As soon as I started watching School 2017, I loved it and it reminded me a lot of Sassy Go Go....and that's when I looked it up and realized they're written by the same screenwriter!

Both are high school stories that revolve around school corruption, rich parents pressuring their students into attaining perfection, stress, violence, bullying, students with higher grades favored, power, status, etc stitched in with a romance plot both with adorable couples (if you had SLS in Sassy Go Go, then School 2017 might make you feel better since the main male lead reminds me a lot of the second lead in Sassy Go Go) The romance is very sugary/fluffy, but balanced well with the school corruption plot.

(I am definitely looking out for more of this screenwriter's works!)
(tw: suicidal subplot in Sassy Go Go)

Both of these movies have an extremely similar feel and mood to them; they're both depressing movies and moderately bloody (moderate in comparison to even more gruesome movies I mean, if you don't like the sight of blood at all don't watch either). Both revolve around children being raised as killers, but whom rebel against their "parents".

Kim Go Eun and Yeo Jin Goo are both excellent (as are the rest of the casts) but them being able to balance their roles as killers, yet still hold sympathy gets you emotional. They are both dark movies and in most ways predictable yet still thrilling. They mostly feel like the same movie to me, but genders reversed though Hwayi does have more of a deeper storyline.

Reply 1988 is one of my favorite dramas and when I started watching Sunny, I started getting the same vibes and feels I did while watching that drama.

Reply 1988 is a drama while Sunny is a movie, but both occur in a similar time period in the past and evoke nostalgic feelings even if you didn't live through that time period yourself.

The friendship theme is strong and both the drama and movie are slow paced, yet interesting, funny, and realistic.

You'll find yourself laughing, crying, feeling sentimental while connecting to all of the characters!!! :")

Both are fast faced thrillers that involve the back in time element and both offer a bittersweet husband -wife romance!

Obviously the topic matters are very different - one deals with rape/sexual assault trauma and the other a terminal illness, but the main reason I recommend these for each other is because of the heartwarming family theme.

Expect to have some tissue boxes around you and lots of buckets to catch your tears. Both really made me feel bittersweet, emotional, and just warmed my heart extremely.

Hope arguably has a more dramatic and darker undertone while the pace of My Palpitating Life is much more slow paced and relaxed, but I think the family bond is what tore my heart most in both movies.

(I cried so much in Hope, but only teared up in My Palpitating Life because I think the tones are so different but I just loved both movies and after Hope I had been looking for more loving family movies.)

So...I didn't particularly like Deranged, but if you liked Deranged, you will definitely love The Flu; I can't guarantee the reverse if you liked The Flu, you'll like Deranged.

Both films revolve around a spreading epidemic and chaos. So in terms of those aspects I think it's safe to say someone who liked this movie will like The Flu.

The problem is that Deranged was too slow paced, constant unnecessary chaos scenes that added nothing to the plot, and a boring main "hero" and just a forgettable movie.

On the other hand I watched The Flu first and I LOVED it. So I was super excited for Deranged, but it just was a poorer version of The Flu in my opinion.

If you liked Deranged watch The Flu. If you hated Deranged, watch The Flu.

I watched The Flu after Train to Busan because I was craving more zombie/thriller movies. I was reluctant to watch The Flu since it is not about zombies and the trailer did not seem to interesting, but decided to give it a try.

I ended up loving it! Both movies are fast paced thrillers revolving around the spread of a virus infection in Korea. If you enjoyed the intenseness/edge-of-your-seat aspect of Train to Busan, then you will definitely enjoy The Flu! Both movies also possess heart-wrenching scenes and keep your heart racing until the very end.

The Flu also delves deeper into the story of the spread of the virus infection and the attempts to stop it, while Train to Busan focuses more on the survival of the main cast, however, you'll love both!

Both dramas have leads with amazing chemistry between each other, have many cheesy (the good kind) romantic, fluffy moments, and revolve around school life. Sassy Go Go has a darker and more dramatic undertone arguably, but both also focus on mental health, rivalry, heartbreak, and school life. Both are easy and engaging to watch with a perfect balance of number of episodes without getting stretched out. (And also both male leads are just flipping adorable?)

If you loved Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo because of the excessive fluff and cute moments between the two leads and an adorable (boyfriend material) male lead and for the comedic moments, then you'll love Lucky Romance!! They both have rivalry drama, although Lucky Romance is more dramatic and Weightlifting Fairy is more slow paced; the storyline of the two are not similar at all but more so the cute romance and male lead is what I find similar !
