I have separated these blogs by category. Note that these categories are flexible because some blogs will cover dramas from multiple countries, as well as films, entertainment, music, etc . And in case you didn’t notice, I purposely did not mention the “big name” drama blogs simply because I want to focus more on the less well-known blogs. And no, I will not list every single drama blog in existence on my blogroll.
THE JAPANESE BLOGS
- Hamsapsukebe: One of the best j-drama blogs out there, with very blunt and quick reviews.
- Jdrama weblog: Also a very popular and informative blog that provides synopses and upcoming drama descriptions. Also does some recaps for some must-watch dramas.
- Otherwhere: Japanese film reviews, news, and trailers!
- Psycho Drama: Focuses on Japanese films, actors, and dramas.
- Su Loves Drama: This also covers kdramas but I mainly follow this blog for its jdrama posts. I like Su’s taste in jdramas and her posts are a mix of impressions on shows/thought-provoking reviews.
