Re: why is that white ppl if they are into asian culture are

When you referred to white people, do you mean all of them? Because surely I've had white people friends who actually hated Japanese. :unsure: Being a Filipino, I see there were also lots of white people here in the Philippines, not only Americans but Norwegians, Germans and Brazilians. However, the...

Thanks Ruroshin! I'm glad you're also open with other asian dramas as well.
More power to D-Addicts! :)

The only reason I'm against non-Eastern Asian dramas being posted on D-Addicts is the tracker and bulletin board resources. Even right now, utilization is very high, and performance can be low at times. And Ruroshin has explained it numerous times that he ends up paying out of his own pocket - as b...

I'm Filipino but I don't watch teleseryes. They're too taxing to watch and most of the times, the storylines are just recycled and with almost no ingenuity at all. Although I must say that the actors are really good (at least some, most of whom are from ABS-CBN), its just that the plots are either ...

Actually you can use WinRAR trial for 30 days (for free), and it'll just keep asking you to register after 30 days (you might lose some functions, but the main common functions are still usable) Well then so is WinZip 11 - it supports RAR now. But that's beside the point - you should be un-installi...

I'm Filipino myself and I just moved from Philippines 2 years ago. I don't mean to be mean to my fellow kababayans but Filipino dramas are very cliche and long. Might as well make 24 episode original story dramas, don't you think? That's the reason why imports from other Asian countries such as Met...

Hi! Just curious, but are there anybody here fond of watching Filipino dramas, especially for the non-Filipinos out there? If so, what Filipino dramas have you watched? For the "kababayans", which Fil drama do you like the most? I'd like to know if there is any drama that many would like to watch, a...

My 2 cents about.. everything.. 1st Hibari, well we all know how she's crazy over Sano from the beginning. That's how she is, I dun't think loving someone is a sin. Even though Sano doesn't recognize her existence, she still lives in all her imagination. If Mizuki never appears in that school, she'...

I think it's OK. Not everyone has a permanent internet connection, or knows how to get the dramas. But I think they should charge a reasonable amount, not like it's a real dvd. In my opinion, even if they charge only shipping and handling for the DVDs, that won't justify them selling the fansubs. D...

At this point, I'm more interested in what Nakatsu does than Sano. He's so interesting and fun to watch! Also, didn't Ikuta play a character in Hana Yori Dango? His face looks familiar. Also, I remember reading the manga and Himejima is portrayed so differently in the manga but here he's just scary...

If I recall correctly, it was the guy who plays Tennouji (Ishigaki) who was in Gokusen and not Himejima, but all the same, quite more wacky than his Gokusen counterpart (named Minami-- just like Nanba!!)

I somehow agree at that point but at the same time I also wonder if it's on plan of the script writer, again. :unsure: Now I even doubt that the real reason he made that change of Sano's accident is this.. So.. now, Mizuki answered that she doesn't luve/idolize Sano that much to come back to Japan ...
