Boy, this drama is addicting. Initially I didn't want to watch it, because I'm not a fan of Kame, and the plot did sound just like one of those teeny dramas which has been produced repeatedly. However, I decided to check it out since most of people here like it, and after the first episode, I am hoo...

I just watched episode 5, this drama gets sadder and sadder by each episode. When each episode ends, it always leaves me something to think about. It's very sad to hear Aya saying "sorry" over and over again, thinking that she's a burden to society, even when it's not her fault that she got the illn...

I was just on the wiki and I saw Narumi Riko profile which says she was born in '92 :o If that's the case then I'm much more impressed with her acting in the show, also it says she was in Trick 1 & 2.. anyone know who she played? (I can only think of maybe one of the kids taught by Yamada's mother....

I highly recommend Trick series (all 3 seasons). They're currently being seeded well, so you can grab them now. I enjoyed the series tremendously. It's hilarious, the characters have great chemistry together, the stories are well developed. I'm sure, you'll learn a trick or more when you finish this...

That's right, I think I'm starting to like Jun more in this drama. But then, I think it's okay to discuss his acting in this thread, because commenting on the actor's portrayal of the character is also part of a discussion, ne :)? I was very impressed with the subtlety of that particular scene so I ...

It's a tad too early to compare, don't you think?? Meteor Garden is completed, whereas HYD has just started, and only the first episode was shown. It might seem serious and dark for now, but who knows, it might get lighter in later episodes. But no matter what, I like the Japanese version better. I ...

Aya - you can easily get the batch for kamisama... now, since it's part of the permanent seeding project. I got the whole drama that way.

Just finished episode 3, and I really did cry near the end. The main actress acts so well. I have never seen her in any dorama before, but she really amazed me in this drama. She has such natural appearance on the screen, and her acting is refreshing as well. I'm truly hooked now.

I guess this is the reason I see this dorama in a little bit different way then you guys. I don't have an opinion on how the characters should look like that one is too short and the other is not hot enough. So won't be compering this dorama to MG/anime/manga or whatever got released. but I guess n...

I finished the first episode a couple of hours ago, and honestly, I have mixed feelings about it. I highly anticipated the drama, and I myself have read the manga and watched the Taiwanese version, so I came to view HYD with some set expectation in mind. I agree that the cinematography and the actin...
