5 Best Japanese Drama For Beginners | Romantic Comedy JDrama

Here is a list of 5 binge-worthy J-dramas for your consideration. These are Jdramas I recommend you start with because for me if from the start I don't enjoy a drama from a culture other than Korean then I might just give up on watching any dramas from that specific culture. In other words I want you guys to enjoy Jdramas from the start. Also most of these dramas are old but better start with the classics then modern. So please don't put aside a drama because its 10 years old , it doesn't change how good it is.
