I am so surprised it has taken this long for a remake to come out fpr popular story Kimi Wa Petto (I refuse to count the horrible Korean Movie that attempted and failed to match the drama version.) This fangirl is all in as they attempt to create the magical chemistry that made the original one of my all time favorite Jdramas. Because who doesn’t love a story about an older woman keeping a hottie as a pet?
Sumire Iwaya (Noriko Iriyama) works as an editor for a well known newspaper. She is attractive and graduated from a prestigious university.
She goes through a difficult period after being dumped by her boyfriend and getting demoted at work. One day, she picks up a beautiful young man, Takeshi Goda (Jun Shison), out of a box. Takeshi looks like her former pet Momo and Sumire offers to let Takeshi live in her home as her pet.
The teaser shows that the drama will stick pretty close to the manga story line so it will all come down to whether Noriko Iriyama & Jun Shison have any chemistry. Lets all pray to the drama gods that they do since I really love this story and think it should be shared to a whole new generation of drama addicts.
Kimi Wa Petto will air on Feb 6th.
