The thing is they made it so simple, yet so bland, I can't even wrap my head around it.
Story: the reasoning behind the concept is interesting! A woman lose her memories about the previous 3 months; she finds out she has completely changed in comparison to what she remembers of herself, personality and outside appearances wise. Everything has changed: from her body to her style and even her apartment is different.
Now she's got an ex-boyfriend/roommate which she knows NOTHING about. Also, the woman has a special friendship with another man (they are childhood friends).
It's a simple triangle story, okay? I don't need to post any spoiler about this, except it's not an actual triangle and even though you're wishing for an happy ending, the last episode is kinda dull.
Acting: first, I love Otani Ryohei ? he can be a tree in the next drama, I'd still love him. The lead actress isn't so bad, but she's a tad annoying, and Yuki, well... i can't hate him, but he's always the same character! I'm kind of tired of this rigid, straight-faced, fish eyed man he has to be in every single drama/movie.
This time around I saw some smiles here and there, but really... I can't feel a thing coming from him. Maybe it's a cultural barrier, but honestly... I watch pretty much ONLY asian dramas and I feel nothing when he acts. I don't hate him, I swear. I wish he was more soulful.
I feel bad to say this was not worthy of my time, since I enjoyed it and didn't drop it, but the ending is so predictable, dull, boring and this ruins pretty much everything. Even though it's not a masterpiece to begin with, it's still a decent drama if you're looking for some romance to pass the time.
To be honest, I don't even know why I expected this to be a great drama.
First of all, the plot is so bland and silly but I was hoping that they were going to use it and make it interesting. And I all get was disappointment.
The story has the popular cliché of the "ugly girl" who doesn't care about her looks, that is almost 30 and still single. And the handsome guy who wants to help her change and love herself. Is not that clichés are bad, I think it's the way they used them that is wrong and made the story so pointless. I was hoping that the amnesia cliché will fix those things but it didn't; actually, the fact that they didn't even explained the amnesia thing is one of the things that made everything in the story pointless.
Still, it had a few good things. Th first four chapters got me into the drama and made my expectations come really high. I was fascinated by the idea of this woman living with a handsome (kind of) man under the same roof. I expected a lot of action and chemistry between those two. And I felt dissapointed again.
As a summary: If it wasn't 10 episodes long, I would probably dropped it.
