It took me quite a while to finally finish this. It just seemed that 38 episodes were way too much to complete this story. Yet again, even after all of the filler episodes right at the end of the show, the ending left many unanswered questions. Not going to lie, I decided to watch this for Junho, since I find him to be very talented and universal in every role. However, this just didn't fit him somehow. And the chemistry between him and the lead actress was weird and artificial. Second lead syndrome hit me the hardest while watching this, and I realized how the second lead male was just completely ignored during the last episodes. Now, to focus on the positive, personally, I believe that the side characters made this drama interesting and bearable to finish. In addition, I'd only rewatch this for the food porn and those beautiful shots of Asian dishes that were mesmerizing. Other than that, this drama had potential, but turned out to be too draggy and went downhill fast. If you're into friendship, bromance dramas with a dash pf romance here and there, go for it! But you will get a bit hungry!

This was actually the first longer drama that I've decided to watch. The trailer for this made it seem like it's going to be a goofy romcom, which I absolutely adore. However, this show turned out to be like one of those soap operas with many unnecessary dramatic scenes. To put it shortly, this drama was about a super dysfunctional rich family + other character side stories, which looked more appealing than the main storyline to be honest. The focus on the main couple was very minimal, and that was actually the romance that I was looking forward to the most. Honestly, one of the other reasons why I wanted to start watching this was mainly because of the lead couple and the actors that played their roles. They were spectacular in other dramas, but I just couldn't feel the chemistry between them in this drama. Overall, this, in my opinion, was a bit too stretched out for a family drama, but if you enjoy shows with elements like backstabbing, lying and being dramatic 24/7, I'd recommend this. Heck, even for a person like me, who doesn't normally go for stuff like this, it was quite enjoyable.

It was a great Friday movie pick! And I'll say it - even better than some of the Hollywood movies about werewolves and the supernatural. Of course, there were no special-effects or anything like that because the story is the main focus. Indeed, it gets very shocking, cute and most importantly emotional as the story progresses. Personally, I shed only a couple of tears and, like most people, wasn't satisfied with the ending. I was really moved by Song Joong Ki's performance as he stayed quiet almost during the whole movie. The relationship between the main characters was very fitting as the actors were chosen wisely. I loved the slow but strong character development as well. However, it's not a perfect 10 from me because I'm not too keen on these werewolf or vampire movies in general. But nevertheless, if you're a fan of these uncommon love stories between a girl and a beast, definitely give this a go. This movie has a different feel from other films with a similar vibe, so it's definitely worth watching!

So this drama finally ended.

The Great Seducer has always been in my list of dramas that I must watch. Mainly because I'm a big fan of Joy from Red Velvet and I love her acting. Some people did argue and say that she is an amateur actress so right from the start when this show started airing, I was a bit put off by all of the negative comments. First and foremost, I don't get why so many people rate this series as low as 3 or 4 because there are clearly wayyyy more poorly produced dramas in this world. I'm guessing many wanted to see something familiar with the original French story. It's a shame that I haven't read the mother story of The Great Seducer as a piece of literature so I can hardly compare the Korean TV version with the book. Personally, I was expecting this drama to be intriguing, dark, sexy and overall too melodramatic. This series seemed to have smalls chunks of almost every genre, but comparing the first and the last episodes side by side you could even make a logical assumption that the director became a completely different person. I wanted a heart-wrenching story about something inhumane and this drama did not even come close to exceeding my expectations. The characters were very stereotypical, I even loved the side characters more. However, I did enjoy Joy's strong female character and her development. On a more positive note, the music selection was spot on for this drama with the classical music. The cinematography and the music are what made me stay and finish it.

I could see how this drama could've been so much better, but it's not completely unwatchable as many other people claim. Don't worry and go watch it - you might even enjoy it more than you think.

This was a very promising short series based on the reviews. I decided to watch it mainly because it's only 4 episodes, it's about school life and romance. But I was quite disappointed to be honest. In other words, this drama special was a bit too bland for my liking. I was missing something that could be like a big intrigue in the drama, like a thing to make a huge impact on me to watch the drama without getting distracted. Despite all of this, I did enjoy the fresh story about young love and nostalgic school life. The cinematography and the colors were really poetic and beautiful to look at. But my biggest concern still remains the actors for this drama. I wasn't a big fan of their acting since the was no strong chemistry between the male and female leads, the supporting characters were lacking charisma as well. Nevertheless, if you love school oriented short drama series, this one is quite unique and refreshing.

This was a spectacular drama! Probably one of the best Korean drama series of 2017!

Even from the first glance at the storyline, I was already in love with the concept of a time traveling romance between doctors. Two stories in two completely different eras, and two doctors who are both connected by destiny and their duty to save people's lives. It really is a series that can actually heal your soul and make you appreciate the work that doctors have to put up with every single day. So the story never got boring or annoying and the plot brought something unique and was a rest stop after watching so many cliche romance dramas. The actors of Live Up To Your Name - talented, outstanding and shining. The main couple, in my opinion, had one of the best chemistries and stories in the Kdrama world. The male and female lead are quite mature both as actors and as the characters they've played: conveying various and very strong emotions in every scene, they've really perfected their roles in this drama. As I've seen before, the OST stole the hearts of many who've watched this show. And me as well - the songs were very catchy, emotional and they're still ringing in my ears.

Can't believe that it's already over, I'll need to rewatch this sometime soon! There were just so many good feels after watching this drama. (Also, that ending with Man Gae, that girl needs a whole separate drama too!)

This is the episode to watch before the actual TV drama Introverted Boss. This 30 minute episode didn't disclose many things. Is that a good thing? Honestly, I thought that they would at least do interviews with some of the cast members. But this was so random and all over the place. It wouldn't make a difference if you watch it or not, since the main focus of this is to talk about the actors' previous work, their roles and characters. Personally, I'd suggest just heading straight for the actual drama.

This was a really fun recap and behind the scenes episode to watch. It was aired before the actual show, however, I suggest watching it right after you finish the actual drama. This 1 hour long episode let's you in on the set, different filming locations, which were the most fascinating part for me. Also, you get to hear what every actor was like during and before the shoot, see their relationships from up close. Generally, this is a very fun and entertaining episode that you'll like if you loved the drama itself!

Time traveling? A story happening in Japan? I've heard of this somewhere before...

Actually, this story reminded me of that time I watch The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and the Endless 8 episode cycle. Again, time traveling is nothing new or exciting to me. I really liked the fact that the directors decided not to loop the same scenes and show the same footage over and over again. Just like an anime, this was a beautiful summer romance story based in Japan at its most intriguing time - summer. However, the romance and the feelings between the main characters seemed very odd to me. I've been meaning to watch this movie for quite a long time since Kentaro Sakaguchi is in this, but I didn't enjoy his performance here. And the leads didn't have that strong of a chemistry. Since this is mainly a movie based on a musical story, I quite enjoyed the soundtrack and the live performances. Frankly, I don't know what to add. Probably that the story is lacking something more, a deeper meaning perhaps.

Anyway, it's a good movie. GOOD as in just regular, nothing too meaningful or unforgettable.

This wasn't like something that I excepted - in a bit of a disappointing way! You lied to me, I read the reviews and they told me that it was going to be a short, but fun ride with lots of cutesy and fluffy scenes! It wasn't that at all!
I had a really hard time watching this, it seemed as though my attention span shrunk to the size of a pea and I would get distracted so easily while watching it. First of all, the plot isn't all of that unique or though-provoking and usually, overdone stories don't bother me too too much. But this drama was completely uninteresting. Web-style or short dramas tend to have many scenes that are appealing to viewers right at the first episodes, but this drama didn't have almost any heart-warming scenes that would make me squeak. Second, the characters didn't feel relatable or, in fact, I could't call them "real people" at all. I only rated this drama quite highly because of the main character chemistry. They were both very adorable. Oh, and that dog too! 
Maybe my expectations for short dramas are totally so high up there because of this one web-drama that I've watched recently, but this one isn't worth watching actually. You won't find many romantic or cutesy scenes in this one!

Good Morning Call, well, the first season was the one which I really enjoyed. Even though I'm not too keen on Japanese dramas, but I was really anticipating on watching this. I was frustrated when I found out that it came out only on Netflix Japan. And now, after a long road and months of waiting, I finally binge-watched it when it showed up on my Netflix account.
Right of the bat, it's definitely not one of my must-see dramas or something that was really enjoyable. I kind of felt obligated to finish it because I've admired the first season a lot. The biggest problem might be that the plot is just too similar to Itazura na Kiss, literally. There are so many non-coincidental similarities in both of the second seasons of these two dramas. And I'm such a huge fan of the Mischievous Kiss franchise, I felt betrayed that Good Morning Call was a rip-off of the original series. I do see some positive things in this series though. For example, the main male lead Uehara had a better attitude in this season, it made me enjoy his character a bit more. Well, Yoshikawa's character was kind of unbelievable, seemed unreal to me. To add, I though the cinematography had improved a lot in this season too! You could see that the budget was higher to draw more people in. 
But overall, with many negative and small positive things, I still rated this an 7* because it was fun and the story seems timeless. I only recommend watching season 1 if you haven't seen this series yet. Season 2 was a waste of precious time in my opinion.

To start off, I want to pay my respects to the trailer and the first episodes of this show which got me really hooked right from the beginning. Never before have I been so excited to watch what seemed like a super custom made drama just for me. I like my romance stories like that: the leads fall in love from first sight, their chemistry is off the charts, they are both gorgeous and the music fits in with the mood. To add, the beautiful cinematography and all of the things mentioned came into one big bubble of joy which made my Monday and Tuesday nights so enjoyable. Everything would seem great and I'd finish this review with a strong 10 if it wasn't for the unnecessary melodramatic twists and the extended episodes. I really planned to put this drama in my "Top 10" list, but it just wasn't possible because of how draggy the directors decided to make this masterpiece. Seriously, it felt like I was watching Naruto with all of those filler episodes which contained no development whatsoever. Still, somehow I managed to pull myself together and finish the last episodes. And to be honest, the last episodes were really refreshing and nice. Not to mention the stunning male lead and his character. These type of calm, confident and feminine male characters aren't very common in the drama world, so this made this drama quite unique.

Overall,  I'm definitely recommending this to people who enjoy professionally filmed dramas with a fast-slow paced type of plot. Yes, some parts are really boring and the story gets frustrating, but the end is worth savoring every minute of this drama!

As soon as I saw that this movie was coming out, I was really jumping from excitement. Seeing my favorite childhood anime turn into a live-action movie is a huge deal for me. And of course I had many expectation for the movie because the trailer looked so nice. But right from the very start when I sat down to watch this, all of my childhood dreams were shattered by the harsh reality. In my opinion, the biggest problem was not the plot ( the whole story was majorly changed from the original one in the anime or manga), but the actors and some of the scenes. It really felt like I was watching a cheap low-bugdet film, where they used inexperienced actors, despite the beautiful landscapes and backgrounds in the movie. However, some scenes felt really nostalgic and I was awed by the warming musical score. Overall, this movie adaptation did not exceed or nearly come close to my expectations. Nevertheless, I'd watch this movie again every once in a while. So if you're a fan of the original Peach Girl series, watch this and let me know if it was close to what you expected and if you enjoyed it.

I watched it during a 10 hour flight on a plane. As I'm mostly into Korean and Japanese dramas and movies, this was my first Taiwanese movie actually. Reading the plot, it got me really hooked up and excited from the beginning. It's your typical coming-of-age  happy-go-lucky movie, where you can predict whom is going to end up with whom, how the story is going to unravel itself. Who doesn't love a good school romance about first love, bullies, rivals and the harsh education system? I've watched dramas and movies with the same theme over and over again, but this movie was definitely something special and will surely become one of my classic favorite Asian movies.
Not giving away the setting of the story too much, one of my favorite things was that the actual storyline is set somewhere in the 80s/90s, so the actual vibe felt very real. I think I enjoyed the chemistry and the growing relationship of the 2 main characters. The romance was super natural and made me chuckle at least 10 times during the whole film. Also, the actors were gorgeous to say the least.
Without much rambling, everything about this movie is splendid and enjoyable. If you are a sucker for lighthearted love stories, you'll definitely want to watched this movie. It's worth watching and I know that I'll be rewatching ir some time soon. Oh, you'll thank me later for this recommendation! <3

This is the type of drama that I would recommend solemnly for the cast. I mean, 7 of some of the hottest hunks of the Korean drama industry, yes please! So if you like eye candy, then go for it! However, the story itself is very dull and not exciting at all, the female lead's acting skills were a bit too sloppy in my opinion. I get why the creators made this drama to advertise, because it really draws attention to some of the products and brands. For my liking, the drama was too transparent and lifeless. Would not re-watch it again!
