They become friends since they share the same views about love and marriage, but what's going to happen when they start to have feelings for each other? - my dramalist

It's officially became my most fave- Thai Drama of the Year. I do love the chemistry between the main leads. And it felt so real, how do they grow relationship from stranger- to lover , there's no such thing as dramatic- cheesy scene where you usually find in any romance drama ! Also, I LOL-ed so much almost in every episode because their fresh jokes
Rating : 5 / 5

That is when Kazama Naoto happens to show up. The owner of a bicycle shop, he is an ordinary man who has nothing. In spite of this, the two of them fall in love. -- TV Japan

If it's Satomi Ishihara dramas , it means i have to watch it ! I've been waiting for her to get into any romance comedy drama since 'from 5 to 9' ! I didn't like the lead actor at first because i find him not suitable enough with Satomi lol but as each episodes, I know why they pick him as lead actor, simply because he can portrayed Pooh-san very well:Naive, Innocent yet very kind. Moral of this drama is simply how to forgive and move on from past heartbreak ,and its showed since first episode.
 Sometimes what a woman need is not prince in a white horse
 but a kindhearted teddybear that turns into prince.

3. Color Me True  / Tonight ,at the Movies
Konya ,Romansu Gekijo De / 今夜、ロマンス劇場で
Main Cast: Kentaro Sakaguchi , Haruka Ayase
Genre: Romance - Fantasy 
Number of Episodes : 1
Kenji (Kentaro Sakaguchi) is a young aspiring movie director. He falls in love with Princess Miyuki (Haruka Ayase) who came from a black‐and‐white movie. - asianwiki
Watched this movie on my flight back to Singapore from Korea last Summer . I got intrigued when i see the thumbnail. The idea about time-travel love never fails me. Plus, it's not usual to see the main lead is actually a fictional character - fell in love together with a real man from 60's era. Kentaro plays so well here and he got the chemistry right with Haruka like a loyal boyfriend <3
Rating : 4 / 5

chinese movie drama recommendation
4. The Ex - Man
Main Cast: Rainie Yang, Blue Lan, Johnny Lu
Genre: Romance
Number of Episodes : 13
Watch Eng-Sub : ViewAsian

Li Qin Ai (Rainie Yang) is a 31-year-old magazine photographer who is happy with her career and her relationship with her boyfriend, Zhou Li Yang (Johnny Lu). She has tried hard to forget her first love, Dai Hai An (Lan Cheng-lung), after they broke up 10 years ago. When Hai An reappears in Qin Ai’s life unexpectedly, some things are just not right with him. First of all, he is still his 18-year-old self from their youth, and he is “half-transparent”. -asianwiki

Chinese / Taiwanese drama is usually not my cup of tea but this one is exceptional. The plot is actually quite simple, how does a woman choose between here highschool lover- whom she still loves and current boyfriend . I love the way Li Qin Ai struggle in being honest to herself first before decides anything . Decision, decision, perhaps its the message from this drama that we can learn on.

Kang Dong-Goo (Kim Jung-Hyun) dreams of becoming a movie director, but he is cynical due to bad luck.

Bong-Doo-Sik (Son Seung-Won) came to Seoul to become a scenario writer, but things have not been easy for him.
These 3 men run the guest house Waikiki in Itaewon, South Korea. Their guest house is facing bankruptcy and then a mysterious baby and single mother appear at Waikiki. - asianwiki
One of the Korean drama that impressed me this year. I got the reply 1994 vibes where a sitcom is a mix of drama !
Salute for 3 main lead actors, they are so comical yet each one of them has to survive career, love life and future and I'm happy too know they have their own way thorough out their friendship journey! If you need a daily dose of humour, I suggest to watch this drama.No need to overthink,just enjoy the plot flows!
