Saki ni Umareta Dake no Boku
先に生まれただけの僕



Summary from AsianWiki:
Rosuke Narumi (Sho Sakurai) works at a trading company and he is pretty good at his job. He dates Satoko Matsubara (Mikako Tabe). The trading company has a business relationship with a private high school experiencing some difficulties. One day, Rosuke Narumi is appointed as the principle of the private high school. Rosuke Narumi soon discovers how different the work environment is from his previous job.

So the school can run in the black, Rosuke Narumi implements cost cutting measures. School staff members including Chihiro Mashiba (Yu Aoi) oppose his plan.

I just finished it. It was a cute drama, but won't go on my fave Sho drama list. It was pretty predictable, but it was cute. The Manager was by far my favorite character.

I haven't seen the final episode yet. I finished downloading it before I left on Mon but didn't have time to watch it.

I think this drama is okay but definitely not the best Sho drama. I wish Tabe had a bigger role. Oh and Takashima surely knows how to play annoying characters.

In the past, I tried figuring out which role of Sho's was the most like him, and I think we found it in Narumi-san. It's like the character was written for him.

Isn't that what actually happened? I could swear I read that the writer created the role explicitly for Sho.

I'm watching this. only left with the final episodes :)


I like that I can see people who want to change the school and think that all of that should start within oneself.
As for the teachers I like Mashiba sensei and Shimazu sensei characters

Before I read about it somewhere, I thought that myself. Sho's been typecasted. XD Which isn't bad.
