STORY: A guy falls in love with another guy in a small rural community in the mountains. This is a bit of a slow-paced tragedy. Qing Yu is a city boy commissioned to be a teacher and struggles to fit in.

ACTING/CAST: They did their job. The guy playing the violin even looked like he kinda knew what he was doing though.

MUSIC: Not much here really. It's too bad that they dubbed over music instead of really getting to listen to the character play the violin or the characters singing.

REWATCH VALUE: I don't mind a tragedy so much but it was just too slow to see again.

OVERALL: The two guys are cute, there's a ton of pretty scenery, there's the strangest and most flimsy excuse to get the two guys' shirts off for a sex scene that I've ever heard of (you will chuckle when you see it). Otherwise not much else.

This was some crazy funny but serious movie. It was more serious coz it dealt with law and death. The main characters and even the side actors all made it great cast. Lawyer ho sung is arrogant and only defends the rich for money until the case turns against him and he has to try and figure out the truth behind. It becomes really hard to win against money and hes faced with great challenges. The best thing going for him is being smart. Theres not any romance going on in the show but u still get glued to the screen.  Must see movie

This Is such a good funny yet sad story.  The two main actors are superb and. D.O from exo has really emerged as an upcoming new actor.  Jo jung suk is a veteran and the two acting as half brothers did great. Big bro had foul language through out and it rubbed off on doo young. He started off annoying in the beginning and it changed to being funny then sad in the end. Park shin hye was a great addition to the cast though she had somewhat minor role. Another person that brought laughter is the unemployed nemesis turned friend.. Great show i watched twice

Wow that was some movie. The temptation and  mystery around it made u glues to the screen. I've always loved im soo jung ever since i saw her in a tale of two sisters. Shes one of the best actresses in korea so i def had to watch . yoo yun suk was good in reply 94 but hes alright. She innocently gets caught up in a simple deal that would eatn her enough money to pay off her debts from the loan sharkers but it went south. The ending was great and satisfactory. I would love to see a part 2 so we find out their lives afterwards

This is a cute and light-hearted romantic comedy film.

A simple storyline about a 30-year old single Thai woman (Mei Li) who is rather untrained in the dating game feeling the pressure of finding a boyfriend after all her friends are married. She meets Lung who is a night-shift engineer for the Bangkok Transit System and goes about attempting to start and build a relationship with him.

As a movie, such a simple plot-line works very well because the show focuses a lot on Mei Li's everyday life and if you like slice-of-life shows, this will really appeal to you. There are lovely little snapshots and scenes of Mei Li and her middle-class chinese family interacting with each other, of Mei Li and her rather funny workplace boss and sale products, and of Mei Li trying to come to grips with how to date a man she is interested in.

There is also an introduction to the Bangkok transportation system, from motorbike taxis, to riverboat taxis and of course, the rail/ train system. As this film was also released as part of the BTS 10th anniversary, there are a lot of  scenes of the inner workings of the Skytrain infrastructure and operations, which is pretty insightful.

The comedy is most prevalent in the first half of the show where we get an introduction to our lead girl in rather amusing circumstances and it already sets the tone of future comedic scenes to come based on her rather quirky, naive and rather oblivious character. Bulk of the comedy in this show is carried by Mei Li - either character-related or circumstance-related - while Lung (our male lead) is a rather good foil to her character by being the more restrained, grounded and pragmatic of the two. It is a nice little play in their dynamic which comes across cute and sweet.

The romance is under-stated but sweet, and rather mature in spite of Mei Li's inexperience and naive-ness, and I personally quite enjoyed the simple-ness of the movie, and its depiction of a modern single woman's life and struggles in Bangkok.


ACTING/ CAST
CRIS HORWANG as Mei Li, is the unsurprising and undoubted star of this movie. As the movie's main character and main focus, she did a great job in carrying the whole show on her shoulders and her portrayal as the inexperienced and clueless Mei Li is cute, funny and endearing. She really brought life and sparkle to the entire movie.

KEN THEERADETH as Lung, was, as mentioned, a good foil and match to Mei Li's naive and ditzy character. Easy-going and pragmatic, his reactions to Mei Li's hilarious antics prevented the movie from going too far into over-the-top-theatricalism, and grounded it very well. His scenes and screen-time were not as eye-catching nor as extended as Mei Li's, but his screen-presence was always strong.

I also particularly liked Mei Li's family scenes and the lakorn inserts (with Aff Taksaorn)  in the movie. They lend another dimension and aspect to the show which was a nice addition.


RE-WATCH VALUE
As a romantic-comedy movie, it certainly fits the bill very nicely.
I liked the movie's simple plot-premise and the characters, but as enjoyable as it was to watch the film for the first time, the whole show did not excite nor moved me enough for it to sit strongly with me after it ended so on this basis the re-watch value is not that high. But it is a light-hearted and easy watch so for those who are in the mood for something like this, this will be a very good show for you.

So i rewatched this movie and decided to make a review.

I actually liked this movie the first time i watched it despite the problematic things with it. Im not sure why though. Maybe its the ambience or the music or my fondness for the cast despite the problematic characters.

*SPOILERS*

Is this even romance? How is there dating in the title? Bwodxjql

Park Hae-il's char was forcing himself on Kang Hye-jung's char. So Im totally not sure how the couple got together. I have no idea how it became mutual attraction. If my memory serves well, he sexually harassed her multiple times aside from well sexually assaulting her. Yea a horrible character.

Im all for damaged characters. Like shes an insomniac but somehow she can sleep well around him. Im weak for a dynamic like that. But then they made problematic into romantic. And i cant get behind that. She told him no countless of times. And what did he do? He just pushed his way through! With force! But then somehow they fell for each other.

And then the ending. I think im most annoyed by the ending. Why was she apologizing to him? Ok i get it. She pushed him off the cliff, so to speak. But its not like her allegations were false. She simply outed him for his horrible deeds and im glad she did. The guy did lose his job but thats the consequence for his actions. But he kept acting like the victim. And then after making up, they act like nothing happened. No sort of repentance, not even an apology from his part. Hes just like 'the only wrong thing i did was to like you'. No. This is all sorts of problematic.

The story of "Working Street" is similar to the movie "Asura" of 2016, the only difference is that in this there is no "hope". The  plot behind a paradoxical in the very good story, where Tae-sung a  martial arts fighter has no dreams, only live to stop fighting ...
Suffering  a narrative of ups and downs the film becomes annoying, the action and  fight scenes are good, but fail to leverage emotion. The  present and active cast gives truthfulness to the story, the suburban  cinematography gives the somber and melancholic climate that the  narrative needs, yet the film does not convince, perhaps guilty of the  almost plagiarism of "Asura"

"Tokyo Girl" talks about Miho dropping the phone on the stairs by accident. The phone has been there for 100 years in the past, where Tokijiro finds it. They realize they can communicate when the moon is visible. First, they do not realize they are in a different era, but gradually they begin to realize that each one is telling the truth. Tokijiro  sends a mirror to Miho, leaving him with the owner of the store,  telling him that a girl will come and get him 100 years later. The  shop owner's daughter who was five at the time, but when Miho shows up  at the store, now a 100-year-old woman remembers Tokijiro's request and  hands her the mirror and so the story goes on. The narrative is written as a novel based on their relationships, but is very avant-garde. The two realities do not appear as such in history, do not coincide, but become obvious in the end.
The story is kind enough. It is somewhat reminiscent of the 1983 original, as the main character falls in love with a boy from different times. In this movie, what travels in time is not a person, but a cell phone. The film is quite stressful because most of the story takes place between the phone conversation of the two main characters. In general
the movie is good and sweet, could have been better, aimed at girls but captivates all audiences. It's worth watching.

A flawed horror ...
"The Unborn Child" tells the true story of Trai, Phim, and his  daughter, Yaimai, who begin to feel amazement when Yaimai brings a toy  home to a temple ... It is not a killer toy.
In  parallel, the newborn son also follows a young teenage couple who  unexpectedly gets pregnant and hires an illegal abortionist to help, and  a young woman who is pregnant. This third subplot is very obscure for most of the film. Then, all three groups begin to experience hauntings apparently of children's ghosts. The last act is soon lost with some strange and out of place scenes. However, the finish offers a satisfactory, though dark, closure.
Overall "The Unborn Child" is a film with a familiar and interesting concept, and an unfortunate lack of fright. The predictable plot could have been excusable if it had more content and horror. Instead, the film seems to be dragging its feet to an inevitably predictable end. The  story is interesting, although generic, there are some good dreams and  mysterious visions, however, there is a disappointing lack of horror in  this movie, and some stories and stories are sloppy.

When you think you've seen everything, then comes "Talking Dick" with a somewhat sarcastic and very comical story. The  narrative is simple, a script without much coherence but fun, a movie  that worked well despite a beastly theme, where a young man's penis  suddenly "starts talking" after a frustrated attempt at sex with his  girlfriend. The cast is natural in the most spicy scenes, the good mood Thai prevails constantly. Overall it's an idiotic but fun movie, technically speaking it's within acceptable. So if you are looking for a reasonable movie just to give a good laugh, "Talking Dick" is an option.

The film follows the format of "Sex is Zero" that came out 5 years earlier. The movie this time is about female swimmers, and few men mingle along the way, making romance and few sexual innuendoes. The story flows much softer than the first.
The cast consists of many good-looking Korean girls parading in swimsuits. For  those who watched the first one the format is similar, however the  presentation is more refined in this, cinematography is fantastic and  visually entertaining the positioning of the cameras is strategic to  reach the maximum of sensuality. The romantic comedy is close to the level in its fun that is tied to its culture. It's more radical than any other Asian movie.

The  story of "Kikyo" is very interesting, a how it is told enchants, the  film is about a man but perhaps a little lost in life Haruo (Hidetoshi  Nishijima) who returns to his hometown to attend the marriage of his  mother widow . Once, a new love, Miyuki (Reiko Kataoka) who works in various jobs and still rears an 8 year old alone. After a meeting one night, Miyuki asks a Haruo to visit him the next day. When Haruo comes to visit, all he finds is the 8-year-old Chiharu. What starts as a mission to find Miyuki together is more a lesson in life, love, responsibility and bond to Haruo and Chiharu. A captive film difficult to explain what becomes so attractive, but everything, camera work, an update, a story, are excellent. Everything was in tune and harmony, an exceptional movie.

This was actually a funny ass movie. Yoo seung ho is pretty as they come. Hes a conman who thrives on playing different characters and fooling the rich people for their money. His partner is very hilarious and find himself doong and saying the funniest things. The last con was very serious it almost cost him.  I liked when he played a girl, hes got feminine facial skin and features he passed for it. Xiumin from exo -m was actually good and the female patrot reader was convincing too. Definitely recommending it to pass time.

That's Cunning! Shijo Saidai no Sakusen is probably the best movie about cheating on exams that you will find out there and it's definitely worth a watch! Even though it is over 20 years old, the comedy in this movie has aged really really well and it's still freaking hillarious on what kind of absurd and creative cheating techniques all these students come up with up. If you want to have a good laugh or even just some inspiration on how to cheat on your exams (hey I won't judge you), then you should absolutely watch & enjoy this movie!

Thai romantic comedy about a love that should never happen.
This  is a Thai romantic comedy story whose special feature of the film is  that it is the first direction of the actor Dan Woravesh, who this time  invited his friends and girlfriends Beam and Patty to join his first  film. It has a reasonable script, however very lazy, epic, a romantic melody in the melody of a joke, or a satire ...
The basic composition is the romantic scenes and the emotional drama. The film is not very focused on what it is trying to convey back to the viewer. For example, at first the movie seems to be spilling a love story so the character can learn a lot from this love story. But in the end, it seems the characters have not learned anything from the beginning. Overall "Sat2Mon" has a funny pearl and romantic scene tinkling and fairly modest dialogues.
