    All Fears Cast Aside
    I'll be honest. I've only seen a handful of Asian dramas but I hear that once you start you just can't stop, and that seems to be the truth enough for me. My obsession started with Bad Couple, blazed through Coffee Prince and now has landed on Soulmate's doorstep.

    Going into it, I realize I was not prepared for the emotional impact that Soulmate would have on me. Like many people, I'd asked ...

    Brilliant Soundtrack Compliments Soulmate...
    Thoughtful analysis of romantic relationships from every point of view ( I like how they shuffle through the future and back to the present). Funny..... because it made silly jokes that are easy to relate with. The characters were acted out perfectly to suit the mood and style of the drama (which sometimes means they overact, but it makes for good comedy) Most Korean dramas are quite predictable ...

    A must see - Very funny
    This is such a wonderful series, and a very pleasant surprise.
    I'm so glad I decided to watch, having initially avoided it because the plot description didn't sound appealing to me.

    It is very funny throughout, especially in the beginning while still developing characters.
    Lots of hearty laughs there...

    Later episodes have their fair share of touching moments you can't help but ...

    Director trashed the timeline
    My one major critique for "Soulmate" is the director's abuse of time line sequencing for scenes. The pacing of the drama changes dramatically after the "climatic meeting" and it NEVER goes back. It's basically like going for a bike ride through a meadow then suddenly hitting a massive down-slope. Although the series is marked at having 21 episodes, they were so short at times it felt like I was ...

    Acting: Horrible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I am currently watching this and plan on continuing because of eye candy and something to accompany me while doing other things. (Characters are eye candy.) HOWEVER!!!!!! The acting? Oh god, the acting? They perform acting equal to elementary. They fulfill their script and expressions, but how horrible it is. I'm sorry, there are only 3 actors/actresses who are actually good. (Not even excellent) ...

    "Soulmate" is my soul mate... ^.^
    I've seen quite a few Korean dramas, but none has caught my attention as much as "Soulmate" has! It' a refreshing break from the heavy, serious-sided shows and has lovable (and hate-able) characters and great music! This is definitely a comedy, but also a great tear-jerker. I think of it as a more romance-centered version of BBC's "Coupling" - with better-looking actors. :P

    I strongly ...

    An excellent exploration of relationships
    Accompanied by one of the best soundtracks I've heard on a television drama, Soulmate is an in depth exploration of relationships and the connections that people have. With acting that is at times over-the-top corny and others poignant and real, the characters manage to accurately portray the entire range of emotions people feel in various situations and relationships in a way that will ...

    Soulmate is just remarkable with an amazing soundtrack...
    My friend was asking advice for what drama she should watch and when I stumble on a certain link to Soulmate, I got very curious (or really bored). The small opening sequence was intriguing, having suddenly showing partially nude characters to me but the music covered up nicely. At first, I knew I was going to expect some sappy, typical, romance story to this drama and which I did, but I seriously ...

    Loved the drama, ADORED the music!
    This drama was great. Once you've managed to live past the first couple of episodes that is. It's such a drag at the begining :'-(
    But it gets so good later on when the story everyone REALLY wants actually begins. And the music - oh god the music - is phenomenal! But overall the drama's a great watch, so don't give up on it.
