@Lmangla I think we’re missing Bromance section!

kekeke... it never struck me. all my love for side characters is in the side character category. :D

 

culturally, bromance is a weird concept for me and it sort of feels like an insult to friendship and brotherhood. :sweatingbullets:  here, we have movies that celebrated strong friendships since black and white movie days and they are fascinating because it is often about how a friendship breaks due to some reason and then these men are at loggerheads.

 

sometimes, it is because the friend falls in love with the guy's sister and all of a sudden, he is made aware that he is not good enough for the family due to class/status etc and then he roars to get revenge and prove himself. or, one old movie that was a blockbuster was a super soapy saga. through a series of goof ups as well as intentional moronic behaviour, the guy ends up getting back stabbed by his rich friend and loses his house that his father built. so he vows to bring that rich friend to his knees one day where he too loses his house. for the next 20 odd years or so, through sheer grit and determination, he becomes wealthy. then he goes about systematically destroying the business of rich friend and makes him bankrupt and forced to sell his house. of course their kids fall in love, blah blah.

 

anyway, these movies/dramas are great because they have fiery dialogues and commentary about class/status and other social issues......

we are also okay with including 2017 dramas because some of them also rolled into 2018 (as in they started in the latter half of 2017 and ended in beginning of 2018). so the stronger emphasis on 2018 but we are free to include those 2017 dramas as well... keeping it flexible as it is the first poll! :) and you are free to include as many dramas even for the same award. right now, we are just gathering as many nominations as we can....

 

Thanks for the tag.  At the moment trying to list down the drama that I watched according to the year. They were  quite a number that I forgot the timeline.

Personally, I don't recommend Miss Hammurabi for Award #2. Yes, it's brainy, but it's considerate of its viewers, that is it lets us judge along as jury. It presents facts and varying opinions so we ourselves can formulate our own verdict at the comfort of our home. It's that awesome.

@Lmangla I'm starting to think we created too many options to choose from :D 

Then again, at the oscars they've got like 500 possible nominations too. I'm still surprised there's no oscar for "best catering on set"...

 

For people who're a tad held back: you can only just nominate in one or two categories if you want :)

was this an OTP that made you giggle? was there fan service? how would you rate the drama? are there other favourites among the dramas you watched in 2017 and 2018? put in your nominations why secretary kim chingus --  @Mzmeow @mushforbrains @anthurium_52702   @lolly84 @compass96 @Silver Fall @MayL @imels @lee-chan @labyrinth525 @haelan @mmac80 @Ahpheng  @MadAboutSongSong     @kaoriharang @Kasmic @lu09

Thanks for the tag Lmangla.. 

The great chemistry and the awesome acting of our OTP are the best among the rest. Everything in the drama is far beyond compare.  It's a 100 percent in its perfection. Our OTP's wedding made me shed tears. I will forever treasure this drama and consider this as PMY"s best drama. 

Thanks Soompi for all the news. 

Good evening from South East Asia!

Here's to you my sweet Chingu @Lmangla I was going to spend the day watching sad movies and then I thought about your event and here I am!!!  Although I am not good at this kind of stuff will give it my best shot always seeming to be last but I seem to do better under pressure!!   Or maybe not!!! LOL:w00t:

 

Villians...

1.  I wanted to slap her the most Soo Ji in The Great Seducer/Tempted

2.  Dead would be best... Serial Killer HJ in Come And Hug Me/ Tied with a horrible traitor with no excuse of being a psycho may even be worse than HJ Shin MIn-Seok in the new drama TIME.

3.   Pass

 

Dramas...

1.  A Korean Odyssey

2.  Misty is the best I can do as I try my best to stay away from those needing Sherlock Holmes cells.

3.  Whats Wrong With Secretary Kim

4.  My Golden Life or Goodbye to Goodbye, either one of these will do can't seem to choose love them both!!!

5.  Shall We Live Together Marry Me Now...  Relationships of all kinds and a true sense of family

6. My opinion isn't as valuable as seeing it and judging for yourself...  Everyone is unique and so is ones views...

7.  Mystery Queen 2 all the potential got used up in the first one.  And it wasn't because of the actors they are still amazing to me!  One of the few I didn't finish this year:tears:...

8.  Lets Hold Hands And Watch The Sunset

 

Side Characters...

1. My Golden LIfe - Sun Woo- Hyuk & Seo Ji-Soo  hqdefault.jpg

2. Wok Of Love...  Friends & Family Romance & Bromance

3.  All wicked Mother-in-laws or Mothers who are always worse than villains because they are full of themselves and should love and care for their children and their happiness more than their own desires...

 

Will stop here not sure about the time limit and will continue after posting at least this:heart:

OTP and secondary OTPs...

1.  I'm Not A Robot

2.  Radio Romance

Leads...

1.  Kim Ji Woon in House Helper  Mainly because his heart and caring for others isn't about cleaning their homes it's about healing their hearts...  And Nam Shin lll in Are You Human too? 

2. HJ in Come Hug Me I hope I never meet anyone like him:blink:  EVER!!!

still-17-2017-filming-location-episode-3

 

Fan Service...

1.  Scene that made me giggle... I agree with someone else here who wrote about the scene with the Choco Pie in picture above in Still Seventeen so funny!!!

2.  Scene that made me swoon... Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food to many scenes to count...

3. This is why you watch Dramas... Should we kiss first- Loved this drama an older OTP that proved that age doesn't define our passion or our opportunity to love and be loved.  I loved when he would read to her before going to sleep and how they would watch each other sleep as well.  There were moments it was to beautiful for words in teaching no one is promised tomorrow so make the most out of today.

 

The Stuff Behind...

1. Mr Sunshine is just beautiful although historical it's the deep traditions, scenery, clothing and values of Korea and it's people that are not only seen but felt as well ...

2. Whisper

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! :)

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

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.
