I guess the title "Adults who cant express themselves well" was already taken. Lol.

Slow dance is really about a group of adults who are trying to find what they want in their love lives and in life in general. While they can't figure it out for themselves they ask their even more clueless friends, thus creating misunderstandings. I liked the acting all the lead characters were good; however some read more incidental characters weren't the best actors. I liked how the actors portrayed the confusion and pain of their characters in subtle ways. The script writer was clever and showed the character development/ character realizations clearly. The story was well planned and uncommon; however if you like "love shuffle" you would like this one. Although the progression seems to be slow there aren't many dull moments, I never fast forwarded out of boredom, only because I felt embarrassed for them.

The drama doesn't suck you in and make you want more, but you are totally interested and invested through each episode. Even though Isaki, the female lead can get annoying, I really enjoyed watching this drama .Of course the people I put together initially didn't get together but I still felt the ending was a happy and perfect one.

P.s. there are some really squeal-worthy confessions and proposals

some SPOILERS








Well I did like it at the start,but then later on I started to hate every main character.

1st Mino seems innocent at first, but she leads on 3 guys and just toys with them.

2nd Eisuke fck him I hated him so much. Just a playboy,but he acts like a decent guy which pisses me off even more. He shows no guilt. He has sex with one girl, he read more leads one girl on, and has a gf. I just hate him.

3rd Isaki she was fine I really like her. She is quirky and really cute at times.

4th Riichi he is also a decent guy, but I hate how he gave up his dream with such a lame ass excuse.

      It's fine to dislike a drama for whatever reason and to drop it, and to talk about your opinion, but I don't think it's fair to write a review when you haven't completed the drama. That's what comments, feeds and forum are for! So I wrote the above comments in response to gonnabe2pro's review, simply because I feel that the statements don't do the characters justice at all, and may make people get the wrong idea. There are spoilers.

      In my opinion, this is isn't a typical "romance", even if it's that, too. It's more about finding your way in life, finding out who you really want to be and what you want to do. The characters are in their late 20s or 30-something, and perhaps you have to be that age or thereabout to be able to relate to it? I don't know.

    I'm at episode 5 right now, and at this point I feel that blackstar_aria's review is accurate! Right now I can't guess who's going to end up with whom. Even though I can sort of understand gonnabe2pro's opinions (note that not episodes were watched at the time for the review, though), I don't agree with them - I still like all the main characters, EVEN with their flaws. They're not perfect, but I'd say they're human. I don't know how I'll feel later on, but right now I feel that this is why I watch dramas. :)
