Please have respect for my opinion and others; everyone is entitled to their own opinions. :)

Please post!

ok so what is your definition about good drama? I think everyone has his/her opinion about their fav dramas. Some dramas are good in your opinion, but maybe those are bad in others. I never use the word "overated" for any drama.

Fashion 70's wasn't underrated...was it? I thought it did fairly well in ratings and had a decent amount of followers on the net, maybe I have bad memory.

Anyways, right now, its only been the first week and ratings are not bad but I'm kind of sad 'Goodbye Solo' ain't getting the attention I feel it deserves. Other than Kim Minhee, the cast is fresh and especially Chung Jungmyung...talented. This drama is so different, but in a good way. From the characters and to the plot, its thoughtout so well and its raw, natural, quality work. The writer always does this, in which you have all these love stories going on, but its really about watching all the characters grow and how they interact with one another. For me, it don't get much better than this. And it has a nice mix of melodrama and some cute funny scenes. I hope after somet ime, it gets more recognition.

And other ones...Punch. I don't know why, but this drama is still one of my favorites. Joo jinmo and Shin Mina are just great actors. And I don't know...in some ways the plot was original and in some ways it was sort of weird but I love it anyways.

Overrated dramas...I do agree with Winter Sonata. But when it aired in Korea it wasn't that huge...it was after it got to Japan and who knows why it exploded there. The first episodes were memorable but I wouldn't have expected it to have been as huge as it is now.

And although it has many loyal followers at soompi...Full House. Other than Bi and SHG's great chemistry...the plot...yeah...there wasn't anything there to work with. And do people really like Bi's character? He was so mean. And he acted so much better in Sangdoo. I remember in Sangdoo I was so surprised at how well he acted. And no drama has yet to match that role. But the drama was funny. I never finished it but I got a hold of the DVD's and skimmed through. The scene where SHG has to carry the grandma was priceless. This drama is a good laugh...but way overrated.

And like hanaxkim said...this is just my opinion^_^ I guess I just have different tastes in dramas.

I've read that many people think that My Name Is Kim Sam Soon is overrated.

In my opinion, I think it is a very good drama. It is realistic and many people can relate to the characters and the story. It is very different from the other Korean dramas that I've seen. There's no real evil supporting character who constantly tries to snatch away the main character's lover, and no one dies at the end because of some disease. Also, it gives women hope that when they're 30 they can still find their "prince". :)

I thought that the storyline was great, and the actors/actresses who portrayed their characters did an excellent job.

My Name is Kim Sam Soon was definately overrated. I mean it was a good drama , but it was kinda boring to me. The things that happened seemed too relistic. Like I could see the same thing happen in my neighborhood. Of course many others like the drama because it is.

It has a really fresh plot while mixing in the whole "oh no! I've lost my memory" cliche and the celebrity cliche. Okay, so its a lot cliche, but the characters are fun and the jokes are fun. It deserves to be at least looked at.

I agree with "A Love to Kill" being overrated. And I'm the biggest BI fan in the world! I thought the plot was absolutely wonderful but the pace of the drama was slow and towards the last 10 episodes, i was nearly falling asleep just watching it and WAITING for it to be over. Both were great actors, but the pace of the entire drama was boring and dreadful.

I personally thought "Wonderful Life" was a little underrated, same with "Resurrection/Rebirth". But that's just my opinion

This is just your opinion of good vs bad series. Under vs over does not determine the quality of the series.

She knows it's just opinion, that's why she marked 'MINE:' and 'Please have respect for my opinion and others; everyone is entitled to their own opinions.' in that post. She just wants to know what others think.

I agree, A Love To Kill was overrated. It started out pretty good for me, but then it just started to drag.

Goong too, don't kill me Goong fans, this is just what I think.

I want to watch Delightful Girl. :lol:

Underrated:

1) Love Letter w/ Sooae and Jo Hyun Jae ... I really liked this drama but it got like no attention!

Overrated:

1) Kim Sam Soon ... Yea I enjoyed it but it wasn't good enough to me to obsess over. I don't understand why people went like wacko over it. It wasn't THAT good.

i started watching Hello God but unfortunately wasn't able to keep up w/ it. i definitely will give it another go and finish this series though. from what i saw in the earlier episodes...it's very interesting. and from what i keep reading about the rest of the series...both the story and the acting here are really good. i can't wait to find out for myself how good this series is...although i don't want to have high expectations incase that ruins it.

and yes, i thought Fashion 70's was underrated too...but then i realize it's ratings were pretty good actually. and here on soompi, i think before the crash there was pretty good discussion about it...and lots of support for it too.

overrated / underrated...i think i'll need to watch more dramas to be fair on that. :lol: very interesting to read everyone's opinion though.

I totally agree and I really liked the cast in this one! I thought it had a really good concept and was very entertaining. :) This is one of my favorite dramas.

Recently, an underrated drama would be Tree of Heaven (I think it's becuz it's falling in Goong's shadow which already has a huge following). I think the acting is really good in this one even though the story isn't all original.

As for overrated drama, I would have to pick Full House and Winter Ballad. I really liked the cast in Full House, but I didn't think it was SHG and Bi's best roles individually (and I'm a fan of both of them). Also, the storyline had a lot of fighting between the two and not enough lovey dovey moments (I'm a sucker for romances! :P ). Winter Ballad was just draggy for me. I think because by the time I watched it, there was so much hype that I went in with too high expectations... :(

i think stairway to heaven is really overrated. the beginning was really good but it kinda broke down in the end.

its like all the drama endings mixed together. a marriage, a life threatening disease, a suicide, and to top it all off a death at the beach in the arms of the man you love. sticking to one ending would have been so much better.

Wow, you and I have the same tastes, Hana. XD I haven't even watched all the dramas on that list, but it seems like we do have the same taste, haha. Maybe I will start watching the ones you put up there. :)

I definitely think Chunhyang is underrated! It's my favorite series so far and I'm kinda disappointed that people don't know about it as much.

Umm, I also thought MNIKSS was overrated too. I guess it's good in the sense that the story is realistic and all that stuff, but it wasn't very fun to watch. And er, I also think My Girl is overrated. I thought it it was too slow and it seemed like they just dragged out the story for 16 episodes. Nothing exciting really happened. I think the only part I really liked was at the very end when Han Chaeyoung and Jaehee made a cameo. It was great seeing the couple from Chunhyang again. XD

stairway to heaven 's overrated

Appolpai - i agree w/ you even though i'm a fan of my girl, and enjoyed it... it kinda dragged at the end... i wanted some more originality...i have to say it's overrated. perhaps, i've been watching too many korean romantic comedies...

i think delightful girl choon hyang's and super rookie are underrated

and i do like hello god, even though i've only watched one ep. but it good!! i can't believe there aren't many ppl talking about it.
