Personally, I've watched a lot of Asian dramas: TW, J and K.

I'd prefer the quality of Japan. They make superb directing (angling the scenes), music backgrounds, and good transistion (rearranging) of manga plots.

I really think JAPAN are more mature in making good dramas Even though their dramas are short--it's enough to tell us the moral of the story. And, I'd appreciate how they emphasize courage, hope, wisdom and durability in their dramas rather than romantic superficial scenes.
Also, I'd like the different varities they offer: school, family, dreams, health and etc. They never tend to make the same concepts, they always try make what would be new and interesting. And what's best about their dramas---you learn a lot from it, because of the varities it offer. I watch Jdramas most of the time because of the information, advices, , as well as wisdom, I could obtain from the drama.
Mostly when you say drama, it really should be sad and heavy, but Jdramas don't focus much on making the drama sad, but rather focus on the ENDURANCE of the character in facing the troubles.


When it comes to their stars---I really think they have superb acting skills.

Korean dramas-I don't appreciate their love story dramas, because it's too superficial and immature, even though, there audience should be older people (but most youth love their dramas). It's immature because they just focus on romance, that makes it superficial. They're like saying--LIFE IS A FAIRYTALE...always happy ending...., and the same concepts as well---the prince charming types of drama.

I just appreciate their HERO/ HEROINE dramas, but again, they tend to focus on the romance (sometimes) rather than focusing on other things that should have been more emphasized.

Their stars--some are good, some arent..But most are old...but, they really are beautiful.

Taiwanese drama
- too cheesy and needs lot of improvement (also their stars). They keep making the same storyline of the manga.They don't make their own or integrate the story. They make plain fairytale, romantic, superficial dramas. I don't like how they misled the audience (especially the youth)....Unprincipled dramas.

I like K and TW dramas before. But, when I've started to watch Jdramas..I couldnt even imagine why I like K and TW drama.


The quality of products these asian countries produce equals the quality of their dramas. Like for example JAPAN...they are true when they say QUALITY with their product (we all know that...Japan is very advance in technology) , even with their dramas.

SORRY TO THOSE FANS HURT!


......

tell me now...what you guys think....!!!..does anyone agree with me? if somehow you do..please state why somehow you don't...!!!and kindly integrate!

i agree with you. I am bored already at the stereotypical love story in most Korean dramas. The story is always about two people from one rich family and one not-so-rich family, get together and found their love. Happy endings follow.
Taiwanese dramas are better than korean dramas, but they're also mostly oriented around love story. And there's always a happy ending. Some of the animated ones seem immature.
However, I enjoy watching Japanese dramas the most because the story is not all about love. They teach us about life and the meaning of it. Most of them makes me cry because they're so touching. Each one of them has a unique characteristic / story-line, so I am never bored of them. They're more realistic. The ending sometimes surprises me.
Go J-Drama!! :lol:

anyone consider hong kong dramas?
i think theyre the best
theres such a HUGE range
you get dramas with occupational themes like police academy, firemen, doctoc, pilots etc. or you have mystery/detective dramas or you have love romance dramas, or family life dramas or martial art dramas or ancient ones or modern ones..
just LOADs and loads of really gd ones
at the m, i would recommend moonlight resonance

I think it's best not to take it too seriously, i mean...when you feel like watching a sappy, predictable love story...go Korean.
If in need of some depth....a less intense love story....go Japanese.

If you want something that shows you almost impossible and unrealistic...yet funnyand somethimes kinda sweet ...go for Taiwanese.


It all depends on what I'm looking for in a drama.

or you could be looking for EYECANDY! (I know loads of those! )

def. kdramas for me quality wise..i mean i agree some of there stories are stereotypical..but if you talk about quality they are a lot more realistic than japanese dramas..especially the acting and filming effects and stuff ..the transitioning/backround music & other qualities you listed seem really fake to me ..and twdramas are just cheesy ... but just my opinion..

ehh i watch japanese dramas the least.
the only one i actually tolerated was hana yori dango.
like i try watching them, but they just kinda bore me.
idol dramas are idol dramas. korea and taiwan just happen
to use their idols to their benefit. i mean, if someone like mike he
or jiro wang WAS in a drama... would they really want to watch
something that has no one famous ?
