I usually drop comedy dramas like Otomen after the first 5 mins, but this drama is really cute.

From the first Episode to the last one I had a smile on my face.

Seeing how Asuka is trying to hide his true self is somehow exciting.
I liked how his arch rival Tonomine turns every woman into a butterfly.
How Tachibana stalks Asuka and Ryo tries to protect Asuka.
Every character has its own cuteness they are the reason this drama should be watched.

Its not one of the super great manga adaptions like Hana Yori Dango or others, but its a drama I´m happy I watched.

Why watch a movie that is just 30 mins? Just to feel good!

While watching İ was really curious about how the story will develop. Usually İ would feel weird seeing so many diffrent scenes in a short time and they are not really connected, but while watching this you don't feel weird. No its quite the opposite. The scenes shot are all great and have a story of their own.. The cast is doing a good job, though the movie is not even half the length of a usual movie. Just take the time and watch this lil cute movie.

Why did I even watch this drama? Because of the name and Hyun Bin.
Why did I continue watching it? Because of Sung Yu Ri and the great story.

The story starts off as an ordinary story, but at an unexpected point it turns into a deepp story. You get dragged along by Han Tae Wong and Kim Bo Ra's bitter sweet lovestory. You feel their pain and joy.

Hyun Bin and Sung Yu Ri pull of their roles in an overwhelming way. I especially loved Sung Yu Ri's performance.
the overall cast is good and also the side stories are adorable.

The music is very fitting and you are being pulled in the story by the music.

For the fangirls out where: Hyun Bin is an eyecandy not to be overlooked. Sweating Hyun Bin ;)

I gave this drama a 10/10 score even though someone spoiled the ending for me.

Would I rewatch it? Yes, I want to rewatch it, but as I don't have that much time.

Enjoy the drama, but have a box of tissues in your reach.

Have you ever watched Disney's Mulan? Its funny as hell, but its nothing more than lies. As a Disney fan I always wanted to know more about real Mulan. Upon reading somewhere about the upcoming Mulan movie I just waited patiently. Of course I couldn't wait for the subbed versions. Being that excited I even watched it first in really poor quality and still this movie got me.
Hey this masterpiece of a movie even overcomes bad quality.
Since I found vids in good quality I'm watching this movie whenever I have time.
For a person who hates war and blood I'm suprized myself. Never ever did I love a bloody war movie enough to watch it again.

The acting is just great. You even get to feel with the actors. That one special scene with the soldiers singing.....ohhh man...

The music fits the movie very good and the soldiers singing at that one point is just amazing.

Rewatch value? Mulan is one of the few movies I watched over and over again.

Just watch this movie. It is one of the best movies ever.
Noone should be disappointed by this movie.

Have you ever thought about your future? Han Seung Wan and Jung Se Jin have and they are determined to fullfil their dreams of becoming a pilot and a diplomat.
But both never thought of ending up with a comlete stranger in a hotel in Singapur. That one night changes the lives of the two!
Now Seung Wan and Se Jin have to live what other ppl do the reversed way. Falling in love, dating, marrying and than having a baby out of love.
This drama is different from the dramas I have watched before. The charcters are very nice and suit their actors very good. The girl actress is very cute and though she is definitly not a professional she gives you goosebumps at some scenes.
Throughout the drama I smiled, laughted, got angry and cried.
This drama doesn`t seem like a high scale production, but with its cute and (in my opinion) believable story it makes up for all the missing glimglim.
Ohh, and the fact that this drama is not a constante good girl/boy beats bad girl/boy or bad girl/boy beats good girl/boy makes it much better.

The Princess Man got a perfect score from me, because it pulled off every genre. I laughted, cried, hold my breath, trembled.....

The beginning of the drama is a cliche in my opinion, but the actors are very good and so you don't get bored. Later on the story doesn't let go of you and your emotions.

All the characters are being introduced in a good way. They don't stay as 2D characters, but are 3D. You don't just see the development of the main couple, but also the development of the side characters like the princess, the best friends and so on.
Believe me or not I loved the villian. No matter what bad he did I so wanted to forgive him. I so wanted him to turn good.

The OST is one of the best I ever heard. Wow, how the many songs moved me to tears at time. Hell, I even cried for the happy moments. The songs are all on my Mp3 and I get the same emotions everytime I listen to them.

Did I mention the acting? All actors do a good job. Park Shi Ho not only shows of his good looks and abs, but also an outstanding performance.
Moon Chae Won showed her great acting skills through this drama. Her chemistry with PSH was very good and you could feel their love.
Lee Min Woo as Jung Jong just broke my heart with his acting. Song Jong Ho was so good as the villian.

I don't think I'll ever rewatch this drama again, but I recomment it to everyone.

As said its one of the best drama ever.

Who would have thought that I`d watch a drama for the main female lead?
But I did it. Saw the girl in Good Life-Arigatou and I liked her.
This drama was on my to watch list for a while, but as I realized that its that woman in it I just started watching it. All the actors are really good, as usual for a jdrama.
The story is well built and is very interesting.

Why watch a drama thats about working in a company? Now, this drama depicts very nicely that working in such an environment is not easy, but can also be very good.
It shows that not all guys who are doing wrong are bad.
Everybody has its own struggels and gives his stress out on somebodyelse. If they hurt you its not always because they want to hurt you, but that they hurt themselves.
I stop right here and hope you will give this drama a go, cause I myself will rewatch it in near future.

So its been 2 years since I watched this drama in a go. Yup, me who can't really dramathon dramas watched 21 eps in 2 days while also going to lessons.

What is so great about this drama to even suck in me this intense?

The drama starts very fast and the pace goes on in the same speed. The story doesn't drag.

The music fits, but sometimes I'd like the scenes to be silent. I still listen to the OST at times.

The acting is just awesome. I don't like Van Nes Wu. Yes, I hate his face and he looks so clumsy, but he did his job very good. Ady An....wow...that woman is just beautiful. She suits her role so good. I really really loved her. The boy actor is a diffrent caliber, so cute.

Chris Wu as Hua Tuo Ye was really believable, the way he acted and all. I want to have a friend like that. Also all the other actors did their job good. The only one I didn't like this much was the fiancee.

I already rewatched it so the rewatch value is high.

Don't fret because of the 21 ep or because you don't like Van Nes Wu like me just give it a try.

Do you like beautiful scenes? Ikuta Toma and drama as real as life?

If your answer is YES go straight and watch Osozaki no Himawari.

Reading the review might be giving off a very boring flair, but its not the least boring.

Most of my friends know that I love slow pace( but solid) drama. The story is very well told and you don't get upset by the way the whole drama goes. The topics of the drama are very unusually, its not just the love between lovers that is shown. You see the love between neigbors, between friends and family.

The acting is very firm. Ikuta, Kiritani, Maki and all the others pull off a very strong act and you think they really live it.

The beautiful scenerie is a bonus of the drama.

The OST is like every japanese drama OST not very varied, but the theme is soo good and fitting. The fact that the theme song is sung by all the main actors makes it even better.

Why not go and watch the drama now?

İ started to watch this drama without any expectations. By the first Ep İ liked it. Yes, the story is not full of tension and all that stuff that ppl like, but it was a nice developing love story or should İ say love stories?

İt was nice to see that in drama characters can fell in love without big problems. As for the actors: Yeah the main lead is not the best actor, he still acted well enough in this drama. Park Shin Hye is cute and adorable and fits in her role. The other side characters are all nice and quite believable, not like side characters in other dramas. İf you want to watch a drama that makes you feel nice this drama is the right thing. Don't expected too much, but at least the music is worth the watch.

While my sis, her friend and I were waiting for the ppl coming out of the cinema salon we were shocked as how many actually came out with puffy eyes.

I personally had absolutely no expectations for the movie, but the puffy eyes frightened me as I am built near the water. However, every tear was worth it.

The story was appealing to me, because at the time of the Korean War my mother’s uncle was one of the Turkish soldiers, he returned wounded and died leaving a few weeks old daughter behind right upon return. So the story being a true story gives the whole movie an extra notch of authenticity.

The movie shows war in a more human way, not only it’s kill or be killed side. It was told in a way that everyone could see sth from themselves in the story. The Marylin Monroe sequence got me all emotional.
Usually I hate the main actor, but he did such a splendid work in this movie. Also all the other actors, especially the lil girl did a great work.

The OST was really suitable for the movie and fit the emotions. After I came out of the cinema I thought I wouldn’t watch it again, but I think I was wrong as I just watched it on TV 2 days ago.

As a side not, I was at the scene were Süleyman is at the train station, but of course waiting in my train. Every weekday I get through the train station and a few Turkish drama and movie scenes have been filmed at that historic station, so I wasn’t interested in the filming at the time. But in the cinema I remembered the green truck in the background.

Try the movie if you can find it with subs you won’t regret it.

This is one of the greatest movies ever, but is not a movie that is liked or better to say understood by many. The story develops not based on talking, but just develops based on acting.
The acting is great! One of the best I've seen so far. The whole movie is very well made.
Its a masterpiece....

After watching it on TV I wanted to rewatch it. I searched for it in internet and in real life.
Can't tell how happy I was then I finally found it.

Why I wrote this? Just to get you to watch this!

My first...no...second japanese movie watched in the cinema.
I love this movie.
Most of the ppl who watched this movie think that the movie is lacking something.
Its the speed that is lacking, but I love slow drama and movies.

The story is heartwrenching, if you are also built near waters.
The acting is very very very good. The kids and adults are doing a great job.
The music fits very good and the theme by Ken Hirai is still one of my favs.

Every year I watch this mvie again and will watch it again.

Watch it if you are okey with the slow pace.
I don't think its a waste of time. One of my favorite movies.

Love, love, love, love, love......

Maybe its the slowest movie I ever watched, but can you love a movie like that? Yes, you can!

Though the quality of the vids I used were very bad, I was drown in the movie until the last minute.

Both main actors do their job 100 percent. I loved how they act in a similiar way, just like the movie needed it.

The music is not that good, but it also doesn't bother you or disturb the story.

If I could do I would have given the movie a 10***** score.

Rewatch value? Dunno how many times I rewatched it.

Just watch this movie.

You need eyecandy? Takeshi Kaneshiro is the manliest eyecandy you can get.

Wow, it’s been 2 years since I watched this drama.

When I dived into this drama the only reason for me was Odagiri Joe. What I was left with after completing the drama in one sitting was a bunch of feelings.

This drama is like life itself, you don’t have a clear ongoing storyline, but still the story flows by slowly like the lil water in the backyard of the shop.

The characters were nearly all as insecure about life, love, money and employment as my real life friends are at their age.
You can find yourself very clearly in their struggles.
They were just lovely, hateful, funny and merciless as all of us.

The OST was perfect for the drama and reflected the emotions in a good way.

I’m sure one day I’ll watch it again.
