I don’t have a favourite genre, but I do tend to prefer some more than others. Romance, comedy, psychological and crime/mystery are just some of the genres that I’ve been into, though I will generally watch anything with a strong plot and cast. I also like non-police procedurals, such as legal and medical dramas – though it’s kind of funny people take what they see in legal dramas for real, because half the time, practice is not as exciting and there is really a lot of paperwork to deal with. I’ve also done my fair share of historical dramas, such as the wuxia dramas from Hong Kong (some of which were real classics) – however, I can’t get into Korean sageuk and am still familiarising myself with Japanese jidaigeki.
Some of the so-called “human” dramas are okay too, since they explore human relationships, which tend to interest me because I like to understand how people interact with one another and how they respond to situations. However, anything overtly shrieky, too family-centric or melodramatic (such as shouty parents being ridiculous just to break up a couple) aren’t my kind of thing because they end up being too stupid – and I don’t need anymore stupidity in my life when I already have very few brain cells left.
