    LIfe is Beautiful…… I was really amazed of your very natural cool acting in this drama….Amazingly perfect acting! I was really move in episode 20 and 21 when – Yang Tae Sub – decided to reveal his true identity to his family….you really made me cried in this episode…!!!
    Song Chang Ui as Yang Tae Sub and Lee Sang Woo as Kyung Soo should have win a perfect couple award….you both done a SUPERB and Award winning acting in your role…. You can really see the feeling of the character you both portray! That’s how Professional Actor really like.!! Congrats to both of you…Its a must drama to watch for! A very wonderful FAMILY Story – a not so perfert family tree but with those family members around makes the family PERFECT! This drama made you laugh and cry as well…I Really enjoyed watching it regardless of a very long episodes .. it does’nt give me any boring moments!
    Lee Sang Woo – You should have won a recognation too as Excellence Actor Award in “Life is Beautiful” along with Song Chang Ui. You both has that charisma of moving the viewers with your GREAT ACTING! I Believe in both of you….It’s really a JOB WELL DONE!!!! I really like the character that both of you portrayed! Though in other people’s point of view its not normal to fall in love to the same sex but in that character you showed to society that everyone is capable to fall in love whoever you are! It doesn’t matter if that love is in opposite sex or same sex! As long as you are happy and you are true to yourself!! A very great great acting! Scriptwriter Congrats too, for bringing such an awareness storyline…..!!!

    Try watch it! Highly Recommended! Congrats !!!!

    congratulations for “life is beautiful” extraordinary drama.
    I strongly Sports watch this drama, even repeatedly. I also cry when tae sub reveal his true identity to his mother, so I know how to be themselves a minority in my opinion it is not easy for a country that does not accept the gay groups, and the acting is very natural. I really like the woo lee acting and song chang ui is very natural.
    and that I catch the drama, this is not about sex but about a sense of pure feeling. That’s why I really like the drama “life is beautiful”.

    Life is Beautiful is one of the best dramas about the joys and sorrows of human life. Life as represented by a particular culture, in this case, Korean culture, has its own unique intricacies. But when watched by other cultures, it has a universal appeal. Family life after all is human life. Some solutions to conflicts are regional and culture-specific. Others are simply universal. I admit that I watched the drama first in You tube which featured only the gay relationship of Tae Sub and Kyung Soo. But when I discovered the whole drama, I appreciated as well the other situations of other families and individuals. Tae Sub and Kyung Soo’s story is just one of the major sub-plots in the drama. Life is Beautiful has courageously dramatized the joys and sufferings of a homosexual relationship in a Korean culture (therefore audience) that is still strongly homophobic. But we all know that Koreans will come around. But Life is Beautiful cannot be identified with just that sub-plot. All the other sub-plots developing together make up the whole story. The social issues involved are so engaging (like abortion and filial duties). If you have not watched Life is Beautiful yet, watch it and you will truly be grateful you did in the end. Congratulations to everybody involved in creating this drama series. You are all beautiful!

    I was very impress when I watched this drama series., its very touching and I’m very proud of it,most of the homosexual movie that I’ve watched was contain of bed scene and just rely and focus on more on body appearance,Life is beautiful must watch especially those people who are hetero like me and most of it those people who have against and don’t understand what homosexual life is, Life is beautiful showed what life of homosexual is,on how family will accept they homosexual child, what people think around it, the concept of this drama series was very appreciated, family,culture,friendship,relationship,love and respect THUMBS UP.,, a very unique way on how to catch the attention of the people,on how to show that HOMOSEXUAL people need to understand and respect especially how will they love them… this drama series “LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL” inspire me a lot, it touched my heart and made my mind changed. thanks for the people who worked for this movie especially the two characters Tae Sub and Kyung Soo. …

    One of the best Korean Drama, who says flashback is important!!!!!!!! Have you notice in this drama the avoidance of using flashbacks….

    I’m not a gay but, I appreciate how the story tackles life of KYUNG SOO and TAE SUB!! Very gentle and simple yet daring and passionate!

    No need for a sexual action to show their love to one another, just pure love and sexy hug will complete you’re day!!!!

    i am so touched with this series… annoyed that i felt what the two guys were dealing.
    it’s like a mirror to my self. 🙁
    … it really gives me heartbreaks every time i watch it and strenghts to move up and should be proud to what kind of being i was made.
    there’s no way living like hell marrying a woman i don’t like. it’s more than a crime, i think.
    i may not have that right person right now. but i know soon.. i can find him.

    yobo seyo. komang.

    The first time I watched this drama I enjoyed it. I recently watched it again and was puzzled at how beat up the males were by their counterparts. I found myself feeling sorry for the guys as they were verbally beat up. Does this drama really represent the Korean culture?
