hkoreandramaisland was created by Jacqueline, an asian drama fan. I’ve been watching Hongkong TVB Series since I was a child and my most memorable tvb series was The Demi God Semi Devil 1996 starring Felix Wong, Benny Chan, and Carmen Lee. I’ve been a Korean Drama fan for a little less than a year, it was the drama My Girl and Full House that hooked me up. I created this blog to share my love for Korean and HK drama.

I watch a lot of tvb series, just recently watched korean dramas,I watch some taiwanese and mainland ancient dramas. I watch hk dramas because I like the stars and the ancient dramas in the 90s. I get easily addicted to Korean Dramas because it makes me have unrealistic dreams. I like watching only some mainland ancient dramas since most of them doesn’t look appealing.

There are a lot of series that I like but are not my favorite.

All time favorite HK dramas: Heroic Legend of the Yang I 1994, Food Glorious Food 1999, Demi God and Semi Devil 96, State of Divinity 96, Journey to the West 96, Romance Beyond 1993, Legend of Condor Heroes 94, Justice Sung I 96, War and Remembrance 97, Eternal Happiness, and Perish in the Name of Love.

Most Favorite Korean Dramas: Full House and My Lovely Sam Soon.

Favorite HK actors and actress: Moses Chan, Steven Ma, Chilam Cheung, Louis Koo, Kwong Wah, Sammul Chan, Kenneth Ma, Bosco Wong, Gigi Lai, Esther Kwan, Maggie Cheung, Noel Leung, Michelle Yip, Jessica Hsuan, Linda Chung, and Kate Tsui.

Favorite Korean actors and actress: Won Bin, Lee Minho, Lee Dong Wook, Park Shi Hoo, Sung Yuri, Song Hye Kyo, and Kim Tae Hee

I barely go to asianfanatic, or other forums. Some of you may used to know me through myspace before I delete it, or on my previous tvb fanatics club fb fanpage. I used to go to TVB Musings blog and TVB Square to read reviews but never actually commented on there. Back then I just read TVB blogs but never actually commented on there. UMM. I used to be called by some tvb fans a true TVB Fanatics haha!

Favorite TVB Couple: Chilam Cheung and Gigi Lai in Shades of Truth; Raymond Lam and Linda Chung in Heart of Greed, Cheung Tat Ming and Amy Kwok in Justice Sung 1997

Favorite Korean Drama Couple: Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young in City Hunter; Ran Bi and Song Hye Kyo in Full House; Lee Dong Wook and Lee Dae Hae in My Girl; Lee Dong Wook and Kim Suna in Scent of a Woman

  1. Yay I love HK drama blogs! They are very rare so keep it up! :3

    Also I was wondering, how did you get the drop-down menu’s? I have been trying to figure that out for a while O_O (For example, under “TVB 2011 best series” you can see a few links)

    1. Nice to hear from you, your blog about Japanese and taiwanese drama is awesome too. The drop down menu depends on the theme that you use, you have to find a theme that has a drop down menu. Perhaps try to switch different themes. I had a hard time finding theme because many themes have different functions.

      1. Thanks, the only HK drama I posted about was Tiger Cubs. T_T I am planning to post about some Singaporean dramas soon though!

        Ok I will probably have to take a look at my theme options then. >.<

  2. Hey, I was wondering if you are gonna watch Kevin Cheng’s new TVB drama, “IP Man”. I just heard about it now but I don’t know if it’s good or not!

    1. Wow. Just found out IP Man 2 is a mainland drama. Thought it was a movie. haha. The only mainland drama i’ve watched with Kevin was Bu Bu Jing Xin.

      1. Oh I thought it was a HK drama O_O But I’m not sure.

        Some of the comments said that it wasn’t a very good drama so I haven’t tried it out yet. >_<

      2. I finished TVB Reality Check and Seasons of Love during my vacation. Wonder how much I will remember if I blog about that after I come back. Haven’t started A Great Way to Care 2.

  3. I just found this trailer for an upcoming HKTV series “Police Boundaries”. It looks like it’ll be good! I’ve heard that some people like HKTV better than TVB lately?

    1. HKTV still haven’t got a licence. Their trailers doesn’t look appealing to me since it looks similar to HK movies. TVB has degraded a lot and this year has really low ratings. Sigh. At least A Change of Heart has all of my favorite tvb actors. 🙂

      1. I’m so not interested in HKTV because the trailers look similar to HK Movies which I’m not a fan of. Plus TVB has been around for a long time.

  4. I feel like we have similar backgrounds. I grew up on tvb and I loved ancient dramas with super powers.Full House started my Korean craze and I have been watching it ever since. Raymond Fung and Charmaine Sheh are my fav. Couple. I love Song Hye Kyo and we are born on the same exact day!

      1. Your hobby makes us as (Dramaholic) happy.. Have you watched when the winter comes, the wind blows? it’s Korean Drama.. I absolutely LOVE it…

    1. Happy New Year to you too! Haha funny how Drunkensword told me I can ask you to make me a new banner of Legend of Love if I want to or he could do it.

      1. Yeah as a Christmas/holidays present I offered to make people a header. If you want one let me know! Although drunkensword is much more talented than me hehe!

      2. I’m having some technical difficulties right now so it will be a while before I can make it. >__< I'll let you know when it's finished!

      3. Are you still making me that kdrama banner? Not sure if you are busy. My cousin requested to do the blog banner for me but I rejected. Drunken Sword is working on another fan art for me.

      4. Hi I will make your header once I get my computer problems fixed. Currently I do not have the program that I usually use to make the headers. >__< Sorry for the long wait!

      5. I change my mind. I want a banner of the casts in My Bratty Princess and lljimae combined. It’s going to be a surprised banner but have those leads in those two dramas. 🙂

      6. Um My cousin is making me the illjimae banner of Park Shi Hoo and Lee Jun Ki. I would like a My Bratty Princess banner from you. Sorry for keeping on changing the topic. But I can help you find the photos of My Bratty Princess if you want me to.

      7. Heisui, I might even change ideas again but not sure when you will have time to make me a banner. That can be a good thing since I might have other ideas for the banner.

      8. You and Drunken Sword are so kind for making me a blog header. Will wait patiently for a pleasant surprise. Is your computer working now?

      9. Do you still have the software? I changed my mind and would like you to do me a banner of tvb actress: Gigi Lai, Sonija Kwok, Joey Meng, Alice Chan, Noel Leung, Charmaine Sheh, Maggie Cheung Ho Yee, and Esther Kwan in one banner.

      10. Since your software isn’t there, I still have time to wait until a good new tvb series appear and I’ll make my final decision which banner I want.

  5. Hi! I’m Zhuoren Tang, editor at ELLE MEN China magazine. We’re doing a story about people outside China who love to watch Chinese fantasy dramas. And I saw you quite active blogging on such Chinese dramas, so I wonder whether you are interested in accepting an email interview with us and share your view on Chinese fantasy dramas? Thank you very much!

      1. it’s fine. You don’t have to be a super fan. It would help a lot to hear from you about your view on Chinese fantasy and how you compare fantasy and Wuxia. Could you give me an email address? I’ll send you the questions soon. Thank you so much for helping!

Blogging takes a lot of time! The only rule is to Be Nice!
