On the plus side, I'm learning a new language. On the bad side, I have no friends. :(
But seriously, I could have a few more friends if I actually spent more time talking to them.

I think it depends on the type of drama and how much you watch it.

For example, dramas like Hana Kimi, Hana Yori Dango, or DBY are good for entertainment, but only in limited amounts. But no, I don't think they teach us about reality. They live in a world free of worry. The people in there are cute and sweet, but they are also selfish. They only care about their love and don't care about the world around them. They're nice, but few have bigger goals or dreams.

Meanwhile, some dramas are truly inspirational and teaches us about life. Like Guo Jing in LoCH and RoCH. He's a huge inspiration for me to care about the world and not just myself and people around me. Others, like We Were Young, taught me a lot about working and thinking.

i think its bad because we are pretty much just wasting hours and hours of our life watching something on our computer screen.
maybe its not wasting for some of us, because its a good way to pass time and you can learn lesssons.
but some of us actually watch about 10 episodes a day without fast forwarding, so they lose sleep and stuff.
i was like that before. i wouldnt go to bed until like 2-3 for a drama, and thats on a school night.
but i finally got a life, and i only watch like 1 episode on a weekend now.
living my life with my friends and family is much more fun than daydreaming and watching dramas thats soo far from my reality.
dramas are fun but we should all know our limit.

In most cases these dramas are just there to entertain us, altough to a certain degree they depict the society we live in. It's like fairy-tales; we don't fight dragons in reality to save the princess, yet it teaches us to fight for love, or doing the right thing (or however you want to interpret it). We're not poor, oppressed farm people, yet it tells us that even "normal" people who aren't rich, famous or beautiful can achieve something in life. It could teach us about morals, perhaps even give us pointers in how to handle certain situastions....

Watching dramas is a good entertainment, but some (or perhaps most of the crunchyrollers here -including me) situation, it can be a tad too much, and it is at the expence of our social lives.

Like anything else in life; too much of anything is seldom good for you.

But I still enjoy my drama


I love how you interpreted the fighting dragons and saving princess means we should fight for love. IT WAS SWEET AWWW.

It's good because you can learn a lot but bad because it takes up a whole lot of time especially if you become addicted

i agree with you on this

and since i am going to japan next year and i am learning the language it helps me
to practice more on the lnaguage when watching Jdramas

to me it's just a nice way of killing time but if it becomes an addiction it can affect your social life or school activity when you become glued to the screen for hours and hours...dramas can teach you stuff,but most of them are only fantasy,we like watching them,it's fun and entertaining but at the end of an episode or drama we have to separate the fantasy from real life and not build up false expectations of what we see there...

bottom line moderation is the key,if so the pros will outweigh the cons....that and too much hotness per day can do great damage to a girl as in too much drooling and heavy nose bleeds

bad to the point that i forgot more important things that should be done..because I'd prefer watching dramas than studying..reading..etc,!

good to the point that it helps me become analytic!
