14. Do you watch Asian drama that have a lot of episodes (ex. 40+)?



I actually do tend to navigate towards dramas with more episodes, just because I feel like those tend to leave more room for fuller character/plot/relationship development. The typical Taiwanese/Japanese/Korean dramas are about 15-18 episodes, which makes the plot sometimes too shallow or the ending is rushed; the longer dramas (that air every day for example) are usually 80-100+ episodes in which case the episodes start to drag and there are too many changes in characters/relationships. I would personally like them to hover around 20-30 episodes, but they’re always too short or too long long. But some long dramas I’ve stuck with/enjoyed include: The Inborn Pair, Mo Nu 18 Hao, Story of Time, Schemes of a Beauty, Painted Skin and Virtues of Harmony.

  1. Not at all…..there are so many dramas to watch and I prefer 16 episodes……

    But I can watch a longer one (50 at the most) if I like the leads and synopsis…..

    1. Heh you’re like me 😛 I like them short and sweet – I think ISWAK/TKA would constitute as the longest drama I’ve watched, at 30 eps and 20 eps apiece.

      But really, in a 16 ep drama there’s not a moment for boredom, in a 40+ ep drama it just drags on…and on…
