Casting, storyline, chemistry between characters in jdramas & kdramas are good.
I've only watched one pdrama, and in my opinion, there was little chemistry between the main characters, it seemed like it was too cliche, and someone cried every episode, as well as it being too long.

Because they got originality!! Period!

Anyway, I hate the twist of pinoy drama.. It is always something like this..

*The son/daughter was adopted, so they need to find their real parents
*The main character is rich(guy), so her mother doesn't want the main character(girl) coz she's poor

*They added more characters as time passed by. Over populated na nga ung show nagdadagdag pa?
*Either the plot or the character is not good
*Too much drama! Puro iyakan..
*The lines of the character were messed up! Tipong di mo nmn sasabihin sa 2nay na buhay
*Too long.. Parang 3 taon na yatang pinapalabas di pa matapos tapos
*The characters speak in Taglish.. di nmn bagay prang ganito +OMG, I want that eh, Im sorry, Im so maarte+
*Too much violence were used.. Puro patayan!
*Beautiful and Handsome celebrities don't want to act wacky for comedy... masyadong maarte
*If fantaserye hit, they prefer to make more.. binaboy n nga nila ung Zaido!
*Low budget.. they want bigger profit but don't want to give sufficient budget to make the drama better

Another thing is.. they prefer to make "Remake" of Asian dramas/Mexican dramas. It looks like, that's the only thing they could do.. to copy other dramas..


I'm just telling the truth^^

This YouTube clip demonstrates all the stereotypical conditions that you need in order to be considered a Filipino drama (Ok, it's not an accurate demonstration, but it's good enuff & hilarious LMAO). To the person who listed all those statements above, you forgot about the mean, gold-digging stepmother cliche LOL

I've seen a some Filipino dramas. The story can drag at times and the lighting and cinematography need some work. The dramas that I have seen had some pretty messed up plots in terms that they left me depressed . They've effected me to the point where I'd need to watch something uplifting and comical right after to reverse the effects...LoL.

For those that aren't familiar with FDramas, they aren't bad. They just need more eye candy and feel good plots.

i think fdramas are too long (like latino telenovelas)

some features i note (honestly i have only watched 2 fdramas -.-'')

- thugs working for rich people.
- lots of dramas and crying scenes.
- some bitchy women trying to ruin the lead actor/actress' life.

things i hate most about Filipino dramas that don't happen in j/kdramas:
1) the lead actor dies... but lives again... annoying!
2) when a drama should have been perfect without any sequels, they add a sequel that spoils the story
3) a drama starts with actors a,b,c... and ends with a whole new bunch of actors... they put in a lot of new characters when it's about to end.
4) they're just good at the beginning... a drama starts off with good effects... but towards the middle, it seems as though the producer doesn't have budget for the effects anymore...
5) they lose track of their own story... it's almost always about the ratings... if a drama shoots up the rating scale, they prolong it... until the story (and the viewers) get lost... like the story wasn't planned at all.

WHy are all these Topics related to Filipino pop-culture emerging all over crunchyroll.
I'm a Filipino myself, but seriously it's getting a bit embarrasing.
I bet people from other ethinicites are getting annoyed by it too.

Filipinos are great actors but sometimes dramas are a bit over-board.
Too much action, as in literally.


omg... i so agree with you!!!
every thread is like related in filipino!!
i miss the old forum.. where we can talk about all kdramas, twndramas and jdramas...
im not a racist herre, but everytime im in cr the pinoy thread is all over..

Sounds like your typical drama formula weather it be Korean, Japanese, Chinese, etc...

korean dramas are now being criticized for being repetitous the usual boy-girl hate turns to love story or endless poor girl rich jerk storylines. women are treated like dirt initially before the guy falls in love with her
twd they have no creativity they copy from japanese manga - an embarrassing fact as far as i'm concerned
jdoramas have sex perverts in them
filipino dramas may have warts but don't tell me other asian dramas don't
