I decided to watch this drama out of curiosity on Takahata Mitsuki, she’s a rising young actress in Japan and rumored girlfriend of Sakaguchi Kentaro. But more than that, the storyline got me hooked because it’s now rare in J-dorama world to actually have a love story.
So, here’s a summary of Kahogo no Kahoko

“Totsuzen desu ga ashita kekkon shimasu” is another drama this season tackling the issue of women in the marriage mart. I love Nishuichi Mariya so this review can be pretty biased so I’ll limit my review to plot and characters. However, since this is also flumpool vocalist’s Yamamura Ryuta first foray into the acting scene, I think it’s only given that I comment on his acting as well.
Anyway, here is a summary of Totsuzen desu ga ashita kekkon shimasu : Episode 1–2

I was gonna compare “Tokyo Tarareba Musume” to summer season’s “Hayako-sensei…” because it features different women in the marriage mart. However, Tokyo Tarareba is a bit different because the girls were pretty comfortable with their single status, happy with just an all-girls’ night-out until one blonde ikemen reminded them that they are no longer girls and their “what if” (tarareba) stories no longer fits them.
Here is a quick recap of Tokyo Tarareba Musume : Episode 1

The start of 2017 has been very busy for me, which I think is a good thing because work means money, but it also means that I have less time to watch dramas. In fact, up until when I started writing this post, I only know three Winter dramas and that’s A LIFE, Quartet, and Totsuzen desu ga. Thankfully for jadefrost, who does an amazing job of compiling and summarizing each dramas per season, I got to read every existing dramas for Winter and decide from there.
Anyway, here are some dramas I’ve checked this season that moved me (if I’m actually moved).

We have reached the final episode and I’m so glad that I was able to finish this recap when I only started this out of a whim. Nevertheless, Jimi ni Sugoi‘s ending isn’t what I’ve expected, but if there’s one thing I learned from this drama is how we are sometimes led to a different path than the one we’ve always wanted.

If cigarettes is a gateway drug then a hug is a gateway to more intimacy. Tsuzaki and Mikuri haven’t even held hands yet but the every Tuesday hug proves to be a pre-cursor to better days ahead.

[Sorry for the delay of JNS recap, it’s the holiday season and I’m pretty busy with parties and gift shopping so I haven’t been watching dramas, but I’ll try my hardest to finish this recap by New Year.]

The next two episodes are so warm and fluffy that my heart doesn’t know whether it should do a sommersault or just be still and let it melt.

Meanwhile, our pretty heroine proves she’s not just the more mature in this relationship, she’s also the braver one who is willing to take a huge leap in their fake marriage.
