Asian Dramas/Movies

I've been a follower of Asian Dramas/Movies, particularly Korean. On the list below are those I've already seen. I rated them base on how much I want to watch it over and over again. 1 being the lowest, 5 being the highest.

49 Days/Pure Love (2011) - Korean
     Genre: Romance; Episodes: 20; Cast:  Lee Yo-Won / Jo Hyeon-Jae

A Love to Kill (2005) - Korean
     Genre: Heavy Drama; Episodes: 16; Cast: Shin Min Ah / Bi
     My Rate: 2. I think the story is too long and I hate the ending.
Angel Eyes (2014) - Korean
     Genre: Drama; Episodes: 16; Cast: Gu Hye Sun / Lee Sang-Yoon

Big (2011) - Korean
     Genre: Fantasy/Romance; Episodes: 16; Cast:  Lee Min Jung / Gong Yoo    
     My Rate: 4. I like Gong Yoo's character here. It made me think how will it really end.
Boys Over Flowers (2009) - Korean
     Genre: Comedy/Romance; Episodes: 25; Cast:  Koo Hye Sun / Lee Min Ho
     My Rate: 5. Compared to its Taiwanese counterpart Meteor Garden, BOF's cast and scenes are better.
Cinderella's Sister (2010) - Korean
     Genre: Comedy/Romance; Episodes: 20; Cast:  Moon Geun Young / Seo Woo    
     My Rate: 5. I'm always intrigued with Moon's acting but when I saw this drama, I easily become a fan.

     Genre: Action/Romance; Episodes: 20; Cast:  Park Min Young / Lee Min Ho

Coffee Prince (2007) - Korean
     Genre: Comedy/Romance; Episodes: 17; Cast: Yoon Eun Hye / Choi Han Kyul
     My Rate: 4. Not a fan of this couple, Gong Yoo is a bit tall for Eun Chan. But Eun Hye is handsome!
Dream High (2011) - Korean
     Genre: School/Romance; Episodes: 16; Cast:  Bae Suzy / Kim Soo-hyun    
     My Rate: 5. A story about finding your true identity, following your dreams and friendship. Genius!

     My Rate: 3. Just too sad and tragic.
     Genre: Comedy/Romance; Episodes: 16; Cast: Park Shin Hye / Yoon Si-Yoon
      My Rate: 3. Yoon's acting is a little exaggerated I think and only my curiousity to Go Dok-Mi's      dark past made me finish the series but I still love Shin-Hye :)
Full House (2004) - Korean

Gokusen (2002) - Japanese
     Genre: School/Comedy; Episodes: 12; Cast: Yamaguchi Kumiko
     My Rate: 4.  The female counterpart of Onizuka. I think they could make a cool butt-kicking couple.
