Exposes the ugliest side of South Korea's shallow and materialistic society. Plots are recycled from previous shows, making the storyline overly predictable.Usually the series are 20 episodes long, capable of putting one to sleep.
Women are often treated as property, and are daft enough to persistently follow the guy who treats them like shit through out the entire series. Men are often portrayed as yelling drunks and overly romantic pretty boys.
There is always a love triangle, if not a square, and there is always a difference in class between the characters.
Money is always involved, and love remains this superficial illusion.
