Your Lie in April is the story of Kousei, a young piano prodigy who, after the death of his mother, had a mental breakdown and ultimately lost the ability to hear the music he played. Three years later, he meets his playboy best friend’s new girlfriend, Kaori—a free-spirited violinist who makes it her life’s mission to rekindle Kousei’s lost love for performing music on stage.
Your lie in April is a love story of two flawed teens brought together by their love of music. As I considered, this drama shows us the totally raging of two different situations; the battle of illness and the deep remorse of a child who was abused for the sake of his music.
I would call it also a deceitful masterpiece wherein at first it appears light-hearted, the songs are quite adorable, the visual was full of colorful pastels that lead you to the idea of being in love again, and yet it was more than that. The story is quite deeper, emotional and totally bittersweet.Though, there two sides who debated on this show- those who absolutely love it, and those that strongly dislike it, well I’m on the side of liking it. The characters of our spirited violinist who is confident, beautiful, fragile, strong-willed, and with Kosei’s black and white life, it was all simply blended into a chord of a vibrant journey.
With good art, music, likable characters and pain, I give this 9/10.
Spoiler: Why lie in April? It’s all there in Kaori’s letter to Kousei.
It was such a lovely day. All her friends and family gathered together to celebrate the most awaiting day. Never in her life, she imagined she would meet someone exactly the person she longs to have; good, kind and handsome. Not that he only accepted her, but everyone around in her life. It was the miracle she was wishing for. To have someone who will call her own.
Everyone is smiling, wishing them well, sharing the incontestable feelings as if their prayers have been answered as well. There was no hesitation, no looking back because the past is something to be learned, but the present is more significant.
Promises are made, but not to be broken.
Love will never be weakened.
Always ready to face the approaching dares and will never forget the affirmations made.
Love is made to be loyal, faithful and joyful.
It must be respected. It needs to be enjoyed.
“I have prepared everything in my life, but you, I never see you coming. You are my most favorite surprise.” He said.
I woke up with the sound of my alarm clock, damn, we should have kissed!
Sad to say, the best hit has never had the chance to get a high rate till the show has ended. But why did I completed the 16 series? Since it was very light and cute, I found myself enjoying it without expecting lavish and never made a complaint. I just went with the flow.
Honestly, there is a big potential in this drama if it was just presented with direction, surprising twist and turns and more discoveries to our leads. Though this drama has the concept of time travel, the lack of story development has been scored. Few questions left unanswered and it’s up to you to analyze the whole thing or you can just go on with your life.
What I enjoyed most in this drama are all the fresh faces of the whole cast. Music was very best too. Love theme? Nah I don’t buy it. Friendship bonding? a big yes. Family relationship? a plus-plus.
So if you want to watch this drama, go on and enjoy. Just don’t expect too much because you might not get the best hit.
I Appreciate you being a sport minded person. From wrestling and boxing as your passing hobbies, then basketball, which we both liked and you enjoyed most.
This time, I allowed you to join the Taekwondo training thinking it would only be a past time for you, but when you asked my permission to join the school tournament as a representative of your level, I never say YES. We argued about it and you are mad at me.
I don’t care if you’d think I never supported you. How can I allow my one and only to get hurt with kicks and punches and who knows what will happen out there? Call me selfish, but I just love you that I couldn’t even bear to think you would be physically hurt. You knew my reasons, and it will never change.
As a Parent, we encourage our kids to do the things they truly enjoyed and promise them to support in any ways we can, but what if we don’t agree in the dreams they have chosen? and they thought we are the one who’s blocking their path to success?
Truly, it is a challenge to guide them while being objective about our own feelings as a Parent.
Fight for my way is a kind of drama which you can totally relate. It has the story of our very own which we walked every day with struggles, failures, and achievement in our lives. It features, the chances to attain what has missed by giving up on our dreams and love. It's good to be true that after all, it's not too late to have what we want.
I like all the cast in this drama, it suits them all. The individual characters have their own stories to tell in their own limelight. What I like is their friendship bond, you'd wish you grew up with them too.
Overall, this drama is refreshing to watch. They were all cute and entertaining.

I’m not going to lie. I really don’t like this drama in the Korean version.
I love musical drama, but in here, the music seems to become exhausted because conflict is an integral part of the plot, it was overloaded to handle.
For the first few episodes, it was fun to watch, but then they failed the consistency to set back the settings of what a musical drama should be. The balance of melody has been turned off and the harmony vanished by adversities.
Only this drama showcase an enjoyable music list and fresh faces. Aside from that, nothing stands.
A green, elongated, legless with deadly eyes has been chasing me for hours. I know what it is. I know it can cause my death. I’m so terrified, I couldn’t even scream for help. I can still move, run here and there, avoiding to be swallowed, outing for my survival. Then, unexpectedly, the poisonous eyes closed, down to the ground, wheezing and now it has been put inside the box; locked and isolated, probably lifeless.
I saw him. He had the bat. He strikes and killed the venomous snake. He’s my knight in shining armor. I wonder who he was, he wasn’t familiar at all. I never had the chance to thank him, or even asked his name.
When he can still sense that I am still frightened, he unlocked the box and grip the snake out. With his strong hand, he jiggled it and said, “see, it’s dead”.
I glared at it, making sure it would never come back to me. But all of a sudden the dead serpent turned into a human being – the face of the person I truly hate; the gossiper, the traitor, the pretender and self-righteous ex-friend.
I know, she’s always been the serpent.
I woke up with the happy hiss. I’m glad she was dead in my dream.
There is hope and greater purpose to your life. Sometimes, it is better to be a miracle for someone else, than to receive a miracle in your circumstances. I honestly didn’t think miracles could ever come from my broken pieces, and I was disabled by fear that my dreams would always remain a dream.
I wasn’t pretending that night. I just don’t want to stop you.
I had no intention to like you, it just happened out of nowhere. I admit I had a bad moment with my past love, settling my heart in forceful resolution, thinking it would just pass, looking for something I could divert off and hoping to forget at least a few minutes of my sad life.
I was drinking too much that night, swaying my blues over the facade charmed of alcohol while clinging to your shoulder. Yes, I was drunk, but I know, how it feels good to touch you.
I felt dizzy and was about to flop, but you were there leading me to my bedroom, holding me close. I know it was you and not him. It wasn’t hard to recognize the difference; the smell, the touch, the grip…
You were smoothing my hair… whispering me to sleep. No way I can’t stop you, that’s been all I need, you have comforted me.
Then I felt your lips on my head. It was enough to let me sleep.
I know tomorrow will never be the same my friend. I know.
What is success? How do I define it with my own experience and defeats? Well, I have my own definitions, maybe most of you would not agree.
I only considered success when I was at school, fantasizing I could achieve anything when I fly out to the real world. At this instant, I ceased to think about it – anymore. I am in the midst of battle, and when you are in combat, you could no longer think of success, but only how to live and to survive.
“Success is the achievement of something planned or attempted.
Survival is staying alive or in existence despite of.”
I just thought, success is only for those who have enormous courage to fight for their own dreams – from those who have tried to block their victory and even have the ability to control their destiny. Success is not to those who are afraid to take risks, who has only limited imaginations, not for those who can’t fully trust themselves and who worries too much to fail.
You can have success if you are brave.
You can survive if you don’t choose.
How can I be successful when I am just following the flow, when lifting the burden only I can carry. I don’t go beyond what I cannot do. I have never tried to surpass afar. I am just too comfortable in my comfort zone.
It’s been three years since the devastating accident . . . three years since Mia walked out of Adam’s life forever.
If you have read the first book “If I Stay” or had watched the movie, then you need to know what happens next after Mia opened her eyes.
Where She Went, is the aftermath of Mia’s recovery and the pain of Adam’s promise. For me, the second book was much better than the first. The emotions were so intense that you must understand what was really going on between their hearts, why the comfort from the warmth of each other had separated them.
Where she went?
What happened to him?
What awaits them?
If you want to find out, just read.
If you stay, I’ll do whatever you want. I’ll quit the band; go with you to New York. But if you need me to go away, I’ll do that too. .. And that would suck, but I’ll do it. I can lose you like that, if I don’t lose you today. I’ll let you go. If you stay. – Adam’s Promise
When I was seven years old, I signed up for piano lessons, but it doesn’t last. I couldn’t remember why, but as a kid, I know I have enjoyed it even though I have never gone into the recitals.
I also tried to strike the guitar chord, but it didn’t last even. I just tried it for my enjoyment then. The fact is, I like music, but musical instruments don’t like me at all. I always envy those who can play any musical instruments flawlessly, it’s always been one of my dreams.
So now, I just play my own instrument (mouth) by singing in karaoke bars or at home. At least my voice doesn’t sounds suck. “,)
