Last month, the estimable K-ent blogger Indigo launched a 30 Day Asian Drama Challenge She shared the challenge on Twitter, where she is Helena Aneleh and got a very good response. A lot of people have taken up her challenge, which I think is testimony to how thoughtful and well constructed the daily categories are. I also took up the challenge, the first time I’ve tried something like this. Thank you very kamsa, Helena!
Like many who participated, I simply posted each day’s answer on Twitter, with the full list graphic as above. As the end of the challenge draws near, I decided to celebrate some of my choices by giving them more than 140 characters. I wanted to examine some of my choices in more depth, share clips and reactions, as well as publicizing some of them more effectively, and hopefully invite comments and feedback.
With just three days left in the challenge, I decided to pick my top ten. The selection criterion was simple: No carping, no sniping. So even though there were several interesting and thought-provoking “negative” questions, I’m going to challenge my cynical self by focusing only on the positive.
The ten I’ve chosen are going to be listed more or less in chronological order, starting tomorrow. Stay tuned!
