I'm not offended, I just disagree. :) The drama vs regular distinction simply doesn't ring true for me in my lifetime of experiences. It's artificial, although I can easily imagine, say, a poor ahjumma selling kimbop on the streets speaking with some loud obnoxious voice or something. But it's simp...

if you say "i want to cook the meat. it's okay you don't have to cook for me" they'll let you. heck it's saves the waitresses/waiters the time of having to do extra things. they won't feel offended by it.

I feel embarrassed... :pale:
I think it's because sometimes I feel that people I know are "moving on" with their lives, and here I am in "la-la-la drama land". But I'll admit to this... dramas are fun to watch.

p.s. d-addicts is a cool site.

sure it happens in j-entertainment. though they're less inclined to admit it than k-celebs.
but in the end gotta note: it's the entertainment business, and looks are one of the commodities.

The format is this way because it's designed for Korean audiences. Also in Korea It's always been about the story-telling, the building up of characters pasts/background/relationships - so the audience can really get to know the character. Even before the boom in Kdramas going abroad, this has alway...

Review for the 1st episode: A good but not great episode. A bit ridiculous but enjoyable. The only problem for me is the 'yaoi' thing going on between Nagase and Tegoshi. I just hope that they tone it down a little in the next episode. Overall, it's still early to judge wether this drama will turn ...

That gives them the right to take away freedom of speech and assembly? I don't know how much of Korean history you know of or if you're Korean or not. But this law does not eliminate the right to protest and free speech stuff. If anything Korea has a very strong protest culture. As for free speech ...

yeah, i honestly haven't watched much this season. I am getting SICK of idols in the dramas that are just there so the girls can drool. The thing that bothers me, like what many people have said, is that there are very few original plots recently, and they don't use aspiring actors who are striving...

Hmmm... aren't people forgetting that there is a communist country right across the boarder. Personally I think it is necessary because you have no idea how many Kim JongIl spies or supporters are in Korea (versus how many S. Korean spies are actually in N. Korea, given that N. Korea is such a close...

I'm just wondering about the series of the week...

For example the newest series of the week poll, 4/17/05...

Does that mean that the new series will start seeding at 4/17? Or does it depend... because last time I checked here it was down.
