2019 Watch Challenge

(Disclaimer: This challenge was first introduced on MAL by SheyCroix, I’m just trying to recreate it to suit drama/movie fans. I do not intend to take someone else’s credit and already got permission from MAL. Moreover, if you are a fan of Anime or Manga make sure to check out their 2019 Challenge.)



Rules:

  1. This challenge starts on January 1, 2019, and ends December 28, 2019.
  2. You have to pick the difficulty level (You may change the difficulty level later): 
    1. Super Easy: 10 drama/movies
    2. Easy: 20 drama/movies
    3. Medium: 30 drama/movies
    4. Hard: 40 drama/movies
    5. Extremely Hard: 50 drama/movies
    6. Merciless: 60 to 70 drama/movies
  3. You can’t use the same drama/movie multiple time. Each drama/movie can only be used once in this challenge.
  4. You can't include dramas/movies you watched previously. All dramas/movies must be started during the challenge period.
  5. Don't discuss anything in this thread. Just post you sign-up forum and turn-in forums. If you want to discuss this challenge use 2019 Watch Challenge Discussion thread.
  6. Don't keep posting updates on the thread, just edit your original post. You should only have 2 posts; the sign-up form and the turn-in form.
  7. When you finish a drama/movie add the title next to the selected challenge.




FAQ:

  • Can I add something I started watching in 2018 but is still ongoing?
    • No, only add things started during the challenge period.

  • I don't have a favorite actor, director, or screenwriter. What can I do?
    • Go to your favorite drama/movie and see who is the actor, director, or screenwriter and watch one of their other works.

  • Is the Challenge for Korean dramas/movies only?
    • No, you can watch dramas/movies from any country listed on MDL.

  • Can any award be chosen for the award-winning challenge?
    • Yes, any awards work. SBS, KBS, MBC, Baeksang, etc.

  • Can I list several dramas/movies for each challenge (Example: Watch a drama/movie adapted from a novel)?
    • No, only 1 will be counted. So, choose one (either drama or movies) and use it for the challenge. I will only count the first title.

  • Only a few titles are listed in the links you provided?
    • I added links to tags to make things easier for you, however, you don't necessarily need to use it. Moreover, not everything is tagged, so only a few things would show up. Hopefully, as we doing the challenge, we help each other and add tags to dramas/movies we watched.

  • Can you provide the code so I can copy it and keep the same format?
    • Unfortunately, copying and pasting codes in the forum is disabled. Sorry about that, nothing I can do. You can ask the admins to add the ability if you want.

  • Can I re-watch titles instead of watching new dramas/movies?
    • Yes.

  • If I watch a title that had less than 1000 users (for the less than 1000 user challenge), but during the span of the challenge the number increased, does it count?
    • It is okay. Just add the number of users when you watched it next to the title and I'll know that the number went up after you watched it.

  • Why does this challenge end on December 28, 2019?

    • Because I need time to check all the users who finished the challenge and make the 2020 challenge. Also, I want to spend time with my family.
