I cant wait for this to air. As far as I know, there is no air date set yet. But watch this space for updates. For those who do not know of this drama, I would advice you to read the manga. I love the manga to bits, the anime on the other hand, whilst it was faithful to the manga, the way it ended and the lack of an announced continuation makes me want to cry and scream in frustration because it did add value to watching the anime as oppose to just reading the manga. (I will post a short review on the anime soon).

The filming for the drama has ended on June 26th 2011 (Source: allkpop). So hopefully that this means that the show’s release date will be announced soon. =)

Drama airs on 18th December 2011. (A few months wait. T_T Decemeber is too far away dammit!)

  1. Ooh Forgot about this for a while.. I wonder if they will actually finish the story unlike the anime..


    • I have no clue, I am hoping that they do since the trailers seem to divert from the manga plot.

      This series also has the opportunity to have an ending. Besides, Ren apparently gets a kiss scene with Kyoko in this series. 😉 So maybe we will get to see some conclusion from that. Can’t wait for it to be out though! =D
