I confess that while I used to watch a lot of jdramas (I watched jdramas before I've seen a single kdrama), I haven't properly followed one in years - jdramas moved away from romance and slice-of-life stories I adored them for and went in for procedurals and kooky comedies, which were very much not my thing.



So when a large number of flisties told me to check out Oguri Shun and Ishihara Satomi's Rich Man Poor Woman, telling me it was actually a romance drama, I was curious (and I love Oguri Shun - he was in my first ever jdrama) but very cautious. Luckily, I was wrong and it is v.v. awesome.

RMPW follows Hyuga Toru (Oguri Shun), a young billionaire who dropped out of school but has created a huge virtual media company. Hyuga is a little off-kilter, rather abrasive, and has a condition (apparently a real one) where he has problems remembering names and faces or connecting the two. Sawaki Chihiro (Ishihara Satomi) is Hyuga's polar opposite - a fourth-year student of the prestigious Tokyo University with near-eidetic memory, Chihiro should be swimming in job offers, but her awkwardness and odd personality have left her unemployed. Can you see where this is going?



I confess that the first half of the first episode didn't really draw me in and I was ready to write it off...and then, Hyuga and Chihiro met and it was antagonistic and awesome and sparks flew and I was a goner. I spend the second half episode all but hugging myself in glee - every interaction of theirs, whether angry or friendly, had me going gaga.

Caps and thoughts for ep 1 )

One of my flisties asked for romantic jdrama recs and so I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to make a list of my favorite romantic jdramas. When they do it right, nobody is as good.

In no particular order, here are my picks )

And now if you excuse me, I have some romantic jdramas to rewatch.
