My Girl was the koreanovella that got me hooked - so that one is always my favorite!

But there are some other good ones that are right up there with it!

From GMA I really liked Love Story In Harvard - it was just so good, so many emotions. It made you laugh, fall in love with the story and cry! Another GMA favorite was sweet 18. It was just so funny!

From ABS CBN, obviously My Girl! Other favorites that I enjoyed were Wonderful Life, Princess Hours, Lovers In Paris and Princess Lulu! All were enjoyable, and they were all different!!

Hi, everyone, I am just curious whether you watch Korean dramas with subtitle or dubbing in Philippine.

My Peruvian friend told me that she watched Korean drama "Stairway to heaven" on Peruvian TV but all the Korean actors and actress spoke in Spanish. Lol. I did not know Kwon Sangwoo spoke fluent Spanish. Lol. Obviously, they dubbed it in Spanish. By the way, my friend told me that the Spanish title for Stairway to heaven is Escalera al cielo.

They are dubbed. I prefer subtitled to be honest, after i saw Full House on GMA i got it on DVD with subtitles lol. I like Full House the most, Stairway to heaven is also OK if a bit corny.

Yes, I agree with you. the subtitles are perfect for me to watch any dramas /movies.
Americans are too lazy to read subtitle but with the excellent level of performances, I don't need to.

I believe strongly that hearing the dramas/movies with the actors own voices and language is integral to the shows beauty and impact. Without this, it would take away from real emotion we get from the actors ton of voice.

I am not a big drama fan but I kind of liked "My name is Kim Samsoon". so, that's my favorite.
I am a guy and I don't want sad drama that needs three boxes of Kreenex.

Thank you for answring my question.

wow!.. thanks for the list!, anyway here goes my picks:
FULL HOUSE- i love song hye kyo and rain here!.. the scenes are very very funny!.. and the "bear song"..it got me laughing so hard!.. and the view were also great! a very light-hearted romantic comedy!
FOXY LADY- chun jung myung a.k.a. AJ is just so KAWAII!!.. he got those looks from a child who couldn't get what he wanted whenever he do this sad face!.. waa!!
MY NAME IS KIM SAM SOON- this kdrama is missing from the list!.. but nonetheless,, i love this one. great acting from the casts too!.. really made me laugh!

PRINCESS HOURS- the only kdrama in abs that i actually watched every single episode though i already finished watching it from the dvd!.. lol.. prince gian and princess janelle are just the best!!! gladly, they're having the replay of this every weekends..;p

that's it, i guess.. well..these are just kdramas, the tdramas and jdoramas are not yet included.. lol, got a long list from there although some shows i loved were not yet shown in any of the 3 networks.. YOSH!.. gotta go now!XD

8. i forget the title of the series but it was shown every sat & sun am. The name of the lead girl is eula. the one with teaser that the girl is waiting at the train station.

i think you are referring to LOVE IN THE CITY but i dont think that is a koreanovela the female lead is a taiwanese actress & the male lead is a chinese actor.

i think my all time fave is It Started with A kiss
but b4 that i watched MG and i think its really good

ISWAK & Meteor Garden are not koreanovela series they are taiwanese series.

yay!!! my mistake :tricky: that's the one i'm referring to.. :whistle

its ok....i also like that series even if its not a korean series. Love in the City was also replayed before in Studio23.

if i remember it right the name of the cute guy is EUGENE & the girl is like what you said is EULA i think they are cute together.

for me My Girl is the best Kdrama that was aired in the Philippines.,then Goong.,though the middle part is really draggy (sorry Goong fans).,Save the Last Dance for Me is I think one of the few Korean romantic-drama series that I loved watching.,all of my list are from ABS-CBN.,it's too obvious that I'm a Kapamilya lol

I bet Princess Hours 100% the best korean drama. Actually because of this drama, I searched all the leading actors and actresses. I became a fan of Yoon Eun Hye, Joo Ji Hoon and Kim Jeong Hoon.

My first Favorate korean drama "Autumn Story" Endless Love 1 with Song Hye Kyo and Song Seung Hun

I recommend you guys to watch 1st shop of coffee prince and vineyard man starring Yoon Eun Hye...You will definitely love her..she's the best.

in fairness, GMA does have a better judgement in terms of choosing what drama series to be shown not only they pickING tearjerky kind of dramas but also with sense like JUMONG,WANGJINI and JEWEL in the Palace. They also aired funny dramas like FOXY LADY,MNIKSS,COFEE PRINCE,FANTASY COUPLE,FULL HOUSE...
i gess,the only kdramas i lyk in abscbn are MY GIRL and PRINCESS HOURS.

haha same here id rather watch & listen to their original voices even if i have to read to subs its rather ok than watching it in gma instead of you focusing on the show you cant help but be irritated on their dubbed voices & end up not watching it like coffee prince id rather watch it in dvd than watching it on gma.

So, what do you think of the ending of Coffee Prince?

i also prefer watching it with subs.i sometimes got dissapointed with the namee and voices they choose.

anyways,i got hooked with Dae Jang Geum,Full House(can't wait to see the 2nd one),Love Story with Harvard and The 1st Cup of the Coffee Prince.

also abs Green Rose and My girl.But sad to say that Marrying a Millionaire sucks!

COFFEE PRINCE IS THE BEST KOREANDRAMA EVER MADE IMO. it got me hooked for more than a year (as in everyday in my life i was thinking about it). i was addicted to it even before GY was cast :P well thanks to yeh! hehehe!

FULL HOUSE is the REASON OF ALL REASONS! hehehe! if it wasn't for it i wouldn't be this crazy with kdramas! well thanks to SHK! saw her on AIMH (got hooked to but not my fave because of the ending) and i fell in love with her ever since!

ALL ABOUT EVE has my dream man! i would forever dream of kenneth (jdg's character).

MY NAME IS KIM SAM SOON is my uppers. i watch it when i'm down. when i need to get my sanity back. it made me fell in love with KOREA as well.

PRINCESS HOURS made me wait for almost a year! thanks to divi i was able to see it before it was shown on tv. but that was 9 gruelling months of wait!

DATING NOW has 3 of my fave korean celebrities! i had all the reasons in the world to watch it!

My favorites are:


i sooo love this...I think this was the only koreanovela that the whole school (my old school) kept talking about.....from the time we arrive to school until dismissal we talk about princess hours....even when cleaning the classroom, we still talk about it.....and when we are I'm in my carpol everyone still talks about it...It was just really wonderful coz you get to feel all sorts of emotions...you laugh from the beginning. You fall in love in the middle eisodes. Cry towards the end but still your sad face turns into a happy face when you finish it...


This is just one sad story....Definitely the saddest drama I've ever seen....Luckily I was watching this on GMA coz if I watched it on a dvd or on the internet my eyes will surely be swollen....I also like Wonbin so much <33....He's really sweet on this drama....I fell in love with him because of this...


I don't like any koreanovela on QTV but I liked one chinovela


I love this show. Luckily, I didn't go to school anymore at the time this came on in QTV (coz it will be a waste of time to go to school when i won't even finish a quarter/term of school) It was so funny and I love the story....I think it was quite unusual?? It was different from other dramas

my choices are:

Lovers in Paris - this is the first one i've watched and my personal favorite so far. watching this series gave me the idea that Koreans make great series..

Full House- i love Rain and SHK's chemistry. i heard that producers in Korea are planning to make a sequel of this show. i hope these two will still be on it.

All About Eve- i didn't like this show at first but among all the Koreanovelas aired here in the Phil., this the only one (that i've watched) which didn't focus on the whole romantic theme which made it unique and interesting for me.

Princess Hours and Coffee Prince
- i only watched this shows because of Yoon Eun Hye. she's my favorite actress (next to Jeon Ji Hyun, that is).
