Guess what? I made a comm! Come play with me!  
So flist, I have news. News that been slowly developing over the past couple weeks! I'm very excited to announce a new comm, put together by me and mojotastic!

Ever wanted to squee about a drama but no one on your flist is watching it?
Wondering what this wacky world of Asian entertainment is all about?
Want to relive an old show with some new friends?

Of course you do! I think we've all watched a lot of dramas on our own, so a change is always fun. dorama_watch is comm for the watching and rewatching of dramas as a group. We'll be watching on a set schedule (right now, three eps a week) and setting up a discussion/squeeing/thoughts post for every episode. Plus, people can post whatever they want about what the comm is watching at the time!

To try it out, mojotastic and I chose one show to watch and another to rewatch (you may have already seen both or neither)! So we'll be doing Love Shuffle and Nodame Cantabile at first. But future shows will be chosen by nominations and polling, so be sure to stop on over later if those aren't your cup of tea.

There's more detailed info over on the first entry or profile of the comm. So guys, questions/comments/suggestions? Is this something you're interested in? Do you think the comm is moving too fast or too slowly? My flist is totally my focus group on this!

I tried Love Shuffle but I couldn't get over Tamaki's skeletal frame. I seriously spent more time wondering if I should compose a letter to him in Japanese (when I don't even know the language) and ask him to please eat. Hehe.

See, this is why it's so hard to pick a show to watch for the first time with other people! I really have no idea what I'm signing myself up for! It's much easier to pick shows to rewatch because I know I love them.

I was also seriously considering My Girl (which I've never seen) but I think it may be a kdrama classic and I already consider Nodame a jdrama classic. HMMM.

Ah I really liked My Girl. It was goofy but fun. I was rewatching The Legend yesterday and I know what you mean by choosing good shows to watch. Dal Ja's Spring? =D

LOL! I have the same problem with Toda Erika. I mean, LOOK AT HER ARMS in that picture. They are like pipe cleaners. Whenever I see her I just want to send her a cheeseburger in the mail. I'm sure it probably wouldn't travel to Japan all that well but that chick needs too eat something like yesterday.

Seriously. It's not even attractive. That's why I appreciate actresses like Inoue Mao. I'm kinda worried cuz of the Nodame movies. I don't want Chiaki senpai to be a half-starved (3/4?) person, it'll take away from the greatness that is the character.

fun! i just started Love Shuffle, and was contemplating a rewatch of Nodame, so this will be perfect! do you plan to do some twdramas, too?

Yeah, I saw your post about starting Love Shuffle when I was working on banners and I thought "Wow, good timing!" Yaay, I'm glad you're going to be watching that one too. :D

do you plan to do some twdramas, too?
Yeah, sure! I figured having people nominate shows in the future will give the comm a good idea of what people want to watch AND give me ideas for shows to watch! I don't know many twdramas. I actually just started watching Meteor Garden on the sly, which is my first one. :)

Good timing, I was just about to rewatch Nodame Cantabile and give Love Shuffle another try! 8D *found the first episode of LS boring and couldn't finish*

For a Taiwanese drama, YOU GUYS SHOULD TOTALLY DO Hua Yang Shao Nian Shao Nu. 8D

Yay, I'm glad it synced up with your schedule nicely. I've been meaning to post on a reply to your comment on my Nodame picspam gently urging you to come watch with us! Thanks for joining, bb!

Hee, you'll have to sumbit that to the nomination thread, whenever I get it up! I definitely clicked the link and thought "Oh, it's that girl from the Taiwanese Hana Kimi... wait, this is the Taiwanese Hana Kimi!" I really enjoyed the jdrama version, I have no idea how I'm going to feel about the TW version. :)

Haha, I can never resist rewatching Nodame if presented a chance. 8D It is made of too much win and crack! lol

You guys are going to have a nomination thread? :O Cool! I have a couple of shows in mind that I think would be good to watch. 8D

The TW version is pretty good, I watched it first actually so I know how you feel as I was wary of the Japanese version myself before I watched it. The upside to the TW version? Each episode is over an hour long. Bad news? It cuts off in the middle of the series because there was supposed to be another season, yet it never happened. :/

but mostly eeeeeeeeee!!!)
