Cast & Credits
This drama is not easy to watch... it touches very a sensitive topic but it SO worth to watch.
I didn't know about the existense of IS so this struck me hard... keep an open mind and watch this and see how would you react if it was you...
I laughed and cried with the characters all along. I watched the drama in 2 days, but came to dearly love the characters.
Though it did not end as I was expecting it to end... not gonna spoil that for you...again...enjoyed every moment of it.
The parallels between the 2 families with the same problem was brilliant...I fell in love with Haru's family, and came to deeply understand the despair Miwako's mother was in, though there moments I just wanted to punch her in her face...but who knows, how I would be in that situation...
This is a very deep human drama I think. The IS term is being used to explain people that they have learn to accept themselves as they are, and only then try to change themselves, or show themselves to others... If you don't know who you are, who does? Your parents? Your friends? Who knows? You are the one who decides.
