Korean Dramas
Posted 7/21/08 , edited 7/21/08
I'm not a fan of Korean dramas.
-There's just too much drama. You think Days of Our Lives or As the World Turns is dramatic? Obviously you've never watched Stairway to Heaven. Cancer, eyeball transplants, car accidents, evil bitches..the whole shebang and you haven't even seen the end of it.




-The girls are always hotter than the guys (no homo, I don't care about the guys )



-Everyone cries. The guys are demanned very badly. It's almost sad. The girls usually tend to be spineless people who can't live without men. They are fragile china dolls combined with a never ending fountain spewing of tears. I can't stand the crying in every other episode. There are other healthier ways to channel out their feelings. And to be honest, I crack up most of the time thinking back on the emo parts.



Next time you pick up a dvd box for a Korean drama and the summary isn't in English, no worries. I assure you that in every drama...

There is a love triangle, or some sort of other really warped shape that involves multiples of other individuals. Brothers, cousins, and other family relations will always love the same girl. Everyone has a long lost sister or brother they don't know about. A happy couple will be torn apart, usually sometime during the middle of the season, when the truth is revealed. Also, if you have a brother in law, he's probably secretly pining away for you.
If you have a best guy friend, he is in love with you. You don't know it yet, but you are too, which you will realize during your wedding vows with the rich man you originally thought you loved.

You're allowed to make sudden U turns and drive like hell wherever and whenever you want to chase after the girl of your dreams who is about to leave the country. Traffic is never an issue because the roads are always conveniently clear of cars during these spontaneous moments.

Someone always has cancer. Always

In K dramas if you're rich, you're a jerk, but you'll eventually turn a new leaf. If you're poor, you're an incredibly wonderful person to make up for what you lack in your wallet. Even if you're incredibly poor, you will never be seen wearing the same clothes twice.

The bigger character will always have the bigger car to make up for the size he lacks in...no further comment.

If an accident happens to a person, instead of calling an ambulance with a handy cellphone or driving a car to the hospital, someone will race you there on their back. Usually in the rain.
If you're saving someone from being hit by a car or bus going 5 mph, you'll shove them out of the way and wait for it to hit you instead.

Somebody will get beaten up, usually because of a girl. The girl will stand there and cry, screaming with horror instead of calling the police.

There will be only 2 ways to kiss. Either your lips will press and just glue to each other for a long period of time (usually happens when your man stops you from boarding that plane) or you guys will vacuum yourselves to each other's faces and have a competition to see who can suck out each other's soul first. You'll get pregnant the first time you have sex.

If you're in a relationship, you must at one point leave so your lover can race to the airport and stop you in the nick of time, right before you board the plane. Usually he will yell "_(insert name)____!!! STOP!! Don't leave, I LOVE YOU!!!" and you will run towards each other and embrace; the camera will pan around the two of you to emphasize the union. 60% of the time it will be a success, but for the other 40%, you guys will roam around in circles and pass each other a million times but never see each other.

If you truly love each other, you must die together in the end.

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


So to those who join the facebook group "Asian Dramas Gave Me Unrealistic Expectations About Love and Life," I have no idea what you're smoking but leave me out of it lol.

Usually my topics are more of a "hit and miss". Meaning that they're gonna be locked cause someone posted up a similar topic such as this. Oh well lol.
