Japanese Dramas over the years have proved to be will ALWAYS have a place in my heart, and for this reason alone I’m making a 2018 list of Jdramas^^
I used to make more of these but somewhat bittersweetly to me, Korean dramas have totally outshone Japanese dramas in recent years both with popularity and production quality. But that doesn’t mean my love for these dramas has diminished.
I love their rogue and independent nature. They’re open to making dramas that tackles transgender issues (Life as a Girl) and ask big questions that are very controversial (Saint Oniisan), And it’s this willingness to go there that has other countries (including Korea) remaking their stories. For me, this video and Japanese dramas are like talking about a first love – it helps that Matsumoto Jun is still making dramas I have to admit though lol! Now what’s Oguri Shun in? Kame? Hmm..
Happy Drama Watching everyone
