1. [+4,942, -29] If the drama's good enough, I'll watch 50 episodes! If it's boring, I won't even watch 6!

2. [+1,258, -77] I find the 12 episode length to be too short. It's not long enough to bring any meaningful depth to the story and it all feels too rushed. It might work for romcom but maybe not for other genres...

3. [+858, -365] 12 is too short, I need at least 16 to feel like I'm watching something. I remember mini-series used to be 16 and weekend dramas 50, sometimes extended to even 100 if it was popular enough. Seems like people are getting shorter tempered and less patient as time goes on. 

4. [+121, -1] I'll watch 30 episodes of any well made drama, not just 16

5. [+98, -0] I don't think people get bored with 16 episode dramas, just that most 16 episode dramas feel like 12 episodes that are forcefully stretched out to 16 so it gets boring the longer you watch. I'll watch anything until the end if it's good enough.

6. [+91, -2] I think 'Business Proposal' was too short at 12... could've gone to 14... The dude that spread the false rumors never even apologized and the chef was sent off to study abroad.

7. [+86, -3] Could there be a drama more boring than 'Young Lady and the Gentleman'.. I kept picking it up and stopping because there was nothing else to watch in its time slot...

8. [+77, -2] The last week of 'Business Proposal' was so boring. Everything felt like a weak wrap up. They had to end things so quickly that I lost focus in the last two episodes.

9. [+72, -1] There are some dramas that are so great that even 16 episodes aren't enough... I thought the new trend of 12 episode dramas was because there just wasn't enough to write about but I guess it's a strategic decision. I guess it's better than dramas forcefully stretching out their plots an extra 1-2 episodes just because it's popular.

10. [+70, -2] 'Temptation of Wife' was 129 episodes and I loved every one of them. 'Dae Jang Geum' was 54 episodes and I loved it too.
