My Makjang mode is on! Haha!! After a mind boggling-viewing experience with Ore Ore, my halfway syndrome is relapsing towards Tokyo Bandwagon as I need to take a break from seeing Kame’s face (it’s not me, Kame, it’s you; you and your 33 different looks *sigh*) So I decided to have sabbatical at the 5th episode. And somehow I really want to watch something sad; something heart-wrenching, something that makes me invested and cry like a dweeb. Then I found this drama, Boku no Ita Jikan (the Hours of My Life) that has everything I’ve been looking for: 1.) Makjang Plot: about a guy with terminal illness; 2.) Adorable Leads: Miura Haruma and Tabe Mikako—whom I kinda like since I saw her acting in Tokyo Bandwagon—Some reviews that I read said that they watched this because of the reunion couple from movie Kimi ni Todoke (From Me to You), which I never watched, so this drama couple feels new to me. So, without further ado, I started to watch this drama with no hesitation. And now, Imma share with you all about it. Okay then, cutie-pies, what are we waiting for? Let’s rollin’ to the storaaaayyy!! Swoosh!!!hahaha1(Warning!!! this is soooo spoilery. So, if you still want to continue read it…the decision is in your hands..mwahahahaha!!!)
REPORT THIS AD
First thing first, lemme give you a nutshell information about ALS, since it’s the main topic of the drama. ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis)–taken from the definition on the drama itself—is an illness where the patient muscles all over the body will weaken, and then there will be difficulties in talking and swallowing food and there will be a respiratory problem as well. In order to keep living, the patient will be required to be on a ventilator. In most cases, in three to five years from the onset of symptoms patient will have paralyzed respiratory muscles and die.
And now, what this drama is about? Well, Boku no Ita Jikan (BNIJ) tells a story about Sawada Takuto (Miura Haruma), an average young adult guy who is a people person, has bubbly and fun personality; living an ordinary routine life like going to college, having circle of friends to hang out with, and a wealthy family of father who owns a hospital.
