My friend has always loved Asian Dramas among others and when I wanted to start watching, she flooded me with so many titles that I didn't know where to begin with! So, if you want to start or maybe just began watching asian dramas, here is a short list that will ease you into liking them. I acknowledge that there are numerous genres and dramas and maybe if you are a "professional drama watcher" you have seen all, if not most of them. This is mainly for newbies like me :p

Synopsis: Li Xing Chen is a rich heiress who thinks she is cursed with a fate that she will not be loved back by the man who she has her eyes on. She decides to win the heart of a rich heir but she also meets a poor but very talented senior on her journey.

My opinion: This is your traditional teen romcom. Again the plot is sweet but not mindblowing. I liked it because the main actress played her part well and I sympathised with her since she hid a vulnerable side of her by showcasing herself as a rich brat. Recommend if you like "hate-love relationships"

My opinion: This drama holds a special place in my heart. They fall for each other subtly and softly. The plot also develops the story line of the other supporting characters which makes the story feel wholesome since it gives them worries of their own. Also: The cat is the best actress ever xP

My opinion: It's a new drama so I have to wait for the episodes but so far, I love the plot. The couple's romantic ways and low key flirting gives me butterflies and warms my heart. I am obsessed with it.
