Dramas Recommended for Middle-Aged Women?

Hello all. =]

Can anyone recommend good dramas for the older, middle-aged audience? Preferably Japanese dramas, but Korean dramas are fine.

Please and thank you. <3

Hi all

Hi Zu.

I'm also interested in Japanese dramas too. Would also like some ideas as to which ones they would recommend we watch.

What type of dramas do you like Zu?

I like good comedy, romance, and horror dramas or movies.

I reccomend Beautiful Life..with Kimura Takuya and Tokiwa Takako. It's always been one of my favourites. Also, Aishiteru to Itte kure is good. That has Tokiwa Takako in it too. Enjoy!

I'm not sure if the following dramas have English subtitles, but I'd recommend Jigoku no Sata mo Yome Shidai. It uses the typical Japanese mother-in-law vs daughter genre.

http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Jigoku_no_Sata_mo_Yome_Shidai

Another good one is Hanayome wa Yakudoshi, which is about a women reporter who goes undercover by pretending to be the fiance of a man who was raised on a farm. Mother-in-law from hell in this one, too.

Jukunen Rikon.
Really, really good drama that appeals to a more mature audience and discusses a theme (divorce after retirement) that middle-aged or older couples in Japan face.

Hi

Thank you guys for all the wonderful info on what dramas to watch. I'm going to get started on them right now.

Alone In Love seemed targeted at an older audience than most KDramas I've seen.

Rosemary

One dorama that I really enjoyed was Karei-naru Ichizoku.
http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Karei-naru_Ichizoku
Personally I think it's the best drama I have seen out of all the korean, japanese, or taiwainese dramas I have watched. The storyline is well developed and Kimura Takuya does an excellent job portraying his character.
S-projects did the subbing for this series, but their site is no longer up. You can dl the subs from here instead

I am looking for unique comedy.

I am not sure what type of comedy it is, but it's filled with oddball characters or hilarious character/situation. Prefer those that have involved more than just two people, character development or friendship and/or sense of family being developed.

I want something like those I have seen.

Akihabara@DEEP
Ikebukuro West Gate Park
Kisarazu Cat's Eye
KO One
Bad Family
Evasive Inquiry Agency
Yukan Club
Hong Gil Dong

I am not looking for romantic comedy since it's easy to find but if the show ending up have it like Hong Gil Dong or Evasive Inquiry Agency then it's fine. I am just looking for weird yet hilarious story/character.

It's so hard to find more.

Hope what I am asking make sense?

I don't want sad ending and as actress from Evasive Inquiry Agency put it the best, a show for us to relax and enjoy.

Thanks in advance.

best new drama?

K-drama:
1. Coffee Prince (Really can't get enough of this drama)
2. Sweet 18 (Found myself smiling through every episode)
3. Lovers (um, wow)
4. My Lovely Sam Soon
5. Capital Scandal (Sooo hilarious and yet serious at the same time)
The ones that were oh so close to making the list: Goong, Full House, Wonderful Life, My Girl, Sassy Girl Choon Hyang, The Vineyard Man

J-drama:
1. Densha Otoko (First drama ever, got me addicted)
2. 1 Liter of Tears (If I were to recommend one drama everyone should watch, it would be this one)
3. Hotaru no Hikari (I just can't not like this drama)
4. Proposal Daisakusen (I thought it would be repetitive and boring but I was sooooo wrong, and the ending song is reaaaally good hahaha)
5. Kisarazu Cat's Eye (Oh man, soooo funny)
Wow, had a really hard time with the J-dramas. The ones that didn't make it but so deserve to be there, (Anything with Kimura Takuya), Koi Ni Ochitara, Kekkon Dekinai Otoko, Kurosagi, Orange Days, Jikou Keisatsu (want laughs, watch this), Ikebukuro West Gate Park (has the comedy and the seriousness), Nodame Cantabile (can't believe this one is not up there), Bara no Nai Hanaya, GTO, Gokusen, My Boss My Hero (Also watch this for laughs)

TW-drama:
Only seen Romantic Princess which was pretty good and then half of Devil Beside You. The acting just got too annoying. Hopefully will start watching TW-dramas again. Keep hearing My Lucky Star is good so maybe I'll start with that.

Teacher/Student Dramas....

Rookies.

I'm currently watching the first episode. My first impression is, the storyline's been done before and done much better and more effectively, but I'll watch a few more episodes. If I don't get suck in by the storyline, I'll probably not finish it.

ROOKIES is definitely my favorite drama this season. Worth giving it a try and see at least.

Also Dragon Zakura.

I think I've OD on 4 sided triangles I can't watch anymore, I'm all burned out! Someone please recommend something that isn't boy meets girl, boy has psycho ex-girlfriend and girl fails to notice boy she considers a friend is crazy about her and/or turns out to be just plain crazy.

I need a change of pace. I like romance with comedy as long as it's not too slapstick and I could even live with a triangle as long as its not a psycho third party.

Hotaru no Hikari I think would fit. Kekkon Dekinai Otoko I think might fit though there is only a slight show of romance. Hope that helps.

Only one series comes to mind: Mixed-Up Investigative Agency (also known as Evasive Inquiry Agency). Probably the only Korean drama that doesn't revolve around the romance theme, and it's fantastic!

These are all the dramas I've watched so far and my personal ratings (out of 10) for them:

J-dramas:

A Million Stars Falling From the Sky --- 8.5
- It's angsty, addictive and KimuTaku is great as always

Beautiful Life --- 8.5
- A real tearjerker and does well portraying the life of disabled people

Hana Yori Dango --- 8.0
- The only fluff worth watching imo. I fell in love with MatsuJun after watching this

Hana Yori Dango --- 7.0
- Nowhere near as good as the first. I just watched it in case anything major happened (which didn't)

Kimi wa Petto --- 8.5
- Maybe it's cause I love the manga so I loved this too. In any case, it was different and refreshing to see an older female lead, and the relationship between Sumire and Momo is interesting and well explored

Long Vacation --- 9.0
- I admit this is not everyone's cup of tea. It's very nineties indeed, and the female lead seems to grate on some people. However, I love it because I think it captures the relationship between the leads so very well. My personal fave

Summer Snow --- 8.0
- Another tearjerker which I watched a long time ago (I remember not crying lol). It was pretty good but I thought it lacked real substance

Orange Days --- 8.5
- A drama that really rang true for me. I felt it portrayed college life very accurately, and the relationships were interesting and the storyline not too contrived. What I would have liked is more focus on Shohei and Akane, but hey we can't have it all ^^

J-dramas I have not yet finished watching:

Hana-Kimi --- 6.0
- Very meh. I found it too boring, silly and contrived to continue watching, even with Shun in it =(

Koukou Kyoushi --- 7.5
- Looks promising indeed. Will continue watching

A Litre of Tears --- 7.0
- Looks like another tearjerker. I think I'll leave this till when I'm in the mood to be thoroughly depressed

Nobuta wo Produce --- 7.5
- A bit off the wall but looks fun

Nodame Cantabile --- 8.5
- Very funny but I won't watch the rest till I've finished the manga


K-dramas:

Dal Ja's Spring --- 8.5
- I loved this drama. Again, the lead character is an older woman with relationship problems. It doesn't take itself too seriously, and is just very heart-warming and funny

Damo --- 9.0
- One of my faves. It's not overly long and the storyline is sophisticated and interesting. The acting is superb and the locations used are quite simply amazing

Full House --- 7.5
- Gets a bit tedious but is generally better than most romance k-dramas. Pretty funny (especially Rain's clothes XD)

Goong --- 8.0
- Quite good. I have a few gripes though, the main one being that it is TOO long. The scenes with the old people are sleep-inducing, honestly.

Love Letter --- 7.5
- The music is this drama's saving grace. Without it this would be another tedious, drawn-out angst-fest

My Girl --- 8.5
- In general this drama was a success. Despite the storyline the characters were not too two-dimensional, and the acting was great (especially the female lead, I forgot her name). Few annoyances with some minor characters but otherwise good

K-dramas I have not finished watching:

Thank You --- 7.5
- First episode was a tad confusing but i think I'll persevere with this one as I have a weakness for stories about single mothers

I'm Sorry I Love You --- 7.5
- Looked promising but I'm told this is very sad so I may stall this one

Seo Dong Yo --- 7.5
- Looked really good but the subs were awful so I'm waiting for better ones


TW-dramas:

Corner With Love --- 8.0
- Pretty funny but quite predictable and cliched. Annoying supporting characters. In fact, most of the characters are annoying lol

Hana-Kimi --- 7.5
- Pretty funny again but Ella's acting is OTT and there is WAY too much use of interior monologuing. Seriously

Mars --- 9.0
- Another of my faves. The story is interesting (well, it is Japanese) and Barbie and Vic are absolutely brilliant. I wish everyone could watch this

My Lucky Star --- 8.0
- Pretty ok. Jimmy Lin is far too girly for my liking though, and his dad is too stereotypically strict and inflexible. The Ou Ya Rou subplot is pretty tiresome too. Otherwise, the drama has good points (mostly cause later it involves the female lead becoming a single mum ^^)

Silence --- 9.0
- Probably my favourite drama. It is... beautiful. Yes, ok, the coincidences and agonising just-missed-them moments get quite silly, but the emotion of the performances supercedes them. Vic is at his best here. One that everyone needs to watch

Smiling Pasta --- 7.5
- Rather tiresome and VERY juvenile. I don't really know why I watched it to the end. It didn't have many good points except for maybe the music

TW-dramas I have not yet finished watching:

Bump Off Lover --- 7.5
- Looks interesting but I do not like Angela Zhang at all. She looks like a little girl she's so thin and small. But it's a good job she does acting out two very different people

A Game About Love --- 7.0
- First episode was quite unremarkable. I like the idea of dancing though so I may continue

Tokyo Juliet --- 7.0
- Bleh. I can't stand Ariel Lin's acting. Probably won't be able to bring myself to watch the rest

Chinese Paladin --- 7.5
- SFX overused but otherwise looked pretty fun. Might continue watching

Meteor Garden --- 7.5
- Can't really be bothered to watch this since I already watched HYD. Didn't look too bad except that F4's clothes are horrific lol. Also the available videos are very bad quality


Well I think that's all. I hope it helps some.

I am in need of something cute, fun, and light. Something like Full House, My Girl, or Devil Beside You. A drama that doesn't require much thought to watch; I can just sit back and get addicted. Sizzling chemistry between the leads is a must!

Right now, the only possibly cute dramas I have on my 'To Watch' list are Hana Kimi, Nodame Cantabile, and Super Rookie. I'm already an avid Kdrama watcher so if someone could recommend to me some Jdoramas or Twdramas that match my criteria, that would be fantastic.

I am searching for some dramas that are considering youth, younger adults [ teen to 25 , you know what I mean, atlhough I am over 20, (sadly:) ]
It should be also kind of fast-paced, no soap operas, and I would reaaly appreciate comedy-romantic-whatever genre. Simply no dying, no diseases, no grandparents as primary characters etc.. :))
I have already watched these dramas Coffee Prince ( which was great btw ),
also first three episodes of Im your SAM ( hard to get another episodes with subs though ),
Delightful Girl ... ( which was great at beginning, but later got really corny ),
and now Im watching "So I`m not handsome" which I find very entertaining.
and only 2-3 others like Single Papa(OH GOD!)

So once again, Im looking for something funny, regarding to teens, or college whatever :) and without all those parents, grandparents, babies, deaths, "how-to-get-with-our-family-budget" themes etc

many thanks if somebody would help me would be great :) btw I stayed at dramawiki for hours just searching myself, only now Im asking for help my mates

Can someone recommend me some "life-changing" dramas, or "life-themed" dramas such as 1 Litre of Tears? :) Or something with meaningful life lessons, and what not.

Hi I'm looking for a decent peroid drama to get into. Romance is a must but it doesn't have to be the central theme.

Age Difference Drama?

by Mizuki1988
Have you perhaps seen a drama that deals with the romance between characters that have a significant age difference? I've already seen Sapuri, Majo no Jouken, Sore wa Totsuzen, Arashi no you ni and Slow Dance, but they are all dramas where the woman is older or more powerful.... Is there a series with the man being older? Like in "Who are you?", for example? (I've already seen that one and loved it... it's just what I'm looking for :P). And I'm looking for dramas where the two end up together or are at least the main characters, not side characters, like in Delightful Girl Choon-Hyang (I mean the Ahjussi :P).

I would be very grateful if someone could tell me if such a story even exists :P
Thanks in advance,
Mizuki

Ai no Uta, but it isn't exactly romantic.

Also, last year's Hatachi no Koibito sounded like a May-November premise, but I haven't seen it so...

Trying to find a good completed drama

I've been having trouble finding a good drama to watch that is completed and subbed in English. I was trying to find a detective series. Any other action series would work too.

Thanks

Detective Conan? It's good! :D I don't know many that are subbed and are dectectiv-y! sorry I'f I'm no help! :)

You could try:

Trick (1, 2, and 3)
Galileo
Mop Girl
Jikou Keisatsu (1 & 2, though the subs for the last half of the second season are pretty dodgy)
Kimi Hannin Janai Yo Ne
Puzzle 2008
Evasive Inquiry Agency
Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo (season 3 - don't know if the others are subbed)

They're all less serious/dark shows, but they do involve solving mysteries, some more than others.
