I've tried this:
"create database abc DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8 COLLATE=utf8_general_ci;"

and i also did:
"create table abc(.....) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8 COLLATE=utf8_general_ci;"

But i still couldn't insert japanese words into my database,
it will become "???".

Anyone know why is that? Any solution?

Thanks
