I’m glad that this episode showcased more of our OTP’s married life. At least, the focus shifted back to romance, away from the exhausting corporate dramas and family feuds. Phew! It’s a breather if you ask me.
Anyways, there’s a major turning point in the end. It’s a little tragic, but I consider it a welcome development, plot-wise.
Just when everything’s going fine, the bitchy ex-girlfriend suddenly ruins the perfect date. Talking about first rate desperation. Bleh!
Gewd! Chiwa’s Dad is so argh! If he ain’t bald, I’ll really pull all his hair out. He’s literally driving me nuts!
Now, that Chiwa and Hokuto finally had an understanding of their relationship, I believe we will be seeing more angst and problems ahead. Tehehe!
A jealous Hokuto is a cute Hokuto. Yay!
Demn, all those smooches! Not just a kiss but a truckload of them. ♥♥♥
I still love where the show is taking us. New characters are slowly being introduced. If there’s one thing I want to highlight is how the live action Hokuto easily gives out compliments compared to his drawn counterpart. He sure knows when to appreciate Chiwa’s hard work which is seldom in the manga.
This episode is freakin awesome! I love how they put twists in some scenes, making it somewhat new but still holds on to the core plot. As expected, Dean’s character stands out. The chemistry kicks in and romance definitely sparks.
PS: Dean’s lopsided smile near the end of the episode makes my heart swoon like a teenager. Eeeet!
As promised, here’s the first recap for ‘Hapimari: Happy Marriage!?’ live-action adaptation. The first episode lays down the basic premise: a man and a woman, who are on the opposite ends of the socio-economic ladder, meets in the most unconventional way. Destiny and circumstances force them to get married and eventually fall in love for real.
Though some details were changed, I believe the drama delivered quite well for its pilot episode. Considering that the plot and characters are already “TOO” familiar for most audiences, the challenge now, is how to keep the dynamics afresh.
