1. Only for Beach Lovers [Rating: 3/10]
This show is definitely only for beach lovers. The whole drama evolves around the beach and about Nato (a kind of Japanese bean). Better to spend your money on other dramas.

More of a funny drama. It's filled with jokes about Nato and the like and most of the drama, like over 90% of it is filmed on the beach. Good for eye candy purposes, the storyline is decent but kind of jumps all over the place and doesn't make complete sense. The characters do grow on you after awhile, but I understand that this drama could get annoying for some. It does happen to lack depth and the plot seems unpolished to me....... if you can't really stand the Nato jokes or dislike the fact that it takes place on the beach or seaside area only, then don't get it.

Beach wars Mix is I think the worse drama I've ever seen! it doesn't make any sense, even subtitled in English. Everyone in it seems to adore Nato, in ice cream, chocolate, coffee, cookies. (except the lead actress) The nato jokes are the only good thing about this show!

Suppose to be over the top funny, I found it fairly annoying.

it's a nice show with a nice cast and nice songs. ^^ i love Someday Somwhere by Shinohara Ryoko. but there is another song sung by a lady, i wonder if it's Ryoko, tat i would like to find it. ^^ it's a really nice show about friendship, trust, and being there for each other.
