Asian Drama Remakes Part 1

Hello Dramatics! It’s your favorite Drama Queen with some Asian dramas that have gotten a remake over the years. Some of these dramas are very unique as they have been remade more than one time. We know that remakes can be hit or miss at times right? Have you ever thought about why that is so? The usual reason is we tend to set our expectations too high because the original drama is too precious, too good, and too original. But is this always true? Sometimes the remake can surprise us in a positive way and we might even enjoy the same drama, but from another prospective. Without further adieu, here is some Asian Drama Remakes that might really excite you and are worth watching!
