An example of another drama I only watched because KAT-TUN members were in it. And probably wouldn't have if they weren't.

The idea was cute, and fun, but a lot of the times I wasn't that amused. I mean this isn't a bad drama, but it isn't the BEST one either. I think if you have time you should watch it but it's not one of those dramas I'd stop everything for read more to watch.

It has a lot of laughs in their along the way, and many strange scenarios. Junnosuke Taguchi playing a swedish guys son was pretty funny, especially with that blond hair, and those blue yes.

In closing this is basically a Japanese version of Scooby-Doo, and if you have some time to kill go ahead and watch it.

Ok I like Kat-Tun so I thought why not watch Jin in a drama? I am glad I did because I certainly wasn't disappointed. Yukan Club is about a bunch of rich kids who like to solve crimes instead of going to class. Each one of them has a special talent or specialty that helps in solving the mysteries or problems of others. This is a feel good comedy with light romance read more and light mystery. The characters learn something new each episode but its nothing that is life -changing. Yukan Club isn't a drama that will make you watch it as a marathon, but is a good drama to watch after a drama with really heavy adult themes. Generally you can tell that everything is going to go well for the characters so it doesn't have much suspense, you can almost always tell how its going to end. As a light comedy its fun to watch and it doesn't take itself too seriously either.

Similar to the idea of having an exclusive place where the members meet.

Both have the same concept of friendship...the look and feel of both the shows is the same...

    isn't this based on a school manga? I swear it rings such a bell with me. So I looked it up and SURE enough!!

    Bages Minami doesn't suit for Kenbishi Yuri role,,

    If I watch this at least 5 years ago it would be as interesting as when I watch Hanakimi, but since I watch it now in 2016, it looks weird but I still got the jokes tho.

    I had dropped this one a year or so ago because it seemed silly but now I'm watching Cartoon KAT-TUN and they keep hyping it up so I tried to watch it again and I'm on episode 6 and EEEHHHHH IT'S SO GOOD

    I wanted to see this for Taguchi Junnosuke, but kept putting it off because it sounded so dumb. Once I started watching I was still skeptical for the first few episodes, but I have ended up really enjoying this. I love Bages Minami as Yuri :)

    It's much, much funnier than I expected. To me it's funnier than Ouran HS Host Club and Hana Kimi. Some parts are silly, but it really had me laughing out loud at a few scenes each episode (unusual for me because I hardly ever laugh out loud at all when I watch a show by myself).
