What made me decide to watch this is its title itself and when I saw that it's a light drama then I decided to watch it. I can't stand too serious heavy dramas especially long ones since it will make me feel bored. After watching this drama, I can really say that it's totally worth it! It's an entertaining drama with a lesson. It teaches you about the 'priceless' things in life read more but at the same time it's not too preachy to the point that it's irritating and that's what I love about this drama. It touches hearts but at the same time entertaining enough for you to stay and finish it.Of course, Kimura Takuya's acting here is superb and I do love Karina here as well. The rest of the actors did great even the villains. The story and character development is just fine for me and I will definitely watch this drama again whether alone or with groups of people. A realistic drama that's worth your time!:)

Loved LOVED!! This was my second Japanese drama ever to watch! I was glued to the screen as I watched all 10 episodes over a period of a day and 1/2!! This was my first introduction to Kimura Takuya and I absolutely love him! And what an intro!! From start to finish, this was a very entertaining drama! To watch the kind hearted Kindaichi Fumio and his interactions with the people around read more him made a not just a good, but a great drama! Well worth your time!

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!

    It was okay. Fresh unique story, good acting, it's just those thermos made me yawn. Still highly recommended: 8 out of 10. I might have appreciated it more if I wasn't desperate to start other Korean dramas like K2 and Shopping King Louie.

    I loved this drama, so charming, funny, and Kimutaku was fabulous (as always). However, I didn't agree with how they wrapped things up, I thought it should have ended differently. All in all well worth watching.

    Great stuff. Kimutaka & Karina leading, who could ask for more? Don't expect anything deep and meaningful but I enjoyed every minute :p

    I skipped many times through the show, but it was amusing enough to watch it whole in one take. So, simple and predictable, but very light and funny.

    Looks like I'm in the minority, but I disliked the end the most. However, it's still a good drama and worth your time :)
