Just finished watching this amazing drama that is highly recommended by most viewers of Kdrama. It is really good, full of action and complicated back story that keeps things interesting to watch and at the edge of your seats until the very end. It's pretty much like City Hunter in my opinion, maybe because Park Min Young is here. The male lead, Ji Chang Wook is so handsome so that is a plus in this show. One thing that was just not good on this show is that, you have to endure the maybe 4-5 episodes at the start that I found boring and had to endure. It's because they are still establishing the back story on those episodes and as I've said, its quite deep and complicated. But good, because its just not some shallow plot. The sweet moments of the male and female lead were also just right, not too mushy or overdone. Just enough light moments to rest from the serious moments of the drama. Action scenes, fight scenes were awesome. I give this a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rate and its not just because everyone says so. Almost everything in this drama was done perfectly.

Felt realistic

Just finished watching this drama which lead me on that it was a Romcom but turned to a melodrama towards the end....I also liked that it stars Kang Joon (from Are You Human too...you can't just get enough of him!)

I agree that this is not the best romance Kdrama ever. However, it felt realistic. Like, the FL had a daughter who died so she definitely needs a lot of time to grieve. Like, it may take forever to heal... And it is not fair that she will just jump into a relationship with ML just because she needs comfort. FL first needs to heal herself, find herself and then she can be happy again...

As for the ML, good for him that he is just continuing his life as a chef, and furthering his career in the process, because when he heard the sad story of FL on Ep 15, he thought that he can be the comfort through the rain of FL, but FL decided that she should handle her sorrow by herself, which I feel is very mature of her.

ML is just really this emotionally sensitive guy that easily empathizes with anyone with a sad story. He is really in touch with his feelings, coming from a whole family with full set of parents, unlike with FL, who is an orphan and is just too distant from her own feelings in general. (except when she had her own daughter that she just gave all the love she had not experienced as a child growing up so when the daughter died, FL was literally devastated)

So, in the end, I must admit, it sucks that's its an open ending. But, for me, I feel that, the 2 main leads, needs healing...and probably they will come around. Since they have known each other for so long, there could be a possibility of getting back together....or not...I mean, it doesn't matter really.

As long broken hearts are healed through time...Like what happened to the brother and the FL's bestfriend. Its been so long since they are friends only, and they stopped wanting to be each other's special someone.

But in the end, since they are friends, (the brother of FL and the bestfriend of FL), they finally took the plunge and got married....That is what I see the future of FL and ML later on...since its open...this is only my imagination....only my opinion....

I hope that we view this drama with an open mind, not how other viewers complained about this drama. It definitely has good and bad points. But overall, its fine. Not the best, but its fine.

Because This is My First Life - finished this when it ended last Tuesday. Just as I anticipated, it was a great drama from start to finish. At the time it was on air, there were like 10 ongoing dramas I was watching, so I almost skipped it. I'm glad I didn't. It was a good watch. The build up romance was good and refreshing. The characters were able to express everything through their eyes. Male and female leads were both great in conveying the message of the drama. Learned a lot from this show. A must watch in my list.

Just finished this great drama. It has drama, action, legal aspects, comedy and romance in it. Its my first time watching actor Lee Jong-Suk. He is amazing. I will be watching more of his dramas or movies. I also liked the noona romance on this drama. Its so heartfelt and touching. Its also so cool that Lee Jong-Suk's role can read minds. Overall, casting is good and story is right on. Highly recommended!

I liked how this drama is a melodrama and not a romcom. It has a great storyline. About how reporters not just "report" news but sometimes, they manipulate it, according to their needs or someone's needs, like a higher up or a sponsor or a shareholder for their company perhaps. It shows the dark side of media. Like not everything you see or hear is real or true. Fair enough. As for my reason to watch this drama is the actor "Lee Jong Suk", I did not really see him in this drama. What I mean is, he played the role well. Like he was really the reporter that he played in the role. He disappeared into the show and just became the plain and simple character he plays. He is that good. As for the female lead, Park Shin Hye, its my first time watching her really, because I gave up watching her on the drama "The Heirs" because of the shallow story line. So in this drama, I really appreciated her acting and her physical beauty. She and Lee Jong Suk had chemistry, as they all said. But their love story was not really the focus here. Its more of the great story line about "Reporting and the News" thingy. The love story here was just kinda the side dish, not the main dish. Its refreshing for me. Anyway, if I recommend this drama, yes of course. Its one of the best dramas out there. It is on the serious side but nicely paced. But if you are looking for a romance and feel good romcom, this is not for you. I can recommend other dramas.

Good Doctor - watching this because I can't get enough of Hospital Ship and new eps are out only on wed-thursdays so I have to watch another medical drama. Plus this drama is awesome. It has good reviews and was even remade recently into an American tv show. So that goes to emphasize its that great. Wonder why I never got around to watching this drama before. I got stuck with the hyped Doctors and Doctor Stranger. Doctor Stranger was good though. I am now an official fan of medical dramas, yahoo.

One of the best Taiwanese drama out there. Re-watching this from time to time. It's so good. I mean, Meteor Garden was the one that started me on T-dramas...but this drama is a good heartfelt one. And believe me when I say, this original drama is better than its Korean remake. Trust me, stick to this version.

My review when I watched in Oct 2016:
Finished watching this amazing Taiwanese drama yesterday. It was a 13 episode drama but it is about 1 hour and 30 mins long per episode. I think its broken down differently in different sites. Just check it out.
Anyway, my verdict is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. It is not a perfect show but it definitely captured my emotions. I was definitely entertained. Its a good mix of emotions such as comedy, drama, heartbreaking, warmth and comfy. It was a great drama. The lead actors are a delight to watch as well. Don't know where to start praising this drama. I heard that it won a lot of awards in Taiwan. And the very fact that it was remade in Korea as "The Time that we were not In Love" means that it has a good story plot for another country to remake it.
First off, the lead actor, Bolin Chen and the lead actress, Ariel Lin, did a great performance to convince you that they are indeed bestfriends who are hiding secret longing from one another. It was very heartbreaking to watch up until episode 12 I think. It makes you think like "Are they ever gonna be together?". But of course, we know on the onset that they will be. So just be patient.
The one thing I just did not like was the very first episode or atleast half of it, its kinda boring, with the monkey or gorilla something that was being chased by Cheng You Ching (Ariel Lin) at the beginning. I know this signifies "time" because she was problematic as hell for being 30 and mature. But it was kinda off putting for me. Like, you can be happy at any age please. Like there is a saying that "life begins at 40" right. Just look at Li DaRen's (Bolin Chen) mom, who got married who know how old she was to Uncle Bai (the bestfriend of Li DaRen's mom). Anyway, maybe the gorilla thing just pissed me off. Haha. Just my two cents. But I promise you, just get pass that, you will enjoy the whole drama.
As for Li DaRen, I like how he is so gentle and kind. A perfect match for our arrogant Cheng You Ching. He is always there for her, even if he has a girlfriend. And never outsteps his boundaries as a male friend, especially when You Ching had a boyfriend/fiancee in Ding Li Wei.
As for Ding Li Wei, I am not sure. I think that he was really an ass before when him and You Ching broke up 5 years ago, but this time, he really has changed. But he was kinda "caught in the act" that night with his assistant coming out of the shower in a towel. I feel that he was kinda set up by his assistant. It was not really explained further. Since Li Wei had a history of cheating with You Ching, so its unforgivable to even see a woman, much more, a barely dressed woman in a towel in his apartment. So that is that. You Ching was about to break off her engagement to him anyway. So it just gave her all the more reason to break up.
As for the "lessons" that You Ching kept on imparting per episode, the lessons for the "mature woman", it is nice and left a mark. They are all true. Any female could learn from them.
And finally, the part where they are about to become a "couple", at the IKEA showroom, on You Ching's birthday, it was so cute. Like You Ching knows that DaRen is courting her, so she then calls and consults her "bestfriend" over the phone with is DaRen also...Then after that, things just went into their "proper places" as it should be. Like being with each other even if flying back and forth between Singapore and Taiwan just to see each other for 2 hours at the least. The marriage proposal after deciding to finally be together in Taiwan after a coin toss between choosing from Singapore and Taiwan to settle. The wedding, of course. The awkward way that they kiss at first. The acceptance of the mom of DaRen with You Ching as official part of the family. The ties created between You Ching's family and DaRen's family, that they can visit each other anytime. And finally, the awkward honeymoon in Singapore. Then the perfect ending that points out that all relationships are not perfect after all. How DaRen persuades pissed of You Ching to go home after coming back to her parent's house with a luggage since they fought.
Soundtrack is pretty good. Matched the cozy and warm feeling while watching this show.
Obviously, I liked this drama a lot. Will repeat it again sometime soon. Or watch the remake (The time we were not in love), which I am not sure will measure up to this.

Finished this Tdrama last night. It was just fine. Aaron Yan Oppa (yeah i know he's not Korean, but still an Oppa in my book) kept me watching this drama. Otherwise, I would have dropped it. He's on another CEO role by the way ("Just You" reference). The start was not exciting, just an office drama. But I also learned how products are produced, pitched and sold by manufacturing companies before it reaches us, the consumers. Technical talk I know. Romance was lacking on this drama, in my opinion. Aaron tried his best to make the drama sweet and adorable. Female lead was just ok. But she had great chemistry with Aaron. Story is just light. Just enough suspense to keep the story going. And you can say from my review, I just stayed for Aaron Yan. Next stop: "Fall in Love with Me".

Manhole - Just finished this drama. I have mixed feelings if its good or not. Some parts good, then some parts funny. It just felt frustrating that all 15 eps were dedicated on running after the female lead. I guess that's the plot. Maybe the only compensation is it ended well. Just my opinion, i don't recommend it.

Just finished Meteor Garden 2018 yesterday. It was cool and cute. It was a refreshing take on the well loved Taiwanese version from way back 2001. And they scrapped the season 2, they just jammed it all on 1 season, that is why its 49 episodes instead of the former 27 episodes. This Daoming Si is definitely handsome, but younger. And the fashion choices are different at the most. No headbands or sandos...thank god... Shancai is different too. But she's cute. They added some different aspects like the F4 plays bridge...and of course the technology...cellphones are way different from 2001 to present. Also there is a use of social media. Anyway, I liked it, its on Netflix and easy to binge watch. Definitely recommended.

My review as I was starting the drama:
A Gentleman's Dignity - just started this drama which I saw that is available in Netflix. So it's convenient. It's an old drama so its completed and I can binge watch anytime. Unlike with ongoing dramas. Plus it was highly recommended as a must watch by some drama fanatics like me. I started watching last night, just on Ep 1 and it was great. I mean, no Oppas (younger ones) that I have seen before but they are more mature actors on it so the acting is brilliant. It is supposed to be the South Korean answer to the American show Sex and the City (my fave by the way). But this time its about 4 males. Funny moments and musings of the characters are on point. I will definitely keep watching this one!

---------------------------------------------------------------
My review after I FINISHED the drama:

Just literally finished watching this drama. It is one of the best comedy dramas I have watched. It also has romance in it. So its a RomCom. How come it took me so long to watch this? I must not be calling myself a Kdrama fan before when I have not watched this yet. It is the best drama with all the mature actors in it that is why they delivered the acting so superbly. Story was good too. Nothing too corny or violent or no evil villains here. Just plain comedy and friendship between 4 men. It is exactly a Sex and the City but told from men's perspective and less emphasis on sex. Maybe because of the setting too, its in South Korea so people are more conservative, which is more to my liking.

The music was not that prominent, unlike in other dramas, but they seem to be on point for the scenes.

The 2nd or 3rd male leads, the bad student and the son of Dojin contributed well to the story. Nothing too drastic or overacted.

The 4 female leads, or the partners of each of the 4 guys were also awesome. They complimented the men so well and the story. They had just the right acting. And they were all beautiful as well as their partners were equally handsome and dashing.

There was never a time a wasn't laughing at a scene. This just shows I was truly entertained.

This drama is definitely one of my recommended dramas now and I will surely re-watch. This drama is brilliant.

While You Were Sleeping - Just finished this drama late last night. It was good. It closed all the loose ends properly. It was a good drama with good writing and plot. However, for my part, I felt that the romance was somewhat just forced or squeezed in. Just to acknowledge that Suzy and Jong Sok Oppa were a handsome pair in this drama...Or maybe its just me because this was supposed to be a law thriller and I like romantic comedy too much. Either way, just my thoughts...

Started to watch this last month but got stopped due to some circumstances (I moved houses). Plus I am also watching this with my husband. One of the KDramas he agreed to watch with me since there is not much cutie romance in it.
Its a refreshing drama to watch if you are tired of sweety sugary romance dramas. And if you are into law a little bit. It has lots of comedy in it and little action. Plus Kang So Ra is here. And that lead guy from "Lovers in Paris".

Absolute Boyfriend - started this drama since I am watching I am not a Robot(sorry, korean drama reference) and they have the same theme, robot thingy, and I just took notice since I found Jiro Wang so handsome that I want to check this drama out. So far so good. Now I am also back to T-dramas now...where I actually started with Asian Dramas after all (Meteor Garden, I am referring to you...)

Discovery of Romance- Just finished this drama. I watched this because of Sung Joon from I need romance 3. It's a good drama, how come I did not "discover" it sooner...the cast is great and the story line is awesome. If it wasn't for Sung Joon, I wouldn't have paid attention to this gem of a drama. Even if Sung Joon Oppa was not lead here, he did a great performance. Was not too fond of the lead guy, Eric Mun, but he was good too. Female lead was just ok.
