Answer please...do you agree with me...that the quality of a drama reflects the quality of the products and people of a country (esp. Asian countries) ?........

i don't think american dramas are that great compared to the asian dramas i've seen, but that doesn't mean america sucks.
so, you can't compare the quality of a drama to the quality of the country.

No.... America doesn't have dramas, that would mean America doesn't exist?

But there are some qualities of the countries that show through their dramas.

(I'm over-generalizing a bit, the following is not always true)

Japanese dramas are short, to the point, creative, but can be grotesque/perverted. I think that fits the general image of Japan as productive, creative, but a bit cold-hearted.

Korean focus on amazing clothes and settings, but lacks creative plotlines. Korea is a very well-off nation.... I'm not sure how to explain the plotline, though.

Taiwanese dramas are light-hearted and engaging, but lack substance. It almost makes me wonder if it's because their denial of their cultural identity and history.

Similarly, mainland dramas are really realistic (ie. they are the only dramas where the ugly characters are ugly), and it sort of shows the realistic mentality of mainlanders. They focus on two things: realistic dramas about normal people (not glamorous lives and chick flicks) and historical dramas. I think the first is a reminiscent of the cultural revolution, when realism was treasured over fantasies, while the second shows the Chinese people's wish to return to the glory of the old days.

I don't think you can judge a country solely based on the quality of their dramas. You have to look at other aspects

Helllllll no. If you mean 'high quality' and 'low quality', then I think Filipino dramas suck. But Filipino dramas, in general, don't all suck to me. The Philippines is a third world country, you can't expect HIGH QUALITY to show up on your TV. The Philippines is beautiful.
