My very first (and favorite) Korean drama is Lover's in Paris. I watched it right after I finished watching the Japanese dramas Gokusen and GTO:Great Teacher Onizuka and Taiwanese version of Hana Yori Dango, the Meteor Garden. The plot was much different from the usual heavy drama Telenovelas I'm used to watch, so I started liking the story of their culture. I even enjoy hearing those Korean lines! I have downloaded the OSTs and even tried memorizing the songs' romanized lyrics. I may not understand it but it really sounds good to me. From then on, I borrow or buy korean DVDs just to watch kdramas. My friends told me I'm getting addicted with it and I think I really am...hehe.
Most of them are romantic-comedy and eventhough the drama part was not that heavy, it still is very touchy and captivating, my eyes ends up teary everytime. It really makes me feel good watching those cute, adorable characters.
Can't get enough, I searched for more interesting Korean and Japanese drama/movies to feed my drama addiction (Korean Movies: My Sassy Girl, Windstruck, 10 promises to my dog, 4th Period Mystery, Itaewon Murder Case, Baby and Me, My little Bride, Cyrano Agency, and Romantic Island which features The Philippines' Boracay Island. Korean Drama: A love to kill, Endless love, Coffee Prince, Love Story in Harvard, Fullhouse, Hello Miss!, and just recently Personal Taste. Japanese drama: Hana Kimi, It started with a kiss). The Vineyard Man and Prince Hours are yet to be finished.
My Girl, Boys Over Flowers, Cinderella Sisters and Princess Hours were among my personal favorites and I just added You're Beautiful in my fave list. It will be aired next week in ABS-CBN @ 5:30 PM daily. Unfortunately, can't watch the tagalized version coz my time out at work is 6:30 PM. I'm still hoping that there will be replays on Ch23 during weekends. =)
Update 05/24/12: Adding to my list were City Hunter and Dream High.
