Anyone willing to provide a brief description on Korean or Chinese or Japanese drama? Any similarities to the drama one might watch out where I live (USA)? I might want to check some foreign shows out, mainly because I like to get a taste for all forms of entertainment and see what I like best

Well, while I was in Korea, I watched quite a few. Given I couldn't understand a word, it was slightly entertaining to try to understand what was going on. They seem like typical love triangles and stuff like that. They aren't like American soups though with all the backstabbing and totally ficticous stories from what I watched. I think I saw an episode of Days of Our Lives with aliens in it. I did get to watch some movies on the flight there with English subtitles. They make some cool movies. I saw some movie called Oh! Happy Day or something like that. The main character was totally hot as a bitch. Matterfact, alot of girls there were hot as a bitch. I think I want to move there. It's alot like Japan I think except minus alot of wierdness. And they lack any great sports cars. I guess I'll have to import some car if I do move there. They have some huge tariff though. On the plus side, they do drive on the left-hand side of the car like sane people.

Hey guys it been a while! I know we are talking about Korean dramas. I'd like to put my two cents in. Have any of you watched "Meteor Garden" aka Hana Yori Dango? Its a Taiwanese drama. I got addicted and started watching Peach Girl Taiwanese drama and Orange Jam Boy (Marmalade Boy).

Yeah, I recently saw "Meteor Garden" aka Liu Xing Hua Yuan. It's pretty good, although I have to admit that the 2nd part to it was kind of crappy for a few particular reasons:


SPOILER

1.) Tsuyoshi's character got too close to the princess and they had such great chemistry towards the end .

2.) Hua Zhe Lei got hurt too much, I just wanted him to end up with ShanCai.

3.) Not enough of the other 2 F4 members.

As for chinese dramas, they are not as good as the Japanese and the Korean dramas IMO, they are tend to be short, some times as short as 20 episodes, the Chinese dramas that people mainly watch are mostly from Hong Kong and Taiwan, because they always feature 1 or 2 superstar as the main characters. The chinese dramas from mainland are mostly based on Chinese lengends or the Chinese history, which makes it less popular. One of the Tawainese company always make shows that are based on manga or comic books(i.e. Meteor Garden), but they are not always good.

Korean dramas are always about relationships, because the Koreans really enjoy this kind of drama, so you might find it boring since almost every single serie is about the same thing. Korean movies, however, is totally different. Korean movies are comedies and they always fun to watch.

Japanese dramas are the most enjoable amongst the three. Japanese dramas are known for love stories again, but they are hilarious also, unlike the Korean dramas that only focus on the relationships between the characters. Sometimes they make shows that base on popular mangas.

If you want to start watching foreign show(especially asian shows), I strongly recommend you to watch the Japenese dramas, they are fun to watch(with translations and subtitles of course) and some of them have a really good storyline to follow. i don't recommend Chinese dramas/shows as they are short and the main selling point of them are the superstars. I do not know as much about Japenese and Korean dramas as Chinese dramas, so I might be wrong, please correct me if I made a mistake.

korean historical dramas

I read the post from Qwerty1092. I agree that "Tears of the Dragon" was spectacular. Does anyone know if it is possible to get that series on DVD or even VHS?

I don't want to dissect aeolian's post but I disagree with him on a few points. Maybe its because I mainly watch Korean and Chinese(or to be specific, Hong Kong dramas) as opposed to him mainly watching Japanese dramas.

I have watched quite a few Korean dramas that would adhere to most sterotypes of the typical weepy Korean drama ridden with heroines that are either blind or cancer striken and I'd like to point out there that I dislike such drama and refrain from watching them.

Most of the KDrama I watch are romantic comedies, and when they do get weepy it is not overdone.

Series I highly recommend:
My Girl
Totally hilarious at the beginning. The heroine is extremely engaging due to convincing and natural acting. The plot is alright but its the acting and comedy that shines. If you are a girl, there is a high probability that you will fall in love with the second male lead. As I did.

Resurrection
Intrigue. Its a slow paced drama, so if you're the impatient and the all out for action type it might not be for you. The acting is good but the romance can get draggy. I love how well the drama is filmed, the colour is vivid and crisp.

Don't kill me for this but I've actually become more interested in kdrama than anime.

I'm not sure whether posting the DL site for dramas is allowed... if anyone is interested please PM me.

There actually is. It's based on the Japanese manga by the same title.

You do know you're responding to a post from 2004... also Full House was based on a manhwa (same title but was created by a korean author) by Soo Yon Won.

Okay, that was a bit of misinformation that I had. (No wonder I suck at K-Dramas: I don't watch any dramas)

Greetings and Felicitations to One and All,

I’m Xeke Xander, and I’m new to this forum. This is the second time to try this post or this is the re-write of my first post, I could say. I don’t mean to be rude or to change the subject but … Before you cast dispersions on all Korean drama/sci-fi anime-like live action series in general … Might I suggest, "She Came Back."

I recently came across this series while searching for anime. Admittedly, the only reason I even gave it a look at all was the incredibly beautiful leading lady ... I didn’t get her name. The show didn’t harp on the sci-fi or science aspects of cryogenics ... Which remain controversial at best, but instead they concentrated on the human aspects. What would the “ice lady’s” problems be once revived ... as fart as being “out of her time” and all. The only film maker that comes to mind that could make a “tear-jerker,” (not quite the right term), like this was Mike Landon. I can’t get this show out of my mind …

Now don’t get me wrong the subs are really bad and at times down right infuriating but despite that the casts and the acting kept me coming back and wanting to know what will happen next. Will she get back together with her, (now 25 years older than her), ex-fiancé … or … get together with his son (what a nightmare situation!)… Will she self-destruct … Decide to just start over or what? I have found the premise, the writing, the acting and the cast simply captivating. I would have given good odds against it just from the promo. I would give it a 3 ½ star rating … That’s down from 4 stars because of the lousy fansubing.

Like I said, this is my 2nd and last attempt at talking about this show … An unexpected find, to be sure but good none the less. I hope that one or more of you will at least check it out … Or give me a recommendation for a show that you liked because I enjoy discussing anime and Asian films in general.

As always …

Good Journey,
Xeke Xander

You should watch Dae Jang Geum (Jewel in the palace). At first I thought it would be pretty lame since my mom told me to watch it, but no, it was actually pretty really good.
