I'm trying to identify a J-drama. I remember it's about a journalist who gets involved in a political scandal of some sort. He gets some information from a female secretary he gets romantically involved with, a leak about some sensitive issue, and she gets fired. His actions call his journalistic integrity into question I remember, since I think he loses his job too? In any case, the secretary turns against him and testifies in court, so he is arrested and imprisoned while on trial. I remember he also has a wife (who finds out about the affair I think). I don't know how it ends, as I didn't see it all. It struck me at the time as a bit different than other shows, with a more "mature" story and execution (non of the usual shenanigans of J-dramas).

Thanks in advance!

That's Toda Erika. I think it's Reverse, which is a TBS drama.

Hello, pretty desperate to know what this drama from my memory is. Maybe a mystery crime keiji dorama, movie, manga or book even.

What I can recall is there's a high school/college guy who is always getting bullied by a group of male peers (one of them is their parents' boss's son). He always studies at a family restaurant where he got to know a waitress girl. He gifted her a keychain that can record sound. One day, the girl was kidnapped by the group of bullies. The boy (or his mother) has rented an apartment for studying but unknown to him, the group of bullies used the apartment to confine the girl and torture her. The girl jumped out of the window to escape after a few weeks.

These are the part that im not sure of: The boy went to check the apartment and as he was leaving, he witnessed the girl jumping out and died. The bullies pushed the blame to him and escaped scotfree while he was jailed (?). In the end, the detective (or someone) gave him the same keychain the girl had that proved his innocence (she recorded her words: although this is his apartment, he was never here at all.)

Any ideas? ><

Hi guys,

I need help finding this Japanese drama. I only have a vague recollection of it since it's been a few years since I first watched it. It was about these people who would go into this room (I think it was a karaoke room) and watch videos of their lives. I can't remember if the people going into the room were dead or not and were watching videos of their lives leading up to their deaths.

I'd really appreciate it if anyone is able to figure out what drama I'm referring to with the little information I am able to give.


Thanks!

So I was in Japan in April this year and I turned on the tv one night and there was this drama on. I tuned into only the last 5 or 10 minutes but basically this young man and woman were in an inn/hotel place wearing yukata and they were starting to get sort of intimate. But then the man got a phone call or either he changed his mind or something and got up suddenly to change into his business clothes and quickly left her there. I know this is really vague but the male actor WAS SO BEAUTIFUL I need to know who he was. Thank you!! :salut:

It would be good if you could remember more specifically what time it aired, or the day. It would be easier to exclude other dramas then.
Here you can see a list of some of the dramas that aired in April. All times are Japanese, i.e 22:00 (10pm).

So a man in suit knocked out a gorgeous hotel lady and then wrapped her? Then suddenly some men wearing like Sith lords from Star Wars coming close and pulled out a pen sized lightsaber... Just to stab that poor lady to her chest and dies. Now I'm really curious what show is this?

These 3 videos had a thing in common. All women gotten stabbed by a knife.

So I'm not sure if these 3 are in a same show?

And at the 3rd video. Was the woman who got stabbed is Junko from Kagi No Kakatta?

Here the uploader wrote; 火曜サスペンス劇場「白昼の囚人」(1985.7.23放送。主演:田中美佐子、原作:笹沢左保、主題歌:岩崎宏美「25時の愛の歌」)のEDです。

Name is this ; 白昼の囚人

My best guess is between these period drama :
- Jotei Kasuga no Tsubone (1990, directed by Sadao Nakajima)
- Ōoku portrayed by Yuki Matsushita
- Kasuga no Tsubone (1989 NHK Taiga drama) portrayed by Reiko Ōhara

I'm not sure if this was a J-Drama, but I saw it while at hotel in Japan so I can only assume. I don't know the title or anything but I do remember some parts that took place in the episode.

It was the first episode and It played around 3am, so it was one of those late night series. It cuts straight to a woman in bed and it's nighttime. I think she was laying with her boyfriend or husband. When she rolls over to face her partner in bed, he says something that I assume was a request because she immediately reaches for his boxers. The next cut shows her gesturing her head as if she's giving him blow-job while her inner monologue goes off.

The next thing I remember is the same woman being at a school? Looking/waiting for something/someone when she encounters a boy in an arm cast. I can't quite remember if she wrote on the cast, but by the end of the scene they exchanged emails/numbers and parted ways.

They last thing I remember is a scene of this woman cleaning the house or something, when her husband/boyfriend comes home drunk and falls on her trying to initiate something. I think she denied him that night. Idk, it's been over 3.5 months since I've seen it. I was wondering if anyone knew the title of the series. Thank you in Advance.

Hey
I watched a drama that I can’t remember the name of and therefore can’t find it again. It’s about a girl that moves in with 2 guys. One of the guys has erectile dysfunction, but that goes away when he is with the girl.
Does anybody know what the name is?

Okay. I saw this on a streaming service last year and cannot for the life of me remember the name. I believe I saw the second season or the Part 2. Here's what I can recall:

A girl arrives at what appears to be a post-apocalyptic high school seeking to challenge the top fighter in the school. The top fighter has a gang of girls who the first girl has to fight before getting a fight with the best fighter and has to go through each challenge. She finally makes it to the final challenge and loses and that ended the season. I'm sure there was a season before and one after but this was the only one available to watch.

Hi all, great to find such a community! I have been watching Jdramas since the 90s but after getting married recently i stopped due to lack of time. However lately i have been getting back into it and i can't find one of the dramas i used to follow around 2013-2015 i think...it was about a career lady who was tired of the city, she was single and decided to move to the country side. She rented/leased part of a house of a single father who lived with his daughters. She would take the train to work from home and i remember a lot of scenes at the train station. I also remember the house had a nice garden and some sort of romance developed between the single father and the career lady. Can anyone help me identify? thanks!

I need help identifying a Jdrama. It was about a teenage star of Kabuki theater. It was like he was fighting his family tradition, yet also competing against another young, rising star who was sponsored by another family. They both were also competing for the affection of a girl who was attending the first boy’s school. She was a fan of Kabuki. If I remember correctly she lived alone.
