My Score: 7.5/10
Summary: An enthusiastic and energetic college kid gives everything he has selflessly until he finds himself totally in debt. Even then, he manages to keep his cheerful and sincere demeanor and live optimistically.
He gets involved with a man who’s opposite to him; rich and only cares about money.
Review: This drama is pretty enjoyable! Though there wasn’t much suspense or cliff-hangers, I still had fun watching it. It’s more of a drama to watch while relaxing or if you need a positive boost in your life, not if you want something addicting.
I found myself laughing within 8 minutes of the first episode. Oguri Shun is really cute and funny in this drama – his facial expressions were hilarious.
This is mostly a comedy, but it also has a bit of serious drama. The drama in this show is mostly there for the purpose of creating touching moments, though.
Omu Omu, the rich debtor, caused most of the drama’s conflicts, but he didn’t really come across as a evil guy. His views were just different and he came across as confused about Kazumi’s, (Oguri’s character), life philosophy.
I liked how straightforward and civil Omu Omu and Kazumi were towards each other, even though they couldn’t see eye-to-eye.
Kazumi’s philosophy was really interesting to think about… he lived putting others before himself and kept smiling through any hardship. The plot was pretty much Omu Omu vs. Kazumi. While Omu Omu only cared about money, Kazumi only cared about other people’s feelings. I feel that both characters had taught each other something by the end of the drama.
I also really loved the side characters. They were all appealing in their own way, (especially Miura’s character, who was adorably timid and sweet).
~It’s also interesting to note that Oguri Shun started dating Yamada Yu while they both acted in this drama. They eventually registered for marriage in 2012.
