So, I’m at my friend K’s house for a week, and we sit down to watch some dramas. I show her episode one of A Gentleman’s Dignity because a) it’s hilarious and b) because she’s attracted to older men (not that I blame her). What does she show me in return?
The glorious, glorious man in the image: Etsushi Toyokawa. She started playing his drama “aishiteru to itte kure,” and darn it that thing is darn near killing me. Mainly his role; the chick’s role is irritating. She’s 20-something, but she acts like she’s still 16? Uh….yeah. No.
But MAN this this guy pretty much perfect. He’s there, always when she needs him. He’s sweet, and caring, and always worried about how she looks and UGH. I’m swooning over here. Yep.
If you’re interested in checking him out after this…good luck. Apparently not many people like subbing his stuff. K showed me a film he was in, Inochi, and dear god the subtitles were horrendous. They didn’t make sense half the time, and then they just up and disappeared altogether.
In other words: be prepared to search through the depths of the internet for his stuff.
But you should totally go check it out!
