[Japanese Drama Review] Soshite, Dare mo Inaku Natta

He is a brilliant system engineer who is an up-and-comer at his company. In his private life, he has a fiancée. Just when he was at the pinnacle of joy, he suddenly disappears from the face of the earth. "No, you're not Todo Shinichi." Even the name on his official family registry and certificate of residence has been changed. His bank accounts have been seized and his employment has been terminated on grounds that he is a missing person. Without an official family registry, he can't even get married. Did someone set him up? The suspect begins to emerge... Although Shinichi was left with nothing but loneliness, he won't allow himself to go down this way. He won't give up, no matter how much he is betrayed. He will keep believing in people. No matter what happens to him, he will not succumb. "I will uncover the truth, regardless of what it takes." No matter how many times he falls, Shinichi will get back up. -- NTV

Decided to catch this film - Soshite, Dare mo Inaku Natta (Lost ID) because Fujiwara Tatsuya in it! Oh well, its my kind of drama hence, I will watch it anyway.

Personally, the story was refreshing and kept me in suspense! Though it may appear rather slow-paced, the build up was nicely depicted with the many evidence in subsequent episodes. It had an unexpected twist towards the end, which was smart.

Also, never put all your trust in people. Sometimes, the one who you trust so dearly could betray you that you least expected. Even in such circumstances, we got to learn to forgive and not let anger lead you to do evil things.

"It's easy to turn to the dark side, it's remaining true that's difficult. It's easy to hate people, it's forgiving that's hard. But everyone forgives someone, lives together with someone."
