My first Drama was a Chinese one, Judge Pao, not the recent one but one from way back in the late 70's. It was broadcast here in the US with Chinese and English subs. That's the only one who's title I remember, there was another one I really liked about a security escort beurau, and one about the Shaolin Temple.

First drama ever watched was Attention Please. After seeing the movie Azumi more Aya Ueto had to be found. Found Attention Please here and have also gotten Attack No. 1, Koukou Kyoshi, and Ace no Nerae.

Hmmm... I think it was either the Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Live-Action or Kimi wa Petto. =3 Either way, it was Kimi wa Petto that spurred me on to eventually discover and love other series. GTO was my next big love, and now it's Densha Otoko. <333 Because even otaku need love. Hehe. =3

I guess you're a big fans of Aya Ueto, coz the dorama you mention above was played by Aya.

For me the first dorama I saw was... Oshin... It was so long ago I've barely forget it... May be it was a big hit when I in kindergarten....

my first drama was full house.
i don't even know how i chose that one...i think because the rental place down the street started carrying all the kdrama dvds and full house was the only one that had a summary that made sense on the box =)
but that was it-i'm an addict i'm starting on twdramas and jdramas too now. uh oh.....

Meteor Garden! Subsequently, Meteor Garden II killed off my interest in dramas. Interest in dramas was rekindled after watching Mars recently. Since then I've watched It Started with a Kiss, Tian Wai Fei Xian, Devil Beside You (love those 3!), and Love Contract (found it quite blah). Currently hooked on Silence and Tokyo Juliet. :lol

First J-drama I watched was something starring Kimura Takuya. The J-drama I remember best is Power Office Girls (really funny).

First K-drama for me was Autumn in my Heart. The story was soooo slow, but couldn't stop watching it cos of Won Bin... :P Haven't watched that many K-dramas cos I find them rather slow, but I liked Full House. :)

My first ever was Journey to the West. I saw this thing even before I knew Disney existed (of which I was hooked and wasted the next 6 or so years of my life on). Then followed the wuxia series of Jin Yong (Semi-Gods, Demi Devils, Condor Series, etc...) So now I have a biasy towards CDramas (HK and TW included) and feel bad whenever anyone bashes them and/or refuse to watch anything besides K & J Dramas.
First "idol series" I watched was ITSWaK... not too bad...
First K Drama was Sad Love Story
First J Drama was Hana Yori Dango

Densha Otoko was the first one I ever watched and now I'm pretty much hooked...
the bad thing is that there are some many good c-j-k-dramas out there, I don't know where to start... it's a bit overwhelming trying to catch up with the old and new dramas...

UMMM...I think that Stairway to Heaven was my korean drama.It was a Chinese DVD and the english sub's were really really bad. I cried :cry: through the whole series, it was the saddest thing that I had ever seen.After that I didn't want to see another korean drama because I hate to cry but one of my friends forced me to watch My love Patzzi. And as the story goes i became a drama addict. :D

My first drama was Kimi Wa Petto. I was so excited when I heard there was a live action version of that manga. It's been down hill sense. I'm just not getting the levels of romance and angst I need from anime anymore, so I must go elsewhere. Asian entertainment is like crack.

The first one I ever saw was Mars. Someone was rabbiting about it on Livejournal. I managed to download a few episodes but it was taking too long and i found it on Youtube. I didn't get any sleep for two nights while I watched that. This was about three weeks ago and I've been hooked ever since.

What? There's drama of Mars? o____o I read the manga few years ago and it wasn't half-bad. Now I have to search the drama and see it~

My first drama was Yamato Nadeshiko. I accidentally took wrong torrent from mognet's lists [I think I was going to download PV...] last spring and after I got the file and opened it, were surprised because it wasn't what I was waiting for.
I didn't watch it right away. One day I had nothing to do so went and watched it. Wasn't bad or good, but I just became interested in j-dramas because of it.

Post by anva91 » Aug 16th, '06, 18:34

my first drama was MARS....I found online an article about how deeply romantic and stuff the manga was but couldnt find the manga for ANY TYPE of download ANYWHERE! when i hear that there was only a live-actio drama based on the manga i decided to give it a try.... and COMPLETELY changed my view on foreign entertainment...if before i couldnt POSSIBLY imagin foreign movies/shows, then NOW im one of the biggest asian drama addicts ever...and of course MARS itself is STILL my favorite drama ever!! (next to "kamisama mou sukoshi dake) of course =].... Both of these stories are so moving and deep and dark and just BEAUTIFUL acting and original storyline! id suggest MARS and Kamisama Mou Sukoshi Dake to everyone !!!! =]

My first drama was Hana Yori Dango. My sister, who is big into Anime and Manga and at the time obsessed with Densha Otoko, forced me to watch it while we were on a road trip because we had nothing better to do. Hana Yori Dango is actually the only manga/anime that I really truly adore, so I figured I'd give it a shot. And it was great!

My first Tw drama was Meteor Garden, the Tw version of Hana Yori Dango, and that was good also. But the one I watched right after that, Mars, was excellent! Anva9, I totally agree with you!

My first drama was Gokusen. I don't remember what got me watching that drama, since I never read the manga or watched the anime. I think it was an online friend that told me to watch it because it was funny, so I did. I never got to finish it though (need to see the last episode), since I started watching Antique (which I also didn't finish) and Kimi wa Petto (first drama I completed). I have yet to get back to jdramas... been watching too many kdramas.

First Japanese drama was ONe litre of tears. Everyone recomended it, and then finaly I got it. LOVED it, cried in 10 episodes like twice!

my first Korean drama was A love to Kill and My Girl. but it sucked because I only saw it in the Philippines and I was there only two months. so I didnt finish it or start it even. Plus, it was dubbed, and I dislike greatly dubbed work. So now Im downloading as we speak, and seeding sucks =_=

Hoshi no Kinka... watched it sooo long ago i can barely remember the whole story.. only remember it was a fantastic drama.. Sakai Noriko and her sign language was just the cutest thing ever back then!

Trying soo hard to find this series again... no seeds left here and can't find it anywhere else. hopefully it might become a JSOW / JSOM again!!
