drama tropes 2019

Recommended Posts

hi ya chingus! dramaland is full of tropes and some of which we can predict in our sleep! hahhaha... but still there are some we love, some we roll our eyes at and some we just hate. but they make up our favourite dramas. so just like last year, we are going to see if we as a community can come up with 100 tropes we love and hate.

 

#1 -- the lazy second lead: okay, so yes, the second lead is all nice but he's lazy. why? he has been with the female lead for years and never made a move and just when the male lead shows up, he decides to make a move. so he wasted all this time for what? lazy! :tounge_wink:

see, that was easy right? so add to the list (don't forget to mention the number), you can create a meme or just say why you like it or hate the trope. it can be one sentence or a small paragraph. (about 250 words max!!!). don't worry about your english. and if you are tech savvy, you can add a gif or screenshot or vid from your favourite drama as examples. tag a friend and get it rolling! have fun!

There are so many of them!! So if I post another lazy second lead, does the number become #1a? Or a new number 2? New number is for new trope?

ah we are building a list! @DeePlatonicFan ~ just edited your post to include numbers. so people can keep adding to the list..

 

#2 - memory loss -- it is silly but am partial to the angst caused by memory loss when it is done right. a drama that I really enjoyed was birth secret. she was so confused to find this husband and child and could  not believe that she married such a man considering she is super educated, genius and rich.. her journey was actually fun to watch.

#8 Also OTT Shipper mom's - Shipping captains for the OTP in question. These moms balance out the no so cool mom-in-laws who want to break up the couples.

 

 

These shipper moms will make them kimbap rolls, pack kimchi and side dishes and hide all the short comings of their kids! And also shock us all by pushing them closer!

this trope really drives me nuts because it makes it seem like love has some restorative powers. if that was true, won't the world be a better place? guess, it is just fantasy no?

 

here's the list so folks can get numbering right!

#1 - lazy second lead

#2 - Memory loss due to a certain accident or trauma.

#3 - Annoying prospective mother in law who tries to break up the couple.

#4 - Annoying 2nd leads (be it male or female) who tries to break up the couple. 

#5 - Bad boy turn good cos of the girl. 

#6 - Love at first sight.

7 # Make Over 

#8 Also OTT Shipper mom's -

for every break-up specialist, there is a matchmaker momma? hahahahha.... but what to do when you agree with the break-up specialist as the couple does seem idiotic? as in the reasons seem actually sane and practical? :sweatingbullets:

and some of these matchmaker momma get so excited that they pick the wrong guy! maybe they just want to shop for the wedding hanbok! :D

Can we add husbands always cheating in daily dramas so that the main OTP get together in the end? Or a face off?? Someone changing another person's face so that they can hang on to this person. And of course, it includes amnesia lol:mrgreen:. @Ameera Ali knows what drama I'm talking about lol:sweat_smile::joy:

#16 Serial killers or psychopaths are already hot Oppas lol. 

 

Their backstory is always interesting. It's either: they have been raised in an abusive environment; they enjoy killing people just for fun; or they kill someone accidentally and the cover up goes wrong so they end up killing some people down the line lol:sweat_smile:
