Hiroyuki Sanada is the cold-hearted businessman Harashima, whose only goal in life is to work hard and make money. His plans for the future are cut short when he discovers he'll be dead within six months. By strange twist of fate, he bumps into Nanako Matsushima who plays Kaori, a poor yet loving girl who lives and works in Harashima's world and he falls head-over-heels in love with her. With the help of Koji Tamaki (The lively and cheerful Konosuke), Harashima begins to realize what the values of friendship, loyalty and love- but will be able to reverse the fate of Kaori and Konosuke's doomed homes before his fate catches up with him?

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.
