Welcome to my humble site....

Hajimemashite minna san....welcome to my site on my fave Japanese Pop Culture likes such as dramas, movies, magazine scans, promo events etc. Mainly concentrate on my faves...Keyakizaka46... Erina Mano... Nogizaka46!.... C-ute.... Lee Yeon-Hee!.... if you're a fan at all of any of them then you've come to the right place(!) but many others are featured here besides them. Do mainly quick reviews on things I've watched, try to make the reviews brief, quick to read through with not too many spoilers, just whether they're good or bad and why I thought so plus whether you may find them enjoyable. Many, many screenshots are included from everything I've watched plus any video trailers if they're available. Hope you find something that interests you, don't hesitate to comment, arigato gozaimasu!

Also these days(mid-2017) have many posts for Korean actresses, dramas and films that are worth checking out as over the years have become a much bigger fan of Korean dramas versus the ones from Japan.

Few tidbits.... have no idea why the background color constantly changes, think Blogger keeps doing it.
New item on the right is the 'Featured Post of the Day', will be putting some fabulous oldie posts which some of you may have missed the first time around, all will be at least one year old.

 New Japanese drama season starts this week so will be looking at a few of them in the coming weeks or more but there haven't been too many older ones that I've skipped and felt like finally watching hence taking a chance with this Korean series. The series is 16 episodes long, doubt if I'll give a review for all of them, perhaps like the first and last 4 shows of the drama. Am also going to try to keep all the recaps very short until the very end when I'll be doing some lengthy recaps of the series, trying something new doing it that way. Also sometimes when you watch a long show and do a lengthy review for all the episodes it can get a bit tiring and because of that I always don't finish posting about the drama.

 Briefly, Ma(Kim So-yeon) has just graduated from the Judicial Research \& Training Institute where she studied to be a prosecutor and to the surprise of all managed to pass and Become a prosecutor. To say she is a bit ditzy would be an understatement, she's more into fashion, dressing up and having a good time, why she picked this career was a mystery which will probably be explained as the show goes on.
 On graduation day instead of attending a mandatory training for new prosecutors Ma lied her way out of going by saying her mother was in the hospital and instead went to a ski resort. Her best friend Lee was supposed to rent them a room at a high class hotel but backed out at the last minute due to her business, Ma knew nothing of this as her pocketbook and cell phone were stolen right upon her arrival. Someone else had rented the room out. a mysterious man named Seo who through 2 episodes we don't know much about but let Ma stay in the room  as long as she paid half the cost which she agreed to.
 Also at the resort were two Seoul prosecutors chasing after a felon who has stolen fashion designs in the past and is thought to be at the ski resort to steal another design at an auction taking place there. The auction was the main reason for Ma's visit to the ski resort as she wanted to buy a pair of high class Grace shoes. She did win the bidding but as her money and credit cards were stolen she had no way to pay for them so they were taken away from her. During this fracas Ma thought she saw the man who had broken into her car and stole all her valuables, she chased after him and managed to tackle him as he was running away. However he wasn't running away but instead it was prosecutor Yun who was chasing after the felon who had eluded them for 3 years, her tackling of him prevented the arrest of the criminal.

 Things eventually get settled and Ma heads back to Seoul to begin her new job as a prosecutor. Things at the job do not run smoothly at the least, Ma has her own fashion style which is more suited for a night club than a prosecutor's office. Plus her way of doing the job is quite a bit different than the others do it or shall I say how probably any prosecutor would do it.
 But here ends the first episode, very little happened at her new job but quite a lot does take place in the office in episode two which is 2 posts below this one. Was trying to keep this review short, not sure if it ended up that way but shorter than my usual ones but at least most of the basics of the show have been revealed here. Anything I missed will probably be in the next post as there's a great many screenshots from this episode to help you follow along a bit better plus Kim just looks so, so terrific.
