Perhaps a rarity on the internet? I’m not sure but I haven’t been able to find it streaming anywhere so I’ve decided to share this drama directly in these posts. “Hyoten” also known as “Freezing Point” is a 10 episode drama series, this being the 2001 drama …not to be confused with the 2006 two-part “Hyoten” or the original drama series which aired way back in January of 1966 by TV Asahi which starred Aratama Michiyo and Naito Yoko and is noted as having been a success. This 2001 drama series aired here in Hawaii from September 21st, 2008 to its final episode which aired on November 24th, 2008.

So I’ll be posting each episode singly one episode per week every Friday …all 10 episodes here, and this being “Idols♡ Unzipped” on “way back Fridays” makes it a perfect match for this series of posts as former Jr. idol Suenaga Haruka starred in this drama series waaaaaaaay back many years ago. Due to the large size of this video file and my encoding program therefore not being able to omit parts of the video in a desired manner, I’ve chosen to leave the episode as it originally aired here with CMs included.

~A most brief “synopsis” as I don’t want to spoil any of this drama;s intrigue~

“Hyoten”, a drama which delves into the human psyche revealing the very depths of humanity’s darkness, jealousy’s scars …its dire consequences and to what lengths does emotionally charged revenge speak of? The young daughter of Tsujiguchi Keizo, a respected physician who runs his own hospital, is found murdered. Keizo secretly blames his wife Natsue because he suspects her of having an affair with his colleague Murai, and having been too distracted to keep proper watch over the child. Being a proud man, he does not accuse her directly, but concocts, instead, a twisted revenge against her. Pretending it is to comfort his devastated wife, Keizo arranges for them to adopt a baby girl. What he hasn’t told Natsue, is that the baby is the orphaned daughter of the murderer, a tragic day-laborer who has hanged himself while in police custody. He plans to reveal the child’s origins after Natsue has given her heart to the child when it will cause the greatest possible hurt, however…..

    • Dramas provide a nice escape. I hope you’re able to watch this series as I’ll continue to post them here one episode per week each Friday. A good thing is that if your browser gets far ahead enough with the buffering, you can bypass the commercials by moving your cursor above the buffering line and sliding it ahead each time a set of commercials begin =).

        • Most happy to have you along for this emotionally charged drama! Ohh I loved La femme Nikita, a friend suggested it and it was like nothing I’d ever seen before! I also enjoyed the Bridget Fonda remake “Point of No Return” albeit it wasn’t nearly as raw and dark, but still enjoyable.

            I enjoyed point of no return too…so much positive action (and drama of course) 🙂

            But the Luc Besson movie the original La Femme Nikita was and remains a pièce de resistance! All Luc Besson movies and with the music of Eric Sera are hands down!

            Hi MorningBerryz, Check out Peer Gynt, incidental Music Suite, by Edvard Grieg…It’s a beautiful Composition, the second piece in the suite no.1 being Sakura “Cherry Blossom”, Which I hold dear, and most of the composition is filled with romanticism, with beautiful themes, which I hope you will enjoy.
            Also I posed the “Walstein Sonata (Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 21 in C major, Op. 53, known as the Waldstein, with Baremboim at the piano…BUt as I suggested to you yesterday, I find great pleasure and enormous satisfaction listening to all Beethoven’s sonatas, and chamber music. Then there are Schubert, and Schumann and Chopin and Liszt, and so on. I hope you found what you were looking for! Have a blessed Sunday! 🙂

        Oh…My long time favorite: The Moldau, Broderic Smetana suite, Ma Vlast (my land/Country): when you listen to it you can see the Spring and then the river making its way with cataracts, until it grows big, and gets off the mountains, and it’s less furious, it’s wiser, slower, more connected to the landscape (at least that’s how I feel…
