I'm not quite sure why I'm making this list. I guess so that I don't forget that I've already watched something and start watching it again? (which I have already done several times now)

Have you watched one called Coffee Shop Prince?

Indeed I have! I think I shortened it to Coffee Prince. While it's not exactly one of my very favorites (most of my faves are guilty pleasures), I consider it one of the very best k-dramas that I have ever watched.

I was interested because of the plot that he doesn't know the gender of the person he's falling for (like Mulan! lol), but I was afraid it would be homo/transphobic considering Asian culture is as bad as any other when it comes to sensitivity.

It's surprisingly non-offensive, actually! I mean, it still has gay jokes, but not like the typical k-drama where it's over the top. I found the story of the heterosexual man falling for what he thinks to be another man to be fascinating and very well-done, and it actually takes a LONG time for everyone to find out that she's a girl, so the romance is treated entirely as a male/male one from the guy's standpoint (it's after she reveals herself to be a girl that I kind of lost a little love for the drama. Just a little bit, though).

But anyway, I was surprised at how well this drama handled the subject of homosexuality, but Asian culture has this way of saying it's okay if one of them turns out to be a girl in the end, which is why I think this drama gets away with a lot of what it did. There's this other drama called Personal Taste where one dude pretends to be gay so that he can be roommates with a girl because he was after the design of her house, and his boss (who is a man) is totally in love with him, and while the boss character was handled pretty magnificently, I HATED that he was the only one who didn't get to have a happy ending. So, when there are ACTUAL homosexual characters on a Korean show and they are treated seriously, their story is usually tragic. Pfft.

Oh, oh, one you might like is Painter of the Wind, which has a legit female/female romance, but again, it's one of those where the girl dresses and acts like a boy, but she has gender identity issues and really does fall in love with the other girl (but the main romance is between her and her much older male teacher, which is why I adored it, but the female/female romance was handled very beautifully).

I don't know if you will see this but I am watching Six Flying Dragons and seeing Kim Myung Min makes me think of you every episode (I am on 9). While I respected him greatly as an actor I never felt attracted to Kim Myung Min..but damn...he is quite attractive in this drama! I do have a thing for facial hair and I love his smile that was never really present in the other 2 dramas I saw him in. Anyways! Hope all is well with you! :D

Hey, so glad to hear from you! I've been pretty absent from LJ, didn't think anyone was still here. Haha, I love that seeing Kim Myung Min made you think of me! I am adoring Six Flying Dragons so much. Didn't think I would since I'm not big on sageuks, but OMG it is so freaking good. KMM has such a large presence in the drama despite not actually being there much (although the last two eps featured him quite a bit more). I love that goofy smile of his, so adorable!

Sorry it took me almost 2 months to respond after you were so awesome as to respond so quickly! I am not on LJ much either. I cam back solely to message you about KMM last time! :D I have been busy and not had much time for dramas lately! I think I am on episode 13 or 14 of Six Flying Dragons. I think he is becoming more main. :D Need to catch up! I hope you had a great Christmas, Birthday, and New Year!
