Good Enough
28 August 2019 | by pennyelenabooksSee all my reviews

Although you know where the story is heading, Kimi no hana, or snow flower, had a nice and cute story to present.

What I like and appreciated about this drama was the ending. It was somehow happy and they gave the whole tragic illness a better and more optemistic spin.

The love story was really cute and warm as well, even though it started a bit awkwardly. The two actors had great chemistry and their romance was somehow realistic and sweet. The performances were really good as well.

So, seven out of ten.
