Rich guys , Poor girls dramas..

Postby noura » Fri Jun 23, 2006 4:32 am

I'm a crazy girl for dramas about Super Rich guys (owns a hotel,company..etc) trying to get poor girls.. and I've seen quit alot of them ( since most korean dramas are like that )
and still lust for more :wub: :wub:
if you've seen any , please recommend it and say if you've liked it or not.
What I've seen is :

--- What Happened in Bali :
one of the best dramas I've ever seen!! my heart ached in each episode :cry:
---My Girl:
the best drama of 2006
---Goong
such innocent love..so cute!!
---Full House
I must say that I was cheering for the other guy..
---Lover in Paris
the first Korean drama I've watched and I was hooked until the ******* end :cussing:
---Wish up on a Star
a classic drama that I cannot forget!
---My name is Kim Sam-Soon
Hyun Bin is a Handsom guy in that hair style..waiting for his new upcoming drama

Please, don't mention Pheonix..I've seen it and I can't say that it's in the same category..
PLEASE, please.. I'm in urgent need for such a drama ..
I read the synopsis of "Successful story of a Bright Girl" and it really looks like a great drama.. any other recommendations!![/spoiler]

Goodbye My Love doesn't qualify either since it is not the main male lead which is rich, but his friend. The two main characters lying to each other and the problems it creates makes it worth watching though.

hmmm...so do you care if the "other guy" is the rich one?

here are some:
My Love Patzzi
Attic Cat <--don't know if it fits your criteria though both lead guys are rich
Delightful Girl Choon Hyang <--the "other guy" is rich
Oh! Pil Seung Bong Soon Young <--the main story isn't the poor girl/rich guy story, but they're there
Sweet 18
Secret Lovers

as for LSIH, the "other guy" is rich...esp after he gets out of school. however, you're smart to get out now. :-)

Heh, In LSIH he's the son of one of the top wealthy attorneys in the city. His struggle with what daddy wants him to do and who to marry is a central theme.... :P

Basically like 90% of the kdramas I've watched are based on dat concept...

My Love Patzzi
The Successful Story of a Bright Girl (was rich in the beginning)
Let's Go To School Sang-Doo (was rich when he was younger)
Autumn Tale
Oh! Pil Seung Bong Soon Young (later becomes rich)
Wonderful Life (not really rich but I guess middle class)
Love Story in Harvard (comes from a rich background but never really shows it)
Sassy Girl Choon Hyang
Save The Last Dance for Me

So far, all the dramas I've seen are like that.

The only exception I can think of is Green Rose, where its a rich girl and a poor guy, until later on anyway.

noura, you are right. it is the same movie that i mentioned for Hyun Bin.... In regards to "All About Eve", the main character is a rich guy. he was in Model(drama) and the movie The Promise(highly recommended) :salut:

true, but it sounded to me that noura wants the series where the guys is FILTHY rich/in daddy's good graces/head of the company....i hope you understand where i'm going. :-) that's how come i asked about attic cat...cause KRW is rich in that he comes from a well-to-do family, but he's not rich with money in hand.

oh, thought of another one:
Let's Go To The Beach

btw, if you ever want to branch out into jdramas or c/twdramas, a drama that fits your requirements very well is Hana Yori Dango (jdrama) or its twdrama equivalent, Meteor Garden.

That's exactly what I ment .. I like them filthy richy and have cold hearts/ players or all he ever thinks about is busines .. :P
Let's Go To The Beach

This drama looks like the girl is rich.. but the story looks interesting.. I'll look for it..Thanks
:lol

I'm crazy fan of Hana yori Dango !! I read the manga and watched only the first episode of the TW drama "Meteor Garden" couldn't handle the stupid acting.. but I heard from my friend that it gets good after the thierd episode.. What do you think? do you suggest I continue the drama?
About the jdrama of the same manga.. I really enjoyed it .but it was very very.....SHORT!!
I wanted more!! but I liked the ending..very cute!! :wub:

Had any of you happen to watch the Kmovie " 100 days with Mr. Arrogant " ?

Thanks alot to all of you! I had collected some titles to look for :
1) Successful story of a Bright Girl << I think I will buy the boxset from Yesasia
2) All About Eve << this one is considered a classic..I'll buy it!!
3) 1% of ANYTHING << the main actress the one that acted in Snow White :w00t:
4) Last Dance Is With Me
5) Sad Sonata
6) Stairway to Heaven ,, the three above dramas is told to be the best of there year of production!!
7) Stained Glass LDG is in this drama.. I'm a fan of him .. My friend has the drama ,I'll get it from her!! :cheers:
8 ) Prince's First Love I think this one will suit my liking.. but you're saying it kept draging!!
ok.. I'll make it the last to watch .. maybe I'll gat bored from the richy .. you don't know
:whistling:

Glass Shoes WHAT??!! 40 ep!! when am I gonna finish downloading it?! I think I remember it being in KDOM .. I think I'll leave it for ..

Really Really Like You still not finished airing and not all the subs are available , I'll leave it for later

About other drama you had recommended :
- Sweet 18
- Autumn Tale
- Let's go to school Sang Do
I had watched them and I can't say they aren't rich but as I mentioned before I want them... Very rich!!

about the drama "Ruler of Your Own World" read alot of good comments about it and I wish it will win in the KDOTM so I'll get to d/load it and I don't mind if "Delightful Girl Choon Hyang" wins because I wish to watch it since I finished watching "My Girl" and the producer of it is the as the other..

Had any of you watched the K Drama "Secret" ? Looks like it's agood drama.. here for more info http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Secret

And ,Had any of you happen to watch the Kmovie " 100 days with Mr. Arrogant " ?

"coffee prince" or maybe "boys before flowers" which is also known as "boys over flowers" might fall under the rich guy and poor girl category but BBF or BOF isn't fully out yet; it's still airing [:

Anyone know of any asian dramas with RICH GIRLS?
I know of Tatta Hitotsu no Koi the japanese one with Haruka Ayase and Kamenashi Kazuya.
But that seems to be the only Rich Girl success story.

Being a rich girl myself i find it disturbing that all the Rich Girls keep getting screwed over.

Kindly assist?

Hmmm Celeb to Bimbo Taro is another rich girl - poor guy story but I haven't watched it so I don't know if it's any good. A friend of mine loved it though.
Generally there doesn't seem to be a rich girl patent in asian dramas. Dunno why though.

1. Coffee Prince - show about a poor working girl who pretends to be a boy to work in a coffee show owned by a rich guy... rich guy ends up falling in love with "him" not knowing it is a girl and struggles with "homosexuality" it is so funny and sweet.

2. Shining Inheritance - Cinderella story. Well off girl's father dies, step mother kicks her out without a dime. Girl gets taken in my a rich woman who wants her to be her heir in place of her bratty grandchildren... grandson starts to fall in love with her. (There is a ton of plot I didn't cover, it is a really in depth show!) This show is also funny and sweet, and also very very suspenseful because of all of the lies and secrets.

3. Fated to Love you - Poor homely girl goes on a cruise with her boyfriend, as does a rich haughty man. They end up having sex with each other due to very odd circumstances (it makes sense in the story but its hard to explain!) and they have to get married. This show is SOOO SOO sweet and sad... soo sad. It has a lot of twists, I highly recommend it.

Rich GIRL loves POOR guy

1. Witch Yoo Hee - A poor man gets into a car accident with a rich mean homely woman, and he has to be her housekeeper/stylist to pay off his debt. This show is very funny, and has a couple twists. It is great to see her makeover!

Rich Man Poor Woman - J-drama. I enjoyed the series. Kinda had a K-drama feel...not sure if it was directly based on a K-drama tho.
