I'm trying to identify a J-drama. I remember it's about a journalist who gets involved in a political scandal of some sort. He gets some information from a female secretary he gets romantically involved with, a leak about some sensitive issue, and she gets fired. His actions call his journalistic integrity into question I remember, since I think he loses his job too? In any case, the secretary turns against him and testifies in court, so he is arrested and imprisoned while on trial. I remember he also has a wife (who finds out about the affair I think). I don't know how it ends, as I didn't see it all. It struck me at the time as a bit different than other shows, with a more "mature" story and execution (non of the usual shenanigans of J-dramas).

Thanks in advance!

That's Toda Erika. I think it's Reverse, which is a TBS drama.

Hello, pretty desperate to know what this drama from my memory is. Maybe a mystery crime keiji dorama, movie, manga or book even.

What I can recall is there's a high school/college guy who is always getting bullied by a group of male peers (one of them is their parents' boss's son). He always studies at a family restaurant where he got to know a waitress girl. He gifted her a keychain that can record sound. One day, the girl was kidnapped by the group of bullies. The boy (or his mother) has rented an apartment for studying but unknown to him, the group of bullies used the apartment to confine the girl and torture her. The girl jumped out of the window to escape after a few weeks.

These are the part that im not sure of: The boy went to check the apartment and as he was leaving, he witnessed the girl jumping out and died. The bullies pushed the blame to him and escaped scotfree while he was jailed (?). In the end, the detective (or someone) gave him the same keychain the girl had that proved his innocence (she recorded her words: although this is his apartment, he was never here at all.)

Any ideas? ><

Hi guys,

I need help finding this Japanese drama. I only have a vague recollection of it since it's been a few years since I first watched it. It was about these people who would go into this room (I think it was a karaoke room) and watch videos of their lives. I can't remember if the people going into the room were dead or not and were watching videos of their lives leading up to their deaths.

I'd really appreciate it if anyone is able to figure out what drama I'm referring to with the little information I am able to give.


Thanks!

So I was in Japan in April this year and I turned on the tv one night and there was this drama on. I tuned into only the last 5 or 10 minutes but basically this young man and woman were in an inn/hotel place wearing yukata and they were starting to get sort of intimate. But then the man got a phone call or either he changed his mind or something and got up suddenly to change into his business clothes and quickly left her there. I know this is really vague but the male actor WAS SO BEAUTIFUL I need to know who he was. Thank you!! :salut:

It would be good if you could remember more specifically what time it aired, or the day. It would be easier to exclude other dramas then.
Here you can see a list of some of the dramas that aired in April. All times are Japanese, i.e 22:00 (10pm).

So a man in suit knocked out a gorgeous hotel lady and then wrapped her? Then suddenly some men wearing like Sith lords from Star Wars coming close and pulled out a pen sized lightsaber... Just to stab that poor lady to her chest and dies. Now I'm really curious what show is this?

These 3 videos had a thing in common. All women gotten stabbed by a knife.

So I'm not sure if these 3 are in a same show?

And at the 3rd video. Was the woman who got stabbed is Junko from Kagi No Kakatta?

Based on my long time searching.

1st was "ON 異常犯罪捜査官 藤堂比奈子"

2nd was "水城さや2"

Still can't find the title of the 3rd video.
