1. Over acting.
2. When they put too many events in there and it just seems they're just trying to stall for time.
3. Too cheesy and fluffy, like they end up happy together in the end, where they're singing karaoke and watching the sunset.
4. Too much crying.

A drama that is good throughout the start and middle and the ending ends up being crap.
Repetitiveness and situations in dramas which just drags on and on for ages, to the thought of giving up on that drama.

I absolutely hate when the drama starts off really good and then when it gets to the end, it either gets dragged on too long because noone can seem to figure out how to end it, or something rediculous happends and someone important dies within the last ten minutes and it just kills the rest of the series for doing that. Or the fact that at least one important person seems to be afflicted with a new disease every episode and there seems to be no medicine around. ( like getting a fever because you were in the rain for a few minutes, or you suddenly have a tumor that you didn't have yesterday, but its been growing in your brain for years.) Or its a repeat storyline. ( poor girl, rich guy, possibly a prince get together and all oppose / stupid girl likes smart guy who is a jerk, then end up together with other evil Exs and random people trying to stop them.)

i cannot stand it when you can tell that its acting
for example when they speak english in the shows or when people who are playing tourists or something...their acting is really bad
also when they dont see each other when they walk right next to each other...but i guess thats what a drama is about

When a drama has TOO MANY MORALS. Sometimes I feel like I'm being lectured about the "meaning of life". I kinda got that feeling from watching Honey and Clover.

Also when the lead girl sees something misleading and doesn't do anything about it. Like there was this one scene in Hana Yori Dango where Makio saw Tsukasa kissing another girl and then she just walked away! WHO DOES THAT?! The lead girl always jumps to conclusions without hearing people out.

AGREED. I like things I can believe will actually happen in real life. You can always predict that something like that will happen at least once in a drama though.

Also hate really cheesy "cutesy" scenes... you know the kind when the camera zooms up on the lead actress (it's normally in the character of a naive and stupid girl, ex. Xiang Qing from ISWAK) and her face goes all crazy and there's random brightly-coloured shapes drawn next to her. Yes, I know many dramas are adapted from animes/mangas, but they are in live action for a reason ??

I don't like unsatisfying endings.

I agree with whoever started this thread... the good looking actors/actresses who can't act. It's a travesty.

Don't like when they make really small tiny actions or events into something of epic proportions with multiple camera angles/Star Wars-y type music, etc.

Cliches also suck.

And I HATE the random characters that seem inserted purely to give some idiot actor a role... the ones that act stupid the whole time. I find this most prevalent in Taiwanese dramas (ex. Rolling Love, KO One, Fated to Love You, Silence all have at least one example of this).

Dragged out dramas. EW.

Hate the cliche silent, I'm-too-cool-for-you guy + perky, stupid-but-apparently-lovable girl combo.

There's probably more but I can't think of any right now.

My very least favorite part of a drama is when there is a conniving girl or guy attempting to tear the main couple apart [ie. Goong especially!] It just drives me crazy to see it when there are already so many other problems in the story.

I also don't appreciate:

*Poor acting
*Poor soundtrack
*Poor adaptation, or completely skewed [if adapted]
*Little to no chemistry between leads
And also, a rushed or boring plotline that isn't required.

i hate it when a kissing scene looks so forced.
like when the leads are just standing there all stiff with their lips stuck together.
it's like you feel like the characters they're supposed to be portraying aren't really in love or something.
i'm not saying that they should have a full on makeout session (unless it's supposed to be one) but at least kiss like they mean it they are after all acting.

-it's okay for the actors/actresses to cry, but if it's about something lame, omggg.
-it's also okay for the plot to be predictable in my opinion. just not TOO much. as long as it still captivates me
-if the wholeee drama is CHEEESY. i actually like cheesy endings, because that's what they are really..but if it's episode after episode, yuckk!
--BAD PACE! i like it when the timelines or..something like that is balancedd. like the transitions you said. that's what really gets me. like if they focus so much on this one problem, and then when they get to the Real plot it ssuddenly ends. what the heck happened?
-i also verrrrrrrrrrrry much appreciate camera work and directing. if it's poor then the plot must be reeeally good for me to keep watching
-ACTING! yessah. sometimes when i'm watching dramas, i'll get so annoyed at some person's acting and start saying "oomg" like every 5 minutes when they have a poor reaction and blahhh
