Storyline

Sunao ni Narenakute is a story about the blossoming friendship of five young people who were brought together by Twitter, and their journey to finding honesty with each other and with themselves. Nakajima looks up to his father, who was a war photographer, but can only get a job as an assistant for gravure magazines. Mizuno is a provisional high school teacher currently on probation. Nishimura is Mizuno's best friend, whose boyfriend has been avoiding her since she discovered she was pregnant. Ichihara works at a magazine where he is being blackmailed into sexual favours by his chief editor. Park, on Twitter, takes on the persona of a doctor, when he is actually working at a company that sells medical equipment to disinterested doctors, and at the same time, trying to take care of his younger sister.

Very intense show
14 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

Interesting show-I think the writer(s)and actors wanted a project that was NOT about fluff and fashion and teen crushes,and succeeded in that. Basically 5 young adults meet through twitter,and their individual stories and how they become friends is the storyline here. The group are known by their nicknames:"Haru"(Ueno Juri)is a substitute high school teacher. "Peach" (Megumi Seki)is a shop girl."Linda" (Tetsuji Tamayama)works for a magazine."Nakaji" (Eita)is an aspiring photographer."Doctor"(Hero) is a medical salesman.These people all feel alone,and begin to help and care for each other as the series progresses.Set in modern day Japan,the outdoor location scenes and interior sets are wonderful. If I had any criticism it would be an overuse of the score.(something I am finding endemic to Asian drama's) This isn't a show you will find outtakes or a gag reel for,I sense these are real actors working their profession-and very well. Thank you for reading this.
