One of the better dramas I've seen. Interesting to see a romance show without a real love triangle too, which made quite a change. The story was surprisingly good, with a lot of variety and enough twists and turns to keep you guessing. It features one main love story, then one sub-plot, which doesn't get too much attention. In fact, the supporting cast could have had a lot more - since there read more were some really great characters. I definitely feel like the show could have used a few more episodes to really get to grips with everyone - I'd even go as far as saying it would be great if it were double the length! But unfortunately the rather premature ending leaves a lot of loose ends, which is a real shame.

Like many dramas, it's effectively split into two parts, although the second 'half' is quite rushed. Things are predictable at times, but quite intriguing at others, so it definitely kept me watching until the very end. Character development suffered a little, with only the leads making much progress. Some of the supporting cast get a little bit, but it all feels a bit shallow and forced.

The acting was generally quite strong. It seemed a little weak in the first few episodes, but it got exponentially better as it went along. Casting was also really well done and the only issue I can really think of was Eric Li, who wasn't very impressive.

For once, I know enough about the music to pass comment. I found it really good. A lot of classical pieces, mixed in with some modern, up-beat songs, which was a nice balance. The editing wasn't perfect at times, but it was bearable. I'd definitely need to go back and rewatch it to find out some of the songs used, since they were pretty catchy.

Rewatching in general though... maybe one day. It wasn't the greatest show, but the characters and plot were interesting enough to make me want to see it again at some point.

At the end of the day, I'd definitely recommend it. The main problem really lies in the fact that there were just not enough episodes, so that should clue you in as to whether it's any good or not!

This was my very first drama. I watched the anime and when I saw a live action drama I just had to watch it.
The plot is very amazing! I love how each character developed as the series went on and how each character changed. I know some people wouldn't want to continue after a few episodes cos of the main guy but please give it a chance and continue. It gets read more better. I guarantee it does. Since I watched the anime and read the manga, I already knew what to expect. It was better than I thought it would be.
I can say that this version is different and is the best in it's own way from the other versions. This is light, cute and fluffy, while the Korean version is a bit more fierce (haha) I could not stop laughing while watching this version and the Taiwanese version is more romantic and it feels more real cos they improvised a lot more.
I didn't really dislike anything about this drama cos the actors, they did exactly what they were supposed to based on the manga/anime. They found great casts to portray the characters and I loved that. I'm glad they didn't take the acting and exaggerated it (like faking). It was just refreshing to watch.
The music was good and it set the mood for each scene in the show.
I definitely rewatched this a million times and never got bored. I love his drama so much!!!! It was a never ending rollercoaster of emotions, from sad to angry to giggly, but it was worth it! I am happy to see these characters lives being continued in season 2! AHHHH I CAN'T WAIT FOR MORE EPISODES! The suspense is killing me!!! YUKI FURUKAWA AND HONOKO MIKI ARE SO CUTE!!!! Perfect couple~
The feels for this J-Drama are so real! FANGIRLING OVER HERE! hehe! ~~~~

As a person who watched the anime and all related specials and also reading the manga - I expected sooo much more. It's too rushed and not well developed. Well I am usually too critic so maybe that is an opinion a majority would disagree with :))

I was so impressed with this drama, that I finished watching it in less than 3 days. This drama filled me with awe that I decided to write my first review. I've never felt an urge to review any drama before. I always avoid melodrama genre, but this one got me hooked. Firstly, I fell in love with the plot, It's pretty exciting with bitter-sweet moments, you'll always feel like something is read more about to happen. Every episode ends with pure excitement & makes you eagerly wait for next one .

This TV show is real tear jerker. Hats off to Writers, Actors, Director, Music-composer, Editor. I fell in love with the characters, beautifully portrayed by all actors especially the 3 brothers [main leads]. They have done justice to the plot with their great acting skills. I fell in love with director's cinematography & eye for nice shots, I fell in love with background music that correctly fits every scene & moves your heart accordingly so that you can feel the character's emotions well. I loved how they carefully edited every scene and how smoothly & beautifully whole plot unfolds. 26 episodes seems like a lot but I promise you that you wont be bored, In fact you'll wish that this drama never ended.

I gotta say Kim Jae Joong is an wonderful actor, who is HIGHLY underrated... Everyone notices how good looking he is, how great his skin is etc etc etc but honestly I admired his acting skills a lot. He is PURELY TALENTED & GIFTED, of course blessed with great looks as well :) I wish more producers/directors can notice this fact about him being talented, gifted actor & cast him more in upcoming dramas. I wanna watch more of his acting.

Anyone who is contemplating whether to watch this drama or not, Just go for it & give it a shot, I bet you'll fall in love with it & enjoy it as much as I did :)

Temptation is a strange story. It isn't necessarily about an affair. It is the story of a couple in a desperate situation that make desperate decisions which changes their lives forever. One woman turns from sweet to bitter while the other turns from cold to caring. The men's characters pretty much stay the same. I'm confused as to why I watched this and found it interesting. I found that my opinion on read more the characters of this drama is very different from the opinions of other people.

I have read countless comments of symathy for Na Hong Joo played by Park Ha Sun. I'm probably the only person that finds her character to be at first fake, then bitter and hateful. I don't for a minute buy into the thought that she was ever sweet an innocent. She forgets that she started the chain of events with her desperate action. What did she think her husband would do knowing that he caused her to take that desperate act over money? She made Cha Seok Hoon played by Kwon Sang Woo do something that he would have never thought of doing except that he knew it would save his family monitarily. Then when he tried to make it up to her and prove his love, she turned away from him. To top it off she goes on to blame him for the misery she creates herself and becomes a bitter bitch that I just can't stand. Now, I don't for one minute believe that Yoo Se Young played by Choi Ji Woo is blameless. However, I don't think she is the evil crazy bitch that everyone seems to think that she is. I think she was lonely and bored. She says she was testing them, but I believe she just wanted what they had for even a minute. However, the writer turning her into a victim is stupid and doesn't fit her character as a strong successful woman. Now, for Kang Min Woo played by Lee Jung Jin. I find no redeaming characteristics in this narcissistic jerk who treats women like objects and has no respect for people in general. I can't stand him. The other actors are fine. If you like C.N.Blue, then you will enjoy Lee Jong Shin's part as Hong Joo's brother.

The music is excellent.

I probably won't rewatch this.

I'm not sure if I recommend this drama. Watch it at your own discression.

Do you want to hear a 2nd Opinion on this drama : ) ?

Ok, Let’s see, why did I like it :

A – Actors: I DO LIKE how fresh and dare the roles is for both main Leads, sure I am a fan for them together and separately and I do believe they are very good actors, However , to accept a role that you might be judged upon from read more viewers as unfaithful husband and a cold hearted home wrecker women, this is intimidating ..

B – Storyline : The fact that there is no Black and White zones, it’s not villains and angels show, so if you are looking for a show like this, most properly you wouldn’t like this one , However this show beautifully mirrored how a human can change , grow to love, grow to hate , grow to be insecure even in the strongest relationships..

C – Most viewers who started the show , completed it even though they didn’t like it , sure for different reasons, but I would put this kind of drama on my drama list for sure , it got the factors that builds every good drama , good storyline with slow paced development..

D – The soundtracks , I needn’t say more, it’s purely addictive :) and well played..

Finally , the ending seemed realistic , reflecting hope , although I was quite sure the last 5 episodes could have been more invested and more detailed to enrich the ending more .. it left me feeling that may be 2 more episodes are needed.

Go ahead and watch the drama if you want a mature realistic romance

I expected a drama that would take on a serious subject and truly develop the story and characters alone the way. I expected there to be a lesson for those of us watching and could take to heart. I left this drama feeling very dishearten and disappointed. Instead of being called Temptation, it should have been called Sandcastles.

I was disappointed that the writer introduced subject matters but never discussed or addressed read more them. The story was very disjointed and the characters did a 180 degree turn in personalities. I personally ended this drama hating the leads with the exception of the wife. The writer stated this was not a reunion for Stairway to Heaven, but I have to strongly disagree.

This drama is truly a case of putting lipstick on a pig. Some will find it cute, I found it very ugly and disturbing because it was missing a moral core. There was no one to say, "this is wrong". It was the worse drama for me out of the 7 or 8 hundred I've seen.

One of the most unnecessarily aggravating dramas I've watched for a variety of reasons. I only completed it because the episodes were relatively short and there were only 11 of them. Though I did groan, after episode 10 when I remembered I had 45 minutes to go before this ride was over.

First, the leads had awkward chemistry. In the beginning, it was ok because they had just met, but later it read more just became strange to watch. Don't get me wrong, it did have a little to do with the obvious age difference, but I could have gotten passed that had there been real sparks between the two which would have made their need to be together all the more powerful. Alas, I didn't see or feel any fireworks.

Second, I wasn't sure if the main couple's actions were spurred by noble idiocy or mere idiocy. Reasons behind most of their actions were seldom clear. In addition, their reactions to all the supporting characters were often murky. I kind of think that had more to do with the writing and direction, than the acting, but subtext was sorely needed and missing. Additionally, the leading lady's acting often seemed forced and less believable than the leading man and supporting cast.

I don't want to scare anyone away from watching this, but I don't want anyone to have high hopes since previous reviews seemed to be glowing.

Since it was set in 1999, I tried to remember that a LOT has changed regarding attitude and treatment of women, marriage, and gender roles, but coming from the present day mindset it was a challenge. Mostly because although the social commentary was obvious from several character's points of view, I never fully accepted that this was also supposed to be entertainment, which I kind of expect when watching a drama.

There were some lovely moments, and seeing how much has changed over the years was interesting to watch, so I would recommend this show for someone interested in watching an older drama in order to study the gender roles and social norms of those times.

When I first read the synopsis of this drama I thought it was going to be like the rest, but boy was I wrong. When you watch this drama of only sixteen episodes you get so invested in the story that you just want everyone to be so happy, or some people I should say. While watching My Girl I would laugh and I would cry and want to be a main read more character in this beautiful story.

Story: 9.5/10

My Girl easily deserves an amazing rating for its beautiful story being told to our eyes. I remember watching the first episode and I could tell that this story was going to be something special, the way that the story unfolded was something I haven't watched in a Korean drama in a long time. When you get so invested in this storyline everything goes by so smooth and fast that you're sitting at the end wanting more. All the romance and hilarious moments that had happened in this drama made you either say awe to making you laugh till you can't breathe anymore.

Acting/Cast: 9.5/10

My favorite part about this drama was most definitely would go to cast and the acting. Watching My Girl I would cry when the characters would cry and laugh when the characters laughed. The two main actors Lee Don Wook and Lee Da Hay played their roles perfectly, whenever they would cry you would just want to jump into the screen and give them a hug because of their amazing acting abilities. For me the actors did a spectacular job of luring you into the story and making you want to cry like a baby. And I am just going to point out that Kim Se Hyun was so absolutely annoying, anyone with me?

Music: 9/10

The music for me was a lot of fun to listen to, whenever any of the songs would come on I would rock out to them and pretend I knew all the words, and sadly listen to them on repeat on Iphone.

The End: 10/10

The ending for me had me in tears, I loved the ending that so much I kept watching it on repeat over and over again. The ending for me is probably in my top five favorite drama endings.

Rewatch Value: 9.5/10

I'm just going to say that I have sadly seen this drama four times, so as you can tell I have rewatched it a lot, but what I can say is that this drama is incredible and so beautifully done. In the end you should be finishing this review and be hopping over to watch My Girl as soon as possible.

If you have watched this drama I would love to hear what you guys thought.

This was my very first Asian drama I'd ever watched. I first checked it out around 2012.
Yeah, it's pretty cheesy. I started out hating it when I first started watching it. I thought it was ridiculous and immature. The fighting scenes are terrible and the monsters as well.
As it goes into the middle part of the series, it gets more interesting. Sure, it's still ridiculous, but you look past it. read more And yes, it did take about 20 episodes for me to get into this show!
They cast Usagi really well. I really like this adaption of Usagi. More mature, but still happy as can be.
Rei was fine, but I don't particularly like the others. Minako is irritating and I want to slap her when I see her. Do not like her!

I think the acting from some of the cast was great actually! The music was VERY repetitive though. The cgi is decent...not bad not great.

It's a favourite show of mine. I'd gladly watch it again and again.

Before I begin, I do not understand why people consider this an average police drama. I have not seen a lot of police dramas and I enjoyed this drama. I am also a huge fan of Yonekura Ryoko because I have now seen 3 of her dramas, so it was good to see her in a different role. I thought the story was good as well as the cases they had to read more solve. I thought the cast did a good job. Especially, the Chief of the team and his lead negotiator. I do not re watch dramas often and I will not re watch this one, but I will watch season two and the movie. If you are a fan of problem solving without violence, reading people, female empowerment and predicting how things will end, then, this is drama is for you.

it is good drama but I prefer Hana yuri dango as the plot is more interesting and what I see Japanese drama is more hyperbole than Korean one but the song and the actor/actress the boys before flower is the best.
