I had a Korean friend visiting, and as we were drinking beer and flipping channels we stumbled upon the International Channel. She wanted to see how well she could remember her Japanese, so we watched for a while. The show was Three Grown Men, and in the scene that was on, a woman was standing in a ...

I watched the first 9 episodes yesterday (!!!) -- I just couldn't stop watching. Yes, this show is silly and unrealistic, but it's also funny and romantic and absolutely adorable. It's a classic Cinderella story, complete with the prince (of pop) bringing back Xiao Shi's lost shoe at one point. (Tha...

Mine was Three Grown Men . My friend Yong-Mi and I were channel-surfing and she paused on the show because she wanted to see if she could remember enough Japanese to follow it. The subtitles were what grabbed me, though -- a woman was standing in a window, speaking into a cellphone to a man downstai...

I watched all of Engine in a 24-hour period. I think it's the best J-Drama I've seen so far -- the acting was so good, and the plot was really believable. (One of the things I like about J-Drama is that the plots are sometimes so completely over the top, but it was great to see one that never made m...

I haven't seen any of these, but I'll keep an eye out for you. I'm trying to find a couple of 90s vintage dramas that I really enjoyed at the time -- Kira Kira Hikaru and Three Grown Men. Anyone have any pointers on those? Oh I have Kira Kira Hikaru including the drama special in real media format....

Hi, I'm Meredith, and at 40 I think I'm probably much older than most of you. I've been into Asian dramas for a few years now. I was living in the San Francisco area at the time, where we not only got the International Channel on cable, but also had our own local Asian-language cable channel. My Kor...

Re: Looking for some old J-dramas - - please help?

Someone mentioned Kira kira hikaru: I think(????) I have that tape somewhere too, but even if I could find it, uploading it would be a problem since its not on dvd, obviously. I 'll look anyway and hopefully its still in good shape. If you do find the VHS, I can help converting it to digital. That ...

nice guys really do finish last, everyone will just treat such people like buddies and not want to get into a relationship with them. even if you're outgoing, humourous, family minded, or throw in any "nice" quality in here, people will just go for the so-called bad boy - possesive, abusive, angry,...

Assuming we're talking about how I want a *boyfriend* to treat me... I want him to treat me like I'm his best friend. I prefer a relationship that's an equal partnership, based on mutual respect and the knowledge that we can depend on each other. If we're not 'together' yet, I want him to show me he...
