I think you should go watch the first episode of Dances with Devils. Make sure you watch until at least the eight minute mark (I don't need to be exact, you'll know it when you see it), and don't read my Roundtable review until you do.
Ok I did finally see it (just couldnt' see it from my phone) and you know... considering I am very familiar with sappy melodramatic K-dramas this doesn't surprise me at all. East Asia loves their sappy melodrama TV shows much like Japanese otakus love their nakige Key animes.
Oh snap, I just insulted two groups of people!
Back to being serious, I can see this being possibly popular amongst the general crowd, but ffs Japan REALLY needs to actually get proper actors being their live-action actors are always f***ing terrible to the point its always intentionally funny. It's impossible to take their TV seriously because of it.
