After many delays, I managed to finish all of the movies. All I can say is - finally!

It's a continuation and the last movie of the Mischievous Kiss The Movie trilogy. I had to finish it, despite the fact that there are no English subtitles for this movie yet after such a long time. The fact that I can understand only basic Japanese didn't stop me from watching this. The story - timeless, cheesy but classic, something that I've been familiar with ever since the original anime. I get why the directors wanted to create 3 separate movies - the plot is just too wide and there are many iconic scenes to be shown on screen. However, each movie progressed for the worse. This movie, out of all the three, was the most draggy, exhausting one to watch. It lacked some impact. Something should've been done with a boom. I probably got really tired of the whole cast. The most annoying character was the male lead and I strongly believe that it's not the character, but the main actor. In addition, the chemistry between the couple was completely lost in this movie. Why did I give a higher rating though? Well, it's a brilliant and nostalgic story that I grew up with. And it will always be in my suggestions.

Overall, this wasn't a bad movie, but it could've been way better. If you've watched the first 2 movies, go ahead and finish the trilogy with this one. However, if you're quite new to the Itazura na Kiss franchise, I'd strongly suggest watching the anime and the drama adaptations instead of this!

Ever since I finished the drama School 2017, I really wanted to get into watching all of the earlier versions. I started with this one.

School series in particular have this specific way to delve deeply into the problems of South Korean students. Who Are You: School 2015 was based on bullying and common family problems. Also, this version offered a lot of mystery elements which I really enjoyed. Sometimes it felt like you were reading a crime novel!
The storyline was quite hard to follow, especially in the first episode, but the eventually everything started to fall into place. I get why a lot of people like to be harsh critics of School 2015 (probably the second lead syndrome that everyone has gone through). Yes yes, there were so beautiful moments portrayed by the skillful actors, whom I already recognize from the previous drama that they've starred in. Some characters in particular made me mad and sappy, happy and sentimental. My emotions were all over the place and I guess it's supposed to be the main objective of the drama.
The OST was touching and enjoyed as well. Can't help but replay all of the songs after watching it!

If you're into school themed dramas that deal with teen problems and first love, this is the drama for you! The storyline is gripping, the actors are superb and the music will definitely enchant you!
