Konna koi no hanashi [こんな恋のはなし] One of the best Japanese show I ever seen [Rating: 9/10] Singapore
Date: 9 May 2000
Summary: One of the best Japanese show I ever seen
The english name of the show is Rich Man Poor Man. The story is about a ruthless businessman whose motive is only to make money when he find out he has only half a year to live. Through fate, he bump into a man who is a total oppsite of him, a penniless man whose life is to gain happiness through helping people even he has no money. Slowly, the businessman changes his attiude towards life. The lead role Shuichiro Harashima is marvelessly played by Hiroyuki Sanada. His looks and acting skill make the character comes alive. He is cold yet not proud, 100% meeting the character's requirement. I will strongly recommend this show to everybody. For those who do not understand Japanese, try getting those with sub-titles.
Konna koi no hanashi [こんな恋のはなし] one of the best tv drama I have ever watched [Rating: 9/10] singapore
Date: 1 April 2001
Summary: one of the best tv drama I have ever watched
This is a drama worth watching. The story line was good, the actors (especially Sanada Hiroyuki and Tamaki Koji) really put in a marvelous performance. I would say the way the whole show was directed from start to end really glued the viewers to the tv screen, and the music too really is effective in setting the moods, funny, in suspence, hearbreaking and...romantic... I especially like the main track "Mr. lonely" (sang and composed by Tamaki koji).
After watching this show, I was so fasinated by both the main actors in this show that I start to search for more information on this two actors...new series, movies,fan page etc etc. Now I am a great fan of both of them. "Mr. lonely" too sets me off to be a music fan of Tamaki Koji!
Konna koi no hanashi [こんな恋のはなし] well done!!! [Rating: 9/10] Sanada's well known drama work was in 1997 with Fujisankei's -Konna koi no hanashi, which was the intellectual and spiritual gem of the year. It's more cerebral than your average trendy Fuji offering, but also less cliche. It has some great comments on life and living. The message is propelled by the real-life friendship between Sanada and Tamaki Koji, who plays draws out the humanity in Sanada's character. by

Reviewer: TVbuff from Australia
I personally think this is a great drama. Although the story is a bit slow at times but I really love the acting of all the characters. The title song "Mr Lonely" really brings out the mood of this drama. Very well made overall.

Shiroi kage [白い影] review [Rating: 1/10] i think this drama is made so poorly. there was one drama Heaven's coin(Hinko no kinka), that one is a excellent one with hospital setting. i could not image a person with terminal illness could have such energy to persuit his love one. that is so funny. there is another drama - Konna koi no hanashi (A story of love) which is a bast drama to record a very ill man who in his last days living with such dignity and not to hurt the one he loves. i think to love a person is consider for them ( not to hurt them)
Tokyo Love Story [東京ラブストーリー] Real life [Rating: 9/10] This is a great drama i have ever seen.although Rika gave her whole heart to love Kanji, and she always had the sweet spirit to this man. but Kanji's first love is his high school sweet heart not Rika. so at the end he turn out to break up with Rika. i did not know why Kanji was so apathetic and so cold to a woman so in love with him and help him all the times(when he is in need). may be the fact of life is like this,
the fact of life is socratic irony, the sweet and lovely Rika did not have good luck to have her love one with her, her love for Kanju is so strongly keep in the depth of her heart, for she loved him with so hard and faithful way.
