  1. wah…. finally there is someone who rate capital scandal higher. I’m happy to see it, It’s one of my favourite drama, despite It’s flaws. Sun WOo Wan is still My Kang Ji Hwan’s favorite role to date!

  2. Whoa, you’ve watched a crapload of dramas. You could give Blue unni a run for her money. Heehee. Never actually checked out this page until now, so I decided to comment! Funny, I’ve been watching Kdramas since 2005, and yet I haven’t even completed a hundred of them. Not unless you add Jdoramas and Taiwanese/Chinese ones to the mix as well. But I’m getting there. Eventually. Like by the end of this year, I hope to have completed my one hundredth Kdrama. 🙂

    1. Hmmm, I’m having writer’s block!! T_T I’ll try to come up with something short? But Koala has done such a wonderful job summing up the drama I’m not sure mine would add anything valuable or insightful.

  3. Will you be doing a series wrap up of QIHM? I haven’t watched it but heard mixed reviews on the ending. The rabid fans loved the ending whereas others (Koala incl.) who didn’t care for fanservice thought the writer mucked up the ending.

    1. The ending was OK, I didn’t hate it, nor did I love it to bits either. Thought some of the mechanisms used were rubbish incredulous, but I took them in which much more stride than expected. Overall a 8/10 drama. 🙂

      And nope, no review at the moment. I’m currently trying to get myself together, just got back from a tiring vacation. Will most prob start with lil stuff and updates on myself. Haven’t seen anything in 2 weeks, doubt I’d have anything to begin writing with. :/

    2. as for me-the passerby- i think the ending was ok-it was well wrapped up-…..well since the plot is like that and the episodes is only 16 so… that’s what the writer can come up with and i wouldn’t want to watch something more complicated than that…spoiler alert here!!!….even though most people says that bong doo goes back to the present day because of the phone call but i’d like to think it is because hee jin….hee jin memories and hee jin longing of him….hee jin must has felt something is missing in her life and that’s why she regain her memories and bong doo can come back…..

  4. Wow… and I thought I was picky with dramas :/ I realize ppl have different opinions, but really? Dream High 2, IRIS, Athena, Fugitive Plan B, and Me Too Flower (HIGHLY underrated despite the bad last episode) all UNDER 7/10? They should be all AT LEAST 8 (ESPECIALLY IRIS and Athena) :/

    But glad to see History of a Salaryman (another HIGHLY underrated drama) getting some love :))) The corrupt back and forth fight of wits in this intelligent business drama reminds me A LOT of Glory Jane (called Young Love Jae In on Hulu). Totall on the same level as Salaryman; I’d totally recommend it 😉 NOTE: from the title card, it seems like a baseball drama, but it turns to a business drama quickly into the 1st episodes, when all the good stuff happens 🙂

    1. Nah, it’s really personal preference and how you approach dramas. Might not appeal to me but totally not gonna judge if they appeal to others ;D as long as you’re happy watching! 😀

  5. Whahhh.. I’m surprise you rate Gaksital 5/10? May I know from what episode you decided to stop watching it? What your main reason you rate it 5? Don’t worry, I won’t be feel hurt. Because honestly, when re-watched this drama, I found some major plot holes that I can’t ignore that make me annoyed and makes me dislike the drama completely (It makes me appreciated THE DEVIL much more). You may wonder, how can a drama that u start fallin in love with end up make you hate it so much completely in the end? hahahha
    I have watched some bad drama this year, and while i find some plot holes, there is an element that I love from those drama and they didn’t ruined it and kept me engage instead. Actually It’s easy to please me this days. LOL… But Gaksital rub me the wrong way… I kept thinking is it just me who are the weird one that think Gaksital is not that awsome?

    The only that I enjoyed this drama is Shunji’s transformation (even I know his character is too violent, but His transformation actually makes sense to me.. Maybe because I can relate to his cause?), who I think one of the few element that well written, Some interesting character, Park Ki Woong, and the Ost…. kkkkkkk

    1. I stopped at 6 or 7? Story’s actually OK, granted I didn’t watch far enough to know whether it flowed or developed well. I stopped mainly because I couldn’t stand the overload and overwhelming OTT by the actors. Every scream every expression of Kang To in particular (sorry Joo Won babe) bugged me to never-ending oblivion. Cudn’t sit thru no more of that. yikes.

      1. haha. is it when KT decide to become gaksital? Or when his whole family died? I find the acting for some actors over the top as well. Even Ki Woong at first being OTT when his character started to change into an evil character. though IMO it fits with his character who felt frustated for catching gaksital. I don’t mind OTT acting though. Because Ki Woong actually give his character so much depth and his nuanced acting helped me to understand SJ. and funnily, i think Jo Woon start underacting when his character become a good guy, lol.

        About a plot holes…. Actually just like City Hunter, if u can ignore and didn’t care with some plot holes, u will find gaksital very entertaining. Maybe it’s just me but actually plot holes i dislike so much started around epi 8 i thing. I kept felt uncomfortable with the plot. This is where I find my self no longer agree with the writers. I want to stopped watching, but i kept hoping I’m wrong and the writers just didn’t want to brought up this issues yet and want to save for the final episode. God… How i realized it never happened and instead make it worse?
        sorry for the rant i just want to explore my frustation, I don’t know where else I can express my dissapointment with the drama. there is no way I write it on Soompi, I can get abuse button instead lol

        I just felt frustated they didn’t acknowledge About a psychological crime Kang To had been done to Shunji. It makes me appreciate the devil and Prosecutor princess that brought up this issues and akcnowledge it as one of criminal acts. Am I being extragerrated? Since it just a drama right? Why i take it seriously? Huhuhusometimes i hate myself for being picky in some aspect.

  6. I jsut watched 1-3 , 14,15, 16 alone in love. No one with sane mind waste their time on serious slow friggin drama. Well acted but its utter waste of time. I wonder all your rating is flawed twisted some way.

    For me Secret (2013) is number 1 drama. I like fast paced drama without forced plot to extend episodes and good acting drama.

    Based on that ur 10/10 would be slower than death drama i think.

    1. Guess I must have been mad then (along with other AIL lovers). But each to his/her own, I have my own reasons for putting AIL on top, and of course I also respect your personal rating/preference. No need to judge what you’ve not seen eh?

  7. Where is spring waltz. I watched few more dramas in last 2 weeks. 🙂
    Love rain , Shining inheritance , spring waltz , i am suddenly han hyo joo fan. 🙂

    Also watched crappy heirs , some part of masters sun , protect the boss , flowerboy next door , romance town,

    Most dramas start well then writers add fillers to extend episodes thats where dramas go from good to bad.
