Drama ratings

These ratings reflect how I feel about a drama, not how technically brilliant I think the drama is. Only the ones that I’ve completed in their entirety will be rated. By the way, this page used to be “Top 10 Dramas” and then “Top 40 Dramas” before morphing into “Drama Ratings” on March 10, 2010. That would explain comments #1-39!

  1. I don’t see “Jumong” on your list of K-drama ratings. Does this mean you haven’t watched it? It’s 81 episodes and I’ve watched it twice. LOVE IT and everything about it. I’ll be very interested to hear what you think about it. Thanks for a great blog!

  2. First, best wishes for a fast and steady recovery and a Healthy New Year.
    Second, my heartfelt appreciation for your posts, recaps and recommendations. In my short-lived addiction (a little over a year) I noticed I’ve watched many quality dramas thanks to your and dramabeans’ reviews. And anyone who rates Winter Sonata like I do is OK in my book. LOL! Of course I don’t exactly agree with every rating – diehard Chunophile that I am – but I couldn’t agree more about most.
    My one and only DVD purchase was delicious Bad Family because I couldn’t find the episodes after 8 online. Unfortunately, I had to donate it to the library afterwards as the subtitles were unintelligible. Oh well, just another saga in my new dramalife!
    Thanks for the ratings. I now have ANOTHER list of dramas to watch, YAY!

  4. Excellent blog you have got here.. It’s hard to find
    high quality writing like yours nowadays. I seriously appreciate people like you!

    Take care!!

  5. Not sure I am on the right page but here goes…Has anyone watched a drama called ‘MAMA’ It was a weekend one here in California. I was totally turned off by this story. Indeed the whole thing (to me) was excessively emotional in a silly way. Not a situation that I could ever place into real life at all. I could not even praise the acting and wondered how the actors could deal with their roles at times. I must be wrong I suppose since the lead actress got an award this time. Am I getting too old to appreciate heavy melodrama?? I saved my equilibrium by watching a re run of Queen Insoo even without subs. That was such an immense relief with all the shocking events and harsh punishments of that regime. I am trying to find it on the Internet with subs. No luck yet,
