Cast & Credits
Anyways for me, I LOVED THIS DRAMA. Everything was simply perfection.
After one episode, I was instantly hooked. The plot had a good start and made me interested. This drama is a really different drama than most others dramas I've watched. This is my first time watching a slice of life kind of drama. This drama had a bit of everything but not too much of it. It just flowed along together really well and didn't overdo a genre in just 8 episodes. I loved that. This drama had so much funny and cute moments, too. I laughed and smiled a lot. Some scenes were also sad and I also cried...
This drama also gave me many meaningful life lessons. It really made me learn: Not to care what others think of me and just do what I want to do. Life brings you down at times, but don't feel discouraged and keep your head up. As long as you never give up, a better day of life will come for you. As long you never give up your dreams, you will accomplish them. Everyone has a different meaning of happiness. You should find yours and not let others stand in the way of you finding your happiness. You also never know whats going to happen in life, but as long as you keep living, new things will happen to you everyday; whether good or bad. But at least days won't stay the same. Your world will change everyday. You should enjoy life while you can and make the most of it! :)
I was having a bad day when I was watching this drama. However, when I finished this drama, my whole life changed. My mood just brightened up and I'm so much more optimistic now. I've learned to just keep moving forward and not dwell on the past any longer.
And just a shout out to Ohno Satoshi. Like... that man is simply amazing. He really brought this character he was acting to life. I loved this character a lot. I could tell he put his all into this character. I think this is one of my most favorite roles of Ohno so far. This character is such an inspiration to me. As I watched this drama, I could relate to Yano Kenta (the character Ohno is playing in this drama) SO MUCH. My personality was EXACTLY like Yano Kenta. It was like I found another me. The lazy, unmotivated, carefree, and uncommitted type of person. As I watched this drama, watching Kenta change made me feel like I was changing too. Finally, I feel like I have become a whole new person after finishing this drama thanks to Yano Kenta.
I simply am so grateful to have found out about this drama. This drama is a 10/10 for sure for me.
I usually don't watch these kind of dramas but I gave it a try for Ohno and I was pleasantly surprised by how good this drama was. Throughout the drama, nothing really surprising happens (well maybe a couple if you don't try thinking of what's going to happen next since it can be a bit predictable at times) but despite that, I ended up finishing this drama in a day. The drama sends out a good message of that we never know whats going to happen life "but, if you wait for a bit the wind will blow in a different direction.”
Since this is about someone singing on a children's show, there is quite a handful of children as the cast. They're still children so it's obvious that their acting isn't as great but it's bearable. On the other hand, the rest of the cast were quite good (overbearing at times but that's just their character).
The music was interesting. I think they sang a different song in each episode for the children show and it's funny seeing them in weird costumes. Other music that played during the background wasn't that memorable though but from what I remember, they fit the scene.
Since nothing really surprising happens, the rewatch value is high and I think it would be fun to watch again.
So if you need a breather from heavy dramas or just want to watch something funny, this drama is definitely it. This drama is only 8 episodes long so it won't take that long to finish either.
