Instant Favourite. I had to boot out one my all-time favourite dramas in my list to make room for this one, the moment i finished watching it.
This drama has everything you would expect from and Asian drama AND more. It's all i thought about for days, I literally dreamt of the characters when i slept.
The story, although it is appears to be a stereotypical 'good girl meets bad boy' theme, is actually far more deeper then that. The girl wasn't always so reserved, and the boy wasn't always such a womanizer. It really touches upon the consuming physiological problems that tragedy can create. Its normal to see the male lead 'change' throughout the drama and become a better person while falling in love with the female lead, but it is extremely rare to see both characters changing so much; together.
The acting was amazing. That's to be expected with Barbie and Vic. I laughed and i cried with these characters. I felt their heartbreak as much as my own.
Its the rare kind of drama that gets better with each passing episode, and at the end you just wish you could watch it all over again with new eyes.
I would recommend this to anyone.

I'm so surprised when i hear that a lot of people have never heard of this drama. i feel like it should be a classic. The story is very original and different from the typical rich boy, poor girl type that we usually see. Its a first time ive seen a drama deal with age difference being the main problem in the relationship, especially not when its the girl who is older.
i absolutely loved the fact that this drama was sort of... risqué. It doesn't try to conceal the truth about relationships and talks about couples sleeping together as it is; a normal thing. This is something i have NEVER even come close to seeing in a Korean drama. The acting was really good. Also, the character's were all pretty realistic too. There wasn't any "crazy" psycho girl that you want to punch in the face, like a lot of dramas these days. I really, really loved this drama and i can't wait to watch it again. This is definitely one of my favourites.

Although I gave this a 9 overall, i feel it really deserves a 10 in my books. Wow okay, where so I even start? This drama has everything, from handsome rich billionaires, to (apparent) ugly poor girls and all the love-triangles and crazy ex girlfriends in between. It is definitely the stereotypical Asian drama but if you aren't sick of that sort of thing yet, then this is the drama for you! If you are, then what are you still doing watching Asian dramas? ;)
The acting was amazing! Especially on Ming Dao's part. He played both Junhao and Da ou so completely well that it actually made you believe they could be different people. The female lead... made me want to throw my laptop out the window and never turn on this drama again. HOWEVER, when i did warm up to her after a few episodes she became one of my favorite characters and most of the reason i continued to watch.
The music was not the best but it fit the mood. I think they had like two tracks, one sad and one happy where they would play each episode at their respected parts. I found this amusing more then anything else. reminded me of bof and 'almost paradise'.. XD
Despite there being 30 episodes to this drama, I enjoyed every single one of them. At episode 15, i remember thinking what could they possibly add to this story to fill 15 more episodes? But they somehow magically did! watching the last few episodes I felt so sad knowing it was ending and wishes there could be 15 more.
I would definitely watch this drama again. I'm not the hugest fan of Taiwanese dramas either because I don't know the language as well as Korean and Japanese but this one surprised me :) I would definitely recommend it ^^

Let me start off by saying, if you have a weak stomach then this movie is definitely NOT for you. It can get pretty gory at some parts. This movie is nothing like your typical Korean movie at all. I actually watched it for my Asian cinematography class almost eight years ago and have loved it ever since.. although i still don't understand why it would be considered educational. The acting is absolutely brilliant. The story line is pretty messed up in a creepy horror movie sort of way. If you like these kinds of movies you wont be disappointed ^^

I feel like this is probably an unpopular opinion, however I found this drama to very mediocre... For a show that keeps pushing the idea that beauty isn't everything and personality matters more, you would think they would give the two leads some pretty interesting personalities to work with. But no, the two leads were the most uninteresting characters I think I have ever come across in a Korean drama. The only "chemistry" they had, was the fact that they were both in the chemistry department at school. The male lead seemed to only have one facial expression; brooding. His only attractive quality (pretty much his only quality in general) was that he was extremely attractive. And even that was spoonfed to us each episode by characters needing to excessively point out that fact. When the two leads were in scenes together it was almost painful to watch. The only character who actually had depth was Soo Ah.

The story? There basically was none. Pretty much everything that happens in the drama is written in the description for this drama...

I also feel I need to point out that this drama seems to be being praised left and right for apparently having a strong message, but it completely fails to deliver when it has multiple product placement ads for weightloss tools such as real diet pills and drinks. What a joke.

I'm not the biggest fan of Yoona so i was reluctant to watch this drama even though it's lead was Kwon Sang Woo. I'm really glad i ended up watching it though. The acting is very well done. Sang Woo plays both people so well that it makes you actually believe they could be completely different actors. I feel like this drama really deserves more credit than its gotten. It isn't so popular because it claims to be about the two men that look exactly alike where as its really only about one of the men, and Yoona. Definitely worth watching. Very good movie. Make me respect Yoona a lot more as an actor as well.

A lot of people who loved the original anime and manga really do not like this drama. That's completely understandable because you are taking fictional characters and asking actors to portray them in a realistic way. For me though who both loved the anime and manga i also LOVED this Live action adaptation. Yamamoto Yusuke was born to play Tamaki. The actors all brought the 2-D characters to life. I could not pull myself away from a single episode and was so sad when i heard they were cutting it short to 11 episodes. Less then half of original manga is portrayed in the drama because of the amount of episodes and also the length of episodes. Despite that, this was still an amazing show. It's the kind of show that makes you smile from beginning to end. I will continue to rewatched this drama multiples.

I'm not a big fan of Jang Geun Suk at all but I really enjoyed this drama. I hadn't heard anything about it so I just gave it a try and LOVED IT. the story was actually pretty interesting. it sounds like your typical "poor girl running from debt collectors that her father has brought upon her when she meets a gorgeous young chaebol son"... except it has a big twist that sets it apart from the stereotypical drama. I really enjoyed it. AWESOME music. great acting.. okay i think i need to watch this drama again like RIGHT NOW.

Wow. Just.. Wow. This movie was pure awesome. I usually detest gangster/killing type movies and tend to like more 'romance' but this one has really surprised me. The story was so in-depth but at the same time, simple. The acting was outstanding, which i am also extremely surprised about not that im not a Gackt and Hyde fan, i just didn't know they could act THAT well. Their character's bond in this movie pulled at my heart and left me in tears at some points.
From beginning to end, this movie is a full 10 for me. I hope you enjoy it as much as i do. take care ^^

From episode one, i was completely hooked. This Drama is ridiculously funny. Yea, Yea, its the typical "rich Chaebol son meets poor girl" love story.. but its soo much more then that. Being a huge Cassie for many year, I began watching this Drama for the simple fact that Jaejoong played an important role.. but soon enough i was rooting for the other actor who i had never even seen before and didn't care at all if Jaejoong's character jumped in a hole and just stayed there for the remaining episodes. was that harsh? forgive me. just go watch this drama. The acting is great. The story is Great. You will laugh until you pee.

I really liked this drama at the start, but it really did not need to be 20 episodes long. It dragged out the same story WAY too much. The story-line was really refreshing and different and contained some twists. The acting was also very good. Overall it was a good drama. It seems its only real downfall is that the same story was dragged out as far as it could and became boring.

It is very rare that i give a review with a full 10 under every category even for my favourite movies and dramas but this one really does deserve it. The plot is so original along with all the characters. The acting was so well done that the characters seemed very real, even the 'Ghost' type characters were surprisingly well done. The music was perfect; it made it so that one second you're in awe of the romance, the next you are in horror. I've never seen let alone heard of a movie like this. I will definitely watch this again, and again.

This review may contain spoilers
I contemplated writing a review of this drama for so long. Because i had not seen all 16 episodes, i thought myself unfit to review Dream High 2... But i have come to the conclusion that I will never finish this drama, so now is a better time then any to finally write a review.
Let me start off by saying, I did genuinely enjoy some parts of this drama, which led me to continue watching until the 14th episode where i finally gave up.
It seems the best part of this drama was the music, which of course coming from JYPE was very good. The story was mediocre at best.. It started off on a good note with a completely different plot from the first season which i liked a lot because you can't have the same thing twice. Unfortunately it went all down hill from there.
The two leads (i consider them the leads, but really I'm not sure at all..it was that confusing) have absolutely no chemistry whats so ever which is strange because one would think a popstar dating a talentless nobody would be pretty interesting. it ended up being quite the opposite. When they finally do get together they suddenly both become shells of their former quirky selves and I just can't wait for them to break up. This is as close to a spoiler as ive ever written in a review so im going to stop here.
The main antagonist is just completely unrealistic and unreasonable.
It's not very clear what the actual big 'conflict' is in this drama.. its really just a bunch of random occurrences.
That's all i really have to say. Maybe one day i'll watch the last two episodes and my mind will change, but i doubt two episodes can make up for 14 mediocre ones. take care ^^

This movie will take your heart and twist it into ways you can't even imagine. It's been a long time for me, that a movie has actually lived up to all its 'hype'.
The story, although very original, gives you a warm sense of familiarity. Everyone can relate to a story about first love.
The acting was outstanding. By far greater then I ever expected. I found myself at times screaming at the screen in disbelief. I probably used an entire half of a tissue box alone watching this.
I would rewatch this any time. Probably multiple times. And it's one of those movies that you don't have to be into Asian movies to see the beauty of. I recommend it to anyone.
take care ^^

This movie is unreasonably childish, but hilarious at the same time.
The story is pretty straightforward and the acting is well done. I really enjoyed the fact that the female lead was such a strong independent character. She did anything and everything to get her way and never took no for an answer.
There were a few things i didn't like such as the actual 'romance' completely lacking between the two leads.. They barely have any screen time alone, and other then the fact that she needed him to save her life, they didn't seem to even like each other very much :/
Overall I thought it was a pretty good movie. Definitely worth it to watch it.
