Guy here, I was really into anime before but then I moved on to "real" people. But I only watch dramas with idols or cute girls in them otherwise its just weird, good ol dramawiki makes that quite easy to do :D I like romance/comedy or school stuff and I'm not ashamed at all lol (not like there is anything to be ashamed about in the first place)

I'm a guy as well. My friends think I'm a giant faggot, although I can tell they're messing around. I don't really mind though. I started with anime and was then added doramas once some of my girl friends asked me to watch 'em. No shame in it! Romance/Comedy for the win BTW :D

Im a guy that watches doramas as well. There are many series out there that curtails to both men and women. Pride, H2, Kurosagi, etc has all the recipe for a good guy show. Doesn't hurt they threw in some romance in there for the females demographics.

Hello guys. I recommened for You drama:
- ENGINE about car raccer and little romance with Kimura takuya (Pride).
- Double Score - about 2 detective , funny drama with Sorimachi takashi (GTO) & Manabu Oshio
- Taiyou no kiesetsu - romance but interesting
- Rookies - baseball oh yeah cool drama
- Time Between dog and wolf (Korean) but gansgta, police, romance - cool drama

This is J-drama I think for boys

and Movie sports like PRINCE OF TENNIS, TOUCH!, Gangster High (Korean)nor sport.

No! Everyone in here is lying to you to make you feel better...

Nah, honestly, lots of men watch these things.

It's the equivalent of watching something like CSI, NCIS, Smallville, etc in the U.S.

Hell, I've been watching these things for 14 years... and, now-a-days, I'm as masculine as you can get without becoming a prick. :P

LOL! You'd usually find girls screaming for hot male actors. Usually it's not the other way around.

But have no fear! You're not the only guy interested in dramas. I'm not a guy, but I can assure you that a couple of my male friends are quite informed when I talk to them about dramas

I suppose I'll join in! Long time (going on five years) Jdrama fan. GTO was my first drama (big surprise, huh?) and I never turned back. I can't remember what other Jdrama I moved onto, but I've seen a good 30-50 since then. Here's to another five years as a (male) Jdrama fan!

I'm a guy here. Started out watching thai drama since...I was born there. Then as i grew older I started to watch TVB and such. Then to Chinese and Taiwanese. The interest of Japanese drama came from watching animes and reading mangas at a very young age. My dad was a Dragon Ball Z fan. :lol :lol :lol
I got into Japanese drama after I started Japanese language class back in 2001. Then I moved on to Korean drama since my sister's boyfriend is korean and also I was introduce to it when i watched My Sassy Girl.
I don't really like the sad ending ones. I love happy endings and more into love comedy most of all.
I was traumatized when I watched an anime that was so sad that i cried. I was upset for 2 frickin' weeks! :cry: :cry: :cry:

As a dude, I watch dramas too. I do it to hit on girls, especially on my fobby female classmates in grad school. They totally dig guys who watch the same thing they do.

It's true. I'm awesome like that.


Seriously, though. Too many girls in D-Addicts. The guys need to revolt and start a coup. We could form even form a rebel group with an awesome name like Guys Loving Asian Dramas (G.L.A.D.) or Bros Really Entertained by Asian Dramas (B.R.E.A.D.).

And I already have the perfect candidate to be the leader for our rebel force:

Omg. I'm a girl here and even I was wondering the same Q: can guys actually stomach the sappy, romantic dramas that we women here on d-addicts watch? Here's my answer!
Guys, if you watch dramas - that is like a MAJOR plus for a girlfriend who's into asian dramas. Kudos to all of you for coming out and saying so!
If you're a guy and you prefer action/thriller type dramas, I highly recommend Time Between Dog and Wolf. The female is actually secondary to the male for once, but she has a pretty good role in it. I personally, even as a girl, I LOVED it was a change of pace and more testosterone-fueled. Such as dramas are scarce - with the exception of the upcoming "Black and White" (2009).

nope, i don't think so. I'm also a guy and i can say that i'm addicted to it especially the japanese ones. i think because of their diversity, the way they portray it, that got me hooked. Not to mention that japanese actresses kawaiiness is also a joy to watch :)

Just finished watching 'Innocent Love' just yesterday, my macho'ness is at almost 0 lol

Haha nah seriously I love Dramas, particualrly the Japanese ones, I can't get enough of them. (it totally bemuses my friends though, they just go "Oh, it's Japanese? 'Nuff said" lol. But that's probably because i'm a bit OTT with my Japan love with them ^^.

Not really encountered anyone who lives near me who watches these kind of shows as of yet either.

I don't really know anyone besides me that watches dramas though. I go to college and basically the only people I hang out with are asian but... I don't know if they watch them either 0_o

Hi, my name is buk hoo kee and I'm a guy, and I also watch asian drama. Sounds like a rehab group or something. I started watching drama back in 2004 when I became a hikikomori. I have probably watched more drama than most girls, not that I'm proud of that but it's probably true, just have a lot of time on my hands. I don't really have a favorite drama, just a yearning to find the next one to watch.
