jdrama: Welkame

If not all Jdramas are good, how about asadora? Even taiga drama in NHK had some bad eggs. For example Hana Moyu, na kahit sobrang galing ng cast, its just boring at sobrang bagal. 

Ilan episodes na lang!!! After watching the 148 plus ones, eh salamat natapos na kagabi at nakatulog pa ko. How I discovered this one? Noong tinignan ko yun  list ng asadora due to my curiousity sa wiki. Siyempre 90 plus yun at malamang halos lahat di ko kilala, some nagulat ako may mga sikat ngayon or di masyado sikat na may asadora. The lowest rating ever, is this, Welkame. At mukhang wala pa nakakatalo. hahaha
Paano naman kasi.. Ang daming flaws or not good about this asadora. Factors that I can made the ratings low and I was surprised na asadora siya. I survived finishing the 150 episodes of it, great thing, 15 mins lang siya. hehe

First of all, anak ng tinapa.. Why the story was not really interesting? I mean, nagsimula siya na takot yun batang Nami sa “kame”, turtle in japanese, tapos nainspire magsulat kasi nakita niya yun editor in chief then yun na start ng story. Pero may mga moments na dramatic or talagang malas si Nami, pero di siya kung baga, serious enough para icheer or yes.. Root for. Grabe, sumakit ulo, parang yun ibang parts ng story parang kulang sa drama, or even fun. Kahit RAW yun napanood ko, eh bakit yun Teppan, natuwa ako. hehehe Raw talaga yun almost all episodes.

Second, siyempre kung di masaya or interesting yun kwento, bland yun most of the episodes, kasi naman, wala naman nangyayari milestone sa buhay niya. May ibang important events pero di naman important, for example, yun friend ni Nami na nanganganak na.. Aba parang 2 weeks din yun ha. Umay. hehe Marami pa yun. Lalo na sa mga bandang gitna ng story. Grabe, kung pwede lang fast forward. hehe

Third, setting is nice pero yun setting ng ibang place, parang ang compact. Kung baga, yun bahay ni Nami, lagi napupuntahan ng family niya at yun resto na weird yun set up.. Parang naisip ko, bakit pa lumipat si Nami kung most of the episodes eh from office to their own house/inn eh nakakapunta siya. hehe Basta naisip ko, well kung malayo talaga di ba, pero sana may time na talagang alone si Nami like other asadoras, kaso bihira lang yun.

Fourth, yes, ang bagal ng pace. I mean, most of the episodes, I did not focus on it kasi kahit ma miss mo yun dialogue, eh parang wala naman namiss. hehehe Nag pick up lang siya, last 5 weeks of the asadora. Poor thing. I was also expecting na sobrang marami magbago pero wala in the end, simple lang yun ending. I think to blame for these poor factors, eh yun writer and director. Geez.. Di man lang naging interesting yun story or even dramatic.

Siyempre, not all fails sa asadora na ito, some things helped kaya natapos ko ito. Una sa lahat, eh yun cast kahit ganun yun story, ok yun cast. Maraming characters dito na ok lang. Other than Nami, yun fave ko supporting characters eh yun family niya, yun husband niya saka yun ex president ng magazine na pinagtrabaho niya. Dalawa pala sila. hehe Lalo na yun italian na nakacast dun, galing maghapon. hehe Nakakatawa yun isang week na nagsuot ng mascot si Nami para mapromote yun Hotshin, grabe, naging comedy yun week na yun. hehe Yun effort nandun, lalo na yun father ni Nami. Yun artistang yun, serious sa ibang jdrama, pero dito, laid back na tatay. Ayos siya. hehe
Second, ok yun vibe ng story. Kahit mabagal at boring, fun siya at some moments. Dahil nga wala masyadong serious events, fun yun mga ibang episodes at interesting din like yun setting nila sa beach saka yun ano ano pinaggagawa ng family ni Nami and yun hotshin magazine. Puro inom at kain lang ginagawa. hehe At siyempre work din. Saka kahit papano yun love team ni Nami and yun naging asawa niya, may fun moments, lalo na yun first time nagkita sila after maghiwalay sila nung bata pa.  Oh, Third reason I like this one, yun intro song niya, one of the best. Hirap nga hanapin sa net. Bad trip. hahaha Cool and light lang yun kanta, kakaadik.

Lastly, ang primary reason kung bakit ako nagtagal dito.. Kurashina Kana!!!!! I have no idea about her, pero nung nakita ko yun ibang jdrama na kasama siya.. I was curious, pag tinitigan mo matagal, maganda siya. Well, checked on google, ayun na. hahahaha Naadik na, kaya kahit panget yun jdrama, I need to check her out. Miss Swimsuit 2006 right? Hmmmmmm hehe. At lalo ako nagpursige panoorin at pagtyagaan eh may gravure vids pala siya bago mag Welkame, after those 2 videos.. I don’t care watching the crappy show basta makita siya. hehe Bad trip sa asadora na ito, balot siya and her hairstyles for 148 episodes were not nice. Pinapanget siya kung baga. Bad trip talaga. Tiyaga na lang!!! hehe Not even one episode na pinakita yun curves niya. Naman. hehe

Well, ok naman siya actress and sa welkame, siya naman nagdala although blame the production crew, sulit to as jdrama or comedy jdrama siguro pero as asadora, sayang lang talent niya. Pero pag ngiti niya or any reaction in her face.. Sulit na sulit. hahaha I can’t believe na NHK made some gravure models or great looking actresses na mag asadora. It’s a risk pero most of them did not do well, like Eikura Nana’s Hitomi or Natsuna’s Jun to Ai na mukhang ok naman. Unfortunately, the lowest rating, goes to Kurashina Kana. Malas naman niya. Darn..

Anyway, hmmmm worth watching again? I’ll just save it na lang for Kana. hehe Yun pre show episode na lang panoorin ko ulit. hahahaha

Welkame! Not a typo error.
