I'm really late to the kdrama game (started watching in November of 2016), but that doesn't matter....right? My first kdrama was Dream High, followed by Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart. My first ongoing kdrama was Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. I tend to judge a drama based on its first two-four episodes before deciding to drop it or not. I prefer kdramas over other Asian dramas, but if there's a really good non-Korean drama, I'm willing to try it :-). My favorite genre combo is action and romance. Other favorite genres: crime, thriller, police, law, comedy, slice of life, psychological.
I watch anime when I'm in a drama slump. Find me on MyAnimeList! ^_^
Oh, and I love BTS, EXO, Taeyeon, and IU. ;-) ARMY x EXO-L. My ultimate role model is Henry Lau.
Fav BTS song: Spring Day
Fav EXO song: The Eve
Fav song by Taeyeon: Fire
Fav songs by IU: Everyday with You & Autumn Morning
BTS bias(es): Jimin, J-Hope, Jungkook
EXO bias: Chanyeol!!!
How I Rate
10: Perfect <3 (so far, I have only given out two 10s)
9-9.5: Amazing ^_^ Very minor issues.
8-8.5: Great :-) A couple plot holes here and there, but overall it was pretty good (most of my ratings fall into this category).
6-7.5: Average. Plot, acting, OST, etc were all average.
3-5.5: Very disappointed :-( It wouldn't hurt to pass this one.
0.5-2.5: Yikes *__* This show shouldn't have been made.
0.0: Dropped 0_0 I usually don't rate dropped dramas because I haven't watched the entire drama, but when I do, it's because I feel I've watched enough to guess how it's going to end.
Note: I tend to be more lenient with my ratings for web/short dramas because I know they're shorter and have less time to develop the storyline and the characters. I tend to be more strict with my ratings towards movies because movies often have a longer production period and a bigger budget.
A couple of my fav characters (mostly 2nd leads...)
Seok Dong Cheol (played by Woo Do Hwan in Save Me)
Baek In Ho (played by Seo Kang Joon in Cheese in the Trap)
Song Ji Won (played by Park Eun Bin in Age of Youth)
when you tell your non kdrama-watching friends: "just try ONE episode!!"

About 95% of the kdramas that aired in 2017 have disappointed me, but there were a couple that blew my socks off. Here are my favorites of 2017 ;-)
