most koreans drama are based of a love triangle that involves four people and then that spread to other countries so now taiwanese dramas are mostly love triangles too and it's becoming too typical and boring

are there any interesting dramas left?
i feel like i have watched all of them and there is nothing left to watch

so now i'm planning to write my own story/drama-ish type of thing.
people...pitch me ideas of what you would like in a story
and i'll add them all together

update 8/9: i have an idea for one. tell me what you think of it. btw..it's not fully developed so this is like the outline of it

a couple has a child ( i can't decide whether it should be boy or girl or the age yet) then a former lover of that couple ( can't decide whether it's gonna be the man's old lover or the woman's) and well that person steals the child and sets the house of fire making the parents think that their child is dead. then the former lover leaves the child at an orphanage..so she can "adopt" it later..making her look like a parent to the child and raise. but something goes wrong..so she missed the chance of adopting it and the real parents adopted that child..not knowing it was their child.

so what do u think?

UGH i hate love triangles too. Or love squares. Or love pentagons and hexagons.
Korean producers just love how geometry fits into dramas.


I also like the idea of a cool hot stud falling for an average girl.
Or an IDOL falling for an average girl.
Sounds like Smiling Pasta, huh?
Well...I don't care as much for originality--just a good story and unexpected twists [=

i'll give you an idea..

characters: *all in different schools and different cities*
choi- popular in school not because he is smart, athletic or handsome, he is a so-so average
jade- the talented low-stat in school. pretty but not sexy or have the perfect shape
spencer- twin brother of jade, more on the popular guy but hates attention
casey- the brat girl in her high school, smart but have a iron-hand!

they have different status in their lives.. choi is a very friendly guy, he is not handsome not that smart and not that very into sports. Students in his school know his name and they always says hi to him whenever they meet him. all the freshman on his school talks to him when they had a crush or infatuations on one of his colleagues. or sometimes some of his classmates asks him to write a love letter. Choi is an under dog, when he was in first year he tried to join the choir on his school but before the announcement of who passed he already quit, even though he passed. then after that he joined the theater club where he gained some confidence, but on his junior year he tried to join again the theater club but now it has a audition, afraid to make a fool of himself he didn't dare to audition. so without any choice he joined the book club where he gathered many of his friends. then on the senior year, he joined the table tennis club because of his friend. he was very fortunate because he got in into the volleyball varsity. choi's mother is in the united states to work, and his father is a part of the army so it barely go home. he has 2 sisters and 1 brother. after his graduation, he gathered all his strength and he walked into the black or dark alley to change his life....

<want more..? for other characters' story just say so.. ^_^ i'll do it..>

I totally understand YOU!! that's why I'm taking a break from typical love stories of 2 guys, 2 girls, rich and poor, love triangle--square, misunderstandings and etc.

But I feel like there are still dramas that are very good and stay away from the typical teen drama.

For example, If you want something different, I recommend
1. Bump of Lover 17--a murder mystery with many twists and it's very interest.
2. Life--talks about the reality of bullying in high school
3. Saito-San--mother who is wants to be a good role model to her son, so she corrects people and stand up for what's right
4. Edison no haha--talks about how geniuses are mistaken as trouble children, revolves around elementary school and teachers
5. Hotaru no Hikari--love story--but very good and funny, about a girl who is a total bum when she's off work


At the same time, like the dramas that I just listed, not a lot of people have watched it or heard of it and that's because it is not a typical teen love drama. Most people are into that, so directors produce more of those type of drama. Everyone wants to feel sadness and relate to the character and fall in love with them the same time the main character does. that's reality. we all want drama.
