I first heard about Korean Dramas (KDramas) in 2013 from my daughter-in-law. On March 15 of that year (the Ides of March) I watched my first Korean Drama—Secret Garden. My wife and I have been watching them quite regularly since then.
I watched my first Shakespeare play many years before that. We try to attend at least one Shakespeare play each year.
Here are links to the Asian Dramas we have watched, are watching, and might watch in the future … also a page on Shakespeare plays:
