I know it sucks to read reviews that are pages long, so I’ll try to keep mines quick and straight forward, and least spoiler as possible…

I did not really expect much from this drama at first, but I was hooked right after I started. The I need Romance series, the 1 and 2, i never really liked, but this has now became one of my favorites.

This includes a little (very little) of the main characters in their childhood, and things happen when they meet again and live together when they are grown up. And I have to say, the chemistry between Sung Joon (main male lead) and Kim So Yoon ( main female lead) is AMAZING. The skinship and interaction throughout the drama is just great.

A little bit different from usual korean dramas, this drama has 3 set of couples, but mainly focuses on Sung Joon and Kim So Yoon. The other couples has interesting stories, and I ended up not skipping anything. It is also fabulous in the story development, NO DRAGS!

Below is my dramatic structure of the drama.

Conclusion: this is a drama with awesome speed, story, and romance. If you are looking for some lovey-dovey romance drama, this is a great choice. I definitely recommend this one!

This drama has a great story, but the beginning is just a bit slow. The first few episodes could have just been combined into one. This drama is a time-traveling type, as you may know from the synopsis. Traveling 9 times might sound like a turn down for you because it seems like the main character will just keep going back and forth, but this is not that simple.

Every time if he changes something, everything will change. Also, just to give you a hint, there are twists in this drama, if you love twists.

The romance between the actors are good, not excellent chemistry, but good enough for me.

Conclusion: I really enjoyed this drama with its twists and change of story. Would i recommend it? Mmhm if you have time and do not know what to watch, i would say go ahead and give it a try. But if you already have some other dramas in mind, i would say watch those first, and you won’t lose anything if you watch this one later.

First of all, Wow. Simply wow. I have been super busy with school, so I haven’t been updating for a while, but this drama brought me back. I just felt like I had to share it to all of you.

From acting, filming, editing, and to music, I will rate this drama with 10/10. No doubt. It is that good; alright enough with the compliments, let’s start the review.

In the beginning, maybe first 10 minutes? You won’t understand what is going on, but trust me, before half way, it will all make sense. The main guy went to Thailand to see his dad, but was wrongly accused for murder, and he goes back for revenge after 5 years. The story evolves in an excellent speed, no drags nor rushes. Each episode really gets better and better, and for this drama, I did not skip any parts.

And for the acting. I am so so so impressed. The main actress, Han Ji Hye, did not keep me watching May Queen, but she definitely pulled of this drama. The main actor, Yoon Kye Sang, is probably one of my favorite actor from now on. He portrayed the character so well and that is also one of the reason why this drama is so good.

For some reason, this drama is really underrated. The quality of the drama is great, the story is stunning, actings are touching, and the overall is simply amazing, but no one seems to know.

Below is my dramatic structure of the drama.

Conclusion: This is one of the most quality and smooth drama I have watched, and I definitely recommend it. In fact, I want you to go watch it now. Go click on the first episode, you go on! Believe me, you won’t regret!

This is a comeback drama for Lee Dong Wook, and i have to say he did a fantastic job. From the start to the end of the drama, i was hooked. The editing and overall of the drama is very smooth, very few dragging spots, nearly none.

Romance part of this drama is very very sweet, and there are great scenes that makes your heart skip a beat. The romance between the two main cast is just one of a kind, very cute.

I was debating between giving this drama overall 9 stars or 10 stars, and i gave it a 10 because this is really a worth watching drama, if you like a beautiful romantic and at the same time funny drama, go watch it!

Below is my dramatic structure of the drama:

Conclusion: this is a very warm and beautiful romantic drama, definitely worth watching!! The chemistry between the two main cast is really amazing, what are you still waiting for? Go watch it!

I know it sucks to read reviews that are pages long, so I’ll try to keep mines quick and straight forward, and least spoiler as possible…

Okay…in the start, i was looking forward for this drama because of Kim Jae Won, but somehow the story did not kept me going. This drama, just like the other drama of Kim Jae Won, Can You Hear My Heart, begins with childhood period, and continues when they are older.

The beginning was good, a bit slow, but watchable. Childhood times dragged on pass ep8, i think. And the grown up part progresses REALLY slow. I had a big hope for this drama, since Can You Hear My Heart was really good, and i even went Korea to see KIM JAE WON 2years ago, but this drama was no doubt very slow, draggy, and gets boring. Therefore i could not finish this drama, i tried several times, but….not satisfying.

Below is my dramatic structure of the drama:

Conclusion: if you are looking for a mild, and drama which start with childhood, and proceed through adult life, i say give it a try. But if you are like me, looking for some romantic comedy, heart wrenching, and entertaining drama, i suggest looking for another one.

***FULL STAR! One of the best drama ever!***

I know it sucks to read reviews that are pages long, so I’ll try to keep mines quick and straight forward, and least spoiler as possible…

I usually don’t watch taiwanese drama, but this time i ran out of Korean dramas, so i was looking through for a taiwanese drama to satisfy my kdrama needs. Randomly saw this drama and decide to give it a try, I NEVER REGRET WATCHING THIS DRAMA, IT IS BEAUTIFUL. I started watching this on sunday noon, i literally marathoned it till monday morning 5am, slept for 1 hour, head to school. Thats how good it is…seriously!

The start of the drama introduced the characters perfectly, and gave a detailed background. Then the plot and story follows smoothly, with no rush or drag. It did take a while for story to grow in the very beginning, but only a little bit, trust me.

This drama is considered a comedy romance type, but as the story grows, it becomes extremely heart wrenching and touching! Its a great combination, which kept me watching for 14hour straight!

Below is my dramatic structure of the drama:

Conclusion:
If you are looking for an awesome and romantic and heart wrenching and beautiful and amazing drama, here you have! Don’t hesitate! Watch it! I fell in love with this drama, and kept thinking about it even now! (P.s. i cried a lot for this drama! Its not a very sad and teary drama, but thats how good it is to me)

To me this was a very fresh story, of love from generation to the next. This drama begins with the previous generation who were “ill-fated” and could not continue their love, but then next generation fell in love with each other.

The story was very well explained and portrayed by the actors throughout the drama. I was hooked from the first few episodes, and kept me watching until the very end.

There are some little heart wrenching parts, but overall its a semi-light romance drama that i can digest with a few days. Its very cute and happy, it is not one of those dark and heavy story romance.

Below is my dramatic structure of the drama:

Conclusion: if you are looking for something light and romantic, this is a great drama to think about! Very impressed with it overall, and hope more dramas like this will be produced.
