Good Japanese/Korean kid show
8 February 2004 | by Angel_MeiruSee all my reviews

I have first seen this show on Nickeloden years back, and it definetly caught my attention. It was a cute show, but not sickning cute, which is good. And it deals with things like "Conflict", "Diversity" and "Using your imagination", without being so PC and preachy too! Unlike most stuff in this era.

Then at Korean school, I saw the ORIGINAL Korean dialogue version of it, and I still fell in love with it. I like the Korean dialogue alot more and the soundtrack seems more upbeat and catchy.

But either way, it is reccomended, no matter if it is in English, Korean or Japanese.
