Jdrama Recommendation: Long Vacation

The iconic OST for the drama, La La La Love Song:

The number one reason to watch this drama is for its well-written script.

Have you ever watched a drama where the plot progresses so fast that it’s almost like you’re watching a Dramabeans recap instead of the actual show? Or have you watched a drama that is so slow that you give up on the show and start reading Kpop forums instead?

Well, I think I’ve found a drama with perfect pacing — Long Vacation, a 1996 Japanese drama starring Kimura Takuya and Yamaguchi Tomoko as two housemates who start out as friends but gradually begin developing romantic feelings for each other.

There’s a lot of dialogue, but it doesn’t make the show boring. Instead, their conversations are always interesting, and are structured in a way that seems natural, rather than simply existing to further plot along.

Score: 9/10

I’ll basically be posting links to individual performances in the episodes and also reviewing the performances. Continue reading
