Spring 2011 J-dramas to watch


I haven’t done one of these in a long time so here we go! There are two (maybe more) J-dramas beginning this month for the Spring 2011 season that star actresses from Okinawa.

The first one starts on the 18th is titled “Shiawase ni Narou yo (幸せになろうよ)” and stars Meisa Kuroki in the role of Haruna Yanagisawa.

Synopsis via Tokyograph:
The story involves Katori playing a successful advisor at a marriage consultation agency that aims to bring together people looking for partners. Kuroki plays one of the agency’s clients, who is “so beautiful” that the manual he uses doesn’t apply to her, while Fujiki plays a rich and handsome lawyer who is also a client. Katori starts to fall for Kuroki, but as a professional, he pairs the two together.The second show starts on the 19th and is titled “Madonna Verde (マドンナ・ヴェルデ).” The 6-episode drama stars Ryoko Kuninaka as Rie Sonezaki.
