Seigi no Mikata (JPN, 2008)

If you’re an Indonesian, I believe you are familiar with “Bawang Merah, Bawang Putih” (Onion and Garlic? Hahahaha, I can’t find the best translation for this) story: a woman who is soooo cruel to her kind sister. Well, this J-dorama simply has that theme, but since this is dorama (and adapted from manga with same title), not sinetron, this sister slavery story turned hilarious!

Hanazakari no Kimitachi e (JPN, 2007)

If you ask me about which dorama is being overrated by fans? No doubt, I’ll answer Hanazakari no Kimitachi e (Hana Kimi). Yup, even though this dorama has flying colors in term of rating (Visit this site and you’ll find fans adore it and simply giving 9 to 10 star way too easily), I guess this dorama failed in keeping the main story arc as main interest. However, this is only my personal opinion. If you want to know why, you may read my review below.
