Please select your first, second, and third choices here. The votes will be weighted, so yes all three picks matter! Please make sure not to vote for the same show in more than one place though or I'll have to discount your vote! If you don't want to vote for more than first place, I believe you can leave second and third blank! :)
In case you need a refresher on the choices, I'll repost the brief descriptions from the last round before the poll:
Descriptions pulled from the nominators in this post (which you should check out because there are PICTURES) and the info at DramaWiki.
9 End 2 Outs (Kdrama, 16 eps) "The drama about two friends. Best friends. Who have to live together. Has who I consider the BEST DRAMA MALE EVER. I've recc'd it so many times and the people who did watch it ended up loving it. No stupid secondary characters, no stupid drama, you actually like the characters!"
Atashinchi no Danshi (Jdrama, 11 eps) "Glossy crack by the same people who did Hana Kimi. Maki plays a homeless girl named Chisato, who agrees to marry a guy and become the mother of his sons in exchange from being freed from her late parents' debt. However, a life with these six (odd) guys under one roof will not go smoothly..."
Bad Family (Kdrama, 16 eps) A wacky, hilarious household and people forming offbeat-but-caring families not related by blood! Na Rim lost her family in a car accident when she was nine. After the accident she suffered from amnesia so her uncle hired Oh Dal Gun, an ex-ganster, to recreate a similar household with parents, sister, brother, grandparents and uncle in hopes that she would regain her memory.
BOSS (Jdrama, 11 eps) This series revolves around a group of peculiar detectives in a new division created to fight against an increase in atrocious crimes. Osawa Eriko is a beautiful career woman who has just returned from training (which was actually a form of demotion) in the U.S. and is appointed as the "boss" of this division. The catch? Even though the detectives are talented, they are considered to be the "problem children" of the police force.
Capital Scandal (Kdrama, 16 eps) "1930s Japan-occupied Korea. A love story between a morally-upright, conservative freedom fighter and an apathetic playboy (why hello there Kang Ji-Hwan. You work that fedora like it's nobody's business). There's swing dancing, revolution, awesome OTP (and secondary OTP), assassins. No love triangle, the secondary girl is awesome on a stick... and NO ONE HAS CANCER. One of my top faves ever. Swing, baby."
Fantasy Couple (Kdrama, 16 eps) "This series is based on the 1987 American movie Overboard. Anna Jo is a rude, feisty, and audacious American-bred heiress who can never be satisfied. She returns to Korea only to continue being a controlling wife to her already cowardly husband, Billy Park. When her yacht gets stuck for repairs, she hires local handyman Jang Chul Soo to fix her shower, but when they have a heated spat over her dissatisfaction and non payment, she pushes him overboard. Later, after a quarrel with Billy that threatens to end their marriage, she herself gets drunkenly pitched overboard and falls victim to a bad case of amnesia."
Jyoou no Kyoushitsu (Jdrama, 11 eps) "Yuki Amami plays Maya Akutsu, a sixth-grade teacher who dresses all in black and is repeatedly referred to as "oni sensei" (the teacher from hell), when, in fact, she seems to be an ultrarealist at heart. The drama focuses on a year in her classroom and, particularly, the effect it has on 12-year-old Kazumi--a nice but mediocre student whose parents want to send her to a private secondary school."
Kami no Shizuku (Jdrama, 9 eps) "The story revolves around Kanzuki Shizuku, a young man who was estranged from his father, a world-famous wine critic. When his father passed away, he left behind a wine collection worth a fortune, but in order to inherit it, Shizuku must solve a series of puzzles left by his father to identify 6 wines. His competitor was Tomine Issei, a prominent wine critic, whom his father adopted before his death. A lot more entertaining than it sounds! There is a lot of wine stuff, but the subs provide plenty of explanations--just think, you get eye candy and an educational experience. *g*"
Last Scandal (Kdrama, 16 eps) "Basically this is about a woman who meets her first love after many years. He's a famous movie star (that's lying about his age funnily enough) and she's not the gorgeous girl she was in her youth. Sparks fly and romantic hijinks ensue (she ends up as his maid). It doesn't sound very special but it is HILARIOUS. I was shocked that I enjoyed it as much. And for a kdrama, its not heavy on the angst (it's there but it's not painful)."
Long Love Letter (Jdrama, 11 eps) "The summary at DramaWiki kinda sucks, so: a small group of students and teachers are transported to a POST APOCALYPTIC WASTELAND. How will they survive with limited amounts of food and water, and deal with the various surprises their new environment has in store? More importantly, it has the most adorable OTP ever."
Mei-chan no Shitsuji (Jdrama, 10 eps) "Poor girl grows up making udon with her parents until they suddenly (and as far as I know, completely accidentally) die in a car wreck. SURPRISE! She's the heir to a massive company. Her grandfather insists on her becoming a proper lady, with a proper education, so he sends her to a school where every girl is required to have a super hot butler attend to her. Lucky girl! Her butler is the highly sought after S-ranked butler Rihito. Hijinks, crack, and fan service in the form of very pretty men in tuxes and suits. And Mei has great legs."
Mop Girl (Jdrama, 10 eps) "Kitagawa plays the part of the slow but hardworking Momoko, a low-ranking employee at a funeral services company who carries a mop as part of her job. However, Momoko happens to possess a strange ability. Whenever she comes across the corpse of someone who has left strong feelings behind, she travels back in time to save that person from his or her fate. It's the Japanese "Tru Calling.""
ToGetHer/Superstar Express (Twdrama, 12 eps) "Has been pop star ends up renting a room from a recluse who is in love with a manga character. Rainie is adorable, Jiro's face is epically stupid, and Mars ends up being one of my favorite drama heroes EVER. Also awesome is the fact that Rainie's best friend in a cognitively delayed young man - which is never presented as funny or horrible or "oh poor him." Also also awesome is Mar's manager, who is the MOST ADORABLE GUY ON THE PLANET, I SWEAR. I want to put him in my pocket and carry him around forever! THIS DRAMA HAS EPIC AMOUNTS OF TOUCHING. YOU MIGHT EVEN THINK THEY *LIKED* EACH OTHER OR SOMETHING"
Who Are You? (Kdrama, 17 eps) "A father has recently died and occupies a body of an extremely cold and OCD businessman (played by Yoon Kye Sang! Love him!). More hijinks ensue when he uses this time to spend time with his daughter except the daughter then falls in love with the businessman. It sounds stupid and borderline creepy but...it isn't. It's actually a pretty funny and sweet story. Oh and there are turtles."
Voice (Jdrama, 11 eps) A group of five medical students take on the task of conveying the "voices of the dead." Kaji Daiki (Eita) fails to get into a popular heart surgery seminar but is somehow accepted into a seminar on forensic pathology. When he approaches professor Sagawa and asks him why he ended up in the seminar, Sagawa challenges him by asking why he wants to study heart surgery. Daiki replies that medicine is meaningless after the heart stops, but Sagawa counters that medicine also applies to the dead. And so, together with fellow students Ryosuke (Toma!), Kanako, Teppei and Akira, Daiki begins to explore the mysteries of death.
