    TVB -- "Golden Faith"...I remember the first two TVB series I watched both had Jessica Hsuan. My second was "Life Made Simple."

    Wait scratch that - my first TVB was actually their version of "Duke of Mount Deer."

    Taiwan -- "Huan Zhu Ge Ge," of course

    Mainland -- can't recall...seen too many. I think it was most likely one of those ancient series that my parents used to watch though. I do remember my first Mainland wuxia adaptation was "Tian Long Ba Bu."

    Korean -- "Endless Love"...I think I've only seen two Kdramas total -- Endless Love and Da Chang Jin.

    Japanese -- Hana Yori Dango...my one and only.

    Think I got all of them. Never seen any Singaporean or ATV.

    Okay, I'm gonna try to dig out my memory.

    My first TVB serie was The Legend of Wonder Lady (Yeung Pan Pan) followed by LOCH '83.

    From ATV --> has got to be Reincarnated.

    Taiwanese --> don't laugh...but it was Meteor Garden, was curious what the hype was all about regarding that serie. Later on followed by Legendary Siblings and the list goes on.

    Korean --> Glass Shoes.

    American serie --> Who's the Boss, definitely.

    Japanese --> GTO, I had a good laugh with this.

    Japanese - Probably Oshin, though I had a very good impression of Volleyball Girls (排球女将) - not sure which was shown earlier; hiatus for about 10 years then 101 Proposals.

    ATV - 胜者为王 is the earliest I can remember. Jackie Lui from this was my first celebrity crush.

    TVB - Too many to remember - probably HSDS with Tony Leung.

    China - Either Journey to the West or Dream of Red Mansion.

    Korean - Hotelier.

    Taiwan - Six Dreams - Wanjun. This has fuelled my distaste for Taiwanese series ever since; the only one I could stand was Mute Wife (哑妻)

    Singapore - can't remember - could've been 雾锁南洋 or whichever series I could understand in the early 80s.

    Wow, I like this thread a lot. Nice to go back into my memory bank and answer it.

    tvb series ~ New Adventures of Chor Lau Heung 84. My mom told me I have been watching with her since I was 3 years old or so. But my memory only recalls 1984 and after. So this is my first series that my mind remembers of me watching.

    China series ~ Journey to the West 1986

    Korean series ~ Winter Sonata. Did not watch the whole thing. Have never start to watch a Korean drama. I only watch with my mom during times she watches while I do my computer stuff in the background.

    Taiwan series ~ Probably a Liu Xue Hua series. Romance in the Rain. If not, Empress Wu starring Vivian Fan.

    ATV Series ~ On the Waterfront starring Kenneth Tsang and some girl. Also has Michelle Mai Suet in it.

    Japanese series ~ Not yet.

    Singapore series ~ Viet title was "Anh Hung Le Buoc". A bunch of soldiers going into the chinese army (time period was after the Qing dynasty was overthrown).

    Mine was THE FATAL IRONY, a TVB series that dates to *1974*. I think I saw it in 1977 or 1978.

    There was an earlier (non-TVB) production of JUSTICE PAO (maybe made in Taiwan) that was shown on Chinese television (such as it was) in Southern California around 1976 or 1977 as well. Chinese-language television programming was limited to an hour per week on public TV in those days.

    Actually, my first series was Jin Fen Shi Jia.
    So:
    China-Jin Fen Shi Jia
    Korea-Dae Jang Geum
    Taiwan-HZGG
    TVB-LOCH 83
    Haven't watched series from Japan, ATV, or Singapore yet.

    TVB - ROCH 95
    Korean - Winter Sonata
    Japan - should be one of the Takuya Kimura old dramas, dun remember which
    Taiwan - Meteor Garden
    Singapore - can't remember coz i've been watchin since a baby, compare to
    dramas from other countries which i watch after i grew older
