Around 40アラウンド40 – Release April 08

Kumo Japan Drama sneak!!

Japan Drama Story:
Ogata Satoko (Amami Yuki) 天海祐希, Morimura Nao (Otsuka Nene) 大塚寧々 and Takeuchi Mizue (Matsushita Yuki) 松下由樹 are good friends. They always hang out together having lunch or dinner at Ohashi Sadao (Tsutsui Michitaka) 筒井道隆’s restaurant. Ogata Satoko, Morimura Nao and Takeuchi Mizue are all around age of 40. 2 of them are still single and 1 already married for years. 3 of them are perusing different kind of lifestyle but with same goal in mind. That is to be able to live happily ever after. Is marriage necessary for living happily?

Feelings and comments:
“Getting married or not” that is the question that most woman always talk about. Especially when age are catching up and still remain singles, this sort of question often pops up during conversation. No matter which way we choose, it doesn’t matter as long as we’re happy. “Happily ever after “or not, that’s for us to decide. There are also couples that did not sign the marriage paper but still able to have a happy life together. Marriage doesn’t guarantee a happy life but it does give you certain security.

The drama shows us 3 different stages from single, getting married and married for years. All of them have only 1 goal in mind. That is to be happy in their life. One thing for sure, no matter which path we choose there will be problems and difficulties. All we need to do is try to deal with it and keep on moving.

Things that caught my eyes:
There is a quote shown on TV whenever Ogata Satoko (Amami Yuki) 天海祐希 walk pass the corridor in the hospital. A different quote every time but it makes us think about a lot of things.

It sure is nice to have a restaurant like that where friends can hang out. Especially the owner of the restaurant is one of our buddies.

Japan Drama Rating:
Interesting to watch. It’s a story about 3 women in different lifestyle around the age of 40.
