Lost potential

Story:
Kurosagi is reminiscent of the Hollywood movie 'Catch me if you can', however, the drama's promising start ends in disappointment.

This drama could've been fantastic, but with each episode I found myself forwarding more and more. I also began to be more interested in the love story than the swindling parts. The schemes unfortunately are quite repetitive and boring after the first 5 episodes.

Oh well, at least the romantic aspect was going to save the drama. Right? Wrong.

Acting:
Yamapi's sarcastic approach is great for this role, however, I find that he tends to bring this approach to all his characters. Notice him always using the 'chewing the cheek' approach?

Horikita was amazing as the love interest, but too bad the drama wasn't written well in final episodes...

Also, the police officer actor was really annoying.

Music:
Background music was weird sometimes, but nothing much to comment about.

Overall:
The drama had potential, which went down the drain. Watch to kill time.

PS - Yoshida's best friend is so evil. Can't believe them in the end! "With friends like this, who needs enemies." --> i think this quote applies here.
