You think I’m cruel, but you’re the one who’s enjoying it.

Could you recommend me some dramas with little to no romance in them? I'm getting tired of the old formula and I've already seen all of OCN's dramas.

Hello. Let me just begin by saying that I love romance in fiction so I don’t really get tired of it, ergo, I might not be the best person to ask for this kind of recommendation. Also… people tend to resonate differently with a piece of fiction, some will see romance even when it’s arguably not there while others will absolutely swear to you that NOTHING IS HAPPENING. (And many writers just can’t multitask: you can write about suuuuuper important stuff while also carrying on a romance [how frivolous!!!] between your characters. It’s fine, dear writers, you can have it all, you can give us all.) What I mean to say is, how you watch/read/experience something makes a difference. 

With that being said, I would give it a try but every title I could mention has been rec’d before because I am nothing if consistent.

I will reiterate on two titles, though: Miss Korea is the one for me. While there is romance in it (and I think it was promoted as a rom-com), it’s absolutely tangential, in my opinion. You just don’t get such good writing and such great focus on the ladies every day. The same really goes for Secret Love Affair; yes, the title, I know. The drama MIGHT seem (just) about the tryst, and it definitely was advertized as a melodrama about a scaaaaaandalous love affair—one I personally have enjoyed thoroughly in spite of not being a fan of adultery storylines—it is, again, NOT THE CASE. Sorry, people, you watched it wrong (it’s your own fault you were disappointed by the ending). 

Also, sageuks might be a good choice for you, that is, if you’re up for historical dramas. They are a bit of a daunting task to take on, because they can run for way over 50 eps. A lot of them, if not all, are more about political intrigues and the resulting scheming than anything else. BETRAYAL, BACKSTABBING, LIES! There is some romance here and there but, anon, romance is part of life, if one’s up for that kind of thing (and really,  how could one not get giddy WHEN LOVERS’ FINGERS TOUCH IN HISTORICAL DRAMAS!!!). Side note: it’s probably best if you’re not well-versed in Korean history. 

If nothing appeals to you, you might want to start watching jdramas. Less romance, more everything else.

have once again been unhelpful. Go on with your day.

Do you know what I hate the most in the world? A lie. Do you know what the second thing I hate the most is? Being fooled by that lie. Do you know what the third one is? The realization that I was fooled and the filthy feeling that comes with it. You gave me all three of those things.

So will pain, and so will time.

How come you're not posting anything of It's Okay That's Love?

Hello, I’m so sorry for the late reply, I’ve been away from tumblr.

There really is not much of a reason, I’ve just been in a bit of a slump lately, photoshop/tumblr wise, and the show is actually hitting a little too close to home, which never puts me in a sharing mood. That’s all!

All my friends betrayed me and disappeared. I’ve never had close friends since. I get scared that they’re going to go away anyway.

As long as people keep on living, it’s not easily possible to erase their traces.

“We wanted to hear… your true, honest feelings. That your marriage is quite different from pictures in magazines. That the truth is, you were in a lot of pain, and it was difficult. That you don’t want Gi Tae to go through the same marriage as yours. And that’s why you’re obsessing over a perfect marriage for Gi Tae. How much you wish for Gi Tae’s happiness, I know, but, if you want Gi Tae to be happy, you need to be happy first. Not trying to trick people’s eyes with fake happiness, but real happiness!”

Have we come too far? If we go back, will it be like nothing happened?
