Izumi Hidaka is 36-years-old and the CEO of start-up game company Pegasus Ink. Four years ago, she developed the game Love My Pegasus, which was targeted towards women and became very popular. Since then, she has been obsessed with the character Kento-sama from Love My Pegasus. One evening, Wataru Igarashi suddenly appears in front of drunken Izumi Hidaka. She is shocked by Wataru Igarashi’s appearance, which is just like her game character Kento-sama. Wataru Igarashi is a 23-years-old man. But, Izumi Hidaka is disappointed with Wataru Igarashi. Except for his physical appearance, Wataru Igarashi is the opposite of her well-mannered, cultured, and vivacious game character Kento-sama. (Source: AsianWiki) Edit Translation

More than just a romance drama featuring an older woman-younger man

Before we get to it, let me warn you that this review contains a lot of spoilers regarding the drama and the overall plot and hence, proceed at your own risk.

As always, let me start of this review by providing a brief summary of the plot. In short, the drama tells the story of a 36-year-old Hidaka Izumi, CEO of a start-up game production company who vows to change Wataru Igarashi, an uncultured 23-year-old to become a person just like ‘Kento Sama’ - a fictional game character and her ideal man.

At first glance, one would assume that this is just another romance drama featuring an older woman and a younger man however, there’s more to it than just that. In some ways, the drama is a complete opposite of what one would expect based on the synopsis. In the sense, the drama doesn’t just focus on the romance aspect but also touches on themes such as ‘Friendship’, ‘Sense of Belonging’ and ‘Fandoms’. Therefore, it can be said that the romance is more like a subplot than the main focus which I personally didn’t mind. Secondly, I also really liked the fact that there are no villains in this series which is rare in dramaland (if you ask me). Next, another aspect I absolutely loved was the acting which was convincing and cringe-free. All the actors did a brilliant job thereby, making the drama a lot more engaging. Additionally, I must also add that the budget for the drama seemed to be on the high-end cause the cinematography and the props used were of really good quality. And lastly, I really liked certain aspects of the plot (emphasis on ‘certain’) and found them quite relatable especially the scenes where Wataru is trying yet struggling to learn new skills and the scene where Izumi completely lost interest in the one thing she really liked. For some reason, those scenes really spoke to me.

Now, regarding my dislikes, although I don’t have any major complains but I was slightly dissatisfied with one particular aspect of the plot - Our leads dating other despite having feeling for one another. I get the fact that these things happen in real life too but I’m personally unsure as to how I feel about it cause it really made me feel bad for their significant others especially in Izumi’s case. Her decision to date her colleague just to ensure he remains by her side was off. On any other day, I would have applauded her decision but in this instance, it just came across as forced and unnecessary. Honestly, in the end, I just feel that had the leads been honest about their feeling from the onset, they probably would have been able to avoid the unnecessary heartache. But I’m glad they corrected it towards the end.

All in all, this was a good drama with a solid start which unfortunately declined slightly in the second half only to pick up in the finale. But with that being said, I’d still wholeheartedly recommend the series to those looking for a drama with a mature yet realistic romance.

Despite having a few dull moments, it's still an entertaining watch...

The show definitely takes you on a ride of emotions. You'll get happy, sad, frustrated at times, but you can't stop watching. The show is just a rom-com, but it still manages to give its audience a few messages that we're aware of, but often end up overlooking in life...

Story:
Even though the story wasn't something new, as you can tell from the description, I liked the way it was executed. I liked the way the story was developing, until it started to get a little boring in the middle. It can get a little frustrating to watch, but if you're patient enough, you'll be able to enjoy the show.

Characters:
The FL is an amazing character. She is a strong woman who's worked her way up to being the president of a company that makes otome games. She's a very nice person, and always thinks about the people she cares for. She's passionate about her job. But, she's not quite the perfect character she might sound like. She has flaws too. She makes mistakes just like any other human being, but that didn't make me not like her. I actually like her character, even though her actions sometimes upset me.

The ML starts off as a character with no hope. He doesn't like working hard, and neither does he have any manners. He's rude, but I like the fact that he was always straightforward. The character development that he has is amazing, and I really love his character. I didn't even remember the kind of character he was in the beginning...

The supporting characters do an equally good job. I like the second female lead the most. Despite the common trope, she's not a bad person. She's a very confident, smart and nice woman. All the characters in the show have a really strong bond and it's lovely...

The Music:
'Runaway' by Dean Fujioka and 'Love song' by URU are absolutely amazing songs. The catchy theme song for the opening and the ending song really make the entire show experience a lot better. The background music is also pretty good.

Spoiler to the ending:

If you're wondering if it's a happy ending, it depends on how you see it. Despite the many obstacles in the leads' way, they end up together. I wanted to see more of them cuz' they are really cute together, but, I get that there wasn't enough time left. Everyone gets a happy ending. The show ends on a positive note.


I really enjoyed watching this show. Kinda sad that it's the end but, I really loved it. I'd definitely recommend it to someone looking for a light rom-com, but there are a few heartbreaks in the show too. I'm surely gonna miss this show...
