  11. You need to add more to the list. I like mainland China dramas, but sometimes the dubbing keeps me away from them. Unfortunately, if one of the lead artists doesnt speak un-accented mandarin, they'll dub the whole thing. Here's my short list in no particular order:
    - The Journey of Flower (crossing fingers for uncut version from Taiwan)
    - Lan Ling Wang
    - Best Time (audio quality was horrible)
    - Love me if you Dare (currently airing and it is so totally awesome)

  26. Anyone knows the title of a romantic TV drama that runs as thus: a poor short haired big-mouth girl working as a waitress. She's always fighting with a rich guy who loves another girl. One day the rich guy brought his fiancee to a restaurant to propose to her and the short haired girl ruined everything by accidentally creating a havoc over there. The rich guy hated her as he thinks she's only after money. There's another guy as well who works as a waiter together with the girl. That's all I remember. Please please help. Thanks

  27. I would add Nirvana in Fire.

    By far the best Chinese drama I've seen in years. Fantastic plot (not the predictable rubbish you get nowadays), really well acted and brilliantly filmed. Also the right length.

    The rest of the ratings powerhouses are really average - they're long and drawn out, by the end you just want it over with.
