The cinematography might not be the best at times but the sublime acting really makes you forget about it. The leading actors (Lee Min-ho in particular) were phenomenal and the story was extremely captivating. I highly recommend investing in this emotional journey!


Great korean drama. In our modern world every people is almost the same: busy with work, feeling strangers between others, like we were robots. So, even if we have technology and many other things which could keep us busy with our mind , we'll never be able to communicate, to 'live' as we were able to before, where internet and many other things didn't exist...

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
