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 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.
