1. A lot of waiting, little reward [Rating: 7/10]
I really enjoyed the drama... up until perhaps the end. Although the outcome is predictable, I didn't find it satisfying. The two main characters get together literally in the last scene or so, and so the 10 episodes of waiting seemed... such a waste.

That being said, the plot was great, but it was the cast that made the drama work for me. I LUFF Kyon Kyon, and although I've seen Tokiwa, Takenouchi, and Kusanagi in various dramas before, the rest of the cast was new for me. I liked the idea of the Red Thread of Fate, and also how one can denounce it and continue to live one's life. The mix of personalities was good.

I don't know if I would recommend this drama. Although the bulk of it was enjoyable, I still felt it was a bit of a waste because I wanted more outcome in the end. But that's a personal peeve, so...

i bumped into this drama by fate. hehe. i just downloaded it without checking out what it's about. it's an old drama. more than the story, i got to appreciate how doramas have evolved in the past year. if it was already this good back then, then i'm not wondering why it's so popular these days. this drama isn't bad although it keeps you hanging most of the time. and that narrator sounds a little annoying. hehe.

I liked the premise and thought it started off well but thought the ending was a little of a letdown. Chemistry between the leads seemed lacking too though that's probably because they had few scenes together and they were playing cautious characters. A charmingly sweet story though.

Is there someone out there who is destined to be with you? That's what this drama is about. Fans of romantic dramas should not miss this one.

Reminded me of "Sleepless in Seattle" quite a bit. Sweet love story. :-)

very cute drama. the end wasn't terribly rewarding, however.

An enjoyable drama, but I found the end a little weak.

It begins...."Unmei........ "
This has to be one of the best stories ever written for a dorama, great performance by Kyon Kyon and Kiichi san.
If you have a chance, rent or buy it. And let me know how to get a copy too!
