I thought I felt like watching a fluffy, angst-free, silly jdrama.

Being me, I ended up with Love 2000 and First Love instead. Hello, my darling future super-romantic angstfests! First eps of both were excellent.

Let's star with First Love - a 2002 romantic drama starring Watabe Atsuro and Fukada Kyoko. Fukada Kyoko plays Kasumi, a woman in her early 20s. Kasumi is pleased to find out her older sister has just gotten engaged, that is, until she meets the fiance. You see, Nao, the fiance in question, was Kasumi's first love. He was also her high school teacher and they were involved in an angsty illicit relationship together until he felt so guilty he broke it off and disappeared. Ooooooooh, can you feel the aaaangst?

After all, their past involved things like this:



More from the scene, it's an older jdrama so they seem not to have forgotten how to kiss yet )

And then there is Love 2000, the one I am even more excited about. L2000 (also known as Nisennen no Koi) is a 2000 drama starring Takeshi Kaneshiro (a.k.a. the hottest Japanese actor ever) and Nakayama Miho.

Takeshi is a secret agent/assassin from a fictional country sent on a deadly mission into Japan. He meets a systems analyst, played by Miho, and plans to seduce her in order to access the information he needs. And then...in dangermousie's favorite fiction trope of all time...he finds he has fallen in love for real. And who could blame him - have you seen how warm and gorgeous Miho is?

Lots of kissing (across a chain-link fence!), hurt/comfort and angst ensues. Oh, that is going to end so well! (Seeing that at the start of ep 1 he had to kill his brother at the brother's request to complete the mission, I see sparkly happy endings all around).

Just look at them! MMMMM.
