30 Day Asian Drama Challenge – Day 6
Another toughy. Seriously. Oh, it’s not like I force myself to watch a lot of dramas I hate, because I don’t. If I don’t like something, I tend not to finish it, but there’s been occasions as well where a great drama turns to carp in the final stretch which can then obliterate it’s place in your heart.
Day 6: Your least favorite Asian Drama?
I’m not sure that there is one particular drama that stands out for me as being my LEAST favorite. We have Kame’s One Pound Gospel that I just couldn’t get through, along with the atrocity that was A Man Called God. And let’s not forget about the popular drama from Singapore—Breakout.
On second thought, maybe I’ll make the arbitrary decision to say Breakout. This was one of the first dramas I watched that made me scream at the TV to give me 30 hours of my life back that I had wasted on this drama. There was some bad acting, some great acting, and just a whole lotta horrible plot that felt incomplete and too jumpy without enough build up and that ENDING!!!!! *sobs*
But then again…there’s the horrible shipwreck of last year’s May Queen. By the end of that series, I was pulling my hair out in frustration. Badly written characters, badly written plot, some horribly cheesy dialogue (only made okay when said by the awesome Kim Jae Won), and the not so great acting of the leading lady… Nope. I think I’ll claim this drama as my least favorite for the moment. Give me a day, I’ll probably change my mind, but for right now, I’ll pick that one.
The ONLY reason I finished that nightmare was because of my resolution NOT to drop dramas that I choose to recap. When I fell in love with the first 9 episodes thanks to Kim Yoo Jung and crew’s acting, I would never imagined the nightmare that would await me as the series drug on…and on…and on…how did it get that extension? How did this drama win an award for it’s script?
The funny thing about May Queen? This evil drama caused my blog to receive the most hits it had ever received—over 4,000 in a single day. Ironic, isn’t it? A drama I loathe and detest is what brings people to my site. Rock on… but then again, I read on another drama blogger’s blog that “we watch so you don’t have to” and I think that is very apt for this drama’s case. I suffered through it so you can read about the shipwreck instead of watching it.
