drama tropes 2019

Recommended Posts

I don't know if these have been mentioned yet:

 

#85 Mothers going to the fortune teller some with bad French accent to ask for daughter or son marriage prospect or giving son or daughter birthdays to fortune teller to see if matches with their intended, 

 

#86 Matchmaking dates for son or daughter by mothers, matchmakers must make lots of money they are made busy by them pushy mothers 

 

#87 Pushing someone they hate out the door of their houses, cursing them and throwing  rice, salt, or redbeans on them

 

#88 Childhood trauma for the chaebol son gone bad, 2nd lead ie: MTG in voice, Kang In Wook in Love In Sadness, Lee Jae Joon in Doctor Prisoner, Gun Woo in Monster, or lead guy wanting revenge when grows up Woo Hyuk in Babel.... mother issues... as in mom committed suicide and son found them mostly hanging does not usually show from where (a beam in the ceiling???) or how they hanged and most of the time hanged mom or dead mom is dressed in hanbok and dad married his mistress after mom died. 

 

#89 Beautiful noona loved by hot younger man or showing younger man how to love them hotly.... can we dream??

#82 ways to get oppas: be a secretary and work in his office. 

Secretary is a job which is quite popular these days.

in real life, most bosses that have sescretary are ajusshis/harebojis and not oppas. hahahahha....

Thanks chingu:thumbsup::D. They really should change Subway by now lol. Don't they have McDonalds or Tim Hortons there?? Or any other fast food chains, as long as it's not Subway lol:sweat_smile:

 

@lu09 had to check your location when you mentioned Tim Horton's. LOL a true Canadian looks for Tims! Hahahaha!

 

#94 Female Lead slips or starts falling and male lead always manages to catch her where they end up staring at each other and you wonder if they're going to kiss

 

#95 School romance where male lead is always the smartest and best looking male on campus who every girl adores and female lead is always the dumb, average girl who no one notices. Yet somehow, male lead falls head over heels with female lead. Oh and don't forget there's always some sort of tutoring involved

 

#96 Watching each other sleep and tracing their eyebrows or eye lashes (because apparently all people do this?? LOL)

 

#97 Jealousy - there's always a scene that sparks jealousy in every romcom and we all expect it and crave it. There's nothing like seeing stoic and usually composed male lead get insanely jealous and start doing stupid things.. we all find this very cute don't we? :joy:

hahha,. My Only One is a good example :D

 

#98  in 103-episode dailies, the evil guys win from episode 1 till episode 102 , and the good guys are happy in the final episode 103

 

if this is the case, I have one option of two, either to ship the evil guys (this way I will be happy for 102 episodes, what more can I ask for?), or to skip watching till episode 103  :mrgreen:

98. how can we forget nosebleeds, if someone can't figure out some solution to some problem or gets stressed the nose suddenly bleeds

99. piggy back of the drunk person home or piggy back someone deathly sick and run to the hospital instead of calling 911. 

100. In historicals women antagonists are poison experts, kill with poison. They would have made a lot of money in this century by bcoming druggists/pharmacists or run a poison control center

101. When eating with someone one likes, tell the person one likes to open mouth by saying AHHHH and then put food in their mouths...

102. Split/multiple personaily tropes IE: Kill Me, Heal Me, Hyde/Jekyll and Me, Oh My Ghost although here the person is possessed by a ghost so she changes into another personality when she is possessed

#103 Hmmm....So many people have already said the good ones! There's one I love. I'll try to talk about it. 

 

Ok. So I actually love this one.

 

So the male lead and the female lead are eating dumplings. The male lead likes the female lead. The female lead likes the male lead.

They are not a couple. They just like each other. So the male lead reaches for a dumpling. The female lead reaches for a dumpling too.The male lead touches the female lead's hand. And the female lead touches the male lead's hand. The male doesn't stop touching the female lead's hand. The female lead lets him touch her hand. They stare at each other. They gaze at each other. The male leads thinks, "Should I tell her that I like her?" And the female thinks, "Does he know that I like him?"

 

That sounded so confusing in my head.:ph34r:
