I'm no different than the tons of people on this site.
Just a lover of all things drama and film.
I live for moments like this.
Been watching dramas since 2008. I'm a really massive fan of Korean cinema and directors such as Im Kwon-Taek, Park Chan-Wook, Kim Jee-woon, Lee Chang-dong, Jang Sun-woo etc.
Some of my favourite non-asian TV shows: Mad Men, Six Feet Under, Sons of Anarchy, Doctor Who, Being Human (UK), Dexter, Fringe, Community, Sherlock, Modern Family, 30 Rock, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Firefly and so the list goes on forever. Music wise rock music, classical, J-rock and K-pop. If it sounds good it sounds good. :)
What I look for in a drama; Character development, natural chemistry between the actors and most important a female lead I can either like or relate to and a male lead who isn't a backwards 2-dimensional misogynistic alpha male type.
Great actors help make a drama awesome.
SO...MDL Y U NO LET ME ADD MORE FAVOURITES?? In no particular order here are the people who narrowly missed out on the list. Tamaki Hiroshi, EITA, Matsuda Shota and Ikuta Toma. SWOONS. Great actors, great drama/film choices and wonderful work ethic. These guys know how to built natural rapport with other actors on whatever project they're working on.
Tetsuji Tamayama and Michael Zhang. SUPER underrated and versatile! Get a clue Taiwan/Japan...be all over them already! Jang Hyuk and Jerry Yan. Come on..charismatic leading men or what? Ueno Juri, Shinohara Ryoko, Yoon Eun-hye and Kim Sun-A. Kickass performances, play loveable characters or genuinely cool ones in less than typical dramas.
I need more dramas with awesome leading women who are independent, cool and fierce in an understated realistic way. Girls who will say:
People why do we spin endlessly on and on? Is all our spinning round and round just for the sake of finding that certain someone? Or is the thing were always searching for actually ourselves?
