Beautiful Life Screen Caps
That’s how my favorite Japanese romance drama begins. Along with Kimura and Tokiwa are Watabe Atsuro (First Love, Byakuyakou) as Machida Masao,Kyoko's brother and Ikeuchi Hiroyuki (Bambino!, Ganbatte Ikimasshoi) as Okabe Takumi, Shuji's friend and an assistant hairstylist at the salon where Shuji works as is Hara Chiaki (Lion Sensei) who plays Ozawa Mayumi another hair stylist and former girlfriend. Koyuki (Kimi wa Petto, Laundry) plays another ex-girlfriend. The screenplay was written by Kitagawa Eriko (Over Time, Long Vacation, Orange Days). She’s won the best screenwriter award 5 times, including this drama. If you don’t hate love stories I’m sure you’ll like this. As I’ve said many times it’s not my favorite genre but this is an exceptional story and the two leads have a great chemistry with each other.
