This drama is absolutely amazing, 10/10 my favorite drama of all time. I have watched it 4 times in total! And I have never rewatched anything this much. The story and overall show and characters is very different from your typical Chinese drama. This one is very special. It isn't over exaggerated and fake like most Chinese dramas such as Meteor Garden or Boys Over Flowers. This drama depicts REAL life in China as a highschool student. It really brings you into their lives and the things they deal with. This is a must see for anyone who likes Asian dramas.

As the end credits of this drama say, after all, evil things start in the hearts uf us humans. This drama skillfully connects absolute darkness with unshakable will to fight, it connects the dark depths of the human soul with the hope for some light.

I started this drama because I was curious about how such concepts like horror would be executed in a kdrama. I was wondering how scary it is. It is scary. It is cuel. It is bloody. It shocked me, but it also fascinated me. It was shot perfectly, with an artistical uniqeness - it was in its very own dark way aesthetically pleasing. The start is strong, intense, dark. I feared that it would continue like that and never reach real depth. I was mistaken.
Let me tell you, this is, in a really strange way, the most beautiful drama I've watched so far. You might wonder now, how I (as someone who doesn't even like horror series), could call something cruel like that beautiful? ... Well. The characters showed, that even in the pitch black darkness, even in the hopeless vortex of death and murder, there is something, or someone to fight for. In their own way, they showed the weirdest, but most beautiful friendship I've ever seen in a drama.

I found myself being an emotional wreck because of this drama, it made me think a lot, it scared me from time to time, it made me cry a lot, but most importantly, it made me enjoy it. And that was only possible due to the absolutely outstanding cast, the actors were chosen perfectly and they acted it out in an outstanding way. They perfectly conveyed all kind of emotions, reactions, behaviours, in this very dark, very depressing story. Thanks to the excellent script, it however wasn't senselessly dark. It communicated a meaningful message. The message to fight for what's worth to fight for.

Where the to start? I know this is a romance, but they don't actually establish the relationship between the leads before they go straight into angst. He then goes into stalker mode and head games and, wow, not a healthy relationship.

This show is about guys using women and making all sorts of poor decisions. It gets wearing and I couldn't really care about them at the end.

It's a shame since there are some good actors and some characters with potential, but those characters get sacrificed in the name of plot points and then this falls apart. Ugh.

Points for featuring a mute character and naming the American school after Robin William's character in Dead Poet Society.

Decent-ish, nothing-out-of-the-ordinary show. The plot is something that's mildly common in asian fiction (mostly anime/manga), but it's decently executed. Characters are fun and their interactions are enjoyable. The lead pair has a lot of chemistry and I really liked the evolution of their relationship. My only real problem is that it's only 6 episodes long and that this show could have benefited more with a longer batch of episodes. A few things were not touched upon, mostly the bromanship between Na Jin Wook and Jae Bum, and the relationship between Park Na Rae and Wang Rim.
Overall, it's cute and very easy to watch, so I'd recommend it for those who want to watch something really short with decent quality.

Drama start with a good beginning , good story line showing pure love but last few episodes get bored as well as not need of such stretchingof story.Though their is love triangle but it just show pure love and true friendship.
I really don't understand last few episode stories line that first he pushes her then they reunion but how that don't know then she pushes him then they reunion how that don't show .Then at the end sad ending and end with a confusion part that she is alive or his imagination or that bangle which disappeared from her hand bring her back to life.if there was 48 episodes so they can make one more episode to clear our confusion of last part ,we don't have problem to watch one extra episode.
One time watch ,if you like love story then you can watch this drama but still it has sad ending .

I'm about to give 5/10 on the story lmao. When I saw Jin Yong Tae died on that shot and heard that he couldn't survive I was like what is that why need to kill him hahahaha but on the last episode I was really shocked that he's back didn't expect that. overall I totally love this it was also good if they didn't kill K(magician) so there will be a season 2 because it was really great that ended as a married agent that impressed me a lot so this will be a recommended drama for the year it's good for family and friends my type! : ))

For some reason, since I've began watching dramas, dramas that have been created more than 6 years ago just seem to have so much more sincerity and authenticity to the story and the actors' portrayal of the characters. City Hall is not an exception to this phenomenon, truly a gem among the many dramas that have been released. Cha Seung Han and Kim Sun Ah have created such beautiful chemistry and evoked so much emotion through this drama. It was an easy drama to watch especially since I was looking for a good drama to watch. City Hall definitely blew all my expectations away in that the story and the characters' responses gave it such a humane element. I'm not good at writing and expressing the emotions I have for this drama, but it definitely made it into my top 10. At times you will feel frustration, pain, confusion, anger, fear, and everything, but this is what makes it a good drama. If you're looking for an easy but drama with substance, this is definitely worth the watch.

The story caught me from the beginning- it is good and the subject is interesting.
I liked that the female lead was really cool; she was the one fighting the bad guys during the whole drama. She is strong, smart and really cute.
The other characters were good as well and the story was made so that you find out what's the role of each character really late in the series and that is one of the reasons why I kept wanting to watch it until the end.

I just finished the series and I decided to write a review because I really enjoyed it. I finished the series in one day and I can say that it has been long since I remained with such a good vibe after finishing a drama.

The romance is light, soft and by that I mean that there aren't really romantic scenes in this drama but you can clearly see the sentimental development of the characters. The chemistry is good even if there isn't much romance and I really enjoyed this approach. I usually like dramas to have romance as a main genre and this doesn't, buuuuuut this drama was really enjoyable even without that obvious romance! Also, there aren't love triangles or jealous dumb second leads which was a blessing for me.

There is a lot of action is this drama, a lot of good quality fighting (mostly). I really enjoyed how the female lead was strong enough to fight most evildoers alone. To be honest, in this drama, girls are the fighters.

The actors are good. Even if sometimes the acting felt a bit off, it wasn't bad enough to even consider dropping the drama.
The music was okay I guess.. there is one song that usually plays on romantic occasions that is kind of catchy and is stuck in my head right now.

This is the kind of drama that can be rewatched because it doesn't have just the main plot line. The story follows side stories more than the main story but those side stories lead to the main. I guess I don't really know how to explain this but trust me.. it's good.

I definitely recommend this drama for those who want some light story and romance.

Historical drama is not my cup of tea because I know how twisted the story of a historical drama. I tried to watched this because I miss Ji chang wook but oh my gosh I am so dissapointed in this drama..I have no complain about the acting of the artists. I knew this drama was very popular and loved by so many but not for me I guess.I didn't liked the development of the three main lead.

Empress ki started with a good storyline but after episode 8 I started to get bored and lost my interest. Empress ki getting on my nerves honestly. Haha... I just hate the idea that because the empress ki was the main lead what she done were right and what the others done were wrong because you're the main lead. For me all of them are selfish even the empress ki.

Empress ki-started with a strong character and ended with a twisted character and her unclear feeling was really annoying.

King-goody-goody character.no more no less

Emperor-he is my favorite among the main lead he is selfish and childish but he know what he wants. I just hoping that he became a strong and terror character in the end but I am still satisfied to his actions to the people betrayed him but I am against that he killed the king. In my opinion if he killed the king he should killed the empress ki. Hehe... But I liked the punishment he gave to the empress ki when bayan killed, the emperor exiled the  empress ki, that's the best decision of the emperor that ever done because he stand to his belief. He proof that even he was just a puppet of regent, to his mother and also to the empress ki he still the emperor and no one's can opposed him..
Honestly I didn't liked the empress ki character because of her twisted feeling of the two male lead. In my opinion she both loved them in different way but less in romantic. She loved the king more on admiration and she loved the emperor more on sympathy thats why her feeling with the king and the emperor always unclear because the truth they were not her true love. Haha..

I watched this for the chemistry of the main leads. I'm not going to lie. I am a romance junkie. As others have said before, the story is super cliche and drags in places. The two main leads, however, basically smoldered whenever they were on the screen together. It was tough to get into the story. It took me a good 3-4 episodes before I was hooked. That being said, after a while I felt that the two main leads were written to be 'too perfect' if that makes sense. They always did the correct thing or said the correct thing in any situation which made them not very realistic imo. The secondary characters were also charming and helped keep me watching as well. I adored both sets of parents and all of their friends. However, I didn't really care for Nana's and Quinyang's story, just how I felt personally.
I wouldn't rewatch the whole thing, but I admit to already rewatching the kissing scenes. *fans myself*

To be honest, I didn't enjoy this drama very much. I came for the comedy and food tags, but it ends up being a sort of depressing slice of life drama. There are a few light moments surrounded by a rain cloud of a life. I did enjoy that the main character is a different type of character. She's loud, rude, sloppy, and almost completely self centered. Yet, she was fun to watch at times. I felt that the male main character was sort of a cardboard cut out type. He was passive and innocent to the point of being unrealisitic in my opinion.
Not much food porn to report either. Each episode was centered on a different dish, but don't expect delicious looking food shots that make your mouth drool. I think the only reason I finished it was because the episodes were so short. I'm not willing to rewatch this. There are other much more entertaining things to watch in my opinion.

This drama was so disastrous that all its ridiculous elements became somewhat entertaining again. Somewhere along the way it seemed like it didn't take itself serious anymore.

First of all the drama went way too long. Even for people who'd marathon this, they would still forget the first half or feel like it's been ages since they watched the first couple of eps.

The biggest weakness is this really, REALLY flexible storyline. Depending on what was needed, it happened. Regardless of its realistic possibility or moral value, or topping one stupidity after another.

The more ridiculous it became, the more fun I had with the side characters. Their weird behaviour was entertaining at times and draw in the focus while the leads lost a lot of importance.

The "best" part was how this drama turned into a makjang. And that actually made me stick with it, even though it was still way over the top. But in exchange some of the hidden side stories were really interesting. I was even willing to give this a 5.5, but then the finale happened and destroyed more of what I thought wasn't possible anymore. People who should be clever, quick-witted or whatever, became the opposite, got stupid and blindly followed a messed up script. Not to mention the result of Kim Jong Sam's falsely judged imprisonment.

I wouldn't recommend this, not in a million years.

This is my favourite thaiwan drama . Its just simply amazing . Love the main couple . enjoyed every bit of the drama . Story line is not exceptional.But characters written very well. ML looks so hot and FM looks so cute . Chemistry between main couple is amazing. ML character is playing very well. Struggling boy friend revenge and love. MF is looks like dumb but I found it cute because it is the charm of her character. Normally I am not a person rewatch any drama . But this one definitely yes I am going to rewatch it after some time.

It seems I'm the only one who's not into this drama seeing how many stars this series is getting. I made it up to episode 2 - ish. Well ish because I gave up half way. Maybe I'm just getting pickier now that I'm older.

The thing that got me is the heroine personality (not hating on the actress because surprisingly she's good). Its her character I have a problem with, I kinda wish she was the type that don't need someone to "rescue" her. I can almost predict what's going to happen before it did like in the first episode when the heroine fell from her bike and oh so romantically the hero was there to help and in second episode where I was hoping she would stand up when the wannabe mean girls clique confronted her. But instead yes you guess it the second guy was there to help. I was rolling my eyes so hard I could almost see part of my brain that actually care.

I do however like the main leads interactions. I even laugh few time.

*sigh* Maybe because I wasn't in the mood to watch these kind of plot after reading too many books with strong characters.

Will I be watching this again? I don't know. Maybe.. when and if I finally found my mood.

Couldn't appreciate the music since I only made it to episode 1 and a half.

I like the story line. It is very different than typical K dramas . But cant feel the chemistry of main couple at all. Very disappointing acting of MF. She cant act. We cant feel she is happy or sad. Only from dialogues we can understand the situations . But supportive characters doing a good job. Second couple is far better than main couple . Started as a slice of life drama with day to day struggling ordinary people. after few episodes it turns out to typical drama with same scenarios . Cant understand its poor direction or poor acting of main couple . I skipped few episodes before last episode . Because its got very boring and predictable.
