Samejima Reiji is a highly competitive president of a hotel chain. When his hotel doesn't place number one on national rankings again, he is devestated. And then the president of the nations number one hotel chain mocks him and talks about relationships and marriage! Reiji decides it's time for some romance in his life. And suddenly there appears Misaki, an innocent and honest girl who loves to serve customers and starts working at his hotel. Meeting her also starts off his mission to get a girlfriend. Just that he has major problems being romantic and understanding the needs of women - or human beings in general.
A romance drama with Ohno was something I didn't expect yet. I love his acting in so many dramas already, I was really excited to see this. Turns out his character is a mix of a bratty Kaibutsu-kun and a cold Enomoto Kei. I know Ohno can do the heart-warming faces and falling-in-love-smile frim Maou. But I guess they wanted to make this a romance COMEDY so badly, they didn't need that kind of acting from Ohno. I enjoyed watching the whole work-related things. I also liked the beginning of the relationship. And I liked that they let Reijis character stay true to himself all the way and didn't change him to be a good partner somewhere in the middle, but that he always was a bratty cold CEO from beginning to the end. But I didn't like how stupid he sometimes seemed. Of course he might have no experience with love and thus be a bit nervous. But sometimes it was over the top and annoying. Especially with the "main crisis" I had a lot of problems. I thought about not watching on, I didn't like how Misakis character turned out to be (even though I had the feeling her character was really flat?) but there were some nice characters like the driver or the secretary. Or the owner of the number one hotel chain. They made me watch a bit longer and in the end even finish the drama.
It was a nice drama and in the end I enjoyed most parts of it. But I felt like there was so much chemistry lacking and the acting of the male lead was a let down. They could have made it less comedy and more romance or at least a tiny bit more serious. It sank from a 5* to a 3* drama for me, because I didn't enjoy the second part of the series much.
