Hwayugi had an amazing caste of actors and should have been good. However the people in charge of putting it together went and fucked up and then some.

It started out amazingly. They had so many materials to work with. But then they started dragging out the story until I don't even know what the plot is. It's such a waste of talent.

I felt it started out really good but the bad take on the ending spoilt the whole series

The standard and quality on Kdramas this year honestly has been pretty low . Evidently Sunshine got the most vote. The quality and acting stood out as compared to the rest. I agree to the big difference between it and the rest.

I personally think My Mister is the best drama this 2018. I enjoyed watching Are You Human Too and What's Wrong With Secretary Kim. I did not expect Still 17 to be not here in the list

Hwayugi was really not great, but it was hardly the worst drama of the year.

I agree overall - except I think My Mister to be hands down the best drama of 2018 so far. Mother certainly deserved votes as well - such a great drama!
The Great Seducer had a good start but turned into just a normal romcom - not horrible but disappointing. Return - there's a drama spoiled by in-house problems and by an ending that didn't tie up loose ends well at all :( Hwayugi certainly was not the worst drama this year - I quite enjoyed it!

I actually liked a lot of the dramas in the "worst" list... I guess these experts aren't into fantasy.


And I'm glad to see '100 Days My Prince' getting so much love!

Interesting...that I watched more of the "worst" dramas listed than the "best" dramas. Must be a big difference between international views vs. native views.

Hwayugi wasn’t the best but it wasn’t the worst either. Sometimes it was a crazy plot but I liked it a lot, the ending was good. What’s wrong with secretary Kim was excellent in my opinion. The main couple was amazing, loved every minute of it!

Mr Sunshine was a mess, though. It only became this big thanks to the author's popularity and of course because of the Japanese invasion theme. They did really well with the historical part and they portrayed the era very beautifully but the main cast was just a bunch of good looking people with super powers and plot armors thicker than any other armor I've ever seen.

YESSS MR SUNSHINE WAS A FREAKING MASTERPIECE. Honestly something that deserves an Academy Award or something lol. The cinematography was breathtaking. The storytelling and the narrative were significant, epic, and profound. And the acting. Oh my god the acting. Every single actor nailed the role to death. Like how is this possible??? Lee byung hun, kim tae ri, and everyone of the cast. Amazing

Allkpop, your blatant hate propaganda towards Red Velvet is getting ridiculous. You put Great Seducer's poster on the article's thumbnail to generate reactions like mine and honestly it's getting old.

i have watched only very few of the ones on the list and from that 100 days my prince is my favorite..

i really liked the starting of whats wrong with secretary kim but the last 4-5 episodes were a total waste.. they could have made it into a 10 or 12 episode drama.. there was nothing left in the drama after the revelation of the suspense..

I think Still 17 was also one of the best dramas this year. I feel like the people who voted My Mister as the worst didn't watch past the first 3 episodes (I gotta admit the drama started off incredibly slow and I almost gave up on it but after watching the whole thing it makes sense as to why they made it that way).

Then comes The Smile Has Left Your Eyes and Where Stars Land. I'm hooked!

My Mister is one of the best and yes I dropped Hwayugi and Great Temptation just after 3 /4 episodes.

HELLO??? Why isnt anyone talking about LIVE?!!! Thats the BEST DRAMA I HAVE EVER WATCHED IN 2018 and IT IS SO UNDERRATED JUST BECAUSE THE ACTORS AND ACTRESSES INSIDE ARENT THAT POPULAR? THOSE WHO HAVENT WATCHED IT YET SHOULD WATCH IT! It’s the NUMBER 1 drama for me!!!

The actress on Hwayugi didn't feel like lead actress material. That's just me.

Some may agree or not.. But Miss Hammurabi is one of the best for me in terms of acting, character development and the story. it's not your usual legal drama. It deals about the judge's lives and the most common everyday cases we deal. it touched the reality.

My bests: Life On Mars, Live, Life, Voice S2 and Son: The Guest.

My worst: Ms Hamurabi, Partners For Justice, Lovely Horribly. The first 2 because the main lead personality was too cheesy, and the last one was ok but i started losing interest halfway the run.
