(This is a new type of post where we feature a kdrama and/or its characters and its non-adherence to kdrama laws. If you want to add more crimes, defend the kdrama, or suggest punishments, sound off in the comments section.)
Queen In Hyun’s Man (heretofore referred to as QIHM) and its cast is now on trial for refusal to follow kdrama convention.
Section 1. Possible offenses
(a) Multiple counts of Kissing Just For The Heck of It.
In direct violation of The. Kiss. Law. where it is clearly stated that lovers must kiss IF AND ONLY IF they have undergone episodes of uncertainty and angst or threat of separation, the OTP of QIHM have been spotted kissing each other on numerous occasions, sometimes in the pretext of saying goodbye, never by accident, and with both parties conscious and actively participating.
(b) Immediate Acknowledgement of Feelings
In direct violation of Denial of Feelings Act where characters are expected to brood for a couple of episodes on pointless reasons why they cannot possibly be in love with the opposite party, the QIHM OTP simply acknowledged their feelings without fanfare and deprived the kdrama audience of the usual brooding fodder.
(c) Unprecedented use of handphones
Despite adherence to the Communication Devices Act via Interfering Friends Who Do Not Inform You of Important Calls and Missed Calls of Doom, QIHM used handphones in an unprecedented manner to facilitate a reunion between the OTP.
QIHM has caught the kdrama audience off-guard and spurred numerous debates regarding its final use of handphones. Debates are tiring things that force busy people into wasting time on arguments; time better used for watching more kdramas. The kdrama audience may therefore demand recompense from QIHM, its cast, writers, and staff.
Section 2. Proposed punishment
(a) For failure to provide the usual amount of brooding as stated in Section 1b of this document, Kim Boong-do aka Ji Hyun-woo must use a time-traveling talisman to jump forward two (2) years into the future after his National Service and provide the kdrama audience with two (2) times the usual proof of his military training as stated in the National Service Amendment Law, preferably via broody showers or swimming scenes.
(Clarification: two times the usual proof does not mean sixteen-pack abs but twice the normal frequency of shower scenes.)
(b) For participating in this unconventional kdrama, Choi Hee-jin aka Yoo In-na must strive hard to top her performance and chemistry with Ji Hyun Woo in QIHM by working hard in other projects, in an effort to take responsibility for the audience’s QIHM-withdrawal.
(c) For refusing to let the kdrama audience move on due to their unforgettable story, both Yoo Inna and Ji Hyun Woo must have smart and cute babies and live happily ever after in the footsteps of the Kim Seung Woo-Nam Joo couple, against Showbiz Relationship Convention.
(d) For producing this crackdrama, the QIHM staff esp. screenwriters must henceforth continue producing at least one (1) kdrama per year in the same or greater calibre as QIHM.
Section 3. Call for witnesses, defense, and jury
floor comments section is now open for anyone who wishes to witness or cite more crimes of QIHM, defend this kdrama, and/or suggest punishments.
