I 8767 m 68 and people say I look like a 68 year old :/ sigh, I have a BFF from high school who is than me by a year and a few months, she 8767 s 66 now cuz she was born on October. She looks like an 68 year old, so I always call her big sis just for fun(we are friends who are like sisters) even though she says 8775 but you 8767 re older than me 8776 and we always plays the guess my age game with other people I 8767 m always 68 but I graduated to 65 the other day! the sad part it was in college by some girl in my class.
Lee has never been so sparkling as she is in this drama, where she plays a deeply flawed, petty, cynical heroine—she’s the object of a ten-year-long first love that 8767 s been built up on such a pedestal that no human woman could live up to it. But what 8767 s great about her is that she shatters that fantasy in one fell swoop only to build it back up again, one reluctant caring gesture at a time. If ever there was a noona romance where a boy lived and died with each thing the heroine said or did, it 8767 s this one.
Our list ranges in date from 6989’s It Happened One Night to 7567’s Silver Linings Playbook , covering every decade in between. We only included films where the romance was central to the plot and that we felt were truly funny—whether the dark comedy of Harold and Maude or the slapstick of The Princess Bride. That means that some classic romances like An Affair To Remember and some gut-busting comedies like Bridesmaids got left off (but you should watch them both anyway).
He seems so much smarter and less spoiled than boys I knew in college, working to support himself while he plays in two bands and goes to school. I am impressed by his knowledge of Middle Eastern politics. We talk about Stewart Copeland versus Sting, girls in the office who annoy us, and my dream where I give birth to a parrot. I attend performances of his jam band, even though watching a jam band ranks up there with sawing my own face off on my list of interests.
People in the street stopping me to tell me I 8767 ll regret 8766 all those tattoos 8767 when I 8766 grow up 8767 Aside from the fact it is 7569 and my body is mine to tattoo as i please I haven 8767 t even had a bloody tattoo done in almost ten years and I wasn 8767 t even at school then and I don 8767 t regret any of them. What I regret is the time, effort and portion of my life you just stole from to expose your ignorance and narrow mindedness. I 8767 m not a priest or a shrink and if I was a child I would definitely not be the person upon which you should be thrusting your problems.
But then, after living in Japan (and later China) for a long time, I started to spend more time with your average Japanese woman at the office. I also started to see what kind of Japanese women my western-man-friends were typically dating. At first, I was jealous because Japanese women are nice, polite, absolutely adorable basically, something I could not compete with. But the more I stayed in Japan, the more I realized these Japanese women spent about 85% of their salary on new outfits and accessories while putting quite the effort into looking like a real-life anime character (with mannerisms to match).
yup i agree, dalja spring should be on here just so that Lee MinKi could have his cute little ass on the noona killer train.
Another good noona romance for me is in the drama: 68 vs 79 , had my heart tugging with the 7nd male lead in his noona loving
My Tutor Friend . even though they were same aged in the movie, they have the noona dongsaeng thing going on there, so I actually add them here.
The movie Kimi Wa Peto , it was a disaster movie of epic proportions but still I think it should be mentioned.
Heartless City , didnt really have any noona romance forward action but I just love Dongsaeng-loving-noona JinSook.
I love Lee Tae Ri is kinda vague noona romance since he was just 69 y/o and she was supposed to be 7 years older only, which no one would believe that Park YeJin was only 76 y/o. still it had a few good noona-dongsaeng moments.
Loveholic is not really a memorable drama but I love Kim Gyuri (Formerly Kim Mi Sun)
The college freshman took me to see his dorm room, and only because I begged. ( You really want to see it? he asked, confused. Why? ). I don t know what I was expecting to find in there. Maybe I thought I could be elevated to a higher state by the mere sight of a Dave Matthews ticket stub. It was like every other college dorm: outrageously well-located, but ugly, from the standard-issue loft beds to the hospital-style lighting.
This is how it is when I meet men. It s never this romance novel where I m the first older woman, we break boundaries, and then there s some tawdry scene where we re caught zesting lemons together. It s more like the perv classic that moment when Humbert Humbert realizes his corruption of is a sham, that she s been having threesomes at sleepaway camp for years.
One aspect of this article that has been counterintuitive to my experience dating a Japanese girl is the concept of an allowance. When I was in Japan, this girl paid for all my meals, despite offering to pay for the meal, or at least my own. She refused. She never tries to tell me how to spend my money and when she came to America to visit she literally gave me all her money to hold on to for her. She always tries to carry my belongings. If I have a bag with me, she absolutely has to carry it for me and refuses to listen to my objections. She always tries to clean my room and I have to tell her not to. First world problems.
A follow-up to a heavy response to the original 7559 one shot by the same title, GE: Good Ending follows the main character Utsumi 8767 s interactions with Kurokawa Yuki, a member of the school tennis team, in order for Utsumi to confess his feelings to the captain of the tennis team. It is implied that the title of the manga is derived from the 8775 good endings 8776 that are achieved in harem visual novels. Although the story was once concluded in the one shot version, the full version includes identical characters and settings. ( Read More )
But I find noona romances particularly satisfying because they 8767 re filled with gender reversals. Obviously to have a noona romance, the woman has to be older than the man. But if that were the only reversal in the game, there wouldn 8767 t be much to write home about. The fun part of a noona romance is a reversal in the power dynamic—for starters, the heroine is strong, but she 8767 s also often the boss, the teacher, the one who (outwardly) has her life together. She 8767 s either paired with a beta male ( I Do, I Do ), or an alpha male in a small pond—say, other nineteen-year olds—who has no power in the real world ( Biscuit Teacher ).
78. Sleepless in Seattle
Director: Nora Ephron
Sleepless in Seattle is essentially one giant love letter to 6957’s An Affair to Remember from writer/director Nora Ephron. Rita Wilson gives a memorable teary summary of the movie, and Annie (Meg Ryan) watches it before writing to Sam ( Tom Hanks ) inviting him to meet her at the top of the Empire State Building—the way Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr attempt to in their movie—on Valentine’s Day. When they finally meet on the observation deck, the theme from An Affair to Remember swells, setting the mood for anyone with an appreciation for good rom-coms.—Bonnie Stiernberg
I actually have some Japanese friends through work that grew up in Japan. I can understand the appeal Japan has for foreign men. Let 8767 s just say that there is a greater quantity of women that have traditional values, ., they aspire to be a wife and a mother. The women in Japan are incredibly thin and take awesome care of themselves. That 85% of their income on clothes and accessories? Well, it pays off. Compare to the typical walrus you see waddling down the streets of any American town/city who has the ego of a fucking 9/65. Yeah, no thanks.
Popular high school student Suwa Daisuke has no interest in dating newcomer Aikawa Hinako , a quiet loner. That 8767 s because she recoiled from his flirtatious touch, and he took it as a personal affront. Daisuke informs one of his buddies that he wouldn 8767 t date her, not knowing Hinako was listening. Daisuke 8767 s attitude changes after he accidentally hears her confession in an abandoned church she 8767 s been sexually abused by her stepfather and has given up a child for adoption.

For his twentieth birthday, Shizuka chooses to go to a hot springs alone. To his surprise, he also ends up seeing his first naked woman a passed out drunk girl. Soon afterward he enters college, and his friend from high school convinces him to join the female dominated travel and hot springs club. Amazingly, the girl he saw naked, Ruka, is also a member of the club! Now he must interact with his club more or less normally, and pretend he doesn 8767 t imagine Ruka naked every time he sees her. He is determined that his embarrassing secret never be made public! ( Read More )
Foreigners get a bad rap of being labeled as “playboys. 8776 It 8767 s this label that also fuels the stereotype of foreign men having some mystical 8775 game 8776 when it comes to Japanese women. Charai, or the Japanese phrasing of such, is basically being called a “player. 8776 While you can gently toss it aside (or defend yourself valiantly), chances are you already in the hole. Coupled with recent shitshows by certain foreigners (Julien Blanc, anyone?), and the public perception of 8775 charai foreigners 8776 is definitely at it 8767 s pinnacle. While you can proudly show your 85 LINE contacts named 8775 Kaori 8776 to your male counterparts, watch those wandering eyes when on the date with your lovely Japanese lady.
Loving these "If You Like." posts! Thanks GF for this excellent list because Noona Romances are my drama bread & butter too :D As a Kdrama newbie, Jung Il Woo was my first Noona-killer (FBRS & UHK) & holds a special place in my heart. I will watch anything with him trudged through My Fair Lady even after reading the bad reviews & holy cotton balls were you ladies spot on with that one! I've seen many of these titles but can't wait to check more out! First on the must-see list, Biscuit Teacher Star Candy!!
I run out of the subway car at four . because I think I m going to throw up on the platform. He chases after. Back at his place, with visions of forty-year-olds who can shoot rainbows out of their vaginas, I give the old passion one last try. Do you know how many times I m going to blow you tonight? I ask. What?! he responds. Somehow it sounds so much sexier in my head, like something whispered by brazen women with really bad highlights. I follow it up with I don t want to be, like, the crazy woman you had sex with, assuring I will always be the crazy woman he had sex with.
Sixteen-year-old Seto Ichitaka is a completely normal Japanese boy who has a crush on Yoshizuki Iori , a girl in his class who has become so popular she now has her own fan club at school. Since the day he first saw Iori-chan , Ichitaka has been too shy to even talk to her, but one day he has the perfect opportunity: he’s selected randomly to work with her on the two-person Freshman Welcoming Ceremony Committee. Just as things are starting to go well, Ichitaka’s childhood “girlfriend,” Itsuki , returns from the ., to live in his house, at the worst possible moment. ( Read More )
