Friends is a 4-episode South Korean-Japanese short drama that aired in 2002. It was produced by TBS (Japan), and MBC (South Korea). This was the first time in drama history that the two countries collaborated to co-produce the show in both South Korea and Japan. It was originally broadcast on February 4–5 in Japan and February 15–16 in South Korea.


Tomoko, a Japanese tourist, and Ji-Hoon, a South Korean film student, meet in Hong Kong. Despite a rocky meeting and their language barrier, they become good friends. In time, they eventually head back to their respective countries but only after exchanging email addresses – promising to keep in touch and eventually meet again. But with fate pushing them to see each other again, Tomoko decides to go to South Korea to meet Ji-hoon again but some problems occur.
