Korean dramas reached a peak during the second half of 2014.
One drama that shouldn’t be missed was “An Incomplete Life.” It was produced by a satellite TV station, and the viewership grew from 1 percent to 8 percent, making it a highly successful drama for a satellite TV station. The story was based on a popular webtoon series of the same title.
“An Incomplete Life” highlighted the daily life of Korea’s working class, and its brutal reality.
Two other popular dramas last year were “Pinocchio” and “Mr. Back.”
“Pinocchio” starred two popular celebrities, Lee Jong – suk, and Park Shin – hye, thus attracting a large fan base. It was one of the most watched dramas in recent times in Korea.
“Mr. Back” went head to head with “Pinocchio” but it presented an entirely different theme.
It followed a theme common to many Korean dramas this year—people’s psychological state—which is one of the biggest issues in Korean society lately.
