Hana Yori Dango is an awesome japanese drama. Cool kids with money having fun, with a good old romantic flavour, what more could you ask for heh

Densha Otoko the tv drama series is definatley worth a watch if you haven't see it already too.

3 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-07-25 07:20 ID:NBkM91eF

the japanese drama "Beautiful Life". about the hair dresser and the librarian in the wheelchair

4 Name: Haruhi : 2006-07-26 05:43 ID:RjYvQBTL


Hana Yori Dango brings back memories...<3 I've been working on Meteor Garden, actually. This is the first live action of Hana Yori Dango; it's the Korean version. It's very good, especially if you liked the Japanese live action.^_^

Taiwanese Drama, Prince Who Turns To Frog, really good for me.

6 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-07-27 15:43 ID:4LtK5dpg

I posted this on 4chan, which of course was totally useless. Maybe 4ch, which is infinitely more wise will have something to better to say, or even recommend me a drama that I would like.

I've tried to like J-drama, I have, but I can't. Every time I want to get into a J-drama I get barraged with bad acting, asinine story lines (Hey look, Character X fell in love, but guess what he has a terminal disease!, etc.), and over the top nonsense. Oh, and please don't say GTO, I saw the first ep, and I never want to see another one.

I heard GTO was an awesome live drama, i've seen a few clips of it and the crazy teacher seems hilarious, but i guess its different when you watch it

8 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-07-28 00:59 ID:lrdlL5vf

I've seen NANA and i must say its a gr8 movie <3! a good combination of drama and jpop music ^_^ (one of the main characters is Mika Nakashima, a japanese singer.)
Its about 2 girls of the same age with the same name who meet eachother. There has been a manga version and an anime version of it too, but i havent seen them.

9 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-07-28 01:55 ID:4LtK5dpg

NANA stars Aoi Miyazaki, who is an angel.

10 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-07-30 05:29 ID:QScBRagm

Meteor Garden is in Mandarin, from Taiwan.
I reccomend Densha Otoko of course (TV version was pretty good, actually. I haven't seen the movie yet, though)
What's that Korean Drama about the Imperial Kitchens? Dae Jeum Guam? That one's pretty good (and it has the same actress as Guem Ja-shi!! 可愛い!)

Nobuta wo produce, also a great series to watch

14 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-08-07 12:06 ID:G1ADoRFH

yeah nobuta was great!! i seen this taiwanese version of GTO and is so hiliarouse!!

15 Name: Ducky : 2006-08-07 13:50 ID:kxS57ipt

This is the Japanese drama list i've watched
and i can say's all worth to watch
as every title have their own unique way to
tell the story and have it's own touching

omg you watched all those?!

17 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-08-08 04:04 ID:r/e1p2cC


A lot of them are just like soapies but Japanese. I would rather watch a Japanese soapy than one here in Australia, but the bad acting and plots are something that is universal over this genre. I don't mind it too much, but each to his own...

18 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-08-21 05:08 ID:lrdlL5vf

Oh, and please don't say GTO, I saw the first ep, and I never want to see another one.

only seeing 1 ep and then already have the neccesary info to say its a worse serie, amazing

Byakuyakou is another favorite, its so fucked up. child porn, male prostitution, murder, suicide, school bullying, kidnapping, rape, framing people, yakuza, molesting by priests, destroying churches and necrophilia. wtf

26 Name: uilo : 2007-02-02 05:10 ID:aXw8t9GJ


hana yori dango is my favorite, HYD2 is running now and it's driving me nuts waiting for the next episode! also good are love contract, the devil beside you, full house, densha otoko, kimmi wa petto, gokusen. uhm, i think most of these have already been listed, but there all worth watching.

27 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-02-06 04:10 ID:0cbneOpU

HANA YORI DANGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It almsot made me cry....(T_T)

I'm watching Lunch Queen, and I have a question about episode 3. When Natsumi is eating the curry, she puts her spoon in the glass of water. Later on, one of the brothers says something like "that stinks of poverty." Can someone explain why he said that? Maybe a cultural thing?

29 Name: kilcher : 2007-02-06 08:18 ID:xYE9T2Xy

my boss my hero is pretty awesome.

30 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-02-09 17:09 ID:7N4uL1wu

Satorare and Brother Beat are really good dramas that I highly recommend

32 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-02-21 11:37 ID:01XbS2Og

The Korean drama Resurrection is fucking amazing! I bought the dvd box while visiting Korea :). Korea Secret Agency is fun and I'm watching it now... Recently I also watched Maid in Akihabara. Stupid plot, but moetastic :3

33 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-02-24 03:53 ID:TDk/YPB7

Kurosagi is pretty cool.

I think it's cool when you recognize actors in different dramas. Like the main actor in Kurosagi, I thought he looked familiar. then I thought of lunch queen, and it turned out he played the youngest brother. Also the main actress in Kurosagi and nobuta was the lil sister in densha otoko, right?

35 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-03-02 19:16 ID:ZpVBfWAL

Rating is horrible, and the formula is very old school. Go with dramas that have a rating higher than 20..

I like stand up because it's about sex.

I also like Shimokita glory days, cuz it has AV girls.

43 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-04-14 09:26 ID:p4q2elA7

I don't think anyone mentioned Gokusen yet.

First season's story is better than the second, but the second season got much, much higher ratings. Probably because of Jin and Kazuya.

Currently watching Liar Game. Very, very good so far.

Also watching Bambino! with Matsumoto Jun. Probably more appealing to girls.

Alright because of this thread and the amount of attention it got I decided to give this genre a try and found myself really in love with it after seeing only two shows.

If you like melancholy... watch Proposal Daisakusen! XD

Only one more episode left... I wonder if it will be a happy ending.

Holy crap, I can't believe you're the only one who's mentioned Ikebukuro West Gate Park so far in this thread. It's so good, both technically and story-wise. When I watched it last year, I was shocked to learn it was a 2000 production, because most other dramas from that time can't compare to what IWGP did.

IWGP is the best jap drama period. especially to those who see jdrama as either cheesy anime live action or sappy romance shit. brilliant cast of characters, writing and soundtrack. classic moment

Nobuta wo produce is great! any teenager could relate to it because somehow i think they've given a clear view on a complicated friendship like those three have. i sure can relate to it!

84 Name: blah : 2007-10-25 15:16 ID:EqMT4L3T

dragon zakura@ it's really interesting and i gives a glimpse of the culture of japan regarding education and where Japanese students stand in the society. i think it was pretty realistic and inspiring. haha. and the studying methods they used there were interesting. i tried some and it does work. haha

Thank you thank you thank you. I've been after more East Asian cinema for a long time. I adore films but never really touched Asian films. I'll have to check out a lot of these recommendations here. I'll see what I have to suggest...

"Salinui chueok" - 2003 South Korea
A second young and beautiful woman is found dead, raped and tied and gagged with her underwear. Detective Park Doo-Man and Detective Cho Yong-koo, two brutal and stupid local detectives without any technique, investigate the murder using brutality and torturing the suspects, without any practical result. The Detective Seo Tae-Yoon from Seul comes to the country to help the investigations and is convinced that a serial-killer is killing the women. When a third woman is found dead in the same "modus-operandi", the detectives find leads of the assassin.

Gokusen 2, Densha Otoko, Hanayome to Papa, Stand Up!!, Yukan Club

Theres probably some others I forgot... but I think these are the best I've seen recently.

I just watched Proposal Daisakusen because of Yamashita Tomohisa, who I really liked in Nobuta wo Produce.
He's a really uniqe guy in my opinion.
However, It was very amusing and I can recommend it to everyone who liked the character of Yamashita in Nobuta.
