Both are serious, thoughtful dramas that cannot be forgotten. Kamisama is one of those dark romances that you hesitate to watch, but are glad you did. Both have subject matters that affect others in a tragic way. Kamisama is more heartwarming, both are memorable.
Both are stories about high school students falling in love with their teacher. Both are touching romances. The J drama is more serious and intense than the K drama.

Both are Godfather-like gangster dramas. Both have hot, talented stars: All In- Lee Byung Hun, Ji Sung, Song Hye Kyo; Friend - Hung Bin, Kim Min Joon. In both they vie for the same woman. All In has an unexpected, great ending: Friend is not so unexpected after the first episode.

Both are melodramas about people finding love while dealing with a devastating illness. Precious Time (1998) is a classic and is one of the best romance dramas produced. It features international superstar, Kaneshiro Takeshi. Don't avoid it due to subject matter. It has an uplifting ending. Boku no ita Jikan is more difficult to watch.

Both are written by the same author. They remind me of the excellent American Godfather movies, minus the violence. Both are about control and power and family structures.
