Here's my top 5: :D
- Summer Snow (can't help it, it was my first ^_^ )
- Kimi wa Petto (three words: jun, jun, jun :P)
- Yanpapa (such a cute story, and I love Nagase)
- S.O.S. (hated it while I saw it... loved it afterwards...)
- Good Luck (kinda cheesy but I loved it ^_^ )

and here's my favourites which I haven't finished watching yet (felt like they had to have their own category since I might change my mind when I see the end of it ^_^ ):
- Gokusen (loved the manga, loved the anime, loooove the dorama :lol )
- Taiyou no Kisetsu (hate takki, love takki, hate takki, love takki... :crazy: :P )
- Antique (a bit slow but it's still a very kawaii story and the guys are cute... :roll )

Best 5 atm:

1) Love Generation
2) Long Vacation
3) Under the Same Roof 1&2
4) Sekachu (Sekai no chuunshin de ai wo sakebu) + Movie
5) GTO/GOKUSEN (i think they are quite similar just in diff gender role)

There are many more great jdramas, the above A-MUSTSee. ofcourse depending on your pref on what type/category of dramas. I personally like rom-comedy. Wonder why Sekachu on the list because it was so touching and sad that i watched the whole thing non-stop with teary eyes.

Newbie here: anyone recommend a good period drama?

Post by veronasky » Apr 5th, '05, 20:02

Hi! i'm a newbie to this forum, as well as watching j-dramas online.
my mum and i, we love period dramas! we've both watched (on tv in canada) Crimson blade, witness to a prosecution, a step into the past (both of us cringed at that ending *lol*) and most recently: perish in the name of love :w00t: . anyway, recently we lost our local chinese-canadian tv station fairchild tv , and we're both missing the
j-dramas...which is why i'm here .

I was wondering, does anyone know of any period drama's that can be seen via a torrent? (even ones that cant. i'd just love some names) i've been digging around the torrent forum, but i guess i'm a little over whelmed at all of the different dramas available.
no need for a link or anything. as long as that period drama is out there somewhere online, i'll do my best to find it :)

thanks for listening!

Hard to pick....lots to choose....so I'll pick:::

K-Drama: Windtrail (something like that, I kind a forget the title, but the same acterss in sassy girl) it's a must to see...cried hard at the end.

Hopilseung...makes me laugh alot and cried too...

Young and dangerous....gives me the edges feeling (still watching episode 3, I think an HK-drama...not too sure)

What happen in Bali....shocking at the end

GTO....good common sense

and my old time favorite, creid hard and gave me an empty feeling..."Madam Butterfly"

Korean drama - "I'm sorry, I love you"
the acting of So Ji Sub and Im Soo Jung is sooo good, and the story is one of the best that i've seen. every character's motivations are clear and believable, and the ending will leave you shattered..

Similar Dramas to Taste Sweet Love aka Snow White?

Post by bballboi17 » May 21st, '05, 08:05

Hi the only drama that I have really gotten into was Taste Sweet Love. I tried watching various other dramas like EndlessLove/AutumnInYourHeart, SpringDays, Heaven'sCoins, Proposal, Bodyguard... but I never really liked them. I was hoping someone could suggest another drama that is similar to TasteSweetLove aka SnowWhite. Thanks!

Its not really similar, but the person who wrote Taste Sweet Love also wrote Attic Cat, which is fun.
I like both of them though Taste Sweet Love is my favourite.

Have you tried Sweet 18 and Full House? They're a lot lighter than the usual tragic dramas.

Top 5

1. Sekai no Chushin de Ai wo Sakebu
2. Beautiful Life
3. Winter Sonata
4. Tokyo Love Story
5. Heaven Cannot Wait

That is my tentative list, after watching over 100 dramas, it was a hard decision, but these 5 were excellent.

All-time favorites, they are under the MUST WATCH catergory 8) :
- Under the same roof 1 & 2 (Japanese drama)
- The legendary four aces (HK drama)

Top 5 Jdramas at the moment:
- Orange Days
- Forbidden Love
- Water Boys
- Beautiful Life
- From the Heart

The following dramas are what I'm currently watching; they're really great so I think they deserve to be mentioned. Also, it's quite possible that they're going to become my favs. in the future :lol
- Itoshi Kimi E (To the one I love)
- Sekai Chuu (Crying out Love...)
- Mukodono
- Long Vacation

It's difficult to pick out a list of 5 because simply put, I love most Jdramas. They're short and sweet and immensely enchanting.

Why don't we start a new thread and make this into a poll, so that it's easier to see which ones are the most popular.

This thread is too long, and you have to go through everyone's responses.

My favourites:
GTO
Full House
Beautiful Life

There's so many good series that i've watched. Some are just good and some are very memorable. I think i watch something more for the actors then the storyline, as long as there's someone cute then i'll really like the series! Here's my top 5 (and my favourite actor next to it):

1) Winter Sonata - Bae Yong Joon
2) Dolphin Bay - Wallace Huo & Ambrose Hsu
3) Meteor garden - Vic Zhou
4) Love in Aegean Sea - Alec Su
5) Mars - Vic Zhou

too many to name them all, but here's the ones i can think of at the moment that i really liked:
-GTO (jdrama) :lol hilarious
-Heaven's Coin 1 and 2 (jdrama) :cry: so sad
-Golden Faith (or something like that, starring Gallen Lo and Jessica Shuan. hkdrama) :-) dramatic, but not overdone
-The Greed Man (really old, with Adam Cheng, Sean Lau. hkdrama) :x great story, great acting. Cheng's character made me wanna just kick him in the butt though

and currently watching The Rose, which is pretty funny so far...

OFF TOPIC

Sorry if this is off topic, but from what I assume, you have already watched many episodes. I have only seen a few and have a question about the main female lead. She is actually a very beautiful actor, but in the drama she is meant to look ugly. Does she ever turn beautiful in the course of the drama?

are you asking about "the rose"? i've only seen a couple eps. myself, so can't really answer your question, but the drama talks more about her inner beauty so i don't think her appearance will change much throughout, except in the first or second eps, when she gets a haircut...

I may be biased since I only watch Korean Dramas (Save the Last Dance for Me, Stairway to Heaven, Full House, Memories in Bali, Stained Glass & still in the process of watching Sweet 18 (it might soon be one of my favorite), Oh! Feel Young (another might soon to be favorite), Attic Cat & Green Rose. Although I’ve watched Meteor Garden but I never liked it (I’m sorry to all Meteor Garden Fans it’s just my opinion) :unsure: .

The first Kdrama I’ve watched was LOVERS IN PARIS and it made me get hooked to Kdrama’s… It was really awesome!!! I highly recommend this series to all hopeless romantic out there!!!! The ending wasn’t really that disappointing, I mean it’s just different… :w00t:

RECOMMENDED/FAVORITE ASIAN DRAMAS

Post by sacrificehouse » Jul 5th, '05, 16:56

We highly recommend:

Zhan Shen Mars (the only Taiwan drama we like...but our favorite asian drama so far)

Great Story, Script, Acting, Cinematography, Editing, and soundtrack
... there's not an episode wasted -- (warning, it deals with dark psychological themes)

We also recommend:

Lovers in Paris ... fun and light...you can watch it over and over
Full House... fun to watch
Sweet 18...except that the last 4 episodes become somewhat dragging
What Happened in Bali .... just the right balance of comedy and heavy drama
Damo...technically superior; interesting story

Here's the j-dramas that I love the most [random order]:

1. Strawberry on the shortcake
WOW. Just wow. This show was so meant for me, lol. I could connect so well with Manato and the things he was going through. The characters and everything just seemed to fit perfectly with my own life. So I guess that's why this show had such a great impact on me. Very sweet and sad as well.

2. Crying out love, in the center of the world
Liked the movie very much and this drama even more. No, I love it actually. This has got to be one of the saddest shows out there. Each episode leaves me in tears or on the verge of tears to be honest. It makes me think about life and love and all kinds of things like I should live life to the fullest right now. Can't wait 'till I watch the last episode tonight :D

3. Waterboys
The movie is great and so is the drama in my opinion. The bond between the 5 boys seems stronger than in the movie, but I guess that's probably because you watch it develop throughout 11 episodes. A drama about friendship and believing that anything you put your mind to can come true.

4. GTO
Well I guess everyone knows this show. Truely great. There were lots of heart-warming moments and I simply love that. A classic.
