There are stories, that are made to be rewatched or reread because they have such a complex, multi-level plot with hidden connections inside.

I am definitely one to revisit things/places/moments where I've been happy; whether that be a place, a book, a movie and I have to include dramas. Love movies and like to collect them on DVD but my one rule is: Will I enjoy watching this movie again and again? If the answer is no, I don't make the purchase. I've read To Kill A Mockingbird 5 times...and that certainly isn't the only book I've re-read! And of course to rewatch/read/do I must LOVE IT. That is the only criteria because my "re-watch-o-meter" is entirely personal. It is never based on other's opinions. If I loved it, if it touched me, if it made me laugh or cry, if it made my heart feel happy and my brain feel pleasantly fuzzy...I'm all over that.
Coffee Prince is the first drama that comes to mind. I've watched it a lot. Kim Sam Soon - the same, along with City Hall and What's Up Fox and Now Love Shuffle (twice). I love the renewed feeling I get...The joy of again hearing the amazing line they spoke or watching an amazing scene that made my heart flip! Or watching that funny thing again and laughing all over again.
Sometimes when I hear people say "I'm not a re-watcher" it puzzles me. I think but...but...didn't you love it? And if you loved it...Don't you want to re-live it?
...great thread as always Rita...
