The story is about an unlikely friendship between two women. This intimate look at two lives chronicles their struggle with love, loyalty, and fulfillment. Two women with seemingly different outlooks on life come together against all odds in a fragile attempt to seek out the best of what they have to offer each other and themselves. Can their unexpected friendship survive affairs of the heart? An honest tale of two women unfolds with an end as uncertain as the friendship which drew them together.

1. Greatest Friendship drama I've ever seen. [Rating: 10/10]
The story is simple. It's about two women from different background who loves the same man. They have to struggle over their conciousness to choose between friendship or sacrifice it to fight over the same man. The drama is very touching and the good casts compliments the story which blends into a perfect mix of love story and friendship. Highly recommended.
By the way, the soundtrack is so good.

2. All-time great [Rating: 10/10]
One of the best of all time! Whereas it did not have the drawing power of any of the Honami Suzuki dramas, Narumi Yasuda's acting convinces of why she is a legendary idol. Her partnership with Akina Nakamori is convincing as the odd couple who in the end sees that their friendship is the only cure against betrayals by men and abandonment by other people. Watch it - you'll enjoy the story.

this dorama's very heartwarming for its friendship story. supported also by the music (bravo Kome Kome Club!!). a good characterization of Yasuda and Nakamori!
many dramas talk bout friendship but only some could stay forever in our mind, and this drama is one of the some.

Great drama about two women's friendship over the years. Everybody talks about Yasuda and Nakamori and justifiably so, but Matoba and Azuma are excellent as well as the two male leads.

Unfortunately, old = forgotten. There was no megastar cast (I think this drama really launched Yasuda Narumi's career, and while Nakamori Akina was well known, she was primarily just a singer at the time), but this story of love and friendship is just so well done that it can easily hold its own among the best being produced today. Plus, it is not overly melancholic or sappy, like a lot of the most popular dramas of the period. The music by Kome Kome Club is fantastic as well.
2. gaijinmark
The first in what would turn out to be a long line of excellent dramas from the pen of Eriko Kitagawa.
3. John Morrow
Interesting story flow and ending.
