theyre not misunderstandings. theyre called Idioms. American language has lots of that too. the counterpart of the saying above would be, "Curiosity killed the cat." try to literally translate that to Filipino and let's see if that doesnt baffle you.

super draggy.
i think they think the more drama the better.
they always make the lead suffer too much
usually unrealistic.

same old story..

so long.. (feels like its never gonna end)

super dramatic..(it may be better if it's just melodramatic)

same old actor/actresses (pertaining to GMA 7)

super duper corny (again I'm pertaining to GMA 7)

if a drama of one station becomes a hit, the other tv station will do a remake of it and it really pisses me off..

for example, Marina becomes hit in ABS-CBN and GMa 7 done a remake of it and is entitled Marinara..

I mean, what the??!!

Okay, I got the idea because I found a topic here that's about http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-183413/Annoying-Habits-in-Korean-Drama.html
Therefore, I thought why not make a topic similar to it but for Filipino dramas.

In Filipino dramas:
- the love rivals are always either related or best friends. Usually, it's related. (brothers or sisters!)
- There's always revenge and betrayal involved.
- SO MUCH MISUNDERSTANDINGS! As Filipinos say, "Maraming namamatay sa masamang akala." (Rough translation: Curiosity killed the cat.)
- There's always a rich/poor status between the two leads.

Well, go ahead and tell me the little things that annoy you about Filipino dramas.

Come on! There's lots of Pinoys in crunchyroll, I know that even a few will contribute to this list!


HMMMMMM..DON'T KNOE CAUSE i'VE NEVER EVER WATCHED ONE FiLiPiNO DRAMA SO yEAH

Not sure if it's been mentioned, because I haven't read the whole thread, just wanted to share my gripe with Filipino dramas. I have a big problem with the Taglog (is this the right language) to English back to Taglog in the middle of a conversation. It really bothers me. I can understand an English word here or there, but sometimes they have an entire conversation in English for about five minutes, and then go back to speaking their native tongue. Other than that, I just really don't get very into them. I'm more fond of Korean and Japanese dramas.

Uhh really bad acting? Haha just kidding.

I hate seeing fight scenes.. and crying scenes .. and PEOPLE WEARING OBVIOUS MAKEUP 24-7 WHEN FILIPINOS DON'T EVEN WEAR MAKE-UP THAT OFTEN (or everywhere) IN REAL LIFE =[
- like seriously, who wears green eyeshadow at home?
- or who wears eyeliner when they're in the hospital .. on their death bed ..

But yeah I don't like seeing them struggle.

Oh and the obvious 3D animation ahahah >_< ..

And I really don't like seeing SOME of the rather ugly actresses.. like the one in Becuz of U (the girl with brown hair who dumped the guy with braces -- ew!) .. or seeing actors/ actresses try to act American .. I mean what ever happened to culture?

hmm lets see...

1. they make the dramas very loooonngg..to the point that it gets so boring.
2. very predictable..no matter how many twist they put into the story line
3. and that yeah too much twist it gets tiring to watch
4. it annoys me how they always make remake of other dramas... -_-"
5. as for love teams i cant really feel the chemistry between them
6. overacting actresses/actors

&&& more. these are the reasons why i hardly watch filipino dramas and instead fall in love with k-drama and t-dramas!

they're so predictable..
almost every drama ends up in the same way...
that's why most Filipinos prefer watching dramas from other countries..
