Synopsis

Anthony Kim is the self dubbed king of dramas, his record of producing popular television impeccable, and his methods ruthless. But after the drastic measures taken to ensure the successful conclusion of his company's latest drama leads to a man's death, Anthony is ousted from his position as president. Three years after his fall from grace, Anthony seeks out Lee Go Eun, the jilted assistant writer having been another casualty from that last drama. Anthony wishes to make the script she submitted to him years before a reality and duplicate his old success, an offer she reluctantly accepts to regain her similarly lost dream. The two race to find air time and a top star to please their rather sinister investor, but they also must learn to compromise when Go Eun makes it clear she won't condone the same cutthroat approach that was used previously in order to make their drama a hit.

King of Dramas does what a lot of shows based in the same world fail to do - actually play up the meta of the world of drama making. The show manages to successfully create in-depth characters who all slowly change, while using the drama-within-a-drama to help propel them along.

The plot was great, with a lot of tongue-in-cheek references to some common occurrences in the Korean drama industry. And while the show has some more serious moments, it always manages to retain the comedy that moves it along, along there to be a great balance.

The acting was awesome, with comedic timing down, and great friendships all the way around. While yes, a few of the characters were almost cookie cutter villans, even they had at least one aspect that deviated from the norm and made them interesting.

While the episode extension did hurt the show somewhat, it still manage to stay pretty entertaining until the end. While not without flaws (Seong Min A felt a bit contrived at first) for being full of heart, for having successful character arcs all while being an entertaining watch, this show exceeded my expectations.

I cried and laughed so much in this drama. In the beginning it can be sometimes a little bit slow, but I finished the last 9 episodes in one day, because I couldn't stop watching.

This drama...was okay. It was a little over the top and filled with "Seriously?!" moments but it managed to keep me hooked with a bit of charm, humor, and trolling episode cliff-hangers. I won't put it on my re-watch list but I wouldn't necessarily not recommend it either. Depends on what mood you're in. :D

I watched it to the end just becouse of Siwon. His character was daebak! I smiled everytime I saw him :P (I'm not his big fan but still he was the best :D )
the story was ok, but sometimes boring.
I liked this drama :)

It was awesome. Si Won was really funny. And Kim Myeong Min was really really really good.

It took me months to end this drama... I loved the first 10 episodes, it was brillant, original, smart and funny... then they add "melodrama" and, in my opinion, transformed an interesting and outstanding drama in something banal.
I think that was exactly when all the "bad guys" disappeared and an ex lover appreared instead.
Boring :|
What a pity :|
As someone already suggest, i also think that the production had to change the direction of the drama in the middle of it....
Still, the drama was interesting and well played. Is not a masterpiece anymore for me, now that I ended it, but still I can say i really enjoyed it.
