I was actually going to make a post about this after watching episiode 10 of Stairway to Heaven. I swear there were more flashbacks than new content in that particular espisode. Anyway, my beef with kdramas is that the first few episodes are usually fast paced and very interesting which draws you i...

Brief reasons for the length of K-dramas: Using baseball as an analogy, there are fans who like watching baseball. And then there are fans who like the statistics of each player. One of my friends is a numbers guy. He can answer virtually any question regarding statistics. BUT, if you ask him what ...

Hmm... Lessee: Winter Sonata's style was intentionally slow and drawn-out. It's also one of the biggies that helped kick-start the whole Korean wave, so it has intrinsic value regardless of the numerous obvious mistakes in production, etc. Whether or not it's boring to someone is really simply an o...

I disagree. I'm watching Winter Sonata right now and it is slow compared to the last drama I watched (Green Rose), but not as slow as your describing it as.
