Shoji Taishi is a new third-generation lawmaker who comes from a family of politicians and had a sheltered upbringing. The womanising and not particularly intelligent Taishi and his actress wife, Kurosawa Yui, who got her big break through a drama series, have been married for five years. They act like a happily married couple for the sake of their work and public image, but their marriage has already broken down. Taishi and Yui barely have a conversation except when live streaming on social media and do not even see each other at home. Although they have grown disenchanted in their marriage, they cannot get divorced immediately due to pressure from their families and endorsement deals. The couple have no choice but to unite with the unshakeable goal of breaking up. (Source: Jdramas Wordpress) Edit Translation

Fun and light watch...if you don't take it too seriously

Really, if you start watching this, don't take it seriously or it'll piss you off.
I surprisingly had a nice time watching it. I'm rating it low because from a critical point of view, this wasn't very praise-worthy.

There's a lot of shameless cheating going on in this one. The ml is an idiot (he's literally Denji from Chainsaw Man without the super awesome powers, sad background and intelligence) , the fl is also dumb (but cute), the second ml? Let's just say he's very hot and I understand Yui, I really do. What I do not understand is why she did that to Kyoji. Kyoji , screw Yui, I'll play Pachinko with you any day.

There is absolutely no intimacy or romance between the fl and ml. If you're looking for cute fluffy stuff there is none. nada. nil. zilch. Chemistry? What's that?

So you wonder why I liked it? It was fun to watch. Filled to the brim with dumb humor. Which was honestly hilarious . The acting of the cast played a big part on why I continued to watch it.
I love how the ml wasn't actually a vile guy. He was nice. Just stupid (and horny). The fl respected him for the person that he is even though he wasn't a very good husband.

There were no evil characters either. Just people with their own stories and point of view.

I also loved how supportive the ml and fl were of each other by the end of it. And the support between the ml and 2nd ml was super sweet (My favorite part).

In a way, this drama does hit close to reality. At one point, the Fl trying to convince everyone that she did actually have an affair and that it was very wrong of her, was honestly hilariously sad. The gaslighting going on around her was insane.

And thus, this drama is indeed an average watch. Very infuriating at times. Vey funny at times. It even made me tear up, I won't lie. If you're sensitive about cheating and affairs then this isn't for you.

Life is too long to love only once

First of all if you're gonna watch this, you need to  know that with Kudo Kankuro as one of the screenwriter this will be a comedy rather than romance. If you're looking for something deep and focuses on romance you might rethink watching this.

This will give you all the cliché but it's charms comes from how the lines are out of the ordinary when they're supposed to be talking serious. They banter about the most hilarious things like what makes an affair an affair. The script openly talks about sensitive matters like it's just talking about the weather. I was laughing every episode.

Politics and show business are the main setting for this drama. The leads are public figures which makes everything messier because of the reputation they both have to keep. It gives you a peek—although of course a bit exaggerated—at what goes behind the scenes of these two worlds.

With all the comedy aside, the character development specially for Taishi is satisfying. Although like reality, when we realize what we've done it's already too late.

Nevertheless, it's a fitting conclusion for me. The concept of give and take was there & how wanting to have everything would always backfire. The moment the leads gave up on something they received good fortune in return.

The plot might not be new or remarkable but the cast definitely delivered like it's a blockbuster movie. Naka Riisa with her different expressions off and on cam. The way she can cry on her right or left eye on cue, crazy, actresses on her level are amazing. Matsuzaka Tori definitely looked the part of a no good man who can't say no to his mother. Surprised to see Nishikido Ryo back in a drama, he played the part of a soothing existence that felt fragile at times. Kamio Fuju had a short part and of course he just had to be there for some intimate scenes. At this point I'm convinced producers read the role "hot young actor good at kissing" and automatically think "Ah that's Kamio Fuju". He's charming as always despite the short appearance.

Personally, I think there's not a single drama that everyone will appreciate or love. Each drama caters to a different audience. If you find it unappealing then it's just because you're not the target audience. Give it a try and see if it's for you.
