This drama is really worth sinking your teeth into it -it's so good! It is inherently an investigative procedural with a supernatural twist that doesn't make you cringe because you may have a what the heck was those fx effects for. With each episodes the writers peels away layers of the story to ultimately reveal motives of the human heart. Our leading man Yun Jung Hoon in the role of prosecutor Min Tae Yeon uses his Vampiric prowess to solve violent crimes and I have to say that his portrayal his just perfect if you can look away of the eyeliner that in my opinion is just put a little to excess. The truth is in the blood--a taste of a victim's blood shows him glimpses of the last moments before death. Thrilling, sympathetic and so fresh--this show is a pleasure to watch. The biggest mystery surrounds Prosecutor Min Tae Yoon, tragic past in tow, who was turned into a Vampire under murky circumstances by an unknown sire. We're given juicy tidbits of clues along the way, and episodes are getting more interesting as characters continue to develop and the story gains depth. Top ratings for this innovative new drama--one of the best I've seen. A big reveal in EP 11...what a twist! And season 2 is being strongly considered right now. My only complaint and just because of that I did not give the drama a 10 is Lee Young Ah as Yoo Jung In the daughter of a mafia leader ( reveal in ep 10) who to escape her upbringing decided to live for the law. I don't really know how to get along with her characters , her acting seems force and her action rash, it seems to me like the writers don't really know what to do with her characters. Other than that nothing much to say now.

Story : What to say other that this drama was beautifully written, the story unfolded so naturally that we naturally traveled with the characters. It was written with the perfect amount of wit, laughter, sadness and utter respect for the age group that it was portraying.


There's nothing to say much about the cast, they played their characters perfectly to the point where it was easy to get irritated, to laugh, cry along with them. Each and every actor brought their characters to life in style and color.

The Music was just a perfect match to each of the situation they were supposed to be matched with.

I would totally recommend this drama if you are looking for a well adjusted drama about life that's clean funny and relaxing. Even if you are not in your 40's this drama is written so beautifully that it's easy for anybody to actually relate to and be like "oh that could so totally be me."


SO in clear if you are looking for a funny well adjusted and well written drama there you have it try this one just take a sit back and be charmed by all those oppas who are going to make you feel like life is just oh so well good ...

This drama is BRILLIANT it adds a supernatural element to a revenge mystery/crime story and that what makes it unusual. The writing and characters are well balanced.To really appreciate the depth of this drama you have to be willing to watch something with less romance, and lots of psychology. It really powerful to see how one of the characters uses other greed, sins and fears, to exact revenge. Since he is a manipulator, he is like a "devil" working in the background... and you won't be able to pin any of the crimes on him. The Devil is perfection in terms of production,scripting & acting, the music could have been better.It was intelligently-written and incredibly well-acted.JJH was phenomenal!! Granted it is dark,intellectually perplexing and tragic.In fact,I am going as far as to say that it's not suitable for the faint-hearted. It really shows in a simple manner that people are not completely good or bad.That there is a cost of in everything that we do but that no matter what we choose be it revenge or ignorance there's always a way that allows us to contemplate the possibility of redemption and forgiveness for people who,because they have lived in darkness for so long,have committed unforgivable deeds for the sake of a purpose they deem justifiable.I still in shock that this drama is so unrated and really not see as a blockbuster. The Devil is very a deep and complex drama that actually lets the viewers immerse themselves in the story and feel for all of the characters, making you pose at each turn and ask yourself would I have done better.People who are used to watching more mainstream dramas would probably not be able to appreciate it if they do not watch it with an open mind.

A real heart-wrenching drama. Even thought I complained at time at the pace of it, I came to the realization that he would not have been this good a drama if it had been fast pace. Kim Rae Won and Soo Ae acting was so real, even all the supporting cast manage to make in sort that this drama set itself apart from all the other. There's nothing really nothing that can't be forgiven about this drama, because of course it would be utopic to actually say that it was a perfect drama, but like I say all the negativeness about it can be forgiven. I would say that to watch people should be ready to acknowledged the fact that life is not always peachy and that not all story have an happy ending.

So while I was siting here trying to figure out what I could add to the praise that this drama is receiving , I just thought hell just say what you think.

I was mesmerized by this drama, because the acting has just so raw and flawless, the cast truly complemented each other, they covered for each other flaws and blended seamlessly. It was a pleasure to watch them act, so if you really have reservation about watching this drama, throw them away because even if the story doesn't resonate with you, the acting will pull you in.

The Music was really soothing and beautiful, it got a 8.5 from me because well I was mostly only into two songs, the rest I just found them passable , but I think that they superposed them to the scene on screen pretty well.

I have to admit that has everyone was saying that the show brought them to tears, I did not cry one bit that is why it's not getting that 10 that would have established it has a masterpiece for me. I laughed at the right places, and got sad but I did not get to the heart-wrenching desperation that some viewers felt, and I think that his one of the flaw if this drama, it easily brought to tear criers but it did not try to reach the extra mile for those who don't cry easily.

I'm suspecting that the writers just lean too easily on the actors and director excepting them to do all the work to deliver her work.

Anyway do not let these things keep you away from good entertainment thought. Because I feel that these drama kind of prove that there is still hope for K-dramas actors and that we have actors out there that can act.
So I don't know if this will be helpful but I felt like I should say it . have fun watching.

In Fathers House Choi Min-soo in his acting return gave it is all, but we should not leave out young rising actor Kim Soo-hyun, who had recently drew buzz for his performance playing Go Soo's younger character in Will It Snow For Christmas, And Sam Dong in Dream High. Their performance is just out heartbreaking and so strong-felt, there's no doubt that when watching this drama that is about a man(Choi Min-Soo) who has a one-night stand with a woman (Moon Jung-hee).Who because he has to serves some time in prison leaves her alone, it isn't until he is released that he realizes he has become a father; the mother has dropped off the boy with his closest relations (a man who is like a father figure to Choi character) and headed back home to the U.S. We are then taking through a series of event that show us how he becomes a loving father who is able to sacrifice anything for his song. The best thing to do while watching this is to have a great box of tissues ready, because you will be move once more has Choi shows that he's indeed a disgusting good actor who when he's ready to move you does it to the core.

To be fair I have to warm you that is a totally biased opinion, because I has a fan of the first installment of the drama , I felt totally cheated with the direction that these opus took. If I was fair and still try to rate this show I would just say that if you took away the music there were nothing good to redeem this show in my eyes, it was over acted, scattered to the point of totally loosing me, I wonder most of the time what was going on. The addition of new characters that pop out of nowhere it was as if the writers where writing the story has they went. To be true I came back too it just because I like watching Jung Jinwoon , oh yes there were a lot of eyes candy in these drama , probably the only thing that brought many viewers back, trying to support they little sweet tooth ( even though it's the eyes that get satisfy.) I not even going to try to explain that ending , it was simply disappointing. So my recommendation is too watch this when you really have nothing to do, it's raining outside and you are looking for a well construct story that can keep your attention, then you are welcome to waste 16 hours of your life on Dream High 2.

This movie as a World Class Presentation, excellent Cinema work. Definitely worth the time that one spend to watch it, if people just more than watching pretty picture when their are watching a movie. There is Much to Learn at all ages, it refers to the main character devotion to paragliding and how he uses it to bring himself closer to the girl he lost then finds again and then in the end... The movie is a young love story about a boy who falls in love with a girl but for her own reasons keeps him at a distance to avoid hurting him/herself but it just doesn't end that way. The movie carries on into a more dramatic story with a nice soft ending about losing someone you love.

What can I say that hasn't been already been said, the chemistry of the two lead is probably what brought me back to this drama until the end. Of Course the story was original and was very promising in my opinion until ep 11 were due to some heath issues , the writers were switch. After the switch how could I qualified the drama, well the storyline in my opinion when to the toilet, but the two lead just kept pulling us in. Well the end was cute, but It could have been epic. But Still I would recommend it. It's somewhat worth the watch.

Although I wanted to slap the lead female throughout the drama, I was also totally shipping for her to recover her memories and family,so by the end of the drama I was fairly satisfied hence the 9/10 instead of 10.

If not going to waste my saliva or fatigued my fingers on the issue , but if you feel that you must overlooked this drama because someone may had badmouth it or a reviewer did not give it a high enough grade, then you should not blame anyone else but yourself for missing out on a true uniquely almost gem drama.

I have my "gringe" with this drama hence I did not give it a higher note, but if you really want to see great acting it's a must see, especially from the older cast, they had me totally hooked, same with the younger version is seems as the western standard for acting his going down the toilet, great germ are emanating from the east.

Acting aside the reason this drama should not be pass over is probably because of the message that is conveyed a simply touching and adorable story. With a powerful message of forgiveness.

So if you want to watch a drama that is fairly well acted and fairly wonderfully written then this must be your pick.

So what to say about Hi My Sweetheart! Other than the fact that it spend 3 years whole years in my Too Watch list. I was being super hesitant too watch it, and I can say that even though I did not give it a 10 or a 9 that it was totally worth my time. Even though the story was not new, it was still original enough. The actors if you take out the three playing the "belles" where actually really believable and cute. The Only reason why this drama did not get a 10 from me his probably because I felt that the drama could have easily been wrap up in 9 episode or 10 if they really wanted to go with the even number. Because truly their misunderstanding was so simple that he did not have to been spread over like that. But other than that this drama is a great pick me up if you are down. Because you are probably going to laugh form episode 1 to the last . They just seriously kill you with their cuteness.

I'm a huge Kim Sun Ah and Cha Seung Wong Fan and I have to say that I loved every minutes of this show. And man All of Cha Seung Wong Dramas have great ending ... I really applaud their dedication in touching subjects that people usually shy away from, because it's a know true that very few people want to mention the themes of unemployment, poverty, agricultural sovereignty, political and corporate corruption, pollution( although not really something hammered on.) and collusion this drama presents.Besides partisan politics and what constitutes democracy. Although the drama start a little slow it's doesn't slide awa y of the marks once it find it's marks. It's definitively a wonderful feel-good romance with adults, adult feelings and drama that was believable and compelling.I personally was one of those person who didn't want to watch it because I didn't feel like getting into a political show, and deal with all political jargon and all other headaches that usually comes with politics but after starting it I realize that though there were obviously political issues throughout the show, it was first and foremost a love story that put a huge mile high smile plastered on my face and make you say wow. Since watching it last year ( well we are in 2012 and all) I have rewatched it times. It is the top ten of my recommended drama.

This Ang Lee film was very than deserving. The story of a group of students in Japanese-occupied Shanghai in the 1940s who decide to join the resistance movement against the occupation of Japan.
One of the young woman in the group volunteers to seduce a dangerously callous high-ranking official in the government, who has been denounced as a national traitor. This action proves to be a rude and hard awakening to the inexperienced and naive group of friends. This movie could be said to be a "suspenseful, edge-of-your-chair story complete with a highly stylized appearance" even when a lot of other review batch it I still felt that the staff did a great job with the costumes and backdrops making them into colorful and magnetic field that attract the senses.

The actors/actresses expressions and careful words just show how skilled they were even in acting in a more sinister tone genre.


This film easily captivate the attention, If you are afraid of the explicit sex scenes well you may just pass a good movie for naught. I personally didn't object to them in the least, but I was not expecting much from them to begin with. Well before to watch this you must be sure that you are not offended by explicit sex scene or crude subtitles, I would at least recommend this for the dynamic and feel of the movie.

This a totally biased review so lol there is no need to think to much about it.

What to say well I have to say that if you want to start this drama one may need to be ready to throw tantrums, to cry, laugh, outraged, enraged, happy being means and one must be also able to handle disappointment , because their are many time you will be ready to throw in the towel and go in quest of the writers for a plan murder of your own. Other than that this was a really good story with a really consistent acting, if you take out Yoon Je Moon who I really think was trying to hard to portray the psychotic evil character of Kim Bong Gu, and if you also take out the poor foreign actors that were supposed to play the different English speaking people on the drama, then you are left with truly amazing performance... My hat goes to Jo Jung Suk as
Eun Si Kyung, he played his role to the perfection to the point that when comes the end you will discovered a really powerful reason to go and hunt down the writers like I say !!.. Lee Seung Ki as Prince Lee Jae Ha truly shows the maturity that Seung Ki had gone through for being always portray as a little boy who doesn't want to grow up, he show us that he can also act in the skin of a grown man who is not afraid of respectability, but still know how to nurse the child inside him who his ready to make you see the beauty of life when all else seems dark. Ha Ji Won as Kim Hang Ah of reaffirm her title has an action queen, but she also shows us that we cannot count her out for the girly roles either.Lee Yoon Ji Princess Lee Jae Sin shows us that with a pure heart and determination nothing is impossible. Well I could go on and on about each actors.

MY only disappointing with this but I still gave it a 10 anyway is that I feel that they rush the end because they realize that they did not have any additional episode so it was rush.

But don't let this little disappointment make you skip on this drama, because well I don't know it's just awesome.

I haven't written a review in a while so take what I say with a grain of salt. I truly believe Black Knight deserve one to serve as a buffer of sort to all the negatives comments in the comments sections.  
I have been watching dramas for over a decade now and I can fairly say that Black Knight is one of those Love it or Hate it drama. Personally I like it, it  wasn't spectacular enough to take me to the love level but it was warm enough to bring me to like.
So if you find yourself  looking for a drama were you know that there is 99% of chance that the plot and story progression will go nowhere, then you have found yourself at the right stop. Because that is exactly what you will get plotwise here :" NOWHWERE". But don't let the nowhereness of the plot deter you from 20 hours of free cheese and well place laughter if you know how to turn off your overthinking cap.
Let's  give props where there are due.
Go into this drama with zero expectations of wow moments and you will be the happiest person on earth. Go into this drama with a mind set that is ready to jump at every plot whole and expecting (a+b)=c moment and you are going to be the most miserable person on earth.

I came into this drama for Kim Rae Won and I was not disappointed, he showed that yes he is a veteran actor and he can work with whatever is thrown at him. And let's thanks this drama for giving female viewers out there a somewhat healthy male model,  Soo Hoo was kind, hard working and mature. He acted like a gentleman from the moment we met him and showed us that it is possible to want to attain childish dream while being an adult about it.  Something that we have to admit K-drama don't always show us.  So if you want to just chill and watched KRW do his thing then watch this.  

Jang Mi Hee another veteran actress also shined in the mastery of her craft. She portray reformer Baek Hee with class.  Making us laugh at her eccentricity at the right moment and cheering for her to attain the absolution she so wanted. Go in at least just to check in Beak Hee moments even if you have to skip through the drama.

Seo Ji Hye  truly surprised me with her portrayal of Sharon. I'm not going to be singing her acting prowess because to me she more of  a hit or miss actress. But  I have to say that she nailed Sharon essence.  If what we wanted from Sharon was a emotion spot holder than an actress with better control of her facial expressions and mastery of acting would have been better.  But for what the drama came to give us of Sharon SJH  was a good choice.  She has that entitled feel to her.   If you have to check this out well at least check some of Sharon clip, she was at least funny in her eccentricity. Yet also delivered the right amount at annoyance at the mastery of the lack of development her character went through ( which I personally  think was intentional.) It occurred to me that maybe the point that the writer was trying to make with Sharon lay in her lack of moral or personal growth.
 
Acting wise these three are the only one that stood out for me. While it was quite cute watching Shin Se Kyung and Kim Rae Won be cheesy and cute together. Shin Se Kyung once again failed to invest me in her character, she seemed to be a simple place holder around which everyone else gravitated in order to be positioned right.  
  Reading this I can see yourself asking what I'm trying to get at and what the point of these long review that doesn't really say much.  Well I what I truly want to say is, ignore the nagging people and the eternal discontent. Grab a bag of popcorn on a rainy and watch this, even as a place holder to cure that itch that you have for waiting for the other drama that you really wanna watch.  It would not be a wasted 20 hours.  It would just be  20 hours that you spent enjoying some nice cinematography, you will have some decent music and some visually attractive people to watch for about 20 hours.  Then you will move on with your life.

Don't come in with expectations and enjoy the laugh and MOST OF ALL: DON'T OVERTHINK THINGS.
