Mika Kuroda is engaged to Toru Sakurai, a high-spec boy who works for a trading company. She pushes troublesome jobs to colleagues saying, "I'm about to get married", and the girls in the company dislike it. Mitsutoshi Asai, a part-time job, is a good young man who helps with work without making an unpleasant face even when he sees Mika. One day, a message arrives from an eerie account to Mika, a hated girl in the company. Starting with that, mysterious events begin to occur around her. Mika receives a direct message as if her behaviour was being monitored and a phone call at work calling her former fiancée "Hirose Kanata". On the other hand, her fiancé Toru suddenly approaches Hinata with a certain kick and has a relationship. But that was just the beginning of Hinata's horrifying revenge plan. A terrifyingly addictive revenge drama that takes place between five men and women. Gradually, the real faces and relationships of the mysterious characters are revealed.

I started to watch the drama for Yuki. I was not that interested in the drama but the trailer, in the end, ended up capturing my attention.

The story seems confusing but it is much simpler than it seems. A girl seeks revenge for the "supposed" death of her sister and her suffering.

During the first 2 chapters you already know who is who and on which side is each one of the board. It is not a story with an incredible suspense or with a great twits plot but until chapter 6 it was able to keep you expectant. Not because of the plot itself, but because of how everything was going to be resolved.

However (and here comes my great anger) is what happens during chapter 6 and 7. Suddenly everything changes and revenge is directed towards her protagonist of the person you least expected

I don' t want to give too many spoilers but the ending is very mediocre and rushed. It's not a great drama either, but the performances by the entire cast, along with the cinematography and the ost, were very good.

It hurts that disappointing ending that leaves you frozen and with a feeling that you wasted your time.

Twisted and Dark

If you're a big fan of the Twisted and Dark Korean dramas like Penthouse, Sky Castle, Mine and World of the Married as you're new to watching jdrama and looking for similar drama then watch RISKY.

This drama is not good for the faint of the heart so don't watch this if you're not used to dark elements like: cheating, morally ambigiuous characters, miscarriage, rape, and so forth. This drama is not for everyone it is made for people who enjoy dark plot.

This drama is about the main character who vows revenge on the people who brought misery of the suffering of her older sister. The main character is so genius at hacking and good at faking her feelings. She is also genius in deceiving people like the ex-boyfriend of her older sister and the woman who had a one night stand the older sister's ex-boyfriend. The elements of revenge is very very strong and filled with plot twists in Episode 1 and 2- I just WOW with the main character for so good at faking at it and her accomplice would make you shock also. In Episode 6, this is the turning point of the story made it look like PENTHOUSE making the dead bring back to life and will make you crazy that will make your mind twisted!! The ending was way too rushed and also lacks explanation how did this dead brought back to life?! And also the story didn't update to the end what happened to that crazy woman and the weak man..

Overall, I love how Japan is sooo good in making makjang stories like this I hope they can make more dramas. Revenge drama is one of the forte of Jdrama. I love how they perfectly execute the elements of revenge and they should make the story more detailed in order to be understood by the viewers.

For the actors:

Yuki Furukawa- I've seen him in Itazura na Kiss play a role in a romcom drama and he played an antihero in Lychee, and it is my first time to see Yuki Furukawa play a role as a cheater like he made my teeth gritted for doing that but he did a good job as expected with the veteran. I can say that Yuki Furukawa is your flexible actor who would do his best in a cute role or a darker role!

Hagiwara Minori - I'm not familiar with her and it's my first time to see her in a drama. She left me an impression that she's not just a cutesy but she knows how to act badass in this drama! I love how she carry out her role as an antihero and it is not an easy role that she portray to show more emotions. It is also rare for an actress in Jdrama to play roles like this. I want to see more main roles for Hagiwara Minori because she's a best actress with flexibility in portraying roles

Kinoshita Rio - I'm also not familiar with her and my first time to see her in a drama. Just like Hagiwara Minori she also did a difficult role in a drama as a woman whom being two timed with, manipulative character, problem child, obssessive character and psychopath. Her execution in this drama as that kind of character was an exellent that it also made me angry with her character but I pity her character because of her flashbacks. I want to see more dramas for Kinoshita Rio.

Miyachika Kaito - I have watched him in Influence alongside with Kanna Hashimoto and etc., He is a rising star but skills of a veteran also. He always plays the role in dark plotted drama but he never disappoint me with acting skills. He played a role in Influence as a bad boy and now he plays the role of a good man who is also a contributor and helper in revenge with the main character. I love how he carry out and he knows how to act to deceive a person in that drama! I want to see more of his dramas!!

Fukagawa Mai - I'm not familiar with her also and it's my first time to see her in this drama. I didn't expect how good she was i this drama even if she is playing a supporting role but her acting skill is superb also. In the first few episodes she knoews how to act sweet and the later episodes she knows how to act like a cold hearted person. I want to see more of her dramas

Overall, I love the actors mentioned above and all of them deserves a main lead role. I hope they could give them chance to this talented actors.
