Guilty pleasure dramas are the bread and butter of kdramaland. The Fangirls chat about which dramas are their biggest guilty pleasures and why they still stand up against the test of time.
DAY 5: Guilty pleasure drama that you love to watch, even though you know it’s flawed.
KdramaJen: Yeah. This one is easy for me. It’s Boys Over Flowers. I feel guilty watching such blatant bullying and over-the-top scenarios, but even with all its flaws, BOF is a classic.
A guilty pleasure genre for me, though, is idol dramas. They are almost always full of wooden acting (although some idol/actors blow me away occasionally), but I just love them.
CLKYTTA: I have to agree on the idol dramas, I love them too! Monstar is my guilty pleasure drama, I loved it even though the acting wasn’t the best, let’s be honest, Junhyung isn’t going to win any Oscars but his facial expressions are awesome. I love a drama where the side characters have their own stories and everyone joins together for a good cause, and this was one of my earliest dramas to watch so I’ll always love it.
Jennie: I have so many. Maybe I like things I shouldn’t because I hear people complaining about certain characters that I love. Dream High Two is the first that comes to mind. I fell hard for Jin Woon in that drama. He became my first ever bias. Next is Flower Boy Ramen Shop. I was 100% Cha Chi Soo from the start. I still love Surplus Princess, even if the ending sucked and she was with the wrong guy. I could go on, but I’ll leave it there.
Drama Geek: Probably the Hong sisters dramas for me. You’re Beautiful, The Greatest Love, My Girl, My Girlfriend is a Gumiho & Master’s Sun. They are all flawed (some more than others) but they are my go to happy place. I don’t really re-watch dramas that often, but if I do, I find myself turning one of these on.
Kmuse: Heartless City (Cruel City) is my #1 guilty pleasure. There are so many ginormous plot holes (way to many undercover detectives for one) and yet I always go back for more. I guess this is one of the few times I turn my brain off and just enjoy a khottie stabbing people with a knife with little purpose.
Share you guilty pleasure dramas! You know you want to. Also check back tomorrow for Day 6 of our 30 day challenge.
See you tomorrow,
