(9.5-10.0) = Daebak! (My favourites. Worth re-watching again and again.)
(8.5-9.0) = Loved it. (I might re-watch it again someday.)
(7.5-8.0) = Overall, I enjoyed it. (I'll re-watch my favourite scenes, and probably skip the rest).
(6.5-7.0) = It was okay. Had some good parts. (I likely will never re-watch it.)
(6.0 or less) = (Dropped)
Some of my favourite tropes are 'enemies become lovers', 'gender bender', 'noona romance', and 'slice of life'.
Background: My first love was manga (I collected tankobon as a child). My second love was chinese action movies. And my third love was British period dramas. Naturally, it was fated that I would discover Asian dramas eventually...
In 2013, my best friend discovered Boys Over Flowers on Netflix one day, and she soon got hooked into kdramas. She tried for months to get me to watch them with her, but to no avail. One day however, she told me about a gender-bender called 'You're Beautiful' that sounded really interesting, so I gave it shot and loved it. Then she recommended Secret Garden, which I also marathoned. Seeking another gender-bender, I discovered Coffee Prince and fell totally and completely in love with it. By that point, I was now hooked as well.
She then decided that I should also get into kpop with her as well, so she sent me links to some MVs... and well... the rest is history as they say. (I'm saving up for a trip to SK already. Gotta plan for one of those fanmeetings one day, right?)
When I first started watching kdramas, I had a tendency to rate every show as "..The best thing ever! 10/10! Yay!" But now that I'm a few years into it, I've started to go back and re-rate previously watched dramas with a more critical eye. (I might even start writing detailed reviews someday soon.) If I have 'friended' you on here, it's because we have similar tastes and/or you like shows I'm interested in, so I'm curious about what you're watching too. I hope you feel the same about me as well. Please don't mind if I don't talk much, as I'm a very shy quiet person.
