“There is meaning to life even after the heart stops beating. There are voices that only you can hear.”
Voices of the Dead Episodes: 11 Genre: Medical, mystery Year: 2009 Starring: Eita, Ishihara Satomi, Ikuta Toma, Endo Yuya, Sato Yuki
Ever wanted a medical drama without the gore? Something that delves into more than just the physical treatment of people? Then this is the drama for you. I was quite curious about Voice – the synopsis at DramaWiki didn’t really say much. Tsk tsk! So let me clear up the mystery in one succinct word: Voice = autopsies.
The Last Promise Episodes: Movie Genre: Suspense Year: 2010 Starring: Ohno Satoshi, Sakurai Sho, Matsumoto Jun, Aiba Masaki, Ninomiya Kazunari, Kuroki Meisa, Kitamura Yukiya
As I’m sure is the case with 90% of the people who watch this movie, it caught my attention because of Arashi. Why wouldn’t you watch a movie with Arashi? ^o^ But I have to say, the plotline would’ve hooked me even with the loss of its main attraction.
The Four Hanawa Sisters Episodes: 11 Genre: Romance, comedy, family, drama Year: 2011 Starring: Mizuki Alisa, Kanjiya Shihori, Kawashima Umika, Kichise Michiko, Kato Shigeaki
Okay, okay, so I might’ve watched this drama for Shige ^o^ And was it worth it, or what! I wasn’t quite expecting the emotional ringer this jdrama puts you through; happy or sad, the tears just kept coming.
“I’m just going to trust you. Even if I get used a hundred, a thousand times, I’m just going to trust you. Even if it’s foolish.”
Personal Preference Episodes: 16 Genre: Romance, comedy Year: 2010 Starring: Lee Min Ho, Son Ye Jin, Kim Ji Suk, Wang Ji Hye, Jung Sung Hwa
Lee Min Ho fans across the globe are probably preparing to gouge my eyes out for the low rating. By the end of the kdrama, sure, I was totally in love. Who wouldn’t be? But it took a while for me to be drawn in, so I’m detracting points for that. Otherwise, this is a very sweet and surprisingly complex drama, with hilarious adult humour.
Having watched Oguri Shun in Hana Yori Dango and Hana Kimi, I was eager to watch him in another drama. Juui Dolittle caught my eye; I love medical dramas, so would it be such a stretch to imagine I would enjoy a vet drama?
Especially when Inoue Mao stars alongside him again.
