Welcome welcome to Day #20! Can’t believe that we’re 2/3s into this challenge already…Today’s question is in fact:

Your favourite drama from a non-romance genre

I used to watch quite a couple of non-romance dramas in the past since so many good ones came out awhile back. Looking at my drama lists for today’s challenge, I kinda realised that I need to go and explore some more recent non-romance dramas since so many good ones have come out in recent years. But anyway, below are just some past personal favourites.

1. White Christmas [K-drama]

This was soooooo good. Despite it being a drama special, it did everything that it set out to do. I just loved the psychology aspect of this drama, and how it portrays how youths react when placed in a scenario that forces those to take initiative and act when others can’t set up to the challenge. It was suspenseful, dark and visually stunning. Acting is on-point, and you get to see tons of very well-known actors now (Baek Sung Hyun, Kim Woo Bin, Hong Jong Hyun, Lee Soo Hyuk) back when they were younger and less experienced. Regardless though, I highly recommend this to anyone who wants mystery, suspense and thriller in their lives, or perhaps wants to watch something that is shorter than the usual K-dramas out there (it’s only 8 episodes)

2. Vampire Prosecutor [K-drama]

The first season of this was just a joy to have watched. Sure, there was a little bit of romantic tensions, but the main focus of this drama was indeed the crime fighting of Prosecutor Min Tae Yeon with his detective sidekick. It’s a really great crime drama with a tad of paranormal for those who wants to play things up a bit. There’s two seasons to it so far, and many fans like myself are still waiting for the day when Season 3 will come out (WE’RE STILL WAITING OCN!)

3. Orthros no Inu [J-drama]

Wow, I had almost forgot about this one until I started scrolling down my list of past watched dramas. This one was a really interesting one, especially when it came to its plot, which plays around the question “What is good and what is bad?”. It deals with morals, and thinking of what is the best approach towards a matter which could mean the life or death of someone. I won’t give away too much (in hopes that you’ll look into it yourselves) but I remember that back then when I watched it, I was really blown away by the story, the acting and how the combination between the supernatural and the psychological just blend together so well. If you want a drama that gets you thinking, definitely check this one out.

Here’s the 30 Day Asian Drama Challenge if you are interested in joining!  I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s answers to these questions.
