Proposal Daisakusen: Afterthoughts

(Knock on the door, and it shall be opened to you.)
The 3 lines spoken by the yousei to Ken, before their parting. Make a whole lot of sense to me, and, I believe, to many fans of Proposal Daisakusen. The main points of the drama in the 10 episodes seemed to be ‘Do not leave any regrets’ and ‘You will never know unless you try’, but turns out in the last episode that the main theme the drama is trying to point out is that ‘What is important is not how you could have changed the past, but how you can change the present for the future’.
Well, the ending of the drama is rather…unsatisfying, but hey, Rei did choose Ken, so I can’t complain much, can I? 😀 As for Tada, well, guess I was too skeptical about him…turns out to be a super duper nice guy…even willing to give up his own marriage for the happiness of the one he loves. Feeling rather sorry for him now (my vote still goes to Ken).
I wish the yousei can make appearances in other dramas, playing the same ‘mentor’ role to the respective protagonists. He doesn’t have a background story in this drama, so technically it is possible for him to appear in other dramas as well, dun you agree?
Change yourself, and you will change your future.
NOTE: CHANGES TO BE EXPECTED AFTER I’VE WATCHED THE SP…AND PROBABLY AFTER A POST ON THE SP AS WELL. 😛
