I voted for life-altering, not that it altered my life in a dramatic way...but some drama, u watch and forget...but full house, it left a permanent thumbprint on the entertainment portion of my heart...
This is one of the sweetest drama I watched, ok, let me rephrase that, this is the sweetest drama I watched and it currently sits on my number 1 spot among all the videos i've seen in my life...
I know if u analyze the plot, script, etc., u'll see some repititions and flaws...but i wanna ignore all the technicalities...because if u enjoyed and loved it, that's wat really matters...there are other dramas/movies which are so beautifully done but after 20 hours of staying with its story, it betrays u, and leave u feeling so awful in the end...
but full house, it brings the it-factor every
episode...and u can bet ur money on it, that it will entertain u till the end...
Also, the actors are included in the charm of this series...I cant see anybody playing Ji-eun and YoungJae except for Bi and SHK...I can just mentally picture them when they get into those mumbling-verbal wars,
You'll love them both not just one for his/her "cuteness". So when u think "Full House" it's going to be Bi and
SHK, and I think that's wat chemistry-between-the-main-characters is all about. I as an audience would wish that they could be together for real
I think everybody should see full house-old and young, men and women, married, single or divorcee...they'll all go "aja aja fighting" after watching it
I'm so in love with this drama, I wish I could put it inside my pocket so I can reach for it whenever I want to
I agree 100%
Personally, I'm suprised by SHK's performance. I didn't think she'd be able to pull off a comical role, definitely didn't expect it; and I'm sure I wasn't the only one who thought that she and Bi would make for an odd couple -- but they don't! They're geat together, they look good together, romantically and comically, they rapport incredibly well with each other.
Full House is one of the most fully produced shows I've seen with one of the most well-resolved endings. The final episode is a true coda to the story. What can I say? I loved the Karaoke scene, the barbeque lunch scene, and the last stretch of flashbacks was more than welcome. Every joke is memorable- they have identity. And if the jokes recur throughout the series, they are not merely repetitious: The circumstances around them change; the show, the characters, their relationships, all move in a definite progression; each of the relationships and their backgrounds are developed well and resolved well. This is much more than I can say for other shows I've watched. I also like how there are no real manipulative characters in Full House. Hye-won turns out to be a genuinely pitiable character (I could truly sympathize with the feelings she was going through in some of the episodes), and I was glad to see that Full House didn't take her in the direction of evil-girl cliché... well at least, relatively speaking they didn't, right?
And what about Bi? Sangdoo wasn't impressive to me and I only minimally enjoyed it. Bi was "ok" there. In Full House, however, he owns the set in terms of acting. Every facial expression, every minute detail of demeanor, I thought, synced extremely well with the story and situations. I am totally impressed by his performance.
If I had to criticize the show, I'd say it could have been an episode shorter... though I'm not too sure about this. How does a story exposition elements relating to Young-jae's career, his background and relationship with Hye-won, her relationship with Min-hyuk, their relationships with Ji-eun and else, and close all of that out, without being cursory about it or without losing its sentimental and comical value? 16 episodes just might be the magic number. Criticizing otherwise, there is that fashion thing... It's easy to be patient with it actually, but I have to admit they made for a mixed eye-sore.
Anyway... my tedious review and yada yada aside, Full House, in my opinion, is a must-see rom-com, far better acted and written and funnier than the average K-series. And it finishes strong. I voted "life altering," btw, though of course it's not really life-altering. But, as some posters have expressed, it will be difficult to enjoy other shows after it. That says a lot about the quality of the show and, surely, we're not newbies. We're seasoned drama addicts, by now we've watched many series (and movies, and anime) from many countries.
