Hanayome to Papa ep 1

How does a cute girl like her end up with a boring dad like him?

One thing I've learned is that if an actress wants to look older, they'll change to a wavy hairstyle as seen from this show and Joudan Ja Nai. Hanayome to Papa is basically a father daughter show with Tokita Saburo as the overbearing and controlling father and Ishihara Satomi as the 20 year old daughter who longs to to be free.

Shiraishi Miho! Years ago she was this unknown actress in Beauty or Beast and now she's like THE supporting actress in jdoramas. Maybe I should dig that show out to watch...

Main attraction of this show for me is Ishihara Satomi as an OL. And I must say, she looks even hotter as an OL than as a nurse in N's Aoi. Not to mention we have Shiraishi Miho and a trio of beauties to play the supporting role of OLs! What's not to like about this show?


Firstly, there's the problem of the campy acting. While its not as bad as Kira Kira Kensui the lack chemistry between father and daughter means its more annoying and not even funny. The only actor I would think suitable for this show would be the king of campy acting, Sorimachi Takashi except he's not old enough to have such an old daughter. Or get Nishimura Masahiko. I think he would be a hoot as the father. Or better yet, if they could afford it, get Akashiya Sanma.

Helloooooo ladies...............

Bottom line, the actor playing the dad sucks. Any gravure idol can play the daughter but the dad has to be able to ham it up without causing the audience to fall asleep. The father has to make all the fighting entertaining like in Oyaji. The father must have this hint of vulnerability to make the viewer sympathize with him.

Ishihara Satomi fondling her chopstick...

Maybe they show will get better. If N's Aoi proved anything, its that Ishihara Satomi cannot carry a show by herself. All she has is her cute face, thick lips and B cup oppai.

Haha Nishimura would've been good funnier as the father, but maybe he might be too sly and sleazy looking to be realistic. lol

I really hate the phoney over the top acting in this show. But the problem lies with the weak script. And I don't see it getting better.

It would be fun because he would look sly and sleazy. Like the father in Attention Please who was obsessed with air stewardesses. :)

I think this show sucks. I can't say that it's the father alone, but he definitely sucks. She's a cute girl and all, but I just don't notice that when the show is so bad. Shouldn't been a show about incest...haha. U know Japanese do that good.
