For some reason I didn't really like Code Blue season 1, so I didn't really bother with season 2.

My current watch list:
- Shinzanmono
- Sunao ni Narenakute
- General Rouge no Gaisen (Team Batista no Eiko 2)
- Hitsudan Hostess...a SP by Kitagawa Keiko, really really nice story line. You can either download it thru D-Addicts or watch it thru DramaCrazy.

Still waiting for the HIGHLY anticipated Tsuki no Koibito

just finished watching the first episode of JIN, and i gotta say, this one's looking like it's going to be a reeeally good one. Smile
i like the story so far, the concept is interesting and the acting and directing is good. no wonder it won almost all the TV Drama Academy Awards for its time period, only losing Best Actress to Shida Mirai in Shokojo Seira, who deserved it, i think, but then again JIN doesn't have any main female actress. the closest one to it, Ayase Haruka (and man, does she look good in this one Love) got the Best Supporting Actress award. Smile

it's quiet here. Tongue

finished Hitonatsu no Papa e and JIN. they both left me a bit... wanting more. though not in the sense of that they were so good that i like neeeed another season (at least not for HnPe). HnPe kinda finished on a note where nothing really special happened, and i just felt like they could've made more out of it, especially since the last episode had 12 minutes (!!! :O) of recap in the beginning before the story continued. as for JIN, i wasn't really sure about some things in the end, just slightly confused. heh.
i recommend JIN (finished it in one day), HnPe not so much, though it had it's moments, and of course... it's full of Uetty. the version i watched was also pretty crappy quality with somewhat badly timed subs. trans was okay though, most of the time.

i started watching Cinderella's Sister last week after a friend of mine recommended it. i shouldn't have listened to him... 'cause now i'm stuck at ep 14 and have to wait three weeks for the rest 6 episodes! Laughing
been a while since i watched a drama where i feel so unsure what to feel about the main characters. sometimes you wanna just slap them for being so.. emotionally unsure that they act stupid and cold and sometimes you just feel so sorry for them you wanna comfort them. so far an excellent story. actually, for the ones i've watched, k-dramas seem to be more complex than j-dramas. i like that.

I finally finished "Gokusen" and I enjoyed it a lot. Now I'm watching season 2, just finished the first episode yesterday. Unfortunately I think that I won't enjoy it as much as the first season. I miss all the students from 3-D and the unique Shirokin teachers Crying.

^ hmm... i didn't really get into Gokusen, only watched 2 episodes, but i have all 3 seasons and will probably watch them sometime.

right now, waiting for the rest of the episodes of Cinderella's Sister, i've actually (funny enough) started watching Cinderella Man. Laughing
actually, i didn't know it was a drama when i downloaded it, just looking for videos with SNSD. Yoona is one of the protagonists in it, and she's doing a pretty good job so far. Smile

finished both Cinderella Man and Sister, both were really good, especially CS Smile (i guess i'm a bit biased to like CM since it's got Yoona, Tongue but i really liked the story too).
CS had some things and actions that were a bit weird, but most of them were, if not usual, at least rational due to the characters'... uh... characters (which are quite unusual). Laughing and situations. recommended if you feel like watching a somewhat dark drama with quite a bunch of sad stuff in it.
i wouldn't say either of the stories are close at all to the original Cinderella story. just slightly. mostly CS, where you can place the different characters in the original story.

also finished watching Hello! Miss (took me only almost a year Laughing), which was good with a fun and sweet plot, and Lee Da Hae. Love however, the story was so alike My Girl that at times it felt really weird, lol, and Lee Da Hae plays the protagonist in that one too. adding to that, i watched it after watching 14 eps of CS, and the set in the dramas are pretty alike with the traditional buildings and whatnot, so felt a bit confusing (not really that much, but yeah...). and now the guy in H!M is in the drama i'm watching now...

which is You Are My Destiny! Giggle more Yoona! Love Laughing
can't say much yet after only watching 6 of 178 episodes, but seems good so far. Smile

what you said was so true. and the story is complex in terms of emotion. :X

I'm at episode 6. and so far im lost because I couldnt fully grasp why the main girl was full of hatred? The new dad was kind, and the younger sister was sweet to her too. Please enlighten me? hahaa.

But yeah so far the story made me cry so many times. I like the main actress <3 she acted in little bride movie too!

Anyway what made you continue/finish watching this k-drama?

^ she doesn't want to get close to people because she's been let down by families her mother has brought her to so many times before, and she doesn't want to get hurt. i know it's a bit extreme, but she seems to see the bad side in everyone, and her mom is even worse, whereas the younger sister is the complete opposite. but things change as the story goes on.
what made me continue was that i really liked the story, and at most times i had no idea what would happen next, it wasn't very predictable at all (except a bit towards the end when things had to be wrapped up).

oh, and yeah, i definitely wanna see Moon Geun Young in more stuff. is My Little Bride good? i really want to see A Tale of Two Sisters at least. Smile

Yes, My Little Bride is very cute and sweet. you'll get to see her funny side, and she's so young then!

Ah yes I agree that Cinderella's Stepsister is unpredictable, and it doesnt really contain cliches (at least for the first few episodes that I've watched)

Okay I'm gonna try going back to the drama XD

Have you watched You're Beautiful? It contains fan service here and there but the story is sweet.

Looking forward to watching this drama, preview from the Daily Yomiuri ....

Another question: Is it worth staying up past midnight for a Japanese lesson? Nihonjin no Shiranai Nihongo (11:58 a.m.-12:38 a.m., starting July 15 on NTV) just might be worth the late-night effort. Haruko (Riisa Naka) is unsuccessful in her search for a Japanese teaching position at a high school, but her professor promises to help her if she first takes on a three-month assignment at a Japanese language school. The place is populated by a ninja-loving Swede, an anime-loving Italian and a cast of expat characters full of language questions Haruko can't answer. It's based on a million-selling manga--but what continuing series isn't based on a manga anymore? At least eight of the new summer series are dramanga. Who needs creators of original screenplays when there are a gazillion manga to be exploited?

Finished watching Untouchable last week, (Yukie Nakama), reasonably enjoyable storyline, though the unpredictability was too predictable if you know what I mean. Yukie was good as always, and I much prefer seeing her in a role like this rather than another Gokusen Shifty

Im excited for this second season too!! I love the first season of Hotaru no Hikari. So far the story is really good and hilarious. I like the idea of another guy(Seno) liking her!
