2 Beach Boys & a Pianist

My current obsession with the 90's is getting out of control! I've already watched Reality Bites twice this month and now I'm repeating scenes from "Long Vacation" over and over again...  finding a well reviewed JDorama set in the 90's is good enough for me but at the same time, having not just one, but 2 out of these 3 gorgeous men starring in it is not good for my health! Ooh the heart, it flutters too much (>_<)~ their hair... so perfectly quaffed.

Such a cool vibe. The two actors star alongside each other in "Beach Boys".

My boyfriend and I are big fans of Mr. Sorimachi's GTO series; one of the best JDramas out there in my opinion. The chemistry between his and Nanako Matsushima's character is just so fun to watch and they actually fell in love at the set and got married! 

And finally, we have Takuya Kimura. DB loved "Hero" and he told me to watch it ages ago, which I still haven't ^^" but will definitely now after having watched his performance in Long Vacation. He stars alongside Takenouchi Yutaka as a young piano teacher who starts sharing an apartment with an ex-model 7 years his senior.

I can't imagine anyone else playing the roles of the two leads. Tomoko Yamaguchi is an amazing actress and I loved watching her in this one. I feel that the JDramas back then were more natural compared to the ones they air these days. Nowadays, the dramas seem a bit too exaggerated and unreal. These doramas I've listed, all from the 1990's, are my top 3 JDramas of all time... well, so far, until now. And then comes "1 Litre of Tears". That one's the 4th because it made me cry too much... probably cried a litre for each episode.
