JDrama: Koizora (恋空)
Posted August 30, 2008on:
Watch this! I’ve only seen the first episode and am super excited for the rest. For those of you who haven’t heard of Koizora, it’s a super cute story about high school romance. Some dialogues are pretty mushy but nothing out of the norm in a jdrama. This is not the 2007 movie but actually a very short drama – six episodes total – airing August to September 2008.
[Later… Same day] Lol, I’ve finished the three episodes that have aired! If you think this drama is too immature or mushy for you, stick it through the first 2 episodes. Trust me it gets a lot more interesting and much more emotionally gripping. So many tragedies happen to the unlikely couple of Mika and Hiro, I can’t help but be amazed that they make it through it all. I won’t speak too early since a lot could happen in the second half / the last 3 episodes. I hope they make it.
SPOILER: To name a few tragedies (in short to avoid serious spoilers): Ex-girlfriend drama, love triangle, teenage pregnancy, serious illness, parental un-approval.
