My first Korean drama would be FULL HOUSE. And it kept me addicted. It was so weird cause I wouldn't hear the Korean words, I just hear sounds. And i didn't know about soft subs, so i watched it scrolling down the subtitles on the side.

I love FULL HOUSE but i saw the last episode first when it was on TV. But back then, I didn't know what it was called. All i knew was that i wasn't comming to my friends house and at 9:50 her and her sister screamed FULL HOUSE, and everything stopped and they watched the episode.

To Heart with Fukada Kyoko and Doumoto Tsuyoshi (sp?)

It really opened my eyes on what Japan was like. Haha prior to that I had this feeling of wanting to go to Japan really badly. Then when I watched it I had this scared feeling because Japan was so different. I still really wanna go though. After watching Lost in Translation I realized how weird it can be to visit another country, but I know when I go it'll be a good experience!

First Japanese movie that I watched was a Godzilla movie but I forgot the names. :lol:

dunno if you've seen it before, but if you want to check out another series featuring an Utada Hikaru song, there's HERO starring Kimura Takuya and Matsu Takako... the supporting cast rocks too. It's ending theme is "Can You Keep a Secret" and Hikki even cameos in one eps... it's a short season, but there's a long obvious pause to make the audience notice... that and her bad acting. hahaha
Yup it was Forbidden Love, and I do have that show but I just haven't gotten around to finishing it. And yeah, that was a nice surprise with Hikki's cameo on Hero. Waitress, yeah? They sure as hell made sure to focus on her for a few seconds... not that I minded, of course.

Over the past few years, I’ve watched two of Miyazaki’s movies (Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke) and few martial arts flicks. I enjoyed them, but nothing about them made me think I’d like Jdramas.

This past spring however, once Smallville and 24 had their season finales, I realized that for the next few months, there would be absolutely nothing on U.S. TV worth watching. So, I began looking for something different, and I eventually found Gokusen posted on another website. (That person said he got the eps from D-addicts, which is how I found this site.) The premise did sound interesting, but I confess the main reason I decided to download it is because Yukie Nakama looked amazingly hot in screenshots he posted.

Gokusen turned out to be a huge surprise; I absolutely loved it and quickly began looking for other dramas. I started out with Trick Season One, and then moved on to the incredible Densha Otoko. I’m currently watching Kikenna Aneki and I saw the first three eps of Hana Yori Dango over the weekend.

Besides the beautiful leading ladies, these shows are genuinely funny and I also like the fact that the characters generally seem a bit more innocent than their American counterparts. Besides the lack of humor, I’ve grown weary of the ultra-cynical and sarcastic characters I see on American shows. I think another reason I enjoy Jdramas is the novelty. Japanese culture is still pretty new to me and there are all kinds of little quirks that continue to surprise me almost every time I watch an episode of one of these shows. I’m constantly chuckling to myself and thinking “wow, that would never happen in U.S. TV.” Perhaps this novelty will eventually wear off, but for now I’m really enjoying it.

That’s my story. Let me conclude by throwing out another word of thanks to the diligent fansubbers who work so hard on these shows! :-)

My first drama would be Meteor Garden 1 that was about 2-3 years ago . I think that also started a trend in Asian dramas here in our country . It was Chinese series first Lavender, My MVP Valentine then they introduced Korean drama with Endless Love and up to now there are lots of Kdrama that comes and goes. I recently started Jdoroma with HYD and totally loved it , I'm currently watching Gokusen and D/L 1 litre of tears .
I love Asian dramas ...

Maybe you meant Forbidden Love with Hideaki Takizawa (from Tackey & Tsubasa) who plays a student and falls in love with his teacher? that's the first j-drama I watched.
The first k-drama was Full House and first Taiwan-drama Mars.

I would recommend Full House to get started with dramas as well :thumleft:

I started watching Asian dramas when I was a little kid - all of them are HK ones and I just started rewatching a lot of them several years ago - as I don't remember anything from way back then.

Chinese drama: either Chor Lau Heung (for martial arts) or Police Cadet II (I watched the first part after II)

Taiwan drama: Meteor Garden 2 years ago - since then I try to watch other TWdramas but the problem is I don't understand Mandarin and there aren't that many english subbed TW dramas compared to J-Dramas.

Japanese drama: 4 years ago? GTO - I liked the series but didn't think it was that great so GTO didn't really get me into watching more jdramas. It was only when I watched the 3 Swordsman that got me more interested in jdramas.
