Absolutely, one of the best drama of year 2024!

"Listen carefully, Jeong Jian" - Jeong Jinman

What a ride! From start to finished, everything is full of suspense, edgy, brutality, beautifully done bloody scenes , well executed fight scenes, delivery of lines and spectacular acting.

Jian is kind of frustrating when she became an adult, compared to her younger self who's more sure of what she wanted to do with her life. I love their uncle/niece chemistry as it was not full of warmth/touchy moments or scenes, but you know that Uncle loves her in his own special way.

Fight scenes were perfectly executed, and you know they gave their 200% efforts in doing it. As what you can see with the end products, as well as if you saw the BTS videos, that they both injured their selves as they're doing their own stunts.

The story is written beautifully, and the scenes were all properly done and well-acted. I wanted season 2 and I am hoping for it as there's a lot of unfinished issues and I wanted more of Jeong Jinman and Jeong Jian scenes, as well as Unnie Minhye, brother and Master Pasin.

Overall, it is worth of time and effort watching it. Uncle Jinman is full of hotness, specially when he was still the captain of the mercenary group.

One of the best for me.

OMG!!!!! Definitely worth the wait watching this drama! This is one of my favourite novels from Mo Bao Fei Bao and the novel adaptation was perfectly done. They even enhanced it and gave more depth and details to each characters and scenes.

I love that this is worry free, no unnecessary dramas/conflicts nor misunderstandings. Just simply Dr. Mo waving his "green flag" and his pursuit of happiness with Gu Sheng.

Casting was perfectly done, with Tan Jian Ci and Zhou Ye as the lead CP. I love and enjoy listening to the OST as well as the mouth watering parade of food!

I love all the characters and their relationships. It's all about friendship, family, love and their passion with their dreams.

This is just fluffy, fluffy, cuddles, sweetness overload, and you'll definitely smile the entire time you watch them.

Try reading the novel, if you already watched this drama. Definitely a 100/10 for me.

Perfecly imperfect for me

I enjoyed the drama! The story with it's twist and turns were very generic ; but surprisingly, it perfectly blended. It was obvious that it has limited budget, but they did a very good job. Acting wise, with the support of the veteran actors for the main couple, delivered well. I haven't finished reading the Manhwa, but I noticed that they changed a lot of things, mainly to incorporate it all in a 12 episode drama. But, still it is a well-adapted drama. It was a worth it to watch the drama.

I will definitely miss LLH's sarcasm, superb martial arts skills and his to die for smirks

Hail Cheng Yi!!!! This is definitely one of the best Wuxia series I've ever watched in my entire journey as a Cdrama fan. Every element included in this series, to be made as complete and whole did their part amazingly and perfectly.

The story may be cliche with revenge, betrayal, good vs evil, but! they did it with a twist.

There's mystery, adventure, brotherhood, good camaraderie, perfectly executed fight scenes (which takes my breath away) and couldn't helped myself but to rewind it to watch that scene again, and a lot more. You'll cry, get frustrated, upset, laugh, be curious, be on edge on your seat and just simply be awed with Cheng Yi's acting on this series. I love how he portrayed LLH's character. I love the sprinkled jokes, his sarcastic jabs/remarks, his to die for smirks, and his growth as a person. From being a proud, kinda selfish but fiercely loyal person, and was oblivious on what's happening around him, him as an excellent person, a martial artist genius, to having experienced betrayal, his downfall and realisation as a mature person.

I love how Cheng Yi and Joseph Zeng interact on screen. It looks natural and convincing. How they bicker with each other but you'll know for sure that they're ready to save and protect one another if needed.


Let me say it again, the fights scenes here are all perfectly executed! Most especially LLH's fight scenes! OMG!!!! I simply love those scenes, they looked sooo convincing and natural! Kuddos to their hard work!

Also, I really love this drama because there's no unnecessary romance plot that sometimes, ruin a good series.

I hate all the villains, I wanted to skinned them alive, that's how good and convincing they are with their parts/roles. ???

My only complain was the subtitles were too fast for a scene. I for an expert as a subtitle reader did had a hard time reading them all. ??? I had to rewind some in order to understand some.

If you're still contemplating whether you have to watch this series, I can gladly say, go for it! Give it a chance and you'll never regret it. Just as I didn't regret buying the express package just to know what's gonna happen in the end.

Love the blood splatter

The casting was great! Actors did a very good job and the executions of the action scenes were spot on. I enjoyed the fight scenes, especially the blood splatter is very convincing. As I was watching the movie, I was just going with the movie, it's just me watching a movie, no connection at all with the characters. I feel like there's something lacking about the entire movie, though I couldn't identify what was it.

Also, there's a lot of things that weren't given enough attention, so I feel disconnected with the movie and the characters.

Let's die in the spring

"I think that there should be atleast one person on your side" - Landlord lady

What a satisfying revenge drama for me. Everyone who made other people's life, met their demise may it be figuratively or literally, which they definitely deserved.

Definitely worth the wait and I am happy that our Dong Eun finally realised that she's not alone. That there are people who loves her and cares for her.

Some may complain about Yeo Jung's case but I think it's "just" that they do his own revenge thing after they concluded Dong Eun's journey. Why? in order for them to move on and have their own version of peace, they should have a conclusion with their unfinished business.

We should remember that these two are badly damaged souls and their mental health is really not good, so some might say they're toxic to each other; but for me, they serves as an anchor for each other. They do balance one another and give themselves a purpose in life; or else, there's no reason for them to live, and would rather die.

I really hate Dong Eun's mother and how she uses their relationship to abuse her child. I love what the landlady said to Dong Eun, that even if families are determined by the heavens, sometimes heavens commits mistakes.

** Also, at first I was rooting for Ha Do Young and Moon Dong Eun, but then I realised it's not gonna happen. Why? Because of Ye Sol, who's greatly affected with all of this and like what Dong Eun told the child, she'll be forever sorry and will apologize to her for the rest of Ye Sol's life if she wanted to, as Dong Eun ruined her world. Ha Do Young maybe inlove or fascinated with Dong Eun but his love will never be enough to fill all the void that's lacking in Dong Eun's life. We all know he is a very good father to Ye Sol in spite of him being not the biological father of the child. So their life will be stressful and they'll be toxic for each other in the long run. So I am really happy that Dong Eun and Yeo Jung ended up together.

What a ride! Everyone got their justice and their own happy ending. Binge watch worthy!

Binge worthy

"Love isnt bad,  it's the people who are bad
When in love we are the purest in state" - Choi Soo Jin to Yeo Mi Ran

I was waiting for this drama since I saw the trailer. I love the pairing as I can relate to their age group. I love how Mi Ran tackles and interpret her self as a feminist. It's not too much and not lacking. Also I love how the series showed their perspective regarding with women having a lot of men to date with. It's shows how double standard our society is. When men do that, "they're just sowing the oats, and what to do? they're men, it's typical for them to engage eih several women" but if a woman did that, then they will be casts aside and be called names such as "promiscuous" or "wild women" when im fact, women also should have a choice and have a say with it as they're the one who's gonna spend the rest of their lives with a man. Remember you'll never know someone's true nature unless you learn to live with them in a house.

The series is matured, funny, romantic and quit realistic on my part. It's just saddening that 10 episodes are not enough as some parts were rush, maybe 12 or 14 episodes would be enough.

Anyway, I love the series and the casts! They did a very good job!

March 10, come faster please!

What a shame it was only part 1 that has been showed and we have to wait for several weeks to have a conclusion for Dong Eun's journey for revenge.

It was an intense, compelling, dark, frustrating, and beautifully written drama. For the first part that it has shown, it was really worth the Hype and SHK did it again. Her attack on this drama, is much different compared to her other roles and she really did a great job.

Kuddos for the entire casts, may it be the young versions of them or the present actors/actress, they gave their all for a stellar performance. They're too convincing as bullies and you really wanted to skin them alive.

I love her support system, and I do hope that Ms. Kang will have her "happy" ending as we all know she deserved it.

Patiently waiting for part 2, and oh! I'm rooting for Ha Do Young for Dong Eun but Joo Yeo Jung also deserves his happy ending.

Eye candy galore

I enjoyed watching it; great casting, with Daniel Henney (Jack) as an added character. The comedy timing was perfect and I find Yoona hilarious here.

I loved the fight scenes, they were perfectly executed for me, that's why it was believable.

Story was cliche with drugs, revenge, chemical bombs and political inclination; but heck, it was an entertaining movie for me.

Hyun Bin is a well versed actor, and here you see that he knows his craft well, as he is very convincing with his actions scenes, they looked well executed and real.

YHJ as his SoKor detective partner is also as always a very good actor, he played his role perfectly.

So, definitely worth watching it. Their trio team, was a perfect combination.

Not just a hype, but definitely worth it!

Surprisingly this drama is such a breath of fresh air! Amidst of all the dramas with topics such as politics, harem, inner and outside court tactics and a whole lot more, this one is waaay much different. I loved and enjoyed watching everyone's daily activities.

With their underhanded political manuevers, unnecessary deaths, intrigues, vicious killings and just simply taking advantage of people around them, the drama has the lack of it, in some way.

There's power struggle here, battle of being in favoured by the King but still, even the supposed to be villain is not that vicious and evil enough to just go ahead and kill everyone else.

They promote women empowerment, sisterhood, camaraderie and good relationship among everyone else. Also, the way they discuss about Post Partum Blues or Post Partum depression which happens to some or most women after giving birth is really great!

I love that there's a lot of character growth, some frustrating and annoying parts, but over all I just fell in love with everyone else.

I love that BJT is always or almost always smiling here and TWX is like a 1M watts bulb with all her super bright smile, that you can't help but get carried along as well. If you haven't watched it, then better start the first episode and you'll not regret it.

Though it might bother you with some part/s that shows domestic violence and suicide, so I'll warn you about that.

Do you think monsters are born or made?

"The world that created the monster, must take responsibility too" - Song Ha Young

I don't know why, but I aside from Mafias, the other thing I am fascinated with is and will always be are about Serial Killers and how they will be caught with their crimes. As what Ha Young always mentioned in the drama, "there's no such thing as a perfect crime".

This drama is such a gem, with the 12 episodes which is for me is not enough and I want a season 2 for more cases to be tackled by the team.

It shows that being a profiler is not an easy profession, it's not for the weak mind and heart, what you'll be facing are to things that too inhumane for our taste. How this drama showed that not all monsters are born to be that way, but rather they're end products of things done to a person. Like how a parent affect their child's life for their actions or decisions.

Kim Nam Gil is one of my favourite actors in SoKor dramaland, as he knows his craft well. He may be lowkey, but God! he delivers perfectly. Add Jin Seon Kyu and Kim Won Hae (who's one of my fave ahjussi) and other casts and boom! we have a great casting for the characters in the drama. Their acting is superb! What more with the actors who played the roles of serial killers! Jeez! they're too convincing and too real!

I think, the drama's trying to tell us that we always have a choice, whether we choose to be a monster or not is up to us, unless we're defected by birth which we would feel helpless to control it, then we should always choose to be a good person, inspite and despite of any circumstances that we face in our daily life. It may be easy to say, but life is always a struggle and unfair. It's just how we handle things that may or may not make a difference towards it.

Overall, it's worth to watch the drama, so if you haven't watched it, you should start it. But be prepared, as some things there are too disturbing and violent. The things that serial killers described their crimes are too much for a person if they're not used to these types of dramas.

Worthy of its ratings

I couldn't believe that I waited for several years before finally deciding to watch this series! I wasted a lot of time not knowing how amazing and beautiful it is. Story is written perfectly, it was complex, intriguing, full of smart people, will keep you on edge while watching. Full of bromance, you'll feel a lot of emotion while watching. Characters were portrayed perfectly by the actors/actress, fight scenes were executed well. Cinematography is great.

If you haven't watch it and you love intrigues, revenge, politics, wars, bromance/family/friendship drama, then you better watch this. It is all worth it, the 54 episodes were not enough for me. Will surely miss the entire casts.

If its fated, then they will be back in each other's arms again.

"That day, you gave me a reason to live, and taught me the path I need to follow. My dream is to make you happy" - Harumichi to Yae (March 11, 2001)


What a poignant, full of reminiscing, full of firsts, pure, bittersweet and sweet first love. The song "First Love" by Utada Hikaru has been a part of my younger days, even now I age, it still gives me that haunting, sweet and will make me cry for a moment feel.

The casts gave a stellar performance, with Takeru Satoh as a given fact and as a huge fan, I enjoyed watching him wearing uniforms. It really suits him. Anyway, back to the casts, they were wonderful, especially the younger version of Harumichi and Yae. They showed how it is to be young and to be in love, how to tackle issues in life and how to deal with it.

Story may sound cliché, as well there's a lot of holes in it, but still, it was done properly. Cinematography is great, the OST is super nice: with Utada Hikaru's and the songs that Tsuzuru wrote were also great.

I also love, how they come in pairs, I mean whenever a couple or Yae and Tsuzuru appears on screen, they wore clothes/dress of the same color, especially the color blue, which is nice to look at.

I felt a lot of emotions while watching the entire 9 episodes, but it was totally worth it. I hope Takeru Satoh and Hikari Mitsushima work again.

A Mothers' Love knows no boundaries

How to move on from this wonderfully written sageuk drama of 2022? I just cannot believe that it ended, I want more of them.

Great casting, spectacular performances, crispy and well written dialogues, OST is used perfectly on each scenes, face off/slap scenes (figuratively) and you'll feel a whole lot of emotions from the drama. There's character growth and development, and I loved it!

This drama shows different types of motherly love: there's a kind, warm, supporting, forgiving, accepting and protective love; a love that is ruled by greed and obsession that is poisonous to one's child.

I love how they tackle issues, especially related with the 4 grand prince, the other children as well as the King, I'm surprised, I enjoyed his character. As most of the dramas, the father (King) usually is a jerk who's obsessed with power and greed.

Kim Hye Soo is one of my favourite SoKor actress, she knows how to deliver emotions and lines. Her face says it all, even when she's just lifting her eyebrows, you know it wants to express something. She's such a powerful actress, you'll feel all the emotions/character she wanted to portray. I love her!!!

If you haven't watched it, you should start watching it now and surely you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

Though, the Queen Dowager had it easy which was kinda lacking as she is a nasty
character. What happened to her doesn't give justice to everything she did from the past.

Three's definitely a crowd in this series

OMG!!!!! I cannot believe I finished the entire season 1 as soon as I started watching it! I loved it!!!! I am a huge fan of the webtoon series and when I started reading it, I was having a wishful thinking that they would adapt it in a drama series and viola!!!! Here is our drama.

Season 1 gave the background story of Gray/Shi Eun and Stephen/Soo Ho's friendship and what happened way back there. The entire casts is superb! They really did a spectacular performance, with being a bully and a victim. I really abhor bullying, especially school violence as I don't get their reason in doing that? Self-fulfillment? Power? Validation? Why? If you're a victim yourself, why would you let others experience what your experiencing, instead of preventing it to happen to other people? You did bad things and then you justify what you did and blame it on other people, just to excuse your sorry self.

Really, Beom Seok/Bryce's character is really a sorry excuse for a human being, what a jerk, and definitely a coward person. I hate him!!!! I cannot wait for season 2 as Shi Eun will have a new set of friends/family in Eunjang High. Also, the fights there are superb! I want to watch if Shi Eun will use the "cola" can as a weapon. Anyway, I really enjoyed the series.
