It follows Harumoto Itsuki, a 27-year-old employee who works at the game development company Dynamic Dream. She is selected as the project leader of a major collaborative work between Japan and China. Hayashi Fuyu is the head of a major Chinese content company, but she also happens to be Harumoto’s ex-girlfriend. This is a revenge love-hate drama between a lesbian boss and her subordinate.

Mixed Feelings

I was super into this series at first but it really lost its spark. I love a good exes to lovers trope so that really pulled me in and when that was the main focus I found the story amazing. It started losing that spark after Itsuki and Fuyu got together and I blame this all on the writers, specifically their gender. You can tell they are missing women writers. The only good part of the latter half of the show was the chemistry between the main actresses. I didn't care about anything that happened in their work problems and some "humor" was just horribly done, especially with that old man, it really didn't hit for me and I saw a lot of people having the same opinion. If we were to get a season 2 I would need it to be fully focused on Itsuki and Fuyu, take out every male character, and have women writers.

Kinda weird and bad

I hate to say it, but this show isn't great. I know I shouldn't be expecting much for a production that is relatively low budget but the GL tv series scene is seriously lacking and I hate that viewers have to get used to sub-par GL dramas. Anyway, rant aside, if you're not into GL, there isn't any point in watching this.

First of all, the plot is so strange like what even. Right off the bat in the first episode Itsuki gets SLAPPED in public and alcohol poured on her head by Fuyu and yet she doesn't react at all. The other characters and extras gawk at them but no one does anything. This incident isn't even addressed after that WTF? It's a fictional show I get it, but this reaction (or lack thereof) is so far beyond reality I was literally laughing at the ludicrousness at it all. Some of the lines said by the characters were also so out of left field and bizarre it made me think I was watching a black comedy. Not to mention the random and vaguely stereotypical comments about China that were peppered in the show ... ummmm ....

Acting was kinda bad, but I feel it's more of a Japanese drama thing than an issue just limited to this show. I'm not a fan of the over the top acting and expressions in Japanese live action dramas so I honestly could not stand how some of the characters acted (especially Chief Ro, horny illustrator guy and to a lesser extent the 2 main characters).

Music was so bad and cringey. BGMs veer suddenly from one song to another. Non-existent cinematography, unless you count the violent shaking of the camera in some scenes (wtf? why!). The only redeeming quality is that it doesn't take itself seriously and has some entertainment value from the cringey lines and plot points. Oh, and it's 23 mins per ep so it's not a total drag.

Conclusion - watch only if you are fan of GL. There is really a lack of decent quality GL shows compared to BL which is sad. I've never watched a Japanese GL before so had high hopes for it but yikessss I think I'll stick to Taiwan and Korean dramas for now.

Edit: I have since finished the whole series and WOW, it actually ended way worse than I expected. I was trying to look past Fuyu's blatant cheating as it seemed that she was forced to marry her husband due to family pressure and cultural reasons BUT NO. In the last episode, it was revealed that she married her husband out of love! what even. Isn't this supposed to be made by a company that specifically makes lgbt shows??? WHY ON EARTH would they want to force some sort of hetero-normative relationship right at the end???? and portraying both Fuyu and Itsuki as cheaters/affair partners isn't the way to go for GL dramas... like gay people are perfectly able to have relationships that don't involve cheating y'know?! I'm not even sure what is on with this show.
