Never seen one if it exists. Interested though. Anyone know of any Korean or Japanese dramas with a Caucasian (western) actress as part of the main cast?

Thanks.

Given the demographic and modern trends in these countries I would be surprised if you found one. ...but slightly interested to know if there are as well.

Thank you, DarkSasword.

@VeggyZ - So, what's the deal? Why won't J and K drama writers/directors add Caucasian characters into their stories as part of the main cast? It can't be racism. I remember back when I was really into Asian cultures, they would always feature English lyrics in their songs. Almost every popular song had English in it. I'm honestly surprised there aren't any western actors/actresses in Asian television.
