Jdramas are my first Asian drama loves. Actually truth be told, Matsumoto Jun and Oguri Shun are my first Asian drama loves. Matsujun is kinda looking a bit scary as he’s not aging as time is going on and I’m not wholly sure about how I feel about his dramas – but Oguri Shun still has my drama heart. So when I hear he’s coming out with a new drama I’m usually all about checking it out.
I’ve also been on a big Jdrama kick lately, as I wanted something different from my typical Kdrama feed. I finished Nobunaga Concerto with Oguri Shun and am still making my way through Itazura Na Kiss Love in Tokyo 2 waiting in anticipation for a new episode to be released each week. But just watching those two dramas makes me want to see more, so I decided to research into upcoming Jdramas to get psyched about and thus, this video was born!
Really though I love Jdramas, I haven’t been making as many videos about them because they’re just not as popular with the Asian drama community. I know that there’s a lot of reasons for this – and the money that is put into Kdramas and the lack of Jdrama promotion through the major online Asian drama websites are a big part of it all. Personally, I want to say that if you’re a Kdrama fan who’s never checked out Jdramas, give them a chance. These are a few that I’m looking for but there are a great number of amazing Jdramas that are easy to watch (less than 16 episodes) with awesome storylines that I adore and hope you will like too!
Some great Romantic comedy recommendations (because I know many of you like Rom-Coms) that are already fully released and subbed are:
Itazura Na Kiss – Love in Tokyo (16 episodes)
Last Cinderella (11 episodes)
Tatta Hitotsu no Koi (10 episodes)
Hotaru no Hikari (10 episodes)
Kimi wa Petto (10 episodes)
Happy Drama Watching everyone! ^^
