"If I tell you that I like you, will this end our friendship?" One-sided love is always a series of choices. I secretly think about you, but an invisible wall called "friend" stands in my way. I wanted to break down that wall, but I couldn't... A manager chasing his dream, and the regulars who lost their dreams. All sorts of human dramas take place in this restaurant. Why do sweet-sounding things like love and dreams hurt so much? A short drama series set in a peculiar café, each depicting a step forward and growing up.

A cute mini series

// First time making a review


The story was simple and at some episodes, it made me feel wanting more and thinking that the episode ended fast but also at some episodes, it felt so long and was dragging. Maybe because I watched the episodes in one whole cut but still it is a mini series that you can watch whenever you feel it.

The acting was a bit lacking for the male lead, it felt like his character on the series and on their film was just blurting out lines. But Natsuki and Takeda Rina were the ones that I felt also their manager/director.

The song/ost was cute, especially the ending.

While this is a light hearted mini series, I couldn't see myself rewatching for the story. But since Natsuki Deguchi is the FL, I might rewatch it. So this is just based whether or not my fave j actresses was casted.

Overall, I liked the air of the drama, the lightness, and the characters (specially fl).

Too short....

....I want more! This was too cute and I only wish it were longer, like a full drama instead of 8 short, 7min episodes.

Nevertheless, they managed to tell a sweet story about a café restaurant owner and his employers, who, when the place is closed, use it as a set in order to fulfill the owner's dream of becoming a film director. The cook has a crush on the part time waiter/main actor/her best friend and spends her time mooning over him not daring to say anything. Eventually she gets the role in the film her boss is making and has the opportunity to confess....

The main topic of all dramas, though not only, seems to be lack of communication and the courage to say what is important. The girl is in love, the boy as well. There is another couple having crushes on them but they are completely oblivious. They are young and think that they have a whole life in front of them, that they have enough time to take things slowly. But if you do not stand up and bravely face the issue, it might disappear, never to come back. Unrequited love is such a time waste! Friends to lovers is a very difficult step to take because people are afraid of losing a friend without getting a lover in return so they prefer status quo! The FL here found a way to live her romance through filmmaking. The ending is open: will they stay friends, or will this push them closer together. The FL lobbied for the role certainly in order to push their relationship gently in the wanted direction....So much clever thinking and plotting....

Another topic here is your dreams and what are you willing to do to realize them. The doubts the cafe owner has are made more evident with two incidents: a visit from a former uni friend now a famous director and a disgruntled customer raising hell. Soon enough he is shown that his passion for film making has infected his restaurant staff and that they want to continue with him. The spirit of creativity, friendship and respect has made the little group a tight unit, like a family where nobody is left behind....

The actors were all good but the main actress Deguchi Natsuki is the most beautiful Japanese actress I have ever seen. She has a dazzling smile, there is light shining out of her evident just by her mere presence. This actress is young but will go far....

Everything is warm and sunny in this mini drama: the cinematography is just full of sunshine, very uplifting ! I wish it were longer.....
