I haven't watched a lot of kdramas, this one was the second and I started watching it by chance because it was on Netflix. It captivated me in the first episode, some of the scenes has an european cinema scent, for example the way they talk about sex or the way they show common things like going to the bathroom or having your period. The serie itself doesn't have a strong rythm until the last two or three episodes but the pace isn't boring at all, the construction of each character is wonderful and the production helps a lot, each chapter focuses in one of the five protagonists and the way it get interrelated with the stories of the other four girls. I usually look for dramatic series with strong dosis of romanticism, but this one about five young women living together, struggling to overcome their days and their fears and dealing with the little stuff of life like the convivence between young adults is just too enchanting to not fall in love with this kdrama. The cast is super good, I especially liked Han Ye Ri (Yoon Jin Myeong) and her stoic and yet moving acting, I couldn't control my tears when she was suffering in silence viewing how hard her life was, and Park Eun Bin (Song Ji Won) with her silliness and her existencials talks -I feel represented by her, that's maybe why-. The only one I didn't like that much is Park Hye Soo (Yoo Eun Jae), she's a bit plain and way too innocent for this kind of kdrama which hasn't have the typical girl protagonist with tons of aegyo, but anyways she won't be in season 2 so it's okey. The boys in this serie are lovely, enchanting and the chemistry with the five girls is good. The music fits perfectly but for me is not too remarkable. I'm really looking forward season 2. GO WATCH THIS, you won't regret it!!

Let me tell you this: I don't really understand how this drama is so well rated.

I don't usually write reviews but this drama has being such a disappointment that I want to spare you the pain and boredom of watching this. Along with mafia K-Dramas, my favorite genre is drama/romantic, but this drama is just so incomplete and it lacks argument and emotions.

I'm not going to lie, the 7-8 first episodes are very good, the plot is well thought, the photography and the OST are fantastic -it actually reminded me a bit of Goblin (a true masterpiece), the characters are interesting and it looks like is going to be a love-triangle with heartbreaking moments, but non of that happens... Let me explain:

Eventually the whole story of the trauma because "we were in an accident together 10 years ago gets worn out", is just not enough to keep the rhythm through 16 episodes each one more than 1 hour long, so the script stops making sense and a loop of "angry female lead and stubborn bad guy who is not that bad eventually, and ends up only needing love from an extraordinary girl who underestimate herself but everyone falls in love with her, but they're always fighting because they don't want to hurt each other" is just such a cliché that we got over it already in the Twilight movies... And with this the rest of the characters don't really fit in the story; the story of the manga drawer best friend in a wheel chair it's absolutely pointless and irrelevant, the chief architect ends up being just insipid guy with typical inner demons and an undeveloped background.

On the other hand I just can't stand the female lead, Won Jin Ah, she's so damn irritating, the character is just plain dumb and she's suffering all the time with any type of justification. The chemistry between Jun Ho and her was non existence, the kisses were chaster than usual, and she has the cringiest cry. Honestly the K-drama would have been a lot better if the female lead was different.

The worst part is probably towards the end where they end up making up a desease for the male character to justify three more episodes, but at this point I was just like, whatever I don't care if he lives or die.

The only good thing is obviously Jun Ho who is wonderful, I'm surprised at how good he is at acting, Kim Kong Hyun who is adorable and so soft and convincing in his acting, and the Madame Yoon Se Ah.

This is by far one of the worst K-Dramas I have ever watched and I don't really understand how I didn't drop it, so if you're planning to watch it have it mind that IS NOT THIS GOOD and if you love dramas with a lot of emotions and you enjoy suffering with the terrible lives of the characters and you like a good session of ugly crying and sobbing THIS IS NOT YOUR CHOICE. Seriously, go watch Goblin, Age of Youth, Incomplete Life or Moon Lovers instead, even Prison Playbook that it's a black comedy has more emotion.

This one is by far one of the best K-Dramas I have ever watched. I watched it with my mom and we were always grabbing each other hand to bare with the tension.

The first episodes are a bit slow but they always leave you hanging at the end of each episode and the second half of the drama is thrilling from start to end.

Save Me is also a very dark, heavy drama, don't watch it if you don't like to suffer. Is also very realistic, the ones that comment that it isn't.... Cults are terrifying, very real, they brainwash people and make them give up on their families and lifes. Also have in mind when you watch this drama that you as a western probably think "wow why doesn't she leave? It's so easy to scape" but South Korean Culture is completely different, you have a much hardcore submission towards elders and a sense of responsability and respect we usually lack, so I feel the female lead is very consistent and clever.

The cast is superior, I love everyone in this, the chemistry is mind blowing, the reactions are logical and very human too, I love the little moments that allow you to understand each character motivations and relations.

I enjoyed this SO MUCH. My life is now empty. If you're doubting, go watch it, it's worth it.
