Wowwww longgg title man!! To be honest, I don’t remember any part of the title lol. Apparently, if you translate it into Chinese (which I will translate into English) it means — You have taught me to learn what is important. Okayyy so it’s a meaningful title, that’s why it’s so long:D
It’s been a long time since I’ve started on a new drama! I’m going to recap this drama probably, but as you know, I rarely start recapping from the start, so this will just be a post on my impression of the drama.
Firstly, Toda Erika’s acting is awesome. She totally convinced me of her character and one thing that I love to observe is how actors/actresses start crying. To me, it’s really a test of one’s acting skills. It doesn’t mean that if you have tears, you have good acting skills. For example, I thought that Ady An’s acting skills weren’t that great in terms of the sad scenes, as I’ve mentioned in some of the recaps. Some may question this judgement of mine since it’s evident that her tap can be turned on pretty easily……but it just doesn’t move me. I don’t know if you will understand, but I feel like she is acting, rather than being her character.
On the other hand, Toda Erika is really good. I can see the hurt in her eyes, and in Episode 2, there was this scene where she cried from betrayal and she looked at the guy in the mirror, while the camera captured her eyes from the mirror’s reflection. I LOVE THAT SCENE.
As for the guy, Shuji, acted by Miura Haruma, I don’t have any particular feelings towards him yet. He’s supposed to be this really good looking guy, but I’ve an issue with the mole-looking thing at the bottom of his chin, and he looks really strange from some angles. You know, he’s that kind of face where he looks really really great from some angles, but he just doesn’t work the camera from other angles.
Hikari, acted by Takei Emi, is a really important character here, because she’s the one that Shuji bed right from the start. Okay for those who have no idea what I’m talking about, Shuji woke up in epsiode one finding a nude girl lying on his bed. This girl is called Hikari and she ends up being his student in school. Hikari likes him and harbours feelings of jealousy towards Natsumi (Toda Erika) who is Shuji’s fiance. She tries to break them up and Natsumi is currently hurt by Shuji when she realises that he and Hikari did it.
So ah..you probably know why I hate her. Enough said.
Though it seems like she’s a character with more than one side. She’s not just all bad… it seems like she has this other side to herself which we will find out through the unfolding of the drama’s plot.
Eager to start on Episode 4!
