1. Avoid this one like it was the plague!! [Rating: 1/10]
Fans of faye Wong and would-be fans should look elsewhere to get their Faye-fix. Not only is Faye's character terminally annoying, but the very idea that someone hiding in a foreign country under a fake visa would make life uncomfortable for the person she's sponging off of is outrageous. Any sane person would go out of her way to make life easy for her benefactor, but no~~ not in "Uso Koi".

Every episode tries to hang you over the same old, tired cliff. Will her secret be revealed this time?? I stopped caring by episode #6 and I was surprised I watched it that long. Actually, the only secret was how bad this show was -- and now that I have written this, the secret is out.

I didn't really like Faye Wong in this Dorama, maybe because she didn't really speak Japanese alot ... and her english was quite bad too

I loved the relationship between Nakai kiichi + Nakama Yukie .. it was too bad that *********** happened :( ... wish they could change the ending

For some reason I didn't like this dorama, but for another strange reason ... it kept on making me carry on watching it *lol* ... so it must be good?

Faye Wong was only OK in this series. Consider she does know the Japanese language and this is her first TV series.Too generous to give a 10 or 9 even if you are fans of Faye Wong!!!

Not a bad debut drama for Faye Wong but the story is a little bit draggy in the middle.The humor in the drama is also not bad.A drama that is worth seeing

Ok I'm quite a fan of Faye Wong's music but I've never seen her act before this. I thought her English was pretty good, more fluent so than the much lauded Koyuki. She didn't speak much Japanese though and usually spoke in English. The show was pretty predictable from the start but none the less enjoyable.Nakai Kichi (he never disappoints !) gave a good performance as usual.It's also great to see a drama where the hero wears glasses and is an older actor ( and therefore far more representative of the Japanese population as a whole than most of the idols that appear in dramas )! Osugi Ren also does a good job and his English is not too shabby !

This dorama is quite annoying. Faye wong is one of the worst actress I have ever seen. The first couple of episodes she kept on grinning for no apparent reasons, it's like she is not taking the show very seriously or that she does not know what kind of face to put out when the camera is filming . After the 3rd episode, I just gave up and decided to watch the last 15 minute of each episode. I must admit that Faye's English is not that bad however, it just seems like she was reading cue cards during the whole show. The plot is quite annoying because it's so simple but they had to dragged it out for 12 episodes.

How important is Faye Wong? She stars in this Japanese Series, and does her whole part in English! And the other actors just carry on as if they understood what she said. No awards for writing, or logic, but I really enjoyed watching this show.

A straightforward storyline dragged out for 11 episodes that might have been saved had there been any chemistry between Nakai Kiichi and Faye Wong. Sadly not though the supporting cast were great fun and there was a good dose of humourous scenes.

Actually, it should be a pretty good story, LOTS of funny and entertaining scenes! It's just don't develope much. And, Faye Wong is NOT a good actress >_< Plus, she and Nakai Kiichi don't have any chemistry at all!!! Too bad...

So I thought I was a Faye Wong fan, but after this, I might be a Faye Wong hater. It was terrible. Extremely terrible. I REALLY wanted to enjoy it, but after the first episode I realized I couldn't bear watching another minute of it!

Maybe I watched this dorama with poor English subtitles, but this dorama wasn't very good. Everything was so unrealistic and the ending kinda feels morally wrong.

Don't remember much of this show as it was quite boring. Plus it was hard to catch it weekly on tv. Gave up halfway.
