Japanese Dramas 2015 (January – March)

Header - J-Dramas 2015

I haven`t been interested in a Japanese Drama in a long time, but finally something caught my eye. The plot stories seem interesting and of course I wouldn’t miss checking the new drama with  Oguri Shun.

When it comes to J-Dramas there is this distinct style that is easy to pinpoint. While Korean dramas are romance happy and bubbly,  you can notice that Japanese dramas tend to have a darker style. This of course does not make them any less good. This dramas keep to that tradition and if you are a fan you may like what’s coming.

15 years later, Ikuo (Toma Ikuta) now works as a detective. He is a good person and his arrest rate is the highest at the police station. Meanwhile, using his handsome appearance and cleverness, Tatsuya (Shun Oguri) becomes a high ranking Yakuza.
