1. Ridiculous [Rating: 6/10]
I watched the whole thing... and I still don't understand why the backdrop is a hospital and the medical career. Everything in relation to the hospital was absolutely ridiculous. They could have created the same story with a different backdrop profession and the drama would have been exactly the same. This is poor writing.

The first episode left a really bad taste in my mouth, but as the episodes progressed and as Manami's character calmed down and became more "real", it wasn't so bad. Completely forgettable, but not painful to watch.

The actors were great, even if their roles were poor. That's about it.

I don't think I would recommend this drama, unless you're a hardcore fan of Manami's. She was uber kawaii in this one.

2. Boring.... [Rating: 2/10]
Just finished the last episode and the drama became more and more boring. The story wasn't something new and was one of the worst medical I've seen so far. The Main Actress was OK, neither good nor bad. The only good thing on this drama are the support actors.

3. Minami strikes gold [Rating: 8/10]
Konishi shows the assured intelligence that makes her a natural for a doctor's role (not the first time for her), and this is a double-threat combined with her extreme cuteness. Her first chance to star, and she makes it work.

5. Cute drama [Rating: 8/10]
This is just a fun cute kind of drama. Nothing too serious but really light enjoyable fun. A good cast and an okay story make this worth watching.

Dont know y so many ppl hated this dorama... I mean... i laughed a lot while wactching it.. (specially when the instructor were played by Papaya~san and Namase Katsuhisa...)

The actors were really funny... even Went Eiji from WaT surprised me and did a good job (his expressions were hilarious!!!) Altough i must say that Koike Teppei is waaaay better of an actor than him...

Konishi plays her character really well... (finally!! Shes the main actress of some dorama... just for that i give this dorama one more point...)

Well... i really enjoyed this dorama... I mean.. its easly forgetable... but yet enjoyable!

The main actress was cute. I couldnt watch it all the way through, kind of too childish and her character was a little too annoying. Ive seen her do better roles and this definetely wasnt a good one.
3. Comments by CdMe [Rating: 5/10]
there are only a few good laughs in the whole series. namase katsuhisa makes these first episodes worth watching. the rest of the plot and dialogue is quite drama-standard and bored me big time!

Konishi Minami was awful in this series...she was jittery and all over the place...and keep that hair long!...she's usually a good actress but maybe being in a comical lead was not for her....

it's not that boring but It doesn't mean that it's fun. No emotions in it. You can watch this drama like you could look at the wall of your room during one hour daydreaming....

A totally forgettable drama. I just watched it because Manami was in it. Although it wasn't painful to watch, it just didn't fit my taste. I wouldn't watch it again.

ive seen some of it but it just seems to drag on... so its okay ill try to finish it hopefully it gets better towards the end and i can give it a better score

One point each for Manami Konishi, Katsuhisa Namase, Papaya Suzuki and Ryo. They should get some reward for having to appear in this fiasco!

This drama was a little on the boring side but there were plenty of cute and funny moments.

Downloaded because of Konishi Manami. Turned out to be boring. Never finished it.

An interesting watch. Konishi does an awesome job for her first starring role.

not so bad, but not really good.
Too much tears and cries for nothing.
