[RECAP] Kekkon Shinai Ep 5
This is not exactly as detailed as somnia's recap but more like my own review of this week's ep. I think I'm liking this drama more and more now. This week's ep seems to focus a lot on Kudo and Chiharu. Chiharu starts to develop feeling for Kudo. The topic of this week seems to be falling in love at 30's. Mariko, Chiharu's colleague, told her at 30's you have to look for the "marriageable" love which means if the guy doesn't meet the qualification then you shouldn't bother dating him because women at the age of 30's should date guys who are potential marriage candidates. I guess that's the reality. There are some truth in what she said. This drama seems to be really popular with ladies in early 30's. A lot of people have been sending messages to the broadcasting station, mostly women, saying the drama really touched them. Kudo and the part-timer girl went to Haruko's place and all 4 of them had lunch. Kudo and Chiharu look just like a couple. I definitely love the chemistry between them. Chiharu went to the flower shop and met Kouno. She sensed something going on between Kouno and Kudo. The professor seems to have a crush on Haruko. I think he's a bit too old for her? He's like over 55 and she's 44, maybe not a bad combination? It's funny that he got interrupted by the part-timer girl who is his student. But Haruko is still hung up on her boss. Haruko and Chiharu went to a garden restaurant because she designed the place and met her boss who went with his family! Haruko noticed them but the boss didn't. His wife seemed to know what's going on. Women's intuition is scary. Haruko left leaving Chiharu and the wife chased after her. She didn't say anything mean but her words have hidden meaning. Looks like she knows they had an affair. Chiharu got drunk and went to the park. She saw Kudo sitting at their usual bench sulking. Kudo told her about the painting he left at Sawai (the stuck-up gallery owner) and Chiharu said let's go get it back. They went to get back the painting and Kudo thanked her for insisting on getting it back. They are gonna be my main OTP for this drama! Looks like he starts to fall for her as well The next morning, Chiharu baked some desserts and went to visit her mother in the hospital. I really like their conversation. Chiharu asked her mom what she was doing when she was 35 and she said she was raising Chiharu who was in elementary school. Chiharu's mom said she kinda envied of Chiharu who is free to explore many possibilities in life and has nothing to stop her from doing so. Chiharu went to give Kudo some desserts as well and saw him sleeping. Sleeping Prince! She got curious about the painting and opened it. It was a portrait of Kouno that he drew in 2002! Now I wonder if the reason Kudo distanced himself from Kouno is because he isn't successful as she is? Next ep Kouno invites Kudo to go somewhere with her.

Asahina laughed like a mad man and finally admitted that he was behind Hyuga's downfall. Asahina made fun of Hyuga for not noticing anything until now. Asahina proclaimed proudly, "It was ME who brought you to this state." Makoto saw the news while on her way to the final interview for her new job but hesitated while thinking about Hyuga. But she decided to go for the interview after all. Yamagami explained to Hyuga the value of his share which he could take with him when he leaves the company. Hyuga questioned Yamagami when was it that Asahina turned against him. Yamagami said he doesn't know since he cant even read what Asahina is thinking. Yamagami told Hyuga Asahina now has the largest share in the company and that Hyuga only has Personal File project left in his name. Hyuga told Yamagami he'd never give up on personal file. Hyuga tried to access his Personal File project but access is denied! All the files are being deleted in from of him. Hyuga is at lost about what to do and yanked all the plugs to his PC out in frustration. Everyone in the company can sense what's going on but acts like nothing happened. Hyuga went to get coffee and asks "What's going on?" Yasuoka said, "What do you mean what's wrong? You suddenly declared you're gonna quit the company." Hyuga told them he's gonna start a new company with the new Personal File project. Everyone is surprised/excited but Asahina appeared, "How about that? That's just like Hyuga Tohru." The employees of course have no idea that Asahina turned evil. Asahina declared he'll reform the company. "The future is for us to create and you guys can definitely make it happen." The employees get motivated by him and no one pays attention to Hyuga who is sitting in a corner :( . Makoto saw all of this. What will she do?? >__< Opening theme. I've been putting in on replay on my iphone ^o^ Hyuga is packing up his stuff and Makoto comes in. She offers to help him pack up but he just tell her to "keep your hands off" to which she apologizes. Hmm I wish Hyuga were a bit more gentle to her. He asks about her new company and she cheerfully told him it went well. Hyuga, "Then? (what do you intend to do)" Makoto told him she plans to accept their offer. Hyuga indifferently said, "Good for you" but he's obviously disappointed. Makoto just left. The employees are talking about how great it is that Asahina is now the new president and how inhumane Hyuga's reign was. Some of the girls even said Asahina is cool and reliable. Our favorite trio sneaked away to discuss what to do. They wanna follow Hyuga then suddenly Hyuga appeared with a big bright smile and told them to come with him (to make a new company). Then he grabbed Makoto who walked by and headlocked her saying she'll come to! Love that scene! Makoto says she doesn't know about that and Hyuga blocked her mouth with his hand lol. Makoto is struggling (this is so cute and funny). The trio is puzzled. So Hyuga just pretended like he didn't care earlier. How cute~ Hyuga told them with the sweetest smile ever, "You guys are indispensable to Personal File project. I need you." With just those words, the trio is totally mesmerized and voluntarily agrees to come with him. Yasuoka hesitates but declares that if Hyuga can say his name then he'll follow him. Hyuga is taken back a bit after hearing this. Here comes the real challenge! Hyuga laughs awkwardly. He should smiles more often. This ep is filled with his cute smiles!! The trio looks at him with eyes full of expectation. Hyuga confidently said, "You are…Yamaoka-kun!!!" Everyone failed to their despair haha. Yasuoka: Ahh this is too bad. Guess I can't go now… Hyuga: Sorry… Yasuoka: I'm just kidding! I'm definitely following you! What are you saying? I'm ok with Yamaoka! (love this guy!) Yasuoka suggested they do a farewell party for Hyuga and maybe use that to pull along some more people hehe. Makoto came to ask Yoko to prepare Hyuga's farewell party. Yoko: So tomorrow is you last day? Makoto: Yes…. *sad face* Yoko *laughs*: You're so easy to read. Are you lonely? Makoto: Oh no! Back to the company, Yasuoka tries to recruit people to follow but got rejected by one of the cute girls. Hyuga left the office. Asahina waited for him at the entrance. Hyuga scanned his ID and walked out but Asahina asked him to give the ID back. He really wants Hyuga to cut all ties with NI!!! Hyuga tossed it to him without saying anything. Asahina, with a serious look on his face, "Goodbye" Yoko discussed with her rival chef about Hyuga's farewell party tomorrow. He sounded a bit jealous there. Makoto is at a soccer filed eating her dinner and waiting for her friend. She talks to her friend about Hyuga asking "If one day your own company is taken away from you and your position is given to someone else, it must be really painful right?" Makoto remembers Hyuga's face and Asahina's look at that time. Next day, everyone is preparing for the party. Yasuoka told Yamagami he doesn't have anything to do/and can't do anything if Hyuga is not here. Yamagami mumbles, "A company without Hyuga huh?" Makoto come to Asahina office since today is her last day. He said she did well and apologized for the change in company and blah blah. Makoto asked if he has something on his mind which surprised him a little. Makoto obviously doesn't know what's going on yet. Makoto: You two will continue to create amazing things right? Now it's just a new beginning right? Asahina *all of the sudden*: Won't you work here? Makoto is surprised Asahina: Ah..no…I was thinking about you working here before. You don't have to answer it now. Take your time and think about it Now he even tries to take away Hyuga's woman!??!! What is he thinking?!!? Hyuga came to NI. The security guard looked up his name and surprised to see he is THE Hyuga. Hyuga commented on how it's the first time they actually talked. Security guard handed him visitor ID asked, "Why (did you leave)…?" Hyuga just smiled and didn't say anything. Makoto is at the party but depressed because her prince hasn't arrived yet. Finally, prince Hyuga arrived in his casual getup (why do I suddenly think of Hana Yori Dango?). Yasuoka, his loyal assistant, announced that Hyuga has arrived. They started playing a video titled the history of NI that starts back in 2004. The music makes me wanna cry already!!! The video is of the photos back when NI first started. Everyone said how young Hyuga looked back then. Btw, Asahina hasn't arrived which is not surprising to me. Oh dear, then Opening theme in English remix started. Hyuga is red with tears. Yoko handed him a glass of orange. She felt guilty for what her brother did. Someone asked where Asahina is and wonders why he's not here. Yoko handed Makoto a glass of tea and congratulated on the completion of her internship. Makoto told Yoko she really admired those two (Asahina and Hyuga) and that's why it will be ok. Yoko didn't say anything and just left. The video ended. Hyuga is about to do a speech. He started, "8 years ago, I was like this (pointed to the video screen with him and Asahina standing in front of NI wall…." So basically he said he had a good time at the company but had to leave. But he'll definitely have Personal File project kick off and even though he doesn't know for sure what will happen but he's looking forward to it. Then about NI, of course he wasn't the only one who built it up but there's also Yamagami (he pointed to him). And…he wanted to say Asahina but his lips couldn't speak the word (his acting is superb!). So he decided to say and many others. He was on the verge of crying and you can see it because his eyes are so red. He started, "I…" with his head down, he struggled to speak Asahina's name but didn't reveal the awful deeds Asahina did. So in the end he just thanked Asahina. Only Yoko knows about the truth. When the trio was about to declare that they're gonna follow Hyuga then the press conference with Asahina in came on. Everyone is watching the TV when Asahina announced a joint project with JI tech which is Personal File!!! A reporter asked isn't that project Hyuga's? OMG, you wouldn't believe what Asahina said: "Hyuga has nothing to do with Next Innovation and Personal File project." And he said this while looking straight at the camera as if he's saying it to Hyuga. Hyuga is shocked. The trio wondered what they can do now that the Personal File has been taken away from them. Then someone noticed Asahina walked in with a bouquet and evil smile on his face. Hyuga glared at him. Asahina came and spilled hypocrite words like thanks for everything. It was with you that we could do the things we did and so on. Then he handed him the bouquet and patted him on the shoulder. Hyuga took the flower and told others "Let's go" But the hesitated! And said sorry! Hyuga laughed and yelled "Yasuoka!!" Ehh did he betray Hyuga???? Yasuoka started crying and apologized saying he'll stay at NI! Hyuga is shocked. Asahina is surprised (but looks like he pretends to be) and said what is this about? Tohru Hyuga you're sneaky. He came close to Hyuga and whispered, " Without me there's nothing you can do." Hyuga went crazy and shouted at Asahina. He said the office design, the chair and everything is what Hyuga himself chose. Who do you think made this place? He started shouting at the employees as well. "I'm the one who created Next Innovation!!" Asahina: It's enough already. This is not like Hyuga Tohru Makoto is filled with tears. Hyuga looks at Makoto then at the screen. He took the projector and threw at NI wall which made mark on the part Asahina wrote "If it's you…(you can do it)" It's like the end of the world for Hyuga. He dragged himself out of the office. Asahina started instructing people to clean up the mess. He came to Yoko and asked to warm up the food. Yoko slapped him. Asahina didn't react much and just said," I'm counting on you" like nothing happened. Yoko: "I'll do it. Because it's my job." Asahina gave her a creepy smile Makoto chased Hyuga to the elevator, "I'll go with you!" Hyuga yelled, "Don't come here!" Hyuga: I wonder why….I don't want you to see me like this right now. He pressed the close button. Makoto came to it and quickly pressed the button for next elevator. She was about to run down the stairs then Asahina appeared, "It's the 25th floor. It's impossible if you take the stairs." Makoto: Why? Why did you destroy something so precious to yourself? Asahina: Huh? Makoto: You treasure Hyuga-san more than anyone else, don't you? The elevator opens. Makoto walks toward it. Asahina: If you take that elevator then what? Didn't he tell you to not come near him? Makoto: I don't know. Asahina grabs Makoto's arm, "Don't go." She gently pushes his hand off. Makoto: I'm thankful for your offer but I'll have to decline it. Asahina: Didn't I tell you you didn't have to reply right away? Makoto: I'm sorry but I already decided on my feelings. (somnia: Kyaa!! You go girl!!!) I like Hyuga-san. Thank you for everything. She said confidently and bowed to Asahina. He's about to stop her but the door closes on him. Hah, served him right. Makoto ran with all her might outside and just in time to see Hyuga about to leave on his bike. He didn't hear her calling out for him "Wait!" She jumped out in front of his bike! Love makes people go crazy!!! Hyuga is surprised, "What the hell are you trying to do??!" Makoto: I want to go with you! I definitely won't regret it! I already rejected the offers, the pharmaceutical company, and Asahina-san's. I declined all of them! Hahaha (Ok that's her laughing not me lol) Makoto: You don't want to be seen by me? Suit yourself. I want to go with Hyuga Tohru! Awsome scene!!! And miwa's song plays at the exact moment too, " I want to believe~~" Hyuga annoyingly (but we all know he's doing the happy dance inside) said, "Get on!" Makoto: Yes, sir! Hyuga and Makoto stopped in front of NI building. Then Makoto suddenly say, "Do you wanna take a picture?" Hyuga, "Huh?!" Makoto: "The video of NI history was great, so let's take a picture" Makoto: Today is not the end of anything. It's the day of a new beginning. So let's take a picture to commemorate this. And I will be in this. Fufufufu (aww so cute!!) Hyuga: Don't fufufu me Makoto helped him take of his helmet and he helped with hers. They took a picture. Hyuga looked at NI building. Hyuga: This was my everything. Makoto: You're right *smiling* Hyuga grabbed Makoto's arms and made sure they're wrapped around his waist. (me: *squealing*!!!). Hyuga: Let's go. Makoto: Alright! Makoto and Hyuga are beaming with happiness. Makoto hugged Hyuga tightly with a bright smile. They drove away as the sun is setting. End of ep 8
Kekkon Shinai Ep 6 Recap
Ongoing recap :) Kudo found out from Haruko that Chiharu came by and left without saying anything. Chiharu talked about marriage with her coworker again. Looks like the topic for this ep is about what it means to have and raise children. Chiharu's friend asked her to babysit her son for one day. Chiharu is worried if Haruko will be ok with kids. Chiharu asked her sister if the kid can stay at their house but the sister didn't like the idea. Haruko agreed to let the kid stay for a year. It's funny that she wanted to treat the 5 year-old kid to coffee and take him around on her motorcycle LOL. Haruko wanted to invite Kudo over to help out but Chiharu didn't want him to come. Haruko sensed things didn't work out for those two. Kudo remembered his talk with Kouno. Kouno said she believes in him and asked him to go abroad with her. Chiharu bought some toys for the kids. 2 basket full of toys!! She looks like she'll be a good mom. The kid came but he looked so down. I wonder where they found such a cute kid. He looks mixed. The professor came to the flower shop to see Haruko again. To his disappointment, his student interrupted again. Haruko let the girl to take care of it. Chiharu took the boy to the park but she was so out of energy. I think Kudo will appear soon out of nowhere haha. Chiharu calls Haruko asking her to come back as soon as she finishes work. Kudo showed up at the door saying Haruko asked him for help. Kudo brought a train as present for the kid. Looks like Kudo still hasn't realized that Chiharu saw the painting. Kudo and the kid started playing while Chiharu makes dinner. They look like a perfect family! The kid suddenly asks if the two of them are going out which make them both choke haha!! Chiharu denies it profusely while Kudo just smiles. The kid got something into his nose and the two of them got flustered and ran around like young parents. When they went to the hospital, the doctor and nurse mistook them as the kid's parents. They really look great together >__<. Hope they'll end up together in the end. Kudo helped washing the dishes. Perfect husband! Chiharu said Haruko is totally different when it comes to kids and she's super sweet to them. Chiharu took the boy back to her parents' house. It looks like the reason the sister's husband has been coming back late because of work not because he has an affair. The professor came to the flower shop again but got interrupted once again. Poor him haha. Chiharu's friend came to pick the kid up. Chiharu felt lonely saying goodbye to the kid. She went to the park and saw Kudo drinking by himself. They sat down and talked. Chiharu asked him Kudo ever thought about having kids. They didn't talk much and just enjoyed drinking together. Chiharu went home and saw the toys. She's reminded of the boy again. Chiharu told Haruko she wanted to have kids after all. But if she keeps going like this maybe life will be over. Haruko says well that's life. Haruko told Chiharu she has a kid!?!?! Chiharu got a call from her friend who said her son wanted to hear Chiharu's voice before going to sleep. Aww I would cry if I were her :(( Kouno showed up giving Kudo airplane ticket to Paris and said she's serious, asking him to come with her. Kudo is in deep thought starring at the airplane. Ep 7 Preview Kouno came to see Chiharu and told her she wanted to go to Paris with Kudo. Chiharu told Kudo to go to Paris. What sorta typical situation is this? Haruko's old boss said he decided to divorce his wife. Hmm I don't think Haruko will get back together with him. Anyone knows how long this drama is?
Kimura Takuya to live in poverty for new Monday drama ‘PRICELESS’
On August 14th, it was announced that SMAP’s Kimura Takuya will be starring in Fuji TV’s new “Getsu 9″ drama for the upcoming fall season. The drama with the tentative title ‘PRICELESS‘ revolves around a salary man who falls into a life of destitution after being fired from his company. Although it will already be Kimura’s ninth starring role in a “Getsu 9″ drama, it will be the first time for him to play a character living in poverty. At first everything seems to go well for the protagonist – living a satisfying life as a bachelor and working at the middle management of a major company. He’s also on good terms with his co-workers, but one day he gets wrapped up in an intrigue and ends up getting fired for something he hasn’t done. Before he even realized, he had become a penniless man without a phone and no place to stay. By chance he happens to get acquainted to other poor children at a park and gradually begins to realize that there are many important “priceless” things in life that you can’t buy with money. ‘PRICELESS’ is based on an original script by Furuya Kazunao (‘Ninkyo Helper’, ‘37-sai de Ishani Natta Boku’). It’s said to be a humorous drama with a lovable and cheerful protagonist who never loses his positive attitude despite those tragic turns. His positive attitude even causes the change of his unreliable boss – played by Nakai Kiichi – and one of his female colleagues, an introverted accountant played by Karina. Just before the start of the filming, Kimura stated, “Our Japanese athletes at the London 2012 Olympics showed us impressive and PRICELESS teamwork. The staff, my co-stars and I want to form just as great of a team and make this drama our own.” Nakai commented, “You better not miss any second of this fast-paced drama!” Karina, whose character will eventually become the love interest of the protagonist, is also looking forward to the filming. She said, “I’m nervous since it’s my first time working together with Kimura and Nakai. My character sounds plain, but I still want to give it my all.” The producer added, “We want to give people courage and hope with a protagonist that still lives every day to the fullest despite having lost everything.” ‘PRICELESS’ is scheduled to air its first episode in October.
