Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: In the Edo era during the reign of the third shogun, a mysterious smallpox epidemic affects males only, causing the number of males to plummet to one-fourth of the population. The roles of males and females are reversed. Women run businesses and politics. A young girl takes the seat as the heir of the shogunate and becomes first female shogun. She is Tokugawa Iemitsu (Tabe Mikako). When Iemitsu turns 16, the pure-hearted Madenokoji Arikoto (Sakai Masato), who heads a temple, is threatened and forced to return to secular life. Together with his disciple Gyokuei (Tanaka Koki), he becomes one of the 3,000 handsome concubines that wait on the shogun in the inner palace.
Best historical JDrama
Historical JDramas tend to be boring for me. However, after watching 3 episodes of Ooku, I love it! The plot is interesting, the flow of the drama is just nice and the acting, is great!
Masai is great in this role!. I like him in this character. I also watched him on "Legal High" and disliked him then. I am now his fan.
The theme song, "Deepness" by Misia is awesome too.
P.S: This is my first comment on any drama here. I don’t usually bother. ^^
