The downside of obsession

Pronunciation: \ə-ˈdik-shən, a-\
Function: noun
: the quality or state of being addicted
2 : compulsive need for and use of a habit-forming substance or behavior (such as nicotine or asian drama-watching) characterized by tolerance and by well-defined physiological symptoms upon withdrawal; broadly.

Symptoms of Drama Addiction
» disregard for normal activities of daily living, such as eating, web-surfing, showering, and sleep
» difficulty in falling asleep,  because your favorite drama scenes (that you just watched) are running through your mind
» lack of interest and concentration at work (which is just interrupting the drama-watching, you know)

Symptoms of Drama Withdrawal
» disproportionate sadness upon completion of a much-loved drama series
» dissatisfaction with return to normal (and more boring, in contrast) life
» mild to moderate self-loathing for the amount of time spent watching

I finished It Started With a Kiss last night.  30 episodes in 3 days.  I went to bed at 2am , and woke up at 6am, feeling like I didn’t even close my eyes.  You see, this is why I am so hesitant to start watching a drama series sometimes.  A drama will sometimes set off this vicious cycle that lasts for days (sometimes  a week, if real life can’t be avoided), but its hard to predict just which one will spur my interest to this extent.  I always feel bad about myself afterwards, but even knowing this outcome, I haven’t managed to achieve self-control.


But, the ending was hilarious and sweet and satisfying.  Really zany  in the way only the TwDramas can get.  LOVED IT.   Of course, the girl always gets the guy, but the lead up to it was awesome!!  Zhi Shu ♥ Xiang Qin!  ♥♥♥♥
