JDrama: Long Vacation

Was asking my fellow nihon-go classmate which jap drama is worth a watch as I would like to improve on the language by watching more japanese shows.

So...."long Vacation" was recommended as the mother of all japanese drama. Pretty apt for me since I am in a way having a long "yasumi".... hehe......





Just finished the last episode last night....and i must say that for a 10 yr old show (1996) Its a damn good one!!!

I love the lead actress Minami (tomoko)!!! She was just so hilarious and acted like a tomboy although she have the look of a goddess......her acting was superb....ichi ban!!
The leading actor Sena (Takuya Kimura) totally shot to fame after this show....i still remember the craze about him during my teens.....

Wow...i was looking for images to put in this blog and found out that this show had won so many awards during the 1996 Television drama academy awards!!! Best drama, best actor, best actress best so many thingsssss!!!

Takuya Kimura still's one of my fave Jap actors *gorgeous*

gosh, i watched it 10 years ago..one trouble when watching Jap soap for me was have to pay 100% attention to mandarine subtitled

"Jap" is actually an insult to the Japanese, like "nigger" to Africans.

LV is funny! The actress had acted in other comedies too.

I was also a big fans of the show when I was in my teens.I remembered Takuya Kimura is juz so gorgeous and the dream guy of all of my girl classmate. Minami was equally good.What I like Minami coz she is such a strong lady and preservere against all odds. Sena striving against all odds to win the piano competitions.
Both of them encourage each other in everything and its such a classic love story.
