July 13, 2011

Shiawase ni Narou yo premiered on April 18, 2011 and was able to grab 16.3%. I was actually debating if I should watch this one or not, but I gave it a go and… I really liked it! The show has a captivating cast and a delightful plot.  I’m crossing my fingers that the show doesn’t lose its flame as the story progresses! Now onto that recap: Read the rest of this entry ?

J-Drama: 2011 Winter Quarter

December 30, 2010

Now that 2010 is almost over, it’s time to invite 2011 and its Japanese dramas. This winter quarter it seems there is a bunch of crime and psychology dramas, but I did not bother putting them all, only two. Only a few dramas manage to catch my interest this time around, hopefully I’ll be able to watch at least two of the dramas that I listed. If you’re curious about other dramas that are going to be showing, just check out the sources after the drama bunch. Read the rest of this entry ?

Hotaru no Hikari: Drama Review

September 7, 2010

Title(s): Hotaru no Hikari / ホタルノヒカリ/ Glow of the Fireflies
Genre: Romance, Comedy
Episodes: 10
Broadcast Network: NTV
Aired: Jul. 11, 2007 – Sep. 12, 2010
Cast: Haruka Ayase, Fujiki Naohito, Kuninaka Ryoko, Kato Kazuki

Description: Hotaru (Haruka Ayase) works for a famous interior design company. It’s a glamorous job but Hotaru’s private life is totally the opposite of glamorous. She lives alone, and when she isn’t working she’s mostly lazing about her rented house in training wear. She’s not interested in men. In fact, she isn’t interested in anything. “I’d rather lay around than fool around,” is her motto. Her landlord is a bar owner, and one day his son, who has just separated from his wife, comes to inspect the rental property, not knowing that someone is living there. He is shocked at the mess, but not as shocked as Hotaru. He turns out to be her boss, Takano (Fujiki Naohito). – Japan Times Online

Update!

September 1, 2010

As you can see, the site has gone through a name change! We are no longer Spill the drama beans (SDB) but Lost In Paradise (LIP). Spill the drama beans was a temporarily name until I could think of a new one. I finally started planning on one last week. Lost in Paradise is named after a song by a Korean band, (but now its just the lead singer left) Rumble Fish, called Lost In Paradise from their album One Sweet Day.

School is almost in session for me which means cutting back on dramas. GASP! I’m trying to finish off Kekkon Dekinai Otoko and Hotaru no Hikari by next Wednesday. After I finish those I can do drama reviews on them, hopefully the game plan goes as I want it. Unless I get stacks of homework on the first week of school, that would be a bummer.

As for my forthcoming reviews/recapping, I’m still planning on recapping the last 5 episodes of the drama. Also, with Baker King having the possibility of going on hiatus I may just recap episode 16 and up. That’s if I have the time, of course! Also, my first impression of the Japanese drama, BOSS, will be up as soon as I can get some screencaps from episode 1. Oh, the best way to get information on my progress is checking out the Forthcoming Reviews page.

Over and out!~

Drama List: The Month of September

September 1, 2010

School is almost in session, which means cutting back and finishing off dramas. Sigh! I know I have to bust my chops finishing my summer homework to have the sweet opportunity of watching the finished airing dramas. I’ll be reviewing dramas slowly, probably only watching two at a time, one Japanese and one Korean. Hopefully, I can find room in my schedule! Read the rest of this entry ?

Upcoming Summer J-Dramas, 2010

June 30, 2010

July is right around the corner, which means Japanese dramas will kick off in a couple of days or in a few weeks. Now, I didn’t put every single upcoming drama down, since that would be a bit too much for me. I did list dramas that have captured my attention or have actors that I like. As for checking out all these dramas, maybe I will, but I shall be checking out a few. It depends on my schedule and if I can find any in English subtitles. If you are curious about other upcoming dramas aside from these (in the post), check out this forum at Crunchyroll.
