30-Day Asian Drama Challenge! D-3

D-3


Actress/Actresses that proved you wrong about their acting abilities.
This one was kind of hard, and it took me forever to go through even a fraction of what I've watched the past 5 years to find the perfect answer. My efforts were not invain.

.... wait for it.

Mirei Kiritani !!

Mirei is a Japanese actress, model and news anchor.
(I thought that was pretty cool so I added that in there. She hosts a news show every Tuesday. Fun fact. Lol)
Anyway the first time I saw her was in a Japanese live action movie called Heroine Disqualified during my Kento Yamazaki obsession faze.

Hotness on the left ;)

Within the first 10 minutes you see her act basically like...

a fool.


There's no beating around the bush with this one. Her acting was literally laughable. I know it was meant to be that way but you can be funny without acting like a five year old throwing a temper tantrum when you're supposed to be in highschool.
As the movie went on (I stuck with it for Kento) her many faces began to grow on me.

Then during a deep scene where she finally gets serious I couldn't help but like how cute she was. Mirei can really set the contrast up, I was shocked to be honest. This silly girl knows how to act. Which makes her childish antics kind of adorable.

Yep. I said it.


Adorable.

I definitely recommend looking her up if you need a pick-me-up drama. She'll make you smile with her animated face. She's in this new drama that vame out called Sukina Hito ga iru koto.

(Kento's in that one too!!)

What do you guys think?? Has anyone seen Heroine Disqualified??
Also if you want to join me in the 30-Day Asian Drama Challenge you can find the whole thing here.
Don't forget to tag me so I can see what you guys come up with!

@biancadanica Have you tried KissAsian.com?? That's where I find most of my japanese dramas and movies. All of it is subbed, of course. Also, if you're looking for a good romance movie I would recommend LDK. It's one of my favorites. 馃挄

@JustBrea So, I just watched your recommendation Heroine disqualified and I have to agree the female lead was so adorable. I teared up a little. This was cute and she was so funny! I couldn't stop laughing at the scene where Hataro and the 2nd male lead where at the hotel and she walks out as a guy and says something. I lost it! 馃槀
