japanese preteen golf tv shows

I ran into these Japanese and Korean television shows while surfing the web.  They are like those saturday morning preteen dramas (Hannah Montana, or Saved By The Bell).  I like the special effects they use to dramatize the golf shots.  And of course, the harajuku-esque costume design takes center stage.  Check out this episode of "Hana Pro Golfer", and these trailers for "Birdie Buddy".  If I were up early on a Saturday morning, hung over, and there was no tournament playing on the Golf Channel, I would problably watch these... for about three minutes.  But these shows say a lot about where golf fits into the culture there, compared to here in the U.S.
