This has so far been a categorically ‘meh’ kdrama year for me. It’s been uncommonly hard to find shows to stick with. Either I loose interest after couple of episodes or they manage to piss me off at some point and get Das Boot. Without my string of jdramas I’d be practically dramaless, ha.
So, a few thoughts on the dramas I have watched recently.
This is going to be VERY jdrama heavy as those are what I’ve been mostly watching recently. With kdramas getting on my nerves, I’ve yet again turned to my list of Japanese shows and found several perfectly catering to my taste. XD I know I’m hard to please when it comes to certain aspects of dramas but on the other hand I don’t need much to make me happy. A decent enough script, characters I can root for, some fun (of the non OTT kind), no convoluted histronics or manufactured angst and a lot of heart – which leaves most kdramas these days out of the contention. Even though the Japanese drama scene isn’t actually much better than it’s Korean conterpart, I’ve still been able to pick up quite a few that fit the bill. Dramas that put a grin on my face or alternately leave me with that ‘warm and fuzzy feeling’, as that is something I seem to need atm.
