I Just Finished a Drama

I Just Finished a Drama!

Hey all, I hope you’ll enjoy my new article :)
Actually, I’m the kind of person who only watches dramas in marathons, and I watch only one drama at a time.
After some monitoring, I had noticed that after finishing each drama, it leaves me with a certain mood and certain feelings, these “moods” or “feelings” vary, but I tried to sum it into 4 main categories, and here it goes:

1 - I love EVERYBODY!

Love is in the air, I mainly feel this way after a super happy ending that satisfies my every inconvenience, the bad guy gets exactly what he\she deserves and the main leads turn surprisingly smart and finally do what they should’ve done episodes ago!! I just LOVE this kind of dramas.

I remember feeling this way after watching Cinderella Man (The two main leads had some never ending misunderstandings that were all solved by Mr. Ahn <3 ),

The Moon That Embraces the Sun (Thank you my smart king ^^),

and Playful Kiss (EVERYONE ended with a significant other!)

An apology letter:

Dear Mom,

I’m truly sorry that I sometimes make you feel like you’d given birth to a retarded girl, but I swear to God I’m not!! (I hope :S).

But every time I get out of my room, after locking myself in for hours, with a sudden, very wide smile, spreading love around and hugging everyone, please know that I just encountered a drama with a satisfying ending.

                                                                                                                      Your loving daughter

2 - I HATE Everybody -_-

I personally feel this way after finishing one of those dramas that displays how the world is unfair, the bad guy gets the ending he\she deserves, but it was not entirely his fault, the world was at fault too, and the world never gets punished,

After watching this kind of drama, it just leaves me hating everyone, and wondering “how far can a person change according to hard circumstances? Who’s to blame? Are there people out there suffering similar circumstances?"

I had felt this way after watching Cruel City (how can it be so complicated), City Hunter (Lee Jin Pyo <\3 )

 and School 2013.

An apology letter:

Dear Family members\ Co-workers:

It’s not something you did, really! It’s not your fault, I just can’t trust you for a while!... This world we live in, I think I still need to know it better, that’s all.

Please wait for me patiently till I know this world better ooor till I go watch some cheerful drama (whichever comes first :P )

                                                                                                         Your spouse, sister, manager… etc..

3 - I’m ready for an adventure!
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u459/Fidelioa2291/MDL Article Pics/Finished7_zps3b1de64b.jpg

How could I have lived such a boring life so far?! There is soooo much more in this life and the human beings have unlimited powers!! I’d felt this way after watching some inspiring dramas, and even though this comes as a sudden mood change but some of these inspirations stays there (a rational amount) and, in my opinion, this is one of the positive side effects of drama addiction.

I remember feeling this way after watching Can You Hear My Heart (the story shows many characters with disabilities that they could overcome and not let it affect their lives nor their personalities),

A Gentleman's Dignity (40? So what? I’m still attractive and life still has much to offer to me!), 

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u459/Fidelioa2291/MDL Article Pics/Finished9_zps7216d08b.jpg

Rich Man, Poor Woman (it was “I” who was succeeded, it was not by chance or mere luck, I did it once and I can do it again!)

An apology letter:

Dear Friends:

I’m sorry for the sudden energy that hits me every once and a while and makes me push you into facing whatever it is that faces you in this life, I do believe that you can overcome whatever you want once you set your minds to, but I realize later on that you don’t have to face every.single.thing….. Sorry :$

                                                                                                                              Forever yours,
                                                                                                                           Your addict Friend 

4 - What… was it… that I… was feeling?
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u459/Fidelioa2291/MDL Article Pics/Finished10_zps4d23f4f0.jpg

Emotionally lost, I think this is the way to describe it! I feel this way after watching dramas with loose endings, and I HATE this feeling, this is the most annoying of them all, I find myself absent-minded wondering: “what?” “Then… why?” “I mean… did this just happen?” “Is it over???!!”

If you can’t wrap up your drama in a good way, then DON’T START WRITING IT, and if you mistakenly did (not sure how!) then please, for the love of God, DON’T MAKE IT INTO A DRAMA.

These kinds of dramas should be used if anyone ever tried to open a rehab center for drama addiction; it almost makes me want to give up watching dramas!!

I remember feeling this pain after watching Iljimae (a masterpiece that was turned to ash because of the poor so-called ending),

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u459/Fidelioa2291/MDL Article Pics/Finished12_zps9174cae3.jpg

K-POP - The Ultimate Audition (more like the ultimate disappointment! ), and I’d heard that the ending of Big is also painful, I hadn’t watched it and I don’t intend to.

An apology letter:

Dear me,

I’m sorry I made you feel this way and wasted your time for absolutely nothing, I’d learnt my lesson, and I’m trying to read reviews and make sure it’s worth it before watching new dramas, I can’t promise it’ll never happen again though!


This guide may be helpful for our friends and family members to understand the sudden mood change that occurs to us, drama addicts.

I think I missed lots of other moods since I don’t watch tragedies, so if you think there’s another mood change that I had missed kindly let me know of it ^^.

Love you all,

    Honestly though, after watching a really good drama, I feel a combination of all these things. The first mood is like wow that was such a great drama and it makes me happy just to think back on it and I feel the second mood because reality sucks and I hate everyone in real life (not really but you get what i mean) and basically what you said and the third mood is like wow what have I been doing with my life I could be living my life like the characters in that drama and then the fourth mood (which honestly, to me, isn't necessarily a bad thing, but more like an aftereffect of a good drama, even though I do feel pretty shitty) for me I feel lost not because the ending sucked but because the ending happened. How am I suppose to move on after this? I just think about all the things that could have possible happened but didn't. And I feel like my life is meaningless as a result. But none of this is a bad thing, to me, bad endings are the ones that wrap everything up and put an absolute end to it, because then it's really over. There's no where for your imagination to wander, and nothing to think about. Basically, there's no aftereffect and that's just lame. Then why'd I even bother watching it? To entertain myself for an hour each time? I mean, I do that too, but isn't it better when the drama seems to somehow continue even long after it's over. haha okay I'm rambling but to me, the feeling I get after finishing any good show is both the best and the worst feeling at the same time (but it's definitely a feeling I like)

    There's I think one mood missing: the one you get after watching a really good drama. A good feeling after watching it, leaving you without any energy left and wondering if you will ever be able to find a drama which is at least 10% as good as the last was.

    I agree with this "moods". Just too bad there isent so many "I Love Everybody's mood". I LOVE korean dramas, but i to often are left with the "What… was it… that I… was feeling?"..... And espesially when the drama has been amazing up to the ending...

    Haha, this is so true!

    I too have a feeling which takes me over the edge of a pool...and it's the feeling of depression.

    I get depressed because I can't watch the show anymore - it's really disappointing...:( I feel like I have a black hole in my heart - and I just feel depressed...*sigh*

    I just finished Cruel City last night, and my exact words to my friend who recommended that kdrama were: " Bullshit ending... of course"
