Is it like the girls duty to be a dead fish during kissing scenes?
Like, even if they want it.They think by closing there eyes it counts?
THE DUDE IS DOING ALL THE WORK.
- Everyone arrives at the same time in the airport
- Leading man is a rich bastard that everyone hates, but suddenly turns into an angel for the love of the Leading woman.
- Leading woman is a strong woman that carries all the suffering of the world on her shoulders. She is poor, her family is gone and she is probably sick.
- If the Leading woman receives a letter during the first episodes, it’s from the government saying she is going to lose her house.
- Leading man’s father dies in the first episode. Someone from his family spends the whole drama trying to steal the Leading man’s fortune. Of course, they are dumb enough to fail.
- Awkward kiss that makes you want to punch the writer on the face. This is not cute. This is not romantic. This is scary!
- Leading man has three friends. That’s the exact amount of friends allowed in the table of the Plastics.
- Samsung Galaxy
- Second-Leading man is a gentleman that everyone loves. His fart smells like roses.
- Second-Leading woman is so evil that Maleficent would invite her for a tea.
- Company, blah, blah, blah, power, blah, blah, blah, investments from China, blah, blah, blah…
- Unrealistic reasons why Leading man and Leading woman can’t stay together. *insert soap opera sad song* “Three generations ago your family stole my family’s goat. We shall never be together in this life.”
- Almost death in the pool.
- The evil family member
- Those super interesting and dense characters that end with no development.
- Filler characters and plots.
- The same song every time the Leading man looks at the Leading woman… “Love is the moment…”
- Someone is always studying art in Paris. Or working in Paris. Or both. Plus: Terrible Photoshop in old photos.
- Lee Minho
- Chase in the fishing market
- Awkward text messages for comedy purposes
- At the end of the drama, the couple has to stay at least one year apart before the happily ever after.
- How can you be pregnant if you guys barely kissed?
- At some point, the Leading woman will be humiliated… if you are a Leading woman, there is no running away from that, and it will probably happen in a cocktail party.
- Childhood traumas and suppressed memories… also known as: Your sister/brother tried to kill you when you were 5.
- Foreigner actors appear in one scene and speak one word. After, they suddenly evaporate.
- Leading man fucks up his professional life (mainly missing out an important meeting or business contract) to save Leading woman’s life.
- Cute kids to easy the heavy drama with some comedy scenes
- Push-pull from episode 2 to episode 15.
- Leading woman pretends to be a boy; Second-Leading man thinks he is gay for comedy, also known as: Prejudice.
- Back hug and piggyback
- High school students in their mid 20’s and 30’s…
- Pulling Leading woman by the wrist without her consent
- Predictable villains
- Characters with a traumatic past that had to mature fast, but still acts like a spoiled child.
- Conclusion: Every kdrama is a Cinderella story
This is my goodbye post to the kdrama fandom. After watching so many korean dramas, I’ve finally realized that I’m tired of them. But I’ll always have in my heart all the happiness they brought to me.
By the way, have you noticed how, in The Heirs, Lee Minho is a college student, but, when he returns to Korea, he goes back to High school?
