“Oshin” fan Kit Ou, who lives in Singapore, says the show has eased postwar anti-Japanese sentiment.

A little Japanese girl walks in a heavy footstep in a snowstorm … Many people around the world should remember this scene from a 1980s TV drama.

“Oshin” was a hit not only in Japan but also in 60 countries around the world. It was long before the era when Korean dramas and the movie “Crazy Rich Asians” starring many Asian actors became popular. Global hits from Asia were rare and unprecedented at the time. In some countries, the name “Oshin” became so popular that it became part of the language of the country.

Many people loved Oshin, which grew up in the poor countryside of Japan in the early 20th century. Oshin survives various tragedy and succeeds as a supermarket chain owner.
