Cast & Credits
I love Tori so I thought :" It’s ok, even if this special turn out to be a shitty one I won’t care because Tori is too cute to be ignored.”
I was COMPLETELY wrong.
Tori might be famous for being a ikemen and let’s be honest, when you are known for being an ikemen people don’t take your acting too seriously ( Just like idol actors in Korea.)
But in this case Tori was amazing and really a cutie.
Let’s start with the plot, a really simple one but actually really interesting.
Tabito lost all his 5 senses after an incident ( or shock, if I might say it.)
He can only use his sight , really peculiar eyes that allow him to see emotions, words, smell, sound and so on.
Basically it’s like he’s suffering of Synesthesia . He’s a detective and with his ability he resolves simple cases. He than met a nursing teacher and the story begins.
There’s nothing much to say about this special but it’s really well written and the story is cute.
The ending leaves you with the feeling of wanting more, in fact I really HOPE this is going to be turned into a drama because I’ll definitely watch it.
The cast had a cute chemistry ( why am I using the word cute this much on this review???) and Tabito’s friend and “daughter” were amazing.
I recommended this special if you want to watch something cute ( here we go with cute again) and with a really handsome dad played by Tori.
I will finish this review by saying that I want now Tori’s kids.
