My sassy girl, part JAPAN

So...having said that, let's get to work on this drama.
Well since the 201 airing of this, My Sassy girl has taken the world by storm, and 2008 proves to be the time when it is recognized, with an american movie remake in the works, and now a Japanese drama of it, officially called Ryokiteki Na Kanojo.
As you watch, you begin to realize how much this was influenced by that smash-hit movie, i caught at least....13 direct references to events from my sassy girl (check my drama review site for the list). While this doesn't quite live up to the My Sassy Girl fame, because it seems too much like a rip offa the movie, they did change a few things for originality, no longer are they college students, one is a college professor, and while not a movie script writer anymore, the girl is still a free-lance writer. Howwever, more or less the flow of the story is the same. A girl troubled over her past boyfriend meets a guy at a train station. This time, the guy is equally as sad. They grow to become quite fond of each other, and have some humorous events with each other. The humorous "wanna die" line makes a comeback here, along with other things i'm sure you'll be able to point out if you had seen the original korean movie.
Overall, the music was pretty good, i love Tanaka Rena so i liked the cast, the plot was so-so, not exactly original, but came from a very good plot. Feel good ending, yet still has humor even till the end, romantics will like it i think, and at least give it a look if you've seen the original movie
