June 25, 2011
Cho Reirei, president of the Communication Satellite Broadcasting "Daifu," who has taken an active part between Japan and China as a producer, adapted a popular Japanese cartoon for a Chinese TV drama. It was aired on the Chinese Central Television (CCTV) at the end of May, and was highly applauded in China.
The original cartoon titled "Your hands whisper" by KARUBE Junko is about a Deaf girl who was getting over the difficulties in the daily life. The setting was replaced to China for the TV show.
In China, such a show with a lot of sign language used was the first time.
Cho, a former Chinese student who studied in Japan, said, "The influence that the South Korean drama has had on relations between Japan and South Korea was great. I want to introduce a good work on Japan in China, and to give them a good impression."
