Both are martial arts movies based on historic figures in the past.

Both are set during a historic time period in China's history and both feature martial arts masters being forced to step up to make a stand for those who have been bullied/ oppressed.

Both showcase great kung fu - different styles though since they are from different schools. But both have great martial arts sequences and action.

Like Ip Man, the 'Once Upon A Time In China' has sequels due to its popularity.

They are both classic Jet Li films.

Both showcase Jet Li's immense martial arts prowess.

Both are set during a historical time in China with conflicts and underground resistance movements creating tension and issues.

'Fong Sai Yuk' has a more comedic vibe though, and so is less serious in tone from 'Once Upon A Time In China'.
Both have sequels made due to their popularity too.

'Fated to Love You' is almost Sam Soon-esque in its premise of over-looked girl in society meets rich chaebol guy and through a series of coincidences both fall in love, but not without a lot of hilarious hijinks, misunderstandings and separations.

Both are oldies but goodies so be prepared for dated production values (camera-work and film quality aren't as good as your dramas these days), but both are great heart-warming romantic comedies which balance relationship progression and laughs well.

Padiwaradda's english translation is 'Beloved Loyal Wife'.

So, as you can guess, both series are more female-centric focused, and also challenges us by making a case on what makes a woman a good wife - all done within the context of the culture and of societal expectations and norms. A compelling and mature watch for those who are interested in this sort of setting.

Both shows' main feature depict the ups-and-downs of newly weds, which is rather rare and hard-to-find in dramaworld in general.
So if you like to see how 2 disparate people who have just recently been married learn to adapt to one another and grow to love each other and support one another throughout the drama, then these are the shows for you.

Both shows also have your conflict of ex-childhood loves/ people who are interested in one half of the main couple which then require the main couple to work through the third party interferences.

But both shows also spend a good amount of time on the main couple to show the developing relationship dynamic and the couple maturing through their time together.

Itazura na Kiss - Love in Tokyo 2 has a more light-hearted feel, while Padiwaradda is a Thai lakorn which has a more mature feel. But both have a sweet and warm vibe which tells a tale that a happy ever after doesn't just end at a wedding ceremony, but that it actually starts when the couple makes things work between them - through thick and thin.

Both are pre-modern era romance dramas. 'Too Late To Say I Love You' is set in 1930s China while the 'Suparburoot Chuthatep' series is set in 1950s Thailand. So both feature period costumes, sets & culture, especially of the upper-class, which is just really gorgeous.

Both feature main female leads who come from a different background/ class from the male lead, which forms part of the conflict in the shows.

Both male leads are from old, established, wealthy and powerful families and have high standing in society. Both male leads fall in love very early in the show and are rather single-minded in pursuing their ladies.

Both shows have crazy, obsessive second female leads who have known the male lead for years and consider him their property. There are also the childhood engagement trope, fake relationship/ marriage trope too.

Note: "Khun Chai Puttipat" is Part 3 on a series of 5 brothers (it focuses on the 3rd brother's romance). It can be watched as a stand-alone, but it would help immensely if you read the synopsis of the first 2 brothers ("Khun Chai Taratorn" and "Khun Chai Pawonruj"), to provide some background and context.
Alternatively, you could also watch the other brothers' shows because they all have different conflicts, settings and personalities which makes each show unique and compelling.

Both are pre-modern era romance dramas. Lady & Liar is set in 1930s China while the Suparburoot Chuthatep series is set in 1950s Thailand. So both feature period costumes, sets & culture, especially of the upper-class, which is just really gorgeous.

Both feature main female leads who come from a poor background and having to scrape a living with a single parent i.e. father, who is ill and needs help. Therefore both female leads, as filial and loving daughters, take on work which causes them to cross-paths with the male lead.

Both male leads are from old, established, wealthy and powerful families and have high standing in society. Both male leads fall in love almost at first sight when they met the female lead and are rather single-minded in pursuing their ladies.

Both shows have crazy, obsessive second female leads, and sleazy antagonists which provide conflict to the shows.

It can be watched as a stand-alone, but it would help immensely if you read the synopsis of the first 2 brothers ("Khun Chai Taratorn" and "Khun Chai Pawonruj"), to provide some background and context.

Both feature male leads who fall in love with a female lead who is blind/ visually impaired.

Both have the female leads initially blind/ visually impaired due to an accident in the past, but eventually manage to undergo an operation to regain their sight.

As a result, both shows have moments where the male lead undergoes a dilemma of whether to reveal who he is after the girl has regained her sight.

However, 'Angel Eyes' is a more melo drama with more twists and turns to the story, while 'Ruk Jub Jai' is actually a short 2-hour movie of a live stage performance of a musical and so has a very lively, upbeat and fun vibe.

Both are movies, though Ruk Jub Jai is a film of a live stage-performance of a musical.

Both feature male leads who fall in love with girls who are blind/ visually impaired.

However, one is more melo in tone (Always), and the other is more upbeat (Ruk Jab Jai).

Both feature Boy's Love as a central theme, with a senior-junior relationship in high school (for the Seven Days series), or university (for 2 Moons series).

PS: "Seven Days: Friday - Sunday", is the second of a 2-part series.
The first part is "Seven Days: Monday - Thursday" - watch this part first. Please do watch both parts as they are both halves of a whole. With each part lasting approx. under 1 hour 30 minutes, it will only take approx. 3 hours to finish.
