If you watch enough Korean Drama you'll start getting a real appetite for all the delicious ramen that people shovel into their faces, the soju that they fill the table with and the kimchi that people get slapped with. There's even a handy graph for all the K Drama food that shows up.

Almost all Korean Dramas star strong females who are more than just love interests or eye candy. There's a good to great chance that if you're watching a KD you're going to be watching a strong female.

After the sun goes down in Korean Dramas everyone is either drinking Soju or nothing at all. Maybe it's super cheap, or maybe there's some kind of secret Soju tie in.
