Things seem to be going well for the couple until Kyoko's illness starts growing more severe. Will she recover, or will this young romance end in tragedy?

Good Story With Touching Ending
18 June 2004 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

At first I saw this drama I surprised, how can a beautiful Takako Tokiwa with beautiful hair become bad like that? But thank Goodness it just for a little while. The story continue become make sense and tells deep inside for people's feeling. The story teach us to be a good person for them who is sick and get much attention to them, without hurt their feelings.

Good acting from Takako Tokiwa, she always played good for her drama and her film. But not Takuya Kimura, he acting same like his rule in Long Vacation. I disappointed with his acting, even I admitted he played well and make the audience touching with his rule in this drama.

The music soundtrack are singing good.
