Drama Theology ... 101
And low, he came down from the mountains and carried with him a rolled scroll tucked tightly to his side.
The people gathered and cried out - "Tell us! Tell us! What you have learned!"
The man stood and studied the crowd. All he saw were eager eyes staring back at him.
He slowly unrolled the scroll.
"THIS..." he announced to the huddled masses, holding the scroll towards the heavens, "Is the first law of drama..."
Carefully he lowered the scroll and began to read.
"And so it was foretold that every good drama shall have a NEAR MISS. A scene in which the man and the woman pass each other; be it by driving in opposing lanes; riding in elevators, one ascending one descending; or any other chance encounter that brings the man and the woman near to each other without either ever knowing."
He paused and looked around at the faces of the masses.
"But who will believe such a thing??" cried a woman from a food stall.
"All shall believe," replied the man.
"But how many different ways can there be to do that?" asked a young girl standing amongst her friends.
"As many ways are there are stars in the sky," replied the man.
"This can not be so!" shouted a man from the doorway of a darkened house. "It makes no sense that they would pass so close and never know!"
"It need not make sense, for this is the realm of the drama, and so it has been foretold - so shall it be."
And the people cheered loudly and joyously!
"Cheer not!" said the man solemnly, "For the near miss will bring angst and heartache for a short time."
The people stopped cheering, and cast their eyes low.
"And is that how it will end then?" said a small child sitting in the sand playing by herself.
"Oh fear not little one, for the drama shall never end with the near miss, in fact there may be more than one to appear within each story."
The small child looked up with nothing but innocence in her eyes and asked. "Then how shall it end?"
The man just smiled tenderly, and rolled up the scroll.
As he turned his back to the crowd, it was only the little girl who heard him softly say "It was not the stories which were foretold, but just the rules that will govern them."
With that the man walked confidently into the sunset to spread the word of the Drama.
Alright ladies, and you gents lurking about.
What I want you to discuss here are the "rules" that you think dramas have to follow, or do follow and shouldn't.
I gave just one example here and I am sure you guys can come up with many more!!
Also if you like you can give examples.
I am currently watching Flower Boy Ramyun Shop. And in it the male and female leads had a "near miss" in a REVOLVING DOOR! Wow. The SAME door. Also it might be fun to list all the dramas that follow these rules!
So if you know a drama that has a near miss, please let us know! I look forward to hearing what you all have to say!
