Dramas Based on Manga Part 5

This is a long over due update of my ongoing list of dramas and movies based on Asian comics. This list is never finished and never will be. There are just too many dramas and movies based on comics. I’m not listing the manga name, but I probably should. Although, most dramas and movies carry the same name as the mangas they are based on, so it’s not entirely necessary to have both titles as it gets redundant.

If you know of any from the full list that I might be missing, go ahead and drop a comment with the name of the drama and the manga it’s based on.
