Storyline

Katagiri Teppei (Kimura Takuya) is a promising creative agent, but whose attitude gets him transferred to the sales department. He has to learn to adapt to the new working environment, which includes cutting his precious locks of hair to create a neater and more appropriate image. Helping him along the way is Uesugi Riko (Matsu Takako), whom he tried to pick up along the street earlier but was tricked by her instead. Riko does not have a good impression of him at first, but falls for him gradually. However, Teppei runs into his ex-girlfriend Mizuhara Sanae (Junna Risa) who is now the girlfriend of his brother Soichiro (Uchino Masaaki). Consoling him is Riko, whom Teppei likes gradually. Just when Teppei and Riko start dating, Sanae realises that she still likes Teppei. Written by ahloy-419-149174

Transformations
23 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

Kimura undergoes an interesting transformation in this popular tv drama. Mediocrity is the thing that he hates the most, and in fact so proud is he of his career and lifestyle - a designer and a playboy. He looks egocentric but in fact no value he has of his own. Change happens when he is moved from design department to sales department - the most mediocre job that he thinks. A transformation begins, and so does a journey that leads him to the deep down of himself. This tv drama is interwoven with four interrelated love stories, and a comparison between Kimura and his brother also gives some significant insights about the transformation. The structure is concise although a bit complicated. The plot is entertaining and sometimes quite touching. The transformations that other characters undergo are also interesting. Other than Long Vacation and Hero, it's another excellent work of Kimura. See it and you won't be sorry.
