2013 DRAMAS


2013 Korean Drama List

PREVIOUS YEARS: 2012  & 2011

These are the main dramas I’ve chosen to follow this year.

All Dramas are rated a (10/10) ★ until I am able to make a decision or til the series is completed. 

♥ symbolizes how much I enjoyed the drama.

Ratings

My ratings are my personal opinion. I’m a bit harder on korean dramas because they are really long. (20+ episodes) Alot of these dramas can be done in 16 episodes. Also, each drama is repetitive. After watching 2 or more dramas, you sorta get the whole Kdrama feel and every drama afterwards doesn’t really standout. The drama’s i rated *** caught my attention and i tot had a unique story line.
 

1. ♥  I didn’t like. Just a drag. Boring, stopped watching halfway thru. Or only watched because of an adored actor!

2. ♥♥ I liked. Unbearable at some points. but  good overall.

3. ♥♥♥  I loved. Absolutely amazing! worth watch.
