Tamiou Ep 1-6
Tamiou or king of the people is a body swap dorama about the Prime Minister of Japan swapping bodies with his useless son.
I was basically watching this for Endo Kenichi, Motokariya Yuika and Takahashi Issei. (Gonzo reunion!)
Tamiou is surprisingly watchable due to the fact that Endo Kenichi gets a lot of screen time with his useless son. (or is it the other way around)
Body swap doramas usually have both characters operating in their separate stories so more Endo Kenichi the better and its got the mystery of who is responsible for the body swap. Not to mention the reveal in episode 3.
While Tamiou's got a lot of funny moments, its got a lot of scenes where I just skip like the foreign minister and the bloody kids. I don't have many complaints about Tamiou but I just don't feel compel to watch any further episodes. (Or maybe I'm just thinking too much about Metal Gear Solid everyday and it would take a really good show to get my attention.)
