The best out of the three! Everything that you have seen in the previous seasons is nothing compared what is happening in the third! It's a must watch! The plot was geniously developed, would not have expected this after the other two.

Forget about the fact that Detective Kang is not in it, it's not the end of the world, it does not make the drama worse!
The new casts brings a new mood into the whole drama. Before even starting the drama I wasn't especially happy about the cast change but after the first moments and the first episode they grew on me, perfect for the plot that was set for this third season! Ahn Nae Sang was perfect for his role as well and his acting was just amazing! Was blown away! Supporting roles were great as well! Especially the other doctors! By the way, the relationship between the two main characters is hilarious and enjoyable, you just want to see them more on the screen while they argue with each other~ XD

Better watch it because it cannot be compared to the previous ones if you ask me... the ideas that come up are way over what we can handle~ XP

whooho a drama filled with Busan accent and fishes(?) :)

So quite a nice drama actually, nothing really special or over the board stuff (let's say a soft drama)
Actually the plot does remind you of some other dramas because it includes the basic elements (a.k.a amnesia, orphan kid, troublesome past, opposition etc.)
Don't get me wrong now... it is not a melodrama ^^ it's quite amusing drama and enjoyable most of the times (especially when they react or parodies movies, songs,...)
Of course this wouldn't be a drama that you would use in order to dramatize your friend or make him/her a dramatard x)

the cast was great, they did an amazing job with the Busan Accent and also they fit the characters really well
i really like all the casts, you get to like them quite easily (i read that some people did not like the main girl but in my point of view, the production team choose the actress well since we are not talking about a really gorgeous and sexy girl but a mob's daughter, hardworking girl)

Music and Rewatch value are low since the music did not really catch my interest
Rewatch value is low since it's not really a drama that you would want to rewatch 5 times... once is okay but not more

Overall 7... if you want to see something funny and filmed in Busan then this is your stuff :) of course there is romance (^w^)

The movie is great! one of those movies you just cannot miss...
it is quite entertaining since there is funny scenes and characters in it and the plot is excellent as well...
people who liked movies like Ocean's eleven, twelve etc would enjoy this one as well and also who like logical thinking and such
the story develops slowly and it is enjoyable as the lead character is quite interesting

it does not include any romance so those who wish to see that...well it is not in this movie~ :)

I particularly enjoyed this drama, and since the previous review didn't give fair credit to it, I thought that I should write a review :) However, I do think that it might not be to everyone's palette and the best way to decide is to watch it :))

I felt that the drama was light and easy to enjoy in comparison to other secret agent dramas that I have seen! There was no great conspiracy, loads of secrecy, huge amount of fighting scenes, etc etc. I liked that the plot focused on a secret agent who becomes a bodyguard to an actor and still carries out his duties as an agent: it made the story work - of course very unrealistic but which drama isn't xD

I have to say the cast was great! All of the actors fit their characters and made the drama work. I really have to give kuddos to Park HaeJin's acting in this! His actions and facial reactions just brought the drama a kind of humour I really enjoy! And maybe because of this as well that it was nice to watch, and more light hearted than other secret agent dramas.

Of course, I did have a hard time to come in terms with Kim Min Jung's hair - seriously they cut her hair way to short!!

I started this drama because the plot looked promising and I especially like this hidden child/unknown child themes. So as I was watching I felt more and more bored, angry and annoyed. By the end i was hitting my head on the table and flipping tables (?°?°??? ???).
40 episodes was way to long, I mean that they could have easily shorten it down to 16 episodes, it was way to lagging and repetitive.
Half way I stopped counting...
1. the amount of unfairness
2. the amount of times they broke up and get back together
3. the amount of mother-in-law or angry mother fights
4. the unreasonable conflict
5. that every problem is because of one person
6. ETC.

I have watched family dramas this long previously and I known that some parts can be boring or unreasonable but this just reached the top levels... I really wanted to stop after the first 12 episodes but continued as I wanted to know how it finished. I thought it was not worth my time at all.... I mean there were some moments which were cute and romantic, and also thought that was the best part of the drama but there weren't that many which caused my really negative feelings towards this drama.

Basically I was utterly disappointed with it and would certainly not recommend it. The main reason for which I was able to watch till the end might the well chosen cast. I really liked some of the characters so maybe that's why I was able to watch through till the end without dropping it. The music wasn't really catching either nor caught my attention.

...can they be ever reunited?

the question is simple but the answer is heartbreaking, the truth is harder than expected...

moving story about an actual case that never been resolved...the movie is based on a true case which makes the story even more painful to watch in addition the victims were only young and innocent boys

the movie represents well the family bonds between parents and their children, the hope to find the lost ones, the desperate state the parents are in, the opinion of the outside world, etc etc
it also represents well of what hardship this case brought to the different people that are involved in it

the actors did a great job throughout the movie... you could feel the emotions so sincerely and also could imagine the parents' state during that time very well
the characters were well portrayed and the story was well set out

IMPORTANT NOTE: the movie has some fictional scene in it around the ending (don't want to spoil it)
if you are interested about the case you can always google 'frog boys' / or even '1991 Deagu case'
there was another movie made in 1992 as well called 'come back, frog boys'

First of all - cute movie!
the movie is based around the family bonds and relations: the older brother that protects her sister the best way he can through any hardships, the man who protects them as if they were his own, etc.
not only does the movie concentrate around the family but also around friendship, new encounters and as well searching for the meaning in life (in my opinion)

Very nice movie with great acting!! the little girl who plays the sister's role is just amazing..even though she is small and does not have experience in acting...she was able to bring the character to live with the help of the other casts :)

The scenery is just beautiful throughout the movie. The bicycle ride just brings to many different places that enriches the standard of the movie :)

Just to mention the movie is set in the country side meaning that the situation of the families and the life does differ from the city life. It is set in a much poorer area and one might not like the fact that all characters in the movie speak with an accent

I thought this was a really cute romcom. I love the setting of the movie and also all the characters. It really fitted with the story.

The plot was really cute and I loved how they used animation to illustrate some of the more vivid superpower scenes/actions/imagination. It was not overreacted and flowed perfectly.

There were really cute moments throughout the whole movie, and it just showed that this is really a sweet cute high school romcom!!

The use of sound effects and the music was PRICELESS! They kind of used over the top sound effects which really fit into the whole movie.

If you are only just getting into thai movies or you are already a fan of them, this lighthearted romcom is really worth watching! With great cast and great acting, it was really nice to watch!

Great balance between action and comedy! When I decided to watch it, i thought it will be mainly action-all serious stuff- but i was quiet surprised when they started dropping different jokes around. At first I didn't know what to think about it but I quickly realised it was a comedy... haha silly me!

All the actors were great, especially Shin Ha Kyun. I wouldn't have picked a better crazy psycho than him for this plot! If you are a fan of Shin Ha Kyun, you know that he has this little facial expression or gestures that really are his, and through this character it was even more visible which just added to the character. I was surprised by BoA's acting, she did a good job with the though character.

I would recommend this movie if you are interested in martial arts or like action movies packed with fighting scene. All the fighting was really well done and I mean you can see that the main guy really worked out to have similar body muscles as a pro fighter! It has comedy so the movie doesn't get boring from all that fighting!!

I thought this was a pretty cute drama, a quick watch but with a lot of learning.

I thought the story was really well set, even though it was done in a short time, you could really get immersed. At one point I nearly couldn't held back my tears, that's how good I thought it was. I wouldn't say the acting was particularly good, more that the story was really catching.

There are actually a lot of issues that come up in it, not just being on sidedly in love with a straight guy. These issues are relevant everywhere in the world and this drama really reflected ion it.

I thought one major aspect which really made this drama stand out was the friendship!! I don't really want to give away anything but seriously, it was precious!

If you want a nice quick watch, this is the drama for you!

If you have nothing better to do and just want to see hilarious action packed movie, this could be a choice x)

good movie with hilarious scenes!
the movie supposed to be a comedy (meaning that you should be laughing for most of the times) but for me, i did not feel that... maybe due to the fact that the movie was produced in 1999, the humor now has changed in some ways so some scene were not hilarious for me (but for everyone is different)
but for most of the times you could still giggle away :)

The movie is great representation of the society that has let down its people- school that let down/abandoned its student, parents that let down/abandoned their children. Each character has its own unique problem that can be found throughout the society nowadays (and in those times). It's a good representation of what can happen in someone's life.

The plot is quite nice as well.
The characters are well represented and the way they spend their time is hilarious (their actions come out of their character, they act receptively to their character' image) :)

for the first 10 mins of the movie, the acting was really not that captivating and good...really thought they were amateurs not real actors
but later on it really does get better, the acting really does change
throughout the movie you can also see some major stars of nowadays like Kim Suro (mr. Idol, God of study), Lee won jong (vampire prosecutor, wild romance etc etc), park young kyu, etc.

I felt writing this review because I can't even remember how many times I have rewatched this drama, it never gets boring and the topics that come up are so deep that they still prevail in current times.

As you may have guessed from the synopsis, it is a family drama but most importantly this drama focuses on how this family grows through hardships and coming in terms with reality. This drama was a big no-no for many Koreans because it involves homosexuality, SBS had to actually cancel the drama because of the huge criticism.

The drama deals so in depth with the issue looking through the different characters and opinions as if one character represented one side from society, e.g. does who support homosexuality, does who are against it, etc. It contrasts, the traditional societal views with modern views. Additionally, numerous other issues come up such as issues between step parents and step children, in-laws, marriage, birth secrets, love triangles and many more. It really shows what could happen in a family situation. (It is not all seriousness, there is fun times and lovey dovey ones as well ^^)

The actors did a great job throughout the drama and I can't emphasise enough how good it was. I remember watching any other drama that the actors have been in because I got to like them so much during this drama. After a few episode you get really into it.

I really recommend watching this drama and hope you will enjoy it like I did :)

first thought that came to me that it was similar to Da Vinci code, the mystery about an event in history

there were moments that i enjoyed but there were also moments which i felt was lacking (yes boring boring), i felt that the movie did not bring out the true potential of the plot as the ending was just not fully developed and there were confusion as well at some parts, in addition parts of it was unnecessary
one particular aspect that i wished the directors did differently would be seriously the background music, totally weird and unbalanced.. argh

i liked the way that the mystery started out, it actually made me quite interested and thus i watched till the end

the actors were well selected in my opinion, each had a mysterious side, well only Ayase Haruka was typical to her characters she plays normally (no mystery really and kinda like her character in Hotaru no hikari ^^)

If you liked Da Vinci code, you might enjoy this ones as well though it's not as dynamic and attractive in a way as Da Vinci was

if you are bored, you have nothing worth doing and just want to watch something because you don't have any will to do anything else, then this could be a choice...

the characters in the movie are quite good and can be laughed at most of the times.. the interactions between the two main characters are just perfect and will make you want to watch it till the end (in the first minutes I wasn't really captivated by the characters and thought it wasn't worth watching but then i got hooked on it, and found it quite amusing xD)
the plot is quite nice as well (nothing of a big story, mostly simple and enjoyable), just some imperfections of the production throughout the movie but it can be ignored :)

the movie is quite hilarious in some ways- mostly comedy, including some fighting scene
some of the scenes reminds me of overdone comedy that you can see in japanese live actions and taiwanese dramas

but apart from that i still laughed and giggled away~ if you like period drama and want to laugh a bit then watch this~ XD

the story is about the typical cop(who has some mental breakdown through the movie...it was weird, his character was, sometimes he went senile...*.*) chasing with enthusiasm after the bad guy, both character knowing how the other's mind works

Overall the movie was quite interesting and enjoyable. It reminded me of the typical cop and robber movies but there were some twists and turns that i would have not expected, but some parts of the plot you could easily guess
The ending was quite a surprise as well in some ways (there were hints about what would happen but the overall ending i would not have guessed)

To sum it up- good movie, with great acting (and if you are a fan of Cha Seung won, u will enjoy it even more i guess XP), the music wasn't bad it just that it did not really catch my attention (not that powerful, i would say)
