Dramas That Waste Your Life – Avoid these to save your sanity
Today I’m going to talk about TV series that waste time to watch and share a couple of mishaps I got myself into whist drama-watching in the past. Here are some of them I remember watching (and really wanted to slap myself for). Some of these fall into the “big disappointment” category, which isn’t too bad, wherein others have fallen squarely into “so effed up I am ripping my hair out but somehow still watching”. I’ll give you some tips on what to avoid and name a few titles that have proved endless heartbreak and headdesking.
If you are someone who CAN NOT stand unrealistic, happy-go-lucky, exaggerated antics, then I’d advise you to steer clear of Skip Beat (Exavagant Challenge), Mei-Chan’s Butler, Switch Girl and Fondant Garden.
Tragedy + Palace/Republican drama, not a fantastic combination. Ahem, I’m talking about you – Bounty Hunter, Hidden Intentions, Emperor’s Harem and Tai Ping Gong Zhu De Mi Shi.
Angst overload. Please do yourself a favor and avoid mother-daughter in law stories, and especially be careful of lunatics in the household (they will drive you crazy). Yes. Tears of a Bride, My Daughters, Dang PoPo Yu Shang Ma, Flash Wedding (Shan Hun) and Symphony of Fate, that means you.
And, remakes of popular stories are 90 percent NOT in your favor. Fall in Love With You is a perfect example of no chemistry, bland acting, and no emotional entanglement with any portion of the storyline.
So why did I bother watching these – or in some cases, finished the whole darn series? The answer lies in one or more of these nasty tricksters.

Drama addicts, be on the watchout for poorly made dramas that suck you in via on-the-surface offerings. Go in with the philosophy of “I won’t settle for anything in dramaland unless I really enjoy it” and you’ll be able to save your valuable time completing more productive tasks.
