This was such a quick and interesting drama. While I feel like my emotions and thoughts are still reeling, I feel like I at least need to try to write my thoughts out before I forget them. Lol

I want to start off with I really really REALLY REEEAAAALLLLLYYYYYY hate homewreckers. They turn my stomach and just disgust me, So while Reina played Kaori very well, I hated her character through the whole thing. If it weren't for that bit, I really would have loved her characters because of how sweet and, oddly enough, pure she was. So I can't be mad that everyone loved her. It's crazy and a first for me to see. It's not everyday everyone knows you are a homewrecker and people still love you to death, and those that meet you will love you as well. It's weird.

I also hated how she had no backbone. There were times when you could see she had a fighting spirit (like when he told her to look at what he came up with without consulting her) --she actually got really pissed but of course ended up liking it.. So... where was that fire through the rest of the show? Seriously? Every man around her did the typical "call the shots" thing, which I kinda hate to say because yes, they were sweet too but.... she is a whole ass person... if y'all missed that memo? She just let them decide her life and there was so many times I would have either slapped or stomped some toes in anger, she just rolled with it and let them decide so much. rwghwleghowsahfgoua GRRRRR it's frustrating. Then again, seems like they did that with all the females. Typical. (I said what I said) *sigh*

Other than that, I really questioned what was going to happen through all of this. Mostly because it wasn't a love triangle... it was a freaking octagon. Lol somebody que up that Adam Sandler song from Wedding Singer "he loves her, but she loves this guy right here and he loves somebody else, you just can't when - and so it goes until the day you die, this thing they call love is gonna make you cryyyyy-I hate you" LOL! If you've seen that movie you know what I mean. If not, Sorry I wasted your time. XD

I'm a sucker for happy endings so I guess that is where it mostly won me over. I mean, I can't hate the acting or storyline either though because no matter what, it WAS a good story and and had a lot of depth. Especially with something so short.

I'll probably update this more later.
