Series of the Week - 07/19/2004: Younger Men

Post by thetenken » Jul 5th, '04, 19:07

PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE POST. IF YOU DO NOT, YOU MAY BE LIABLE TO MY EXPRESSIONS OF DISPLEASURE.

06/14/2004: As of this date, the Series of the Week is now officially Japanese series only.

Taking nominations for the next series of the week. Let me know what you want to add to the poll and I'll add it. From this point forward only series that have a volunteer seeder will be put up into the poll. People can nominate whatever they want, but the series won't become a poll option until there is a volunteer seeder...

PLEASE NOMINATE AND VOTE ONLY FOR THE DRAMAS OFF THE COMPLETED DRAMAS LIST:
http://www.d-addicts.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3500

Last time's runner-ups:

Younger Men - http://www.jdorama.com/viewtopic_3702.htm and http://www.kikutv.com/shows/younger_men/index.html

Others:

Food Fight - http://jdorama.com/drama_487.htm

Previous Series of the Week:

Oyaji
Otousan
Attic Cat
Koi ga Shitai x3 (Where is Love?)
Strawberry on the Shortcake (S.O.S.)
Cheap Love
Big Wing
Hotman
Sutaa no Koi
From the Heart
Love Generation
A Sleeping Forest

What is a series of the week?
Since there are now a substantial number of torrents on this site, we have implemented a "Series of the Week," where we could dedicate most of the bandwidth to a particular series during that week. This helps in a couple of ways:

1. People will know what series are available and have seeds, rather than just waiting and hoping for them to be seeded at some later date.

2. For those seeders who have DVD burners and have already burnt their collections to DVD/CD, then with the series of the week they know which series can be pulled off of DVD to help seed, minimizing troublesome multiple DVD loading.

3. Constantly re-circulates older torrents back into view, and focuses bandwidth and demand toward those specific torrents, rather than having people request series across the board.

Remember, D-Addicts was started for the community, and being a part of the community means sharing. If you don't share, then everyone loses (refer to JEM's dropping of Cdramas), and a good thing open to all may become a private party.

I take no responsibility for deleting poll entries if there are no seeds. No complaints, as this is a community effort. If the community doesn't want to share, then you're SOL.

I have all the previous ones except Cheap Love, so I vote for that one!!!!

I can seed any of the others if they're chosen, except food fight. Sorry, but that series just really sucked to me for some reason. Others might like it though...

I can also help seed Itsumo Futari De, Yanpapa (Young Father), My Husband, and a few others if we're doing jem torrents.
I am not obsessed. I am just very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very focussed...

You are correct. I don't know how that link got in there, but I guess that shows how popular that link is, when no one comments on it till now. =/

You don't actually SEE Kimutaku, he just provides the voice for the bird.

What! Surely you don't mean to imply that THE Crow doesn't do his own voice acting? He must be the most handsomest crow in all existence. And if looks aren't enough, a bird with enough talent to impersonate KimuTaku ... well a bird like that has got prospects, I'm tellin ya.

I wonder why I haven't seen him in any other shows?

LOL. So is that bird a crow? I assumed because it could talk that it was a myna bird, but oh wel... if it's Food Fight, I'd be glad to assist in seeding, although as usual I can't keep my computer on 24/7. :)

Haha. Somehow I don't think this is the kind of "volunteer" that thetenken had in mind (otherwise we would have lots of "volunteers" for every drama). Very nice of you though. Just make sure you upload at least as many bits as you download. If you want to be generous, then wait until you have reached a 4:1 or higher ratio.

Food fight must be one of my least favorite dramas. I could not find any redeeming quailties, and I am about as much of a Fukada fan as it is possible to be. I hope that one does not win.

Yup, Jerry, Takuya, and Kim Rae Won are faves...I think it's because if you put a pair of dark shades on the three of them, it's difficult to tell them apart LOL.

haha. :D well, they didn't choose them for their acting skills (or singing skills for that matter.)
and as for how they talk...well, i'm not sure what you mean exactly. do you mean accent or words? anyways, the accent's all over the board since they're from different backgrounds (not to mention that one is from the same background as you). how do i know? haha, yes, i watched and enjoyed MG despite the bad acting. :lol

ok, back on topic. i'm gathering from previous posts that there's a talking bird in "food fight"? granted i haven't watched it yet, so i can't really judge, but i'd pick older woman/younger man over a talking bird any day. :)

I am a fangirl of many things and many people, but F4 is definitely not one of them! When compared to other Asian hotties who can actually act convincingly, I've become continually turned off by F4's "I'm-so-cool" attitude, which actually makes them have the "I'm-so-gay" look instead. >_______< I know one of them can somewhat sing, but I still don't think any of Flower 4 is even remotely good looking. Sorry fangirlies.. this is one obsession that I'll pass over gladly.

On another note, I'm glad to see Younger Men is finally winning! :D

actually, i'd have to agree with iceberri's assessment of F4. when i mentioned that they weren't picked for their acting or singing skills, i didn't mean that they were picked for their looks. (i heard they were picked for height, btw. :) ) anyways, even though i did enjoy the drama i wouldn't consider myself a F4 fan. this is off topic, but what is the definition of "fangirl"? is it just a female drama/movie fan? or is it more than that? it seems like the SOTW thread always contains references to fangirls. and are there "fanguys"? just curious. :roll

anyways, on topic: i'm very glad that younger men is winning even though i'll have to get off my technologically-challenged butt to figure out how to play the files. but it'll be worth it! :D

WAY off topic: @animetama - who is the third guy from the left in your signature? i think it's the only face i don't recognize, but he looks kinda familiar. :)

Going off-topic again, but I just couldn't leave this alone >_<

None at all, not even 1 of the F4 as goodlooking??
/gasps in horror :pale:

Let's see.. I'll do pictorially..

Here is Jerry.. definately a hottie.
Image

And here is a full length shot.. hot bod and all..
Image

Let's compare Jerry to Takuya (who's a hottie)
Image

And compare Jerry and Takuya to WonBin (who's also a hottie)
Image

If I didn't know any better, they could pass for fraternal triplets at least :P

Ok, now I feel the world's alright again^^

Doh!
You beat me in posting.. hehe

In my sig, left - right : Takuya, Tomoya, Hideaki, Jerry, Woo, Bin =)

Actually, they were all fresh faces.. Jerry was a model and Vic was a student.
It was a combination of their looks resembling the manga 'Hana Yori Dango' and their mannerisms.
Vic's especially looks like Hanazawa Rui in the Manga.

Fan-girl/boy = fanatical fan girl/boy of whoever they like..
Usually, buying everything the artist/s churns out, going to their concerts, chasing them around.. etc..

Sorry for going off-topic again >_<
/shuts up now..

On-topic: I'm glad Younger Men is winning too! :w00t:

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :lol :lol :lol Besides the fact that I generally don't watch Chinese shows/movies and don't pay attention to their idols (except Kaneshiro Takeshi, if he counts), I never understood the while F4 fanbase and attraction. I did watch Meteor Garden and I did love it, but I was familiar w/ the story already, so seeing it in live action alone was fun. I only know two of their real names and I only know one of the character names from Meteor Garden, so I can only refer to specific ones very vaguely. :lol

I don't think they can really act well, but that went for almost everyone in the show although I got a huge kick out of the girl's parents. To me, F4 are just...there. Their singing doesn't own me either. Maybe one of them can sorta sing alright, but that doesn't help me.

Time for me to get shallow and pick on looks! Sorry F4 fans! :roll
As for their looks.......um, the ABC guy Vanness or whoever, I find him replusive, to put it bluntly. Jerry, I actually think he has some potential in the looks department. Maybe not dropdead gorgeous, but he's not too bad compared to the rest of them. :lol Given the right hair I guess, LOL, his hair in MG was pretty weird for me, both the bandana-pineapple thing and just down. :blink :lol And the clothes...oh GAWD. That pic animetama posted of Jerry was actually pretty nice!! But I've also seen pics of him that were kinda...mreh. The one who played Lei, I don't see the attraction at all. And the last one, I forget what he looks like so I figure it wasn't that great, hehehe. I don't remember saying "He's ugly" so maybe he was average :lol I forget... :P

:offtopic: I'm off topic but i must tell something about F4 because i'm feeling so guilty to begin a discussion about F4 that i just didn't mean it.
First, animetama, thanks for your welcoming. I like so much your photo-signature :P And, yes, Jerry is the hottiest having a perfect body :wub: Takuya... is pretty good (much better, of course) on acting and hottie too :mrgreen:
thetenken,iceberri F4 have a low skill on acting, I agree. But in MG they have the best story based on a japanese manga and then, Jerry Yan only must just.... stay... kissing, hugging or looking at Barbie Xu, that's enough. Story-line goes on itself because is very exciting and moving and it always get you on an expectation. I like the manga and anime based, but i love the drama because i like much more drama than anime. F4 are bad on acting? Who cares? MG keeps still being so much exciting because of the story, though. Besides, Barbie Xu is good on acting, I think. Perphaps, F4 had successed because of the manga-based story they use to use on their series. Jerry is a perfect Dau Ming Sz on MG because actually the caharater he plays is a fool and childish boy and the bad acting match :D
Funny talking? I can't understand anything :glare: But to me, Jerry sounds so sweet to make me feel the words .
habukie I also enjoy so much MG despite the bad acting. I think the director put enough romantic and exciting scenes to make the bad acting be on a second place.
Jerry Yan has a bad acting, ok, but he has the gift to make the key scenes of the story so good than the other bad scenes are forggotten :wub:

neonkinpatsu I think Jerry and Vic are so handsome and having perfect bodies. And they are no the only ones in China, of course. Jerry has pretty eyes :wub:

damn, whats wrong with a lover that's a little older? although I'm a young man and I wouldn't want to sleep with 45 to 50 year olds, but I don't see the big issue some people (not you in particular) are having with the drama and topic..love has no boundarys! *cough*

the drama isn't great but it IMO has a nice opening song..food fight isn't all that great either..

I think this is more than the 3rd time =)

As for F4...

Well, maybe I'm just biased against the way that young Taiwanese speak these days. The way they phrase their words and add the ole "la" at the end of their sentences really makes me go a little crazy. =)

I think it might be a little bit of culture shock, since I grew up speaking with older generation and second generation Taiwanese Americans who didn't sound like that. I also primarily watched Wuxia movies and TV series, and they didn't speak like that either. Oh, I can't even imagine someone like Jerry Yan playing in any serious costume drama!

Anyway, besides their speaking habits, I found F4 to be positively horrible actors with zero abilities to convey emotional expressions. Even ole KimuTaku can do that. Some people think it's F4's 'cool way' of acting, but I think it's just lack of talent. =)

Finally, the girl couldn't really act, either. I preferred Hana Yori Dango to Meteor Garden. It was all good that they decided to find completely fresh faces to represent Taiwanese youth culture, but I just couldn't feel it. Maybe if I had grown up in Taiwan it might have been the greatest thing since sliced bread.

I won't really comment on their looks. My mom is also an F4 fangirl. I've decided that she can't say no to a pretty face.

WRT younger men, Fubuki Jun is indeed tough to watch in a "romantic" scene, but let us not forget that there are not just one but two hot babes in this dorama. Inamori Izumi is definitely cute. I think she beats a lot of very popular younger j-actresses who shall go unnamed. She also looks more Japanese than Gojira. And Hoshino Mari would easily make it onto my "would marry on first sight" list. They have rather significant parts in the drama. Just seek past any Fubuki Jun love scenes and you have a drama with plenty o' female eye candy.And the theme song is pretty good too.

As far as this drama finally winning, "divide and conquer" I guess. But is there really anyone interested in this series who hasn't downloaded it yet? I think we must really be scraping the bottom here. I'm just glad Food Fight isn't winning. I voted for "other" since I haven't seen that one yet.

perhaps not for this sotw, but for the next sotw ......

in the ksotw, it sounded like jem gave his permission to d-addicts (not for the posting of torrents, but to have his torrents nominated in sotw).

although it's not a torrent that was posted on d-addicts....

i'd like to nominate WATERBOYS [jem]. i've heard that it's an excellent drama. in the past few days, i've seen several threads pop up concerning waterboys, and there was an announcement that waterboys2 came out. according to the threads i've read, a few people have completed the series, and they sound willing to assist in seeding.

since jem does not have a forum, i thought i'd see if it would be possible for waterboys to be nominated. just a suggestion.

thanks!

Sorry neefo, Younger Men has been on the voter's block over a few months now, so I was just carrying over seeds week to week. I guess you probably volunteered way back (2 months ago?) and now finally Younger Men wins.

Just burn as SVCD. It's about time length, not size.

Series of the week actually lasts for 2 weeks. The first week is to get all the files out so that everyone has the opportunity to grab it. The second week is normally used for people to catch up if they fell behind or started late. And even after that, I know many sotws have had seeds for the following 3-4 weeks afterwards.... so I wouldn't worry about it too much. :)
