Here is a simple question. Why are Korean dramas so addicting?
Dear K-drama Fan,
Honestly, the Korean does not know. He absolutely LOATHES Korean dramas. Except for a few notable exceptions, the writings are terrible, the lines are unnatural, acting is awkward, everything is about hysterical yelling and the storylines defy belief. The Korean watched exactly three Korean drama series from start to finish in his life, and he hated himself for watching one of them. Give the Korean the DVD set of Six Feet Under, and leave him alone.
This is a particular pickle because many people become enamored of Korean culture through Korean dramas. And these people send such questions like "Why is Korean healthcare system so terrible? Seems like every Korean baby gets switched at birth." ARGH!
But the Korean's big belief is that people are not stupid. If they like something, they like it for a reason. So here is a Wiki question for all AAK! fans of Korean dramas -- why do you watch Korean dramas?
