Likes: The whole story wasn’t that bad and thanks to a very good director for a very snappy execution of the script. I would have gotten bored if it wasn’t fast-paced. Well vampires do move very fast :).

The notable side characters or cases in the hospital like the little girl Na Jung, Sister Sylvia, the father who had liver cancer whose wish was to walk her daughter to the altar on her wedding day and the secret of the chairman and lady director. I may have missed some more but my point is there was some diversion that made the whole show less boring.

The chemistry between the leads wasn’t that bad. It was awkward at first but it was justified by their kiss.

Koo Hye Sun, I just love her. She has improved a lot since her BOF days! That pale skin of hers is vampiristic! (Though she wasn’t the vampire).

The villain’s acting is superb! It made the lead’s lack-of very obvious.

I lurve LUVVY! I want one too! Omo, omo… And I love his creator too, Hyun Woo! He was always energetic, bubbly and happy.

I love the OST. It gives the vampire chills but at the same staying true to kdrama :).

The ending that I like though I didn’t understand how he made it… the Kochenia epilogue!

Dislikes: Ahn Jae Hyun, I know his looks could pass as a vampire but the acting was just too poor. He needs to practice more on his facial expression. It didn’t help that he was surrounded by good actors and even a good director couldn’t hide his lacking. He’s got potentials but too early to be a lead star.

The ending that I didn’t like… why oh why they have to kill Hyun Woo! Now LUVVY is an orphan. Eottoki!

And that stupid move of Ji Sang to avenge Hyun Woo, leaving Ri Ta behind and ended up being cornered by the vampire director. Argh, so annoying!

My Rating: 7.5 stars! (10 as highest)

angel eyes kdramaSummary:  The story of a blind girl who gained back her eyesight but lost her first love. After 12 years, he was back and she was in love with him again but dark secrets would stop them from being together.

Jung Jin Young as Yoon Jae Bum
Jung Ae Ri as Oh Young Ji

Likes: If you like a good cry then this drama is for you. It’s definitely one of the best melodrama I’ve watched so far. The story was sad, no maybe even tragic and that was well-conveyed to the audience. Plus Koo Hye Sun’s crying was always convincing, you just want to cry with her. Lee Sang Yoon, aside from his admirable looks (height, very proportional body and a handsome face with a dimple) is really great in crying too. These 2 leads were convincingly good on being sad :).

I thought this drama was getting draggy but I think it’s actually made that way. Everything was so detailed, from the prologue (2 episodes with the young Dong Joo and Soo Wan and these youngs characters were from time to time appearing throughout the drama), the main story and to the epilogue which was 1.5 episode long. As if writers explained in detail what pain and heartache really are and they would want you to understand that.

The “what if story”! As I’ve said it was too detailed they even show what would happen if … All happy and my favorite is of course the wedding scene!

I love the characters of the 2 leads (so as the actors). It’s good that they got great young actors who are comparable (to the main leads) to portray the young Dong Joo and Soo Wan. Young Soo Wan especially looks like young Koo Hye Sun.

As for the other guy, Kim Ji Suk looks great here. He definitely gave Lee Sang Yoon a good competition. Hm, 2 great guys competing for our good old Jan Di, huh!

The presence of Seungri! It’s always fantastic baby! He was definitely the best comical relief in this drama.

It’s good to see another island getting featured. A good break from our favorite Jeju.

Not necessary but I’d like to mention I really like Soo Wan’s lovely house! From the story, it’s understandable why she doesn’t like to go back. Too many sad memories.

Love the OST specially the “run run running to you” song :). Couldn’t help but sang-a-long everytime it was played.

Dislikes: The ending. I would like it just a little bit different.

My Rating: 8 stars! (10 as highest)
