    The Accidental Couple/That Fool, Hogu's Love, Secret Garden, and Emergency Couple I found at least mildly enjoyable if not my favorites. What's up fox? was okay too. These are all kdramas.
    You have to be in the right mood for dramas, and find which ones you like. You might never like them, I know I have mostly given up on them cause so many are so ridiculous. I don't know how many ended up on my to watch list only to end up on my "never again" list.

    My country's drama sucks.
    Its either cheating story that got found out or stupid plot revenge.
    Got bored of those recycled plots and stupid female leads.
    Its also the same with kdrama's and jp ones.
    I hated chinese so dont bother asking if i tried watching one. The closest would be movies from Jacky Chan or the funny guy from Shaolin Soccer.

    I'd rather watch anything from FYI or History than any dramas.

    Korean drama's adaptation of Liar Game is great though. Yes it's kind of an original story that just takes inspiration from the original Japanese Liar Game Manga. But it's great.
    Anyway, yeah, you start at the wrong drama.

    I rarely watch k drama, but Two Weeks, Secret Garden, A Gentleman's Dignity, Dong Yi, Jewel in the Palace, and The Moon that Embraces The Sun is only my favorite until now. People told me Goblin is good too, but I read too much manga and novel so I can't believe goblin is a cool guy.

    Maybe the one that you watch is the drama that have hundred episodes that intended for housewife and I must agree, those kind of k drama is horrible. Mainly because I never satisfied with the antagonist ending.

    (Oh, and I see someone recommend Money Wars. That's pretty good to. Old drama but I like the story)

    For me it's Asadora ( japanese morning drama ) as my favourite, nothing else, no K-drama, no C-drama, no Common J-drama

    I was in the mood. But the show ruined my mood as well as my appetite.
    FYI AND HISTORY CHANNEL IS NICE except for the stupid alien stuff.
    Lol the first drama I watched was from my country and at least it wasn't so cringey. Anime adapted to drama isn't that bad. I'm just not too much of the drama and romance type.
    That's why it's on the tv. Young people don't watch tv. I'd rather watch bloody stupid reality shows tbh
    Lol what's that

    The dramas in my country are always about romance and I noticed that the third party (male/female) is almost always a psychotic. So I guess, Kdrama is better. But I always get frustrated with the personality of the characters. Most often, they are inconsistent. Like for example, the female lead is a kickass at the start of the story, but when she met the male lead, she suddenly became a damsel in distress. I'm used to watching anime so I can't help but notice that flaw.

    I just avoid drama of any country. Cause its really just soap opera type of story like. Over use of tragic plot twists. They want to have knee jerk reactions to every plot twist and they are try hards about it. That bobby lee thing someone mention was a funny parody of the genre of korean dramas but imo applies to almost all countries with drama.

    imo they are like the trashy romance novels you buy dirt cheap at bookstores. Very little depth with a bunch of cheating/betrayal/greedy scheming in-laws/ bad luck for heroines or male leads sometimes. Also do not forget the family secrets that come out way later to just fk everything up even more.in my honest opinion most dramas are trashy.

    even historical ones they just milk the time period cause its history and they can just follow it while adding in the relationship aspect of the characters from that time.

    It depends on the 'genre', you can watch a K drama without any of that
    1 Ho Goo's Love
    2 I Need Romance 3
    Chinese
    1 In Time With You : This is pretty much perfect. I cannot fault the story in anyway

    Majkang stories like you mentioned are insanely popular like Innocent Man, I like it since it was my first K drama that I watched and completed and was aware was an actual k drama lol but it is too formulaic and over the top but people usually want to watch characters with lives worse than them, Majkang dramas are K drama versions of xianxia novels but for Sadists lol

    Well you are missing out, majkang stories are just more popular. I do not watch Soap operas either, I didn't even watch K dramas for years.
    Makjang means Melodrama OVER TEN THOUSAND!!!

    Live shooting is the reason usually, the online community has a huge say in how the stories end up even deciding couples some time.
    Essentially the writers are at the mercy of viewers or netizens as they are called lol

    Oh. And I also heard from my korean fan friends that the fans, especially of those who are from the kpop groups, have an influence on what their idols should do and not do in a drama.
