Sunao ni Narenakute

Otherwise known as Hard to Say I Love You, SuNare tells the story of the blossoming friendship between five young people who were brought together by Twitter, and their journey to find honesty with each other and with themselves.

Here is the deal, when this drama was announced, I might have had a stroke screaming from joy, mostly because Hero Jaejoong, member of TVXQ, was announced as a cast member, then Eita and Juri Ueno were added, and I died in a pool of something. Eita and Juri are well-known actors in Japan. Their latest collaboration was the popular drama Last Friends, controversial because of the issues it brought up.

Sunao ni Narenakute is not as controversial. It is your regular melodrama with a bit more mess. I am not going to go on and on about the deficiencies, it does have some potential. It is worth a watch because of Eita and Juri alone, they have amazing chemistry. If you are a TVXQ lunatic, however, you will watch it just for Jaejoong. The drama is done with its first eight episodes and the plot is beginning to settle.

The beginning was a bit sloppy, so I am hoping for a great ending. I guess we shall see.
