    This is my favourite Asian drama, I'd seen many before watching this, and I've seen even more after finishing this, but no one comes close to Mars.

    First thing first, Mars isn't a fluffy feel good drama, it handles serious issues like rape and suicide.

    If you do decide to watch it, it has an amazing storyline, the good girl and bad boy meet and fall in love, but there are many more layers to their characters than one would expect.
    The best thing js that both characters show growth, it isn't just the guy or the girl changing, they both grow together.

    The performances of Vic Zhou and Barbie Hsu are so good that at times I had to remind myself that they were just

    I watched this show for Hyun Bin after watching Secret Garden. I'm glad I watched it after watching Secret Garden because I don't think I would've watched that show the same way after seeing My Name is Kim Sam Soon. It's not that he's a bad actor (in fact, he's a very good one), but the character he plays I found to be really mean. Despite that, I found this drama to be very entertaining. I'm not sure if the writers meant for it to have cruel humor or if it's just me. *Side note, if you want a charming romance, don't watch this; it's exactly the opposite, which is what I think makes it so great. The enemy itself seems to be the men around read more

    This is one of those dramas that has a lot of fans yet isn't necessarily popular, so I was really intrigued. I was actually ready to drop it after the first episode, but I'm glad I stuck to my '5 episodes before dropping' rule this time. The Episodes went from being boring to keeping me on the edge of my seat really fast. The combination of Time Travel and Mystery got me hooked, even though the characters and romance weren't as impressive to me. This drama definitely left me with mixed feelings, but no regrets after completing it.

    I'll start with the romance, which is really the heart of the story, but was my least favorite part. Although the romance was written well, I just never

    Best. Drama. Ever. The writing was the most concise and moving. The love story the most convincing. The humor was top notch and clever (Jun Ji Hyun was the funniest female character in a drama I've seen). The chemistry was unmatched. The couple the most adorable. The consistently excellent plot line and dialog never wavered. The love between Min Joon and Song Yi was palpable. Each episode grew the relationship and was thoroughly convincing. The writers didn't hold back on the emotions growing stronger and pulling us into those emotions.

    There were so many clever dialog scenes at the end of each episode where the protagonists spoke directly to us that helped us understand something that had happened within the episode. They were wonderfully illuminating, funny

    Wow where do I begin with this drama?

    Well let's start with the fact that this drama ought to be deemed as a CLASSIC in dramaland. It is not classical in the way in which it is filled with accidental kisses and nonsensical tragedies but it is classical in the way that all the emotions involved and expressed in the drama were universals. They were still relevant to me as a viewer despite the fact that the drama was created TEN years, a decade ago. Oh did I mention that this drama pulled me out of a slump and has become a trigger for my recent Taiwanese drama obsession phase? Anyways, the psychological states, questions, and statements of Qi Lou, Chen Ling, and Sheng were so

    Hana Kimi was my first J-drama and I can honestly say I couldn't pick a better one for an introduction to the world of dramas.

    This show is a crazy comedy with occassional serious moments. It has a romantic subplot (several of them actually) but imho the romance isn't particularly explored/developed here. Which is not a necessarily a bad thing, since it's a show about friendship among schoolboys.

    The cast is outstanding and hilarious, especially Ikuta Toma as Nakatsu who practically steals the show for himself. His inner monologues are legendary and they make Hana Kimi a true gem among dramas.

    I could go on and on about superlatives here, but I feel I should at least briefly address some of the problematic aspects of the

    This drams was slow paced but towards the end if every episode I just kept on wanting more. It was slow but not boring each character had their own problems. It was a good mixture of stories 50 episodes seamed short since there were a bunch of issues in this drama. I loved the male lead's acting when he was sad you could actually hear his voice shaking, I don't know if he does that naturally or it was acting. The whole cast had good chemistry. I loved it

    I never thought that I would ever rate a drama of 100+ episodes "10/10".

    I mean that's hardly impossible. Usually, long dramas must contain few boring episodes. But this is an exception.



    PPL WHILE WATCHING THIS DRAMA I WAS ALWAYS THINKING WHY DID NO ONE RECOMMENDED THIS ONE TO ME?!


    - The story is unique and addicting (will get you attracted from the very first episode to the very last). All the stories(including sub-stories) are interesting and never fails to entertain you. 133 episodes and you won't skip a minute.

    - The acting is really good that whenever they cry, I do. Whenever they laugh,I laugh as well. The romance is so effin attracting that you can't get enough of it. Drama's love never touched my

    I Loved this drama from start to finish! I think the description should be changed though - as Ha Ryu (PHJ) is not someone who would do ANYTHING (a.k.a kill someone) just to get ahead and make money, he truly puts PEOPLE first and cares about every customer! He is such a sweetheart, so nice and kind - I love him to pieces!!!!
    I loved the Insurance girls (Da Hae) character as well, I could really relate to her feelings for some reason during the whole drama.
    Jae Hee got on my nerves a lot - not because she isn't a nice person because she was, but when someone hangs around someone you don't want them to hang around, it can irk you lol.

    While I do believe this drama is a complete masterpiece, set out to keep you from endless nights of no sleep, it does end with a bit of plot holes filled in a messy manner.
    The character's ability to capture the audience, especially Do Min Joon, is very well written and always keeps me on the edge of my seat.
    The ending is rather disappointing as I had high hopes, so it didn't live up to the overall amazingly written plot from the beginning. It felt like they slapped a bandaid over a battle wound. At least that's my opinion.
