You'll never see great lines like this in American television.
I saw this on someone else's page and thought I should do a little updating so you know more about me:
General dramas questions you might ask me:
I probably started seriously watching asian dramas in about 2012 when my daughter was home from school for the holidays and suggested we watch Goong.
As of today, I’ve listed 163 finished dramas but as I started watching two years before I found MDL, I’ve probably watched more.
I still love Korean dramas the best but Chinese and Thai dramas are up and comers for me.
My favorite drama of all time might be In Time With You but I’ve rewatched Scarlet Heart a zillion times so I’m not sure anymore! I think I like historical dramas the most followed by romance or mystery. The drama that I obsessed the most about so far has got to be Scarlet Heart: Ryeo. I live watched in over my phone (after clearing my mornings for those two days!), watched it subbed in the afternoon and posted a long series of commentaries on my Tumblr page. I still miss it even though it was not my favorite story.
I regret watching Boys Over Flowers. I know that was a starter drama for a lot of people but practically every one of those characters were horrible and the only ones I liked got pushed out of the story line.
My favorite older drama is the Thai drama Sai Roong from 1998. It has the young lovely Anne T. as the heroine and the weirdly attractive (it certainly can’t be for his acting!) Johnny Anfone as the hero. I probably re-watch this every couple of months. My favorite older k-drama is 1% of Anything because of Da Da’s wonderful family.
Best Wedding is the most recent drama to bother me. I loved all the characters and all the actors but the storyline was just wretched. I’d like to watch a re-cut version where everyone gets a happy ending and Park Tae Yeon’s family dies in a horrible plane crash.
As of today, I’m really enjoying Goblin. An upcoming drama that I’m really excited about is General and Me, a Chinese drama based on the book “A lonesome fragrance waiting to be appreciated.” It’s a good story and I’m looking forward to what they make of it - good or bad.
