Cast & Credits
The thing that makes me so angry is the big loophole. It stated that they could go back 10 months, they proceed to do repeat on 11 January 2018 but then they come back on 24 February 2017?? That doesn't make any sense, they should've come back on March 2017 not on February if it's 10 months. This bothered me so much.
I'm fond of Kanjiya Shiori, fyi she looks stunning in this drama, but somehow I think her acting is lacking in this. I don't have anything against Kanata Hongo, I don't love him nor do I hate him but he sucks at acting. I know that is quite mean but he doesn't have any expression. I notice something about him in this drama, whenever he have to show emotion like anger,sadness or shock, he blinks his eyes a lot, like A LOT. That's the only expression he does to show that emotions which make me realize he can't act.
The repeat thing is already interesting but damn the storyline sucks. I solved most of the mystery rather quickly and just stuck watching the main characters fumble around and suspecting each other. The romance is quite nice but it doesn't compensate for the horrible plot. I finished this drama in less than a day and that's only because I've been fast forwarding it like crazy.
Based on my opinion, I wouldn't recommend this drama to you.
