7 times K-dramas make us act like overly emotional children

For better or worse, watching K-dramas brings out some pretty intense emotions in us. Somehow, they turn otherwise rational and responsible people into impulsive and moody creatures akin to 5-year-olds. If you've ever been around young children, you've seen how kids just can't quite hide or contain their emotions. The secret is that those emotions don't suddenly go away when you're an adult. You still feel like pinching the person next to you when they don't share and throwing a tantrum when you're tired and hungry, socialization has just taught you how to hide it. Well, here are 7 uncontrollable emotions we just can't hold back while watching K-dramas! 

1. The uncontrollable joy that makes you want to dance like a child when they get their first taste of candy.  




2. The extreme frustration that makes you want to throw a tantrum like a 2 year old when things don't go the way they want them to. 



3. The impatience you feel when you have to wait for what you want and are getting very close to having a meltdown because it feels like it will never come.



4. The confusion you feel when you have to choose between two great things, like ice-cream or cookies for desert, and you just can't comprehend why you can't have both. 



5. The exhaustion and crankiness you feel the next day when you fought being put to bed all night because you didn't want to miss a moment of fun.



6. The obstinance and stubbornness you feel when you are being made to say you're sorry, but you're really not. 



7. The total inhibition you display that is usually reserved for either the very young, very old, or very drunk about your K-drama obsession.  


Have K-dramas made you feel more "young at heart" (to put it nicely)? Comment below!

  3. ㅋㅋㅋ I always say that K-drama has turned me into the teenager I never was. I am incredibly lucky though to have many, many RL friends and colleagues who watch drama and listen to K-pop. It allows me to not seem so weird to all my other friends because my drama-watching friends completely understand. Get me talking about drama and I am totally Kim Sun Ah in that last frame...I really need to finish "City Hall" sometime I think...

  4. My aunt is like: "You can't act like that. you're not a kid anymore" (and with all the seriousness of the world). It seriously ruins my mood but within 1 minute back into my k-drama, and I'm good to go.

  5. "Have K-dramas made you feel more "young at heart" " DEFINITELY! I'm a 46-yr old man who's now been watching K (and now T) Dramas for just over a year, and the female 20-ish friend who introduced me said she loves that "I love K Dramas like a 14-year old girl"

  6. WHAT?! You haven't finished City Hall?! Only one of the Best.Endings.Ever. An intelligent, female-focused story that still wraps up with a gloriously OTT romantic climax. And 80 Dramas in, Booranhan Sarang is still my favourite title track

  7. ㅋㅋㅋ I started and then got REALLY busy! I manage maybe two drama episodes a week. Maybe. I want to finish it, I really do...I just haven't had time. I also started probably a million dramas...and then got side-tracked. I know, I know, lame excuses, but I love both Cha Seung Won and Kim Sun Ah, so I will finish it.

  8. Haha… I relate to this more than I should probably admit. I also thought of a #8: the giddy pre-teen-girl delight & squeals when the characters who BELONG TOGETHER have little moments that show their relationship is growing in that direction.
