My love for Kdrama started because I’m watching Jdrama and I find it quite a disappointment that there are not really that much Jdrama on Viki so I have to go elsewhere for my Jdrama needs. Now I know that the license process of Jdrama is more complicated but I think Viki should try harder. I want more people to discover the joy of Jdrama.
I would love to see those latest Jdrama on Viki:
I’m Your Destiny (Boku, Unmei no Hito desu. / ボク、運命の人です。)
Starring: Kamenashi Kazuya and Yamashita Tomohisa from Nobuta wo Produce (my very first Jdrama )
Masaki Makoto and Kogetsu Haruko are both 29 years old and single. Since they were children, they have passed each other at various places like on the beach and shrines. Yet, the two are not aware of each other at all. One day, a man appears in front of Makoto and introduces himself as God. He tells Makoto about his destined soulmate and that she works next door. When he faces Haruko, he tells her “I’m your destiny.”
I Love You Just a Little Bit (Anata no Koto wa Sorehodo / あなたのことはそれほど )
Mitsu is a 29-year-old woman who married “the number 2 man in her life,” but has been unable to forget her first love, Arishima. When she accidentally encounters him after several years, she feels it is destiny calling, and the two spend one night together in secret from their spouses. Arishima himself has just begun a family of his own, with a newborn child, but he and Mitsu find themselves continuing their affair. While they at first enjoy what seems to be a no-strings attached affair, it gradually begets subtle changes in feeling. Mitsu’s husband, Ryota, becomes aware of the affair and ups his devotion to her to keep her. Meanwhile, Arishima’s wife, Reika, is a picture perfect mother and devoted wife, throwing this four-way relationship into an increasingly complicated web of mixed emotions.
My Son (Haha ni Naru/ 母になる )
Yui, a woman that believes being a mother is something that comes naturally. Risako, a woman that worries about being a good mother. Asako, a woman who really wants to be a mother. This drama is about how 3 of them become mothers.
Unremarkable office worker, Fukase Kazuhisa, leads a boring life. The only place he can relax is the Clover Coffee Shop. Here he meets Ochi Mihoko and they begin to date. Just as he begins to grow accustomed to a more enjoyable life, something occurs that drives a wedge between the lovers. Mihoko receives a letter that accuses Fukase of being a murderer. Fukase realizes that he must now disclose the only darkness that happened in his life. He begins to tell Mihoko of a “secret” that he has not spoken of for ten years… Everyone sins. But how can you forgive and be forgiven?
Frankenstein’s Love (Frankenstein no Koi/ フランケンシュタインの恋)
An incident 100 years ago led to a professor’s creation of a monster with a human-like form but definitely not a human-like appearance. And yet, this immortal monster has more compassion than humans. He quietly hides deep in the forest and dreams of the day he can live as a human being even though he knows this is impossible. Then something results in his encounter with a young woman Tsugaru-san and he falls in love with her. He starts to learn about love, friendship and the world. However, there is a secret. A monster cannot come into contact with a human being.
Decided to only list the upcoming/currently airing Jdrama I want to see otherwise the list will be endless. I also have a bunch of channels pending for Jdrama.
