"HAPPY HALLOWEEN" to everyone!!! Especially to my followers who keep on visiting my purple blog! Because it's Halloween today, a related thought suddenly pops in my head. Instead of telling scary stories about ghost and other creepy creatures, why not identify those currently-airing dramas and tell whether those are treats or tricks to us?
Yes! You read it right! Drama can be a treat or a trick! Just like those children on the streets, knocking their neighbors' doors, they are visiting different houses to get some treats like candies and chocolates. And when the door opens, the kids are anticipating to have some sweet goodies but what if the owner gives them nothing? No candies! No chocolates! Or anything sweet! The kids will be disappointed and hope that they shouldn't knock this house in the first place. This instance is quite the same in watching dramas. Viewers like us, try to start a series holding the hope that it would be a great treat that will give us pleasure and entertainment that we are craving for. But sometimes, we got nothing but a draggy story and a silly plot. In other words, they tricked us! They made us believe that they are going to give us something sweet when in fact, they got nothing but a waste pumpkin!
Treat dramas are the ones that make our eyes full with sugar-coated scenes, cheesy lines, honeyed interactions and sweet surprises. Remember that sometimes, there are some treat dramas that are sweet-in-disguise. These are covered with thick layers of coating and nuts. At first, the texture looks rough and hard but when you continue eating it, every bite has the taste of heaven. You just need to take your time and savor every bit of it. Just like in dramas, romantic comedies are not the only good ones. Have a bite of dramas with action premise, melo-drama theme, and serious elements, because these are only outside ingredients. Keep on eating and you'll taste the sweet fillings inside.
While treat dramas are sweet and delicious in the eyes, trick dramas are tasteless! You taste nothing because in the first place, there's nothing to taste. It's like opening a colorful and decorated empty wrapper. It's mouth-watery on the outside but disappointing in the inside.
So, what are the currently-airing dramas that treat or trick me? Check my list below ^^ (I chose the dramas in the present because my list will be so long if I used all the old dramas that I watched before.)
Don't forget to share your own list of dramas and identify whether it treats or tricks you ^^ Oppose my verdicts if you don't agree with me! Let your voice be heard in this Special Halloween post!

UPDATE : There are two new flower series in K-dramaland. One is Jung Il-Woo's Flower Boy Ramyun Shop and the other is Me Too, I'm a Flower of Yoon Shi Yoon. I don't have any plans to watch the latter (I don't like Lee Jin Ah!) but I'm waiting for the subbed videos of Flower Boy Ramyun Shop! I have a great feeling that the former would be sweet! Ayeeeeeeeee ^^ The boys of Ramyun Shop are pure eye-candies!
