This took longer today because:
1) Football! Barça won the Champions League! YAY!
2) Every time I tried to search the quotes or images for this post, I ended up having a huge revival of my feelings for the show at hand, I think I need help.
ANYWAY! Here I go. There are no spoilers (or not important spoilers at least) in this post so if anybody comes for recs or finds out now that wants to watch a kdrama and doesn't know where to start, you can use this as a rec post!June 06. maybe
asked: What are your top 5 kdramas?
This selection was difficult to come up with because my relationship with kdramas is complicated. On one hand, I absolutely love watching Korean dramas and they've been my guilty pleasure for years now. On the other, I love to shred them to pieces because often they're SO BAD, so corny and ridiculous. They often linger on boring relationships, have couple dynamics I have to raise three eyebrows at, or go terribly wrong halfway through (when there's not cancer! long lost siblings falling in love! people running over other people with their cars!). You may not believe this but it's actually super hard for me to love-love dramas.
However, when I do love a drama, oh boy, how I love a kdrama when I love it hard! And the thing is, I've been watching kdramas long enough now, and I've watched enough of them, that I do have a handful of kdramas that could make this list (aka, more than 5), so it's been a hard selection, save for three of them who were in right away. In any case, here is my list, in no order other than chronological (as in, which ones I watched first), with pretty gifs and a list of honorable mentions.( OH LORD HERE I COMECollapse )
