It seems you like the bad stuff, in that case watch Paradise Ranch, another actress teamed with an "Idol Actor", pure garbage, but takes place on beautiful Jeju Island. The island is nice. The oonly thing nice about this drama. This drama came in under the radar, BECAUSE IT SUNK!!

haruma, You mean they are good according to YOU. that is not an easy task. You maybe are new to this, while many of us have been watching for a few years or more. Try watching a drama with actors not singers out of KPOP or JPOP who are cute to lure in kids that care more about looks than acting. JDr...

I leave for 5 days to go camping and fishing and all kinds of things happen. 1. Has anyone taken in account that the only one who has been married of the three is Pill Bug? My brother got divorced and he said "that is it for me, once burned is enough". I think Pill bug is not so timid, he has been t...

You are so right SSpiegel. Somewhere in D-Addicts someone said that they did NOT like JDrama because it was too moralistic. They should read this discussion and maybe they would understand why it is needed. There was a great quote at the end of the KDrama "Fugitive Plan-B" "Desire creates a future, ...

OK everyone should know my stance on this topic from previous submissions. I just find it funny that upon opening up Yahoo, I see this to put before this group. I think it pertains to what we are all talking about. 9 things guys say should never be fake about you 6. What goals you’d like to achieve ...

I agree counsel05 this theme has played out in some other great JDramas: Kimi wa Petto and Nodame Cantible each has the overachiever needing what is at first perceived as an underachiever, but is in reality a catalyst to a better life. Happiness. It still would have been fun to watch Wakaba and Shin...

Shindou wants money and a trophy wife, he has not shown one second of caring for anyone but Shindou. Wakaba will grow much more being married to Pill-Bug. She can help him grow away from wishy-washy and he can, or already has, helped her grow into a real person. Imagine a child from Shindou and Waka...

New Idea. Shindou becomes Mom's lawyer and Wakaba is Pill-Bug's lawyer, the battle lines are drawn and Pitaro goes to the winner. Shindou shows everyone how cold and mean he actually is, he has to become the "bad guy" in this drama. Add to this people, we could turn this into a 20 episode KDrama rea...

Shindou is history, he doesn't stand a chance against a sad-eyed guy and a cute kid, "nola contendre" (no contest). Emma-ba, you make a good point about Wakaba ending up running the law firm. How about this, they become partners (Shoko & Wakaba), Shindou takes off for greener pastures and Pill-bug a...

There are 4-5 episodes left, I think, and why did Wakaba have to be a lawyer? Now that Mom has returned out of the blue, she will want to take Pitaro back with her to NY. Pill Bug will go running (sadly) to Wakaba asking for legal advice and help. Wakaba will understand that losing or having family ...

Hey Seirin chill out. It is only a drama. Count to ten and take a deep breath. Do not say the whole crew hates her, you have no clue what the crew likes or dislikes. Hell, some may admire her for standing up to the slave tactics of the producers. So relax and do NOT put words into their mouths. I th...

OK, call me a sucker for a pretty woman, but also in her defense is the fact that she is the star (sorry Eric) and the camera does not leave her very much. She is either with Eric or with the North Korean spies, but it is mainly her. Yes there is the manuscript subplot, but that has been few and far...
