I finally finished watching this drama. Even the story is not so different I really like it. I guess part of the reason is the harmony between the couples. As everybody says it is not a classic rich man & poor womant story. There is more than that in this drama.
And Rich Man, Poor Woman is the first Japanese drama I have ever watched, thanks to it I will watch Japanese read more dramas from now on.
I highly recommend it to you to watch..

- Story :
It's a cute and refreshing drama about Hyuga Toru, a CEO of an IT firm who is published on Forbes as a billionaire. He attained his fortune through chance and pure luck, and Chihiro a hardworking college student at Tokyo University who meets Toru and eventually becomes attracted to him.
This drama is the best "subordinate x boss" drama that i have ever watched.
There is nothing special to read more the story though but still you feel attracted to it.
- Acting/Cast : Makoto and Toru are such a wonderful couple. I cannot get enough of them together. They have a good chemistry!
Oguri Shun and Ishihara Satomi both did a great job.
- Music :
I loved the themesong , even after finishing the drama i kept listening to it from time to another.
P.S : I highly recommend this drama to rom-com drama fans!!

Whatching this drama I kept being reminded of Priceless all the time. Rich man is a lot more romance-y, but both these titles are about passionate and talented bussinessmen who end up having to rebuild their companies. Priceless is also very interesting, well written and extremely funny and enjoyable. A definitive must watch for all Jdrama lovers out there!
Recommended by lillith
Both are romantic comedies revolving around an ordinary girl who has been job seeking for a while, being employed by a rich man with an arrogant personality and poor social skills, and even though they dislike each other at first, they soon fall in love.

    Great acting and I love the element of technology in this one! Unfortunately, I was expecting more humor, but on the flip side, there were some very promising sweet and romantic moments! I enjoyed it, but it wasnt what I was looking for!

    I enjoyed every bit of it. This is fun, lovely, true feelings about love and friendship. I love the bromance and Hyuga's eccentric character. Truly amazing.
