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.
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.

Intrigued by Park Shin Hye in You’re Beautiful, I turned another of her kdramas, interested in seeing her play a more feminine role. In Heartstrings, we finally get the happy ending for Shin Hye and Jung Yong Hwa that we missed in You’re Beautiful. They just make the cutest couple! ^o^

On the quest to watch dramas from MatsuJun’s backlist, I came across Bambino! I put off watching it at first; although the concept sounded intriguing, I had other things I wanted to watch more. But when I came back and revisited the idea, I saw Karina and Ayaka Komatsu both starred in the drama. Count me in!
