So, I'm fairly NEW to drama-land (April 2015)!

tumblr_nsy8ejIGC21uth261o1_500.gif

So take care of me, okay? I don't have nearly as many dramas under my belt as some of the veterans here. 

tumblr_nhtl69gnpk1r88604o1_400.gif

I mean, it's kinda scary that this place literally breaks down the amount of days, weeks, months, or even YEARS that someone has been watching dramas....By scary I mean impressive!

tumblr_oag2dcTND81rvps6bo1_400.gif

tumblr_nwauhdtQp61r5c02zo1_500.gif

But....you know, addicting and all that, so no judgment here--I'm sure fairly soon I'll get up there to the: "Holy crap?! That person has watched over 387 days worth of dramas?!?! ......Congratulations, I'm impressed." category. Soon, it will come soon. 

tumblr_nw5fp4QyWy1ue8awto1_250.gif

But I think the most important step is realizing and admitting that I have an addiction. 

tumblr_nrx3mqNumr1scm9d0o2_r1_540.gif

And also admitting that my life at this point would be too sad to return to the normal "No dramaland" world...

tumblr_nkc6bgQ3lD1skrdpto2_400.gif

My biggest annoyance with this addiction is basically the friends/family now saying that I'm into those "Dumb Asian Soap Operas"....

tumblr_nbq7fn1sQG1s6kgn7o1_400.gif

.....Which, look....just stop it. Don't comment about something you don't understand.

More for me? ......I guess?

For those of you interested in my rating system:

10 - Absolutely perfect--touching, and either impeccably written (or my enjoyment levels went through the roof). Example: Another Miss Oh (K-drama) Highly recommended

9.5 - Pretty darn close to perfect and a stunning drama. My enjoyment levels were extremely high. Example: Nirvana in Fire (C-drama) Highly recommended

9 - An amazing drama that was very well put together. I thought it was fantastic! Example: Healer (K-drama) Highly recommended

8.5 - A really good drama that was very enjoyable and a fun ride. Example: My Girlfriend is a Gumiho (K-drama) Highly recommended

8 - Well above average in most parts and very entertaining. Example: Secret (K-drama) Recommended

7.5 - For the most part, it was well put together. A nice watch. Example: Coffee Prince (K-drama) Recommended

7 - Some flaws, but not enough to deter from enjoying and watching. Example: Love Me If You Dare (C-drama) Recommended

6.5 - A little above average. Enjoyable, but it has some problems. Example: Secret Garden (K-drama) Recommended with a grain of salt

6 - Only slightly above average. Some pretty big problems/inconsistencies, but still more good parts than bad. Example: DotS (K-Drama) Recommended with a pretty big helping of salt

5.5 - Pretty darn average. Some enjoyable parts, but also some pretty bad parts. Example: I Remember You (K-drama) Recommended only for certain moods

5 - The definition of average. Equal parts good and bad. Example: Tatta Hitotsu no Koi (J-drama) Recommended only for certain moods

4.5 - Slightly below average - we are encroaching on bad territory here. Some good parts, but not enough to make-up for the bad. Example: Innocent Man (K-drama) Don't recommend

4 - Below average - only a few good parts, but it's crushed by all the badness. Example: Faith (K-drama) Don't recommend

3.5 - Really below average. I didn't enjoy it, and there are only a couple parts I liked. I rolled my eyes waaaaaay too much. Example: Orange Marmalade (K-drama) Don't recommend

3 - Bad. Just really, really not good. Maybe only one small thing I liked. Example: Itazura na Kiss (1996) (J-Drama) Avoid it!

2.5 - Terrible. It was extremely frustrating and I have trouble picking out things I liked. Example: Aftermath (K-drama) Avoid it!

2 - Horrible. Don't understand how anyone could possibly like it and I'm confused by anyone who rates the drama high. Example: Dramaworld (K-drama) STAY AWAY!!!

1.5 - Horrendous. Bad everything and it's a miracle that I even got through it. Example: Sanaeha Sunya Kaen (Lakorn) STAY AWAY!!!

1 - A Travesty of a piece of work. Everything went horribly and I hated it. I forced my way through it and probably fast-forwarded waaaaaaaaaay too often. Probably even makes me mad and I'm angry I can't rate it a .5! Example: Game Rai Game Rak (Lakorn) STAY AWAY!!!
