Finished Last Christmas

Well, I just finished watching Last Christmas, the Japanese drama that was HUGE this Christmas season. Wow, it was good.

And you know how when you (this is for you Americans, especially) are faced with a foreigner with a thick accent, and you get told something like, "This is my wife, Yuki," in that accent, it kind of seems more like some non-human saying it? Well, of course it's a human, but like...it feels less real than if another American had said the same thing with their American accent? Well, I don't know about you, but I think I've felt like that before, without really noticing it...

Until I watched the end of Last Christmas, when the lead says, in English, to some friendly Canadians, "This is my wife, Yuki." I had this weird out-of-body experience where something that had always seemed one way to me, seemed completely different. I had this dichotomy of a foreigner saying something that seemed rather...factual...and less emotional, to all of a sudden it feeling like it was full of emotion, since I had just grown with their characters for 11 episodes, AND I speak their language now, as well.

That's all I have to say about Last Christmas
