I love kdrama..ahah but I like certained ones. I mean ALOT of ppl enjoyed Goong and Full House, but I found it REALLY boring.. on the other hand, I LOVED Coffee Prince bc of the cast, facial expressions, fashion, and of course bc of COFFEE ahaha..it does depend on one's interest

I depends on the viewers. I have Filipino and Japanese friends who prefer watching Kdramas than Fdramas or Jdoramas because of they appeal to more mature audience, emotional characters and attractive cast.

But FOR ME, I prefer Jdoramas and TWdramas over Kdramas.

like seriously! i have ALOT of friends that r like obsess with korean dramas while i find them pretty boring..
i mean i'ts not like i've never given it a chance! in fact i given it PLENTY!
i've seen my girl which i was able to finish till the end ONLY cause i found lee jun ki to b quite a hottie
i tried goong, the drama that everyone's crazy over and i found i VERY boring
i watched full house, realy at 1st it was very good but towards the end it dragged ALOT
i started watching coffee prince but couldn't take it anymore after the 1st 1/2
then i watched a love to kill and the start of the drama just made me shut off my pc
and i really find the krean dramas very original and has no creativitiy!
it's always about poor/werid/optimis girl meet rich/mean/cold hearted guy
and another pair of guy & girl trying to break them up! it's like wat the hell!
\can't they have love tringles? or just 2 people in love?
and why does it always have to have the main 2 character start of hating each other then in the end likeing each other? tha'ts just getting old!

i'm not sure if all korean dramas r like this but that's wat i got fromt eh one's i've seen
so i was wondering is u can suggest GOOD kdrama for me that i might actually like
i heard they are making a korean version HYD. god i hope they don't mess it up!


i would like to recommend the following :: first, watch, bad love, then, yi san, then lovers, phoenix, then jumong, then legend.....these are one of the best...not your usual girl meet boy another girl/boy triangle...it has more in-depth and story...some are historical..but i found historical dramas more satisfying than the modern ones....

to answer your question: i guess because all of us who watch asian dramas wants to relate to the story...it's our way of relaxing by fantasizing (ex. if i am the girl..oh so love to have that boy as bf or hubby, or i would solve it this way or that way, etc.)...dramas become our escape route with our boring life...that's why films earn a lot...because people buy it to escape from their daily routines....

i love kdramas the most because of the actors and storyline..if u dont like either one of them then there is no point watching and of course u wont like it...
they make it like a fairytale because its so much better than real life...isnt it? thats also wat the audience want to watch..its so much better than the american dramas..i find the american dramas super boring and have dumb plotlines..i mean they like killing each other all the time

first,, korean movies have good plot,,
even in comedy...
their stories are like fairy tales that happen in real life...
you can relate on it..

korean drama are way 2 dramatic!
thats why i prefer jdrama more than kdrama....

but da reason some people really into kdrama is bcoz they think that love stories should be like one in the drama..
give me a break!!

i mean..the guy isnt neccesarly have 2 be rich+arrogant+ended up falling 4 the poor girl....
all kdrama's plot are repeated over and over again!

in real life...they are no such dramatic love stories...
wake up!

hehhehehe.....
this is only the piece of my mind..
no offense!


thats what we,who love kdramas,love .... idk .... but we seem to enjoy the same plot ...
and i think its their dramas are very realistic ....
sometimes... when looking at DVD covers of jdramas .... it kinda gives me a headache !! hehe ..
my friends force me to watch jdramas.... i never will !! cuz ... im taking korean lessons and what if i get addicted to Jdramas ?? that would be a waste of money !! hahaha ...

well anyways ... some people really loves different dramas ... some korean some taiwanese .... and most ... JAPANESE .... there are even hong kong dramas !!

i seem to like kdramas because i want to be apart from other people .... i want to be unique !!

hehehe .... it seems that im writing too much !!
lets just support asian dramas !!
aja aja hwaiting !!

I used to like it, but now, not so much because the stories are the same, 2 girls who like the same guy and one of them has cancer or 2 guys who like a girl but the girl has leukemia. I mean come on! So thats why im watching jap dramas right now...if theres a new korean drama that I find interesting, then I will watch it.

But I like korean dramas because its dramatic and romantic.

cause I find them the most visually appealing. For instance, I really like a lot of the plot lines that Matsumoto Jun (I think that's his name) has played in, but since I am repulsed by his face, I can't seem to watch them through. Same with Winter Tales, a Korean drama. Due to the lead actor's looks, despite the fact that I really liked the plot, I had to give up half way through. It didn't keep up my interest.

Surprisingly, I'm not really all this shallow in real life. I sometimes make friends with aesthetically unappealing individuals.
