Residential Complex was a really hard-hitting Japanese drama that had a lot of deep and complex storylines. Japanese romance dramas tend to be very standard, and they do not touch on a lot of difficult and delicate topics.
Residential Complex was the complete opposite of most Japanese dramas, as it touched on topics such as infertility, same-sex relationships, parenting style, and step-parent/child relationships. In Residential Complex, there are 4 different households who live in the same apartment building and share a common space.
One of the couples is having difficulty conceiving, which leads them to try different methods to try and get pregnant; another couple is an openly gay man with another who has not come out yet; the third couple is dealing with money issues and how to best raise their children; the final couple was not planning on having any kids, but an accident causes them to reconsider.
While there are still a lot of happy moments within the drama, it is also much more heavy and non-traditional format. All of the storylines are good though, and it is clear that the director was trying to address important topics through the show!
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
