The most quotable drama so far. So, the landlady tells her four hot tenants to turn her niece into a lady and, in exchange, she would let them stay at the boarding house for free. Kyohei, who has had a troubled and violent life and just lost his job due to his drop-dead georgeous looks, jumps at the opportunity.
Enter Sunako - Her bangs reach her mouth, she wears a read more cloak, sleeps in a coffin, has a science lab mannequin as her best friend, shrieks with joy at the sight of skulls, blood and medieval killing weapons, and whenever she makes eye contact with a person shouts "Briiiiight" and bangs her head over them (mostly Kyohei though).
I love the ending of every episode where Kyohei goes all "ugly Sunako Ugly Sunako Ugly Sunako Ugly Sunako" which makes her enraged and they always end up in a physical fight! :D And I'm glad that, unlike a typical drama, the lead girl didn't have a complete makeover and changed her personality all together. Instead Kyohei fell in love with the Horror girl itself (: And, that the other guys did not fall in love with her. Instead they helped Kyohei realize his feelings.

"What is a Lady? When a woman falls in love with the best man in the world, she becomes a lady."
-Sunako's aunt aka the landlady

I watched this drama on a whim, mostly because I tried watching the anime version of the show and could never get past the second episode. The drama is significantly better.

In all honesty, I liked this show. I thought it was hilarious at points and heart breaking at others. The arguments and situations were sometimes so far fetched it was hard not to laugh. I liked the slapstick and more nuanced, read more subtle humor as well. The thing I liked about this drama was that it seemed like a parody of itself. The show was unabashedly cliche and was able to derive humor from all of those cliches.

Ultimately, I wish there were more episodes that showed more depth in the other characters. The problem with some Japanese dramas is that they seem like a summary look into a character. This drama is not much different.

The other thing was the lack of creativity in dramatic events. It's like two things happened in the first two episodes, and then the rest of the show was on repeat.

Overall though, a fun drama with some awesomely funny and ridiculous scenes.

Four Beautiful guys! One arrogant and stubborn man. Although the storyline is way different you would love Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge. The Comedy and love story is brilliant. Both stories tell you about what it means to be rich or poor,having a personality over beauty. It's a most see!

while the story lines are entirely different, both the female leads are extremely antisocial and try to avoid leaving their homes as much as possible.
both a great watch!

    I'm watching this again. Everything is great but the little kid Takeru is annoying as hell (and I usually like kid actors :D).

    Kamenashi Kazuya and me are not very good friends usually, but I don't know, I came to like him in this drama. Well, the plot is a little far-fetched : a women who will come to live with 4 ikemen ... I would like to be real but it isn't right ? But Sunako is hilarious and just for her it's worth it!

    Anyway, it is far-fetched but it is not a big deal because it's why we want to watch it : because it will never happen *laugh*

    This was such a good drama. Light and fun to watch, some great little lessons to learn and you can't deny the eye candy - easily one of the best looking casts in my drama experience (yes, to me, they even beat the Korean F4).
    And even me, the grand lover of all things in a love triangle, found this drama refreshing with all the romances for each of the boys. The ending made me smile :)
    Highly recommended!
    [PS. Busunako, Busunako, BUSUNAKO! Can't get that out of my head!]

    First Drama :')
    To think if I hadn't watched the Anime so many years ago I might not have found out about the live-action leading to Dramas.
    Even now after watching loads of dramas I still love this so much :) Only drama I can ever re-watch :D
