Cyborg Maeda Atsuko Interests Me.

September 30, 2010

When word was out that Maeda Atsuko was going to have a significant role in an upcoming drama called ‘Q10’, I didn’t bat an eye.  It was probably bound to happen, with her consistent popularity.

It wasn’t until I came across this picture that I started to pay attention:

Yes, that is Atsuko: as a robot.  And yes, I fall into the undying cliche of finding robots endlessly fascinating, especially those in the form of attractive females.  From what I’ve gathered, the drama is about a high school boy who encounters a strange girl who is revealed to be a cyborg.  Expect shenanigans, hilarious oddities and awkward situations to unfold as the boy inevitably starts falling for the extremely cute android.

Rumor has it there will be a kiss scene between the two and it will, of course, make me an unreasonably harsh critic on the male actor who plays the protagonist.  I’m totally better looking and better suited to play the protagonist, but you know, whatever.

Robot girl played by an idol from my favorite girl group got my attention.  It premieres October 16th; hope there’s a team out there planning to sub this!

Here’s a short CM below:


One Mommy, Three Daddies?

June 22, 2009

tI’m not going to go around defending Japanese Dramas. They’re weird and a lot of times have ridiculous premises. Korean dramas are similar but also completely different. I think there’s a lot more drama in Korean Dramas. I don’t know how I can exactly explain that except to say that the one pictured above is about a woman who’s husband couldn’t have children so they got donated sperm. The husband dies and she has a child. For some odd reason, they don’t know who the father is. It’s one of those three.

There are all sorts of holes in the story. I don’t even want to begin to try to talk about them, but I am looking for watch the k-drama for the sole purpose that Eugene Kim is the female lead/mommy. You should recognize her from her being the Kpop’s first major girl group S.E.S.

Can someone help me find this drama?

Awe Crap…

May 6, 2009

LMAObrigade sent me a recommendation for a TV Drama to watch. It all started with him mentioning Kutsuna Shiori, who was the center for Pocky commercials for a while. The ones with Orange Range – Oshare Banchou as the song.

I looked into the show and also immediately recognized Kojima Haruna of AKB48 who plays a small role.  The show is  called Mei-chan no shitsuji (Mei’s Butler). I was immediately hook in by the show about an all girls school and their butlers who serve them. It’s a little hard to explain the story in a blog post, but I can assure you, it’s good. 

It’s only ten episodes long but here I am watching episode five. They are hour long episodes so yeah….

There goes my night of getting things done.
