[Drama chat] In season, or out of season?
I used to be obsessed with the fact that K-dramas always seemed to match the weather I was having in my region of the U.S., even though they were on the other side of the world while filming. In fact, I used to depend on watching winter dramas in winter (epic K-drama coats FTW!) and summer dramas in summertime — something about the synchronicity rang true and made the stories feel more real.
Nowadays, though, so much is pre-produced that dramas can air months after they’ve been filmed — which is good for the sanity and safety of the cast and crew, but not so much for airing summer stories in summer, and shivering with characters in the winter.
How does the season of a story play into your drama experience? Does it affect you at all while watching, or do you just take the drama at face value?
