I”S OST

Current mood:

I like the feel of these two songs from the OST of the Japanese drama, I”S.

Yesterdays by Takezawa Migiwa (竹澤汀)

Coffee by Mrs. Green Apple

Kansai boys

Current mood:

It’s been a while since a guy from Johnny’s Entertainment caught my eye. Shigeoka Daiki (重岡 大毅) who played Kaga in the Netflix series, 宇宙を駆けるよだか a.k.a. Switched is cute. This umbrella scene sealed the deal. And yet it’s another guy from the Kansai region! Most of the Japanese guys I liked (celebrity or not) came from there. ONF’s U also hails from Osaka and so is Nishikido Ryo. They exude a certain charm. I find them more candid and more chivalrous than boys from Tokyo in general. The stereotype doesn’t apply to all of course. The slight tan also gives them a manlier appeal.

Dropped The Third Charm and Bungaku Shojo because they became boring towards middle. I’m replacing them with The Beauty Inside and When Time StoppedWhere Stars Land is still on my list plus 3 J-dramas. I’ll write about them after watching more.

アシガール (Ashi Girl)

I fell in love with this drama. I couldn’t stop watching until I finished it. It’s sweet and pure. It’s my kind of love story. The characters didn’t even kiss but my heart was full after watching the whole series. I like the characters. The female lead is someone whom you’d describe as 真っすぐ or “massugu” lit. straight. “Massugu” is like a combination of being upright, honest, and direct. There’s a nuance of innocence or naivety too. She has a one track mind and pursues that one goal relentlessly. The male lead is your typical prince charming — cool, honorable, kind, and capable.

The story is cute. It has historical and sci-fi elements. A normal high school girl who runs fast time travels to the samurai war era. She falls in love with a young lord. In order to get closer to him, she disguised herself as a boy and became a foot soldier sworn to protect him.

The other dramas that started airing recently, which I I find interesting are Bungaku Shoujo (文学処女), Where Stars Land and The Third Charm. It’s a slow year for K-drama.

花のち晴れ〜花男 Next Season〜 Ending

Noooo! I knew this would happen but I still hate this ending! 😢 Tenma-kun…💔 Kaguragi Haruto has nothing on him. I’m having a second male lead syndrome.

This bittersweet OST sang by Utada Hikaru makes my heart throb. This is 「初恋」 (First Love). It made me miss Yuto more…😢 U…😢  Why did I let his presence grow on me like this?

「きみはペット」 Ending 🌧️

Kyaaaaaaa! 😍 That was the perfect ending! 💖💖💖 That ending sequence was everything I wanted for the series. I don’t care about giving out spoilers since this is my blog anyway. I obviously love the rain ☔ in the background. This blog is named “Rainy Days” after all. I already expressed my love for this OST in my previous post.  I was giggling the whole time while watching starting from the part when Momo was walking with a red umbrella towards Sumire. It was memorable because it was the first time she initiated a kiss. Sorry this post is all over the place. I haven’t sorted out my thoughts and feelings yet.

After pondering a bit on these dramas, I realized that the reason why I enjoyed them is that I can relate with the characters in one way or another, or at least I see some trait of mine in them. The story gives me a glimpse of what could happen to someone who has those traits. In effect, gaining insight to what could possibly happen to me. It might sound self-centered but that is the truth I arrived at.
