I thought this drama was the weakest out of the "Bad" series (Family > Housewife > Couple), and the main reason was because I didn't like the two leads as I thought they were very incompatible. But there were some good moments and I absolutely love Choi Jung Yoon (the housewife), man she was cute! ...

After eps. 15 & 16 of Bad Couple, there's an ad/preview for a drama that looks interesting, but I have no clue what the name is! There's a girl in a wedding dress, running & being chased by an unattractive guy, then as she's walking down the aisle to marry him, someone shouts something and she runs ...

Just finished watching this, and enjoyed it very much. Many thanks to everyone who worked on it! I was hoping for sooo long that the doctor husband would end up ALONE, and the housewife & the model would end up together [sorry, I'm really REALLY bad with Korean names (>_<)] so nice to see it actuall...

The premise of Yukan Club is superficial and shallow, the rich kids are selfish idiots suffering the woes of being able to do and afford anything, the plot goes nowhere, and the mysteries are below Scooby Doo level. But I did laugh consistantly, sometimes at it rather than from it. If you're basica...

Finished watching last night... LOVED Myong Ryong and watching his evolution from thoughtless smart-ass punk to thoughtful smart-ass prosecutor. :lol I especially liked that he didn't go totally respectable & still had some of the same attitude as when he was in high school. Just about the time I wa...

Does anyone think that the whole Keito issue is exaggerated? (Like her sister being bullied, her being looked at very differently because of her acting failure.) As I recall - and it's been quite a while since I read the manga, plus I'm waaaay behind on reading it - in the manga it's made MUCH more...

First of all, are you sure your torrent program is set up properly? I don't know what torrent program you're using and I'm NOT an expert at any of them so I can't really give you advice, but there is a lot of information out there about getting the program set up, ports forwarded, etc. to maximize y...

I've managed to fight threw all the dramas I've started but 2. <snip> Binbo Dashi. I love Oguri Shun but that character angered me so much I just couldn't take it. I don't know how far you watched, but Binbo Danshi does get better after the first few episodes...not *great*, but better, and Oguri Sh...

Binbo Danshi - watched Ep. 1 but I find people who are *that* stupid with money irritating rather than comical, so I'm having a hard time getting back to it Iryu - watched Ep. 1-2, but it's a lot darker/more serious than I really enjoy, so again, having trouble getting back to it... I wouldn't say 1...

Also remember that makeup that looks good on stage or on camera is not always going to look that good in the "real world". :blink

Overall I thought this was a very well-done drama, but... I could see the plot "twist" coming from miles away, which was kind of disappointing. The site where I originally read a description of the series said something like "even if you think you have it figured out, the ending will floor you", but...

I voted "other"... Nobody I know really teases me about them, though some people just say, "uh..." and give me a blank stare when I say I watch Japanese TV. The responses are much more interesting when I tell people I'm trying to learn Japanese so I can read manga! :roll My mom is mildly interested ...
