Title: Jungle fish Season 2
AKA: Jeonggeul Piswi Season 2
Genre: Drama / school

A story of 5 friends, Min Ho Soo, Seo Yool, Ahn Ba Woo, Lee Ra Yi, Yoon Gong Ji, Baek Hyo An, and their struggles while going to school in Korea. While going to one of the toughest schools Baek Hyo An (Han Ji Woo) mysteriously dies, her friends do not believe that she would kill herself as its portrayed by the school and media, therefore they decide that they should find out the truth. Min Ho Soo (Hong Jong Hyun) is very eager to find out the truth as he broke up right before she died and also feels guilt because he didnt notice that she needed help. A lot of other things occur to the friends such as pregnancy and fights with parents aso.

The drama is very short and easy to watch. The theme is very cool as well, i havent watched any korean dramas like this so i liked it. The story is mainly about the friends trying to solve the mystery so the length is actually okay though i wish there was more :D maybe because of the actors ( especially Lee Joon ) , lol too much fangirl XD . Not really much to say. i liked it, well it was as shot for me lol, short and cool cast, nice theme.. but there wasnt much to think about, there wasnt THAT much mystery just something u sit and watch. Not really exciting but alright.

☆☆☆½ / 3.5 out of 5 stars

Bunji's Verdict
Wow! Took me 3 days to finish this! And it’s only 8 episodes! Can’t say it’s bad; good storyline and decent actors, but seriously… the focus is just wrong.
Okay, I get that the storylines of all 5 leads has to be shown, but it just takes too much of the ‘red-thread’, and you simply don’t care about the death of the friend, heck, I was hoping for something a bit more shaky, it’s almost too typical. Yes, I did want to know who is responsible for her death, but it just became boring and completely repeating.
The thing that surprised me is that the 5 friends in some way didn’t care enough for each other; I mean the dialogues make them seem not so close. And the lead became obsessed, ended up not considering the others, even in the ending.
I finished it with a smile though. A very realistic ending, with all of them realizing what it means to be part of the ‘Jungle’..

☆☆☆☆ / 4 out of 5 stars
