[Japanese Drama Review] My Lover's Secret (Aishite tatte, Himitsu wa Aru)

When Rei Okumori (Sota Fukushi) was in the 3rd grade of middle school, he killed his father to protect his mother Akiko (Honami Suzuki). His father physically abused his mother. They buried his dead body in their yard and made it appear he went missing. Since that time, they kept they their secret and did not tell anyone.

8 years later, Rei Okumori is now a law school student and pursuing his dream of becoming a lawyer. At his law school, he meets Sawa Tachibana (Haruna Kawaguchi) who hopes to become a public prosecutor. They fall in love and Rei Okumori wants to marry Sawa Tachibana. He begins to receive a message from someone that knows his secret.

Finished watching this Japanese series - My Lover's Secret (Aishite tatte, Himitsu wa Aru). Personally, I felt that the story had a smart plot which kept me in great suspense.  

Particularly, I enjoyed the progression in each episodes, which led me to ponder and followed it closely. It was indeed mysterious and suspenseful. Not to forget, those emotional scenes that was beautifully presented. The drama also had an unexpected twist towards the finale which heightened the show.

It also depicted an unconditional mother's love. A mother could basically just do anything for a child, to protect and keep him safe and happy. Based on the final episode, most likely, there will be a sequel to this series. Am certainly looking forward to it!
