My name is Meng and I am fairly new to dramas, having started watching them in... 2016 I think, but I grew up watching HK and Chinese movies, mostly action and martial arts. To this day martial arts and crime movies are my favourite - I did some MA myself, from aikido and BJJ when I was a kid to a more recent kickboxing or a brief adventure with muay thai. Other than action-packed stuff, I also enjoy all kinds of `artsy` festival movies but I do not discard any genre as long as the content is good.
When it comes to music, I listen to almost every genre possible in many languages... Korean, Mandarin, Canto, Thai, Vietnamese... You name it.
Oh, I'm not a big fan of Japanese music. I used to be an anime fan /for over 10 years... Thankfully not anymore/ and I have a slight PTSD :D
I am a *big* fan of Lau Andy, be it his music or acting skills. I will hunt down and watch all of his movies, sooner or later :P
My first drama watched willingly and with intent, not only because it was on TV?
Descendants of The Sun
Many people say it's overrated, but I loved the bromance and all that military-related stuff in the background. Sorry for disappointing you, fight me if you disagree (((:
Korean Drama - Descendants of The Sun
Hong Kong Drama - A fist within Four Walls
Chinese Drama - Infernal Affairs
Thai Drama - Sotus: The Series
Taiwanese Drama - History: Stay Away From Me
Japanese Drama - Signal Choki Mikaiketsu Jiken Sosahan
First asian movie?
I don't remember. I am sure that as soon as I was born, my dad took me to watch some Bruce Lee movies with him. Thanks dad, that stuff is perfect for an infant! I grew up with HK martial arts masters :)
The most favouritest and bestest movie ever?
The New World
It took 無間道 and remade it into something even better than the original. Everything in it was perfect, the plot, the soundtrack, characters...
Oh, and all of them look awesome in suits.
/it's not a remake per-se, but iirc creators were highly influenced by Infernal Affairs/
