Oguri Shun: All Sorts of Yes

Why every drama fan should watch atleast one of Oguri Shun’s dramas… (or all of them).

I first saw him in Hana Kimi.

Then in Hana Yori Dango as Rui. I loved this version because it was the closest to the manga.. and I loved the manga..

But my favorite role of his is Rich Man Poor Woman… its among my favorite jdramas.

He was also in 2013’s Woman. Has anyone seen him in this yet?

He will also be in Border, as “I See Dead People”  detective… set to air in April 2014.

Reasons I like Yamapi

I first saw Yampai in Nobuta Wo Produce.

 One in a Million was the first song of Yamapi’s that I listened to.  I love this song because it hooks you and just when you really get into it. BAM its over. So you have to keep listening to it on loop..

He’s really attractive.

I really need to listen to more of his music and watch more of his dramas… like Summer Nude. (BEST TITLE EVERRRR)

If you haven’t watched jdrama Sprout… then you are missing out!

Jdrama Sprout wrecked my life…. in the best way ever.

You’ve heard me on twitter talk about it.. recommending it over and over again.  BUT MAN IT WAS SOOOO GOOD. It has teen angst in a classic rom-dram. It reminds me of alll those first love teen feels in high school. Seriously in my top 5 jdramas of all time.

Spare an hour out of your drama routine and watch Episode 1, part 1 HERE. 

(The acting wasn’t the best but the feel of the drama trumped everything. I’d like to think they captured that awkward teen feel.)

We start out in a flashback 3 months ago and  meet Miku and who is helped mystery guy. She instantly falls in love with this guy, though she didnt see his face or know who is is.. ummmm ok..

 Then she meets Souhei and crushes on him… but she finds out he has a girlfriend. Strike 2, Miku.

Hayato is Souhei’s best friend.. but he’s a player ….who likes Miku. BINGO!

However….many things can happen over a summer……

The other reason I LOOOOOOVE this drama is the soundtrack. Indie band Grouplove has lent 3-ish songs to this drama and they fit sooooooo perfectly. After I marathoned this drama, I downloaded all of Grouplove’s songs from this drama. I am not much an Indie music person, but they are really good!

Check out the Fanmade  Sprout Trailer-ish
