    Asian Dramas

    Any one else watches Asian dramas. They have a large variety of shows, though I mostly watch the romance ones.

    Here's my drama list: https://mydramalist.com/dramalist/Nikamara

    If you do watch them, what are your favourite ones?

    My mom does. Korean, Chinese, Japanese.

    I've only watched a few. My first Asian Drama was Meteor Garden, then Dae Jang Geum, then Lovers in Paris, then Save the Last Dance for Me, then Full House, then Jumong. I also remember watching Gokusen, Mr. Brain, The Producers, HERO, God of Study, Dream High, Dream High 2, City Hunter, and most recently Descendants of the Sun.

    There are a lot of dramas on that list I haven't seen. Which ones do you highly recommend?

    i had a phase three summers ago and watched like 4 korean dramas. it gets played out a bit after you've watched the best ones. my favorite one was i can hear your voice. the plot, direction, characters was refreshing compared to the overly saturated cookie cutter series in this genre.

    I don't know your tastes. But the ones I really enjoyed are as follows: Full House, God of Study, Dream High, Mr. Brain, and City Hunter. The others are good but the ones I just recommended are my personal faves. Lovers in Paris for example is a legendary kdrama.

    I've seen the Thai version of Full House because people say it's the best one. It's one of my absolute favourites.
    Dream High is on my to watch list. City Hunter I never finished. I watched like 2 ep when it was airing and then lost interest, but to be fair I am inclined to dislike Lee Min Ho dramas.

    I don't like to watch Wuxia because they never have happy endings

    I read the synopsis for Hwarang but it didn't gather my interest.
    I assume it's based on Silla. How does it compare to a series like Queen Seondeok?

    I've never seen Queen Seondeok. Sounds interesting, I'll go check it out. As to Hwarang, it's basically slice of life show about a bunch of pretty boys from nobility living in a military academy of feudal Korea. It mostly focuses on character relationships, romance and political intrigue. The girls are cute, but boys even cuter. It has quite the superstar cast. I also liked the setting and costumes.

    Queen Seondeok is a drama based on the life on the titular character. She was the first queen of Silla (one of the 3 kingdoms that eventually made up Koreo, and was instrumental in laying the ground work for unification). Hwarangs were portrayed as a special military unit in that drama, but my research suggest that Hwarang were indeed pretty boys.
