I'm not J, but I agree with all the positive comments re Hioryuki and Lost. I don't like the negative comments about Japanese actors and Hollywood. I admit to never having seen any houga (except some of the classics like Rashomon subtitled). But I can guarantee the producers of Lost didn't create a Japanese character just to sell DVDs. The concept of Lost has involved many cultures from the very beginning. Personally, I think the brought in a Japanese character because Lost is primarily about history, and NOT just "Western" history. Japanese history is a rich motherlode for the Lost writers. Remember, there is an important reason for the Egyptian statue on the island, too. And a Korean couple have been major characters from the very beginning.
