Summer 2007 Dramas – MORE!

Posted by on May 22, 2007 in Reviews | 0 comments

Ah, some information about MORE dramas have been released. And one sounds really good! It’s making me excited. I might be watching four or five dramas next season, I’m not sure how I’ll keep up (and then my monthly download limit… ahh!!). Here’s the information from Drama Wiki.

肩ごしの恋人 – Katagoshi no Koibito

Based on the Naoki Prize-winning novel, “Katagoshi no Koibito” by Yuikawa Kei, the drama revolves around two friends who approach love with opposite perspectives. Hayasaka Moe(Yonekura) is an office lady who cannot decide on marriage while her friend Ruriko declares that she cannot live without love.

This drama stars Yonekura Ryoko and Nagai Masaru (but I don’t believe I’ve seen them in anything else sorry!)

While that Drama sounds a bit of alright, wait till you hear about the next one…

 

花ざかりの君たちへ – Hanazakari no Kimitachi e
I’ve heard of this one before, I remember reading about it, but I had completely forgotten all about it. But here it is again, so I have to mention it.

The drama is based on the popular manga of the same name by Nakajo Hisaya, which has already been dramatized in Taiwan. Horikita plays the protagonist Ashiya Mizuki, a Japanese girl in the U.S. who one day sees the young athlete Sano Izumi (Oguri) compete in the high jump on television. She begins to idolize him, and decides to move to Japan to attend the same school as him. However, Izumi goes to an all-boys school, so Mizuki disguises herself as a boy to achieve her dream of being with her idol.

Stars Horikita Maki from Nobuta wo Produce, Oguri Shun of Hana Yori Dango and Ikuta Toma (remember his guest roll as Junpei in Hana Yori Dango 2?)

 

Ah, it’s all so exciting. :) What dramas are you thinking about watching next season?
