Light hearted, fun, cute, sweet and cheesy this drama made me smile a lot. I loved the family, they were lovable and funny and the story was filled with cute/sweet scenes.

Of course, like a lot of Asian action/romance dramas I've watched there was a lot of overly exaggerated "gotta be cool" fight scenes that came off almost silly and a lot of situations and problems could have been solved to easily or weren't logical so it made it a bit dumb in somethings.

Also the feelings didn't always touch you the way I think they were supposed to which would have made the re-watch value for me higher, but I smiled so much through this drama I didn't mind the not so great parts. I just smiled away through whole scenes, not just funny bits but the sweet, cute, bring a tear to your eye cause I wish that would happen to me though it's cheesy as hell, kinda smiling.

Also, there was trust and understanding for the most part between the leads, though, as usual, there are communication issues, but it was overall very likeable, fun, cute and super sweet.

Not high on physical romance, lots of hugging but not so much kissing or set you on fire type stuff but still very romantic and sweet, also I liked that the couple were together as a couple before the end of the drama. The writer did do a good job of keeping the couple together while trying to overcome outside problems.

I wasn't sure about watching a period drama but I loved this so much I bought the series. I am laughing right now thinking about some of the most awesome scenes. I am a happy ending girl but I also have to enjoy the story that gets you there as well and I really did with this. I smiled stupidly in front of the computer screen so many times, I laughed out loud, I sat on the edge of my seat calling out stupid, ahh and the cuteness, of course the cute guys helped also. It's not just the lead guy and gal but the other two main guys are so awesome. I loved them almost more then Lee Sun-joon and Kim Yoon-hee. Though I really didn't think that Lee Sun-joon was as cute as the other guys, he really starts to grow on you as the show progresses and though I loved the character Gu Yong-ha it was totally the Moon-Jae-shin character that stole my heart and probably half the show and omg they all had great chemistry. I liked that this was light enough not to stress me out or make me want to kill myself. It was addictive enough to stay up most of the night because I couldn't not watch just one more episode. I finished it in two days and have re-watched it with my mother who loved it and because it has some action in it my brother started getting into it so now he is watching it.

At first I wasn't sure I could even finish the first episode is was outrageously stupid but I kept watching and it kept getting better by episode 5 I loved it. All the great ones are after 4 in my opinion. It's still outrageous but I really like it. You can really tell the guys are enamored with her, even Kyoya. It's cute. There are a lot of cute scenes and it looks like Haruhi is starting a like Tammki. Though a bit different then the anime and they have changed a few things, added and removed,it's still really cute. I am still excited about the next episode 9 when they go on vacation. I'm expecting it to be really cute. I own the anime series and have decided when this comes out I will buy it also.

Tak is great in this movie. It has an odd surreal kinda feel to it. It\''\''s visually stimulating and the story is very intriguing. I really thought this was based on a managa or anime. I always hoped for a sequel but if one came out I don\''\''t know about it. Lots of action, hot guy, fantasy past meets future, humor and a touch of romance. I really did like this. Also another movie I own.

I really liked this show though I put it on hold for a bit before picking it back up and then I had to re watch it wondering why I put it on hold to begin with. There was a lot cute and funny moments and there were laugh out loud moments which I don't get much of so they are precious to me. I thought the lead guy was a total dork at first thinking "really, this is the guy that gets the girl?" but he totally grows on you and is actually very cute and jae joong was super cute his crooked smile is too much. Also, I swear I loved the interaction between the two guys more then the guys and the girl it was too funny and cute when they fought with each other because they were both so kiddish and girly about it but it was just so cute and funny. I wouldn't mind owning this series. It wasn't the typical drama I was used to seeing and it was pretty refreshing for me. There were a lot of likeable characters also, including Ice Cream, who turned out pretty cool and I only really hated the mothers but I liked that the lead girl never backed down with them which always threw the mothers for a loop, it was great. I also loved the grandmother. I've seen her in many shows and she is great.

This was a really cute movie. I've watched and liked Baby and Me with Jang Geun Suk but Usagi Drop was much better in my opinion. It was sweet and cute and I smiled a lot. I liked Matsuyama Kenichi and the little girl was so cute. I will have to watch the anime now and see if that is as likable as this movie was.

This wasn't a bad movie at all though it wasn't my type. Though it was a comedy there was a lot of violence vocalized and a lot of vulgarity in the songs but at the same time I was enjoying the music and movie was pretty good. Matsuyama Kenichi played Krauser so well, he was totally awesome in Krauser form but his nerdy form was just to much, the way he ran and walked omg. It was actually funny in some spots though I never broke out laughing I did smile most of the movie. Matsuyama is a very talented person to be able to play these dual characters so well and Krauser was funny and cool when dealing with his brother and the parents were so funny. Though this wasn't my typical kind of movie I like it, however I wouldn't suggest it to anyone easily offended.

I really liked this I've seen the anime and this I liked better in some ways. I was also happy Sunako doesn't become a chibi in this, thank god. There was also more of the romance aspect to the live action. I really didn't think the guys were as cute as any of them should have been but I still loved Kyohei and Sunako, so cute! It has B grade effects but that was very easy for me to over look as most anime turned live action tend to to lack in the graphics department anyway. I will buy the series if I can every find it in region 1 dvd. The ending was good but I could have done without the last 10 seconds but it was good and better then the anime ending as far as I'm concerned. It's a fun, light hearted, romantic, comedy I've watched several times now.

First of all this is not a typical "why don't they kiss more" kiddy story...omg, it is for adults only. I was shocked as this was the second kdrama movie I watched that was meant for the big kids. On saying that I liked it and I loved the song also. Ji Sung, who was also in Protect the Boss, did a great job though I blushed a time or two. The romance was great and the story was good. The movie was hard to find though and the one I did find some of the translations were just terrible but they got better as the movie progressed. Over all I liked the movie.

Honestly I personally enjoyed this version better than the other versions. Choi Minho was too cute and I thought he looked familiar but I totally didn't realize he was from the group Shinee which I like a lot. I thought there were a lot of really cute/sweet scenes and the attraction between the two/three leads was very evident. Kang Tae Joon (Choi Minho) was so cute when he got flustered and was, I thought, a surprisingly good actor. The other boy lead Cha Eun Gyeo was way cute too and I also enjoyed his role. Though there were parts that did fall a little flat and areas where I thought more detail should have been added, over all I enjoyed all of it and I wasn't ever really bored with it at all. I thought it was a bit more serious then the Japanese or Taiwanese versions with not quite as much silliness though it still had its share. Also, it was harder to tell some of the other side characters apart in the Kversion where in the other versions especially the Japanese version the side characters were much more distinctive in their character and appearance, they just kind of got lost in this one. Also, it does tend to stay focused for the most part on the three main characters where the other versions encompassed the side characters more but that is probably what kept me interested as I don't always like to run off on a tangent with side characters to often.

It was cute and sweet and had a lot of great moments. The score would likely be higher but in the last several episodes it started to drag as the writes had to draw out the 22 episodes by putting unnecessary and useless stuff in. The ending could have been more complete but it ended well and overall the feeling was good throughout the series. Dal Ja charcter was beautifully classic in look and Tae Bong was so cute though sometimes you really didn't know what he was thinking expression wise.

I love it. I own it. I've watched it many times. I really don't know that I need to same more but I will. I loved the hot and spicy Jang Geun Suk and his acting was great. The series was so freakin funny, and some parts were, for me laugh out loud funny and that doesn't happen often. I also sat through many episodes with a stupid grin on my face. There were also cute moments in every episode and many sweet moments. The very cute guy characters relationship with Go Mi Num was awesome. I also loved, loved the loyalty in this. I just loved all the guys characters they were great and they fit the guys well. Till this day Lee Hong Ki is known to me as Jeremy and Jang Geun Suk I call him Hot and Spicy. Shinwoo is Shinwoo but he was a beautiful character. Every character was different and stood out to really make this a great series.

This was a really cute movie. The mix of comedy, romance and horror was well done. The ghost chick that was haunting everyone totally freaked me out a few times. It was like the grudge and Ringo freaky when she came out. I was totally on the edge of my seat because of her. The romance was also good and the couple were just really cute together and totally matched up well and the ending was great.

Putting aside the fact that like many Japanese action character series Yokai Ningen Bem also had the over the top B grade costumes and somewhat low special effects the show was ok. The effects themselves were not really bad but the costumes were about B grade at best however the series didn't require a lot of either and the jumping and leaping across roof tops and up walls and such was pretty cool and a few of the transformation scenes weren't too bad. However, with every change into monster form I wondered where the heck they found the exact same clothes they just ripped apart to put back on.
As for acting it was ok for the most part. It was pretty typically of that type of show. In my opinion Kame has never been the most fantastic actor but he's not bad and seems to always put his all into it and his emotions are always great in everything I have seen him in but what Kame does best is look good and you could have totally seen him fit right into a bishonen manga or anime he was so like a beautiful god with is soft features and some scenes bordered on OH MY GOD I CAN ALMOST SEE HIS... which is why I watched it to begin with.
As for the story, I thought the idea of humanities struggle to find the good in themselves was all well and good but it got very repetitive and old very fast. For me, the main reason I watched it was for Kame and on thinking about it, if he had not been in it I don't think I would have even picked it up to watch but Kame was in it and the eye candy was more than enough for me to finish the series so I don't feel like a wasted time watching it. So If you like Kame then yeah if not the Bem character was still cool and to me the best Belo and Bela where ok. I loved the Detective and his family as well as the other side family so the characters were still pretty good so maybe still worth watching.

I love Jang Geun Suk but I just wasn't into his character in this one. I love it when he plays hot and spicy much more then his cute and silly. He was a little to silly in some of the scenes for my taste but it was to be expected as it is a silly comedy. It also seemed to be focused on JGS dancing and singing. Though I wasn't overly impressed with the dancing, I very much love his voice. There were moments that were very cute though and my favorite part was the scenes at the end showing them together as a couple which was super cute. As a movie it obviously couldn't build on the story the way a series does but it progressed ok. I'm not sorry I watched it but I doubt I'll watch it again.
