about Boys over Flowers. I watched it mainly for the
couple. I'd just wait out the entire week waiting for Mondays and Tuesdays to come. That couple was so f-ing
Generally speaking, I have to suspend my disbelief when watching K-drama, b/c they are set in dimension separate from this reality. On the whole, I find most k-dramas rather cringe-worthy, irritating, and repetitive. The girl protagonists are always ditzy, cutesy, dumb, comical, spineless, and weak.
The plot either has to do with an "attractive" rich guy, his bitchy but elegant ex-girlfriend, and the heroine who's cute, innocent, dumb, and not-as-rich. There's always some type of CANCER. Eye cancer, brain cancer, lung cancer, somehow some character always get cancer and dies (Stairway to Heaven - I'm looking at you). It's becoming snore-worthy predictable.
It's also hard for me to adjust to the humor in K-dramas. Since I'm use to British/American humor that relies on a lot of mockery, sarcasm, irony, wit, subtlety, and dryness, I don't find the exaggerated sound effects and facial expressions in K-dramas all that funny.
Still, I admit that K-dramas are addictive. Like stay-up-3-nights-in-a-row-addictive. Watching them is a good fun. I'd recommend My Name is Kim Sam Soon for anyone who is on the lookout for a drama to try. I thought the plot and acting were relatively superb to most of its drama counterparts.
Curiosity killed the cat...
But satisfaction brought it back
