Truth be told, I wasn't planning on watching this anytime soon and only did because it was short and I knew I could finish it within a day. But even after only 2 episodes in, I knew this was going to be a good drama.

You get drawn into the romance aspect of the drama pretty quickly, but don't worry-- it's not an overly sappy, boring love story. It has a few read more cliches here and there, but not in the negative sense. The business aspect of the drama is equally great.

The acting, music and overall storyline were well above average and very enjoyable. The last few episodes were very up and down and nearly had me change my view of the entire series, but thankfully it ends on a very happy note.

All in all, if you're looking for a lighthearted, somewhat short drama that involves a good balance romance, business and drama, you won't be disappointed.

    Started watching this one but stopped after the 3rd episode. I didn't like what I watched thus far as since the main actor, in this instance, actress, Ueta Aya is in love with one fellow and stops that love to fall in love with another fellow, not a nice person in my books. I didn't like it because it just showed just how shallow someone could be to stop loving one person to love another. To me that's not real love. Very shallow indeed. Not my kind of drama at all at all. She played in another drama, Juunen Saki mo Kimi ni Koishite, now that drama turned out to be an awesome, AWESOME drama, a true romance drama in my most humble opinion. Another nice romantic one I found was Konkatsu, great drama...
