Death Note: Shinigami by behindinfinity



In 2008 I stumbled onto a "Death Note" cosplay photo on deviantART.  I had no clue what Death Note was, but the photo really captured my interest, so I looked up Death Note on Wikipedia and then went searching for the series.  After watching it, I was hooked, and started seeking out more Anime...

Which then led me to Manga, and to various live action adaptations, and other Japanese movies...

Which then led to South Korean and Thai movies...

Which then led to Japanese, Taiwanese, Chinese, Thai, and South Korean dramas!

The theme songs in Death Note also sparked an interest in Japanese music, and subsequently in music from other Asian countries (Thailand, Taiwan, South Korea, Mongolia, China, Indonesia, and Vietnam).

It's funny how one little cosplay photo opened up a whole new world of entertainment for me. :D

Scarlet Heart Ryeo - Scene Differences & Download Links

Asian Streaming & Download Website List



I enjoy a lot of different genres and themes, but there's two that I try to avoid like the plague:

Tragedies > There's nothing I hate worse than a tragic ending, especially if the story is a romance and one (or both) of the main leads / love interests dies.  It just leaves me feeling crappy, miserable, and depressed for days, and I really don't want that in my entertainment.

Infidelity > This is a close runner-up to Tragedies.  I abhor people who cheat in real life, and I definitely don't want to watch it in my entertainment either.  The only exception to this would be if the story was in a genre other than "romance", with a revenge theme, and the cheater ultimately gets what's coming to them... preferably a slow, painful death. :)


As for my Likes... I have quite a few genres, sub-genres, and themes/tropes that I adore:

Time-Travel > This is one of my top faves.  Specifically, romances with a modern-day woman traveling back into the distant past, or a man from the distant past traveling forward to the modern-day.  South Korean time-travels set in the Joseon era (or further back) are my absolute fave!

Gender-Benders > Another one of my top faves, with girls disguised as boys (again, in the romance genre).  I don't care how many times this has been done... I hope they keep making these until the Earth implodes.  I'll never get tired of them.  Never.  :D

Gay (M/M) / Boys Love > I adore a good, romantic BL story with a happy ending!  But anything with strong themes of gay bashing/brutality, terminal diseases, and tragic endings go directly to my avoid list.  I'm sick to death of all the miserable, crappy, depressing stories in the LGBT genre.  But on the up-side, there seems to be quite a lot more positive, happy, romantic movies/dramas being made in the past few years.

more to come later...  



I use a 5-star rating (with no half-stars), so my ratings translate to 2-4-6-8-10 here at MyDramaList.  

I also rate based on personal enjoyment, not critical deconstruction.


★☆☆☆☆ (MDL-2) 

Really awful, complete snooze-fest, couldn't even watch it because of audio problems (mainly with Chinese/Taiwanese dramas), etc.  Do not recommend.

  ★★☆☆☆ (MDL-4) 

Wasn't completely awful, but I either did not finish, or it had some elements that interested me enough that I struggled through to the end... and then regretted wasting my time.  Do not recommend.

  ★★★☆☆ (MDL-6) 

Just average.  Not bad, but not especially great or memorable either.  A decent choice if you've got nothing better to watch.

★★★★☆ (MDL-8) 

Better than average and very enjoyable, but lacking a little "something" that didn't make it a "wonderful" watch for me.  Recommended.

  ★★★★★ (MDL-10) 

Really, really wonderful!  Couldn't stop watching, marathon'd it in 2-3 days (if it was a drama), and probably wanted to watch it all over again as soon as I was finished.  :P  Highly recommended!



A few of my favourite actors, who I think are wonderfully talented and exceptionally good-looking. :D


#1 Top-Fave: Oh Man Suk

I absolutely loved him in The Vineyard Man and The True Colors

I usually don't get silly and fan-girly over celebrities, but there's something about this man that just pushes all my buttons.  His acting always has me completely transfixed, and I find him incredibly attractive.  Plus, the characters he plays in The Vineyard Man and The True Colors are both the type of men I would want to marry, which makes those particular performances even more special for me.  It's just a shame Jang Taek Gi and No Chul Gi don't actually exist... I'd be all over them in a heartbeat. (To my real-life hubby... bian). :P

More faves, in no particular order...

Seo In Guk >> Loved him in 38 Task Force and High School King of Savvy


Ji Sung >> Loved him in Kill Me, Heal Me and Secret


Lee Jun Ki >> Loved him in Scholar Who Walks the Night and Scarlet Heart: Ryeo


Lee Seung Gi >> Loved him in Gu Family Book and You're All Surrounded


Choi Jin Hyuk >> Loved him in Gu Family Book and Emergency Couple


Wisetkaew Sukrit >> Loved him in Teacher's Diary and Dok Ruk Rim Tang



All of my Themes are made for (and look best at) 2560x1440 resolution.

Hopefully MDL will give us a proper way to organize these one day (in the "Lists" tab), rather than having to do it on our Profile...
