My "MUST WATCH dramas" list - PART II

 Tuesday, May 25, 2010


In part 1 I posted 5 of my most favourite dramas. However, I must state that those were not set in any particular order. And neither the ones that will be following from now on.


6. GALILEO

Synopsis: 
Galileo follows the story of a detective who solves various difficult cases with the help of a renowned university professor.
Personal opinion: 
Plot:
Though it seems uninteresting at first sight, the plot is certain to captivate you. The viewer will be faced with a great deal of extremely interesting mysteries and it's quite fun discovering the solutions together with the protagonists. Yes, the mystery cases will definitely incite anyone's imagination!
Acting:
If you're looking for bishies, this is not the place to go, though I'm sure no one can deny that 
Masaharu Fukuyama is a very attractive man. However, the acting is impeccable, the actors will fascinate you for sure. Maybe you won't love them, maybe you won't scream like a fan girl in front of the screen, but you will certainly like them enough to want more.
Overall:
I'd give it an A+ for the mystery cases and, at least for me, a certain must watch!

And now, from "mystery" genre, let's pass to a more light topic : humour, which happens to be my favourite.

7. SEIGI NO MIKATA

Synopsis(from Wikipedia, because it was too long and I got lazy):
15-year-old Yoko is constantly tormented by her self-centered and fiendish older sister Makiko, who works for a government office after having graduated from a famous university. But despite her ill nature, Makiko's actions tend to somehow make things better for those around her, causing others to praise her as an "ally of justice."
Because of her sister's attitude, Yoko longs to be free. She decides to get her sister married so she will move out. However her plan backfires. There is also a boy called Riku who always teases her because he has a major crush on her. He becomes one of her closest confidants.
Makiko eventually reveals her true nature to her husband, Naoki, who decides to get a divorce. Meanwhile a close friend of Riku's, Chika, tells Yoko that he is about to move away. Her friends attempt to get Yoko to confess through a live T.V. program, but her sister storms in and starts yelling at her, right before she is arrested.
A few days after Makiko's release from prison, Naoki and his parents arrive to talk with Makiko. As the divorce is about to be finalized, Makiko tells everyone that she is pregnant. The series ends with Yoko finally talking to Riku, and Makiko giving birth to a baby. Yoko is the one left caring for it.
Personal opinion:
Plot:
I copied the plot synopsis from Wikipedia because I really wanted people to realize how awesome this series is. I don't know how many of you have watched this 'cause, since it isn't romance genre, many might tend to think it's boring. Well, I personally loved it with capital L! It was an extremely cute and funny story about the "horror" of having older siblings, but with heart-touching subtle messages about the complexity of  family connections. This drama teaches us that probably everyone has problems with their families, that we have to learn to accept those dear to us as what they are, with their good and their bad parts too. All in all, a really nice plot which I recommend for viewers of all ages.
Acting: 
Remember that cute girl I talked about when I presented Tantei Gakuen Q to you? Well, that's her, the main lead actress herself! Like I said before: an extremely talented young actress! Her main co-lead as well, whose name is Yu Yamada, is a very talented actress indeed.I wish to see more of them in the future.
Overall:
I think I praised this drama enough to attract your attention so I'll just limit myself at saying "go watch it now!" :))

 And now, my friends, into the world of romance we go. Comedy/ romance, 'cause that's the only one I cotton with.

8.NODAME CANTABILE

Synopsis:
Shinichi Chiaki is an extremely hard-working and talented music student whose dream is to become a conductor, but he's afraid of studying abroad because he has plane phobia. His life changes dramatically when he meets Noda Megumi, a very talented piano student who also suffers from a childhood phobia that holds her from following her true dreams.
Personal opinion:
Plot:
I really thought the plot was a bit silly. There is so much comedy involved, even from the first episode, that I didn't thin k much about it. Turns out, by the end of the drama I realized there were much heavier topics involved, such as childhood traumas and pent-up feelings, clad in a humours scenario, true, but still complex in their essence.Nevertheless, a very fun and lovely drama.
Acting:
The extremely attractive Tamaki Hiroshi plays the main male lead with an elegance worthy of praise.
As for the main female lead, she is none other then the adorable Ueno Juri.
They both make a very cute and funny couple. One word: KAWAII!!!
Overall:
I'm sure anyone has heard by now of Nodame Cantabile and probably there are best-suited person to praise it then me, so I can only say one thing: watch it and you won't regret it.It's a good, relaxing, fun, enjoyable etc way to spend your time.

9.  MY GIRL

Synopsis:
Gong Chan meets Yoo Rin through a series of  quizzically hilarious circumstances and ends up asking her to pretend to be his long lost cousin in order to appease his very sick grandfather, who he thought was nearing his end. She accepts, but the feelings they start developing for one another soon start getting in the way.
Personal opinion:
Plot:
I usually hate Korean dramas because they tend to to be over dramatic and.. well, exaggeratedly sappy. So a Korean drama must be really good for me to watch it. Just like this one: a cute, loveable story with a good dose of healthy humour and just the perfect amount of tear-jerker scenes, all spiced up with the typical Korean dramas' love triangles.What does it is the humour though! You'll definitely like it! In addition, it had a good OST as well.
Acting:
The acting was absolutely terrific! The one who impressed me the most is the leading actress Lee Da Hea. This role seems to suit her to a T. She performs the comedy scenes with an unequalled skill and the romantic sad ones with such grace that she makes you really feel them as if you were the character yourself. Thumbs up!
Overall:
This drama is in my top ten for sure! Lovely comedy and really nice romantic scenes. The perfect ingredients if you ask me!

10. YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL

Synopsis:
The idol group A.N.JELL is looking for a second lead singer and they want Go Mi Nam, who's said to have the voice of an angel. Mi Nam though is in the States so his agent finds his twin sister, Go Mi Nyu, and asks her to pretend to be Go Mi Nam until he comes back.
Personal opinion:
Plot:
This plot reminds me a lot of a shoujo manga plot and that's mainly the reason I started watching it. Good gender-bender induced humour scenes, good music, cute romantic scenes and to top it all, a cast so gorgeous you could drool over. What more can a fan girl like me ask for!? Tell me a reason, just a single reason this shouldn't be the perfect romantic comedy? Hmm? Yeah, I thought so too! :)
Acting: Oh, the horror of bishies! You never know who to choose. They are all perfect, undeniably hot, they make us hyperventilate even before they open their mouths to say their lines! I'll have to admit though that the main male lead seems to be quite talented. As for the female lead, I'm not sure about her yet. Don't shoot me!The actors were just too dazzling! Blame them!
Overall:
If you love humongous dozes of fluff, this is your kind of drama!:)
