So far this drama has been very entertaining, it reminds me a lot of Hotaru no Hikari but this one is better. The atmosphere is great, the story flows nicely and all characters are very lovable. Acting is great and there are no dull moments. In fact I think that acting is especially good in this drama. I'm hyped up to watch more series of this director! Also, Jdramas often look really read more cheap and awkward but not this one!

Even though the story is pretty basic I like the implementation, just makes you want to watch one episode after another. Chemistry between the main characters is awesome as well. Usually Jdramas lack in the romance part but I think I finally found one which doesn't!

Warmly recommended to all romance lovers.

I will admit, this drama isn't anything new, but it will make you grin and giggle. I'm sure everyone's familiar with the common love triangle, but fear not! This is an unpredictable drama with two very good looking male leads with impressive acting skills.

Like most dramas, the first third to a half wasn't much to talk about. However, everything eventually grows on you and soon enough, the character progression and relationships read more have you hooked! I don't believe the humour from the side story was as effective as intended but it still leaves you shocked and smiling. I don't think this is everyone's cup of tea but I think it's a nice, short and flirty drama to watch whilst passing time.

Bearing in mind that several characters require some patience when watching, this drama is a must watch for any Miura Haruma fan! He reveals many addicting factors to this drama that make you fall in love with him allover again. A very fun drama, indeed!

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.

Both are noona romances. Where older women date younger men and realize they can find love in unexpected places. There are also 2 male leads who seem suitable for our heroine.
There are also other stories surrounding the main couple. The storylines of a few of the secondary characters are also similar.

    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

    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!

    I really loved this drama, including the ending, but the last two episodes were kind of slow.
