The last day of the 30 day Drama Challenge! Thanks for sticking with me all this time 🙂
Honestly? Any manga based dramas haha – I’ve watched every adaptation that came out, and sometimes even the anime. I’ll be posting detailed highlights/profiles of Manga based dramas in the weeks coming up, but there’s a quick list of my favourites! (also, I love YAB, even though it’s not Manga based I’ve seen all three adaptations :P) Gotta collect ’em all!
-Hana Yori Dango
Like I said, I don’t cry 😛 But here are some dramas and movies that made me Laugh Out Loud. I’ve already featured the dramas on here, so I won’t post any clips from them.
You’re Beautiful (Jang Geun Suk, Park Shin Hye, Jung Yong Hwa, Lee Hong Ki)
Hana Kimi (Wu Chun, Jiro Wang, Ella Chen)
ISWAK (Joe Cheng, Ariel Lin, Jiro Wang)
Kung Fu Hustle
Baby and Me (or Baby and I)
My Girlfriend is an Agent
Gah instrumental? Aren’t all the instrumental OSTs just the regular OSTs without the lyrics??
I looked around but couldn’t find any “instrumental” versions, so I’m just posting songs that I like.
Best Drama Instrumental:
They Kiss Again – Ni by Ariel Lin (note the fan video is sort of spoilery in that it’s ISWAK and TKA, watch at your own risk)
Best Movie Instrumental:
Secret – Dandelion Love by Jay Chou
Secret – Bu Neng Shuo De Mi Mi (A secret I cannot tell) by Jay Chou
Okay okay I know this drama is currently airing and I absolutely abhor it when people rate dramas before they’re finished but…it’s SO GOOD. Currently at 6/16 episodes – it’s the second Japanese version of Itzura na Kiss – or It Started With a Kiss. Meet the love triangle – Ikezawa Kinnosuke is our Sixteen Candle’s Ducky character who has two loves, leopard print and our heroine; Aihara Kotoko is our heroine who has been in love with Japan’s #1 genius for two years straight; and Irie Naoki is our #1 genius who cares nothing for anyone not on his level.
On the left is Naoki in his element – tall, attractive, IQ of 200 | On the right is Kotoko…looking much like me during finals.
The chemistry between these two is absolutely adorable, this Naoki is perfectly ice cold without being too much of a jerk (and you do see his emotions play out, unlike another adaptation I know (I’m looking at you Playful Kiss)) and while Kotoko is a bit slow, she stands up for herself and isn’t outrageously naive/stupid (ISWAK/TKA, I really really love you but come-on, Xiang Qin’s daydreams??).
