Anyong!

I'm Alex, 32 years old. I've been watching Kdramas since about 2008.

I love kdramas because a kdrama can get me seriously addicted and feel in love, sad, happy, excited and an ocean of emotions I never felt when I watched TV or movies before. 

I'm always trying to find more dramas that give me the feels and drama withdrawal although they are very rare. I now tend to watch older dramas or really cherrypick the newer ones.

The dramas that make me feel that way are often more serious, mature, slice of life angsty love stories.

When I like a drama I get addicted and obsessed and I marathon through it. I'm also a compulsive rewatcher. I have seen each drama on my "got utterly obsessed" list bellow A LOT of times :)

Discovery of Romance



I like my drama to have:
1) Strong suspenseful love story - I'm a hopeless romantic and I love Kdramas for their addictive love stories. Not the "slow burn" kind of love but a climatic one please! :)
2) Tight writing. By that I mean events which make sense and relate to one another as oppose to random stuff occurring on screen :)
3) Believable characters - more than good acting, I need the writing of the characters to be consistent. When I can imagine them in real life and miss them after the drama is over. 
4) Mature story - its not a must but I like dramas targeted more to adult audience than a young one.
5) Satisfying ending which for me is where we get to see the main leads actually being a couple for at least a little bit after all the trouble. I feel tremendous heartbreak when after all the tension and teasers they just stare at each other and... the end!
6) Focus on the main leads - it's rare for me to be interested in the side stories of dramas like second leads or parents.. I usually see it as a filler and not a very sophisticated one. I usually fast them forward.


I don't like dramas with: (Except the obvious like bad writing, bad acting..)
1) Cartoonish over the top characters.
2) Awkward clumsy female lead
 with intentionally unflattering hair style - I don't get this trend and cannot get into those dramas.
3) Unclimatic climaxes - When things develop slowly and without drama I get bored. Or when you watch hours waiting for the big event to happen with a boom and then it just happens without a climax. I watch dramas for the drama! :)
4) Awkward physical contact - I'm not looking for hardcore physical scenes but just a natural behavior. The dramas that ignore completely physical contact feel plasticy to me.
5) Accidental Style - Accidental kisses (especially), falling into each other arms and stuff like that, coincidences, accidentally being in the same place at the same time, by chance hearing just a piece of a conversation that gives the wrong impression.. Its okay once in a while but not when the whole plot is based on it.
6) Lack of communication - as in misunderstandings, saying what they don't mean, not calling each other when it's convenient for the writer and obvious they should, the wrong person talks first saying all the wrong things and the other one leaving without saying the right ones... 
7) Unfinished important scenes - Most of all - a cut in the middle of a kiss, a confession, important conversations. WHAT happened then?! I want to see the situation from start to finish! I'm now at the point when I'm almost used to it because all dramas are like this but man, I still hate it.

PICTURE OF THE WEEK(S)

Ugly Alert!

I was really scared taking on a 133 episodes drama (my record was 24 so far) but after reading a few comments that caught my curiosity I decided to give it a try and I'M SO HAPPY I DID!
