For those who are looking for recommendations, I listed my my favorite dramas of all time— handy for this quarantine season! As a busy grad student who only have time to catch up on recent dramas during this (unfortunate) break, I would like to ask for your top 20 (or so) list?

You should defo give "Black Dog" a chance. It's a slice of life from teacher's life! And I really love it.
From the currently airing I am enjoying "hospital playlist"( the same creators as prison playbook), "hi bye mama" and "I'll go to you when the weather is nice".
From last year "Be Melodramatic" was AMAZING. Also my other faves from 2019 are "At eighteen", "Search WWW" and "secret boutique"!

Thank you for the recommendations, @bluewaters20 and I hope you are safe at home!

I am currently watching Hospital Playlist for the actors and writer-director combo! The female lead is new to me but Jo Jung Suk and Jung Kyung Ho hold a special place in my heart <3

Also currently watching Hi, Bye Mama and crying every week because of it! This is the first time I watched Kim Tae Hee in anything and I'm liking her character so much. I am also loving Lee Kyu Hyung, my Han Yangie from Prison Playbook.

I started with the first episode of Weather, but I am not feeling it (yet?) despite Lee Jae Wook being there.

Be Melodramatic is also one of my favorites (enough to finish it in one weekend) as it gave me Age of Youth vibes.

At Eighteen was sweet and I loved the OSTs there. It was also a discovery of Kim Hyang Gi for me, as it was the first time I saw her in kdramas.

Search WWW is where I discovered Lee Jae Wook's charm and range so when Extraordinary You came out, I loved him even more than I loved Rowoon! (Especially with the making videos)

I have to check out Secret Boutique and Black Dog!

What a long list!

I would recommand :

-Bad guys : I really liked the first season. I think it was the last role Park Hae Jin I liked.

Cheese in a trap : Kim Go Eun was really great!

Heartless city : One of my favourite!

Hospital ship : I really liked the fact the story didn't happen in Seoul. The islands looked beautiful.

Live : I loved Bae Sung Woo in this role. It was a pretty realistic story.

Mad dog : It's like Task Force 38, a nice crew against villains.

Mr. sunshine : A beautiful drama but sad.

One spring night and Something in the rain : I love the both dramas. The same ambiance but with different characters.

Thank your @kurama! I started on Live a while back but I put it on hold as I wasn't feeling watching something of that genre at that time. I added it on my list on Netflix recently, though!

P.S. Do all of these have nice endings? It doesn't have to be perfect, but it should be nice enough not to ruin the entire drama LOL

I dropped Misaeng a while back but I picked it up again a few days ago. I am currently at episode 9 and I don't understand why it took a long time before Kang Ha Neul had his first lead role.

I also loved I'm not a Robot with two leads who are cute individually and together!

Just Between Lovers was a delight to watch although I haven't seen the female lead in anything after that drama.

I shall check out One Spring Night, Possessed, and Let's Eat!

I would watch Tale of Nokdu, but I don't do sageuk (sorry!)

May I ask how come Love Alarm is your top drama when it's not finished yet? (Don't get me wrong, I love that series, but My First First Love broke my heart when the second season ruined my OTP! I'm still mad @Netflix)

I agree wholeheartedly with why it took so long before Kang Ha Neul had his first lear role. I loved him in every drama or movie I've seen.
I know Love Alarm isn't finished, but I thought this drama set-up was really well done and interesting + Kim So Hyun is one of my fav so I hope the second season (or part B of the show I don't even know how to call it) will be as good for me as the 1st one !

Agreed. I hope Netflix releases season 2 ASAP!

My Ahjusshi and Nine are my top-2 kdrama of all time, rounding into top-3: Misaeng. Other than these 3, my list is quite flexible (:
I see some of my certain faves already there in your list: W, Liar Game, and School 2013. My recommendation would also come to these fellows:
- office drama: I hate going to work
- melo: On the way to the airport
- foodiecomedy: Let's Eat (season 1)

as for your Bingo List, what I've watched and really really like are:
- Chocolate, wtf moment in the hospital politic/family feud, and the romance took time and can be slow, but the 'realization moment' scene of the male lead is one of the best acting (and feelinggg) I've seen in recent offering of kdrama, like it a lot for the ML and FL + char development of supporting cast

- Misty: intense ep 1, and you can't turn your eyes off the 'mystery', but be ready for 'smh' for the last 10mnt of final ep (:

- Designated Survivor: I don't watch the american show, but this korea adaptation's first ep didn't grab my attention, it was meh, but I kept going because of Ji Jin Hee, and after ep 3 the story really took off, and I enjoy the ride. ps: there's certain secretary that steal the show.

hope my mumbling helps :)
happy watching!

As mentioned in my comment to @frenchmarmot, I am currently watching your top 3 favorite, Misaeng, after it having been in the dropped list for years. (I am sorry!) I am liking it now though— I think it's because I now have a job and I can relate to the situation more.

It is the first time I am hearing of I hate going to work; I should check that out.

On the way to the airport has been on my list since 2016 after the rave about its cinematography. I shall move up its rank in the queue list.

Same with Let's Eat. It's been on my list for so long! I'll get to it this quarantine period.

Thank you for your comments on Chocolate, Misty, and Designated Survivor! I will keep them in mind in choosing the next drama to watch.

Hope you're safe at home!

I will mention Two Weeks again because I don't normally watch dramas more than once, but that one I watched at least twice. It was really intense. The male lead, though not one of my favorites, is very popular with a lot of people.

Of the ones you haven’t seen yet, I guess it just depends on your mood. Bridal Mask and especially Mr. Sunshine being rather heavy. Nokdu is a very accessible historical romance for those who want something a bit lighter. Faith is old school epic fantasy romance time travel Historical. Marriage is a fun, sharp RomCom.

Last couple of episodes of Master’s sun are messed up! I loved the premise of the drama and I thought the first 10-12 episodes were fun :)
It was my first Hong sisters drama, then I checked out almost everything they wrote barring Big.
I have seen a couple of wakikki episodes and they are laugh out aloud types. Somehow I keep pausing and the series is never completed.

I agree, there are too many good dramas! Personally, I think 2020 is shaping up to be a good drama year like 2016.

I noticed that there's a lot of Gong Hyo Jin with Jealousy Incarnate, The Producers, and When the Camellia Blooms at the top of your list.

I haven't watched One Spring Night, Beautiful Gong Shim, Familiar Wife, Goong, Iljimae, Mask, and My Fellow Citizens yet. I should check them out.

I’ve only seen one thing from your bingo list all the way through - Vagabond. If you don’t like open endings it will make you want to throw things, but otherwise I found it really fun.

Hi!

Thanks for collating this list. This helps :)
I really liked a lot of chocolate (but not all of it) and I love One spring night (but not the end), hotel del Luna isn’t bad either :)
An old (and under-rated) one heart to heart. I think beautiful gong shim (really funny in the beginning, a bit tedious for me when it went away from the heroine) and protect the boss were fun.
I saw something in the rain because I like the director’s visualization. It was fun with realistic characters but the end was just too rushed and I will always have issues with it.
Suspicious partners was entertaining too.
I actually like cheese in the trap (the drama). I want to see watcher, different dreams and guardian (I just like what I have heard about them).
One j drama that just ended but really made me happy (and almost die of sugar overdose and cuteness) was love lasts forever. It is available with English subs and if u want something light hearted... u will love it.
I can go on and on about Tendo sensai! So much eye candy.
Hope this helps.

Awesome... do let me know how did it go.

Someone in chocolate Comments section had suggested kimchi family.
I loved a jdrama: Tokyo diners and sometimes watch the korean version of it.
Oh and I like park bo gum in Encounter.
Haven’t seen Reply series but mostly people say that it is good. Also, miss hanabi (I didn’t get that spelling right) is nice. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.
Still 17 is nice coz of the actors.
I didn’t like heirs but I did see it and loved laughing at how ridiculous it was.
When I have time I want to check lawless lawyer, mal-mo-e (the film), poongsan, road no. 1, remember, mad dogs, miseang, punch.
Shining inheritance is good with an FF button but I liked the ml and fl (most of the time).
Listen to my heart is nice, sort of but melo and I did FF parts. Good manager is funny but I didn’t like it as much as people said I would. I liked some of the KBS two hours specials as short stories. I will see Dazzling when I have emotional energy as I love the clips on youtube. I like Kings 2 hearts a lot because of a strong female lead.

Oh but tendo sensai who I spoke about in the previous comment is a must! It is a tested formula but lord that man and the cuteness of the young nurse - simple and upfront, a series worth Each moment of less then 9 hours You spend watching it (and I keep rewatching parts Of this and goblin and Kim back Joo when I am low thinking about corona). Then again if you don’t like simple romances then am not sure but if u like eye candy nothing like Takeru Sato being grumpy and then changing but by bit.

Hi Beanies, I hope everyone is safe! I feel like I’m living in a a dystopian novel... everything seems so unreal.

To avoid Coronavirus spreading Czechia has been under quarantine since 15th of March. Czech borders are closed, the airports are closed. All the bars, restaurants, bookstores, cinemas, beauty salons, municipalities, and whichever shops you can think of are closed. The only shops that are still open are the grocery shops, drugstores and pharmacies. We are not allowed to go outside except for going to work or to buy necessities and even then you can be checked by the police.

Czechia is in the official state of emergency and that means jail time for anyone who purposely breaks the quarantine.

Face masks and respirators are mandatory in all public spaces. You won’t be allowed into any shops without a face mask and you could be fined if police sees you without a mask in the streets.

The problem is there’s a shortage of mask and respirators even for hospitals and public officers. So people started sewing DIY cotton masks to donate to the hospitals and elderly people who need them most.

I wonder how long this will go on. But I’m praying all those precautions will prevent Czechia from ending up line Italy where nearly 500 people died in a single day.

Here in the U.S. things are getting tight. My state, Washington, is at this point the hardest hit in regards to deaths. I haven't seen another human being in over 15 days--just me and my cat. I will have to go get some groceries next week, and have my entire trip well planned to reduce the chance of infection. We are allowed to go to grocery stores, and since I live in a rural area the nearest grocery is 17 miles away, delivery of food is out--so going in person is my only option. Hope this starts ending soon, but in the U.S. it looks like it will be several more weeks.

I hope and pray you are all safe and sound, and safely tucked into little nests during this cataclysm. We are doing our best here; we appreciate the hard-earned recommendations and advice from those before us, and we hope that we can be as graceful under pressure.

Right now we are finding joy in little things- our traffic has decreased immensely so we now hear the birds, neighbors are reconnecting (at a socially appropriate distance!) and life seems to be simpler. We are together, and that is priceless.

Take care💋

How about compiling short videos from his coworkers? You could be in charge and help everyone do this (remotely of course) and compile them and post them on YouTube or somewhere private if you have that available. It would be something your coworker would have forever and perhaps you could get someone from his family to video his reaction to watching his coworkers gush over him and say their goodbyes. Just a thought.

Hi beanies,

hope everyone is safe and healthy,
I was supposed to be on 'work from home' last Monday, but I felt okay to come to office for this week since it was almost empty (no problem for social distancing), and there's temp check, sufficient hand sanit too. However, the office would be just closed starting tonight so I'll just officially start my WFH this coming monday through to 1st week of April,,hope the situation is getting better for everyone, everywhere.

so, like everyone else kdrama watchers these days, i too was busy to find kdrama to watch during this #stayingathome time, and I'm glad I was interested to watch Colour of Woman (2012). It has 20 ep, coming from Channel A, and the first 2 ep i've watched have the vibe of show i need during this challenging time: intellegent female and male lead, likeable second leads, relatable issues facing by women (and men) of different char at work and personal level, and it has the right amount of comedy without feeling ott.
after that first 2 ep I searched DB to look for any article on this show, and how delightful it was to find @javabeans ' recap/impression of exactly first 2 eps :) it was such a good time for me reading it, and the comments of readers, aw the oldie but goodie DB ;), now I'm looking fwd to watch the rest 18 eps during any 'break' from work at home kekeke..

stay strong beanies!

To my fellow citizens who I see at the local grocery stores, while I also wish you health and safety, I also wish you would stop your disgraceful and shameful behavior. It's a travesty that bad manners are seemingly embraced by so many people.

Since this is an open thread, I want to talk about a software that is doing a promotion to support the creative community during the pandemic. This is some software that I use and am thrilled to have available. The company has been around a long time and used to be called Serif but the software is called Affinity. They are based in the UK. Most people will be interested in Affinity Photo which honest and truly, give Adobe's Photoshop a run for it's money. There is also Affinity Designer and Affinity Publisher. Many people (myself included) prefer Affinity, except Affinity Photo might be slightly more difficult to learn. There is also a version for iPad that won the app of the year award. Anyway, unlike Adobe that charges per month, you just buy Affinity software once and it is yours. Right now it is being sold for $24.95 US dollars which is half of the usual cost of $49.95. I have no connection whatsoever with Affinity or Serif except that I love their software and have for years. I just wanted to give this information to people who might be interested because I have never seen the price this low. They are also offering 90 days free trial of their software and have vowed to hire 100 freelance creatives during this time of pandemic in support of the creative community. Anyway, if you are interested just type Affinity software into your browser and I am sure you will easily find their web site.

lol yesterday downloaded it know whether it deserve the investment or not and i have to say i still prefer old photoshop. cheap and reliable. Photoshop is far better if you want to invest your time learning the skills. Affinity products cater more to the needs of novice

Oh no, you are wrong about that Cat-0-Cat. Take a look at some of the tutorials on YouTube showing what all Affinity Photo can do. This is not at all for the novice. I can tell you exactly what photo editing software is for the novice and this is not it. I am an arts teacher and teach photo editing as well as many other arts and design courses to high school students. Believe me, Affinity Photo is not for the novice. Photoshop diehards will always love Photoshop best of all, and it remains the industry standard. But, you know how it is with industry standards. Even when something better comes along it takes a long time before people are willing to open up to it. One little thing that Affinity Photo does that Photoshop doesn't is when rotating a photo(such as with a tilted horizon), it will do inpainting rather than requiring a crop, which is very cool. Of course, maybe by now Photoshop also does that. Affinity Photo has live brush previews. You can save your undo history even after closing if you want. Also, the personas are pretty cool.

That's my initial impression after checking its various tools. I mostly use Paint.net and sometimes gimp. But when it comes to work photoshop was my 1st choice.
When i talked about it being easier for a novice i meant for inbuilt effects mostly similar as photoshop actions.
I've seen videos of affinity photo and i like it for what it is and i was easy to navigate as i found it very similar to photoshop. affinity tried to market those features not visible in photoshop and that's good business tactic but the vast repository Photoshop has makes it way ahead.

Novice = have basic understanding of photo editor products and have some experience with layers.

Sorry I just cannot agree. Now Gimp is definitely for the novice and I've not used Paint.net but would guess that to be for the novice as well. Gimp, being free, is an easy one to use for teaching kids as they don't have to invest any money and it does start them learning with the basics. Over the years, Gimp has even gotten to the point where it can do some more sophisticated things. But it is nowhere close to Affinity or PhotoShop or even Corel PaintShop Pro. Affinity Photo is way beyond basic understanding of photo editing. Here is an example of something Affinity Photo can do that is similar to what the artist Erik Johansson does. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=pOBtq484XUQ&feature=emb_logo Just put Erik Johansson's name in the browser and see what incredible photography (and editing) he does. Sorry. I get passionate about this stuff. :-) By the way Affinity doesn't really market itself for the things it can do that Photoshop can't do. It is just people like me that hunt for those things and put them out there. Affinity markets itself for those things that it can do and how well they can be done.

Hi everyone! Please stay safe!

Those of you who read webtoons that dramas are based on, do you'll prefer reading them before or after the drama premieres?
I think I would prefer to watch them after just to not spoil the drama watching experience. Ooh or maybe it would be fun to go episode wise!
There are quite a few dramas coming up based on webtoons!

I'm also isolating at home. It's all about the little things in life now. Like being able to sit back and read my favorite book, or talking with my mom endlessly, or cooking my favorite mac & cheese recipe, or bothering my kitty all day until he gives me the glare, or just catching up on kdramas. Stay healthy everyone!

Also, I'm in a mood to recommend Gaksital! If you haven't watched it, do it now! It's such an amazing drama and it keeps you on edge till the end. I have never bawled my eyes out for a drama as much as I did for Gaksital. *sigh* Is it just me or has the kdrama world stopped delivering such epic stories?

Hi beanies. It's currently exam season in India and all the major exams that were taking place have been postponed indefinitely. I was lucky enough that all my papers were over before coronavirus spread this rapidly. A few of my friends are stuck in a limbo because they had only one or two papers left. It's pretty annoying for them because they can't even enjoy themselves properly because they know they have a board paper to give. This is also going to seriously impact our college applications and results. I sincerely pray for everyone's betterment.

Happy weekend Beanies!
Because even in Corona times, we must try to keep structure in our lives. 🙂

This week was my first and also my last (for now) on the job. The whole hospital ward is technically unemployed as a result of the Corona crisis, so as an extern I am the first to go. There are, however a few silver linings:

1.) Lots of colleagues deem it possible for me to return as soon as work picks up again. Maybe not necessarily in their ward, maybe not permanently, or at all, but they sound a lot more convinced than I do, so I guess that is a good sign?

2.) Not looking for another job is not as frowned upon in these circumstances. I have a mental list of creative projects, books, movies and K-drama’s I want to tackle. Rather than hope or say that I will be able to do those things, I want to actually lazily plop down on my sofa and just do those things, and just postpone my to do list once in a while for a bit, because that thing never shortens anyway. 😆

3.) I am used to being unemployed and indoors (because going outside costs a lot of money if you are unemployed) and unhappy about this, so it does not affect me as much. I am also very tolerant when things happen in the name of Corona prevention.

On that note, I got pissed off very often this week. One of my few berserk buttons is people hurting others on purpose or as a result of negligence. The amount of times I have seen people blatantly disrespecting, mocking or ignoring the social distance rule this week should make me a bingo champion.😠 I am aware that we are facing some rough months, but they are a bleep compared to the many years we all could live longer and corona free afterwards if we just bothered to take this seriously. So far no good. 😠

Another thing that bothers me are the people who used to give me hell for being unemployed, complaining about being economically unemployed and bored and having literally nowhere to go to. I find it hard to sympathize with you since you are not the only one in this situation and you did not bother to show me the same amount of sympathy when I needed it. In the same vein, people with anxiety are ‘downplaying’ corona to call out the people who downplay their anxiety.

Fortunately beanies, a special kind of good human beings, exist. 😉 People in my country are also hanging white cloths outside windows to show appreciation for healthcare workers. My parents, usually not very vocal about their support, even joined in and hung an old white pillow case from my window room, since I was a health worker for a week. 🥰

I love to hermit. Love it. Besides working and I love my job so that is something I'll probably miss more and more. I've had people comment that this most be made for me and they need to be like me to get through all this social distancing.
BUT and a huge one. Though I'm doing fine I have some major chafing because it is not a choice anymore. Like walking down to the local coffee shop and then library on a beautiful spring morning. Or just running into the store because I have a craving without concerns for mine or others health.

Anyway, just a ramble to say be prepared for any emotions that might come up. I also think it sounds like your co workers were really impressed by you and you should take that as a good sign.

I am also hearing people finding it hard to quarantine whereas I joke that I have been self quarantined for almost 2 years now hah, that's what unemployment does to you.

Yes, it was heartwarming, especially since I just came home from my last day of work, and that is always a weird kind of day. Even more conflicting because I am relieved to be safe at home from now on.

I'm home for a month. Um, maybe be careful what I wish for in the future, lol. I used to have time off in the summer but because of changes we lost that and we ( co workers and I) would complain about not having that time off and now we have all this time.
I work with very young children and staff have thought for awhile now that some of our exclusions around illness have gotten to lenient and I now wonder how some of those policies will change in the future.
Also, though I'm not a political junkie, curious as to how this will effect the coming elections here in the States.

I have a TON of dramas I want to catch up with and decided to start with When the Weather is Nice. And then I think onto Hi Bye Mama.
I only just finished the second ep and not sure how this thing with the ex best friend will shake out but all ready do not think it is a good portent that she interrupted our leads rainy morning coffee flirting. Not cool.

I've been watching the 2gether series and found someone doing a translation of the novel since we are all at home now and have been reading that.
Also have my download of Heavens Official Blessing to maybe finally get to.
Other books in my stack are the last two Mercy Thompson books and (mostly YA or romance)
The Austen Playbook
Castle in the Clouds
Love Boat, Taipei
Love and Gelato
Under the Sardinian Sky
The Bookish Life of Nina Hill
Strange the Dreamer
The House in the Cerulean Sea
Polaris Rising
I Love You So Mochi
Love From A to Z

I feel like some armchair travels and nothing too dark right now. I wonder how many I can knock out before back to work.

Hello Everyone,

As of now, California is on the lockdown. Only go out for essential stuff. I am really sad as I can not see my grandmother. She have move to another hospital. According to my mom, my mom called the nurse three times a day to see how my grandmother aka her mom are doing. There is no visitors allowed at all. My mom is officially not working at Lens Crafter at the Westminster Mall. They have close it until March 31.

My boys are doing distance learning since yesterday and they love it. No more wearing uniforms and be comfortable at home. Also, eat at home too. 🤦🏻‍♀️😑 As for my youngest daughter, it is really hard as she relay on routine, and schedule. Luckily, her aba therapist be there to help her. I have some worksheets I got from the teacher by email and seesaw app too.

I am sad that my oldest son NYC/Washington got canceled. Also, freshman orientation of high school too. We are afraid that his eighth grade graduation will be cancelled. Also, with my cousin who is in same grade as him. I am hoping we will do something in the future for oldest son.

Please stay dry and be healthy!!!

P.S. Hubby is still working as he is usually by himself in the building. His boss is in another building.

Hi all! Could I get some drama recommendations based on these dramas i liked?
Currently watching I'll find you on a beautiful day (slower than what I'm used to but still holding my attention) and hospital playlist (only 1 ep per week T-T).

Dramas I liked (that came to mind):
Queen of seven days
Goblin
Extraordinary you
Romance is an open book
Hotel del Luna
Queen inhyun's man
While you were sleeping
Live
Misaeng
School 2017

I haven't watched Queen of seven days so I can't say anything about that.

For Goblin, I recommend that you watch Touch of your heart for the second leads, and Chicago Typewriter for the fantasy romance.

For Extraordinary you, I recommend W. Both have two worlds with characters being self-aware.

For Romance is an open book, I again recommend Chicago Typewriter with a novel writer as its main lead.

For Hotel del Luna, I recommend Lets Fight Ghost and Master Sun for the ghost element. I also recommend Hi, Bye Mama although it's still currently airing.

For Queen Inhyun's Man, I recommend Nine and W (again). All three have the same writer and genre (fantasy romance).

For While you were sleeping, I recommend I Hear your Voice (one of my all-time favorites) and Pinocchio. Both are fight-the-system kind of drama with justice and principles at their core.

I am currently watching Misaeng, while Live is on my list.

I haven't watched School 2017 yet. School 2013, however, is one of my favorite dramas although I don't think they share a genre. There's no romance in 2013.

Hi, Beanies!

I don't even know how long it's been since I last posted in an OT, but I suddenly felt like it today. I wanted to offer a little bit of encouragement to anyone who might be in need of some positivity right now.

Last July, I posted on the fan wall about how directionless I was feeling, having just moved back halfway across the world to my parents' home, with no car or job. But some time has passed since then, so here are some great things that have happened during that time:

1. I finally saw DAY6 live! I also posted on the fan wall about this one. It was just as magical as I'd imagined.

2. I now have TWO jobs, both of which I love! One is at a local tutoring center, and the other is freelance.

3. After more than half a year of not really watching many dramas (or at least not finishing them...) I'm back! Nobody Knows is everything. And Hospital Playlist is hitting all the right buttons, too.

4. I'm getting sucked into a new kpop group! After listening to ATEEZ casually for a few months, I finally took the plunge and have spent the past 2-3 days watching everything I can. Don't get me wrong, no one will ever unseat DAY6 from their place as #1 in my heart, but it's super fun being in that honeymoon stage again -- learning everyone's names, getting used to the group dynamics, having wayy more content than I know what to do with, etc., etc. Any ATINYs here who want to help with my induction?

I had a kind of a reverse epiphany yesterday. Well it was an epiphany just a low-key and kind of depressed one. A 2020 epiphany, which went something like, "everything is horrible and I don't want to be doing any of it".

So I went to the Doctor and talked about my health problems and came up with a plan. Then I told her that I was at my limit with the world generally because of my bowels and my ovaries and Covid and my parents and study and work.
So she gave me a few days off work and then I came home and withdrew from the subject I was studying at Uni. So now I have four days, enough food for a month, and no study to do.

And so I am off my kind of weird semi-hiatus! Still not watching any Korean dramas though but will be picking some up soon. Probably.

For this lockdown/quarantine period, maybe instead of watching the best dramas you should instead do a watch of the worst. And by The Worst, I mean dramas that aren't good until the ending ruins it (Misty! Big! Black!). I mean dramas that are pure trash from scene one.

If you want to do a watch of the Worst Dramas, here's a list to start. They're not ranked.

Abyss
About Time
Bride of the Century
Devilish Joy
Forest
Melting Me Softly
Risky Romance (I'm embarrassed, I actually enjoyed it)

Any others?
