    As someone who has been watching on-off a bunch of dramas (korean, japanese, a few from thailand, one or two chinese, etc.) in the past few years, I am quite curious about other people's favorites.

    I think what kind of dramas you watch or love can say quite a bit about you. So let me know!

    In my case, there are a lot BUT some I can mention on the spot are:
    • Beyond Evil
    • Sweet Home (s1)
    • The Boy Next Door
    • Inspector Koo
    • Strangers from Hell
    • Suiyobi 22-ji dake no Kare
    • First love: Hatsukoi
    So. What are yours? As long as they are from Asia, it's fine for them to be mentioned.

    I enjoyed most of the above! Some off the top of my head are "The glory", "D.P." , "Joy of life", "The Story of Ming Lan", "Story of Yanxi Palace", "The girl from nowhere"( although not seen s2), "Taxi Driver", "Juvenile Justice", "All of us are dead".. Plenty more but can't really think at this very moment

    I love watching Asian dramas, especially Korean and Chinese ones. They have such diverse genres, from romance to thriller, from historical to fantasy. Some of my favorites are Crash Landing on You, The Untamed, Kingdom, and Eternal Love of Dream. They all have amazing plots, characters, and cinematography. I enjoy the cultural aspects, the humor, the suspense, and the emotions that these dramas convey. I also like the OSTs and the chemistry between the actors. I think Asian dramas are very addictive and entertaining, and I always look forward to new releases
