"Some people are old at 18 and some are young at 90. Time is a concept that humans created."-Yoko Ono, 1977 (via japchaes)
Just watch the first two episodes of NHK’s newest Jdrama, HARD NUT. I’m being biased here since it stars Kengo Kora (haha). But I like it! Always been fan of detective/mystery dramas both made in U.S. or in Japan. I adorably like Ai Hashimoto as an eccentric, optimistic Math genius girl who were able to help out the police on solving cases. And, Kengo Kora in that sleek suit really, well, suits him.
It’s funny, amusing, but not over the top. It’s not even overly dramatic as well to make you feel like crying out loud. I love the pace, for me it’s just right. it’s just the police was useless, well maybe it was in a satirical way. I also love the fact that in just 2 episodes, it gets you hook to the two lead characters having been revealed as both has secrets of their own.
Kurumi (Ai Hashimoto), behind her smiling face has some sort of revenge plans probably for her family. So there is something creepy about her always being so happy-go-lucky after all. Tomoda (Kengo Kora) despite being the quiet, reserved type has been revealed being a gambler after all. I’m sensing some sort of the American film, The Departed (starring Leo DiCaprio) in which he maybe a mole just on undercover, or a gang member penetrating the police to unveil something important.
Nonetheless, after a while, I’ve found a new Jdrama to watch. The last one I was watcing was Eita’s Saikou no Rikon. And I was laughing out loud to those scenes wherein Kurumi was fangirling/ daydreaming romantic moments with Tomoda, even googling an eye on him for a few times. Kawaii desshou! I will be anticipating the next few eps.
