The Tollgate

kekeke... yes @Cecentre ~ don't worry about how many dramas you watched. I also watched very few. hahahah... so just put in your nominations on the awards that strike you. and yes, you can include 2017 as well :)

 

Alright then! Let's get this started!! I'll try to choose as many dramas to nominate as possible to get some variety in :blush:

Villain: 

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

Lee Yoo Beum -- While You Were Sleeping. He was a fine villain until the end of the drama then he just became silly and struggled meaninglessly to me :/ and

Spoiler

kill one of my favorite characters of the show ughhhhh

 

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

That psychopath in Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. Hands down one of the creepiest dude in Kdrama that I have watched for a while and I don't have even an ounce of sympathy for him (not that he has anything to sympathize for anyway). Lock him up never let him out again :persevere:

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

I don't exactly want him to "win" in the end but to be treated better than how they treat him in the drama: Jung Hyun Soo in Suspicious Partner. Obviously what he did was wrong but he had all the reasons to do what he did and when I watched the drama, all I hope was for someone (like lawyer Cha in IHYV) will be on his side and speak from his perspective :( 

 

Dramas:

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

Strong Woman Do Bong Soon! Love the drama everyone was so funny!! After this drama, I'm convinced that Park Hyung Sik is born for the com in rom-com dramas :joy:

 

Side Characters:

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

The friends in Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo! They are sweet and supportive!! 

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

Park Hye Ran in Fight for My Way. There's something weird with her character because she keeps showing up and disappearing randomly and then get a redemption out of nowhere at the end :/// 

 

OTP:

award #1. the OTP that made you swoon

Kim Min Kyu x Jo Ji Ah of I'm not a Robot!! Seriously this is the ship that led me to soompi. Their chemistry is off the roof and they suit each other so well! 

award #2. the OTP that made you laugh

Bong Se Ra x Secretary Yang of What's Wrong With Secretary Kim. Oh dear they are the funniest couple but the coke is the cutest thing that ever happens!! No wonder my standard for men is ridiculously high after watching Kdramas :joy:

 

Leads:

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

No Ji Wook -- Suspicious Partner. First of all, he's JCW. Secondly, find me a man who looks that hot in a suit with glasses and his hair slid back :love: Third he had one of the most respectful confession ever! 

 

Spoiler

ff2c43dabc5283c0ccdbdc31ffb258c4_zpsqs21

 

 

Fan Service:

award #2. scenes that made you swoon

Swoon as in like heart flutter and clearly fan service then any scene with a shirtless Go Dong Man in Fight For My Way :P 

 

award #3. this is why you watch dramas. 

It would be too hard for me to choose any one scene in What's Wrong With Secretary Kim because Lee Young Joon noticing anything about his secretary is swoon-worthy given how much he loves himself lmaoooo 

 

I had fun doing this!! Sorry I only got like two 2018 dramas but hopefully the JCW gif will make you all forgive me  *wink wink*

I couldn't come up with a title for all categories, so answered all I could.  Thank you for tagging me! :)

 

dramas: Apparently I have a strong mental will. When I can’t get into a drama for whatever reason, I stop watching it, and I forget all about it! I honestly can’t remember the ones that could fit in this category. :D

award #1. you know the plot makes no sense but keep watching anyway 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 #3. sometimes villains are better than these annoying folks who raise your BP.

Lawles Lawyer: Choi Min Soo, so good at playing the villain An O-Joo!  

 

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

The kidnapper in Strong Woman Do Bong Soon...  

 

_ the stuff behind!

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

The sunglasses of An O-Joo (Lawless Lawyer!)

 

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

I’m obsessed with An O-Joo sunglasses (Lawless lawyer)!! If someone could tell me where to find them… :sweatingbullets:

Just a bit swamped with work but will get the poll out soon. Having a laugh that the villains category has so many nominations! :lol: where would our dramas be without them? so we all seem to be paying lots of attention to the villains and side characters.

I admit - I made my comment to early - I feel like the best it yet to come and I hope that others named the Drama I left out... Gangnam Beauty - Still 17 - my dear Chan...

 

I am kinda sad I did not nominate them..

been really really really busy with real life. :( so anyways, the poll is finally up! because of tech, the poll is split into 5 sections. couldn't include all the Qs due to lack of tech and nominations. spread the word and don't forget to vote! thank you for participating and making this event a success. :wub:

@lmangla

 Where can I see the poll?

it is in the events section and there are 5 polls (tech limitations means there can only be 3 Qs.) look for these threads within the events section here:

tollgate poll 1 - villians

tollgate poll 2 - dramas

tollgate poll 3 - side characters

tollgate poll 4 - OTP / leads

tollgate poll 5 - misc

 

have fun!

Can the poll be modified to allow voting only those categories we've actually seen any of the nominees? In most categories, I've seen NONE of the Dramas listed, but if I try voting only in those categories where I can I get "this field is required" in the others, and my votes aren't valid

it looks like you have to vote for all 3 Qs. this is the first poll I created using this platform. let me check with @CamelKnight if it is possible to modify...

Thanks for the prompt reply. Actually, in some of the categories, I had  seen one or more of the nominees, but couldn't possibly vote for any of them. I suspect, for example, I'm one of VERY few people whose watching of Secretary Kim  was achieved only by FFing every single PSJ scene. :joy:

You should be ashamed of yourself! Park Min Young is just georgous and should receive your undivided attention!

On the matter of adjusting the poll @Lmangla afaik, that's not possible. So if you haven't seen any of the dramas, chose one option which suits your tastes best and move on to the next portion :)

No issues with PMY, or indeed with PSJ, it was his character whom I found rage-inducingly unwatchable, as fun and lovable as DIY root canal with a rusty fork.  As for just picking one, I can't do that when I know nothing at all about so many of the options. Most came from Dramas I actively avoided, so  I get to play felon by skipping the tollgate, I guess :)
