    Hello,
    Does anyone of you know any good good Drama? Be it chinese, korean, japanese or any other except Deutsch.

    I'm looking for a good good movie, not series.

    Where the ml and fl are not idiots and the plot line it's not stupid. A movie with a happy end. With good acting and amazing plot.

    Well, but, if you really don't know any movie like that but know a series with max 16 episodes, please do tell me

    Genres: action, drama, romance(those being the principal tags)

    If anyone knows any dramas of this type, please do tell me!

    Sorry for being so demanding!! ¬.¬ >_<

    I suggest watching It’s Okay To Not Be Okay. It’s a Korean drama and I assure you that you will love it. It has romance, mystery and a comedic undertone. Main actors are Kim Soohyun and Seo Yeji.

    Extreme Job Korean movie- 5 cops, undercover as a fired chicken delivery shop to have a chance at catching some criminals.It does have plenty of action and the end features some romance.

    Haunting in Japan Thai movie - drama, horror, romance, action ( action is least, really) about a dumbass gathering band making a music video in a rented japanese house in winter. There's comedy with the randomly called exorcists, even the last one who does have a way to deal with the ghosts, a musician falls in love with a girl there who is in a complicated situation and the landlord who keeps renting the damned place is a surprise and a half.

    Now, for series I only ever watched a few dramas. The Asian drama episode times are exhausting( I thought 1 hour was like pilot episode stuff. Turned out those are the shortest episodes).

    Melo is my Nature - generally good stuff, character relationships have much more thought put into them than expected from a drama in general, much less a comedy tagged one.

    The second is the first season of Welcome to Waikiki. Every single one of them is bonkers and they deserve each other, both the friends and the romantic couples. Of course, it's a great and somewhat gross journey before the latter crystalizes.

    Sure, but I haven't watched just a few this months, more like watched their mv's, hehe. Actually I am asking all this for my sister, hehe, she is trying to find a good movie.

    So, I mostly watched mv's these months but I'll tell some dramas that I remember

    It's okay not to be okay(I watched obly mv's but it's really good)
    The romance between tiger and rose(watched almost full series, this is also good for me, the side characters are really funny, but I got bored after some episodes, but it really is good even though I got bored)
    Peach blossom.. (idk the full title) (cdrama)
    Eternal love(Really really loved this series, i do think I got the title wrong that's why I'll tell the name of the main leads, dijun and nine tailed fox, atleast I tried to say the name but I forgot her name, hehe)
    Secretary Kim(good one)
    Doctors(I looove, love this)
    There was another one with some rich dude who opened a cleaning company because he didn't want to join his grandfather's construction company.

    Now I feel that I recommended you dramas... Was this a scheme? You wanted to get gooody goody dramas too, didn't you?

    There the untamed it's the live action version of founder of diabolism and is highly praised. The heirs and she was pretty are popular too. School 2015 is cool even if you risk to be salty about the ml. I liked W two world apart. Cheese in the trap and extraordinary you are both adoptation of a webtoon and these webtoon are cool (my id is gangnam beauty too)

    It's kinda hard when you want a drama genre movie, with "romance" AND "a happy ending" tags.
    A happy ending is almost the antithesis to drama.
    The last ones I remember are "A Star is Born" .... and further back is "Titanic". You know how those turned out.

    If you're looking for Asian films, you can try "Exit" (2019, KR). Not quite drama, more action/romance/comedy though. And guaranteed happy ending.
    Or "The Beauty Inside" (2015, KR). More drama, ambiguous happy ending?
