Hi. Could I have some suggestions too? We really liked "my girlfriend is a gumiho", "I am Sam", "Personal Taste", "who are you", "Arang and the magistrate". Not really into cop shows or medical, but happy for comedy and romance, mystery and thriller is good too, as is supernatural. Adult content is fine. We usually watch J-dramas but they tend to be mainly cop and medical now, so dramas to our taste are few and far between. I've looked through recommendations above and I'll try "Protect the Boss".

Two dramas with romance, mystery and a bit comedy that I can recommend is "Secret Garden" and "49 Days".

@piousm

In addition to what airboy recommended, I can recommend 'I Hear Your Voice' and 'You Who Came From The Stars'. They're both supernatural with romance, comedy and some thriller. Also if supernatural with just romance & comedy is fine there is 'The Thousandth Man', which is nice less known drama.

For romance type dramas with comedy:

1. Prime Minister and I
Nothing to serious and it pretty light hearted.

2. Pasta
A food show based on the new head chef falling for an aspiring chef.

3. Masters Sun
A ghost-soul saving type romance comedy. Not super funny, we found it amusing and lighter style.

4. Emergency Couple. Not to much medical though it is mixed in enough to make one "eww" at some scenes. Typical/predictable romance with multiple romance interests that have the usual love triangles to add misunderstandings. At Ep 10 and so far enjoyable.

Is there any kdrama, new or old, that comes close to the uniqueness of what Twin Peaks was when it aired for the first time?

Soul http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Soul was pretty good, and didnt fall into any particular formula. But it wasnt as odd as Twin Peaks.

Kdrama with dogs

Post by suelyharumi » Jul 29th, '14, 14:40


Hello..
I am writing from Brazil and I love kdrama. I am simply addicted to it.
I would like to know if there is any indication for kdrama with dogs.

I translated the movie My Love Tohram and I cried sooo much everytime I
had to translate. Everybody should watch it is really a touching story.

Also, any indication for kdrama that deals with spirituality..

Thank you..

Suely

Any good light-hearted romance comedies?

Post by AppleSky » Sep 7th, '14, 13:50

Hi there!

I am very new to the drama scene and recently stumbled on a show called 'Witch's Romance'. I instantly fell in love with it. The witty dialogue, the chemistry, the light-hearted fluffiness of the whole thing was amazing. It was the first drama I ever really watched and I really enjoyed it.

Now that I've finished watching it I have this very deep pit in my stomach :(

Does anyone here have recommendations for any similar dramas? I've browsed a couple of sites and done some searches, but nothing really stands out. If anyone here has any tips on what to watch next, it would be so appreciated!

Hi Suely, I'm not into kdrama, but my friend recommends Master's Sun
Here is the brief synopsis :lol
Joo Joong Won (So Ji Sub) is a cold and ambitious CEO, who measures all human relationships through money. Tae Gong Shil (Gong Hyo Jin) is a sensitive assistant, who suffers from insomnia, due to her ability to see ghosts after an accident. Joong Won will learn to trust Gong Shil and falls in love with her.
And also Soul
Synopsis
Ha Na and Doo Na were twin sisters who were very close to each other until Doo Na died a terrible death. One day, the usually bright and energetic Ha Na finds herself changing. She has superhuman strength and can do things that nobody can. Ha Na realizes that Doo Na's spirit has inhabited her body. Shin Ryu, a criminal psychoanalyst, uses Ha Na's powers to kill people that cannot be punished by the law.

My opnion. Dr. Frost maintain the style of OCN channel. More focused on police dramas / thriller / supernatural (which is not the case of this). It is well produced and it seems that promises an interesting end. Healer is a bit like City Hunter, with a secret identity, a lot of conspiracy and romance, including the same Leading Actress. rs But it's pretty cool. Punch focuses primarily on conspiracy and battle power. Throughout all this, a corrupt prosecutor who seeks redemption for his life and family, with a brain tumor that gives him 3 months of life. It is interesting and intense at the same time. Hope this helps.

Need suggestions please for dramas about revenge , stuff like Green Rose , Will It Snow For Christmas , The Devil , City Hunter etc.
Don't bother suggesting dramas PRIOR to 2013 because i've seen them all , so let's see: dramas with revenge theme from years 2013 and 2014 , and possibly avoid period/historical dramas and dramas longer than 20 episodes.
Thanks in advance

I just finished 'Empress Ki', what an impressive story; cast, acting was very convincing, especially all the evil/egotism/narcissism traits; ... I loved it

can someone suggest something similar in story depth & acting, preferably something in historic setting (contemporary kdramas just don't work for me, dunno why)

I only watched 3 or 4 kdramas (current "shine or go crazy", "joseon gunman", "arang and the magistrate" )

Thanks in advance

If you say 'revenge', then there are 3 dramas that come to my mind:
1) Healer , end of 2014
2) Pinocchio , end of 2014
3) You're All surrounded , mid 2014

At first you wouldn't say there's revenge in any of those 3, but as the story unfolds, it becomes clearer.
The trouble of being a troubleshooter is that sometimes trouble shoots back.

I'm in love with My lawyer, Mr. Jo. It's serious drama(law) with comedy. Is there any kdrama like that? I think it's similar with jdrama Legal high and Hero, law-comedy

My absolute favorite is the kdrama 'Empress Ki'. check wiki.d-addicts.com if it meets your criteria. There is a torrent on nyaa.se.
