Well here is my update on Playful Kiss, it's crap. I just finished the first episode and realized that it is a remake of ISWAK TWdrama. Jung So Min looks better than TW actress Ariel Lin and her acting is much better than Ariel Lin too. BUT I can tell already that I will have to skip thru a whole lot of this one because I already know what it's about. I just started watching it today and will most likely end it today.

Oooo I was just wondering about Playful Kiss! I don't think I will watch it if the lead is bad. Well let me watch the 1st epi and I will know if it's to my liking within 5-10 minutes. If not good then I will give Secret Garden a go.

You might want to try Oh! My Lady. It was good and had a few funny parts well not a lot but some cute and funny scenes.



I will try that!!! Playful kiss won't be that good but it does have some heartwarming scenes and the lead actress is very lovable...!!!
I like her in it..
At least the lead guy was better in PK than in Boys over Flowers...
:-)
You were right. Playful Kiss is crap. I can't watch it. On to the next drama. I need something recent and good! Like Oh! My Lady. Something with good music too. If the music is not so great and no good singing then it gets boring to me.

You people are a tough audience.
Take a look at this web page where you can vote on KDrama. This site might answer some of your questions and you can add to the vote.

http://www.darksmurfsub.com/forum/index ... -jan-2008/

Full House-great drama, great OST
Witch Yoo-Hee--good drama, great OST
Beethoven Virus-Korea's bad answer to Japan's brilliant Nodame Cantabile
I watched all three versions of Playful Kiss, Japans was the worst actors and video (it is the oldest), Taiwan's (2 seasons) stuck to the book the best but video quality was also lacking. Korea's was the newest and tried to combine two seasons into one season, the writer of the book has died so there was never any ending to the story written.

YAY! Thanks el_canuck! I will check out that website and vote but I think I am heading over to Jdrama then Cdrama & TWdrama for a while. Then I will be back when there is another good Kdrama. Thanks for posting that site I am heading over now :salut:

On second thought, I can't navigate on that website and it's too confusing and the layout is not user friendly.:scratch: I'll stick with d-addicts and silent regrets for now.

I changed my mind. :whistling: I watched the first episode of My princess and I like it! I'll stick with kdrama until I watched all of the good ones from 2010 up until now. Then I'll head over to TWdrama

OK Atlanta, I have to ask. Are y'all looking g for good drama, or cute guys. If you liked Oh My Lady, then get Dal Ja's Spring, it is considered Chae Rim's best drama and a classic.
If you are new to this internet drama thing, then go back and get older ones because there is no waiting for subtitles and after you have watched a few older ones, then the newer ones will be ready to watch. One Fine Day is a good one with Gong Yoo. Make Drama Wiki your bible and go for it. I think if you have not seen Coffee Prince you are missing everything and Secret Garden is the next best KDrama.

Hancinema should be in your Favorites/Bookmarks for up to the minute news on KDrama.

I actually thought Playful Kiss was ok, not a master piece but enjoyable. Well yes Kim Hyun Joong can't act but the story was ok and I found the rest of the family more interesting that just Baek Seung Jo's and Oh Ha Ni's romance. I just loved Baek Seung Jo's mother and his little brother. The guy who had a crush on Oh Ha Ni was adorable too.

But then again, I'm a shôjo consumer and I like characters who are a bit silly but have warm heart so... (I have never understud why people hate "perfect", warm hearted characters because I wish I had even once met one in real life.)

I wouldn't say in same phrase Playful Kiss is crap and praise MMM and BOF. :lol

@iluvasiandrama, if you like romantic comedies and the poor girl & rich guy set, you should watch Secret Garden, Goong, Full House and the Secret Lovers. Can't say that the girls are ugly though. ;) Also, only Secret Garden is from last year. You might also like My Girlfriend is a Gumiho if you want a cute story, it's from last year.

Did you see It Started With A Kiss? If not, then that is prolly why you liked Playful Kiss. It's a re-make of ISWAK and I don't think it was a good rendition. ISWAK was good because the whole family was funny but they focused too much on the lead girl's stupidity and it was overboard. But you are entitled to opinion so to each their own :D

The only new one you mentioned is Secret Garden so I will read up on that one. The others I've seen and they are older. I'm looking for something NEWER.

Goong - I saw that and it was pretty good as far as ugly poor girl and super hot guy but I can only watch Yoon Eun Hye when she plays boy roles. She plays them perfect!

Any more suggestions anyone? 2010 to 2011

Well my point of view was quite objective because I had not seen any other versions of it before. In fact, I wasn't hoping much from it because of Kim Hyun Joong and I was surprised that I liked it. ("like" = watchable) I don't think just being remake makes remakes any worse than they are. What I mean is that it's a bit overreacting to say something is crap because it's a remake and wasn't same as the original version. For exaple I tried to watch BOF before seeing the original version HYD but I coudn't finish it because it was so horrible but I watched HYD after it and loved it.

So... I don't think it was just matter of not seeing the original version first. But I don't argue if the original version was better than this, it's quite possible. I still need to watch it. :-)

for 2010 dramas i recommend sunkyunkwan scandal, coffee house, prosecutor princess, stars falling from the sky. you said you have seen most of the older dramas but if you haven't seen you're beautiful, what's up fox? or smile, you i would recommend those as well. I am currently watching dream high and love it. I really like any show with good singing and dancing, but i think the acting is great as well.









currently watching dream high, my princess, secret garden, love buffet, taisetsu na koto wa subete kimi ga oshiete kureta

Can anyone tell me how The Story of the Great King and the Four Gods/The Legend was. I know there is a topic here on D-Addicts but when I started to skim through the page I noticed that there was NO SPOILERS! :crazy: I just wanna know if its watchable or not. It seems like there is a lot of CGI/fantasy things going on there.

Im thinking of just going down the list of Sageuk and Taeha dramas that Ethleen posted and watch them all one by one. Imagine how much time thats going to take! :goggle: :rofl:

just finished secret garden.. so glad i didn't give up it. can't say enough good things about that drama. so now I know what the secret garden blues feels like. I need to find something new to watch. I fell for Park Shi Hoo in prosecutor princess and was wondering if queen of reversals and family's honor are any good? I was also thinking of paradise ranch and once upon a time in saengchori. has anyone seen either of these or have any other recommendations for romantic comedy or romantic drama. I have also been curious if anyone has watched flames of ambition?

Paradise Ranch--I started to read the discussion pages on PR and they all start about how anxious they are on this new drama and that they cannot wait. Then the messages stopped after it got going. The reason, it is bad, something I did not expect from SBS. I started watching it because I wanted to see how Lee Yeon Hee did in a starring role (I had only seen her in One Fine Day) now I switch over to the Japanese side due to the poor quality of KDrama, not like last year at this time. I guess I am waiting for My Princess and Athena to end so I can watch them and not have to wait.

Anybody who says Playful Kiss is bad and Marry me Mary is good is not judging the drama, just hot for an actor in MMM.

i think anyone who has seen the taiwanese version it started with a kiss will compare it with playful kiss. If they liked taiwanese version they may not like the korean version. I have seen both and like both for different reasons. I think they each have their own merits and flaws, however I also like mary stayed out all night and it seems like many didn't like it soo i guess it just comes down to personal taste.

Do not forget the original "Itazura na Kiss", how many have seen it? I have seen all three and I liked ISWAK and Playful Kiss. I watched thinking that it could not top ISWAK but I enjoyed it all the way to the end. I noticed that both Playful Kiss and MMM both had had low ratings in the 6% range, of course Playful Kiss did not have Jang Geun Suk to help it in the ratings.
Have any of the 4 from Boys over Flowers had a decent drama since the end of "Flowers",
one that has scored high in the ratings? I read somewhere that Koo Hye Sun is now going to direct.

I agree My Princess is really good. I am watching Autumn's Concerto meanwhile. It's pretty good with some disturbing parts at the beginning. I'm also starting Nagareboshi jdrama today too. Can't wait for ep 13+ of My Princess!

well I would say ISWAK is good but not great. Joe Cheng is so good in this and plays his character perfectly but I got really annoyed with Ariel Lyn's character at times. I think it is worth watching. I actually enjoyed the second season more than the first but others might disagree. That being said even though I liked it it would not make my top 20 anymore(out of all dramas not just taiwanese) If you do watch it and like it I would recommend the rose. That drama was so funny and the actors have great chemistry.

:unsure:
It is better than the kdrama version TO ME but others don't agree. So it pretty much is personal taste (not the show btw hehe). The TWdrama ISWAK got to be annoying at times but was better than kdrama IMO. One thing I noticed is the Kdrama has a better looking lead girl than the TWdrama's Ariel Lin, too me.

If you would like to watch some good TWdrama you should look at the suggestions in the Chinese Drama forum. I would quickly recommend Devil Beside You before watching any other TWdrama. :D

I don't think you will regret it but you have to see it for yourself.

As for kdrama, some of the newer ones I would recommend are Worlds Within (2008), S. Scandal (2010), Marry Me Mary! (2010), My Princess (2011)

I haven't seen Family's honor but at 54 epi's I prolly won't watch it. Queen of Reversals look good but I really can't comment since I have not watched either of them.

I got tired of Mars at around the 6th episode but that may be because I didn't like Barbie Xu in that drama. I liked her in Love w/Corners.

Recommend me a K-drama!

Post by WasabiVengeance » Feb 18th, '11, 14:50

I've got the kdrama itch currently, but I've been out of the scene for a while. The last recent thing I've watched was Coffee Prince, which I loved to death!

Can anyone recommend me a great, recent kdrama with english subs available? It doesn't have to have super hot guys or girls, just solid acting. Completely stereotypical cinderella stories are fine.

Thanks in advance!

Oh, a guy!


This is the list I wrote before.

My Girl,
Goong,
Dal Jas Spring,
That Fool,
Take Care Of The Young Lady,
Shining Inheritance,
Full House,
Creating Destiny,
Oh! My Lady,
Personal Taste,
Invincible Lee Pyong Kang,
City Hall,
My Girlfriend is a Gumiho,
Prosecutor Princess
My lovely Sam-soon

But if you seek for really addictive Drama and it may be quite sad but very, very good, then watch A Love To Kill, The Devil and Sorry, I Love You, and Bad Guy. Pick one.
And oh... recent? Bad Guy then, buy if you want something lighter and quite funny too, then Fugitive : Plan B. There is My Girlfriend is a Gumiho, too. Just pick one of these.

Hey Neliets, thanks. Question though, I specifically requested kdrama with english subs available. The place I usually check is http://www.d-addicts.com/forum/subtitles.php, but that doesn't seem to list subs for Fugitive : Plan B, Bad Guy, or My Girlfriend is a Gumiho. Are people getting kdrama subs somewhere else now?

WITHS2 went separate ways some time ago. Simple search on google would show this website.
Haru2 is another group. BON is another.

Ehhhhhhhh. I feel like watching something good. Is there anything else to see from good, old classics? Something very very good but on a sad note, like The Devil, Bad Guy, A Love To Kill or Sorry, I love You, or Soulmate? Please, help me! Is there anything else that good left to watch?

Ethlenn, you know a lot of dramas, you got anything like that?

Right now it's President.
On Air wasn't bad either, also Que Sera Sera or Lovers (but those are not "brand new").
Plus Gumiho - The Tale of the Fox Child is really grim, intense but nice.

I was looking for the same thing and couldn't really find one. Ended up w/Chuno and it's good so far. I'm only on episode 6 so it hasn't really gotten sad yet but it's okay so far. I'm looking for something like Iljimae sad funny romantic and addictive or "seat hanger" I call them. I hope Chuno is sad like Iljimae but I guess my sis and I will find out soon. I hope someone can recommend more too.

Well, Chuno is a lot sadder than Iljimae. A whole lotta lot.
But the Gumiho drama - it's kinda sageuk, so... ekhem...

Another sad but good drama is Thank You. Recommended.

I'm getting all girly, you know. I want some romance now, but, as far as I know, President isn't about that, neither is Gumiho. But I'll take Que Sera Sera, watched some moments on youtube(OST or something), looks worth watching.

Yes, I heard that Chuno is very good and so on but, sorry, not a fan of historical dramas. While downloading the first episode of Que Sera Sera, I'll read the first pages of this thread, I don't think that I've seen all classics... I have a feeling that I have left out something.

I wrote down Thank You. I totally forgot about that one. I'll watch that next.

Que Sera Sera is ok but it's not exactly heart tearing story. I got more sad about the female lead (Jung Yoo Mi) who was so skinny that she looked more like a skeleton in a dress... >.< But yes, otherwise it's worth to watch.

Have you seen Magic yet? It's a bit messy story but very sad and worth to watch at least once.

I checked out the first pages and remembered these two - Resurrection, All About Eve.

Anyhow, Thank You is on my to-watch list now. Now I'll have something to watch for quite a while. Half of Hello! Miss(this will come somewhere in the middle of everything), Que Sera, Sera, Thank You, Resurrection, Magic, All About Eve and in the middle probably something more cheerful.

I don't think I'll be bothered by skeleton in a dress, I've seen Bodyguard where the main lead was the same, but still, she was cute, despite the bad video quality. ;D

And, as few of you may already know, I listen to K.Will's Dream(A Love To Kill OST) and I just love it. And everytime I watch the MV of the OST, I just get the feeling like(can't explain... addictive feeling... sad at the same time... and a huge desire to watch it and see it again...) back in the old days, when I just started to watch kdramas.

Thanks Ethlenn. I'm watching Ep 10 and not skipped parts yet and you are right no romance. No teary eyed scenes yet. I am just watching hoping it will start getting good at some point since it's 24 episodes. A lot of reviews online say they cried so much on this one so I was hoping we would be crying by now but not yet.

Looked at synopsis for Thank You, I don't like human life reality type really I like more historical and romance comedy and like ones like Love to Kill too. For now, I want to hang on to my seat (can't wait for next episode) cry a whole lot and see nice romance chemistry too. :-(

One more thing..It sucks that they play rock n roll music during fight scenes in Chuno. I wish they would just play traditional music. visual effects are a little cheesy too. I will keep watching it though.

Ok. I watched Chuno and didn't like it at all. Just not my type of historical drama. On to watch new releases of My Princess and then something else.

Who said that Que Sera Sera isn't good? Damn, I have watched about 8 episodes today. Very good drama. Quite strong/bold but good.

You could try searching in Dramawiki...

It's quite complicated, I can't describe it myself.

Where to watch "My Girl"?

Post by LeeSeunggi » Feb 21st, '11, 22:42

Ok, so I'm from United Kingdom, therefore, dramafever website doesn't work.
I went to dramacrazy and mysoju. The quality is sooo poor!
Where can I watch it with better quality?

And yeah, can you recommend me some romance comedy dramas?
Thanks :| :|

Can I just say I fell in love again last weekend and its all because of one little drama called Pasta. I really enjoyed watching Lee Sun Gyun in Coffee Prince and extra loved him in Pasta. There is something about when he smiles and laugh, I have to laugh as well :wub: There was no killing, no real/major sabotage that someone had to die, just something light, romantic, and funny which i majorly needed last weekend.

I really like Gong Yoo he is HOT! :wub: I noticed he hasn't starred in anything recent.

Can anyone recommend dramas like Coffee Prince and Sungkyunkwan Scandal where the girl disguises herself to be a guy?

Gong Yoo has won my heart!!!! :wub:
I love Coffee prince to death no matter what others say....
Another drama that has a girl pretending to be a guy is You're Beautiful...
It's funny as well but the romance isn't as strong as in Coffee Prince..
But I loved it as well

Jang guek Suk is in it!!
:D :-)

I miss Gong Yoo but I am so drooling over Jang guek Suk right now too :w00t: but I didn't like You're Beautiful. I'm not sure why but I didn't like the lead actress acting in this one. I don't think there are many out there where the girl disguises herself to be like a guy...

Really?! :O I will look up the synopsis for that movie. Thanks. I wish there were more where girl pretends to be a guy and then lead male likes her before he finds out.

Ok I will look it up. I know I wish I could try YB maybe I will soon

Finding Mr. Destiny does look really look like good movie! I can tell from the trailer. just keep watching the trailer over and over... :-( Wish I could see the whole movie w/subs though, my friend translates to me sometimes and said she would with this movie but I don't like to hear her talking out loud throughout the movie it makes it hard to hear and get into the movie. Bummer
