  1. Nope, do not agree. I would not put Heartless City in "best" -maybe just a step lower-, would not put Bridal Mask lower than Cunning Single Lady, would not put Heirs on the same level as INR2, etc
    But then again it depends on the criteria. People that gave the grades don't grade the same. To make this kind of pyramid, I think a certain number of people should be given all those titles, a set of criteria and then asked to give grades according to a "scale".
    That said, I do really appreciate your indexing reviews =)

  2. How can you even rate dramas? What are the criteria? Your likes/dislikes? This is just SO WRONG on oh so many levels.
    Of course, I disagree with you. Gentlemen's Dignity should be #1... from the bottom. The worst drama ever made.
    On the whole though, you have the worst taste in dramas. Even for a guy.

    I agree with Mila as well.
