User Reviews

Excellent K-drama!
12 November 2013 | by overseer-3See all my reviews

I loved this K-drama about high school kids pursuing their artistic dreams, and I'm a 55 year old woman! The soundtrack was awesome, and toe tapping, good for dancing! I even bought the CD on Amazon.

Dream High was on Streaming Netflix but for some unknown reason they recently removed it. I am so glad I got to enjoy it before it was taken off! You can still see it on the DramaFever website but it's not as much fun when watching on a computer instead of a 60 inch HDTV - plus unless you pay monthly on that site to take the ads off you are interrupted with them on DramaFever every ten minutes. Annoying!

I particularly enjoyed the story of the fat girl who lost weight in order to be taken seriously by her peers. Her transformation was beautiful.

The boy I liked the best ended up winning the girl in the end, but that was hard because the other boy was very nice too. I felt sorry for his character, he was obviously still in love with her.

Apparently there is a Dream High 2 sequel but none of the same cast returned so I will not be bothering with that one. I am not sure why they bother doing that -- bring back the same cast whom people felt close to the first time around.
