Dramatic Quiz #1 – How Much of a K-drama Fan Are You?


How Much of a K-drama Fan Are You?

Song Il-Guk Looks Shocked

One of the most rewarding things about sharing the (at times useless) knowledge one has about a given subject is that eventually people are willing to do the same, and inform others. It creates a chain reaction of information that makes the fanbase more opinionated, more discerning, and maybe more demanding about what they watch. Here at Dramatic Eye we pride ourselves on trying to expand the scope of the discussion a little, by often going back to an era which has been rarely covered in English (and, to a lesser extent, even in Korean). But of course reading long-winded posts about the history of this medium isn't always the best option; we can have fun learning about the history of K-drama in other ways. Which is why, starting this month, we'll begin testing your knowledge of K-drama with a monthly quiz.

We begin with a rather lightweight affair: only 25 questions, most of which are pretty accessible for most K-drama fans with 5 to 10 years of viewing experience. This is not a tentative to single out older viewers, but to reward those who have been sticking with this madly uneven industry, and have cared enough to inform themselves about its many quirks. In the upcoming months, every new quiz will become more varied, at times dealing with recent shows, and at others going even further back.

Why reward? Because to the first 100 people who manage to get 90% of the answers right, we will offer one free month of Dramatic Eye Premium! The premium version gives you access to all our older reviews, to all future metacaps past those for first episodes (which will always be free), to the Top 500, the soon-to-be-revamped MVP, archived film reviews, and many more features which will start popping up in time for our official relaunch on May 1st.
