JAPANESE DRAMAS I'VE EVER WATCHED IN 2016

recommended japanese dramas i've ever watched
I'm happy to know that I've accomplished some of my j-drama bucket list. Now I can declare myself as a proud,devoted fan of Japanese dorama. I've stopped watching K- Dramas since last year and move on with J- Dramas (Don't ask, I'm total outdated with any recent k-drama lol) Particularly because I felt bit bored with their common plot and actor/actress. No offense tho, both has their own charms. It's just my personal opinion , I feel like J-Dramas plot ; idea is less complicated , more relatable in real life and seeing how the actor/actress dressed in such fashionable clothes is like gaining a new knowledge in j-fashion😊

Since it's holiday season , probably some of you are looking something good to watch,
here I present a list of japanese dramas i've ever watched in entire year :

( Ps : If you're fan of romantic-comedy genre , go check THIS post ,too)

j drama sweet my little lover
1. Minami Kun No Koibito
My Little Lover / 南くんの恋人
Main Cast: Maika Yamamoto, Taishi Nakagawa
Number of Episodes : 10
Watch Eng-Sub : Viki
It's a high school teen mixed with fantasy genre drama.A girl named Chiyomi suddenly turn into 15 cm tall.Story focused on the character development like usual teens drama, how she deal with herself, one sided love and future dream. It's a sweet, fluffy drama but not too childish till make me go irritated or in indonesian we said ; alay lol. Fyi the writer of this drama is the same writer of Itakiss 2 love in tokyo, that's why there's slight similarity on how the plot goes.

Based on Novel by Daniel Keyes,focused on the mental story of Sakuto Shiratory (age 28) ,his mental intelligence is just like 6 years old boy. Later, with help of  medical innovation ,  he becomes a genius who can discover what is adulthood feels like and also true meaning of love. I nearly cried watch this drama simply because it touched my heart! Yamapi acting such superb *clapclap* this drama made me reflect to always put love on humanity first and i just wanna hug him whenever he's sad and tell that it's gonna be okay, and reality is just too cruel that's all 😭

funny comedy romance japanese drama the most difficult love review
3.The Most Difficult Romance
Sekai Ichi Muzukashii Koi / 世界一難しい恋
Main Cast: Ohno Satoshi , Haru
Number of Episodes : 10
Watch Eng-Sub : KissAsian
A workaholic ,successor president of famous hotel company, Samejima Reiji never truly fell in love till meet the girl of his dream, Misaki who is a blunt and oblivious lady as one of his employee. Drama focused on how Reiji get Misaki's heart in perfect way,without looking too cheesy
Up until the second episode, you might find this drama bit boring please keep on till you find that  it's hilarious ! Can't hold on Reiji's stupidity , 4D character, tho somehow I hate him the max when he's being too selfish but somehow I can feel symphatetic toward him, The struggle is real ,anyway ( lol boys do you need to struggle to death like that to get the girl you want ? haha!)

Have you watched a popular korean movie 'twenty once again' ? If your'e into that kind of fantasy meet reality drama then you gotta watch Sumika Sumire. An unmarried granny got a chance to got back into her 18 years old self yet living in a modern era. My favorite character in whole story is none other but the mysterious magic cat, Rei San. Why? Simply because I wanna have his power lol.

dorama japanese recommendation
Kono Etsuko always have dream to work in fashion magazine company.She is stylish and know all about fashion inside out.Unexpectedly,the company where she got interviewed, hiring her as a proofreader, instead of fashion editor.
My Favourite japanese actress,Ishihara Satomi just prove it again that she's not just pretty but can act. I love love her character in this drama so much,being a smart straightforward yet chic who knows what she want.Somehow ,this drama makes  regain  energy lol

A naive ,single, 30 year old Shibata Michio finally found job after she got bankrupt at her shunin / ex boss new cafe, for the sake of living and free to eat.Later did she know, she fall for him already.Watching this whole drama is probably like eating a slice of rainbow cake, good cinematography, famous actor and actress, nice plot but uh-oh there's something missing.It could be great drama but they just didn't get the chemistry :S  Anyway, it's drama to watch when you're on ease.

  4. I like J-Dorama also. But recently I never watch it.But the most I hate from J-Dorama is that many J-Dorama having sad ending. One of my favorite J-Dorama is Joudan Jyanai.

    1. On list above, it's mainly happy ending :) no worries, if you want to see more happy scenes, you should choose a rather comedic drama , im sure it'll end happily !
