Gomen, Aishteru – I’m sorry, I love you: Episode 4 Life is a flicker

The scene that got me is when Ryuu is holding a fire cracker and he sees it burn out. His life is ending just like that. He’s only three months to live and the signs have started to appear. His vision gets blurry, he gets a headache and his nose bleeds. He likes Rinka and admits he’ll be lonely if she leaves and asks her to stay with him until his time runs out. He quickly puts it as a joke.

I hope Rinka notices his sadness now that she’s done with Satoru. Satoru is one dimwit. Reiko and even Touko spell it for him that Rinka likes him but he doesn’t give the thought a moment. He never saw her as a woman. He only has eyes for Touka who isn’t even sincere with him. He should have seen Touka kissing Ryuu and then he would have blamed Ryuu for seducing her. This guy is hopeless. Continue reading


Gomen, Aishteru – I’m sorry, I love you: Episode 3 Bonding

I’m going into a lazy mode. I don’t feel like doing anything these days. Must be the heat, or life doing whatever it likes with me.

I don’t like the poster. Why is everyone wearing white and looking so sad and glum? Who died?

Ryuu only hates his mother but what about his father? Why doesn’t he blame him? He left him too and it looks like he knew about his son’s existence. Why isn’t Ryuu angry at him? Why didn’t he try to meet him like he met his mother? Why is he more angry at his mother than his father?

Were they really scared about their reputation that they hid Ryuu’s existence? Then why have an affair and adultery? Why Ryuu’s to endure the pain of being left alone? Continue reading

Gomen, Aishteru – I’m sorry, I love you: Episode 1-2 Impressed!!

So this drama is a remake of the hit 2004 Korean drama Mianhada, Saranghanda (I’m sorry, I love you) starring So Ji sub, Im Soo jung, Jung Kyung ho. Just to remind you the drama’s a tragedy and by that I mean its genre’s tragedy. I may not remember each and everything about the story but I clearly remember bawling my eyes out and you did too, don’t lie! And if you haven’t watched the drama then its alright I haven’t watched every drama out there.

When I first heard about the remake, I didn’t want it to happen. We all know remakes are either a hit or a miss, so you can’t blame me (I still haven’t forgotten the remake of MARS). I soon forgot about it and then I accidentally stumbled on it. And now I’m happy to announce I actually liked what I saw. There are few changes here and there but the actual flavor is there with the Japanese touch. I like the changes and the story flows smoothly. Only four episodes are out and how many more to go?

Nagase Tomoya looks really good. Has he lost weight? I just love his hair style but his bangs need some cutting, poor guy can’t see because of them. His facial expressions and body language are on point and it’s because I’m fangirling but I can’t see any flaw in him. I especially love his smile.

I think I have seen rest of the cast but then I think I haven’t. This is what happens when you stay away from something. Gone are the good ol days when I used to watch Japanese dramas, sigh. Continue reading
