Pride (2004) is a hockey drama starring Takura Kimura as Halu and Takeuchi Yuko as Aki, a typical office lady. I can't remember the details of the plot, except that the leads got together in the end and I LOVED this drama when it aired during high school (no idea why). Anyway, in an attempt to refresh my flagging memory and alleviate my boredom, I'm deliberating whether to buy either Pride or Densha Otoko (the jdorama version, not the Yamada Takayuki movie).
I'm waaay too lazy to stream them online and the current winter Jdorama selection bore me. Bloody Monday 2? Liar Game 2? Heaven forbid, Code Blue 2? I can't stomach any of these. Yamapi did not work for me in Buzzer Beat OR Code Blue. And I only realized last year during my Proposal Daisakusen craze, that he was in Lunch no Joou, an old favourite of mine about 3 brothers (Tsumabuki Satoshi! *drool*) who work together in a restaurant (cute guys + cafe/restaurant = WIN, just look at Antique bakery) and a girl who loves lunch (Takeuchi Yuko). Which brings me to the subject of Takeuchi Yuko. Why?? This ageless actress is currently acting in my current favourite American TV series, Flashforward! =D
Last year, I think I only finished Maou, Seigi no Mikata (cute!), Ryusei no Kizuna, Gokusen, Atashinchi no Danshi and Mei-chan no Shitsuji (crap). I'm such a drama freak (as if Korean dramas aren't enough). That's not counting the ones I couldn't bear to watch for more than 2 or 3 episodes.
Moving on to the point (I digress), so what shall it be? Pride or Densha Otoko?
My decision will be based on DVD availability.
Taa for now! ^_^
P/S: *bangs head on table* Whatever happened to my New Year's resolution to cut down on dramas? Oh well, a girl's gotta have her fix.
