This is my favorite drama of all time here why: The acting was on point the main girl had me dieing in my seat It also had a good lesson about life ,and the plot was creative and the ending was great.

I've watched this again ,and again yet still feel it was amazing i love the way i could root for the main character even though her own faults.

Watch this drama if your looking for a good easygoing old school drama.

For once another rarity where the gentres Comedy and Romance holds true, unlike some others that say romance where there is no romance, and romance mistaken for betrayal. All in all this was another rare find of an all around nice and beautiful romantic comedy.

Very well put together storyline, very well balanced between comedy and romance. It was funny when needed and equally serious when needed. The acting was superb, Yonekura Ryoko and Shiina Kippei really brought this drama to life with their awesome acting. The music was very well balanced as well.

I was extremely frustrated from watching a couple of most terrible dramas and this was my pick me up. Laughter is the best medicine, and this drama was just that with a nice romance mixed in with it.

A most definite 10 in my books in my most humble opinion. A must watch.

Really good drama.
About a woman who's insecure, gets plastic surgery and becomes a beautiful woman. Falls for a guy, and ditches her pride to get his attention in all sorts of embarrassing ways. It was so funny and heartwarming, and put emphasis on how even pretty people feel ugly in certain situations. The acting was so good, I was dying (especially in those embarrassing moments). Not only that, but the development of her character and the guy's is get so clear and amazing. Very well-written screenplay.
