My recent JDorama Favorite: Rich Man, Poor Woman (2012)

Friday, May 24, 2013
The title just sounded like unappealing to me but the drama itself is just amazing! I expected nothing about this drama because the only reason why I decided to watch this because I simply miss watching Shun Oguri. I never thought this drama would be one of my jdorama favorites. 
Plot: A 29 year old successful CEO of an IT firm who has a very interesting personality and mysterious past meets a Tokyo University student who coincidentally have the same name as his mother- whom he is trying to find since he was young. 

I finished the whole drama including the special episodes in just a day. So you can say that I'm really that hooked to this drama. I effin' love it ! The story is beautifully written, it is incredibly inspiring and touching. All of the characters are also well written and the actors really suits their roles.  

Toru Hyuga is such an incredible character. An antisocial, genius and immature guy who doesn't know how to handle people but deep inside him, he really cares. He gives all his effort to work without thinking about money and fame. He always finds a way to every problem. Oh this character is such an inspiration to strive hard to reach your dreams.

When it comes to the chemistry between Toru (Shun Oguri) and Makoto (Ishihara Satomi) well, I have nothing say but great! The romance in this drama is shown in a beautiful way, I mean, you really can see the progress on their relationship in every episode. The break-ups and make-ups are also really touching and very realistic because hardships like that are normal in a relationship. 

Sweet scenes! Kyaaa! 

I also love the OST especially it's acoustic guitar version. Very calming and relaxing. Hear it out! :)

  • "Even the single person can change the world. Make the impossible, possible. Break the shackles of old values and discover new common sense."
  • "When we are facing each other, we end up fighting. There is nothing fun to remember about us. But I...want you to be the only one I have an argument with."
  • "If you want to start something new, it has to meet failure, it has to be criticized. This is where the creation process start."
All in all, I'll give this drama a 10/10. Definitely a must watch! Not just for romance but also for way of life, it is indeed very inspiring.


  1. Oh my god, I absolutely LOVE that drama <3 None of my friends like it, but I'm glad to finally see somebody who actually enjoyed it!
    And I totally agree with you, the chemistry between Oguri Shun and Ishihara Satomi was just AMAZING. *fangirlfangirlfangirl*

    1. Well, people have different taste when it comes to this but then I don't care.
      Anyways, thank you for dropping by! :)

  2. I really LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this drama! First I watched it for Shun definitely but the girl grew on me haha. She's just so silly, obsessive, and cute XD they were so adorable. I even love the soundtrack so much, especially the acoustic version! The only downside for me is.... how the drama is so short haha <3


No harsh comments please. Be nice. :)
