My Moochy Boyfriend looked like a good drama. Comedy, check, good actor, check, based on a manga, check. However, the story was simply over the top. The leading lady could not be THAT forgiving!! She was trying to change Sho, her boyfriend, but it was clear that she was failing, as she was pulling back at the last minute and just overspoiled him. On the other hand, Sho, even though he loved her, he was not even willing to change.... So, why stay together? At least, there were some fun moments and they looked good as a couple. But, Masataka Kubota could have picked a better role. He is not my favourite actor, but I can at least admit that he is good. And this character just felt less. The girl was extra cute! Kind of saved the drama for me. Finally, the comedy scenes were handled well and they didn't look rushly made or fake, though the events were clearly too over the top to actually happen... Overall, 6 out of 10.
