As a man who loves his entertainment, I’m often disappointed by the same old dramas that I see on TV. It seems like I’m always watching Taiwanese dramas, which are full of clichés and drama tropes. It’s like I’m constantly watching the same show over and over again.
At first, I thought it was just my bad luck that Taiwan was the only country dominating the TV drama market.
But after doing some research, I discovered that there is a very practical reason why we are constantly seeing Taiwanese dramas on TV.
It turns out that it’s all about the license. Taiwanese dramas are significantly cheaper to license than dramas from other countries. This means that TV stations can afford to buy the rights to air these shows more easily, which is why we’re seeing them so often.
Another reason why Taiwanese dramas are so popular is because they’re often quite draggy. Draggy dramas are usually quite long, often running up to 40 episodes or more. This means that viewers can get invested in the story and the characters over a long period of time. This can be quite appealing to viewers, especially those who want to get lost in a drama for a few weeks.
Sadly, this obsession with Taiwanese dramas also means that we’re missing out on a lot of other great dramas from other countries. Korean dramas, for example, are often much more unique and have more variety than Taiwanese dramas. But since they’re more expensive to license, they’re often overlooked by TV stations.
I understand why Taiwanese dramas are popular. They’re cheap and draggy, and can provide viewers with a lot of entertainment. But I also think that we’re missing out on some great dramas from other countries. It would be great if TV stations could invest more in dramas from other countries so that viewers can have a wider variety of dramas to choose from.
