Writing Lessons from K-dramas
Korean dramas are increasing in popularity around the world, so much so that one (Squid Game) is the most-watched drama in Netflix’s history, in any language. They appeal to viewers in ways that authors endeavor to appeal to readers: great characters, emotional and relatable stories, original plots, world building that makes you feel as if you are there beside the main characters, and effective use of tropes.
USA Today bestselling author Trish Milburn, an avowed fan of both K-dramas and K-pop music, has used both to inspire her Idol in Love K-pop romance series and her Could Have Been a K-drama novella series. This workshop, K-Dramas: Binge Watch Your Way to Better Stories, will explore the reasons why K-dramas are so popular with viewers and some examples of dramas to watch in order to get the creative sparks popping.
