TBS drama "18/40 ~If We Two Dream and Love~" has been criticized for having many flaws. The key to solving this puzzle may lie with the scriptwriter. The story follows the friendship between 18-year-old pregnant Arisu Nakagawa (Haruka Fukuhara) and 40-year-old Hitoko Narse (Kyoko Fukada), who have put love aside. They meet by chance and develop a friendship that eventually leads them to fall in love with two complicated men. The drama is known for its many flaws, with the latest episode featuring cringe-worthy lines. The scriptwriter, Yuka Ryuui, is known for her work on the 90s classic drama "Hoshi no Kinka," which featured uncomfortable dialogue. It seems that her debut work as a scriptwriter in cheesy romance dramas may still have its effects.
