1. A Cute Drama [Rating: 7/10]
At first glance, it seems like a cute, cheerful drama with not much substance. However, if you look past the over the top acting which happens every now and then, you'll realise that this story actually does happen in real life. People losing jobs, people forced to do jobs they don't like, making the new people do all the dirty work. This drama gives you a glimpse into the entertainment world and thanks to the humour, it doesn't get too serious. A simple plot, nothing complex or complicated. Its nice to see Ohno Satoshi playing a character that is very different from the one he played in Maou. The rest of the cast is good as well. Overall, a fun and pleasant watch.

If you're looking for a heart-warming pick-me-up type of drama, then look no further! With the ever adorable Ohno Satoshi as its lead, this drama featured kids, fun songs, dancing, comedy, romance and dreams fulfilled. Although a bit too short with a cramped final episode, this one of the best dramas of the Winter 2009 season and well worth the watch!

Suprisingly good, I better like ohno's character here than in maou. Glad to saw katase nana, she was really entertaining.

This dorama is.... hummm.. intriguing! A very different concept from every other dorama I've ever watched. At first i tough i wouldnt like this dorama at all.. i was just downloading cuz my gf is a big Leader's fan (i still prefer nino!). And much for my surprise "Uta no Onii~san" was a great dorama. The first and the second episode were a little off compare to the rest of the show.... but as the show goes on it starts to get better and better! The ending is kind of BLE! they could have manage something better... still... this dorama is pretty good one. Worth a try if u r really looking for something different (Ohno really puts up a good show.... almost as good as nino! LOLz!) And the episode where Sakurai Sho shows up is just hilarious!

The idea of Ohno being in a rock band just kills me ROFL
I personally think the character fits Ohno a lot, like how he was pushed to be in Johnny's, and that he's still stuck no matter how many times he tried to quit, and look at where he is now :-)
A good entertainment drama for the whole family, and is pretty worth all the morals too ^^

haha I loved seeing Ohno being dressed up in all those outfits!!! But I really think this drama ended too early ;_; I wanted more!!! and it was very cool seeing ohno acting in a dram again hehe it was so different from his naruse character in Maou.

This is a light drama that isn't really meant to be taken too seriously. The over-acting and exaggeration of facial expressions were unbearable at times, but the drama itself was ok.
However, this drama definitely had a memorable soundtrack.
6. Comments by delaciel [Rating: 7/10]
Well, it's 7.5 for me...
This is a fresh and fun drama. Nice act by Ohno (after MAOU, this is a refreshing act)
At first, I tought that the story would go wider and more deeper, but somehow for me it ended up a little boring sometimes...

This drama made me laugh a lot. Ohno is so cute in here! Throughout the 8 episodes ohno tries to find out why he is doing what he is doing and learns to accept what he has and everything he has done. and i love it so much!

This dorama is great but very slow. Ohno did well, he's funny and crazy but that's it..I watched uta no oniisan because of ohno. everytime he appeared, i will pay attention to him. Other then taht, i dozed off!

Rīdā has not much solo dramas and I've watched to only 3 until now. He is amazing in everything he does! I loved this one!!! Kenta is really cute and is so adorable how the kids love him!!!

Better than i thought it would be :) Cute and fun. The lead character is dressed so silly, but he is actually kind of a bad-ass that just didn't become a rockstar like he originally wanted.

Ohno's expression is SO funnie and cute :P LOLX

I love it!! Ohno is really versatile with his expressions and this is so unlike the Ohno Satoshi that I love~~ He is just so talented. A heart warming story that is a must watch~~

So hilarious! A light hearted drama with alot of good messages. I enjoyed it so much. Ohno Satoshi was so adorably funny. Loved how his character changed throughout the story.

Really cute drama! Once again Ohno-kun did a fantastic job acting. I really enjoyed all the cute goofy outfits that they had to wear on the TV show. ^___^

Riida was adorable in it! but the bad thing was that I couldn't get all the childrens songs out of my head..."momotaro-san momotaro-san~"

Thoughout the show I felt that Ohno has this tan with him ^o^. I think this is an enjoyable drama to watch kind of relaxing.

I LOVED this show. Ohno was absolutely great, and the plot was much more serious and dramatic than I thought it would be!!
