Drama Ratings

I’ve learned quite a few things about myself while pulling together this list.

    1. I have a high tolerance for bad dramas. You’d think that I would stop once the drama is unwatchable, but there are numerous dramas that I finished watching while trying not to vomit. (Creating Destiny – I’m talking to you!)
    2. I’m a nerd. I was so curious about my average rating that I ended up throwing the list into a spreadsheet to calculate. (It’s 5.9)
    3. I need some kdrama friends. I realized that I’ve watched so many bad dramas because my recommendations have come from kvideo store ahjummas.

The rating is based on how much I enjoyed the drama or my recollection of how much I enjoyed the drama. (Some of these dramas I watched almost 10 years ago.) My goal for 2010 is to improve my ratings average which means that I need to watch some good kdramas. That’s where I need your help! Let me know what should be on my 2010 drama watch list to up my ratings (and feed my nerdy fascination with numbers).

    How about adding Alone in Love and Resurrection to your 2010 to-watch list?

    • May 10, 2010 1:23 pm

      Hi doozy – Good choices! I have those already downloaded and ready to roll once I get some time to pick up new dramas. Have you seen both of these?

        I’ve seen both and highly recommend them! Oh man, I hope I’m not gonna have to eat my words later when I say this… you are not going to regret the time spent watching these two. Can’t wait to read your thoughts on them!

      • May 12, 2010 5:59 pm

        I’m sure you have nothing to worry about. I just started watching Alone in Love and LOVE IT!

    Hhmmm…..both Conspiracy In The Court & Invasive Inquiry Agency scored a 10. Gonna put them on my Must Watch List.

    really can’t sit through Alone In Love though. So boring for me but a lot of ppl seem to like it. Care to share why u like it? Might just try it again.

    Oh yes, watch Damo. U won’t regret it.

      Hi Verlaine!
      I’ve been neglecting the blog but I’m hoping to come back to it soon and do an Alone in Love post sometime in the near future. I think I just really related to the characters and I kinda like slow and boring…

      I totally need to watch Damo. I’m just not sure if I’m ready to cry for 14 hours.

      AND you must watch Conspiracy in the Court and Evasive Inquiry Agency. CitC is my favorite drama ever and EIA is most definitely in top 5.

    I would give harvest villa a 9.5 but I am a bit surprised about your ratings for My Man’s Woman I am currently watching this drama I have never thought I would like it in the first place but now I absolutely love it the acting is very solid and the story is so real so I am wondering why you did not like it

    Hi Dw4p,

    Thanks 4 replying. I’ll be waiting for your review of Alone In Love. Meanwhile, I’m gonna watch Son Ye Jin in Personal taste first.

    P/s : Crying is good for the soul sometimes……huhuhu!!!

    Oh my god! Is it coincidence? I too have the same ratings for the dramas i have seen from your list above! I was damn happy with the number you awarded to Alone in Love because it’s just too good! And yes, even if the hype is still hot about Boys Before Flowers and You’re Beautiful, there wasn’t some elements of dramas like Que Sera Sera and Alone in Love has!
    Thank you!

    wow! so far your ratings are the best compared to other blogs that i’ve visited. I love your ratings as it was not based on popularity . The overrated stairway to heaven got a 2.. and underrated alone in love got a 9.5. I totally very much agrees on that! 🙂
