ends for the person watching to determine and make up their own idea (like at the very last rooftop scene) but when in every corner there's an unanswered question, you start to become more frustrated with the situation than the characters of the movie.

Unless there is some symbolism I don't understand because the differing cultures of Korea and America, this film was very random and just not a very worthwhile watch in my opinion.
