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.

The awkward kiss, often referred to as the Park Shin Hye kiss because she's built a career out of getting a smooch and not knowing what to do. If you don't know if you're watching an awkward kiss, just check to make sure if the female lead is tight lipped, wide eyed, and veeeeeery confused.
