Nothing is as good as a good jdrama, so favorite jdramas are my favorite dramas of all.

I did a Top Jdramas list some time ago, with reasons and vids, but time to update. Why? Well, for one, current dramas number 3-5 weren't even on the list then, because I haven't seen them.

Same rules as earlier apply: it’s all about which are my favorite jdramas? And why? Here is the list of my favorite dozen, with reasons, vids, and pics. Note: no drama that I haven't finished completely is on this list, because who knows how it will turn out. Beautiful Life might end up on the list once I have enough courage to finish it, but am not done yet. Also, I have a 'favorite scene' from each drama, and I described it very briefly, if at all, to make it as unspoilery as possible.

You know how I did a list for my favorite kdramas, here (even if it already has to be revised, seeing that The Legend is my fave kdrama ever, and actually my fave drama, period). Well, this is my Top 10 jdramas list.

Same rules apply: it’s all about which are my favorite jdramas? And why? Here is a Top 10 list, with reasons, vids, and pics. Note: no drama that I haven't finished completely is on this list, because who knows how it will turn out. Beautiful Life might end up on the list once I have enough courage to finish it, but am not done yet. Also, I have not yet seen a lot of famous jdramas (Friends, Million Stars, 1 Litre etc), because of a recent kdrama binge, which is about to give way to a jdrama one, so my list might be very different a few months from now ;) Also, I have a 'favorite scene' from each drama, and I described it very briefly, if at all, to make it as unspoilery as possible. Except for the Top 3, the places within Top 10 get reshuffled quite often. A drama I rank number 8 this week might be number four next ;) But the content of Top 10 stays the same.

List behind cut, with reasons, caps and vids )

ETA: Yes, I plan to do the same list for Taiwanese dramas as well. But I need to finish a few twdramas I am currently watching first (Romantic Princess, Corner with Love, My Lucky Star) so as to know whether they should be included.

Finished Itoshi Kimi E which was perfection.

I think Pride is ultimately still my fave jdrama (I am going to rewatch it shortly) but this is a very close second.

And such hopefulness and sweetness. I was smiling and awwing. Which is just as well after earlier hell.

Thoughts while watching )

This is going into my Top 5 dramas ever.

Screencaps coming.

Next drama most likely to be Jotei. I had such awesome run lately, I am about due for a lame one, so I might as well pick a deliciously cheesily entertainingly lame one.

OMG.

I just finished ep 8 of Itoshi Kimi E and

oh oh oh OH.

Ryoko must die. DIE. Fine, she ditched her fiance when she found out he was going to go blind. Then, month or so after, she changed her mind and is all 'I want you back' (does she really think a man would still love her after what she did?????) and when Shunsuke tells her 'I have someone I love' (EEEEEE!) she is all 'that girl can't take care of you the way I can because I am rich blah blah.' STAB.

Fine.

Whatever.

But then he is having one of his horrible attacks, when he can't see, and has been like this for three hours, and he thought he talked to Shiki and then the door rings, and he opens the door and he is "Shiki?' and it's Ryoko and she is hugging him silently because she wants to take advantage of his blindness and I want to KILL her. KILL her. Please tell me she isn't going to drag him to bed. STABSTABSTAB. Because he isn't used to blindness yet enough or even has been with Shiki long enough to be able to distinguish just by touch.

And taking such horrible advantage of someone so vulnerable is so DESPICABLE.

I want her to be run over by a bus. Back and forth.

In other 'you annoy me' news, Dear Shiki's Friends and Family. You are nice and all, but come ON! Shiki is 27, she is certainly old enough to know what she wants. If she wants to date a guy who will go blind, it's her own freaking business and not yours. Piling up on him is NOT allowed. Yeah, yeah, try to guilt him into leaving her, that will be great. NOT. Yes, I think I have reached the utterly blindingly irrational shipper stage.

Because OMG, Shiki/Shunsuke are one of the most awesome OTPs in the history of jdrama. They just work together. And I love that she knows what's ahead, really, but she can keep not only her spirit up but his. I love the whole bit where he is 'how can you want me, even God abandoned me' and she is all not wallowy back but snarks that 'even if God abandoned you, you have such a great catch by your side.' And he grins and there is teasing and awesomeness.

Btw, Fujiki Naohito? Has the world's most gorgeous smile. His whole face transforms.

Oh, and eeeeee! When he kisses her, he has to bend almost in half. It's the most awesome thing ever.

But the scene that killed me dead the most was when they were somewhere out of town, and he decided to go all the way back to Tokyo with his eyes closed, to 'practice.' And OMG OMG OMG he was so vulnerable, and she slipped her hand in his, and she became his eyes.

I might, or might not, have bawled like a little girl.

Also, I have to say it takes a lot of guts for Shunsuke to tell Shiki's father upfront about his condition. He rocks.

I have to say, I know they are trying to put the most positive spin on the blindness thing, but sorry, it's still horrible. In my AU, there is a new cure in a few years and he gets his eyesight back.

ETA: No Ryoko sexing. But she goes instead to Shiki to tell her to ditch Shunsuke because, according to her, Shunsuke wants her, Ryoko, but 'you know how gentle he is' so he won't ever say that to Shiki. According to Ryoko world, that is. UGH DIEDIEDIEDIE.

ETA2: Nonononono. Argh. Stop being noble and self-sacrificing, Shunsuke, before I reach into the screen and smack you! He is so going to leave her, isn't he? Because she is temporarily giving up pediatrics for him and because he doesn't want to burned her. NOOOOO. Stop. NOW. Thanks. Oh, this drama is good at making me emo. But he is so scared and so good.

But I am glad to announce her Dad gave blessings. Yay.

ETA3: Hell. He did it. Hellhellhellhell.

FUJIKI NAOHITO.

OMG.

OMGOMGOMGOMG.



After Itoshi Kimi E, I think I have completely and unexpectedly went head-over-heels.

I mean, you guys. He is so GOOD. And not hard on the eyes, either.

Not to mention that he is in his mid-thirties, which is YAY. Plus, he is 5'11" which is also yay, and is married with a kid which is also yay, because I like my actors of the stable, non-utterly-psychotic variety :)

Here is a gigantic picspam.

Pics behind cut )

In other news, Itoshi Kimi E episode 6 is the best thing ever. And I was literally whimpering at my screen. If Shunsuke didn't make it to the airport, I think I would have died.

And did I mention it's probably the most beautifully filmed jdrama I've ever seen?

Oh, how I love Shiki. I want to be like her when I grow up, except I already am a grown-up. She is kind, and fun and fearless about her feelings (which she has to be, because Shunsuke would never take the first step the way he is now), but not cloying or saintly or Mary Suish about it. And I love that she is basically the only person who can make him laugh. He enjoys himself with her.

Heee. Here is the trailer for Hong Gil Dong, which is a kdrama about a Korean version of Robin Hood which begins to air in January. Looks like total crack.



[livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore, there are swords. :)

It's written by the Hong Sisters, who wrote My Girl and Delightful Girl Chun-Hyang, so I am eagerly looking forward to it. But you know what's funny? I was all excited when Joo Ji-Hoon was going to be the lead way back when, but then he dropped out of the project and my interest went back to 'I love the Hong Sisters, but will see how it goes, because I don't know either of the male leads.' Psssssst...I have been a good girl. I just realized that the lead is Kang Ji Hwan, the lead of Capital Scandal. OMG. I think I am going to explode. Plus, Sung Yuri was adorable in Snow Queen at this is unlikely to end in huge-scale death.

In other news, I want to MURDER Shunsuke's gf in ep 4 of Itoshi Kimi E. Ugh.

Reasons why )
