ASIAN DRAMA CHALLENGE: DAY 8

DAY 8 - Your favorite actor?

Again, like I did before I will be choosing my favorite Korean, Taiwanese and Japanese actor. I will be doing the same for actresses tomorrow too. Because I don't want to choose just one...

FAVORITE KOREAN ACTOR?

Lee Min-ho!
Birthdate: June 22, 1987 (Age: 29)
Height: 6'2"

DRAMAS I'VE SEEN HIM IN:

Boys Over Flowers (2009)
Personal Taste (2010)
City Hunter (2011)
The Heirs (2013)
I've seen almost all of his well-known dramas except for Faith. Still need to watch it and I plan to watch his upcoming drama Legend of the Blue Sea! My 1st Min-ho drama was of course Boys Over Flowers and I loved it!!!
My favorite role he's ever played was in City Hunter, he was so cool and super hot! >.<
I love him with long hair and dimples. I'm a sucker for dimples. I like tall guys and he's really handsome. Not only is Min-ho really attractive but he is also an amazing actor, his emotions just flow within him. He is probably my all time favorite actor. Plus, he can sing but it's nothing special in my opinion. He has an okay voice which is very deep.
Another thing is he can pull off any hairstyle whether it be fringes up, long or short. Doesn't matter and i'm probably the only one who liked his permed hair in Boys Over Flowers...

Honorable Mentions:

Lee Jong-suk (Pinocchio)
Ji Chang-wook (Healer)
No Min-woo (Unfortunate Boyfriend)
Choi Jin-hyuk (Emergency Couple)
Jang Guen-suk (Love Rain)
Choi Siwon (Oh! My Lady)

FAVORITE TAIWANESE ACTOR?

Aaron Yan!
Birthdate: November 20, 1985 (age 30)
Height: 5'10"

DRAMAS I'VE SEEN HIM IN:

It Started With A Kiss and They Kiss Again (2005 and 2007)
Just You (2013)
Fall In Love With Me (2014)
Refresh Man (2016)
Aaron is so cute, that's what made me fall for him in the first place. The thing is that the first drama I saw him in was ISWAK and I didn't even know it. I had no idea he played in it until I looked it up. But, I fell for him in Just You. He was so adorable and funny in that drama, who wouldn't fall for him? His smile is everything and his voice is like heaven!
I love his voice so much, some of my favorite Taiwanese OST songs are sung by him like That's Not Me. He is a great kisser. His acting skills are up to par. When he cries, it makes me sad. But, overall he is definitely my favorite Taiwanese actor. Just so perfect! He looks so much younger than his actual age because of his baby face and has one killer stare that will draw you in. He also shows his great acting skills in Fall In Love With Me because he has to act as two different characters but the same person. It's like a personality disorder but not. He nailed it.
He can speak multiple languages including English, so I won't have trouble talking to him. YAY!

Honorable Mentions:

Jasper Lui (When I See You Again)
Mike He (Devil Beside You)
George Hu (Love Around)

FAVORITE JAPANESE ACTOR?

Tomohisa Yamashita A.K.A. Yamapi!
Birthdate: April 9, 1985 (age 31)
Height: 5'9"

DRAMAS I'VE SEEN HIM IN:

Buzzer Beat (2009)
MOVIE: Close Range Love (2014)
From Five To Nine (2015)
The first thing I saw Yamapi in was Close Range Love which is actually a movie instead of a drama. But, I fell in love with his cool aura in this movie. I recommend the movie BTW.
Then, I watched From Five To Nine which is the most recent drama he was in and I recognized his face but knew something was off and literally something was off. His hair, he got it cut shorter and I think his hair is what he is known for. I think he got it cut for the role that he was playing which is a monk and it makes sense to have shorter hair. His hair is still kind of long though and that's good. My favorite drama he played in was Buzzer Beat, I just finished it and I loved his character so much.
His character's personality is what I imagine Yamapi to be like in real life. Sweet, funny and kind-hearted. In From Five To Nine his character was serious and clueless, he always had a straight face on him. He got to show off his English speaking skills which tbh aren't that bad at all. I'm including a clip from this drama that shows how well he speaks. This is the funniest scene.
Yamapi is short, cute and hot at the same time. He is my ideal type. SO CUTE!!!

Honorable Mention:

Yuki Furukawa (Mischievious Kiss: Love In Tokyo)
Haruma Miura (Last Cinderella)

@biancadanica98 The problem is I don't really know what to watch. I don't understand Japanese so it's difficult to find new releases. I'm curious how do you find new drama airing? Most sites I go to only have news for k-drama and still very few T-dramas.

@cindystran honestly I don't use any sites, I watch all my dramas on KissAsian and go from there. Depending on your favorite genre. Look for dramas with that genre. I like the romance genre which is what I mostly watch.
