I'm technically still new to the Asian drama shows, I say technically because I have watched only ONE series, and that was a live-action adaption of the anime "H2", and I thought the live-action was MUCH better then the anime.

But I'm not looking for more live-action adaption, well if you list more that would be great, but I'm honestly wanting to get the Asian Drama a shot, as it seems to filled with romcoms which I'm a fan of.

My favorite genres are romantic comedies and mysteries, so PLEASE start me out with something funny or very mysterious, thank you all for your time and help.

If you want something funny AND mysterious. I would recomend Nazotoki wa Dinner no Ato de. It's a Japanese drama. I think it's a good candidate under this type of genre (>o<)

It's about a rich girl who work as a detective, but she lacks a few deductive skills. Because of this she relies to her butler to help solve cases.
Not only that her partner is weird. Only jumps to conclusion on his own record, he thinks he is the best just because he is a millionaire and ''handsome''. He believes all women likes him.

I hope this will help^^

Protect the Boss would probably be a good romantic comedy. For the mysterious aspect, you could look into Prosecutor Princess. o:

Edit: Oh, and City Hunter as well as IRIS. C:

If you like detective/mystery try Shibatora. It's a great show. I thought I wouldn't like it at first, but I stuck with it and I really enjoyed it. Give it a shot :)

Kage no Gundan
"If you tremble with indignation at every injustice, then you are a comrade of mine"

When the union's inspiration through the workers' blood shall run
There can be no power greater anywhere beneath the sun
Yet what force on earth is weaker than the feeble strength of one
For the Union makes us strong

Agreed with the recommendations above for Tokyo Dogs (funny!) and Shibatora.

There are many mystery or funny/detective doramas.
-Galileo
-Detective Conan
-Boss/Boss2
-Mr Brain
-Puzzle (this is hilarious!)
-QED
-Hancho

More towards thriller/mystery (not comedy)
-Guilty
-Bloody Monday/Bloody Monday 2
-Untouchable

Romantic comedies
-Ouran High School Host Club
-Otomen
-Hanakimi

You forgot the most important thing about Nazotoki wa Dinner no Ato De ---> Sho-chan. I think many fangirls watch that dorama simply because of him. :D

All are romance comedies, unless otherwise stated.

For Korean dramas,
Anything by Hong Sisters

Underlined = Their biggest hits.

Big (KBS2, 2012) -> different from their earlier dramas
The Greatest Love (MBC, 2011) ★ -> It goes a bit into how hard the entertainment industry is.
My Girlfriend is a Nine-Tailed Fox (SBS, 2010) ★ -> Personally, i don't like it.
You're Beautiful (SBS, 2009) ★ -> Their most popular work
Hong Gil Dong (KBS2, 2008) ★ -> Historical drama
Couple of Fantasy (MBC, 2006) ★ -> Based on the 1987 American movie Overboard. I find it the funniest kdrama I've ever watched.
My Girl (SBS, 2005) ★ -> My favourite work of theirs(I watch about 5 or 6 of their work). I think I watch it twice?
Delightful Girl Choon Hyang (KBS2, 2005) ★ -> Their first work, the 1 that got them popular. High school romance.

ALSO,
Coffee House -> But you need to like the right couple
Smile You -> My favourite drama of all time. Romance+Comedy+Family. 45episodes x 1hr 05mins per episode. I like it a lot.

Can you hear my Heart - Drama but there are also funny parts.You will experience crying+ laughing in some of the episodes. Romance between a deaf boy and a girl with a dim-witted father. Same screenwriter as 'Smile You'.

Atashinchi no Danshi is a must. It's funny yet there are dramatic scenes that'll make you cry.

a really good start might be any of the works that the hong sisters wrote ^^
my girl
hong gil dong
delightful girl chunhyang
fantasy couple
my girlfriend is the nine-tailed fox
the greatest love
Big
These are all romantic comedies, but there are also really sad parts that made me cry. A good start, especially my girl (tho it's kinda old)
