People I know run from injustice and hurt others to protect themselves but you are different from the people I know.
A crush is not bad, it is painful.
~Shin Woo Hyun
Just say that it hurts when it hurts. Don’t lie.
Why are humans acting like that? They do what they don’t mean to.
~Lee Seul Bi
I seem to be becoming a monster but I can’t help it.
Leave when I let you. If not, I may hold you back.
~Hwang Sung Yeol
Love is to feel each other’s pain and even share each other’s pain.
~An angel who became human
Does love make your tears warm?
If you don’t wait, I will just have to wait for you to come back.
~Yang Tae Ho
I am sure it gets as warm as how much you love someone.
High School Love On (2014) 爱在高中
Genre: Fantasy, Comedy, Romance, High School
Enjoyment: 10/10 Pace: 9/10 (at the start, 7/10 towards the end)No. of times I watched it: 2
As it goes, I especially liked the sweet couple/ high school lovers, Woo Hyun and Seul Bi. It does not drag long before they are together maybe because Seul Bi is an angel and is very sure who she likes. Woo Hyun who only has her by his side treasures her a lot as a result. Also liked the interaction between Woo Hyun and his grandmother as their interaction is filled with love as they care for each other and rely on each other, hoping that they can be together forever. Loved Kim Sae Ron’s acting in this drama! Nam Woo Hyun acted well for his character’s emotional struggle, though towards the end the plot exaggerates it too much and makes it quite unrealistic. For about the first half, I enjoyed the drama a lot, the pace is just right, there seems to be a purpose in every scene and each episode is packed well.
However, it becomes slightly unbearable when Sung Yeol and his stepmother keep separating them and when the senior angel tries to hurt them out of jealousy (which angels should not have in the first place). It may be due to it airing once a week that makes it worse. Haha. Did not know that high school love can be so deep and even related to life and death…
An angel who managed to become human is very funny when he pretends he cannot see angels or ghosts and even knocks against the senior angel nose to nose and pretends nothing happened. I am very touched when all the classmates stand up for Seul Bi by wearing a yellow ribbon/band on their wrists. If a suspicious person touches the mark on her arm, she disappears. At that time, everyone is suspicious of Seul Bi as the mark on her arm shines so they come up with this plan to build trust and help Seul Bi. On a side note, the students really utilise the sick bay well and can go there whenever they want (including skipping lessons I suppose). Haha.
