I so love Asian dramas, but of late the internet seems to be loosing dramas faster than I can find or watch them. So many beautiful things that people love, lost… it’s so sad. And regional locks to boot. I sooo wish that things did not have to be this way.
I took a few months off because I was busy and come back to find Drama Fever gone and with it quite a number of dramas I have enjoyed in the past or even had not finished. The two I was working on were “Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms” and “Prince of Lan Ling”. I was especially enjoying Prince of Lan Ling. The first few episodes where some of the best I have seen. But I never got to finish it.
And then I come on here. I had already lost Mischievous Kiss: Love in Tokyo which I really loved… but did get to see to the end. But now I see I’ve lost also “The Girl’s Speech” and “Hours of my Life”. Again, I was especially enjoying The Girl’s Speech… Some of the best early episodes I have seen. And now they are gone… I’m so sad, and I never got to see the ends of these dramas. Meh. Really sad.
I really hate seeing so many beautiful things that people love seemingly scrubbed from the face of the universe… I have trouble seeing the good in that. I know it’s not Viki’s fault. They are on our side trying to save what they can… but I still hate it and I’m very sad.
The Girl’s Speech is still here. Maybe it’s not available in your region? I live in Europe and I can see it fine. https://www.viki.com/tv/29040c-the-girls-speech?locale=en
Mischievous Kiss: Love in Tokyo is restricted to me (both the Japanese and the Korean version), but that’s not something I would ever consider watching again.
However, there are other options, you know, so that you can finish the ones you started. A quick Google search found me The Girl’s Speech
You have to search for it under Gakkou no Kaidan, the Japanese title.
Same for Itazura na Kiss - Love in Tokyo. I found it on the same site, as well as Prince of Lan Ling.
Warning: never click on any popup window or ad on those sites, and you’ll be fine.
Thanks so much. I really do want to see the rest of these shows… And I would totally re-watch Mischievous Kiss: Love in Tokyo again… Not sure I will have time though. But yes, The Girl’s Speech is region locked for me. Also, yes that Eternal Love is the same drama… but it is also region locked… I’ll take your advice and search for these in Japanese though.(or Chinese for Eternal Love) Thanks much. You guys are a huge help.
I’m just concerned… Viki seems like about the last of the reputable Asian drama sites… They seem to be dropping like flies. And now Viki is losing shows so fast. I can hardly find Japanese shows on here any more and we’re losing all the old ones that I love.
