The Tollgate

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Welcome to The tollgate! - The GREAT BIG GRAND ENORMOUS HUGE poll about KDramas you've always wanted but never had before :yum:

 

we are more than halfway through on the drama highway for the year 2018. so how was the journey so far?

chingus, here's your chance to nominate the dramas for these categories. now if you are a drama junkie, you may be able to nominate in lots of categories. kekeke... however, some of us have hardly time to watch one drama at a time.... no worries, you can even nominate in for just one award for one category. for example, category "the stuff behind", award #2. "did they have a budget cut? why can't they have better lighting?" -- my nominations would be pretty much all the cable dramas! :lol: hahahaha...  So chingus, just name your choices for whatever categories and awards you like. :D
 

we will take in your nominations till August 5th. afterwards, we will create a poll with your nominations and then have a vote.

[EDIT] To clarify: right now we just want to know what KDramas you would nominate for a "prize". After nominations have ended at August 5th, the actual poll will be up and you can vote for your (or someone else's) answer [/EDIT]

 

Here are the categories:

 

villains:

award # 1. the character you wanted to slap the most! how silly are they...

award #2. the villain you are glad to see in jail or dead

award #3. The villain that should've won in the end.

 

dramas:

award #1. you know the plot makes no sense but keep watching anyway

award #2. this drama is too brainy and requires many brain cells to process

award #3. this drama is hahahahah drama! with scenes that kept you giggling...

award #4. if only the drama wasn't that long, more would watch this (daily/weekend)

award #5. the drama that is like a good meal and has a bit of everything -- sides, starters, main + salad and even dessert. (daily/weekend)

award #6. avoid! beware! don't watch this drama.

award #7. it started off well but ended stupidly

award #8. The drama that is so bad, it's good  

 

side characters:

award #1. you wish you could hug them and give them their own show. who cares about the leads!

award #2. everybody needs friends and family like these side characters

award #3. sometimes villains are better than these annoying folks who raise your BP.

 

OTP and secondary OTPs:

award #1. the OTP that made you swoon

award #2. the OTP that made you laugh

award #3. the OTP that you wanted to slap and secretly hoped they will break up because they are too silly for words.

award #4. The OTP that was so bad, cringy just got a new meaning: this OTP.

award #5. The OTP that lacked so much chemistry, you wondered if they even got paid  

 

leads:

award #1. you wish the character was real and you could meet him/her

award #2. you are so glad that such a character doesn't exist in real life; well, no one you know anyway!

 

fan service

award #1. scenes that made you giggle

award #2. scenes that made you swoon

award #3. this is why you watch dramas.

 

the stuff behind!

award #1. where can I get that sofa? where the interiors and settings were more attractive than the story...

award #2. did they have a budget cut? why can't they have better lighting?

award #3. who edited this drama? so good! so awful!

award #4. So much product placement, were they unable to pay wages?

award #5. Wait... where did that chaebol's maseratti/lamborghini go? And now he's driving a normal sedan?

award #6. I want that watch! where the clothes/accessories are too good that you don't even care if that character annoys you.

award #7. the product placements that made you giggle and actually loved how it was weaved in.

 

Have any Qs? Just tag me or @CamelKnight. Have fun!

Villain # 1&3 Namshin (AYHT) he did cause uproar in forum for being loved and hated at the same time. Haha..

 

Drama #2 Are you human too (AYHT)

This drama got me spinning from thinking too much 

 

Side character #1 Ji Young Hoon (Lee Jon Hyuk AYHT) he should have more screen time actually 

 

OTP #1 Namshin3 & Sobong (AYHT) not many skinship but everytime they appear on screen its screaming love.. and ah their gorgoeus brown eyes is amazing.

 

OTP #4&5 Rich Man poor woman... its so unnatural and their press conference also difficult to watch. Sorry in advance for this drama lover.

 

Leads # 1 well oh Seo Kang Joon in AYHT is just ethereal, if he come in my home country i shall take a look  :wub:

 

Stuff behind #6 : i love all shirt & jacket that Robotshin wear. But too bad not too much information on it. Just few in kdramafashion.

 

Well everything above is almost from AYHT btw. Hahaha...sorry for being so biased.

That looks fun! Well, I am not sure if I can make one. Being very busy these days limits my activity on dramaland. LOL. But I'll try to vote from other nominees later.

ah it is are you human too @Lawyerh; so you have to nominate under the sub categories/awards. we expanded the categories to include as many wacky awards so people can have lots of fun and giggles.

for example under villains category, we have

award #1:  the character you wanted to slap the most! how silly are they...

award # 2. the villain you are glad to see in jail or dead

award # 3. The villain that should've won in the end.

 

as you can tell, the awards are slightly different depending on how you see the villain! hahahah... so what kind of villain is namshin? would you nominate him for award#1 or 2 or 3?

 

@stargazer187 ~ haven't watched too many dramas either but just nominate under the awards that take your fancy. some of them will make you giggle. hahahha... :lol:

Haha handsome villain for sure keke. Actually maybe worked for villain no 1&3. Hes a bit complicated villain, came from sad family with privileged background. Hes so insecure, childish, think too much and trying to ruin his friends & families in the process. And well all because he thought robot take over everything from him. But still you dont really want him to die or go prison etc... haha...

 

You should watched @Lmangla.

Btw for yourself what did you vote? Haha

@Lawyerh ~ my choices for villains category?

well,

award # 1. the character you wanted to slap the most! how silly are they...

award #2. the villain you are glad to see in jail or dead

award #3. The villain that should've won in the end.

 

award #1 will go for the noodle heiress from "good witch". omo, she treated everyone her so awfully and she would keep slapping people. we all wanted to clap when she finally got slapped. was actually sorry that she only ended up in jail....

award #2 is easy. that would be psycho appa from "come hug me"; he is a serial murderer who wants his victims families to also suffer.

award #3 would be the art dealer with flower shirts from "switch". he was so clever that you keep thinking that he is going to win. but in the end, he didn't.

 

so just to be clear on your choices:

yea, we are looking at all the dramas that aired this year. and you can nominate any drama for any of the awards. if you can think of few drama names for one award, why not? in the end, we will have a poll and people will vote. :)

Yes. Do you have any practical difficulties in expanding it??? If not, then you should totally expand it.

ummm, well, we can't have the time period too large. otherwise, there will be too many dramas we can nominate? so what's a good time frame that won't be too long and too short either? in the last year and half? so 2017, 2018?

@Lmangla Hi Chingu When does this poll end?  I am at work and can’t check it out until later. What if all my nominations are from a daily drama. Is that ok?

I completely agree with this ! Why is there no capital punishment.

 

5 hours ago, Lmangla said:

award #1. you wish the character was real and you could meet him/her

Dr Ye (Lee Jun Hyuk) from A Poem A Day

 

The OTP that me swoon : Dr Ye & Bo Young ( Lee Yu Bi ) from A Poem A Day

 

The OTP that made me laugh : Jun Ki ( Lee Ki Yung ) and Seo Jin ( Go Won Hee ) from Eulachacha Waikiki 

 

Dramas that made no sense but I kept watching : About Time

 

Why can’t they have better lighting : Bad Guys 2

 

The character I wanted to slap the most:  the Brother from my husband oh jak doo. 

 

We should keep to just 2018. If not polling will be too wide & difficult to set up

I would nominate Doo Chil-sung (Jang Hyuk) from Wok of Love in this. Yes we need to see him in his own show, with his mother, the vet, his minions etc.
