The original material for this drama comes from a blog titled "Gekikakusatsu SS Nikki" by a person named Maidy. In the drama, Inaba Hirotaro, who has only been devoted to working so far, is hooked on online games now that he is over 60. His son, Akio, a salaryman, is trying to reach out to his father as a game player in the same world of online games without disclosing his true identity. Despite the secrets that each of them have, father and son, start to understand each other and become them closer through the online games. Edit Translation

This is just the sweetest little drama - I totally loved it :D The interaction of the dad & son felt so totally real - which comes from this being based on a real life story of course :d The plot included a lot of atypical scenarios (ie pretty little boy having a female persona may be normal enough & also some fangirls' dream, but not seen very often in dramas - just one example). The use of Final Fantasy (which simply has gorgeous graphics - best on the beautiful scale in my opinion) really emphasized the relationship between father & son, plus the inner growth of the father. Gamers everywhere can empathize with this. Plus the subtle humor throughout truly added to the enjoyment.
I highly recommend this to anyone who is a gamer or who knows one!
The fact that Mama is totally into KDramas (HOYA!!! I saw HOYA!) thrilled me :D I immediately identified with her LOL

I am writing this from the view of a long time MMORPGer and as a parent.  This is cute little story that almost made me want to resubscribe to WOW...then I remember my 8 characters pain and decided to let them be. 100 Levels and 400 pets later it is time to let them rest.  Oh right back to the review.  

It is cute, only 8 episodes so a tight story line.  It is a slice of life drama based on a true life story.  You believe this household exists and the bonds that are there even if only loosely.  

And yes Mom loves Kdrama, Alot.

Episode 8 though totally not needed for story progression, be warned.

I enjoyed this, I hope you do too
