This is a drama of moments. What do I mean? I mean it is a drama of really cute scenes, that will probably go down in cliche drama history. Unfortunately what this drama isn't, is fully thought out. Cinderella and Four Knights started off with a strong premise; promising a tough female lead and four male leads with very different personalities. However, somewhere down the line these things were lost. The show got a bit stale, by EP 9. I found myself skipping through to the cute parts. It felt as if the writer(s) had gotten lazy. As a disclaimer, I'm usually a huge fan of sappy, cliche, bubblegum dramas. I guess I'm growing up. I'm not saying this drama was bad. It is fine for what it is. I'm just not a fan of unrealistic happy endings… anymore.
A MUST WATCH: Skipping this drama would be a disservice to yourself! REVIEW: Sometimes laughing while crying can soothe the heart. Dear My Friends is the kind of drama that does just that. When I first saw the trailer for this drama I expected a stunning comedy of the mishaps of the elder generation, and I got that. However I did not foresee the strong tangents between the lives of these lovely characters and my very own. I did not expect to cry for two thirds of the drama. I didn't expect them to hit so close to home. I'm literally in awe by the sheer talent of these seasoned actors/actresses. For me DMF Is reminiscent of the classic Joy Luck Club (and if you haven't read that book or watched that movie you need to). It is absolutely moving. The characters are super lovable and it gives you another outlook on life and those of your parents. FIVE STARS! Don't miss it!
Too muddled for me. Don't get me wrong, the acting was great, I just had a problem with the premise of the movie. From the beginning everything wasn't very clear. The setup for when the detective came in was a bit obscure. I'm also not big on plots with no true "villain" and no true "hero". However I will say the ending lives up to the title. The movie wasn't terrible, but it wasn't what I would call "re-watch" worthy either.
