Yamapi's dramas kinda went downhill after Buzzer Beat. Ishihara Satomi who I am also a fan of is also starring in this drama.I recently watched Kinkyori Renai and noticed how much Pi aged. It was mainly about a forbidden love between a teacher and high school student. Interesting fact: Jnetizens are suspecting that Yamapi will become infatuated with Satomi irl.It does draw some elements from shoujo manga-esque dramas but otherwise doesn’t stray far from convention.Many of the plot points in the show will seem very familiar to those who’ve seen at least a romance drama or two.In this drama, I think Oguri Shun did portray a little bit of characteristic of Domyouji in Rich Man, Poor Woman.For example, their rich man status, low EQ and 'sadistic behavior'.
The title of the show sums up its concept quite clearly.

Oguri Shun as Hanazawa Rui Oguri Shun had grown and mature into a credible actor throughout these years.
He had built a good profile in his acting career; however I only managed to catch his other drama -Tokyo Dogs.
