To be honest, I intended to watch this drama, whether I liked it or not, because my favorite actor of the Korean Drama land - Park Seo Joon. And I kid you not, this drama was full of surprises and not what I expected at all.

From the trailer and the plot summary I was certain that this series was going to be full of roses and very smooth going. But it was not what I expected at all. Starting with the genre of this drama, I think it would've been a brilliant comedy on its own, without any romance elements. It was quite a rocky start for me to fall in love with the jokes and the romantic aspects in this drama, but as it progressed, it grew on me more and more.

And the most important thing that made this drama memorable for me were the characters. As I said in the beginning, I was anticipating to root and fangirl over Park Seo Joon in this drama. However, I was caught up in something known as the "second lead syndrome". Editor Kim - he's the man that stole this whole show! Man, his jokes are superb, and the "Jackson" joke is going to stick with me for the rest of my life and remind me of his cheerfulness and that awkward and goofy man. In my opinion, the female lead, Kim Hye Jin, was too psychotic and unrealistic, but nevertheless, she's brought a fresh type of character into the Korean Drama world. Also, the whole staff of "The Most" magazine made me fall in love with them and their little family at the office. The character side stories were very interesting and I would love to see more Korean Dramas with a similar family-work environment.

Briefly, it's been quite a rocky start for me and this drama. Notwithstanding, it gets better and better and the series continues as the characters bring out many unique aspects of their lives and stories. It's a brilliant comedy story that makes you believe in first love once again!

Although I'm a huge fan of medical dramas, this one I was not very fond of right from the start. I found it lacking in the supporting character development since each of them were different and unique. Also, the whole "romance" that was going on was quite cheesy.
I actually enjoyed the patients' stories more than the actual plot of the two main characters. Overall, not a drama that I'd re-watch, but quite enjoyable.

One of the first Japanese movies that I've seen. Definitely a great choice to watch just to see the amazing casting, with some of the best young Japanese actors like Mirei Kiritani and Kentaro Sakaguchi. If you loved the manga, you'll definitely enjoy this movie as well!

This was my first drama web series ever. It's definitely very funny and I love how the humor is specific, fun and different. I was bursting with laughter every episode. As for the whole romance genre, it was very slow but cute.
The casting was superb in my opinion. The actors were experienced and natural + the celebrity cameos very wonderful. I'm a big fan of Lee Shi Eon and his character was the best in this show!

Overall, it's a cute and funny web series that is short and very enjoyable :3

With so many similar dramas like this one it really fascinates me how much I've liked this one. It's your typical law, supernatural, romance drama with a hint of quirkiness. I guess anybody who likes series of the same genres will enjoy this one.

First of all, the story isn't that all unique, but I definitely enjoyed how the plot was nice, clear and straightforward from the first episodes. Episode 1-2-3 and *poof* - you're hooked. The series looses it's fast pace when everything seems clear, however, the pace is quickly swept up again after an episode or two. Also, it's so satisfying when the little plot holes in the drama start to fill up little by little as the show progresses. As I always like to focus on romance and the relationships between characters in every Korean drama, the love story between the main characters was like a breeze of fresh air. Jung Chae Chan's and Nam Hong Ju's affection for each other and how natural it was made the drama so enjoyable to watch. Speaking about enjoyable, I'll talk about my new oppa. Oh yeah, it's Jung Hae In. I fell in love with Han Woo Tak's character right away. He is my new perfection of what any man in Kdrama world should be. Also, he's very lovable. Beware!

Hence, the multi-talented actors made this show worth watching. The star-studded cast put a smile on my face. However, I get that many people are fed up with Lee Jong Suk's acting - he tends to play the same type of character most of the time, but he has done a spectacular job in this once again. Not to mention that him and Suzy even recorded songs for the OST of the drama. An emotional and moving soundtrack is one of the most important elements of a successful drama. Personally, I'm very impressed with all of the songs, hence, now I have many songs to rewind over and over again while getting ready in the morning!

So, as I've finished the drama 30 minutes ago, I can proudly say that I'll miss it. I remember not expecting much from the synopsis and the trailer, but now I'm very happy with my decision. If you love an intense, romance filled and fresh crime-solving dramas, you'll probably enjoy this one as much as I did!

What a unique drama experience this was! And this joy ended so fast!

Every single day when I went to check out some news on MDL, Laughter in Waikiki kept on popping up on the main page as "trending" and "highly-rated". To be honest, I was already watching like 3 other ongoing dramas at that moment, so squeezing in this one seemed irrational. But I'm so glad I jumped on this train! Well, fans did promised me seas of laughter, but the humor wasn't my style. Yes, I did burst into tears a couple of times, but that's about it. What really stood out to me was the format of this series. It really reminded me of something that they'd make in Hollywood, a potential sitcom as some people mentioned before. But this drama was WAAAY better than something that they'd produce in the US. I loved how the creators managed to combine various genres together. The storyline was excellent, the character development was wonderfully though-out. Personally, I loved each and every character, but by far my favorite one was definitely our little angel Sol. She's just the most adorable baby ever! In addition, the remaining cast too - spectacular!

So briefly, this was a really enjoyable binge watch for me. Watch it to get your daily dose of vitamin c! I, most certainly, request a season 2 (perhaps when Sol is a teenager?)!

I finally finished watching this, phew...

I'm guessing that I'm only in the  minority here, in the circle of people that found this drama only decent. The only adjectives that I can think of at the moment to describe this drama are draggy and boring. Sure, the beginning was really intense and I thought that I seriously got hooked. The plot line was unique and really interesting to follow, however, I strongly believe that the drama was just too long. I kind of lost it somewhere in the middle. The same cases and problems got stretched out into a couple of episodes, which I found completely unnecessary actually. Seeing the star-studded cast working together was kind of cool but I do think that the main couple lacked chemistry. In my opinion, In Ha's character didn't hit my image of Park Shin Hye one bit. On the other hand, I really enjoyed the performance of the various side characters, who made the drama really diverse. But that's kind of it. I can't find any more reasons why I liked the drama. Towards the end of watching the series, I really wanted to end it and to start watching something better. So, would I rewatch it? Nahhh...

Lastly, I'm going to mention that I went in to watch this just because it gained so much positivity and great reviews so probably my expectations were unrealistic for this. It's a different story that you might or might not enjoy, depending on your actor and genre preferences.

Haru ga Kita started off great. The plot line seemed somewhat fresh, exciting and very promising. I could've dropped this series after 3 episodes because I started to dislike it, however, I though that since Kai is so damn gorgeous, I just needed to finish those last episodes. Also, this drama was a lovely Japanese-Korean collaboration, which I seriously loved! Kai speaking Japanese? Very attractive. The chemistry between the main couple? Not so much. The female lead drove me absolutely nuts in a bad way. I hate when the main female character is weak and doesn't leave a strong impression. What I loved though was that the side characters were illustrated beautifully, each with their own unique story. Music didn't play a huge part in this series, so I don't have much to say about it. Overall, this review is short and simple just because the drama was, how to call it, kind of "meh". If you want to take a break from watching a long series, then maybe this will be the refreshment drama for you, since it's only 5 episodes. If you're here for Kai, definitely watch it because HANDSOME ALERT. But anyway, with so little time, look for a more promising short drama out there.

To be completely honest, were there ever any live remakes that were better than the actual original manga or anime? I guess not, and it's no exception with this one.

The story of Daytime Shooting Star is lovely. For all of you who've read the manga I guess you'll agree that the plot is simple, but very well developed and put out. But the Japanese have this "thing" to completely destroy the amazing manga vibe when they transfer it to the big screens. The whole movie seemed so fake to me. Don't misunderstand me, I love these "corny" and "cheese" Japanese manga adaptations with the whole awkward kissing, starting weird relationships and so on. But the most awkward of it all was the acting in this movie. Is it just me or do we all find the main actress of this movie very strange and unprofessional? I mean, if you read the manga, you would've formed a completely different character of Suzume in your head. To me, the Suzume from the manga is a bit more daring, confident and a whole lot prettier. Sorry if I seem rude or bitchy, but honestly, I couldn't let this slip by without commenting on it. To add, the actor for the role of Mamura is extremely handsome, yet he couldn't fulfill my expectations for acting and being a true Mamura from the manga. Sighh...

I feel as though I'm only giving this movie a higher score is that I've enjoyed the manga so very much. My only wish is that the Japanese would start making manga adaptations with focusing on how to make the characters look and feel like they just walked out of the manga.

If you're a shojo anime junkie/manga reader/corny romance lover, I guess you'll like this film.

After reading the reviews and seeing this drama literally everywhere, I decided to give it a go. To be honest, I had pretty low expectations from the first few episodes, but the series got better and better.
The main lead chemistry was unbelievable, but I still think that the 2nd lead love story was more interesting and I was rooting for them every episode. Also, the bromance! My god, they are adorable!
Can't get enough of every character on this show, especially the doctors and how unique every one of them are. Would love to see this series on television everywhere in the world because it definitely deserves all of the praise that it gets!

This was an amazing series that I decided to binge watch for 2 days. With every episode ending the preview sucked me in to watch the next one.
But wow, the plot of this drama is like nothing I've seen before. It really reminds me of Batman for some reason. I've always wanted to live in a comic book world so it kind of made me experience that.

The main lead chemistry is unbelievable so if you love romantic dramas this one doesn't delay the kiss scenes at all and cuts right to what the fans want :D The animation + the side characters were like a treat. Definitely re-watching this for the cute and romantic atmosphere!

Yet another adaptation of the timeless story of "It Started with a Kiss". This manga has always had a special place in my heart. I love that the Asian movie industry are recreating the same story for us, die hard fans, to discover again and again. This adaptation is not the best that I've see, really. I did love the cinematography and the high resolution, but the acting felt stiff and boring. They did follow the original storyline, but added some surprising changes, which I really like. There's nothing much to say really as this story has been discussed so many times. It's a light movie about school romance to brighten up your evening and a must-watch for all of the fans.

So many feelings after watching this! I can't believe that I missed out on such a great drama for so long. Hands down the best historical drama that I've watched: magical, tragic, inspiring and so much more than a TV series. It combines a magnificent story, history, visuals and a captivating soundtrack!

I've seen that people have been rewatching this drama multiple times, and that's what I'll do in a couple of months as well. But as for my first time watching this, I really enjoyed it. And I can't find a single flaw in it. I haven't watched the parent story to this, but Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo was an amazing remake, I'll tell you that. It made me waver between characters, I still have a hard time letting my heart decide who should end up with who. Nevertheless, this great experience couldn't have been so great if it wasn't for the actors themselves. The star-studded cast was amazing, especially all of the princes. I'd read some criticizing comments about IU's performance, however, as her first major role, I think she did spectacular and even more experienced towards the end. I haven't looked how the plot coheres to actual Korean history, but I got so excited and interested, that I've picked up a book to read on it. To add, the OST increased the satisfaction of watching this about 50%. All of the songs were spot on with the lyrics, the artist choice is incredible, but I was a tad bit sad that IU didn't have a single in her own drama.

Overall, if you're not watching this, you're missing out big time. This drama is one of the best historical Korean series in my opinion, it sucks you in and let's you go all sad and weeping at the end, but it's so worth the bragging!
