drama tropes we love and hate!

Recommended Posts

Ahahaha.. you guys are so fun! 

 

@supergal99 I love the second pic, that library fall scene is epic for GBC. 

 

@triplem hahaha.. the shower scene basically is a fan service!

 

#43 Love contract

It's all begun with a contract and love sparks gradually out of their control. 

 

#44 co-habitation

I love when the OTP starts to move in and live together seeing each other true nature. :D

@Lmangla that pullover was also worn by the Goblin (red) and Lee Jongsuk (powder blue, in Weightlifting Fairy cameo), making it the It(chy) Shirt of 2016.

 

#40 Everyone eats at Subway

 

#41 Kim Nam Gil is the Korean Sean Bean

He dies in 16 out of 26 credited works. I'm sorry, oppa, we can't protect you from this cruel world.

 

 

kekekek.... @jeijei - powder blue or red doesn't look bad but that lime green sweater really makes it look it is part of some children's party costume. :sweat_smile:where is @kokodus? how is she not coming after me for using oppa's bad sweater pic? ahahahha.... and I miss the old dramas when everyone ordered black bean noodles and dumplings. don't folks eat that anymore? guess, they are busy eating subway? and lol, kim nam gil died lots of time in live up to your name that hopefully, he got his tragic streak out of his system. maybe? :lol:

 

#46 - han river is the place to be.

are you sad and want to cry bucket of tears without smearing your makeup? han river. are you feeling depressed and want to have a beer or cold coffee and have your soul chilled by the wind that blows so you feel better? han river. you want to meet your lover who your parents hate but you just have to meet with him secretly? han river. you have to meet someone in your revenge plot scheme who may or may not be useful? han river....

everyone meets at han river whatever the occasion and mood.

#47 This one I think is kind of creepy. Fauxcest as a way for an OTP to get together. I say this despite watching dramas which have featured this trope, and enjoying them even. (FIS, MGL) :)

@Lmangla I was going to say that Oppa looks great regardless of what he wears, but yeah it's a known fact. LOLOL. And I've registered this fact like a million times here. Haha

 

#49 Cancer

 

The only disease known to doctors in kdramaland is cancer. The other one is Appendicitis. LOL.

I deleted that @Lmangla I'm sorry for not reading it properly.. hahaha

 

So.. let arrange the number.. hmm... err.. what's the number?? Lol

 

#... Noona-Dongsaeng

Age is just a number when it comes to love. I find this noona dongsaeng romance is quite a trend for some seasons. Some even turned from reel to real. But how do we call if the position is reversed, the male lead is 10 or 15 years older than the female lead, no one call it as oppa-dongsang romance nor ahjussi romance. Lol

 

# ... first female lead destined to get less fashionable

Lol, I wonder when the star got her first role, most of female lead dressed so less fashionable, they're more casual and comfortable style, not all of them but most of them.

The yellow umbrella! She’s the one 

this has its roots in American pop culture . If you have seen  How I Met Your Mother , you’ll know that the yellow umbrella was always used to represent the Mother !

@stargazer187 ~ no worries. have added noona donseng as #45 and your new one as #52. @triplem - have noted yellow umbrella as 53.

@kokodus -- LOL... got some romantic bone okay! :tongue: hahahaha.... scratch that, have no romantic bone. if some guy gave me a stuffed toy, I would start giggling - no cute sighs. hahahahah. find many of these dolls kind of creepy - am traumatized by those horror doll movies. so will not sleep with any in my room! :lol:

 

#56 - the gang of 4

it is like 4 musketeers. if it is a weekend drama, there will almost be always 4 romances. somehow they are all related. maybe siblings. maybe high school friends. maybe live in the same building. somehow they all fall in love at the same time. pull of the moon or some alignment of the stars? hahahaha....

 

for audience, it is like buy 1, get 3 free deal. best part is even if you can't stand the main leads couple, there are still 3 other romances to watch which can be enough to get you through 50 episodes...

#57 Faulty CPR.

 

I'm pretty sure CPR is only an excuse to give the leads their first kiss in most of the dramas.
