I had already watched the japanese and korean movie versions, and I liked them so much I had to watch the drama too. When it started, I thought "what? It's gonna start like this? It'll be boring, then". I kept watching anyway. The whole series was really worth and in the end I just couldn't stop crying, although I knew how it was gonna end. It became one of my favourite dramas, for sure! Yamada Takayuki was incredibly loving in this role, and Ayase Haruka was amazing too! I'd give 5 stars to this movie again and again.

For the first 20 minutes I was like "Gah this is boring, I think I'll drop it." Then boom, hooked.

Yeah... finished it in one evening.

Loved it! : D The relationship between Ryo and Yuki was so confused but it was beautifull....
As jan said it really make you think about a lot of things! for example about how much their reasons justified their actions? and about how far we can go to protect someone important to us...
I think it's a great drama because this make comes out a lot of questions! and of course the cast was good too yamada Takayuki made a great job!

It totally got me..
For the story plot, for the depth, for the complexity of their relationship and their characters...

It was so real and believable...

And it also made me cry several times...

If it is possible, I would recommend you to watch to Japan film (or novel if possible) first. This TV show is still classic. I am only recommend a way to enjoy most from this story.

If you watch the Japan film/novel first, you can enjoy the feeling of both film/novel and TV show. If you watch the TV first, it takes you a lot of time to "forget" everything because there is too much "inner feeling" in the TV show, which is absent in novel/film.

I have omitted the Korean film. My opinion is to ignore that or watch that last.
