This clearly state it all. But what strike me the most his that when you are addicted to those Asian dramas, you entourage ( Asian friends mostly) start to look like those actors or actresses that you encounter on dramaland. The worst of it may be when you start looking for quality that may not exist in real life.
So how I know that I’m addicted lol well , there may be the fact that when I have a block while studying I end up turning my computer on picking a dormant drama in my too watch list and the next things I know I have pulled a all nighter marathoning a drama and my homework are left undone. Well they also may be the fact that when Ordering Chinese food I say thanks, Hi and Bye in Chinese. At the Cleaner I say Hi, Thanks and Bye in Korean and I kept annoying my Japanese friends with random Japanese words.
So there’s also the fact that random people on the street seems to look like that character or that character. Or when sitting in the subway you catch yourself super listening on strangers conversation to see if you can understand them when they are speaking Chinese, Korean or Japanese.
