Sweet 18 is my favourite.
Just introduce a woman, - Conspiracies succeed; - Of soldiers or their weapons, - There really is no need. - They fought their bloody battles, - And doughty deeds were done; - but in a garden summer house - The victory was won.

Hands down, the best comedy is Tiger & Dragon.

The level of complexity is unrivalled by any other drama.

You have the classic rakugo story which is genuinely funny.
Then you over lay that with a contemporary version of the classic rakugo story.
Next you add pop culture references to that in each of the episodes.
And finally you string them together to create an overarching story from the pilot episode to the final episode.

No other show comes close to rivalling this.

I would suggest Gokusen as the best romantic comedy. I couldn't stop watching it, it had just enough romance/drama but the comedy was really charming ^_^b

I just finished watching Kimi wa Petto, I would suggest that especially if you like the actor Jun Matsumoto (who was also in Gokuksen). It's a short series, and the concept may seem odd in that a woman keeps a younger man as a "pet" but I never found it too weird and the bond between them has many layers.

I would also suggest Devil Beside You. A lot more drama/romance than the other two titles, but Rainie is hilarious, I LOVE her facial expressions :D It's a great drama.

I think that Mars is a must see... but that's because I fell in love with the manga...

I'm still pretty new to d-addicts so that's all I can suggest for now.

Best new finished dramas (with completed english subtitles)

Post by alcozar » Feb 18th, '06, 09:40

When I check the subtitles thread, I always like to get fully completed dramas if possible (even though I follow dramas like Goong/Princess Hours weekly for the next episodes).

There are so many dramas that are translated in english at the moment that it is hard to know what to watch next.

Out of the current batch of finished dramas, I have enjoyed Ai no Uta, A Love to Kill, My Girl. Devil Beside You, Glass Mask (season 2) and Kiken no Aneki (as well as other dramas but these come to mind atm).

Any other recommendations as there are many other newly finished dramas like Green Rose, Wedding, e.t.c in the "INDEX LIST of All Subtitle Threads" that I have not watched (and the list is ongoing).

I need a recommendation for a J-drama. Generally, I'd like to see drama with a good dose of comedy. Nothing too melodramatic, either. And it would be nice if they have subs. So far the only ones I've seen are Densha Otoko and Star no Koi, and I've enjoyed both rather well.

Thanks,

Which dramas have you watched already??

Post by kawaiineemei » Mar 8th, '06, 04:34

FULL HOUSE was my first korean drama. ever since then, its hard to stop watching kdramas. that and any other dramas available out there .. like TWdramas and even jdramas - jdoramas. ahhh! how addictive. if anyone warned about how addictive itd be, i would still watch it all.

So far, after watching FULL HOUSE i've watched (in sequential order to which ones I watched) ....

2.) SWEET 18 -------- LEE DONG GUN is such a cutee in there! along w/ adorable HAN JI HYE

3.) I'M SORRY I LOVE YOU ------- SO JI SUP & IM SOO JUNG made my heart ache so badly and finally gave in and let out a stream of tears after watching the end. ahhhH! and yet, i'd watch it all over again.

4.) MY BOYFRIEND IS TYPE B ---------- i couldn't get enough of LEE DONG GUN & HAN JI HYE so i watched another drama with them together! well .. its a movie really, not a drama.

5.) HE WAS COOL ----- cute movie. im a sucker for bad boys and the ending, was .. ::sigh:: sweet!

6.) MY TUTOR FRIEND
-------- cute movie too. i love guys on bikes.

7.) HANA YORI DANGO LIVE ACTION DRAMA ----- OGURI SHUN & MATSUMOTO JUN .. ::DROOL::

8.) KIMI WA PETTO ----- MATSUMOTO JUN!!!!!!!! KAWAiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!!!!!!!!!

9.) MY LITTLE BRIDE ---- cute story.

10.) MY LOVELY SAM SOON
--------- HYUN BIN & KIM SUN AH were utterly adorable together.


11.) GOKUSEN
----- more of MATSUMOTO JUN!!!! AND OGURI SHUN!!!!!!!

12.) NOBUTA WO PRODUCE
----- the first time i ever saw YAMASHITA TOMOSHIA (yampi) & KAME... *JAW DROPS* YAMASHITA IS SOOOOO CUTE! i loved him in this drama. KAME was just simply kool.


13.) 1 LITRE OF TEARS
---- it really is 1 litre of tears. cos i cried like a baby at the end. its a true story. it really touched me deeply.

14.) ISWAK - IT STARTED WITH A KISS
------- once i saw the first episode i was hooked! i coudln't get enough of ARIEL LIN & JOE CHANG. They were really cute in this drama. I LOVED IT! I can't wait for the sequel... i can't believe i have to wait till 2007... A WHOLE YR? gyahh!

15.) 100 DAYS WITH MR. ARROGANT
--- really cute story!

16.) S DIARY
--- KIM SUN AH was great in this movie. its a great movie too. it really leaves you in awe.

17.) MARRY SCHOOL GIRL
--- funny

18.) SNOW WHITE: TASTE SWEET LOVE
---- at first I thought, this looks .. interesting. and then as I watched it, it got even MOOOOORE interesting! and I ended up loving every min of it! LEE WAN & KIM JUNG HWA were so adorable!! :] after watching this series, i was contemplating on finally getting contacts. mm!

19.) PLEASE TEACH ME ENGLISH!
---- aww!! JANG HYEOK was so romantic when he said "no i love you sounds better in korean." :::awwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!::: SARANG HAYEO! and you know, i AGREE!! saying i love you in korean really does sound better.

20.) ART OF SEDUCTION
---- after all the tearjerkers and the haertachingly romantic dramas i needed something funny. THIS MOVIE WAS IT! but it was still lovey dovey. ... and i wasn't complaining!

21.) LOVE CONTRACT
---- another drama starring ARIEL LIN. pretty different from her character her ISWAK but her acting is still as awsome as ever! she draws me in like crazy. and its the first time i ever saw MIKE HE. Cute guy. but. ...

22.) DEVIL BESIDE YOU
---- .... i love him better in this drama. MIKE HE!! SEXY SEXY BAD ASS. RAINE is so so adorable! her facial expressions are so funnie! i love it! while i was watching this drama i couldnt help how familiar the story line was and then i remembered, its based on a manga that i read like a year ago: AKUMA DE SOURO. great manga by the way --- but still haven't read all of it yet.

**** wow! i watched that many already?!! i didnt even notice.. yep. im definitely addicted. ***


hmmm... what other dramas should i watch? reccommendations neone??

Not my favourite but i would recommend the korean dramas 18 vs 29 and Ms Kims Million Dollar Quest (to anyone who likes the comedy dramas like Full House, Attic Cat, My Girl, Delightful Girl Choon Hyung, e.t.c).

These dramas are two of the better ones of the recent kdramas so far imo...

My favorites

1) My Name Is Kim Sam Soon - My favorite drama of all times. It really sticks out from all the rest. It will definately make you feel good about yourself and about life in general.
2) My Girl - Sooo funny and touching at the same time.
3) Hana Yori Dango - It's so stylized and interesting. I love how a girl can change a man so much.
4) My Love Patzzi - Just because it's funny and my first asian drama.
5) Goong - I've fallen in Love with all of the characters, both good and bad.

I can go on and on but I'll better stick to these 5 :-)

Top Dramas on my list: (in no particular order)

J-Drama
Pride - sports-type romance
Gokusen - The first season was awesome (although it kinda got redundant after awhile)
Kimi Wa Petto - JUN!!! hehe, it's a pretty cute story
GTO - who has not seen this?

K-Drama
*All About Eve - One of the earliest I've seen, it's a really sweet story
*My Girl - The best ever!! (i loved it waay over Full House) It's hilarious and sweet!
My Name is Kim Sam Soon - Another hilarious romantic story
*Dae Jang Geum - The coolest ever!! I definitely recommend it, it's really long and ADDICTIVE!! AAAH!!

Tw-Drama
*It started with a kiss - my favorite tw drama!! it's soo cute, and the acting is awesome, (well..compared to Meteor Garden) I cannot wait until season 2 comes out!!!
Meteor Garden - My first tw drama, it's a great story, but the acting is a little....off?
Devil Beside You - this one's sweet, but the ending was just wierd
Love Contract - Again the ending was wierd. This would actually probably be at the bottom of my top list (if that makes sense)
*Prince Turns into Frog - very cute and awesome story ^^

* = my favorite dramas overall

Dramas that i'm currently watching or am interested in watching
Winter Sonata - yeah, i know i should've seen it a while ago, but just never got to it

So anyone seen Devil Beside you? I think im going to start that when i finish "Save the last dance for me" it looks good, and im not a person who doesnt like draggy dramas, i sorta enjoy them. the more drama the better. And i like to switch out my dramas, like if i just saw a really sad one the next one i watch is full of comedy. and so on...so does anyone know if Devil Beside you is good?

wow, so many good dramas...

my top favs so far are (not in any particular order):

korean:

1.)My Girl- really funny, really cute, the main couple were adorable, lee jun ki was awesome, just a really fun watch and it's depressing when it's over!! It's incomprehensible that anyone would get bored watching this...I loved every minute of it!
2.) A love the kill- Bi was kick ass in here. I really liked the plot and suspense. I also really liked the torn emotions that Bi's character had to go through...Bi acted out the character reaalllyy well. The filming was beautiful, the soundtrack is kick ass, and the lead female actress is really pretty and acts really well. The chemistry was great to watch. I was always dying to know what was going to happen next, they did a really good job in capturing audiences during each episode. I loved it to pieces. The ending was bittersweet though, but still satisfying
3.) Delightful Girl Chunyang- by the same person who directed (?) My Girl. Another really really fun watch. I watched this after My Girl but I still like My Girl better just because the story was more entertaining. But really, the characters in here (particularly Jae Hee) were hilarious and the story was cute, the main couple was cuuuteee and jae hee was just cuuuuttee.. It was just cuteness. If you miss the feeling you get while watching My Girl (or the other way around, whichever is first) I suggest you watch this. This should satisfy your thirst for funny, romantic dramas that aren't too intense and have sweet endings
4.)Goong- Based on a manhwa. I really really liked this one two, but mostly in the beginning and at the end. The middle was just a tad draggy and just frustrating at times, but still watchable because of the eye candy and the fact that you had to finish it becuase it really is a good series. I loved watching the character development especially. That was one aspect that made watching this so fun. The lead male character especially. You just want to squish him at the end (I mean that in a good way). Oh, the protagonist you can't help but love and feel bad for too. Definately a must watch for every k-drama fan...especially since it's probably one of the most popular seeing the amount of hits and forum discussions it has gotten.
Oh, the soundtrack= :D


As for J-dramas....:

hehe^^
current favs:
1.) Kurosagi- Awesome story and characters!! I love yamapi and maki in here. Plus I get to see them in a romance that I missed in nobuta! So far I'm really liking it.
2.) Attention!- This really is entertaining. The main character is really really funny!!! I haven't gotten bored watching it yet. Every episode so far has been a fun ride. Plus I lvoe watching dramas that deal with airplanes, flight attendents and pilots. I love the thought of traveling like they do. Really interesting and fun show.
past favs:
1.) Orange Days- I really loved the storyline of this movie, and the characters as well. I could relate a lot to this story. I think most people can, especially those graduating from school and transitioning into adulthood. I really loved that part of this drama. Not only was it a very sweet romance story( and meaningful love story, and a reallly sweet male lead guy who you wish was your bf) it wasn't solely a romance theme when you payed attention to the other aspects. You really got a more intimate look and feel of the characters. I liked it a lot. I was sad when it ended, but also very satisfied. It was the first drama that actually caused me to sit back in my chair and be reflective ^^;; Oh, I also really liked the soundtrack. I listened to it for days.
2.) Kimi wa Petto- very very cute drama. MatsuJun was really cute in here! And he's a really good dancer. It was just a tid bit wierd with the intense dog fetishes. I mean, I love my dog too, but I didn't think people read that deeply into human's attachments to dogs. but, there wouldn't be this drama without it so...(this was based off a manga too so...)
anyways...I didn't quite know what to make of the relationship between the 'pet' and the 'owner', but I loved the series to pieces nonetheless. A really fun watch
3.) Pride- I actually got so pumped up watching the hockey scenes in this drama. I also really got into the music. It was my first time watching the male lead actor in a drama so I really liked his character ^^ But after watching him in a lot of his other dramas after it got repetitive and sadly a bit boring. He should play a different kind of character for once! Still, this is a really good sports romance drama.
4.) Nobuta wo Produce- Definately a must watch!!! I loved this series a ton as well! One of my top top favs under orange days. It was an awesome experience watching it...the soundtrack and characters kicked ass. It focused more on friendship other than romance though, since friendship was the overall theme of the drama. It was a meaningful drama. Though the ending i found to be a bit...gay? I dunno...I thought it was quite shonen ai, even though the characters really aren't gay, and are just friends. It's just that last scene was yuhhh...wierd for me. And I kept wishing for romance btw nobuta and akira. But it wasn't meant to be, sadly. It was a really sweet drama though. Highly recommended
5.) Long Vacation- I forget what exaclty about this drama I liked so much. I mean, I watched the whole thing in one day, straight. It was that good. It's just that cramming things makes me forget....anyway, the actor from Pride is in this one, playing the same kind of cold, cool character. Anyway, I recommend this series to watch when you just want to wind down from a hectic schedule and watch something not too intense. I felt very relaxed watching this series...and it was funny as well. It's a bit old (I think 90s?) but still very good.
6.) Hana Yori Dango- Ahh, good times, good times. Also a really good watch, and a really good soundtrack. The quality of the show was great. I actually like the different take on the school and characters. It's a cool, modern version. I just didn't like how Rui wasn't Rui enough!! I can't wait for the following season. Which better happen. I love the manga. I felt like the drama was too short thogh for the manga. Meteor Garden's length was more appropriate. 11 episodes just doesn't cover the manga as much as it should be.



As for taiwanese dramas...I'm always a bit turned off by them. I watched Meteor Garden, and I really liked it at the time. It was my first asian drama and based off one of my favorite mangas after all. But the acting was pretty bad.And the quality was very low.
I've tried watching others after it but I just didn't like the acting and quality of the filming. The actors always seem so stiff to me and the quality is just....bad. I dunno. I'm going to try watching It started with a kiss since it seems really popular. I hope it doesn't disappoint.
So there ya goes for my rankings&reviews. And I know the reviews aren't necessary....I'm just bored right now is all and felt like reminiscing about the good dramas I've watched in the past...
