Synopsis
Three young men who come from very different homes happen to meet and find themselves bound by the common characteristic of having a father with whom they cannot relate. The three of them decide to rebel against their fathers and finally set out on their own to study in Los Angeles. As soon as they arrive in L.A., they discover that the school is already out of business, and that they have been duped by a con-artist. The boys now have no money and must decide if they will swallow their pride and crawl back to their fathers, or find work and stick it out on their own. This bitter-sweet story of father-son relationships stars popular idol group "Coming Century."

1. 'pu-pu-pu' = 'slackers' [Rating: 7/10]
i know it would be somewat essential to actually translate the word 'pu-pu-pu' into simple english before going into details. o-o coz i was baffled by the title the first time i heard it.
anyway, this drama is about 3 friends who decided they didnt want to settle down in life, and so they got along and did odd jobs all the time to make ends meet :) it's not a great drama, but it was entertaining to see the ridiculous odd jobs they took in each episode.

2. Great! [Rating: 9/10]
This is the first drama by Coming Century. They did a great job protraying their characters. This drama is has its funny and serious moments. It's very much like a family drama, but it also shows the difficulties of living on your own and growing up deciding what one wants to do with their life.

took me a while to blend it all..this dorama has just made it into my lists of pointless drama ever to exists...on the bright side..its hilarious..esp okada-kun's acting...but looks like he's trying too much to be a comedian...they are much better in their own show...viva v6..thts for sure!

:P the plot seems too simple. and the Comicen crew werent too mature in acting yet. a drama about 3 slackers who refused to settle down in life, thus doing all sorts of odd jobs just to make ends meet. but they were really funny & stupid at times. :)

A show every young person can relate to. I know I was going through the same thing when I watched this--I didn't know what to do with my life and I just wanted my parents to understand. Watching this made me feel like I wasn't so alone.

Interesting in watching to see the other side of Japan's youth. The ones who don't spend endless time studying and wondering if they will be able to get into their college of choice.

It's been so long I don't remember it really was about...I loved seeing the 3 of them acting together and it definitely wasn't a bad dorama.

A heart-warming story of growing pains. The members of Coming Century all did a great job. Very strong chemistry amongst them.
