Hiya...I'm a 36 year old Black woman. I've been watching Asian dramas since I was a kid. Mainly Japanese. My dad was a jujitsu/judo sensei and his sensei was Japanese. So my dad learned a lot of Japanese and would introduce us to the films from the country.
So I was watching Jdoramas for decades. Then as a teenager I got into Kdramas---I'm talking about way before Lee Byun Hun was popular. As for Chinese/Taiwanese. My favorite director is from China---and some of my most favorite films are from China...which led me into Hong Kong & Taiwanese dramas---that was over 15 years ago. Lakorns (Thai dramas) are my most recent dramas. I used to even sub for them (I cleaned up the English and set up the timing). Which I got into more than 10 years ago.
This also doesn't include my foray into Turkish dramas (which are wow...just wow), Telenovelas, Brazilian dramas (and those are REAL dramas--damn) and all things Indian. I also watch a great deal of Filippino dramas (but more sporadically than all of the above).
