Blog about "Smile" - "Japan TV Drama Covers Racism"
Posted 4/18/09
I just watched the first episode of a new TBS drama called “Smile” (スマイル) tonight. The show stars two well-known actor/singers Jun Matsumoto and Yui Aragaki, a very cute girl who first caught everyone’s eye in the Mitsuya Cider TV commercials.

Now, let it be known that I’m not a J-Pop lover, nor do I really like most of what I see on J-TV. But, I have seen some dramas on TV here that have really hooked me in and kept me watching, even anticipating the final episodes. Tokyo Tower and Last Friends come to mind.

Anyway, it looks like TBS has itself a winner here with “Smile”, a drama about a young half-Filipino, half-Japanese man who is falsely accused of a crime in the first episode and taken in by a racist police detective. Matsumoto’s performance as a young man terrified of the consequences awaiting him in Japan’s legal system at the end of the first episode was gut-wrenching and has given me a little more respect for his acting talent.
