Things I like in a drama:

- views of everyday life (families eating breakfast, public school, setting the table, getting a haircut)

-views of different regions, travel abroad, country life

-tropes/practices not present in American shows (coworkers deciding where to eat, calling in-laws by family names, grandma getting fortunes read)

-all the ways to flirt (bringing partner to work, making bento boxes, indirect kisses)

-the hidden lives of introvert characters

-spotting easter eggs, product placements, familiar settings, and PSAs (is it just me or has the Taiwanese Department of Public Health done a bang up job with seatbelts and designated drivers?)

-turning tropes on their heads (Bromance, Strong Girl Bong Soon)

-that moment when the male lead exhales while breaking into a smile

-great chemistry, smitten characters, banter, and affection

-men with healthy emotional ranges (Bromance, Perfect Match)

- Happy endings and personal growth for everyone

- Rehearsing confessions in the mirror

- Multiple couples getting together by the end

- Spending lots of time with couple after they get together (Love, Now)
