Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: A 19-year-old girl burdened by a cruel destiny, a 41-year-old man living in atonement, and a forbidden love that cannot be accepted by the people around them. ?Iki mo Dekinai Natsu? is as much a social drama as it is a love story. Takei plays said girl who learns that her mother never recorded her birth in their family register. While falling into despair after finding out the secret about her birth yet wholeheartedly trying to live to regain ?herself?, she happens to run into a former journalist (Eguchi) who is suffering from a deep scar in his heart himself. Although they could be father and daughter, they start to develop much stronger feelings for each other, a love forbidden by society.
AMAZING! Must watch~
At first I wasn’t sure how much I would like this drama because it didnt really appeal to me at the beginning. As the story goes on, you really begin to feel for the character’s problems and even get frustrated at the helplessness of Rei-san. It’s not completed yet but from what i’ve watched, im completely enthralled and can not wait for the romance to begin. The age gap may be large but i am not one to be insulted by that so its no problem for me :) The actors just make everything that much better. I am a big fan of Emi Takei (Rei)‘s acting and am glad that she is getting better with every drama she does.
Cons- the only con to this drama is the strange Adele opening that does not seem to fit the drama all that well, but if you like Adele then it shouldnt bother you. Another song would have fit better in my opinion.
