Oh, it's the queen's language alright... The Queen of Prussia, lol. Oh wow, that clip merited several replays. I kept waiting for Shun to get to the English part before I realized the whole thing was the English part. When he goes "Everyone let's make dream come true together," it felt like a line f...

If anyone wants to watch a scary Shun then watch The neighbour No.13. Creepy.... Scary Shun? As in, serial killah kind of scary? Kewwwwwl. :thumleft: I sure hope it's nothing like the Gackt School of Ackting (in Mr. Brain ), heh heh heh. Sorry to disappoint you but Shun's English in Yume Wo is very...

That little shrimp from NEWS, the one with flying saucers for eyes. It became physically painful to schlep through My Boss, My Hero because of him. (Stop making goo-goo eyes at Nagase Tomoya, dammit. :cussing: )

Although Hana Kimi is an ensemble drama, it isn’t a stretch to assume that her role is pivotal. The introduction of her character, so to say, started the ball rolling. Oh, I totally agree that Ashiya's character is the catalyst for the whole drama. Not disputing that. Which is probably why I expect...

Since you're looking at the bigger picture of NwP (the friendship), were you hoping to see the same thing in Hana Kimi? The whole point of HanaKimi was the portrayal of innocent/naive love and friendship. I think with Hana Kimi I was just hoping to see a more realistic portrayal of things, period. ...

What happens to a Johnny when he gets too old? Is there a Johnny's Seniors? Do they feed him to the Juniors to pass along his strength and accumulated dance moves? Or is he allowed to retire after a simple ceremony where he has his head shaved by Kitagawa and he distributes to fans his remaining st...

There's this new kdrama, You're Beautiful, that just came out with another gender-bender theme. Her portrayal is similar to Maki's aka a girl trying to be a guy (in a male idol group) without much success in convincing the audience that she's a guy. She acts like a girl, sounds like a girl and look...

@ Hae Jin : (Lol, so it had to take Hana Kimi to draw you out of Lurkerdom, ehh? :mrgreen: ) "Comparisons are odious," as the saying goes. But they ARE inevitable. And cultural differences aside, the only valid point for comparison between Maki's turn in Hana Kimi and other gender-bender roles would...

After watching Hana Kimi , I have since reached the following conclusions: 1) The more convinced I am that--with the exception of a very few gems such as Nobuta wo Produce and Stand Up! --high school-based dramas in general are nothing but one big, contiguous farce-o-rama where people are one-dimens...

Was exclusively a K-drama nut since 2003 before giving Hana Yori Dango a try early this year. I liked it a lot, but I wasn't J-hooked.. until a few months later, when I tried watching Pride on a lark (well, hello there, Peggy ... :P ). Heh heh heh. And it was all J-Ent from that point onwards, heh h...
