If you truly love Japanese culture, you probably already know this super classic, super famous, and super being coped by so many comedians clip (see youtube video in the following) from a TV drama series called “101回目のプロポーズ ” (101st Marriage Proposal) aired back in the 90s.
In this scene, the heroin (Yafuki) talked about how she was afraid of losing someone again (because she had a fiance and he died) so she was afraid of falling in love again. Then all the sudden, the main male character “Hoshino” jumped out in front of a track to demonstrate he would not die.
Here is the famous phrase he said right after he almost got hit by a track.
“I will not die, I will not die, because I like you“.
As you can see, even in such a dramatic situation, he still did not use the word “LOVE” but instead used the word “LIKE” !
