If the main character could be an architect rather than an engineer, Kekkon Dekinai Ototko might be what you are looking for. Episode one ends with the humiliating anal probe by the attractive female doctor.

Kira Kira Hikaru was one of the older dramas that Avallac'h recruited a transcriber for, so the raws (DVD?) and soft subs are both available here on d-addicts. It has been a few years now, so you may need to ask for seeders.

and since the bottle only says pop-i, here is a screen shot of the sponsors, which features the orange bottle. I don't read Japanese, so don't know if the text has anything to do with the bottle.

Thanks for those links, Keiko, very interesting. There was one photo on the meijishowa site that looked like a scene from Jin, the place he used to sit and look over the city.

I agree with Gir; that's why I haven voted in the last several rounds. In this batch, I really liked Dance Drill (but partly because I was amused by the fact that one character was nearly a head taller than the others, but no one ever commented on it; and was she the one who had to use a crutch that...

The wiki description doesn't indicate how funny it is, though: so corporate shenanigans, the usual Kdrama love quadrangle, but lots and lots of laughs. The trailer is quite amusing too, perhaps even more so after you've see some episodes.

This drama felt as though it were based on a novel, and some of the story got trimmed. I kept waiting for more about Rio, but was left with hints rather than the complete explanation. Although he told Saki that he loved her, it felt more like he was the one who really understood how dangerous she wa...

I'm late to this discussion, but after watching the first 4 episodes, I have mixed feelings. These events really happened, and forcing them all onto one family and getting details wrong sort of takes away the reality. The Japanese audience probably won't pick up on the inaccuracies, but it is drivin...

Well, it looks like Top Sales is going to lose the poll again this time, which means it cannot be nominated again according to the rules.

There seemed to be a lot of loose ends at the finish of this drama -- or was I just not paying enough attention? Why did she go back to N Y at the end?

Try Dramabeans.com. It has current drama news, episode recaps, and very enthusiastic discussion of Korean dramas. It is a good place to get ideas for which drama to watch next.
