Asian drama rankings

This is just a placeholder for now, I’ll elaborate further on each drama when I get a chance as well as spice up the design of this page. For the dramas I’ve blogged about in some detail, links are provided. I consciously try to keep my reviews spoiler-free so read without fear!

The dramas are arranged in order of personal entertainment and rewatchability. I’ve broken down the shows into a few categories to give greater separation in quality between the shows.

If you’re wondering why I have so many shows in the amazing category, well, I watch shows that other people have recommended, and so far I haven’t been let down too much =P

    Great taste you have here. My top 3: H2, Dragon Zakura, Nodame Cantabile. My other favorite: Pride, Hana Yori Dango, Proposal Daisakusen. Recent favorite: Papa to Musume no Nanokakan. Tsubasa no Oreta Tenshi Tachi series are great too.

    One of my favourite drama series and I still think it as #1 japanese drama is the one called “Shotgun Marriage” or in japanese “Dekichatta Kekkon”. Please watch and review that one, just curious how you would review that one.
    Btw the stars including Abe Hiroshi and Ryoko Hirosue.

      Thanks for the recommendation! I will watch anything with Abe Hiroshi so I'll keep an eye out for it.
