When is being addicted a good thing? When you are addicted to kdramas, of course. According to the dictionary, addiction can be define as being dependent on a behavior so kdrama watching may qualify.
Drama fans sometimes describe the first drama they see as the "gateway drama." It's the show that whets your appetite for more and be warned, it is possible to get addicted watching just one episode. But that's not necessarily a bad thing.
Here's a quiz to help you decide if you are a kdrama addict or in danger of becoming one. Score 10 points for each yes answer:
Yes or No
You are probably in trouble if you score more than 40. And, I realize that if you answer yes to every question you will achieve a score higher than 100 but that just shows how over-the-top love for kdramas can be.
Unlike other addictions, as long as it does not interfere (too much) with school or work, it's a relatively harmless one. As long as you don't expect people to grab your wrist after they let you go, you'll be fine. And if your life doesn't turn out to be like a kdrama, you can always watch another one.
I knew I had crossed some kind of line when I was watching "I Miss You" and telling Park Yoo Chun's character that he shouldn't cry (sniff-sniff) and I was doing it in broken pathetic Korean. Had to laugh at myself but fellow Kdrama addicts did not find it at all ridiculous.
How did you do on that test? Do you have a gateway drama? If so, let us know.
