Kurosawa, who works for a film production company, meets Akiko, a divorcee and single mother, who works at a publishing house. Through the efforts of Akiko's son, Naoya, they fall in love and decide to get married. The good news continues with Kurosawa becoming an assistant producer, and Akiko's parents offering to make the down-payment for their apartment. However, things start to go wrong when the ever-generous and sometimes naive Kurosawa helps a respected friend by co-signing on his financial obligation. A warm and occasionally wacky comedy for the whole family.

Good News is one of my all time favorites. I watched every single episode awaiting each suprise. Good News was a good show for the family (My mom and Dad got in to it too) And I really Liked The show! It's definatly a Dorama to watch ^-^ So Go watch it Fast!

2. A show for the family [Rating: 10/10]
This show is really a good family show. Shows how 2 strangers come together and build up a strong family bond in spite of all the problems they face. They stick together and support each other. This really touched mi.

Though it hoped to convey hope, the dorama left me depressed after all the misfortunes. My very first Nakai-kun dorama and his acting is quite good but could be better. I also noticed that he's not a bad looking guy after all. :-)

saw it a long time ago. you wanna keep watching just to see when will the protagonist is going to get some good news. sano shiro is so evil in this! he's just as evil in The Princess Blade but that's for another time.

Oh dude, Sano Shiro again! And his roles were great! I like his lawyer role best, and what's up w/ that piece of chalk?

Story of two people who fall quickly and deeply in love-and the little boy who brings them together. Highly recomended!

Some parts are totally outragous but ended on a very delightful note.

Quite a strange drama but enjoyable. Stars Nakai Masahiro of SMAP.
