"""Friends, we all have experienced the emotionally draining, mentally exhausting and simply SURREAL experience that is the Asian Drama world. This club is dedicated to the damaging illusions that Asian Dramas portray (Korean ones in specific...oohhh those Korean dramas. Who else experiences depression after the nth person has dies/finds out they have leukemia/alzhiemers/some other terminal illness, preferrably rare and expensive to treat?). For the sake of keeping a grip on reality, we must expose those damning semblances of completely unrealistic relationships and situations.

The world simply does NOT begin and end the moment you fall in love. That said, please enjoy the list below ^_~d """"

1) EVERYONE HAS CANCER.
1.5) If you don't have cancer, you will develop it the MOMENT you find your soul mate.

2) If you have a best guy friend, he is in love with you. And secretly you are too.
2.5) If he is in love with you but you are blindly in love with the asshole/bastard/jerk that pays you no attention, his love will be so strong that he will selflessly help you gain the attention of said asshole/bastard/jerk even though it breaks his heart to do so.

3) You and your boyfriend will always playfully chase each other on an ice rink, at the beach, or in the leaves. And you'll laugh for no reason and your boyfriend will hit you "playfully" but the force of his push will have you flying across the room. But it's okay. Cuz you're still laughing like a crazy person.

4) Brothers/cousin/uncles-newphews will always love the same girl.

5) You're allowed to make u-turns wherever you want in Korea. And there is never traffic on the side you want to u-turn to.

6) There is a super quick payment device that allows you to pay a bill quickly enough for a guy to run immediately out of a restaurant after his angry girlfriend storms out.

7) Hot, rich, younger men love fat, older vulgar women.

8) If you're sick, all you need is an IV to make you feel lots better.

9) There is vomit and urine all over Seoul at nights.

10) Fighting at a pojangmacha with a random stranger is merely part of a normal night's event.

11) Soju must cost 10 cents. Everyone drinks it everyday all the time, especially the poor people.

12) If you're rich, you're a jerk.

13) If you're poor, you're an angel.

14) Women sleep and wake up with a full set of makeup on.

15) You're not studying hard enough unless you get a nosebleed.

16) If you have a nosebleed, you most definitely have cancer. And you have no money to pay for the surgery that will save your life. And your liver is missing. We're not sure where it went, but it's making your cancer progress faster.

17) If you work in a sool jeep, you have massively curly hair and wear flashy colors from the early 90's.

18) You always order orange juice or coffee at a cafe. And you never drink it. EVER.

19) You will always call your boyfriend by his job title. Or simply sunbaenim. Or oppa. Never his name. Never. He doesn't have one.

20) If you TRULY love each other, you must die together in the end. Frozen outside instead of finding shelter like sane people. Just frozen....

21) You go to America you come back miraculously successful. You go to England you come back amazingly fashionable. You stay in Korea the only thing that changes is your hairstyle.

22) And if you come back with no apparent reason then it's because you have cancer.

23) Everyone always goes to the same hospital no matter where they are. And you must run into each other at the most inopportune moments.

24) If you stand out in the rain for more than five minutes, you'll end up with a fever and vertigo and people will rush you to the hospital to get some magic IV. And instead of taking an ambulance or driving they'll race you on their back.

25) Even if you're poor and can't eat, you never wear the same clothes twice.

26) If you play a poor kid, you always have dirt on your face and your hair is always messy.

27) If you're saving someone from being hit from a car, you'll push them out of the way and wait for the car to hit you instead.

28) Everyone has a long lost sister/brother/twin. Usually one they didn't know about. And it's even better if they love the same person you do (or is worst enemies with them), leading to complex love-situations.

29) If you don't want to answer your phone, you can't just turn it off. The battery
needs to be taken out.

30) All korean men can drink hard, smoke long, sing well and play piano. Usually all at the same time. And at the same restaurant that has a piano that they let anyone use.

31) If you're in a relationship, you must at one point leave and have your lover tearfully come RIGHT before you board the plane (vice versa applies as well. You can be the chaser). 60% of the time you see each other, the other 40% you're roaming around in circles and pass each other about six times, but miraculously never see them.

32) If you're getting off a plane, you're ALWAYS wearing sunglasses. ALWAYS.

33) All guys wear hideous tracksuits zipped up to their neck. Even if all they're doing is jump roping.

34) Girls will always storm off because they're mad and the guy will stoically grab them by the arm and swing them back- and by magic, not dislocate their shoulders.

35) Guys always look like they're 6 feet tall, even if they're only 5'10. Thank you camera angles.

36) Guys like to wear foundation, eyeliner and sometimes a smudge of lipliner.

37) You always get stuck in an elevator with someone who makes you feel uncomfortable. Even if there are six different elevators, you'll always be stuck in the same one with that bastard you hate (or just fought with).

38) Unless you're fabulously rich, your in-laws will always hate you

39) So will your sister-in-law.

40) Your brother-in-law might be pining away for you.

41) There are only 2 ways to kiss. You either press your lips against theirs with your mouth completely shut, and just press away for a very long and uncomfortable time. OR you devour the other person and suck out their soul. In both instances, the world spins.

42) A guy will always get the right size ring, even if you're never held hands.

43) People stare off into space and ponder a lot. They'll just stop in the middle of the road and watch a leaf on a tree for a good three minutes, and just ponder.

44) You'll get pregnant the first time you have sex.

45) You'll get pregnant if he kisses you on the forehead.

46) Hell- you'll get pregnant if you hold hands.

47) If you overcome great obstacles to be together, one of you must die. Probably due to cancer.

48) One korean man can kick the butts of 6 gangstas. Especially when they all stand in a circle and attack the guy one by one. Then when each of them get their butts OWNED, they wise up and attack the guy at the same time. Then the guy will get pulverized and bleed out onto the dusty concrete floor of the empty warehouse they've found to fight in. There will be a fire in a trashcan somewhere. And the girl will have watched this the entire time, screaming in horror. Instead of calling 119, she'll just watch and cry. But it's okay. Cuz the next day the guy will be fine with a few random bandages and a few face scars. But never a black eye.

49) It ain't a real fight unless the gangstas fight dirty with a stick or switchblade.

50) If you study in the states (preferably Harvard), you are one of the top students and can speak perfect English (as assumed by the reactions of those around you). Why the rest of the world OUTSIDE of the TV can't understand a single word uttered out of your melodramatic mouth is beyond me.

51) The paler the girl is, the better. (Paleness is also an indication of innocence. Obviously, as all the 'bad girls' are tanned and have makeup on. Lots of it. And wear vicious stilettos.)

52) When pale girls cry, their eyes do NOT turn red and puffy like normal people's eyes. They just turn shiny. Very shiny.

53) Nice rich guy always has evil parent(s). His father has to be the head of this gigantic company and spends lots and lots of money to ruin the son's relationship with a poor "uneducated" girlfriend - usually main female character.

54) Near the end of a drama, an "evil" chracter must go study abroad. Usually to the States or Europe (France!).

55) The main female character suddenly becomes attractive once the main male character starts liking her. All the other guys start finding her attractive.

56) People are capable of cleaning/cooking ONLY when they are wearing the brightest and tackiest apron-and-glove set they can find. If they are working *exceptionally* hard, they wear a funny hat/tie their hair up in the craziest, most haphazard way possible.

57) The first words you learn upon watching a Korean Drama were: Mi ahn hae, ahnyoung, gamsamnida, sarang hae, oppa/hyung/unnie/etc, babo, wae? and yobusaeyo. You might also start bowing when meeting people's parents. (I could never get rid of the habit aftewards...)

58) When people need to talk to each other and are in the same place at the same time, they NEED to drive silently for 20 minutes to some remote restaurant on the 30th floor where they will sit silently some more before uttering a single word of the needed conversation.

59) They NEVER touch the food or drinks. EVER. If they do for really odd reason, they never finish them, because one of them always gets angry and storms out of the restaurant and the one who's left behind sadly looks out the window or follows him/her.

60) If the protagonist(s) don't happen to have leukemia, they will for sure get hit by a car or go blind.

61) When the main female character cries, she suddenly has lost the ability to walk, or heck even stand...*plop* =]

62) It seems all characters must be told important life lessons or soul-jerking moral stories at least twice...

63) A young woman starts to mature when she stops curling her hair midway through the series.

64) If someone has cancer/an incurable disease, they must keep it secret. They *must* suffer alone. In fact, they must do *everything* secretly -- going to the hospital, getting the therapy, etc. There may be a few close calls, but no one manages to notice that they are sick until they are about to die.

65) Whenever the character finds out that he/she has cancer, cancer's always at its malignant stage therefore incurable. (Regular health checkups are unheard of.)

66) The character always stays good-looking/pretty nonethless how painful/deadly cancer is.

67) A woman must always speak to her lover in honorifics while he may speak down to her as soon as they've shared their first love-saturated ambush-hug.

68) The strongest physical manifestation of desire and love is the ambush-hug: they usually arise right after a wistful goodbye. The woman has to be the one to walk away. Always. This is when the man must grab her arm, twist it gently and with great skill so that her entire body can be enclosed (no doubt something he learned during his mandatory military service). Then he must hug her. HARD. For about 3 minutes. The woman must not move and must definitely wear a quizzical expression on her face even though she's probably wetting herself, and then act downright shocked when she can finally extricate herself from his fervent grip. The woman must ask, "What are you doing?!" which is code for "I'm so wet right now".

69) If there is a cross-dresser in the drama, and the cross dresser happens to be a man, then he will be the absolute most GORGEOUS woman in the entire series. If the cross-dresser happens to be a woman, she is either adorable, hot and/or will make other guys question their sexualities, resulting in personal stress and (gasp) more drama.

70) The grandmother of the house is the ultimate authority... everyone (dad, grandpa, daughters, sons, mom, grandkids, other distant relatives) must bow to the absolute monarchy. And when she dies, instead of celebrating for their freedom, they all bawl their eyes out... wailing and hitting the ground... [hal mon eeeeeeeeeeeeee :'( ]

71) When you have a flashback, you will stare off into the distance dreamily and the other person you are with (and that was probably talking to you) will also stare off into the distance until the memory is done, whereby they will ask if something is the matter and why you are pale, OR they irritably snap you out of it and keep rambling about their menial issues.
