[Drama Chat] That drama you hate-watched all the way through


I don’t normally fall into the hate-watch category, because more often than not, disliking a drama (ahem, Record of Youth) makes me want to shut it off and run for the hills — not torment myself all the way through, painful minute by excruciating second.

On the other hand, there are definitely those times when you dislike a drama so much you can’t stop watching. And it’s not because the drama is a glorious train wreck (which is another kind of drama watching entirely) — it’s because the drama is just a straight-up train wreck. It’s not fun, watching it is not fun, seeing good talent go to waste is not fun, and being annoyed for two hours every week is not fun. And yet, hate-watching was kinda fun?
 

What’s the drama you hate-watched all the way through?

 
Let the chatting begin!

I had to break my "silent reader" theme I was rolling with to completely agree with you, BP was a complete waste of my time. I am never gonna get back those 12hours of my life I wasted on this dumpster fire.

When they announced it would be 12eps long, I knew from then it was not going to go well. They had such an amazing cast (except TM #notmytaemu sorry) but it was too boring and rushed. like WHAT was with that awful roadside proposal for the second leads? (if my s/o did that to me I'd reject him no matter how much I love him.) and how could they make grandpa so unlovable? (i was so so excited to see him) the whole hari+minwoo was so tough to watch too girlie was clearly still hung up on him.
the webtoon had more depth than this, it should've remained a webtoon imho.

this is just my opinion, everyone is entitled to their own opinions so other people may like what others dont! I just had to get this off my chest 😅😅

King Maker: The Change of Destiny, and Royal Gambler. Both had me in for the same reasons - it's a saguek and it's political. Both ended up being one step forward and several back. I ended up watching both to the end, with the aid of the fast-forward button of course :) . At the end of the watch, the delete button was waiting speedily for a job.

Ah! Another that doesn't count cause I didn't watch the last two episodes would be Penthouse 3 specifically. By ep 11 I couldn't take it anymore, I quitted. Again, I don't know if this counts.

Honorable mention goes to Personal Taste. Perhaps it's because I watched this 3 years ago so its probably an unfair choice.

I don't think I've had a drama that I've hate-watched to the end; I tend to drop them if they annoy me that much. I'm not going to waste my time. That being said, there were 2 dramas that I watched years ago that I watched to the end in spite of certain aspects that I hated.

Mary Stayed Out All Night: absolutely despised the sorry you-know-what dad. Worst dad I've ever seen in a rom-com. Only stayed because I really did like the main couple.

Full House: the constant shouting annoyed me to no end, and I couldn't believe the main girl stayed friends with the idiots who sold her house out from under her (never mind that such a scenario is completely implausible). The only reason I finished it was because it ranked so high in everyone's "must-see classic Kdrama" list.

Bonus - Full House 2. The drama that never should've been made.

Since I have a real hard time dropping dramas (and dnf-ing books), I have hate-watched far too many dramas.

The first drama I hated but watched until the very end was My Girl.
I actually avoided Lee Joongi’s dramas for a long time afterwards. I eventually forgiven him because he’s one of my favs now.

The other worst offenders were:

Royal Gambler(Daebak)
The only time I have high blood pressure is when I am reminded of this drama.

Orange Marmalade
I remember the exact moment this drama went off the rails but I couldn’t look away…

Padam Padam
This drama just pissed me off.

Playful Kiss
HATED THIS…but I absolutely loved the other Itazura na kiss adaptations I saw. I think I just really disliked the main actor. He was terrible.

Doom at your service
After this one, I made a promise to myself to no longer waste my time on dramas I didn’t enjoy.

The first drama I ever dropped (and I suffered through 17/20 episodes before FINALLY calling it quits) was Level 7 Civil Servant or whatever it was called.
The 7 represents the collective IQ of all its characters.

Alice: How the writer opt for Son-mom romance over parental love and family reunion is beyond me

Return: Drama behind drama. Over the top makjang and villains. After this drama, I refuse to watch other drama about more chaebol doing superficial nasty things (Skycastle, Penthouse, whatever, not interested)

When My Love Blooms: Lee Bo-young should never do romance drama ever again. Stalkerish and selfish ML.

When I was the most beautiful: ML is pinning over your brother wife for years... you should know time to let thing go and never look back

Police University

I totally forever hate watching this Kdrama after episode 12 because this Kdrama was absolutely first-ever worst Kdrama that I watched but ended incompletely. That means no need for me to go back to episode one anymore. Poorest editing and messiest cinematography. Worst BGM and even all of the OSTs are all flops. The performances of all of our cast except Cha Tae-hyun was totally forgotten due to mediocre acting and for me, I blame that this Kdrama was totally such a massive failure after episode 12 worst-ever cliffhanger and even the whole damned episode 12. After I heard someone said that Professor Yoo will be kill and this Kdrama was entirely no longer a comedic and hilarious Kdrama, I completely dropped this Kdrama. I am so completely disappointed that this Kdrama was one of the Chuseok pre-emption victims. I knew that Police University was either sometimes an underrated, sometimes a lackluster and sometimes a flop. So it left me an completely unfinished Kdrama I watched that later went on forever hating this Kdrama. ...And then the barcode baddie killed me after episode 12.

Sad to say, I hate-watch for the bean, so I don't drop even when I should, which means I have a lot of hate-watched dramas: Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food, Itaewon Class, Her Private Life, Tale of Nokdu, Do You Like Brahms?, Lovestruck in the City, Dali and Cocky Prince...

@panshel Oh no sounds like you go way beyond the call of duty and you need a special mention for enduring for the sake of the beanies! I hope you explained why the series sucked as you recapped! I noticed other series were dropped part way through the recap process so maybe it’s about giving yourself permission to drop them if they drive you mad.

Pretty Noona who buys me food, had the worst two over played OST songs that didn’t even go with the storyline so not sure how they got through quality control Save the last dance for me and Stand by your man just hearing those two songs got me annoyed.

The only one of the list I enjoyed was Do you like Brahms. I definitely hate watched Her private Life the others I don’t think I watched the full first episode!

I will say this as someone who has watched Pretty Noona a good 10 times too many.....those songs in the post Stand by Your Man and Save the Last Dance DO fit the storyline if you listen to the lyrics. One of my many rewatched involved listening to those stupid songs and trying to figure out why this decision was made...it fits. Save the last dance is the flirty, falling in love portion and Stand by Your Man is the beginning of the end of the relationship. Id have to watch it again to explain in more detail why its a good fit. It's annoying and they could have found more than those two songs but even that decision was deliberate, I think. To show that Jin-A falls into patterns. I've over thought this drama tona ridiculous degree. It's a love and a favorite and a hate watch all rolled into one.

Thanks for offering another perspective on the songs it was really helpful. It was the tone of the songs and the timing when you hear them. It was such a contrast to the feel of the other songs.

When he says he loves her during that phone call and the Something in the rain song starts to play you literally feel the power of his words and their impact on her as that long silence continues. Then every time she goes to him at night and the La La La song plays it is literally the vocals to what we are seeing played out. Then in sharp contrast the Country and Western style songs come in they just seem loud and jarring with whatever is on the screen.

I see this drama in three parts the lovely spring like joy and energy of new love which leads her to become young and happy. The middle part is the barren wasteland of the sexism in work, their break up and her later relationship with the ridiculous boyfriend who has no time or interest in her because he is married to the job. The final part is the wake up and reclaim her life phase where she moves to be with her friend and he eventually finds her and their love is rekindled.

I loved the first part but found the rest frustrating and disappointing as he loved her so much and demonstrated this in so many ways. He brought out the best in her.

I have long thought that this drama was never meant to be a traditional rom-com. Actually, it kind of reminds me of The Sound of Magic, in a way. The Magician was there as a catalyst, right, to shake up Ah-Yi and Il-Deung and bring hope and dreams and wonder to their lives. A rom-com is about the couple but this drama was about Jin-A. Oh I'm blanking on his name but Jae-ins character was Jin-As catalyst. He woke her up. She was in her repeating pattern of going to work, she had the awful boyfriend who was cheating on her and dumped be46. She was going through the motions. From her very first interaction with Jae-ins character he WOKE HER UP. And, like you said, brought out the best in her. He gave her the courage to try and shake things up instead of just accept them.. she stood up to her bosses and her parents and her friend. He gave her a strength that she didn't know that she had but then ...he wanted to runaway. He didn't want to fight --something that she could only fathom because of him--and by leaving he took it away. She didn't know how to stand on her own which is why when he came back she's not fighting the sexism and toxicity in her work anymore, she's back with a guy who doesn't love or appreciate her. And she's back to being deeply unhappy--but even moreso now because she doesn't even have her best friend anymore..that relationship was ruined when she fell in love with Jae-ins character.
I'm going to rewatch it. Only the first 8 though as I can't stand the middle and end but when you watch and listen to the lyrics Stand by Your Man really is Jin-As song about her relationship with everyone and everything, really. It's unhealthy. In the song the part they play the most is,
"you'll (either you singular or plural depending on the scene) have your hard times.and he'll have his good times doing things you don't understand. But if you love him be proud of him. After all he's just a man"

And I think that plays into the fact that he was more than "just a man" to her. He was her hope and her wakeup call. But he was also doing things that she didn't understand --wanting to runaway instead of fighting (what he encouraged her to do), wanting to stand in front of her instead of letting her stand in front of him. I think even the decision to use the country version of those song (I'm sure they could have found a different version or rerecorded it or something) was a way to show how different he was in her life and how at first it's a good thing and then as their relationship progresses it's a not so good thing. For my part the very first time I watched this drama and heard that song I was a little swoony with it. It took watching the drama several times to even notice the connection between the lyrics and the relationships because it was SO ANNOYING. But now every time I watch I connect with it a little more.
It's still the world's most annoying ost though
And at this point I am no longer sure I made a lick...

1

Of sense and as usual when it comes to this dang drama I talk too much! I can't help it,! It's a legit problem in my day to day life.

1

I agree that he wanted to run to the States rather than fight but he had done a lot of fighting already and it didn’t work. He beat up the boyfriend and she still got in the car with him over a mobile phone contract that could have been sorted out by just buying another phone. The contract was in his name her cancelling the payment she was making would have been fine as he would have had to take it back on.
He fought with her about going on the blind date she went which was disrespectful to the man who was on the date and her boyfriend.
He tolerated the horrendous comments from her mum and the physical beating even when she came and contaminated his home with her prejudiced, derogatory toxic statements so he could reduce the pain to his girlfriend and she returned to his house and therefore experienced the pain he was trying to protect her from.

So it made perfect sense to move away so she would not feel the loss of her friend or fight a system she was never going to win in terms of the workplace harassment and disrespect.

I saw it as starting from a clean slate and returning when she was stronger and healed would have been much better for her as she was too embedded in too many places to be able to do what needed to be done. It would have been like going to rehab where the therapy is for the body and mind and then when you have a clear mind and body you can recognise the unhealthy relationship to substances etc. With new skills its easier to notice and reject the friends and environments that are not good for you.

2

I think the problem was this was sold as a rom com when it was more a slice of life melodrama with a hint of rom com.

There were a lot of damaged people in the drama. The mum who lost her role as the wife of whatever her husband did. Once he retired all she did was cuss him for not having a purpose any more. I wondered how much he regretted marrying her as she was not someone that could be a companion or friend in retirement.

The siblings were so hurt by their dad abandoning them and his impact on their mum. That his commitment to his new family felt like a slap round the face and they continued to reach out and then reject him even when he was trying to build something new with them. They had every right to reject him but the level of hatred and hurt needed therapy to ensure they could have a better experience of life and not be filled with those emotions while the cause of them was living his best life.

The boyfriend who treated her so badly then wanted to have her back or kill them both so no one could have her needed to get a grip on reality.

Watching a melodrama takes a different mindset. Once you go in with your eyes open you don’t have the same expectations of warm fuzzy so therefore when the icy shower occurs you acclimatise quickly to the sudden drop in temperature because you have braced yourself.

1

Oh I agree, he did fight. And he was tired. But ai don't blame her for not wanting to run, either. He never discussed it with her. And that was something he did a lot--that was his big flaw in the relationship, I thought. He wanted to be THE MAN (I think in part compensating because he was younger, but also patriarchy) and come in and make a sweeping decision for them. But what would she have done there? Does she even speak English? After her relationship with that ex can you blame her for not wanting to lift her entire life and go to a different country when she doesn't know anyone, doesn't speak the language? As much as she loved him I think since that abuse was so recent in her past that a part of her (even if she never acknowledged it) had to be worried or nervous at the thought of being completely one. Where would she go if she found herself in a situation where she needed help? But more than that and more than wanting to fight I think she wanted independence. She had never lived alone before and she suddenly had her own apartment.

I think at the end of the day their relationship failed because they didn't have this conversation. They swept AO MANY conversations under the table. Like you said--she went on the date to shut her mom up. She went to his house when her mom was spewing all of that garbage but he never shared with her that he was scared or in pain. Remember when they were watching the musical together? And she says the man never talks about his fear and he says because he knows if he tells her it will make her fear worse. So he was trying to protect her and their relationship by holding back.
I think when you think about the phone that you know she wasn't going to go to America with him. She felt pathetic. She couldn't even get a phone by herself because she was so dependent on her ex that her phone that she was paying for was in his name and she couldn't access her account without him. Of course she wasnt going to run off with Jae-ins character. Her whole life would be that phone. Their whole thing is that they didn't communicate. Everything they did was for their relationship but they never TALKED about their relationship. Even Jin-A doing the massively effed up thing of going to visit his father when he didn't want to. She did that for him. But. She never spoke to him about it.
I totally agree with you that it was a melo and it was built around Jin-A but they sold it to us it as a rom-com. It reminds me.ofnthe drama Witch's Court. That was also billed as a rom-com. It absolutely wasn't. It was about a pissed off lawyer on a mission. There were two rom-,comy things that happened in the whole thing. And one of those was the last few minutes of the final ep when one asked to the other if they liked them.
I think this would have been better drama if they hadnt had them get back together because they still.havent spoken to each other about anything. Sure. They made out in the rain on the beach. But...? What...

1

But...? What happened next?
I wonder. If Jae-ins character had wanted to run to Jeju like the friend did would she have gone with him there? I just don't think she was strong enough to go to America. But again, maybe if they had talked about it.

1

Yes talking rather than being the hero and making decisions on his own was a massive issue re the job. He got it rushed through so even if he had talked to her about it there would have been no time to plan such a significant change in her life.

Re language and work out there I think there is a thriving Korean community in lots of parts of the world so depending on where it was she may well have been able to have some much needed down time to work out what she wanted from life and she could then have found a job, studied or whatever.

Most dramas would be one or two episodes long if they talked and troubleshooted the issues together!

1

I saw something that said the ending got changed due to the public reaction. Originally they were not meant to get back together.

Like you said it would be interesting to know what happened two years later as they were both changed people by their experiences since the split. Would they have been able to have a happy equal relationship how does he have any respect for the mother in law or trust her around their children? She had nurtured the siblings like her own until the relationship came to light then her true feelings came out. How would their relationship have been with his sister would she have been an absent or present aunt? Would they have children did they stay in Korea or move elsewhere?
I think doing what the friend did stay in Korea but go for a quality of life change in location and job. The other thing the family failed to realise is that he was doing ok for himself and had a career and decent money he just wasn’t a traditional business man/CEO.

I don't know if it was a hate watch, but i was in my early drama-watching days so I pretty much watched anything and everything. But somehow I made it through *Fashion King* 🤣 (It was probably for Yoo In-ah, if I'm being honest, haha!)

Recent one, I don't know what possessed me to do it, but I watched the entire *Young Lady and Gentleman*. I don't know why I did it to myself.

I usually drop everything I don't like. But recently I've found out that there's a factor that will make me hate watch. It's usually when the show keeps alluding that something will happen in the future episodes that isn't happening right now. For mystery it is a grand reveal, for romance it is the OTP getting together. I'm more inclined to stay because of the latter.

For romance: I suffered through 55 episodes of Court Lady to see the OTP get married in the very last one. I thought I was doing so because of Xu Kai but no I've dropped his dramas before. So it's never the acting or directing but this one factor of the writing that convinces me to at least see my OTP together (or CP as they say).
I had the same issue with The Red sleeve Cuff I would've dropped it long ago had the OTP union not dragged that long. I would've especially dropped it as soon as the Court Lady mess started.

For mystery: Grid kept alluding to a greater reveal, to something that will solve all confusions. So even if I wasn't satisfied each episode, I kept waiting and watching. I'm still confused.
The King Eternal Monarch did something similar by keeping us wait till the point everything will be ok and revealing more mysteries along the way. Didn't help but I couldn't drop.

Technically every drama is reaching towards a goal and it is hiding something in the process. Though for many shows that is obvious and only for some it actually manages to be good.

That would be Damo. It's not the objectively worst drama I've watched but its the one that made me the most angry. I mean, don't set your heroine up to be a genius detective if you're going to then have her spend the entire second half of the show repeatedly failing to put together super obvious clues about her own life. Also, who really thought it was a good idea to set entire episodes trapped in a cave? And creating a love triangle where either option the lead chooses is objectively awful so there is nothing to root for other than "everybody dies"? Yeah, no thanks.

This "kickass facade hiding limp noodle" thing seems to happen quite a lot to poor Ha Ji-won, e.g. Secret Garden and the film Sector 7. Pity, cos films like Closer to Heaven and Duellist show that she's more than capable of playing genuinely strong women.

My mum and I spent a lot of time shouting at the TV screen during the second half of Damo.

Yeah, creating a "strong female lead" who then falls apart mid-show is one of my least favorite tropes. I really liked Ha Ji Won's performance in the first half of Damo which is part of what made the second half so annoying - glad I'm not the only who felt that way!

Arthdal Chronicles
This drama did nothing but explain its own plot and still left me feeling like I had just watched a hastily cut 16 hour abridged version of a 50 episode sageuk. Kept watching it because I couldn't let go of the massive potential this show had.

Daebak/Jackpot/The Royal Gambler
This went so far off the rails it was almost hilarious. I mostly kept watching because the team behind this train wreck also made "Warrior Baek Dong-Soo", my favourite drama of all time.

Moon Lovers
I'm not even sure, I hated this drama, but I did look down on it the whole time I was watching. And I definitely disliked Hae Soo. I kept watching because I like Kang Han-na as Yeon-hwa and was rooting for her to become queen.

@missvictrix Thank you so much for putting this out there I needed it today. I was so upset about the last episode of Shooting Stars but reading through the vexations of the beanies has had me literally crying with laughter as I shared the pain of their reactions.

My most recent one was Coffee Prince I decided after struggling to get through the first episode so many times over the years that I should endure it so see if it got better. I hate watched the middle episodes but thought the rest was OK. The one I hate watched in its entirety was Goblin as I kept waiting for the epic elements to kick in. It just didn’t do it for it at all.

Like most others if I can bypass certain episodes by recapping on Dramabeans or fast forwarding I will but otherwise I just walk away as life is short and there are hundreds of other shows to try.

That Winter, the Wind Blows and Introverted Boss. Interestingly, the moment when I decided I hated both of these dramas came when the FL was slapped (in Winter, by the hero, which I could never get over; in IB it was a work superior and none of the multiple people witnessing it intervene or defend her even though it's clear everyone knows it's disgusting and wrong). Winter was a hatewatch for me after the slap because a) the FL believes the ML is her brother almost all the way through making all of the tropey romantic scenes flesh-crawlingly gross and yet I couldn't look away and b) the lead actress does ok with playing blind, but she slips up enough times that I kept watching to see when she'd make eye contact with someone or move out of the way of something, lol. Would've made a great drinking game.

I didn't *quite* make it all the way through Introverted Boss, but I hung on for a long time. After my anger over the ignored slap faded, I was either rolling my eyes, bored out of my mind, or suffering from tonal whiplash. But I could not stop watching. I didn't like the FL (actress or character) AT ALL, the writing was painfully confused and confusing, and there was a distinct lack of actual story. I could chalk it up to the fact that I developed a soft spot for the ML and wanted him to be happy, but I didn't really care about the OTP at all. I'm still not sure what kept me watching this one almost to the end.

I gave up on Introverted Boss after a few episodes. The writing was so bad that they had to pause airing for a week, so they can do a rewrite. I think this may have been the first and only time that has happened with a drama. Usually, any unexpected pauses would be related to an actor's health or some production mishap. That was just one hot mess.

Most recently: OCN’s A SUPERIOR DAY. (I hung in there for Jin Goo).
In 2021: OCN’s DARK HOLE. (I hung in there for LJH (1984).

When I first arrived into kdramaland I had a rule: start a drama, finish a drama. It wasn’t till my 56th kdrama that I had my first ‘drop’ and that was OCN’s CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD (2018). I dropped it because of unintelligible subtitles. It was the best thing because with that I let go of the burden of completing dramas. Looking back at 2016-2018 I plodded through a number of dramas especially the 20/40 episode ones that I should have let go e.g. HOSPITAL SHIP (2017) and TEMPERATURE OF LOVE (2017).
Also my least favorite drama of 2017 (and watched to the end) was WITCH’S COURT. I know beanies loved it and I am in a distinct minority but I was annoyed to no end for the entire drama the way the FL (Jung Ryeo-won) treated the ML (Yoon Hyun-min).

I tend to drop shows that test my patience. But at very few instances I have sticked to few dramas to curb my curiosity.

The drama that tops this list will be "Love (ft. Marriage & Divorce). Everything about this is messy. I have ranted a lot about how crazy this drama is and how crazier this gets with each season but I can't stop myself from watching it. I mean a hungry ghost that wanders all houses and shuffling of the leads every season, I don't know what more !!! I have endured the first season and hate watched S2 and S3. I don't know how many more seasons of this will be coming but I am sure I will watch no matter how many in a hope that all three leading ladies will get a happy ending.

The next one will be the Penthouse series. I still feel the level of frustration and boiling blood pressure whenever I think about it. I live watched the series ending up mentally exhausted from all the stress the series gave me, but returned every time.

Lastly "When I was the Prettiest". This one was a pure torture. I still don't know what made me complete this drama since I am not a fan of both the leads. And I hated the "Younger brother loving sister in law "trope. I watch, I hate, I regret, I watch again.

Honorable mentions : Melting me softly, When the camelia blooms

When I Was The Most Beautiful:
I kept waiting for the good part. Each episode had one little nugget that would keep me thinking "Maybe this will finally pay off next episode," and it just never did. Just baffling decisions by the characters.

Oh My Ladylord/Oh! Master:
OOOOOF. Lee Min-Ki always gets extra points from me because he's in one of my favorite shows (Because This Is My First Life), and Nana had just done the great 'Into The Ring' so my expectations were SKY HIGH. But even these two couldn't save this one. I did end up watching the whole thing, much to the detriment of my soul. What a massive waste of a solid cast horribly foiled by a nonsensical story and just plain bad writing.

Dishonorable mention to Hometown Cha-cha-cha. I disliked most of the supporting characters from the get-go and got really impatient with the FL after she turned on the aegyo, but I persevered right through the bloodless home birth and disappearing baby, the over-the-top Tragic Backstory, and the out-of-nowhere ghost bullshit, so I figured I might as well finish.

I tend to drop dramas if I don't find anything to like about them, though there have been times that I stuck with a drama waay longer than I should have and should have gotten those hours back.

Exhibition of Fireworks. This was early in my drama-watching days, so I didn't have the smorgasbord of drama options that I do now. It had a good OST and Han Chae-young. But it was so many hours of the FL - who was strong at first- pining over a ML pining over his dead bro's wife (second female lead) and the ML and SFL/SIL were all in angst over their feelings for each other since it's incredibly taboo for in-laws to marry. ML was dumb AF and SFL was your usual selfish SFL.

Falling for Innocence. Didn't watch it all the way through but I got to halfway point even though I didn't even like the first episode? I guess since it's because it had gotten a pretty okay reception?

I love that you find yourself watching the equivalent of a made for tv film just because nothing else was on. I did that with Now we are breaking up, Thirty nine and Forecasting love and weather because I couldn’t find a decent no longer airing drama to watch in between the weekly shows I was loving at the time. I have however looked up a few recommendations from various k drama communities so hopefully won’t be wasting time hate watching rubbish dramas for a while at least.

Thanks for flagging A love so beautiful as a remake. While I was watching it I kept getting de ja vu so I was convinced I had seen it already as the story was familiar but I didn’t recognise the visuals! Eventually I found the Chinese version again and realised that’ it was the different sets that had confused me.

This happened again when I watched the K drama. - The time we were not in love thankfully someone put me out of my misery by giving me the name of the Chinese version - The evolution of our love. All the jobs etc were different but they kept a couple of key scenes in and that was what finally made me recognise the drama. I don’t know if it is the order you watch them in that makes the difference but in both cases I preferred the Chinese versions which I had seen first.

I used to watch dramas with a friend. Not together, we lived in different cities. But it was what we bonded over, and she was basically the only person who cared about kdramas and I could rave and rant to.

But!
We have insanely different tastes in dramas, and she wouldn't accept that. A third of the dramas I watched in my first decade of drama-watching I only finished because she wouldn't accept dropping. I ffed as much as I could, even let the show run and went out of the room 😂 just to be able to say truthfully that I did finished it. I felt that hate-watching to my core.

Nowadays I finish a lot of shows that I end up disliking but it is not hate-watching. I am free to drop anytime I wish, and it is truly liberating.

Oh gosh the things we settle for when we want a K drama buddy to compare notes with.😐

I bet you walked away from that friendship testing experience once you discovered the lively good vibe that is the online K drama community. Now you can share notes with people who may disagree with your choices but harbour no resentment as well as having the joy of finding like minded people. ♥️

We're still friends, but I have strictly excluded kdramas from our relationship 😄
