HYD 2 Review
The most important aspect to a sequel is simply, did it live up to the greatness of the first? So often is the case, sequels do not live up to stature of the first. Well in this case HYD 2 lives up to it and more. I really didn’t think it could get better, story wise though I’ve never been so wrapped up in a drama then here. Love, betrayal, laughs, excitement, HYD 2 surpasses HYD in all these aspects. The main cast is the same with way more cameos which is why I score it higher then the first. The music is much better, "Love So Sweet" by Arashi is a better song then "Wish" was IMO and "Flavor of Life" by Utada Hikaru really has a lot of emotional power to it as an insert song for all the dramatic scenes.
If you loved part 1, you’ll cheat on it with part 2. It keeps up with the tradition and sucks you in unlike any other drama..
