    The problem with Korean dramas is that basically they are all the same. Same theme: boy meets girl: they dpn’t like each othet. One is rich and one is poor. Then, they stsrt liling each other but because one os poor, the mean parents of the rich one will not allow them to marry the poor one. I have seen five Korean dramas so far and they are all the same. Oh yes, the women are usually very young ( the younger the better, right?) and the men are pretty. What else is new? It’s a market for young people. That is very discriminating.
    I rather have a movie about a bad boy ( man, actually) who has a rough life and then learns thru his mistakes and changes himself. All these writers have no idea on how to write a good script. They just follow a formula.

    (‘o’) na…ah.. i totally disagree. it’s a classic storyline. most dramas in the world has such, not only korean. besides koreans are artistic and make great stories. i guess you bought those dramas intended for young viewers. try to have copies of other genres. i suggest historical or medical dramas such as queen seun deuk, dongyi, jewel in the palace, jejoongwon, new heart… also try 49 days, memories of bali, the truth… there’s a lot more but i can’t enumerate all. (“,)ran

    agave Says:

    Yes, this type of storyline is common for romantic dramas worldwide, so it’s not just a Korean drama thing.


    If you’ve only watched 5 K-dramas and those were romantic dramas, that’s not enough to conclude that all K-dramas are all alike.

    Also, regarding the age of the female leads, the lead actresses in K-dramas are frequently older than the lead actors, so “the younger the better” doesn’t apply here. That’s a Hollywood attitude that thankfully the K-drama industry doesn’t follow unless necessary. K-dramas seem to be more interested in finding the right actress actress for a role, instead of the youngest actress.


    You’re right to note that things are different outside of romantic K-dramas. To your list of non-romance K-dramas I can list many more that do not have the type of predictable romantic pairings that romantic dramas have. In fact, this predictability is what many fans love about romantic K-dramas because they like knowing who will end up together before the drama ends. Many find watching non-romantic K-dramas nerve-racking because there is no guarantee that their favorites will even be alive by the end.

    Well we all have our own opinions, and we’re entitled to express them. I agree with you, sometimes korea dramas are cliche but that’s within the romantic drama genre. I also agree with ran, you should try other dramas, at least you watched dramas that have a happy endings, I’ve watch some k-dramas with sad endings or sometimes they don’t elaborate what they mean when they end the story. If you like that kind of story try “Baker King”, “Streght Class”, “White Christmas”, “Princess Ja Myung” and of course “JUMONG”, just what ran suggested try Dong Yi that’s one of my favorite.

    Yeah right, try to watch the “My GIRLFRIEND IS A GUMIHO” which is romantic-comedy/fantasy. and FASHION KINg.
    Well, I highly reccomend you to watch the “THE MOON THAT EMBRACES THE SUN”.. which tells the story of the two moon and two sun whom the secret love story of Lee Hwon, a fictional king of Joseon, and Wol, a female shaman starring Kim Soo-hyun and Han Ga-in in the leading roles.. :D This is my favorite Korean Drama EVER!

    Belinda Bell Says:

    Thank you all of you. Since I am stuck at home because I have had my foot broken in a bad car accident, I get to see a lot of movies which I enjoy to do. Lately it has been Korean movies. Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy most of tjem simply because they do get into all these character interactions and they are also funny and sad. It has also made me lose interest in American movies since they are mostly about either doctors, lawyers or policemen. That’s regarding the TV dramas. Otherwise, there are a lot of reality shows which Zi detest. I am currently watching Coffee House which does not impress me so far. It’s confusing, the characters are not too interesting and some are annoying like the girl’s family which makes them one dimensional

  12. 337
    Belinda Bell Says:

    Here Is a list of movies which I found well written:
    Secret garden
    You’re beautiful
    Playful Kiss
    Boys over flowers
    Coffee Prince
    Love Rain
    Any drama with Bi Rain
    Scent of a woman
    A thousand days promise
    A thousand kisses
    Bethoveen virus

    CarolineDL Says:

    “Pasta” is great, very realistic and great acting.
    I actually like “Me Too, Flower” coz it touches on some interesting issues (guilt, trauma, depression).
    “Secret Garden” is good.
    “Personal preference/taste” is fun.
    “Coffee Prince” I like too, the whole gender issue is interesting.

    Matt Says:


    Um, on the subject on what you are expressing, I understand your point-of-view, most of the dramas that do well are targerted at the youth market, but there are many dramas that do get their fair-share of fame, in Korea, China, Japan and worldwide, which aren’t all lovey-dovey, like The King 2hearts, it may seem very romantic, but the romance leads to consequences. I won’t say more…

    ANYWAY, has anyone heard from tvN or any other source that they are going to make another drama in the Oh! Boy Series? They quickly released Shut Up Flower Boy Band, after Flower Boy Ramyun shop, but nothing since… @Admin, would you care to help? Thank you(:
