What shall we call it? "Singles rant thread"? I forget what it was called in Japanese, and can't check since I'm at school now.

OMG.. haha.. this drama is hilarious! Just watched the first episode. So good that I completely forgot that I have a HUUUUUGE project that I'm probably going to have to stay up finishing. :cry:

Kind of makes me wish there was a singles forum here on D-A. :mrgreen:

I took a look at his agent's website, and I don't think he's been in any photobooks. I only see movies, dramas and CMs. http://www.infini-inc.net/infiniFiles/mem_File/ky_main.html You can always blow some cash on his movies from www.yesasia.com though. Unless you have them already. :-) Also, here's ...

Oh, and a question to tUrtleAE86, what is JDICT? I'm just completely noob with this stuff. :p Oh, it's actually at http://www.jdorama.com :-) Just go to their site, and on the top right hand corner enter what you're searching for, and change the dropdown menu from "Drama" to "JDict" and hit the sea...

I bought the 2nd one, actually. http://www.kodansha-intl.com/books/html/en/4770028555.html It's very thorough, and I like the extensive examples and how it really shows pretty well all the ways to use each kanji. It is a bit cumbersome to look up kanji, though. So, I find it's mostly useful for stud...

Yup, it's Ryoko Hirosue :wub: . She's one of the most adorable J-actresses I've seen. I'm really looking forward to her new drama Slow Dance this season ^^. Ahhh so it is RH after all.. the thought crossed my mind, but I'm so used to seeing ryoko in her kind of boyish look. I can't wait to watch it...

wow, thanks for sharing all the beautiful wallpapers. I'd like to see some more Jdramas' wallpapers, but it's so hard to find any that include the main characters in the show. It seems like most Jdramas' wallpapers only have the scenery as the main focus :unsure: Yeah, I agree completely. :cry: BTW...

First J-Drama: Strawberry on the Shortcake, causing me to fall in love with Uchiyama Rina. :wub: Sucks that she's not in too many dramas... Only seen her in Bus Stop, Moto Kare and SOS. First K-Drama: Loving You. A lot of people don't like Eugene, but I think she's great! I hated the ending of this ...
