A brand new Favorites thread (because bad things happened to the other one). It's more fun if you do more than list, so if you can, tell us why!


I'm not sure I've watched enough to have any definite favorites yet, but I recently finished Hard to Say I Love You (JDrama) and liked it a lot. Here's a bit of what I wrote about it earlier.

A wonderful mix of predictability and surprises. It's a really human story that sit on a foundation of life as suffering (but not without joy).

I too liked "Hard to Say I Love You." I'm a huge EITA fan and feel like his performance was terrific. I especially enjoyed the way things turned out...it was pretty realistic.

I recently enjoyed "Always the Two of Us." The story is about best friends supporting each other in the pursuit of their dreams and explores the depth of devotion between the two.

I appreciated how the story inspired me to reflect on my friendships.

A key takeaway is that love comes in a variety of shades and depths....

most that I watch I kinda get tired after the first few episodes( Mischievous Kiss,Flower boy next door etc). I would've said Boys over Flowers or Dr Jin last week, but I just marathoned Coffee Prince and now Im wondering if I should just pack it up, because I might not ever watch anything better than it

My favorite is "Hi My Sweetheart". It's actually the first Asian drama I finished; the other ones were pretty boring. The thing that kept me watching for countless hours was the simple plot. Each time I finished one episode, my only objective was to just watch the next. The love triangle was cliche but simply interesting. It was cheesy, which in my opinion makes a funny, entertaining, and great drama. But I cannot forget the music: it makes me addicted to it; I certainly love playing it on the piano on a quiet day. Dramas are sweet.

I think "Love On A Diet", a Hong Kong romantic comedy film, takes the cake.

Seven Swordsmen

The Kung Fu Master

and

The King of Masks

Seven Swordsmen is a full blown wuxia series, It's so great, and addictive(you can't watch such a series, and not marathon it, It's literally not possible, even forcing your self to take a small break Isn't doable), until you get to the end, just to find out it was never completed sigh. Originally they were planning to make 6 movies, to act as a ending to the TV series, but for some reason that was never followed through with.

The Kung Fu Master, is such a masterpiece in movie making/story telling, not to mention in martial arts as well, I even rate it way higher then any of Bruce Lee's films, and Jet Li's Twin Warriore(aka Tai Chi Master). It's a wuxia series in movie form basically, and I can even imagine it being handled better then it was.

I generally don't like modern era settings in my Asian dramas, but The King of Masks is a exception, It's such a awesome, well told story, It's not funny.

This one not being a wuxia makes it infinitely easier to explain to people(to explain a specific wuxia, such as the ones I listed above, would more or less require me to tell you everything going on in the entire thing).

The King of Masks takes place right after WW II in China(It's not wartorn like people would think of a country being such, but It's pretty much the exact state London England was in the early 1900s, and you'll understand the whole backdrop). Well anyway there's this street performer who makes a decent living off of his martial arts skill, which involves changing masks he wears from one to another, at lightning speeds. He meets a famous female impersonator who performs for a Chinese opera troop, who takes a liking to his unique skill he possessing, and urges him to pass on his skill.

He then buys a boy to raise/pass on his skills to, only to find out not long after buying the kid, that the boy he supposedly got, is really a girl, and thus refuses to teach her his skill. The problem is, she really wants to learn it, and plus she's greatful that he didn't toss her out on the streets, so you have her trying her best to prove to him that's she's not just some useless girl, and such.

It's so amazingly told, and heart warming, if you haven't seen it yet, I strongly advise you to do so.

I've been meaning to watch that, but haven't got around to it yet. It's suppose to be great(as long as you get the Chinese release, it was supposedly cut in half for the NA release sigh. I hate when companies pull that crap).
