So we love asian drama! But lately I have started to think a little about the diffrence between western drama ( like greys anatomy, sex and the city, desperate house wives, supernatural you name it!) and asian ones... have you noticed any difference?

I think that the humour is a bit diffrent and the love stories can be a bit more innocent. This is just what i think...

And the actors and actresses how are they different from the big Hollywood stars??

Tell me your oppinion :D

i love ally mcbeal...
the wacky - ness and the whole gang makes the drama really
interesting....they have their own individuality as such....

but, when i started watching my asian dramas, i never turned back....
perhaps bcos, i can relate to it more...
or bcos it makes up for all the frustrations that i have in life....

to live in asia and enjoy the diverse culture that you guys have....
how often do you go out, have a bottle of soju in one of those red huts with ur
friends, ei ?
always seems to see your family get together and eat, eat and eat...until you can't take it no more
karaoke til such time that ur voice are all hoarse....

their difference?
uhm...
asian series are asian made and western drama are western made (lolz taking abt taking things literally)

ok... seriously I think asian series are innocent I mean its rare to see a real kiss in asian dramas

hollywood stars and asian stars differences... TALENT FEE!!!

plus hollywood stars are more known than asian stars...
I'm only one of the few people who don't even know the name of the hollywood films I watch...
and in a discussion in school with my friends (excluding my barkada) I feel left out because when they talk about hollywood I don't know a thing exept the movie title and when I bring up a discussion about an asian drama there are only few who will reply...
only my barkada knows and speak of asian series in school

and also hollywood films are being played and watched in almost every theatre around the globe and asian films are showed mostly in thier own counties and its rare for a film to be played in other countries ( reason why hollywood actors and actresses are known)

asian series and movies are underrated!! but there are only few hot and cute hollywood actors!! there are only few great hollywood actors!! thier plots are very repeatative!! thier series are very long!!! A series usually have more than 4 seasons!! I only watch ghost wispher and kyle xy ad they both already reached season 3 and I only watch few episodes (like 20 each I guess)!! but asian dramas are great for people like me who doesn't have enough patience to wait until the whole story ends and likes variety and easily gets bored!! plus likes cute guys

in conclusion asian series are better than hollywood series and yet they are underrated due to less exposure to international scene!! it's actually animes who are more exposed in the international scene!!

Western ones were made for adults and have like 5 or 6 seasons.
Asian ones usaully have one season and less episodes and anyone can watch them.

I think that asian and western dramas reflect the mentality of their country..Hollywood stars are more extroverted, Asian stars are morereserved..plus there is the factor of "being an Idol" that basically don't exist in West..
I like all the different culture, but I think that the most charming is the asian one..with his innocence andhis silences..

there's always sex, some violence, and some inapporpriate language in western dramas... most western dramas also have 100+ episodes. then in asian dramas, typical high school love triangle, friendship, differences in social status, arranged marriage, sneaky bad guys, etc.
