Yama Onna Kabe Onne--山おんな壁おんな (JDrama 2007)

Drama theme song

Since AZN back in the 90's stopped showing subtitled Japanese Dramas I have been upset. If I want to watch Japanese dramas, I have to watch them with no subs on AZN or rent them but with Chinese Subs (granted my Chinese is not fluent but enough to get the gist of not complicated plot lines). My dad brought my attention to this drama.

I have been catching some episodes here and there of this drama which I have been enjoying.

I guess I should rent it?

(Thanks D-Addicts forum for this info below on the drama:)

Title: 山おんな壁おんな (Yama-onna Kabe-onna)
Time: AZN 11pm on SUNDAYS (EST) since this summer (In Japan start July 5th, 2007)

Synopsis: Based on the manga of the same title by, Atsuko Takakura. The story revolves around a woman working in a department store Itoh whose meager bust has earned her the nickname of "kabe onna" ("kabe" means "wall" and "onna" means "woman"). Unfortunately for her, a well-endowed "yama onna" ("yama" meaning "mountain") gets assigned to the same department, heightening her insecurity. (from drama wiki)

Information below from wiki-d-addicts:
Megumi is a top sales person at the handbag section of a department store. Many people admire, and sometimes even envy, Megumi for her beauty and outstanding skills to sell products to customers. However, Megumi secretly suffers from a complex: she is flat-chested and was once nicknamed "kabe onna" (wall woman) by her former classmate. One day, a new sales person named Marie joins Megumi's department. Unlike Megumi, Marie is extremely busty as if she's carrying mounds (yama) on her chest. On top of her great bosoms, Marie also has her own special way of effortlessly selling the products to the customers. Though feeling a little threatened by Marie at first, Megumi soon realizes that they have more things in common than anybody else: they both take pride in their career and dedicate themselves to helping their customers. Through numerous obstacles, Megumi and Marie foster special friendships with each other. --
