Let's break up and switch partners part 2

I’ve never done a jdrama or jmovie review so extensive for I know people would simply Google those on solely jdrama review blogs and webs, that’s one. Two, is perhaps the dramas I watched isn’t that worth the spotlight except for its few look-alike characters like this, or just a simple review or highlighted issues like this since my readers aren’t all a jdrama-otaku. And three, perhaps because eventhough the drama caught me watching it 3-4 times or even 5-6 over again back-to-back, I just don’t have time to review it; Tsuki no Koibito (Moon Lovers) for instance.

But since I’ve got a lot of time now (all thanks to the 4-months break), guess I’ll hit on it a lil (err… perhaps a lil long).

*warning: this entry is long as well as contains a lot of images (ranked after this one)*

The drama is Love Shuffle

Kei, Ojiro, Kikuta sensei and Airu live on the same floor of a luxurious apartment but have never known one another until an incident of a power failure made them stuck together in an elevator. While waiting, their conversation hits upon their love lives and the question of whether there is truly only one fated partner for everyone. As a result, they decide to try ‘shuffling’ their relationships with each other.

Tamaki Hiroshi as Usami Kei
- Head of a unit at a leading IT corporation eventhough he was graduated from a second-rate university (since the company is owned by his fiancée’s father). So loyal to his fiancée, Mei

Matsuda Shota as Sera Ojiro
- A professional free-lance photographer who gotten intimate with Reiko. Bad-boy personality but charming at the same time. Playing psychology to reach women’s heart and make ‘em fall for him.

Tanihara Shosuke as Kikuta Masato
- A psychiatrist whose past lover had died in an accident. Secretly there’s someone in this love shuffle resembles his dead girlfriend.

DAIGO as Oishi Yukichi
- A straight and innocent wickedly wealthy young stock trader who owns several companies. Too rich that he tends to spend money to make someone dear to him happy. Willing to do anything when he’s attached to someone, and used to be Airu’s stalker. Sweet and cute.

“By the way, this place is empty. Are you sure the food is good?”
“Oh, that’s because I've just asked the owner to make it a private function”
-episode 1-

Kanjiya Shihori as Kagawa Mei

A 10 episode romance, comedy drama directed by Doi Nobuhiro, Yamamuro Daisuke, and Tsuboi Toshio aired in 2009. The casts are great, and the plot gave me a constant chill throughout its episodes without a fail. The storyline developed into a more and more unexpected outcomes one after another and it’ll make you stick till the end to fulfill your curiosity of each and everyone’s personal interest of why they decided on joining Love Shuffle and whom will end up with whom.

You seriously should watch it

Ps: Matsuda Shota’s best haircut ever!
Pss: now I know it, it’s not that he’s getting thinner, he is thin!
