Beppin-san theme song will be Hikari no Atelier by Mr. Children.

I think Asadoras are becoming quite of prestigious, right? It's been a while since their theme songs are sang by famous japanese artists, like Yuzu, ayaka, Utada Hikaru, AKB48 and now Mr. Children.

After having watched Japanese dramas and films for a lot of years, I lost a bit of interest in watching non-top. Now I only pick those who I really feel that I will finish until the end (like Jin&2, Kaseifu no Mita, Hanzawa Naoki... it's been a drama per year almost now). But as I never watched an A...

Fashion King, I didn't saw that one. Is the ending really that bad? Can someone tell me about it? I'm really curious right now, but better use the spoiler tag because of other members here.

I'm struggling to finish Yi San, I'm currently at episode 40, but I'm making an effort to watch it. Well, it's not because the drama is bad, it is pretty good actually, I love the story, the setting and the actors, but hell its a 70-ep Taeha drama, way too many episodes and the story is slow conside...

Ohh I forgot, there's other drama that I didn't finish: Monstar. I truly like the storyline, music, etc...and I understand why people like it but I guess I'm losing interest with High School dramas with time because I'm growing old, well I'm in my 20s, but it seems that growing older every year, cha...

Baby Face Beauty - I really like the story and I'm fond of Jang Na Ra, but somewhat I can't go to episode 2/3. The Painter of The Wind - I think I was at episode 4 or 6 when I stopped watching it, ahhhh, I need to gain strenght to finish this one someday. Gu Family Book - I still didn't watch the fi...

I started My Love Patzzi, quite an oldie, but I felt in love with it just with the first episode. Plus only 10 episodes, I will definately watch until the end.

I'm still on episode 43 but I love Amachan so much at this point. I wonder if the Tokyo arc will be great as well, but the story of it doesn't sound interesting to me because I'm all for traditional stuff, and the ama-san storyline is so great and awesome. Is Tokyo arc great? Why Aki changes her min...

Anyhoo, I am starting with Faith next and then Gentleman's Dignity... fingers crossed that these are better than BAP. Both great choices, I really liked them both, though they're so diferent from each other :mrgreen: I tend to be quite critical when it comes to time travelling adaptations, because ...

There's actually a diference between Asadoras from Apr-Sept and Asadoras from Sept-Mar right? The earlier is more around World Ward II time and the latter is more 80s/90s right? Or I'm mistaken? Just curiosity...

I wonder if Nounen Rena will host alongside Arashi the upcoming Kouhaku Uta Gassen, the last 3 years, Asadora's main actresses from April~September (Matsushita Nao;Inoue Mao; Horikita Maki) have been invited to host the Red team. That will make Rena the upcoming female host if they still follow the...

I still didn't watch it, but from comments, it seems Amachan is one of the best Asadoras.

If I liked Queen of Reversals, Lie To Me, Coffee Prince, and (this one is Japanese) Hotaru no Hikari, what are some dramas I should watch next? (J- or K- ... if K- can you recommend another good one with Yoon Eun Hye or the lead CEO guy from Queen of Reversals?) With Yoon Eun Hye, you can watch Goo...

It ENDED sadly!!! I want a second season with their married life, but since its Fuji TV TWO that might happen.

The Final was beautiful, well-done, romantic and sweet.

What a great remake, one of the best remakes I've seen.

This drama airs at Fuji TV TWO, its a pay channel, I don't think we will get ratings for it unlike the free channel dramas.

Anyone here saw Helter Skelter? I thought the movie was... disturbing and intense, it had many crazy scenes, but I have to say Erika had such a great acting, I applause because roles like that can make you through some mental issues after doing it. Another great point is the coloring, atmosphere and...
