Note: this isn't for bashing dramas! Personally, I love all the dramas that I mentioned! But it's just interesting to see what other plot problems that people find.

Hana Kimi, Butterfly Lovers, Coffee Prince, and other girls as boys dramas
How come none of the guys ever notice that the girls don't have Adam's apples? The only drama I've seen a guy notice that is in Semi-Gods and Demi-Devils by Duan Yu.
And have you noticed how guys always fall in love with her because of his "natural sense that she's a girl" but girls also fall in love with her? Do girls not have a "natural sense" or something?

Princess Hours
I never got the ending. The reason they exiled her has always been sort of badly explained.

Return of the Condor Heroes
How did Xiao Longnv, her teacher, and her grandteacher get food, cloths, and supplies if they've lived in a tomb all their life? Even if the servant went down the mountain for them, how would they pay for it?
And when she came out of the tomb, how did her eyes and skin adjust so quickly?

and for wuxia dramas in general...how do these people get money? Guo Jing and Duan Yu are the only main characters I can think of who have legitimate sources of money.

Same here, I also wondered why the girls didn't see them as girls but as guys.
And in Princess Goong she was exiled because it would show the people of Korea that
she was repenting for her mistake. But it wasn't a mistake, she was there to relieve her stress out.
And it happens that he followed her.

Its a drama, so of course they cant make it possible to make everything seems real.

But we can try. XD Jin Yong re-edited all 14 of his books twice to make it more believable, that's why if you watch his different versions of his dramas, there'll be plot differences. For example, in the new new version of the Return of the Condor Heroes, he split the guy who raped Xiao Longnv into two different characters, to make it more historically accurate since in the first and second version, the guy was named after a real historical person.

I love Nobuta wo Produce more than any other drama I've ever seen (except Absolute Boyfriend) but what the heck was with that "dream sequence" around about episode 9? It was like they really needed to tie up the "bullying" plotline.

I agree with you. I'm still a little iffy on what exactly went on, but maybe that's because I wasn't watching it as closely as I should've been, lol.

I was just watching HYD, and in the second episode the guards grabbed her and threw her out of the house. Inside the house, she was wearing the black dress, and then when they carried her out she was wearing her school uniform. Did the guards really allow her to change first, and then threw her out?
