What are some good Korean/Japanese dramas to watch?

I just recently finished watching Boys over Flowers (Korean) and I absolutely LOVED IT!

So I'm wondering if there are any other great Korean dramas to watch that are similar in genre or idea. I'll probably try watching Hana Yori Dango since I already know the basic plot line, but I would love any recommendations and see what other people love.

    PLEASE watch Secret Garden! it's one of the best dramas ever.

    You're beautiful- really funny


    Protect the boss

    coffee prince

    my girlfriend is a gumiho

    Personal taste- if you liked Junpyo from BOF he's in there

    City hunter- Junpyo is in this drama too and he looks SO hot.

    -Protect the Boss (My favorite drama of 2011! Noh Eunseol lands a job as the secretary of the spoiled Cha Ji Heon.)

    -Can you Hear my Heart? (Bong Woori pretends to be stupid for her dumb father and Cha Dong Joo pretends to be able to hear to inherit his mom's company. The two fall in love.)

    -Flower Boy Ramyun Shop (Yang Eunbi takes over her father's ramyun shop with a few other guys, two of which are in love with her.)

    -Dream High (Six teens try to achieve their dream of becoming singers at Kirin Art School.)


    -One Liter of Tears (Aya is diagnosed with a rare disease that makes her unable to eat, walk, or speak. The disease ends up affecting her family, friends, and her classmate, Haruto.)

    -Nodame Cantabile (Nodame is a messy pianist that is instantly attracted to Chiaki, a talented and handsome pianist at her university. With the help of each other, they start to face their fears and move farther into the world of classical music.)

    -Ikemen Desu Ne (The Japanese adaptation of You're Beautiful. I personally like this version better. It's about a girl named Miko that joins a male idol group in place of twin brother because he is affected with an eye injury. She ends up falling in love with one of the members, Ren.)
