Examples:
Brown Sugar Macchiato
Smiling Pasta
Westside Story
The Outsiders
Prince Turns Frog
Green Forest, My Home
Full Count
Legend of the Condor Heroes
Return of the Condor Heroes
Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber
Xi Shi
The Magician of Love
A game about Love
(all the J-star ones)
Mr. Fighting
Legend of Star Apple
Love Contract
New Breath of Love
etc.....

actually....
smiling pasta is just another spin off/remake of full house.
and even i know that legend of the condor heroes,return of the condor heroes and heaven sword and dragon saber is chinese.

Another hate thread. You do know that alot of Korean dramas/movies are also based on Japanese manga? Or that doesn't matter to you b/c all you want to do is bash Taiwanese entertainment. It's cool though, everyone has an opinion.

I understand that manga is really popular in Taiwan. But are all the storywriters in Taiwain dead or something? Can't they make their own storyline for once or stop borrowing from Japan? Where's their own creativity? To me, I feel like the people who wrote the manga are cheated. It's a lot of work put into drawing the manga, making up the storyline, publishing it.

It's another thing to remake something if you're a fan and your actually honoring the original work but it seems like they are just trying to make $$ by taking other people's work. I dunno, I just feel kinda irritated about it cause about 80% of tawainese dramas are from manga. It just doesn't feel right to me. They also copy the storyline 100%, It's much harder to start from stratch to make up a good story than just take someone else's story and write a script which is basically 100% the same. -_-.

I know Japanese dramas are based off manga but that is a given, since manga originated in Japan. They put their creativity in the drama and even add/edit scenes not in the manga. Some fans don't like that because it's so different from the manga. I'm pretty sure they give proper credits. They are big on copyright issues. Like that incident of that korean singer Ivy being sued for using Final Fantasy graphics in her mv.

Also another thing, do Taiwanese people even get permission from the original author? or pay them $$ for taking their work. They copy like 100%.. I dunno about Asia but if they did that in the USA.. there will be a lot of copyright issues and lawsuits flying around if they didn't give proper rights.

well for me i agree with you.
i do think the mangas itself does get cheated.Alot of taiwan dramas are based on mangas and its like if your gonna do it at least make it good but i dont think any of there "remakes" are even good. Plus when they do come out with there own storylines its pretty average stuff that alot of other dramas have. usually just lovey dovey stuff or cheesy storylines.One more thing its like there in a library and taiwan just picks any manga they want then picks people to star in them...kinda funny eh? Not much creativity. and another thing that bothered me is that they basically used the plot of full house to make smiling pasta instead of a rising actor they use a rising singer c'mon! well thats my say. this is my opinion and im not very fond of taiwan dramas because of that but they are a few that i do like but i like the ones that dont have bad actors the ones that are more towards the original side such as my lucky star(:

Taiwanese dramas probably do get permission to make the dramas. It would be pretty stupid if they didn't and no one noticed. But I like Taiwanese dramas. You can always count on them to make the drama 100% spot on, and then you get to see a variation from the Japanese one. I like the variety. If Meteor Garden was exactly like Hana Yori Dango, then I wouldn't watch it. I like variety, picking out all the different things there are in remakes.

does it make a difference?
Japanese and korean dramas are sometimes based off of manga.
I mean, they credit the authors and get permission, so what's the big deal. Some manga are just so good that they should be made into dramas.
And I like it better when they do follow the story line because otherwise I feel like, "omg, they changed everything, they're ruining a good manga". Like, I loved the Japanese Hana Kimi, but I was very irritated throughout seeing how much they changed. I wasn't so much a fan of the Taiwanese Hana Kimi, but I liked how it followed the story line. (I just hated the acting haha).
I actually like seeing dramas based off of manga.

oh and about the smiling pasta based off of full house thing.
I know that it is based off of full house, but...
I feel that a lot of korean dramas are just like full house. but oh, they're korean. smiling pasta is taiwanese and it's like full house so let's make a big deal out of it.
I actually don't like full house at all and think that smiling pasta is amazing. I don't see the resemblance in the dramas at all except there's a poor girl living with a rich famous guy.

but everyone is entitled to their own opinion so yeah.

and even i know that legend of the condor heroes,return of the condor heroes and heaven sword and dragon saber is chinese.

But smiling pasta is still different enough. Otherwise, I would consider Princess Hours/My Girl/etc. all to be a spin off of full house.
I'm not sure what you mean by the last sentence....
but yes, all three were written by a mainland/Hong Kong writer. There have been, however, one Taiwanese remake of LoCH, two Taiwanese remakes of RoCH, and three Taiwanese remakes of Heaven Sword.

wow they changed the actor into an actor. i still consider that not really being creative. goong to me doesnt have much alike with full house at all and my girl doesnt either...besides the fact that they all have bubbly/cute/lively female mains.
with the last sentence i meant that those three arent taiwanese there chinese and i even know that.

oh come on, that's not true.
well of course some are from manga since it's so popular there
but they make their own stories up too.
and i'm pretty sure they have to pay for remaking it.
taiwan dramas are my fave partially cuz i actually understand it.

not all manga is from Japan, they're just more popular well in American they are...but I do see some korean ones :D

of course Taiwan would pay unless they want to be sued haha
but no one is perfect so it just really depends

does it really matter if there are dramas that are based on manga or some book, well i guess it can be kinda annoying but as long as it's good, we shouldn't complain...anways it's not like we've seen all of the dramas of each country and know whether it's based on a manga or not...

no one is perfect.......

I just watch the stuff w/eng subs on the internet, so yeah...

this probably didn't make anysense oh well

hmm i think it's because story from manga is popular and lots of people like it... so they decide to adapt it into movie or drama... and not all of the manga story they put in the drama, they change it a little...
i dun care which country adapts manga story, as long the drama is worth to watch it's enough for me...

but i do really hate when i saw hana yori dango/meteor garden in indonesian version (forgot the title). the story inconsistent and make me confuse... arghh it's like a headache to see that drama...
can you imagine that indonesian tsukushi (tsukushi if it's in hanadan) end up with indonesian nishikado (if in hanadan this guy roles as nishikado soujiro)? and indonesian domyouji is dead... arghhh that drama really ruins my fave meteor garden and hanadan...
it's like the end of the world when i saw the ending... it's like seeing tsukushi is going out with nishikado...
