    Are there any k-drama fans on tFS? K-dramas all the rage in Asian communities in the US and in Asia. They're different from American tv in that k-dramas are filmed with a pre-determined amount of episodes, so it doesn't drag on forever.

    Sometimes k-dramas can be rather exaggerated, over-the-top, tear-inducing, cringeworthy soap operas but they're super fun to watch when one suspends their disbelief.

    Currently, I'm addicted to the Korean version of Boys over Flowers: http://www.viikii.net/channels/goto/hanayoridangokversion

    I am a big k-drama fan, particularly because I am trying to Korean and dramas are really helpful in that. I just finished watching 'Love Marriage', with Kim Min Hee :p

    i used to watch k-dramas when i was a pre-teen but got fed up with all the tears and the 'rich hotel emperor's daughter with cancer and the poor shoe shine boy love affair'.
    some are rather good. i find the two korean characters in 'lost' and their story to be quite like a k-drama in itself except americanized. which was quite funny and interesting in concept.
