30 Day Asian Drama Challenge – Day 7
Ah, again, when it comes to favorites…it’s really so hard to choose.
Day 7: Your favorite Japanese Drama?
Hmm, what do I consider my FAVORITE Japanese drama? Should I say HanDan again? But…while it’s my gateway and one of the dramas I can watch over and over again without being bored…I’m not sure it’s my favorite Japanese drama of all time to date.
Let me see…there was that silly little drama Atashinchi no Danshi that holds a special place in my heart along with Horikta Maki’s Innocent Love…but they don’t call out “favorite.” Maybe Hana Kimi…
If I think hard, I think it might be a toss up between two dramas based on a mangas. 😛 The first being BLOODY MONDAY which introduced me to the awesomeness of the younger actor (he’s only 5 years younger than I am) Miura Haruma. LOVED him as Falcon and who can forget the eccentric terrorist J as portrayed by Narimiya Hiroki? And then we have LIAR GAME starring Matsuda Shota and Toda Erika which was really excellent.
Nope, I’ll go with a drama from last season. As of now, my favorite Japanese drama is Oguri Shun’s and Ishihara Satomi’s Rich Man, Poor Woman. The chemistry between the leads, the plot, kind of going behind the scenes at an IT company…it wasn’t all that bad. Sure there was some rather poor character development and some agonizing parts to the plot, but I was thoroughly enamored with this drama and fell hard for the characters…well…not all of them, but most of them.
