In terrestrial channels, "All In", starring Lee Byung-hun and Song Hye-kyo, is shown once a week on NHK since April 2004. Nihon TV presents 'Secret', starring Kim Ha-neul, Ryu Si-won and Ha Ji-won, every morning from Monday through Thursday. On top of that, 'Sad Love Story' is on Fuji TV every Saturday afternoon.

As for the broadcasting stations across the metropolitan area, Tokyo MXTV presents 3 dramas; "Love Letter", 'Yurihwa' and 'Did We Really Love' once a week. Meanwhile 'Happy Together' and 'Beautiful Girl' are on Chiba TV and TVK, respectively.

The KOFACE (Korea Foundation for Asian Culture Exchange) adds that NHK consecutively airs 'Dae Jang Geum' and 'First Love - 1996', on its satellite channel in the evenings, and similarly the prime time programming for Korean dramas is increasing.
