Recommendation on a good action and/or martial art Drama?

Post by c101 » Jan 8th, '07, 23:17

I really love action, it's really hard to find a decent tv drama that I havent watched. I've seen Chinese Paladin, Yang Clan...I know I've seen other bug I would have to see the title for me to remember lol. Anyway Recommend away! :)
(currently downloading: Loftly waters verdant blow not sure if it's good )

Start off with the king of all martial arts films: Come Drink with Me

And then work your way through the dozens of other Shaw Brothers films....

Then why the hell are you posting in the general discussions forum? You should be posting in the Chinese drama discussions forum. We don't talk about TV dramas in the general discussions forum. Drama can also refer to motion picture movies, regardless of whether or not it can be downloaded from D-Addicts. So post in the proper section, or edit your earlier post to indicate "TV drama".

For the simple fact that I'm asking about the 3 kind of drama japanese, chinese and korean. And I did askabout action not just martial arts so it's not restricted to chinese tv drama. No need to get on your high heels man. :)

And honestly films don\t last long enough.

Can someone recommend dramas with really attractive female main characters? I've seen Full House with Song Hye Kyo and Densha Otoko with Itoh Misaki, both of whom are stunning. Want more, thanks :wub:

INTENSE DRAMASS<33

Post by happy3nding » Jan 29th, '07, 18:04

does anyone know any really intense romantic dramas that you can share with me =p
i really want to watch a good drama =[ =[ but it feels like i cant find one.
heres some really good examples of dramas i already watched so far,
if you havent watched them you should =] =]

-Hana yori dango <33 most intense drama ever!!

&&&&

-It started with a kiss so romantic!! [although i stop at ep 17.]


those 2 were the only intense dramas i've seen.
but i've watched others like
"summer snow"
"goong"
"my lovely samsoon"
"my girl" etc.

they were awesome dramas but i didnt find them really intense..you know what i mean? =[

Romantic intense dramas... Spring Waltz is the most romantic dorama ive seen ever, anyway i havent seen a lot of "romantic" doramas, cos i dont like a lot them, my sense of "romantic" are sad histories with good or bad finish, like Sekachu Taiyou no Uta Orange Days Densha Otoko etc etc... anyway, k-dramas are generally more "romantic" than j-dramas, j-dramas are more nice histories with love in middle, but with tons of things more.

generally, i don't think Korean dramas are very intense... usually the romantic, melodramatic ones are slow-moving. i haven't seen a very good romantic kdrama recently, but there are plenty of romantic comedies. i mostly watch kdramas, and i can't think of any good examples right now.

sorry, not much help here. i would agree that Hana Yori Dango is pretty intense, but i can't really think of anything else that is similar.

I've also seen some of the shows on your list--HYD, MNIKSS, Goong...


Right now I'm obsessing over the HanaDan Returns b/c, you're right--it's incredibly intense.

This month, I also whipped out a drama that I started over the summer, but never finished because now that I'm in Japan, I've been trying to only watch Japanese stuff to help my vocabulary/pronunciation/hearing/etc.

This drama is from Taiwan and it is called "Devil Beside You." It stars Rainie Yang, who also sings the image song for the series.

I've really been enjoying the series and think...it isn't the same type of "intense" that HanaDan is, but it has a lot of tension and angst and stuff going for the characters. There are even sub-plots with the other characters. I've been enjoying it a lot. Tonight, I hope that I have time to watch the last two episodes since I didn't have time all weekend! (It is fourteen episodes long.)

It is based on a Japanese manga. An all-time favorite drama is "Mars," which is also from Taiwan and also based on a Japanese manga. I initially watched it b/c I loved the manga. They did a REALLY good job of transitioning the show to the screen and to me, the show has a great intensity that has catapulted it into the favorites category.

Next, I'm planning to watch Kimi wa Petto and Nodame.

I'll let you know how those turn out.

G'luck!

Hi! I'm looking for some recs for any shows out there that are a good mix of drama and comedy. I really like Hana Kimi right now if that helps narrow down what I want.

These top 5 lists are great, but I don't know which ones are very series or intense and which ones are kinda loose and funny. Any help would be much aprreciated. You could even PM me your advice! ^_~

Water Boys 1 but there ain't no high quality subs yet. Just VCD-ripped I think.

Nobuta Wo Produce is one of the BEST!

What else, hm. Attention Please with Aya Ueto?

Yea attention please is a good one too.But I think Nobuta looks more alike with Hana Yori because it's kinda "school drama "
And yea the complete batch of nobuta has subtitles.

You should check out this thread :
http://www.d-addicts.com/forum/viewtopic_10397.htm
It's for recommended and fav dramas. It has lists of them. And then if you want specifics just look them up on the Wiki.

This thread will probably be locked by mods soon because the above thread exists. But you can find a lot of variety up there. Check out the other threads that are in the General section and the FAQ threads as well since you are new: http://www.d-addicts.com/forum/viewtopic_16502.htm

So far my faves are

1. My Lovely Kim Sam Soon (My Name Is KSS) - Hilarious and touching! Excellent Acting and fun all the way around!

2. Hana Yori Dango - Can't get much better than this! Romantic, funny, well acted! I have watched this 3 times already and it is still great!

3. Kimi Wa Petto - I loved this one! It is cute and fun. I laughed a lot and completely enjoyed the story!

4. Love Letter (the KDrama not the JDrama ) - This made me tear up so many times while watching it. It is beautifully done, well written and performed. Very romantic and intense.

5. Gokusen - This is just fun all the way around with a dose of sweetness!

6. Densha Otoko - I just love this series! Opposites attract and their fight to get together. It is funny, cute, sad and just wonderful!

my faves r....well there's a lot..

here they r in NO PARTICULAR order:

:w00t: THE BEST OF THE BEST :w00t:

Gokusen. japanese the last epi of that made me cry than any of the drama did at one time...i cant get enough of sadawa shin... :wub:

meteor garden/hana yori dango chinese/japanese the classical standard good drama. (my first real good drama) lai/rui is my favvy character in all dramas.

it started with a kiss chinese SO CUTE AND ADORABLE! it's a must watch 4 sure. ariel is actually ok in this one....i didnt like her character in love contract and tokyo juliet...this drama is what brought me back from my phase of not watching dramas

Hana kimi chinese this is my fav manga...the first one that i've ever finished (in terms of manga) the plot and characters are pretty good...tho they should have picked better actors 4 some of the characters *cough mizuki cough the psychic dude* i luv the doctor, sano, and the guy who thinks he's gay in this one tho.

goong korean SHINNNNNNNNNNNNNN!....love him to death. haha and i never liked yul from the start. it's really really good.

full house korean rain is ADORABLE in this. he's adorable when he pouts. hah........


:lol THE OKAYISH OF THE BEST :lol

again. in no particular order.

my girl
romance in the rain
pearl princess 1
mars


:-) OKAYISH ONES :-)

these r ones that r...okay.......not the best...but not the worst either

heaven's wedding gown
prince turns into frog
devil beside u
lavender.-it's a bit worse that okayish shrug it was my first drama


:x NOT VERY GOOD ONES :x

meteor garden 2-it TOTALLY AND UTTERLY ruined it 4 me. the only thing that was good was that lai was so lovable in this one

At the dolphin bay it was so damn crappy

autumn tale they DIE. what more do i need to say?

:thumleft: CURRENTLY WATCHING :thumright:

hana yori dango 2-SO MUCH BETTER COMPARED TO MGII. i'd say this belongs in okayish of the best catagory

hana kimiin the best of the best catagory

Well.... i havent seen a lot of doramas, but the japs are my fav. The doramas ive seen are Densha Otoko, Summer Snow, Sekai wa sore wo Ai to chuusin de (however it's name), Sapuri, Engine, Pride, Orange Days, Nobuta wo Produce, My lovely Kim Sam-Soon and Spring Waltz (ive also seen but abandonated cos they sucked Hana Yori Dango (u will say omfg wtf?! XD), Full House, Anego and Tatta Hitotsu no Koi). I recommend these:

Densha Otoko - Different, special, funny but romantic and with great message. Must see. My first dorama, and the one special in my life 4 some reasons.

Sekai wa sore... - The saddest dorama ever, since the beginning u know how it will finish, but anyways, u will cry until the extenuation. When i saw it, i was in love, so it was more sad, if its possible. Im going to see 1 liter of tears for compare them and see what is the saddest of the two.

Sapuri - It's not a good dorama, cos history at final sucked, and the actors have a good name but doesnt do well their role, only who saves is Kazuya Kamenashi. But its one of my favs cos my dream is become publicist, so a dorama of publicists rules 4 me XD and here appears my loved Miho Shiraishi <3

Orange Days - Best dorama ever. It has everything. See it and u will understand it.

Nobuta wo Produce - The last ive seen, Ive finished it yesterday, and it has been the nº2 of my rank (after Orange Days). A childish students history shows a fantastic message, emotions, good and bad tastes, love, friendship, etc etc. Must see. Also the actors are great.

Engine & Pride are nice, different than the standar dorama, but nice to see, interesting, more human than normally, and starred by Takuya Kimura, great actor. Spring Waltz and My Name is KSS are the only kdoramas ive seen, theyre nice, specially Spring Waltz, but im not kdrama fan, theyre too long and heavy for me, so i cant say must see.

(pretty biased)

1 litre of tears (sad and even though i've read that some don't like the 'extra' character nishikido ryo played- i watched it cos im a ryo fan and he was good in that.. and of course, sawajiri erika was not just a pretty face lol but good show, il strongly recommend it! unless u detest anything thats remotely sad.. *but there's ryo! cos i started out not wanting to watch anything sad... but im glad i did! hehe)

GI (because i am in love w sekki :wub:) - yes, sekki is nishikido ryo

gokusen 1&2- matsujun, shun ; akame, teppei, etc -- it got a little lame with the storylines somewhat repeating itself but its all just good fun, laughing, etc.

dragon zakura (i LOVE teppei as well hahaha) yes im really biased lol but it had funny, sweet moments as well. :)

hyd 1&2- romance, comedy, cool cast- yeah! :D

kurosagi- yamapi :wub:

There are several recommendation threads in existence already that can e used to ask for recommendations.
This is the general "catch-all" thread for asian drama recommendations, but there are similar threads within each of the C/J/Kdrama Discussion forums if you want to find something more specific to a country/language....

Thanks

well I posted this in the other thread but i dont think its very active so...

I would really appreciate some help choosing what drama to watch next! My favorites are Gokusen, Kimi Wa Petto, and HYD 1 and HYD2. I usually watch school romance/comedy genre. Thanks in advance, i'm sort of new to the whole drama aspect, and so any suggestions are appreciated! :-)

what will I watch next?

Post by freezspirit » Mar 19th, '07, 21:37

It got me thinking since Goong S just finished (albeit waiting for subs to complete) and Hana Yori Dango etc what next to watch?

So I thought I would ask you what next to watch? I'm not that fussy? Although I do like comedies. I don't mind what audio language it is in would strongly prefer english subs (either soft or hardsubs) Also prefer under 20 episodes around 10-16 mark is ideal otherwise I find the storyline drags on or loses the plot completely.

To start it off I was thinking of watching the following although not 100% sure what do you think, give me your show suggestions too:

Japanese

Hanayome to Papa - start April
Oniyome Nikki - currently watch will continue
Himitsu no Hanazono - currently watching will complete

Korean

Witch Amusement
Salt Doll
Billie Jean, Look at Me

Taiwanese
Exchange Love

Singaporean

Parental Guidance

Dramas about figure skaters?

Post by ednamay » Mar 23rd, '07, 17:03

I've got a weird question to ask: is there any Asian drama that involves figure skaters? I mean characters, not actual figure skaters doing parts.

does it have to be centered on the figure skating? Love Queen (a twdrama) has a character in it who is a figure skater.

satorare was a funny one too

and best drama comedy that makes u think out loud haha

cuz its about a rare human which anyone could read his thoughts and who wants to become a doctor but is prevented because he would reveal medical secrets u wouldnt want to know

it has a mixture or romance, seriousness, wow moments, inspirational moments, and times that test how would pple view you if pple could read your mind itself makes it comedy

i think its genius and i want to make a film just like it

Ah as for my bad judgement i didn't realise it will be very annoying to se what serie i meant since it was hidden between all the **** writing.

Best Dorama:
-Stand up!

1. Dae Jang Geum (aka. Jewel in the Palace) (K)
2. Beautiful Days (K)
3. All About Eve (K)
4. My Name is Kim Sam Soon (K)
5. Spring Waltz or Autumn in my Heart (aka. Autumn Tale)


I do watch alot of K-J-HK and some Taiwan dramas.

I usually favour K and J-dramas to HK and Taiwan dramas...and although I like J&K dramas..the reason my top 5 is dominated with K-dramas is cos they seem more meaningful and remain in my memory for long as a good drama...most jap dramas I watch I do really love them but very soon after I'll forget just how good they are probably cos its not so sentimental or cos its much shorter (episodes)...but K-dramas have more 'impact' on me! HK dramas are only good when that one 'big' drama appears...99% of dramas are rather crap but the 1% that shines...really overwhelm me like 'Lok Sun', 'War & Beauty', 'Threshold of an Era' etc.

I'm looking for dramas I haven't seen actualy that are very dramatic.

I don't particuly mean "disease related" dramas like Autumn Tales.. More like impossible love. Like Tokyo Friends.

1 litre of tears japanese drama is very good and very emotional.The story is about a 15-year-old girl called Ikeuchi Aya was an ordinary girl, the daughter of a family who works at a tofu shop, and a soon-to-be high schooler. However, odd things have been happening to Aya lately. She has been falling down often and walks strange. Her mother, Shioka, takes Aya to see the doctor, and he informs Shioka that Aya has spinocerebellar degeneration - a terrible disease where the brain gradually deteriorates to the point where the victim cannot walk, speak, write, or eat. A cruel disease, as it does not affect the mind in the least. How will Aya react when told about her disease? And how will Aya live from now on?
This drama is based on a true story, i reccomend every1 2 watch this drama.

For Jdramas, definitely Hana Yori Dango.
The 2nd season too, even though it wasn't as good as the first.

&Nobuta wo Produce. <3

loved my girl.. and devil beside you (mike he makes the hottest devil..didnt like him so much in love contract..haha) im likin game about love.. but havent finished it yet. hana yori dango turned out to be good even though i hated it in the beginning cause those dudes are uuuuglllyyyyyy hahah. smiling pasta was good.. and stairway to heaven even though it dragged on forever and is a tearfest haha. and.. thats my favs for now? haha oo ya peach girl.. even though the chick isnt that pretty haha

one drama i will hate.. DETESTT.. hOORRIIFYINGLY.. is autumn fairy tale.. i DONT care what anyone says.. even though theyre not blood related.. what if they never found out? would they still end up doin each other or somethin? its just grossly nasty.. they grew up together for 13 years or somethin as BROTHER and SISTER.. and had other awesome people who loved them.. well not the brothers girl she was a lil freaky scary stalker.. but the guy was so good to the sis.. maybe thats why i didnt really enjoy full house.. same chick freak haha

My Faves

Taiwan:
Mars
ISWAK
Meteor Garden
Devil Beside You

Japanese:
Kimi Wa Petto
Hana Yori Dango
Forbidden Love

Korean:
Full House
My Girl
Princess Hour/Palace

Most disappointing:
A love to Kill (loved it until the last 6 episodes)
Love Contract (again, love it until towards the end, it lost something)

For me
K drama
1. My girl love the storyline and i think that the two main character have very very good chemistry..Funny and u can cry in some part too
2 Goong or princess hour even though it was really boring in some part but the joy u have will overcome the boring part
3. My name is Kim Sam Soon..Funny and cute at the same time

J drama
1. Love revolution it is kind of old drama but love it...i dont see a lot of storyline like that in jdrama..The main is so cute.. he is staring as the love rival with Yamapi in Operation love
2. Nodame Cantabile...Funny and the two main actors r so good together..love the music in the drama too..make me want to learn how to play piano
3. Hana Yori Dango..even though i am not at all the fun of Jun but still it keeps me watching..the remade of Meteor Garden is not bad at all... Totally in love with Rui again..but this time is Oguri Shune..lol
4. Ok right now..i am watching Operation love...with Yamapi in it...up to now i really like it..yamapi is so cute..and the storyline just keep me watching but we will see how they will turn out till the end...

TWdrama
1.Smiling Pasta...The acting is good and the storyline..the kind i like...romanctic comedy but i am totally in love with it..even though at first the main is not so attractive but in the end u will find him totally cute..
2. It started with a kiss After so many good recommend..finally i watched and i did not disappointed at all... cant wait for the sequel though
3. Mars..This one is different from other drama ..cause it deals with intense stuff but i think that this one is one of the best drama of Vic..He is totally handsome in it...Barbie and Vic really hit it of on screen and of course off screen too...lol
4. Hana Kimi..Love it ..so funny..at first i got disappointed to see Ella as the main actress but after all u will get over and u will accept that this role is really perfect for Ella... WuZun has developed his acting skill since Tokyo Juillet too...however i just hate hate the ending....how come they can end the movie just like that...others has already warned me about it..Still i continued to watch and finally find the ending is so lame though....

Ok to sum up most of the drama i like it is the romanctic comedy kind of type drama so if u like this kind of serie u wont like all of the drama i recommend though...lol

They don't get locked, they get merged into to the pre-existing threads dedicated to asking for and giving recommendations. If everybody was able to keep their own threads asking for recommendations, this place would be overrun with redundant threads. :fear:

1 Litre of Tears can be found at Jpopsuki's tracker.
Otherwise, there are a lot of school Jdramas, but most romances seem to focus around characters in their 20s, and not as much in the teens...
Ones I can think of off the top of my head that actually involve characters in school (and are subbed):
Kamisama mou sukoshi dake
Sekai no chuushin de ai wo sakebu
Itazura na Kiss
Houkago
Strawberry on the Shortcake

FYI, since this request is asking for dramas irrespective of language, I'm merging this into the general recommendation thread...
