There are soo many dramas hehe where should I start??

I'm Sorry, But I Love You
Best sad drama without an happyend. A drama that is full of emotion and great actors, and a sad, but at the same time meaningful ending that leaves the watcher with a deep impression.

Thank You
In my opinion it is one of the best dramas that has a strong and deep storyline, has great actors (not to mention that little girl). God Thanks it has a happy ending

Princess Hours, My Girl & Full house (sorry can't part them)
YEah Yeah Yeah a lot of people don't like them, well but I still loved them. I know there are a lot of better and funny dramas but still they have captured my heart.

The Book of Three Han *Jumong*
Best ancient drama strong followed by Damo

Wonderful Life
Well the only reason why it has to be on my list is..... the little Shin-bi (little jung da bin). I hate it when little kids cry and if the kid is sooo sweet then it really breaks my heart. Well it is just that, that little girls made me cry soo much that I had to stop the video for an half hour until I could continue to watch it. I have never cried soo much in another drama before

This is a mission impossible! I have a lot of k-dramas that deserve the top 5 but if I really have to choose...

1- Goong, forever. I can't stop watching it, i know every word, every single expression (especially Joo Ji Hoon's ones X°D)
2- Coffee Prince & Dal Ja's Spring (i love both, i'm not able to put one before the other, sorry ^^)
3- My Girl (love at first sight with Lee Dong Wook, and Lee Da He is sooo cute <3)
4- My name is Kim Sam Soon (Hyun Bin was so young but already soooo sexy *_* The storyline was really really super-good, I can't imagine this drama with another actress in Sam Soon's part, Kim Sun Ah was simply perfect.)
5- Biscuit Teacher & Star Candy, I've loved this drama. Love Gong Yoo <3 I work in a school, i can say that if i will ever see a student like Gong Yoo i'll surely fall in love with him in an istant *_*

i agree tat this is a mission impossible as i hv quite a number of fav series.. but here are my most fav.. the ones dat made it to Top 5.

1. Beautiful Days- Lee Byung Hyun indeed is superb in here. You can feel yourself being touched by his acting and he made his character come to life. I would never ever get tired of watching this one.
2. Age of Innocence- Park Jung Chul played an incredible role in here. You can't help falling for his selfishness in love and at the same time feel sorry for him.
3. Rival/Opponent- Kim Jae Won's role as a gangster here is better than in Great Inheritance. You can feel his pain, joys & laughter as he tried his best to protect the love of his life.
4. Lawyers- Another awesome drama especially the story line as it keeps u wanting to know more. Kim Sung Soo plays a double role here. You were not sure if he was the bad guy or still the same guy who tried to protect his girlfriend from being hurt.
5. What Happened in Bali- Superb acting by Jo In Sung, Ha Ji Won & So Ji Sub especially In Sung. Love can be such a scary thing especially if you are a possessive person.

where do you guys watch My Girl? it seems to be the average top favorite drama but I've not found a torrent anywhere :/ I just gave On Air another chance and watched second episode out and realised the backstories of every character is nice and juicy so hope to enjoy that one now :) but would love to two-time it with another drama aswell :P
ainawy wrote:what are other kdrama's that are on the same line as lovers ?
I can't think of much either :U7 but I like the theme aswell! love kitano's yakuza movies (meaning most of his movies). for a few korean movies just saw A Bittersweet Life though, spot on your topic and spot on movie even though not a drama series :) might also enjoy Running Wild. I liked it alot and iirc it's more of a cop film? or were there gangsters? (heh and My Wife is Gangster 1 and 2 are good :P)... maybe also Daisy (set in europe though).. as for non-korean.. for hk close to topic Confession of Pain and Infernal Affairs (esp. 1st one) are very good.
then there are yakuza in the chomical jdrama Utahime, don't think it's quite serious enough to mention though x¨) I also want more maffia dramas :3 hope for future

1) My Girl - lee da hae is absolutely gorgeous and funny and lee dong wook is pretty good eye candy as well. The story was played out very cute and didn't drag at all. An enjoyable, fun and uplifting series.

2) Goong - really, who can dislike yoon eun hye. she's the perfect princess to joon ji hoon's prince :) a bit long at 24 episodes, but worth it because I think their story really needed those 24 eps to tell.

3) Soulmate - a very real look at modern relationships (except for the 'reading her thoughts' part of course) and it was interesting how everyone tied in together. Really funny and touching as well. Someone said it's almost like a korean version of sex and the city and I wholly agree.

4) What Star Are You From - jung ryu won was ridiculously lovable as the quirky, fun and loud bok shil and offset kim rae won's arrogant and tortured seung hui wonderfully. the story isn't anything that original or new but the 2 leads were great and i liked how there wasn't anyone inherently evil manipulating them. a very fun series.

5) Que Sera Sera - another real look into modern relationships and how the choices we make effects the people around us... some pretty funny moments but also serious. Not a fluff piece but a very good one if you can handle the issues they deal with.

I'm in the middle of a few more that I'm really liking but can't quite boot my current top 5 for them just yet..:

1) Dalja's Spring - have heard endless great things about this and it's looking good so far. The main girl is so funny and Lee Min Ki as her hot younger man is quite appealing.

2) 9 End 2 Outs - The beginning was wonderful but the middle is dragging a little bit. I've heard that it picks up again in about the last 7 episodes or so, so i'm really looking forward to that. I think the 2 main characters have great chemistry as well, and I love the idea of childhood friends who have stayed friends for 30 years finally discovering different sides of each other... it's all about the timing :)

3) Full House - i know i know, this should have probably been the first kdrama I ever watched as it seems to be the first kdrama everyone else has ever seen.. but i started the craze a bit late (this past year and half) and haven't quite caught up to the old classics yet. But as I have heard countless praises for this show, I'm pretty sure it'll be in my top 5 soon... or maybe i'll have to extend to a top 10 list haha...[/quote]

4) Full House
5) Biscuit Teacher & Star Candy

Tree of Heaven was also extremely good, the first drama I cried while watching, so moving. I didn't even cry when I watch Stairway to Heaven or Autumn Tale. So I think it deserves some recognition. :-)

i suppose i don't really have a 'top five' but some of the series i really enjoyed were:

time between dog and wolf
sassy girl chunhyang
the legend
a love to kill

most of these series are a couple of years old. i've kind of been watching episodes here and there for a lot of the newer series so i haven't made up my mind about newer series but.....dalja's spring, powerful opponents, and the devil can potentially go on this list

: A long daily drama, but worth every episode due mainly to the energy, talent, and eternal cuteness of Goo Hye Sun!!! :wub: (I lied, this one actually is my favorite! Also because of another cutie and former Nonstop alumnis: Lee Yoon Ji :whistling: )

Thank You: Due to a smaller, but equally talented, much younger lady; eight year old Seo Shin Ae; The best child actor in the business. :cheers:

Vineyard Man: Because I can't limit a list of five to three dramas featuring the uber talented, cute, charismatic, versatile, universally popular.....Yoon Eun Hye :roll , I'll settle for the one with the best ending and the most beautiful screen image of our "young girl warrior." :P

Really Really Like You: Because I need to include one that features the angel come to earth that is Eugene Kim! This one and Wonderful Life both also have little Jung Da Bin in them who is a smile waiting to happen for anyone in need of a lift. :D

Winter Sonata: The straw that stirs the drink (and every emotion known to human existance) and the series which is most responsible for sending the hallyu wave from South Korea to the rest of the planet and whichever other life beings in the universe who may be tapping into our satellite waves. Great scenery, acting, soundtrack, and the alluring Choi Ji Woo. :heart: :thumright: :thumleft:

Even after having said all of that....I've yet to meet a KDrama that I didn't find something to like about. As for the televison produced in my own country... :glare:

1) Time Between Dog and Wolf: is absoltely perfect. A must see in my opinion. Lee Jun Ki proved that he can actually look like a man, when he wants to. Unexpectantly good ending.
2) Delightful Girl Choon-Hyang: is the best comedy. Better than My girl, waaay better than Full House. Attractive leads, great supporting actors.
3)Hong Gil Dong: has the worst possible ending. But I loved it anyway. It is super funny in the beginning, it is sad, romantic and serious towards the end.
4)Goong: is an ultimate fairytale. Yep, it is rather cheesy. And the the whole politics issue was as boring as hell(and I usually love politics).But it has Prince Yul in it - my favourite 'the guy, who didn't get the girl' ever.
5)Spring Waltz: is the best romance. The interaction between two leads is soo touching. Bravo to whoever directed it.

P.S: haven't finished watching Iljimae yet. But I feel that it is going to make it to my "top 5"

Top K Drama

Post by adira » Oct 31st, '08, 06:01

Of all the K Dramas that I've seen (all of which are romantic), these are easily my favourites.

1) Soulmate
So sweet, funny, really great and memorable characters, plot + awesome

2) 9 Ends 2 Outs
To date, this is my favourite 'living together-romance developing' drama; can't help
but get a crush on the lead guy... so cute :D

3) Lawyers of Korea
An adorable, feel good drama, with one of the most AMUSING characters that I've
seen in a while- Han Min g**k you will always be in my heart XD

4) Iljimae
Who can resist Lee Joon Ki's adorable smile and dashing heroic ways? A great
heart-racing 'Robin Hood' story in my opinion

5) Dal Ja's Spring
Amusing at times and moving at others, I really liked the dynamic between the leads

Other recommendations... My Girl, Coffee Prince, When It's At Night (ongoing), Get Karl! Oh Soo Jung, Love and Marriage (the guy in this is seriously adorable XD), Miss Kim's Million Dollar Quest.

1.Prince Hours-
I know everyone just hate it but i just simply love it... :mrgreen:

2.Pure 19-
Although i really hate the character of Goo Hye Sun (Hate the story of her love with Park Yun Hu too.) but i REALLY REALLY REALLY love the story of Hong Ugyeong and Park Yun Jeong ,and actually Park Yun Jeong this character has become my favourite character. :P

A good mixture of happy and sad parts. :thumleft: :thumright:

My top kdrama probably won't match anyone's list since I come from a very unique position from the norm of this site.
#1. I tend to like historical kdramas
#2 I've watched a limited number of current non-historical kdramas ie winter sonata, full house
#3 I've watched a couple of kdramas of the 90's, and yes there were some good ones in the 80's and 70's and beyond
#4 I'm holistic in my tastes for good drama (good storyline, action, characterization, romance,humor element, historical or social backdrop, universal appeal to the human condition, etc)

Some of you may be familiar with "Emperor of the Sea" , "Damo", or the popular "Dae Jang Geum"
Even still, some may even know "The Immortal YI Soon Shin" and "Age of Warriors" or even "Emperor Wanggun"
So I'm biased in that respect, but here is my all-time favorite list

Think Leo Tolstoy or "epic" when you consider this list:

1. "Moreshige" or Sandglass (setting in the 1970's to late 80's, under Chun do Hwan regime)
2. "Yeo-myoung-eui Noon-dong-ja or "Eye of the Dawn" (setting from Japanese colonial period to Korean war)
3. "The Immortal Yi Soon Shin" (set during 16th century Choson dynasty)
4. "Emperor Wangun" (towards the end of Unified Silla period to Koryo)
5. "Dae Jang Geum" (cira early 16th century)

distant 6. "Apt" ( an early 90's kdrama comedy that starred Choi Jin Shil who recently committed suicide this year)
She was a big star in the 90's

I would give anyone here a million dollars ( figuratively speaking) if you know all of the dramas I mentioned. But I'd give you 2 million if you've watched the first 3 on my list.

I guess it's not fair because in the 90's for instance there weren't things like torrents, downloading, subtitled dramas in language of preference, and of course the Korean Wave. :) I would say too bad because many of you missed out on good quality dramas.
