OH MY GOD PLEASE WATCH THIS DRAMA!!! IT’S SO SO GOOD THAT I’M HAVING A HARD TIME PUTTING INTO WORDS!!!

Let me just start off with the fact that two of the first dramas I watched were I Really Really Like You and Playful Kiss, so seeing Lee Min Ki and Jung So Min in a drama again was exciting and nostalgic. I had high expectations for this show since the writer of this show also wrote Ho Goo’s Love (which, by the way, is a MUST watch) and I  worried that the bar I’d set for the show would not be met, which would probably ruin my love for the actors and the writer. However, my worries were unnecessary, because THIS SHOW IS IN MY TOP FIVE NOW! I can’t even begin to tell you how much I adored this show (though I must, since this is a review after all)! My expectations weren’t just met, they were exceeded! The plot, the actors, the music, the CHARACTERS! Everything was just so, so perfect and genuine!

Story/Plot: Oh my god, where do I even begin? This show was just so layered and wonderful! It wasn’t a melodrama by any means, but contained so much depth. The plot contained three simple plotlines: cohabitation/contract marriage, rich man and poor woman, and a struggling long term relationship. Often, when stories try to cram too many plotlines into one show, there are too many loose bits and ends. But in this drama, every character was purposeful and important, adding texture and depth to the story and the themes, and there were no loose ends. Speaking of themes, this drama was very progressive and dealt with issues that usually aren’t dealt with in Korean dramas. It challenged traditional gender stereotypes, sexual harassment in the work place, and the traditional meaning of marriage, but all in a very thoughtful and eloquent way. Perhaps I’m making this show sound boring, like a class at school, but it’s difficult to explain how such a simple idea was so revolutionized through some VERY skilled writing. The whole show seemed deliberate, and not cliche at all, despite how the storyline seems on the surface. You’ll just have to see it for yourself! I promise that you’ll love every moment of it!

Characters/Cast: As I was saying earlier, the surface level plotline is very simple, but what really enhanced the story and made it so enjoyable were the ABSOLUTELY PERFECT characters! All of them were so realistic, and their thoughts were clear and coherent, and they weren’t there just to waste screentime. Starting with the main couple, Ji Ho and Se Hee were just so nice to watch. They had great chemistry and by this point, I just want LMK and JSM to date in real life! Ji Ho was really the star, because seeing such an intelligent main character in dramas is rare. She knew what she wanted and she approached it wholeheartedly, and overall, she was a very relatable character. Se Hee, on the other hand, encompasses a person’s more weary and cautious side, because he was afraid to be hurt and even more afraid of hurting others. The show focused on them and their character development rather than adding useless love triangles. On the topic of triangles, there were technically two, but both were short lived and ESSENTIAL to the story, because they brought out new sides in the main characters. What really stood out to me was how realistic the rivals were (if you could even call them that). I’d say that one of my favorite characters was the ex girlfriend, and I can’t say more without spoiling the story, but her arch was one that was worth watching. She was a realistic and admirable character, unlike the conniving ex girlfriends you usually see in dramas. The other two couples in the story were equally important, and their stories were full of substance and lessons worth watching. Soo Ji teaches us to follow our dreams and stand up for what’s right, against the face of adversity. Ho Rang and Won Seok teach us that there’s a difference between love and marriage, and that the bad things that happen are often unavoidable and we must move forward. I won’t go into the details, but the character development in all three couples is worth watching and then rewatching a couple more times! Every wonderful character in this story was played by a wonderful actor that truly did the characters justice, and I have no complaints at all with the perfect casting or the extremely convincing acting. (I might be a bit biased since I love Lee Min Ki, but the difference for someone who doesn’t love him already might be the difference between an 11/10 vs a 10/10 rating. Either way, it’s PERFECT!)

Music: This review is already long enough, so I’ll be brief. I downloaded the whole soundtrack! So cute and perfectly suited for this drama! >v<

Rewatch Value: Usually I don’t even mention the rewatch value since I rarely rewatch dramas regardless of how good they are, but I have to mention it this time! I finished episode 14 two days before episode 15 came out, and I started to rewatch my favorite episodes while I waited! I just wanted to relive all the cute moments, and I can’t wait to finish the show so that I can rewatch and relive everything a few months from now! The show is really refreshing and light, despite the heavy progressive reform oriented subplots, and it seems to be very timeless. It’s worth watching at any age, but I feel like it gets better and better as you get older and experience dilemmas faced by the characters. The value for me is a solid 10/10, since I’m already itching to rewatch it!

Overall: As you’re probably aware by now, because of all the gushing I’ve been doing, I LOVE THIS SHOW! I can’t recommend it highly enough! Everything was flawless, and I don’t say that very often. Please give this beautiful show a chance, because I know you won’t regret it! <3 In fact, you’ll be missing out if you don’t!

Maybe this show will be part of your room 19 ;))


Edit (Contains a hint of a soft spoiler): I've been reading a lot of comments saying that Ji Ho was selfish in the last two episodes, and I just wanted to say that I completely disagree - Ji Ho was trying to understand her own feelings and see whether or not her feelings were long lasting, and she gave Se Hee a chance to do so as well. While this might have hurt Se Hee in the short term, it let both of them be sure about whether or not they want to be together for the long term, so that they aren't hurt once they're in a truly serious and committed relationship.

When it comes to television shows, especially Asian ones, since they're all so similar, I tend to be very picky. But when I watched this show, I didn't even have the heart to judge any of them. It was just so adorable! Ariel Lin's character, Xiang Qin, came off as bit annoying at first, but as I continued to watch, I began to adore her. The same went along with every other one of the characters. I watched many other versions of Itazura no Kiss, which is what this show was based off of, but this was the best by far. I was adamant on disliking this show, but as I continued to watch it, I began to love it more and more. By the time I finished the second series, I had decided this was the best rom com I had ever watched. The relationship between the Jiang family members were so enviable and heartwarming. Usually, I dislike shows with love at first sight and whatnot, but in this show, the romance was so pure and innocent, I didn't mind at all. I started It Started With a Kiss only a week or so ago, and I just finished They Kiss Again. In other words, I watched a 50 hour show in less than a week. I was REALLY into it!

Now I'm actually getting to the analysis. As for the story line, Itazura no Kiss was one of the first anime I ever watched and I've always loved the plot. The makers of the show didn't mess with the plot too much, and whatever they added only made the drama better. It really is a sweet and heartwarming love story. As for the casting, I think it was perfect. Joe Cheng portrayed both the cold blooded and loving sides of Zhi Shu very well. It's rather annoying when people cast extremely attractive actors and actresses to play roles of people who are supposed to be average, so I appreciated that the artists didn't make Ariel Lin too attractive. Of course, she's a very beautiful woman, but the way they did her hair and clothes fit Xiang Qin's character. I can't really think of any role that seemed off, to be honest. Overall, they did a good job with casting, and the actors and actresses portrayed their characters very well.

This was my first Taiwanese drama, and I had trouble with dissecting and analyzing the language. I had to pay attention to the subtitles and the words were kind of like a background buzz. The music came off as really strange at first. However, as I continued to watch, I began to get used to the repetitive words and phrases, and I actually listened to the opening songs. I didn't like them at first since the language was so new to me, but they definitely fit the show. They were also pretty old, considering this show was made in 2005, so that explains a bit of my distaste. And now, after I've watched the entire series, I can say with conviction that the music was perfect for this drama.

And lastly, I'm definitely rewatching this drama. I just finished it, yet I already wanna go back and restart from episode 1. Now that I'm done, I feel all empty and sad ; - ;. I need to quickly find something new to watch before I get all disappointed that it ended. I'm going to wait until I forget about the plot before rewatching it, but it's hard to hold back.

Overall, from everything I wrote above and just how lengthy it all was, you can tell that I absolutely love this show. It was perfect in every single way. Others might not agree with me, but oh well. Out of all the dramas I've watched, this is easily one of my favorites!

I'm going to keep this review short. If there was even one issue with this show, I would list it, but I honestly can't find a single flaw. The casting was perfect and the acting was superb, some of the best I've ever seen. (Not to mention basically everybody in this show was attractive) The action scenes were great, and the plot was ingenious. This is one of my all time favorite K-dramas because it was just so flawless. I dare you to watch this show, and if you can point out even one substantive flaw, I'll take down this review. It was just that good! (Btw Ji Chang Wook is some serious eye candy <3)

I'll be honest with you. This is what this show was NOT: original, complicated, twisted. It's not a show that I'll remember as I'm being barraged with new dramas everyday. This show was, however, sweet and simple and honest about love. The overall theme was that love isn't all sweet and kind - it's not always gonna be rainbows and sunshine. This show was about overcoming the everyday obstacles. No matter how hard it may seem now, there's always gonna be a better day, especially if you work towards it. Thus, it's not exactly a gushy, shortsighted high school romance. It's a bit more mature, so if you can handle that, I highly recommend it.

This story follows the lives of four women at different stages of their relationships. Let me warn you again, the plot was NOT original, but that was my only complaint, if you can even call it a complaint. However, the simple story line was well directed with the right amount of fan service and comedy. It was funny, but not over the top, and the characters were lovable. There were also little to no plot holes (and honestly, if there had been even one, I would've ranked it down one or two points. The plot was so simple that a plot hole would've been the stupidest thing. But there honestly weren't any, thank god.) There was no overarching nemesis or evil - the evil was ones self. Because of this, the characters were a bit annoying at times, but aren't we all? It's about learning from your mistakes so you can be happier in the future. Nobody comes out of the womb knowing what's right all the time. That was the whole point of the show, anyway. My personal favorite couple was Da Jeong and her husband. Their romance was the sweetest, because they were together for so long but still managed to survive and thrive. She was also the most mature, which I admired. Since this show was so big on character development, it would've been disappointing if the characters didn't develop well. Thankfully, they all met a peaceful resolution, which was definitely worth the few slow moments. I especially loved Mi Mo's development. She irked me at the beginning, because she didn't think things through. I liked her more and more as the story progressed, and while she won't ever be my favorite character, she's definitely relatable. Another aspect to look forward to was the sweet father and son relationship between Song Soo Hyuk and Min Woo. They definitely made me smile~

The acting was spot on in ever category. I have nothing else to add lol. The music was also great~ (I downloaded the song by Hong Dae Kwang)

I will not be rewatching this, honestly. It was sweet but I was never sitting at the edge of my seat. It was more like a ferris wheel than a roller coaster ride (which isn't a bad thing, mind you!)

Overall, I liked this show. It was like a vitamin amongst all the angsty melo and action dramas I've been watching recently~ You may have to a skip around a bit when it gets slow, but the ending is worth it~

This show did not give me a second of rest. It was just plot twist on plot twist on another plot twist. Honestly, I couldn't figure out if I liked Maru or not throughout the series. (I mean, personality wise, I couldn't figure out if he was an antagonistic character. Obviously, I LOVE him. Sooo sexy ~swoon~) But I liked that aspect. It was interesting. The characters weren't as one dimensional as many K-Drama characters are. Overall, this show had a smart plot that kept me on edge, and I constantly wanted more. I highly recommend it, as it's one of my top 10 shows. (I think I finished it within a week.)

As I've stated above, the story was pure genius. This plot sat at the fine line between innocent and edgy - it was cute and sexy and thrilling and angsty and dear lord, Song Joong Ki - and it was executed wonderfully. This show was a melodrama done RIGHT. The characters contained substance and were interesting to watch. The ending was my favorite part, because it wrapped the show up nicely, somehow managing to give the characters, even the antagonists, a happy ending. Speaking of antagonists, it was sometimes difficult to distinguish who the good guy was, which made the show all the more entertaining. Instead of outlining good and bad as black and white, the characters were all shades of gray (no 50 Shades jokes, please.) This really enhanced the plot, because humans are complicated, and they're not always either good or bad. I have no complaints about the plot.

Acting and cast: Song Joong Ki. Need I say more? This man was the embodiment of sexy and cute in this drama and I totally fell for him. But bias aside, his acting was on point. Before watching this show, I'd only seen Moon Chae Won as the second lead in "Take Care of the Young Lady", but she definitely shined in this show. The chemistry between the two was equally undeniable. The casting as a whole was perfect, and the side characters and antagonists were really great. Just remembering this show gives me chills of excitement!

The music wasn't memorable, but since it was a melodrama that strayed to a darker side, this point didn't really bother me. I feel like any upbeat or catchy music would have actually decreased the shows value, since the music would have clashed with the atmosphere of the show, making it seem like just another romantic drama.

Overall, I just loved everything about this show! It was definitely one of the more mature and well-made dramas I've watched. This show made me fall in love with both of the leads, and I highly recommend it. Fair warning, though: if you're a binge watcher and you're currently busy, I would not recommend starting this drama right now, because once you start, you won't be able to stop!

Update: It's been about a year since I watched this drama, and if I had the time, I would definitely rewatch it. (Perhaps just for Song Joong Ki ;3)

I had such high expectations for this show, and it astonishes me how badly they managed to fuck this show up. It started off so good, with some real potential (for like, the first 5 episodes), and then it just spiraled downwards into a complete disaster.

The plot. I don't know where to begin. It was just so mundane, boring, average, all the other synonyms. The love stories were just... terrible. I mean, honestly. I feel like they picked cliches out of a hat and squeezed it into one show: rich person x poor person, arrogance x naivety, etc. I liked where they were going with the 'love isn't all pure and clean' thing, but it was just so poorly executed. Some of the main problems presented in this show were so absolutely petty, and overall the show was just a dragging mess. This show could have been 10 episodes, and you wouldn't have missed anything. I wish they had gone more in depth with the side characters, because the ending only presented solutions and happy endings for the leads and the side characters' stories' were left unfinished. Not to mention the 'happy ending' was super cringe worthy. Basically, this show could've been so good, but everything that could've gone wrong went wrong.

With actors like Uee and Sung Joon, I expected fireworks and excitement. All I got was cringe worth glances and little to no chemistry. Seriously. Considering that the show was irritatingly romance focused, the romance was barely there! The second leads had more chemistry, but their story was too basic and boring. I feel like they combined two boring couples and expected something great, but boring + boring = more boring. I'm surprised that I finished this show, to be honest, because nothing. NOTHING. Appealed to me.

The music was the one good point for me, because it was light and upbeat and I really liked it. But that's not enough to make up for all the other flaws.

Considering that I was yawning through the first time watching it, I definitely will not be rewatching this drama.

Overall, it was just boring and average. I mean, it wasn't total crap - I sat it out and finished it - but it was pretty darn close. I still don't understand how the romance wasn't present with such an attractive cast.

I don't understand why this drama isn't rated higher. 7.9 isn't bad, but I feel that this drama was better than that. Sure, it dragged on at some points, but this drama stayed true to what I thought Yong Pal's character should be - a hero. He started off as the illegal medical practitioner to save his sister, and then he gave up his practice to do the same. The end goal is what was important to him, and along the way, he started to care for Han Yeo Jin (Kim Tae Hee). I understand that some people wanted more medical scenes, but that was one of the stated dilemmas of this show. Yong Pal was trapped and wasn't able to be the doctor he wanted to be. This show deals with health care in a broader sense, especially for profit organizations like the hospital Yong Pal worked for. Not to mention, the casting and acting was wonderful. I mean, c'mon, it's Joo Won and Kim Tae Hee. How could it not be? What I'm trying to say is don't be fooled by the ratings. This show may not be a solid 10 (I thought it was while watching it but I can definitely understand some of the short comings outlined in other reviews) but it was definitely enjoyable. I highly recommend it!

This show isn't very complicated or ingenious, but I don't think the writers intended it to be. I understand the lower ratings, but if you want to watch a drama that's "Warm and Cozy", this drama is 10/10! The casting and acting were ON POINT, and I just felt so warm and cozy while watching this drama. It wasn't complicated and it doesn't make your heart ache or stomach flip flop. It just makes you smile and feel all happy and fuzzy inside, and I know that everyone needs that kind of show at some point in their life. If you're having a bad day or just want to relax, this show is for you!

P.S: The music was soooo goood! So warm and cozy! ^^~ In fact, I downloaded some of the songs~ (Thank You by K.Will, Without You by Jubi and SunnyHill)

Watch this drama! You won't regret it!

If you're looking for a drama that makes you laugh out loud and clutch your stomach, Modern Farmer is PERFECT. This drama had me on the verge of tears - not because of sadness, but because my stomach hurt from laughing. Modern farmer was quirky and unrealistic, a light hearted show with little to no serious scenes. It was a nice break from reality. I would highly recommend it to anyone who want to forget their problems and laugh their socks off. The plot definitely odd, but not complex. The basis of the show is strange, but other than that it's pretty straight forward - not really the anxiety inducing, constantly-at-the-edge-of-your-seat kind of ordeal. What really makes this drama so lovable are the whimsical characters in a whimsical country town and their relationships with each other. This show is more family/friends/comedy focused than romance or melodrama, and the relationships between the characters are adorable and interesting. It doesn't score very high on the romance scale, but I didn't really mind. It was interesting regardless. My only complaint was the ending. It wasn't terrible, and in fact, it was strangely realistic, but realism isn't why I watched the rest of this drama, so I didn't understand the writer's intentions; there were so many loose ends and it was rather irritating. It kind of devalued the "don't give up on your dreams" theme. You'll know what I mean when you watch it. However, this didn't change the fact that I loved this drama and I would've watched it regardless of the ending. The acting and cast was perfect, and a lot of the characters were purposely overdramatic, but it wasn't a bad thing. It fit the show and only enhanced the comedy. Lee Min Ki definitely fit this role, and I want him to be in roles similar to this in the future - he just doesn't suit serious characters for me (Bride of the Century, anybody?) Anyway, every actor seemed like they were born to play the character that they played in this drama and I loved it! Okay, this drama has Lee Min Ki, so music had to be good. And it was. It suit the show to a tee and I even downloaded When Love Comes by Infinite. The music was bright and happy. I do plan on rewatching this show, or at least the funny parts, because it always makes me laugh. It's perfect for a slow day. Overall, I loved this show, and while it doesn't reach the apex of quality dramas, it's definitely one of the best light hearted dramas I've watched. I highly recommend it! All your worries will melt away~ <3

This was a nice little break from the thrillers I've been used to recently. It was refreshing. It wasn't anything too special, but it was definitely great. The chemistry between the leads was undeniable. The story was mediocre and the ending was predictable, but I was still satisfied because the execution was spot on. I definitely recommend watching this show. The romance was very present and it wasn't all about math like the scenario might have you believe lol. Watch it! You won't regret it <3

I'm having a hard time putting my feelings into words. I guess I don't have to, because the best part about this show were the feelings that I felt while watching it. I didn't understand why I felt what I did - it was such a simple, clean, pure show, yet my heart ached. There was no antagonist, nothing besides the inevitable passing of time and the characters own very realistic shortcomings (I don't mean the actors. The acting was wonderful! But the characters were very realistic and relatable.) Kyuto was a robot so obviously she didn't express emotions like normal humans, yet you could still understand the feelings that she wasn't supposed to even have. This drama was short, but incredibly memorable in all its simplistic, minimalistic beauty. The dialogue was the focal point of this show and I just... I can't explain it. You'll have to watch in order to understand what I mean. The music was one of the best points! This show was less about plot and more about invoking feelings in the watcher, and the music really enhanced this point. I especially loved the ending theme (I downloaded it lol). I urge you to watch this show. You won't regret it!

I don't love love love this show, but I don't dislike it either. It was cute, but nothing special. The acting was pretty good, though I felt the romance was somewhat awkward at parts. It was also really predictable. I would recommend this drama to someone who just wants to relax. It's a likable show, but it's not mind blowing. I do like the strong female characters, though. A good show overall.

I'm very iffy about this movie. I liked it - the plot was nice, though exaggerated at parts, it was a little funny, a little tragic, a little romantic - but I can't say it was memorable. However, the lessons taught by the movie will definitely stay with me. "Don't let your clothes define you." When I do remember this movie, I'm sure I'll only have good feelings because I really loved the ending.

The plot, at it's base, was very good. I really loved the "clothes don't matter, it's how you wear them" theme, and I think that the ending tied things up nicely. However, the beginning was rather slow and awkwardly comical, even though I think that was the point that the writers were trying to make. They were making light of Ki Myung's awful experiences, which kind of made me press my lips together even when I wanted to laugh. The relationships between the "good" characters were very admirable, especially between Ki Myung, Kim Nam Jeong and Chang Joo. The antagonists were antagonists 'til the very end. It wasn't groundbreaking, but it was good.

Acting was, of course, wonderful. I mean, Joo Won is my favorite, so my views may be slightly biased. I'm surprised that this movie wasn't better than it was for me, but that probably had more to do with writing and directing than casting. I actually didn't recognize Sulli at first, which was a good thing, since I wasn't a fan of her acting in "To the Beautiful You". Her acting has improved dramatically, and when I realized it was Sulli, I couldn't believe it. I hope she gets some good roles in the future, because I may have disliked her even more because of her meek role in "To the Beautiful You", which wasn't exactly my favorite drama. (I dropped it. I couldn't handle the forced romance and cheesy acting.) Anyway, the acting was a plus.

Music wasn't memorable, and I'm not sure I'll be rewatching this in the future. I may watch parts of it, but not fully. It was much too slow in the beginning, even though I really liked the plot and theme. I would definitely recommend watching this movie, especially on a lazy day~ <3

I'm going to keep this short. It was a terrible drama. The acting was overdramatic, the characters were unrealistic, and it was just... terrible. I couldn't get past the first episode. Maybe it got better, but considering what a difficult time I had just watching the first episode, I highly doubt it. The S and M-like aspect of it was just... weird. I especially disliked the male protagonist. He was just so so bland and boring. I would not recommend this drama. I feel that even a 2 is too high a rating, and I'm somebody who rarely rates anything below a 6.

I watched this movie mainly because of Lee Min Ki and Eugene. I've shipped them since I watched I Really Really Like You. This movie wasn't anything ground breaking. It was just another feel good rom com. It's not memorable (unless you love the actors like I did.) but it's definitely better than some other rom com Korean movies I've seen. The older couple was really cute and the ending was satisfying. Not to mention Eugene and Lee Min Ki's relationship was hottt ;))

Watch it if you just want to relax and not stress about whatever's going on in your life ^^ The sceneries were beautiful, so that's a plus.
