Rather than just do a surface review our favorite K Dramas, we want to go deep and analyze each episode of our favorite series. For our first season, we have chosen Hotel Del Luna. This series is on Netflix, so it's easy for everyone to watch. This series features amazing actors, an amazing storyline, gorgeous cinematography, layers of myth and symbolism, and plenty of side stories and surprises.
But before delving in Hotel Del Luna, we talk about the 14 elements that, our experience, exist in every K Drama series. Some of our favorites are:
- Beautiful actors
- Crying, by both women and men
- Gorgeous OSTs (original sound tracks)
- Food; there's lot of eating in K Dramas
- Alcohol; drinking by both men and women
- The trip and catch
- Piggyback rides
- The back hug
- Product placements
- Holding hands
- The wrist grab
- Love triangles
- Umbrella scene
