Awhile ago I kinda promised/hinted at my top drama lists. I have a top ten for jdramas, a top 5 for twdramas, and a top 3 for kdramas. I kinda wanted to make it fancy, and I might still one day, but as for now, I'm content with just posting it.

I'm doing 10 jdramas, 5 twdramas, and 3 kdramas because of my viewing habits. I've watched way more jdramas than anything else. Or at least, I've finished more jdramas than anything else (I start twdramas a lot, but don't finish them a lot), and I haven't watched many kdramas at all. So yeah. I also want to do a top asian movie list sometime too, but I'll stick with this for now.

So here is my top 10 jdramas. The other lists will come shortly (I have them written already, so there shouldn't be that much delay).

I know something is amazing if I keep thinking about it for days after I watched it.

Dramas that captured me )

The reason I mention this is that Eternal Summer is holding me tight. I'm slightly obsessing over it, going over scenes in my head, wondering at the beauty of the filming. I think I'm going to buy the movie (I NEVER buy movies anymore), I love it desperately, and want to own it. There's something about it.

I want to finish Goong, but I've been thinking of rewatching Meteor Garden and Mars. It's been a long time since I'm watched either.

I'm STILL at work. Because apparently my computer doesn't want to play Bull Fighting, I decided to rewatch some of Love Contract. Rewatching it makes me realise just how goddamn much I love it

Love Contract: Ending anaylsis! Also, comparisons to Summer Snow and Honey and Clover, and the differences between different asian countries dramas )

Now that I'm done analysing dramas (I can't help it, I analyse everything. Incidentally, why I'm so damn good at sorting out meaning from poetry, and film... and stuff. That, and I think in metaphors)...

By the time I get out of here, I'll have spent nearly 11 hours at this place. Gah! And dear God is it cold here....

OMG do I love Chinese rap and metal! I especially like when they combine.

And geez, can the S.H.E. girls sing! Hebe and Selina have really nice voices, but Ella's voice is the best. It's really lovely! I wish I could sing (well). BTW, Ella is the Mizuki character in the taiwanese Hana Kimi.

Lisa-> I totally wrote a response to your email yesterday, but lucky me, accidentally deleted it. And now I like, don't have the energy to rewrite it! I'll respond... eventually!

Meh! I finished "Devil Beside You" and now I'm sad, because I REALLLLLY loved that drama, and I kinda don't want to watch anything else for awhile. Even though I will. Because I have to. I'm currently downloading two series anyway (Love Contract (which stars two of my favorite Taiwanese actors Ariel Lin and Mike He!!), and Meteor Garden (I couldn't resist the temptation)....)

I also brought home a shitload of work I need to get done sometime this weekend.

Mostly for my reference;
Stuff to watch, part 2

Smiling Pasta (Taiwanese)
Goong (still Korean)
Full House (Korean)
My girl (Korean?)
Prince Turns to Frog (Taiwanese)
Loving You (Korean)
Mars (Taiwanese)
My Lovely Sam Soon (Korean)
Why Why Love (Taiwanese)
Marry Me (Taiwanese)
My Secret Garden (Taiwanese)
Aishiteiru to Ittekure (Japanese)
Honey and Clover (Japanese)
Binbo Danshi (Japanese)
Zettai Kareshi (Japanese... totally squealed when I found out that Nanba-senpai (Mizushima Hiro) was in it!)
First Kiss (Japanese)
The Rose (Taiwanese)
Tokyo Juliet (Taiwanese)
A Love to Kill (Korean)
Silence (Taiwanese)
Summer x Summer (Taiwanese Squeeee! Joe Cheng!)

Yeah, most of them are Taiwanese... but since I started watching ISWAK, I've realized that I really love the Taiwanese dramas... they're the perfect mixture of drama, comedy, and overall romance. Like, Devil Beside You was totally utterly perfect. ISWAK was a little drawn out (which is good, but not exactly my taste). I probably need to branch out into things that don't involve romance... but not now.

It kinda sucks that I like the Taiwanese dramas so much, but I'm learning japanese. Mandarin doesn't exactly help me while I'm trying to learn Japanese, which by the way, is going pretty good. I can't write much yet, but damn it if I can say a few sentences already! Yay! I only know two verbs, but a fair amount of nouns!

I think I'm going to watch Summer Snow next. It's been sitting on my computer for ages (ISWAK2 and Devil Beside You got in the way). Kay! I'm going to go get me some sherbert!

BTW, icon = Sano x Nakatsu love! Squee!
