Usually japanese dramas are better in the psychological genre, but wow, this drama definitely surprised me.

The story is engaging and fully thought out, every episode unveils its own mystery and sets fire to another. What i enjoyed about this drama especially is how it played with the viewer's mind. The story leads you in one direction until you realize you've been looking at it in an entirely wrong perspective.

The characters are well developed and the actresses/actors were well suited for their role. Angela Chang did a wonderful job playing the identical sisters and i definitely enjoyed Julian Yang's portrayal of Jia Wei.

I finished this drama within a day (watched it till 3am in the morning OTL) and highly recommend it to others. :D

"I had no regrets until I met you"

Oh Wong Kar Wai, you truly know our hearts and how to play with them and tear them apart into indistinguishable threads.

Happy Together, unfortunately overshadowed by Wong's other beautiful and worthy works like In the Mood for Love and Chungking Express, is a raw depiction of a volatile, chaotic, but passionate relationship of two men from Hong Kong. The film, outlined in a tone of melancholy and loneliness, follows the deteriorating relationship of Lai and Ho, two conflicting personalities that can't seem to find peace. Its not a comfortable watch, nor it is a romcom as its title may suggest.

As with any film by Wong Kar Wai, the cinematography is beautiful and worth re-watching for that alone. Also, Chang Chen is adorable and deserves more love, please watch it for him, please.

A lighthearted, airy, and cute drama. Not one of the best in its selected category nevertheless still an enjoyable (and purposefully silly) watch.

The cast was definitely a highlight. This show surprisingly got me into Furukawa Yuki (He is so adorable!) though his character in the show could have been written better instead of coming across as just another plot device. He and Kawaguchi Haruna had great chemistry and i am definitely looking forward to seeing them in future dramas (hopefully together?).

The rest of the characters were just as easily likable (especially Mugi!) and i enjoyed seeing them develop with each episode.

Unfortunately, (in my opinion) the story was poorly written. It seemed hastily pasted, attempting to come off more poignant then it really was.

Despite this, i would still recommend this to anybody looking for a short, easy watch. Obviously since i watched to the end, i liked it enough, but probably not enough for a re-watch. :)

I might be alone in how much i loved this movie but i just wanted to get my thoughts across.

the ending doesn't have to be satisfying for the movie to be "good". unlike others, i adore this movie for staying true to its realistic roots and portrayal of a first love.

i think from all these light and fluffy dramas these days where the girl always gets her fairy tale ending, many watchers get the misconception that this is how all stories should be. (don't get me wrong, light-hearted dramas are my muse)

"an introduction to architecture" is beautifully (and bitterly) realistic. the younger characters are definitely believable, flawed and confused just as any adolescents would be. and their older selves just as vulnerable internally despite their matured exteriors.

Truthfully, i don't think i would re-watch this again because that would be too cruel to my heart but i would still recommend this to other watchers who don't mind a realistic input and output in a movie.

so don't go into this drama excepting a fairy tale, watch and appreciate its raw vibe and depth, especially in the character's emotions.
