Engine or Enjin is a series back in 2005 featuring Kimura Takuya, a race car driver who lost his job after an accident.
I kind of like it. It may not be his best JDorama to date, but it was worth watching. I liked how Takuya interacted with the kids. I find the team up of Takuya and Koyuki weird, I don’t feel much chemistry for them.
Synopsis from Engine Drama Wiki:
Jiro Kanzaki is an F3000 test driver blessed with acute sensitivity and breathtaking driving techniques. He’s a daredevil who feels no fear driving at speeds that even top racers dare not attempt. But unexpected trouble forces this world-famous racer to leave his team and return to Japan for the first time in years. Until he finds a new job as a racer, Jiro decides to stay with his parents. What awaits Jiro there is his hardheaded father, his nagging sister, the 12 children of the foster home his father runs, a snobbish male nurse, and a stubborn female nurse who likes to daydream about her life.
Jiro’s return home brings a breath of fresh air that influences the people around him. However, he is still unaware that he too will eventually be influenced to change the way he thinks and lives. — Fuji TV
