- A repeat customer
I totally love this section. This is my second Name That Drama request. Thank you for helping me out with the first one.
The drama is a crime/mystery drama. I only remember this scene: There are serial shootings in public areas, the first being in a park. At the end it’s revealed that the killers are not serial killers but are taking revenge on their boss for firing them. In order to cover up the murder, the killers decide to practice on other people and cover it as a serial killer scene to divert the police. One of the killers was a trained shooter.
Please help me with this. I don’t remember at actors at all but just this case, since this episode is inspired from Criminal Minds, the American TV show.
- Turn around and name this movie
I can’t seem to remember the name of a Korean movie I saw a few years back. I don’t exactly remember the plot, but in the present, she is working and runs into an old friend from high school. Somehow, she gets transported back into the past to when she was in high school, but she is still her present age. And I think she helps a guy become more confident or something like that. But I know for sure that he dances to Deux’s “Turn Around and Look at Me” near the end of the movie. If anyone knows the name of this movie, I’d really appreciate it!
- Beanies can always help
I need help finding a certain Japanese drama.
I’ve always remembered this one scene because I thought the actress was the prettiest crier I’ve ever seen. She received a distressing call while walking home and was so distraught she dropped her bag of strawberries on the ground… or was it a cake with strawberries? She was on a footbridge of some kind and she immediately dropped to her knees sobbing with her hand over her mouth… the strawberries littered all over the place and cars going back and forth beneath. I think someone broke up with her or cheated.
I want to say Takuya Kimura was in it, but I’m not sure. I think it’s a drama from the late ’90s maybe early 2000’s.
Not sure if you guys can help, but thanks for trying.
- Okay, but if we name it for you this time, don’t forget it!
So the ending of the last episode has the daughter of the main couple saying something like, “And that was how I was born!” because her parents had just made up and were kissing or something, super cute.
The daughter had cancer, so a lot of it was the parents (who weren’t married) struggling through dealing with the illness and their really broken relationship.
I’ve been trying to find this drama on and off since middle school (so like, eight or so years now). I think I found it once and promptly forgot before I could watch it again.
- Two cancers in a row? Oh right, dramaland
My friend was telling me about a drama she saw several years ago, where the child was born by accident because the parents had a drunken night. They were strangers at first, but they do end up falling in love because they come to find out that the child has cancer.
I don’t know how I could have missed the name of the drama. It sounded really heart wrenching when she explained it and I really want to see it! I hope you guys can help me with this vague explanation!
- And they say chivalry is dead
Years ago, when I first discovered Korean television dramas, I watched one where the aunt/sister(?) of the lead was in an elevator with the uncle/relative of the other lead. The uncle/relative was a little eccentric and the aunt/sister didn’t care for him.
But while they were in the elevator, she farted and he (in one of the most chivalrous acts I’ve ever witnessed) pretended that he had passed gas and begged her pardon. She was so impressed that later in the series they began to date. Please, does anyone recognize this scene?
Thanks for playing, everyone — till next time!
