Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: A drama adaptation of a popular comic written by Sekiya Tetsuji. After a year of working at a neighborhood Italian restaurant, Ban Shogo (Matsumoto Jun), an enthusiastic, cocky young college student from Fukuoka, comes to Tokyo to perfect his cooking skills as a chef in Italian cuisine. He discovers he has much to learn and has to continually prove himself to the very competitive, quick and efficient staff at the upscale Italian restaurant.
An overall enjoyable drama, Matsujun comes back with a nice drama after HYD with this tale of a chef who wants to be the best. I found the story good, was a little anti climatic towards the end but did have some emotional moments where you did get involved in it. The cast is solid, several drama vets like Sato Ryuta (Pride, Rookies, Kimi wa Petto) and others with a few good cameos like likekeuchi Hiroyuki (GTO, Beautiful Life, Smile). Music is good, the opening some is We can make it! by Arashi which suits the drama.
If you like Matsujun or cooking this is a good drama to check out….
