Juunen Saki mo Kimi ni Koishite Review

Title: Juunen Saki mo Kimi ni Koishite
AKA: Still Love You In 10 Years
Genre: Romance
Episodes: 6
Broadcast period: 2010-Aug-31 to 2010-Oct-05
Theme Song:
Time of Love by Crystal Kay
Cast: Ueto Aya and Uchino Masaaki.

Onozawa Rika (Ueto Aya) is a single 26-year old Book editor, who has little luck in love. One day she meets a man, who she believed was a stalker that followed her around, and confronts him, but that man makes little sense and Rika avoids him. Next day she meets him again, and he gives her a weird request, asking her not to board the bus she was waiting on. Annoyed she walks away from the busstop, walks through a park, and meets a man, Maruyama Hiroshi (Uchino Masaaki), an engineer, whom she finds interesting and exchanges numbers with.
Little does she know that the ‘stalker’ is Hiroshi, 10 years from the future, trying to fix their marriage.

So this drama caught my attention for a long time ago, ever since I read about it for the first time, which was when it was still in progress, and I was thrilled when I saw that it was up and subbed. Ueto Aya is amazing here, every scene and emotion was perfectly displayed. That said, I have to say this drama didn’t really live up to my expectations. It’s a good drama, no doubt about that, it just wasn’t that good. It had great moments, but the drama really didn’t shine through. Scenes which should have moved me, were little dull, and gosh, some of the dialogues are dull. But it’s worth a shot, if you don’t have anything else to do…

☆☆½ / 2½ out of 5 stars

♥♥♥ / 3 out of 5 hearts
