Cute as usual

If you're a fan of the j-movie prince of tennis, I know you'll secretly smile when I say his name; Hongo Kanata, the cute and mischievous young tennis genius. Though I wasn't really a big fan of Kanata, but watching him acting I can hardly help myself from falling in love with that cute little face. He's my age now and surprisingly he still has that good-looking, cute and innocent trait the last time I watched him in Yankee-kun to Megane-chan back in 2010.

Among my favorite drama of him is Himitsu no Hanazono (Hanazono’s Secret) in 2007. It's an 11 episodes comedy drama with maybe 10% trace of romance in it. Story about 4 guys and a girl; 4 brothers who're taking care of each other since their father, a famous artist died when they were young, and an ordinary workaholic girl who by fate had met them.

Tsukiyama has just been transferred from being a magazine editor of the fashion department to the manga department, and she’s assigned to be the editor of a famous shoujo manga (manga genre that’s famous among teenage girls), Hanazono Yuriko who has never once disclosed her identity to public. Having a norm thought like the society does, Tsukiyama who always believes Hanazono-sensei is a young lady (since shoujo manga artist has always been females) went to meet the famous manga artist for the first time. To her surprise, Hanazono-sensei is not a lady but actually men; the 4 brothers of different unique personality.

The third brother (appointed as Hanazono Yuriko’s spokesperson and manager)
Kaname Jun as Kataoka Satoshi

The little brother (responsible for the story line)
Hongo Kanata as Kataoka Hinata

The girl (the manga editor)
Shaku Yumiko as Tsukiyama Kayo

It’s a fun drama to watch as the plot developed by resolving the conflict of why they decided to hide their identity behind a female name and not make themselves public. Starting from the beginning, this conflict appeared light and able to make viewers having false conception before gradually move on to resolving the heavier ones.

Ps: and so, Kanata is cute as usual
