It was 10 years ago that a hugely popular TV Drama called Long Vacation aired on Fuji TV, and launched the acting career of superstar Takuya Kimura 木村拓哉, (popularly known as “Kimu-taku”). The show also popularised the other actors Tomoko Yamaguchi, Yutaka Takenouchi, Takako Matsu, Ryoko Hirosue and Izumi Namori. The drama was about love and relationships and garnered very high ratings because of the compelling storylines. Monday nights became big TV nights as people rushed home to watch it. If you’re at all interested in Japanese pop culture, this is an enjoyable series worth watching.
Everyone who remembers the series will also instantly recognize the theme song “La La La Love Song” by soul singer Toshi Kubota.
