The "Dramatic" Influence

19 May 2009 - 09:25 AM

Korean and Japanese dramas are MY LIFE<3 They are so funny, entertaining and incredibly addicting! I'm sure many of you have experienced a similar feeling right? Well recently I've had an intense talk with my school friends (most are korean) and we were very yapping away about Boys Over Flowers music videos and other new dramas that are coming out. But then we came to a touchy subject...why are we so obsessed over dramas? All they've done is consume our time and make us depressed when we don't have HOT CUTE AND ROMANTIC boyfriends to lean on.
I just want your opinions on the influence that korean or japanese dramas has put upon us? I mean~ this doesn't mean i want to stop watching them because they're AWESOME!!! But sometimes I find myself and I actually play the OST music from the dramas that I love the most and I pitifully complain to God why I can't have a perfect man and money.

Every korean or japanese drama has the same storyline: the richguy-poorgirl situation, hate turns to love, perfectlife to some kind of cancer, unfair life turns to perfect life, and all those other typical situations that dramas are always in. Its so typical~ you see in the synopsis while you're looking through a list of dramas you should see next...(at least for me -_-) But the dramas like Soulmate, Full House, Stairway to Heaven, and all those popular hit dramas are so realistic that you can't help but just to fall in love with the drama overall.

Personally, I don't think I'll EVER stop watching these dramas even though it's all acting and special effects but I think its effecting me in some sort of way and i'm sure many of you do also. Why? Because especially girls-- our expectations and requirements for any future boyfriends have to meet ALL of those in a drama, looks, money, humor, caring, sensitivity, and a good body. Whenever I dream with my friends about our future husbands the perfect man is carved in our heads but in reality there is no such person as a perfect boyfriend. So now~ many viewers are entrapped in a fantasy, man-made world where everything relates to a drama that they are currently watching and we go crazy ><;

I've also asked friends of mine who despise any type of dramas simply because they are too stereotypical, superficial, and absolutely ridiculous. Of course--I oppose their feelings towards dramas but its sort of true in a way!

So my question is-- How much influence do korean or japanese dramas have on your lifeor anyone in general? In what way? Is it a negative or a positive effect?

Directed by: Chris Weitz


Synopsis:
Warning! As the screenplay has yet to be released, this synopsis is based entirely on the book "New Moon".

After Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) recovers from her run in with a vampire with a lust for the hunt and her blood, she celebrates her 18th birthday with her vampire boyfriend Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and his human-friendly "family." However, an accident during her birthday party results in Bella's blood being spilled and the newest vampire in the family, Jasper (Jackson Rathbone), finds it impossible to resist. Edward accidentally injures Bella more while saving her and then realizes that he and his family have endangered Bella's life with their very presence and so he decides that erasing his family (and himself) from her life would be the best thing for her. Edward leaves Bella with only one request: that she not put herself in danger. Completely devastated by the loss of her one true love, Bella finds friendship with Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) and also realizes that, against Edward's wishes, putting her life in danger through daredevil antics helps her get through this tough time. But this is not the only danger she is in...

After overcoming each setback that her relationship with Jacob throws at her, Bella concocts a stunt that outshines all the others. After a miscommunication, Edward is lead to believe that Bella has killed herself and makes plans to follow in her footsteps. Edward's "sister" Alice (Ashley Greene) learns of his plans and alerts Bella, realizing that she's the only one who could stop him. They begin the race against time, knowing that if they do not succeed in saving Edward's life, their lives will most certainly be at stake, too.

Sorry, you’re too fat to eat here

Miss. bill would ban restaurants from serving obese customers

The Associated Press
updated 4:00 p.m. ET, Mon., Feb. 4, 2008

"JACKSON, Miss. - A state lawmaker wants to ban restaurants from serving food to obese customers — but please, don’t be offended.

He says he never even expected his plan to become law.

“I was trying to shed a little light on the number one problem in Mississippi,” said Republican Rep. John Read of Gautier, who acknowledges that at 5-foot-11 and 230 pounds, he’d probably have a tough time under his own bill.

More than 30 percent of adults in Mississippi are considered it obese, according to a 2007 study by the Trust for America’s Health, a research group that focuses on disease prevention.

The state House Public Health Committee chairman, Democrat Steve Holland of Plantersville, said he is going to “shred” the bill.

“It is too oppressive for government to require a restaurant owner to police another human being from their own indiscretions,” Holland said Monday.

The bill had no specifics about how obesity would be defined, or how restaurants were supposed to determine if a customer was obese.

Al Stamps, who owns a restaurant in Jackson, said it is “absurd” for the state to consider telling him which customers he can’t serve. He and his wife, Kim, do a bustling lunch business at Cool Al’s, which serves big burgers — beef or veggie — and specialty foods like “Sassy Momma Sweet Potato Fries.”

“There is a better way to deal with health issues than to impose those kind of regulations,” Al Stamps said. “I’m sorry — you can’t do it by treating adults like children and telling them what they can and cannot eat.”

I totally agree with Al Stamp~ you shouldn't discriminate others b/c of wat they look like :/
What do you think of this?
