@try10: For Korean Dramas, besides the ones mentioned above (My GF is a Gumiho, Full House I [I'm sorry that have to disagree with you here ><], Fantasy Couple, A Love to Kill) I would reccomend Bad Love (one of the few more thaan 16 episodes K Doramas taht I didn't drop... First because of Kim SUng Soo then because the story was so intense), Miss Ripley (thought this is more about intrigues than love, still I found it to be very interesting, especially the main character, Miri, who has a difficult family background does many things just to become someone more accepted in society), Sang Doo, Let's Go To School (it has Bi Rain. Oh, and the story is quite nice, thought there sometimes is more chemistry between Bi Rain and his rival than between Bi Rain and the girl, but whatever...)
Do you, by chance, have an account at mydramalist.com?

Ah, and to Duskylli:
If you don't mind girls beating up each other, watch Majisuka Gakuen! It has all the AKB members in it *-* Oh, but for me there was too much beating up, so I can't really say that I reccomend it, just that I know some people who have enjoyed it~

Nope, I don't have an account there. Some of the dramas you mentioned seem interesting. I'll try watching them after I finish Level 7 Civil Servant and another one that I've just finished downloading called That Winter the Wind Blows ( I loved the korean movie with Moon Geun Young), so I 100% sure that I'm going to enjoy this drama.

@dramspringfeald-that is interesting how the story doesn't vary much between tribes it makes it believable like it really could've happened a long time ago. Did also they mention why the fox god wants to be human? Did you find the book? I only have the internet which isn't really reliable. Would be nice to travel and hear the myths from locals....

@try10- Sorry I think you've seen all of the K drama that I would recommend xD Good luck with your future studies.

@enta- I'm curious about Goong after reading what you wrote on DA xD Iljimae sounds interesting too but I don't have time to watch them :(

@Hae Young- Welcome to LSF! Thanks for the diverse list of J dramas. I think I'll take a break from people beating each other up though.

@CainVoorhees-hahaha thats a lot of justice! I guess I overlooked Kamen Rider coz it reminded me of Power Rangers the american version which was on tv when I was a kid. I just remember thinking it was wierd with annoying acting and terrible fight scenes.

Most of us native English speakers can't tell the difference between good acting and bad acting in Japanese shows. >_>

Kamen Rider is more focused towards an older demographic of young males. The older series of the Heisei era tended to be a lot darker, but they lightened up in tone as the years progressed. They usually have good looking actors and have really cool music as to try to include a wider audience. The actor for Kamen Rider Den-O was most recently seen as Kenshin in the live action Rurouni Kenshin movie (but won't do anything in association w/ Kamen Rider for some reason nowadays). Gackt was featured in one of Kamen Rider Decade's movies and even does the opening theme to that series (though Decade isn't really up to par, especially for an anniversary series).

The coolest part is that if you're into Kamen Rider enough (like dropping serious dollars serious), you might even be convinced to buy some of the toys they make that they use in the show. I am a proud owner of two Kamen Rider belts and will be getting a third one this year. When I bring them to cons, most people don't recognize them but the people who do make it seem like we're part of this secret club or something. :)

A little bit off-topic: When it comes to Power Rangers, you can pretty much say that with most of the franchise. The only arguable exception is Power Rangers RPM, which is in my opinion, the best Power Rangers series. The acting is actually decent for the most part and when you consider what the source material was, the American adaptation blew the source material out of the water. It's basically Terminator Salvation but with Power Rangers - eradicated humanity from a virus, last city standing. The source material was actually much more comedic and lighthearted, but they managed to successfully make the adaptation darker and more badass (unlike Turbo...). Since it was supposed to be the last Power Rangers series, they really went out on it.

A second best would arguably be Power Rangers Time Force, acting is not as good but the writing is pretty good. It's the first time we see a female leader on a Power Ranger team (pink, but most awesome pink) plus it features Dan Southworth, one of my favorite stuntmen/actors, as the Quantum Ranger. Dan is best known for this role and the voicing+motion capture for Vergil in Devil May Cry 3 + U.Marvel vs. Capcom 3, making him one of the most badass guys I ever saw in the industry.

Do you still need suggestions? If so, I can suggest a short J-drama that I...*cough* ahem LOVE LOVE LOVE so far even if it's weird as heck and has a lot of anime editing techniques and stuff that doesn't look right in real life, etc.

It's called Princess Princess D, and no it's not about princesses...sort of... it's about an all-guys high school and their weird school tradition.
There's apparently a manga and an anime of it as well. Haven't seen it yet though.

Did I write something about goong in DA? O.O *searches* Ooh well, it's really a recommended drama. I love it's manhwa too but I recommend the drama's ending better.

I love Iljimae(or rather the main actor, Lee Jun Ki). After he came back from his military duties, he doesn't look like the cute Jun Ki anymore but I still love him. You should also try to check out his new drama(which is a historical drama again).

I'm not a huge fan of KDrama, but with all my friends watching them, I guess I know a few!
The Invisible Man, a drama from 2006. My mind is foggy with the details, but it made me cry so much.
If you don't mind sitcoms (...ultra-long sitcoms), I really enjoyed Unstoppable High Kick. Which made me cry. Too much.
I second 49 Days, although I found the acting underwhelming, to be honest. The plot is honest, although the twists are kinda predictable.
(And a rather straight version of a romcom is The Greatest Love! Just having a shoutout because it's pretty solid and heartwarming and my uncle acted in it.)

@CainVoorhees- Hey I've seen live action Rurouni Kenshin movie. The main was really cool, such a huge contrast the his character in Beck. I didn't realise it was the same person. I don't want to overdose on justice but I might try a few eps of Den-O. I really want to watch the break dancing episode xD. Thanks for all of the info!

@Cinto- Hey it has the same actor that CainVoorhees was talking about. He's also in two dramas mentioned by enta and try10. Whelp if he's cross dressing in Princess Princess-D I guess he play anything. Is he really popular?

@enta- *searches Lee Jun Ki* soooo pretty xD

@Laniessa- is it weird seeing your uncle act? Thanks for the recommendations!

I finished watching That Winter the Wind Blows and I have to say that it was EPIC! Korean drama lovers should watch it! Now, I've seen a few episodes of Hwang Jin Yi and I'm in love. From what I've seen this historical drama is based on real facts. http://www.dramacrazy.net/korean-drama/hwang-jin-yi/ After I finish this, I plan to watch Protect the Boss and Personal Taste. If there are and korean drama addicts here, like me :oops: please, recommend me some good ones that I haven't seen yet. I want to watch as many as I can until I go to college. :D

If I'm honest with you, I am a huge fan of K dramas.
Also, I haven't watched anymore drama since ages because I just cry too much when it comes to things like that (which is veryyyy unhealthy) XD
But yeah, some are very emotional (or maybe I'm just a cry baby)
