An incident 100 years ago led to a professor’s creation of a monster with a human-like form but definitely not a human-like appearance. And yet, this immortal monster has more compassion than humans. He quietly hides deep in the forest and dreams of the day he can live as a human being even though he knows this is impossible. Then something results in his encounter with a young woman Tsugaru-san and he falls in love with her. He starts to learn about love, friendship and the world. However, there is a secret. A monster cannot come into contact with a human being

Fantastic acting, production value, cinematography, sound track. It was pretty much a movie production stretched into drama. Ayano Go is amazing here as the 'monster' created from dead people, where a scientist had altered some genetic material and revived. He learns about what it means to live, be a human, and human emotions like love, fear, displacement, friendship. Less sci-fi and more fantasy, and slower paced than it could be, still, its beautiful tone throughout is worth watching every minute. Finely calibrated performances from Ayano and Nikkaido, at a level you don't normally see in TV dramas. Take out the annoying side characters and you have a perfect drama.

A modern classic!
"Frankenstein no Koi" has an interesting story with a better narrative, I liked it, the cinematography was beautiful giving an old and modern touch, the soft soundtrack that moved the cast in a very good performance. Perhaps what he sinned in the drama was the very basic story, although he did like it, it is not a fun novel worthy of Korean dramas, it is behaved within the average and Japanese standards, yet highly enjoyable!
