Korean Drama

Everything I say is my own opinion!!~~

I grew up watching Korean dramas when other kids my age were watching tv shows like “Lizzie McGuire” and “That’s so Raven” etc.  Of course I watched these tv series as well as others but when my Korean drama was on, I would go to my mom’s room and watch the drama with her.  Over the years I noticed the patterns drama had or similarities with other dramas and searched for the OST (Official Soundtrack) of every drama. When I was younger I only watched dramas that aired on tv in Hawaii, but slowly began to watch even more dramas online with subtitles as well.
Now days, dramas tend to be around 20 to 24 episodes each about an hour long. Every drama will play twice a week, consecutively, at the same time (ex. Drama airs every Monday and Tuesday at 12). If the drama is a historical drama they tend to be a lot longer going over 30 episodes. Another type of drama they have is considered a “daily drama” and they are usually over 100 episodes, each half an hour long, and aired five times a week.
