Upon getting thrown out of his girlfriend Fujiko's apartment, Hiromi (Sorimachi) decides to head for the ocean. En route, he crosses paths with Kaito (Takenouchi), an elite employee of a large multinational trading company in Tokyo who is running away from his problems at work after losing a key client. The two stumble into a quiet B&B on the beach run by the aging surfer Masaru and his high-school-aged granddaughter Makoto. Hiromi immediately applies to work there for the summer, and Kaito is forced to join him after he loses his wallet. The two share a room, with Hiromi trying to make friends, and Kaito at first resisting, unimpressed by Hiromi's devil-may-care attitude. Slowly over the ensuing episodes, Kaito becomes more and more at home in this sleepy rural town, and begins to wonder if he should give up his pursuit of success in the big city, and try to relax, and enjoy himself more. When he returns to Tokyo to finish his work, Hiromi and Makoto come to lure him back, but when he returns to the B&B, his boss and girlfriend Sakura likewise come looking for him.
Cast & Credits
All I can say is that dramas from 90s were the best! Beach Boys is a masterpiece of bromance.
I will miss Hiromi and Kaito.
The actors were great. They made me laugh and cry until the end. Everyone has something interesting and touchful.
I would like to watch it over and over and over.
It's good drama about life and friendship. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad and heartbreaking...
This is not just stupid comedy to watch when you wanna relax. It makes you think ... about things ^^
And guys don't worry about this"bromance" shit people talk about ^^ I was really suspicious becouse of that ;/ But it's nothing more than normal friendship. And there are cute girls in this drama too...Ooohh Haruko I would totally go for you.
...I forgot about music. It's GREAT!
