Could this possibly be the Japanese version of Grey’s Anatomy? I mean hot interns with mysterious backgrounds? I spotted a George in the nerdy looking Fuikawa (bottom center right in photo) in minutes. And a clumsy Izzy in Toda Erika’s character Hiyama. Aragaki Yui’s character (Shiraishi Megumi, right in photo above) is a combination of Meredith Grey and Christina Yang. She has a famous doctor for a dad and wants to stand independent from her name. Shiraishi is also uber on the ball about each patient’s situation and textbook procedures. I haven’t made up my mind about who Yamashita’s Aizawa (left in photo) would parallel. McDreamy? Guess we’ll see as the drama progresses. I have to say… Code Blue has Yamapi at his hottest. I totally dig the curls.

Here’s some screen caps from episode one with obvious comparisons to Grey’s Anatomy:

I was watching the May 23rd showing of 康熙来了 (Kangxi Come) when they interviewed the cast of an upcoming drama starring Joe Cheng from ISWAK. I’m totally psyched for this drama since the cast seems amazing. The supporting actress 张钧甯 (also appearing in 白色巨塔, White Tower) has been nominated for an Golden Horse award.

The first episode (sans subtitles) is already available for download at verycd.com for those of you who can understand Chinese: http://www.verycd.com/topics/280046/

[Update 07/25/08] I never made it past the first episode. Worth watching? Not really… according to the low ratings this show is getting. Rumors say the show will be cut short because of the disappointing viewership. I guess even Joe Cheng can’t save this drama.

This new drama with Fahrenheit’s Jiro Wang has great potential to be entertaining. Like a typical Asian drama, there’s a theme: FOOD! More specifically: 蛋炒飯 (fried rice made with eggs and other yummy condiments). There’s also the typical love triangle: rich boy, poor boy, and cute girl. We all know who’s going to get the girl, right?

The is a very impressive twist: the girl is blind! Genie plays her character really well. She looks cute even with empty looking eyes. They kind of remind me of anime eyes in Chobits.

Jiro’s serious acting skills have not improved since I first saw him on ISWAK. He should probably stick to the comedic side character. However, I’m a huge fan of Danson Zhe’s performance in the first couples episode I’ve seen of Rolling Love. He has improved a lot since Hana Kimi and his character is very different from his usual beauty obsessed-girly male characters. Sadly, Danson is not the lead (as seen in the poster). I’m still waiting for that day to come.

Number of Episodes: 13
