This is a wonderful drama, and in my opinion one of the best ever produced. It is wonderfully paced, and the actors are top-notch. Unlike some dramas that have one major plot, Summer Snow covers a variety of areas such as teen pregnancy, taking responsibility for your actions, true love, sacrifice, knowing when to do what's right, choosing to live your life depsite physical limitations and many others. I would readily suggest this to anyone who wants to watch the best of Japanese dramas. -- Zenith

Okay plot + Average "actors" = A pretty good JDORAMA.
Never thought this drama would actually be good. I thought it would be a slow-paced, boring drama, but I was wrong. The pace isn't overly exciting that it would keep you glue on your TV for one whole episode, nor slow that would make you doze off. It has a nice subtle pace, that fits the drama's mood perfectly. It has it's funny moments, and sad moments.. mostly sad since it's a drama. The sub-plots will keep you interested until the climax. The actors fits their characters perfectly. It's very realistic, and ends bittersweet. In the end, it was nice, it kept me interested, but it's nothing special. I don't consider it as a must watch. -- BOGCHI

Another health-illness drama. At first I prepare myself for any sad possibility, but it actually turned out great. Not so spoiling, yet wont disappoint you either. Especially the theme songs that is perfectly macth the story, as a matter of fact, I actually think it's the theme songs that hold the story up together. I'd like to quote it here, "It's Summer Snow in the deep blue sea..." :)
Anyway, other good things about it were all well said by Zenith and BOGCHI. I'm also not considering it as a must watch drama, but I can definitely say, it wont disappoint you at any rate to watch it! -- zhai
