CH3CHO. Thank you for your thoughts (You mean pirate versions? Is it blessing or headache? )
A mixed bag I would say , while I have had the opportunity too watch pirate versions or not, I have also enjoyed dramas so much, I have then purchased the box set. This has also given me knowledge of the who is who of the various dramas from great actresses and actors to writers and directors etc. Which I then wanted to watch more of. An example of this would be Game Of Thrones, I could not access this on my own TV subscriptions, so i watched it on line. I loved it so much I have bought the box sets. I then discovered my father loved it so I bought him the book collection as he loves to read . Then, add in, that some times I do not have time with work and family commitments to spend all my leisure time watching every drama produced. This is where I enjoy (Drama Beans...Amazing writers) they watch it and then they give an episode by episode account of what is happening on a weekly basis as it airs . I read the recaps which they provide and then decide if i want to watch the full series or follow their review of what has happened or put it in my (Watch Later/Buy List) .. I am not some anti japan person or some how pro where ever I am from, nationalist, I would truly love to have access to the Japanese entertainment industry as i have to others . Smalltown...

He is right. I'm a drama fan, Korean and Japanese dramas. The Korean drama community is so large, Its easy to access with an army of subbers , translators and bloggers working constantly to bring the latest dramas to us English speakers, to let us know who is who, what projects are coming up, what is the news daily on the k pop/drama /movie scene. Great sites like (Drama Beans, Soompi, Viki.) and many more, It is so so WELCOMING and FUN.
Japan on the other hand is very hard to access has very few translators and subbers getting drama or j pop / movie news is fractured and hard to find and is constantly been taken down. It just makes you feel like Japan don't care about international fans and we are not important and not wanted at all. I have almost given up looking at entertainment from Japan now and stick to Korean entertainment because It is much easier to find and follow.

Poor young lady. May she rest in peace. I feel so bad for her family to have lost their daughter in such a brutal way. I hope they can find some form of Peace in the future. From all I have read she was loved so much In her life and had wonderful parents and a sister who really was her best friend. Not forgetting the young girl who was with her in Japan and thankfully still has her life. I hope she has a good life and someday can find the strenght to deal with all that has happened to her .
