Starting the Life of Domesticity in ‘Living With Him’ EP1

Living With Him

Kazuhito and Ryoto start their domestic life together as roommates! Will things go smoothly? Let’s find out in the first episode of ‘Living With Him‘.

Ryota is the oldest of three siblings, and he has known household chores from the get-go. His life was turned upside-down when his mother announced that he would be living together with his childhood friend, Kazuhito. Learning that the two are going off to college, their parents decided that it would be more cost-efficient if their children would just share one house. And so, without any more discussions and amidst the cheers of Ryota’s younger sisters, the two freshmen are now living together in one house.

Kazuhito and Ryota begin fixing their house together, and we find out what happened between them. The two have been childhood friends because their mothers are good friends, as well. However, since Kazuhito studied in a different school and they ran in different circles, the two barely spoke anymore. This is the reason why, Ryota says, he was hesitant to live together with him because they were “practically strangers”. Kazuhito asked him what he meant by that, and he admitted that it was because he was in the popular group and Ryota was not. And in fact, everybody had a crush on him. Kazuhito brushed it off again and said that he was actually excited to share a house with Ryota. But once again, Ryota points out that it might be awkward living together especially if Kazuhito brings in his girlfriend, to which he said that he actually does not have one. Ryota pesters him about why he is single when his sisters have repeatedly told him that he is popular among the girls and that he even plays baseball well. But Kazuhito said it was the opposite — that he actually gets dumped quite often and that he injured his shoulder so he couldn’t play baseball anymore. Ryota apologizes for not knowing about his injury and then offers that he will help him find his fault for why he gets dumped.

The next day, the two went out on a non-date date and Ryota continued to find “faults” in Kazuhito. They went out to play in a baseball pen, even though Ryota was hesitant to ask him at first because of his injury. But Kazuhito was eager and wanted to go play ball with him, doing non-surprisingly well in hitting the baseball despite his injury. The two also went to the furniture shop to buy some other things they needed for their house, even deciding to buy a “couple mug”, which seemed to satisfy Kazuhito. They ended the day by eating together, and Ryota was still perplexed as to why Kazuhito was still getting dumped.

Ryota remains confused even a day after, and even while he is cleaning the house. Thoughts of it filled his mind and he collapsed on the sofa out of what seemed like exhaustion. Kazuhito comes home to find a sleeping Ryota on the sofa. He tried waking him up, to no avail. So, the worried Kazuhito carried Ryota to his bedroom and tried to leave as soon as he had made sure he was comfortable on his bed. However, the sleeping Ryota grabbed his hand, which made him stay the rest of the night.

The following morning, Ryota wakes up to his hand holding another — which turns out to be Kazuhito. He asked him what they were doing, and he explained that he passed out the previous night. Kazuhito did not make a big deal of what happened, and instead, asked if he wanted coffee. Ryota says he does, and then wonders aloud why Kazuhito is still single when he does things like taking care of him. Kazuhito humored him with an answer, saying that he doesn’t usually do things like this to his exes. In fact, the reason his exes often break up with him is because they think that he actually likes someone else. The two went to the kitchen as Kazuhito prepared coffee. He takes out a cheesecake, one that he bought the night before, and is actually Ryota’s favorite — the same one that they ate together when they were kids.

Writer’s thoughts:

As the oldest child who bore the responsibilities of the “second parent”, Ryota seems like he’s not used to being taken care of. Kazuhito, on the other hand, seems like he likes Ryota a lot more than it seemed, seeing as he was looking through their photos when they were children and he can’t seem to keep his heterosexual relationships for longer than a few days. Although they have drifted apart for years, it also looks like they have picked up where they left off and merely updated each other on what they missed along the way. This series is such a feel-good one so far, with no intense drama behind. The chemistry of the leads is also very apparent, even if there are still no “skinships” involved. Kazuhito, in particular, looks very smitten with anything that Ryota does. We absolutely cannot wait what will happen between the two, especially with Ryota who confuses his own feelings with confusion of why his handsome roommate is still single when really, it’s probably because he’s waiting for him to come to his senses? Let’s find out in the next episode this Friday.
