1. I enjoyed it.... [Rating: 7/10]
Not your fast-paced drama and the story needs a reality check but still, it's thoughtfully scripted and the acting (esp by Kyon Kyon) is good. The story invovlves three married women at crossroads in their marriage. The main problem is that there is literally no chemisty between any of the three leading ladies and their men. Still, I liked the dialogue and some of the insights that came through as the plot developed. A comforting drama but you have to be in the mood for it.

2. Affairs abound [Rating: 7/10]
This story is similar to Toshishita no Otoko in that there are lot of affairs; but unlike that drama, "koi wa Nan Nen Sundemasuka?" is strictly about affairs and love not the larger idea of living honestly like "Toshishita no Otoko."

This is a well-acted drama, but don't look for hard-core tearjerkers here. The pot simmers, but never reaches a boil.

4. Realistic Depiction of Women in 30s [Rating: 9/10]
I love the cast. I love the storyline. Love Yuko's thoughts. Itoh was very gd-looking in the drama. Ending is believable and realistic. Heart-warming. One of the best dramas I've watched! I guess it's not meant for younger generation cuz they may not be able to relate to the problems women in their 30s face.

5. Not a bad drama [Rating: 6/10]
This drama is surprisingly quite interesting. Ito Hideaki gave quite a good performance in this drama. It was a new change to see young guy falling in love with an older woman. The ending gives you a feel good kind of feeling.

The title of this drama is actually "Koi wo Nan Nen Yasundemasuka?" It didn't grab me right away in the beginning, but the mounting events and pensive feel slowly drew me in. Overall, I enjoyed it very much and looked forward to finding out the conclusion of each character's story. I wish Iijima Naoko's marital issues had more air time, because it seems her situation is treated more like a comic relief device. Great performances by the whole cast all around.

I saw this dorama a quite long time ago. But I think that it was great. Great because with 3 different couple stories melting each other they managed to set up a credible dorama where you'll develop you're own point of view. It has nothing special, an everyday life dorama but that's why it's interesting. You'll feel close to at least one of the carachters here! enormous chemistry between the actors! g,r,e,a,t!

Surprisingly a good drama! the 3 actress are really great in this show.. esp. hitomi aka sakiko in the show..

defintely worth watching.. the show shows their courage to find love and also to give up love. touching show!

* i still think that akiko is not very suitable to be the daughter of hitomi.. both look almost the same age.. omg..

Once again, the Japanese writers & directors managed to capture the complex & delicate human dilema & emotions. Great cast and very real ending. Lovely & thought-provoking drama more suited for older women who can relate :-)

Great story, watched the whole series and the SPECIAL ep., it was good, Naoko and Kyon-kyon were great here. But, I must say that this drama is kinda slow. I hated Nakamura Toru's character here, thought this cause me to hate him too. ^O^

A tragic drama in many ways, not a tribute to love & marriage, more like a bitter reminder of reality. The story has some good points but the happy moments in this series are easily counted.
It was a relief when it finally ended.

Storyline is good, though some of the acting is mediocre. Though it has Ito Hideaki! I'm also a fan of Iijima Naoko, I think she's beautiful and also a great actress, from this drama and also wedding planner

Very good drama! The cast was all excellent. Some of the situations were a little unrealistic, but I liked how the story focused on married women and what the expectations they face.

after watching it, you'll learn to appreciate those around you.. and not to take them for granted. i think that once married, the man actually has to continue 'dating' his wife.
2. for3vergirl
Another family story but for older generation. Great morale comes out from this drama. True love is always important, no matter how old you are, it can still happen.
3. ballistic88
3 reasons: Yada Akiko, Iijima Naoko, and Kuroki Hitomi.
