I would love to see a season two of Itazura na Kiss, Love In Tokyo (ie, something similar to They Kiss Again) or Skip! Beat. I absolutely adored TKA, and think that the J-drama would do it justice (since they pretty much hit it out of the ballpark with Love In Tokyo). Skip! Beat followed the Manga, and as such didn’t really have a satisfying ending (the Manga is currently ongoing). I think a second season where the leads were able to realize their attractions/Dun He Lian’s past can be revealed (what was up with the blond kid flashbacks?)

I would like to see a 2nd season of Faith and Hana Kimi (Taiwanese version). Faith because I loved the drama so much I just want to see more of what happens with the characters and their lives afterwards, and Hana Kimi because it was an awful cliff-hanger ending—I want to know what happens with Rui Xi and Quan!!!

  1. Totally agree with Itazura Na Kiss and Skip Beat. The ending to Skip Beat, as you said, wasn’t really much of an ending at all might tie things up. If a manga is still going when they make a drama, I think the drama writers should just make up their own ending.

    Greengrassjelly – I’ve read a lot of bad things about Faith, and decided never to watch it. But you say you loved it. What did you like about it?

    1. agreed! Since they’re never going to make a second season (or it’s highly, highly doubtful), they should just end it on a good note 🙂 We never even got to see them kiss 😦

    2. Caitlyn–i have been mentioning Faith a lot since i recently finished it, so that isn’t to say it is without fault. nevertheless, like i’ve mentioned, i am a huge fan of period dramas so i really like Faith, but what’s special about this one is the presence of both modern and traditional medicine (which i find interesting), and how it brings into question/has undertones of ethical issues such as what are doctors’ responsibilities and what are soldiers’ responsibilities (while tying in time traveling/the butterfly effect). i really liked the dynamics of the main characters (killing vs. saving/healing), and the internal struggle of Choi Young (Lee Min Ho) as he’s questioning his upbringing/loyalty to his king. i think the ending could’ve been better/the king/queen’s relationship could’ve been better developed, and some episodes towards the end kind of dragged, but as a whole, i really liked the drama. hope that helps 🙂

  2. Yes, for Skip Beat! That’s the problem with ongoing or realllly long mangas being made into dramas, you just can’t do them justice or end well necessarily.
