Drama in general, probably Fresh Prince. XD I still love watching that. But JDorama, the only foreign dorama I watch, my first would be Tokyo Wankei.

While staying in japan i wasn't really interested in Doramas, I watched one or two episodes of waterboys 2, gokusen 2,... but i didn't really like it.
But then I started to watch Meteor Garden (yes, on japanese television) because I knew the manga. And I got really addicted!
Later (back in my country) I began to watch a lot of Dramas, I think my first J-Drama was Strawberry on the shortcake (not one of my favourites, but i quite like it)

Ah, the classic: GTO. I loved it at the time, though watching it again I felt there was something missing. Still, it convinced me to move to Japan and teach.

My first drama was Beatiful Life ^^. I thought Asian dramas had to be awful until I accidentally watch this and I realized Japanese TV had something amazing to show(later on I discovered Korean dramas had also interesting offers).

The first asian drama I ever watched was Hana Yori Dango. I didn't finish it though. It just didn't manage to keep my interest until the very end.

The first Korean drama I watched was Goong and from then on I really started to like dramas.

My First drama was 'Attic Cat'..all thanks to the re-runs on AZN.
But after they changed AZN to MTV2..I was really bummed. So i started watching kdramas online.
Then I got into all the good dramas like 'Full house', 'goong', 'My girl', 'Delightful Girl..' Yep. I'm a sucker for romance! :D

one day i was pleasantly surfing on Youtube looking at the top rated videos when I saw... MY GIRL. I thought, gee, this looks interesting! So I watched it.

And continued to watch it.

And didn't sleep just so I could finish watching it.

And then I didn't know what to do... I wanted to watch more shows like it.. and slowly I found more on Youtube, and then on SilentRegrets, until finally D-Addicts.

Hana yori dango was the first drama series I ever watched, after being introduced to it by my housemates, and I loved it. I'm currently sifting through watching the second series and waiting paitently to view episode four. I'm in the middle of watching various other dramas, such as; Hana kimi, regatta and some others that I can't remember the titles of. Basically, I'm hooked.

My first dorama was Densha Otoko, ive seen it in finals of May 2006. I'm sure that my history will be the same than a lot of ppl here =P

In middle May (2006) I was a **** sucky otaku, and this time i was seeing "Hajime no Ippo" by youtube in some web. In this web were too the first 5 caps of a thing named "Densha Otoko", but it wasn't anime, so lets f*** it. One day, by error, i press the caps 2, 3 and 4 of Densha Otoko instead the caps 8, 9, 10 of Hajime no Ippo. When i maximized the cap 2 and click "play", i was like "WTF is it, a real serie with jap ppl?? Meh anyways i havent nothing better to do, ill take a look, anyways it be a lost of time" I found it interesting, so i saw the caps 3 and 4 (that were loaded) and i liked it. So i downloaded all the serie with spanish hardsubs.


Maybe it would hear weird, but i think that "error" has helped me to change my life and find my way of happiness in life (even i lost again after and now im returning to the great way). Im not sure if it was for the Densha Otoko influence, but after see it, i stop being otaku, and with some more things, i was "100% full happy" for first time in all my youngness. After this i become to see more doramas, get into j-music (kmusic after, but im not a kmusic addict), get into azn culture, into my korean identity, etc etc.

So Densha Otoko was my 1st dorama, and i save an unoblivious memory of it. Densha Otoko FTW! XD

Since I'm still pretty new to the world of asian dramas (got obsessed, in fact, just this past November), most of my first dramas are reletively recent ones. First drama EVER was Mars (<3 Vic Zhou!). First kdrama was Stairway to Heaven (which I occasionally rewatch to have a good cry). First jdrama was Hana Yori Dango (ah, Jun...).

When I visited Japan there was one afternoon where I had to spend some time in my hotel room waiting for my friend. I flipped the channels and found a show that looked pretty interesting, and had enough slapstick gags so I could understand it (naturally, Japanese TV has no subtitles :lol ); luckily enough it had an English title so I could look it up back home.

That show was Waterboys, and I've been into drama ever since :lol
