LOL When one addict lures another poor soul … :wink:

I don’t know any longer how many Asian dramas I watched in the past 12 years now. I stopped counting. I tried making a list at MDL, but confronted with the time invested I gave up. Maybe I am at the same level as your friend, who knows. I watch way too much and then not enough. :smiley:

hahaha yes, you probably are!
It’s because I started in 2018, it was kind of easy to remember and make my list, and now I just have to update it and I enjoy making it so… hahaha

I made one two days ago, and I finished everything pretty quickly because I had been keeping a list of my own, on a Word document. Show title, year, number of episodes, synopsis and my take on it or my review if I had written one.
So it was easy just to copy-paste the titles and then add them.
The Word document didn’t give me any stats or a way to count the total numbers, though.
So I was really shocked when I learned that from late 2015 to this day I have spent the equivalent of one full year of my life (16-hour day, leaving 8 hours for sleeping, going to the toilet, feeding the cat and grabbing a snack for myself to eat in front of the screen) watching dramas.
See?

WOW :scream: that’s a LOT! I’m still a baby fangirl, but I was pretty suprised to know that I had spent almost a hundred 12-hour days watching kdrama in only one and a half years :flushed:

I am not that “organized” in this and in the beginning, I often watched at YT and stored the link. Unfortunately sometimes I didn’t have the right title, some translated literally, I watched a bunch of Japanese stuff I had nothing to verify with later, much later I found pages listing dramas in categories, year, country, actors …

You are brave for looking the facts into the eye on how much time you spend, looking at your “discussion summery” and mine to compare I discovered I almost spent a month of reading here in discussions.
I still have a list pretty much accurate based on my memory, but only containing J-K-TW-dramas, not to mention Thai-lakorns.
Maybe I should copy that list in a Word document, but at the moment discussions is already a luxury as well as keeping up in watching dramas.

Will see, if I ever try again making a MDL or if I bail out.
I don’t even know, if I will still be able to access that one.

Well 293 shows, I remember vaguely that I was around 260 shows after 4-5 years, very vaguely though.

This is counting the 18 I dropped, the 13 on hold (let’s see whether I will complete them) and the 6 watching now.
The completed ones are 254 and movies 88 so yes, close to your experience.

Still. If I had dedicated hafl of that time to studying Korean, I’d be an expert right now. But hey, watching dramas is more fun than studying lists of verbs and adjectives.

Okay, I guess I can’t escape the “curiosity killed the cat” effect. I know it will take a while, a good while …
I am starting with the most incomplete show list I got the Lakorns, J- and TW-dramas and so on. Actually I did try to add the Koreans, but it’s taking so long since I watched so many, in the middle of the letter A, decided to just go with the short list first to have fewer tabs open.

I am now at 36 dramas/lakorn, and it’s already a month of my time …
Oh gosh, I feel like eating some unhealthy stuff, thank goodness my “treasure box” is empty now. I need to go grocery shopping later, I can’t say what will be in my basket later for “guilt compensating”. I always think of drama watching as guilty pleasure.

When I was a newbie 17-18 years ago, Lovers in Paris was my very first KDrama. I watched the dubbed version in my local language. As I go along with my KDrama life, my very first criteria is FAST PACED meaning I will not fall asleep or even close my eyes for 10 secs :sweat_smile:

I love watching action-thriller, crime dramas, wise life series like Hospital Playlist, historical as long as it’s rom-com but not too much. Tear-jerker not that much…

I normally checked ratings or sometimes reviews in dramabeans, koalaplayground, mydramalist etc etc

This updated list helped me a lot in choosing my next drama to binge-watched (only if the drama is completed) Highest-Rated Korean dramas (cable) of All time [UPDATED] (kdramapal.com)

Some of my “fave” dramas are:

  1. Secret Garden
  2. Signal
  3. Hospital Playlist
  4. Voice S1
  5. Mr. Sunshine
  6. Her Private Life
  7. The Guest
  8. While You Were Sleeping

Take note: Picking up my fave dramas doesn’t mean I’m rewatching :slight_smile:
