Before I became jobless, blogger, wife, and heavier by 18 pounds now to be exact ( OMG! ) ... I am a certified Asian telenovela addict. I just found it amusing, irritating, funny, playful, and sometimes a little bit melodramatic or more of it. Depends on the plot but recently I'm more addicted to Drama-Comedy or Dramedy. Sometimes you can just wonder how many people are fascinated to this eventhough most of the storylines are the same and endings are mostly what you expect it to be. Ask me? that's why it's addictive cause you get fooled by it.
