So, it happened again! I’m turning on a new episode and as the opening credits roll I see yet another spoiler. Why??
In the show I’m watching the leading man and woman developing feelings for eachother. But the opening credits, for season 2 I assume as the opening credits have changed, show me that she will marry someone else. That is a huge spoiler.
Anyone else who have noticed this and if so, what do you think? I haven’t seen any thread about this so maybe people don’t mind spoilers… But I do! lol
I’ve never seen that in Kdrama but sometimes the episode thumbnails give the whole show away I once watched a drama where I wasn’t sure whether they’ll ever get together and the next episode’s thumbnail showed them kissing and I’m telling you, Viki received a lot of hate that day
Sometimes when you watch e.g. a trailer for a US movie or something on Netflix it’s like knowing the whole movie because they put every core scene in it so I sometimes don’t watch trailers anymore when I really want to watch a movie
Yes, Chinese dramas always put some mayor events and the ending in their opening credits. Sometimes I don’t notice it when I’m watching it for the first time, but sometimes scenes in the opening catch my eye because they have something to do with the episode I’m watching. I usually tend to skip the opening if I don’t want to know the spoilers, but if the OST is great, then I’ll listen to it.
It depends on the spoiler, whether I mind it or not. If it’s something I’d rather wanted to find out on my own to see if my hunches were right or not, then I’m disappointed to see it. But if it’s a spoiler that will reduce my anxiety in watching in a certain scene, then I don’t mind
Sometimes they create a “special” episode, which is just a summary of the entire drama, after the drama ends. I don’t know why they call it Ep. 0, instead of calling it Special episode or summary episode or something. So yea, don’t watch Ep. 0 if you are planning on actually watching the drama.
The worse are the CHINESE dramas/movies in their intro; you actually can watch the whole episode with no need to watch the drama or movie.
I HATE their intro which are 3 minutes or more long, and you can see scenes that are a dead give away of someone dying.in that episode. I no longer watch Chinese dramas or movies I go to the intro part episode by episode, and don’t waste my time watching the whole thing but I do watch the ending episode. It tells you a lot when you can see an intro and know you didn’t miss a thing.
Yes, they do have long intros as well and I usually skip them but as I wrote earlier, I do start the drama as I’m doing things before sitting down to watch it and get a glimpse of the spoilers.
Maybe the people making these intros don’t see them as spoilers but teasers. Otherwise I don’t understand the reason for this…
