You are actually right here, Chingu. Thing is, writing a tragic love story requires more work than writing a rom-com, even if it is an average Tragic Love Story, mainly because the main point is for the viewers to feel the emotions portrayed.

well said chingu. tragedy written well can really tug at your hearts. you get pulled in to feeling so much of the unfairness that you want to cry even though you know it is just a story. when it is below average, you just roll your eyes and fast forward. hahahah... from a literature historical view, ancient greek plays really went for a lot of tragedies. the reason was the culture was very stoic. people didn't believe in expressing their emotions and so watching a tragedy play out on stage was a relief and gave catharsis. it allowed the audience to release all that pent up sadness in their heart and to walk back home a little lighter -- that was the original intent of entertainment. people make fun of makjang kdramas but you should read the ancient literature -- it is filled with affairs, all sorts of tragedies that could be stopped if people just talked to each other and all sorts of madness. those were the origins of all our modern makjang soaps. in a way, it is interesting that the nature of humans haven't changed. we are just as stupid as we were hundreds of years ago. it is why all these tragic love stories still vibe with us even now.

@4evrkdrama I'm from Finland. 

 

@Sleepy Owl I honestly could not even to try and finished it. I have lot of respect that you tried to watch it to the end.  Some dramas are just not worth the time.

 my drop rate has been high.  I have dropped over 60 k-dramas.

Yep well said. This is the reason I mostly go for animes with tragic back stories. I don't prefer to watch any kind of romance in dramas, series or movies but if it is minimal and subtle I can work with it. Most of the times if I am watching something and it has heavy romance, I usually skip those parts. But again it is different with animes. I don't know why I prefer that genre in animes but not for series and movies.

when I watched anime, I found the romance better structure and almost more poignant. one of my favourite anime was escaflowne and I found it really romantic. it had a bittersweet kind of ending. you don't see so many plot holes in anime for some reason whereas in movies and dramas, you start eye rolling at the inconsistencies.  in anime, those plot holes just add to the charm for some reason. :sweatingbullets: you don't question if there is chemistry or if there is a real connection between the OTP in animation, you just buy it even if it is a simple disney cartoon. hahahah....

True. I havent seen that anime. I will add it to my list. One of the reasons why I could not watch many animes or dramas nowadays is because I rewatch a lot. Like this is my 3rd time rewatching Naruto (minus fillers). In Romance anime I loved "Your Lie in April" and in tragic genre "I want to eat your pancreas". Feel free to recommend me some good animes, this year I am on my anime binge with 3-4 kdramas.

@Lmangla you are right about it, I read about the greek plays long ago. The tragic dramas or let's say stories, could actually be more relatable, not actually with the tragic love, but with the whole theme, as they would try to for more realistic scenarios and also include the more alarming issues of the society. As for rom-com, as I said I like them, but these days, a lot of rom-coms are more like a fairy tale, which lack the realistic touch. You might enjoy it, but cannot relate to it. 

 

My parents prefer comedy, mainly because they say "life is already chaotic, so we want to watch something happy" and that is actually the beauty that lies in Comedies. I lookout for good romantic comedies, but not many impress me. Some of them especially in dramas, are overloaded with romance, so much that literally nothing happens plot wise, or they just try to force the humor, which makes things worse.

As for anime, since they are animated, it opens a lot of possibilities for them to include it as a sub-genre too. Not something which you can see easily happen in live action movies or dramas, and I actually love the overall story telling of Japanese Mangas, Anime and also a couple of movies I have seen. And not only you feel the emotions in the anime, you can actually feel it while reading Manga. 

 

Thing is I don't really mind the genre, but the realism and how interesting the plot is what matters for me. How realistic the plot can be, how they portray the emotions and how well the plot develops. Of course, here sci-fi can be an exception, since no matter how good of a theory you present, it still does not stay that realistic.

I either drop the dramas before the half way mark, or don't. Sometimes there are some WTH moments that happened in dramas in the later episodes, which if had happened earlier, I would have dropped the drama. For me, that drama had quite an interesting story, but somehow, I could not really like it, I guess. There was something happening which I didn't really around those episodes. So dropped it.

I just love the education system over there,(one of the best education system in the world) and the respect and wages they give to teachers !

Guess you know acc. To UN Finland ranked the happiest country in the world (#1) in 2020.

I wish to settle over there, the country too peace and harmony hand in hand.

it has been so many years that I don't remember actually many of the names I enjoyed. I was thinking of this one series that had humans and fairies fighting wars in a kind of hobbit-type story but can't place the name. there was some comedies like inyuasha, raman and one about a female witch. what was the name? lina? I like movies like nauiscaa which is a miyazaki classic but many have not seen. total pity. most of the animes that I used to watch are considered classic now.....

 

I was trying to find a good trailer of escaflowne but just giving you the opening song which gives you feel. don't watch the movie -- that was just dumb in my opinion. the series is what makes it a classic.

I didn`t watch many kdramas lately. I was not in a good mood to watch kdramas. I will have just one drama going on (Queen Cheorin). I think of starting the Japanese Cold Case. I loved the US series and I am curious how it will be the Japanese version. I usually like Japanese series.The third season is going on right now. Does anyone watch the show?

 

I want to watch an old kdrama too but I can`t decide right now which one. Or I will take a break of kdramas until February.

I did not eat it either. I did not know what is omurice. So, It is an omelette with rice. Thanks for telling us.

 

I like rice and I like eggs so I am sure that I will like omurice too. :D
