One Blogger rated B++.  I'm so annoyed. CLOY deserve more than a B++. It was my first kdrama...so this series definitely set the bar high. I watched other recommended high rating series after and I can't say they are better than CLOY. 

Reviews are always subjective..

But I found this site where the person is from the States and has watched hundreds  of kdramas including those which were aired almost two decades ago.. Guess what..she gave CLOY an A+.. Although the review is not that elaborate cause you know everything is already said so many times. Still I liked many of the points she mentioned as a veteran kdrama watcher http://www.kdramalove.com/CrashLanding.html

However I don't agree with all of her other A+ dramas...but for CLOY I  agree totally..

Even I have watched around 60-65 kdramas but CLOY has set the bar so high that I have not been able to finish a single series since CLOY ended.

Don't feel bad due to someone's difference in taste.. People have certain preferences but what matters the most is that the majority of  opinions are in CLOY'S favour . One more point..with the increase in hype, people's behaviour tends to become elitist and they will try to scrutinize it brutally. However CLOY overcame all of it and its journey is still going smooth. Cheer up!!:)

I think I know which blogger you are referring. She is actually one of my favourite reviewer for dramas and I usually am very in line with her reviews. For CLOY, if you read in detail what she wrote, she actually love the drama but found there was slow-pace in the middle of the drama. Some also felt it, but that's OK. Preferences are subjective. To me CLOY is A+. :D  And it is A+ in many many viewers hearts. Most importantly it has moved the hearts of so many people from all over the world, and the impact is not just on the drama itself but also the whole of Kdrama cuz many started getting into Kdramas cuz of CLOY. How much bigger impact can it get? CLOY has given another BIG LIFT to the Hallyu Wave! Legendary indeed!

 

@eLizza  Thanks for the link of the CLOY review! Wow, the blogger has really watched a LOT a LOT of Kdramas!! Her list of reviews is amazing! Will go read that up. If we go to MyDramaList, most of the reviews (around 166 in last count which is one of the highest for Kdramas) are really positive and with solid reasons why. And the ratings are also still very high even with more than 10K people rating it. High viewership and high ratings! Just shows how great CLOY is and how loved it is!

Hello again! I actually thot CLOY ending was PERFECT!! I felt super satisfied when I finished the finale, esp that lovely epilogue showing their life in Switzerland after the reunion. Though I wish there was more and more and more, but I felt the writer did it just right! If it was too prolonged, it will become cheesy and loses some of the magic. Some audience may even question different details and rationale of an overly long post-life story (unless it's like a special episode). The way the drama ended, with the swelling theme music playing as the camera pans out to the scenery of Switzerland hillside (forgot the name of the place) just as the couple kissed, was just perfect for me. After that, the audience all swoon and start imagining the life the couple is leading. I also love all the little details of the NK comrades and ahjummas, and how they hinted that F4 knows what's happening with RiRi (ie their reunion and annual meet-up in Switzerland) and I also imagine that they update the ahjummas about the couple too. Lovely little touches!

 

 


Hmm, I am trying to recall all the dramas I have watched or am now watching post CLOY. Firstly I rewatched CLOY 2X lol!! In the midst of that, I also watched The King Eternal Monarch (so-so and confusing), Hospital Playlist (love this!), WOTM (stressful but good), Hyena (lots of fun), IC (not bad esp the beginning) and Still 17 (heart-warming). Currently watching When My Love Blooms (quite good, a bit slow but v romantic) and kinda following Mystic Pop-up Store (but it's not grabbing my attention). I did try Dinner Mate for 2 episodes and I thot Seo Ji-Hye's role looks really interesting and so spunky, and SSH looks quite good too. But I haven't had the urge to continue....is it good? I may pick it up again later. 

Yeah I do gobble up Kdramas pretty fast. And I might be getting a bit bored with what's available....Soon my urge to rewatch CLOY will come again. I just rewatched Inception cuz it's gonna be taken out of Netflix by end June, and it was just before I watched The King finale. Quite a contrast...

 

ADDED: Oh yeah, forgot that I also just complete The Last Empress starring jang Nara. It was a lot of fun and really enjoyed it, despite it being very makjang. :D  Just have to suspense logic and go for the ride. Well made drama and acting were all on point.

@MsHoon2219  

I am really so surprised that CLOY was mentioned in that Australian TV show. So unexpected LOL!!

 

And that long academic article was full of great info and how CLOY made an impact in different parts of the world. It was really left a cultural impact and seem to have re-ignited the Hallyu Wave for K-dramas. Hope this will continue on! 

 

@ElectricHearts Thanks for the tweets! Great to see other American actors/ artistes loving CLOY.

 

 

CLOY is really breaking the language/ cultural barrier for Kdramas in US and many other countries. Of course other korean imports like Parasite and K-pop also laid a good foundation. But CLOY is probably the first Kdrama to gain so much attention in US. Hope the cast and crew know about this and are very happy and proud!

Haven't you watched Chocolate? ah you're missing something then! I also started HL but hvnt cont'd just yet! I've been kinda joggling on old dramas these days & just haven't even gone back to the latest epi of DM!

Oh wow!! Was reading the thread of this Washington Post's Beijing Bureau Chief  (Anna Fifield) who recommended CLOY, and one of those who replied was the British Ambassador to North Korea (Colin Crooks) saying he watched it too!! Seriously, a lot of very influential people and experts in their area, esp media and academic studies, are so fascinated by CLOY and only has praises for it!  I am SO SUPER PROUD as a fan of the drama!!

I might try a 3rd time CLOY rewatch after taking a break. I seem to have reached a Kdrama plateau and now watching Hollywood movies in Netflix, some are rewatches (Inception, John Wick, Julie & Julia, Salt, The Spy) and some are catch-ups (MIB 3 now). I think I need something exciting or funny right now. 

 

What's the hide icon wae wae? You lost me there LOL!! I've heard great things about Chocolate but not in the mood for melo-slow moving drama. May catch it one day when in the mood. I'm waiting for the new Kim Soo Hyun drama this 20 June on Netflix - hope it's good. The female lead (not familiar with her) looks gorgeous and acting seems good in the trailer.

Hi to all,

 

An avid fan here of CLOY. Sigh. I can't get over this K-Drama. It's been 5 days now after completing the series and tears still keeps flowing (I keep watching clips from different episodes). Please help me to move on. Can anyone please suggest a new drama series to watch? I can't find any that is as good or better than this show. I have tried the Descendants of the Sun, but I couldn't stand the lengthy dialogue so I stopped (didn't even completed Episode 1). Appreciate your response. Thanks.

Hello... welcome to this family...We have been like this since February..:tounge_xd:..Trust me it is really hard to move on from CLOY and most of us are maintaining the post drama condolence period of six months subconsciously. I haven't finished bingewatching any drama after CLOY and that's why watching live shows as I soon get bored or start comparing it with CLOY. CLOY really sets the bar so high..

If you don't have any problem with ongoing dramas then you can try" It's okay not to be okay". The chemistry, acting and the cinematography are awesome but the story will give you chills. (available on Netflix)

Even Seo Dan is starring in another show called Dinner Mate and it made lots of CLOY reference. (Available on Iqyi)

As for fantasy genre, I m watching Mystic Pop up Bar and it will be ending this week .So far it is funny and entertaining.(available on Netflix)

 

On a side note ,CLOY domination goes on..This time it is from Italy

CLOY continues to dominate fearlessly, I felt giddy when I saw some famous personalities in the US being hooked into this, HALLYU wave brought to us by BinJin, PJE, director, the greatest supporting actors and the whole CLOY Fam! I remember when SYJ accepted an award in 2018 (apologies which award was that, I just remembered her black dress) she mentioned that she hopes to bring back the Hallyu wave right? She did! I'm apparently obsessed checking all the ratings CLOY have in different websites, platforms, and media, I feel a little competitive about this :D . I've read the scholarly article on CLOY, I was touched by all points raised. I hope to hear more articles coming out from different parts of the world to proudly cheer to our all time favorite Kdrama (well for me :sweatingbullets:):dorakiss:

Here's another great news about CLOY popularity in Japan. NHK, which is Japan's biggest channel and is national TV, did a 6-min feature on CLOY!! That is really amazing!!  If someone here can understand Japanese, will be great to have a summary of what was said. Content likely similar to previous Japan news reports, but in case there's any new info in this NHK program.
