Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: ?W no Higeki? is an adaptation of a novel by Natsuki Shizuko, which was first published in 1982. It was turned into a theatrical movie in 1984, then got two separate drama adaptations in 2001 and 2010. The new version of the story will have Takei playing two different characters. One is Mako, the daughter of a major business conglomerate. She has always lived in comfort, and as a result, she yearns to finally grasp life with her own hands. The other character is Satsuki, a show pub dancer who lives a solitary and destitute life in a corner of the city and who desires money and power. Although the characters and setting are different from the original, the drama appears to follow the same concept of two women who exchange lives, leading to various tragic events for both of them.
Yet to be disappointed!
This is NOT your every day sleuth, romantic, nor comedic plot. Instead, what you have just stumbled upon is a dark, with a touch of humor, drama. W no Higeki (The W Tragedy) is a story about two girls who look extremely alike in appearances, yet live in extremely different worlds within society and exchange lives. Similar to ‘Prince and the Pauper’, the girls learn to adapt to their new lifestyles. However within just the two first episodes, many events have made this drama thrilling and ‘gasp!’ worthy, making you crave for the next episode.
I’ve watched a wide variety of j-dramas to say that this is definitely worth your time (and I hate wasting my time). So go ahead, join the tragedy..
