Dramas with a moderately dark, controversial, and intense plots addicts me to it a LOT. And, 'Sachi-iro no One Room' is such a drama.

The plot is pretty controversial, as you can see how it romanticized a case of kidnapping. But, if you check out the drama, you'd realize that it isn't exactly a case of kidnapping, as the supposedly stalker male-lead simply saved the female-lead from committing suicide and only asked if she wanted to live with him. She agreed, as she had given up on life. It was nothing serious for her to live with a stalker after getting abused by parents, bullied by classmates, and sexually harassed by her teacher. If you simply look into the drama, you'll find out how the story is interesting and how it would pull you into it- and the doubtful thought you had after seeing the summary would go away from your mind.

The actors are pretty good too and the simple-yet-so-satisfying cinematography would surely make you enjoy this short drama as much as I did. Plus, the OST is absolutely amazing. Recommended indeed!

Going into this drama, I was alarmed by the plot summary but proceeded anyway and wow...It was so so insightful yet painful to watch the events happening to the protagonist. The relationship between the leads is unique and everyone can have their own say about the ethics of it but it's just...everything in this drama leaves the leads in such a unique position that what may be wrong can be right. That's all I can say, it definitely takes a toll on you emotionally and the psychological factor is big for the viewer here. Yet, I still would encourage everyone to try it out, see what you make of it....

The drama goes through oscillations, the adaptation is good, the chronological order is not very espressa, that is, in the case of the example (the time when the captured girl was protected), I received an unscrupulous impression of the time. History, however, lacks volume, it is lean, does not nourish strong feelings, of improbable development. Although the image is beautiful cinematically speaking, I wonder if it is actually possible, although the mystery of Yukibata has been solved, I still do not understand the "brother". Overall Sachiiro in One Room has picture is beautiful. It is easy to understand the content, but I am concerned about the continuation of such a shallow history.

This drama plays with our definition of words.

What is a 'suspect'? A 'victim'? What is the meaning of 'happiness' to each of us?

I liked it more than I thought I would. Anyone who got interested after reading the synopsis but still hesitate because of some reviews/comments just go ahead and give it a try. Yes, it's not perfect and sometimes try a bit too hard to be deep, I could spot some details that were not very logical on my first watch, but they don't matter, I'm willing to overlook them because I like the distorted relationship the two share, maybe it's not love, but it's a bond that they need. They trust and change each other for the better and they give a meaning to each other's life. And to some extent, I can relate to the 2 main characters.

Around Ep 7-8, I was quite confused and not sure where the plot was heading but the ending turned out better than I expected. I can understand why some might hate the ending, maybe it's me being pessimistic again but I like it. It's as she said, she would decide her own definition of happiness. If you don't like the ending you can still check out the manga, it's still on going, maybe there'll be a different ending. Though it's most likely that the author had approved this ending before the drama was made.

And of course I have to mention that the cinematography and the music is truly beautiful. Especially when they two of them are together.

I gave this drama an 8.5 and definitely watch again when I have time.

A dark drama with a heavy concept. So, who was the real criminal here? The stalker who "abdacted" the girl or the parents, the teacher, her classmates? This drama makes you think a lot about right and wrong and how grown ups can destroy the personality of a little kid. Other than that, the performances were really good, especially from the two leads. However, the teacher character was overplayed and he ruined the atmosphere of this drama for me. Finally, the ending was kind of confusing and tragic at the same time.

So people are saying this is dark drama when really it is not...... So our girl (on the day she was going to kill herself) is "kidnapped" by a guy in a mask...... but is it kidnapping or rescuing when that girl gets beat by her parents and raped by her pervy teacher at school? I will let you be the judge but this is really something for sure. Seems to be based off a manga so I am not clear on how the story will go but from just the first two episodes I find it strangely cute and very heart warming to say the least.
If you are on the fence because of the description then please take a look and give it a chance .i think he didnt kidnapped if we take a look on otherside he actually rescued her ffrom her filthy fucking life now she is happy with him who he is protecting her,giving her happiness not doing anything wrong until. if she can find her happiness with him wats wrong than ?

This was on my PTW list for a long time. The synopsis sounds interesting, but it was my mistake not to check on the manga first (at least to see the drawing).

That said, the only amazing thing about this drama is cinematography and the beautiful settings. Even the thrown photos on the floor looked so beautifully scattered. LOL. In short, the main theme of this drama is beautiful-ness (instead of dark-ness). Not sure about the story in manga but the drawing looks very pretty too.

Other than that, the pacing is super slow. It feels more like watching a movie to me, but in movie everything will be wrapped in 2 hours. While this is only 24 minutes per episode, it feels like a 1.5 hours watch for each....haha because the progress of the story is so painfully slow like snail! And to make things worst, our director is a fan of slow-motion scenes. There were countless of slow-mo throughout the drama.

While the production team were focusing on how to make things beauty, they forgot the most important thing, emotion! Seriously I did not feel anything from both of the protagonists. Some part of story-line also did not make any sense to me. Again I don't read the manga so not sure who to blame here..

As I already mentioned, the strong point of this drama is cinematography. There are couple of interesting techniques used in this drama that are worth to check for. I won't write it here to avoid spoiler. And just because of that I rated this 8. Otherwise this should have been around 7 or 7.5 only!
