this is one of the rare kdramas which could play to a universal audience instead of just a local native one. A very powerful character study. It's a bit silly but it's comparable to Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead.

Are Jdrama more popular than Kdrama, and if so why?

From reading the forums and looking at the post numbers, it seems to me (although I may be wrong) that Jdrama are more popular than kdrama. Is this true? And if so, why do you think this is the case? More specifically, which do you favor more in general? Until very recently I favored jdrama more tha...

Fantasy Couple ep 14, when Na Sang Shil tells Chul Soo that she loves him over the phone. It wasn't especially touching, but I like the way she says it. "Love is like that... I love you." LOL :cheers:

Yeongaesomun the drama is very flexible with the actual historical events to the point it should be termed as fiction. Having studied the period extensively, I am appalled by some of the fictitious events that happen in Yeongaesomun's life. For example, Yeongaesomun would never have fought FOR any C...

if you are referring to White Tower from MBC, this is a medical drama of a serious nature, not a comedy at all (unless it is being unintentionally funny, as in if you check the drama's website URL, it reads http://www.imbc.com/broad/tv/drama/ whitepower /index.htm) As far as I know, this is a korean...

Ruler of Your Own World. Although it's been 5 years since it last aired, it has a near perfect pace, chemistry, and even a wonderful ending. Its writing is mature, clever, and balanced between emotion and humor. Plus it has very few, if any, cheesy moments and stupid cliffhangers. It's a clear cut a...

personally, I don't think the male lead has the necessary gravitas for his role. After all, Jumong was the founder of Kokuryo, a kingdom that spanned almost a thousand years before it fell to a combined force of China, Shinra and internal conflicts and betrayal. Its founder should be someone of grea...
