I don’t know about others, but I’ve having a drama-watching slump right now, which roughly means that most of the dramas doesn’t excite me anymore, which also means that I have no mood to write anything about them.
The problem doesn’t solely lies with the dramas, but rather me, as a viewer. I started watching dramas, a long way back, since I was not even 12 yet. I’m pretty sure, all of you too. My drama-watching pattern increased as I grow older and for the past 8 years or more, I’ve watched from Taiwan idol dramas, to China Wuxia/Historical dramas, Japanese dramas, and of course Korean dramas.
As you watch a lot of dramas, you would realize that your expectations would keep on growing, and those dramas you once loved when you first started will seem mediocre if you think about it now. So, a normal average drama is not even enjoyable anymore. I miss those times when I first started, because those were the times I just watched without nitpicking about characters arc, or plot, or pace, or everything else.
Sadly, all the currently airing dramas right now are average to me. They’re not bad, just….they don’t excite me.
I’m just patiently waiting for the upcoming new dramas, and hopefully, they end my drama-watching slump.
And…..it was just a random thought….but WHEN IS VAMPIRE PROSECUTOR SEASON 3 ever going to be out?! I suddenly miss it so much >.< and can we have more dramas like One Warm Word? Okay – I just want good dramas.
If anyone has any dramas you’re watching right now, which screams ‘AWESOME’, let me know, and I’ll give it a try 🙂 Not those dramas I’ve dropped though (Hotel King, Angel Eyes, Dr Stranger), and I welcome non-Korean dramas. It can be a Taiwan Idol drama, China Wuxia/Historical drama, or a Japanese drama.
