feb25Soap operas are long TV dramas that air in the afternoon. They feature a lot of romance and drama. Characters fall in love, get engaged, get married, cheat, break up, and come back from the dead. A character might have an evil twin or get amnesia. They are called “soaps” because they traditionally had a lot of commercials for cleaning products.

「Soap opera」とは昼の連続ドラマです。ロマンスやドラマチックなハプニングが盛りだくさんのストーリーです。登場人物が恋をして、婚約して、結婚して、浮気して、別れて、死んだ人が蘇ったりもします。分身が現れたり、記憶喪失になることも。「Soap」という名前は、もともと洗剤メーカーのCMが多く流れていたので、そう呼ばれるようになりました。
