I went into this show with no expectations, didn’t even read the description based on recommendation and honestly this show surprised the hell out of me. I was in love with it from start to finish and could not stop watching. The concept in so unique and bring new life and energy to style of drama that I feel has gotten stale and overdone recently. The direction and the turn the story takes genuinely surprised me and I could not wait to see where it went. Yes, there are aspects of this show to nitpick the overacting in some parts can be annoying for some. However, like any amazing show I was so engrossed with the story and in love with the characters I didn’t care about the nitpick flaws. You feel such empathy with these characters that you just can’t help but want them to succeed and live free lives. This is one of the stand out drama’s of 2019 and a new favorite of mine.

If you have ever wanted to see YG artists on an episode of the office then you'll like this show.

This show has a very good premise and seeing YG artists in these outlandish situations can be really funny.

Overall I enjoyed the acting but you can tell that some of the cast is far more experienced than others especially with the idols. It is very clear that some of these idols are not actors. Seungri is the stand out of this show and I found that his performance was the most compelling.
However my biggest issue with the show was the comedy. This show is entirely focused on comedy and for me some of the jokes just didn't land.

This show was a amazing surprise. The plot was incredible and so layered. It's an amazing balance of drama, tragedy, mystery, and comedy, it even manages to handle the crime plots extremely well. It keeps the tension and suspense high but also knows when to bring in a comedic element or scene. The character are all dynamic and fully realized. All of them are different and each bring a different perceptive to this story. Also they are 3 dimensional and don't rely solely on cookie cutter characterization. All the character go on their own journey throughout the show and grow and change in their own way. The adults were unsurprisingly great but I also want to highlight the actors who played the teen roles they really did a great job bring these characters to life and making them feel believable and like real teens. Overall, it's a 10/10 for me It kept me interested and engaged the whole time. It's the perfect balance of trilling and high tension but knows when to slow down and let the audience breath. I truly amazing show that I think people will remember for years to come.

So I hated this show, the only positive thing I have to say about it is that it's short if it was longer I would have dropped it. The female lead destroys this show she is almost unbearable to watch. She has the backbone of a jellyfish and the personality of a rock. She is the definition of a damsel in distress always needs a big strong man to come save her from other guys who are trying to hit on her. The Male lead isn't much better same lack of personality. They have no chemistry and when there relationship goes to the "mature" parts they look like two robots who don't understand how human mating works but are trying it out. Their relationship has no development and this drama really doesn't even have a story. It's just girls get grabbed/hit on by guy the male lead saves her happy ending. Rinse and repeat till the end

This show had a a lot of hype behind it and I was excited. However, maybe it was over-hyped and I was a little underwhelmed. The concept is great and right up my alley. At hotel who's clientele is ghosts sounds like it would make for super interesting story lines. The cast does a great job IU is the highlight. She embodies this women who has been trapped so well and her story line is the best part of the show. Though the other ghost staff is also great. The set design of the hotel may be my favorite part of this show it is just gorgeous I could just watch the scenes in the hotel on mute. What really lets this show down is the episodic ghost story lines. The show choices to divide each episode between the main story and the ghost of week story and in those is were the show falls flat for me. I just didn't are about these ghosts the characters were trying to help. Also the episodes were a bit to long I feel like they could have cut some unnecessary parts and made an solid 60 minute show rather then 80-90 minutes that drag.

I really enjoyed this show from start to finish and can see why so many people have raved about it. While the show has a lot of drama tropes and story lines that have been done before but it does them in the best way possible and it never feels forced or out of place. The two main leads and an incredible chemistry and there relationship develops in a way that makes me what to see them be together the whole way through. A big plus for me was the main male lead Shangyan, many times in shows like this kind of character is cold and really has no other character traits until the main female lead changes him. This show took this in a different direction, yes shanyan is cold in the beginning but even from the first episode you see these moment of warmth and I always prefers characters like this. Other benefits are that there was no forced love triangle. This last point is an angle I'm glad the show went with, their really is no villain in this show. All the characters are just people living there lives no one is being malicious. It just people growing and learning more about themselves and each other without some cartoon character coming in and trying to destroy them . Overall, this has been the best romance of the year in my opinion and just an all around joy to watch

This is the first of the History series that I have watched and now I want to watch more. Usually the teacher student relationship isn't my thing but this show is the exception and I think the way they handled the relationship was really well done. I adore just how domestic this couple is and they family dynamic that they have with Yoyo. They tackle real life issues and the realities of this type of relationship. Also I'm always into bi representation and I like that this isn't about a man being traumatized and heartbroken from his ex wife and then turning gay but it's man who got divorced from his wife and just so happened to now fall in love with another man. Also how they handled the ex-wife was perfection. The acting was good they only criticism i have is that some of the crying scenes weren't great and kind of looked like the actors were more laughing as apposed to crying.

This show is one of the biggest waste of potential I have ever seen. The concept for this show is so unique and interesting, it could be taken in so many interesting direction. However, this show decides to tell the same cookie cutter love triangle story line, with some of the most unlikable characters I have ever seen in drama's. Now I've watched shows with unlikable characters, I've watched show with stupid characters but never have I watched a show where all three of the main leads are unlikable and stupid at the same time. All of them make stupid selfish choices and when they come to regret them they make no effect to fix anything and wallow in their own self pity. Also that ending wasn't and ending nothing ended in the story there was no closer therefore it can't even be called an ending. It was a cliffhanger for the second season however, with these character's I'm not sure if I'll waste my time with the second season

When reading the description of this show it looked right up my alley. I tend to like these kinds of shows and in the beginning this show really had me. I story was interesting and the actors pull it off really well. Out two leads actually have really good chemistry I found.

****SPOILERS***SPOILERS***** SPOILERS****


The biggest problem with this show is that fact that that the male lead made the female lead believe she had cancer when she really didn't. I know that all these shows have to have some kind of liar reveal but this one is one of the worst. For some reason this one rubbed me the wrong way making her believe she was sick just to get her to fake marry you that is really f'ed up. Luckily the show doesn't spend a lot of time on it, she is mad about it fro like an episode and a half, then gets over it and they are back together but when ever I think about this lie I just start to like the main male lead less and the show as a whole less. If you can get over this lie then the show is good but this lie is the deal breaker also understandable and just stir clear of this show.

I love this show. It became one of my favorite drama from the first moment i watched it and I believe I have re-watched it at least 3 or 4 times since then and I usually don't re watch things.

For a drama to be a 10 for me it isn't that it's perfect no media is perfect. It's how engrossed I was in the story that I didn't notice or care about the faults. And this show just had me from the get go. The story was extremely charming and the relationship of both the main leads and the side characters were well developed and made me really route for them.
The acting was great they got really amazing actors for all the characters.
This show has one of my favorite OST's of all time even if you have no interest in the show I would highly recommend the OST.

This show feels like a half baked idea for a fanfic made by people who wanted more of the Mean/Plan couple but couldn't wait for LBC 2. I know these actors are good and know what they are doing I've seen them do better in so many other show. However, there is only so much you can do with the subpar nothingness that is this material. This show is short but even for a show that is only about an hour long nothing happened and it felt like the waste of hour. If you want more of this couple just watch reminders or a LBC compilation on youtube it'll be a better use of your time.

This is by far the best BL drama I've ever seen and has a place in my heart as one of my most favorite drama's I've ever seen. I feel in love with everything about this show. I adore the story and the grow each of the characters go through. Type has he's big arch however, I like that Tharn has his own flaws and thing he has to work through. This had become one of my favorite couples in any drama I have ever watched, I feel completely in love with them. All the side characters are mainly there to serve to the main couples narrative and I think that choice worked for this series to many subplots would have taken to much of the already limited time away from the main couple and I feel that in this series I would have been to the shows detriment. Lastly not to spoil anything the villain was so well handled and that story line had me at the edge of my seat. The casting was phenomenal. You can feel the chemistry between Mew and Gulf and I would love for them to do more together. The acting in the last two episodes of this show from them had me literally crying. All the characters that were recast from LBC were phenomenal and brought something different to the roles while still feeling like the same characters from LBC.
However, It must be said that this show tackles some very serious topics and while I think it was well done I can see how some could be triggered by it and have different opinions and that is completely understandable.
Overall this is now one of if not my favorite BL of all time. Would I rewatch it Absolutely!!! I'm already planning to multiple times. I cannot recommend this show enough.

This series warmed my heart. A lot of BL is very slimier and falls into cliches and in a way kind of blur together. This one stood out for me. The characters and the acting were very well done, all the actors I found were well cast and fit their roles quite well. Ae and Pete had one of the most healthy and sweet relationships I have ever seen in a BL show. There story was simple and which I found really refreshing. The obstacles in there relationship weren't there big things that cause major issues but rather the every day issues that a couple like them would face, and they handle them well and like a realistic couple with good communication skills which is a something I would like to see more of in drama. The side couples in this show are also a highlight. Not to spoil but I am so excited for season 2 of this show and to see more of tincan's relationship. Overall, a really fun and cute show that I can see myself re-watching in the near future

This show is super fun and cartoonishly silly at least for the first half. While not all the jokes landed, I did laugh at parts. However, the story for the first half didn't really interest me and seemed just like a vehicle for more jokes. In the second half of the show the story picks up and becomes more plot focused however this came at the expense of the humor which is this shows strong point. This show does not work as a serious fantasy drama, while the actors try it just doesn't come together and feels forced. It was also a total tonal shift to just cut out also all the comedy and just be a straight up drama in the second half. I should have kept the same tone it had in the first half while the comedy wasn't amazing it would have made the overall show a more enjoyable experience.

This show was an absolute delight to watch. The characters and the story took me on am emotional roller coaster and I just couldn't wait to see where it would lead. The story was well done. The first 6 episodes just left me devastated and emotionally exhausted, but I couldn't stop watching and I just wanted to know were the story would go. The characters and the actors were toe absolute standouts from this show. Off and Gun's chemistry is out of this world and just seeing there relationship dynamics change and evolve over the series was wonderful to watch. Gun especially had these crying scenes that just destroyed me. The side character were also a delight, I was as invested in their stories I was with the main leads. I especially liked the direction they took Bone's story line and how that resolved in the end, I thought it was a really good ending for that story arc. This show made me fall in love with Earth and I need to see him as the lead of a drama. The story is simple and sweet but sometimes those smaller scale stories can really tap into emotions and that's what this show did for me.
