I don’t usually make these sort of posts, in fact I never do them but let’s venture out a little shall we?
As you make be aware (or not) I loved Rich Man, Poor Woman as well as its special Rich Man Poor Woman In New York. Aside from the wonderful plot and sizzling chemistry between the OTP, I also fell in love with the OST “Hikari e” sung by miwa. She reprised her voice once again for RMPW SP singing “Delight”. I fell in love with both songs as they were both really catchy and so upbeat. It really worked for the dorama neatly tying it all together. Continue reading
Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllllll! Everyone squeal with me! I am so glad that there is a Rich Man, Poor Woman Special! It just brings back all the memories! The official special was aired on 01/04/2013 and one of the first things that I did this morning was frantically search for this special. The special is supposed to be two and a half hours long but I’m not sure with the way that they are doing it as I only found the first 12 minutes of the special.
Actually, the first 12 minutes that I saw wasn’t the special but episode 0. Yeahh, I know, weird? That got me really confused because I thought it was the special! Oh well, but it was a nice 12 minutes spent. It focused on the backbone towards Toru and Kosuke’s friendship which nice to know since it wasn’t developed in the drama. I loved watching how their close friendship came to be so!
The special itself filled the gap from the drama when Toru confessed his feelings to Makoto before she left for Brazil (which doesn’t exactly make sense when the special is set in New York…) and from when she returned about a year later. I found that it was a nice touch to know how their relationship developed because the relationship development between the OTP is vital to the drama. It was adorable to see the changes that they made to each other and how they strengthened their relationship in this special. Also, could it be possible that Oguri Shun and Ishihara Satomi have even more chemistry here in the special than they did in the drama? I think so!
This special just makes me desire for a second season! It also makes me want to re-watch the first season, ahahahahas! I am hoping for a second season, and I think there might be a glimmer of hope with the ending stating “The End …is the next beginning”. This just ups the ante for a second season! Continue reading
Amazing! Stunningly, remarkably, overwhelming amazing. I have never encountered a drama much like this one that could have well blew me off my seat while I sat through and watched each and every ep not wanting it to end. I only got into the bandwagon nine eps into the drama and boy am I glad that I did get on but let me tell you, the last two weeks were agony for me having to wait for the subs to come out. To all those out there who have not seen this, seriously get on board now! Continue reading
