(warning – spoilers ahead)
In my first review, I mentioned that this drama’s atmosphere slightly reminds me of Code Blue. Now, after watching all the episodes, I don’t get that same feeling because this series didn’t focus much on medical procedures. It was more about the stories of each patient and their impact on the lead characters’ growth and development. Of course, this difference doesn’t affect the quality, but I felt the need to address it since I touched on it previously.
Okay, that is out of the way. So let’s discuss episodes four to ten –
Right from the start, this drama showed great potential, and things only got better as the story progressed. Sakura’s character continued to impress me with her growth. She was able to balance her job as a nurse and her love for Tendo Kairi. As for Tendo, he proved himself as a severe Tsundere. He pretends to ignore things or act like he doesn’t care when he actually does care. This attitude made it so fun for me to watch him being jealous. All the same, Tendo also experienced some character development. He opened up more to Sakura, and we got to see him smile and even laugh. By the way, Satoh Takeru’s smile is so cute and sexy💘💘. Okay, Tendo became more proactive in their relationship. He was an excellent mentor to Sakura and also a very supportive boyfriend. I love that he encouraged her to go study abroad.
The way Sakura and Tendo started dating was adorable and funny, but quite abrupt. The confession in the ambulance showed how desperate Tendo felt at that moment. He really loves her, so I don’t know why he was playing hard to get all this while. He is such a cute tsundere😂😂😂. Plus, I love how he went from telling Sakura to keep their relationship a secret from their colleagues in the hospital to then making a public announcement himself.
Honestly, the chemistry from our leads was insane. I felt like I was intruding into their private space whenever they had intimate scenes. I love them, and I am going to miss them so much. What do I do with my Wednesdays now???😢😢 I am going to miss hearing Tendo say – Baka!!!
Moving on to the side characters and their relationships. Even though I was not too invested in everyone’s story, I still appreciated their presence. My favourite side roles were that of Sakai and Dr. Kisugi / Ryuko and Nishi. I was seriously rooting for Ryuko to get with Nishi, and I love how the writer developed her character. She got more serious by taking over her family’s hospital but still kept her right by refusing to go along with the arranged marriage. In the case of Sakai, she became the next “Warrior-Chick” after Sakura by following Dr. Kisugi until he took notice of her.
Another thing I didn’t care much for was the love rivals, and I am so glad that this drama did not drag things out. Both leads were sure of their feelings and never allowed any secondary party to interfere. So Miori and Kamijo failed to create unnecessary misunderstandings. At some point, I was really annoyed with Kamijo because of his ridiculous entitlement, but when they gave him some back story, I tried to understand him. Still, that didn’t excuse his wrong deeds from my book until he apologized to Tendo. In Miori’s case, I was genuinely baffled about how she came to fall in love with her dead sister’s boyfriend. Plus, the fact that she was so bold about it pissed me off even more. All the same, I came up with a theory that she might still be grieving; hence she was looking for a piece of her sister in Tendo. This theory was later confirmed. I really appreciate how both love rivals were resolved.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Ari-chan is another side character that I really loved. I am glad that she was able to get her surgery and go back to school.
Now, the only aspect of this drama that threw me off till the end was how Sakura never stopped calling Tendo, sensei. I really wanted her to try calling him by his name. Since it was not a big deal, I just rolled with her calling him sensei till the end.
There were a lot of moments throughout this show that made my heart flutter. So let’s discuss a few.
– Ryuko’s Constant Interruptions: Somehow, whenever Sakura and Tendo tried to get intimate, Ryuko always came in to interrupt. This became an ongoing joke for me because it happened quite a lot😂😂😂. One of my favourite scenes of such an occurrence was in episode seven. She came in, saw that they were kissing and just started heading back out like nothing happened😂😂😂😂 –
– Sakura Vs. Tendo Tease Battle: These two enjoyed teasing each other with their constant staring battles. Sakura is also an adorable and mischievous character, so she messed with Tendo a lot. A good example was when she made him kiss her after smearing ice cream on her face. My heart always went doki-doki during such moments –
– Tendo meeting Sakura’s family Vs. Sakura meeting Tendo’s family: Tendo’s meeting with Sakura’s family was really hilarious. Her family asked him the right questions, and that actually made Sakura realize that he had not said “I love you” to her yet. My favourite scene was when they caught her family peeping at them. In the case of Sakura’s meeting with Tendo’s parents, it was awkward but still quite funny. I loved her reaction when he declared that she’s the woman he plans to marry –
– Wedding Kiss: The final kiss was by far my favourite from Sakura and Kairi. It was such a sweet scene, and I caught myself replaying it a good number of times. They are so cute. Also, they looked so good. Sakura looked very beautiful in her wedding gown, and Tendo was rocking that three-piece suit –
Another moment I loved was when Tendo listed out all the things he loves about Sakura and finally said: “I love you.” I’m not going to include that clip, so go watch it yourself. It is in episode nine. That was a very emotional scene, and I died when Sakura said she was hungry after hearing him pour out his heart to her. Like what???… BAKA!!
Overall, this was an excellent series from start to finish. I will really miss it. Satoh Takeru and Kamishiraishi Mone are fantastic actors. They truly owned their craft. The supporting actors also brought their A-game, so we as the viewers were able to get such a perfect production.
I loved everything. Starting from the main couple’s chemistry to how well developed the story was. The pacing was also impeccable. There was never a time when the story felt like a drag, and the ending was solid. The original soundtrack was also very catchy. I love how the drama used different instrumental versions of “I LOVE” by Official HIGE DANdism. I already have a post about this OST, it can be accessed with this link 👉🏼 Official HIGE DANdism – I LOVE: Song Of The Week
I honestly wouldn’t mind if this show has a second season, but for now, I am satisfied. Therefore, my rating for Koi wa Tsuzuku yo Doko Made mo is 10/10. To get a better understanding of how I rate each drama, read this post 👉🏼 Drama|Movie Rating Guide
