Genres that I like: wacky comedy
slice of life
I prefer films to dramas.
I'm an easy rater; it doesn't take much for me to rate something with 10.
Even then, my standards for dramas are pretty low compared to films.
Although I watched anime as a child (Dragon Ball ruled my life) I never made the transition to dramas through it.
Dramas: Kdramas were first.
After watching I'm a Cyborg but that's Ok in 2011, I wanted to see a bit more of Rain so I watched
Fugitive Plan B and that's how it started. I quickly got sucked it, but it didn't last long. I noticed I
had the tendency to lose interest and drop many dramas around ep 10-11.
In the meantime, I watched Taiwanese dramas if they had Rainie Yang in them.
I jumped ship to Jdramas after watching Buzzer Beat (and becoming a Keiko Kitagawa fangirl).
I found they had more variety in the genres that I liked and that they were around 10ep 45min.
I also liked that many protagonists were rather ordinary working class people instead of being on
the two extremes ends of the spectrum = dirt poor and dirty rich.
Films: I much more prefer Kmovies over Kdramas.
The first time I watched one was when Kim Ki-duk's The Bow was airing on a local channel and it
left me deeply disturbed. I was probably too young to watch it.
While studying abroad in Canada, I became close friends with a film production major who was
inspired by East Asian cinema, specialy from Korea and Japan. He introduced me to more
I was more familiar with Japanese and PRC/HK cinema as those films were more common on
domestic TV, especially if they were directed by Kurosawa Akira, Ozu Yasujiro, Zhang Yimou
and Wong Kar-wai.
Some other directors that I like: Koreeda Hirokazu, Park Chan-wook, John Woo, Miike Takashi,
Sono Sion, Bong Joon-ho, Nakashima Tetsuya.
