I do. I've already watched:

My Lovely Kim Sam-soon
Goong
Personal Preference/Taste
Full House
You're Beautiful
The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince

Those are romantic-comedy dramas. I don't watch the heavy drama ones. :D

I'm watching two right now. Secret Garden and Athena: Goddess of War. Secret Garden is more the romantic/comedy type that can be a little sappy. Athena is actually pretty good, IMO. It's a spinoff of IRIS but I actually like it better. It's got action and espionage stuff. A little more aimed towards guys.

Yeah, that's the one. It's pretty heartfelt, but it's not a total downer.

I saw parts of it and it was okay to me.

I saw those two I highlighted and I like them. :D

The ones that aren't romantic comedies usually are much longer and the quality decreases after many episodes, so I don't tend to watch them much.

So I guess now that there are many more K-Drama watchers, we should make this a K-Drama Watch List and Discussion thread. :D Could a Moderator or an Admin please and kindly change the title to reflect that? Thank you.

So I'll name a few that I remember off the top of my head:

Personal Preference/Personal Taste (It has good humor and it is a good K-Drama overall.)
1st Shop of the Coffee Prince/Coffee Prince (Second K-Drama and it is one of my favorites)
Cinderella Man (My first K-Drama and it is one of my favorites)
Queen Seondeok/The Great Queen Seondeok (It had a terrible last quarter of episodes, but the first quarter was good.)
Smile, You/Smile/Smile Honey (It was the funniest series I had ever seen for the first few episodes and the tone changes as it progresses, but it's good.)
Pasta (It's my personal favorite.)

There are others, but I can't remember them all now. :sweat: Feel free to post your own watch list here.

You're awesome.

Coffee Prince was one of my first K-Dramas and it's still one of my favorites. Have you heard of Pasta? That one is amazing. It did everything well. The interactions are natural and there's chemistry between the characters.

I'm so glad Cinderella Man came back on TV. I missed it.

So recently I've been watching Mary Stayed Out All Night and I have no idea why it's getting so much hate from people all over the net. It's not too deep, but it's rather fun to watch and the main actress does a good job getting the cute naive girl type across.

To be honest, I have seen some and all of them are dubs. With the Korean fever in the Philippines, Kdramas are everywhere.

Here are some of the shows that I have seen:
The Third Book of Han (Jumong)
My Name is Kim Sam Soon
Full House
All About Eve
Shining Inheritance
Endless Love series (Autumn in My Heart, Winter Sonata, Summer Scent)
The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince

I can't really remember the others...

Cinderella Man is good for its length. Pasta is also an MBC Mini Series, but there is so much in it and the pacing is nice.

Which ones are airing there now?

I saw parts of Jumong and that includes the final episode. It was OK, but I thought it was stretched too much.

I saw Shining Inheritence, but I didn't like it much.

I think most of us have seen Coffee Prince. :laugh:

Coffee Prince strikes again. :laugh:

Thanks for the information. I've been wanting to watch Baker King. Shining Inheritance is also called Brilliant Legacy here.

^ Really? The network that airs Baker King said that Baker King became the "National Drama of Korea" or something last year. Haha! I don't know if that is true. xD

I wouldn't know about the "National Drama of Korea" because I only watch the MBC channel and the "news" we get from Korea basically is actual news regarding the virus in Korea, tensions with North Korea, or people who basically say the same thing about everything and they only focus on the "popular" stuff. To be honest, there really is almost nothing about Baker King on TV here. It's all focused on the people with no talent who become famous for imitating the worst aspects of pop culture of the first half of 2010.

It basically has to do with the fact that it had uber awesome ratings. Its last episode scored a 50% viewership rating and aside from the first four or so episodes, was the number one viewed show week after week. Not too bad for a show filled with mostly newbies and not the most famous cast.

could we talk about variety show or reality show (like running man or we got married) here in this thread?
i really like "we got married show" (WGM) airing every saturday evening on MBC.

have you ever watched this show?

Sure, feel free to discuss anything Korean in here. We just won't have this thread stuck because it isn't for anything Japanese and we won't have the title changed because it isn't Japanese. :disappoin

We Got Married seems somewhat interesting, but I haven't really seen any variety shows/reality shows since Oppa Band ended. :(
