Just recently, I have been hooked by Korean dramas, which is a surprising thing since I am a guy. A straight guy! But still, I find watching Korean dramas quite enjoyable. Maybe it is different than the usual TV soaps, especially with Mexican or Latin telenovelas that my mother loves to watch.
The problem with usual soap operas, including English ones, is their tendency to drag the story. Yes, they do drag a lot. Even if you miss several episodes, the characters and the situation of the story is still the same. Moreover, they have lots of drama lasts for years, which make the story frustrating. Then there’s their multitude of characters and the unending challenges the main characters has to face. If there’s a breath of relief or success, it would only be brief because there would be another problem that would come at their way and make the story drag longer again.
But with Korean dramas, things are different. The story is short. In fact, average number of episodes is 20 – 24, so it is possible for you to watch the entire series in one day. To be honest, I have done it already. Moreover, the story is easy to follow. It is not confusing and the plot isn’t too complicated. Some stories are refreshing and the drama is not exaggerated and too serious. Most of all, the characters are only a handful, so you can easily follow them all throughout the story.
For me personally, I like Korean dramas because Korean actresses are either pretty or cute. You see, I have a thing for Asian women and Korean actresses are really an eye-candy. Furthermore, I don’t get tired watching the characters because the characters are loveable.
