she was pretty kdramaSummary: Kim Hye Jin was happy to hear from her old friend Ji Sung Joon. Remembering him as the chubby boy from school, she was surprised to see him as a handsome, successful man. Ji Sung Joon on the other hand remembered her as the pretty girl and thought she would even look prettier in the present. Unfortunately it wasn’t the case.

Genre: Romantic Comedy
Episodes: 16
Stars: Hwang Jung Eum as Kim Hye Jin
Park Seo Joon as Ji Sung Joon
Go Joon Hee as Min Ha Ri
Choi Shi Won as Kim Shin Hyuk




Likes: I was glad to see Hwang Jung Eum and Park Seo Joon as a couple in this drama. Though these 2 were kind of siblings in Kill Me, Heal Me, the guy’s interest on her made me wish to see them together in another drama. It seemed my wish had been heard. There was obviously a good chemistry between the leads though Park Seo Joon appears to be much younger than Hwang Jung Eum. The bubbly character of Kim Hye Jin suited to that cold personality of Ji Sung Joon which made it comfortable to watch.

Si Won oh Si Won! It’s great to see another idol in a drama. Si Won delivered pretty well. His transformation from the scruffy look reporter to the very handsome author TEN was definitely MOST (magazine)-like! His looks, acting, command in the English language, I’m pretty sure I’ll be seeing him more in the future. Furthermore, his character in this drama had been made the “big lose”. Such a waste Si Won got dumped! Something like that… The one that got away but not to worry he’ll have his own drama next time :).

Hug and kissing scene on the hospital bed was a heart-stopping one.

Kim Hye Jin’s look transformation was worth the wait. It took it 8 episodes to finally see her pretty but she turned really pretty and more likeable.

It was cute to mention Super Junior while focusing the camera on Si Won’s face.

The lady boss got to be the funniest character in this drama. Her outfits were outrageous so as her Italian accent. It was always very entertaining to watch her.

The ending was cliche so as the whole drama actually but there’s something about cliches that I like. No surprises. I got the ending that I like… wedding scene and an elaborate epilogue that was even showing a beautiful offspring.

Dislikes: It was hard to watch the 2 main leads unlikeable characters in the beginning. Kim Hye Jin was just too loud and Ji Sung Joon was such an ass.

I like Park Seo Joon but he’s no Ji Sung. He was a bit lacking when it comes to acting.

In one of the scenes, Hari was doing yoga with too much makeup. Hm…

My Rating: 7.5 stars! (10 as highest)

yong pal kdramaSummary: To pay back his credit, Kim Tae Hyun, a resident surgeon at Han Shin hospital does house calls for injured gangsters which earned him the name Yong Pal. With the intention to get a secure position in the hospital, he gets himself involved in a big secret on the 12th floor which houses the sleeping chaebol heiress beauty, Han Yeo Jin.

Genre: Medical, Action, Romance
Episodes: 18
Stars: Joo Won as Kim Tae Hyun
Kim Tae Hee as Han Yeo Jin
Jo Hyun Jae as Han Do Joon
Chae Jung Ahn as Lee Chae Young




Likes:  It’s a terrific story and I love the fact that Joo Won took the lead. With his experience as a genius surgeon before, it was easy to associate him with another medical drama. Young, ambitous, talented and risk-taker Kim Tae Hyun is a character to fall in love with. That even the most beautiful sleeping princess would sleep no more :).

Talking of “the most beautiful”, I think this drama has the most beautiful leading lady I’ve ever seen (since it’s my first Kim Tae Hee drama ever, haha!). She really looks like a doll! How can one be so beautiful  even in their sleep! Angel-like in her long hair and fierce with a short hair. Just too perfect!

I love the music that’s being played everytime someone has to make a great entrance… It makes everyone looks so great and powerful and cool and good-looking and huge…. even on their burial.

Han Yeo Jin’s house is magnificient! It looks familiar though because it’s the same house in the “The Heirs”. In this drama, they put more details in the interior.

The sleeping beauty lab is a work of art! This has to come up very impressive as it would be the home of the most beautiful, rich, (powerful if awake) chaebol heiress.

I love Cynthia, the supermodel! Her presence was something. She would have overshadowed Han Yeo Jin’s character if she was there all the time :). It was a short role but glad to see her again in the last episode.

Some comical relief… how about our gangster support? Love them! Our gangster boss specially gave the whole drama a lighter mood.

Poor Han Do Joon but at least wifey had a change of heart for him.

Romantic windy hill scenes! And I got 2 of them.

How could you resist a million-dollar proposal from your very beautiful girlfriend? From an heiress to surgeon boyfriend… marry me, be my only heir and legal guardian… ahm of course  YES!

And I just love the ending. Teasing! I thought they would pull a nasty one, almost got me fooled. But it turned out to be awesome! With the come back of Cynthia and a young company, they pulled a very Yong Pal ending! Love, love, love!




Dislikes: Just some logic holes here… why would you hire that sly secretary who was with the enemy all along and put all your trust in him. It was just so annoying  watching him almost winning in the end.

Scholar Who Walks the Night kdramaSummary: Kim Sung Yeol together with his best friend, the crown prince Junghyun tried to get rid of Gwi, the vampire who was ruling the palace… but failed. He got bitten and turned into a vampire himself and went into hiding. After a century, he found the secret on how he could get rid of Gwi. With the help of the ruling royals and unfortunately with the woman he loves, he’ll take the battle that will end it all.

Genre: Period, Fantasy, Romance
Episodes: 20
Stars: Lee Joon Ki as Kim Sung Yeol
Lee Yoo Bi as Jo Yang Sun
Shim Chang Min as Crown Prince Lee Yun
Kim So Eun as Choi Hye Ryung / Lee Myung Hee
Lee Soo Hyuk as Vampire Gwi
Jang Hee Jin as Soo Hyang




Likes: Vampire Overall Looks: These drama has the prettiest vampires I’ve ever seen! Kim Sung Yeol and Gwi turned Joseon into a runway. Who’s the fairest of these two? I’m always a fan of LJK (Kim Sung Yeol). Omo, omo, those looks could melt a million chocolate ladies, lol! Those eyes and his perfectly crafted face topped with a superb talent in martial arts. He’s a winner! Gwi (Lee Soo hyuk) is not lagging behind. Oh those curly long locks, sophisticated nose and a tall lean figure. Gwi’s gracefulness and power could always win the ladies.

The Voice:  It’s not that Kim Sung Yeol failed in this department. His voice was actually really sexy in this drama but I think Gwi won this part hands down. Gwi’s voice was absolutely shiver-worthy!

Best Dressed: I totally loved Kim Sung Yeol’s Hanboks especially the one with the flowers. Just sooo beautiful! But Gwi’s outfits were gorgeous as well. Long and flowing and dark! Suits his character very well.

The Characters: I just loved both! Kim Sung Yeol’s charm is his good-nature, his love, belief and loyalty. Gwi on the other hand is the power, strength and in the end his weakness.

The cast is well chosen. It’s good to see ChangMin here. Lee Yoo Bi though super cute didn’t really disappoint as the leading lady of LJK. Kim So Eun has improved a lot and Jang Hee Jin was just so pretty.

I love the OST. There’s a song that I particularly like and it was always played in the beginning when the leads were just falling in love. Then later on, played again shortly in the epilogue.

Vampire fights were awesome! Very well choreographed.

Kim Sung Yeol’s library was lovely! I could imagine the smell of all the books in there. It was very well thought. This is just one example of the production’s effort on details in this drama.

Though the chemistry between the leads wasn’t top, the first kiss was heart-stopping!

And that hair of Kim Sung Yeol’s bad vampire concience.

Dislikes: Argh that secret plan (recipe) wasn’t that clear! After a long time looking for it, they only got information on ingredients without the proper instruction. Hm, quite useless.

Crown Prince mum who was staying in the monastery was too made up haha! Sorry couldn’t help.

The ending wasn’t explained properly.  I just don’t understand why Kim Sung Yeol disappeared after defeating Gwi? And they pulled a Faith-like ending without much sense! Hello the tree!

mask kdramaSummary: Byun Ji Sook has that unfateful day when everything wasn’t just working for her and she had to choose between dying and living but had to wear a mask. She chose the latter and had to pay the price for being someone she’s not including breaking the hearts of those she loves most.

Genre: Romance, Melodrama
Episodes: 20
Stars: Soo Ae as Byun Ji Sook / Eun Ha
Joo Ji Hoon as Choi Min Woo
Yun Jung Hoon as Min Suk Hoon
Yoo In Young as Choi Mi Yun




Likes: Interesting and very thrilling plot! Though it had some obvious holes in the story, the thrill just made up for them. A very good drama I definitely recommend.

Great casting. I love the lead actors starting with…

Soo Ae – very beautiful and a great actress. She nailed Byun Ji Sook’s character; scared but later became courageous, pretending but staying genuine, pretty and lovable. As Eun Ha, though it was short-lived, she was fierce, smart and elegant!

Jo Ji Hoon – his character was a bit lost in the beginning but he carried it well. He looked pretty much like on drugs ;). I love the way he would look at his wife, full of admiration and trust. And how he gets indecisive so not to show his real intentions. It was soo cute!

Yun Jung Hoon – oh how I hated his character, always plotting and scheming and brainwashing! Very convincing! Only shows the actor was great in what he was potraying.

Yoo In Young – how can you be so beautiful, tall, elegant and good in acting. She’s definitely a total package! Potraying Choi Mi Yun is an opposite to how she appears but still convincingly did it.

Undeniable great chemistry between Byun Ji Sook and Choi Min Woo. It was more between the characters than the actors.

I have to mention how everyone was well-dressed in this drama. Especially the ladies. Soo Ae shines with whatever she wore.

I love how they showed off how rich is really rich. The house, the cars, the parties, the servants in uniform, the hobbies, the clothes but a messed-up life ;). It’s cliche but still love it!

It’s a melodrama but manageable to watch. There’s more to it than just crying. I personally don’t like too much crying, it’s exhausting but this one is very-well balanced.

One that balanced it well was its funny scenes and the presence of some comical reliefs.

A good variety of places where they were shooting. Notable ones are the cliffs, in front of the city hall where the leads kissed, the forest where they went hunting, the vacation house and more. They bring reality to the story.

It ended well. After all the tragic things that happened, we got a happy ending. It ended with a good closure to everyone’s character. I’m happy with it!




Dislikes: As mentioned above, there were some obvious holes in the story just saved by a good amount of thrill.

Too obvious premonition! They were showing too much of what was going to happen. I just knew it!

My Rating: 9 stars! (10 as highest)

producer kdramaSummary: Baek Seung Chan is a rookie producer in KBS. He’s learning his way how to be a successful producer but assigned in a team which is doing a long time show but not just raking the desired ratings anymore. He made friends with his seniors and became the interest of a famous pop star Cindy.

Genre: Romantic Comedy
Episodes: 12
Stars: Cha Tae Hyun as Ra Joon Mo
Kim Soo Hyun as Baek Seung Chan
Gong Hyo Jin as Tak Ye Ji
IU as Cindy




Likes:   It’s educational! Suddenly I’ve learned about what producers of a show are really doing behind the scenes. And of course not to forget all those people under him. The never ending politics and business behind every show. Are we making money? How’s the rating? How’s the censorship? Do we have a teaser to impress? Do we have interesting people in the show? Have we edited it well? Or captioned correctly? Hm, definitely, a learning experience.

But what I like more is the comparison of a production of a show to stories of each characters. Pay attention to the title of every episode.

The cast is awesome! Just looking at who’s in the show makes you think right away, this is gonna be big. We’ve got Kim Soo Hyun, Gong Hyo Jin, IU and Cha Tae Hyun! Let’s talk about each one…

Kim Soo Hyun – I always anticipate his next drama. He’s a great a actor and watching him here taking a different role only shows he’s not stereotyped to be just the handsome, rich, prowerful guy. He did pretty well!

Gong Hyo Jin – she’s always Gong Hyo Jin. It’s either you like her or not and I happen to like her a lot. She’s a pro, she’s very natural, no sign of intimidation.

IU – oh wow, she’s pretty as a doll here and I like her role as a bitchy and complicated popstar. And her voice, even when she’s only talking, is very sexy. Wait until you hear her sing.

Cha Tae Hyun – first time seeing him in a drama. He’s actually very charming!

If you pay close attention, plenty of cameos from well-known celebrities. Let me enumerate who I remembered most… Jang Hyuk, Lee Seung Ki, Sandara Park, Go Ah Ra and Seo Hyun!

The show was quite funny. Love the sexy Kim Da Jung, the HR lady and that mascular guy, Cindy’s manager and lots more.

One good thing about unrequited love… I love how Tak Ye Ji  would look at Ra Joon Mo, Beak Seung Chan would look at Tak Ye Ji and how Cindy would look at Baek Seung Chan!

I love the ending. It was very promising that my preferred pairs would end up with each other. So I’m happy :).




Dislikes: It was just 12 episodes but each one lasted for almost 2 hours. Too long for an episode. What’s wrong with coming up with an hour-episode and in return come up with a higher number of episodes.

There were just too much talking in the beginning that I first doubted it would be a good drama.

It was hard to watch Kim Soo Hyun getting rejected. Not so used to that!

My Rating: 8.5 stars! (10 as highest)

hwajung kdramaSummary: It’s a story of how Princess JungMyung, daughter of King Seonjo survived and lived through the reigns of 3 kings; King Gwanghae, King Injo and King Hyojong during her lifetime. With her powerful influence she managed to defeat strong political enemies like Lee Yi Chum, Kim Ja Jeom and Kang Joo Sun.

Genre: Period, Political, Romance
Episodes: 50
Stars: Cha Seung Won as Prince Gwanghae
Lee Yeon Hee as Princess Jungmyung
Kim Jae Won as King Injo
Seo Kang Joon as Hong Joo Won
Han Joo Wan as Kang In Woo
Jo Sung Ha as Kang Joo Sun
Jung Woong In as Lee Yi Chum
Jo Min Ki as Kim Ja Jeom




Likes: During the whole tenure of the drama, I’ve been going back and forth wikipedia and some other sites and blogs related to the historical background of the drama and I say they come very close to some historical facts and the existence of important characters throughout the drama.

Princess Jungmyung – though she really existed during the time, her fierce character as what was portrayed in the drama didn’t probably hold the truth. But as the ominous princess in the drama, she shone through an entire generation that spanned through reigns 3 kings. Her power and  influence that shake the most powerful political enemies and even kings themselves put her in a position that no female royalty could probably attain during that era. Her love story with then husband Hong Joo Won is a lovely kdrama touch in this serious splendid political drama.

Gwanghae vs King Injo – I’m all for Gwanghae. Though not even given the King title but he was definitely more reasonable than his successor.  He was always willing to sacrifice (specially his pride) all for the sake of his country and people’s safely. During his reign he achieved a lot and manage to avoid possible wars. King Injo on the other hand was portrayed in this drama as lacking, insecure and even cowardly.
Actors Cha Seung Won and Kim Jae Won are both superb choices for the roles.

Most powerful political enemies…

Kang Joo Sun – he’s got to be on top of this list for he was already active even Gwanghae’s time. Powerful and wealthy, former mayor and palace official, he controlled the businesses in Joseon. He had connections to Ming and later Qing. Owned several houses with private armies. This guy was definitely deadly!

Kim Ja Jeom – a master of manipulation. He made King Injo his puppet. Basically ruling the country during King Injo’s reign. He worked hand in hand with Jo Yeo Jung (Consort Jo) , definitely a deadly tandem!

Consort Jo – Joseon’s deadliest lady. Rumored to have poisoned crown prince Sohyeon, son of King Injo and the heir to the throne. A favorite of the King and Kim Ja Jeom behind her back, she could do whatever she wanted.

Lee Yi Chum – his greed for wealth and  political power lead him to do the deadliest acts. He was behind the murder of crown prince Yeongchang.

Kim Kae Shi – her words are valued by Gwanghae. She does everything, poison here and there just to keep her precious Gwanghae on the throne. She was the ears and eyes of the palace. She just knew everything!

This drama has lots of heavy crying moments. Not that I like crying but they were so well-acted and convincing, you get to appreciate the whole sad scenario.

Dramatic exits, lots of them too but the most memorable was King Injo’s. I thought he already died (death bed scene already shown) but next scene he still managed to scold his officials and officially declare Hyojong the next King!

Favorite quote: “Once you sit here, you will also suffocate from its weight.” King Injo to his son King Hyojong.

Ending is a justification why King Hyojong had a hard time ruling.  Always staying close to historical facts.




Dislikes: The last 2 episodes were weak.  It  lost its momentum though the ending was okay.

Dirturbing lighting. So disappointed with this. There were indoor scenes that appeared like a 50’s movie with too much lighting directly on the faces. Just poor.

They casted someone who looks like she had too much botox on the face. That doesn’t match Joseon era.

After 10 years…. then, after 8 years… the men just grew beared but didn’t get wrinkled. Our princess still looked the same 18 years later!

My Rating: 8.5 stars! (10 as highest)

sensory couple kdramaSummary: After a tragic accident, Choi Eun Sul later known as Oh Cho Rim lost her memory but gained something extra-ordinary in return. Her one eye turned colourful and she could see smell through it. She later crossed paths with the young policeman Choi Moo Gak and helped him solved crime cases using her ability to see smell.

Genre: Fantasy, Romantic Comedy, Thriller
Episodes: 16
Stars: Yoochun as Choi Moo Gak
Shin Se kyung as Choi Eun Sul / Oh Cho Rim
Nam Goong Min as Kwon Jae Hee
Yoon Jin Seo as Yum Mi




Likes: It’s refreshing to watch something a bit different. I love how they visualize smell… all those cute icons floating in the air :).

Two funny and bubbly main characters are great addition to what’s already an interesting plot. It’s great to see Yoochun doing something funny again. I think it suits him better than doing serious roles. Nothing to dislike about Shin Se Kyung. I think she’s a great actress and she did a good job portraying Oh Cho Rim.

Though I love the 2 main characters, the supporting roles and the actors themselves are no small time. Nam Goong Min is wow in this drama! Watch and you’ll find out why :)! Yoon Jin Seo, I thought I’ve seen that lovely face before. Oh yeah I was right, she was in my favorite “Old Boy”.

I love crime solving stories. It’s no Sherlock Holmes but it’s a good break from my usual kdrama love stories. They put much thought on each murder case which made an episode interesting to watch.

The police force was very entertaining. I like that guy who had a Russian girlfriend. Him saying her name was always cute.

I like how the lives of our 2 main characters entertwined. Sure, it was tragic but these 2 made a way to be together in the end.

Dislikes: There were just scenes that I found silly. Like practicing and performing that skit. Once would have been okay but I think they did it thrice. It was too much!

Some obvious clue that there might still be trouble. Underestimating Nam Goong Min’s creepy character. Of course he’s Kwon Jae Hee, the very handsome, hot, sexy, celebrity chef in the drama. He won’t die that easily.

My Rating: 7.5 stars! (10 as highest)

Heard-It-Through-the-Grapevine kdramaSummary: Seo Beom, a bright, young student from a poor family got impregnated by her equally young boyfriend Han In Sang whose background she didn’t even know. She planned on raising the child alone until Han In Sang found out and right away wanted to take the responsibility. Seo Beom found herself suddenly introduced to a very powerful and rich family, very different from her own.

Genre: Family, Romance, Black Comedy
Episodes: 30
Stars: Yoo Joon Sang as Han Jung Ho
Yoo Ho Jung as Choi Yun Hee
Lee Joon as Han In Sang
Go Ah Sung as Seo Bom




Likes: It’s a very well-written script. What’s really impressive is to come up with something almost surreal but at the same time has that realistic feel. Anyone can easily imagine or even relate to the situation, that’s how realistic it was.

They paid so much attention to details. The houses of both families… This is how rich this family is and this is how the other family is struggling. The houses have characters that match those families living in them. It’s that kind of detail. And not to mention the wardrobe, if you pay attention to these, it can’t be missed.

I love the atmosphere. Almost silent. Not much music in the background. It makes the conversations more realistic, as if you’re just observing people talking.

I’ve got to give credit to the director and / or the producers for making everyone look like very good actors. Everyone came out very natural!

And talking about actors, Yoo Joon Sang along with Yoo Ho Jung are just great. I think they totally nailed their characters. I liked seeing Lee Joon once again. He was cute and adorable in this drama. Go Ah Sung is one of those promising young actresses, she was great! Love to see her again in another drama.

The rest of the actors and their characters were all awesome. Everyone was noteworthy!

The politics in this drama is awesome! I thought I would only see that in Sageuks. Oh lots of manipulations, all those thread pullings were so entertaining.

And of course it was funny! It’s a black comedy afterall. Every episode has always its funny moment and always accompanied by that funny music. You’ll know what I mean when you watch it :).

Dislikes: The consistency of keeping it simple left me wanting more on the ending. I know it started like that, it went on for 30 episodes like that but I was waiting for a bomb ending. Oh well I can’t have everything, can I?

My Rating: 8.5 stars! (10 as highest)

shine or go crazy kdramaSummary: Prince Wang So known as the cursed prince was destined to be the successor to the 1st king’s throne but only if he would get married to a princess that would serve as his light and guide to be a true leader. Without knowing, he married a former princess who has that fate but right away separated from her without even seeing her face. After a few years, their paths had crossed again and began to fall in love.

Genre: Period, Romance
Episodes: 24
Stars: Jang Hyuk as Wang So
Oh Yeon Seo as Shin Yool
Lee Ha Nui as Hwang Bo Yeo Won
Im Ju Hwan as Wang Wook




Likes: I always love a historic setting and seeing Jang Hyuk in prince costumes makes me always swoon. SWOON! Love sageuk and love Jang Hyuk!

The story got me hooked from the very beginning. Characters were well introduced – who’s the good guy – what are his potentials, who are the baddies – what bad things are they capabale of doing… made me interested in each one of them right away. Well done!

Too many pretty faces in this drama. Not that I’m complaining, in fact, that made me always look forward to another episode.

As mentioned in my pre-review, the chemistry between Wang So and Shin Yool was overwhelming. 2 great looking leads who very well complemented each other.

That interesting showcase of powerplay seen in most sageuk drama is once again in this one and I just loved it! How can they all be beautifully sneaky?

Excellent sword-fighting scenes! But when it comes to fight, my favorite is the princes’ tournament. This is where the
ladies are hooked (right?).

The characters, let’s dissect the top ones…

Prince Wang So – very well portrayed by Jang Hyuk who I think lost weight to exactly look like a poor swordsman then later, an old king (barely recognized him but he was still sexy). I love how Wang So fell in love, changing from a very focused leader to a child-like personality and I love how he would stare at his lady love. To top it all, he was funny, strong and brave!

Shin Yool – I always wonder how this delicate and beautiful being survived in that era. Yes delicate, beautiful, smart and very wise. She was just too lovable. No wonder why princes and generals were smitten by this beauty.

Prince Wang Wook – Oh dear, though he was competing against Wang So, he was definitely a top contender. Towering, good-looking, can fight but seems gentle and every inch a prince, a proud prince [swoon]. I love the music that’s being played everytime Wang Wook is in the scene, it’s light with a tinge of sadness.

Princess Yeo Won – I like the lady. She wasn’t the typical evil other princess but a beautiful, politically motivated, smart and powerful person. She was definitely giving it a fight to be on top. No nonsense. Just no love life for her, it was the price she was willing to pay.

Everyone else did a great job. Special mention to Wang Sik Ryum (the evil uncle), the brother king, Seo Won (sad for his tragic ending though) and to my favorite, Shin Yool’s brother who was funny though always causing trouble.




Dislikes: I don’t really like the ending. No matter how I think of it, it was a sad one. Realistically, Wang Wook would choose to be king (like how it was shown) and sacrifice his love and ended up as an old king who always longed for his lady love (as shown how he kept those memorabilias in his secret room). But what I don’t like most is to confuse viewers with a “there might be a happy ending” scene. I just don’t understand the very last scene. Was that a “what if” or he really lived as a king and went to see her from time to time??? For me, it’s either a Titanic ending or not, nothing in between.

I was disappointed how that battle ended up. They were talking about an army so big but couldn’t show that much. As what Shrek says, “You and what army?” Sorry but I expected an epic battle scene.

They could have been more creative with the title. It just doesn’t sound sageuk.

My Rating: 8 stars! (10 as highest)

kill me heal me kdramaSummary: A third-generation chaebol, Cha Do Hyun suffering from multiple personality disorder seeks help to deal with his illness and met a young psyciatrist, Oh Ri Jin in the process. As they try to work together, grim secrets from the past started to get unraveled while also discovering that they both originally knew each other.

Genre: Romantic Comedy, Medical, Mystery
Episodes: 20
Stars: Ji Sung as Cha Do Hyun
Hwang Jung Eum as Oh Ri Jin
Park Seo Joon as Oh Ri Ohn
Oh Min Suk as Cha Ki Joon
Kim Yoo Ri as Han Chae Yun




Likes: Simply put, an excellent drama! Let’s hear out why?

Great script! This is undeniably the best storyline I ever had in a kdrama. The twists are great, they never fail to surprise me. Every episode was a bomb. I thought oh okay, the great secret has been revealed, nothing interesting left but boy the surprises never stopped until it finally ended. I kept on saying, Oh my, that’s why! (with goosebumps of course)

Great director! It’s obvious, the story won’t shine and the cast won’t either if it wasn’t directed awesomely.

Great cast! Ji Sung and Hwang Jung Eum is definitely a success pair. I love them both in Secret and was glad to find out they collaborated again. There can’t be any other choice than these two for this drama especially Ji Sung who did a FANTASTIC performance of all 7 characters. Also the supporting cast couldn’t be left out, everyone was just great!

Great personalities! I love them so I’ll talk about every single one…

Mr. X – he appeared last so I thought oh there’s no need for him but when his identity was revealed, I had goosebumps again :).

Nana – she’s one of the biggest surprises here. Oh that name revelation is still giving me goosebumps!

Ahn Yo Sub – I just wanna hug this one a lot. So young, so talented but so depressed :(.

Ahn Yo Na – this girl will make you crack up! So funny! And Ji Sung oh Ji Sung, you did such a great job with this one.

Perry Park –  I lurve the accent! But I think what I like about Perry Park most is the story behind why he existed.

and last but not the least, my favorite of them all…

Shin Si Ge – the looks, the style, the voice, the confidence, the no-fear attitude, the temper… he was just sizzlin hot! I almost fell off my chair when he got his parting gift from the lady love. I’m terribly terribly missing him. Shin Si Ge dear, you made a really great rival!

Great OST! That awesome song which is always played at the right moment and makes my heart beats faster. Yep the one with the rapping :). I don’t understand a word but it sounds really great.

Great ending! Though it had come to the end for the personalities that I started to like, they’ve been given so much value in the drama assuring they’re gonna be missed. It was a bitter, sweet one but done so well.




Note: No dislikes for this drama. I love it and I’m giving it a top rating, same level like my all-time favorite Secret Garden. So there you go…

My Rating: 10 stars! (10 as highest)
