Finally finished Neechan no Koibito. Despite the title, it's actually very well balanced drama. The second half didn't have many surprises but it cheered up the audience. Heartwarming and hopeful, I enjoyed this very much.

Also finished Kono Koi Atatamemasu ka. Liked it mainly for Mori Nana, it's structured a bit like Korean drama.

It has a love triangle (or quadrangle) and misunderstandings that are very typical of k-dramas.

I am about 6 episodes in and quite enjoying it. Mori Nana is quite engaging, and I am surprisingly liking Nakamura Tomoya more than I thought, he is very charming in this. I also love the theme song by Sekai no Owari.

Started watching Oh My Boss and My Daughter doesn't have a Boyfriend. Seems good so far but too early to tell. Refreshing to see Hamabe Minami in a "normal" role, she is really good at playing those eccentric, wacky characters too but I much prefer her here. Kamishiraishi Mone is good as I expected, but the support cast and story felt a bit underwhelming. The setting of fashion magazine publisher is not as engaging/empathetic as hospital, in comparison with Mone's last drama.

With the k-drama reference, I meant that Kono Koi Atatamemasu ka has 2 main leads and 2 secondary leads, and there are romantic relationships between them. Fortunately there is no misunderstanding in this one. Misunderstanding as a plot device is very much on the wane it seems, audience in general are tired of it I think.

Started Isekai Izakaya Nobu, which seems like a food drama set in some isekai mediaeval European setting. Otani Ryohei is the chef and he's a sight for sore eyes.

Speaking of Otani, I'm also watching him in Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu. Yes, I know, everyone but me has watched it, lol. First episode was pretty cute.

Oh My Boss episode 2. I thought apart from Mone chan, the rest of the characters were rather forgettable. Story telling was not as fluent as I would like. May stop watching.

My Daughter doesn't have a boyfriend episode 2. This was really fun to watch. I laughed and smiled a few times. All the characters have their own little quirks and they are all pretty likeable. Relationships between them are fleshing out too. Can't wait to see how Sora's romantic adventure will turn out. Big Grin The mother daughter relationship between Aoi and Sora is funny and heartwarming.

Edit: seems like most other viewers don't share my view though Sweat so maybe avoid if you don't like the start

I still haven't properly *watched* either of those (as I'm back on a full-immersion C-dramas stint Sweat ), but judging from cast, synopsis and a few scenes I've glimpsed here and there, I tend to agree with you..."Oh My Boss" doesn't interest me in the least, whereas "Uchi no Musume..." seems like it's totally up my alley!
