This is the story of one woman finding her way back into the social scene after losing the "perfect" man she believed would marry her. Getting over her lack of trust in men won't be easy, but with a lively circle of friends and a youthful, matchmaking mother, her road to receiving the wedding proposal of her dreams is sure to be an interesting one.

Right before her wedding, Megumi got dumped by her fiancee. Broken hearted, she quitted her old job and wandered on the street. Suddenly, the rain started falling, and Megumi had to wait for the rain to stop under the roof of some department store, at which she met a handsome man and got a nice impression of him. One day, her mother brought some of her co-workers at the radio station home when Megumi invited her friends, Akiko and Marie over to her house, and she was surprised to see that one of her mother's collegues was that man in the rain, Kawashima. The problem was, Kawashima didn't remember her and seemed to be attracted to her friend, Akiko...

1. One of the best romantic Jdramas [Rating: 9/10]
I watched this drama almost 10 years ago and recently, I had the chance to watch it again and it's still as great as I remembered.

The main story is about a love-triangle drama between two best friends and a guy that they met through the main character, Megumi's mother. Meg's mother, who is a radio talk show host, bases her shows off the love life of her daughter and friends. She tries all sorts of tactics from bugging her daughter's cabinets, bag, and also following her around to various places to get the inside scoop on her daughter's love love for her radio program, but also to lead Meg in the right direction to get her true love.

After all the recent flashy dramas that I've been watching, it's nice to return to a good old-fashion story with no silliness or thrills. This drama almost reminds me of a Korean drama for its simple romantic storytelling, but without the overly melodramatic scenes.

If you want a sweet, but mature romantic drama, this is the one for you.

2. My all time favorite [Rating: 10/10]
This has to be one of the first dramas that I've watched, and after all these years it still is my favorite. I loved all the love triangles that occurred in this show. This so far is the only drama that has left me with a warm happy feeling. Very sweet, and touching, with a fulfilling ending. Highly recommend it to all. I just hope that I can find a copy of this on dvd someday.

3. Nice love story [Rating: 8/10]
I liked the actors and actresses in this drama. Nothing too flamboyant, but a good story and lots of good acting. Sakai Maki is very cute and you tend to want to root for her.

besides having the bombest soundtrack ever (glay-'beloved' and dos-'more kiss') i think even after all these years, this remains a classic in my book coz its all about destiny. either u go with it or go against it, each with its consequences.
