30 Day Asian Drama Challenge Set 2 – Day 14
14. Do you watch Asian dramas that have a lot of episodes (ex. 40+)?
Yes, I do. Do I watch them often? No, I don’t. One reason is I’m not a huge fan of sitcoms. There’s nothing wrong with them but they just usually aren’t my cup of tea. I’m also hesitant on daily dramas because there’s a whole of of dragging on of plot points. Since they are over 100 episodes usually, that’s not surprising, but they can also be cheesy with bad acting and the like. I also think there must be a way to do a drama with over a 100 episodes without useless fillers and ragging things out painfully, but I could be wrong.
And the others are historical dramas which tend to have lots of episodes. I’m never quite sure how interested I’ll be in those. Plus…if it involves war…I tend not to be able to get into them and wouldn’t you know there’s usually tons of war and political intrigue, so yeah, I usually won’t watch those. I don’t do military dramas or movies. I also don’t do horror (straight up horror, not comedy horror).
Part of the reason I like Asian dramas is the fact that they are short. That’s why my sister also likes Mexican telenovellas. Kudos for her for being fluent in Spanish. Anywho, yeah. I watch them. Final answer.
