Romantic Princess, but I ditched it for Hana Yori Dango. Been addicted to Johnny's and Japanese dramas since. :P I originally watched it because a friend had a quote on Romantic Princess on her myspace. LOL!

My first was this "90 Days" kdrama... it got kind of boring after a while, and so absurdly dramatic x_X
But, I bore on and found HYD afterwards... which is what really got me hooked on dramas ^^;

First Asian Dram ever that I could really remember would be The Legendary Siblings II with Jimmy Lin and Tae.... but I think i have been watching chinese drama's even before without any subtitles or voice overs that is. This was the first ever show I've seen that I actually understood properly. i saw meteor garden next because everyone in my house hold liked it so much and they all watched the same show....

I stumbled upon HYD and i loved it so researched more about Jdoramas and started my download spree.... I also did watch some Korean stuff to... but that was pretty easy to get since they like showing Korean shows where I come from.

first Korean drama I saw was Emperor Of The Sea. Wasn't that hooked from the beginning, but it started warming up for me in ep. 20 something. And right now, I'm officially addicted to Kdramas :whistling:

If you're talking first as first first, it was the Princess Returning Pearl I....I watched it in China when I was three years old? XDDDD

But if you're talking first drama with Eng subs, and'd be Full House. ^^ Which totally opened my doors Asian drama.

Wow... How did I miss this thread...

My first drama was Bright Girl all the way in 2004 with Jang Nara and Jang Hyuk. Found it on the now gone site suprnova. Saw the name, liked it and decided to try it, not really knowing it was asian. Was suprised by how women got hit and nothing bad happened. Also lack of violance and sex was refreshing and it got me hooked.

oh, this is fun!

well, my first asian drama of all was 'Kurosagi'
I was only into anime till then, but I thought to give it a try and just downloaded the most popular dorama series at that time. aaand... it got me :D
the second one (I need to mention that) was 'Nobuta wo produce'
its still my most god-like dorama ever! :wub:

then I tried chinese ones. first was 'Chinese Paladin'
Im still into it and 'Chinese Paladin' is still my favorite

recently I came upon korean drama
it was just the title that cought my attention, but now I've got a second most god-like drama ever.
'Time between Dog and Wolf'.

seems I've got a talent to pick up the best ones first... wich makes it kinda hard for the others to keep up :roll

It was either Densha Otoko or Hana Yori Dango. I can't remember which one came first. I didn't start watching drama regularly until a while later though and most of the drama series I've watched are a lot older than that. Konna Koi no Hanashi was the one that got me seriously into Japanese drama.

I started with Tenimyu musicals and Seto Koji was in it so when I think about it now, it's probably Koizora the one that got me into this. I'm kinda new to all of this, I've only been watching jdramas for about 2 or 3 months.

Devil Besides You was my first drama as well. :D

At first, I was reluctant to watch dramas, thinking couldn't even compare to anime. However, a friend of my told me about Devil Besides You and I couldn't stop watching it. I saw all episodes in three days.

At the end, though I was really annoyed.
After all they had been through, he just left her for someone who aabandoned him! He is an idiot! If I were her, I wouldn't have taken him back. But, then it wouldn't have been a happy ending.
I still love his motorbike, though. :D [/spoiler]

My first Korean drama was Goong but then I didn't watch anymore Korean drama for over a year until I saw Winter Sonata. After that, my obsession to Korean drama began. I considered Winter Sonata that introduced me to Korean culture and everything about Korea. In spite of many great dramas, Winter Sonata will always have a special place in my heart.

First (and last) kdrama: Boys Over Flowers. Yes, so that means that I only started watching this year. I'm a newbie! :) Anyway, I liked it, so I decided to try the Japanese version. This is the only kdrama I've watched.
First jdrama: Hana Yori Dango. Loved it. And that lead to me watching other jdramas. Jdramas are all I watch now. lol.

Love Letter, with Jo Hyun Jae and Soo Ae. I don't normally watch dramas that make me cry because I hate watching and crying at the same time but I just couldn't stop watching Love Letter. This drama is so beautiful that I just couldn't let go of it. The story has many flaws (what story doesn't?), but Jo Hyun Jae (JHJ) acted so well in this drama that this is a must watch for all JHJ fans. This is his first lead role and he was still very young (early 20s) when he did this but he delivered a very superb performance. I cannot think of any other actor (present crop of K actors included) who could have played the young priest-in-the-making Andrea.

Mine was Densha Otoko and the Korean version of Hana Yori Dango called Boys over Flowers. I watched both at the same time jumping between these two. What I loved about Densha was the people he chatted with online. They were brilliant. He himself cried way too much for my liking. However there were so many funny bits I grew interested.Boys Over Flowers was a bit melodramatic nevertheless I liked it a lot .Those guys were gorgeous.

Then I watched Kekkon Dekinai Otoko and that was it I was hooked on dramas for good.

I watched it thanks to my twin sister, who accidentally found this jdorama - back then we didn´t really know anything about Asian dramas - but we were Japan-addicts thanks to anime and manga already back then. Dramas just made that addiction even bigger - you can say we have a disease now :blink and we´re really really happy about that!!! :D :D The reason why my sister wanted us to see Nobuta, was that it has a great plot and cute actors :P
