We've already established why K-dramas might ruin your future love life, but is that really a bad thing? If your love of dramas has left you all alone, you can always just count on your favorite shows to keep you warm at night. Here are some reasons why dramas might actually be preferable to a real, live significant other:

1. You commit when you're ready

Only looking for a quick fling? Watch a super-short web series like Aftermath. In it for the long haul? The Woman Who Married Three Times is at 30+ episodes, and still going strong.

2. No jealousy


If you are afraid of any commitment at all, you can two-time (or three-time or seven-time) your drama boyfriends or girlfriends without any guilt!


3. They're always there for you

Unlike real people, dramas don't need to do pesky things like sleep or work or go to the bathroom. If you want to hang out at 3 am, they're ready and waiting.

4. They already accept your friends

Sometimes, having friends who obsess over K-dramas with you can seem a little weird in a new relationship. When you date a drama, it will already have a good relationship with your bestie!

5. They lend a listening ear

You can shout at your computer screen all you want, and they'll never judge. Sometimes, they might even offer wise life advice in return.

6. They believe in eating what you want

A drama will never, ever tell you to go on a diet. Instead, dramas firmly believe that food = love.

7. You don't have to split your attention anymore

Even if you were dating someone else, you would still have to set aside time for your favorite dramas. This way, it's a win-win!


Watch exes duke it out and fall back in love in the comedic medical drama Emergency Couple.
8. They know the right words to melt your heart


Nothing like a team of pro writers to script your love!

9. They will take you to new worlds


Nobody knows romantic getaways like dramas.

10. Let's be honest; the eye candy doesn't hurt, either.
