Favorite Asian Dramas

Miss Dian

posted her favorite dramas so I made my own list too ๐Ÿ˜€

In no particular order.. [Except for #1. :P]

1. Mars – so far, Mars is my favorite drama overall.ย  It is a Taiwanese drama and it stars Vic Zhou and Barbie Xu whom I ADORE and I LOVE.ย  My very first OTP, way back during Meteor Garden days.ย  Anyway, Mars is AWESOME okay? The actors/ actresses did a great job (*stabs Tong Dao*), the OST is really nice (especially Rang Wo Ai Ni by Vic and Barbie! :’)ย  ), the story is amazing– mostly dark and angsty but it still has cute and funny moments.ย  Words alone cannot describe how good it is โ™ฅ

2. Gokusen – is special because it is my very first Jdrama XD Nakama Yukie, who plays Yankumi, is one of the prettiest Japanese actresses I’ve ever seen.ย  I like her a lot, even when I found out that she was the one who plays the role of Sadako in the famous Ring series. LOL.ย  Gokusen is never boring ๐Ÿ™‚ With young, hot boys and a super cool teacher, what could go wrong? ๐Ÿ˜› And who knew that after Gokusen, Oguri Shun and Matsumoto Jun will become one of Japan’s hottest and most talented young actors? ๐Ÿ˜€ Each episode may be predictable, but who cares? It made me laugh and made me cry.ย  A LOT.ย  And Sawada Shin โ™ฅโ™ฅโ™ฅย  Yep, I ship Yankumi and Shin. Haha.ย  SO MUCH CHEMISTRY. โ™ฅ And so far, Sawada Shin is my favorite Matsumoto Jun character ๐Ÿ™‚ Gokusen 2, however, I didn’t like that much =/ Kame and Jin’s there… but.. but.. the Gokusen 1 gang is much better XD

3. Hotaru no Hikari– Ayase Haruka! Fujiki Naohito! Kato Kazuki! A VERY FUNNY and heart-warming dorama.ย  I like Ayase Haruka in TattaKoi but she was cuter in HnH.ย  Comedy is much suitable for her, I think. TOO KAWAII ^____^ I love her himono-onna-ness because somehow, I can relate XD I also love Fujiki Naohito’s role in this.ย  Thank God his character is not like ProDai’s Tada-sensei T_T His role as the manager is very cute tooย  Hihi~ And this drama introduced me to Kato Kazuki, who I think is the HOTTEST Japanese actor / singe/ rockstar ever.ย  His acting is bad actually.ย  HAHA. But Hotaru and Makoto is such a lovely couple sooooo.. hmm. yeah. โ™ฅ *KILIG* I even made a picspam ofย  Hotaru and Makoto here *click “P*.ย  I LOVE LOVE LOVE both of them ๐Ÿ˜€ Teshima Makoto is my dorama boyfriend <333 I cried when he said he loves Hotaru.ย  Eeeeeeeeeeeee! *sniffs*

4. Hana Yori Dango 1 and 2 – I watched MG first so I already know the storyline but I still enjoyed it.ย  I love HanaDan as much as I love MG. I love Hanazawa Rui SO MUCH OKAY? It’s fine with me if he ends up with Makino.. but the proposal in the end made me accept Domyouji and Makino’s fate LOL.ย  Seriously.ย  I cried lots of times, sometimes because it is touching, sometimes just because of too much laughter.ย  No boring moment ๐Ÿ˜›

5. It Started with A Kiss – I don’t know why but I actually find dumb innocent heroines cute. ๐Ÿ˜› Xiang Qin may not be smart (it sounds better than dumb lol), but she’s funny, sweet, and kind-hearted.ย  Zhi Shu, on the other hand, is a genius, doesn’t speak much and arrogant at times.ย  So when these two are together, perfect <3 And forget all those evil dorama parents, parents from ISWAK are the awesome-est parents in the entire universe! ๐Ÿ˜€ Especially Jiang Mama.ย  You will love her for sure โ™ฅ I love ISWAK, it has many laugh-out-loud moments, sweet and dramatic moments too ๐Ÿ˜€

6. Meteor Garden – I’d be surprised if you haven’t watched MG or if you didn’t know who F4 and Shan Cai is.ย  This is my VERY FIRST ASIAN DRAMA that’s why I LOVE IT and I don’t care if people think it’s worthless and boring, etc.ย  It started my love for Asian series and celebrities such as Vic and Barbie.ย  It is quite long and there are some draggy parts in the middle, but I actually enjoyed every single minute of Meteor Garden ๐Ÿ™‚ Until the end, I am rooting for Hua Ze Lei and Shan Cai but oh well.ย  Of course we all know that she’ll end up with Dao Ming Si XD Low budget + so-so acting +ย  coolest boys on the planet + most beautiful actress ever (IMHO :P) + roller-coaster romance + great friendship + hilarious moments + angst + drama = Meteor Garden โ™ฅ

7.ย  Tatta Hitotsu no Koi- it reminds me of a Korean drama.ย  Rich girl, poor boy, girl is sick, family of rich girl hates poor boy.. but we still get a happy ending ๐Ÿ™‚ My favorite Kame drama.ย  I swear Hiroto is โ™ฅ.ย  Kame smokes too much there but wth, it looks good on him. LOL.ย  Kame is a really good actor, and so far this is his best drama.ย  And his chemistry with Ayase Haruka is like, wow. One of my favorite scenes is the boat scene.ย  Nao’s head is pressed against Hiroto’s chest and Hiroto is playing with her ear and askmdkafldeio. โ™ฅโ™ฅ Cliche, yes.ย  But still sweet ๐Ÿ™‚ And funny too! Yuuta is there which is a plus and surprisingly, Erika Toda and Koki looked good together ๐Ÿ˜€

8.ย  Hana Kimi (TW) – Ella and Chun Quan and Rui Xi are probably the silliest couple I’ve seen. Both of them aren’t really good actors, but they look so cute ๐Ÿ˜€ Especially if you watch the behind-the-scenes special after every episode, for sure you will love them both ๐Ÿ˜› But actually, I loved Hana Kimi because of Jiro Wang’s Xiu Yi.ย  FUNNIEST CHARACTER. EVER.ย  I love Xiu Yi and Rui Xi’s friendship.ย  But I wouldn’t mind if Xiu Yi ends up with the pretty-girl-who-bakes-cookies LOL.ย  Very funny series. ๐Ÿ˜› The ending kind of sucks though.ย  And I heard there won’t be a second season T_T

9.ย  Nobuta wo Produce– because it’s about friendship, not just romance.ย  Although Akira and Nobuta were made for each other, LOL.ย  Basta. It was enjoyable.ย  High school life is the best \:D/ Addicting episodes from start to finish but I was kind of disappointed that Akira ended up with Shuji. Haha! Nobuta power enter! ๐Ÿ˜€

10. Proposal Daisakusen – my favorite Yamapi drama.ย  “Hallelujah Chance!” We’ve seen stories like this right?ย  Modern time machine. Hihi. ๐Ÿ˜€ I like Eri and Mikio and Tsuru โ™ฅโ™ฅ Cute group of friends.ย  Tada-san is scary, Rei is just okay. ย  The ending was okay too, I think.ย  I still haven’t watched the SP.

Sadly, no Kdramas.ย  Kdramas aren’t really my thing T_T Kmovies, sure XD But Kdramas tend to be boring and their stories are pretty much the same.ย  T_T

I would like to include Why Why Love too but I don’t like Rainie Yang that much.ย  However, Kingone is still looooove โ™ฅ Silence and One Liter of Tears are equally good but these two are the type of dramas that you would not watch again because it is too depressing.ย  Sapuri is also a favorite because of Ishida Yuya ๐Ÿ™‚ Liar Game is good because it is the only drama my brother agreed to watch and Akiyama-san is the hottest and coolest swindler in the world <3 Coffee Prince is okay but I was bored during the last episodes so I haven’t finished watching.ย  My Boss, My Hero and Great Teacher Onizuka are both school dramas, and both are hilarious and touching ๐Ÿ˜€ A must-watch for drama lovers ๐Ÿ˜›

So um. that’s it ๐Ÿ˜› Hehe.ย  This list may change soon XD By the way, I’m watching Pride at the moment (Episode 3) and I’m loving it! ๐Ÿ™‚
