[Theme of the Month] Short but sweet
If a regular K-drama is a freshly brewed cup of coffee, I consider the mini drama to be the espresso of dramaland.
Mini dramas tell their stories over a much shorter than usual runtime, but they pack a lot of story and heart over a handful of episodes. Typically, mini dramas have fewer than 5 episodes while your average K-drama has a minimum of 16 episodes. Short but sweet, mini dramas are proof that a good story can be told succinctly. Hymn of Death captured the tragedy and love between its leading couple in just three hours. The bittersweet mini drama Ping Pong Ball was only two episodes long, but it left me with lingering questions on life and relationships. Let’s raise a glass to all the mini dramas that left an impact on us.
