My brain isn't working. It been so long since I last seen this drama and while typing this blog post here and researching on wiki and other websites, thoughts came into my head but it was more of me trying to remember how the drama went. This was a good drama and I love all the characters, but honestly, I remember watching this drama thinking 'I hope she ended up with Taecyeon' reason why, because he is my biased, but more like, I just didn't like Kim Soo Hyun character that much in the beginning. But as it goes on, we all know who she choose but I still think at the end of the drama, my heart still tug toward Taecyeon. IU and Wooyoung characters, were to die for. Love this relationship connection between them and I wanted more, after the drama ended. I didn't care that much about Eunjung character, because at some point in the drama, I sort of hated her character. But at the same time, I wanted them to make up and become friends again. There is Dream High 2, which I honestly don't think it live up to the first one, but in it one perspective, it was good because of all the other great things that happen.

Rate: 9.5/10
