Story: The storyline was ok. I mean it was kind of typical Japanese romantic manga/anime plot. I will say this is the 1st Japanese drama I have watched from beginning to end. It had me glued plus the episodes are about 45 minutes long, so they were a little shorter than typical Korean drama episodes. There is a huge age gap between the main couple and the ending while I liked it, read more it seemed like a bit of a stretch. I just find Japanese dramas to be too over the top like they are trying to be animes, and it doesn't work.

Cast: Good, I thought they all did a decent job.

Music: It's ok. I was hummming it. So it was catchy.

Rewatch: Yeah, I might rewatch it. It will probably be when I feel like crap and I need a pick me up. It's a feel good drama for sure.

Overall: It was good. It's not my absolute favorite of all time, but it wasn't as silly as some Japanese dramas. This is for an older audience for sure. There were some parts that made me feel uncomfortable.

This was cute, refreshing but didn't turn out the way I expected it to. I would have personally liked to have seen a different outcome. It could be quite funny and I liked how the female character evolved even though I would have made different choices. It's good for a quick light watch. Also a good introduction to jdramas.

Similar story about a woman who "sleeps" with someone much younger than themselves and then finds them dating that person while also being faced with a love triangle. They're a bit different but also very similar.

Spinster started with dating. Similar embarassing situations (in OMD some scenes are over the top), funny... OMD is shortened +200 drama (2004), so the movie isn't comprehensive enough. LC is far better IMO.

    I tried watching the first episode, but stopped after about 15 minutes. Should I try again?

    I really enjoyed watching this drama. At first I thought that the age gap was going to make things awkward, but fortunately it did not.

    I was surprised by this drama, it started as any other silly comedy with cliche plot but as the storyline goes, the character development gets very good and the situations they go throught seem real to me

    One of those dramas which have great characters, great details (OHHH I like those aphorisms so much), but do not end up well because of cliched wrong storyline

    Do NOT watch this! She picks the wrong guy and its heartbreaking.

      The audience was polled to pick which guy she ends up w/.... the viewers chose the ending !
      I also do NOT agree w/ her final choice as to which guy she chose , BUT , the drama is still Very Good and worth watching !!! .... ....
      Besides , I choose to believe she ended up changing her mind and going w/ the guy I like for her !!!

      so I recommend : People , WATCH this drama, it is worth it !!!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this drama from start to finish... Honestly, I was dreading the day when I would reach the final episode. The plot is simple, but do not underestimate it. Many plot twists occurred which I enjoyed and sometimes did not expect. At first, I did not think I would like Hiroto and Sakura together, but I ended up liking them as a couple (Sorry to those of you Sakura x Tachibana fans!)! All the characters were great and well developed, so I was easily interested in them. The mature elements in this drama which I did not think I would like, actually ended up being a part of this drama which I thought was quite new to me (and not in a bad way). I am not a big fan of anything with too much mature content, but this drama made it a thing of humor, so I was quite pleased. Before I forget, I love humor (as I mentioned earlier) and if any of you are like me, you will laugh a lot while watching this! There were so many funny jokes and moments that made me smile! Another thing I must say, if you love Miura Haruma, then this is definitely worth watching (he looked so great in this and his acting was great too! this was my first time seeing him in a drama, by the way!)! Last thing: Although many of you stated you did not enjoy the ending, I must admit I think it ended very well! Long comment made short: Watch this drama!
