J-Drama: Innocent Love

If u are looking for an all new interesting Japanese drama, I think Innocent Love will be the all time season favorite.

I had just finished the first 2 episode and I am absolutely GLUED now. The plot deepens....

The script is much better written with some mystery to the supposed "crime" of the brother, as well as to the mystery of the waking comatose girlfriend.... very very interesting. So is the reporter really there to help and investigate the truth, or does he have ulterior motive. Why did the brother first admit and confess to killing his parents during the police statement and only to turn around saying he is innocent of all crimes....what deep dark secret is he harboring... why was he so agitated by his sister's letter....WOW! Good start for the first 2 episodes man.

This drama series though seemingly reminds one of "Last Friends" with the music intro due to the video style, yet the plot is vastly different though the shooting remains the same. Like sudden blank out of all sound and a paused reaction to maximise and intensify the mystery effect before shooting the next scene. Very very similar way of taking angles and adding symbolic meaning to an object "like the pendant cross vs the charred wood cross of the burnt house"

So.... suck in your breathe and gather your popcorns every Monday week for this new drama. The guy actors though I have no idea who they are, are reasonable good looking enough to sustain the show... I never quite like the actress who is acting as the jealous woman Mizuki. For a Japanese actress, I think she is quite ugly....and she talks like her nasal is congested or something.

I am betting u will be hooked as the story unfolds judging by the first 2 episode. Moral of the post, one still need a good script to garner audience attention....

Plot summary (from drama wiki)

An arson took it all away from Akiyama Kanon seven years ago. Her parents died in that fire, her brother was arrested as the prime suspect and her carefree life disappeared from that instant. She was shunned by the town as the sister of a murderer, yet she believes in her brother's innocence and often pays him visits with words of encouragement. As life gets harder when nobody is willing to give her a job, Kanon decides to try her luck in the city and there she meets the man of her destiny...
