Okay... I admit that i watched this drama because of Seto Koji at first but this drama is so much better than I expected. The story is really well written and the acting is superb. It is very choppy and does not waste any time on things like reminiscing or misunderstandings or missing each other by a second (far out! I HATE cliched rubbish like that... reminiscing and crying is not the read more only way to portray emotion!). Despite saying that... actually there are some instances where misunderstandings occur, but they are all within reason and the problems are solved before it got TOO annoying (like to the point where u want to throw something at the screen xP). Also, some of the conversations are quite interesting and Koji's double personality is also really well portrayed (I really LOLed xP).

For some people, a romance drama between people nearly 20 years different in age may be slightly off-putting but rest assure, you are not going to see anything dodgy. The relationship between all the characters are very interesting. I have never seen a drama with characters so well composed (well given the age... you would expect that they act adult-like) unlike the mainstream drama with divorce/cheating in it. This drama shows that broken relationships does not always end up with lots of crying, screaming, slapping, revenge etc. Despite the conflicts they faced, all the characters remained rational. They counselled each other, listened to each other and really thought about each other. I think this is much more realistic than those drama that just show characters lashing out at each other and trying to take revenge.

All that said, I think this is a great drama and well worth the time watching it.

    Have watched 1-6eps & impressed with the depth of angst and care the actors portray amidst break-ups. This is not a silly cougar series, this series so far illustrates the degrees of learning (or not learning)how to re-locate the new you. My only issue getting all the eps translated. Well worth watching, if you want to see what a mature relationship could be...

      YES! I love this show with the 6 episodes ive seen, lol. I know ppl have lives & all that, but if you're going to start something, finish it!! Theres only 3 eps left to translate, whats taking sooooo long?!? Its been like 2-3 months since ep 6 = (((

      If u like this show, you will LOVE, lolve "Platonic" (if its not on your list already)!!

      will look for Platonic... still waiting to get this series finished. Still loving this show

      Yes!! Saw the 1st ep and i love where its going! Although someone finally decided to sub Platonic (like, just this week), it may be subbed just as slow as Nemureru =((

      I dont know why the popularity in jdramas dropped or what happened to the japanese/english speaking folks (like they all just evaporated), but like you i find it frustrating & baffling!!

      Jdrama's and Thai Lakorns are the SLOWEST to get subbed. Lets keep chatting this up and maybe we will flush out some subbers (since I speak neither), :(((

    I want to watch it.. But somehow I am afraid of what I am going to watch. Because that old woman is 46, they will probaly be some sexual scenes, which I dont want to see. My lovely Seto Koji <3 Why did you said yes to this drama. D:

      No dodgy scenes (not even a kiss). It focuses more on the emotional aspect of relationships. This drama is really good and is definitely worth while!
