Rated this 7/10

... Because a drama educating adolescents on love and loneliness in high school, can't score higher.

7/10 is not a bad rating and I did not dislike this drama. Honestly, it was very entertaining to watch and it was very well made. The actors did an incredible job despite being so young and I have great respect for them since they pulled off the "Mature" tag without making it read more seem trashy or unrealistic.

Before watching this drama you should prepare for:

sexual scenes (Underwear, over the bra touching, covered up sex scenes, making out, and other mature content.)

A lot of inside dialogue

Lesbian love

High schoolers making countless mistakes and being generally butter brained.

The feels;
This drama will not make you cry but since it is a Jdrama, don't expect things to go the way you want them. This is basically a drama showing how people grow with time and experience. you WILL feel frustration

It was very well made, so if you have nothing against the things listed above, I think you should take your time to watch this. It will be a nice memory and each episode is only about 23 minutes long. Nothing to lose and it will surely be an experience.

ENJOY!

This drama is very complicated in every aspect. It caught me off guard because it's too heavy for a high school drama compared to the high school korean dramas I have watched. Nevertheless, I like it because it brings focus to sensitive issues that adults consider trivial--such as dealing with the first love. Adults usually trivialize the feeling of loneliness of an unrequited first love but this j-drama reminds the viewers the read more uncertainty and awkwardness of first love. More than the love line, this drama shows the youth a great lesson about finding yourself first before anything and that it's okay not to have your life figured out yet.

Make a Recommendation Recommendations

If you like kind a dark romance, something that's not only black & white - sometimes grey, when the male/female lead is only human and can made mistake - everyone made mistake and try to correct it, something psychological, steamy, smut and mature story. I think you can give KNH a try.
NB: there is too much of adult content, recommended for 17+ only.

    This drama reminded me of when I was reading Wuthering Heights and I was thinking "You all need a psychiatrist, a good one. You are all so f*cked up, big time. Please just stop whatever you're doing and re-evaluate your lives. I can't keep reading"
    But I kept reading anyway, and I finished the drama...so, I think I'm the psyco here XD

    mistakes were made! Actually really enjoyed this one. Each character acts out all their internal emotions in some rather tragic ways, yet in the end, they learn from the mistakes the hard way and stand stronger on their own. It's frustrating to see them trying to rationalize these mistakes over and over. But these are emotional struggles that most people can relate to, albeit most would deal with it internally, rather than acting on these emotions.

    This is one of those twisted dramas where characters are morally ambiguous and can behave in rather irrational ways in order to fulfil or ease the conflicts and desires of the heart. Not for those who like a straight-forward, simple and sweet romance.

    I liked it, surprisingly. The plot was a bit of a mess but I think I really enjoyed watched it because of the cinematography, the beautiful soundtrack, and the acting. (And Ecchan. I love Ecchan).

    How do you even start to explain this drama? It was really interesting but got a bit too odd towards the end. The acting was actually fairly good but the characters were sometimes either far to complex to understand or just messy af. At one point I just wanted to scream at everyone to get help.

    I did enjoy following the main leads.

    The camerawork in this drama was STUNNING, the way that scenes were captured and the transitions were made were great. And OMG, the instrumentals. I felt emotional every time a song started playing.

    Good manga, good anime, not so much drama.
    Again we have the problem of adaptation, although relatively faithful is a drama that did not thrill with real actors, the anime is more interesting as the manga.
    Honestly, I did not like it. It was realistic and at the same time not coherent and at the same time incoherent, but the cool thing is that it showed that not everyone can leave happy there.

    This drama doesn't hold back showing or maybe exaggerates the horrible bitter side of romance. It won't make you feel sad, but more like someone just PUNCHED YOU IN THE STOMACH. yes. Definitely recommended for those who like tragedy.

    Pretty much went along with the manga in my opinion.
