Asian Drama Challenge Day 2

Your all time favorite Asian Drama?

This one is a bit difficult but I'll follow @biancadanica98 's format and choose one from Korean & Taiwanese drama.

Korean: Signal (2016)

Hands down this one is the best Korean drama I've watch. I haven't seen a Korean drama that surpassed Signal's level of story, depth and acting skills. The actors and actress that played the role breathes the roles. The real reason why I was attracted to this fantasy crime genre is the cases that the drama depict are inspired from real cases in Korea. It gave me a new aspect of how corruption does exists even if it's overshadowed with the glamorous events on the surface.

Here is a summary of the movie from Wikipedia:
"A mysterious walkie talkie allows a detective in 1989 to communicate with a cold case profiler from 2015; with the power of fore and hindsight the two not only solve crimes but prevent them from ever taking place. However a long standing murder case is closer to home than either realizes."

Taiwanese: Alice in Wonder City (2012)

I problem I'm not a sad person. I just tend to like very intriguing and mellow storyline because I like unraveling mysterious. Alice in Wonder City has the type suspense I want in a Taiwanese drama (since you don't normally seem them in romance comedy). Since it's a music-themed drama it has a lot of nice OSTs and musical performances.
Synopsis from Drama Wiki:
He Ting Yu is a famous violinist who's just returned from an overseas tour. Chen Hai Jie is a hardworking dreamer who came to the big city to become a world class violin player. Lan Die Fei is a charming girl who has a beautiful voice and an ear for pitch. Alice is a mysterious girl from Japan who wonders the streets searching for the secrets of her past. The seeds of their dreams are planted in the city; they are all waiting to see if one day the seeds will grow to bear fruit.
Again, thanks for following along my Asian Drama Challenge. Feel free to join this challenge anytime and share your story! I would love to hear about it. :)

@P1B2Bear It's sung by Lara Veronin while playing the character Lan Die Fei. She's Russian-Taiwanese singer who used to be the lead vocalist for Taiwanese Group Nan Quan Mama. 😊

@P1B2Bear Alice is played by Tracy Chou. While the title does have her name it's hard to conclude if she's really the lead girl. Alice is more of a mysterious girl searching for her past and encounter the other three leads which has a more interesting story line.
