REVIEWS:

Although this drama did well in it's opening and closing and received high ratings for those two episodes, this drama fluctuated up and down because people were turned off by the dark story of this drama. This has to be one of the weirdest Kimura Takuya dramas ever and perhaps the darkest. I don't know if I can recommend this one because it's pretty creepy and incestual. Definitely ends in an interesting manner but with all the incest between Kimura's character and his sister (which he doesn't know it's his sister), it's a bit f'ed up!

It's very good! Kimura, Sanma and Fukatsu are terrific in this drama! - Kyoko

A dark drama that I expected a tragic ending. A drama that I expected a lot because it was the pairing of Kimura Takuya and Akashiya Sanma. But also the best emotional drama actress you can get, Fukatsu Eri. A drama that you really need to watch until it builds up into the finale. Although you can't excuse the taboo situation between brother and sister, the main thing is they didn't know until it was too late. Despite some KimuTaku fans not liking his character to be a twisted individual, this drama shows that he can pretty much play anything and pull it off. Dark dramas are hard to recommend for everyone but if you are able to watch them, I recommend checking this drama out. - kndy
