An act prohibiting lead characters from being merely competent in their professions.
Section 1. Definition of competence – Whereas competence refers to a person’s ability to “be good” or adequate in his job.
Section 2. Whereas competent people do not exist in kdramas.
Section 3. In line with Section 2 of this act, no lead character shall be described as a competent chef, good doctor, talented architect, etc.
Any lead character who has a profession must belong to extremes of the spectrum such as:
(a) a cold, anti-social genius
(b) a relative newbie with superhuman inborn talents who can pick up ten (10) years of knowledge in months of earnest practice
(c) a person who does not excel at his job because of a traumatic incident or because his heart just isn’t in it; not because he’s a normal person with mediocre talents
Section 4. Effectivity – this law takes effect from the moment plot synopses are announced and must manifest in press releases via vague character descriptions of “Person A is a genius doctor who hates losing patients”, “Person B is a cold, successful businessman who will stop at nothing to close the deal”, “Person C is Joseon’s legendary swordsman who will die for the King”, and so on.
