Here's a stat for you... 4.6-percent unemployment rate in April 2006(1). So based on your logic here, although 4.6-percent of...

The question asked here doesn't give enough options for the many replies that you can have. For starters, you are all assuming (just like the media and even American politicians do) that most illegal immigrants are here because they've snuck in from a border or something. Almost HALF (that's 50%) of...

I think that we have to first realize Hamasaki Ayumi is the artist singing. Not the artist directing the cinematography. She is not the Video Director.

Kdramas usually have a bad ending nowadays because someone MUST die for the story to be complete. Death is an all too easy way for the writer and director to get emotion out of the viewers. It's the poor writer's panacea. Koreans rarely find anything besides death to produce viewers' empathy for the...

Having watch episode 10 of Gokusen 2, I think that I can definitely say the original Gokusen was better. The last 3 episodes of Gokusen 2 seemed to be missing SOMETHING--perhaps comically, that the original Gokusen had plenty of. Also, Kumiko's love interest in Gokusen 2 was a big let-down. :(
