ahah, thats the difference for me. lol


hahaz i agree... especially jap dramas- most of them hav a good plot but lousy endings
as for taiwanese dramas, they aint worth your time


yeah true, taiwanese drama isn't worth
the time. if it starts out good, the ending
sucks, if it starts out bad, well, if it already
started out bad, why would ya wanna finish
it? haha.

uhh... varying opinions....well the kdramas MOST "young" ppl watch are always about romance/comedy....its not that the storyline is similiar..its just that they always watch that certain genre....dam generalizations... not only for kdramas but j & t ones too.... if u guys truly want dramas with 'DIFFERENT" storylines then go for genres like drama, suspense, mystery and quit complaining...gosh.....the world's reply to dramas of small countries...

k dramas--most of the dramas have the same concept (storyline) about romantic relationship..They focus more on romance. Some of their dramas are also about their heroes and heroines..long and draggy

J dramas-most of the dramas focus on values, integrity and principle. Theyhave different storylines-- some are about mysteries, love, dreams and hope. short and fast paced..but enough to tell people about the moral of the story...

TW drama- most of the dramas focused on romance---cheesy romantic scenes---and comedy.
same concepts, and sometimes they base (storyline) on mangas.

well, everyone already stated the obvious, but since i'm bored i'll say it again

TW Dramas are often based on manga, and the actors and actresses are usually pretty boys/girls with (admit it) not that great acting. There are a lot of cheesy, romantic, and comedic scenes, and it's always quite light and fluffy. Most use the same theme songs over and over again, which becomes pretty repetitive. They usually last for about 20-something to 30-something episodes, airing every weekday.

Japanese Dramas have much more varied plots. There's the generic manga-based drama, and there's also dramas with a darker story. Overall, a great range of plots and good acting, but their cinematography is all quite similar. They have less episodes, usually around 10-13, and air once a week.

Korean Dramas have a lot of similar storylines, usually with a love triangle/square, or a long lost family member, or a lethal disease. Most of the time the dramas start off light and fluffy, but as the story progresses, everything gets sadder and more depressing. Usually the acting is pretty good, and there's a lot of great soundtracks from the dramas that I've watched. They have around 12-17 episodes, and air twice a week.

i like korean dramas japan dramas r so unrealistic
Posted 8/30/08
for me..

Korean dramas >> normally has a sad story line.. which bores me a lot.. and thee sad story lines are not that touching.. ive never really watched them

Japanese dramas >> they have different plots.. from romance, comedy to mystery, thriller or detective.. and the dramas are short.. so i dont get bored..

Taiwan dramas >> the acting is fake, compared to the other two dramas.. and its long.. i mean longer than jap dramas.. i give up after a while..but they're funny in a way

for me.... jap drama > taiwan drama > korean drama

that depends on what your taste in movies are. for me I like K-dramas because they are clean. Not much on sex and showing skin. it injects respect for parents and loyalty to love ones. If you think the strory lines are the same, you are wrong. try to see the best of them and you'll love these K-dramas.

i agree with u for sure. but i thought k dramas usually have happy kiss endings but like theres always a love triangle so that one person or 2 w.e ends up sad so i guess it is sorta sad. but NOT FOR THE MAIN COUPLE BUAHAHAHA LMFAO. J dramas do have wtf endings sometimes.. t drama yep totally CHEEZZYYYYY
