Drama Grandmas: Korean Vs Taiwanese
If you're a long time drama watcher or just started your adventure in drama land you will notice one thing. Relationship dramas always have something to do with parents or grandmas.
As you know I'm currently watching Better Man (Taiwanese drama) and I realize how it's not typical for a grandma to be so supportive and encouraging. So, I got this idea to compare drama grandmas ( K vs. TW)!

Is that meme relatable? I bet!

Don't get me wrong there are lots of cool grandmas in K-drama. However, the most stereotypical one is always the controlling and traditional type. "No, you can't date her." "Her family background is not suitable for you." "I have someone in mind for you."

Does that expression look familiar?

She's a very very popular grandma in Taiwanese drama. Most of her role is always the nice grammy who is supportive of her grandson. In general, T-drama grandmas are quirky, loving, and fun.
- They usually fake fainting to grab attention from their son or grandson.
- Always bug their grandson about dating and getting married. - Acts like a child and likes to joke around. You RARELY get an annoying grandma who opposes your marriage or one that is so tactic about getting rid of their grandson's girlfriend.

Any thoughts?
