    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
