If anyone is hesitating to watch this drama don't waste anymore seconds
..
And
..
JUST WATCH IT RIGHT AWAY
Everything about this drama is perfect, the story, the meeting of two different people with some past wound and suffering and how they begin to heal each other. "love is not about giving up something for your lover , its about doing something for your lover"a
..
I had been unwilling to watch this drama for a long time but i just started 1st episode and i was hooked on the story and i didn't cry at this drama at all.
Every scene was so beautiful in the drama .
Zo In Jung's acting in episode 14-16 was so Heartfelt, he should do more dramas...
I am a fan of Gong Hyo Jin after this drama
"I LOVED IT, JUST MY CUP OF TEA <3"

If you only watch newer dramas, then you won't like this one. No aegyo, compelling music, animations, stuffed animals, sound effects or luxury fashion. But what you do get is well rounded character development and a plot that is strangely compelling. I watched the remake of this drama first so I already knew about the plot elements. but the original has so much more depth. I grew to care about the characters. The best friend story line was very touching and sensitively crafted. Abuse is hard to portray with care. The family dynamics are realistic. I want the father in the drama. He cares so very much for his family. Surprisingly, the chaebol family isn't praised in this drama nor is the money they have envied. They are viewed with suspicion. This drama celebrates the average, hard-working Korean family looking out for each other with love. This drama sits well on my mind. I have no moments of frustration at stupid plot tricks, mindless tropes (they are there, however, but subtly done), awful product placements, drunken writers or robot-shine makeup. Just 26 hours of quiet, steady story. This opposites attract drama has my recommendation.

This drama...wawww I like it. the music, acting, romance, seriousness.omgod.... I cant..
I'm listening to the song rn ...ending song while typing and it's making me cry. I love the ending. I like how they created a solution to the problem instead of showing the solution without explaining it. At first, I was likee... what's with the title..so OA. I first saw this drama on IG. it just keeps popping out on my feed and I began to like it. So...instead of finishing my other drama...I started watching this drama. and I did NOT regret it at all. It's been a while since I watched a Chinese drama and I like how this drama gave me the chance to watch Chinese drama again.
I love the cast, and the leads especially the other supporting cast. They were amazing <3
I just wish they didn't give too much info in the introduction of the drama and end. It's kind of spoil so like whenever I watch another episode, I check which part I haven't seen and I just keep waiting for that part to come. So.....but it was good. showing parts with music <3

50+ episode makjang distilled into 16 episode chaos

Makjang is ridiculous and over-the-top drama (which generally rates poorly on MDL), and Graceful Family ticks all the makjang qualifications: plot twist(s) in every episode, cocktail of comedy and drama, absurd cast of characters, and more. It makes for an entertaining watch, but I am grateful that this drama wraps up in 16 episodes. The ridiculousness makes it difficult to connect with its characters and to elevate it to endearing versus entertaining.

Story:
Graceful Family covers an incredible amount of plotlines over the course of 16 episodes (even covering a flashback at the beginning of each episode). The drawback is that most of these plotlines just happen for the purposes of moving the story forward. Then, the characters have to react accordingly, but even their reactions seem inconsistent at times. Roller coaster is a perfect analogy as the viewers are strapped in to follow whatever rail the writers have created for the story.

Acting:
I am a big Im Soo-Hyang fan because of her main role in My ID is Gangnam Beauty. Her character in Graceful Family is a stark contrast from Gangnam Beauty. The one similarity is the character’s belief in herself. That confidence/conviction is masked in Gangnam Beauty whereas it is in the forefront of her character in Graceful Family. The execution of the character in Graceful Family is simple, but that does not take away from Im Soo-Hyang’s great performance.

Same can be said for the other main leads and supporting cast. For a cable network drama, the entire cast of Graceful Family is experienced and talented. Bae Jong-Ok stands out as the villain character (plus I recommend Live to see more of her!). The major loss of points in this area is that the writing really limits the actors’ performances. Every character is put into impossible situations and directed to overreact, fully embracing the makjang moniker. Still, the overall acting is what kept me tuning in week by week.

Music:
Even the music is melodramatic in Graceful Family. Any hint of plot tension is accompanied by dramatic music, and the OST heavily leans in that direction. It follows the kdrama music formula that has proven successful over the years. MBN carefully crafted Grace Family to leverage all the key points that we expect of Korean Dramas.

Rewatch Value:
As entertaining as Graceful Family can be, it is best enjoyed in the moment because dwelling any longer highlights its various flaws. The cast is the highlight of the drama, and I attribute its rating success to them. Still, I would rather rewatch two dramas that I mentioned earlier instead of Graceful Family (My ID is Gangnam Beauty + Live). Given the solid amount of drama offerings in 2019, missing Graceful Family is not a loss for most drama watchers.

The acting was ok, music is decent, the cinematography was even nice, but it goes nowhere, it wants to to be this great epic show to hard, but it feel more like a wet dream of some stuntmen beeing in charge to make a show script... It can be great to kickstart a show with some action, but this one seem to never find the baseline to build up from ... There are some shows worse/cheaply made, in this one there is some crispness in style and visuals, but maybe its just personal taste, i never warmed up to it.

So weird, yet so very perfect

Fresh and unique. Extremely fast paced. Not one moment is dull.

You have to pay attention because the writing is so clever and quick witted. Honestly, the dialogue zooms by and you have to read as fast as a cheetah.The humor might be a little weird, deadpan, and sarcastic, but that's probably why I liked it so much. I am not the type of person to laugh out loud, but I ended up doing just that while watching this drama. Honestly, there were lines that were so clever and funny that I rewinded to watch the scene again. Not only that, but I shed tears IN THE FIRST EPISODE. This drama tugged at my emotions within the first episode and continued to do so as the drama continued. Nothing like I've watch before, and it is so weird. So, so weird. But I truly loved it.

MUSIC: 100% in this category. There is one song that has like 7 different renditions and each one sounds amazing and fits the mood. I could not get that shampoo song out of my head.

ACTING: Can I call it acting, when it feels like the actors are the characters themselves? It felt so natural, never felt forced or cheesy imo. They all did an amazing job.

I'd definitely rewatch this. So many laughs. And it was incredibly unique and meta. I could've watched 50 episodes of this. I finished it in a couple days, and I was sad I had to say goodbye.

(I will admit tho, I found the last episode to be a bit weak, hence the 9.5 instead of 10. They could have ended the series way better, but I am hopeful for a season 2 so maybe they did not feel the need to exactly make the final episode feel like a final episode.)

All in all, Be Melodramatic is added to my Favorite Drama list. Watch it. You will not regret it.

I found this while looking for bromance and i have to say i am satisfied with Fallen Angel. It has its cute moments when the olders brother, especially Tsubasa, fuss over Umi. In my opinion its quite adorable. The music in the backround always had this creepy vibe which i loved. I have to say its not a happy go lucky story and thats what makes it better if youre into dark stuff. At first it might seem like a mess of a series but you get used to it. Irecommend it if youre into bromance and protective brothers

Face off ,it is a story of two brothers having same father but from different mother how their true love ,trust and loyalty Frome each other changed into hatred and jealousy that one become enemy of other and it is misunderstanding of feelings and thinking.
on the other side this drama also give a beautiful message about true friendship ,no matter what one can't see other in pain . Love can't be force ,love is about sacrifice your feelings ,so one can live happily ever after ,it is just compromise to your feelings ,this drama also shows that frustration of not getting anything changes one personality totally .
About chemistry between lead actor and actress is so not so intense because at some point he looked mor matured than her though sometimes they look cute ,then Song Qian Jin pairing is also so cute and adorable and he look so cute .I want more with the ending part that lead couple getting married and his brother also settle with her friend ..So it will be more happy ending.

I was interested to this drama because of the cover image and the positive reviews. But after watching 8 episodes I decided to drop it. I'm not talking about cliches or arrogant ML role, I was actually kinda looking for 'bad' ML type after watching so many dramas with nice ML type which become boring. But it's just the the story just meh and there is nothing interesting to tease me to run for the every next episode. After dragging myself to watch episode by episode I just did not want to punish myself when there are still a lot of dramas waiting in my PTW list. Honestly I was looking forward for the actor Jung Il Woo since seeing his great acting in Moon Embracing the Sun. His acting here is good actually, just his character seems so unrealistic, an entertainment industry CEO who falls in love in the first sight to a average looking girl? In the other hand, IMO Yi Ryung character is realistic being a country girl. Despite of negative comments of actress Yin Se Yeon, I think she nailed her role as a 'naive' girl clueless of the modern Seoul, entertainment world and celebrities. Head section Heo and the psychiatrist's acting skills are actually very good too. Too bad, I actually was looking forward to see 'behind the scene' hard work of pop idols.

I really... really enjoy watching this drama and wait every week for this. The story, just like I said, is predictable. But, I can't help to not skipping this one. The "mother" of this story is just unrealistic, like, what on earth you throw a party to cure your son, you just make it worst.
I love the chemistry between main leads. Both are cute together, especially kyun sang when he was jealous. So hilarious and fluffy. I just love the proportion of the couple here. Kyunsang just like a giant teddy bear when he's near yoo jung (which I love, because who doesn't love teddy bear, huh?)
I already recommend this to anyone who wants to see a light-cheerful-yet predictable drama (and most of them loved it)
If you want to start a light drama with less evil character and predictable plot, just start it and you won't be disappointed, because this drama is so hilarious

This movie is so lame, so boring, so damn pointless. I don't mind tropes. I watch trope movies all the time but when you have such a boring plot it just doesn't work even though the main lead was so cute I couldn't sit through it. That end plot twist was supposed to be genius but it wasn't because I wasn't excited about the characters, maybe in one or two places especially when he gets his silver hair but even those could not save this movie for me. And the script was so wishy washy like the characters it was all a waste of time.

After hearing my sister rave over and over about this drama while we frantically took photos of Gyeongbokgung Palace, I finally watched it! This was a so-so drama for me. Plot was unique which I liked, however, the story could have been told in 16 or 18 episodes instead of 24. Too many crying and brooding scenes. Too many family scenes that did not contribute to the story at all, forward button please. I really disliked how the male lead’s lack of emotional and verbal communication was really the only source of conflict between him and the female lead, and it lingered forever! They could have (1) highlighted the reason why, (2) showed the process of how hard it is for him to show/say his deepest feelings and then (3) featured how he overcame his struggle in 6 episodes. They could have given the viewers more of the lovey dovey part instead. Oh well, I digress.

The second lead crying scenes were on the cringey side, ack, it pains me to see how awkward he looked. Otherwise the rest acting chops were on the good side. Unfortunately this Drama has no rewatch value for me and no I will not recommend this to my friends.

OMG it is so irritating to watch this series! I had to drop it! The main leads are so NOT fit for the roles ! The king looks weak and indecisive. The main female lead, her look is so dramatic . She does not look smart to play that role.

The story Line is so poorly written. I just hate it with a passion where misunderstandings arise when people fail to explain The obvious IMPORTANT thing. I don’t understand why the main female lead has to be angry at all he general?! Thing happened that made him misunderstood her, instead of explaining to him she goes “there’s no need for me to explain, you can think of me however you want”!!
And when the maid got raped in her wedding day, no body care to explain to the groom that she got poisoned by the other chick. Also I don’t know understand why They didn’t get married but wait till Concubine Qi suggested.
There are so many damn maids I. The palace and no one bother to watch the kids so they people keep harming them.

All in all...it is just SO IRRITATING to watch this...especially after watching Story of Yanxi Palace!

I just can’t stand main lead faces!!! Both of them are not very attractive. Looks like they got bad plastic surgery or something. Yang mi and Claudia yang are way better looking and acting

Don’t waste your time on this tittle. Watch Story of Yangxi Palace! It is so so so satisfying to watch!!!!!
