I honestly thought Jdramas were like soap operas. I've always hated soap operas and loved Samurai/Ninja/Kung-fu movies. I happen to see Summer Snow, Last Christmas, and
Long Vacation by accident. I wasn't ready when the emotional deluge came and my throat start hurting and I was trying my best to not let one drop come from my eyes ;(. I failed in that battle.

In Jdramas you learn things and you seem to really feel for the characters. I got addicted to them for a while and I've seen so many now it's not even funny. I still don't have much respect for American soap operas but a bunch of respect for Jdramas.

"A Tale of Two Sisters". K-movie - damn good. My old boss was always talking about certain J-horror flics that were "great". He introduced me to Ju-on (great, and freaky), and Pulse (didn't like it) way before the US (crappy) versions came out.

I was amazed by Lee Dong Wook's outrageous looks in My Girl drama series that I bought a DVD copy of it right in an instant. After watching the whole thing, little by little, I started collecting other dramas too. Then the next thing I know is that I've already watched tons of Asian movies and that I've collected more than 10 Korean DVDs! :lol:

@neeque--oh dear, he's gorgeous.

I think what got me interested, initially, were the story lines. And the fact that I can't tell when people are being extremely corny when they act in Korean, Chinese, or Japanese, whereas watching American soap operas makes me wince.

I also enjoy watching movies. I've gotten into foreign film, particularly Japanese and Spanish, because I like the different perspective. Some of the connections are still the same.

When I first moved to Hawaii me and my brother were stuck in the hotel so we just channel surfed for a while. We started to watch some Korean drama that was on at the moment , and ever since then we've been hooked. Though I mostly watch Japanese dramas, and my brother mostly watches Korean dramas.

Well i liked love stories to begin with and I started reading shoujo manga even though I'm a guy. Then my cousin forced me to watch Hana yori dango on crunchyroll and I've been addicted to asian dramas since.
