Mine was also Beautiful life. Then it was Shiroi Kyoto and then Diamond Girl. Now I'm crying over Densha Otoko. (Edited spelling - thanks!)

The first Jdrama I saw was on TV several years ago, and the English name they gave it was "Refrain," and I just recently figured out its Japanese name was "Meguri ai." It kind of dragged on too much, but I was hooked on it.

My first k-drama was "Autumn in my heart", which I watched in China with my Korean roommates...BUT I don't speak Korean and only knew spoken Chinese then so I didn't really understand (couldn't read Chinese subs). I just sat and watched it all the way through with them because they all said it was really great :lol First drama in Chinese was Meteor Garden, v. different but great too!

I dont know how many years it has been noe, but I was still in school.. I liked watching animes but some day I kinda got bored of anime, so I was looking around and somehow found out, that there was an Action Live Serie named GTO. Hey I watched GTO anime and I liked it a lot, so I thought why not. Got these files and started watching, hell I was addicted from the first minute, after GTO I watched Summersnow and that was the point my fate was decided...... from that point I keep downloading every drama I can find ( J/KOR) ......... I am an ADDICT and I like it :D

First introduction to Drama was Live Action Sailor Moon. I didn't watch it, just flicked through some episodes, and after that stayed away from drama for a long time for good reason. Then someone recommended Gokusen, first drama I watched all of, and I found it average. Then, 4 months without watching any drama, watched the first half of Autumn Tale and been hooked on K-Drama ever since! (which is like 4 weeks :P)

(My second post, only 8 more before I can vote for J-SOTW! :-) )

My very first jdrama--guess I'm about to date myself here--was 'Kirei ni Naritai' back in 1992. Didn't understand a word of it but fell in love with Nakae Yuri ( The very first jdrama I understood (thanks to the subtitles) and that really got me hooked on jdramas was 'Zutto Anata Ga Suki Datta'. The DVD box set is still available on, but of course there are no English subtitles...if only I could find my original VHS tapes!

First kdrama that I watched, finished and liked was Stairway to Heaven. Although I cried a lot while watching it especially near the end I liked it because of the main characters is Kwon Sang Woo??? not sure of his name but anyway I liked him very much...good acting combined with good looks. Before watching it I knew that it had kind of a sad ending so wasn't too much disappointed with the ending. I'd like to see more of KSW you know any? Thanks guys.

my very first drama was Oshin! i watched it when i was just 8 years old but i really cant forget the was so touching! too bad they did not air the whole series here in Manila, they only showed the part when Oshin was just a young girl.
then in 2003, autumn tale was shown here, and i fell in love with the series.
What really got me addicted was GTO, which i saw last year, and ever since i've been collecting dramas. :)

The first Chinese drama that I've seen is Jun Ching (forgot the english name). But it goes wayyy back, so I'm not really sure if that was it. Maybe it could be something else.

The first Korean drama I watched was Endless Love, but I never finished that. Lol. The first finished Korean series I've watched is Full House. xD

The first Taiwan series I've watched and that I remember is Mars. Lol.

As for American series, its gotta be Seven Heaven. Lol.

my first drama was the kdrama Endless Love... some friends from IRC translated it as a holiday project. Back then, I didn't have much contact with other people that watched drama, so I'm not sure if it was ever translated in another version after that..

Years passed by, and around may this year, I watched my first jdrama: Gokusen. I was drawn to it by the fact that I love both the manga and the anime :)

Never watched any K-Drama (although I have Winter Sonata on VCD from a friend).
But if this is a general discussion about Asian dramas... Do dramas from the Philippines count, too? If not, then the first drama I've seen a bit of was Sailor Moon Live Action (shame on me, but hey - I was just being curious. Besides I was in Tokyo at the time and it was for free!). The first drama I've watched more or less completely was Meteor Garden. The first J-drama I've watched (also more or less completely) was Gokusen. I wasn't all too thrilled about the whole make up of the Taiwanese series I had watched so I wasn't really in the mood to watch any other dramas after that. It was only because I'm a huge Hana yori Dango fan that I decided to give Gokusen a chance since Jun (alias Doumyouji in Hanadan) also starred in this. My credits for Gokusen - thanks to them I found out J-dramas ROCK! xD

I think it was the J-drama Beautiful Life. I really don't remember for sure. I've always liked watching Asian drama movies. Somewhere I saw a music video for the opening theme song to the series. It wasn't the actual opening video to the show (although it was similar). One thing led to another and I tried watching the show. I'm so glad I did!

I used to watch TVB dramas when I was a kid, then I stopped completely.....until about few years ago I started watching dramas again (although selective titles and now different genres). I don't watch TVB anymore...

Here's my first in recent years and reason why I watched it :

J Drama - Beautiful Life (Takuya Kimura)
Taiwan Drama - Meteor Garden (F4)
K Drama - Autumn in My Heart (Won Bin)

So the reason is very obvious and's due to the good looking actors!!! ^ ^

Nowadays I just watch Korean dramas.....
