my lovely sam soon is a good one
you should try it
OH or Which Star Are You From?
if you can find it
its really good.

but i agree with you on my girl
i tried watching it
i hate the girl
cause i hate freeloaders/liars/cheaters
so i guess that didnt work well with me.

For me, Korean dramas are dragged out too long. That's why I prefer Japanese dramas.


i agree
jdramas pretty much stick to one problem in the plot
where as in korean dramas theres multiple obstacles..
which tends to confuse me.

like seriously! i have ALOT of friends that r like obsess with korean dramas while i find them pretty boring..
i mean i'ts not like i've never given it a chance! in fact i given it PLENTY!
i've seen my girl which i was able to finish till the end ONLY cause i found lee jun ki to b quite a hottie
i tried goong, the drama that everyone's crazy over and i found i VERY boring
i watched full house, realy at 1st it was very good but towards the end it dragged ALOT
i started watching coffee prince but couldn't take it anymore after the 1st 1/2
then i watched a love to kill and the start of the drama just made me shut off my pc
and i really find the krean dramas very original and has no creativitiy!
it's always about poor/werid/optimis girl meet rich/mean/cold hearted guy
and another pair of guy & girl trying to break them up! it's like wat the hell!
\can't they have love tringles? or just 2 people in love?
and why does it always have to have the main 2 character start of hating each other then in the end likeing each other? tha'ts just getting old!

i'm not sure if all korean dramas r like this but that's wat i got fromt eh one's i've seen
so i was wondering is u can suggest GOOD kdrama for me that i might actually like
i heard they are making a korean version HYD. god i hope they don't mess it up!


so i'm quoting you now to make sure you do read this. haha. anyway... why i like korean dramas?? it's hard to say exactly. i started off watched a love to kill as my first kdrama. and i DEFINITELY have to agree with you that the first two episodes drag and maybe even the third. but i was committed to finishing it and it did pick up. for me at least.

i really enjoy kdramas and kmedia in general. i really feel that they capture things right. but i really find that kdramas are great because they are over in usually one season, like jdramas, but there is more meat to them because there are usually twice as many episodes. take for example, the new jdrama maou starring ohno satoshi and ikuta toma. this drama was based on the kdrama called the devil with joo ji hoon (shin goon in goong) and shin min ah (eun suk in a love to kill) as well as uhm tae woong (hak do in delightful girl choon hyang *basically the second main guy*). anyway... when i watched the first episode of the jdrama they introduced everything right away and made us informed on everything... we had nothing to really be confused about or think over and everything was pretty much resolved in that episode but the main plot (obviously). but when i watched the korean version they slowly started showing us things and left us very confused and only gave things away when you thought about it. and also all the problems followed over onto the next episode. i personally think it adds to the drama to have more space to be able to keep us guessing. jdramas get right to the point while kdramas give you time to settle into the show and really think about things. i like that.

another reason why you're feeling bored by these shows and that they are repetitive is because you are watching the ones with the same basic plots. there are plenty of kdramas that don't fit that perfect plot. albeit they aren't necessarily all about romance... but i've honestly come to love kdramas and kmovies.. i really feel that koreans do media right. though they do have many contradictions i always love watching korean media. it is so interesting to me.

here are some things to try:

kdrama:

the devil (a lawyer with a grudge on a detective who has a past connected with his own and a woman who can see an objects history by touching it. good show if you're into a little mystery)

iljimae (still airing in korea but VERY good... starring lee jun ki, it's a historical show. it does take a while for the show to REALLY pick up... but i really enjoy it)

which yoo hee (it pretty much is a formula triangle drama, but it's the woman who is a rich bitch and the guy is an impoverished cook who ends up working as her housekeeper to pay back a debt to her.... it's REALLY great)

my lovely sam soon (it has the formula of a kdrama, but seriously... it is one of the BEST shows ever. the girl isn't a stupid loser that can't stand up for herself. and it stars hyun bin and daniel henney... what a good formula for a great drama!!!)

crazy for you (only if your into INTENSELY angst-y dramas. i haven't finished it yet... only made it to ep. 10 so far because that's where all things turn for the worse... but yoon kye sang is SO gorgeous. )

coffee prince (give it another try. i'm sure if you make it past the first episode you'll love it... once it picks up it seriously does. and also the first ep. is actually the worst of all of them. trust me)

kmovie:

3-iron (hardly any words spoken but it is such a beautiful movie to watch. highly recommend)

windstruck (it amazed me how good this was. it turned from a cute romantic comedy into a tragic romance that totally rips you apart and puts you back together over and over. such a great film)

sad movie (a compilation of a bunch of different loves. really really great movie)

do re mi fa so la si do (typical love triangle but in a really different way *at least i think so*)

gangster high (the korean translation is actually "tough love". great movie with great kick ass action scenes)

anyway... i hope this helps you understand kdramas and maybe even gets you into korean media for good!! let me know how it goes!! :)


thanks for the suggestions! and actually i did come aroudn to finish goong and it wasn't as bad as i though although the end was a bit draggy. also i did start watching more of coffee prince and got to the 4th epiisdoe and i can tell u now that i don't liek this drama. both of the guys are ugly! i'm sorry but good looking guys in drama matter alot to me. or else it wouldn't make since to me that 2 good lookign girls would fall for 2 ugly looking guys. also i'm not a big fan of mystry drama i'm more into romance/comedy....

bullllllshit korean dramas is all repetitive and cliche.... i've watched soooooooo many dramas and when watching a korean one i can predict almost 100% whats gonna happen...
but then again the reason i even watch it is cause of the cast

The reasons why I watch Korean Drama is that they have creative stories, and sometimes you can watch how their cultures different from others and my favorite Korean Actors are there too!

i like korean dramas because its fun and sometimes OH SO CUTE!!!! most of the time though, its because of the hot actors in it. lol, full house-rain. hahahhahaha. goong-prince yool gun? but ugh, those are the only 2 korean dramas that i love though. i tried coffee prince but eh, not interested. you should try banjun dramas by dbsk. theyre "dramas" but not long. each drama is at least 1 hour and the guys are SUPER HOT! (dbsk, mmm) anyways, theres no specific love story. just dbsk being cute and lovable.

they help me study. some dramas i liked that weren't very popular are "the devil" a detective/triller type, "three dads and one mom" comedy/romance with not much romance. and currently watching "iljimae" dynasty era drama with a robin hood theme... dunno. i like them. better than the trash on american tv these days. i personally don't ever want to see miley cirus' face ever again, whether it be a movie, show or advertisement...
