Gokusen 3 is the very first JDrama I've watched. I've only watched the first episode and I am really enjoying it. I know I'm rather new to this, but great TV is great TV... The Japanese game shows attracted me to this site, but I think I'll be staying for Gokusen 3 and the community. It helps that the show has a little bit of comedy in it. Are there any shows that anybody can recommend that has a bit of comedy splashed into the show?

The first j-drama I watched was the last one-third of Kokoro. I happened to see it on TV one day before work and the lead actress, Nakagoshi Noriko, really caught my attention - I though she was incredibly charming. The episodes were only 15 minutes each so it was easy to watch each morning while having breakfast before I went to the office.

Then I happened to catch the second half of the k-drama Super Rookie. I recognized Eric from Shinwha and again the lead actress caught my attention (Han Ga In). After watching a few other k-dramas I stopped watching dramas for a while.

I was pretty much just watching what was on channel 18/19 here in Los Angeles and happened to catch Sailor Fuku to Kikanju. While the series was not that great, I really liked Shinichi Tsutsumi so I Googled him. I was lucky enough to discover the treasure chest of drama information that is D-Addicts. That started the ball rolling again and I've been a j-drama addict ever since.

I haven't gone back to k-dramas in a while, they tend to be a little too dramatic for my liking.

My first drama I ever watched was the Japanese drama "1 Litre of tears." Then my first Korean drama was "Beautiful Days" and my first Taiwanese drama I ever watched was "It Started with a Kiss." Even though I have seen many more dramas after that, those three hold a special place in my heart. Especially 1 Litre of Tears! :-)

I've actually already replied in this thread, but then I remembered this Asian tv-series I used to watch years ago. So I started fiercely to google it, and I finally found out what it was. It was a HKdrama Wind and Cloud. I totally had the hots for Cloud, Peter Ho. It was a totally crappy program, but strangely addictive. :D

Post by Sarah Marie » Jul 30th, '08, 19:42

The first one I ever watched was Hanjuku Tamago, which is one that no one ever seems to carry and most people don't seem to know it even exists. It had a young Tomosaka Rie on it, and a young Uchida Yuki. I really liked the series and wish it had been put out on DVD.

It was Coffee Prince. It was the first time that I really intently watched Kdrama, and becoz of it I started watching Drama (but Jdrama instead, hahaha)
For Coffee Prince was also the first drama that I watched it non-stop, from 8 pm until 2 pm of the next day, w/o skipping any shot (some shots were re-watched)
I was quite impress to this Kdrama

I don't remember wich was the absolute first one but i did like in particular. My wife calls it "Sons of Manna". I liked that one as it didn't look so boring like those old softie soaps my wife and mother in law use to watch at their home.

For me it was:

Kdrama: Hotelier (so much better then the Japanese version though the hotel in the Jdrama is one I'd actually love to stay in...)
Kmovie: I can't remember what it was, so it probably wasn't that interesting...
Jdrama: Gokusen...but I happen to be one of the few who like Gokusen 2 better then the first.
Jmovie: The Returner which I liked before I even started watching any other kind of Asian drama or movie.
Twdrama: Romantic Princess
Twmovie: I haven't watched any...

I can't actually remember which was first, so -

Nobuta wo Produce (jdrama). I watched it a couple of seasons after it came out. I don't even remember why I watched it, but I just did. I really love it to this day. And after watching it, I searched for series that the three leads had been in, and it snowballed from there. I now watch at least three-five dramas a season.

Full House (kdrama). Again, have no idea why I watched it. I watched it either before or right after NwP - can't really remember. I do remember liking it a the time. Of course, now that I think about it. . . :lol It wasn't as great as I thought it was. Good, but not great.

After that, I started watching more kdramas and twdramas and was surprised to find that both countries really enjoy 'formula' dramas. :O

1st J-Movie: The Machine Girl

1st K-Movie: Sex is Zero (Ha Ji-won wow..) followed by Sex is Zero 2
1st and last K-Drama: Boys Before Flowers... I wanted to see how it compared to HYD, didn't turn out too well. K-Dramas are too long for me anyway.
