1. The Devil Wears Prada Japanese Style [Rating: 8/10]
Everything you ever wanted to know about high fashion or more exactly - this is about selling high fashion which is really the selling of dreams.

Karina does a superb job as Kinue, a girl who was doing quite well selling bedding, and then one day she finds she's been transferred to the Women's Clothing Department. So the stage is set for a Devil Wears Prada remake Japanese style.

Kinue is clumsy, klutzy, and without any fashion sense what so ever. Like Andy Sachs in TDWP. Her new boss is Chief Manager Miki Jinbo who is played by Hitomi Kuroki, and this role is styled as the Streep role in TDWP.

But this is series, not a two hour story for a single movie. So they had to open it up, hence the department store wars. Think Nieman-Marcus vs Bloomingdales vs Bergdoff-Goodman.

Plenty of nice threads to see, and these are worn by some of Japan's most beautiful actresses. So even if high fashion isn't your cup of cha, watching beautiful women is what you get in this series.

As the series progresses, it seems to veer away sharply from TDWP model. Kinue grows personally, professionally, and of course stylishly.

I think if you decide to watch this, just don't expect TDWP. Even with the similarities and the fact that it starts as if it would be the same it simply wasn't the same.

As a guy, Im not interested in fashion as a topic, but I did see TDWP and liked it so I thought I'd give this a chance.

To borrow Miki Jinbo's trademark - Kekko! (Fine!)

I thought this was a fine series which seemed to hit a lot of different areas - broken hearts, broken dreams and so forth. Straightmen and women and a few gays tossed in. A few bad guys too.

It played well as a drama, as a comedy, and as a life-affirming story. The only department that it failed in, and intentionally, was the romance department.

It's not as if it tried and failed, the romance had to be jettisoned otherwise the character of Kinue could not have grown in multiple spheres of her life.

Nice to look at , entertaining, and at times a lot of fun. I liked it. A lot.

Interesting clothes, not so interesting plot. The similarities between this drama and The Devil Wears Prada is striking, though I'd have to say the script and the acting of this drama made the story more cheesy and less endearing than TDWP. I've always been a big fan of Kuroki Hitomi, but for some reason, her acting in this drama was very wooden, and does not match up at all to the level of Meryl Streep. I'm rather disappointed with this drama since I had high expectations for it.

This drama turned out to be more entertaining than I expected based on the premise. There is some good character development throughout the plot. However, since it's solely centered around fashion, that bored me after awhile.

Interesting at first after 6th episode it becomes a little borring. Karina fits to this role quite good, and some clothes and outfits are really cute.

Real Clothes! Woow! I just love this drama it's alot like Devil Wears prada! but the story line is amazing, and inspired me to contiue in the fashion business, it also gives insperation to people to find their style and be proud of who they are and go after what they want in life! Karina and Kuroki Hitomi are amazing in this!
