:blink :P :lol XD. WaterBoys 2 to be more precise.

I say, if you'd like to see more homosexual relationships (or gay characters) in dramas, watch HK series. In recent years, I have seen at least three dramas that deal with gay couples. I don't remember the titles though, but there are some.

I have never seen a gay Jdrama or Kdrama though. But then again, I'd just started watching J/Kdrama recently.

Oyajii had the actual gay guy going out with Hirosue. Of course, she ends up dumping him though.

Asunaro Hakusho. That's the only one *I* can think of where it's not made into something comedic. Oh! I believe Renai Hensachi as well. I'm not really positive b/c it's been a long time since I've seen Renai and I may be mixing it up with something else.

The weird thing was he started wearing makeup (I think) and started hanging out at a club with's funny how jdramas always have gay characters who are so stereotypically gay and flamboyant. I guess it's non-threatening if they're portrayed that way.

Love Complex has a lesbian relationship in it - that's one of the few dramas that takes homosexuality a bit more seriously.

For HK dramas: there is the King of Yesterday and Tomorrow, Net Deception (lesbian parents) and I'm sure there are others but I haven't watched too many in recent years.

Besides the aboved mentioned...

Dosoukai comes to mind. Lead character is guy and the content on the drama is more or less based upon how he comes out.

Ningen shikkaku, Neverland - characters can be interpreted as homosexual or just growing up blues, experimenting to discover one's sexuality. You do get to see kissing or hint of sexual relations.

Like in animes and mangas, most dramas tend to lean towards the slashable aspect. Overcreative yaoi fanminds are known to flood the various bbs discussing the "love: between these "couples". Few on top of my head at the moment....
IWGP - Makoto x King (there's actually quite a lot of DJs for IWGP)
Goksuen 2 - Hayato x Ryu
Tiger and Dragon - Toraji x Ryuji
Beach Boys
Antique - The drama itself is at best slashable cos they toned down the gay aspect since it was a prime-time drama. Manga which the storyline was based on is rather explicit in its gay content.

I'm not sure if it's HK or Taiwanese, but i know Crystal Boys is about gay people. I heard it's based on a book written by someone named "Pai" (he's supposed to be respected and all). I haven't actually seen it since i haven't found eng subs.

Tumbling (Mizusawa Taku). It is only a character, but he is a serious character.

And it was a significant part of the story arc, and treated respectfully.

Sunao ni Narenakute. Linda is gay. Actually i like that part.
Also I'm currently watching Hayami-san to Yobaeru Hi, the fourth child will have a gay relationship, i think. Haven't watched the latest episode yet. :wub: :wub:

The drama doesn't do justice to the manga, which is hilarious and has at least 2 gay characters. The drama made it too wishy-washy.

'Last Friends' actually has some lesbian touch, one of the main characters is suffering from gender confusion (is that the right term?) well basically she thinks she's captured in the wrong body and would make a much better man. So she's secretly in love with her childhood friend. dunno, if i explained it in a good way.

Oh yeah, Antique did feel a bit gay. And I agree with Last Friends. It also seemed that way to me.
How about the gay character in Hana Kimi :D

"Dare Yori mo Mama wo Aisu" and "Cleopatra na Onnatachi" both have gay characters with major storylines :)

Last Cinderella has a gay character, the barkeeper. It is taken quite serious, I think.

Abe Sadao makes for a great gay character! I am always amazed at how he can disappear into a role.
