This drama started out great! Everything was adorable and cute. I liked how they explored relationships with the story lines and everything wasn't so black and white with the characters.

But too bad you can't rate a drama off it's beginning even if it's a special.

The ending was not what I expected. After I stared at my computer screen dumbfounded for several moments I realized that this would be the ending for the this drama. I almost thought that they might have added another episode and started to look around but I then realized that the ending I saw was the closing of the drama.

It completely ruined it for me because it was too rushed. So rushed that it's hard to make sense of what's happening. The writers obviously didn't have enough time to make a good ending but I think they could have done better than that.

Besides that I think that the cast did a great job. BoA did great too. I believe this is her first time starring in something and she's a singer so I was kind of worried that she wouldn't be good but I think she did a really great job. Choi Daniel was of course excellent as well.

The story line is good. I liked the overall idea and take they had on relationships. It's a extremely funny and sweet. I found myself laughing the whole way through and smiling so hard because of the adorable moments.

Since it's so short and the ending ruined everything for me I probably won't rewatch it but overall I still feel that if you really enjoy it you will probably watch it again.

Overall, the drama is hilarious and is something cute to watch when you have time on your hands. It had a lot of funny moments and really cute adorable moments too. You can also take some tips if you want relationship advice. I still think this drama is quite enjoyable and if the last five minutes wasn't so bad I would have gave it an 8.

I absolutely loved Let's Eat! Such a simple drama made me smile and laugh every week. It also made me extremely hungry every week too.

The plot is very simple but I still loved every minute of it. At first when I heard about this drama I wasn't so sure if I wanted to watch it because the plot seemed like it was only about food. I'm so glad that I gave this drama a try. The food is important so please be ready to have some type of snack with you while your watching because I guarantee you that you will be hungry. But this drama was more than food. You have a murder case as well too. You also have some romance on the side and I loved the friendships too. I just really think the writers did a great job with something so simple and making it a great drama.

The cast also made this drama too. I actually think the cast was one of the greatest things about this drama. The cast had great chemistry with each other as well too. I also loved all the characters. Soo Kyung was so fun to watch with her love of food, Jin Yi was adorable and such a sweet girl, Dae Young was a fun guy to watch and I loved his long rants about food, Attorney Kim was hilarious, and the rest of the cast was hilarious as well too. I never disliked anyone. I liked how well rounded all the characters were and how they all worked together.

This drama is very rewatchable. I just finished it and I already feel like starting it all over again. I think this will be the fun drama I will watch time and time again.

Overall, I think this drama was great. I don't know why but I loved it very much. It's so simple but amazing at the same time. You'll love the characters and have a good time laughing too. I laughed a least every episode. Once I watched the last episode I was left with a satisfying feeling.

If you want to watch something that will keep you on your toes, make you laugh, feel happy, and also make you extremely hungry then watch Let's Eat.

Warning! Please have a meal or a snack every time your watching this drama. The food scenes will make you hungry. I repeat the food will make you extremely hungry!

When I first started watching High School Love On, which feels like a million years ago because that's how long it took for it to air, I thought it was a cute light hearted drama. There wasn't much plot wise but that didn't matter because Woohyun, Seul Bi, and Sungyeol were enough to carry the drama with their cute moments. But of course like most dramas they start off good and then the writers forget that the middle of a drama is just as important as the beginning and end.

I call this drama the king of circles to my friends. Why? Because this drama goes in circles over and over and over again. The problem is that this drama should have never been over 10 episodes. The writers stretched this plot so thin that most episodes after episode 9 is the characters talking about the same thing without the plot actually moving forward. It stayed inside of a repetitive state that almost became unbearable to watch. The only thing that kept me watching was Woohyun and Seul Bi who were the only light in this drama. Also the drama has some of the dumbest plot devices I've ever seen.

As for the cast, I think they did an okay job. As most of you know this drama stars the young wonderful actress, Kim Sae Ron, and the two hot Infinite band members as her leading boys, Woohyun and Sungyeol. Kim Sae Ron is the strongest actor in this drama. While I do think Woohyun and Sungyeol do need to work on their acting a bit it wasn't that bad. I think Woohyun was the luckier one in the character choice because his charisma shined through. Sungyeol's character is one of the oddest characters I've ever watched. The writer's made a complete 180 with his character around the halfway mark and decided to make him the villain. Too bad they forget to give him real character motivation to make him a villain. It made Sungyeol's character hard to connect with and at one point I could say I really hated his character. There is a difference between teen angst and just being an asshole. I actually felt bad for Sunyeol (the actor) that he got a character like this. As much as I started to dislike Sungyeol's character the worst character to me was Angel Sunbae. He is a character with no purpose and almost seems to be used as a tool after a while. He would be gone for 3 episodes and then pop back up just to cause drama. He had no other purpose other than being an asshole. This also lead me to questioning the whole angel society because somebody should be regulating these angels.

The writers failed to give the rest of their characters any depth too. They had so many students there and it's a shame that they didn't use them to their advantage. Some of the students had cute romances but I felt like they could have built on these characters a lot more. By the way, the adults in this drama act like children. I have never seen adults act so irresponsible in my life before. They were even more childish then the students were.

The strongest part about this drama is the music. I usually don't pay attention to OSTs but this one is very good. It was the best thing about this drama to be honest.

As for rewatch value, I give it a 2. I would never go back to watch this drama but if I did it would only be to see the beginning of the show.

I would only recommend this drama to people who are fans of Infinite or tell them to watch the first nine episodes for Seul Bi, Woohyun, and Sungyeol (when they actually had common sense) and then skip to episode 18.This drama to me, story and character wise, wasn't good. Even the cute moments between Seul Bi and Woohyun weren't enough to make me stop disliking it. The writing was just too repetitive and the characters refused to grow at one point.

I loved this drama from the very beginning til the end. When I first heard about this drama I really wasn't all that excited. I just wanted to watch it because Sung Joon was the lead and I loved him in Lie To Me and White Christmas. This drama amazed from the episode one to episode sixteen. A drama that looked so simple made me feel so many emotions.

The best thing about this drama are the characters. The cast makes this drama. Now everybody did not have the best acting skills but this did not matter to me. The drama's story and the chemistry between the cast was still great. The boys are great. You end up bonding with them. The chemistry with the boys is perfect to me. I loved watching them together on screen. I usually root for romance but the bromance was adorable and raw. These boys had my heart from the very beginning. I just loved those moments between them. I love Su Ah's character and I have to say I was quite surprised by her. I was excepting her to be weak but she proved me wrong.

The next best thing about this drama is the story line. I was excepting a typical drama about music. A group of hot boys make it big and debut. I was so wrong. This drama is more than just music. This drama is about friendship and coming of age. As I stated before the bromance is what makes this drama. Their friendship had me from the first episode. I like how SUFBB did not just focus on their music like I thought it would. I wanted to know about characters like Ji Hyuk and Hyun Soo. I wanted to know what their life is like and how all of them can really be able to remain friends. Friendship is they key word for this drama.

The music is the best. When I first heard Jaywalking I could not stop listening to it. Their music is perfect to me. Ji Hyuk's voice makes me want to smile. I love Eye Candy and wish they were actually a band.

The ending was a beast. I have watched some great dramas before. They all started off perfect in the beginning but in those last two or three episodes the writers fall off. They never know how to wrap it up quite right or they leave many questions unanswered. I thought the same would happen with this drama but they did well. Not even quite well they did GREAT. They wrapped everything up in a real raw realistic way.

Overall, I fell in love with this drama from the very first episode. The story and the cast reels you into the drama and you can't help but put your heart into it. You can't help but get close to the characters. My emotions were all over the place watching this. I love watching the boys be free and having fun. I wanted to have fun with them. The whole vibe they gave off made me love them and want to listen to them. I felt like a little fan girl for Eye Candy.

I'll finish this review by saying SHUT UP!!! and WATCH!

At first I wasn't sure about this drama. I'm not a fan of melodramas and reading the plot itself didn't really make me want to watch it either. But I took a chance with this drama and I feel no regrets. Secret is AMAZING! It has an amazing story, cast, drama, and music. The perfect combination for a great drama. It's quite addictive and I found myself going crazy waiting each week for two more episodes. Every week the episodes continued to get better and better.

Secret is not your typical drama. It's very dark sometimes and these characters are dark as well too. None of these characters are perfect and have battles to face with some of the decisions they decide to make. So if your expecting a drama with a whole bunch of cutsy mushy romance then this might not be for you. Not saying there isn't any romance at all. The main couple has a great chemistry that will make you swoon.

I also loved the questions that this drama posed. Is it okay to sacrifice yourself for the one you love? Is love more important than family? How far should you go for love? Should you sacrifice your own happiness for someone else? And by the end of the drama I think each of these questions were answered very well. Which makes me love the drama ten times more.

The cast is amazing. I remember seeing Ji Sung on Protect The Boss as the goofy and immature rich son but to see him portray Min Hyuk was amazing. Ji Sung is great and now has made his way into my top actors list. I think he brought this character to life and had an amazing chemistry with Hwang Jung Eum. I didn't know what to expect from her thinking about the role she played in Full House Take 2 but she's really a great actress and knows exactly how to pull emotions from her viewers. They weren't the only great ones in the drama either. Bae Soo Bin and Lee Da Hee were too. Bae Soo Bin takes on the role as Ahn Do Hoon who has spiraled out of control and really becomes the definition of someone who isn't human anymore. He really does a great job! I can't wait to see more from each of these people.

The cast is amazing but I think one of the greatest things about this show is the development of each character. They might have not become a better person but each character developed into someone different from who they are. Each character changed and it was amazing to watch.

No, this drama isn't perfect. I do think the last episode was a tad bit rushed but this drama was so good that I thought it very much deserved a 10. But taking my personal satisfaction aside I gave it a 9 on here because I wanted to be honest. But taking some of those little problems away it's still very much a great drama.

I never pay much attention to OSTs but this one is really good and I ended up downloading the music as well. It always went perfect with every scene and found myself singing along.

This drama took me on a roller coaster ride and I loved every minute of it. It's very addictive and the perfect drama to marathon. As you you can see I said amazing a least five times so it must be amazing. So if you're looking for something like this then this is the perfect drama for you.

I remember the first time I attempted to watch this drama and I couldn't make it pass the first scene. I don't know what was wrong with me but I'm so glad that I gave this drama a chance again. This drama is one of my favorites and in my top five.

It's so different from most dramas that I watched. I feel like most Korean dramas keep it very innocent when it comes to relationships but Que Sera, Sera pushed all the limits when it came to these relationships. The drama is so dramatic in a great way too. It had my emotions all over the place. I wanted to cry, smile, and even pull my hair out in frustration at the situations and characters sometimes but when it ended I couldn't help but feel completely satisfied with the outcome.

The characters are great and very real. I think the cast is great as well too. There is a great chemistry between the male and female leads. Kang Tae Joo is an complete A-hole. We get this male lead character in most dramas but not to this extent. Kang Tae Joo is the boy that you would never want your daughter to meet at all. He's really the definition of a playboy and I love that Que Sera, Sera showed what a real playboy is like. To me Kang Tae Joo is one of the most interesting characters to watch in this show and I loved to watch his character development and growth. I think Eric did an excellent job portraying this character.

I've re-watched this drama plenty of times and it never gets old to me. I still feel all the emotions that I felt before.

I was so scared for the ending but everything overall ended up good. I think ending was actually perfect for a drama like this. I will say this if you're the type of person who's just looking for a regular romance with the piggyback rides and tiny pecks than this isn't the drama for you. But if you're looking for something exciting and an intense romance (when I say intense I mean INTENSE) then this is the drama for you in ever way.

I watched this drama because my favorite actor Gong Yoo stars in it and I must say that Biscuit Teacher and Star Candy did not disappoint. I LOVED this drama.

This drama made me become a fan of Gong Hyo Jin and it also proved to me how much of great actor Gong Yoo is. Also, I really liked the idea of this drama. This is what made me want to watch it. I like the whole "I'm a teacher and I'm going to change these kids life" story they used. And I liked the dynamic of the older woman younger male relationship (I don't know why but they tend to be my favorites like Dal Ja's Spring and Queen of Reversals. I must be a cougar at heart. Lol)

I loved the relationship that Gong Hyo Jin's character Na Bo Ri grew with her students. I think it was one of the best things about the drama. This drama is not just about her babysitting Park Tae In. This drama focuses on the other students as well and you get a new story each episode. This was something that I looked forward too the most. Expect to laugh and cry while watching this.

You have a great story and great cast with this drama and you'll truly enjoy it. I have re-watched this drama a couple of times and I really think the re-watch value is good. Biscuit Teacher and Star Candy isn't one of those overly emotional dramas where you feel like it was too much to watch again. BTSC is really funny majority of times.

Also I want to mention that Gong Yoo once again does a great job portraying his feelings. It's another reason why I loved him so much in Coffee Prince. His feelings showed throughout this whole drama and I truly felt like I saw him fall in love with Na Bo Ri. So if you like to see a drama where the guy falls helplessly in love with this girl then this is the drama for you.

This drama is very interesting to me. I saw so many good reviews for it and I like the idea and story line of Soulmate. I will be honest I did not except to wait so long for them to meet but I honestly think it was worth the wait.

It's 22 episodes and by now if you have watched a certain number of dramas you get the general idea of who the female lead and male lead will be. I came in this show knowing who the leads are and to my amazement (and some-what disappointment) it took about 13 episodes for them to meet (I hope you don't take this as a spoiler). When I first watched it, it felt like a drag. I could not understand why the writers would wait so long for them to meet and it annoyed me.

By the time I finished the drama I totally got the reason why they waited and I really appreciated in the end. It made the story line even more amazing to me.

This drama focuses on the idea of soulmates. Some people believe in soulmates and some don't. In the drama you have both of those type of people. The biggest question of course is "Are there really soulmates?" This drama totally answered it in every way. And I LOVED it! This totally made the story line amazing to me.

The cast is great and on point. I think every one did a great job on their roles and all the characters are well thought out. There is enough drama on here that you might not notice in the beginning that the leads haven't met yet. I will be honest that it will feel like a drag for some, especially those who love fast pace dramas but I feel that in the end it was worth the wait.

Some where iffy about the ending but I loved it and I think it went perfect with the story. It made perfect sense for the situation they where in at the time. One thing that makes this drama great is that there relationships are very realistic. I also felt like the ending answered the question that we were asking ourselves the whole drama "Are there really soulmates?" That to me made the drama great.

I gave the re-watch value an 7. I did write that I appreciated the first half of the show even though it felt kind of slow but I wouldn't necessarily watch that part again. I will watch the second half again because I truly thought it was brilliant and the best part of the show.

So to you people out there who are kind of scared because you like fast paced dramas then don't be. Trust me, the first half is not boring and it's a great way to set up a drama like this. The end result is all that really matters and trust me when I say it's the best part. Overall, the drama is great. I think the writers and cast did a really good job with this.

If you're an romantic lover than this is the drama for you.


PS, The song "This is not a love song" was stuck in my head a week after I finished the drama. Lol I loved it!

I just watched this drama in two days and I must say... I LOVED it! This drama is amazing in every way. I loved it from beginning to end. It's hilarious, romantic, suspenseful, and dramatic in a very good way.

The story is great and it makes this drama amazing. I was taken by the idea from the beginning. I love some romance but it's always good to have little plots to make the drama come alive and this had it all from court to family drama. I appreciated the age gape too because I think it made their relationship more dramatic and I've seen age gapes done greatly in some of my favorite dramas (Dal Ja's Spring and Biscuit Teacher Star Candy). The cases they had were very interesting too and I loved how the writer connected everything down to characters and situations together. It was like a big spider web to me.

I was very impressed with Lee Jong Suk. This is the first drama I've seen him in and I know I'll be watching School 2013 after this. I thought his acting was amazing in this drama. He conveyed a lot of emotions in all of his scenes and I thought he was perfect match for Lee Bo Young. The chemistry between these twos are amazing! I so brought their love for each other. The chemistry between the cast is great as well too. Jang Hye Sung is such an awesome character. She has to be one of my favorite female lead characters now. I love how snotty and witty she was and her attitude about certain situations. I think she is a very relate-able character. I loved all the characters, even secondary characters too. The characters are well fleshed out.

To add on, the best thing about this show is the character development. All the characters are developed towards the end in there own way. Even Min Joon Kook had character development and I loved it.

There is only one TINY problem that I had with the drama and that is the extension. It was very noticeable that the drama was extended when it reached episode 17. There was so many flashbacks scenes in that episode that it took up the first half of it. But it's only tiny so it might not be that noticeable to some. It still didn't take away from how great I think this drama is.

Overall, I think this drama is amazing and definitely will be added on to my favorites list. It's downright hilarious sometimes and has great chemistry between all the leads. You have great secondary characters and you overall have a great story. I definitely see myself watching this drama in a couple of months.

PS, I think I said "loved" a least twenty times in this review so it must count for something :)

When I think of the Hong Sisters I think of a bowl of assorted candy. When you dig your hand inside the bowl you hope to get your favorite candy but sometimes you end up getting the one you dislike *coughs Big* This time around I definitely pulled my favorite candy out of the bowl with Master's Sun.

I was bit worried at first because the Hong Sisters drama can pretty much be a hit or miss but I LOVED this. It was romantic and down right HILARIOUS! I laughed so much throughout this drama.

The cast is great. I already love Gong Hyo Jin and I think she did a great job but who surprised me is So Ji Sub. When I first heard about this I was surprised that they picked him as the lead for such a wacky drama. So Ji Sub is a great actor I just worried that this wouldn't be the role for him but I was so wrong. So Ji Sub steals the show with his witty humor and cute love for his big sun. By the end of the drama I fell in love with his character.

Speaking of characters I must commend the Hong Sisters for their development of Tae Yang. I enjoyed how her character developed over time. It was truly great to see. They could have done it because of the extension but I think they still did a good job of it. I loved all of the characters in the end as well. Kang Woo, the Little Sun, Secretary Kim, The Trash Man Ghost, and many more. The chemistry between not only the leads but the whole cast is what makes this drama truly amazing.

As for the plot, I think the Hong Sister's pulled out a gem. I really liked the idea of this drama. The romance, comedy, supernatural with a bit of horror sprinkled on top. I was a bit worried because of some the devices that they were using towards the end but they ended up using them very well. Everything about the plot wasn't perfect but I still ended loving this drama anyway.

I usually don't pay attention to the music as much while watching a drama but I couldn't help but notice it on here. The music is great. They had a great soundtrack and I was so ready to download the OST.

This drama has a lot of re-watch value. I'll probably be watching this again in a couple of months. Half of me wishes the drama wasn't over.

Overall, Master's Sun isn't perfect but that still doesn't mean it doesn't shine brightly. The cast has great chemistry. So Ji Sub and Gong Hyo Jin have amazing CHEMISTRY and there romance with each other is what carried this show. It has all the elements of an amazing drama. If you like romance, comedy, and a bit of horror then you'll love this drama as much as I did.

I decided to watch My Dear Boy out of boredom and it’s something I don’t regret. My Dear Boy is a drama about a boy and a woman who find comfort, friendship, and love together through the trials of their lives. I’ve seen many noona romances before, and though this isn’t anything new story wise to add to the genre, it has a warm feeling to it and was a joy to watch.

The story of My Dear Boy is very simple. Our male lead, Ahn Qing Hui, encounters our female lead, Luo Xiao Fei by accident because of their messy love lives. Though these two are very different, an odd friendship blossoms between them. Though the story is simple, the best thing about this drama is watching the budding friendship between our leads and how they grow by being there for each other. This drama is more than just romance, but about growing up, dealing with the complications of love and falling in love with someone, dealing with your career choices and what you choose to do with your future. These are the great things about the drama, though it’s not all perfect and it does suffer from a few flaws and that’s mostly pacing. This drama could have benefited from having lesser episodes and 16 probably would have been better. Also, some things could have been a little more clearer in the narrative during the latter half.

The cast is really good. Both Ruby and Derek do great jobs with their roles, especially in their emotional scenes. I really did believe in the chemistry between them and when I talk about chemistry I’m not simply speaking on a romantic level, but that they work really well together, and they never felt awkward around each other. I really believed in their friendship which I think is the best thing about this drama. I thought both Qing Hui and Xiao Fei were well written, interesting characters and Ruby and Derek embodied them bringing their characters to life. Watching their story made you want to see them grow and get their happy ending. I also liked the other male leads and I thought they were great additions because they weren’t so one note and they never felt like they were there to solely cause problems between our leads. They were well written and well used. I do think some of the supporting cast could have been used better. Shampoo’s appearance at one point felt off. The same thing with the Qing Hui’s friends. And some of the characters, mostly the family members, fall prey to the common tropes of the ‘I’m against the relationship so I’ll do everything to ruin it’.

Overall, this drama was a fun watch. It’s not perfect and has some flaws here and there, but it’s enjoyable to watch and I loved tuning in every week. Ruby and Derek are great and it’s a joy watching them both.

I recommend this drama if you’re a fan of Ruby or Derek, or noona romances because this is a nice addition to the genre. Simple, sweet, fun, and heartfelt.

After completing this drama I can truly say that I loved it... til it got to episode 14 and just got down right wacky.

The story isn't something spectacular but at first I enjoyed that they add the little "stalker" sub plot. It made it just a tad bit more interesting. What makes this story come alive though is the cast. You have the wonderful Lee Dong Wook and Lee Si Young starring in this drama and they both completely made me love their characters from the beginning to the end. You also have great supporting characters like Manager Kim and Dong Ah who are down right hilarious.

The reason I'm giving this drama a 7 is because it fell short in the end. It started off great. I was laughing and waiting every week for the next episodes to come out. (I'm remembering all the good moments in this show and trying to ignore the ending... a bit)

I almost gave this drama a 5. That's how pissed I was at the end. The ending was a total disappointment to me. Please do not let the title Wild Romance fool you. This show is wild but by the time you hit the end you'll realize that it's missing the romance. It's overshadowed by the middle of the show with Jong Hee's character. The sad thing is you can feel the chemistry oozing off of Moo Yeol and Eun Jae but the writers just could't keep up.

Another thing is the whole ex-girlfriend plot. I understand. I have seen this plot used in a couple of dramas so I have no problem with it. The problem is when the ex-girlfriend seems to steal the whole show. That's when it becomes a problem. This plot was way over used till the very end. Instead of over using this they could have developed Moo Yeol and Eun Jae's relationship more. It got to the point that at the very last episode I almost found it hard to believe that Moo Yeol even liked Eun Jae.

I liked the stalker plot at first because it made me want to play detective and find out who it was. That's until this plot was overused til the very end.

If you watch this drama I can tell you now you'll have a good laugh. You have a great cast. The story line isn't special but the cast brings it alive. Even with the little romance that was given to Moo Yeol and Eun Jae they still managed to make my heart flutter.

The thing that messed up this drama for me was the lack of romance. Also the stalker plot that was great for me at first until it got to the very end and the writers didn't know what to do with the plot anymore. Other than that it's honestly a good drama. If you can ignore those things you'll enjoy Wild Romance.

As for rewatch value as I stated before if you can ignore the bad ending and still enjoy the show you'll probably rewatch this show again. I'll rewatch this show again a little later but mostly like only up to episode 13.

As soon as you start the first episode you'll be swept away by the awesome female lead, swoon worthy male lead, and the hilarious situations that ensues with the characters around them. But I always say that you cannot rate a drama only on its beginning. Though Strong Woman Do Bong Soon never started out as a perfect drama, it starts to struggle towards the end of the race.

SWDBS follows Do Bong Soon, who has a supernatural ability that gives her incredible strength and it runs in the females in her family. Combine this with Park Hyung Shik as the leading male with hilarious side characters and it seems like it will be a match made in heaven. But this drama from the beginning has always suffered from tonal problems because of its other plotline that has to do with kidnapping. With one half of the show so cute and funny, it does not blend with the other half of the show that happens to be very serious. The writer had a hard time blending comedy and thriller together and the drama starts to suffer in the end because of it. Even with these problems I still believe that you will have a great time watching this drama, especially the first half but you might become frustrated towards the latter half.

It also suffers from pacing problems and at times it will linger on scenes that do not move the plot forward. And also, the kidnapping plotline itself is just not strong. There is nothing really exciting about it because everything is really obvious. The best thing about the plot itself is the romance between the two leads because everything else is not as strong.

The cast is hands down the best thing about this drama. I came in knowing that Park Bo Young will be great. She is a really good actress and I've always felt that she has been able to add a lot of depth to the characters that she is given. Park Hyung Shik was a surprise for me. I've never watched him in a drama before but after this I know I'll be watching all of his past dramas and future ones too. As we know, a lot of idols are cast in leading roles because of their popularity and looks but Park Hyung Shik is not just a handsome idol (and he is handsome!) but a really good actor and he showcases that in this drama. He had a lot of strong scenes that surprised me and I’m already looking forward to seeing him in something new. His character Min Hyuk will make your heart swoon. If you watch this and don't like the plot, I will guarantee that you'll love his character. The way he looks at Do Bong Soon will make your heart melt.

Ji Soo will be a bit of surprise for many if you seen his past work before. Ji Soo is usually the guy to give you second male lead syndrome but he definitely is not able to do that here. Unlike others, I did not have that much of a problem with the character itself. The rest of the cast is good too. They are hilarious and it’s a joy to watch them.

I will give fair warning to people. If you get offended by some jokes then this will not be the drama for you. There is a lot of gay jokes and people weren't particularly happy with the domestic abuse either (and with good reason.) So, if you are bothered by gay jokes, I wouldn't suggest watching this because they never really let up on it either. It's not just one joke but multiple ones.

Overall, I must say for myself personally I really liked this drama and though I think it started to drag towards the end, I still really enjoyed it. It's a drama that you'll have a lot of fun with. I think if you pay attention to the leads and the hilarious moments then you'll really enjoy this drama. My best recommendation is to not pay much attention to the kidnapping plot line. I really feel like it holds the drama back from being really good. Despite the story not being strong, I think a lot of people will still enjoy this drama. I think this is one of those dramas, that you have to watch without paying too much attention to the plot and just enjoy it. Because once you start to pay attention to it, it will fall apart.

That being said, if you like a swoon worthy male lead and a badass female lead who kicks ass then you'll love this drama. If you like your story strong, tight, and with good pacing then this might not be the drama for you.

Bad Love is a very good drama. I will definitely look for more dramas with Kwon Sang Woo. I think he did a fantastic job with this drama and had a great chemistry with his female lead. I was sold with the title and the plot the moment I saw it.

It started off with a solid 9 for me. I thought the plot was enticing and the chemistry between the leads were great but then when it hit around episode 16 the plot seemed to be going on in circles. It was hard for me to get through the last couple of episodes.

Nonetheless, the drama is still very good. You might not find the last episodes to be a drag like me and enjoy them very much. Overall, this drama is great love story between two people who are connected by fate. You have a great story and a great cast. Kwon Sang Woo does an amazing job and I found his character to be very interesting to me.

I wouldn't particularly watch this drama again. If I did, it would be to go back to certain scenes with the leads (CHEMISTRY!!) but other then that I don't see me re-watching this anytime soon.

(Off note, It was very frustrating seeing the female lead get beat down for some of the things that happened. And when I say frustrating I mean it. I almost wanted to jump in the drama and tell some of the characters off.)

I watched this drama because of the cast and the idea sounded good. I really like the actress Chae Rim and watched it because of her but by the end of the drama I became a fan of Kwon Sang Woo. The drama is good but overall it really isn't that special. I was disappointed by the story because the idea really sounds good but it just wasn't done right to me. The writers could have done better.

It's really SLOW. Like extremely slow and sometimes I found myself skipping scenes to the point that it was painful. I probably only saw 60% of the drama because of me skipping. I really wished that the story would just get to the point sometimes.

This is not saying that the drama is bad. It's not but I like fast paced dramas and this definitely wasn't one. So if your like me too then this might not be the drama for you.

The cast is good. It isn't much to say about them but I will say that I became a huge fan of Kwon Sang Woo. I loved his character and I was more invested in his relationship with Soo Ji than the main couple. Soo Ji and Yoon Ho Jae (Kwon Sang Woo) had an awesome relationship and half of me wished that they were the main couple. I felt that there story was way more interesting to see and they were the best thing about this drama.

Also it's takes the main couple a long time to actually get together, so that also contributes to why I say it's slow.

As for the rewatch value it's low for me. I do not see myself watching this drama again. I would only go back to see the moments between Soo Ji and Yoon Ho Jae.

Overall, I think if you're a fan of Chae Rim, So Ji Sub, or Kwon Sang Woo then you'll enjoy the drama. I won't say that'll you love it but I definitely think you'll enjoy it.
