Did you know that Stairway to Heaven is one of the most successful Korean dramas ever made? It continues to be popular in countries all across Asia most especially the Philippines. The drama was a big hit in the country a few years back and now a localized version of the television show is currently Dramacool being aired there.
But what makes this Korean drama so great? First of all, it has a very powerful storyline. For some peculiar reason, Asians love watching television shows flooded with clichés. And this drama doesn’t lack in that department. You have the two childhood friends who would have lived together happily ever after if it wasn’t for this girl and her evil stepmother.
Then just when things are about to get better, you have the leading lady getting amnesia after being bumped by a car. And then the story continues. This is probably one of the saddest and more heart-breaking dramas ever created. You will need a box of tissues by your side during each and every episode.
So how did this drama become such a huge success despite the predictable storyline? A stellar performance by the actors and actresses in this television show made this possible. When one of the characters laughs you can’t help but laugh with them. And when they cry you can’t help but shed tears as well.
You will be experiencing a roller coaster of emotions as you progress through this series and it is one you won’t easily forget. The power of Korean dramas also comes from the fact that they end after one season. Therefore, each and every episode should have a strong impact on you. Then the tension will build up until the final episode where all will be revealed.
An excellent strategy if used well. And it was used perfectly in this Korean drama. There are still numerous stores where you can buy a copy of Stairway to Heaven, so you should buy one now before supplies run out.
