I think that people are to critical when it comes to this drama. I have to say I really enyojed watching it and have a hard time understanding why a lot of people call it slow and boring.

I'm a big fan of Yamapi, so it was obvious that I would give this a try. And I wasn't disappointed. The plot was a bit different from other dramas, or maybe I should read more say it was less drama than in other dramas. And believe it or not, I found that to be really nice.

It's a story about love and friendship and about finding your way in life. But, it was realistic and a story that could happen to anyone and that's why I found it to be different from other dramas. It's nice to once in a while watch a drama that could happen in real life and somehow I found myself recognizing so much that happened to my daily life.

Overall, a goodfeel drama with good cast. Watch it!

Summer nude started off promising but sadly became very predictable towards the last episodes. The pacing was slow, but I do not mind that at all, in fact I enjoyed it thoroughly. This drama is at times just one big sappy love story, but I do feel that the relationships presented in there were both realistic and relateable. So while the pace was slow, I did enjoy the story and felt connected read more to it. If the ending hadn't gotten so predictable and because of that, a little boring, I probably would've given it a higher rating.

    I'm halfway through ep 6 and, man, Yamapi I love you but... acting really isn't your strong suit, honey.

      After this drama, it improved so much I wondered if he took acting lessons!! Seriously! Flowers for Algernon is excellent!!

      Maybe it's the roles? I don't know. I am planning on watching Algernon, though, so hearing that is a relief.

    I Love It !
    I give high rate for this drama even some people said it's kinda slow drama.
    But for me it was fun, it doesn't have a a big tense, but the romance was real and cute. May be because i do ever experience some same problem that this drama have, like timeless unrequited love, left by people who we love to get married, triangle love, timeless waiting,fall in love with best friend etc.
    The Setting is so much fun, there are a lot of good and nice people, and i think the main reason i love this drama is because Yamapi itself,, hoho,, he look so damn cool, how could you not fall in with him ! ^^

    My opinion will always be the same : Yamashita Tomohisa has the exact role in every drama. He always plays the kind passive guy. I mean, his characters become too repetitive. I'm a bit sad because I know he can be a great actor.
    Anyway, this drama was still nice to watch, even if it was a bit slow, and the atmosphere and the landscape were great !

      yes, you're right. In the past I will follow everything he does, but after 3 or 4 dramas it was clear he only does one character, cool, passive and a heartbreaker. which is a shame really, I think Eita and Oguri Shun are way better actors, they can be a terrifying Yakuza or idiots. I wish Yamapi will step out of his zone and do a violent loud or even comedic rule.

    Yamapi reminds me of Kristen Steward. Be it angry, sad, frustration, happy, amused, surprise... the expressions are the same!

      I really adore it makes me even more sad to admit, that you're right. Eh. Though I'm sure that he is looking for more demanding, challenging and different roles. At least that's what he's said in an interview not long ago - trying something different. I wish he will be able to proove what's in him :)

      Actually I don't mean to undermine him. People can improve themself over time & practice. Talents make them exceptionally,,, distinguished?

      That's a pretty big slander on Yamapi. At least his eyes express lots of emotions. and he smiles too!!! He can create so much feels when he acts! Kristen Stewart doesn't create any emotions in the viewers that watch her.

      Well, I made the first comment in 2013 (see the date of the comment above). Many things had happend in between. Yamapi is older now and wiser and has lots of time to improve.

    After the marathon of Joseon K-dramas, Summer Nude felt very pure, down to earth, refreshing and REAL. I'm glad I've picked it up(actually I just wanted to see how does Yamashita-san looks like in the 2013. The last time I saw him was in 2009 Buzzer Beat. He looks as handsome as always, by the way <3 ).
    Anyway, I loved this J-drama. It has reminded me of how awesome J-drama are and how much I've missed these slow, down to earth, moralistic dramas.
