That would be so cool if there was Kdrama HYD! I would really want to watch that. Hmm... who would I pick? Tsukasa - it's a three way tie for me! Either Jo In Sung, Bi, or Won Bin. They've all played "rich boy" roles really good. Jo In Sung (WHIB), Bi (Full House - he was kinda rich since he was a s...

I´ve downloaded the subtitles for episode 04, but I guess there are some mistakes... My Japanese is not good, so if someone could help me just to understand it better, please... At the restaurant scene, when Tsukushi and Doumyouji are talking about the apple... After all his explanation about the a...

I actually saw the movie before the anime series or Meteor Garden came out. It got me interested in HYD storyline. But I think if you were to watch it after the Meteor Garden or the HYD series in Japan now, it would be kinda cheesy. I thought Fujiki Naohito made a good Rui and the girl who played Sh...

At the end of the FIRST EPISODE, you could already tell that something bad was going to happen and the video where the GREEN PIGGIE dies, I was confused. But when I read the FORUM and the LYRICS, it kinda clinched it (In my own opinion only) that one of them (I think SHUJI coz' the way the VIOLET P...

Wah! I just finished watching episode 4! This drama is so good! I loved that 114 storyline! :lol I can't wait for the next episode! From the preview, Shuji is planning the "Double Date Operation!" From the official website and my limited Japanese, I think it says that he is gonna set up a double dat...

I think you should try watching Loveholic (I think someone already mentioned it). When I watched it, it reminded me so much of Majou no Jouken. Another one is Autumn Story (Kdrama). It's about a guy who finds out his sister is not really his sister, then when they get older (and after they are seper...

I think the worst drama for me was "Soori to Yobanaide". This one had such a great all star cast, but was soooooo boring! Gee, it took me years and years to finish it (I had hopes that if I kept watching it, it would get better!) I also didn't like Dekichatta Kekkon, the pairing of Takenouchi Yutaka...

In taiwanese series Mars ans Devil beside you, they're lot of good kissing scenes. Ah! and the one in "my name is kim sam soon", when she kiss him first in the restaurant, she looks like she's eating a delicious cake and really enjoying it, I relly liked it!

For me, I think dramas that I would actually tell people to avoid is "Summer Scent" and "Prince's First Love." Summer Scent started off okay, but then it just got really draggy. I didn't like "Prince's First Love" because I thought the tricks that the main guy played were so immature and even danger...
