Let me first explain how I got to watching this drama. I was going on a trip so I filled up on random dramas in case I got bored on the trip, among those dramas was this drama Stairway to Heaven, which I had heard so much about. So the trip comes and goes and one night I end up without internet, unable to sleep, and so I start watching this. In hindsight, I'm both glad and sad to have made that choice. Now onto the review:

Story: 11/10 (because 10/10 is just not enough!): The story is very unique for me (maybe because this was my first drama of this genre). You end up hating the stepmother/stepsister so much that you want to jump into their world, and stab both...repeatedly. What else can I say? Oh right, keep a box of tissues handy otherwise you'll be wiping away your tears using your blanket(true story!) One other thing I enjoyed about this drama is seeing how the main male lead and the secondary male lead work together to accomplish a goal greater than either of them.

Acting/Cast: 10/10 . Everyone in this cast from the child actors from the first few episodes to the adult actors were PERFECT. I had one small dislike in the middle of the drama, and that was how the main female lead cried. Yes. That's all. Later on, I got used to it and it didn't bother me at all, so it was just me.

Music 9/10: I'm actually listening to the OST as im writing this review. It's GREAT, but not a 10. It conveyed the emotion perfectly and all that, so it was good for the drama...but for some reason giving it a 10 would be unfair in my humble opinion.

Rewatch Value: 5/10: I DON'T rewatch dramas or movies 99% of the time which is why I gave it this low of a score.

Overall: 10/10 - This is a masterpiece that every Kdrama fan should watch. But keep in mind, this can cause tears even from the eyes of manly men like myself. However, sometimes while those tears are dropping, your mouth will be smiling uncontrollably.

When I first heard about this drama (before it started airing) I laughed at the plot and how very, very weird it sounded. However, since i've enjoyed some of Yamapi's past drama's I decided to check out the first episode...and then I got hooked!

Story 10/10: As odd as the plot sounded, this drama actually has a good amount of everything(except action...unless you count Yamapi running with music playing in the background as action.) The plot is fantastic, but I think the biggest obstacle to it's success was the fact that it deals with death(every single episode), and most people would rather not watch anything that has such a heavy subject in it. Personally, I didn't mind and rather enjoyed that unorthodox aspect of it.

Acting 10/10: Flawless and usual. Every single cast member was perfect. Yamapi, Eikura Nana, the actors who play the family members, and everyone else did an amazing job.

Music 7/10: I think I remember only one song or maybe they just had one song played over and over again. I can't remember. The one song was actually pretty good (Yamapi was the singer), but the lack of their being more memorable variety is what made me give it a 7/10.

Rewatch Value 6/10: I don't usually rewatch dramas but since the success of this drama doesn't really hinge on surprise, I would give this a 6 for rewatch (which is very high for me.)

Overall 10/10: I looked forward to new episodes of this drama every single week and that is rare for me. For people who haven't seen it yet, I would say at least watch the first episode and give it a chance. I'd even go as far as saying it's a masterpiece drama that deserves more fans.

I wish I could complain about this movie. Ok wait, i don't. This movie was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!



Story: 10/10 The story is one that will motivate you while tears stream down your eyes. It has themes of "High School" romance mixed in with following your dreams to the very end.



Cast/Acting 10/10 I couldn't ask for a better cast. They truly did a flawless job.



Music: 10/10 I still listen to the theme song by Yui (who also acted in this movie) two weeks after I watched the movie. The only "downside" about this movie is that you get addicted to the wonderful music by Yui.



Rewatch Value: 9/10 This is such a beautiful movie that I would definitely rewatch.



Overall 10/10 (i'd give it a 15/10 if I could!). Definitely watch this movie. You won't regret it.

This drama holds a special place in my heart as it's one of the few dramas where I would look forward to watching every week. The reason why I liked it so much, was because of it's witty dialogue, the wonderful chemistry between Mizushima Hiro, and Oguri Shun, and the absolutely hilarious moments as well as the serious moments in the show. Overall, the storyline is an 8 for me(because at the end I wanted more. The acting was perfect though. I loved the music as well, especially the insert song by EXILE. This drama is one of the few which i would say has a lot of rewatch value. Overall, this drama is a 9 for me. Hope you all enjoy :)

The story is very, very unique and interesting. It ties together at the end so perfectly that it can't be put in words(Ok, well it can, but I don't want to!) Takeshi Kaneshiro and the rest of the cast performed brilliantly. The music was alright, nothing spectacular, but it did serve its purpose well. As for rewatch value, i'm not one to rewatch movies and dramas, and I wouldn't really rewatch this one either, unless it's been several years since I first watched it. Overall though, this is one of my favorite movies and I really believe that more people should watch it. So if you haven't seen it yet, go watch it now &_&

I started watching this drama because the poster for this drama seemed amazingly "epic". However, it turned out to be false! This isn't a high budget action drama. Does that mean I was disappointed? Nope! Not at all! This drama has game references (which the subber did a GREAT job of noting), comedy, and even though it was low budget, it was a joy to watch.

Story 10/10: The storyline is actually pretty unique, at least from what i've seen. It's about a Hero who has to go out and defeat an evil entity who is bringing evil in this world! As someone else mentioned, it's somewhat like Monty Python, but it has it's own uniqueness. It also reminded me of the anime Gintama in a way.

Acting 10/10: They were all flawless.

Music 7/10: The music was good. It wasn't really memorable but it did it fulfilled its purpose.

Rewatch Value 6/10 : Since this drama doesn't really have many twists or turns, it's actually a good candidate for rewatching. I generally don't rewatch shows though, but if i'm ever extremely bored and for some reason cannot watch anything else, i'd watch this.

Overall 9/10: This was a short drama (12 episodes of 24 minutes each), but it was funny and interesting.

This was a drama that really surprised me. I didn't expect it to be so good. The story was incredibly unique, a mixture of Supernatural(ghosts/spirits) and romance! The acting was great and as a result of this drama I became a fan of Fukuda Saki. The music was great and I listen to the OST to this day. I'm not a rewatcher, which is why I gave it a 5. Overall though this is a great drama that i'd highly recommend to my friends.

This is the perfect drama for a Saturday where you have nothing planned. It has a unique storyline which you guys have already read about. It has a wonderful cast(even if Haruma is an idol, I think he did a great job here). The music wasn\'t outstanding but it was alright. Rewatch value, i\'d give it a 7 since im not exactly one who likes rewatching things unless they are EXTREMELY funny. But that\'s just my own personal bias. Overall I\'d give this an 9/10.

So I decided to watch this movie since it was the only Korean film on a plane I was taking. I had also heard that it was Korean's Oceans Eleven, and since I had enjoyed that movie, i decided to try out this one. I was NOT disappointed.

Story 10/10: The story is extremely interesting and has you on the edge of your seat. At first you hate a character, then you're not so sure, and by the end your view has flipped every which way.

Acting/Cast 10/10 : The cast did an extremely great job. They were absolutely flawless and I loved watching them act together.

Music 6/10: I don't really remember much about the music. It fulfilled its part but it didn't stand out and I wont' really listen to the ost.

Rewatch Value 4/10 : I don't rewatch movies or dramas. But if a friend wants to watch this I would watch it with them for sure. The greatest thing about this movie is the plot twists and already knowing them does kind of put a damper on the film.

Overall 9/10: It's definitely a must watch. Especially if you're fans of action/heist movies. If you love films with lots of plot twists, then this is the perfect film for you.

So this is a drama based off of the Manga and Anime by Gosho Aoyama. Previously there had been 3 Specials, the most recent of which stars the same cast as the ones in this drama. I haven't seen any of those, but as an avid fan of the anime, I was eager to watch this drama. And to date, it has yet to disappoint me. While yes the storyline isn't the same (the anime is based off of when Shinchi becomes a kid, while this one is just stories of Shinchi solving crimes). But nonetheless, the cases aren't bad, the acting is pretty awesome (especially Shinchi/Ran/Detective Mouri). The music is decent. Overall those, this is definitely one of the better anime to drama adaptations I have seen.

This movie had potential...but while it wasn't a bad movie, it failed to live up to it's potential in my eyes. It didn't explain why anything really happened, and the last 5 minutes left me scratching my head. Other than that, i LOVED the use of foreigners speaking perfect Korean as the two side characters. The music conveyed the mood perfectly. As for rewatch value, it's an alright movie to rewatch. Overall this movie is getting an 8, mainly because i felt like it didnt explain a lot of stuff.

This is one of my favorite dramas, but i've tried my hardest to be very unbiased in this review.



First, the story line is absolutely brilliant. It has many twists that'll keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the 11 episodes.



Second, the cast did an amazing job. The characters had tons of chemistry etc.



The music was pretty good. It served its purpose very well.



For Rewatch Value, generally im not someone who rewatches dramas or movies, but i'd have to give this a 7 because it has enough twists that after a year or so you can definitely rewatch it.



Overall, im giving this drama ten for its relatively unique storyline, wonderful acting, and generally for being such a great drama.

This drama really had been on the edge of my sit till the very end. It's one of those dramas where the producers throw you a twist in every episode, and for that reason I really liked it. The storyline was something I enjoyed pretty well, and the cast did a great job in making that happen. The music was great as i still listen to the songs sometimes. The rewatch value is pretty low since for dramas that are based off of twists and turns, once you already know what's going to happen, it loses the wow factor. Overall though, I'm giving this an 8, since this is really a top tier drama.

The story of this drama is incredibly unique, at least compared to all the dramas i've seen. The Cast and Acting was terrific and as a result of both the Story and the Acting, I truly felt an emotionally attachment to the characters, and how they changed. The music also furthered my emotional attachment to the drama. While I don't like rewatching drama, Ninkyo Helper is actually a drama I believe I could rewatch, since the element of surprise enhances the story, but in general, it's not essential to making the drama interesting.

Overall, i'm giving this drama a 10, and I fell like every Jdrama fan who enjoys the Crime/Yakuza and Family genres, should watch this.

When i started watching this drama I was looking forward to a generic romance comedy drama and this is exactly what this is. It's not bad, it's not BRILLIANT, but it's decent. The story is relatively ordinary, though it did get me to laugh and feel sad in some occasions(otherwise i wouldn't watch), but it wasn't an amazing drama. That being said, I did like the Cast and their acting. The music was okay. As for rewatch value, like I always say, i'm not much of a rewatcher, especially for an ordinary drama like this. Overall, this drama gets a 7 from me. It's a drama that is perfect for extremely boring Saturday evenings.
