The K-drama universe is evil. Why? Because once youve stepped into that world, there is no return. There is no escape. Your life will be forever subject to the madness within. I tried to escape once. . . it wasnt pretty. I attempted to watch a US show again, but I discovered that everything I once knew was ruined because I was so used to the structure and style of K-dramas. Im sure youll recognize quite a few of my struggles as you read below.
Lets start with the basics, shall we? The plot in a K-drama is like the perfect cupcake. Not too long, not too short. Mainly, this is due to the fact that there are usually only 16-20 episodes. Each episode is around an hour long, so time is an issue; but because each episode connects to the larger plotline, nothing is wasted. Once the plotline is finished, the show is over and you can feel satisfied.
