|Ooku Dai-ishou [大奧第一章]|
Historical drama [Rating: 8/10]
I have yet to watch a japanese historical drama for a long,long time. the last time I attempted to watch one, the dialogue was too profound, probably because of the taiwanese translation.
But Ooku is a highly recommended historical drama. Although set in ancient japan, the Edo era, the drama has 'modern' elements. it is not just 'mindless' fightings between shogans..It is the complicated relationships amongst people in Oku that is the draw point.
|Over Time [オーバー・タイム]|
My fave jdrama since yr 2000 [Rating: 9/10]
This has been my fave drama since yr 2000(and still is). Probably because of the things that happened to me that year, so this drama acted like an reflection of my life at that point.
Indeed the love between the lead actress and actor is deep yet incomprehensible. He chose to give up her, so that she can be with the doctor...It is indeed a true eg of sacrificial love. Profound and melancholic..
