it doesn't annoy me that much.....but in some cases, a character is described as having studied in some prestigious university abroad, usually at Harvard, but their english is not that good. this just makes the character less believable. it would have been better if they'd made the character to be from a prestigious asian university....

It always bugged me that in asian dramas whenever they would have an american person in there they would always have the very worst actor they could find. It would be like.. They speak english but their english sounds so forced and scripted.


I definitely agree with this. They get any foreign actor they can get and just give him any role as they believe Japanese people won't know better but as an westerner watching, it's just bizarre and unbelievable.

In Dream Again they had this American play the role of an businessman and it was so false. He looked nothing like an businessman!

NO, it doesnt bother me at all, Yes they have accents because English is NOT PRIMARILY their language...so it's okay Try learning other languages hehehehe..you may be able to speak it, but cannot get the right pronunciation of words in that language because you will have an accent...

the actors when they speak english that mean they are from a country that speaks english (in the drama of course ).but when they speak ,their accent doesnt give the influence that makes the viewer live the scene n sometimes u misunderstood what he is sayin. i think if they practice the language more itll be better n more realistic. anyway this is may opinion n i do believe that is not wrong to talk with your own accent n be proud off coz all of us do on the other hand talkin english (or any other language ) usin the accent of that native speaker is not wrong too..........
