I'm so excited to see this forum topic. Thank you!

Because I'm running out of good Kdramas to watch. I've given up on a lot of kdramas after watching the first few episodes, so was excited to see recommendations from other drama aficionados.. And then I'm exposed to exotic dramas from other parts of the world. 

 

From those recommended, I'm especially keen on the Turkish drama. Could someone PM me for the website to watch them with English subs. I have Netflix, Prime and VIU (Asian version of Viki?). SO if I cant find them in any of these, where do I go?

 

Thank you

thats great @WoozyPrincess :) I only watched my first turkish dizi recently and my understanding is that it is like thai lakorns where they are all fan subbed. if you are not familiar with fan subs, basically it is a group or individual fans who take their personal time to sub the drama out of their love for the drama. this is how kdramas also used to be in the early days. so subbing quality may not be great and you have to google search for it by the name of the drama and it will be uploaded somewhere. there may not be a common library where you can find all of them. most of the names, am seeing it for the first time. maybe others can help. if you are looking for siyah beyaz ask, PM me and I will send you the link where I caught it. am also tagging @Sarang21 who may be more familiar with this and can give some input.

Name: Bad couple

Summary: she doesn't want a relationship or marriage but wants to have children. so what to do? she decides to pick the perfect man to have a one night stand with so that she can have the best DNA for a child.... except the guy is not interested in her... kekeke.. he is a botany professor while she is a magazine editor with nothing in common.

Watch when you are in the mood for: when you are bored of the usual meet cutes in romantic dramas and are looking for a romance that feels a bit different. comedy where all sorts of wacky things happen. it is hilarious to see her chase him while he is perplexed on what she wants.

Visual factor: so this is old drama, ignore the fashion if it hurts your eyes

Emotional moments that you liked: one of the funniest scenes was when she is sort of competing with his fiance... over cushions! LOL. so his fiance makes a cushion and puts it in his office and not to be outdone, she replaces that cushion with her own cushion.. and the best part is that the guy is oblivious and has not even noticed there are cushions. LOL.

Annoying bits you might need to ignore: since this is old drama, it dips into melo. hang in there. it is a happy ending.

Overall grade: B

Name: Summer Scent

Summary: girl is drawn to this fella and doesn't understand why. later she finds out that she received the heart of his girlfriend during the transplant

Watch when you are in the mood for: a moody old school romance

Visual factor: this was part of the early wave of hallyu dramas and is known as one of the season dramas. since the theme is summer, it was really shot beautifully and the cinematography was done well. it was so compelling that people wanted to visit as tourists to the places where it was filmed.

Emotional moments that you liked: when they dance in the field

Annoying bits you might need to ignore: just ignore them! hahahahha...

Overall grade: B for the cinematography and music

Name: Winter Sonata

Summary: she meets this guy who looks like her first love who died in an accident

Watch when you are in the mood for: there is a reason this is one of the dramas that is mentioned during the hallyu wave. if you want to know what made old kdramas so popular and start to trend in other nations, then you should check it out. at times you feel like pulling your hair out but you still want to keep watching to find out what will happen

Visual factor: the cinematography! this is another of the season dramas and so there are beautiful shots of winter and snow.

Emotional moments that you liked: when he discusses the red thread

Annoying bits you might need to ignore: there are lots of plotholes, just shut down your brain and don't ask. hahahah

Overall grade: B, for the cinematography and music

Hi since you are interested in türkisch dizi...this is my recommendation on how to find sub:

If you find a show that you like, go to facebook and look if there is an englisch discussion group. In those groups someone usually share the episodes with subtitles. There is this facebook group that I would recommend you to join as they got subtitles for various shows. I will PM you the link.

@angelangie hahahaha I understand. I love LOTR too, I mean who doesn't?? Lol. And I'm just busy these days preparing for my exams, hence you couldn't find me more in soompi. 

 

@Lmangla Wait wait wait. You know that I'm a slow writer and a slow thinker, it took me half an hour to write that above post. I was going to post about pineapple head and his drama in my next post when I get time. You will not close this thread down, right?? Ashes of love was my first choice because you tagged me in that thread, so I assumed you wanted me to write about that show. Hahaha. I have a big heart too. So big that its housing dozens of oppas at the same time. :heart:

kekeke.. @kokodus ~ the thread remains open, so you can post whenever. the idea is that people can keep contributing whenever they want so folks can skim through and get some ideas whenever they are in a drama slump.
