      I have listened to Glee music. The characters often sing latest popular music so I feel like the drama is familiar to me. I can’t decide my favorite song. I like both original and arrange one.

  4. 1. If your were in the high school in the drama, what would you feel about the club? Would you like to join the club?
    – I want to the Glee club because it’s very famous and looks fun. However, I think I have to put my time for practice so it’s not easy.

    2. Why does Glee become popular do you think?
    – I think their music choise was good. Also, almost all the viewer spent their high school life so they can connect their school life with American school life.

    • I think that can help a relationship because a couple don’t need to think so much for a while. Then, they might feel how important he/she is. So I think if a couple get bored with each other, they should take a break and think each other again.

      Thank you, Yui. I haven’t seen Glee but your article interested me. Also we could discussed about love, that was fun.

      • I don’t think so. Because if a couple take a break, I think a couple will repeat same problems. They can think about each other, however it will be same problem some day.

        Thanks you, Yui. You were nice reading circle reader.
