There is a reason why this movie has such high ratings. It's not just a movie but a piece of art that seriously touches you deep within.

The premises is simple - an intellectually disabled father is found guilty for a murder that he didn't commit and throughout it all his daughter, Ye Seung stuck by him. He is sentence to prison and placed in Cell no. 7 with inmates. He is treated badly at first because of the fact that he was charged with the murder and rape of a child. Though as the story progresses people begin to realise that a guy like this couldn't have possibly done something atrocious as that!

What I see and feel in this movies is just love in the purest kind. Their father and daughter bond was for me the driving force of the story.
There were times when I felt so much anger for the injustice.
Times when I laughed my ass off because it was so damn hilarious!
Times when I cried my heart out because of the beauty of the story, the characters and the unbelievably heart warming relationship.

My sister and I watched it together and we literally used up the entire box of tissue! I recommend everyone to watch it because it is just such an amazing story and the feels are OVER THE ROOF!

One of my absolute favourite drama ever. The romance between the two leads is what makes it works and you mix it in with great acting BANG! U got yourself a drama that you enjoy and would watch again.

Min Ki is so HOT in here! He is such a gentleman I loved how he was caring toward her and changed her into a better person. Did i tell you his eyes are gorgeous!

Chae Rim one of my favourite female actress, she blew me out of my seat.



A must watch drama that you will never regret ever watching!

*Ladies and gentlemen please be warned that you need a tissue box near you when you watch this movie. It is a necessity. And also prepare to look like a mess. *

Story:
You don't understand how amazing this movie is. To people who have viewed others who went to jail with disgust or contempt. Young lady/man you better go and watch this. It will change your thoughts/feelings on this matter. The theme of this movie is not a light one. But the director made it work. A woman who is convicted of manslaughter for accidently killing her abusive husband. Gives birth in jail and chooses to raise her baby boy, Min Woo. But heres the catch, she can only keep him for 18 months. Then afterwards he is sent to adoption. Seriously she made the right choice. You should see the baby boy (absolutely gorgeous), his always smiling and filled with life. There's also the inmates, each with their own story to tell.

Acting/Cast:
The acting was perfection. Whoever played the role for baby Min Woo is the best! I'm a sucker for babies!
Kim Yoon Jin is such an azmazing actress. Her betrayal of Jeong Hye is flawless. I could not imagine someone else even playing the role. She's a woman who loves her baby boy above everything and anything. I love her.
Na Moon Hee, Lee Da Hee, Kang Ye Won, Jung Soo Young, Park Jun Myun are all very commendable actresses. There are others as well but their the main ones. Everyone had this atmosphere, where they feed of each others energy. It was amazing!

Music:
*tears* When they all sang together, I felt like angels were singing. Especially the ending songs, I couldn't stop crying. Music is a very important part of this film.

Rewatch:
You must be all wondering why on earth I haven't given a 10 for this. There is only one reason, I don't want to have another cry fest.

Overall:
10/10. What is there more to say. Except GO AND WATCH IT NOW!

I really enjoyed watching this lakorn, and would really love to see Pinky and Weir act together again! Their chemistry was so awesome!

I guess to some this is lakorn really is overly dramatic, and I agree with that. The storyline takes many twists and turns, your mind is just going WHAT WHAT WHAT all the time. Sometimes you want to just tell Bow (Pinky) to calm down and just SEE WHAT SHE HAS IN FRONT OF HER! Then there Tos (Weir) who loves his sister a lot and would do ANYTHING for her. But then Bow comes along and he falls in love with her at first sight. He is the perfect P'ek (lead guy). Jealous, irrational, caveman and sweet as cotton. I'm not lying when I say he is CRAZY for Bow, really CRAZY. Some of the stuff he did to her I was not a happy viewer but at the end it was all good. I LOVED it when he smiled at her and calls her tee ruk (darling/my love) its so freaking adorable!

The side characters do get annoying. Some her there for comic relief and some are there to cause you so much HATRED and ANGER that you REALLY WANT TO GO INTO THAT SCREEN OF YOURS AND SLAP THE CRAP OUTTA THEM BECAUE THEIR SO ANNOYING!

It's a very entertaining drama to watch and definitely has all the elements of a thai lakorn. I would recommend you to watch a few episodes and give it a try, especially if your new to lakorns. The main soundtrack in this is STUNNING, when I heard it I literally played it on repeat for months.

OMG why did I not watch this sooner. I recommend it for everyone. It is so funny, I seriously sat there for the whole time either clapping and laughing like a crazy person, grinning from ear to ear or having tears in my eyes (there was this one sweet part that was just *squeals*)

The story of this movie was cliche, but who the heck cared. It was entertaining and fun to watch. And it contained one of my favourite themes childhood love *swoon*.

Acting I gave it a 10. Moon Geun Young, that girl knows how to act. She played the 15 year old so well (when the movie was shot she was actually 17, I calculated it out of curiosity). Kim Sae Ron, he was soooooo funny in this movie. One of favourite part with him was when he confronted the guy that Boeun was dating, that was just LOL. OMG and the scenes involving them two, were just hilarious.

Music I gave it a 8 because seriously I wasn't paying attention to it. Though at the karaoke scene where the each leads sing a song was no coincidence. Production crew I see what you did there.

Overall I gave this movie a solid 10/10. And I would rewatch it again for sure.

Who knew that a small incident would lead these two lovable characters into a journey which changes both their lives for the better.

Story:
I L.O.V.E.D the girl. She's so tough, I mean the way she acts. Though there's a deep sadness within her, she tries to hide it with a cheery smile that does not fool our dear Gyeon Woo. It's also different from what I ever watched and I enjoyed it a lot! Seriously I never laughed so hard. There were particular scenes that cracked me up, there's this one where honestly I couldn't breathe because I was laughing so hard.

Acting:
*Nods head and smile* It is flawless. It's like Cha Tae Hyun and Jun Ji Hyun were made to play the lead roles in this movie. I loved Gyeon Woo's mother, always hitting him. In saying that all the girls in his life are always hitting him, poor thing. Jun Ji Hyun plays 'The Sassy Girl' (I just realised that he never referenced her name O.O). She played the abusive, easily drunk, tough, cute, delicate, gorgeous girl. I need to watch more movies with her in it.

Music:
Is it just me or Director Yann Samuell really really loves Canon D Majoy by Pachelbel. I watched his other movie called 'Classic' and the same instrumental piece was played throughout the movie. I'm not complaining, it's more like an observation.

Rewatch:
I sure as hell would rewatch this. It's soo funny,

Overall:
I LOVED IT. I know why people keep telling me to watch the movie. Everything made sense at the end and this movie really made me believe in DESTINY ~

It was all amazing until they went all EXTREMELY EXTREMELY CHEESY on me. I was cringing through the last few episodes because they were disgustingly cheesy, that kind of cheesiness aint' my style at all. And she's a good crier but I don't like it when she was crying in almost every episodes and sometimes I just don't understand why she was crying. It was a great drama to watch but the cheesiness is just @[email protected]

Are you looking for a short drama that makes your heart clutch due to the leading couple and the story?
This is the drama for you!

I really cannot begin to implore how great this drama was, and I am saddened that it was only a measly two episode! I love the premises of time travel and a love that stretched boundaries. The fact that this drama was able to produce such deep emotions from me despite being only 2 episodes says a lot about the story, acting and directing of the drama. I just want to stress that you don't feel like the drama is rushed at all and it's paced in a way that shows the viewers that the relationship between the characters are developing at a steady and realistic pace.
It was also absolutely beautiful to look at and I really need to see Seul Gi and Doo Joon acting in a drama together again!

Story:
I immensely enjoyed the story. It gave me a view of what school life is in Korea. There is so much different between Korean & Australian high school that I was actually surprised. In Australia our grades are not just based on our results from exams but also through participation & co-operation in class.

What I found really amusing was that teachers & student could contact each other through personal mobile. That kind of communication is not allowed here, if the teacher wanted to contact us they have to go through the school and do it. That was kind of a cultural shock for me.

There is no doubt stereotypes of bullies played out in this drama. Not all bullies come from a poor family or have problems at home. I hate to admit it, some bullies don't change even as an adult. Despite that fact, the drama does show that bullies can change bit by bit. It's a good thing but it doesn't necessarily reflect real life.

Even though I enjoyed the story, I don't like how fast it went on the last episode. I feel like this drama should have been extended, it needed to be extended! It felt so rushed.

Acting/Cast:
How good was the cast! Everyone played their role so damn well! The bromance between Nam Soon & Heung Soon just highlighted this drama for me.

Music:
I wasn't really paying attention to the music until the last episode.

Rewatch Value:
I would want to watch it again a second time. There might be things that I missed!

Overall:
This drama is different from a lot of dramas I've watched. It feels like a Japanese drama because its based ons school life and deals with real issues facing teens today. I'm like a romance junkie and for me to watch this type of dramas is rare. Even though there is no romance, there are inklings of romance starting to bloom (Nam Soon & Ha Kyung; Teacher Chan & Jang) which will satisfy you. It's a drama that deals with issues faced in society today. It makes you question yourself (if you attend school), Why do you go to school?

Are you looking for a drama that well make you cry like a baby, smile like and idiot and keep you on the edge.

HERE IS YOUR DRAMA!

This has got to be one of my favourite dramas that I have seen. Started from EPISODE 1 it GRABBED your attention and got you hooked & emotional attached.

Yoo Sung (Lee Min Ho) and Nana (Park Min Young) are the cutest thing alive. They are AH-MAZING actors and actress. Ahh~ they really need to date in real life.

All the characters have their on lil charm that well make you love em'. But others well get on your nerves and make you want to jump into your computer screen and shoot them yourself.

There are many fighting scenes and MAN are they FRIGGIN AWESOME! Just. I can't explain it, you have to see it to know how I feel.

All I say is WATCH THE DRAMA. YOU WELL HAVE NO REGRET!

I love a good "forbidden romance" that makes me question my own morality and values. However, even if Chugakusei Nikki delves into that forbidden territory of a teacher and student romance, it does so in a realistic manner.

The innocence of Akira (played by the talented Okada Kenshi) who is experiencing the turbulence of being a teenager and who is in love with his teacher. For him, there is no consequences in loving his teacher because for someone his age - love is love. Whilst Hijiri understands that Akira's feelings for him are forbidden and can have severe consequences on her life. This isn't a spoiler, but if people are disturbed by the fact that she may act on her feelings, then don't be. Because she behaves the way one expects of a teacher who knows her student has a very real crush on her. She tries to distance herself and it doesn't work out. Akira's persistency and her own feelings break that fragile border between right and wrong.

This is a story of love, however more than that it is a slice of life. We as viewers are allowed special insight into the lives of each of these characters. We watch them grow, make choices and most of all live their life to the fullest, doing what they think is right. Thank you everyone on mydramalist for making my watching experience such a joy, and also aoihachi for the subs!

I didn't like this drama at all. Actually I came way close to hating it. The acting was absolutely WTF! And the storyline had so much potential it could have been a great drama but the acting faile.

Rainie acting was SOO DISAPPOITING. I have seen most of her drama and this is one of her worse. Her voice is in this is JUST KILL ME. I wanted to punch her sometimes so she could start talking normally.

I don't recommend anyone to watch this drama. Full of disappointment.

OMG What a little gem of a movie.
L.O.V.E.D it.

Story:
It was nothing I've never seen before, well except the fact that the child was his Granpa's illegitimate kid (that is really awkward). Nevertheless it was still a very very enjoyable movie to watch. I loved that he took her in when no one else would and then the next morning his like, "WHAT THE HELL did I get myself into." Unlike most in his situation he didn't give up, he kept going on. And the child, Rin was just gorgeous. She was shy at first, like a flower that is struggling to bloom. To see her start opening up throughout the movie and bloom to a gorgeous little flower was just so heart-warming.

Acting:
*CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP* Amazing! Matsuyama Kenichi, I seen him in Death Note and he is just gorgeous. When you see his name in a movie, you know that you will receive quality and the movie (well the acting side) would be flawless. He acted as the perfect 30 year old guy, who decide to take custody of the child. He really adapted himself well into the situation. Seeing him sacrifice his job so he can spend more time with her, the smile he gives her, the raw emotion of hwne he thought he lost her. That was seriously amazing.
Ashida Mana, she is going to be BIG when she;s older. Her acting skills was top, from the sad lonely young girl to a happy, smiling one. The pure joy in her face when she's with him, the fear in her face when he leaves her in the nursery school because she believes he would not come back for her. I have not flaws to point out.
The vibe between Matsuyama and Ashida was bloody awesome. You really did feel like they were father and daughter.
The other actors/actresses were really great as well, especially that young boy who acted as Khouki (Rin's friend).

Music:
I really didn't pay attention to the music, I guess it was good because music does aid in the creation of the atmosphere/mood of the film. The only piece of music I remembered was this german(?) one. It was so absurd to hear that in a Japanese movie.

Rewatch Value:
I would rewatch it any day. So heart warming :3

Overall:
You, reading this review better add this into your plan-to-watch dramalist or better, go watch it. It is a movie that would make you feel warm and fuzzy. The acting is amazing and the story was great. Just go watch it! GOGOGOGOGO

Its one of the best Taiwanese Dramas that I have ever watched. MUST BE WARNED YOU MUST HAVE A BOX OF TISSUES NEAR YOU AT ALL TIME especially for the first few episode MAN I was an EMOTIONAL WRECK.

Its also fast pace as well and not draggy at all which I love. Van Ness Wu OMG man he is one gorgeous HUNK and An Ady she is soo pretty! The lil kid OMG is so adorable and so bloody mature for his age.

The music was just LOVE LOVE LOVE. Especially the theme song, its on repeat on my itunes. XD

The only reason why I didn't give it 10 out of 10 for the re-watching value is because I really don't wanna go all emo again.

Overall a great drama that is just visually appealing to watch.

How shit was this movie. It was utterly disappointing and close to being a complete failure.

The acting was alright and the music I enjoyed to some extent.

The story is completely unoriginal but they could have totally owned it if it weren't for the person who edited/directed this movie. I mean it had so much potential to be a good movie but it failed to deliver at the end.

The biggest problem for me is that this movie did not FLOW. It was all over the place and I HATED IT. WHO THE HELL EDITED THIS MOVIE, they need a severe scolding.

And yes I did watch the Japanese drama of this movie and I recommend you. NO PLEAD YOU to watch this Jdrama of this instead of this movie.
What a waste of my 1:50:11 hours of my life.
