Based on the ratings and the fact that I didn't see too many people saying great things about this, I assumed this one was going to be not very good.

I'm glad that I ignored all that, because this one is amazing. In the beginning it was a little rough since it seems to be an older drama, but then it picked up quick and I loved every episode.

The main relationship for this one is so sweet to watch. He is super quick tempered and yells a lot, but he does care and shows it regularly towards the later half of the drama.

The Female Lead is now one of me favorite actresses. After watching her in The Greatest Love, this has cemented that opinion for sure. She is really great, and absolutely adorable. She is really good at making it seem like she loves this man, and is so over flowing with giddyness that it shines through.

There were some rough spots, but mainly in the beginning, and after a couple episodes, it really startes getting great.

I highly recommend this drama.

I went into this one very interested. The thought that the main characters can see people's lifespans is nothing new, but always an interesting concept to me. As I watched I found meself wondering what was going to happen next because this drama is pretty self aware.

It shines a light on the tropes very commonly found in dramas. I'm not saying they don't do the common tropes, but the world seems to be set in a world like ours were dramas exist.

The concept of the clocks and how they factor into the story kept me very interested while I grew to love and adore these characters. Everyone in this, for the most part, draws you into their own little story. Whether it be the main leads or side characters. Everyone has a little story arc that really makes you see the growth they hold.

I've heard people complain about the story and especially the ending, but I personally really liked all of it. I found the characters very emotionally driven, and I found meself sympathizing with them very frequently.

I would highly recommend this drama.

This one I really enjoyed, as it drew me in with it's characters and story. Going into this one I did not know a single thing about any of the actors or story, but it kept my attention anyway.

The Female Lead was so cute, like impossibly cute. Everytime she would smile, I couldn't help but be drawn in. She could easily seduce anyone with her cuteness. The Male lead was pretty good as well, I found him enjoyable to watch and believable.

The story really kept me guessing, as characters acted in a way I didn't expect but, it was believable at the same time. I would call something about to happen, but then it didn't. Whether that's good or bad, who knows.

The only downsides to this drama that kept it from getting a better score are two things.

1. The romance is very lacking. While there are snippits towards the second half of the male lead gaining feelings. It isn't towards the end where things actually progress which is very annoying.

2. The second downside was that the ending was really rushed. A lot of storylines where just finished in a very quick montagey way in the last episode. While I appreciate finishing loose ends, I feel like it detracts from the impact of the storylines.

Overall this was a really great drama, but if you are only looking for a really good romance to swoon over, this is not it.

So I just finished this last night, and it crept up on me because I didn't know there were only 12 episodes. That isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I just wasn't expecting it to end and it just did.

I loved this drama though, pretty much everything about it was great. I loved the Female Lead in this, she was so adorable and beautiful that I couldn't help but fall for her. The grandmas were awesome, especially the much older one, they really felt like their characters .

The Male lead was cool, I never really have much to say on the male actors because I have no interest in them outside their ability to play a character, and this one I feel really nailed it.

The romance was great, it started early enough and I was wondering what was going to break them up (usually the case when the couple gets together relatively early). I usually hate that part because of how annoying it is to me that the romance is essentially being put on hold, but this is a problem with kdramas in general and not this one in particular.

The only thing I really have to complain about was the very confusing rules when it came to the powers of the witches. This is also why I had to use spoilers in this review.

So according to the show, if someone finds out about your powers you lose them? In the beginning they make it seem like if anybody finds out they are a witch then they lose their powers, and this is shown by the female lead drunkingly telling the male lead that she is a witch, resulting in her losing her powers.

This is fine, but there are instances like when the other restaurant owner sees them performing magic and yet all they do is erase his memory and everything is fine.

Or like when the male lead finds out she does magic again later after his memory was erased , or all the people the female lead used magic on growing up.

I would pin this to it's because they didn't think she was a witch, just weird, but some even accuse her of being a witch.

Maybe the rule is that you have to tell them you are a witch, but then there would literally never be a problem because you could just tell people that you are magic, or a goddess, or a spirit or some shit.

Idk, I loved this drama but the confusing rules about what will make them lose their powers really annoyed me at the end.

I highly recommend this drama.

This drama was kind of like pasta for me. I chose it at random after reading the summary. I had no expectations going into this one as I didn't know any of the actors or actresses before hand. So I went into this one completely blind.

I really loved this to be honest, I thought all the characters were pretty great and the main romance was awesome. I really loved how bad ass the lead woman was, and how she helped the lead male through his problems.

The only problem I had with this drama was that the bad guys throughout seemed to always be shown like they didn't do anything wrong or should be forgiven. I didn't fully understand that mentality as the main antagonist would do something shady, then people would act like it was ok and the one affected was over reacting, and then they would do something shady again, and repeat.

I feel like this drama tried too hard to have its cake and eat it too. Have people cause problems but then the ones affected where blamed for getting angry. Seemed very odd to me.

With that said, this drama was really enjoyable to watch and I really loved the lead female. She was great.

I highly recommend this drama.

After watching this one, I had a hard time coming up with a rating for it. I was debating back and forth between an 8.5 or a 9. As you know if you have read me reviews, I'm pretty easy to please when it comes to entertainment, so that leads to me giving high ratings to pretty much everything.

The reason I had trouble for this one was because I felt like overall it was more of an 8.5 to me than the 9 I ended up giving it. So why did I give it a 9 instead?

Well I really like the characters in this one. Even though I never cried, or got super excited watching this one, I felt for the characters. THe main actress is really great, and her assistant writer friend was absolutely adorable. Every character felt like their own person.

While I felt like the drama could of been much shorter, they could of easily cut out at least 10 episodes, I don't feel like it being this long was too much of a detriment to it. I don't mind the longer than average run length because I enjoyed seeing the characters.

There are some things I did not enjoy very much about this though. I felt like there were a couple times where the "drama" that had happened was forced, and that if these were real people than it would of gotten solved immediately.

Also, something I noticed in this drama that made me realize something about Kdramas drove me crazy. Why does no one ever leave a voice mail? This entire drama, there were a lot of missed phone calls, but I believe there was only 1 time where someone actually left a voicemail instead of just hanging up and assuming the worst. Seriously, do phones work differently in korea and leaving a voicemail is not common?

Anyway, overall I feel like this drama was worth the watch. I enjoyed it, and got to see Seo Hyun Jin in another role.

I recommend this drama

Going into this one I really didn't have any expectations. I assumed I would enjoy it since I'm mostly easy to please when it comes to entertainment, but I never expected it to be this good.

Everything about this from the characters to story is amazing.

The character Doo Chil Seong is probably one of me favorite characters in entertainment. Everything about him was awesome. From the way he fights, to the way he conducts himself in high pressure situations. That's not to say the other characters weren't great either. The main romance was phenomenal, and I really felt like they loved each other towards the end.

Lets not forget about the other romance here though, the amazing Bromance. The friendship that gets established by the male leads is seriously heartwarming, and honestly made me envious.

The only downside is that the beginning is very very slow. I really havent ever felt bored watching a drama before, but the beginning of this one really made me consider dropping a drama for the first time. After the slow build the middle and end is so great, it more than makes up for it.

Also there are so many characters in this that the beginning felt very confusing for me, trying to learn who everyone was. There were times when the scene was focusing on someone, and I had no idea who they were, but had apparently been shown them before.

If you love heartwarming Romance and a strong Bromance with some cool fight scenes, and awesome food, then this drama is for you.

I highly recommend this drama

This is one of the dramas that get recommended all the time. When searching for great romance dramas, those lists usually include this one somewhere. There is good reason for that in me opinion.

Everything about this show was superb in me opinion. The story was very interesting and fresh. While someone acting like a robot isn't exactly a new story, the way they went about it was pretty interesting. I found meself really invested in the characters. Starting off only liking a few and finding a couple very annoying or hating them. Then they slowly started progressing and changing throughout the story, and you find that not all the characters are so bad. They are only human and everyone has their own circumstances.

I thought I wasn't going to be too fond of this story, but the thought of the human allergy really intrigued me, so I decided to give it a shot, and boy am I glad I did. I cried a lot watching this drama. When the characters were sad, I was sad, when they were happy, I felt happy for them. I feel this drama does a good job making the characters real.

I would highly recommend this drama to anyone who likes romance.

Likes:
- Characters and relationships were great and lovable. Easy to care about the characters, and get invested.
- The music really hits you hard at the emotional parts of the series.
- Cinematography is mesmerizing and shot well. Everything is framed great, allowing you to enter their world.
- Jan Di and Ga Eul are both adorable and beautiful throughout.

Dislikes
- Story is a bit stretched. With things happening and not being addressed until and episode or two later.
- Woo Bin wasn't very fleshed out as a character. I wanted to see more of him than what we got.
- Although the music was awesome, the overuse of the main theme got a bit annoying by the end.
- The ridiculous ending arc was unnecessary and did nothing other than make the series a couple episodes longer.

When I first went to watch this one, I was a little hesitant. I saw all these people talking about how well it portrays mental illness and the such. I figured I probably wouldn't like it because it would be too sad and depressing.

I'm glad I decided to give this a chance anyway, because it is really amazing.

This is the third drama I've seen where Gong Hyo Jin was the female lead, and I was really surprised. The other two dramas I've seen her in were Pasta and The Greatest Love. Her characters in those were so different than in this one and it was nice to see. She is really a great actress, and I feel she really brought her A game here as well.

The male lead was played by Jo In Sung, this is the first time for me to see him act and at first I wasn't a huge fan, but slowly came around as the drama progressed. He did a pretty great job.

The story and characters are really well done, and this might be one of the only dramas I've seen where everyone kind of felt like real people. People with faults and strengths that seems more real than usual. I really like how this drama's pacing had the viewer realize what was going on first, then the other characters, and then finally the main person. It really kept you in anticipation since you found out what was going on first through clues. Then the focus of the drama isn't just a love story anymore, it's watching these characters slowly realize what you found out. Then it's watching these characters deal with it in their own personal ways.

This one right here is definitely going to be a classic down the road. Where people with look back fondly at this and say how great it was.

This drama was amazing and I highly recommend this drama.

This is one of those fabled Hong Sister's dramas. I didn't know if I was going to enjoy this because the male lead looked weird to me. He kind of has this look like he would be extremely arrogant and an asshole. While that is the case in the drama, it's not nearly as bad after awhile when the feeling start being developed by both sides.

The female lead Gong Hyo Jin is absolutely adorable in this. In the beginning I didn't see her as anything too special, but as the drama went on, her beauty really shines through and became clear. I don't know what it is, but she is very beautiful to me now, and not many could match up against her in my opinion.

The romance has a slow build, I got pretty frustrated at a certain part, and almost took a break from it, but stuck around and I'm glad I did. Other than that one section, this drama is really great. The beginning were they grow feelings for each other, and the end were their love is out and open with each other is super heartwarming.

Also the main song in this, "Thump Thump" is really amazing. I am addicted to it, and plan on adding it to me playlist to listen to more often.

This drama really does deserve the high praise it gets. It's pretty great.

I highly recommend this drama.

This is another one of those dramas that are always on the recommended lists. After watching it, I can see why. It has a lot of good qualities to it.

The characters were all pretty likable, and mostly acted in none stupid ways. When someone made a dumb decision, I could at least see it from their perspective and understand how they would of come to that conclusion.

I found the main romance to be very delightful. It took awhile, but once they started showing their feelings too each other, it was very heartwarming.

The main problem I had with this drama though, that stopped it from being a 9.5 or even a 10 from me, is that it did a terrible job letting the viewer know when the scene they were watching was a flashback or present day. The timeline in this drama moves so erratically that when a scene changes I always expect it to be like the next day or later that day, but then realizing sometimes that it was something that happened over a year ago. The opposite happened sometimes as well. A scene change and I think they are in the past because the characters are wearing something different or they are talking about something that was never shown, only to find out it was still present day.

I really enjoyed this drama and can understand completely why it is recommended so much.

I highly recommend this drama.

Everyone knows that feeling when they find a work of entertainment perfect. Whether it be a video game, a book, or movie. Sometimes you find something that roots in your heart and makes you believe that it was made for you.

While I have not been watching kdramas for long, this one was one of the few that turned out like that for me. I fell in love with this one, very easily. I was captivated from the beginning and it kept me there the whole time.

Watching this drama, I absolutely fell in love with Jun Ji Hyun's character. At first she is kind of bitchy and annoying, but then you really get to know her as the story progresses. As the story progressed, I found a smile on me face every time she was on the screen.

This was done by the phenomenal acting in this drama. Everyone killed their performance, so I was really pulled in the whole time. I found meself rooting for the leads, booing the villains, and most of all crying when I felt the hurt of the characters.

I'm truly grateful that I got to watch something so beautiful in me lifetime.

I highly recommend this drama.

Everything about this drama captivated me. From the story to the characters. This drama did a very good job expressing the complex emotions of outward beauty that run our species. Everything about it was really well done.

The main leads were phenomenal. Every second the actress playing Mi Rae was on the screen, me heart melted. She was perfect for this role. Her whole appearance shouts sexy, but her character is not that. She is a shy, adorable girl. This alone is a great way to express one of the major themes of the drama, that appearances aren't always related to who that person is.

It's essentially taking the theme of Frankenstein, but adding a new twist to it. Instead of the monster being killed, what would of happened if he suddenly became beautiful? He would be the same person on the inside, but no longer shunned. How would that play out?

This drama is one of me top 3 favorite dramas right now. I still randomly think about it to this day.

I highly recommend this drama.
