18 men and women get together and deepen their relationship on a three-day trip to Okinawa, and find a love partner among the group.

It may sound like a concept that is overly done. However, Netflix’s REA(L)OVE program is a little different. What’s different is that the participants are unusual. They are all people with a dark past that cannot be said to others. Former criminals, cheaters, debts, porn actors etc. There are reasons why these participants struggle to get into love because of these wounds. You can look into how people fall in love and how their burdens affect their relationships.

Based on the belief that “If you fall in love with a foreigner, you will be able to speak English”, a “global” love reality show is created. This reality show watches over how love forms between Japanese girls, who can’t speak English, and foreign boys.

When a couple is formed, they become a trial couple. The rule is to have a relationship for three months on the program. The foreign boys are prohibited from speaking Japanese during a date, even if they can understand Japanese. The use of different languages and foreign cultures is what makes this show stand out. It is a unique concept that is different from the other reality dating TV shows on this list.
