Cast & Credits
Story: Family story of growing older, growing up, love and all the craziness a solid family offers each other. Lots of lessons and reflection of leads who are 50+.
Acting: Well done in the portrayal of what is love for 50+ look, smell and act like.
Music: nothing still ringing in my head - but not bothersome
Rewatch: possible a few of the episode.
This is S2 of this drama. There is not a heavy need to see S1 to understand S2 however S1 offers the backstory of all the characters and very enjoyable. This Jdrama portrays the travails of modern, professional women & men navigating life's journey (good-bad-sad-perplexing) through many characters life lenses. Great dialogs between all characters making this a drama NOT for everyone. However many of these scenes are glimpses into a real world - when we all may be so lucky to make it to 50+ and remain smiling.
This drama is not for everyone. The romance is very different and not your typical romance.
My favorite thing about this drama is the cast. Everybody is great. The best thing is the banter between the two leads. It's really not your typical romance drama. it's very slow but meaningful. In fact, one might find this boring, and I can understand that. Just know that it is very different form your usual rom-coms.
I mean at some point in Season 2 (I think in the opening), you are watching a scene where the two main leads are talking/bantering for 10 minutes straight, no cuts to other scenes/characters, just them talking. Is it boring? maybe? but I found it charming, sweet and very heartfelt.
I'm a bit biased on my review because I found this drama when I was looking for a different kind of rom-com. It's worth checking it out in my opinion if you want to try a different type of romance and family drama.
I'm not going to give a high re-watch value because the entire series is slow/calm-moving. Like I said before there are scenes where the main leads just talk for a good number of minutes while drinking.
