Is it pleasant to be the object of obsession of a perfect man? This is the start of a cohabitation story between a woman who thinks "It's more fun to be fulfilled with my interests rather than love," Waka, and a man who has an unrequited love while doing everything he can to persuade her, Shinobu! Waka, who's a librarian, was looking for a place to move into with her huge collection of books. In the midst of that, she suddenly reunited with Shinobu, a researcher, who suddenly kissed her back in high school while reading Tanizaki Junichirou's "A Fool's Love"...?! They suddenly started living together, and when he confessed that he "liked" her, Waka turned him down immediately?!!

How can you tell it is a romantic J-drama? Shhh! Don’t interrupt the skinship.

In J romance dramas we trust. I do declare! The Japanese really know how to deliver a short, nice, easy-binge drama that just seems to hit the spot.

There is no point in calling out the drama for being shallow or one note. Let’s be honest, most of this type of j-dramas can be summarised on the back of a small napkin. This is also the difference between a j-drama and a similar Korean show. The Korean version will overthink and overwork the plots and probably add a lunatic killer, just because. On the other hand, an equivalent c-drama will be stretched to 40 episodes, and we shall pray for deliverance from the endless angsty tropes and breakups. Not that j-dramas don’t have tropes, there are plenty. However, they are usually under a tight rein and the plot is distilled into a set of key markers so that we get what is needed just at the right juncture.

For this drama, the plot can’t be simpler. We start with a cohabitation trope between two long lost high school classmates. This is signed, sealed and delivered within the opening minutes. The rest of the show is all about how the ML confesses (repeatedly) and pursuits the FL tirelessly. All the while chipping away at her armour and make her fall in love with him even though he is the one who is obsessed with her for 10 years.

Before you jump to the conclusion that he is some kind of psycho with despicable design on the poor hapless FL, you need to take a chill pill. ;) What you will find is a ML who is totally devoted to the FL and pretty much worships her. It is also important that he respects her and will do anything to please her and protect her. All this is done in an open and adorable way. He certainly has no problem telling her how he feels. It took a little longer for the FL to reciprocate though.

Needless to say, he yearns for her, but he is willing to wait for her to accept him first. When that happens, it is on for young and old! Our skinship quota went into orbit. Don’t get me wrong. It is not sleazy nor egregious. They accept that physical intimacy is an important part of a healthy relationship. FL went from being unsure and timid to being quite bold.

Like other similar j-dramas, we see a steady progress in their relationship. There are lumps and bumps along the way but they work to overcome them as a couple. Communication is the key. They are also sensitive to each other’s feelings and will act upon signs before they fester into sores.

Most importantly, the ML helps the FL to thrive and embrace the world beyond books. There are many sweet and swoon worthy moments. Don't judge this show by its poster. ;)

If you are a romantic looking for a straightforward, swoon-y show then add 1 extra point to the score. Seriously, if you feel jaded after watching a disappointing or just plain exasperating “romance” drama, just fire this up and lose yourself in it for a few hours. This show will make you believe in true love again. Highly recommended.

Only 10 episodes: it’s a Light Modern Story

Summary: although I’m not into singles just Living Together, this story is really about budding hot first phase of romance. To those who have been in toe-curling relationships or close to this. We’ll, my husband is like the guy in the story. He will love the earth during the first few years of our marriage and we did have 10 years of just-us then kids happened. Yeah, kids happened. Watch this just as you drink a fresh cup of coffee. Nothing too heavy. No one dies here, no revenge, no family conflicts. Same old chick flick with good tasteful romance bed scene. When you’ve had kids, those scenes are really not torrid.
This drama spans a 4-month love story. In reality, that’s a drop of water in a strong current of lets -always-work-it-out real life drama. So curl back and have low expectations.

Pros:
- I like the chemistry and intensity of their looks. The guy lacks passion in his kisses. I think the lady is ready to give her all compared to the guy. The guy wants to look good on the video during kissing scene. It’s not really a passionate kiss.
- light story. No revenge, no one dies
- it’s not creepy as some reviewers said. The guy is just passionate about the lady. When you are in that passionate stage, insecurities arise. Thats predictable light hearted romance drama.

Cons:
- the guy could be more passionate.
