Nakajima looks up to his father, who was a war photographer, but can only get a job as an assistant for gravure magazines. Mizuno is a provisional high school teacher, currently on probation. Nishimura is Mizuno's best friend, whose boyfriend has been avoiding her since she discovered she was pregnant. Ichihara works at a magazine where he is being blackmailed into sexual favours by his chief editor. Park, on Twitter, takes on the persona of a doctor, when he is actually working at a company that sells medical equipment to disinterested doctors, and at the same time, trying to take care of his younger sister.
This is a story about the blossoming friendship of five young people who were brought together by Twitter, and their journey to finding honesty with each other and with themselves.
Cast & Credits
The situations are mature, the friendships are genuine and the love story is refreshingly real and sweet. The writing of this was very smart and truer to life than most dramas. The 11 episodes went by fairly quickly.
I really enjoyed the premise of five friends coming together by meeting through Twitter. It was such an original take on how people meet, grow to care for each other and become an extended family.
This is a slice of life piece about a particular time and stage in a person's life. It is off the beaten path from the usual standard drama fare. I loved it for that. The serious situations were handled in a realistic way that had me walking away feeling bittersweet but much more on the sweet side.
All of the characters were believable; the actors true and natural. My one small nitpick is that while I like JaeJoong and he improved in Protect the Boss, his acting in this felt a little green and new. But I did like "Doctor" and it wasn't so bad as to be distracting.
This drama really is a very nice piece of work. Sunao Ni Narenakute is an enjoyable watch, even with the angst and troubles that naturally come with the previously mentioned growing pains. This drama is about being true to yourself, learning to be brave in life and love. It is done with humor, some very stark realism and a lot of warmth.
The soundtrack was great! There wasn’t a song out of place. They were a mix of pop and alternative that fit perfectly with the age group portrayed in the drama. The songs were also memorable and this is one of those rare times I wish I owned the OST. (I liken the quality to Soulmate and Coffee Prince)
I am giving the re-watch a 10 because I know I will go back to this drama again.
I recommend this drama very highly. It is smart, fun, touching, and romantic. A WIN in my book.
The storyline was so original, It's a story about friendship, hardship and love, as we follow Doctor, Linda, Nakaji, Peach and Haru. You'll learn more about them by each episode. Every person has their own story and hardships and everything comes together eventually. It's not your typical storyline and I found the events happening in the drama very surprising and mostly totally unexpected. And I definitely loved that :).
The acting was very well done, but not really that special or anything. I must give real credit to Jaejoong though. This was his first real drama and I think he did really great. Not to mention he is just so cute in this drama and he is so handsome :3.
Now about the music. The music was absolutely perfect. It was a mixture of different genres and each song fit amazingly well in this drama.There is a great harmony in the use of the music in the drama, not too much and not too little. You don't get bored by it.
I really recommend this drama. It's a very intriguing drama worth watching and I promise that you won't get bored at all and won't regret it!
