Pasta 2010

Funny and refreshing. The series did drag a bit but still enjoyable. If you like cooking or good food, this is highly recommended.

Xiao Ao Jiang Hu
Xiao Ao Jiang Hu 2001

Awesome scenery. Best fights without much special effects. First 9 episodes were VERY BORING! Story wasn't interesting in general. Background music was absolutely terrible throughout the entire series except for the final battle. Watch it if you like swords fights with hardly any special effects.

The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince
The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince 2007

No way this drama can possibly get more than 1/5 in my opinion. It might be the dubbing but I didn't find this series to be really funny. There was really nothing in this drama worth watching, nothing stood out. Don't watch it, not even to kill time, find something else.

You're Beautiful
You're Beautiful 2009

This is a fun drama. Comedy wise, it is great to watch.

Full House
Full House 2004

Not sure what all the hype was about. Yes it was funny and great at times but it was just the two of them fighting the whole time. I don't understand why people think it's THAT great. Definitely watch it though, it's still a fun drama to watch just don't expect too much, maybe that's what happened to me. So watch it with less expectation.

Best wuxia series I've ever seen! Felix did an extraordinary job. If there was more fighting this movie would have been the closest thing to perfection. It doesn't matter if you've never watched old dramas, I'm telling you, watch this one. THIS IS A MUST SEE FOR ALL WUXIA FANS!!!!!!!!!!

Trees in Heaven
Trees in Heaven 2006

Great drama with only 10 episodes. This is a great short drama that has a little action in it too. Great for teenagers.

Stairway to Heaven
Stairway to Heaven 2003

The only thing keeping me from giving this 5/5 is that the drama drag too much in the ending but other than that it was awesome. The movie got your attention right from the start. Brilliant movie. Very sad. Watch it!

Twin of Brothers
Twin of Brothers 2004

Aside from a couple terrible scenes, the special effects were enjoyable but like most series that uses special effects they used too much and hand-to-hand combat was almost non existent. Why can't they find the right amount of both? It's still a good series.

Face to Fate
Face to Fate 2006

This series is a lot less serious than Lethal Weapons of Love and Passion. Fights were good. Fun to watch.

Lethal Weapons of Love and Passion
Lethal Weapons of Love and Passion 2006

The series should have focused on fighting more. The fights were good but it could have been better if the weapons were given more time and hype. The series is still excellent but it is not for everyone because it's pretty serious the whole time.

Devil's Disciples
Devil's Disciples 2007

Special effects looked great but WAY TOO MUCH. The movie was watchable but I regret watching it because the ending was the dumbest I have ever seen in my life.

The Legend of the Condor Heroes
The Legend of the Condor Heroes 2008

The movie drags on too much. Fighting was good but not enough battles. Would have been better if it was narrowed down to 40 episodes. 50 episodes made it boring.

Against The Blade of Honour
Against The Blade of Honour 1996

Great movie, great acting by Louis. Watched it a couple of years ago and still found it to be better than some of the newer modern wuxia series.

Crimson Sabre
Crimson Sabre 2000

Excellent in the beginning with Ha Shuet Yee but after Gordan Lam became the lead it wasn't nearly as good. This is not a blame on Gordan Lam but Kong Wah portrayed his character so well that I didn't want his story to end.

Temptation of an Angel
Temptation of an Angel 2009

BEST KOREAN DRAMA I've ever watched! Everyone in my family were hooked, my parents and my 7 year old brother. This is an intense drama that also has moments that will lighten the mood. Full of twists and turns. I'm Vietnamese and got mine from Vina Entertainment, you might have to get it there in order to get the good translations I'm not sure. It is so addictive, MUST SEE!!!
