I feel like an old fart at the age of 21, but believe it or not, the first drama I watched was "You're Under Arrest!" with Misaki Ito and Hara Sachie. but what really got me was GTO. But I highly recommend to you all Jyou no Kyoushitsu (Queen's Classroom). It's an amazing series and if you have friends who haven't seen any dramas before and want to start, Jyou is certainly one of the best dramas out there.

Mine was actually Densha Otoko. And I'm only on my second drama now. but I've downloaded the first few episodes of Taiyou no uta as well. I'm going to watch a bit of this and that to find out what I like/dislike. :)

This answer is really stereotypical, but I have to admit that it was Goong. I was a big fan of horror manga (Arm of kannon, Priest etc.) and one day I stumbled over the manga (or manwha) Goong. First I hesitated, since it was shoujo manga, but then I thought, why not? I loved it, and it lead me to asian drama, which I also love. Although I hate admitting it, I find it very embarassing to say that I like romantic dramas. :pale:

First drama I watched... Antique Cake Shop is the very first, however I only watched a couple episodes, so I don't think it really counts. I liked it, but the subs and quality of the version I had were poor, so I didn't end up finishing the whole series. The first drama I watched from start to finish was Goong, and it was what addicted me to drama. I loved it so much I watched it almost non-stop one weekend (skipped a night of sleep to do it) I laughed so hard and cried so much, I was really very excited about Goong. I've watched lots of drama since Goong, and I still laugh and cry while watching. (although I don't ever cry about real life, which is sort of weird) Since Goong was my first it holds a very special place in my heart, and nothing else has touched me as deeply.... I wonder if the second season will be any good. : )

My first drama was Nobuta wo Produce. This rocked and got hooked on to it right after episode 1. The ending was not too bad either and I liked it how Shuuji and Nobuko/Nobuta used Kusano's 'kon' gimmick after a while too. I love Tomohisa Yamashita's acting~!

Starting my second drama now. Shimokita GLORY DAYS. Hope the drama continues~!

The very first drama that I've remember to have saw was this chinese drama in the old TVB days when I was still very small. The name was "Bao Qing Tian" and I remember there were a lot of heads rolling. My first Kdrama was Fullhouse, like many other people, and which started this addiction.

My library has a forgein section with videos, books, and magazines from around the world.
One day I randomly picked on that was Korean just because and it turned out to be the first two episodes of Hotelier. I watched the whole series in the raw in like three days.
My sister bought the dvds just over a month ago and I love it so much ^_^

what is Oshin? Is it Japanese?

Densha Otoko was my first. It's a funny story how I found out about it. A japanese friend told me she was impressed by how many channels we have in america (at college we got cable for free) and that in japan they only have 12 channels. I was like WTF? So I googled japanese TV (I was really bored) and stumbled onto one of the sites (fujiTV I think) and just started playing around there and one of the dramas they had was densha otoko. I was able to get it off DC++ (someone ay my school must have been a drama fan as well) and watched the whole series.

It was broadcast in the 80s and was a hit in the Asia. It's was about the story of the little gal named Oshin who was born in the poor rural area of Japan. How she faces and overcome lots of difficulties from pre-war to post-war period and until the rise of Japan's economy.

The information can be found @ Drama Wiki

Other than the movie ET, this drama was one of those I remembered till now.
I'm surprised :O that Tanaka Yuko (who played Oshin's character), will be in the up-coming drama Tokyo Tower :roll
I will sure look out for it here :-) got to see how she looks like after all these years... :mrgreen:

Indeed, it was one of the main drama that started the jdrama craze in Taiwan in late 80's. But I wasn't in Taiwan back then, so never got a good copy. only saw a few eps. felt a little too melodramatic, but probably because I was watching it in the middle

Gosh, 59 pages to go through? I'll just post my firsts first then...hehehehe (lazy is my middle name).

My firts J-drama: O-Shin, I saw it many many many many years ago, on my country's national channel (VTV), dubbed of course, back in the day when they aired cool shows from all over the world. I was soooo hooked, it was such a different show from anything else that I watched at the time, and my obssession with all things japanese was starting.

My first K-drama: Stairway to Heaven, I saw it on Chile's international channel, dubbed. I liked it but there were a lot of things that I thought "we do it better here in latin-america"... then I remembered, it was shown here in Venezuela! on VTV again! I remembered watching Choi Ji Woo welcoming people to watch the drama and everything! I couldn't believe it.
Well, that's just my luck, things like that always happen at times when I don't know anything, then it's too late to fully enjoy... :lol

I recently have gotten into JDramas. I have Korean friends, so we watch Korean movies together occasionally. They are very good, sad especially, but I am learning Japanese, so I prefer the JDramas. Plus, life in Japan is a lot more interesting. :_
One summer, I just turned on the TV and "Dare Yori mo Mama wo Aisu" was on. I was hooked, even though it was already the 7th episode. And so, I found it on d-addicts and instantly fell in love with it. But... it isn't my favorite. I didn't know how good jdramas could be until I saw Sapuri and even 14 sai no haha!! :whistling:

But if you ask me:
What is the first J-drama? Tokyo Cinderella (can't remember the name correctly)
What is the first K-drama? All about Eve (classic)
What is the first C-drama (from China)? Kang Xi di guo (always love those historical drama!)

I never really into T-drama... The first T-drama (I really finish): Princess Pearl I
