Dark circles? Sudden change in fashion style? Randomly speaking in Korean language? Then, you certainly are addicted to kdramas. With its increasing popularity in various countries, there is no doubt that South Korean dramas or commonly known as kdramas, has taken the world by storm. And if you’re wondering why you can’t stop watching these kdramas episode after episode. Each episode promised to be the last, because the clock says its past 2 AM. But you still end up sleeping at 4 AM, then here are some of the reasons why:
1. Good-looking casts
Don’t you just love staring at those TV screens with ridiculously attractive oppas? And wish your skin was as creamy and smooth as the leading ladies? Not to mention their beauty and fashion goals.
2. The kilig factor
Kdramas are experts when it comes to building up that kilig among their characters that makes you scream and roll over your bed, without being over the top. One thing I love about them is their being conservative.
3. The format
Most kdramas have 16 episodes, each having more or less than an hour, which for me is perfect. Not too long, but not too short either. You can even finish a kdrama in a day. That’s why kdrama fans mostly do binge watching.
You learn about the Korean culture without even studying, like taking off your shoes before entering the house, the importance of hierarchy in their country, etc.
5. Killer soundtracks
When people say that I am a kpop fan, I immediately correct them by saying that I’m a kdrama fan, that there’s a difference between the two. However, you can’t ignore those amazing songs in kdramas. The Korean singers or idol as how they call them in their country, is just as talented. So you end up singing their songs not caring if you got the lyrics right or end up playing them on repeat.
People have different interests when it comes to watching TV series. But, in kdramas there is something for everyone, be it a medical drama, fantasy, historical, action-mystery thriller, romantic comedy, or heavy drama. The possibilities are endless.
7. 24/7 Accessibility
In this millennial generation where gadgets becomes a basic need, you can watch kdramas anytime and anywhere. After you click on one episode, you’ll soon be onto the next and the next and the one after that…until you realize that you’ve finished 20 episodes in one day.
No kdrama is complete without the immersion of a moral lesson to the viewers. That goes to all TV series and movies, as well. The important thing is that they continue to become an inspiration to the people who have watched them.
