[Discussion] Tatta Hitotsu no Koi
I wanted to start a thread for this drama as i really enjoyed it & hope other people will also want to see it.
Here is the blurb from MDL:
A boy and a girl from highly different social backgrounds meet and fall in love. Their love, of course, faces a lot of obstacles. The setting is in Yokohama, a modern port city known for its romantic atmosphere. Hiroto Kanzaki (Kazuya Kamenashi) works hard every day and night for the survival of a small ship repair factory (inherited from his father) as well as the survival of his mother and younger brother, who are suffering from health problems. Living such an underprivileged life, Hiroto has forgotten how to smile. In contrast to him, Nao (Haruka Ayase) is the daughter of a popular jewelry shop owner in a fashionable street in Yokohama. She attends a prestigious exclusive women's college and grew up cheerful and blessed with affluent love. From the moment Hiroto meets her, his closed mind slowly opens up to Nao, who is so innocent that she utters whatever she thinks. Their three close friends, who are also 20 year old's, play an important role in their developing relationship. The scriptwriter is Eriko Kitagawa, who earned the nickname "The Goddess of Love Stories." This classic love story enables those who are in the same generation to feel empathy, or be envious of the characters' lives; and the rest, who were once 20 years old's, to reminisce about their own "Love of My Life."
Its not a particularly exciting drama rather its appeal lies in little moments which you will remember long after the drama is finished. I had disliked J-Dramas before i saw THNK & this was a turning point for me.

I started watching this one and only made it 34 minutes into episode one. To me it seemed like they were trying way too hard, especially when they were falling into the pool. That looked so fake/overly dramatic. Maybe I'll try it again later though.

Its one of that smooth dramas I really favor. The whole story and love is decided just by the main characters not by evil family memebers or friends.

This is the first Japanese drama I watched. It was the spark that made me intrigued about venturing outside of my Kdrama love. Now I think I have 4 more under my belt and about to add a 5th.
Its a good one to start with. I loved the love story.
