Is Deam High really good? I'm still undecided whether I'll watch this. I have an impression that it's kinda like Glee and I don't watch that drama coz I find it too hyped up. Please tell me I'm wrong. :D

I find it hard to swallow, too. Both K and J doramas are guilty. In J doramas, female characters are often patronized and belittled by their male counterparts. Often, they are cast as less-than-intelligent ankle biters to a "superior" male (who, of course, they are madly in love with). Even in top-...
