We know that half of all k/j/twdramas are based on mangas, but which ones are based on non-manga books?

Prominent authors who has a lot of dramas based on their books that I know of:

Jin Yong - *spasms* He's so awesome! I love him to death. The only bad thing about him is that he has about 60 dramas based on his books, and new ones are made about once every three years, so I'll probably never finish watching all of them.... even if I do, there are a gazillion parodies of his dramas. (Legend of Brown Sugar Chivalry, for example)

Qiong Yao - queen of teenage romance; writer of Princess of Returning Pearl, Romance in the Rain, Dreams Link, etc.

Jiu Ba dao - new-age internet writer of Corner with Love, Full Count, etc.

do you know any others?

Koushun Takami's " Battle Royale." A great book turned into a crap movie.
If you read the book you too will agree. The manga is pretty good though.

i can't tell which dramas are based from mangas/manhwas/books and which aren't....

except for fdramas, they're based from either recycled ideas of writers or remakes.. (i like some fdramas though...)

yeah, well, that usually always happens when a book is made into a movie/drama
probably the biggest change was how they extended the story. I'm pretty sure that the book ended when Han Kyul found out that Eun Chan was a girl, but (as most of us know) the drama still went on after that.

I really need to get myself some Jin Yong novels, are they available in English?

Romance of The Three Kingdoms, I own that book (translated into English of course) & Wasn't everything to do w/ Condor Heroes based on a novel by Louis Cha?
& I know that Coffee Prince & The Vineyard Man are too, and Goong & Full House are based on manhwas. There are a ton of dramas based on manga too.
& 1 Litre of Tears, as said as above, is based on the diary of a real person.
