Currently Watching: Jimi ni Sugoi! Koetsu Garu Kono Etsuko


Now, who would have thought a proofreading drama would be this fun? On top of that, a total fashionable proof reader? I wish I am her! But sadly though, this recently wrapped drama is on hold. I am not sure when can I see the next subbed episode. Unfortunately, the subber is on hiatus. I am sure she will get back to complete her work. Someday. If not… I might just watch it raw.


Jimi ni Sugoi! Koetsu Garu Kono Etsuko is a 10-episode drama. The drama is about cheery Kono. Her dreams is to work as a fashion editor for her favorite fashion magazine. She has been interviewing with the company a number of times but never landed a job. On her seventh interview, she finally got accepted but was assigned to a proof reading department. It is an un-glamorous department, according to Kono, but she is determined to move up to her favorite department. But for some reason, after her first assignment, Kono started to loving her work! Even more, she enjoys the work so much she even fact-checked on all the assignments landed on her desk! Talk about a switching career! This is a 180 degree change for Kono!


What I love about this show is Kono’s fashion. I look forward to new episode because of her style of clothing. She is so fashionista and she remains this way while working in a not-so-glamorous floor. And I envy her enthusiastic! She is super smart and take direction and criticism superbly. I wish I am her. Hmmm, actually, she has inspired me to dress more daring and creatively recently. Thanks, Kono-chan! *giggles*



So what the next 5 episodes will be? I don’t know. She has been working closely with the head of editing department, Kaizuka. Althought they butt-headed frequently, I think it makes so much sense to ship them together. If you are watching it, I’m sure you would agree with me. If not, that’s ok. But Kono is shown to falling for Orihara instead. He is a newbie in modeling, scouted by Morio who works in the editing department. The trick is Morio allowed Orihara to live with her not knowing that Orihara is interested in Kono. So when she went to Morio’s home, she saw the two of them together! Gasp! So what now?


Well, that’s how episode 5 ended! *cries* And now… the waiting continues! I sure hope I get to see the remaining episodes with subs. I really hope the dorama Gods will answer our prayers. Please please please… *prays*

  1. As you guys know from my posts in various places–I love clothes even though I don’t dress like I do. I also love her character so much. Yes the story isn’t extraordinary, but I like how she tackles her job and how she figures out how to turn around her clear disappointment to something satisfying.

    So what is the rule about subbing? I understand that the person who has been subbing this show has decided to take some time off, but does that mean that the show waits until he/she comes back or can someone take over if the original subber doesn’t come back after a certain period of time?


    • Something like that. Bel said the sub episodes should be available soon. Another person told me that she saw up to episode 8 in Indonesia. If I could get it, I’ll do the honor and translate it to English for all of us.
