" Budokan " was a nice drama about the struggles of an idol group.

The girls were cute and adorable overall. Plus, the music was pretty good and catchy. In addition the performances from all the actors and actresses in the cast were good. Some of the scenes and stories were entertaining as well.

However, the problems of the group were kind of predictable and they didn't go deeper than scratching the surface of the girls' problems. I guess other dramas did a better job with presenting an idol's life, but this drama was too short as well, so there was not enough time to explore the story right.

So, overall, six out of ten.
