Shiroi Haru 白い春– Release April 09

Kumo Japan Drama sneak!!

Japan Drama Story:
Sakura Haruo (Abe Hiroshi) 阿部寛 was just release from 9 years of prison. He was involved in Japan yakuza and sentence to prison because he killed a man. Before he was thrown in prison, he was actually thinking of quitting Yakuza. As his girl friend Takamura Mariko (Konno Mahiru) 紺野まひるneeds the money for her illness, he decided to make a final deal with the yakuza to earn the money. He managed to complete the deal by killing a man but he was then caught by the police. Knowing that he will be in prison for a long time, he broke up with Mariko. Thinking that she is better off without him and she should find a better man now that she has the money to seek medical attention. After 9 years of prison Sakura Haruo (Abe Hiroshi) 阿部寛 is free again. He thought that Mariko is now well and alive, perhaps might already married and have kids. Turns out that she died after few years he was prison. He was furious and decided to find the man Mariko with right after he was prison. He managed to find out that the man Murakami Yasushi (Endo Kenichi) 遠藤憲一owns a small bakery shop and seems to marry another girl. As he tries to approach Murakami Yasushi for answers, he met a young little girl that seems to like him very much. The young girl name Murakami Sachi (Ohashi Nozomi ) 大橋のぞみseems to get along pretty well with Sakura Haruo (Abe Hiroshi) 阿部寛.

Feelings and comments:
Honestly, I never did interested in watching this drama at the beginning. The only reason that I took a peek is because of Abe Hiroshi (阿部寛) and lucky that I did. The drama turns out great. The story is simple or shall I say it’s the same kind of story that is told again and again in movies and dramas. The thing that makes this drama attractive is that the script is written in such a way that you can feel the love of a man that willing to sacrifice anything for it. The love of a man towards his 2 precious women in his life is all you can feel in this drama.
One particular thing that bugs me always is those that are love by did not know or realize the sacrifices that their loves one make. It is consider fortunate to be able to find someone that loves you very much. I suppose it’s difficult to find these kinds of people nowadays as they are almost extinct. The world can be a better place if lot more people sacrifice for love.
Abe Hiroshi (阿部寛) really is good in what he does. His appearance in this drama makes every single moment special. There isn’t a moment that you’ll feel bored in this drama. You might find some similarities in another drama call “kekkon Dekinai Otoko” where Abe Hiroshi (阿部寛) is the lead actor.

Things that caught my eyes:
Getting the road sign and the statue in front of the bakery shop definitely is a way to disturb their business. I was hoping to see how the big post box gets in front of the shop, but then it never did happen.

Japan Drama Rating:
Worth watching. The story is not new as you might figure out the whole story just by watching the first episode. Still I just can’t stop watching the drama till the end. The script is well written and the drama has one of the best actors - Abe Hiroshi (阿部寛) in Japan.
