December is a warm and romantic season, and it is most suitable to use the snowy land of the Northland to meet the scene. The stage of the story is set in the Japanese pure love drama “First Love” in Hokkaido, which caused a topic among the fifth, sixth, and seventh graders. Brings back full memories of chasing Japanese dramas when I was young.

If you could choose again in life, would you pursue your dreams without hesitation, or accept the predestined arrangement? The depiction of life in the play is always going back and forth among various choices, which is heart-wrenching.

This drama is inspired by the two divine songs “First Love” and “First Love” by Utada Hikaru, Japan’s “Heisei singer”. “Tao” (Takeru Sato) became each other’s first love in the late 1990s and separated for some reason. They reunited 20 years later. How will the unfinished relationship continue?

Director Hanzhu Lily’s nostalgic and delicate shooting method is also a highlight. The mints, ice cream sodas, and even nostalgic video games, CD players, old mobile phones, and Hikaru Utada’s first album that appear in the play have become the strongest memories. Classic The Divine Comedy is still so beautiful after decades.

The youngest son of the chaebol family, “Chen Daojun”, then relied on the memory and knowledge before his rebirth, in order to embezzle the entire chaebol family, and launched an unimaginable group succession struggle.
